Gen. Lee's Official report of his recent operations. The following is Gen. Lee's official report of his recent operations in Northern Virginia: Headq's Army of Northern Va., October 23, 1863. Gen. S. Cooper, A. and I. General: General: In advance of a detailed report, I have the honor to submit, for the information of the Department, the following outline of the recent operations of this army. With the design of bringing on an engagement with the Federal army, which was encamped around Culpeper Court-House, extending thence to the Rapidan, this army crossed that river on the 9th inst., and advanced by way of Madison Court House. Our progress was necessarily slow, as the march was by circuitous and concealed roads, in order to avoid the observation of the enemy. Gen. Fitz Lee, with his cavalry division and a detachment of infantry, remained to hold our lines south of the Rapidan; Gen. Stuart, with Hampton's division, moved on the right of the column. With

d attacked him near Buckland. As soon as General Stuart heard the sound of Lee's guns he turned upon the enemy, who, after a stubborn resistance broke and fled in confusion, pursued by General Stuart nearly to Haymarket, and by General Lee to Gainesville. Here the Federal infantry was encountered, and after capturing a number of them during the night the cavalry slowly retired before their advance on the following day. When the movement of the army from the Rapidan commenced Gen. Imboden was We captured about 200 prisoners, 8 wagons and ambulances, arms, horses and equipments. The rout was the most complete that any cavalry has ever suffered during the war. Crossing at Buckland, General Fitz Lee pushed down the pike towards Gainesville, while I, with the few men of Gordon's and Rosser's brigades who could be collected after our unusually long chase, moved around to our left and pressed down towards Haymarket. Here I encountered, besides a large cavalry force, the first army

ned, he retreated across Broad Run. The next morning he was reported to be fortifying beyond Bull Run, extending his line towards the Little River Turnpike. The vicinity of the entrenchments around Washington and Alexandria rendered it useless to turn his new position, as it was apparent that he could readily retire to them, and would decline an engagement unless attacked in his fortifications. A further advance was therefore deemed unnecessary, and after destroying the railroad from Cub Run southwardly to the Rappahannock, the army returned on the 18th to the line of that river, leaving the cavalry in the enemy's front. The cavalry of the latter advanced on the following day, and some skirmishing occurred at Buckland. General Stuart, with Hampton's division, retired slowly towards Warrenton, in order to draw the enemy in that direction, thus exposing his flank and rear to General Lee, who moved from Auburn and attacked him near Buckland. As soon as General Stuart heard

The enemy advanced from that place in superior numbers to attack Gen. Imboden, who retired, bringing off his prisoners and captured property, his command suthe building with artillery at less than two hundred yards, and with half a dozen shell drove out the enemy into the streets, where he formed and fled towards Harper's Ferry. At the edge of town he was met by the 18th cavalry--Col. Imboden's and Gilmor's battalions. One volley was exchanged, when the enemy threw down his armurrendered unconditionally. The Colonel, Lieut.-Colonel, and five others, who were mounted, fled at the first fire, and ran the gauntlet, and escaped towards Harper's Ferry. The force I captured was the 9th Maryland regiment and three companies of cavalry, numbering between four and five hundred men and officers. I have not had

Early next morning, 13th, the march was resumed, and the columns re-united at Warrenton in the afternoon, when another halt was made to supply the troops with provisions. The enemy fell back rapidly along tlowing day, and some skirmishing occurred at Buckland. General Stuart, with Hampton's division, retired slowly towards Warrenton, in order to draw the enemy in that direction, thus exposing his flank and rear to General Lee, who moved from Auburn as of Major-General Lee, I retired with Hampton's division slowly before the enemy, until within two miles and a half of Warrenton, in order that Major-General Lee, coming from Auburn, might have an opportunity to attack the enemy in flank and rear. first resisted my attack stubbornly; but once broken, the rout was complete.

Imboden was instructed to advance down the Valley, and guard the gaps of the mountains on our left. This duty was well perforransportation; only a few escaped to Harper's Ferry. The enemy advanced from that place in superior numbers to attack Gen. Imboden, who retired, bringing off his prisoners and captured property, his command suffering very little loss, and inflicting (2,436,) including forty-one commissioned officers. Of the above, four hundred and thirty-four (434) were taken by General Imboden. A more complete account, with a statement of our loss in killed, wounded and prisoners, will be forwarded as snto the streets, where he formed and fled towards Harper's Ferry.

, the first army corps, who retired a short distance beyond Haymarket on the Carolina road. I attacked their infantry pickets by moonlight, and scattered them over the fields, capturing many. General Lee pressed down to within a short distance of Cainsville, when he encountered their infantry, and captured prisoners from the first army corps on that road also. The pursuit was continued until after dark. The cavalry force was commanded by Kilpatrick, and composed of ten regiments. Most respectfully, (Signed,) J F B Stuart, Major General. Official: John Withers, Asst. Adj Gen. Headq'rs Valley District,in the Fork of the Shenandoah, Near Front Royal, Oct. 19, 1863. Col. R. H. Chilton, Chief of Staff, A. N. V.

The surprise was complete, the enemy having no suspicion of our approach until I had the town entirely surrounded. I found the ene
's Ferry forces, Infantry, artillery, and cavalr, appeared at Charlestown in less than two hours after I fired the first gun. Having promptly sent off the prisoners and property, I was prepared for them. I retired from the town and fell back slowly towards Berryville, fighting the enemy all the way, from 10 o'clock till near sunset. My loss, as far as ascertained, is very small--five killed, three or four mortally, and 15 or 20 wounded, more or less. Capt. Colman will lose an army and Captain Cumnel was badly shot in the hip. I think a few, 10 or 15 broken down men, who straggled behind, were captured. We killed and wounded dreadfully several of the enemy in the Court-House, including the Adjutant of the 9th Md.; and in the fight along the road the enemy's loss was considerable, as we ambuscaded them several times with good effect. I marched nearly all night, and reached the river here at daybreak. It was quite full, but I have effected a safe crossing of the north branch. Ver
