soners. At an early hour in the morning the following official dispatch was received from Gen. Beauregard, commanding the forces on the Southside. Drewry's Bluff,May 16, 1864--6.30 A. M. To Gen.

Their right flank was turned by a force under Gen. Ransom, and they were driven towards their centre with considerable loss.

We have received from a friend a copy of the Baltimore American, of Friday evening last, May 13th, nearly two days later intelligence than that published yesterday. It was captured in the fight yesterday below Drewry's Bluff, by H. M. Walthall, co D, 1st Va infantry. The Yankees had received the intelligence of the capture of Gens Ed Johnson and Stuart, and in pieces of artillery, on Thursday last, and were in high feather over it.
