 +<​p>​Captain Beardsley. Sixth New York Cavalry, who is posted here, states that John S. Doll, proprietor of the Eutaw House. Baltimore, passed through this place on his way from Frederick to Baltimore, at 1 o'​clock last night. He (Doll) states that the main force of the enemy left Frederick yesterday morning for Harrisburg, and that at 1 o'​clock yesterday but one division was left at Frederick and that it was preparing to march. The entire numbers 160,000. Jackson has the advance. He met Lee's and Stuart'​s cavalry at Newmarket, about 1000 men. He also met a squadron about one mile this side of Newmarket, returning to that place. From information obtained, it is believed that this squadron had been to Hood's Mills, two miles from here, on the railroad. We have now a picket at Hood's Mills, nod one company of Sixth New York has gone this morning to Ridgeville by this pike. Nothing has been heard of the enemy here this side of Newmarket since yesterday. Captain Beardsley deems the information of Mr. Doll reliable. He visited Frederick to attend to his family, and was detained at Frederick several days. The railroad bridge over the Monocacy is destroyed. The enemy took the road up the Cumberland Valley.</​p>​
