Monocacy, November 27th, 1859—7.25 P. M.

Mr. Diffey left this station at 6.45 bound East with the extra train, that took the troops to Charlestown to-day; and will run regardless of any extra train that may leave Baltimore tonight.

Harper's Ferry, November 28th, 1859—8.08 A. M.

W. P. Smith.

All is quiet here. The Wheeling troops arrived this morning on Express—seventy-six men. Will send them to Charlestown with the Cadets, that will arrive here on Mail train time this A. M. I shall go with them. I will inform you when it is likely there will be a battle, for I want you to be present.

Harper's Ferry, November 28th, 1859—10.46 A. M.

W. P. Smith.

All is quiet. Troops still arriving—twenty-eight from Wheeling on Express, and nineteen on Express West. One of the Wheeling members fell from the train at Brady's Mill. Col. Wheat left a detachment to look to him, and found him not seriously hurt. We sent all the troops to Charlestown, that came on special train, including the 75 from Wheeling— making in all about three hundred. The arrivals last night brought as volunteers Mr. C. W. Russell, our Virginia counsel, and O. Jennings Wise, son of the Governor.
