tillery, two hundred barrels of salt-petre, forty thousand army shoes, and a large assortment of merchandise. --Charleston Mercury. A strong Union force under the command of Colonel A. D. Straight, left Nashville, Tonn., on a raid into Alabama and Georgia.--(Doc. 173.) Yesterday, the Fifty-ninth Virginia rebel regiment, Colonel Tabb, was sent to the roar of Fort Magruder, at Williamsburgh, Va. At the break of day this morning he made a descent upon the National cavalry camp at Whitaker's Mill, and destroyed the whole camp, commissary and hospital stores, and an immense amount of ammunition, besides killing a large number of horses. Five of the Nationals were killed, several wounded, nineteen taken prisoners, and some twenty or so of the sick paroled. After this feat Colonel Tabb made good his retreat without the loss of a man — only one officer and private wounded.--Richmond Examiner. A brief skirmish occurred in the vicinity of the Blackwater, Va., between the Union

that they could not return but as captives or corpses. I have seen them in the Slaughter pen there slay twice their own numbers before they stacked the arms for which they had no amunition. I have seen them employ their leisure and amuse their ennui at Chaffin's farm by mechanic arts for the army of a blockaded country! I have seen their efficiency on the peninsulas of the James and York, and of the Chickahominy and Pamunkey. I have seen their successful strategy at Williamsburg and Whitaker's Mill, and their steadiness in the din of metal at Malvern Hill. I have seen their temper and spirit tried in the lagoons and galls of the Edisto and Stono, and their pluck on John's Island, in South Carolina. I have heard the shouts of the Virginia men when ordered back from South Carolina and Florida to rally again around the altars of home, and heard them raise the slogan of Old Virginia never tire, when they pressed forward to open the defile at Nottoway bridge, and rushed to Petersburg

ary in James City, ascertained that the enemy, 3,000 strong, already apprised of our movement, had occupied Fort Magruder and the other sixteen redoubts around Williamsburg, and we planned to destroy his stores of munitions and provisions at Whitaker's Mill, nearly four miles in his rear. Tabb, with only 218 men, a portion of the 59th, was sent forward that night, and we attacked the redoubts in front with 900 men at daybreak the next morning. The plan succeeded gloriously, in destroying from $300,000 to $500,000 worth of stores and their quarters at Whitaker's Mill, without the loss of a man. We occupied Williamsburg and vicinity for about a week in face of an enemy in our front three times our number; relieved many of the inhabitants of their durance vile; saved much property, and avenged somewhat the outrages which had followed Shingler's raid, and returned to Chaffin's to meet the thanks of the War Department and of General Elzey.
