A Northern dispatch from Fortress Monroe, June 14, admits that Maj. Winthrop was killed in the battle at Rothel Church.
our troopers, who met them at Newmarket Bridge, three miles from Hampton, to which point the Secession pickets now extend. They were courteously treated by Col. J. B. Magruder, who commanded at Great Bethel. There was a large encampment of Cavalry at Yorktown, and the place was being strongly fortified. There are also batteries between Great Bethel and Yorktown. The Confederates report one killed and five wounded, and expressed a hope that Gen. Pierce may be retained in command. Major Winthrop was shot by a Louisiana rifleman while leading a vigorous charge. He was buried by the Confederates, who greatly praised his heroism. I have just brought his cap and spurs from the Zouave camp. Two Zouaves died prisoners, viz: Benjamin F. Hopper and Joseph S. Taylor, nephew of Moses Taylor. The Confederates represented that they had other prisoners whom they were willing to exchange. Captain Phillips has to day visited the Fortress with a flag of truce in reference to the same.
