s not serious. The enemy on the Southside. The movements of the enemy on the Southside, under Gen. W. F. (Baldy) Smith, are as yet but little known, with the exception of a general intention to flank Drewry's kind. A gentleman who left City Point Thursday night about 8 o'clock says that on that afternoon, about 4 o'clock, the enemy landed a force of some 2,000 at City Point, capturing our picket guard of thirty men, under command of Lieut, Dugger. Our signal station was also captured, City Point, capturing our picket guard of thirty men, under command of Lieut, Dugger. Our signal station was also captured, but the men made their escape. The main bulk of the enemy's force proceeded to Bermuda Hundreds, about three miles higher up James river, in Chesterfield county, where they landed a force variously estimated at from ten to fifteen thousand men. He counted forty-one transports, and others could be seen in the distance, coming up James river. This large flotilla was convoyed by three iron-clads (monitors) and four wooden gunboats. Bermuda Hundreds is near the mouth of the Appomattox river,
Flag — of Truce. --Five hundred Yankee prisoners were started down the river yesterday morning in the steamer Wm. Allison, to be exchanged for our men who had been brought by the Yankees to City Point; but before the Allison reached Bermuda Hundreds she was notified by the Yankee authorities that they would not exchange prisoners, and that she must put back. The Yankee prisoners were then brought back to the city. It is presumed that the Yankees refused to exchange because they were unwilling that our men should bring to the city all the information which, from observation, they had obtained of their strength and movements. As the Allison put back she was followed closely as far as Gurl's Neck by two of the enemy's turreted monitors.
