ill 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 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.

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 disabled. The 1st Lieutenant, Dickenson, had his leg b
the finest in the whole world, and men, indeed, who knew not what danger was. To particularize, we cannot attempt for want of space and time — sufficient to say, that Saturday's operations ended in another "Federal victory (!)" and that the foe "retired" three miles to enjoy it undisturbed! Expecting a resumption of hostilities on Sunday, every preparation was made therefore, and at an early hour, the enemy commenced to advance down the York River Railroad; but Gen. Mahone's Brigade (of Huger's command) met them, and gallantly drove them backwards again, although manfully attempting 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 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 a
Our artillery at this juncture came into play, and although the mud baffled human industry, patience, and perseverance, some piece of the Lynchburg (we believe Latham's) Battery got into position, at the entrance to Barker's farm, and played such havoc that the foe deserted their four large brass howitzers, unable to reply. Bud entire camp, with great supplies, and drove the foe two miles beyond their encampment of the morning. The greatest and hottest fire was about 4 P. M., when Latham's and Carter's batteries got into action, supported by the 4th and 5th South Carolina, 1st Virginia, 12th Mississippi, and other regiments. Having many valuablesdge were wounded. These casualties were among the officers alone. The slaughter among the privates was terrific.
