ill as to put to ignominious flight the entire column — the officers leading. The difficulties of the road were, however, so great, that he captured only 26, together with their arms, equipments, and, for the most part, their horses, besides killing and wounding a number, and sustained himself no loss at all. This last is the first engagement with the enemy's cavalry — the result shows that he has not yet found the element of redemption from his manifest destiny. On the 2nd inst., Col. C. W. Field, 6th Va. Cavalry with a detachment of his regiment made a bold and successful dash into the enemy's infantry pickets stationed in the village of Anandale, killing 4, carrying off 15 captured, with their arms and equipments, sustaining a loss of two missing. To mention especially the conspicuous gallantry displayed on these various occasions would transcend the limits of their order.--Suffice it to say, the officers and men engaged here behaved in a manner mighty creditable and are
From the Rappahannock line. [Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.] Guinea's Depot, May 7, 1862. Since our evacuation of Fredericksburg, the troops composing the advance brigade, under Gen. C. W. Field, have had much to do in the way of marching, picketing, &c; yet all are in-good spirits, and are anxious to meet the invader. Richmond need not fear any danger from this direction, as the forces hereabouts are determined, tried and numerous enough to give the Yankees a bloody and terrible fate, if any farther advance is made. It was with profound regret that the necessity came for leaving the Rappahannock, but now it is seen that it will probably turn out for the best. The almost confidence is placed in Gen. Field, as well as in all our Generals, and it is felt that they know what is best. Every day we hear from Fredericksburg, and are glad to any that the citizens left there are true and unyielding. Some of the boys went down several times to the river bank, and su
