Chesterfield (Virginia, United States) (search for this): article 1
The War news. No startling news was received yesterday from any direction. The two armies on the Southside remain in the positions held for several days, no new movement has taken place, and perfect quiet prevails. The Yankee gunboats still infest the river, but seem to have suspended their waste of ammunition in shelling the woods. Fort Clifton and other points on the shores of the James and the Appomattox. Beast Batler, pent up in a narrow ship of land in the county of Chesterfield, has ample time to send lying dispatches to Washington of the extent of his operations; but should he attempt to widen his sphere of action by another advance upon Gen Beauregard, he will doubtless find that officer ready to meet him.--Meantime the people must be patient. Exciting news cannot be constantly coming, and the present full in events will prevent a surfer of the popular appetite when the storm breaks loose afresh. From Gen. Lee's army.

We lost a sun, Battery E, of the 3d New York, lost one of their twenty pounders by the destruction of their houses, and the and den approach of the enemy upon them through the fog. One line was viridin to the dreadful pressure, when to ! the battle is renewed with increased intensely on the extreme right. Col. Drake's brigade has arrived, and the 112th New York is chastising the enemy and coming to the rescue of Hookman. Most of Burke's artillery was now ordered to the rear, and was parked beyond Palmers creek, about a mile and a quarter off. Artillery could not be need, so dease was the fog, and this fact is the explanation of the disposition of our cannon. There was a full in the strife now. Our troops had changed their positions rendering the advantages hitherto derived by the enemy from the fog useless. It was now about six o'clock. The rattle of skirmishing still continued and spread more generally along the whole

A letter dated Spotsylvania, the 19th, gives an account of the attack made by Swell on that day. Between four and five o'clock this afternoon desultory firing was heard on the Fredericksburg read, about a mile in Tyler's rear. it was ascertained that the enemy had to lowed clash in the rear of our corps, and had actually thrown Rodes's division, of Ewell's corps, into Tyler's rear, and were emerging from the woods into the wagon road Long trains, loaded with ordained and commissary stores, had been passing all day, but fortunately none were within reach at the moment. Agap in a train coming to the front was all that saved some of the wagons from capture. The train was completely cut in two by the rebel column.

Gen. Sherman is in possession of Kingston, Rome. Cassville and the line of the Etowan. The army had heavy skirmishing with the enemy all the way from Resaca. The railroad and telegraph have been repaired to the present position of the army. The troops are in good condition and spirits. Johnston is believed to be at Atlanta. Five hundred and thirteen prisoners, captured at Resaca arrived here yesterday and to-day. Among them are thirteen officers, belonging to Polk's, Hardee's, and Hood's corps. They will be sent North to morrow. Hugh Trally a native of Ray county, Tenn, was hung to day by order of the military commandant, charged with bush whacking and murdering Union citizens. Trally was captured in Waite county, East Tennessee, where he was acting as guide to the rebel General Wheeter. He betrayed no emotion on the scaffold and avowed that he died a true rebel soldier, and not guilty of shedding innocent blood. The river is three feet deep on the shoals and i

M.--The losses in the fight last evening are estimated at between five and six hundred and are confined mainly to few regiments The First Maryland veteran regiment were returning from their furlough home, and found themselves under fire befs concealed foe. The veterans were soon engaged with their old enemies, and assisted materially in breaking the rebel line and clearing the woods. This regiment lost fifty killed and wounded out of three hundred. The latest telegram dated May 20th, says: The position occupied by Lee is a vast entrenched camp. Its natural strength has been increased by the creation of fortifications, which were built long ago in anticipation of their need. Lee manifests no disposition to come out o

The Herald is full of accounts of the battles of Wednesday and Thursday, which are of very little interest to the Confederate reader as they are a batch of lies, with hardly a show of truth to relieve their monotony. of Wednesday's fight the correspondent says: While the rest of the army moved in force upon the enemy's line our corps holding the right, was to make a demonstration upon the enemy's left. The troops were disposed in line of battle, with Potter's division holding the extremes right, Crittenden's division the centre, and Wileax's division the left, in contiguity with the right of Warfen's corps. Each division constituted by f a column of attack, with the intention of assaulting the one my's line at three different points. The regiments of each division were ed in same cases three, and in others four, regiments forming the front lines.

Tyler's division was precipitated on the rebel column as imperiously as the nature of the ground permitted, and after a sharp skirmish the latter were driven from the ground with seriousness The 1st Maine heavy artillery regiment, eighteen hundred strong and fighting as infantry, charged on the rebel line gallantly and swept everything before them after a sharp contest. Our loss has not been ascertained, but this regiment appears to have suffered most. A part of Hancock's corps was marched back to Tyler's support just at dark; but the rebels were not found in force. It was probably a dash of theirs to annoy us by cutting our communication, with the possible hope of capturing a few wagons and stores.
