ay evening there was some cavalry fighting near Guiney's Station, but it amounted to very little. [Second Dispatch.] Headq'rs Army Northern Va.,May 20th. Up to three o'clock yesterday nothing of interest occurred. About that time General Ewell moved forward in force an armed reconnaissance toward the enemy's right flank. About five o'clock our skirmishers engaged those of the enemy a little west and north of the road leading from Spotsylvania Court-House to Fredericksburg. The enable fight ensued, and at one time our line of skirmishers had possession of the enemy's wagon train, but were compelled to relinquish it, not however, until we had brought off some of their mules. The fight lasted until 9 o'clock at night, when Ewell fell back to his original position, having lost in the engagement about 150 wounded, about 30 killed, and a few missing. The prisoners report the enemy's loss much heavier. We captured about 100 prisoners. Not a gun has been fired to-day.

Of course Gen Long, formerly of Gen Lee's Staff, and now commanding the artillery of Ewell's corps, was not sloEwell's corps, was not slow in returning this early morning salutation of the Federal army. For nearly two hours the cannonade equalled that at Gettysburg.

It is a disgrace to subject Lee and Longstreet, Ewell, Gordon, Kershaw, and thousands of others, who have fought and bled as men seldom ever fought and bled before, to the ann

At the end of this time the enemy's dead strewed the ground in front of our earthworks, and we had captured some seventy prisoners. The enemy then retired. Shortly afterwards a vigorous cannonade was commenced by the enemy on our right and centre, which, lasted for two hours or more, our batteries replying spiritedly, and giving the enemy "as good as they sent" Our losses in the engagement in front of Ewell's lines were not over thirty, whilst that of the enemy is, estimated at fully fifteen hundred. Last night the enemy abandoned this part of the line, burying the arms which they could not take off — To-day our men are busy exhuming them. Gentlemen who have ridden over the field say that the enemy have left about two hundred unburied dead on the field over which they fought on yesterday. The enemy seem now to be massing everything on their left, (our right) as if concentrating to resist
