Stuart and 1500 of his cavalry. He went as far as Chambersburg, which surrendered; and he was gathering horses, etc., for the use of the army, paying for them in Confederate notes.

em amended, and a certain grove cut down-and recommends that engineers be put to work, with orders to leave their kid gloves behind. He thinks more is to be apprehended from an attack on Petersburg than Richmond; and requests that Gen. Wise be ordered to march thither from Chaffin's Bluff, on the first alarm. He had not heard of the reported victory of Lee. July 8 I am glad to copy the following order of Gen. Lee: General orders no. 73.headquarters army of Northern Virginia, Chambersburg, Pa., June 27th, 1863. The commanding general has observed with marked satisfaction the conduct of the troops on the march, and confidently anticipates results commensurate with the high spirit they have manifested.
