S. (called Mudwall ) Jackson out of that shire, and over the Warm Springs Mountain, in a series of skirmishes. He destroyed the Confederate saltpeter works, and other public property in that region, and menaced Staunton. At Rock Gap, near White Sulphur Springs, he was met by a much larger force than his own, of General Sam. Jones's command, led by Colonel George S. Patten, when a severe struggle for the pass ensued, which lasted a greater portion of the 26th and 27th of August. 1863. Averill's ammunition began to fail at noon of the latter day, when Patten was re-enforced. Averill retreated, and made his way back to Huttonsville, weakly pursued by the Confederate cavalry. Averill's loss was two hundred and seven men, and a Parrott gun,

Being personally in the midst of the engagement, from its commencement to its close, I have waited till now to gather together all the particulars of a rather warm skirmish, which at one time threatened to become a really serious affair. The First and Second brigades broke camp at about seven o'clock A. M. yesterday, to move from the camp at White Sulphur Springs to the neigh-borhood of Fayetteville, then and still occupied by General Doubleday, of Franklin's corps.
