At a late hour last night we learned some further particulars of the fight on Monday.

Gen. Early is mortally wounded.

Gen. Anderson, of North-Carolina, we believe, killed.

Col. Mott, of Mississippi, killed.

Gen. Raines, slightly wounded.

Capt. Echols, of Lynchburgh, slightly wounded.

Capt. Irwin, of Scales's North-Carolina regiment, wounded.

The First Virginia regiment was badly cut up. Out of two hundred men in the fight, some eighty or ninety are reported killed or wounded.

Colonel Kemper's regiment suffered terribly, though we have no account of the extent of the casualties.

We learn that Gen. Magruder has been for several days quite sick at Westover, on James River.

The enemy had not occupied Jamestown at six o'clock on Tuesday evening, but were in large force at Grove wharf and King's mill. They are also understood to be landing forces at West-Point.

The Virginia (No. 2) was passed on James River yesterday, and will be at Richmond to-day.

We have conflicting reports of the fight at Barhamsville yesterday, and prefer to wait for an official statement before giving publicity to rumors.
