Virginia becomes doubly important, and is doubtless enlisting the especial attention of the Confederate authorities. It would seem from the late advices reaching us from that direction, that Gen. Lee, failing in his forward movement upon Cheat mountain, was turning his attention to the operations in Greenbrier county, and that, with an escort of twenty-five men, he had gone over to the camp of Gen. Floyd, beyond Lewisburg at Meadow Bluff, to look after operations in that field. He is to bed legs and a plenty of ammunition. The best General for such an army is he who will keep them most actively on the march and most constantly loading and firing. Physical exertion is the great thing in mountain warfare; the refined strategy of science can have no play. While General Lee was weaving ingenious webs of strategy about Cheat Mountain, Rosencranz was legging it down to the Gauley. Legs and powder and ball do much better in the mountains than even the science of a Vauban or a Lee.
