ve them in great confusion, but was himself seriously wounded while nobly leading his brigade, the command of which then devolved on Lieutenant-Colonel Hobson, Fifth Alabama. Cook and Cox continued to advance, swinging to the right, driving the enemy in their front, with but little resistance, for upward of half a mile. Cook captured several cannon, caissons, ammunition, wagons, etc. This movement left a wide interval between Cook's right and Battle's left, which was subsequently filled by Pegram's division. In the mean time, Grimes' brigade was recalled from the left and moved by the right flank through the abandoned camp of the Eighth corps, which had been completely routed; faced to the front and advanced to the pike, connecting with Battle's right. This projection was perfected about sunrise, the enemy being then in position on a small creek to the left of the pike, with their artillery on a high ridge in their rear, and firing into our line of battle, but the smoke and fog obs

esident Davis. We now have a full confirmation of the news, by the last European steamer. She reached-Southampton on the 21st of November, with the "rebel" flag flying. On her voyage out she fell in with the American ship Harvey Birch, from Havre, bound to New York; and after taking the captain and crew on board the steamer, set fire to the prize and burned her to the water's edge. The "prisoners" were set at liberty on their arrival at Southampton. The Nashville is commanded by Capt. Robert B. Pegram, C. S. N., a native of Virginia and a gallant officer. It is stated that he communicated with Mr. Yancey directly after his arrival at the British port. A leading abolition paper of New York intimates that the Nashville is "fitting out" at Southampton, and may, very possibly, waylay and capture the steamship Arago, making captives of Gen. Scott, Archbishop Hughes, and Thurlow Weed. Another takes up the alarm, and says that "Government ought to lose no time in dispatching steamers
