The Republican of this evening has the fol

In our first edition of yesterday we cipubted
the statement that Col Dahlgren hadlitiaclied
our lines in safety. We did so because .we
knew at the time that the Richmond Sentinel,
of Saturday morning last, a copy rof which
reached Gen. Meade's camp on Sunday-even

in a skirmish at Bing and Queen Court House,
on the Mattaponas river, on Friday last.

that he had received information concerning.
the announcement in the Sentinel that Dahl-1
