The lines below Richmond. A number of conflicting reports were yesterday in circulation with reference to an engagement which occurred at Malvern Hill early in the morning. It is stated that at 2 o'clock A. M. the enemy attempted to advance a force into Curl's Neck, which was driven back with considerable loss by our forces, comprising a portion of Gen. Longstreet's division. Later in the morning, having been strongly reinforced, they attacked our forces at Malvern Hill, and succeeded, aMalvern Hill, and succeeded, after a severe engagement, in obtaining possession of that point. Our force at that place is represented to have embraced one regiment of infantry, one of cavalry, and a field battery. Early in the engagement the ammunition of the battery was exhausted, to which to mainly attributed the loss of the field. A courier, who arrived in the city late in the afternoon, states that we lost three pieces of artillery, and had some six or eight men captured. Our loss in killed and wounded was not as cer
housand in number, and landed at Aiken's about 5 o'clock in the afternoon. After his capture he was taken to Williamsburg, where he remained for a week, when he was sent down to the Rip Raps, and from thence to Fort Delaware, where he was confined until the 30th of July. The second day after his arrival at the fort a number of prisoners were drawn up in line and a demand made for their money, the information being conveyed to them that $15 only would be allowed each prisoner. The next day the thing was repeated, and the amount allowed reduced to $5. In this way a large amount was taken from the prisoners, none of which was ever returned. Their watches were also taken and not restored. During the imprisonment at Fort Delaware, Messrs. Hitchcock and Davies, of the Dinwiddie cavalry, who were taken prisoners at Malvern Hill, died, the former quite suddenly. Mr. F. says that the labor of the prisoners at the fort was very heavy, and the fare very rough and exceedingly scant.
