ain give back. Another stand was made by our forces on the ground where the infantry first became engaged during Hampton's fight on the first of August, and here a severe fight took place, in which artillery, musketry, and carbines were freely used. At this time it was discovered that a column of at least two brigades of cavalry were moving on our right flank by way of Stevensburgh toward Culpeper Court-House. While the artillery on the left showed that the enemy, who were moving on the Rixeyville road, were nearly at the Court-House, our forces, of course, were compelled again to give back, and this time the Court-House fell into the hands of the enemy. In the fight made at this point, Colonel Beale, Ninth Virginia, was wounded slightly in the leg. At this time a train of cars was at the Court-House bringing off the plunder of our people. This was fired upon some three or four times, and though the shells exploded just above the cars, scattering the fragments over them, yet no da

iles, bivouacked two miles north of Spotsylvania courthouse. Next day, after a march of twenty-one miles, turning to the right at Verdiersville, in order to cross the Rapidan at Racoon or Sommerville ford, we bivouacked near Old Verdiersville. After marching about four miles on the 6th, I received orders to halt and wait further orders. Resuming the march on the 7th, we crossed the Rapidan at Sommerville ford, passed through Culpeper courthouse, and bivouacked four miles beyond, on the Rixeyville road, having marched about nineteen miles. On the 8th, finding that a long march was ahead of us, and that the supplies had to be closely looked to, I ordered all the baggage, tents, &c., that could be spared to be sent to the rear. By this means each brigade was enabled to transport three days rations in its train, in addition to an equal amount in the division commissary train, the men also carrying three days rations each in his haversack. Hence, when the division resumed its marc

Culpeper about noon, Pleasonton concentrates in that village Kilpatrick's division to prevent Stuart outstripping Buford on the Rappahannock, and sends Gregg to Rixeyville, on Hazel River, to cover on the north the flank of the army. At daybreak Stuart, finding no one before him at James City, has ordered Hampton's division to on the 12th at daybreak; the two others will remain on the Rappahannock—the Third on the right, the First on the left. Finally, Gregg is ordered to proceed to Rixeyville beyond Sulphur Springs, where he arrives at nine o'clock in the evening. He is to guard the crossings of Hedgeman's River and to watch with care the road from ing from Griffinsburg to Amissville; Ewell, following on the right a parallel direction, takes the road from Culpeper to Warrenton, which crosses Hazel River at Rixeyville and Hedgeman's River at Sulphur Springs; Stuart crosses it before him with the main body of his cavalry. Since the preceding day one of his regiments, the Elev
From Northern Virginia. We mentioned in our issue of yesterday that passengers by the Central read reported that heavy firing was heard in the direction of Culpeper from Gordonsville on Monday, and that the opinion obtained that a severe fight was in progress. It has since transpired that this firing was near Rixeyville, in Culpeper county, between the forces of Gen. Stuart and the advance of the enemy. The affair resulted in a very sharp skirmish, in which the enemy were driven back over the Hazel and Rappahannock rivers. What the loss was on either side we were not able to learn, but officers who came down on the train last evening attach little importance to the engagement, and regard it as a mere skirmish, and not by any means indicating a prospect of an early general battle. The firing is said to have continued at intervals from 7 o'clock in the morning until 2 o'clock in the afternoon.
