Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatchthe battle at Bethel Church.additional particulars. Yorktown, Va., June 14th, 1861. In the various letters written from Yorktown giving an account of the late battle at Bethel Church. I see no mention of the battalion that was first on the field that occupied Bethel a week before the battle was in the heated the engagement, and received the thanks of Col. Magruder himself for its mootness — I refer to the Virginia battalion, under command of our gallant Major E. B. Montague, consisting of the Halifax Light Infantry under Capt.

Colonel Magruder, in his official account of the battle, his done this battalion justice; but, as only a few will see this account, I ask, as a simple act of justice, that this be published Colonel Magruder, since the battle, is certain that we were attacked by upwards of five thousand men, and between three and four hundred of the enemy killed and wounded. As a piece of interesting news, of which you have not yet, I believe, become possessed, I will mention that, on the 12th, Captain Davis, Lieutenant Lea, and Dr. Martin, of the New York Firemen Zouaves, came with a flag of truce from General Butler to our out-post, to treat with Colonel Magruder in relation to their dead, wounded, and prisoners. The result of the interview has not transpired, except that one of their prisoners was exchanged for one of ours.
