It was my purpose to have reached the Court-House by twelve o'clock at night; but it being very dark and raining, we got lost, and were delayed two hours, so that we did not have over an hour to stay in town, it being necessary for us to pass out of their lines before daylight. In coming out we passed within two hundred yards of the fortifications at Centreville, and were hailed by a sentinel from one of the redoubts. A Captain Barker, from New-York, here made a desperate attempt to get away.

At Centreville there was a force of about two thousand, consisting of infantry, artillery, and cavalry. In the vicinity of the Court-House one cavalry and one infantry brigade were camped. There were about two hundred just in the town. We easily captured the few guards around the town,

We also surrounded the Headquarters of Colonel Wyndham, (Acting Brigadier of cavalry,) but unfortunately he had gone down to Washington. We got his Assistant Adjutant-General, and also his Aid, an Austrian, Baron Wordener. There was an immense amount of all kinds of stores collected there ; but I was unable to destroy them, as they were in houses, without destroying the town. The horses we brought off were mostly very fine, belonging to officers. If I had had enough men, I could have brought off hundreds.

He, however, evaded them by getting under a barn, and had scarcely concealed himself when a guard of three men was placed upon it. It is supposed that they entered our lines between Frying-Pan and Henderson's stations, taking a diagonal course to come in at the lower end of the village. On leaving, they went out by way of Colonel Wyndham's stables (south-west) and proceeded toward Centreville, cutting telegraph wires as they went along.
