fought with less spirit than they had done during any of the previous engagements for the past two weeks. The following official dispatch was received at the War Department yesterday relative to the fight on Wednesday evening: Spotsylvania C. H., May 18, 7 P. M.,via Milford, 19th. Hon. J. A. Seddon, Sec., of War: The enemy opened his batteries on a portion of Ewell's line and attempted an assault, but failed. He was easily repulsed. Subsequently he cannonaded a portion of Hill's lines, near Early. The casualties on our side are very few. R. E. Lee. Butler's movements on the Southside does not appear to be very clear. It was asserted yesterday morning, with an air of truth, that he was embarking his troops at Bermuda Hundreds, and that a portion of them had already landed on the Peninsula or North side of James river. This report, however, lacks confirmation, and we are inclined to the opinion that he is lying quiescent under cover of his gunboats.
