We learn from a most reliable source (says the Lynchburg Republican) that in the fight near Princeton, Mercer county, the other say, between Gen. Heth's force and the Yankee under Cox, the Federal loss was 211 killed, wounded and prisoners, 70 of whom were killed or mortally wounded Col. Wharron's 51st Virginia regiment acted a conspicuous part in the fight, and behaved with the greatest courage and discipline. It was only 300 strong, and was attacked in front and rest by 2,700 Yankees. The enemy was put to fight, however, with the loss above stated, and the regiment, which at one time it was thought would be cut off and captured, escaped with slight loss. Another c
ls glanced harmless from her prow. The Aristock and Port Royal were not materially injured. The unusual elevation of the rebel battery and the difficulty of gunboats getting the proper range, the latter were for a time unable to do execution. In the meantime the rebel battery poured an incessant fire of shot and shell upon the decks of the gunboats, and did a fearful work. The body of M. Boernan, gunner of the Galena, was carried to Fortress Monroe for interment. Seward and Welles visited Norfolk on Friday. Col. Brown, of the 20th Indiana regiment, stationed at Portsmouth, went out of town to take a ride. An hour afterwards his horse returned wounded and riderless. He is supported to have been killed by rebels. Nothing important in the papers from Halleck or McClellan, and not a word about Milroy or Cox. Over five hundred vessels are advertised to sail for Southern ports by the first of June. It is said there will be two hundred clearances for cargoes of ice.
