Hill moved from his position south of the city, and marching down the county roads, encamped in the vicinity of Reams's statistic from Petersburg, and on T prisoners. Having thus accomplished his full share of the work, the fight ceased until our infantry could be brought into action. About 5 o'clock P. M., General Hill, having reached a position on the enemy's flank, attacked their works, behind which a large force of infantry was massed, and upon which bristled a heavy line ation. Dismounting, they rushed upon the enemy, and despite the advantage of his position, pushed him steadily until he found shelter in his works. Then awaiting Hill's attack on the flank, they again move forward in concert with the infantry, and by their combined assault easily drove the enemy from his stronghold. Through
