Ohio and Eighth Virginia, afterward supported by the Garibaldi Guard, formed our advance, and commenced the <*>attle of Cross Keys, by sharp skirmishing, at nine o'clock in the morning. During the day they obtained possession of the enemy's ground, 12. Col. Albert Tracy, A. A.G.: I have the honor to report the part taken by the Ohio brigade, in the engagement at Cross Keys, on the eighth instant. It was about one o'clock P. M. when I arrived near the point of the road leading to Port Repe opposite side of the river. An unfordable river was between them, and the only bridge was in flames. The battle of P Cross Keys was now a matter of history, and the famous pursuit of Jackson and his army was at an end. Gen. Fremont had left Fra the misfortune on the left would have captured Gen. Jackson with both army and baggage. Do you ask why it is called Cross Keys? Well, there is, about the middle of the battle-ground, a store-house, a church, and a house or two; this is called by

While one of the rebel regiments was at work immediately at the station, another dashed upon Gen. Pope's wagon-train, half a mile further up the road. The train was guarded by about two hundred of the Pennsylvania Bucktails, under Colonel Kane, who had reached here the previous day, since being wounded at Cross Keys. The men rushed out and fired a volley in the darkness, the rebels fell back, but advanced again, and, surrounding the whole party, had Col. Kane and some one hundred and forty-nine of his men prisoners. But, Providence favoring, Col. Kane, encouraging his men, sent them out one by one to the rear in the storm, and when all were out followed himself; and, while the rebels were absorbed by the storm, escaped.
