The heaviest fighting is reported in Rode's, Kershaw's, and Hoke's front, who gallantly repulsed every assault of the enemy. Our loss is very slight, not over five hundred in killed and wounded. That of the enemy is fully six thousand, some estimate it as high as ten thousand. The enemy at one time broke through Breckinridge's division, capturing three pieces of artillery. Finnegan, however, quickly came up, recapturing the artillery and taking one piece from the enemy.--Breckinridge lost probably two hundred prisoners.
