Virginia (Virginia, United States) (search for this): article 18
From Northern Virginia. --We received yesterday no late or important news from the line of the Rapidan. Passengers by the Central train were unable to furnish even a rumor from the army of Gen. Lee, from which it is reasonable to infer that no military movements looking to active operations are in progress. From the Valley we learn that Major Gilmore's battalion made a raid in Jefferson and Clarke counties in the early part of last week. The Yankees at Charlestown, becoming alarmed, left the place during Tuesday night, and our men entered the same night, and at last accounts were still there. Charlestown is eight miles from Harper's Ferry. The last accounts we had from the latter point represented the Federal force there to be about 6,000. They have been sent off, however, to strengthen Rosecrans or Meade. When at Charlestown Major Gilmore is but five miles from the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad. We hope to hear that he has tapped that road.

country. But this is not all; indeed, it is the least part of the glorious result. By a single battle we succeeded in expelling the invader from the soil of Georgia, the teeming Egypt of the Confederacy, at a time of much solicitude in the public mind, and under circumstances which seemed propitious to the successful advance of the enemy into the very heart and stronghold of the country. Our success can only be measured by what our grief and loss would have been if the enemy had reached Atlanta and overrun the State. I have endeavored heretofore to pay due homage to the skill and gallantry by which this great victory was achieved. Officers and men alike did their duty, and to each and all is due, next to the Giver of all victory, the deep gratitude of an imperiled people. But the truth of history, as well as simple justice, requires it to be stated here, that no one officer, or body of men of the same number, could have contributed more to the triumph of the Confederate arm

K., 26th Tennessee, who deserted at Tullahoma on the 1st of July last, and afterwards enlisted in the enemy's ranks, and was captured at the late battle, lighting against us, was executed this morning for desertion. The whole of Stewart's division was ordered out to witness the execution. The Atlanta Appeal, in an article on the probability of Burnside reaching Rosecrans, says: That he had not effected a junction with Rosecrans up to Sunday evening, appears to be the general belief. We have met a gentleman who left the river, some distance above Harrison's landing, on Friday, who informs as that a small force of his command had made their appearance in that vicinity, but nothing was heard of any considerable body. It he attempts to reach Chattanooga on the south side of the rive

Omens in the sky. --A friend suggests that the late phenomenon witnessed in the atmosphere in Western Virginia of armies marching in the sky may be of happy augury.
