on; but, thanks to the superior conduct of Gen. Fitzhugh Lee and his noble brigade, it has failed; of, however, without the lose to us of such noble spirits as Majors Pelham and Fuller. (Signed) J.

The less of the enemy not known, but believed to be very heavy. Among those killed were Major Pelham of the artillery, and Major Puller and Lieut Harris, of the cavalry, the latter from Powhatan county. Their bodies were brought to this city last night. Col.e fight report that the enemy's force consisted of two divisions, under Gen. Averill. The principal part of the engagement was between the cavalry of the opposing forces.
