Fortress Monroe (Virginia, United States) (search for this): article 10
Fall Particulars up to Monday Afternoon. The Northern press continue to receive letters from the army of the Potomac, but what they relate is not very clear or satisfactory. A correspondent of the Philadelphia Press, writing from Fortress Monroe on Monday afternoon, says: The affair of Saturday last partook more of the nature of a battle than the engagements of Thursday or Friday. Gen. Fitz John Porter has covered himself with glory. He selected a very strong position, and, y, but by what means I am not at liberty to publish.

An immense fleet is still behind — in all not less than 500 sail. There was a prize for which the rebels struck at the White House, and which eluded them completely. Probably not to exceed $100,000 worth of property was destroyed to prevent its falling into the enemy's hands, consisting of whiskey, pork, corn, locomotives, and a small number of arms.

Chickahominy (Virginia, United States) (search for this): article 10
a dispatch from a high source acknowledges that the change of line had been attended with "a serious reverse." Of what took place on Saturday we have absolutely not a word. The best informed are, however, not without apprehensions, and await tidings with no little anxiety. Others take a hopeful and more confident view, from the last that the change of line by McClellan, though with some serious consequences to himself, has divided the enemy by placing some 30,000 on the left bank of the Chickahominy, with the bridges destroyed, and no means of obtaining supplies. What his theory is encouraging, it is not to and any, great degree of confidence, on place the rebels have unquestionably been recently reinforced. We have no tidings of what was McClellan's loss though where is some ... he has succeeded, but they can be traced to no trustworthy source.

otives were blown up. This was a great loss, but it was enhanced by the destruction of stores, &c., at the White House--everything there being in flames. Elegant ambulances and loaded baggage wagons were rolled down to the river bank, and there being no time to burn them, they were cast into the river. I embarked with many others on board of the John Brooks, but owing to the fact that our vessel was too large to move down the river in safety at night we dropped anchor in sight of White House Point. The houses burned on all night, and the scene presented was one of the grandest I ever beheld. The rebels were not in eight on Sunday morning when we moved down the river. The gunboats dropped down with us some miles, and anchored under a bluff, so as to allow the rebels a chance to come as far east as they chose. A boat sent up to communicate with Gen.
