The quiet but effective system inaugurated by Halleck, and carried into operation by McClellan and Pope, with the assistance of the fames river fleet, may well allay all fears of any disasters in Virginia, and will soon Yankee Accounts of the skirmishes on the South side. A dispatch from the headquarters of McClellan, dated the 4th inst., says: Yesterday a reconnaissance was made from that point back inta cavalry, with four companies of the First Michigan infantry. Captains Castor and Bowen, of Gen. McClellan's staff, accompanied them. At Cox's Mills, five miles from the river, they encountered ver since they began to receive fresh vegetables, which were ordered to be issued to them by Gen. McClellan. Outrageous proceedings in Accomac — brutal murder of citizens by Yankee soldiers.
