mn to make a dash at Belle Island, and liberate the Yankee prisoners there. They have failed in everything, except some temporary damage to our railroads, the burning of some barns and mills, the seizure of some horses, the hanging of one negro, and the stealing of some spoons. For these he has paid, probably, two hundred and fifty picked men, and he has thoroughly broken down the rest, both men and horses, for a time. Of the damage to the railroads the extent is not yet known. The Fredericksburg road has had one of its engines re-burnt; it was burnt in the former raid—and three or four small gondolas. The Central road is thought to have suffered considerably. As if waiting for Kilpatrick to get through, Butler is understood to be moving again. Some of his cavalry appeared yesterday at Tunstall's Station, it is said; and it is alleged that a heavy co-operating column of infantry (twelve regiments), are at the Burnt Ordinary, in New Kent.

ned to say, Lieut. Ditty was shot in both eyes. Thus has passed away Kilpatrick's second attempt at raiding into Richmond. He has been pretty well hackled by our forces, having lost, probably, at least one-tenth of his force in killed and captured. As far as the grand objects of his undertaking were concerned, he has reason to feel very foolish. Prisoners say it was the design of the Brooke Turnpike column to attract our whole force, and leave the river-side column to make a dash at Belle Island, and liberate the Yankee prisoners there.

Perhaps it is well he should come while our hand is in. Skirmish on the Western road. We have obtained some particulars of the skirmish with the enemy to which we referred on yesterday, on the Plank Road, about three miles West of Richmond, on Tuesday evening. The troops engaged on our side were composed wholly of our city organizations, who, on this occasion, had their first encounter with the enemy. The forces of the latter were about five hundred picked men, of five regiments of Gregg's cavalry, with two pieces of artillery. The artillery was not brought into action. The Tredegar Battalion, Maj.——, was the first to come into collision with the enemy. As the battalion was ascending the hill which descends from Benjamin Green's house, the Yankees, who were coming over it, suddenly appeared close at hand. The meeting was unexpected, and found our men unprepared for it, many of our guns being unloaded. The enemy deployed under the shelter of a piece of wood, and our me

D, slightly; Acting Lieutenant R. A. Tompkins, face and arm slightly. Privates—D. T. Carter, Co. A, slightly; F. M. Cary, Co. D, slightly in face; J. W. Burson and——McIndoe, Co. D, both slightly; S. M. Levin, Co. F, slightly in leg; R. B. Green, Co. F, in hand; Miles Cary, Co. K, sabre cut on shoulder; Gray Doswell, Co. K, shot through the thigh (flesh wound). Missing: Private T. Y. Catlett, Co. I. The fierceness of the charge which the Departmental Battalion met in line of battle is evidenced by the sabre cuts received. Several of the enemy rode through our lines, and were shot down or captured. Of the loss of the enemy we cannot speak with positive precision. They collected eighteen of their wounded at Mr. Green's house, in the rear of the fighting. Seven of these they afterwards carried

ve ground. They subsequently made a charge under which the battalion recoiled and made a rapid and broken retreat, and took no further part in the operations. The enemy pressed vigorously, making an attempt to cut off the men, but with indifferent success. Some were captured, but afterwards released, as the enemy could not afford to be encumbered with prisoners. Five horses and two dead soldiers left on the field show that the fire of our men was not without effect. On our side Lieutenant John Sweeney and private Blunt were killed. Much allowance is to be made for the circumstances under which the battalion went into action. As it was, the enemy were the greatest sufferers. The enemy's column now came forward with celerity, expecting to find no further obstacle to their progress. The departmental and quartermaster's battalions, who were following the march of the Armory Battalion, suddenly beheld the approach of the enemy. Capt. John McAnerny, of company B, Departmental Ba

id. Gallant defence of Richmond by Departmental Battalion. The very interesting account of the Dahlgren raid, by Prof. John Pollard, which appeared in this column two weeks ago, has called forth many comments and recollections of that famous event of the war. There is talk of holding a reunion of those living who took part in the exciting work of heading off and driving away from Richmond the raiders under Dahlgren. These facts make anything on the subject interesting. Col. John W. Anderson has furnished us with the following clipping from the Richmond Sentinel, a wartime paper bearing date March 3rd, 1864. The account is given just as it appeared in the Sentinel. It will be seen that this is the continuation of a story of the day before. It is a pity the first installment has not been preserved. But here is the second installment. Our last account represented the column of the enemy that had been repulsed on the Brook Turnpike, as having crossed the Chickahomi

ecked and broken, and a couple of volleys more drove him from the field in flight. Our troops deserve very high praise for making so gallant a debut under circumstances so perplexing and a call so sudden. They repulsed and drove back a greater number of the enemy's picked veterans.
