A brilliant action.
--One of our Peninsular correspondents (W. H. I) sends us a description of a recent successful engagement at Lee's Store, near Newport News, of which we have already published full accounts.
We give the conclusion of the letter:
"It affords us great pleasure to say that our Captain
, T F. Goods
, displayed the highest gallantry, leading his men, regardless of his own life, into a perilous position, at the same time acting with all the coolness of a veteran commander; and he, with his men, without detracting from the merits of others, deserve all the glory which could accrue from so signal a victory over a treacherous foe concealed in ambush."
The writer also speaks highly of the gallantry of Maj. Hood
and Capt. Phillips
, who were prominent in the action.
