oyant.Critical situation of the Yankee forces.&c., &c., &c., Since the issue of our paper yesterday no information has reached us of the transactions of our own and the enemy's forces calculated to discourage the hope that the grand army of McClellan is completely discomfited. The determined stands made by the Federal forces on Monday and Tuesday were only the last desperate struggles against ignominious capture or utter annihilation. Their condition is one of desperation, and it is but nnt of Richmond. View of the situation from the South side of the river — reinforcements. The Petersburg Express of yesterday has the following intelligence, which is of much interest: We have reliable information that a portion of McClellan's army sought safety in flight as far back as Monday afternoon. This we knew Monday night, and so stated yesterday, but further confirmation of this retreat is furnished in the following communication which Col. Pannill, the Provost Marshal of
t of the advance appears to have been to obtain a dry and healthy location for that portion of our army then encamped in a swampy and sickly region. In this General McClellan proved entirely successful, as but little more ground has to be gained in order to place our men beyond the effects of their previous unpleasant position. Thed and wounded in the action of Wednesday did not amount to over two hundred--the killed being exceedingly small — while that of the enemy was much greater. General McClellan conducted the affair in person, and his presence stimulated the valor of the men engaged. A dispatch received at the War Department yesterday afternoon from Gen. McClellan, states that the affair of yesterday was perfectly successful; that we hold the new picket line undisturbed, and that all is very quiet on the banks of the Chickahominy. The official lists of the rebel losses at the battle of Fair Oaks have been published. Eighty- five regiments and battalions in all were
Vehicles of all descriptions were busily engaged the whole of yesterday in conveying from the battle-field the many wounded Confederate soldiers, who were necessarily left behind in the onward march of our victorious columns. As fast as the brave fellows arrived, they were conveyed to the different hospitals, and every attention was bestowed on them that considerate kindness could suggest. The number of wounded Hessians left on our hands by McClellan is much larger than one would suppose. With heartless indifference, he seems to have left the disabled marauders to the mercy of a foe that he affected to despise. They come at an unfavorable moment for the display by us of any pregnant specimens of Southern humanity. One consolation must be found in the fact that they must share as we do, owing to the acts of the Government for which they fight.
and many of them talked of going right "on to Richmond," but finally concluded not to do it just then. Several officers soon visited Col. Forney, and finally Gen. McClellan came in.--Some of them were old schoolmates of Gen. John H. Forney, and learning that the Colonel was his brother, inquired much about him, and treated the Coison at Washington, seats himself in his prison Window of an evening, and pours forth "My Maryland" to the passing crowd, in defiance of jailors and guards. McClellan's army was about ninety thousand strong. It has been reduced more than twenty thousand by disease and battle. All the drilled troops are being removed from thefollowers in Congress, it has-fiercely demanded that rebel property shall be appropriated for the use of our army, and has more than a hundred times assailed General McClellan on account of his alleged leniency towards the enemy. The whole attack upon Gen. Blenker smells very much of political intrigue to raise Cari Schurz to the
