The flag was captured by the 93d New York, Col Crocker. Thirteen of the captured guns have been brought to Gen. Grant's headquarters, and others are placed in different positions in the rear. They are excellent pieces, in good condition, and very similar in appearance to our own. Harlow's division, of the second corps, performed a brilliant feat this mor

Grant strove hard to hold us to other parts of the furage and resolution worthy of a better cause; Grant seemed to have breathed into his troops somewhength of their muskets.
