over and be able to take the field again, Col. Williams, of the First Virginia, received a very severe wound, and is now in the hands of the enemy. Major Palmer, of the same regiment, who was reported killed, received only a slight wound in the arm, and remained on the field until the close of the engagement. Neither Col. Kemper nor Col. Corse, both of whom were reported wounded, received any injury, though they exposed themselves in a daring manner through out the day. The rumor that General Anderson was killed probably arose from the death of his brother, who fell in the battle. The General was not injured. We hear that the loss on our side, to killed, wounded, and missing, is estimated at 600. The loss of the enemy can only be conjectured, though it was unquestionably much heavier than ours. We are indebted to a gentleman who participated in the fight on Sunday, near Williamsburg, for the following narrative. Sunday's engagement The greater part of the forces fall
Yorktown Line" of defence having nailed for rest, in the open ground back of Williamsburg, gave the Yankee advance an opportunity of coming up with the rear guard, consisting of Gen. Sims's Georgia and Gen. Griffin's Mississippi brigades, to which was attached Manly's North Carolina battery. The enemy did not appear in any force from under their cover of woods until one rear guard had either open ground and re and were marching through Williamsburg at which time a courier brought word to Gen. McLaws that they were deploying in force to the right an left of Fort McGruder (which our forces had just left ) and that they had planted a battery of rifled guns immediately to the front of the redoubt, and only distant 700 yards--The rear guard was immediately ordered "about, face — double quick, march" Sanly's battery was ordered to advance and seize Fort McGruder before the Yankees secured it. Then commenced a race — artillery, cavalry, infantry, had to run the "gunnel" of the rifle battery

Louisiana. A youthful hero.[for the Richmond Dispatch] Among the many youthful heroes who fell dying or wounded, at the battle of Williamsburg on Monday last, was John Tyler Waller, the same who at Leesburg received the approbation of Gen. Evans for his heroic conduct. Young Waller, (14 years of age,) belonged to the gallant "Home Guard" of Lynchburg, (Captain Otey,) whose company was in the thickest of the fight during the entire period of action. When met by his father, who was deeply distressed, he remarked, " Father, I feel defending my dear mother's grace." God grant him recovery from his wounds, and that his brilliant promise may be fulfilled, to the discharge of even more important duties to his country. A Friend

It is absurd to talk of whipping men who, after marching eighteen hours without rest or food, and heavily packed, will, at a chance of a fight, crop their knapsacks and with a soul-stirring cheer, seize their muskets and run a race for nearly two miles to meet the enemy.
