They all bring hopeful accounts of the situation of affairs on the lines, and our people have abundant cause for encouragement in the future prospect. A bloody battle may occurred any memant, of which the constant skirmishing would seem to be the precursor, or (according to the opinion of many persons) Grant may seck to avoid a collision on the present lines by making a movement towards the Peninsula, taking West Point for his base of operations. The second train lest evening brought down one hundred and sixty Yankee prisoners, captured, we understand, on Monday evening. They were sent to the Libby.--These captured by Mahone on Tuesday were expected by another train. An affair in Charles City county.

day there was considerable skirmishing on our right, and slight skirmishing on our left. During the evening, Mahone, commanding Anderson's division, repelled an attack of the enemy on the left, and in turn charged them, capturing some prisoners.
