company G, Fourth Iowa, who was severely wounded in the thigh by the accidental discharge of a Starr revolver. After our party recrossed the river, a dozen rebels were seen on the opposite side, concealed in the brush. From the efforts made by the secesh to get at the mouth of the cave, it was supposed they had arms concealed therein. It was learned that one shipment of saltpetre had been made this spring. The works happened to be poorly guarded, it being subsequently ascertained that Col. Colman was at Yellville, twelve miles distant, with three hundred men, and had a company on the march for the protection of the saltpetre. Capt. Drummond and party then returned to the main command at Talbott's Barrens, the point where Col. McCrellis had moved in order to support the former if necessary. On the same day that Capt. Drummond returned (nineteenth) Lieut. Wm. M. Heacock, of company F, Fourth Iowa cavalry, was despatched with forty mounted men to take possession of Talbott's Fe

y four foot wide and fifteen foot between joynts. How the town expected the work to be done without an appropriation of money does not appear, but none was at that time made. The Comitte must have had a serious problem to solve during the two years that ensued. During that time the town generously offered to Mr. Simon Bradstreet the sum of forty pounds in money for annuity, with his housing and firewood, as an encouragement to settle in Medford, and chose a committee to reseat with Mr. Colman, who had for a time preached here. Possibly the call to Mr. Bradstreet may have expedited matters, and on September 13, 1695, another town meeting was held, when sixteen and one-half pounds were subscribed by eighteen persons. It is improbable that the subscription list was then closed; but the town at the same time made provision that what moneys shall be wanting beyond what is subscribed shall be paid in the way of Rate. Also the rate of 12d. per head and 1d. in the pound for estates
Negro Spies. --A letter from an intelligent officer of the army says there are two sides to the negro spy question, and that we have suffered more than we have gained from Many of the most intelligent of them have been in the habit of visiting both armies, and have carried continuous information to the rebels which has been of great to injury to us. Some of them have been for a long time what successfully used by the rebel Generals on sales and from this source they have derived which of their valuable information, which it has been supposed was communicated by traitor at Washington and elsewhere.--Northern papers. Here is another paragraph from the same persons. The negroes at Newburg whom Dr. Colman was teaching, are fire upon Government some 31 cents per day, each to provide which poor white man in the North new port in his coffee, and sugar, and is to pay, and more when the

unted for. As I expected, the Harper's Ferry forces, Infantry, artillery, and cavalr, appeared at Charlestown in less than two hours after I fired the first gun. Having promptly sent off the prisoners and property, I was prepared for them. I retired from the town and fell back slowly towards Berryville, fighting the enemy all the way, from 10 o'clock till near sunset. My loss, as far as ascertained, is very small--five killed, three or four mortally, and 15 or 20 wounded, more or less. Capt. Colman will lose an army and Captain Cumnel was badly shot in the hip. I think a few, 10 or 15 broken down men, who straggled behind, were captured. We killed and wounded dreadfully several of the enemy in the Court-House, including the Adjutant of the 9th Md.; and in the fight along the road the enemy's loss was considerable, as we ambuscaded them several times with good effect. I marched nearly all night, and reached the river here at daybreak. It was quite full, but I have effected a safe

About five o'clock in the evening the roar of Jackson's guns announced that the flank movement was accomplished, and that Stonewall was again thundering in the enemy's rear. Jackson fell upon the enemy a rear, going is upon them with their backs turned to his flanking Colman. The story of the "Flying Dutchman" and the defeat of Hooker is soon told. In an hour we had driven the enemy at all points and forced them back fully two and a half miles, carrying two of their earthworks of a most formidable character. Night closed with our men masters of the field, and prepared on the coming morning to turn the flight of the preceding evening into a rout. After night fall Jackson rode out in front of his (our) lines in order to make a reconnaissance, with the view of
