n of their army after the battle, and realized that their boasted victory was a bloody defeat, they became more charitable in their opinions. I became well satisfied from the conversation I overheard from rebel officers and visitors, during my incarceration here, that a favorite doctrine of Dixie is to adjust their peculiar institution in such a way as to include the poor whites as well as the colored people as chattel property. I was here visited by two rebel captains belonging to Bushrod Johnston's staff, one of whom was a lawyer from Virginia, named McMoore. These men conversed freely on the times. Both of them expressed themselves as decidedly in favor of an American Aristocracy! They argued, with as much earnestness and ability as their vocabulary furnished words, the imbecility of Republican government; and to prove the immutability of their opinions, cited to me the semi-idiotic and degraded clayeaters of the South, saying: What do these men know of civil institu

Among the prisoners that arrived on Sunday and yesterday are Lieut. Colonel Lyon, of the Eighth Kentucky, Col. John M. Rittars, Lieut. Col. Abercathy, of the Fifty-third Tennessee, and Lieut. Col. Overton. General Buckner is confined alone, in a room in the United States Cou
ices, through newspapers received here to as late as yesterday. The papers contain nothing of special interest from Washington nor of any important movements of the Federal army of the Potomac. As formerly, we have many rumors in the camps about the advance of the Federals; their crossing the Potomac at distant points in large numbers, and other movements intended to divert the attention of our authorities and the Generals in command of our forces, but the Federals will always find Gen. Johnston as prompt to discern their movements and intentions, as he is ready and prepared to give them battle and defeat them.

C. brigade, of Ewell's corps, turned the enemy's extreme right flank, about four miles above Germanza ford, last evening, between sunset and dark, capturing four hundred prisoners, including Brig. Gens. Seymour and Shater. --The enemy, comp a handsome repulse of the enemy with heavy loss. Their loss is reported by prisoners taken by our pickets to have been at lest 1,000 killed and wounded. Our loss is small. The particulars of the engagement we have been unable to get. --Gen. Bushrod Johnston was in immediate command of our troops. It appears that the enemy were too badly crippled to make another advance. Some of their scouts, however, reached the railroad about a mile and a half this side of the Junction, and commenced to t
. This official confirmation of the reports previously received caused universal rejoicing, and the public mind rested satisfied under the knowledge of the fact that the enemy had received another severe punishment on the south side of the James. Every few of the wounded were brought to this city, most of them having been taken to Petersburg, which is a more accessible point from the scene of operations. Among those brought in Saturday evening was Capt Blake more, of General Bushrod Johnston's Stall, whose leg had been amputated about six inches below the knee joint. Lieut. Hatrike, of the 50th North Carolina regiment, was also wounded. Shortly after midnight on Saturday night the Yankees, not satisfied with the drubbing they had repeatedly received, made an attempt to regain possession of the works taken from them on Friday, and to that end made an advance upon our lines. The report is that our troops reserved their fire until the enemy were within a short dista
