The facts from Port Royal
seem to be that on Thursday about a hundred Yankees creamed over and destroyed the solue with which some of our soldiers had been fishing and the boats, and burned five wagons carried off the mules, robbed several houses, and returned.
We had only a few cavalrymen in the neighborhood.
It is reported that a large force of Yankee infantry have marched through King George county
, and their artillery and cavalry are seen in large numbers opposites.
Fort Moyal Many citizens of King George county
have been arrested, and sent to the prison ship at Aquia Creek
Among others I have the names of Col. E. T. Tayloe
, W. Roy Mason
, Charles Mason
, Dr. Stuart
, Dr. Hone
, and others.
Messrs. Charles Jait
and Lawrence Washington
, were arrested previously.
No news here.

We are quiet but expectant, hopeful and confident.
My private opinion still is the Yankees
