--The Superior at Bloomery--The Confederate loss, says the Winchester Virginia, in the attack on Bloomery, Hampshire county, was two wounded and thirty prisoners. The Yankees admit the loss of seven killed and fifteen wounded. The Confederate militia were surprised.--Colonel Scincludiver, of Berkeley, was in command. He escaped. The names of the prisoners taken by the Yankees are as follows:

Col R. F. Baldwin, Capt Lovett, Capt Wm Lodge, Capt Willis, Capt Beard, Lieut Col McCoole; David Carper, Isaac Carper and Chas Duval, of Capt Eddy's company; Chas W Bush, of Capt Bitzer's mounted militia; Jas Bell, of Capt Lodge's company; Thomas Steele, David Gratze, Adam Lawyer, Joseph Knight, Jos Ritter, and Buckner Massey, of Capt Pierce's company; Wm Jenkins, Geo Clark, and Wm Helland, of Capt Willis's company; Samuel McKown, of Capt Lodge's company; Lieut R. L Gray, of Capt Bear's Winchester company; and Jos McCartney, of Winchester.

Our troops, after the engagement, retired to Pughtown, in Frederick county, where they remain — barring a few, who, with overdone prudence, retired to their homes, and are probably still there.
