General J. C. Sullivan sent the following to headquarters:

Major Cole's camp at Loudon Heights, Va., was attacked this morning. He fought gallantly and drove the attacking party off. I send you his report:

I have the honor to report that my camp was attacked this morning at about four o'clock, by Mosby and his command.

After a brisk fight of about one hour, they were repulsed and driven from the camp. Our loss is two men killed and thirteen wounded. Among the latter is Captain Vernon, seriously, and Lieutenant Rivers, slightly.

There are some missing, but it is impossible to give the exact number at present. The rebels left four dead in the camp--one captain, and one a lieutenant.

They left three prisoners in our hands, two of them wounded, and one a lieutenant.

--(Doc. 46.)

The United States bark Roebuck captured the rebel sloop Marie Louise while attempting to run out of Jupiter Inlet, Florida. She was of about eight tons register, and laden with three thousand pounds Sea Island cotton.--eighteen shells were thrown into the city of Charleston, S. C., from the National defences around that city.
