The gallant "Tom Powers," their leader, was killed; also a young man by the name of Bland. They threaten next time to come and burn Franklin.

Jackson, and reached Franklin on the following evening, a distance of 40 miles in twenty four hours! but the blackhearted scoundrels had left.

Evacuation of the Lower Valley. From Mr. Henry D. Beatt, lately of the Winchester Republican office, we have obtained the following account of the evacuation of Winchester, by Gen. Jackson, and its occupation by the enemy: For several days previous to Tuesday, the 11th, the enemy had been concentrating large forces at Banker's Hill, Smithfield, and Berryville, and everything indicated as advance movement on the part of Gen. Bunks. On Sunday a skirmish came off near Smithfield, between fifteen of Ashby's cavalry and a strong body of the enemy's troops in which the latter lost one man killed and one prisoner. The gallant "Black Horse" Cavalry, after inflicting this damage on the enemy, retired in good order.

Mrs. Hudson attempted to step over the "tumbling shaft," which revolves rapidly, and has a connection in the centre which presents sharp angles, and are very likely to catch and retain hold of a dress if brought in proximity. It is thought Mrs. Hudson's dress was caught in this way, and was instantaneously wrapped several times round t
