as supposed, of course, they would make a stand. How different was the result. All last week an impression prevailed along the entire line of the enemy that Jackson would be upon them very soon, and they commenced to fall back, probably to stand at this place. On Saturday, "old Stonewall," having taken a considerable part ofge of Winchester, where they put their cannon in position and fought with effect for some time, when finally they fled through the streets, our men pursuing, with Jackson at their head. The citizens say that the rout was perfect and that the enemy's cavalry fled disgracefully, pursued by numbers smaller than their own. Unlike JackJackson, Banks kept a long way from the flashing of the guns. On both sides, this entire affair was comparatively bloodless. Our loss, in killed and wounded, did not exceed forty. Col. Campbell, of the 48th Virginia, was wounded in the arm. A Louisiana Major was killed We took in prisoners some 2,500 or 3,000, including those taken a

Forrest, left behind to form the rear guard. The Vermont cavalry were ordered to make a reconnaissance to Woodstock to ascertain whether Jackson was in the rear.

No enemy in Highland. --The Lynchburg Republican learns that a party of scouts was sent into Highland county last week and returned to Staunton on Saturday, and reported that no force of the enemy was then in that section, they having all retreated towards Cumberland, in Maryland. At a little place called Harmersburg our scouts came across about two hundred sick and wounded Yankees, whom they made prisoners, together with twenty-three well ones, who had been left to take care of the sick. It is stated further that Milroy, and the great Pathfinder, have left Pendiston county and taken the back track towards Cumberland, not liking the movements of Jackson in the direction of Martinsburg. Old "Stonewall." seems to have seriously interfered with the "family arrangements" of Lincoln.
Wheat's battalion. --This famous body of soldiers, now with Jackson in Maryland, was represented in the battles of Saturday and Sunday by two gallant volunteers, Capt. R. A. Harris and Lieut. Foley, who were here on the sick list. Captain Harris, of company A, Wheat's battalion, rallied some of our brave troops to the charge, dashing fearlessly into the enemy's entrenchments and putting them to flight in quick time. This sort of conducts is in striking contrast to the about- town policy of some others on furlough during the hour of danger. Wheat's battalion was at Manassas, where its Major was dangerously wounded, and performed prodigies of valor on that memorable occasion. Major Wheat, a Virginian, formerly General in the Mexican army, and with Garibaldi in Naples, has, singularly enough, never been promoted, though others of far less military skill and renown have been visited by many honors.
