Tho turmcrs living along tho river are again
Tanning oil' their stock, and a long string of

A large quantity of Government propir'y,
Which was stored in tho tnurkei-hoitse in this

The excitement of Iho lest two duys l as not

titlzens line the streets, eager to hear the litest
news from tha valley. Many of them spout a

The Oth Corps tuaiutuiti their hold on tho
"Weldon Railroad, and have thrown up such
works as make their position iuapivgnabl".
They most effectually destroyed the railroad
tome miles on lirst s rilJng the road, bnt It is
now thought that, having secured a forti'ied posi

The line held by the ."-th Corps now forms our
extreme lt-ft, the Oth Corps having swung around
and formed a junction with the .0th Carps.
The Rebels seem to foel decidedly uneasy in
view of our lodgment upon the important Wel

eject us from the aniioyiug position. Yu.;tord.iy
