Brook (Indiana, United States) (search for this): article 1
morning as the divisions of Gen. Hill, engaged yesterday, were being relieved, the enemy advanced and created some confusion. The ground lost was recovered as soon as the fresh troops got into position, and the enemy driven back to his original line. Afterwards we turned the left of his fresh line and drove it from the field, leaving a large number of dead and wounded in our hands, among them Gen. Wadsworth. A subsequent attack forced the enemy into his entrenched lines on the Brook road, extending from Wilderness Tavern on the right to Trigg's Mill. Every advance on his part, thanks to a merciful God, has been repulsed. Our loss in killed is not large, but we have many wounded, most of them slightly, artillery being little used on either side. I grieve to announce that Lieutenant General Longstreet was severely wounded and General Jenkins killed. General Pegram was badly wounded yesterday. General Stafford, it is hoped, will recover. R. E. Lee.
South Carolina (South Carolina, United States) (search for this): article 1
t 12 o'clock yesterday the enemy having previously attacked Heth and Wilcox and driven them back, Longstreet planned and was in the act of executing a flank movement on the enemy's left wing, when, by the mistake of our men, he was fired upon. Lieut. Gen. Longstreet and staff were severely, though not mortally, wounded Gen. Longstreet in the shoulder, so say the surgeons with whom the Press correspondent conversed, and who examined his wound, and instantly killing Brig. Gen. Jenkins, of South Carolina. Our troops continued to press the enemy until about 4 o'clock, driving back the enemy's left and centre some two miles, our left standing fast in its position. Last night our men held possession of the enemy's battle-field on the left and centre capturing a number of the enemy's wounded and some of the dead. The enemy fought, yesterday, most obstinately in all parts of the line. Our success was very great, though not deemed decisive. The charge of Gordon's (Georgia) brigade

mportance to report on the Peninsula. The latest intelligence brought by a gentleman who yesterday morning left a point in New Kent, 22 miles from Richmond, confirms the report that there are no troops as high as that. The marauders who are in New Kent and vicinity were negro cavalry. They captured Mr. Ball, a citizen, and carried him off. They also visited Rural Shades, and destroyed the dwelling-house there. The residence of Theodore Lacy was burnt, and the dwelling of Allen Rome, in Gloucester, was also destroyed. Burning of a Railroad bridge. Stony Creek bridge, on the Petersburg and Weldon railroad, was burnt by the Yankees on Saturday night. This was done to prevent reinforcements being sent to Pickett at Petersburg, but it came too late. Death of Brig. Gen. Stafford. Brig. Gen. J. H. Stafford, who was wounded at the Wilderness, died yesterday morning at 10 o'clock, at the officers' hospital, in this city. He fell while gallantly leading his brigade, the 2d

nkins, of South Carolina. Our troops continued to press the enemy until about 4 o'clock, driving back the enemy's left and centre some two miles, our left standing fast in its position. Last night our men held possession of the enemy's battle-field on the left and centre capturing a number of the enemy's wounded and some of the dead. The enemy fought, yesterday, most obstinately in all parts of the line. Our success was very great, though not deemed decisive. The charge of Gordon's (Georgia) brigade Thursday is represented to have been the grandest of the war. Just before daylight some picket firing was heard in front of Hill's corps, and about 6 A. M. cannonading, lasting half an hour, was heard on Ewell's line. Our loss thus far is about 5,000, of whom a large proportion are slightly wounded.--The proportion of officers to privates killed and wounded is very much larger than in any previous fight. The Yankee Gen. Hayes is reported killed, and a dead Yankee

