ho have us, and take nearly all of them prisoners, including their brigadier-general, and then release those of our men who were made prisoners, and those men now join in the advance; just at this moment the enemy hurl a line of cavalry against us from that cornfield, but our fire was so hot that those who were not unhorsed, made a wheel, and off to the rear they go. Our whole line now advances, and the enemy are in full retreat. We can plainly see Ewell with a part of his division on Slaughter mountain, way off on the right of our line, advancing too, as the mountain at this point was clear or open, we can see his skirmish line in the front firing as they advance, his line of battle following, and his cannon belching out fire and smoke, and the enemy's shells bursting on the mountain side; it was a magnificent and inspiring sight. We keep up the pursuit until 9 or 10 o'clock, when it ends in a terrific cannonade by the enemy. The battle won. The battle is fought and won; the 2

f the Potomac to the quick. As brave as he was imprudent, he was longing to show to the officers of the army of the West that his soldiers were not afraid to measure themselves with the victors of Cross Keys. Cedar Mountain, also called Slaughter Mountain, is a hill of considerable height, dotted with woods, and, running north and south, it dominates the whole surrounding country between Culpepper and the Rapidan. Before reaching the foot of this hill the road followed by Banks, along which he was to encounter Jackson, descends into the deep ravine of Cedar Creek; it then ascends a bare hillock stretching from south-east to north-west, and connecting again by a semicircular ridge of wooded hills with the spurs of Slaughter Mountain. The road forks on the hillock; to the right it passes among the wooded hills leading to Madison Court-house, beyond the Rapidan; the other branch, which leads to the railway bridge on this same river, descends into a second valley, of less depth than
The reported skirmish near Warrenton. We have received from Lieut. Bond, of the 1st Virginia Cavalry, an account of the skirmish near Warrenton, which differs essentially from the narrative copied in our paper of Saturday last. It appears that on last Friday week the enemy's cavalry drove in Col. Field's pickets, when the 1st Virginia Cavalry regiment went down to the banks of Cedar run, a mile below Warrenton Junction, to ascertain if there was any chance for a fight. Finding there was but a small body of the Yankee in the vicinity, some twenty of our men, armed with carbines, dismounted, and awaited their approach, while the rest fall back.--Shortly afterward, two companies of Federal cavalry came up, when our men opened fire upon them, causing a hasty retreat. It was afterwards ascertained that four of the enemy were wounded. The next day the Federal approached in larger force, and Stuart's cavalry was drawn up to receive them, but no fight occurred.

here." Operations of the army of the Potomac. A dispatch from Washington, dated the 20th inst., says: From various sources we have the following reports of doings in front: The rebels tried to effect crossings at different points on the Rapidan on Wednesday, but only succeeded at Robinson Ford, and there they were speedily driven back. Buford, with his cavalry, made a reconnaissance, crossing at Germania Ford and driving in the rebel pickets. The rebels are fortifying Slaughter Mountain, and it is thought a battle will take place near Orange Court- House. Miscellaneous. The Baltimore American's special Fort Monroe correspondent says there is a rumor there, which obtains belief with many, that Richmond is being evacuated. Beast Butler is canvassing Pennsylvania in favor of Curtin for Governor. He made his first speech at Harrisburg. There was a heavy frost, the first of the season, in Eastern Tennessee on Friday night, the 18th inst. The news
k the whole army, the Sixth corps in the centre, the Nineteenth corps on the right, Crook's command on the left, Merritt's cavalry division on the extreme left, Custer's division on the extreme right, made a magnificent, resistless charge, which swept the enemy off the face of the earth before it everywhere. The enemy had actually begun to throw up breastworks, and was preparing to go into camp when this charge was made. He was driven back at a double-quick through Middletown, across Cedar run, where he came from, and was thence pursued by our cavalry through and beyond Strasburg. Forty- three pieces of his artillery, some guns take; from us during the day, were captured at Strasburg; also, over a hundred wagons and ambulances, and caissons innumerable. The rebel General Ramseur was captured in an ambulance, seriously, if not mortally, wounded. Probably one thousand prisoners were picked up along the road. Two hours of daylight would have given us the rebel army almost entir
