Tuesday, Sept. 16, 1862

William went to Athens and will probably spend a week in Meigs Co.  William D. M'Clure called this afternoon just from Parkersburg.  It is apprehended that the rebels may make a move in that direction and upon Ohio.  He wants George Cutter to come with his gun and stand guard at the ford.  A. S. Bailey came here this evening and said all the fords must be watched.  He recalled George from M'Clure's and set him, and John and six or seven others from Hocking, to watch at the foot of the island, a guard being placed also at the head of the island.  M'Clellan reports a victory at the Heights near Middletown, Md., on the 14th.  God be thanked.
