Chattanooga. Oct. 18.?The latest news :
from Sherman's army is that there is no enemy
in sight of h?B force. Small bodies, supposed
to have been detached from Hood's army, are
hovering around our front. Hood, with the
main body of his army, is supposed to be re
treating southward. One of our army corps
was at Lafayette yesterday.
Later and Important.
Chattanooga, Oct. 19 ?Capt. March, of the
1th United States regulars, has just arrived
lrom Villanow, which point he left yesterday
He reports that Col. Minty's brigade of cavalry
tad met the enemy in force, and, after a se
vere fight, our troops charged again and routed
the rebels, capturing Gen. Young and a large
number of prisoners.
On the lith instant the same cavalry charged
Roddy's command, at Rome, with the saber,
killed and captured a number, taking all his
artillery, and scattering the remainder of the
enemy in all directions.
On the 17th our advance came upon Hood's
rear guard, and whipped it, and drove it out
of Snake Gap.
Yesterday, Gen. Sherman started in pursuit
of the rebels, who were retreating southward
via Bloomtown Valley.
The Robbery of Banks at St. Albans. Vt.
St. ALHAxsr t., Oct. 19.?The invasion of
the town took place to-day. Some twenty or
thirty.five armed desperadoes, supposed to be
in rel?el employ, from Canada made an assault
on several banks about 4 o'clock this afternoon.
The National Bank waa robbed of about
850,(iCO?mostly in bills. St. Albans Bank was
robbed of between 870,000 and 880,000, and
Franklin County Bank of a considerable
amount. Some twenty horses were also seized
by the desperadoes and carried off.
Several citizens who resisted this outrage
were deliberately shot. Two were wounded
seriously, and It is feared fatally. E. J. Mor
rison, a contractor, C. H. Huntington, a jew
eler, and several others are reported slightly
injured. The raiders threatened to bum the
town, and left in the direction of Canada. A
large party of armed citizens have gone in nor.
suit of them.
The man, named Morrison, who was shot
through the body to day, has since died.
Mosby's Black Flag?His Late Raid.
Baltimore, Oct. 19?Lieutenant Wm. M
Bunkle, formerly a Philadelphia reporter, In
forms me that Mosby is concentrating his
forces south of Leesburg. White is between
Leesbur* and the Potomac. It was his forces
that made the late depredations in Maryland.
Lieutenant Bunkle has in his possession the
celebrated black flag, the one the rebels swore
to give no quarter under. It was captured bv
one of Gen. Tyler's scouts. It has a single star
in a black ground, with the word "Winches
ter" inscribed thereon, and in lead pencil there
is written, "No quarter." Oen Tvler intends
presenting the flag to the city of Philadelphia,
and Lieut. Bunkle will deliver it to Mayor
Henry this evening. 3
Tbe town of l'oolesville was not destroyed
as reported. The rebels committed many out
rages, such as setting fire to canal boats, rob
bing people, Ac. They robbed the post offices
at Adamstown and Licksvilie, and scattered
the letters they stole along the highway.
Bishop Whittiwgham.?It is understood
that the trustees of the General Theological
Seminary (Episcopal) of New York, propose
to elect BiBhep W hittingham, of the Diocese of
Maryland, to the vacant chair of History, in
that institution. This fact, coupled with the
statement that he will probably accept the po
sition, if tendered, has caused much aneasi
nees and a general expression of regret among
the loyal portion of the Diocese. While they
feel gratified at the compliment thus paid to
that distinguished churchman, they feel that
his resignation of the Episcopate at this time
?would afford a great triumph to the disloyal
people of the Diocese who have waged such
bitter and unrelenting war on Bishop Whit,
nngham, from tl>e moment be took bis patriotic
stand in support of the Government and on
the side of thel'nion.
In the natural order of succession, the posi
on vacated by Bishop W. will be filled by a
* '"gvman whose sympathies with the rebellion
Hre 111,111,8'ahable, and in the event indicated the
power of the Episcopate will be unquestiona
bly wielded in aid of the rebellion.
e learn that earnest protests addressed to
is op y, hiitingham against his resignation of
e piscojate are being numerously signed
throughout the Diocese, and it is to be hoped
e will reconsider the purpose it he has
formed it.

