From our army in Maryland
We are without any additional particulars from our forces in Maryland
It was stated by a soldier who came down on the train last night that a large amount of flour and other produce was captured by our troops on the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal
, on Saturday last.
The same authority also represents that some twelve hundred Yankee troops were captured at Poolesville, in Montgomery county, Md.
, the same day.
A gentleman from the lower part of the Valley
who arrived in this city yesterday afternoon, states that the Yankees
still occupied Harper's Ferry
up to Monday last.
On that day a portion of their cavalry scouted as far up as the neighborhood of Berryville, in Clarke county
He thinks the force at Harper's Ferry
amounts to some six or seven thousand composed of the forces formerly at Winchester
, and Charlestown
In view of the fact that our forces reached Frederick
on Sunday, this announcement seems a little singular; but it may be that this force, after massing at Harper's Ferry
from other points in the Valley
, found their retreat cut off, and were in doubt what course to pursue, or what route to take to effect an escape.
Before the arrival of the train from Gordonsville
yesterday evening, an extravagant rumor prevailed to the effect that Fort McHenry
, below Baltimore
, and fallen into the hands of the Confederates
It is needless to state that there was no foundation for this rumor.
