The attack on Franklin. On Tuesday the enemy, in considerable force, made an attack on the village of Franklin, Southampton county, which they shelled for more than two hours. They also made several attempts to cross Blackwater river, on which Franklin is situated, but the reception given them by our forces there kept them in check. Their numbers were not known, but it is supposed they had with them more than one brigade. Some twelve or fourteen of their number were made prisoners. There were several other unimportant skirmishes on the same stream within the past few days.

From the South side. Reports were yesterday busily circulated of a skirmish which is said to have occurred at Franklin on Blackwater river, on Tuesday evening. A portion of Dodge's New York Mounted Riflemen were represented to have encountered some of our cavalry and a section of Wright's Rockett Battery. The battle is said to have lasted upwards of an hour and finally resulted in the loss of the section of Wright's battery engaged, and about fifteen of our men killed and wounded. The loss of the enemy is not known, as they were left in possession of the field. It is reported, however, that two of their horses were captured.

From the South-side. A member of Dodge's New York Mounted Riflemen deserted and came into our lines, near Zuni, a few days ago, and arrived at Petersburg on Friday. He is represented to be a likely, intelligent man, and has been in the service but three months, but expresses himself as fully satisfied with his war experience. He gives it as his opinion that there are not more than 15,000 now in and around Suffolk, and says that an attempt will be made to cross Backwater, at or near Franklin, at an early day, and that the material for pontoon bridges reached Norfolk on Friday week. Corcoran's Irish Legion arrived at Suffolk on Saturday week, and were received with some enthusiasm Corcoran was not with the Legion, being left at Fortress Monroe, where he lies quite ill with aphoid pneumonia. Corcoran is said to have expressed a desire to be assigned to duty at Suffolk, with the hope that opportunity might be afforded of avenging some "indignities" offered him in Petersburg i

The South-side. On Thursday last three Yankee gunboats ascended the Nottoway and Blackwater rivers, but were driven back by the forces under Gen. Pryor. They were subsequently reinforced by two others, and at last accounts the five were lying ten miles below Franklin in the Chowan, and supposed to be preparing for another attack. The Petersburg Express says that the Yankee accounts of the recent fight at Zuni and Joyner's Ford make out a much more disastrous result to the Yankees thahe forces under Gen. Pryor. They were subsequently reinforced by two others, and at last accounts the five were lying ten miles below Franklin in the Chowan, and supposed to be preparing for another attack. The Petersburg Express says that the Yankee accounts of the recent fight at Zuni and Joyner's Ford make out a much more disastrous result to the Yankees than was supposed. Two hundred killed and wounded, and they opposed by a mere handful of Confederates, was indeed a glorious result.

Arrival of Yankees. --About thirty Yankee prisoners arrived in the city yesterday, via Petersburg cars. They were captured in squads at various places — some on the Blackwater river, in Southampton county, some at Zuni Station, and a few in North Carolina. They were carried to General Winder's office and thence to the Libby prison.--The prisoners here are very anxious to be off, and our Government is equally solicitous to get rid of them; but going is out of the question until they are sent for. Last night Lieut. Pearson, of the 1st N C cavalry, brought down on the Central railroad eighteen Yankee cavalrymen, captured at various times in Fauquier; also, two citizens (not natives) of that county, who sought employment of the Yankees, and were found working on their breastworks.
