Nothing new to-night except bushwhackers captured 6 of our horses and wounded 3 men to-day. Teams were out on river road south of town after hay. But to offset that, Captain Dyche’s met party of secesh near mouth of Little Cacapon and captured 4 horses, saddles and bridles, one a field officer’s. Little Cacapon Bridge will be done to-morrow morning.
