The enemy has made no advances this morning, owing no doubt to his severe loss last evening. Three army corps pursue the route via Vienna to Chain Bridge, covered by all the effective cavalry.

the woods, who soon discovered, engaged and drove a large picket force of the enemy's cavalry across the fields toward Middletown. While the operations were going on, I advanced the main body of my regiment, consisting of five infantry and one battto the Lancers. It was my intention to cut off the retreat of the enemy's cavalry at the junction of the roads between Middletown and Jefferson, but the pursuit and fire of Capt. Parisen was too vigorous, and the enemy's horses too fleet, for the acre day and night, to be ready for any emergency that might offer. In an hour after we took up our line of march on the Middletown road, and proceeding about ten miles at a quick pace, we found the enemy in a very strong position, high up in what is attle — only time to state its broadest features, then mount and spur for New-York. After the brilliant victory near Middletown, Gen. McClellan pushed forward his army rapidly, and reached Keedysville with three corps on Monday night. That march h

ce on the left side and emerged at the back of his head. The ball coursed around the bones without breaking them. Major Terry, of Wytheville, was shot through the arm, Captain Fulton through the neck, and Lieutenant Luke through the shoulder — all severe wounds. Capt. A. V. Scott, of the Twenty-third Virginia regiment, was badly shot in the arm. Colonel Neff, of the Thirty-third Virginia, was killed. The wounded have all been removed to hospitals established near Aldie, in the county of Loudoun. As our informants proceeded towards Aldie, on Friday morning, they heard tremendous cannonading in the direction of the battle-field of the day before. Of the result of this fight and of the one on the succeeding day, we know only through General Lee's two despatches to the President, which will be found in this day's paper, in the proceedings of the Senate. Since writing the above we learn that Major May, of the Twelfth Virginia, was killed, and Lieut.-Col. Skinner, of the First Virg

ck; but I feared that during the next day — by which time the river would have fallen sufficiently to be passed at any of the fords — the enemy would make an attempt to cross at Rappahannock station, or at the fords between that point and Sulphur Springs. Yet, as we were confronted at Waterloo Bridge and Sulphur Springs by the main body of the enemy, still moving toward our right, and as the heavy column, mentioned previously, was marching with all speed in the direction of White Plains and Salem, and from those points would be able to turn our right by the direction of Thoroughfare Gap, or even north of that place, it was with the greatest reluctance, and only because I felt bound to do so under my instructions, that I took measures again to assume my communications with Fredericksburgh. I append herewith orders and despatches sent and received during the twenty-third and twenty-fourth of August, which will of themselves furnish a succinct account of the movements here set forth, a

Sprague, Governor State of Rhode Island: sir: I have the honor to submit the following report of the part taken by this regiment in the battle of Sharpsburgh on the seventeenth instant: On the afternoon of the sixteenth, Harland's brigade, consisting of the Eighth, Eleventh, Six-teenth Connecticut, and Fourth Rhode Island, left the bivouac it had occupied on the left of the Sharpsburgh road, and proceeded in a south-westerly direction, following the general course of the Antietam Creek for three or four miles, and took up a position behind a range of hills covering a stone bridge, which crossed the creek. The regiment lay upon its arms all night, having its front covered by its own pickets. The Fourth had the left of the brigade line, and upon its left lay Fairchilds's brigade,

I took off my shirt and gave it to him, and sent him on his way rejoicing toward Middleburgh. I happened to have on a clean shirt, having bathed in Bull Run on Friday morning, and changed my clothing. On Saturday I had the narrowest escape yet; two cannon-balls, within a minute of each other, passed so near me as almost to take away

They served me admirably in this respect, giving notice of Bragg's approach when over fifty miles distant, and notifying me of his numbers, pieces of artillery, direction taken, etc., in every movement made by him on his advance from Cumberland River. On Saturday, September thirteenth, Col. Scott, with a brigade of cavalry and a battery of five mountain-howitzers, came down the north side of the river from Greensburgh, and at eight o'clock P. M. demanded an unconditional surrender of the place. I peremptorily refused, and at three o'clock the next morning he commenced an attack by firing on our pickets. They contested the ground so stubbornly that he was compelled to bring up his artillery to drive them in, which he accomplished at daybreak, after losing his guide and a lieutenant-colonel killed. At daylight a furious attack was made on the pickets, on the south side of the river, by a large force o

ation, Gen. Sigel having been directed immediately upon crossing at Sulphur Springs to march down the left bank of the Rappahannock until he connected closely with General McDowell's right. Early on the morning of the twentieth, the enemy drove in Col. Clark, A. D.C., from the Signal corps station, of the movements of the enemy on the south side of Hedgeman or Rappahannock River. The facts are reported as having been observed by himself, and can be relied upon as being as near the truth as than to the north. It is also thought that while a portion of his force has marched up the immediate right bank of the Rappahannock, a larger portion has gone through Culpeper up the Sperryville road. No doubt these various suppositions may have occ, Jackson, so used, includes Hill, Ewell, and the Stonewall division--General Lee, without much opposition, reached Rappahannock River, a few miles above Rappahannock station, where a part of Longstreet's troops had a sharp fight.

When first General McClellan began to intimate by his despatches that he designed making this movement toward Jamestly urged them upon the President and the Secretary of War. After General McClellan had taken up his position at Harrison's Landing, I addressed him a letter, stating to him my position and the distribution of the troops under my command, and requetachments from his main force at Richmond as would enable the army of the Potomac to withdraw from its position at Harrison's Landing, and to take shipping for Acquia Creek or for Alexandria; and if, as was feared, the enemy should throw his whole fst. This small fraction of twenty thousand five hundred men was all of the ninety-one thousand veteran troops from Harrison's Landing which ever drew trigger under my command, or in any way took part in that campaign.
