r points where the enemy and Richmond are more accessible, and success more certain. Most assuredly to effect such an important change in the relative position of contending forces, without a move, and perhaps disastrous conflict, must have called forth the highest powers of a great General, or it must have resulted from the weakness of the enemy. One or the other cause gave to our arms this fortunate escape from disaster and, perhaps, destruction. To-day the old bridge across Hampton Creek was rebuilt, and a pontoon bridge was laid across near to it. A force of cavalry arrived at Hampton about noon to-day. A large number of troops are in camp about two miles this side of Newport News to-night. A large baggage train is now at Hampton. Gen. Burnside is now at Fortress Monroe, and there is some talk of his taking command of the army now in command of Gen. McClellan.

Yesterday morning, while Dr. Warren, surgeon in charge, was making his usual rounds, Rotand assaulted him with a large knife, slightly wounding his hand and inflicting another wound just above the jugular vein in his neck. He then turned upon Pat Maury, one of the nurses, who came to the aid of Dr. Warren, stabbing him so severely in three places that but faint hopes are entertained of his recovery. It was believed that he would die last night. He next attacked Mr. S. B. Bradley, one of the ward masters, cutting three og, nothing in his appearance or action indicating that anything was the matter with him. All of a sudden a fit of desperation seemed to seize him, as if he were possessed of the devil. But for Dr. Warren's coolness in getting the patients out of his way he would doubtless have slain several of them in their helpless condition.

After this he wounded a Mr. Bruns, another nurse, but very slightly, however.
