The war News. We give elsewhere full details of the battle on Thursday near Reams's station, on the Weldon railroad. Each fresh development in regard to this affair makes our victory more complete, and the discomfiture of the enemy more serious, than represented by first reports. It now appears that the number of prisoners captured will reach over twenty-five hundred, and among them is an acting Brigadier-General by the name of Cutler. The commissioned officers number about one hundred. The reported capture of Colonel Spear, of raiding notoriety, we regret to say, is not confirmed. It seems that fear lent him wings, and his flight was too rapid to admit of his being overtaken. The success of this movement reflects great credit upon the skill and sagacity of our commanding general, as well as upon the valor of the officers and men engaged. The results, too, are vastly important, apart from the loss immediately inflicted upon the enemy. The further destruction of the Wel

Our loss, for the fighting done, was very small, and one thousand will probably cover it.--Many of the wounded are but slightly hurt. We could hear of the loss of no general officer. Up to dark last evening, about two thousand prisoners had been brought in, among them about one hundred commissioned officers, from colonel down. Colonel Cutler, acting brigadier-general, is among the captured. The number of prisoners will reach over twenty-five hundred. The enemy's loss is unknown, but believed to have been severe. Hancock's corps was engaged in the battle, and probably other infantry troops, besides cavalry. The loss of this corps on Thursday could not have been less than five thousand, and when this into consideration, with the it has sustained, it may safely be said it is nearly ruined. as reported.

General Hampton then dismounted his men and fought their infantry, gradually but steadily pushing them back until they reached their works, one mile this side of Reams's, capturing about eight hundred prisoners. At 5 o'clock in the afternoon General Hill attacked the enemy's works, and after a short but sharp fight took them, capturing a large number of prisoners and nine pieces of artillery. The enemy fled in great confusion. Colonel Pegram, of Richmond, turned the captured guns upon the enemy with great effect. The number of prisoners will probably reach twenty-five hundred. Brigadier-General Cutler was captured. The prisoners belong to Hancock's corps, and have been brought to town. There was considerable firing down the road to day but no heavy fighting. Our cavalry acted with conspicuous gallantry.
