t the Confederate arms were everywhere victorian. Below we give a summary of recent operations on the lines. From General Lee's army. In the engagement of Thursday evening was complete. General Early, commanding Ewell's carps, attacked thght, driving them at all points, and capturing over 700 prisoners, including commissioned officers. An official from General Lee, received late the says we drone the enemy from Turkey Hill, thereby gaining an important position. As night closed et during the day. It is reported that we took 800 prisoners. A officer, who left the front at one o'clock, says that General Lee's staff estimated the enemy's loss as great as that in the battle of the Wilderness, if not greater, while ours was miarty that visited Ashland, but by a separate detachment. What he came of the raiders is not known. A dispatch from Gen. Lee fully confirms the account we gave yesterday of Rosser's repulse of the enemy at Ashland. From the Southside. W
r had been sent forward to Butter, and all citizens within the military age, who had taken the oath of allegiance, had been put in service, and were performing guard duty in Norfolk and Portsmouth, the outer line of pickets being Yankees. A few Confederate prisoners at Point Lookout have been induced to take the oath, and were on guard duty also. Most of the large guns had been removed, and the Union men were all packed up, and waiting with anxiety to hear the result of the fighting between Lee and Beauregard, and Grant and Rutler. A few weeks since, Miss Fannie Cornick, of Princess Anne, was searched, and a letter found on her person, said to be written by Miss Moore, of Norfolk, to some friend in the Confederate army--The young ladies were tried, and have been sent to Fort Hatteras, to wash and mend for the prisoners at that place. The letter signed L Shepherd Moore, is published by order of the Provost Marshal of Norfolk in the Yankee paper of that city, and shows the spiri
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.
ining possession of this bridge, he might have passed the Chickahominy and established himself in McClellan's old fastnesses on this side. It was the object of General Lee to prevent him, and he accordingly took possession of and fortified the position formerly held by McClellan. The ground on which the battle was fought was the same with that on which the battle of' 62 was fought. But the positions were reversed, we holding McClellan's and Grant holding Lee's. According to the accounts of prisoners Grant on the night of Thursday caused a quart of whiskey to be distributed to each of the soldiers, and about four o'clock yesterday morning, having primed tht one o'clock the action ceased along the whole line, our troops having repulsed the enemy, who left several thousand behind him, dead or wounded, on the field. Gen. Lee afterwards rode over the field, and declared that the slaughter far exceeded that of the 12th of May. Many of the Yankees were so drunk that they tumbled over o
Gen. Lee. A gentleman of our acquaintance, who belongs to an ambulance corps, upon visiting a room in which there were seven or eight wounded patients, was struck with the gaiety of a soldier who had just had a leg amputated. Upon his expressin questioned as to the nature of the apprehension to which he alluded, he said it was that some accident might happen to Gen Lee.--Instantly, all the other wounded men chimed in, each one declaring that anything which had already happened, or could rmy, and they all declared that the sentiment was universal among the troops. 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 desirdoubt 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
