succeeded in capturing six guns belonging to

On .Monday our army flanked the enemy
and retook the -Mary's height. Hays' Louisi
ana brigade greatly distinguished itself, taking
fourteen pieces of the enemy's artillery.
We lost in all fourteen pieces of artillery,
and captured fifty-three. Wo also captured
nearly 10,000 prisoners, 7,000 of whom aro
said to bo at Guinea's .Station, on their way to
Richmond. Our loss in killed and wounded
is estimated at sis or seven thousand.

The Battle in Virginia.
We still have not received many details of
the battle of Ohanoellorsville and Fredericks
burg. The enemy have given us a hard con
tent, but the mult is a grand victory to our
arms. In prisoner.? we have captured five to
their one. intelligent correspondents of tho
Richmond papers say we have taken over l'J,
tKHi. In killed and wounded their losi is more
than ours, notwithstanding .they furled Gen.
Lee to leave his fortiliealiDns and fight them on
ground of their own selection.
Wo give below somo details of the fight,
which will be found interesting :
All but seven of the ilrft company of the
Washington Artillery were taken prisoners in
the charge on their buttery, including Captain
Squire.,, Lieut, Galbrath, and others mhosi:
name,? 1 have not vet ascertained. Evacu
ating the works on tlio heights, our men were
rallied and formed into line again about a
mile distant, and here resisted the. advancing
enemy, driving them back.
During the night beforu the fight a Yankee
crossed the river, and deserted to our side, lie
turned his blue- uniform in-dde out, and worked
faithfully at one of tin- guns of tho captured
t.;tery during the light, until, finding his
whilom jisocint.es were gathering thick and
fast ii round, tied as rapidly as hi.3 legs could

Tt is said that Hooker was on the opposite
sui'j during this engagement. IJe succeeded in
effecting this cherished object (tho capture of
the Miirye heights,) by a shrewd ruse de ynerrr.
Vn Wednesday evening and night he sent an
immense column of men up tho river, as if
intending to reinforce bis army above, but
s.int them back again during the night. Had
our small force defending the Maryo heights
been supported at all, the enemy would never
hai laieccedod in breaking our lines there.
THR HGIIT AT 7.0AK CIIlKCH.
Tn the vicinity of the village of Chancel
torsville, on this fide of tho river, seems to
have been decided the issuo of the fight.
After being driven back Thursday evening
at. Zoar Church, 7 miles above town, by a por
tion of Mc Laws' and Henderson's Divisions,
the enemy mndo a stand about Si milt further
on, i.ur troops pursuing. In this brief engage

of his column in a reclining position, and
was rising to his feet, his right hand resting
on hi kmc, when a shell struck him, cutting
off the right arm above Ilia elbow, and one

f his situation, and gave directions as to tho

Tall of Prices.
The- following paragraphs hnvo a
pleasant significant to every patriot.
Several causes havo probably combined
to reduce tho price of flour tho pros
pect of a fiqo growing crop of wheat,
now within sixty days of maturity,
the reduction of amount of circulation,
the systematic, inquiries into the amount
of food in the country, which have re
sultod ih thrdiscovery that there is an
abundanco, and -tho- ftBsrance that if
the' holders will not sell their surplus
will be impressed :
Rapid Decline in Froduce Un &or tho
operation of the new impressment act,
agricultural productions have rapidly
declined. Corn has settled at 84 20
per bushel, and bay at $5 20 por hun
dred. A very short time since $10a$12
was demanded in tho Richmond mar
ket for corn and $20 for hay. Whiy.
Molasses. A oonsiderablo quantity
of this article has found its way to
this city, and is offered for salo by the
grocers and auctioneers. In former
times good sugar house molassos sold
for ton cents per quart. Since tho wcr
it has attained the- elevated standard
of S10 per gallon.. During tho past
ten days it has undergone a fall in
prico of over thrco dollars. As the
articlo seems now to bo easily attaina
ble, it will doubtless soon get to a
reasonable price;-i(!i'cAwoiu? Dispatch.
Fall in Flour. Within tho last week
flour has fallen from fojrty-five to twen-ty-fivo
dollars per barrel. This is
nothing more than right. It has always
been too high, and only kept1 up by
the speculators. Sauhbury. (JS C.)
