we could get nothing authentic regarding names, we fear to give them. It is generally conceded that Captain Sturdivant was captured, and also Major Batte, of the Petersburg city battalion. The position gained by the enemy is a most important one. Our generals are fully aware of this, and we shall undoubtedly have hot work to-day. Officers in the field yesterday, estimate the number of the enemy actually seen fronting different portions of our lines at from ten to twelve thousand. It is believed that this is only the column, and that Grant has nearly his entire army on this side of the river. Thirty odd transports ascended the James river with troops yesterday. Twenty three prisoners brought in last night, belonging to the One Hundred and Forty-eighth New York regiment, all concur in the statement that Baldy Smith's entire army corps (the Eighteenth), is on this side of the river. Again, other prisoners taken yesterday morning, state that they belong to Burnside's corps.
