ed grand results, but the enemy are still pressing the battle with desperation. Our loss to day is not very heavy, as we have been fighting mostly behind breastworks. The enemy are fighting in the open field and their loss must be terrible. Hill's whole corps has been extensively engaged all day, recovering in some instances the ground lost by other troops, and Mahone's and Lane's brigades, about 2 o'clock, made a most gallant charge, capturing about 300 prisoners and a number of stands orant's losses, since the campaign began, put at the lowest figures, is 50,000. Our losses in killed and missing, all told, since the campaign began, is not over 15,000. Fredericksburg is said to be garrisoned with negro troops. Lieut. Gen. A. P.

The forces disposed of in this summary manner by Anderson was the fifth army corps, which Ewell had beaten so handsomely three days before in the Wilderness. Some two hundred prisoners and five or six hundred small arms fell into our hands. Ewell's corps moved from the battle-field early yesterday (Sunday) morning, and Hill's corps Sunday night, the former got into position last evening, and the latter this morning. Thus has Gen Lee succeeded in throwing his whole army right across the path of his antagonist. Had the ground been more favorable to military operations, or had the enemy delayed his attack on the second day an hour longer, until Longstreet could get in position our victory at the Wilderness would have been decisive and crushing.
