and the rebels in front of Richmond, took place this morning. Engaged on our side was the Fourth Michigan regiment, Colonel Woodbury, who fought for two hours with desperate and heroic courage an entire rebel brigade. We lost one man killed, two moigence having reached headquarters that quite a force of the enemy was near New-Bridge, the Fourth Michigan regiment, Col. Woodbury, was sent to feel them, and, if necessary, interrupt their quiet. The regiment left camp at seven A. M., their Colonextending across the main road. Here the rebels were seen lying behind a fence across the river. The right wing of Colonel Woodbury's regiment was ordered to cross the river, which at this point is about thirty feet wide. In the men plunged, all a having received intelligence of the skirmish, rode toward the river and met the regiment on its return. He grasped General Woodbury warmly by the hand and said: General, I am happy to congratulate you again on your success. I have had occasion to

Potter, a Quartermaster Sergeant, shot through the head at Garlick's Landing. wounded.--A private of the Nineteenth Massachusetts, name unknown; Anton Haneman, laborer; Lieut. John Brelsford, company I, Eighty-first Pennsylvania; William Bradley, company E, One Hundredth New-York; Robert Gilmore, drummer, Eighty-seventh New-York; a lieutenant, whose name I could not learn; Albert Barker, Twelfth New-York; Jesse P. Woodbury, belonging to one of the gunboats. Several others are reported, but these are all I have been able to ascertain from reliable sources. There were several prisoners taken, some of whom escaped, and others who will no doubt turn up, as the rebels were not in condition to carry them very far. Early next morning after the occurrence, regiments of infantry were thrown along both sides of the railroad to act as a guard, while several companies of cavalry were despatched on scouting expe
he infantry supports having fallen back, Allen's, Weeden's, Hart's and Edwards's batteries were left exposed, and all of them lost a part of their armament. Most of Martindale's brigade were rallied within thirty rods of the enemy, under a heroic call from Col. Roberts, of the Second Maine; but he was not supported, and then continued to fall back with the troops. When the order to fall back reached the middle hospital--one of three houses about equidistant from each other, on the road to Woodbury's bridge — quite a stampede took place among the stragglers who had there congregated, most of them being men who had been detailed to bring in the wounded from their regiments, and who had failed to return. They made a rush for the bridge, followed by some of the troops, but before they reached the last hospital near the end of the bridge, they were speedily and summarily checked. About seven o'clock, Meagher's and French's brigades crossed the bridge, and advanced on the double-quick up
The Eighth Kansas, Lieut.-Col. Martin, and the Thirty-fifth Illinois, Lieut.-Col. Chandler, were advanced to the front, in rear of a section of Captain Pinney's Fifth Wisconsin battery, which, with the cavalry advance, had come upon the rebel outposts, and was then engaging a battery of the enemy. A little before sunset, these regiments were advanced to the front of the battery, and engaged the enemy till dark, when they fell back to their former position. The Eighty-first Indiana, Major Woodbury, and the Twenty-fifth Illinois, Lieut.-Col. McClelland, were thrown out as pickets upon the left and front. At daylight on the morning of the eighth, I sent forward a section of Capt. Hotchkiss's Second Minnesota battery, to relieve the section of Capt. Pinney's battery, which, under Lieut. Hill, had done such brilliant work the day before. At two P. M. on the eighth, in obedience to orders received from Major-General Gilbert, commanding corps, I advanced my division on the road, t
