NEW YORK, March 3.
The Lynchburg Virginian publishes the following: A private letter received form Centreville last night, states that our forces had received orders to send their sick to the rear, and put themselves in marching order. By passengers who arrived in last night’s train the above report is confirmed, and they also state that the women and children were ordered to leave yesterday morning. We understand that the Yankees have succeeded in cutting another road through the woods to Fairfax.
