enemy. I will write again soon, and give you any additional news. A free negro spy, who was arrested by our pickets at The Forge, was brought to this city yesterday by Mr. O. F. Taylor. The negro states that a force of about 2,000 Federal infantry, with artillery and cavalry, was encamped four miles this side of Williamsburg. Our scouts, on Wednesday, saw two Federal soldiers up as high as Barhamsville, 18 miles this side of Williamsburg. The Yankees ran off. Mr. Taylor, on his way up, saw 14 Virginians who had escaped from the Eastern Shore. They describe the Yankee rule there as very oppressive, though the force there is not very large. In noticing the battle of Williamsburg, it should have been stated that the charge made by our troopers on the Yankees at their last stand was led by Col. Shingler in person. A lady, who recently passed through the lines from Williamsburg, says that the Yankees acknowledge a loss of 200 in killed and wounded at the fight there.
