der. Alexander was wounded here.] Crossed the Potomac 5th September, near Leesburg. [Captain Poague and other battery commanders, put under arrest for allowing men to ride across on the carriages.] On 6th September, encamped near Frederick City, Md. [where Henry Font joined the company], and remained till about the 10th; then passing through Boonsboro, and Williamsport, crossed the Baltimore and Ohio railroad at North Mountain depot, about seven miles west of Martinsburg; thence through Hedgesville to Martinsburg. As they were moving from Martinsburg en route to Harper's Ferry, Sergeant Moore's detachment and gun, under Lieutenant McCorkle, and one hundred and fifty men of the Tenth Virginia infantry, were ordered back to North Mountain depot to drive out some of the enemy's troops who had closed in on our rear and captured a few of our soldiers. After this gun returned to Martinsburg, it was ordered to remain there for further orders. The remainder of the battery reached Harper'

he rocks and gravel, barefoot, Breckinridge's corps, consisting of his own and Wharton's small divisions, passed by us and crossed the Potomac. General Breckinridge was formerly vice-president of the United States, and is a magnificent looking man, weighing over 200 pounds. He wears a heavy moustache but no beard, and his large piercing blue eyes are really superb. Rodes' and Ramseur's divisions also crossed to the Virginia side, wading the river again. We marched to the vicinity of Hedgesville and camped for the night. This, August 14th, rude breastworks of rails were thrown up, but the enemy kept aloof Although we have thrown up scores of earthworks we have never been called upon to fight behind them. August 17. We left our post for Winchester, and, on our route, saw where several large barns, loaded with wheat, corn and hay, had been burnt by order of General Sheridan. One large flouring mill of great necessity to the locality, had been destroyed. I suppose Sheridan p

arged with this expedition. On the evening of the 20th, Early's division marches by a very circuitous route to cut off the retreat of Kelley, who has halted at Hedgesville. On the 21st Ewell crosses North Mountain at Mill Gap, follows the course of Back Creek, and invests Hedgesville on the west and north, whilst Ewell is coming Hedgesville on the west and north, whilst Ewell is coming from Martinsburg with his two other divisions in order to attack the village in front. The Southern general believes that he has completely surrounded Kelley, but the latter is too well experienced in mountain-warfare to allow himself to be surprised in that manner: he has left a few hours before, and Ewell's march has been of no isions, has returned to the village of Darksville, which he should have marched from in the morning, but he has left behind Early, who will not be able to leave Hedgesville until the following day: to give the latter time to join him Ewell will be obliged to stop at Winchester; finally, Benning's brigade, being sure that the Federa

exciting character reached here from Green river. They are to the effect that the enemy are crossing over in large force at the month of Little Barren, and that they are also crossing in force at several points below. The Kentucky Cavalry, Col. B. Helm, are closely watching their movements. This may not be correct, though the report is just received and from a source which is entitled to consideration. Arrest of Tories. Peter French and Harley Miller, who live near Hedgesville, in Berkeley county, (says the Martinsburg Republican,) were arrested on Tuesday last by a portion of Captain Myers's company, and brought to this place and confined. They are charged with giving information to the enemy at Bath, on Friday, the 3d, of the approach of the Confederate forces upon that place. Except for this notification to the Yankees, it is believed nearly all, if not the entire force of 1,500 would have been captured at that place.--French and Miller had observed the movements of
er 14, 1862. Col. R. H. Chilton, A. A. Gen'l Army Northern Va: Colonel: I have the honor to report that on the 9th Inst., in compliance with instructions from the Commanding General Army Northern Virginia. I proceeded on an expedition into Pennsylvania with a cavalry force of 1,800 and four pieces of horse artillery, under command of Brigadier- General Hampton and Cols. W. H. F. Lee and Jones. This force rendezvoused at Darkavills at 12 M., and marched thence to the vicinity of Hedgesville, where it comped for the night. At daylight next morning October. 10th I crossed the Potomac at McCoy's, (between Williamsport and Hancock) with some little opposition, capturing two or three horses of enemy's pickets. We were told here by citizens the that a large force had camped the night before at Clear Spring, and were supposed to be en route to Cumberland. We proceeded northward until we reached the turnpike leading from Hagerstown to Hancock, (known as the National road.) Here w
. Banks, Maj.-Gen., [Approved,] Frank Gardner, Maj.-Gen. The Armies of Gens. Meade and Lee--the coming campaign in Virginia. A dispatch, dated the 21st at Hagerstown, Md., reports General Lee to be checked by the Federal at Banker Hill, they having gotten in his rear. General Averill is reported to be "feeling" Gen. Lee's westerly line of retreat. Gens. Ewell and Hood are reported to be within 13 miles of Williamsport, Md. The Confederate pickets have a front extending from Hedgesville, seven miles from Martinsburg, to the Shenandoah river, eight miles from Harper's Ferry. The New York Times has an editorial on the "New Campaign in Virginia" The following is an extract from it: The information which we, as yet, have both as regards Lee's position and line of retreat, and Meade's line of advance, is too scanty to enable one to forecast the nature of the coming campaign. The character of the great chess board is so well understood, however, that a few moves must
From the army.[special correspondence of the Dispatch,] Ewell's Corps, July 20. The late march of this corps, particularly of Early's division, from the Lower Valley over the mountains, was one of the severest of the war. Before leaving Winchester that division especially had been nearly broken down by the fruitless forced march from Bunker Hill in pursuit of the force of Yankees in the vicinity of Hedgesville. Gen. Early having been ordered to flank them and get in their rear, for this purpose had to cross the mountain near Martins burg and make a long detour to the left, which threw him a hard day's march behind the remainder of the corps and not a little imperiled his division, as the Yankees were endeavoring to occupy and hold the mountain passes to cut off the junction of the corps with the main body. It was not the intention of Gen'ls Rodes and Johnston to cross at Manassas or Chester's Gaps, but to cross the river at Front Royal, proceed up Luray Valley and cross th
