Federal victory(!) Expecting a resumption of hostilities on Sunday, every preparation was made therefor, and at an early hour, the enemy commenced to advance down York River Railroad; but General Mahone's brigade (Huger's command) met them and gallantly drove them backwards again, although manfully attempting to regain the position lost the evening before. We are sorry to add that in this engagement the Third Alabama lost Col. Lomax and Adjt. Johnson, while the Twelfth Virginia, and Richmond Grays particularly, lost many valuable men. The Ninth Virginia did not act so well. The enemy were particularly active with artillery, and accurately shelled the ambulance train on the York River road. Operations along the line yesterday were not of a very important nature, the enemy being intent upon preparing for their main attack today, Monday. We are sorry to say that our officers suffered severely in the two days operations, and among others we would add Gen. Garland had three horses

Formation of a New Volunteer Company. --The feeling of the people, the bone and sinew, is shown in nothing more plainly than in the eagerness with which they rush to the standard of their State, to uphold her rights in this contest. They offer up themselves, and, if need be, will shed their blood as an earnest of their devotion. As a proof of this assertion, we chronicle the fact that a second company of Richmond Grays have been raised here, to the number of 70 men, in 24 hours.--If this is not responding with alacrity to the call of duty, we confess an ignorance of the meaning of the word. The following officers have been chosen: Captain, Wm. Ira Smith; First Lieutenant, John H. Greanor; Second Lieutenant, Richard M. Crawford; Third Lieutenant, James T. Vaughan. Wm. Greanor, Esq., gave $500 towards equipping and uniforming the company, who will soon report for active service. Mr. Greanor is a native of Baltimore, and one of the "Old Defenders" of that city against the Britis
Arrival of military. --The following volunteer companies arrived in Richmond yesterday, about 2 o'clock, via the Danville Railroad: Wise Fencibles, Montgomery county, Capt. R. C. Trigg, 83 men; Company "A," Pittsylvania county, 101st Regiment, Capt. Wm. H. Werth, 84 men; Pulaski Guard, Capt. Jas. A. Walker, 83 men; Prospect Grays, Prince Edward county, 63 men, Capt. E. G. Wall, and Farmville Guards, Capt. R. A. Booker, 96 men. All of the above companies presented unmistakable evidence of being composed of the right material. The Farmville Guards would do honor to a bigger place than the one they hail from.
ception in Maryland, where each man claimed to have scores of intimate personal friends. "If, in the performance of duty," they added, "we shall be compelled to meet our old friends of the Baltimore City Guard and the Richmond Grays in hostile array, we shall return their first fire by presenting arms; but on the second fire we shall be compelled to defend ourselves. " The same says:"--It is reported that the Seventh should be brought face to face with the Baltimore City Guard or Richmond Grays, they will not fire upon them, but give cheers for the manner in which they were entertained when they last met them.& The Sun also has the following in reference to the Northern troops at Perryville: On Monday night, while one of the officers was going the rounds of the camp, he was accosted by a sentinel, who demanded the password, which the officer gave. The sentinel, who either misunderstood him or had forgotten the password, presented his bayonet at the officer. The off
teers, by appointment of Col. P. T. Moore, and who has, since the inauguration of the encampment at the Central Fair Grounds, been officiating with great acceptability as such, was yesterday unanimously chosen Captain of the 2d Company (H) of Richmond Grays, recently formed in this city — a post which he accepted at the earnest solicitation of its members, and whose duties he immediately proceeded to administer with the same earnest fidelity that marked his conduct in another sphere of usefulness. Company H, No. 2, already, to a very great extent, efficiently uniformed and armed, will soon proffer their services to Governor Letcher. The two companies of Grays comprise within their ranks enough men to form a battalion, which they will, no doubt, proceed to do after the war is ended. The material of which they are respectively composed is of the best sort, and actuated as they are by the purest motives that could dwell in the breast of man, the Grays Nos. 1 and 2 may be relied on for
Gone into Camp. --The new Artillery Company, attached to the Fourth Regiment, Company, attached to the Fourth Regiment, commanded by Jefferson Peyton, and armed with six of Parrott's rifle cannon, have gone into camp at the Baptist College. The pieces used by the company will carry a ball with accuracy three miles. Company "H," (second Grays,) Francis J. Boggs, Captain, expect to go into camp the first part of this week. The men are all armed and equipped, and the Captain indefatigable in imparting instruction.
