Military. --Four companies of the First Regiment of Virginia Volunteers were at Fairfax Court-House on Monday evening, besides the Warrenton Rifles and five Cavalry Companies, viz.; Ball's, Chesterfield corps; Wickham's, (Hanover,) Prince William, Rappahannock and Black Horse Cavalry, of Fauquier. It was thought probable that Col. Maxcy Gregg's South Carolinians would take the place of the Richmond companies, and permit them to rejoin their Regiment at Manassas Junction.
but the enemy scattered after the second Neither the infantry nor cavalry fired a shot. Our troops burnt the cars and captured a considerable quantity of carpenter's tools, blankets, and other baggage, together with about 20 muskets and a number of pistols.--Mr. Hancock brings with him as trophies a U. S. soldier's cap, a havelock thoroughly saturated with blood, and a bayonet. The fire of our artillerists was most effective. One man was found with his hand shot completely off, another with his arm shot off a the shoulder, and other ghastly object proved the destructive effect of the shots. It is thought by some that one of the balls broke the couplings of the locomotive; at all events, the engine was taken a way from the scene of action with all possible speed. After the engagement, Col. Gregg retired with his command to Fairfax C. H. Mr. Hancock left there at 3 o'clock yesterday morning. He requests us to state that all of Capt. Ball's command were in good health.
