forces were twice driven from their position, with severe loss, but receiving reinforcements, finally drove the enemy back, capturing several batteries and some five thousand prisoners. Reports conflict as to the precise locality of this engagement, one representing it at Bristow's Station, and the other near the Plains, on the Manassas Gap road. If such a fight really took place, we think it more than likely the latter location is correct. --It is also stated by some that the divisions of Jackson, A. P. Hill, and Ewell, were all in the battle, and others that it was fought by Ewell's division alone. Another report, which was brought to the city by passengers on Saturday, and again yesterday, represents that Gen. Stuart has taken Harper's Ferry and holds possession of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Bridge at that point. No particulars of the capture of this place are furnished, but those familiar with Stuart's dashing exploits are generally ready to believe any report with ref
thern journals. It will be seen that he confesses to a heavy loss in the brigade which he commanded: Hdq'rs 3d Brigade, in the Field, Camp at Cedar Mountain, Va., Aug. 11, '62. Brigadier-General A. S. Williams, commanding 1st division 2d army corps, Army of Virginia: Sir. --I have the honor to make the following report of the part taken by my brigade in the recent battle of Saturday, August 9th, at Cedar Mountain, three miles from Culpeper Court-House, with the enemy under Gen. Jackson. At 9 A. M. on the 9th, after a hurried march of the day before, which was prolonged until 12 o'clock at night, I received orders to remove my brigade from the town of Culpeper, where we were in bivouac, rapidly to the front, as Gen. Crawford (commanding 1st brigade, 1st division) had been attacked and needed assistance. My brigade was put in motion at once, and reached the position of Gen. Crawford at about 12 M. I was directed by Gen. Roberts, of Gen. Pope's staff, to take positio
A Confederate Soldier shot. On the 18th ult.,--Kerfoot, a son of Wm. C. Kerfoot, of Clarke county, was shot by a party of Yankees near his father's residence. It seems that he had been about home since Gen. Jackson drove Banks out of the Valley, and that on the approach of the party of Yankees alluded to be attempted to escape, and took refuge in a corn-field, where he was shot. He died on the 22d. Several other Confederate soldiers of the same county were taken prisoners. We trust this will be a warning to our soldiers who remain in the enemy's line with the pretext that they cannot escape.
Belle Isle. --There are now considerably over 5,000 Yankee prisoners confined on Belle Isle. As may be imagined, the place is crowded. In dry weather the prisoners can get along excellently; but in rainy, wet weather — such, for instance, as yesterday morning — many more desirable stopping places can be thought of. It takes an enormous quantity of victuals to feed so many hungry mouths as are to be found on Belle Isle, and the one rosiness of the burden to the Government is not lessened when we reflect that all of the consumers are non-producers. The necessity of getting rid of the incubus is fully impressed on the Government. By the middle of the week arrangements will have been made to send 2,000 or more of the present inmates of Belle Isle to Varina for exchange. By that time, perhaps, as many more will have been received from Gen. Jackson; but the oldest prisoners will go firs
