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 advanc
visions 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
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.
