were read. We were to go to Burkeville junction, from there to the bridges on the Danville road. We then for the first time took in the situation—that it was to be a race between ourselves and Kautz, which should get there first. The thought flitting through our brain meanwhile that Kautz and his bold riders might turn up somewhere on the road, misplace a few rails, ditch our old train, and play wild havoc with us. Thanks to our lucky star this evil fortune did not await us. We reached Burkville and then Farmville, where some refugees from Alexandria, and the citizens who were in mortal terror of the raiders, filled our haversacks and wished us God speed! The men, after such a reinforcement of material and moral support, in turn promised to give a good account of themselves when they struck the enemy. May 13th we arrived at Flat Creek Bridge early enough to go over the ground and make proper dispositions of the companies for the fight expected next morning. The enemy the sa

There are quite a number of Yankee troops in the place, who behave themselves very well, and seem disposed to be friendly toward Confederate soldiers. 6th. We left Greensboro at 11 A. M., and changed cars at Cedar Creek, the bridge over which has been burned. Having a drunken conductor in charge of the train, we were detained much longer than we expected, and did not reach Danville until 7 P. M. We found a large force of Yankees camped just outside the town, and a good number of blue coated guards inside the precincts. These, however, treated us very civilly. We placed our baggage in a box car and slept there all uight. 7th. Left Danville at 5 A. M. and arrived at Burkville without any noteworthy adventure. Continued the journey to Petersburg, at which place we arrived about 11 P. M. 8th. At 9 A. M. we took the train for Richmond, where we arrived in about two hours. We were joyfully received.
Six Columbiads, destined for the South, left this city by the Danville train yesterday morning; but being needed here for batter purposes, the Governor telegraphed to Burkville to have them stopped, and they weding, sent back to Richmond.
Good fare. --There must be very good fare at Burkville, on the Danville railroad. There could be no better proof to a man not at the itself than the spacimens sent to this jurnkey fit to grace a Lord's table lery ever seen in this city reliable witnesses, J. E. Gregg, a best of
rs, but nothing approximating a general engagement, or even an assault at any point. Fewer shells than usual fell within the city limits yesterday, and but little damage was done. Grant seems to have adopted the expedient of sending out raiding parties, one of which, under Spear, has already started, and, it is reported. has succeeded in cutting the Petersburg and Weldon Railroad. This expedition, it is said, was moving through Dinwiddie yesterday morning, and inquiring for the road to Burkville and the High Bridge. Hence it is inferred that a demonstration against the Danville and a southside Railroads is in contemplation. After the above was written a telegraphic dispatch was received, which will be found in another column, announcing that an engagements took place in the evening, in which the Yankees were whipped, losing a large number of prisoners, with cannon and color. The prisoners belonged to the crack corps of Gen. Hencook. This news furnishes a pleasant comme
