em, when they broke and fled. The battle ended on Saturday afternoon, and the enemy retreated in great haste on Saturday night. Had they remained until the next day, we are satisfied, from the dispositions that had been made by General-----, that they would have been captured. Their safety is not now an assured fact by any means. We rode over the battle-field on Sunday, observing the results of the previous day's work. On two or three contiguous fields, on the farm of Dr. Owen and John B. Lee, we counted some forty odd dead Yankees, who lay stiff, and stark, and nude, a spectacle of horrors. They had been denuded, it was said, by their particular friends, gentlemen of African descent. Most of them were supposed to be sharpshooters, who fell in advance of the enemy's lines, and quite near to our rifle-pits and intrenchments. Fully three fourths of them were shot through the head, and others through the heart, thus showing the accuracy of that unerring aim which sent them t

oon forget. There was no general engagement until about three o'clock, but a constant cannonade and heavy skirmishing went on all day. Our lines were out near and in Spring Hill Cemetery; the enemy's further out. Their skirmish line was in Mr. John B. Lee's yard, where a number were killed by our cannon. I went out on College Hill and watched the fighting much of the time. It was very exciting to see the cannon fire from both sides and the explosion of the shells on the opposite side. It w, the land of poetry and romance. It is Wallace and Tell who are the heroes of the poet and the novelist, not the commanders of the great forces with which they contended. In the far future many a novel, many a poem, and many a song will tell of Lee, of Jackson, of Stuart and of Mosby—ideal heroes of romance—long after the names of the leaders who fought them will be mere facts in the prosaic history of the power of the greater to overcome the less. It is not our duty to weep over the past

precisely a furious cannonading set in, and, with some brief intervals of silence, was continued until late in the afternoon. Occasionally the roll of musketry was heard as an accompaniment to the deeper toned thunders of artillery. The line of battle extended from about half a mile above the toll gate (two and a half miles from Lynchburg,) on the Lynchburg and Salem turn pike, moving in a direction a little west of north, including portions of the land of Dr. Owen, Charles Moorman, John B. Lee, H. S. Barksdale, and terminating on the farm of Seth Halsey, near the Blackwater creek. The distance embraced by this line must be two and a half to three miles. A large body of cavalry supposed to be about 4,000 drawn up in line of battle in Captain Barksdale's field, on the Forest road, charged upon our fortifications with great spirit, and yelling defiance at the top of their voices, which were to the point while the Doctor stood concealed. He heard them cry, "come cut of your
all. After the affair was over, General Smith went to thanks them and tell them he was proud of their courage and dash. He says they cannot be exceeded as soldiers, and that hereafter he will send them in a difficult place as readily as his best white troops. They captured six out of the thirteen cannon which he took. The prisoners he took were from Beauregard's command. Some of them said they had just crossed the sames river above Drewry's Bluff. I do not think any of Lee's army had reached Petersburg when Smith stormed it. They seem to be there this morning, however, and to be making arrangements to hold the west side of the Appomattox. The town they cannot think of holding, as it lies directly under our guns. The weather continues splendid. City Point, Va, June 16, 4.15 P. M, via Jamestown Island, 11.45 P.
