General Pettigrew's Brigade. Camp Four Miles From Richmond, June 7th, 1862. To the Editors of the Dispatch: The 4th brigade, under the gallant Pettigrew, bore an active part in the fight of 31st. It was a part of the left wing in the attack, Longstreets forces being on the right. We entered the fight with an enemy fleeing before us, and had begun to think it a matter of course that he should fly when we presented ourselves.-- So he did, too, till he reached his entrenchments, and we, hot in pursuit, felt into an ambuscade. Which resulted disastrously. We marched from our camp on the Meadow Bridge road. Saturday morning. Wading through mud and water, we reached the field near Gen. Magruder's present headquarters, at about two o'clock, where we rested till five. The order "forward" was never halted by any troops with more welcome than by the 4th brigade at this time. Never was it obeyed with more spirit and alacrity. Whiting's brigade was ordered in advance of us.

Colonel Rates's regiment at thebattle of Shiloh. [from an Occasional correspondent.] Montgomery, Ala., June 7, 1862. While Beauregard and I were gaining that brilliant victory at Corinth, without fighting or letting the enemy or our own army know anything about it, I was gathering materials for a history of the battle of Shiloh from some of the heroic actors and survivors of that bloody, brilliant day. I am not joking about Beauregard's "victory," because the retreat was a great triumph, if measured by its success, and the injury and loss inflicted on the enemy, which some of them, in spite of Halleck's lies, have had the grace to confess. We certainly "surprised" them, as well as ourselves. We lost some of our sick, who, in consequence of the "fall back." of course had a "relapse. " But, as to Shiloh, many incidents we hear daily which illustrate the undying (?) devotion of our soldiers to our holy cause, and prove how idle is the empty hope of Northern hordes to con
