were but foul aspersions. Victors were never more charitable and forbearing. After looking well about the town, Gen. McClellan, having chosen for his quarters a large brick house on the main street, said to have been recently occupied by General Johnston, he there established his staff, and himself returned with one or two aids to the battle-field. Graham's brigade and others soon arrived, and before evening thousands of Federal troops were encamped in and about the city, while a reconnoiwelve pieces of artillery and nine hundred prisoners. The fight lasted from seven o'clock to eleven o'clock A. M. The troops engaged on our side consisted of a portion of the division of Major-General Longstreet. An official letter from Gen. Johnston states that a handsome affair took place at Williamsburgh on Monday. The enemy attacked our rearguard in great force, and were driven back to the woods about a mile.

ile the Third Virginia, commanded by Col. Hewes, and Lieut.-Col. Thompson, moved up farther to the left, and from that point poured a galling fire into the rebels, compelling them partially to change front. The Third Virginia, in taking its position, placed itself between two fires, but the men held their ground, and fought with coolness and determination worthy of veterans. During the early part of the engagement Gen. Milroy was superintending both the battle and planting a section of Capt. Johnston's battery on a hill which partially commanded the position of the enemy. The guns were planted and handled by Lieut. Bowers, and did good execution. Capt. Hyman also got two of his guns in position, but the position of the enemy was such that his shells would pass over their heads. Our troops cannot be too highly praised for their heroic conduct in the battle of Bull Pasture Mountain. For near three hours they contended successfully against four times their own number.

Joe Johnston did not desire a river of such magnitude in his rear, and, acmselves into the vicinity of Richmond. The new line assumed by Gen. Johnston was on the south. side of the Chickahominy, for the most part,uld preclude all possibility of movements for several days. Gen..

Joe Johnston is slightly wounded by a fragment of a shell, but is doing we
place during the fourth instant. I will mention that we had the pleasure of firing the last naval shot at Yorktown on the evening previous to the evacuation, and that one of our twelve-pound Hotchkiss shell, projected a fraction over four miles, exploded and killed five of the enemy, and one of the solid shot passed about one half a mile beyond the town, or four and a half miles. All the prisoners who have been captured, or have given themselves up to me, agree in saying that the rebel army from Yorktown ( one hundred and twenty-five thousand well men ) will fall back to the Chickahominy, and that Gen. Johnston declares that he will not attempt to make a stand where our gunboats can cut up his men; they also say that the people feel that it is all over with them, and soldiers desert whenever they can. I am, respectfully, your obedient servant, Thos. S. Phelps, Lieut. Commanding, Assistant in Coast Survey. Prof. A. D. Bache, Ll.D., Superintendent United States Coast Survey.

General Johnston's address. headquarters Department of Northern Virginia, May 29, 1862. the Commanding General has the proud satisfaction of announcing to the army another brilliant success, won by the skill and courage of our generals and troops in the Valley.

I thought proper to mention other regiments as they became attached to my command, during the progress of the action, through the loss of their brigade commanders. I also send you reports of regiments which were not under my immediate eye, during part of the day. The following is the loss of the brigade:  C
