Scammon's infantry brigade to join them at Lewisburg, the united cavalry command then to proceed to Dublin Station and destroy the New River bridge. The first intimation of this formidable movement was received by Jackson, who concentrated at Mill Point and informed Echols, who prepared to move to his relief from Lewisburg. Jackson made a stand at Mill Point, Lurty's battery engaging the enemy, but was soon compelled to fall back to Droop mountain, about half way between Lewisburg and HuntersMill Point, Lurty's battery engaging the enemy, but was soon compelled to fall back to Droop mountain, about half way between Lewisburg and Huntersville, on the west side of the Greenbrier river, where he took a strong position. Colonel Thompson had gallantly disputed the enemy's advance step by step, and, aided by Lurty's shells, reached the Droop mountain position in safety, giving Jackson about 750 men. Jackson was also reinforced that night and on the morning of the 6th by the Fourteenth Virginia cavalry, the Twenty-second regiment, Derrick's battalion, and Jackson's and Chapman's batteries, which were under the brigade command of

rapid march on Huntersville, he cannot fall back toward the east, and is compelled to collect his force and bring it back to the south by the Lewisburg road. The brigade that fought at Rocky Springs under Potter, and whose command General Echols has resumed, is in this town: he orders it to meet Averell with a part of Jenkins' force, while Jackson, who has remained with his brigade near Huntersville, rapidly falls back to meet him. On the 6th of November, after having closely pressed, at Mill Point, Jackson's rear-guard, whose retreat he endeavors to cut off, the Unionist general finds four miles south of Hillsboroa all the Confederate forces, stationed, as at Rocky Springs, in a well-selected position on the Lewisburg road. It is called Droop Mountain, which, while detached from the Greenbrier chain, runs east to the bank of Greenbrier River, closely shutting the valley on the left bank. The road which follows that bank ascends, in a zigzag way, the northern declivity of Droop Mo
Incendiaries in Pocahontas. --On the 25th of January, the stables of Mr. M. B. Gillian, of Mill Point, Pocahontas county, were consumed. Five very valuable horses, a considerable quantity of rye, oats, and other articles, were burnt. His loss is supposed to be about $1,800. There is no doubt but that it was the work of an incendiary.--Staunton Spectator.
