this gallant little band retired with his face to the enemy, and at every feasible position maintained his ground, repulsing charge after charge, and finally discouraging the enemy to such a degree as to cause them to cease from the attack. Sheridan's Raiders, so signally defeated by General Hampton, were last heard from at Newtown, in King and Queen county, probably on their way to Gloucester Point or some other place of refuge. Six Yankees, composing the "rear"of Sheridan's party, paSheridan's party, passed Atlee's Station last evening, and were told that they had better hurry away. They replied that they were running from the d — d rebels now.--The citizens allowed them to pass on. Casualties in Hampton's cavalry. We have not yet seen any authentic report of the casualties sustained in the cavalry fight in Louisa county on the 11th and 12th inst. We hear that General Rosser received a severe wound in the thigh, and that Colonel Carter, of the 3d Virginia, was killed. Both of these
has established his headquarters at Bermuda Landing. He will proceed to invest Fort. Drewry, the capture of which is regarded as an absolute accidently. Gen Sheridan's expedition. A scout who arrived at Washington from the front, Tuesday night (14th) says that Sheridan's cavalry force, which started out Thursday, on an Sheridan's cavalry force, which started out Thursday, on an extended raid, had not been heard from when he left; but it was the impression in the army that he had reached Charlottesville, on his way to Lynchburg. The rebel cavalry are not in a condition to seriously impede his successful progress, and he will probably reach the latter point with little or no fighting on the way. From Lynchburg, his movements will remain a mystery for the present at least. Another account says that Sheridan was moving on Gordonsville, to destroy railroad communications in that direction, whilst General Kantz was similarly occupied on the Southside, the object being to prevent the movement of supplies and reinforcements.
Arrival of prisoners. --During Saturday and yesterday Yankee prisoners, captured mostly in straggling squads from the north side of James river, were constantly coming into the city under the escort of Confederate guard. The number booked at the Libby yesterday afternoon reached considerably over a hundred, and when we last visited that prison the officers attached thereto were hourly expecting an arrival of five hundred more, taken by Gen. Wade Hampton in his encounter with Sheridan at Trevillian's, one day last week. It has been previously reported that these prisoners were carried to Lynchburg; but since then it has turned out that, in consequence of the movements of Hunter, it was unsafe to continue on with them to that place, and they were therefore taken to New Canton, a point on the James River and Kanawha Canal, and from thence shipped in four freight boats to this city.
