The engagement on the 18th. Headquarters 53d Reg't Va. Vols., 4th Brigade, Huger's Division, June 24th, 1862. To the Editors of the Dispatch: In your editorial of the 19th inst., relative to an engagement of our forces with the enemy of June the 18th inst., you stated that the 9th Virginia regiment attacked the enemy, and was gallantly supported by the 14th and 53d Virginia regiments. Believing that you did not mean to misrepresent facts, please allow me a place in your columns, in order that the public may know who it was that engaged the enemy on that occasion. The 53d regiment was stationed on the Richmond and York River Railroad on the morning of the 18th inst. Nothing of unusual interest occurred up to half-past 5 o'clock P. M., except the occasional firing of picket guns, when all at once our outpost pickets were driven in, and in a few moments the enemy, advancing at double-quick, in column of companies, attacked our whole line, which was extended from the Willi
g, and answering questions with an indifference almost amounting to stupidity. Jim, also under the medium height, black, about 18 years old, with a round and plump face. These were hired from Redwood & Keach, and belong to Mr. Chilton, of Lancaster, Va. Joshua, a boy about 16 years old, black, with large eyes, and hair closely shaved. Hired of Hector Davis, of Richmond. My own negroes had a variety of clothing, but will probably put on soldiers' old clothes, which have been very plenty of late near me. There is no sort of doubt they are alming for the Yankee camps, and will probably attempt to cross the Chickaherainy near Meadow Bridges. I will pay one hundred dollars each for the delivery to me, or for securing in any jail in Virginia so that I get them again, of Jeff, and Fox, and ten dollars each for Oscar and Jim, and am authorized by Mr. Davis, agent, to offer fifty dollars, in like manner, for Joshua.
