General Douglas Strikes Again!
|Our Brave Volunteers assaulting a nest of Rebels!|
Our correspondent in the Northwest has just forwarded this advance dispatch from the battlefield:
"After an all day march down dusty roads followed by a dawn march through a dark gloomy forest we broke out into the bright morning sun near Hyde's Corner. The men deployed smartly into the open fields under a hot fire from the enemy who must have been alerted to our approach.
The surprise may not have been as complete as hoped for but the General has expressed every confidence in a victory that will lead the way to the suppression of this revolt. This dispatch will be followed by a full report when the battle is done and won."
We hope to have an illustrated account of the battle in time for our Saturday morning edition.
