Rumors from the Valley are plentiful, but a»ost of
ihem are of an uiii.li.ibU character It Wfts re
ported yesterday that General Early whippy Uie
oncmy on Tuesday at Wcycr's cave, but of tlai-therc
is no confirmation. From all we can learn, j* heavy
skirmish took plain: on Monday at Brown's: gap
since which time there has been no fl,;htii»%. In
thi. affair the euemy Eccm to have made tSt at
tack, and were repulsed. The object ut the enemy
was, doubtless, to engage Rally's attention aWhile
their cavalry occupied Staunton and went oawriiii<j
iv various direction* They entered Stauntorv*k» we
have before stated, at five o'clock on Mon.h# uve
iling, iv force variously estimated at fiom rt\*f hun
dred to five thousand meu. We heard notiiiag fur
ther from them until yesterday morning, when, be
tween eight and nine o'clock, a body of cav
alry advanced upon Waynesboro', ou" the
Central railroad, twelve miles this side of Stapiton.
Here they destroyed a splendid iron budge, the
best on the road, two hundred and thirty feet in
length, and built in the most substantial icaliper.—
They also burnt the depot, eugmif-houses, wood
sheds, and in fact, (according to the best iuft*rnia"
•lvii at hand,) destroyed all the railroad
at the station. Waynesboro' is at the western foot
of the Blue Ridge, on the South river. We have no
account of the enemy's subsequent operations,
although it is reported that a party of cavalry had
gone iv tho direction of Lexington. Between
Waynesboro' and Staunton, with the exception of
the iron structure just mentioned, the only railroad
bridges are of wood and trestle-work, averaging,
perhaps, twenty feet in length. These have proba
bly been destroyed. A report reached us last night
that the Yankees were advancing towards the Blue
Ridge tunnel, but this lacks confirmation.
Au impression prevails in some .quarters thet the
enemy contemplate a raid upon Charlottesville.—
To accomplish this, however, they must first pass
through Brown's gap, winch we are confident of our
ability to hold. Meauwhile, although we have no
positive iiifoimatiou as to General Early's present
position, there is a report, believed to be authentic,
that he has started iv pursuit of the enemy, and it
is hoped he will be able to punish them sufficiently
to check their destructive operations. We arc as
sured by a gentleman from Slauutouthat there isu 0
truth in the rumor of the demoralization of our
army in the Valley. The men were never in better
3 pirits, and only await their general'a , ~.,i...ui.l to
go-forward aud meet the foe.
Parties who arrived last evening from Me
dium's river inform ns that all the inhabitants of
Staunton and vicinity, who could do aj, tied on the
approach ol the Yankees. It is represented that
the road between Staunton and Charlottesville i"
lined with wagon*, honesj cattle and negroes, their
owners all seeking a place of safety; the whole pre
senting, us they niuVe along, the appearance of an
immense caravan These unloitunatc people, thus
driven from then homes, will douUt;S? locate tem
porarily in some of the upper counties until '.uch
time a;, the depatture ot the Yankees { under com
pulsion, we hope,; shall leave them free to return.
As a ineature ol pruduice, the public stores at Mc
thum'rt river were ycsteiday removed. Should th.
enemy happen to udvaueu in that diiecliuii, they
will find but little to gialify then thi it Cm plunder.
Everything of value belonging to the Government
at Staunton had beeu removed previous to the occu
pation of the town by tltc Yankees, and the sick
and Wounded were carried to Lynchburg.
Wo add the following to our list of casualties in
the Valley . Captain J. Livingston Massie, of the
Eluvanna artillery, killed; Sergeant-Major Wil
liam at. Abcli, oi Charlottesville, acting adjutant
of the Fifth Virginia cavalry, killed j Majov J. M

