From Jackson.

We have information from Jackson's army up to Saturday, at which time his headquarters were at Port Republic, in Rockingham, and it was thought possible he might retire before the force pressing upon his line, unless indeed, an opportunity for an attack was offered. The enemy was reported to be between Woodstock and Harrisonburg, and near the latter place. The reported victory appears to have arisen from a mere skirmish between the advance of the Yankees and our rear guard, from which the Yankee press seems to have derived considerable consolation. Notwithstanding the overwhelming numbers sent against Jackson, we have no fears for his safety, feeling confident he will extricate himself from all difficulties, and give the Yankee Generals another opportunity for a strategic run across the Potomac.
