The cars arrived yesterday evening, bringing very little
news. Hindman did not capture Curtis's army, as reported.
The Federalists are at Culpeper C.H. with their headquar-
ters at Dick Patterson's. Said to be about 6000 in
number, and fortifying. There is a report that they
have left Winchester entirely; a small force there when
the last reliable information came. Gen. Robertson has
left the Valley and gone East with his whole cavalry com-
mand, except one regiment. A dozen Federal prisoners
were brought in yesterday. Very distinct cannonading
heard this morning.
