received at headquarters that the enemy was crossing in force at Germanna and Banks's ford, when infantry were at once sent up to the vicinity of Tabernacle Church to co-operate with our cavalry in that neighborhood. On Friday, at an early hour in the morning, it became apparent that the main force of the enemy had crossed at the above fords, and that his principal demonstrations were to be made from that quarter. Consequently all of our troops, with the exception of Early's division and Barksdale's brigade, left the lines in front of Fredericksburg and marched towards Tabernacle Church.

The Yankees thought their getting Marye's Hill was a trick, and said so in town. They were much frightened, and that officers had hard work to get their men up to the work. They boast of driving Barksdale's men back, though it took ten to one to do it.
