onsisted of the 1st company of the Washington Artillery, Capt Squiers, commanding, a Parrott section of the Loudoun Battery under Capt. Rogers, and one piece of Stuart's horse artillery, with a small cavalry support, the whole being in charge of Col. Lee; and having reached the desired point on the river bank, under cover of the night, they opened fire last Monday morning on the enemy's transports coming up with reinforcements and supplies for McClellan's army. The first transport was disabled tillery became known, the enemy brought up his gunboats and shelled them at a desperate rate. Managing, however, to avoid their range, our boys waited till evening, when a large fleet of transports appeared in the river, supported by gunboats. Col. Lee then ordered them into battery on the bank just opposite, when they poured into the Yankee vessels a terrible fire of shot and shell. Having all rifled guns and a good range the shots from our artillery told upon the enemy with great effect, si

This, at least, is our view of the case, although we confess we have no date upon which the opinion is founded.

We have no doubt of our power to resist him successfully, let him bring what forces he may. But our eyes should not be closed for a moment to the momentous character of the struggle which is about to be renewed around this capital. Doubtless our military authorities have carefully scrutinized all the chances of the conflict and are fully prepared for all its eventualities. Gen. Lee, besides being a great General in the field, is by universal consent, acknowledged to be the best organizer of the day. We have full confidence in his capacity to prepare the means of resistance, and to use them when once prepared.

McClellan to be Guilletined. A gentleman of undoubted veracity, who was several days a prisoner with the Yankees, made his escape, and arrived in town yesterday. We understand he asserts it as an indisputable fact, that McClellan and his staff have been ordered to report to the Secretary of War at Washington. The guillotine is thirsty, and General Lee sends it a whole batch of victims. We have no doubt he will continue to supply it as long as the Yankee. Generals give him an opportunity. Won't old Scott chuckle?.
