Last night it was reported, seemingly on good authority, that the column of the enemy retreating on the Fancy Farm road made a stand near Fancy Farm, seven miles from Liberty, where our forces attacked them early yesterday morning, and at 11 o'clock, when our informant left the neighborhood of the field, all the accounts were highly favorable, and it was sFancy Farm, seven miles from Liberty, where our forces attacked them early yesterday morning, and at 11 o'clock, when our informant left the neighborhood of the field, all the accounts were highly favorable, and it was stated that we had taken several hundred prisoners, and were driving the enemy, with the prospect of making important captures.

the accounts were highly favorable, and it was stated that we had taken several hundred prisoners, and were driving the enemy, with the prospect of making important captures. A demonstration on the Southside Railroad. In this paper yesterday we mentioned that a raiding party of the enemy's cavalry passed near Campbell Court-House, Saturday, moving in the direction of the Southside Railroad. This statement proved to be correct, and the enemy designed to destroy the bridge across James river, six miles below town. They reached the vicinity of the bridge, and finding it too heavily guarded to be successfully attacked, they retreated without an assault, and rejoined the main body of their forces some time Sunday morning, while on the retreat towards Liberty. Several stragglers were picked up by our scouting parties and brought into town Sunday. The Virginia and Tennessee road.

Several stragglers were picked up by our scouting parties and brought into town Sunday. The Virginia and Tennessee road. The damage done by the Yankees to the Virginia and Tennessee railroad, while not fully ascertained, is reported to be very heavy. Besides the burning of the bridges across Big and Little Otter rivers and Elk creek, the track is said to be torn up for several miles, all the depots between here and Big Lick are burned, and the water tanks destroyed. If these damages be correctly stated, it will take some time to put the road in running order again. Yankee Gossip about the expedition. Gens. Hunter, Crock, Averill, and Sullivan put up with Major Hutter, about four miles from town, whose beautiful home was used as headquarters. In their suit were the notorious Dr. Rucker and

palling. The people were stripped of everything, fences were torn down, crops trampled up and every specters of vandalism that savages could think of was practiced. Hogs, sheep, cattle, poultry, were stolen and carried off, and when not needed for food were wantonly slaughtered and left to rot on the ground. Among others we have heard of as being thus brutally despoiled were Mrs Poindexter, Gen. Clay, Capt. Armistead, Dr. Floyd, and N. W. Barksdale, on and near the Forest road; and on the Salem road, Samuel Miller, Major G. C. Hutter, and Dr. Wowen. There were also others of whose names we have not been informed. And along the entire line of the enemy's march, as far as we can learn, the same scenes of plunder and robbery were enacted. Capt. Paschal Buford was stripped of everything, cattle, horses, hogs, provisions, &c, all were taken, and so with Capt. Wm. Smith, living near Lowry's, and all persons living on or within reach of the road. In Liberty the case was the same and t

Along the road between this place and Liberty, a gentleman who passed over it yesterday tells us that there are at least 100 or more dead horses and mules. When these animals gave out they were cruelly shot. The enemy were out of rations, and their chief Commissary told a lady Saturday morning that they were co

Averill stated to a gentleman of entire reliability that their loss was 800 killed, wounded, and missing. The heaviest fighting was on the farms of Mr.--McKinney afusion; and they also say that in conversation both officers and men expressed great surprise at finding the city so well prepared for resistance. Hunter and Averill made their headquarters at the house of Maj. J. C. Butler, near the Quaker Church, and up to Saturday morning the former boastingly expressed his intention to slehese damages be correctly stated, it will take some time to put the road in running order again.

Hunter, Crock, Averill, and Sullivan put up with Major Hutter, about four miles from town, whose beautiful home was used as headquarters. In their suit were the notorious Dr. Rucker and David H. Strother, (Port Crayon,) the former attached to Crook's staff. Major Hutter, being an old army officer, was well acquainted with Hunter, and talked freely to him respecting his expedition. Hunter said that he had fifty thousand men, and could take Lynchburg easily; that we had better make no resistance. When M

Finding they could not do the former they had to do the latter, and we predict that this is the last Yankee trip to Lynchburg. The pursuit. Hunter reached Liberty on his retreat Sunday about 2 o'clock, our forces but a short distance behind. His rear guard was overtaken about two miles West of Liberty on the road to Buchanan and a sharp skirmish ensued in which we are reported to have captured about 100 prisoners, besides killing and wounding several.

The line of battle extended from about half a mile above the toll gate (two and a half miles from Lynchburg,) on the Lynchburg and Salem turn pike, moving in a direction a little west of north, including portions of the land of Dr. Owen, Charles Moorman, John B. Lee, H. S. Barksdale, and terminating on the farm of Seth Halsey, near the Blackwater creek. The distance embraced by this line must be two and a half to three miles. A large body of cavalry supposed to be about 4,000 drawn up in line of battle in Captain Barksdale's field, on the Forest road, charged upon our fortifications with great spirit, and yelling defiance at the top of their voices, which were to the point while the Doctor stood concealed. He heard them cry, "come cut of your holes, you d — d we've got you now, come but of your holes.
