to pass inward towards Hampton, unless it appear that they intend to go round about and dodge through to the front. At 12, midnight, Col. Duryea will march his regiment with fifteen rounds cartridges, on the county road toward Little Bethel. Scows will be provided to ferry them across Hampton Creek. March will be rapid, but not hurried. A howitzer with canister and shrapnel to go. A wagon with planks and materials to repair the New Market bridge. Duryea to have the 200 rifles, (Sharpe's rifles, purchased the day previous, are alluded to.) He will pick the men to whom to intrust them. Rocket to be thrown up from Newport News. Notify Commodore Prendergast (flag-officer) of this, to prevent general alarm. Newport News movement to be made somewhat later than this, as the distance is less. If we find and surprise them we will fire one volley, if desirable, not reload, and go ahead with the bayonet. As the attack is to be by night, or dusk of morning, and in detach

Backus, of Newark, slightly wounded in the left leg. William Dening, of Hamilton, Butler County, had the skin above his right ear cut by a ball; seven or eight of the men received scratches, and had their clothing riddled. Captain Lawson says Mr. Miller, of Worthington, was the coolest and pluckiest fellow in the fight. He was the last to quit the field, and left the bushes twice to get a fair shot; but Dr. McMeans said every man of the party displayed good pluck. The wounded were brought to the hospital in wagons this morning, and are comfortable. Capt. Lawson and his men are confident that some were killed on the bridge. Seven were killed outside of the bridge. All accounts agree that the rebels were about three hundred strong, mostly Georgians, including forty horsemen, armed with Sharpe's carbines. General McClellan is much pleased with the gallantry of the men, but severely censures the expedition. Lawson gives valuable information about the topography of Middle-Fork.
nding to pursue them to Temperanceville, when Capt. Crosby overtook them with the order, Make the best of your way back to the fort as soon as possible! Not one of our men had been even wounded. The charge that had been made by them was a splendid one, and not a single soldier of ours showed any thing but bravery. The credit of the affair belongs to Capt. White and his company, and to Lieut. Ryan, who rushed on bravely at the head of about fourteen of the Naval Brigade. Lieut. Ryan had a Sharpe's rifle, and with it shot one of the rebels down deliberately. The Federal troops took a number of muskets, caps, pieces of uniforms, &c., and had it not been for the order to retreat would have captured a large number of prisoners. I may here say that the uniform of Lieut. Crossly is made of coarse Kentucky jeans, green facings, and trimmed with the sic semper tyrannis buttons. In the afternoon, after the retreat down Pocomoke River, they took a prize schooner, and early the following mo
