His force on the Charles City road, after advancing to within two miles of White's tavern, was driven back across White Oak swamp. Our loss was small. We regret to announce the death of that brave and dashing young officer, Brigadier-General Victor J. B. Girardey. He was killed by a shot in the forehead while leading his command in a charge to re-occupy the works from which our troops had at first been driven by the enemy on Tuesday evening. At an early period of the war he entered the sal on General Mahone's staff, with the rank of captain, and after the battle of the 30th July, in front of Petersburg, was promoted to the temporary rank of Brigadier-General.

From Petersburg. Petersburg, August 17. --Deserters and prisoners brought in to-day concur in the statement that Burnside's and Warren's corps are still in our front here, whilst Hancock's, (Second), and perhaps other infantry, are now operating on the north side of James river. Advices received at headquarters here confirm the defeat of the enemy in the fight yesterday, near White's Tavern, on the north side of James river. Our loss was not very large. Among our losses were Generals Girardey and Chambliss, killed. The fight is supposed to have been renewed, to some extent, to-day, firing being heard in that direction. Official advices from the Valley Department were received at these headquarters up to yesterday. Up to that time no general engagement had taken place. In front of this place nothing of interest is transpiring. Rain has fallen every day this week, which is most grateful to man and beast.
