y Department at our place, where a large amount of previous are stored. Last night a messenger was dispatched Gen. Edward Johnson to Col. Goode's Regiment, camped near this place; also Col. Wm. C. Scott's regiment, encamped Crab Bottom, to report at Camp Alleghany without delay. The presumption is, the orders were sent on the and that Gen. Johnson anticipated to attack at Alleghany to day. Up to the time, however, no attack has been made but it may come off to-morrow. I am happy to state that Colonel Edward Johnson has been promoted to Brigade General, and Capt. Jas. Deshier promoted to Colonel of the 12th Georgia, in place of Gen. Johnson, promoted. I met Col. Deshier to-day in an ambulance on his way eastward. He tolGen. Johnson, promoted. I met Col. Deshier to-day in an ambulance on his way eastward. He told me that he felt greatly improved from the wounds received at the battle of Alleghany, and is in hopes he would soon be able to return to his command.
d to Alleghany; but upon reconnaissance being made, the enemy were found to have gone in the direction of Huntersville, where there was a large quantity of our provisions, ammunition, &c. Gordon and Scott's regiments were then ordered back to Crab Bottom and Monterey, where they arrived on Saturday night. This excitement had hardly subsided, when a courier from Monterey reported that the enemy with 8,000 troops had gone to Huntersville and taken possession of our stores, and it was believed that they intended to come in our rear and take possession of Monterey, where a large quantity of provisions were stored, and by such means cut off our supplies. Gen. Johnson has sent out scouts, who will report to-night; and if the reports be true our force here will fall back to Staunton. it is not sufficient to contend with 20 or 30,000 Federals, with any hope of success. If, however, they do not cut off our supplies, and will attack us here, we will give them a very warm reception.
