Orange and Alexandria Road, between Warrenton Junction and the Prince William line, cutting off the retreat of the enemy in the direction of Manassas, and that a large body of our infantry and artillery had moved down from Warrenton and taken position between the enemy and the point at which this bridge was destroyed. This statement, though not improbable, is not scarcely worthy to be considered as positively correct. We saw a letter, yesterday afternoon, from a member of Capt Parker's artillery, dated "Camp on Rappahannock River. Aug. 24," which stated that an order had been received from Gen. Jackson at Warrenton, to hurry up the remainder of the army, and not to delay to prepare provisions, as enough had been captured at that point to feed the whole force for some time. In the pursuit of the fleeing foe our forces captured several hundred prisoners, who were expected to reach Gordonsville in the afternoon of yesterday, and will perhaps arrive in this city this morning.
vy artillery duel took place at the junction of Hodgeman and Aestham rivers, between nineteen guns of the Washington Artillery, Col. Walton commanding, and about forty guns of the enemy. In this engagement we lost twenty-four men killed and wounded of the above named corps. Among the killed we have learned the names of Lieut. J. W. Brewer, and privates Taylor Marshall, Walter Chambers, and H. Ross.--Four artillery drivers were also killed. The enemy were driven across the Rappahannock, at Berke ley's ford, and were in full retreat in the direction of Alexandria. As our troops approached the railroad bridge over the Rappahannock, the enemy commenced shelling it with great fray, and finally succeeded in burning the structure. While the fight at Berkeley's Ford was in progress, and after it had terminated, heavy firing was heard on the left, or in the direction of Warrenton, supposed to proceed from some portion of our forces that had crossed higher up the stream.
