eir breastworks, and capturing six pieces of our artillery. Johnston's North Carolina, Walker's Stonewall, Va, and Gordon's Georgia Brigade, however, quickly came to their assistance, driving the enemy back, and recapturing our lost guns. The enemy's loss is said to be very heavy, especially in Field's and Rodes's front — The enemy are certainly fighting with great nerve and desperation. The Yankee Major General Sedgwick is certainly killed, and it is reported that Warren and Stevens are killed. On other parts of the line yesterday there was nothing but heavy skirmishing. Hayes, of La, was wounded in the leg yesterday, but not dangerously. Fredericksburg was occupied by the enemy Sunday night. The enemy have three pontoon bridges over the Rappahannock. The town is said to be filled with Yankee wounded — the number being estimated as high as 15,000. The enemy's loss thus far is believed to be 30,000--some have it 40,000. Stuart's cavalr

n is trunk and agreeable, the lower part of his face is overflowed by a torrent of reddish-brown beard, his eye is bright and mobile, his movements are full of grace, his address is pleasing, his port lofty and his horsemanship perfect. Altogether he would challenge attention among a hundred thousand men upon the Vienness Prater or the Purisian Champ de Mars In the social circle his manners are engaging and his conversation fertile and suggestive. Gen Stuart married a daughter of Philip St. George Cooke, Colonel of the Second Dragoons, in the United States army. This officer, though a Virginian by birth and education, (he is the brother of the late John R. Cooke, of this city,) preferred his rank to his duty, and remained in the old service, to moke war upon the Southern people. He is now a General, and was under Cinilan when siege was laid to Richmond. It was said that one of Stuart's objects in the Pamunkey expedition was to take his father-in-law prisoner. At the age

ng and successful of all his expeditions were the Pamunkey raid through McClellan's lines, in which but one man, the gallant and lamented Captain Latane, was lost, and the recent descent upon Catiett's Station, where he captured such a vast quantity of stores and gathered up the official correspondence and full dress form coat of the redoubtable John Pupe, Major General U S A. As a cavalry officer Gen. Stuart combines with his regular West Point training much of the lan of Jack Morgan and Turner Ashby. Ready for any enterprise, his military motto seems to be that of the French lender, de l'audace, encore de l'audace, toujours de l'audace. In the old Army Gen Stuart was always popular. He was universally known under the pleasant nickname of "Beauty Stuart," as reflecting upon his personal appearance; but the irony was not happy, for on horseback, at the head of his column, there are fewer their looking men than our General. His expression is trunk and agreeable, the lower part o

With his rapid rise from a Colonelcy to the command of a brigade, and soon after to the rank of a Major General of cavalry, our readers are familiar. Perhaps the most striking and successful of all his expeditions were the Pamunkey raid through McClellan's lines, in which but one man, the gallant and lamented Captain Latane, was lost, and the recent descent upon Catiett's Station, where he captured such a vast quantity of stores and gathered up the official correspondence and full dress form coat of the redoubtable John Pupe, Major General U S A.

t occurred yesterday: The departure of the raiders from around Richmond — they Burn Buttom's bridge. On Thursday evening, about sundown, the forces under Sheridan, which have been before the city for several days, commenced their movement down the Peninsula. A good many horses which had been tired out they shot, leaving tas a picked command, intended for the capture of the city, and seem at a loss to account for the failure to assault the works. It is more than probable that Sheridan has gone to the river to cross over and join Butler, as the road he has taken will bring him to the river in the vicinity of City Point. List of cavalry captured by Sheridan on his way down. On their way down the road the Yankee raiders captured the following persons.--They stopped at a farm and allowed the prisoners to make out a list, which was left with the farmer to be sent to Richmond: Co.

d water tank. We learn from a telegram from Mr. Jas L Morrow, the Superintendent of the telegraph line on the road, who started on an engine yesterday morning to repair the damage to the line, that they left Powhatan for the Mattoax bridge, over the Appomattox river, 27½ miles from Richmond, and that heavy firing was heard there yesterday afternoon. There was a force of infantry and artillery stationed there to protect the iron bridge over the river. The cavalry is under the command of Spears, of the 11th Pa. regiment, who had just gotten through with an attempted raid to the rear of Petersburg, and got a whipping for the attempt. Free Gen. Lee's Army. The only intelligence received from Gen. Lee's army yesterday was the following dispatch from the correspondent of the Associated Press, which, by the cutting of the telegraph wives, had to come a very circuitous route. It will be seen that it is not later than Gen. Lee's last dispatch, and refers to the same fight allude

tted to posterity. James E B Stuart entered the Military Academy of West Point in the year 1850. Among his contemporaries at that institution were Gens Ambrose Philip, Henry Hath, George H Stuart, T H Holmes, Beverly H Robertson, and N George Evans, and Colonels Seth M Barron Alfred Cumming, and Thos S Rhett, of the Confederate army, and Burnside, Vicle, Wilcor, Cogswell, and others of greater or less repute, or disrepute, in the Yankee army. Among his immediate classmates were Colonels John Pegram, George W Custis Lee, and John B. Vilieplgue, now well known in the Confederate service, and Major Greble, of the Yankee artillery, who was killed in the first battle of the war, at Great Bethel. In the United States Army, the highest rank attained by Stuart was that of First Lieutenant, but this was in the First Cavalry, a regiment noted for its officers, of which Yankee Gen. Sumner was Colonel, and our own General Joseph E. Johnston, Lieut Col. The operations of the old Federal

Lee's last dispatch, and refers to the same fight alluded to in that: Battle Field, near Spotsylvania C. H.,via Louisa C. H., May 11. There was heavy cannonading all yesterday. About 12 o'clock, the enemy having got possession of the road leading to the main road to Louisa Court House, with a large force, Heth's Division was sent to drive them off, which was accomplished with but slight loss to us. Our troops drove the enemy back some three or four miles, and out of their lines of breastworks, capturing one piece of artillery, one caisson, and some one hundred and fifty prisoners. Among those wounded on our side, was Brigadier General H. H. Walker, of Virginia, whose foot has been amputated. Between 10 o'clock and nightfall the enemy made repeated assaults upon Field's Division, but

His father died ten or twelve years ago, full of honors; his mother yet lives to witness with joy the service he is rendering to his country, and the proud fame he has won to be transmitted to posterity.
