Yankee engines

--There are now at the York River Railroad depot two very fine Yankee railroad engines, the Exeter and Spark, which with some slight repairs, can be made available in a more creditable business than hauling supplies to McClellan's played out ‘"Army of the Potomac."’ When Gen. Stuart's cavalry made its detour in rear of McClellan's army, he found the above engines on the road above the White House, abandoned by their possessors, and not injured. For fear they would carry them off, his men disabled them. Afterwards, the Yankees burned off the wood work and threw, the connecting rods in the river. Save these injuries, the machines are as good as ever.
