Richmond, Va., July 29.
From a gentleman recently from Strasburgh, we learn that there occurred a panic among the Yankees at that place on last Wednesday week. A hurricane sweeping from the south raised a great line of dust in the road leading from Front Royal. The Yankees, some two thousand in number, thought the army of the ubiquitous “Stonewall” was certainly upon them. Setting fire to all their tents and stores, they fled in confusion, the greater number of them not halting till they arrived in Winchester. The amount of property destroyed by them in this panic is estimated at between $30,000 and $40,000.--Richmond Examiner, July 29.
