rson, (or both, as the case may be,) did not recross the Potomac; but followed Johnston's advanced force, under Gen. Jackson, until it effected a junction with the maht enough to be credited, we believe,) at once assailed the entire force under Johnston and were repulsed with severe loss. Thrice did they try to drive him from his position with the like defeat, and the last time Johnston pursued them into Martinsburg, where, having outflanked them he held them at last accounts. The statement lader, or Patterson, whichever he may have been, is nearer reinforcements than Johnston. We see that Stone, with 3,500 men was looked for in the neighborhood of Hartpe Federalists at Martinsburg. A little delay might bring aid to them. But Gen. Johnston is too great a strategist to allow any time to clapse before availing himseg and a considerable force of them would likely arrive in good time to join Gen. Johnston. The reader will be amused with one of the Washington dispatches, publ
on Thursday evening, reliable intelligence was received from Martinsburg to the effect that Gen. Johnston's command had engaged the forces of the United States, estimated at 20,000, at a place called Darkville, three miles this side of Martinsburg — that General Johnston had repulsed them three times with great loss on their side, although their number largely exceeded his. General Patterson is supposed to have been in command of the Federal troops. General Johnston succeeded in driving them back to Martinsburg — outflanking them and getting between them and the river, intercepted their retsburg, the Federal army is thus held in a trap, and between the upper and neither millstones of Johnston and Beauregard, who will doubtless grind them to powder, unless the Federal commander has judge the Potomac into Maryland, was untrue. An order had been received at Martinsburg, from Gen. Johnston, to remove the women and children. It was not known by our informant what was the exten
enemy estimated at the minimum of 67 killed, 85 wounded, and 53 prisoners; when the firing ceased, and Colonel Jackson fell back slowly to a stronger position nearer Martinsburg, with a loss on his side of three killed and five wounded. Gen. Johnston, being notified, advanced from Winchester with his forces, and reliable reports received yesterday say, that in conjunction with Col. Jackson's force, he three several times repulsed the attacks of Gen. Patterson's entire army of about 20,000in conjunction with Col. Jackson's force, he three several times repulsed the attacks of Gen. Patterson's entire army of about 20,000 men, and drove him into Martinsburg. Gen. Johnston has since succeeded in throwing his army between Gen. Patterson and the Potomac, thus cutting off retreat, while reinforcements are constantly arriving from Beauregard's camp at Manassas in sufficient numbers to assure the complete discomfiture, if not capture, of the entire Hessian force, which may God grant.
Firing at Mathias' Point. Passengers who left Fredericksburg Friday morning state that a report prevailed there on yesterday that heavy firing had been heard in the neighborhood of Mathias' Point. It is to be hoped that the "glorious Fourth" was celebrated in a becoming manner by giving the Yankees as sound a thrashing as Johnston inflicted upon them about the same time near Martinsburg.
Arrival of the California Express. Fort Kearney, July 3. --The California Pony Express, with San Francisco dates to the 22d ult., has arrived. The steamer Sonora sailed on the 20th with $1,240,000 in specie for New York. The Republican State ticket has been completed. Most of the candidates are natives of New York. Gen. Johnston is reported to have resigned his commission, and was about starting overland for Texas, with fifty Californians, to aid the Confederates.
