The valley of Virginia hsa.'te a certain extent, become
historic ground, and the town of Winchester is, I pre
sume, fkmi liar to moet of your renders as Ore scene of
the contest between "Stonewall Jackson" ?nd the gal
lant Shields.
Although the more adttve operations of (ho main body
of'General Pope's ?nrtny have, fbr the past few weeks,
monopolised the attention of civilians, yet military men
have been aware that quiet, but not leu Important, pre
parations have been made here to check any advance
that might possibly he modo down the valley.
Winchester, for several reasons, is m important strate
gic point, and the natural advantages have been Im
proved to the Utmost.
The General command lr* thla brigade, and ono of the
heroes of Pea Ridge, has puahed'iu the work with hi8
accustomed energy?(bis Chicago friends will know that
that oovers tho whole ground)?and. assisted by his able |
and untiring chief enginosr,Capt. Powell, of Cincinnati,;
has brought both fort and camp to a point where a fow
finishing'tenches will render them perfect.
It wodM of oourae be utsfivisable for me to give any
detailed account of the defences. Suffice it to say (hat
we have means end men to meet any emergency'th it
may arise. We have, en old Stonewall's principle,
"thrown no chance sway," and should that enterprising
Individual or any of his ? oonfriers feel disposed to try
ear metal, we will be prepared to give them tr cordial
roTeptton.
'Our General is a tosinses man, and msana busi

Yesterday the oowmanding officer reoetved a magnifl.

i As the reverberation of the last gun died away the Gene

the commend briefly, end to the pctot. He was followed
hyOokmei Trimble, of the Sixtieth 'Jhlo, rather more at
length, to n stirring appeal to the patriotism of the troops.
Oolooei D*t taaeey, of las CaribuMbftiurd, mods s model
speech for its conciseness and fosse. As nearly as I can
recollect, his words ware about aw follows:?
nuse Somiiswb At the ueehe fifths General I will aim
my s few words to you. I am s soldier, and not an
orator, and I will be brief, and la cm sure you will all
agree with raa when I say, may the General, whoso good
fortune it has been to raise Utfa glorious Sag to day, have
a speedy opportunity of proving <hia own devotion and
that of his command to that proud emblem of freedom.
May he soon lead us te victory, even if that victory be
purchased with death. Three cheers for our General and
flag.
Of course the Colonel "brought Mown the house," and;
you probably never heard three each hearty cheers from
the same number of threats. 1 am not much in that way
myself ; but I fairly lost my head and positively yelled
myself hoarse. It went ofi well, end every one felt satis

Are ws to retreat still farther towards Washington?
That will depend altogether upon tboability of the enemy
todrire us from the Rappahannock, and it Is generally
?greed that be means to do It, If superior numbers, pros
tigs and resohre can contribute to our defeat.
Wo are hopeful, but far from sanguine. Wo cannot
have less than two hundred thousand men to menace us,
and may havo fifty thousand above that estimate. Ho
la confident, and hopes within a week to besiege us upon
the heights of Arlington?mayhap to fight the battle of \
Bull rtin a second time, with his attitude reversed and ne
longer acting upon the defensive.
Our position on the Rappahannock is a strong one. Tbe
eoutftry hereabout is flat and rolling, with a few eminences,
and the river is forduble at almost every point. Wo oc
cupy both bulks of tbo river, but are mainly located On the
south side, where wo have planted batteries open a Tew
or*-os and occupied some old earthworks deserted by tbe
enemy. It is believed that the rebels were coming up
all night, and we sen clouds of dust over the tree tops
this morning, Indicating tho pre ence of moving bodies of
men. His cav lry made ahoadl-mg dash for tbo Rappa
hannock bridpo yesterday, but wore handsomely
chocked by tbe Ira Harris cavalry. The rebels lost seve.
ralmen. A few of our men were woundfcd. All night
and all day yesterday our troops were drawn up in line
of battle, aud the loci Jag prevails today that wo shall
be stacked before long. Ho will probably first moke re
cotinoissauces to soo tho extent of our'flunks, and then
hurl his thousands upon us. God and our good genius
he with us dow.
Tbe men do not Suffer, although, they have been lately
subjected to tho scarcity of "hard tack." Tbe trains de
not ran down so far an this position, aud all the wagons
are packed in Hie rear. They do not toed encouragement,
and know the consequences of rieftut at this time. Wo
shall make a desperate stand, and write another trlbdte
to Northern valor on the guide book to Richmond.
Military crKlCS profess to believe that our forced m&
vanees to the Rapid an were prematurely made. Jadkson
disturbed our figures somewhat at Cedar Mountaln,mnd
possibly deranged eur calculathna. As a consequence,
h" and tils coadjutors assail us new within thirty ro#BS of
Manassas, as! with-the largert army tbe rebels have
ever raillsd East or West. We -nil look hoperully Wr the
coming of, IfeClellan. Burnsidis tkoops are here. If the
new levies were ever needed it is at this time. General
Pope is still held to be equal to any emergency. The
orfppledtiiU Indomitable Bank', is still with his command,
and General McDowell has an opportunity to wire away
a bloody recollection within cannon shot of But? run-, for
he is active and evervwbegfF present.
Our retreat from Culpepper was a masterly thing, and

