-day. Of course it is impossible at this time to chronicle but a small portion of the casualties and incidents. We give such as we have been able to obtain. The 12th Virginia and the 3d Alabama behaved nobly. Both regiment were cut up badly. The Richmond Grays lost two killed and five wounded and missing. Probably no regiment suffered more than the 3d Alabama. Besides Col. Lomax, Adjutant Johnston, Capt Mays, Capt. Phelan, and Lieut. James Brown, were killed, and Captain Ready, Capt Robinson, Lieut Witherspoon, Lieut. Gardner, Lieut Partridge were wounded. These casualties were among the officers alone. The slaughter among the privates was terrific. The Lynchburg Artillery, formerly known as Latham's battery, now commanded by Captain James Dearing, did good service in the fight. The men fought bravely and laid many a Yankee upon the ground. Captain Dearing entered with thirty-four cannoneers, and had nineteen wounded. He also had between thirty and forty horses disa
pting to regain the position lost the evening before. We are sorry to add that in this engagement, the 3d Alabama lost Col. Lomax, and Adj. Johnson, while the 12th Virginia (and Richmond Grays particularly) lost many valuable men. The 9th Virginia drses shot under him, and was severely hurt before relinquishing his command in the field. Gen. Pettigrew was killed, Col Lomax, (3rd Ala.,) Col. Hatton, (7th Tenn,) and others, and as to the number of subordinate officers the list is a long and fea in the morning. Many of our dead and wounded still remained upon the field, and among them the body of the lamented Colonel Lomax. An omnibus was sent out to get as many as possible, but this was captured by the enemy.--The Yankees advanced to thnd Grays lost two killed and five wounded and missing. Probably no regiment suffered more than the 3d Alabama. Besides Col. Lomax, Adjutant Johnston, Capt Mays, Capt. Phelan, and Lieut. James Brown, were killed, and Captain Ready, Capt Robinson, Lie
we observed large bodies of troops of Longstreet's division moving towards, and on the Williamsburg road, with bands in full blast, colors flying and men hilarious with delight, supposing, as proved to be the case, that the enemy were to be attacked in force and compelled to retreat or surrender. He stilly proceeding down the road indicated, we found it almost impossible to pass, owing to the immense bodies of water lying along the route, together with an unlimited supply of mud. From Magruder's farm, and several miles forward upon the turnpike, all seemed to be an impassable swamp. How regiment after regiment traversed the ground seems even now almost a problem. Yet, onward, onward passed Longstreet's division towards the point of attack; and although everything seemed unusually quiet there was a peculiar stare and rumbling in the woods and on the road, (some six miles, and in the woods fronting Barker's plantation,) which denoted that the enemy were unusually active and antic

Richmond Grays particularly) lost many valuable men. The 9th Virginia did not act so well as usual! The enemy were particularly active with artillery and accurately shelled the ambulance train on the York River road. Operations along the line yesterday, were not of very important nature, the enemy being intent upon preparing for their main attack to-day, (Monday.) We are sorry to say that our officers suffered severely in the two days operations, and among others we would add that Gen. Garland had three horses shot under him, and was severely hurt before relinquishing his command in the field. Gen. Pettigrew was killed, Col Lomax, (3rd Ala.,) Col. Hatton, (7th Tenn,) and others, and as to the number of subordinate officers the list is a long and fearful one. Time and space precludes the possibility of further details — to-day is big with Fate! may Providence aid us in our cause, and may historians yet chronicle a second Marathon. Later in the evening the enemy appeared

ball passing through his head and he dying instantly. Three others of his company, (the Washington Light Infantry, Hampton Legion,) bit the dust at the same time, and many more were wounded, and the enemy having repulsed the attacking party are in possession of the dead. The casualties in the 23d North Carolina, as far as heard from, are as follows Killed.--A F Scarborough, Captain, B. J. Redfern, co., & left on the field. Wounded — Frank Bannett, co.

and among them the body of the lamented Colonel Lomax. An omnibus was sent out to get as many as possible, but this was captured by the enemy.--The Yankees advanced to the edge of a piece of woods, within about one thousand yards of our line, where they halted and remained at dusk. Gen Mahone's brigade was soon reinforced by several brigades which were drawn up a short distance in its rear, while a large force was placed near by in reserve.--President Davis, General Lee, Smith, Longstreet, Stuart, and other commanding Generals, were upon the ground at this point, showing that it was an important position in the affairs of the day. Thus matters stood at sundown. As no further attack was anticipated during the night, our troops prepared to bivouac on the field, in readiness for the events of to-day. Of course it is impossible at this time to chronicle but a small portion of the casualties and incidents. We give such as we have been able to obtain. The 12th Virginia and the 3d A
