repared to bivouac on the field, in readiness for the events of to-day. Of course it is impossible at this time to chronicle but a small portion of the casualties and incidents. We give such as we have been able to obtain. The Twelfth Virginia and the Third Alabama behaved nobly. Both regiments were cut up badly. The Richmond Grays lost two killed and five wounded and missing. Probably no regiment suffered more than the Third Alabama. Besides Col. Lomax, Adjt. Johnson, Capt. Mays, Capt. Phelan, and Lieut. James Brown were killed, and Capt. Ready, Capt. Robinson, Lieut. Witherspoon, Lieut. Gardner, Lieut. Patridge were wounded. The casualties were among the officers alone.

The people were much pleased to be so well protected. While Phelan entertained the family Jack went on duty outside to protect the hens. Soon a squawking was heard, and Corporal Phelan grasped his musket and rushed to reinforce Jack. They secured three good hens, and forgot to go back to the house, but reported to camp. When they arrived I discovereCorporal Phelan grasped his musket and rushed to reinforce Jack. They secured three good hens, and forgot to go back to the house, but reported to camp. When they arrived I discovered that they had plunder, and called them before me. With downcast eyes they l told the story of their shame and begged for mercy. As an officer I must do my duty, and they must be punished. I ordered them to cook one of the three hens and deliver it to me. With sad hearts they obeyed the order.

s to excite great interest, and the room of Mr. Lynch, in Fourteenth street, where it is held, is daily crowded to its utmost capacity by gentlemen who feel an interest in the game. The games yesterday were first between Messrs. Kavanagh and White.--Mr. White was beaten by 132 points, the highest run in the game being 53, which was made by Mr. Kavanagh, who is a cool and graceful player. The second game, between Messrs. Tieman and Lynch, was one of the closest and best con of any thus far played. Mr. Lynch led off in some splendid runs, ranging from 74 to 16, but towards the close of the game his hasty but good-- natured antagonist was shined up, and when the game was even within a single point, made a splendid run of 85, and was proclaimed the victor. On Wednesday Messrs. Kavanagh and Tieman will play, and as the prize cue undoubtedly lies between them, much interest is felt as to the result,--On Thursday Mr. Phelan will play a game of 500 points with the winner.-- N.