Since our last report no movements oi importance
have transpired on the lines in front of Petersburg.
Save the occasional discharge oi a musket, and, at
long intervals, the boom of a cannon, everything
continued quiet yesterday. On our right, where, if
anywhere, a tight has been considered imminent
for several days past, the enemy show no present
disposition to make any movement, and the couse
qutnee is, that our brave boys ill the trenches have
nothing to do but keep a sharp lookout aud hold
theuiselve.-. ready for action at a moment's warning
There is no doubt but that Grant is receiving rein

eight or ten days, while steamers crowded with
troop- are continually arriving at City Point.
The Yankees on the Weldon railroad continue to
destroy private property, though, to far as we can
spe, they have no object in view except the gratifica
tion of that bpuit of malevolence which ha s charac
terised their proceedings throughout tlic war. It
will be recollected that wj mentioned the burning of
the Davis house some two or three weeks ago, an j
we now learn that they have burnt the houses on
the Wells place, miinedicUely opposite. Iv the
woodo on the Davis place, ueai the railroad, the
enemy have been bus.ly engaged felling trees for
several days feat, and it is thought th-'V Mt pre.
paring lor the erection of a battery there.
It is reported that on Tuesday the Yankee pickets
udonned ours, m language more emphatic than
elegant, that '■ Eoirest was playing with Sher

Though everything continues comparatively quiet
in front of Petersburg, the storm ot war may, any
day, break out afresh.. The present lull iv events
means that the enemy are making preparations for
a desperate movement, and we doubt not our au
thorities are as actively engagod in preparing to meet
it and counteract its effects.
Last night the euemy opened on our right, ia
trout of Petersburg, with musketry, and tho firing
gradually progressed towards the left, where mor
tars aud artillery were used. Piling still going on
at tune o'clock.
Ou the 22d ol September, an Alabama paper held
the foffowiug language iv regard to the movements
of Forrest: " There coutinuos to be much specula
tion as to the future movements of this favorite
cavalry clucft-iii. We can only say his present pur
poses are important, and will bear a more intimate
connection with the progress of the campaign vi
this section thau heretofore "
Since that period Forrest has made a brilliant com
iiatmcemeut by capturing the garrison at Athena, aud
is in a position to give Sherman uiuiatc trouble by
operating in his rear and destroying his lines of com
munication. The people expect much from this
brave commander, and we veuturo to predict thut
they will not bo diwippointed. It is stoted that For

