back. Meanwhile, Battle's and Daniel's brigades flanked the enemy's line of skirmishers, and succeeded in capturing 125 prisoners, who were received here last evening. Some of these prisoners stated that their "time was on Monday, and seemed to think it a hard case that they should have been captured at that interesting period. Eight prisoners, including a captain and a quartermaster, were also brought in yesterday afternoon. They were captured between Mechanicsville and the Pamunkey river on Monday evening. It appears that they got separated from their command, and were looking for their supply wagon, when they were taken by our cavalry. It was reported last evening that the Yankees had burnt the railroad depot at Hanover Court- House.

Contrary to the popular expectation, no general engagement took place yesterday.--The heavy firing heard in the morning gave rise to lle that a battle was in progress, but it turned out to be skirmishing on the lines, with artillery duels at intervals. A rumor was extensively circulated during the day that Ewell had on engagement with the enemy and drove him back some three miles, capturing 500 prisoners; but of this there is no confirmation. A wounded soldier, who came down last evening, states that he received his wound in a skirmish below Atlee's station. All accounts agree that the operations of yesterday were confined to skirmishing at different points along the lines. There is no doubt of the fact that Grant is endeavoring to make his way to the Peninsula, in order to connect with h

His gallantry was conspicuous, and his superior officers have spoken of him in terms of the lightest commendation. Should it turn out to be true that he has indeed lost his life on the field of battle, it may with truth be said that Virginia has offered no nobler sacrifice to this war than this youthful and brave officer. We also regret to hear a report of the death of Col. Willis, of the 12th Georgia regiment, commanding Pegram's brigade. It is hoped, too, that this may prove to
