General Averill is reported to be "feeling" Gen. Lee's westerly line of retreat. Gens. Ewell and Hood are reported to be within 13 miles of Williamsport, Md.

They retreated down the river road towards Harper's Ferry, and it is reported have since gone to the other side of the river. The casualties, as usual latterly, were considerable among the officers, who greatly exposed themselves leading and encouraging the men, and forming conspicuous marks fo
