The United States army. --The U. S. Army Register for August, 1863, gives us some interesting information relative to the organization of that body and the changes which have taken place in the last month. It consists of 23 army corps, but as two of them, the 4th and 7th, have been so decimated by battle as to render their consolidation with others necessary, there are only 21 corps organized. These corps are commanded by the following officers: 1st corps, Maj Gen Newton; 2d, Maj Gen Hancock; 3d, Maj Gen Sickles; 5th, Maj Gen Sykes, 6th, Maj Gen Sedgwick; 8th, Maj Gen Schenck; 9th, Maj Gen Parke; 10th, Brig Gen Gillmore; 11th, Maj Gen Howard; 12th, Maj Gen Slocum; 13th, Maj Gen Ord; 14th, Maj Gen Thomas; 15th, Maj Gen Sherman; 16th, Major Gen Hurlbut; 17th, Maj Gen McPherson; 18th, Maj Gen Foster; 19th, Maj Gen Banks; 20th, Maj Gen McCook; 21st, Maj Gen Crittenden; 22d, Maj Gen Heintzleman; 23d, Maj Gen Hartsuff.--Besides these corps there is a cavalry corps under Maj Gen Sto
driven at all points. There has been no straggling. At the last accounts Hancock was pushing forward rapidly by the left to Spotsylvania Court House, and yeste Saturday. The rebels were in full retreat for Richmond by the divided road. Hancock passed through Spotsylvant C. H. at daylight yesterday.--Our headquarters at nvania Court House, and it was reported from the front on Sunday morning that Gen Hancock was in occupation of that place. Gen Grant's whole army was in vigorous purade repeated and furious assaults up on our right and left wings, commanded by Hancock and Sedgwick, with temporary successes, but has been driven back with great slh Pennsylvania, wounded. At the latest dates received by the War Department Gen Hancock was rapidly pushing by the left to Spotsylvania Court-House. --Heavy cannonas army was in full retreat through Spotsylvania, and when the messenger left Gen Hancock was entering the place in pursuit. We have captured many prisoners, but
what is said There. We publish this morning news from the Northern press to the 12th inclusive. The extracts given are curious and amusing.--Up to the 9th, which is the latest date of our first batch of news, Stanton had the telegraph under his control, and made it say what he wanted it to say. Grant was victorious and on his way to Richmond, said Stanton; but he singularly enough sends him via Fredericksburg, which is due east of Germanna, while Richmond is due south.--He however puts Hancock on the same day (the 8th) into Spotsylvania Court-House, from which, if he was ever there, he was certainly whipped, as our forces hold it and confront the enemy, who has been unable to dislodge them. "The cool determination and courage" of the Federal troops, says the truthful Stanton, "was too much for the desperate fury of the rebels, who have been driven at all points" ! ! Butler sent him General Lee's modest and guarded message of the first battle, and he communicated that to the publi
r and others of Fitz Lee's brigades. The "pitching in" of Warren, Wright, and Hancock, which took place at nightfall, is already known to the Confederates as havinghe left, speedily, Gen Meade ordered an attack by the balance of our lines. Gen Hancock was the only one who received the order in time to make the attack before dahas just closed. As soon as the enemy attacked the left of Warren, Wright and Hancock were ordered to pitch in, but do not seem to have got ready until after nightfpatch above referred to is dated at 6 o'clock this morning, and states that on Hancock's attack last night, Col Brooks drove the enemy out of a strongly entrenched stomy creek, last evening, and is in full connection with Warren's. The left of Hancock's rests upon this side of the creek. The 6th corps is upon Hancock's right, aHancock's right, and threatens the left flank of the enemy. Smith ought to arrive at New Castle by noon, whence he can support Warren and Burnside, if necessary. Sheridan, w
