Bossieux, southwest corner of 19th and Franklin, was struck by lightning, but fortunately sustained no further damage than the knocking off of a quantity of slate from the roof. The building is highroofed, with a pointed gable, and is unprotected by a lightning-rod. Several ladies in the house at the time were very much frightened, but no one was hurl, or received any shock.

On Sunday, little was done except heavy skirmishing between the opposing forces. Our troops fell back during the night from the scene of Saturday's engagement, and the enemy on Sunday afternoon advanced their lines some few hundred yards.--Their pickets at one time occupied the houses of Dr. Bossieux and Oscar Pegram, one mile distant from Peebles's farm, but were shelled out by our artillery. The Yankees, on Sunday, took a portion of our picket line near W. W. Davis's house, three- quarters of a miles west of the Weldon railroad, capturing twenty prisoners. In the afternoon they were driven back and our line re-established. The loss on our side on Thursday, Friday and Saturday is estimated at five hundred, and that of the enemy at five thousand.

Bossieux, Mr. Schonberger, (wagonmaster,) Dr. Harris, (surgeon in the Confederate army,) and Dr. Coakley, (also surgeon in the army,) testified that they identified the horse as one ridden by Isaac N. Cocke, as a courier, during the campaign below Richmond. This closed the testimony for the Commonwealth. Witnesses for the defence were then sworn. Dr. W. W. Parker, captain of a battery of artillery during the war, until he was promoted, testified that Dr. Wooldridge was a lieutenan
