ver, and presented herself about ten o'clock in the forenoon. The result of the interview with her will appear in the following reply to the foregoing letter, which was promptly forwarded to the general's headquarters: I have the honor to report, for the information of Major General Reynolds, commanding the corps, that Mrs. —, named in your communication of this date, has called at these headquarters, and has given me the following information: I live about four miles and a half from Martinsburg, on the road to Shepherdstown, in the lines of the rebel army. The rebel infantry all left that neighborhood on Thursday night of this week. I think the whole rebel army was there. When they left they moved toward Winchester. Stuart's cavalry have been left. The number I do not know. They have torn up the railroad and everything belonging to the road at Martinsburg, and down toward Kearneyville. They took up the cross-ties and burnt them, putting the rails on the fire. They are tr

be the best position I could recommend. . . . After reconnoissance, and some skirmishing with the enemy's advance [Sept. 11th], demonstrating that his force was too large to be opposed with success, especially as there were no defenses at Martinsburg, the post, in accordance with General Wool's views, was evacuated, and on the 12th Harper's Ferry was reached. Upon my reporting to Colonel Miles, the officer in command, he showed me the following dispatch: Washington, D. C., Sept. 7thonfidence in you, and is ready to give you full credit for the defense it expects you to make. H. W. Halleck, General-in-Chief. In view of the foregoing dispatch, and of the fact that I had been ordered from Harper's Ferry to the command at Martinsburg a few days before by General Wool, it was manifest that the authorities intended to retain Colonel Miles in command — very properly so, as he was an officer of forty years experience. The defenses of Harper's Ferry, if worthy of the name, c

n to Hagerstown, leaving D. H. Hill alone at South Mountain. The movement against Harper's Ferry began on the 10th. Jackson made a wide, sweeping march around the Ferry, passing the Potomac at Williams-port, and moving from there on toward Martinsburg, and turning thence upon Harper's Ferry to make his attack by Bolivar Heights. McLaws made a hurried march to reach Maryland Heights before Jackson could get in position, and succeeded in doing so. With Maryland Heights in our possession the g Middletown, with such portions as he may select, take the route toward Sharpsburg, cross the Potomac at the most convenient point, and by Friday night take possession of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, capture such of the enemy as may be at Martinsburg, and intercept such as may attempt to escape from Harper's Ferry. General Longstreet's command will pursue the same road as far as Boonsboro‘, where it will halt with the reserve, supply, and baggage trains of the army. General McLaws,

orning, and a strong rear guard left at twelve M., or one P. M. They marched down the Georgetown pike. I last heard of them at Hyattsvtlle, on that pike. It was said that they were making for Edwards' and Nolan's ferries. A Union cavalry force from Hunter's command entered Frederick as the rebels left it. The rebels' rear guard left precipitately, being under the impression that Hunter's main force was approaching. When I left Frederick at twelve M. yesterday, Hunter was said to be at Martinsburg, with a part of his force. The railroad is intact this side of Monocacy.

my at Manassas, an old field, already having its twice-told told tale, with his own headquarters at Dumfries, on the Potomac. Mr. Lincoln humorously wired Hooker: If the head of Lee's army is at Martinsburg, and the tail of it on the plank road between Fredericksburg and Chancellorsville, the animal must be very slim somewhere. Could you not break him? As Lee went north, Hooker moved on a parallel line between Lee and Washington. Ewell had gone west of the Blue Ridge, by Winchester, Martinsburg and Williamsport, in Maryland; Longstreet moved on the east side of the ridge with Stuart on his front and left flank; and Hill passed behind Longstreet into the Valley, and northward following Ewell, and then was followed by Longstreet's corps. General Lee instructed General Stuart to keep on General Longstreet's right, or at his discretion to move on the rear of Hooker to and across the Potomac, and as soon as possible come in touch with the right of Ewell's advance.

From the army of Northern Virginia. We have but little news from Gen. Lee's army. On Friday the enemy crossed the Potomac at Williamsport, some ten or fifteen thousand strong, over to Martinsburg. On learning of the enemy's advance, Stonewall Jackson attacked him and drove him back across the river on a "double-quick." The Yankees are represented as not having waited for the second fire from our men. The movement, no doubt, was intended as a rute de guerre to draw Jackson over into Maryland, having, it is presumed, laid a trap for that astute General; but he was not to be caught. Saturday morning everything along the lines was in statu quo.
