Gen. Pettigrew not dead.

From a flag of truce which communicated with the enemy on Friday we learn that Gen. Pettigrew was not killed as at first reported, but that he was wounded and a prisoner of war. His captures was swing to his own while wounded on the field, be commanded those who were hearing him off to return to their posts and leave him to his fate. His wound, although serious, is reported as doing well Col. Lightfoot and Lt. Col. Long, of the Twenty-Second North Carolina, were also supposed to be among the killed; but we have learned by the flag of truce that they were neither injured in the battle, and that they are now prisoners in the Federal army.
