derick I crossed the Monocacy, continued the march through the night, via Liberty, New-Market, Monrovia, on the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, where we cut the telegraph-wires and obstructed the railroad. We reached at daylight Hyattstown, on McClellan's line of wagon communication with Washington, but we found only a few wagons to capture, and we pushed on to Barnsville, which we found just vacated by a company of the enemy's cavalry. We had here corroborated what we had heard before, that Stoneman had between four and five thousand troops about Poolesville and guarding the river fords. I started directly for Poolesville, but instead of marching upon that point avoided it by a march through the woods, leaving it two or three miles to my left, and getting into the road from Poolesville to the mouth of the Monocacy. Guarding well my flanks and rear, I pushed boldly forward, meeting the head of the enemy's column going toward Poolesville. I ordered the charge, which was responded to

The General is of the impression that had White's Ford been occupied by any force of ours previous to the occupatio

To annihilate the rebel army, it was of the utmost importance that Stoneman should do his part of the work. Wanting that information, he waited. Candid minds will duly consider the circumsta Had he a right to imperil the army? Tuesday, and still no certain news from Stoneman. Averill, who had dashed toward Gordonsville, was in with intelligence of the the Rappahannock. Had Hooker known on Monday what the Richmond papers had of Stoneman's operations, not thus would the affairs have ended. It was not so to be. He eem that he ought to have moved on, notwithstanding he had no information from Stoneman; but that would also have been a departure from his plan, thought over and oveksburgh, turned our right wing and seized the railway at Hamilton's Crossing.
