ho came down on the train from Milford Station, yesterday evening, state that we captured six pieces of artillery in the fight on Wednesday last, and that the attack was very feeble, and more easily repulsed than any made, and that the enemy fought with less spirit than they had done during any of the previous engagements for the past two weeks. The following official dispatch was received at the War Department yesterday relative to the fight on Wednesday evening: Spotsylvania C. H., May 18, 7 P. M.,via Milford, 19th. Hon. J. A. Seddon, Sec., of War: The enemy opened his batteries on a portion of Ewell's line and attempted an assault, but failed. He was easily repulsed.

From Trans-Mississippi. Mobile, May 18. --Warren Adams telegraphs to the Register from the Summit, May 17, that he can learn nothing definite from Banks. He is at Alexandria, unable to get away. On the 11th, 6,000 men landed at Mrs. Ackland's plantation, moving right back on the river to relieve Banks. The True Delta says nothing of Banks, but denies Steele's capture on the authority of members of Congress who left Little Rock on the 25th of April.

Baton Rouge has been evacuated by the enemy, and is now in possession of the Confederates. Natchez is burning, two squares gone, and the fire still raging. The engine and hose destroyed.

From North Georgia. Atlanta, May 18. --The Superintendent of the Associated Press returned from the front this morning. He visited the army to arrange a renewal of the daily press reports. Our lines are continually changed to meet the developments of the enemy in front and the recent flank movements there. The Yankee force operating against Gen. Johnston has been underestimated. It is now well ascertained to be over one hundred thousand. Flank movements in force on both wings are going on at the same time--one by Lafayette, arriving at Resaca, and one by Spring Place and the old Federal road to East Tennessee, arriving at Cartersville. Gen. Johnston has foiled every attempt to flank him, and embraced every opportunity to punish the enemy. The respective casualties to last night were: Ours, about 2,500; the Yankees, 12,000 to 15,000. Yesterday afternoon sharp skirmishing was going on at 4 o'clock, three miles above Adairsville. The Yankees were sev
