by the importance of the position to be gained, that is, the commanding Gap at Aldie in the Bull Run and Catoctin ridge. General Pleasanton was pushing on at last accounts in the direction of Snicker's Gap. The names of the prisoners we captured are as follows: Captain R. P. Boston, Fifth Virginia cavalry; Major Carrington, Third Virginia; Captain F. R. Winser, after a desperate resistance; Captain L. B. White, Fifth Virginia, wounded; Captain Jones, Third Virginia; Lieutenant Boston, Fifth Virginia; Lieutenant Turnell, Fifth Virginia; Lieutenant Douglass, Fifth Virginia, and seventy-seven privates, principally from the Third and Fifth Virginia cavalry. Lieutenant Howard and Lieutenant Bagsdale, of the Fifth Virginia, were left on the field, suppose to be mortally wounded. A number of the privates of the rebels are known to be killed and wounded.
