The battles before Richmond.

To the Editor of the London Times:
sir: The following is a correct list of military supplies and prisoners taken in the late battles before Richmond: Eighty large guns, two hundred spiked guns, (destroyed,) one thousand seven hundred mules, two thousand five hundred horses, sixty-two thousand stand of arms, six million dollars' worth of various stores, the balloon, with all its tackle; two major-generals, six brigadier-generals, thirteen colonels, one hundred and eighty commissioned officers, eleven thousand prisoners.

This statement is taken from a private letter of a confederate officer, written to a friend in this city.

I am, sir, yours, etc.,

Paris, August 6.
