Patton, deceased, who is also a graduate in military science, and an officer of high courage and intelligence. The prisoners we have taken recently report that the Federals have been contemplating an attack upon both Mason's and Munson's Hills, and I have just learned that a Confederate soldier, belonging to a Maryland regiment, deserted to Washington city a few days ago, and informed the enemy of the condition of things at the latter place, which doubtless led to the advance against it, of which you will be informed before this reaches you. They attacked us with three pieces of artillery, which we forced them to withdraw fro the fire of a single piece belonging to the Washington Battery, without having a man killed or even injured. The enemy lost several. We have strong picket guards below Mason's, and from the most advanced posts numb