they were put on board rati darted tor Northern

the ground. When they got to NaahvubVlMt
Thursday night, they were ordered back by General
Sherman lor exchange, and arrived at Atlanta on
Tuesday, and immediately came down to Bough *n_-
Ready, as stated above.
From Nashville to Atlanta the railroad is in fine
running order. General Wheeler nourished a great
deal, but actually did little damage. So vast were
the preparations of the enemy for rebuilding bridge-*
and relaying track, and ho great were the guards
and detail* along the lines, that as fast as one sec
tion of the road was torn up it was immediately re
paired. The enemy have new cross-ties and new
bridge timbers in immense pilea all along the track,
and engines ad injhtilum.
Chattanooga and Dalton are garrisoned by three
brigades- of negroes. The street* of the former city,
erected by Southern industry and walked by South
ern chivalry and beauty, are now petroled by our
former slaves, to whom all white men axe forced to
exhibit passes; and if he tails t0.«..*-« tatth, he is
marched olf to the guard-hou*e, and tils Case exam
ined and his punishment adjusted by the negro !
The negroes scrupulously exact the military sanita
tion of all passing their posts.
They have barracks there in which all ("oufederate
and Eederal deserters, "bounty jumpers" and mili
tary criminals are confined together und constantly
watched over by negroes. The Yankees seem not to
have any respect fur deserters from our army. The
"bounty jumper" is a man who enlists, receives his
bounty money, deserts, goes to another point, re
peats the operation, and so on until ho is appre
hended .
Atlanta is described as one vast military bee-hive.
Sherman's soldiers throng every street aud are
crowded into every house. The most active work
prevails on the fortifications; and it the enemy re
main there long, it will be the strongest fortified city
on the continent. The streets are swept perfectly
clean, and everything kept in an exct-Ueut sanitary
condition. Several hundred frame houses have been
torn to pieces, and their timbers constructed into
barracks for troops outside of town. Prisoners re
port also that they saw an immense pile of railroad
iron in the city—"enough," they ssid, "to build a
new line to Nashville." I presume that they were
deceived about its extent, and what they saw was
rails takcu from our owu roads about the city,
Iv ielation to Sherman's men whose time were
out, going home, they say that they met a great
many trains of them many of them were without
arms, and many Were not. They were not able to
learn whether any that they saw were going to Vir
ginia, or to reinforce any other point They heard
nothiug of the whereabouts of Forrest and Wheeler,
but as they saw no Eederal cavalry along the entire
road, it is presumed that their force ran along the
Tenne.v.ee river.
The Yankees are organising what they call the
"Fust Georgia Regiment" at Atlanta trom de
serters from our army. They otfer fourteen hundred
dollars bounty and a new suit of the hated blue. —
Emissaries couuuinirlcd freely in the barracks with
our men ana ottered the oath of allegiance. When
the i. ■!! was called for tii<an to take their departure,
all who wished to take the oath were requested tv
pass to the left and the balauce to Ihe right. lam
soiry to inform you that a good many went tv the
left, and uniting them were several subaltern otheerb
of the line." They passed out to infamy aud shame
amidst the cuiv-.es of their comrades, aud have ex
changed honor either for a life in the ranks ot those
they have beeu lighting, or a life of infamous ea.se
iilid shame.
The result ol Sherman's proposition tor a " peace
conference" with Governor Brown ia given ia the
Macon CemfiuJerate, which says j
He scut mi iuvitation to Governor Brown and
other prominent gentlemen to coma up and talk the
matter over with him, and see if some scheme could
not be devised to withdraw Georgia from the war
and save -her people from further suffering. He
would like, if Ocycmor Brown de- tied it, that the
latter should ride over the State road to Chatta
nooga, "tee the condition of his people in the real - ,
and realize the stroug claims upon his sympathy it
presented." The reply ot_Governor Brown, we un
derstand, was very much to this txh . t , "Tell General
Sherman that I understand him to be only a general
of one of the Eederal armies, while 1 am merely a
governor of one at the Confederate States I dou't
see ho*' wo can negotiate ; or, if We should under
take it, how our negotiations can lead to any practi
cal results."
President Davis made a speech at Augusta, Geor
gia ou the :.i.i iv passing through that _!&<>.' lie
said t hat
The enemy must be driven from the soil of Geor
giu, and that the meu of Georgia must aid iv the
great work. They must leave, for a while, their
wives and children, and cast their gold to the winds,
and help to drive back Ihe insolent foe from their
borders We are struggling, hiiid th.; President, to
perserve the heritage bequeathed to us by our fath
ers—the right to govern ourselves—the right to be
freemen ; if we succeed, we shall be happy and pros
perous , but if our Confederacy should tail, consti
tutional goreruinent, political freedom, will fall
with it, end we shall lie subject to such outrages as
that lately cjiaeU-d at Atlanta m the banishment of
women and children from their homes—au outrage
which would surely bring down upon the perpetra

the people, therefore, to he firm aud faithful, and all
Would yet be well.
Iv another address at Macou to the people, made
by President Davis, among other things, he said :
I know the deep disgrace felt by Georgia at our
army falling back from Dalton to the interior of the
State; but I was not et those who considered At
lanta lost when our army crossed the Chattahoochee

