The Yankee losses in officers.

--The Yankees lost in the engagement of Wednesday, Major-General Mansfield killed, and Generals Hooker, Harrsuff, Duryee, Richardson, Edgwick, French, Sumner, Dana, Mesgher, Richetts, Weber and Rodman wounded. The following is a dispatch from Hooker to McClellan after he was wounded:

A great battle has been fought and we are victorious I had the honor to open it yesterday afternoon, and it continued until ten o'clock this morning, when I was wounded and compelled to quit the field.

The battle was fought with great violence on both sides.

The carnage has been awful.

I only regret that I was not permitted to take part in the operations until they were concluded, for I had counted on either capturing their army or driving them into the Potomac.

The Herald chronicles the capture of General Howell Cobb and his staff. It reports that Gen. Cobb is wounded and has been sent to Frederick.
