Army of the Potomac. [our own correspondent.] Outpost, near Fairfax, Dec. 4th. On the morning of December 1st an order was issued to Capt. T. L. Rosser, 2d company Washington Artillery, to proceed to the outposts with his battery, with a full complement of men and horses, to relieve Latham's Battery, there on duty. Although suffering from a recent illness he made hasty preparations, and in less than half an hour was on Fairfax road. Desiring to see something more of life on the advancvisions and other necessaries, and they are now in a comparatively comfortable condition, although by no means an agreeable one. The frequent passage of parties and wagons into the town gives facilities for sending in letters and papers. Capt. Rosser, with his battery, is still on picket duty about two miles this side of Fairfax C. H., and in the position held for some time by his and other batteries. He will be relieved to-morrow, I presume, by another company of the Washington Artillery
enemy. Being perfectly confident they were our men, Burke rode up to it without the proper precaution, and ran into an ambuscade, where some fifteen or twenty men lay hidden. They sprang up and pointed their guns at him; but still supposing them friends, he cried out, "Don't shoot me, I know you." They then gathered upon him, and burke, seeing it was no use to struggle against so many, gave himself up. At that moment a section of the second company of the Washington Artillery, under Captain T. L. Rosser, came into the fields and placed their guns in battery. Burke who had frequently seen the gallant Captain shoot, had no idea of risking his life by standing before his howitzers, and so begged to be taken to the rear. They took him back across the fields to a spot near Gilbert's house, and there he was met by the Colonel of the New York Seventy-ninth, who ordered him to dismount. "That is a fine horse you have," said the Colonel. "Yes," was the reply; "he is worth $20 more
A brave officer wounded. We regret to learn that Capt. T. L. Rosser, of the 2d company Washington Artillery, was wounded in the skirmish at Mechanicsville on Saturday morning. He had command of his own and other artillery on the occasion. After fighting for some time, and while engaged in posting a piece to protect it from the enemy's fire, he was struck by the fragment of a shell, which tors the flesh from his right arm, causing a severs lacerated wound. His horse was also shot under hih tors the flesh from his right arm, causing a severs lacerated wound. His horse was also shot under him. About this time the order came for our force to fall back, and the artillery withdrew from the field in beautiful style, in the face of the fire of the enemy. In this engagement, it is perhaps unnecessary to add, the Washington Artillery maintained the high reputation it has won in many previous engagements. Capt. Rosser is now in the city at the house of Dr. Gibson, on Franklin street.
Personal. --Major-Gen. N. G. Evans, the hero of Leesburg, arrived in Richmond on Saturday, and is stopping at the Ballard House. Colonel T. L. Rosser, of Stuart's cavalry, who was severely wounded while leading his regiment into action at Kelly's Ford has also arrived in this city. His wound is doing well.
rs ashore. Midshipman Goodwyn had charge of this, and in a short time all were landed and delivered into the hands of the cavalry waiting to receive them. I should here mention that on the day we launched our boats in Meachum's Creek, Col. T. L. Rosser, so long and so favorably known to the public, brought his regiment down to co-operate with us. This was exactly what we wished, and no better officer could have been selected for the service, or one who would have given greater satisfactioning steamer on this station, had gone up the river to coal-up intending upon her return to relieve these for the same purpose. Lt. Wood determined, however, to make the most of the little on board. Expecting an encounter with the Currituck, Col. Rosser had furnished from his regiment Capt. Clay's company of Sharpshooters, to assist in the engagement should we meet her. Capt. Fendall Gregory, and Lt. Nunn, of the same regiment, also accompanied us.
