--So far as we could gather from the various sources of information, everything was quiet with the army of Gen. Lee
Some of the fruits of his captures in his late chase after Meade
arrived here yesterday in the way of prisoners, over nine hundred of whom came down on the Central
road during the day.
From the lower Valley we are informed that Gen. Imboden
made a descent upon the Yankees
, eight miles southwest of Harper's Ferry
, on Sunday last, in which he captured over four hundred prisoners, and succeeded in getting them off safely, although pursued by a superior force from Harper's Ferry
His loss is said to have been about thirty in killed and wounded.
We have also a report that Capt. Blackford
, of Major Gilmer
's battalion, was surprised in the neighborhood of Martinsburg
, and himself and the greater part of his men made prisoners.
B. and his company, it is stated, were reconnoitering near Martinsburg
, and some Union men in the neighborhood informed the Yankees
of their whereabouts, when they were surrounded by a vastly superior force of the enemy and compelled to surrender.
