From Petersburg. Petersburg, June 29. --A prisoner who was brought in to-day reports that a portion of our cavalry engaged the front of Wilson's cavalry at Dinwiddie Court House yesterday, in a hot engagement, in which the enemy's loss was 40 wounded. It was supposed from his statement to have been a Confederate success. It is also said that part of Wilson's force was at Lawrenceville, Brunswick county, last night, trying to get out towards the Weldon Railroad. There has been a cavalry fight below here to-day near Ream's Station, but the results are unknown. In front the situation is unaltered.
instead of meeting cavalry, they found the inevitable and ubiquitous Mahone supporting and sustaining the cavalry. Gen Mahone with Saunders's Alabama and Flanagan's Florida brigades, left camp about two o'clock on Wednesday morning, and by a rapid march reached Ream's Station about daylight. Here they quickly formed with Saunders's left resting on the railroad, and his right joining on to Finnegan, whose right rested on the stage road by Dinwiddie Court-House, to Lawrenceville, in Brunswick county. On the right of Finnegan, was Fitz Lee's cavalry. About daylight, or a little thereafter, the enemy's cavalry, principally Couch's brigade, advanced in line of battle. Gen M had intended to ambuscade the enemy, but by the neglect of an officer, the artillery were not instructed to reserve their fire, and so they opened upon the enemy as soon as they came in sight. The enemy did not advance very far, but reclad and staggered back, and finally retreat The enemy, finding, that we wer
A gallant Exploit. A correspondent of the Petersburg Express, writing from Burntville, Brunswick county, June 30th, gives the following account of the capture of a Lieutenant and thirty-one privates of the Yankee cavalry, by a Confederate officer and six citizens, armed with shot guns only: On the evening of Wednesday, the 22d instant, a party of Yankee cavalry, numbering thirty-two men, passed through the neighborhood of Red Oak, in Brunswick, and stopped at Mrs Nancy Mason's. Here they found Captain G D White, of the Boydton cavalry, who has been at home on furlough in consequence of a dangerous wound, received while gallantly leading his men in the right at Gettysburg. Capt White was on a visit to Mrs Mason, who is his grandmother. The Yankees called Captain White from the house, and threatened to take him along with them as their prisoner; but not having a spare horse, the Lieutenant in command (a scamp named Brooks, and a renegade from Halifax county, Va.,) gave

ence, has revealed to a Confederate officer a most extended programme which had been chalked out by Grant, but which, through the energy and vigilance of our troops, was happily frustrated. It is thus summed up by the Petersburg Express: This officer states that Wilson and Kantz were to effect a most thorough destruction of the Southside and Danville railroads, but were to part company this side of Danville. Wilson was to come down through the rich counties of Charlotte, Lunenburg, Brunswick, Mecklenburg, Greensville, and Sussex, stealing all the horses and negroes which could be found in his way, and again enter Grant's lines by way of Stony creek; and if this point proved impracticable, to come out where he entered, at Reams's Station.--Kantz was to proceed to Danville, from thence to Greensboro', then on to Raleigh, and thence along the Raleigh and Gaston Railroad to Weldon. At the latter place, the bridge was to be burned, and Kantz was then to make for the Black water, a
