s sent on board the Yankee to prevent him from notifying the rebels of our arrival, with an assurance to his wife that he would be sent on shore as soon as we had finished the business on hand. Leaving this house, we proceeded through innumerable quagmires, piloted by a contraband, to another house about a mile off, where we found a woman; but no rebel soldiers. It now began to snow pretty hard, and through the storm, after sticking in the mud several times, we arrived at the farm of Mr. Thomas Chapman, who is in the rebel army, and whose father has a comfortable farm a little above Indian Head, Maryland. This was the real object of the expedition. We surrounded the house as we had done the others, and made an examination of the interior; but no obnoxious person or thing was found in it, except a pamphlet with a Richmond imprint, "Skirmish Drill for mounted troops, by authority of John B. Floyd," the rebel Secretary of War. It was now daybreak, when Captain Eastman detailed th
Averill's Raid. Information received yesterday leaves no doubt of the fact that the enemy under Averill are still in the neighborhood of Salem, in which point they retired yesterday morning, after making a feint of falling back towards Sweet Springs. It is believed that several streams in the route of their retreat have been so much swollen by the recent rains as to be past fording. If such be the case, proper vigilance on the part of our authorities may succeed in bagging the greater portion of them. When they first entered Salem, on Wednesday, they captured William Oakey, the telegraph operator, and killed a Mr. Chapman, proprietor of one of the hotels in the place. On Wednesday night, after burning the depot and commissary buildings, as well as the Court-House, they retired to Mason's Cove, where they encamped for the night.--It is also reported that they destroyed the extensive tannery in the town.
g, Dec. 18. --We have various reports from Salem. The couriers who arrived at Bannock's report the enemy retiring, but persons who left Salem this morning state that there was no enemy there. The damage done to the railroad during their visit was not considerable. The track was torn up about one hundred yards about the depot, and the bridge over Roanoke river and Mason's creek, two miles this side of town, and another small bridge, were destroyed, and a few telegraph poles cut. Pitzer's large flour mill, McClanahan's store, and three small buildings were burned; also, seventy-five Government wagons.--Thomas Chapman, a citizen, was killed, and the prisoners in the jail liberated, among whom were a few Yankees. A number of citizens and some furloughed and wounded soldiers were taken prisoners, but the citizens have returned. A number of negroes were carried off. It is said the enemy's forces did not exceed 1,500. Reports of their returning to Salem are conflicting.

r the bridge across Roanoke river, six miles vest of the town. About 300 yards of the track was torn up, and the turntable at the depot destroyed. It is believed the whole damage to the road can be repaired in five or six days. The telegraph wires were cut, but not taken off. The principal loss of the citizens was in horses, of which they carried off or shot all that fell into their hands. About fifteen negroes were also carried off, six of whom were worthless free negroes. Mr. Thomas Chapman, who has already been reported killed, was out a short distance from the town watching the movements of the enemy, who came upon him and ordered him to surrender, which he refused to do. They then fired upon him, killing him instantly. They buried him near where he fell. The only persons not released by them after being captured were two furloughed soldiers of the 2nd Va. cavalry, and Mr. Oakey, telegraph operator. The exact loss sustained by the Government is not known. Pitzer'
