g. We make some extracts: White-House, Va., May 26, 1862. The great body of our army have safely, and, with but little opposition, crossed the Chickahominy river, and our advanced guard is within five miles of the city of Richmond. This fact dispels the heretofore prevalent idea that the enemy would make a bold defehe front I learn that the 4th Michigan regiment, while on a reconnaissance yesterday, encountered a large body of the rebels in a swamp a few miles from the Chickahominy river. An engagement took place, which resulted in the discomfiture and defeat of the rebels, a large number of whom were killed or wounded and taken prisoners. s reported the near approach of our forces. The announcement caused a stampede of the dinnerless party. A forward movement was made yesterday, and the Chickahominy river, where it was supposed the enemy would make a stand, was passed by our forces without molestation.--The enemy were evidently afraid of a flank movement.
