This morning at daylight, the batteries on both sides opened, Wheeler confining his guns to shelling the houses behind which thWheeler confining his guns to shelling the houses behind which the enemy's infantry were concealed. The fire was too hot for the rebels, and they left the village, a portion retiring across the Chickahominy, the remainder falling back to the railroad.