must be the defeat of our enemy. It has been said
that I had abandoned Georgia to her fate Kbame
upon such a falsehood. Where could the author
have beeu when Walker, when Polk,and when Gen
eral Stephen D. Lee were sent to ber assistants I —
Miserable nun. The man who uttered this was a
scoundrel. He was not a man to save our country.
If I knew that a general did not possess the
qualities to command, would I not b« wrong if he
was not removed I Why, when our army "was fall
ing back from Northern Georgia, I even heard that
1 had -cut Bragg with pontoons to cross into Cuba
But we must be charitable
Your prisoners are kept as a sort of Yankee capi
tal, I have heard that one of their generals suid
that their exchange would deteat Sherman. I have
tried every means, conceded everything to effect an
exchange, to no purpose. Butler, the Beast, with
whom no commissioner of exchange would hold in
tercom.se, had published in the uewspapers that, U
we would consent to the exchange of negroes, all dif
ficulties might be removed. This is reported as an
effort of his to get himself whitewashed by holding
intercourse with gentlemen. If an exchauge could
be effected, 1 don't know but that I might be in
duced to recognize Butler. But in the future every
effoit will be given as far as possible to effect the
end. We want our soldiers in the field, and we want
the sick und wounded to return home.
It is not proper for me to speak of the number of
men in the field. But this I wdl say : that two
thirds of our men are absent - some sick, some
wounded, but most of them absent without leavo.—
The man who repents and goes back to his com
mander, voluntarily, at once, appeals strongly to
executive clemency. But suppose he stays away
until the war is over and his comrades return home,
when every man's history will be told, where will
he shield himself' It is upon these retlcctions that I
rely to make meu return to their duty; but after con
ferring with our generals at headquarters, if there
be iuiy other remedy it shall be applied.
1 love my friends aud 1 forgive my enemies. I hare
beeu asked to send reinforcements from Virginia to
Georgia. Iv Virginia the disparity m numbers is
just as great as it is iv Georgia. Then I have beeu
asked why the army sent to the Shenandoah Valley
was not sent here ' It was because an army vi tha
enemy had penetrated the Valley to the very gates
of Lynchburg, and General Early was sent to drive
tlu in back. This be not only suecesstußy did, but,
crossing the Potomac, came welt nigh captuiing
Washington itself, and forced Grunt to send two
corps ol his aim vto protect it. This tbe enemy
denominated a raid. If so, Sherman's march iuto
Georgia is a raid. What would prevent them vow,
if Early was withdrawn, peuetrating down the Val
ley and putting a complete cordon of men mound
Richmond? 1 ouuuselled with that great and grave

