ad we resisted with half the usual determination the result would have been different. General Early fell slowly back, recrossed Cedar creek and marched through Strasburg in the direction of Fisher's Hill. By some unaccountable mistake or oversight, the artillery, both our own and that captured from the enemy, was in the rear of the army. Hence the loss. When just outside of Strasburg, about 9 o'clock at night, it being very dark, a very small party of Yankee cavalry, supposed to be reconnoitering, (not over a hundred men,) taking a by- road and coming out on the turnpike at a mill situated on a creek running into Cedar creek about a mile from StrasbStrasburg, dashed upon the train, and rode along the line of ambulances, firing their pistols and ordering the ambulances to turn out. Dr. McGuire, who had charge of them, seeing what had taken place, turned off some twenty into the woods, and thus saved them. The troops who guarded the train, knowing the efficiency of the Federal caval

That the whole loss in men was but eleven hundred, killed, wounded and missing; for, from all we can learn, the statement of Sheridan that he had sixteen hundred prisoners is utterly false. In the meantime, Early has so far recovered that he has secured his prisoners and sent them safely here; and Sheridan has so little recovered, that after losing, according to Yankee accounts, five thousand men, killed, wounded and missing, he did not dare to pursue. Early has given no intimation tha
