Finally the infantry and cavalry succeeded in capturing two guns, which were turned upon the others and drove them back. As they could not be carried off, they were disabled.

Another account. bloody Run, Pa., June 22, 1863. Permit me, sir, if you please, to lay before your readers a true account of the recent battles around Winchester, Va.

Duffie: sir: I have the honor to report that about five o'clock P. M., on the evening of the seventeenth instant, I was sent from Middleburgh, where the regiment was then engaged with the enemy, to carry a despatch to General Kilpatrick at Aldie, accompanied by two men.
