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.

We very much fear that the modesty of Gen. Lee induces him to underrate his own importance; and yet we think the sublime incident of the 12th of May, when he was desir doubt that the army of Northern Virginia would, could they always be assured that their leader was out of danger.
And General Lee owes it to himself, to the cause, to the unbounded affection of his countrymen and countrywomen, to the love, passing
