They had scarcely reached their position when the enemy's line of battle advanced from the woods directly in front and about parallel with our line, and poured forth a most destructive infantry fire. Meanwhile Gen. Winder had been mortally wounded by a shell, and the command of the division devolved upon Gen. Taliaferro. The enemy, by overpowering numbers, had nearly succeeded in turning our left flank, when, at this critical moment, the supports came up, and they were driven back in confusion. In the attack upon our centre the enemy met with still less success — they were not only repulsed, but driven back to their original position, which, by the time the musketry ceased, was occupied by our troops. The infantry firing closed about eight o'clock, but an effective cannonade was kept up until ne

There was some firing early in the morning, but no engagement took place, the enemy declining to reply, although in sight. Major Holladay, of the 1st brigade, lost an arm on Saturday evening, and Lieut. Alexander, of the Irish battalion, was wounded. But few of the casualties in the battle have yet been reported. Maj.
