1801.-Prom nu execssivo solicitudo to fol

Western Virginia soonor than I intended.
Put, returning, I find nothing of especial in
terest, lt is all il mistake that uny of our
troops hnvo been talion. Tho rumor will
hnvo renched you that niuo hnvo been cap
tured, but-it is nil a mistake. Two of Col.
dish's mon were captured a day or two ago,
hut they were token by Col. Kerslmw's hi en,
mid sustained no damage, therefore. They
were seen lo .enter a house in tho neighbor
hood of. Germantown, and tho ever-vigilant
scouts of the Second Regiment touk them
. pt i ve.
The most important facts I find, lire that
tho eire.ny is retiring from Fall's <'burch,
?md are being concentrated again within tho
li.?.its ol' thc District . ol' i 'ulumbie. There*
arc. in fact, indications (hat they are with

uertmn that there, .frc few iii Alexandria
hut a few companies-and it is possible,
therefore, that to avoid tho possibility of
light, which is now being urged upon them,
they may accept the alternative of the foot
race I suggested.
There is also a movement, from W ?dung- .
ton, tho significance of which id.'pinch oon
siilered. For some I imo past they have bcon
sending off oars sealed up, so -that the con
