WEDNESDAY MORNING. SEPTEMBER 28,1864.
THE WAR HEWS.
The report of a Confederate suecc*s in the Valley
is, we regret to say, not continued by ofhcial tli-t
- was staUd by a person who arrived
last evening by the Central train that General Early
had si fight with the enomy at Brown's gap on Mon
day and drove them six miles; but we have it on
good authority that no regular cngaa/'ttieut hs>
taken place -nothing mere than some rear-guard
■kirmishiug. The War Department, lost night at
nius o'clock, had no information of General Fatly V
movements since falling back from Poit Republic. <
About five o'clock ou Monday evening v rmall
body of the enemy's cavalry advanced and entered
■st.i tint.ai, the route thither being open and unob
structed, our forces having deflected from the route
leading to the place. Of their proceedings there we
have no report,-the latest intelligence having been
brought by iiemons. who left just as the Yankees
were coming in. Previous to this time the tele
graphic apparatus hod been removed, and tliui all
timet communication with Staunton ia cut off for
the present.
Three hundred and tfty Yankee pri.-oners, inclu
ding eight officers, cajjturcd hy General Early's,
forces within the last eight -days, reached the city
yesterday "aud were quartered at the Libby. They
wei-c brought out of Winchester just in time to es
°ape recapture, and, by way of keeping ahead of
Sheridan, were marched fifty-five miles iv twenty
hours, which may be considered an iustauce ol
pretty "tall walking."
CAPIURE OF ATHENS-BRILUANT EXPLOIT
OF GENERAL FORREST.
The folio-wing official dispatch was received yes
terday :
"Athens, Ai.a., September 24, IMtt
" Hew, Secretary of War :
"My forces captured this place this morning, with
one thousand three hundred officers and men, fifty
wagons and ambulances, five hundred horses, and
two trains of cars, loaded with cmarteniisister and
commissary stores, with v large quantity of HMP
arms and twj pieces of artillery. My troops are in
fine --piiits. My loss is five killed and twenty-five
wouuded.
" (Signed) H. B. ttMnsm as, Mnjor-General.
Athens is the county seat ot Limcr.tone county,
Alabama, one hundred and fifty-four miles north by
cast from Tuscaloosa, and about twenty northwest
fiom Iluntsville. lamestoue county borders on the
Tennessee line, end iI therefore in the rear cf Sher
man's army Forrest may be called the "übii-ui
tous." We first hear of h.m at the head ot a force
threatening Memphis, then at Mobile, and then
bundiedl cl miles away, pouiu me upon a Federal
garrison, and makiug valuable captures with slight
los- t 0 himself. Whenever he strikes a blow he
strikes hind, and the tu.my hold him in mortal
dread. Now that he i. fait ly on the wing, we shall
expect to hear of more; brilliant exploits: among the
Yankees in Noi th Alabama aud Tenucssee.
Alliens is considered by Sherman a most impor
»taftt positiou, and hence the strong gain-kin sta
tioned there. The Centntl Southern railroad, which
unites Na.-diviUe with the Memphis and Charleston
raihoad, passes, through the place, and its occupa
iuu by our forces therefore severs one ot assersaaa'a
lilies of coiituiuuicatiou.
FROM PETERSBURG.
An felflß who left tlie frotit yesterday reports
everything emmet. The city has not been shelled
since Saturday morning, and the activity of the
.-sharpshooters atom: beive.i to keep up thi exiitc
uient of the campaign. If a Yankee shows him
self above the- breastworks, or seeks to gratify his
curiosity by peeping through the embrasures, his
head is very apt to be pierced by a Confederate bul
•et, and the same remaik applies as well to our side
jas to that of the enemy. But though matters con-
It iuue comparatively quiet ou the lines, the situa
tion about Petersburg has bf no means lost its in
terest. Grant's purpose, in mussing lus troops to
the left, is known to be the occupation of the South
side railroad, aud thus to force an abandonment of
the position. This movement nay be inaugurated
any day, but its success depends very much upon
Grant's ability to out-mauieuvre a general more
• iitliful than himself at the head of an army which
has never yet kuoini defeat. It is, therefore, with
feehugs of the utmost confidence that the people
await the movement that shall be the signal for the
t erribk-trial of arms with which this bloody cam
psiigu will close.
The Yankees are still laboriously engaged upon
their canal at Dutch Gap. A deserter states that
when it is nearly finished its completion will be
exiK'dited by mining and blowing out the ends with
gunpowder. Our batteries at liowlett's again opened
upon the working party yesterday morning, and
doubtless caused them to suspend operations for a
period.
FROM GEORGIA.
Accounts from Georgia represent that General
Hood's troops are in the best of (spirits, and that the
fall campaign promises to be an active one- A
new strategic movement is on foot, from which the
best results are anticipated. The nature of this
movement will be made known in due time, but pru
dj-uce foibids any further uliun.on to it at present.—
Our 0 pii aon is that Mr. Sherman will find Atlanta
.....sit as disagreeable as he made it to our peoplo
when ho brought bi-> guns to bear upon the place a
few weeks ago. '
MUTUAL PRESS ASSOCIATION.
