o or three to one of ours killed and wounded. At this date, though, it is impossible to obtain anything like a correct estimate. It may be observed, though, that four-fifths at least of our casualties are from wounds, and those principally in the hands, and limit. Very few severely wounded have yet reached here. Over 2,000 wounded have reached here since the first day's fight, and as many more are on the way. Among the wounded, officers here are Major Generals Pender, Heth, Brig! Gens. G. T. Anderson, of Georgia, Scales, of North Carolina, and Jenkins. Gen. Hood was severely wounded in the arm by the fragment of a shell, but fortunately the wound does not endanger the arm. He was struck while going into action on the right, Thursday. Gen. Trimble lost the leg in which he was once wounded before. None of these officers, I am pleased to state, are seriously wounded. Gens. Garnett, Kemper, Armistead, and Barksdale are undoubtedly killed. The three first belonged to Pickett's div
ired by his courage and capacity as an officer were only equalled by the esteem and respect entertained by all with whom he was associated, for the noble qualities of his modest and unassuming character. Brig. Gens. Barksdale and Garnett were killed, and Brig. Gen. Semmes mortally wounded while leading their troops with the courage that always distinguished them. These brave officers and patriotic gentlemen fell in the faithful discharge of duty, leaving the army to mourn their loss and emulate their noble examples. Brig. Gens. Kemper. Armistead, Scales, G. T. Anderson, Hampton, J. M. Jones, and Jenkins, were also wounded. Brig. Gen. Archer was taken prisoner. Gen. Pettigrew, though wounded at Gettysburg, continued in command until he was mortally wounded near Falling Waters. The loss of the enemy is unknown, but from observation on the field, and his subsequent movements, it is supposed that he suffered severely. Respectfully submitted, (Signed,) R. E. Lee, Gen'l.
Justice, made an adverse report upon the resolution to exclude from the rights of citizenship persons holding any office, or voluntarily containing under any usurped Government of the State. On motion the resolution was recommitted. Mr. Buford, from the Committee on Banks, submitted a report, which was laid on the table, asking to be discharged from the further consideration of a resolution as to the expediency of causing the banks to redeem their currency in Confederate notes. Mr. Anderson reported a bill from a special committee to whom was referred the memorial of the mechanics of Richmond, to regulate the prices of all products of the State, and all merchandize sold therein. Senate bill to increase the pay of certain officers of Government, which was under consideration yesterday when the morning hour expired was taken up, and after some discussion was recommitted to the Committee on Finance. The order of the day, the bill to reorganize the militia, was taken u

[Second Dispatch] Russellville, Jan. 19. --There is but little doubt that the enemy intended, by his recent demonstration, to force Gen. Longstreet out of Tennessee by occupying all the country capable of sustaining an army, in which he totally failed, in consequence of the promptness with which he was met by our troops, which he was evidently unprepared for, as has been shown by his rapid retreat. They are supposed to have withdrawn from Strawberry Plains, and the country, with the exception of the vicinity of Knoxville, will be once more freed from their presence. The loss on either side is small. The Federal removed seventy-five wounded from Dandridge, the enemy retreating towards Knoxville rapidly, and closely pursued by our cavalry. Lt. Col. Blackey, of the cavalry, was wounded; Col. Clark, of Hampton's Legion, killed; Lieut. Fouchee, A. D. C. to Gen. G. T. Anderson, badly wounded.

they held with great pertinacity. The enemy were, however, driven from point to point until nearly night, when a very strong force of them met some brigades of Anderson's division, of A. P. Hill's corps, driving back one of them and king another. Backs dale's brigade, of McLaws's division, was also driven back at the same time two pieces of artillery, several hundred prisoners, and two stands of colors, with heavy loss, however. Major General Hood was severely wounded, as was Brig. Gen. G. T. Anderson, of Hood's division. Brig. Gen. Barksdale, of McLaws's di of the same division, was mortally wounded, but has since died, and fully one half of the fiethe centre, and only a part of his corps was actively engaged. Late in the afternoon of this day, whilst Lieut. General Longstreet's corps and a portion of Major Gen. Anderson's division were assaulting the enemy's left, Major Gen. Pender having ridden to the extreme right of his command to put them in the fight, should the opport

Anderson's and leaking's of Fields's division; Mahone's and Davis's of R. F. Anderson's division, and Wofford's and perhaps two others of Kershaw's division.--Anderson Gregg, and Law, of Fields's division, and Mahone, of Anderson's division, moved forward in the form of the letter V, with the sharp point towards the enemy. G. T. Anderson, known in the corps as "Tiger Anderson," formed the apex of the line, and succeeded in reaching the enemy's entrenchments, two of his men falling within the wAnderson," formed the apex of the line, and succeeded in reaching the enemy's entrenchments, two of his men falling within the works. On the left Ewell was equally successful. The result of the attack or reconnaissance was the discovery that Grant had been driven back a mile and a half, that he had thrown up a strong line of entrenchments in front of Brock's road, and that his left wing rested upon a deep cut in the railroad, along which he had posted a
