Tuesday, July 22, 1862

Miss Mary Nye went to Belpre this morning taking Annie with her, to stay a couple of days at Mr. Dana's.  Kate, Lizzie and little Sarah spent the day in Harmar at Mrs. Newton's.  
The rebel Morgan has retreated to Tennessee pursed by Gen. Smith.  His raid into Kentucky has only resulted in the loss of several of his guerrillas, and the stealing of some fine horses from Union men.  Gen. Pope has been issuing some stirring orders in regard to subsisting his men on the rebels, &c.  He now has command of Fremont's department in Virginia.