We invite the attention of newspaper publishers
throughout the Confederacy to the prospectus of the
'• Mutual Press Association," which appears iv our
columns this morning. The intiiction et worthless
and unreliable telegrams, at a heavy expense, was
borne until foibeurauee seated to be it virtue, when
lour of the Richmond papers withdrew from the old
association and set on toot an euterp--'*'- which pro
mises the best results. The proprietor of any jour
nal in the Confederacy may become a member of the
new association by contributing five dollars per
month in advance to the treasury, and forwarding
to the general agent all important news from his
locality. Thus, by making each member a news re
porter, nothing bgt reliable news will be forwarded,
and the publication of worthless trash avoided.

The Baltimore American ot Satatdaw evening
cotttidiis an account of General liasrlv*>i<jt|iat from
Fisher's UiU on Thursday. Tbe writer ajpra:
After much manucuvering, General Craagh's com
mand, which distinguished itself by splendid fight
ing before Winchester, furiously atleckajbtbe ene
myV right on North Mountain, carrying *JErytiling
by a magnificent aswiult, uud driving faHnemy in
the greatest contusion, 'l'ln • Sixth aaa aWneteeuth
corps tit the same time attacked thei vi imr in front,
and then whole line was broken up, ajaflfed in the
.greatest confusion. Nothing but the approach of
darkness.—-the attack having been made lab in the
afternoon—prevented the enbre*deatruetka%of Early's
army.
We captured sixteen pieces of artillery, a great
many caissous, artillery horses, and, it is pre aimed,
a large number of prisoners, though Oenerhl Sheri
dan, at the time of his di pat. h, tbd not know bow
•many. General Sheridan, who knows hew to im
prove a victory, was pushing forward after the
enemy, and had also * -nt two division.* of favairy
down the I.may Valley to intercept of
tbe enemy. Much ia expected from thl* vigorous
pursuit.
The- following in tbe latest di-patch from -Shen
dan:
Heauiiiartfbs Minnr.altoiSTOx, I
Woodstock, Va., SeptembeT Zi, MAM )
Lieutenant-General U. S. Grant, CUf Foilif:
I cannot, as yet, give any definite account of tho
results of the battio of yesterday. Our hats will bo
light. General Crook struck the left flank of the en
emy, doubled it up, advancing down .along their
lines. General Rtckett's division of the Sixth army
coins swung in and joined General CivedwOt***'*
and WheatonVs division:!, tukThg up tho some move
ment, followed by tlie whole tine, and attacking —
beautifully carrying—the works of Uk- enemy. The
rebels threw down their arms and fled in the greatest
confusion, abandoning most of their artillery.
It was dark before the battle ended. I pursued on
after the enemy during the night to tins point with
the Sixth and Ninth corps, and have stopped here to
rest the men and issue rations.
If General Torbert has pushed down the Luray
Valley, according to my din-ebons, he will achieve
great results. Ido not think that there ever was an
army so badly routed The Valley soldiers are hid
ing away and going to their homes.
I cannot give you any estimate ot prisoners. I
pushed on, regardless of everything. The number
of pieces of artillery reported captured is sixteen.
[Signed] P. II Shcbioan,
Major-General.
FHFE SPEECH i I I .< -,TH t 11 I>
The Boston Journal, a rabid Lincoln sheet, says .
At the recent Union meeting iv Funeuil Hull the
Democratic Club of this city furnished a large dele
gation, who called for cheers for McClellan witii im
punity and without molestation from the police.—
Mr. Boutwell offered to yield a portion of bis time
to any one who would attempt to refute his argu
ment from the platfonu. This is the Union idea of
froe speech At the Democratic meetiitij Saturday
evening, one of the audience in the gallcrv tailed
for cheers for the President, aud at once humirt'ds ot
those prc-tnt, aud among them, not unl.ke'lv, those
\rho shouted for MeCieilau at the previous meeting,
rushed with demoni.-.c howls to "wipe out" the in
truder. The speech oi Judge Abbot was suspended
five minutes, until the police, who exhibited re
maikable vigilance on this occasion, had'tumbled
the young man down -.tttirs in a very brutal man
ner He w;is pasised down the back stall's, receiving
cutis aud kicks from one of the vice-presidents of
the* meeting as he eros-ed the* plsttfoiiu ou the way.
This is the Democratic idea of free speech.
THE HAIU o:.- THE li It'll. ANN.
The raid by the Federal cavalry on the Rapid Ann,
in whith the railroad bridge over that sitream waa
destroyed, was performed by four hundred cavalry,
under command of Colonel Luzelle, Sixteenth Now
York cavalry, sicnt out by Geaeral Augur. The
movement was ordered in refereutse to the impend
ing battle between Sheridan and Eaijy's forces.—
The expedition w;u succecsful in the destruction of
the- railroad bridge, and also tho Liberty Mills, about
six miles nbove the Grange and Alexandria railroad,
and four thousand barrels of flour with considera
ble other property.
About lour hundred mulct were captured, but on
the return of tilts party the*y encountered a greatly
■ uperior force of Early's cavalry, with whom they
hud a smart engagement, losing twenty-three killed
and wounded find the ttsitl.-, they had captured.—
The main object of the expedition, say the Yankee
; papers, was successfully ticcumplisdicd.
