WHAT WAS TO BR DOS* PFFOKS TI'R ORAM) STRCOOUR. But to insure tb* full fruition of all these glorious ?-.io cesses muoh remained to be done; aad not the least was tbe destruction of tbe railroad indies from ltickacond through Hanover Junction and CordoBcvfile to tbe west ward. Another day's marching to tfco eastward would have placed it out of our power to effectually sever this great artery of tho coofodoracy. For this reason proba bly more tbao any other tbe arai7 was allowed to re main In position near lianovertovru, while General Wil sen's division *f cavalry was engaged In burnlugand de stroy lng the railroad, from Hcuover Junction westward. to* DRpraucTiojr of thr oor.rto>'3Tr.T.R raiiroao ? rutma attuujts 10 pwcvmr it. This work has been prosecuted cey and night, until its demolition is complete. A force of rebel cavalry was first sent around to Wilson's flank to surprise and rout him from his work. These wer* handsomely checked in the out set . and finally routed, with heavy loss. A force of In fantry was finally detached for that purpose from the l*(t flank of Lee's army; but Wright's corps had been marched within supporting distance on our right, ami stilt th* work went on. Finding themselves cheelaaated In all tteee attempts, tbe enemy abandoned tbe idea of saving tho toad , or gain ing any advantage in that quarter, and commenced con oentratlng on our c ntre andle.'t. Last night Wright's corps was withdrawn from thn vicinity of the Junction, and moved to tho left of Warren's, on the Henovertown and Coal flarbor mad, In the rear of Sberidaa's cavalry, which bad been threatened vrith an infantry attack.

That this pursuit of Hancock's wm a mere demonstra tion in the first flush of suece?*, instead of an Intention to permanently hold the ground he might thus obtain, is proven by his having orders to evacuate that entire posi tion during the night, and move bis corps from the right of the line to the extreme left. Hit march has already commenced. As I write the "jofgllng" of bis artillev wheels and (he stoidy, heavy tread or his veterau troops break the stillness of the night. Another of those successful tlank movements is going on which the rebel papers term retrests, and which your 6tlly pated or msllclouaoontem porary journalists pron.iunce no flick movements at all, but ?imply being outwitted by General f.ee. Ignorance or m dica oeuld go but little further than this; for, at the instant the writer was penning tho defamation, Lee waa hurrying hln army towards Richmond by forced marches to prevent our array from cutting blm TiT entirely.

They were, artsr all; pro* bably, only a hoavy ronr guard, composod of one or two wrpg, and were strongly Intrenched on tbe edge of a denstt wood.
