Doc. 106.-fight at Slaterville, Va. Fought May 9, 1862. New-York times account New-Kent Court-House, Va., Saturday Evening, May 10, 1862. A lively skirmish occurred yesterday at a place called Slaterville, two miles below here, which reflects much credit upon our officers and men engaged in it. At three o'clock P. M. eighty men of the Sixth regular cavalry had advanced to Slaterville, when a considerable force of the enemy was observed directly in front. Our force charged upon the rebels, and obliged them to retreat precipitately to the woods behind a hill on the left of the main road, after which we occupied the hill, with two pieces of artillery, and two companies of infantry — the Second Rhode Island and the Ninety-eighth Pennsylvania volunteers--besides the cavalry previously mentioned. Shortly after the enemy reappeared from the woods with three squadrons of cavalry, and two pieces of artillery, supported by one regiment infantry. He fired four times in quic

mand of the troops. The rebel cavalry was advancing toward our force, when our cavalry formed in line and waited the approach of the enemy. When he had arrived sufficiently near, our troops made a dash upon him, cutting their way through the line and causing the utmost confusion to prevail, after which they returned to quarters by a road leading through the woods on the right of the enemy. An incident which shows the barbarity of the rebels occurred on the field of action. At the time of the charge made by the cavalry, one of our men was wounded, when the rebels immediately drew their sabres and literally cut him to pieces. They also rifled his pockets, and even severed his finger for the purpose of getting off a ring. The rebel loss during the engagement was ten killed, fourteen wounded, and two taken prisoners. Our loss was four killed and three wounded. One of the prisoners, named J. Ryan, of the Eighteenth Mississippi volunteers, was taken by the Signal corps. whit.
