ed, our loss is not large in either killed or wounded. Crook's column and Averill's command met with decided success. In one action which we had the enemy attempted a trick by trying to flank our left. In the end we tricked him, as we turned his left, and thereby brought about his defeat handsomely. Tachurn's brigade of infantry suffered the heaviest in killed and wounded. Two special messengers previously sent to the rear with dispatches for the Herald, were captured by Gilmer's and some of Mosby's men, who not only took their dispatches from them, but held them as prisoners.

eplied that he was not and gave him his name and rank. Gen Franklin was in citizens' dress, but the rebel also put the question to him, and frankly answered that such was his name and rank.--There was no doubt in his mind, from the manner of the interrogator, that he had been pointed out by some of the passengers. The rebel said: "General, I am happy to see you." The General replied: "I cannot say that I am pleased to see you, under the circumstances." About ten minutes afterwards Gilmer came into the car, and addressing himself to Maj. Gen. Franklin, said--"General, you will consider yourself my prisoner." He was then put in a carriage, and with other prisoners, driven through the country, stopping awhile at Towsontown, and then across to the Reisterstown road, where they arrived about 1 o'clock on Tuesday morning, and immediately bivouacked for the night. The General was put in custody of Capt Owens and two guards, who were charged with his safe keeping. Expressing hi
