Another correspondent of the Dispatch, who witnessed the terrific engagement, sends a long and interesting account, a portion of which we append. After describing the successful attack upon the Cumberland and the Congress, the writer proceeds. It was now about 8 o'clock P. M., when the Confederate steamer Patrick Henry, Capt. Tucker; the Jamestown, Lieut. Barney, and the Teazer, Lieut. Webb, which had been lying near the Rocks on James river, and were attracted by the cannonading, appeared on the scene, and were ordered at once by Commodore Buchanan to open upon the Congress and the perfidiens shore batteries; and never was order more daringly executed, as these slight vassals dashed up to the enemy and literally vomited fire upon them. How they escaped destruction in this unequal conflict, it is impossible to explain, especially as at this hour the Minnesota, the heaviest steamer in the Federal navy, came up from Old Point, and opened upon our squadron, about a mile off.

Rumored skirmish. Capt. Tucker, of the Jennings Wise Hussas, with forty of his men, left this city on Monday night on a scouting expedition within the fines of the enemy. We heard last evening, on what we deem good authority, that Capt. C. met a scouting party of Federal, attacked and routed them, taking three prisoners.