tured some 1,500, chiefly in front of Hill and Longstreet on Friday. Our men began yesterday evening to bury our own and the Yankee dead. Siegel occupied Winchester on Friday with 5,000 infantry and 2,000 cavalry. The country between the Rappahannock and the Potomac is reported to be filled with Yankee deserters. Gen. Longstreet's condition is much improved. He left for the interior to-day. Mosby captured two wagon trains, heavily laden, and horses attached, near Martinsburg, on Thursday. The latest from the front, at 12 M. to-day, represent the enemy falling back towards Fredericksburg, and our troops following them closely. Official Dispatches from Gen. Lee. The following official dispatches from Gen. Lee have been received at the War Department: Headq'rs Army Northern Va., May 6th, 1864. To the Secretary of War: Early this morning as the divisions of Gen. Hill, engaged yesterday, were being relieved, the enemy advanced and create

field extends over a space of eight miles in length. Rosser's cavalry fought the enemy all day, on our extreme right, losing heavily and gaining nothing important. Ewell captured two pieces of artillery in the fight of Thursday and 1,200 prisoners. The wounded are arriving here and receiving every attention. Gen. R. H. Anderson is now commanding in place of Longstreet. Two thousand well and wounded prisoners have been captured thus far. The battle-ground extends from the Rapidan river to the plank-road, and is about 25 miles east of this place. The battle is not yet ended. Weather hot and sultry. [Second Disptch.] Orange C. H., May 7. --Gordon's Georgia brigade and Johnston's N. C. brigade, of Ewell's corps, turned the enemy's extreme right flank, about four miles above Germanza ford, last evening, between sunset and dark, capturing four hundred prisoners, including Brig. Gens. Seymour and Shater. --The enemy, completely surprised, hastily fled on

ce repulsed. Owing to the difficulty in transmitting intelligence from the Southside during Friday and Saturday a number of extraordinary rumors were in circulation relative to affairs in that quarter. The rumors relative to the strength of the enemy's force were greatly exaggerated. The transports which had arrived at City Point up to Friday were one hundred and twenty-one in number. Not more than half of these had troops aboard, and the number of fighting men on the other side of James river is probably not more than 20,000. There is a good harbor at Port Walthall and on Friday the enemy landed there and proceeded to a point on the Port Walthall Railroad known as the Port Walthall Junction, five miles from Petersburg and two miles from Swift Creek bridge. At five o'clock two brigades of the enemy, which moved out from Bermuda Hundreds some time during Thursday night, and were slowly and cautiously advancing during the day yesterday, attempted to cross the field of Mrs. Howl

spondent.] Headquarters Longstreet's Corps, Friday, May 6th, via. Orange C. H., May 7th. --My two telegrams of this morning brought the history down to 2 P. M. Longstreet was wounded in the neck at 12 o'clock by the 6th Va. infantry, through mistake. At that hour he had completely turned the enemy's left; but during the delay that ensued after his wounding the enemy fell back behind their line of entrenchments, thrown up at the intersection of the road from Germanna Ford to Bowling Green, with the Orange and Alexandria Plank road. There he had massed heavy forces, and having been driven elsewhere, he made a heavy effort to hold the cross roads as his only salvation. At 4 o'clock an effort was made by us to carry this point, which was successful; but the force employed was too weak to hold it. Our casualties do not exceed 6,000, most of them being but slight wounds. Owing to the thick woods in which the enemy made the attack, his loss is much heavier. We

G, of the City Battalion, Capt. Bass, was engaged with the dismounted cavalry in making the capture. While the Suwanee was burning two gunboats appeared around the bend in the river and commenced shelling our men, who were crossing Pickett's field with the prisoners, but without any effect. Repulse of the enemy on the Blackwater. A body of Yankee cavalry, under the command of the notorious Col. Speare, attempted to cross the Blackwater river yesterday at Broadwater Bridge, near Ivor.--They were handsomely repulsed by a portion of Gen. Clingman's brave North Carolina troops, and retired out of sight. Our scouts from that section report this body of cavalry as being quite formidable in numbers — some estimating it as high as 3,000. At last accounts they were heading around towards the source of the Blackwater, in Prince George, and may endeavor to effect a junction with the enemy now at City Point. We fear that the Sussex and Prince George people will suffer greatly fro
