aintains that cavalry is one of the most effective arms to use in this country, and believes, if he had not ordered to bring up the infantry, the men, having got over the excitement occasioned by this first fire,would have done all that he could have expected of them. He has complimented the whole command, for the manner in which they bore the hardships of a bivouac in the snow, and a march of forty-three miles without rest, and with scant subsistence. When Gen. Lander was reinforced from Ohio, no wagons were furnished with the regiments; one of his best regiments has no tents, not a murmur has been heard, and the enemy driven from Moorfield on the south, to the eastern limits of his department, by a system of hurried marches and combinations, which compelled Jackson to retire, by threatening his subsistence-trains. As much has been said about General Lander's marching on Winchester, it may be remarked that he has never been ordered east of Romney, and all he has done since his re

We have in all seventy-five prisoners, and killed thirteen of the enemy, and lost two men and six. horses at their first fire. I led the charge in person, and it was a complete surprise. Col. Carroll, commanding the Fifth or Eighth Ohio, made a very daring and successful reconnoissance immediately afterward to Unger's Store. Major Frothingham is entitled to great credit, for building, under my direction, in four hours, in the dead of night, a complete bridge across the Great Cacapon, at an unfrequented mountain road. Two columns of two thousand men each, marched thirty-two miles, and one column forty-three miles since four P. M., yesterday, besides bridging the river. The papers taken, and my own reconnoissance to the south, prove the country clear, and that Jackson and Loring are in Winchester.

regiments be-having admirably, following and engaging the enemy to the last, until ordered back. The pursuit was continued eight miles. The result of this affair was the capture of eighteen commissioned officers, and forty-five non-commissioned officers and privates. Thirty of the rebels were killed, with a loss on our side of seven killed and wounded. Col. Carroll drove the enemy beyond the limits of Gen. Lander's department and returned. Gen. Lander has applied to the Governor of Maryland for the promotion of John Cannon to a lieutenancy. He has also the names of several deserving men of the cavalry force. He attributes the misconduct of the cavalry to the absence of several of their officers, now ill at Cumberland. Capt. Carman is reported to have behaved well. The same force, on independent scouting parties by companies and squads, has behaved well. It was the first time they were ever marched as squadrons before the enemy.

He captured four thousand bushels of corn and two hundred and twenty-five beef-cattle, from one of the rebel depots, forty miles south of Romney, a few days since. His men, on their marches, usually take rations in their haversacks, and beef-cattle are driven loose with the command. They have made some

rations on hand. It was soon covertly whispered among officers that it was the intention of Gen. Lander to move on Blooming Gap, a strong pass in the mountains, reported to be held by Gen. Carson's brigade, four thousand strong. For this purpose he had called in all his cavalry force, numbering nearly five hundred men, and led by Col. Anastanzel of the First Virginia regiment. They had been arriving for two days previous. It appeared afterward that it had been intended to bridge the Cacapon River the next day, but the enemy having discovered the small party of scouts led by Gen. Lander, he concluded to make the march that night. Twenty wagons were placed in the river, planks were hauled, and in four hours a bridge improvised at a point about seven miles south of the railroad. This bridge, one hundred and eighty feet in length, was built between nine and one o'clock at night. It was about seven miles to Blooming Gap from where the river was bridged. Gen. Lander's intention