my attacked our army with great Impetuosity
this morning at daylight. The attack was
made on left of Eighth Corps, and was at first
successful, they capturing some guns, prison
ers and wagons. Our line was reformed, and
heavy fighting continued through the day.
"Sheridan, reported at Winchester this morn
ins, went out to the front. The particulars
received are not official, and are not faverable*
though no seriou3 disaster could have occurred
without direct news irom Sheridan.
"Jno. I). Stevenson, Brig. Gen."
Matters remained in the doubtful state rep
resented by the foregoing telegrams, until this
morning, at half-past nine, when the following
telegram was received, unofficially reporting
the great victory won by Sheridan's army :
"Harper's Ferry, Va., Oct. 20,1861.?Hon.
Edwin M. Stanton, Secretary of War: News from
Sheridan's headquarters at midnight, to the
effect that the eremy surprised our forces yes
terday morning, driving the command In some
conlusion this side of Newton, capturing artili
lery and prisoners.
" Sheridan arrived on the field, reorganized
our forces, and drove the enemy beyond Stras
burg, capturing, It is reported, forty-three
pieces of artillery, one hundred wagons a id
ambulances, and->,000 prisoners. Rout of en
emy said to be complete. This is not official,
but I think reliable.
J. D. Stevenson, Brig. Gen."
A few minutes later the following official re
port of bis victory was received from Major
General Sheridan :
"Cedar creek, 10 p. m., Oct. 19, 1S61.?
Lieut. Gen. Grant, City Point. I have the honor
to report that my army at Cedar Creek was at
tacked this morning belore daylight; and my
left was turned and driven in confusion. In
fact, most of the line was driven in confusion,
with the loss of twenty pieces of artillery. I
hastened from Winchester, where I was on
my return from Washington, and found the
armies between Mlddletowu and Newtown,
having been driven back about four miles. I
here took the affair in hand, and quickly
united the Corps, formed a compact line of
battle just in time to repulse an attack of the
enemy, which was handsomely done at 1 p. m.
??At D j?. in., after eoTTie rhAnfft* of the cav
airy from the left to the right llank, 1 attacked
with gTeat vigor, driving and routing the ene
my, capturing, according to last report, forty
three pieces of artillery and very many pris
oners. I do not yet know the number of my
casualties, or the losses of the enemy. Wagon
trains, ambulances, and calsons In large num
ber* are in our possession. They also burned
some of their trains. Gen. Ramseur is a pris
oner in our hands, severely and perhap3 mor
tally wounded.
"I have to regret the loss of General Bid
will, killed, and Generals Wright, Grover
and Ricketts wounded ? Wright slightly
wounded. Affairs at the time looked badly,
tut, by the gallantly of our brave officers and
mea, disaster has been converted into a splen
did victory. Darkness again intervened to
shut off greater results. I now occupy Stras
burg. As soon as obtained, I will send you
further particulars.
"P. H. Sheridan. Major General."
The battle was fought on the same day (loth
of the month,) that witnessed Sheridan's victo
ry in September. What forces and their num
ber were opposed to General Sheridan, are no
yet reported to the Department, but the bold
ness, vigor, and success of the attack strongly
indicate that a heavy reinforcement had been
sent from Richmond, with the expectation of
fulfilling LonK8treet's boast to smash up Sher
idan. Longstreet was known to be in the val
ley, 3nd had assumed command of the rebel
army, and confident hopes of an overwhelming
disaster to the Union army, were boastfully ex
pressed for several days back by the rebel au
thorities in Baltimore and Washington.

Information has been received, here that
about two o'clock Wednesday morning a Rang
ot Mosby's men, visited Annandale and Falls
Church, committing some of the most devilish
deeds of cold-blooded mnrderever recorded.
At Falls Chnrch they seized a qniet, inoffen
sive man, by the name of Reed, a settler from
the North, dragged him into the woods, and
after shooting him, finished by cutting his
throat from ear to ear. A negro was shot in the
same cold-blooded manner, at the same ttme,
but the ball did not penetrate his skull, and he
escaped with life. Mr. Reed was a member of
tbe Home Guard. and the guerrillas s&id they
meant to serve every Home Guard they caught
in tbe same manner.
The guerrillas stole the horses of tbe hospi
tal at Falls Church, and committed a number
of deeds of wanton cruelty there.
At Annandale, they captured four pickets of
the 10th New York cavalry, and dragged them
to the woods, where they cut the throats of the
unfortunate men, in the same cold-blooded
style in which they murdered Mr. Reed.
They gave as an excuse for these murderous
acts that some of their gang had been badly
treated by Union troops.
Hon. Green Adams, Auditor of the Post Of
fice Department has resigned. Yesterday Mr.
Adams visited the different rooms of the De

