Yesterday morning about 4 o’clock, a lot of McNeil’s robbers and guerrillas pounced upon a company of New York cavalry, stationed at Green Spring run, fifteen miles the other side of Cumberland, and killed three of the company, wounded several, and took the balance prisoners. No harm was done to the road.
