The enemy's cavalry had tried to annoy his rear and flank, but had been run off, and he had recaptured five hundred of our men, two of them Colonels. The defeat of Banks in Louisiana. A Washington telegram says that a bearer of dispatches from Admiral Porter
ceived yesterday early in the day the gratifying news that Gen. Breckinridge had whipped the German Red Republican Gen. Sigel, in a fight which took place near New Market, in Shenandoah county. His forces must have been badly routed, as they are represented as fleeing from the field across the north branch of the Shenandoah, which was near at hand, and burning the bridge after them. Of the relative number of men engaged in the battle we are not in formed. But it must have been extraordinary if the enemy did not outnumber us.--Sigel's column was a part of the combined movement for our final subjugation, as was also Averill's. Both of them have been defeated, and thus falls three of the minor heads of the monster, Sheridan's raid constituting the third. The brave Confederates are lopping them off one after another. Let us hope that in a few days at least some of the larger ones, with more force and vitality, will fall to the ground and be crushed under the heel of the Confederacy.
this gallant little band retired with his face to the enemy, and at every feasible position maintained his ground, repulsing charge after charge, and finally discouraging the enemy to such a degree as to cause them to cease from the attack.

A scout who arrived at Washington from the front, Tuesday night (14th) says that Sheridan's cavalry force, which started out Thursday, on an Sheridan's cavalry force, which started out Thursday, on an extended raid, had not been heard from when he left; but it was the impression in the army that he had reached Charlottesville, on his way to Lynchburg. The rebel cavalry are not in a condition to seriously impede his successful progress, and he will probably reach the latter point with little or no fighting on the way. From Lynchburg, his movements will remain a mystery for the present at least. Another account says that Sheridan was moving on Gordonsville, to destroy railroad communications in that direction, whilst General Kantz was similarly occupied on the Southside, the object being to prevent the movement of supplies and reinforcements.
Arrival of prisoners. --During Saturday and yesterday Yankee prisoners, captured mostly in straggling squads from the north side of James river, were constantly coming into the city under the escort of Confederate guard. The number booked at the Libby yesterday afternoon reached considerably over a hundred, and when we last visited that prison the officers attached thereto were hourly expecting an arrival of five hundred more, taken by Gen. Wade Hampton in his encounter with Sheridan at Trevillian's, one day last week. It has been previously reported that these prisoners were carried to Lynchburg; but since then it has turned out that, in consequence of the movements of Hunter, it was unsafe to continue on with them to that place, and they were therefore taken to New Canton, a point on the James River and Kanawha Canal, and from thence shipped in four freight boats to this city.

But even by his own report it is evident that he f he retreated over the North Anna River at Minor's Bridge. It was a thoughtful provision of Gen. Sheridan to take ambulances with him. In these he brought away 377 of his wounded men. All the rest nds of the enemy. Gen. Lee's account of the affair represents it as being a complete defeat of Sheridan. It is certain that he suffered great loss, and was compelled to retreat, and entirely failed to accomplish the purpose of his expedition. Yet the country has been told to rejoice over Sheridan's brilliant success. Butler sent a bragging bulletin to the War Department, boasting that he hf the Hon.
