the left, which, to have been permanently gained by the enemy, would, in all probability, have been to us the loss of the battle. General Ransom speaks in high terms of the conduct of Colonel Ransom, of the Thirty-fifth North Carolina, of Lieutenant-Colonel Bryson, of the Twenty-fifth, and Adjutant Cooke, of the Twenty-fourth North Carolina regiments, as having particularly distinguished themselves. The light batteries of Captains French and Branch, the latter under command of Lieutenant R. G. Pegram, at different times during the day were engaged with the enemy, and did good service, especially French's, posted on the extreme left, and under the immediate orders of General Stuart. Captain Wm. A. Smith, my Assistant Adjutant-General, and Lieutenant J. A. Galt, Aid-decamp, were with me upon the field, and rendered me valuable assistance in transmitting orders. The division suffered heavily, particularly Manning's command, (Walker's brigade,) which, at one time, sustained al

But his triumph, if it can be called so, was short lived. The invincible Mahone threw his veterans upon the enemy, recovered the salien last evening brought over some two hundred and twenty of our wounded. Up to the time the train left Petersburg everything remained quiet on the lines. Pegram's Battery was formerly commanded by Capt. James R. Branch (promoted to a Lieutenant-Colonelcy,) but is now under the command of Capt. R. G. Pegram. It is thoughtCapt. R. G. Pegram. It is thought that a good many of its men, at first supposed to have been killed, were stunned and taken prisoners. We understand that our military authorities are well satisfied with the day's work, and believe it has spoiled Grant's new plan for the reduction of Petersburg. The Northern Border.

[important news from Petersburg. Petersburg, July 30. --The enemy sprung a mine under our works on the Baxter Road, one and a half miles from the city, this morning about 5 o'clock, blowing up a considerable portion of our works, which were occupied by Pegram's battery, of this city, supported by Elliott's South Carolina brigade. A number of lives w The enemy at once bounded forward driving in our forces and occupying a large portion of our lines.

Among the prisoners were some 20 negroes. The slaughter of the enemy during the engagement is represented by distinguished of
