Services tendered. --Rev. Jos. R. Jones, Rector of Christ Church, Millwood, Clarke county, has tendered his services to the Gov. ernor as chaplain in the Virginia Army, but at the same time informs the Governor that he is a graduate of the Virginia Military Institute, and that he is willing to be assigned any position where he can best serve the State.
clock Johnson's pickets became engaged with the enemy's pickets just below Winchester, and drove them in. Soon thereafter Col. R. Lumden Andrews, with Carpenter's battery, opened fire on a battery of the enemy, which they had advanced out on the Millwood road, driving it into the town, and blowing up one of their caissons. This achievement drew upon Carpenter's battery a heavy, but not well directed fire from the enemy's artillery posted in the forts and on the heights above and beyond the townof drawing the enemy's fire on the town. The rest of the division, consisting of Smith's Hays's, and Hoke's brigades, were now engaged in the execution of the flank movement. Meantime General Johnston moved a portion of his division across the Millwood road, and threw out a line of skirmishers, so as to divert attention from Early's operations.

Robertson came back with Longstreet, who was in the advance, through Chester Gap, and Baker brought up Ewell's rear, which was the last of the infantry corps.

I have thus hastily recapitulated the operations of the cavalry during this ever memorable campaign. It is a record that speaks for itself and its gallant commander, and no word of praise is needed to show the fidelity of the one or the efficiency of the other.
the Valley last Tuesday. Captain Baylor's company, of the Twelfth Virginia cavalry, has been on detached service for two weeks, under Lieutenant Baylor, and on last Tuesday were to meet at Kernstown. The Yankees got wind of it, and fifty-six of the Twenty-first New York cavalry went up there to catch our men as they came in squads to the rendezvous. It happened, however, that before they arrived, Lieutenant Baylor had thirty-five men together, and, hearing of their trip, caught them near Millwood. Only thirteen of the Yankees escaped--seven being killed, seven wounded, and the rest are now in the Libby. --We did not lose a man. In the two weeks Baylor's company, which numbers thirty-five men, has been on detached service it has captured eighty five Yankees and one hundred and fifteen horses — averaging six a day.