Major F. P. Wirity, who wa* tMhe j
evacuation of Fort Wag iur, in the boat which was
conveying him, wounded, to the city, aud has been'
held as a prisoner ever since until the late exchange
at Chaileston, furnishes the Darlington Southerner
with the following interesting account of Yaiike c
prisons aud the treatment our prisoners receive in i
them :
Fort McHenry, near Baltimore, is not now a de- '
pot for prisoners of war, but is one of the most noted
Yankee bastiles at which citizens expiate offences, '
real or imaginary, committed against " the best gov
ernment the world has ever seen." Frisouersof war
axe collected there and sent to some regular depot as
soon as a load is obtained. I shall endeavor to give j
you a description of this place, which was once vis
ited with pride by our people and alhctiouately re- J
membered as the place where, during a certain
" pewlous night,'' our fiag floated detiautly and was
found proudly waving at returning dawn. That !
flag, theu reverenced as the banner of liberty, has
now become a badge oi despotism; aud the fort,
then so gallantly defended by fieemeu, is now a
prison-house for their chUdreu.
Within the enclosure which surrounds the fort, J
just upon the water's edge, is the provost-marshal's '
yard. Within this are two long brick house*, which '
were once used as government hor.e stable*. These '
are divided above and below into two rooms; the
upper rooms are reached by long flights of steps- ■
lv the " upper story" ot out- of these stables is the
apartment known as the " officers' room," in which I
was confined from the 11th of February until the loth n
of June My fellow prisoners were mostly officers, |
wounded and captured at Gettysburg, a majority
of these poor fellows had given a limb to their couti- J
try, aud all had beeu severely Woiiuded. In this
apartment there were buuks without any bedding, '
aud during a part of the winter the wounded were
unable to procure straw to he upon. The rations
here consisted of meat once a day, aud " hiird tack
aud coffee " twice. Occasionally lush potatoes WCM
also given to us. Compared with Fort Delaware,
the only regular d. put tot piiooners at which I was
coiiliiied, we ictred finely.
The two most interesting points at Fort McHen
ry wore the " Interior " and the " Middle Rooms."
The former were rooms within the fort, to whicii
Colliledeiiites were assigned when under iharges or
sentence, for Bjieciad punishment. When one is
consigned to the " Interior," he die:; to his compa
nions, who are aot allowed to communicate with
him. 1 have seen officers who have beeu confined
there, and «I 1 agree that it is far from being a plea
ikint place. - Frequently our men are confined in dark,
damp cells for mouths at a time, It is to these " In
teriors" that the Confederate o..vernment should
direct attention, and by Uinvly .md severe retalia
tion, rob them of their victims.
The " Middle Room," otherwise kuowu aa '• Hell,"
islhu- gitiphically and tiuthiully described by an
other. " Imagine uU the dead rabbits, plug ughes,
blood tubs, market thieves, pickpockets, wharf
rats aud murderers of the great cities of tha North,
gotten together, and the most choice selections of
this conglomeration of human iniquity selected and
placed in four brick walla with no aindows, and their
native qualities stimulated into full and free activity
by c-jpious supplies of mean whiskey, the subjects
upon which to exercise their varied taleuts utterly
hopeless for detence, with all restraints removed, ami
the approving smile of the authorities ready to re
ward their worst achievements,and you have a pic
ture ot the 'Middle Room,' known among theun-,
foituuute Confederates who have experienced its
honors as ' Hell.'"
There is still another "permanent institution"
at t'oit McHenry deserving of notice —a gallows,
which stands in the middle el the parade ground.—
Occupying v wry prominent position, it 14 among
the first tisiags whi-h attiacti the attention uf tho
stranger. My ttaoUghU often linger about this gib
bet, for I saw one of freedom's sou.-, offered there as
a sacrifice to Yankee vindictiveness. It was here
that young Leopold, of Mai ylan,!, died. He was a
member of a cavalry company commanded by Cap
tain Burke, of Virginia. Tbe home of tho Captain
was within the enemy'u lines, und ho ventured on
ouo occasion to visit liis tainily ; a neighbor, a Union
ist, discovering that he was there, gave notice to
•the enemy, who surrounded the house and mui
dered Captain Burko iv the presence of his family.
A short tiuia afterwards the Union citizen met a
sixil.ii late. At Gettysburg young Leopold was cap
tured ; as soon as it was discovered that he was from
Maryland aud a member of Burke'scompany, charges
Welo preferred against him for the murder of
the CuicoUist referred to and to* being a spy
He was convicted and sentenced to be hung —
He was incarcerated i« a daifc, damp earn in the

Fort Delaware is a regular depot for prisoners —
Here I was confined with sin hundred brother offi
cers ; we were not allowed to communicate with the
enlisted men of our armies We were told that be
tween eight and ten thousand Confederate soldiers
were confined there The enclosure in which the
officers were kept coutained about three acres ol
land; three sides of the square were made by the
buildings we occupied, and the fourth by a high
boa i J fence. Here we received twanicah. a day :at
nine o'clock, about two ounces of meat and a piece
of bread, aud at five o'clock the same. Our soldiers
receive but one piece of meat. They volunteer to
do police duty for an extra ration of bread, and I
have seen the poor fellows pick pieces of bread from
the refuse aud eat them with greediness. Ido not
intend to siy that all prisoners live on this allow
ance , If they uuv <• money or friends they can get
whatever they want, but such is the diet of those
who are oblige 1 to live on prison hire.
lv the prison at Delaware there were several po
litical prisoners confined with as; among these was
the Rev. Dr. Handy, of Portsmouth, Viraiuia, a
distinguished Presbyterian divine. He had been a
pt ls-jiu-r for near twelve months , hi* discharge was
offered whenever he took the oath, but he persisted
iv refusiug to purchase his liberty at such a price.
Tbis old, while headed man, shut up iv prison for
opiniou sake, was one of the thousand living monu
ments which I witnessed attesting the perfect free
dom enjoyed under " the best goveriuneut the world
ever saw.' Dr. Handy labored assiduously among
the officers, and was doing much good. Ilere w«
had preaching, bible class, debating societies, a' mu
soiiic lodge tor instruction, Ac. Of course, where
so many aero tot.fined, we could find ways tor
amusement aud iusti ucUou.
