From the Wed., Sep. 30, 1863 issue

—The accounts which reach us from the Rapidan leave little doubt that the enemy's force in that quarter has been greatly reduced in the past few days by the withdrawal of troops for their army in the Southwest, in consequence of which their forces under Gen. Meade are falling back.

From passengers who came down yesterday afternoon by the Central train we are assured that the army of Gen. Lee was never in better condition, and the spirits of the men, under the influence of the encouraging news of the victory in Northern Georgia, was never more buoyant. They long for an opportunity to again measure strength with the invader.
