From the army of Northern Virginia.
We have but little news from Gen. Lee
On Friday the enemy crossed the Potomac
, some ten or fifteen thousand strong, over to Martinsburg
On learning of the enemy's advance, Stonewall Jackson
attacked him and drove him back across the river on a ‘"double-quick."’ The Yankees
are represented as not having waited for the second fire from our men. The movement, no doubt, was intended as a rute de guerre
to draw Jackson
over into Maryland
, having, it is presumed, laid a trap for that astute General; but he was not to be caught.
Saturday morning everything along the lines was in statu quo.
