s. Latest official Dispatch from Gen. Lee. The following dispatch was received at the War Department yesterday evening: Spotsylvania C H., May 14. To the President: The enemy assaulted Wilcox lines this morning and were handsomely repulsed.--Mahone's and Lane's brigades attacked his left, capturing 300 prisoners and four stands of colors. Light skirmishing along the whole line during the day. The enemy seems to be moving towards our right. In the afternoon Wright's and Harris's brigades assaulted his left and captured some prisoners and one stand of colors. (Signed) R. E. Lee. Guiney's Station, May 12. --Very little of interest transpired yesterday. Heavy skirmishing occurred at intervals during the whole of last night. This morning at daylight, the enemy having massed heavy forces in front of Johnson's division, made a most vigorous assault upon Jones's brigade. For a while our line of battle was broken, and the enemy pressed over our b
t indefinitely, but time presses. X. Sunday Morning, May 15th, 1864. The enemy yesterday threw a force of infantry on our extreme left and engaged our cavalry, protecting that flank. Our cavalry (Chambliss's brigade) fought them a considerable time, when they were reinforced by infantry, driving the enemy back and capturing from him some seventy or eighty prisoners. Everything is quiet at 12 o'clock today. The bearing of most of our troops was superb on Thursday last; but Harris's, Mabone's, and Lane's, and Pegram's brigades I have heard specially commended, as also the whole of Rodes's and Field's divisions. Early and Anderson, as commanders of corps, have shown extraordinary abilities and fitness for their positions. The roads are deep in mud, thus enbancing the difficulties of transportation. Their need, however, he no apprehensions on the score of rations, forage or ammunition. The wounded are being sent off as rapidly as possible. Yankee Ge
