There is no change reported in the relative positions of our own and the enemy's forces since our last issue.
The enemy still have possession of Harper's Ferry and occasionally their cavalry, in small parties, cross the river at Shepherdstown, and make raids through the country adjacent.
Our latest advices from our army are to Monday evening, at which time everything was in comparative quiet.
