owever, assured us that they exercise their suffrages entirely untrammelled. As we journeyed on beyond the town we met horsemen at short intervals, isolated or in pairs, Virginia gentlemen of the old school going to Circuit. This is one of the field days of the county, when almost every man within a radius of twenty miles may be found at county headquarters; and from the number of saddled horses picketed along the streets and in vacant lots, one might easily imagine either Kilpatrick's or Stuart's troopers in possession, were it a time of war. Approaching the town later in the day, on our homeward journey, we met several of these same gentry, also wending their way homeward, many of whom maintained a very unstable equilibrium in the saddle.

r, who with an inferior force had chased our army almost up to Washington, utterly destroyed its main artery of supply, captured the larger number of prisoners, destroyed, or caused us to destroy, valuable stores, and then returned to his own side of the Rappahannock essentially unharmed; having decidedly the advantage in the only collision that marked his retreat. American Conflict, Vol. II. The collision referred to in the above extract was a cavalry fight at Buckland's Mills, between Stuart and Kilpatrick. Gen. Meade, it is said, felt not a little ashamed and somewhat nettled at the part he had played in this campaign, and would have ordered an advance at once had not a heavy rain rendered Bull Run impassable without pontoons, which were not then at hand. He then determined to make a rapid movement to the left, and before the Rebel commander could gain knowledge of his intentions, seize Fredericksburg and the heights in its rear, with the design of pushing operations agai
