On the left of this woods, near the Pughtown road, was a cornfield on Mr. Brinly's land, facing towards the enemy's positio, and appeared as if it might be an enclosed work. It was on the south of the Pughtown road, and there was a line of works running across that road from the flank ofso as to protect the pieces on the left from an attack in the direction of the Pughtown road. The rest of Hoke's brigade, except the 54th North Carolina Regiment, stnel Godwin, was sent for, to occupy a portion of the works on the north of the Pughtown road, Colonel Avery being left with two regiments, to protect the artillery wh

irection. This morning one of the pickets came in and reported the enemy in sight, and a citizen immediately afterward reported a force, numbering from forty to sixty, concealed in the mountains, some two miles from Hedgesville — their intention being to remain there during the day, and burn Back Creek bridge, on the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, to-night. Colonel Pierce at once despatched a detachment of forty men of the Twelfth Pennsylvania cavalry, under Captain George W. Henrie, on the Pughtown road, and another of fifty, of the First New York, under Captain Richard Pendegrass, on the Hedgesville road; the one to flank them on the right, the other on the left. This they did, forming a junction, and very cunningly arranging their lines so as to form two sides of a triangle; while, in the mean time, a company of the One Hundred and Sixteenth Ohio infantry were sent out from North Mountain Station, with orders to attack the enemy directly in front and drive them into the trap so ing
. Early on Sunday morning I ordered Captain Morgan, of the Twelfth Pennsylvania cavalry, with a detachment of two companies of that regiment, to proceed out the Pughtown road as far as Pughtown, if practicable, thence across to the Romney road, and by that road back to the forts. I instructed him to carefully observe the disposiPughtown, if practicable, thence across to the Romney road, and by that road back to the forts. I instructed him to carefully observe the disposition and forces of the enemy, if any, in that direction. That officer returned with his command to the forts about two o'clock P. M., and reported that he had made the round indicated without meeting or detecting any traces of an enemy in that direction. Immediately west of and parallel with the ridge on which the main fortificaould not be successfully defended by the limited means at my command against such an army as surrounded me. Six principal roads, known in the army as the Romney, Pughtown, Martinsburgh, Berryville, Front Royal, and Strasburgh roads, lead into the town. The names of these roads indicate their courses.

It should be on the Pughtown road, which is on the northwest of Winchester, while the Newtown road (the Valley pike) is on the south of the town. Thopying or printing the report, and I have made the correction to conform to the facts of the case by merely substituting Pughtown for Newtown. With this correction, the general accuracy of the report as now given will be recognized by all who partical errors in the printed copy (notably the one to which General Early calls attention, the printing of Newton instead of Pughtown), and supplies several paragraphs which the printed copy omits. These omissions refer to the conduct of our officers an following morning General Ewell ordered General Early to carry an entrenched position northwest of Winchester, near the Pughtown road, which the latter officer, upon examining the ground, discovered would command the principal fortifications.

them. Having reconnoitered with General Early from Bower's Hill, I coincided with his views as to the best point of attack, and directed him to move his main force to the left and carry by assault a small open work on a commanding hill near the Pughtown road, which overlooked the main fort. About 11 A. M., finding there was no danger of a sortie, and seeing the enemy fortifying a hill north of the main fort, I directed General Johnson to move to the east of the town and interfere with their wo, and pushed their skirmishers into Winchester — who were recalled for fear of drawing the enemy's fire on the town. By 4 P. M. General Early had attained, undiscovered, a wooded hill, one of the range known as Little North Mountain, near the Pughtown road, on the north side of which a corn-field, and on the south side an orchard, afforded excellent positions for artillery, in easy range of the work to be attacked — which was a bastion front open towards the town.

The names of the prisoners taken by the Yankees are as follows: Col R. F.

L Gray, of Capt Bear's Winchester company; and Jos McCartney, of Winchester. Our troops, after the engagement, retired to Pughtown, in Frederick county, where they remain — barring a few, who, with overdone prudence, retired to their homes, and are probably still there.
tack Winchester and Martinsburg simultaneously and capture what supplies we may have accumulated, particularly at the latter place. If Winchester cannot be taken, then they are to concentrate on Martinsburg. Afterwards they are to operate on the Baltimore and Ohio railroad, of course. It is supposed this cavalry crossed west from New Market through the gap from which emerges a branch of the north fork of the Shenandoah, and following the valley along the head waters of Cedar creek to Pughtown, coming out at Blue gap, through which passes the road from Winchester to Romney and Mechanicsburg. A glance at the map will show that this route is wholly protected from observation by Little North mountain. The valley is full of sympathizers with rebellion, and food and forage around there for man and beast. The same valley, followed down the bed of Back creek, leads to Martinsburg and Falling Waters, where the Baltimore and Ohio railroad is struck. The army for the present is
