Walker these regiments, in the face of a terrific fire, charged the formidable fortifications of the enemy, and carried them at the point of the bayonet. It was in this charge that General Walker, riding by mistake into the enemy's lines, was captured after his horse was shot, and himself wounded in the foot. Walker's brigade is the same formerly commanded by General Evans, of Leesburg fame. Lieut. Henry C. Howlett, (of Petersburg,) 5th Virginia cavalry, was captured some days since at the house of a relative in Chesterfield. He was on furlough at the time having been wounded some time ago in a cavalry fight near Brandy Station. We continue to receive accounts of the depredations of the enemy in his recent advance through Chesterfield county. Among the sufferers is Mr. G. P. Copeland, a portrait painter of merit, who resides to the left of the

The War news — operations on the Southside — from Gen Lee's army, &c. The report from the Southside is "all quiet." With the exception of some skirmishing between the working parties on neither side, no event of importance has occurred for the past three days. Our troops still held the enemy in his entrenchments near Bermuda Hundred, where he has ample opportunity to ruminate over the disasters he has experienced during the present campaign. Gen. Bragg visited Gen. Beauregard's headquarters yesterday, returning about half past 5 o'clock in the evening. We understand that the interview between them was of the most cordial and satisfactory character. Information has been received that the Yankees have hanged an old negro named Columbus who for many years past has been in the employments of the Petersburg railroad company. Columbus styled himself the "Port Walthall agency." of the company. The negroes will soon begin to find out who their friends are. The heavy firing on
