crossed the Chickahominy at Bottom's bridge, and it was rumored last evening that they were again advancing towards Richmond on some point on the Central Railroad. We could get no confirmation of this report. From Northern Virginia. Passengers by the Fredericksburg train last evening brought a report that a severe engagement took place yesterday morning on the right wing of Gen Lee's army, near Massaponax church, and that the enemy were twice handsomely repulsed by our forces under Ewell. No official information was received at headquarters here last night, of the reported engagement, but it was generally credited. The scene of the fight is located at Stanard's Mill, about sixteen miles from Fredericksburg. The victory in the Valley. Later advices from the Valley of Virginia make the victory of General Breckinridge over Sigel even more complete than first accounts represented it. Gen. Breckinridge, in celerity of movement, has proved himself a worthy successor

Ewell and Hill pushed rapidly down the turnpike and plank roads, encountey repulsed by Wilena's and Heth's divisions. His final attack upon Ewell was made after night against that part of the line held by Edward Javing many dead and wounded on the ground.
