The same paper gives another account, from which we extract the following; Our men made more than a dozen charges into the midst of the rebel ranks, relying almost entirely upon the sabre, which they used with terrible effect. The enemy, on the other hand, repeatedly charged also, relying on their revolvers for the most part, however.--Both sides were repeatedly driven back in the course of the battle, though we succeeded in driving the rebels — Fitzhugh Lee's and Wade Hampton's divisions of cavalry, with artillery, all commanded by Major General J. E. B Stuart — back to a point about five miles southwest of where their-pickets were first encountered, where Pleasanton found the enemy so heavily reinforced with infantry and artillery as to make it prudent to return to this side of the river. This — the return — was commenced at about 4 P. M., Gen. Pleasanton bringing off about two hundred prisoners, his own wounded, and the bodies of his officers who had b

Mr. Davis, finding that ruse would not succeed, now announces the revocation of Mr. Moore's exequatur, but as Mr. Davis did not grant it, we presume Mr. Moore will simply laugh at his attempted revocation. The indecorousness of the whole thing is that, as in order to revoke the exequatur Mr. Davis must acknowledge its existence, he speaks of it as having been granted by a "former Government authorized to act as the agent of the State of Virginia," meaning the Government of the United State! Well done, Mr. Davis. Miscellaneous. A dispatch from Cincinnati says that Gen. Carter's forces have crossed over the Cumberland river and driven Pegram out of Monticello.

In some instances they have been shot at by parties concealed in the woods, and attempts have been made to deter the officers from the execution of their duties. The barn of Wm. H.

General Grant will make no further attack, at least at present, or rather direct assault, on the enemy's works all along the line. Advices have been received in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania, to the effect that Major-General Frank J. Herron has left St. Louis for below with a large force of troops. He left St. Louis with his full Staff on Thursday evening last. The attack on Charleston — official Inquiry.

We hear that among the casualties of that regiment were Colonel Davis, Captain Foots, company E, and Lieutenant Cutler, company A, killed, and Lieutenant Reeves, company C, and Lieutenant Epler, company I, mortally wounded. On the return to this side of the river the enemy skirmished frequently with our rear guard, doing us no damage to speak of, however. From Port Hudson. Advices per the Catawba state that reinforcements from Brashear City and other points, to the number of six thousand, reached Gen.

the North. We have received a copy of the Washington Chronicle, of Thursday, the 11th inst, one day later. It contains an account of the cavalry fight at Brandy Station. The Yankees were under Gen. Pleasanton, and crossed the Rappahannock in two columns — the right at Beverly's Ford, and the left at Kelly's Ford, six miles by, had been engaged and driven back three miles on the right and five miles on the left, with heavy loss. Our forces succeeded in forming a junction near Brandy Station at 2 o'clock, when the fighting of both columns under Buford and Gregg was very gallantly done. Not a single instance of misbehavior occurred. The grandir way out. Two regiments of Gen. Gragg's brigade, under Col. Wyndham and Col. Kilpatrick, had hot work all the morning, but drove the enemy from the river to Brandy Station. The rebels were numerically superior to us, including our small supporting force of infantry. Not withstanding this we drove them back handsomely, and capt

Wyndham, 1st New Jersey, not seriously; Major Morris, 6th Pennsylvania, wounded and missing, Lieut Col. Broderick and Major Still mire, New Jersey.
