What the rebels suffered The rebels left six-hundred, old heir wounded here for us to take care of and they are now being brought in and cared for by our troops. Every one of them that I have talked with tell the same old story of having been forced into the army, and that they were glad that they were out of their power.

M., there was an artillery dual between Mott's celebrated Federal battery and the batteries attached to Gen. D. H. Hill's division. Both occupied commanding positions on opposite sides of a creek. In the coirmishers were then advanced beyond the creek. The cavalry followed, and on reaching the other side went forward in advance and took position on the hill on which Mott's battery had been stationed. Discovering the enemy in force to their right, and batteries being placed in position behind some houses, the cavalry fell back acroght, preventing the fatigue party from accomplishing anything. About 2 o'clock, A. M. the enemy retired, having succeeded in carrying off two of the pieces of Mott's battery which had been previously captured by our troops, but which had not been removed, from the fact that there was no bridge, and the infantry could not be c
hos. C. James.--Baltimore Sun, 21st. Not so anxious to fight. The same letter says: Distinguished officers of the army who are here say that the troops now before Richmone are all heroes. The reported baptisms of fire and blood are upon them. They have the heart to fight, and also know how to fight. Recruits who join the ranks of the thinned regiments will be instructed as to camp service, as well as fighting by veterans. It will be no place for cowards. These, as says Capt. Mott, of the artillery, ran away on the first day of the late series of battles, and are now scattered through the North, telling wonderful tales of dangers and sufferings. An officer who ranks with the bravest of the brave, says a great number of those who have returned as sick are veriest cowards. Just on the eve of a battle they became sick. A good many of the troops who are coming on here now are mere boys. Bonaparte, in the great despairing campaign which turned against his star at Lei
