thunder. It was then believed a general engagement had taken place; but the firing soon ceased, convincing us it was but a skirmish. Only a few meagre facts have yet been obtained of the affair, and I have waited up to the last moment for further accounts. What has been learned here can be told in a few words. --Early yesterday morning eight thousand of the Federals marched up to Munson's Hill, which our men were fortifying, and made an attempt to dislodge them.--Our advance consists of Longstreet's and Bonham's brigades, stationed near each other, and close by Munson's Hill. Long-street's force is composed of the First Virginia Regiment, commanded by Lieut. Col. Fry, in the absence of Col. Moore, who was wounded at the battle of the 18th; the Seventh Virginia, Col. Kemper, Lieut. Col. Williams, and Major Patton; the Eleventh Virginia, Col. Garland; the Seventeenth Virginia, Col. Corse; one Georgia Regiment attached at present, and several pieces of artillery. Gen. Bonham has four

The long-range Enfield guns, with which the skirmishing companies of the enemy are supplied, give them a great advantage over our pickets, and yesterday a Tennesseean was shot through the head at the distance of half a mile, and instantly killed. Three Confederate officers passed through Fairfax Court-House this morning en route to Washington, the bearers, it is supposed, of a communication from our Government at Richmond. The advanced position of Gen. Longstreet entails upon his brigade a large amount of picket duty. Many of the farmers and merchants of the neighboring counties have wagons at the various encampments filled with provisions and articles of merchandize, for which they demand the most exorbitant prices. In many instances whiskey has been sold privately to soldiers, and for the most ordinary article only one dollar and a half per pint has been taken from the poor soldier. Col. James L. Kemper, whose bravery and devotion to hi
een called to a communication from Fair-fax Court-House, signed "Ithuriel," which appeared in your paper of the 26th of August, in which there is the following statement: "The regiments immediately around Fair-fax compose the Brigade of Gen Longstreet. Many of them were formerly in the brigade of Gen. Early, of Franklin county, but became dissatisfied with him in consequence of an error into which he fell during the battle of the 21st--mistaking the enemy, who had hoisted a Confederate fl 7th Virginia Regiment sustained no fire on the 18th or 21st of July when I was not in front of it, and on the former day I had to sustain its fire, when it fired by mistake in rear of some of our own troops. It is the only regiment in General Longstreet's brigade, as at present organized, which ever was in any brigade commanded by me, and it was not taken from my brigade on account of any dissatisfaction with me which may have existed, if any there was. My brigade, when I was a Colone
$20 reward. --A reward of $20 will be paid for the recovery of my servant boy, Taylor, who left my house about the 19th of April. He was seen to get on board of the York River Railroad cars, in company with some soluters on their way to Yorktown, who were supposed to belong to Gen Longstreet's division. Taylor is about 14 years old, rather small for his age, of dark ginger-break color, ready and smart in his address, and very sprightly in manner. Address. Francis W.

affair at Malvern Hill. An officer who participated in the affair at Malvern Hill has furnished us with the following particulars with reference to the occupancy of that point by the enemy, and its subsequent recovery by our forces under Gen. Longstreet: On Tuesday morning the 8th Georgia regiment Captain Dawson commanding, was moved up from New Market Heights to relieve the 17th, then on picket at Malvern Hill. On the march they were met by several couriers, stating that the enemy we, the cavalry and infantry took position at an eligible position about 400 yards in rear of the woods. The enemy made no further demonstration on that day having full possession of the hill. On Wednesday morning at daylight the corps of Gen Longstreet was moved forward, and encamped night within half a mile of the hill, the day having been spent in reconnoitering. On Thursday, about 12 o'clock, the corps advanced and took possession of the hill without firing a gun, the enemy having the

All our shops and stores were closed, and, with very few exceptions, were not disturbed. Destroying public property. There were considerable Government stores here — some two hundred pairs of shoes, a few boxes of clothing, and a large quantity of ammunition captured recently from Gen Longstreet. It was stored in the warehouse of Wunderlich & Nead About eleven o'clock their rear guard was ready to leave, and they notified the citizens residing near the warehouses to remove their families, as they were going to burn all public property. The railroad station house, machine shop, found house, and the warehouses filled with ammunition, were then fired and the last of the rebels fled the town in a little while a terrific explosion told that the flames had reached the powder, and fo

Deserters come in occasionally, all of whom report a large body of rebels confronting us. Gens. Hill and Longstreet are certainly there and reinforcements are daily arriving.

Longstreet arrived at Iron Station, on the Norfolk and Petersburg railroad, Wednesday morning. He stated that Suffolk was complble positions occupied for our heavy guns, in the event of any attack by the enemy's gunboats. It was not known that Gen Longstreet intended to make an effort to carry the enemy's fortifications at Suffolk by direct assault.--Many are of the opinionhis supplies the garrison at Suffolk must speedily capitulate, and that to avoid any unnecessary effusion of blood. Gen. Longstreet will resort to this expedient.
