ve Leesburg, in Loudoun County, on the morning of the 14th, bringing off the prisoners captured at Monocacy, and our captured beef cattle and horses, and everything else, in safety. General Wright, with about 15,000 men of the Sixth and Nineteenth corps, followed by several thousand more, under Ricketts and Kenly, pursued General Early, who, however, after resting on the 14th and 15th at Lees-burg, reached the Shenandoah Valley safely through Snicker's Gap, losing some loaded wagons at Purcellville to the cavalry of Hunter's field forces. These latter had returned from the Kanawha Valley to Harper's Ferry, and moved out under Crook against the flank of Early's column. Thoburn's division of Crook's command, crossing at Snicker's Gap, was repulsed by Early with a loss of 422 on the 18th of July. On the 20th Averell, with a mixed infantry and cavalry force, 2350 strong, attacked and defeated Ramseur's division near Winchester, inflicting a loss of about 400, and suffering a loss of

We are in a beautiful country, the valley of the Catoctin Creek, between Leesburg and Winchester. We do not hear much about the enemy.

For instance, we are not far from Waterford now, and we expect to be near Hamilton to-night. camp near Purcellville, Va., November 3, 1862. We yesterday moved to this place, which for a time placed us in the advance, but to-day Burnside has gone ahead of us, and I presume to-morrow we shall push on again. It appears the enemy are still either in the Valley of the Shenandoah or are manoeuvring to make us believe so. To-day their cavalry in large force, with artillery, have been disputing the advance of our cavalry, and I understand this afternoon they displayed infantry. If this be the case, they eit

On the 16th, the army again marched, by way of Leesburg and Purcellville, through Snicker's gap of the Blue ridge, with Jackson's cavalry in advance; and Gordon's and Wharton's divisions crossed the Shenandoah and encamped on its western side, between Snicker's ferry and Berryville, while the other divisions encampowed after the trains to Ashby's gap, and Johnson marched on roads to protect the right flank from the enemy at Hillsboro, who had come in from Harper's Ferry, but he failed in doing this and an attack was made on the train, in passing through Purcellville, and some damage done; but the attack was soon repulsed, and a piece of artillery captured from the attacking party. McCausland crossed the river and went to the vicinity of Millwood. On the 17th of July, the entire army got into camps on

ps are in Virginia: the Second and the Third near Harper's Ferry; the First and the Fifth, with Meade, at Lovettsville, opposite Berlin. Buford, who has crossed the river at this last place, has pushed forward east of the Blue Ridge as far as Purcellville. On the following day all the army has left Maryland. The three corps which have crossed at Harper's Ferry also cross the Shenandoah, and, following the base of Loudoun Mountain, have ranged themselves en échelon on the eastern slope of thatillsboroa to Woodgrove, at the foot of Snicker's Gap, which is occupied by a cavalry brigade. The remainder of the army is stationed a little more to the east, at the base of the western slope of the Catoctin, between Waterford, Hamilton, and Purcellville. Buford has pushed forward to Rector's Cross-roads, whence he can proceed to Ashby's Gap or occupy, a little farther on, the railroad and Manassas Gap. This movement is performed without Lee being able to detect it. Stuart, after having f
