It looked rather hard, but when a man is wounded he ought to be satisfied to stop." A capture in the woods. A correspondent sends us the following incident of the fight on the 30th: Five members of the 7th Virginia regiment, having been detailed as a guard on the Mechanicsville turnpike near the Chickahominy, were told by a wounded soldier that there were some twenty-five Yankees in the woods near by. The guard, having been reinforced by two Texans, determined to capture the Yankees at all hazards. Soon after they left, they heard that a squad of cavalry, under command of Lieut. Yager, had gone in pursuit of the enemy. Horner and his companions proceeded at doub

tersburg yesterday afternoon, report that the enemy's transports were passing up and down James river all day yesterday. We hear, too, that these boats invariably display the yellows flag, thereby indicating a vast number of wounded, or else resorting to a bit of deception eminently characteristic of the Yankees. They have on repeated occasions refused to respect the yellow flag which has been holded upon our hospitals, and have actually tired upon it. This was done at Ball Run, on the 18th of July, again at Pensacola, and also at other places which we cannot now recall. We hear that the four prisoners who were taken or the Chesterfield shore Tuesday evening they having been drilled over by the current, state that the amount of dissatisfaction prevailing in Gen. McClellan's army was vast, but that when cornered and under the eye of their officers, they would fight. These men did not hesitate to state it as their opinion, that there were thousands who would willingly leave, if
City. They had two or three skirmishes with the enemy, and secured a number of prisoners, losing none themselves, and having no more than one or two wounded during their entire progress. General Stuart is now co-operating with the main body of our army, and fully prepared for a dash upon the Yankees whenever opportunity offers. The wounded. A train arrived at the York River depot about 12 o'clock Wednesday night, bringing a considerable number of our wounded; among them Lieut. Col. Kane of Georgia, who had a leg shattered by a ball. They were all removed to the hospitals and private residences as early as practicable yesterday. morning. The body of Col. Mears, of the 3d North Carolina regiment, who was shot through the head on Tuesday, was brought up on the same train. Many of our citizens have been indefatigable in their attentions to the wounded, working incessantly both day and night to have them conveyed to the various hospitals. That there has been some delay an
ppes's Island. Heavy firing was heard down the river this morning." Eppes's Island is opposite City Point, and separated from the main land (Shirley) by a marsh, which is overflowed at high tide. It must have been a difficult task for the retreating Yankees to reach the Island under the circumstances, and we shall not be surprised to hear that many of them published in the attempt. Among the prevalent rumors yesterday evening was one that 7,000 of the enemy had been captured below Curl's Neck, but we were unable to trace it to any authentic source. Persons coming from the last battle field were utterly unable to give any definite account of the situation of affairs, though many were quite confident that the bulk of the Federal army had either escaped by the river, or got under cover of their gunboats. One gentleman who left the scene of the recent struggle about midday informed us that he heard cannot aiding apparently a few miles below, but that it was not of long durati
my lately stationed there lacked nothing in the way of war appliances, while luxuries even were in great abundance. On one tree a sign, "Fifth Avenue Hotel," still remains, and this perhaps marked some aristocratic quarter of the camp. At Savage's farm, however, the scene is still more remarkable. It was here that a Yankee railroad train was set on fire and destroyed, with a vast amount of commissary and ordnance stores. Scattered over a large space of ground are broken boxes and barred away on the retreat. We are informed that the contents of an entire train of cars were deposited in Chickahominy river, and some valuable stores will probably be taken out uninjured. The enemy had established a "General Hospital" at Mr. Savage's house, and there are now at that place a thousand or more sick and wounded of the Federal army, including some officers, attended by their own surgeons. Most of these individuals are in hospital tents, though some are lying under the trees,
ore immediate vicinity of McClellan's forces. Stuart's Cavalry. During the exciting scenes of the past week, the famous body of cavalry under command of Gen. J. F. B. Stuart have by no means been idle. They left Richmond on Wednesday, 25th, and were near Jackson's army at the time of proceeding across from Hanover county. Subsequently they visited the White House, where they found no enemy, but abundant evidences of his attempt at wholesale destruction before leaving the place. Gen. Lee's house was burnt, with other buildings, and an immense quantity of grain. The Yankees had deposited here a very large amount of commissary stores, including everything necessary for supplying their army; and although their purpose was to destroy the whole, much was left uninjured, and arrangements have been made to remove it to a place where it can be made available. Our cavalry, who had ridden a long distance without food, found here enough to satisfy all their immediate wants, and men
ong promised feat of capturing the Southern capital, they were frank enough to state that the purpose of their visit to Richmond was to establish an agency for the collection of Southern debts due the merchants and others of the Northern cities.--They had with them a large number of bills from different houses in New York, but before an opportunity was offered to present them they were in charge of the Provost Marshal's vigilant detectives, and were paroled to make their appearance before Gen. Winder this morning at 9 o'clock. Yankee Trophies. Many wagon loads of war material, abandoned by the Yankees and left on the battle field, were brought to this city during yesterday. When any of the wagons containing Yankee plunder would come to a halt on the streets they would soon be surrounded by a crowd, who would examine with envious interest the relies left by "our Northern brethren." We understand that for several days past the Government has had teamsters employed gathering up
that they might have the honor of effecting the capture of the enemy before the cavalry would come up. In this they were disappointed, for the cavalry and they reached the ground about one and the same time. On coming within a short distance of the enemy, whom they found to number fifty-four, instead of twenty-five. with loaded muskets, they demanded their surrender. The Yankee officer demanded to know to whom he surrendered. He was answered by Lieut. Yager, to whom he immediately delivered up his sword. Casualties. In the engagement on Tuesday, in the 1st company of Richmond Howitzers, Private Jno. H. Herring was killed; W. L. Waddill, severely wounded; and Sergt. W. H: Blackador and Privates O. M. Price, J. B. Wise, W. C. Kean, Harrison Sublet, and L. H. Selater, slightly injured. Market Hall. The wounded at this hospital are receiving the attentions of Drs. Jos E. Clagett and E. L. Wager, who are affording all the relief that their facilities will permit.
Orr, just from the Hundreds, reports no gunboats above City Point; all having gone to Westover. The Yankee troops have all passed down the same direction. They left a great many wounded and sick at Shirley, besides a large lot of stores, &c. A great many of the Federals were driven from Shirley by the Confederate troops, and escaped over into Eppes's Island. Heavy firing was heard down the river this morning."
