, 2d reg't, killed. The color-bearer of the 1st La. was killed. I could not learn his name, but he is the same who was captured at Gettysburg, and put his colors under his shirt, and thus saved them, and afterwards escaped. The country where the fighting occurred is densely wooded, and similar in every respect to the country about Chancellorsville, it being, indeed, but a continuation of that description of country. During the fight Gen. Ed. Johnson had a horse shot under him, and Gen. Stuart was slightly wounded, but soon resumed command. There was, also, some cavalry fighting at the upper fords on Friday, but it did not amount, I think, to much. The wounded began to arrive here yesterday evening, and were being sent off all night last night to Gordonsville, where they will be properly cared for, it being impossible to provide for them here. You have, of course, heard of Gen. Rosser capturing seventy wagons near Wilderness Tavern, fifteen miles above Fredericksburg
y and three hundred cavalry, besides some straggling infantry, made their escape, our captures here amounted to some 2,500 men. Our artillery in this action was served most gallantly, and did fine execution. Fourteen out of sixteen men manning the section of Demeritt's battery were killed or wounded, among them Lieut. C. S. Contee, commanding the section, as also Lieut. Col. Andrews. The remaining members of this section staid at their posts, and, assisted by Lieut. R. W. McKim, Gen. G. H. Stuart's A. D. C., and Lieut. John Morgan, 1st N. C. regiment, both of whom volunteered their aid, worked one piece (not being enough to work both,) till the close of the engagement, using grape and canister often at a distance of not more than fifty yards. This singular action, says my informant, closed about fifteen minutes after daylight, and was fought on ground unknown to either party, and for half the time in almost utter darkness. At daylight, in pursuance of orders, Gordon's Geor
pressing the battle with desperation. Our loss to day is not very heavy, as we have been fighting mostly behind breastworks. The enemy are fighting in the open field and their loss must be terrible. Hill's whole corps has been extensively engaged all day, recovering in some instances the ground lost by other troops, and Mahone's and Lane's brigades, about 2 o'clock, made a most gallant charge, capturing about 300 prisoners and a number of stands of colors. Gens. Ed Johnson and G. H. Stuart are missing, and are supposed to have been captured. About 3 P. M., the firing ceased in front, and in a great measure all along the lines, and it is supposed the enemy are gradually moving back. [second Dispatch.] Battle Field, Spotsyl'a C. H, May 13,Via Guiney's Station, May 14. The battle yesterday lasted all day and late into last night. Our men, after a temporary repose in front of Johnson's Division, successfully resisted every onset of the enemy, who repeate
The late Major-General Stuart. The City Council on Saturday unanimously adopted the following preamble and resolutions, offered by Gen. G. W. Randolph, who prefaced their introduction with some appropriate remarks: Whereas, The people of Richmond, in common with their fellow citizens of the Confederate States, have to deplore, in the death of Major General James E B Stuart, not only the loss of one of the first military characters of the age, but also the loss of a citizen whose emineStuart, not only the loss of one of the first military characters of the age, but also the loss of a citizen whose eminent patriotism and pure life gave the best guarantee that his great military capacity would never be otherwise employed than in the cause of freedom, and for the welfare of his country And whereas, they not only recognize this, their great misfortune, in common with the rest of their countrymen, but bearing in mind that he yielded up his heroic spirit in the immediate defence of their city, and in a successful effort to purchase their safety by the sacrifice of his own life, they are profoundly m
y. Laurel and Point Branch bridges on the Washington and Baltimore railroad were burnt by the rebels on Tuesday, and the railroad, cut in five different places. The Chronicle says it will take some time to repair the road. Sumner, of Mass, was on board the train with Gen. Franklin, but not being recognized escaped capture. The Chronicle says the crack of the rebel rifles are heard in the very environs of Washington. A letter from Nashville, dated July 7th, says the final and decisive battle for the possession of Atlanta must shortly ensue in the vicinity of that city, and adds should Johnston stand, Sherman will probably cease flanking and deliver battle. Owing to the interruption of the telegrapic communication the Chronicle has no dispatches north of Baltimore. Generals Ed Johnson, G. H. Stuart, Frank Gardner, J. J. Archer, and Jeff. Thompson, have been placed under the rebel fire in forts near Charleston. The Florida has captured five more vessels.
