1st ult.) With a feet explanatory notes they are more intelligible. For instance, the cavalry division of Wilson, which was to destroy the railroad bridges on the Fredericksburg road is the one which was so badly whipped by Rosser and others of Fitz Lee's brigades. The "pitching in" of Warren, Wright, and Hancock, which took place at nightfall, is already known to the Confederates as having resulted in a bloody repulse. The "indications" were that the Confederates had "fallen back south of thckahominy." The following are the dispatches: War Department, Washington,May 31st, 4 P. M. Major Gen. Dix: We have dispatches from Gen Grant down to 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon. There seemed, the dispatch says, to be some prospect of Lee's making a stand North of the Chickahominy. His forces were on the Mechanicsville road, South of the Totopotomy creek, and between that stream and Hawes's shop, his right resting on Shady Grove.--Dispositions for an attack were being made by Gen
From Gen. Lee's Army. Battle Ground Near Gaines's Mill, June 6--7 P M. --Last evening Grant send a flag of truce proposing that in the intervals of the fight unarmed parties should be permitted to bury the dead and care for the wounded. This Gen. Lee is understood to have declined, but intimated his willingness to enterGen. Lee is understood to have declined, but intimated his willingness to entertain a regular flag of truce for these purposes. This morning Grant sent another flag, saying he would avail himself of the understanding to send out unarmed parties to bury the dead and care for the wounded.--Gen. Lee promptly replied, showing that Grant had misunderstood his letter. Here the matter rests. The heavy fiGen. Lee promptly replied, showing that Grant had misunderstood his letter. Here the matter rests. The heavy firing last night amounted to nothing. Last night the enemy abandoned our left and part of our centre, apparently in great haste. Early has followed them ten miles to-day, capturing 69 prisoners, who say that Grant has gone to the White House because his men will not fight. The impression here, however, is that Grant is making fo

The affair in the Valley, though annoying and distressing, will not have the slightest influence upon this campaign, which is to be decided here and not there. It was designed no doubt to cause a diversion, but it is not of magnitude sufficient to cause such a diversion as will influence the result here.--Even the destruction of the tunnel would not relax the hold of Lee upon Grant. The news, however, that Staunton had been captured made all the old women in trowsers croak like a concert of frogs yesterday. We have within the last three weeks fought eight or ten of the bloodiest battles on record, and come off victorious every time, and the people whose soldiers have done this are to be conquered, for so these interesting representatives of both sexes assure us, by seven or eight thousand Dutchmen capturing Staunton and destroying the public buildings and s

Day after day he attacked his posn a day's march when he arrived at the direct road once more, and there he found Lee again in his front strongly posted, and evincing no disposition to get out of thved to "fight it out on this line, if it took him all summer," he again attacked Lee, and was repulsed with unheard-of slaughter. Being utterly unable to force his have done without fighting at all, and upon reaching the direct road again found Lee in his front. Grown wiser by an experience which had cost him half his army, he sided off this time without fighting at all, and is now in front of Lee, trying to reach at all, and is now in front of Lee, trying to reach the James river, which,Lee, trying to reach the James river, which, in the first instance, he might have reached without bloodshed. Here we see the blunder of Massena, and the very manœuvre by which he hoped to retrieve it, repeate
