August 24th (search for this): article 1
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.
