At last accounts Hunter, Averill, Crook & Co., were at Buford's, thirty-seven miles from Lynchburg, on the south side of James river, making for the mountains near the Peaks of Otter, with the evident design of crossing and retreating upon Staunton.

The enemy, at this writing, seem to be moving towards the Weldon railroad. Our Generals will doubtless be prepared for them.
