Our Troops Hold the New Line.
October .--The 5th and 9th Corps advanced
tbeir lines yesterday a half-mile, driving the
enemy's s'imikhers into their breastworks.
The movement wasfortbo purpose of feeling
their strength, and to determine whether t'ua
part of the line had been weakened so as to
strengthen their forces elsewhere. Our forces
told the ground guiued, bat as yet have tnado no
attack vn the main line.
A few prisoners were taken dcring the advance.
Tbeir statements are merely a repetition of
almost- all the others, vl.., hard times, great
despondency among the troops, tc.
Ticket Bring was kept or all last night. The
prisoners r-a they are ninch opposed to this bar-barons-
practiea, and only indulgo in it on the
positive orders of their officers, but that they
generally fire too high to have any effect.
Their officers believe that thi practice prevenu
many dencrtions, which is trim. Our mortar
firing is suid to be very accurate, scuvcly a day
parsing in which a number of the enemy are not
killed and wounded by shells bunting in their
WAsmNOTew, October 10. As tho mail-boat
was 'euving City Point yesterday morning at 10

The boat brought twenty prisoners to Fortress

Saltimoub, October 10. Great excitement
now prevails regarding our election, which take
place on Wednesday next. The UUllculty exists
chiefly in reference to the voting on the ratitiaa
tkin of the new State Constitution. Reverdy
Johnson, in bli published opinion to-day, baldly
dCDh s the legality aed constitutionality f the
new Constitution, and declare the oath it pre
scribes to voters is totally invalid, abortive, and
null and void.
lie therefore advises a'.l persons to tuke tho
oatb, if they so desire, and vote against the Con
Btlttitioo, as it cannot be perjury or a moral
wrong, because the oa h it;lf being without au
thority, cannot be binding. Thomas Alexuudor,
professed Union lawyer, also holds the pre
sort Ud oatb to be unconstitutional and of no
effect, hut does not advine aay one to lake it iu
any way.
Wm. Trice, Esq., United Fu:le District AtUr
ney, thinks the oath legal, whilst William
Schley, an able lawyer, and a McCIeilau man,
diUers from him. Governor Bradford holJs to
its constitutionali:y, and require; the judges to
awear every voter, else he will cousider the bal
lots given without the oath worthless, and dui
caidthem. There iu a warm tuutrovur.-y prc
railing, acd trouble scims to bo brewing.
The judges, however, have agreed to swe ir
every voter, and reject aU who do not take the
osth on the (uestiou. I imagine
many Union people will votu against it, bit nat
enough to render certain lis delev.. There will,
no doubt, be trvnblo upou lvgal itud Constitu
tlonal o.aestions, iavolving iu validity, after the
lection. The whole thing is budly mixed up aud
forutbddowB trouble.

Tho enemy captured the small garrisons at

Lieuti Dalit-General U. S. Grant: I have tiio
bon( r lo report my command uc this point to
night. 1 commenced running link from Fort
Republic, Mount Cruwford, 13i idyoivatcr, and
Harrisonburg, yesterday morning.
Tho grain and forage infioiiiof these points
bad ptevlously been destroyed. Ill m:icing bick
to tlds point the whole country, from tuo Illue
Ridge to the Nortli Mountain, has been made
untenable for a Rebel army. I Imvo destroyed
over two thousand barns, tided with wlisal, hay,
nnd farming implements; ovor seventy mills,
tilled with flour and wheat; have driven in front
of the army over 400 bead of stock; and have
killed and issued to the troops niore than 3000
This destruction embraces tbo Lnray valley
and Little Fort valley, at well as the main valley.
A large number ot horses have been obtained, a
proper estimate of which I cannot make.
Lieutenant John R. Meigs, my engineer ollloer,
was murdered beyond Harrisonburg, near Day
ton. For this atrocity ull the houses within au
area of five miles w ere burned.
S.nce I came info tbe valley from Harper's
Ferry, up to Harrisonburg, every train, every
small party, and every straggler has been bush
whacked by the people, many of whom have pro
tection papers from commanders who have been
hitherto in that valley.
Tbe peoplo here are gettiug Mck of tho war.
Heretofore they have bad no reason to complain,
because tbey have been living iu great ubun
dance. I have not been followed by the enemy
up to this point, with tbe exception of a small
force of Rebel cavalry that have shown theru
lelves some distance behind my rearguard to-day.
A party or 100 of the Hth Ohio Cavalry, which
I bad stationed ut the bridge over tho meuth of
the Shenandoah, near Mount Jackson, was
attacked by McNeil with 17 men while they ere
asleep, and the whole party dispersed or cap
tured. I think that they will turn up.
I learn that fifty of them had reached Winches
ter. Mi Neil w as mortally wounded and fell
into our bunds.
This was fortunate, as he was the most during
nd. dangerous of all tbe buslawacLera iu this
section of the country.
