From Gen. Lee's army. Battle Field Near Gaines's Mills June 3--5 P M. --Heth's division participated with Ewell in the fight yesterday, capturing over two hundred prisoners. Among his wounded was Brig. Gen. Kirkland, slightly. The battle opened at sunrise this morning about ten miles below Richmond, extending from the Mechanicsville road to McClellan's bridge, making the line of battle over seven miles long, the enemy making the attack. 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.
Arrival of Yankees. --There arrived in this city yesterday seven hundred and six Yankee prisoners, among whom were twelve officers, captured by Gen. Ewell in the fight on the left of the enemy's lines Wednesday afternoon. During their passage down Main street to the Libby prison some of them were very insulting to citizens on the streets, so much so that one of them drew a pistol and would have fired had he not been prevented by a few friends.