HuaqtunwM, Am w Tisc.mu, August gg. 1809.
After many vessttou. delays, canssd br the we which
thesrmy is makingef the railroad, I arrived here on last
Wednesday* The country is a line, open see, with gentle

was bappfly ohoeeo,and carries victory-en lbs very foe I
of It; so that 1 am not at all astonished at the Impatience
exhibited by ourfeaya, wbo are really "itching for a fight."
I aaw one individual on the field absolutely yawning
with impatience, to which he gave veat at last in the fol
lowing strain:?><?! wish tho damned rebals would come
en now. I'm afeerd Jackson got cold last night, or may
be the sun-todoo strong for his eyas;" -and much more in
the same strain. Thero. has boon some sharp skirmish
ing and cannonading during the last two days, but noth
tag of a very decisive character. The-enemy Is afraid to
attadc us In .forco, and we occupy * position which it
[ would be imprudent to abandon for a raw days All unne
osssary baggage* having been aent to tho war, we are now
unencumbered, and in excellent fighting trim. On last
Wednesday an incident occurrod which was somewhat
eiagiiiar. ttud gave a slight advantage to tho rebeie. A
party ef flrtacn of our cavalry had been out scouring the
country, and nutitaving found a rebel during thoir morn
lug's ride, resolved to Uko break last. Thoy accordingly
alighted, and, having had a sharp ride, the* unsaddled
their bones, so that the aaimais might be refreshed when
next they mounted Ahem.
Their faaoied security and repose were of short dura
tion, nowerer: for * osroely had they fairly set about pre
panug breakfast when a troop of rebol cavalry peuncad
on them as suddenly that they were captured before
thoy could otter any effectual resistance. While the
sobols were securing their prisoners, the horses which

of at full speed without eaddlos or riders, and, living ar
riuod wifely is camp,created quite a esMdUOA, which
saoe rise to many aurmiges as to what had become of the
rider a.
,Vltr no.ii It an hour ?'iad elapsed, io which pssaible
nud impossible speculations ware indulged, a aqwul of
lieoaral Buiord'e cavalry weut out to search the vtur
roiir.djng country. They did uot proceed far when U-oy
enc?atorod a body *f rebel cavalry under Genual
Stuart On there they charged with each Impetuosity

lured, emoiig whom waa an exquisitely dtamad major,
who, frvm the rtyle of hie drear, wn* suppuwed by our
mon to lus the priucip.il person in command, end who.
Accordingly, war puretted with ibo utmost vigor and de
termination. Uor men were much Jbapjioluted on find

the 'tag In the fable, war left to bewail hU fate This
Top in this race raved the general, rod lie may have the

Later in the day another attempt vu made by the
enetur to occupy the hit hat-.k of tho river at tblr point
They cr me for wttrJ cautiously through a belt of woe da,
the o|mu livid in front of w hich waa held by a part of
Rfckelts' divialon. B"tli parti"8 commenced firing, and,
aa ilia r* bol igf'tiee w 18 either more favorable ihtu
.ours, a icigued rctruM waa ordered. ThM bait tho de
eired <'tfect: the rebels dished forward with n rhout of
triumph. It wns aocu t uccoeded by dtr nay; Tor no sooner
wore they completely out of ibe woods than our men
were meed about and peuring a deadly volley Into litem,
which emptied m my saddles. Wc followed up our auc
ceM with u splendid charge.
The rebels now turned and fled, pursued by our caval
ry, who completely routed them across tint 1 lappa ban
nock. We captured about thirty head of cattle which
the enemy was forced to loavo behind him. Our troot*
are now encamped on Ibe other side?a part of Bu.ord's
cavalry aud R.ckotis division. At this point we have
poeseeslou of the railroad bridge a*roes this Rajyahan
nock.
The rebels nest attacked our centre, a few mUoa high
er up. Thoy comae n<-.'d shelling at aa sarly hour en th e
list, and continued until abcut'ona o'clock Atone time
they attempted to erms the river, but weiu drive.i back
with contulertbli' loea. We h>ok nine prisoner* nt this
point, who wore tho most oddly and wrsii bo lly drsaaed
soldiers we ever ca?t our eye# on. Two of these utiraet d

higher up It ?m discovered that the ?mj hud, daring
the night, erected e bridge oyer Um river.
At this point the most brilliant end eueceaaful affair ot
the day la reported to here oocurred. In the vicinity of
ihla bridge was one of Uenerml Bigel's baUeriee, en which
the rebela opend a brisk lire, to which, for a time, oar
battery replied with epirit. In a little while our fire
slackened and than ceased, the battery having been ap
parently silacced or withdrawn. Three rebel regiments
now ruabeJ across lbs bridge, and Sigel offered no oppo
tttHw
Everything seams favorable; bat alas! the scene soon
changes. No sooner have they eroOMd than Sigel opens
bis bet lory on the bridge. The fourth shot completely
demolishes it, and at the same time a deadly fire of mus
ketry assails the rebels in rront. Their retreat is cat aft
No hops Is left. A few shots from our battery, s charge,

The enemy having failed la this, now hurl forward their
forces%iih impetuosity, and strive to outflank Sigel by
crossing at French's ford; but General Pope orders up
Hanks and Reno to the aid of Sigel, and the enemy Is
again repulsed, and moves higher up the river. How the
seat attempt of the enemy succeeded I have not yet
teemed.
Finding that the progress of the.rebels was Still north
ward, sad that they weld be llkoiy to make a desperate
attempt to ereae the North Pork, where the road leads
to Warrantor), I took passage m the train for Alexandria
to go up the rood, and be nearer the expected scene of
aetloe. Night had just net in. when we arrived at Cat
lett's station, and the tram was swilohed off to permit
the down train to pans; scarcely was this accomplished
when picket firing wan heard in the mar of tbu encamp
meat, which, at this point, protected a supply lain and,
some settle. A territle uproar now oomui?nr?d, which
owing to the darkness, wo could not fairly comproheud.
In in instant a territle fight at close quarters commenced,
the oom baton is be leg as close aa a mob in a street row.
Some one in command gave the word "Firs the train,"
or "Fire at tbo tram, at which the engineer end ono of
