July 17, 1861
MARTINSBURG, JULY 13—The 11th Indiana and the 2d Massachusetts Regiments arrived here yesterday to join General Patterson’s column.
There is no new movement here. We don’t expect an attack, and it does not seem probable at present that we shall make one.
The time of several of the three months’ regiments here will expire within two weeks.—They will go home, recruit, and then go again for the war.
Three or four newspaper correspondents are in custody here, by orders from Gen. Patterson.
