the la4st News frOR Richond.
We learn the following bteresting fact from
a gentleman who a just,.iarrive.d, hav&lg left
1ichmond on 'the same train with the Predent
ad the tabinet.
The evacuation took Olce as before stated.
Heavy fighting had preceded tilfe efent fo two
days, and it is saiA that owing to the bad gton
of one of our brigades4the enemy broke through
our lines on the South side, and swept down them,
for 4 distance of three or four miles. Th'e troops,
on the NortI side, had been prdiiously removed,
except.a sufficien't force to maintain a show of
defence.. During these engagements we suffered
heavily, the ground being obstinately contested.
Lieut. Gen. A. P. Hill and Gen. W. H. F. Lee, a
son of Gen. R. E. Lee, are reported kill-, and
Maj. Gen. Gordon, mortally, wounded. .AcGow
an's brigade is described to have been in the
thickest of the tuziult, and to have paid "dearly
for its heroism. A fact mentioned in connection
with the death of Gen Hi, is that after his fall
the Yankees rushed upon him tb cut the stars
from his coat, but our men rallying drove them
awky and resculd the body.
.In the.city of Rithmond the evicuatiou was
sudden, altipagh anticipated, and hence, many
periovs were caught by the-sprise who- would
gladly have come away. Gen. Breckiiridge and
General Lawton, the Secretiry of iWar and Quart
ermaster-Ceneral, on leaving the . city, went on
horseback to the headquarters of Gen. Leg. Xer
chants tbrevO open their stores td our soldiers,
and valuables were freely given to the men.. The
agency"6f the South Carolina Central Association,
under the direction of Col. . P Jones, was like
wise opened to the army and the troops permitted
to 9ipply' themselves with' blankets and clothing.
All the tobacco'in the city was burned by or
der ot General Ewell, save such quantities jp
were bought by faviKes to be used as a medidm
of'exchange which was permitted to be done. to
he extent two hundred pounds each.
Judge CamibeU-ot AlabaTa, the Assistant
Secretary of War, it'is feared, is left b'ehind, but
no certainty exists on the subject

been previously removed, The Tredegar Iron

heavily on th* merchants and citizens.
The list train left Richmond on Monday moin
