Tuesday, June 10th
A dismal rainy day. We heard yesterday from Winchester that Jackson was advancing, largely reinforced, towards that place. Expect him daily. It seems very certain, too, that McClellan has been defeated at Richmond. Beauregard has evacuated Corinth, suppose on account of the cutting off of supplies. The enemy acknowledge his retreat was the most masterly ever effected in war. They posted sentries of straw outside the town. On the advance of the enemy they fired at these sentries half a day, no shots being returned. They advanced and found most of the army had been gone for a week, carrying everything except one house[?] of bacon.
