ut little of his artillery to play. Our loss it, prisoners very slight, and we took but few. I regret that my engagements are such that it will be impossible for me to continue my correspondence. This will be but little loss to you, however, as you already have a very faithful correspondent in the field. Besides, I hope the campaign of 1864, and the war itself, is fact drawing to a close. Sallust. [from our own correspondent.] Army of Northern Virginia,Near Gaines's Mill, June 3, 1864. The immortal Second Corps of this army yesterday achieved a success which is second to none that has crowned the Confederate arms during this campaign. By a preconcerted arrangement a flank movement was undertaken yesterday evening upon the enemy's right wing, and most successfully executed. About three o'clock our troops moved forward, Gordon having the lead. Gen. G., by actual experiment, ascertained that a swamp was passable for his troops, and on it he moved and by it passed

e 5th--1 P. M. Major General Diz: A dispatch from Gen Grant's headquarters, dated half-past 8 o'clock last night, has been received. It states that about seven P M yesterday (Friday, 3d June,) the enemy suddenly attacked Smith's brigade, of Gibbon's division. The battle lasted with great fury for half an hour. The attack was unwaveringly repulsed. Not one word of the events of that bloody Friday morning. If the Yankee nation ever learns that at five o'clock on Friday, the 3d of June, 1864, Grant made a furious assault upon our lines, and after a murderous conflict of five hours duration was finally repulsed, with a loss of at least 15,000 men; that he left his dead and wounded in our front for days, not daring to attempt to remove them openly, and basely refusing to send a flag of truce lest it should be construed into an acknowledgment of defeat; and that those wounded men lay there until many of them died, and those dead until the stench from their bodies became intole

G. Clarence Churchill et al.--The point in controversy in this action was, substantially, whether or not certain taxes imposed by the city of Utica upon the stockholders of the Second National Bank of Utica upon their several shares in said bank were legally imposed, and whether payment of the same could be legally enforced. The Court held unanimously (Judge Porter not sitting in the case) that the interest of the stockholders in the national banks organized under the act of Congress of June 3, 1864, are legally taxable for State and county and municipal purposes, pursuant to the laws of the State; that the objection that these moneyed institutions are instrumentalities of the General Government for the execution of its constitutional powers, and are exempt from State taxation upon the principle by which the late Bank of the United States was adjudged to be exempt, does not apply where, as in these cases, the tax, instead of being assessed against the corporation, is against the indi
