A.     M. Garber, of the Chickasaw Guards, writes to his paper, the Houston

Patrol from Harperís Ferry, on the 8th, at which time there were nineteen thousand men at that post.He mentions the large numbers of wagons being brought there, and supposed they were designed for a march into Maryland and Pennsylvania.As our readers are now aware they were for use in Johnstonís evacuation.

As all the machinery has been moved from here to Fayetteville, N. C. there is nothing to guard, and for its importance as an advance post, might be burned and evacuated.
