became unmanageable, and finally falling on the Colonel, badly bruised him. The Colonel was wounded in the Wilderness battle, and had returned to the field only a day or so before. The division lost three hundred men in this engagement. The First and Third divisions, which were in support, lost about two hundred and fifty in killed and wounded from the effects of the rebel artillery. The wounded were all brought off, and are nearly all being cared for at City Point. Lieutenant-Colonel Warren, of the Thirty-sixth Missouri, lost his left arm while gallantly leading his regiment in the charge. Major N. H. Hamilton, of the Thirty-sixth Missouri, was severely wounded in the face, and Captain Lindley, of the same regiment, killed, Sergeant Bailey, of the Thirty-sixth Wisconsin, was killed, and about twelve of the men wounded. Sergeant Fuchs, of the Thirtieth Wisconsin, color-bearer, was badly wounded, (the third time for him in the present campaign). Our troops still
determined to dislodge them by a flank movement. Clingman's and Mahone's old brigade engaged them in front, while, by a circuitous route, Colquitt's (Georgia) brigade was thrown on their flank. The movement proved a brilliant success, and caused scarcely any loss to our troops. Colquitt's men were upon the Yankees almost before they were aware of such close proximity of the rebels, and surrender or fighting under fearful disadvantage was the alternative. Crawford's crack division, of Warren's (Fifth) corps, here fell a helpless victim to rebel strategy, and the greater part of two brigades — numbering over two thousand men--threw down their arms and surrendered. The prisoners were quickly placed under guard and sent to the rear, where they were formed into line and marched to General Hill's headquarters. The battle still progressed successfully until the enemy was driven back to the position from which he advanced in the morning. At dark, our lines were close up to his wo
From Petersburg. Petersburg, August 20--11 o'clock A. M. --Lieutenant-General A. P. Hill commanded our forces in the fight yesterday evening. Warren was strengthened by the Ninth corps. The enemy were driven about three-quarters of a mile in front and back about two miles on the flank. Twenty-two hundred prisoners, including nine commissioned officers, were captured. Night ended the fight, which was a very considerable affair. The fight has not been resumed thus far to-day. The enemy still hold possession of the Weldon railroad. Our losses are not heavy. General Clingman was wounded. Major Lawson, of the Fity-ninth Virginia, was killed. The enemy's loss in killed and wounded was unascertained. The Yankee General Crawford is reported by the prisoners as killed. There was the usual artillery duel between midnight and day between the lines in front of this city. No casualties are reported.
