ed, with the apparent intention of rejoining the main body. From Hunter's forces — official News. Official information from Salem confirms the main features of the Associated Press dispatch from Lynchburg, in yesterday's paper. The enemy passed through Salem on the 21st, and took the route towards Lewisburg, by Newcastle. McCausland, with his cavalry, struck the enemy north of Salem at the Hanging Rock, and captured four pieces of artillery and disabled six others so that they had to be left. The carriages were destroyed by the enemy. The guns, however, are secured--ten in all. The enemy moved so rapidly that our infantry could not attack him before he got to the mountains, though they marched twenty miles a day. The enemy did a great deal of damage to citizens in Bedford and Campbell, but not so much in Roanoke, as they were too closely pursued. All the bridges and depots on the railroad were burnt to Salem, but little other damage was done to the road.
