Interesting account of the Recent operations of Gen. Lee's army.[Special Correspondence of the Dispatch.] Army of Northern Virginia. October 24, 1863. I purpose writing a more elaborate account of the movements of the Army of Northern Virgi camp, on the Rapidan, and moved in the direction of Madison C. H. One brigade, commanded by Col. J. R. Chambliss, of Gen. Fitz Lee's division, was ordered by Gen. Stuart to proceed promptly from the vicinage of Raccoon Ford and cross the river at P fields of Brandy. There the enemy belted, and evinced a stubborn determination to hold the ground. In the meantime Gen. Fitz Lee, who is always a whale in a fight, was not idle. He had been left with his command near Raccoon Ford to check any adspital stores, together with three large field desks containing all the official papers at Gen. Custer's headquarters Gen. Fitz Lee participated in this battle, and deserves much praise for his gallantry. An incident that I must not fail to chr
this morning. This explodes the stories in circulation that he had been relieved. It is understood that the President on Monday last ordered Gen. Meade to attack Lee wherever he could find him, as he believed that, with a proper disposition of his forces, it would result in the perfect rout of Lee's army. If Meade gained a victLee's army. If Meade gained a victory, he was to have all the glory; and if he failed, the President was willing to assume the responsibility of it. Gen. Meade, while here, conferred with the President. The headquarters of General Meade is at Warrenton, and the army is thereabouts, in excellent condition. It will be some time before the forces under General ago to operate against Burnside, who has alarmed the rebels to the highest pitch. Their place of destination is Lynchburg, which is the grand depot of supplies for Lee's army. Ewell was in command of the detachment, which was composed of nothing but infantry. The execution of Dr. D. M. Wright, of Norfolk, for killing United
imself and his country for gold. Dr. Johnson, we believe it was, who said the Devil was the first rebel. He might have added that Judas Iscariot was the first Yankee. But there is something horribly unnatural in a Virginia-born man turning against his country for gold. At the same time that Thomas advances against Bragg, we are told by the Yankee papers, there is to be a general advance everywhere. Grant or somebody else is to advance against Johnston, and Meade is to advance against Lee. Never, according to their veracious organs, was the prospect of crushing the rebellion so bright. We are to be pressed up into a small space, and annihilated before the mud comes on — that is before the first of December. We should probably feel some degree of alarm at these terrible threats had we not heard them two months ago, just before Rosecrans advanced upon Atlanta and stopped at Chattanooga, and Meade advanced upon Richmond to fall back on Washington. Indeed, we do not think the tr
From Northern Virginia. The latest advices from Northern Virginia represent matters as unchanged with the army of Gen. Lee. A portion of our forces are reported to be busily engaged in removing the iron from the Orange and Alexandria Railroad. Occasionally they are interrupted by the enemy, when a skirmish occurs, resulting in nothing decisive on either side.--On Sunday last we understand there was a considerable cavalry fight north of the Rappahannock river between Gen. Stuart and a portion of the enemy's cavalry. Of the result of the fight we could learn nothing last night.
