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.
