[246] the Wisconsin men, the 23d, the 11th, and McMullin's men, under fire, is spoken of in the highest terms; while the City Troop and 2d Cavalry behaved with most admirable coolness.

Colonel C. P. Dare found in one of the camps the rebels had just left, the following note unfinished:

camp Stephens, July 2, 1861.
dear sue: I have written two or three letters to you and Ellen, but not being able to get them to the Post-Office, had to tear them up. Our nearest Post-Office is at Martinsburg, about four miles from camp. We have been at this camp nearly two weeks. There are about 3,500 troops here, all Virginia troops, under Colonel Jackson. The troops from other States are at Winchester.

It is fair to presume that about the time the gentleman had proceeded thus far with his epistle, something turned up in the shape of “our fellows” which compelled him to postpone the latter part of it indefinitely.

--N. Y. Tribune, July 8.
