through and protruded out ut the back of
his head, producing instant. death.

Mmdo and Lee arc engaged lit an Inter
cstlng game-iif statefcy. Instead of fol
lowing Leo down, the- Shenandoah Vftlloy,,
Mcndn followed tho Potomac idown to Her-
lln(Md.), tluMiicrnwtf ami 'moved down
the Loudon Valley, thus pinning tho Army
of tho Potomac betwean tho enemy and
Klclimmid. On the 2 1st. the main body of
Mendu'x forces was twenty-five miles south
of llpi-lin. wlilch was nnr Mldflli'tiurir, op
posite Ashby's Gap. Wo Infer that Pleas
anion's cavalry was Hint toward Culpep
per or ns fur Miiilh us Thornton's (Jap, to
Intercept tho rebel trains or check the ene

Virginia Central Railroad. From Informa
tion reni'lved at Washington it is conjec
tured that Lee, finding lilsretreat likely to bo
Intercepted, hailed the main body of his
amy between Winchester and Miw'tinsbiirir.
and began a (.ei'leH of demonstration toward
Harper's Ferry to compel Monde to fall
back to thu Potomac and take tip a new
and less threatening lino of march. If the
rebel General should succeed In his gamu
there would bo u race along tho .Shenan
doah Valley, with thu chances in favor of
tho retreating army. Uut if Meade should
suddenly adopt thu lino of Iho Manas-as
Gap Hii'l In mil and push throuith the pases
of the IMiii) Itldgo. Leo would bo compelled
to accept battle nt a disadvantage. Such
was thu situation in Virginia on tho 21st
of July thu second anniversary of Hull
Hun. -Ate. Union.
From Saturday up to last night no tele
graphic dispatches reached ur. Wo aro in
formed that this was occasioned by tho In
terruption of Overland Telegraphic com
munication by n terrlfio whirlwind on thu
1'lulnp, which prostrated the poles nnd wire
for a distance of about twenty miles.
From thu Army of the Potomac, we have
received but little new?. It is said that
Meade has secured au advantageous position
and will force Leo to a decisive- battle. It
Is to be hoped Hits is tho case, for tho des
truction of Leu's army will bo Iho crushing
death-blow of tho Confederacy, the crown
ing glory for our war-stained veterans, and
wilt quickest bring a permanent peace.
Thu scattered bauds from thu routed rebel
armies of tho West should not be allowed to
concentrate under Lee, in Virginia, and we
trust they will not. Tho Federals nave
sustained n repulse in storming Ft. Wag
cner, on Morris Island, with a loss of 1,000
men. It Is to bo expected tint many of our
noble soldiers will bu sacrificed in storming
thosu strong positions -as many, maybe, us
fell in tho assaults on Vluktburg ; but we
nro nMired that Charleston and its forts
will soon bo ours, whatever tho cost.
Morgan himself, nnd all that remains of
his cavalry force In Ohio, have either been
killed or captured.
