ken by the roar of cannon and the crash of musketry. Sheridan's Yankee cavalry force below Richmond have crossed the Chickahominy at Bottom's bridge, and it was rumored last evening that they were again advancing towards Richmond on some point on the Central Railroad. We could get no confirmation of this report. From Northern Virginia. Passengers by the Fredericksburg train last evening brought a report that a severe engagement took place yesterday morning on the right wing of Gen Lee's army, near Massaponax church, and that the enemy were twice handsomely repulsed by our forces under Ewell. No official information was received at headquarters here last night, of the reported engagement, but it was generally credited. The scene of the fight is located at Stanard's Mill, about sixteen miles from Fredericksburg. The victory in the Valley. Later advices from the Valley of Virginia make the victory of General Breckinridge over Sigel even more complete than fir
From General Lee's army. [from our own Correspondent.] Army of Northern Virginia, Spotsylvania C. H., May 11, 1864--5 P. M. My last letter to you bears date of Sunday, the 8th. At that time I wrote you from Orange Court-House. About 4 P. M. I left that point, following up Gen. Lee, who was moving closely in the rear of Gen. Grant. From that time until this I have been unremittingly active, and now propose to give you a brief sketch of the movements and doings of the two armies durTabernacle Church, turned to the right, and began moving on and towards Spotsylvania Court House. During Saturday night Gen. Lee discovered that a movement was on foot, and supposing it might be Grant's purpose to turn his flank, he sent forward a portion of Longstreet's forces, who began to move about 3 A. M of Sunday morning. About 10 o'clock Gen. Lee advanced skirmishers along the enemy's entire lines at the Wilderness, and found their breastworks abandoned and their rear protected by a rear

He went immediately to Gen. Lee and begged him to restrain himself, and not to think of exposing himself and the causthey would not budge an inch if he led them. Gen. Lee was at length prevailed upon to desist from t and was doing remarkably well when he left. Gen. Lee called to see him just before he was moved, asely the some circumstances. Heaven grant that Lee may not lose his left arm now, as he lost his ren. Longstreet had just been congratulated by Gen. Lee, Gen. Kershaw, and others, upon the complete army, was killed. At half-past 4 o'clock Gen. Lee determined to feel of the enemy and ascertainy the dense woods through which his line runs. Lee's position is equally satisfactory. Last nerates, on the contrary, never fought better--Gen. Lee had caused it to be circulated among them som
Rejoicing in Petersburg. Petersburg, May 17. --The enemy have gone from our front to his entrenchments at Bermuda Hundreds. The turnpike to Richmond is now open. Kants's raiders are eight miles this side of Jarratt's. There is general rejoicing here over Lee's victories.
hey are told, in orders from headquarters, that the rebels have been whipped in divers places — that Petersburg has fallen and Butler is besieging Richmond; while the troops under the Beast are informed, for the same reason, that Grant has whipped Lee! A Yankee Colonel, who was taken prisoner, gave an account of the preparation of one of these orders by Grant and Meade. Grant proposed to inform his men of the capture of Petersburg and of sundry victories over the rebels, and to add his felicitations upon the victory won the day before over Lee's left. Meade deeming it best to omit the victory "over the left, " suggested that as the army knew as much about that as Grant, it might throw doubt upon the balance of the story. The "Giant" acquiesced. Fraud is indeed a great agent of the invasion. We see a President of an immense people not hesitating blasphemously to call everybody to thanksgiving to God for events which he knows have not transpired; and the next day, in his vulg
