But little had been known of Sheridan's movements since Friday until yesteSheridan's movements since Friday until yesterday, when information was received that he was at or near Louisa Court-House. It was reported that Gen. Hampton attacked him on Saturday in that locality, capturing several hundred prisoners and a b going on with favorable prospects, and that our men were well and in good spirits. Six of Sheridan's men, captured whilst on a foraging expedition, were brought to Richmond by the canal packet yesterday. The object of this raid of Sheridan's is manifestly to embarrass our transportation by cutting our lines of communication with the interior. If Gen Hampton shall succeed in defeating that purpose, and in routing Sheridan's gang, he will win for himself and his command imperishable renown. The fight at Petersburg. It appears that Gen.

But we do not believe he had 130,000 in the beginning. Our correspondent "Sallust," who is rarely far in the wrong, estimated his infantry before any battle had been fought at 92,000. It is certain that Sheridan never had more than 12,000 cavalry, and there was very little besides. Allow him, however, 15,000 cavalry and 5,000 artillery, and we make his force at starting 112,000 men. Of these, according to our calculation, he has lost 100,000 men. But his losses have been supplied to a great extent as fast as they occurred. His 85,000 reinforcements, would bring his army up to 97,000. But has he received reinforcements to that extent?
