Major General Dix, New York:
The lollowingdispatcbes from Major General
M eridan, detailing his successful operations
sine Hie last report, have just been received:
?'Harbisobbcrg, 7 30 t. M., Sept 3*9, 1~61.?
Lieut General V. S. Grant, City Point : In my
last dispatch I informed you that I pressed
Early so closely through New Market, at the
same time sending cavalry around his flank,
that h* gave up the Valley and took to the
mountains, passing through Brown's Gap.
?? kept up the pursuit to Port Republic
destroying 75 wagons and 4 caissons. I seat
Gen Torbert(who overtook me at Harrison
burg) to Staunton with Wilson's division o
cavalry and one brigade of Merritt's Torbert
entered Staunton on the 26tb, and destroyed a
large quantity of rebel Government property,
harness, saddles, small arms, bard bread,
Boor, repair shops, etc., etc. He then proceeded
to Waynesboro, destroying the iron bridge orer
the Sootb Branch of the Shenandoah, seren
miles of track, the depot buildings. Govern
ment tannery, and a large amount of leather,
fiour and stores, etc., etc., at that place. He
found the tunnel defended by inlantry, and
retired via Staunton.
"My impression is that most of the troops
Which Early had left passed through the
mountains to Cbarlottsrille.
?? Kershaw's division came to bis assistance,
and I think passed along the west base of the
mountain to Waynes-boro'.
'? I am getting from twenty-five to forty pris
oners daily, who come in from the mountains
on each side and deliver themselves up.
?? biom the most reliable accounts, Early's
army was completely broken up, and is t?is
"Kerthawbad not reached Richimnd, but
was somewhere in the vicinity of Gordons?
rille, where be received orders to rejoin Early.
??The destruction of the grain and forage
from here to Stannton will be a terrible blow to
tbem. All the grain forage, etc., in the vicini
ty of St ? union was retained for the use of Ear
ly's army All in the lower part of the ralley
was shipped to Richmond for the use of Lee's
army. The country from here to Staunton was
abundactly supplied with forage and grain
etc, etc. P. H. Shbbidan, M. G."
? HaiiBieOBECBO, Va, 7 p. m, Sept. 26,t?o!.
?Lt. Gen'l Grant ?I see it going the rounds or
tbe papers that the 19;h Corps was late in com
ing into tne battle at Winchester. I was en
tirely unconscious of this until I saw it in the
papers. Tbe statement was made by K. L.
Sbelby. I wish to say that it is incorrect, and
that this correspondent was arrested by my
order, on a previous occasion, for writing un
truthful accounts. P. H. Shbbidan,
Major General "
No report of operations in front of Rich
mond or Petersburg later than my telegram of
last night has reached the Department.

A BEI'REfc "NTATIVE RECRUIT FOR PRESI?
Yesterday, Provost Marshal General Fry
sent for Mr. Noble D. Lamer, of the Third
Ward, and announced to him that President
Lincoln desired to have a representative re
cruit put in for him (the President) and
credited to the Third Ward. Mr. Lamer at
once set o work to procure as fine and healthy
a looking recruit as he could, and to day se
cured a young man, twenty years of age?
named John Summerfield Staples, from
Strandsburg, Monroe county, Pennsylvania,
and wbo had served nine months in the lfcth
Pennsylvania militia regiment. Staples is not
so tall as the President, bot is well formed,
stout and healthy, and there is every indication
tbat he will prove an excellent soldier.
The recruit was accompanied by his father,
Mr. J. L. Staples, who gave his consent
to his son's enlistment. Tbe bounty was
paid tbe recruit, and the money was handed
over to Mr. Lamer, by General Fry.
who was authorized by the Preeident to draw
upon him for the amount. Staples was at
once sent to the barracks, and will be uni
formed, and thence will be sent to Col. Alex

RETlRNEDEP.OM THE 80CTHERN PRISONS.
Yesterday morning, Dr William J. Cragen,
surgeon o? the 2d 1). C. regiment, who was
c-ptured on the 21th of May near Fairfax sta
tion, aboat the time the regiment Was moving
back on a train of cars, arrived home after a
pretty extensive tour through several of the
Dr. Cragen was captured by Dr. Powell, of
Prince William county, Va , and Geo. Slick
man, of Fairfax county, and taken to Orange
Court Home, and from thence on the cars to
Gordonsville, where he was delivered over to
the provost marshal, Maj. Boyle, who proved
to be no lesa a personage than Dr. CorneUus
Eoyle, formerly of this city. Boyle seems to
have lost none of his llesb, and was in perfect
health, and when Dr. Cragen was ushered into
bis presence he recognized him and took him
to task for joining "the infernal Yankees."
From Gordonsville he waa sent to Lynch
bnrg, where be found Robert Shinn, of Alex
andria, a lieutenant and provost marshal, and
be was kept here two weeks. Here the pris
oner- received cooked rations consisting of one
small corn dodger and a quarter of a pound of
bacon per day.
They were taken from this place to Danville,
Va., and from thence on the ?th of J une, twelve
officers and 500 prisoners were dispatched to
Macon, G-a., where they arrived on the 19th.
Here they were placed in the stockade at the
-?'air Grounds, in which were two buildings
oniy, but the prisoners built sheds ror shelter.
This stockade covered about three acres of
ground, and in it 1,600 prisoners were confined,
and when considering all circumstances, the
health of the prisoners was generally good.
The rations were here served out every four
days, and consisted of five pints of meal, fifteen
ounces of bacon cured in ashes, six tablespoons
of worm-eaten beans, four do. rice, two tea
spoons of salt, one gill of molasses, a half gill
of vinegar, and one tablespoon of soft Bide.
They remained here until the latter part of
.1 niy. when S'oiieman was making his raid.
On the '2-tb, about 6?? prisoners were sent to
Charleston, and the Doctor left with 600 others
on the following day for Savannah, where th??y
were placed in the yard of the Marine l?os pi. al
in tints, and remained until tbe 3d of Septem
ber, receiving a pound of fresh beef per day,
with plenty of meal and rica and a little vin
egar. At that time the medical officers were
removed to Charleston.
The prisoners on the train from Macon to
Charleston were to have made an attempt ta
capture and burn the tram at Po_ot_Jigo, on
the 2.th, and had agreed that at a givtn signal
they would seize the guards, set fire to the
train, and make tor the Federal line.; but the
plan was discovered, and an increased number
of guards placed on tbe train. Some seventy
five, however, did jump from the train, but
they were mostly recaptured.
At Charleston they found a If rg? number of
prisoners, who are quartered at the Roper Hoe.

The discipline is not very eevere, aud the pris

the general treatment ii much better than at
other places. There are some Washingtonians
here, among them Lieut. Caustin, (Tom Cans

J. B. Ellis, Esq., ot this city,) wbo is suffering
with scurvy, brought on by imprisonment, but

Th? CA-Ial.?President Spates has had the
satisfaction of witnessing, as the result of his
incessant labor of three months, the arrival
last night of the fleet of boats from tue western
sections cf tbe canal. The repairs being com
pleted and the canal itself in order, did not
end the work to be accomplished before navi
gation could be resumed. There were many
obstructions, caused by the long dry spell, that
had to be removed.
The water was let In on the 17th irstant, the
banks being exceedingly dry the absorption
was so great as to keep the water below the
levels several days, and to this cause may ho
added the numerous leaks of minor impor
tance at various points The boats having
been laid np drying for so long a time, the
seams of many opened and starting weetempty,
a number snnk, and these had to be raised,
and it delayed the arrival of laden beats three

fleet of thirty having arrived, sixty more are