received by the Government that several of

General Donbleday is President of the Com
misEon, but General Fessenden presides in the
absence of General Donbleday. Col. Foster is
Judge Advocat2.
Messrs. Johnson and Sntton were present,
as was their chief c'erk, Mr. Hennlss, all of
whom plead not guilty. Messrs. A. J. Little
and S. Wcod appear as conneel for the prison
Pardon lVorsley being sworn, in reply to the
interrogations of the Judge Advocate, testified:
he was a trader between this city and various
points in Loudon county, Virginia, which
points were in possession of Moseby's guerril
las; first saw Johnson in May last at his store;
went there to buy goods; asked Messrs. Johnson
<fc Sutton to fill orders for him; told them he
was going to Mosby's battalion with them; they
filled his orders for him; goods comprised all
kinds of dry goods, principally gloves, gaunt
lets, shirts, flannel and cloth known as ''Con
federate gray;" tbe orders had attached to them
tbe names of tbe parties whom they were for;
goods were packed in bundles which were
placed in boxes; he (Worsley) came to the
store of Metsrs. J. 6c S. for the goods, carrying
them away in a wagon; took them to Mosby;
settled lor the last trip last Friday.
Tbe witness was asked to name prominent
parties whose names are attached t? the orders,
and he mentioned Adjutant Blackwell, of
Mosby's staff, Capt. McGeorge, Lt Lavender,
of Mosby's battalion, and R. P. Buckner, with
whom Mosby's family are boarding; some of
the goods were lor Mrs Mosby, marked 41M.
H. B." Witness told Messrs. Johnson & Sut
ton what "M. H. B." meant.
A pile of papers was here laid before wit
ness, which he was asked to look at: said they
were bills for some of the first goods he pur
chased. Another package was laid before
him, which he stated, after examination, con
tained the orders for the last goods purchased.
Some of them were tbe original orders drawn
in Virginia; witness had conversed with all
hands at the store of Messrs. Johnson & Sutton:
usually did his trading with Henniss.
Cross-examined by Mr. Little:?Was born in
Connecticut; lived in Massachusetts when the
war broke out; had been running goods since
about the 10th of May last. Had a partner in
the beginning, his wife was now connected with
him; his wife had been in Washington with him;
his wife went with him on his first visit to the
store of Messrs. J. & S.: a Miss Fanny Nolan,
of Virginia, went with him there in June, she
purchased some things there; when he first
went there he introduced himself; showed
Messrs. Johnson & Sutton a permission from
Federal authorities to sell Iruit and vegetables
in the vicinity of Washington; he told them be
had a permit to peddle goods In the Federal
lines and that he sometimes "slipped
through" to Fairlax; told them the first
time he went there, where he wanted to take
the goods: be bad filled about ten different or
ders. be said, to make tbe story short, at tbe
time of the threatened invasion of Washington
he had a lot of goods in a warehouse in this
city; told Johnson & Sutton that he was going
to try to get bis goods "through;" they told him
to be very careful; the last purchase was set
tled for last week; every package bad on it the
names of those who ordered it; always had
two bills made out, one with the prices
doubled; the smaller amount was the price he
paid?the larger, what he represented to the
rebels as the price.
He was asked if he had connection with tbe
Government during this time. To this the
Judge Advocate objected, and the court was
cleared to settle tbe point.
After the doors were thrown open, the Court
ruled that the question was a proper one, and
that the witness must state his connection with
the Government.
The witness (Worseley) stated that he was
engaged about the 1st of April, and sent out by
the Government. Sold goods to Mosby and his
officers nnder the direction and by the knowl
edge ?f the Government, and he always in
formed the Government of what he did. Wit
ness' wife was also 4n the same business, and
he was compensated by the Government.
Witness had made money selling goods,
but had not divided proceeds with the
Government. Witness gave bonds to
the Government and they took his Honor for
the faithful performance ot his duUee. There
were other parties with witness tasides his
wife when he went to Johnson & Sutton's.
Lt. Stone was with witness upon one occa
sion lohnson ft Sutton never used bill heads
whek ^y i?2de o?it bills for witness, bat they
doubled Uie amount of price of goods pur
chased, and signed their names to the receipts.
There w ere other men with witness at the store,
but they did not know his business. Witness was
net recommended to the Government for a de
tective, but be offered himself and was em
ployed by Gen. Angur. The object of the Gov
ernment in employing witness was to find oat
blockade runners, and obtain infbrmatisa in
the Valley from Meeby and others. Witness
bad no knowledge of what would be done
with tbe funds he obtained from tbe rebels
for roods. Part of witness's business was
to find ont tbe whereabouts of Itoafey dad
give such information to General A agar as
would lead to Mosby's capture. Witness met
Fannie Nolan at MWdlabnry, and brought her
to this city, and took her to Johnson * Sutton's
stove. Mr Johnson never told witness that
there were any other persons baying goods of
him wars Ntgspsd ia tbe safes business ?

day, and brought away the books and paper*
found in the desk.
Several large acconnt books and a number of
papers were here shown to the witness, and
he identified them' as the ones he had taken
lrom the store.
Mr. Worseley recalled ?Witness went into
the cellar of Johnson ic Sutton's store e.fter tlie
arrests, and tound grey cloth there, such as
was usually furnished to witness It is Ml
unusual thing to And this kind of ?-*y in th?
city. It was Confederate grey, and witness
was ot the opinion it could not t? found in any
other store in the city. Witness inquired at
Perry's if they bad any, and was t..id that thev
had none. Witness has been at Perry's
often to bny poods for the Confederates,
but they would not double his bills
and witness would not take the goods The
Perry's told witness they had a regular system
of selling goods, and that they would not
double the amounts for any man. The Parry's
knew what be wanted with the good*. Onona
occasion Johnson told a clerk when he was
boxing up some goods to hurry up if he wanted
any greenbacks, as he bad seen that Mosby hnd
captured a paymaster.
