Upon our attempting to relieve picket the enemy concerned it into an advance and opened fire.--This roused our troops, who joined with the pickets in responding, and the firing because as general for ball an hour as though Serb armies were engaged in a struggle for the mastery. An occasional gun was heard during the night, but it amounted to nothing more than such random shots generally do. During the engagement Capt. Marshall, of Fauquier, commanding Stribbling's battery, was painfully, but not seriously, wounded. A Minnie ball struck him in the mouth, carrying away two or three teeth and lacerating the flesh. This is the only casually that we have heard of. At an early hour Saturday morning our troops succeeded in capturing one of the enemy's picket posts, and took twenty-three Yankee prisoners, who were forwarded to Petersburg.

Butler is a gentleman and a man of his word, he will fulfill to the letter every promise; he is a man of strong feelings, but when a friend he is a friend indeed, as when an enemy he is an enemy of the most bitter kind." Up to Saturday last, Mrs. Copeland had not received one word of reply from the Beast, nor do we suppose she ever will. From Gen. Lee's army. The following official dispatch was received yesterday morning: Hanover Junction, May 23, 10 P. M. Hon. James A. Seddon: About noon to-day the enemy approached the telegraph bridge on the North Anna.--In the afternoon he attacked the guard at the bridge and drove it to this side. About the same time the 5th corps (Gen. Warren's,) crossed at Jericho Ford, on our left, and was attacked by Gen. A. P. Hill and his advance checked. R. E. Lee.

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 o

Butler visited the house, accompanied by a body guard of eight hundred negro cavalry, and spent nearly the shole of one day on they were also assured that their property should be protected. The Beast had the duplicity to add to Mrs. Copeland, "General Butler, Madam, is a mate of his word — his pledge is his bond, and whatever he says you may rely upon." With this assurance,d every imaginable article of any value carried off. Upon ascertaining her losses, and how grossly the solemn promises of Butler had been falsified, Mrs. Copeland addressed a polite note to the Beast, reminding him of his assurances. This was handed to one of his Staff, who faithfully promised to deliver it, and at the same time added, "Gen.
