Lieutenant Jones had been secretly warned, twenty-four hours before, of the plan for seizing the post that ner in the magazine might be exploded, and the government buildings be set on fire. Word came to Jones, at near ten o'clock at night, that 2,000 Virginians were within twenty minutes march of him. The trains were fired, and the whole public property that was combustible was soon in ashes. Then Jones and his little garrison fled across the Potomac, and reached Hagerstown in the morning, and thence pushed on to Chambersburg and Carlisle Barracks. Jones was highly commended by his government. The Confederate forces immediately took possession of ruined Harper's Ferry as a strategic point.

Dreux was killed, which states that he was "accompanied by a detachment of the Nottoway Cavalry," and in some remarks just preceding the letter, headed "The Skirmish near Newport News," it is said that "the sudden dash of their horses startled the horses of the Howitzers" I beg to say that the Nottoway Cavalry bore no part whatever in the skirmish, being stationed at Yorktown on the day it took place. Your kindness in giving this note an insertion in your paper, so as to correct those misstatements, which are doubtless unintentional, will much oblige, Very respectfully,Your obedient servant,John E Jones,Captain Nottoway Cavalry.
