The express safe was opened, and United States money, to the amount of some four thousand dollars, consigned to a Federal payman in Winchester, was extracted, with a number of other valuable articles. The U. S. mail was also secured, containing, amongst other documents, official dispatches from General Pope to Brig. Gen. White, at Winchester. These dispatches have been forwarded to Gen. Jackson.

Stanley, under the particular charge of Lieut. Pope. This piece was served with the greatest accuracy and effect, and by the coolness and skill with which it was handled the great odds against us was almost counterbalanced. By 3½ P. M., the intensity of the cannonading increasing, heavy masseed judgment, courage, and high soldierly qualities in his conduct and arrangements, which I desire specially to commend. Capt. Stanley was in command of two pieces of artillery, including the six pounder so effectively served. Both he and Lieut Pope conducted themselves with skill and courage. Capt.
