captured artillery are now at my headquarters. I think that not less than three hundred wagons and ambulances were either captured or destroyed. The accident of the morning turned to our advantage as much as though the whole movement had been planned. The only regret I have is the capture, in the early morning, of from eight hundred to one thousand of our men. I am now sending to the War Department ten battle-flags. The loss of artillery in the morning was seven from Crook, eleven from Emory, six from Wright. From all that I can learn, I think that Early's reinforcements could not be less than twelve thousand men. P. H. Sheridan, Major-General Commanding. The latest from Sherman — the "pursuit"of Hood still kept up. A telegram from Chattanooga, dated the 21st, after stating that "it is believed that both armies are in North Georgia," says: Hood is reported to be rapidly moving down Brownstown Valley to Jacksonville and Talladega, where
le. Captain Nelson, of the city police, was dispatched to the house of Dr. Edwards to arrest Colonel Vincent Marmaduke, brother of the rebel general. At the same time, a detachment of the military proceeded to the Richmond House and captured the rebel Colonel G. St. Leger Grendel, Morgan's adjutant-general, and J. T. Shanks, an escaped rebel prisoner. B. S. Morris, a man noted for hatred to the North, was also arrested. They are all now confined in Camp Douglas. In a dispatch to General Crook, this morning, Colonel Sweet says: "I have complete proof of his having assisted Shanks, the rebel prisoner, to escape, and of plotting to release the prisoners at this camp." Meantime, another detachment of the military invested the residence of Charles Walsh, near Camp Douglas. His house was entered and a portion of the contents taken to camp. Captain Cantrell and a private named Charles Fravers, both belonging to the rebel service, were there, and arrested as spies. In Walsh's

The Sixth corps marched in the same manner along the west of the line. The wagon trains occupied the centre of the column, also marching in two lines; one along the pike, the other in the field. The artillery brought up the rear of the column, and the Eighth corps, or rather the command of General Crook, covered the whole, marching in the rear. When fairly straightened out along the pike and in the fields, the troops presented a most interesting sight, to say nothing of the strange accompaniment of black servants mounted on skinny horses, other on foot, packing cooking utensils and odds and ends of every kind. There are cows driven or led along, some of them with soldier's knapsacks-lashed upon their horns in default of better transportation. At 1 P. M. only the cavalry, whos
wheeled himself in front, and the Doctor received a blow from a sabre across his bach and shoulders from behind, which threw him off his balance; his cap fell off, and the captain brought his sabre down upon his bare head, which ended all further consciousness for a time. When he came to, the Doctor found a party of rebels standing over him; his pockets had been turned wrong side out, and he heard one of them remark, "Crooks, the son of a b — h hasn't got any watch."--emphasis on the "got." Crook's answer was, "Then take that d — n poncho, and let's be off." It was stripped off. The Doctor's horse had escaped down the road, and was recovered an hour afterward. Dr. Adams, after sufficiently recovering from his blow and the fall from his horse, crawled into a corner of the fence, and lay a quiet spectator during the remainder of the fight. All this occurred within a few minutes. The Doctor's hospital steward having captured a rebel, asked another rebel, whom he mistook for one o

oras compliment the rebel flag and pass the American colors in contempt. The capture of Generals Crook and Kelly. A correspondent of the Baltimore American gives an interesting account of the capture, by McNeil, of Generals Crook and Kelly. He says: At half-past 2 o'clock a body of picked cavalry, seventy in number, mounted upon horses selected for the purpose, crossed the river atre disturbed by them except the telegraph officer. A few moments after, the officers of General Crook's staff, thinking they had heard footsteps, and fearing fire, got up, and finding the room oquired about an hour. In the meantime, a body of forty horsemen, belonging to the escort of General Crook, were ordered out, and in one hour and twenty minutes started in pursuit. As soon as the wiely fresh horses, they succeeded in getting away. This is the plain story of the capture of Generals Crook and Kelly. It was a bold and daring attempt, successfully carried out by men selected f
use of Delegates. The House met at 11 A. M. Speaker Sheffey in the chair. The House took up and concurred in the material amendments of the Senate to the bill amending the law creating a commercial agency for the State of Virginia for the manufacture and distribution of cotton cloth, cotton cards, etc., and defining the duties of the agent. A resolution of thanks to Lieutenant Jesse C. McNeil and his command for their gallant capture, in their fortified camp in Maryland, of Generals Crook and Kelly, now prisoners of war at the Libby Prison, Richmond, was unanimously adopted. Mr. Bouldin, from the Finance Committee, reported a bill for the relief of William E. Herndon, late member of the House of Delegates, now in the lunatic asylum, the result of a wound received in battle. Mr. Buford, from a special committee, reported a bill to incorporate the Lynchburg and Danville Railroad Company. The bill to appropriate the sum of seventy-five thousand dollars to the
riter adds something about an alleged conspiracy to capture General Sheridan: A few days ago, three Winchester families, by the names of Sherrard, Lee and Bunell, were sent without our lines on the charge of disloyalty. It is alleged they conspired together to get up a sociable ball, to which General Sheridan was to be an invited guest, and that during its progress a detachment of Mosby's guerrillas was to seize the General, take him captive, and convey him to Richmond, a la Kelley and Crook. The plan was frustrated, and the ladies (!) who concocted it are now in full communion with those for whom they have exhibited such a warm sympathy. A few days ago, a scouting party under the command of Sergeant Mulligan, went up the Valley on special duty. On their return they were met by a body of guerrillas, who attacked them, killing a scout by the name of Hall, and severely wounding private Goff, of the Seventeenth Pennsylvania cavalry. The affair took place near Middletown, th
Going North. --About four hundred Yankee prisoners will leave Richmond this morning on their return home by flag-of-truce boat. Among the number are thirty-three officers, including Generals Kelly and Crook, recently captured at Cumberland, Maryland, by Lieutenant McNeil's cavalry.
