HEAD QUARTERS, ARMY OF THE POTOMAC, }
Saturday, May 24.
The driving of the rebels from the vicinity
of New Bridge by our artillery yesterday, was
followed up to-day by a movement wholly un
expected to our adversaries.
A reconnoissance comprised of the fourth
Michigan regiment, Colonel Woodbury, and a
squad of the second cavalry, Capt. Gordon, was
made, which is worthy of mention.
Five Companies of the fourth Michigan,
under Lieutenant Bowen of the Topo
graphical engineers and Lieutenant Custer
of the sth cavalry, acting with the Topograph
ical Corps, crossed the Chickahominy a short
distance above New Bridge with thirty men of
the 4th Michigan. Tnis small command
succeeded in getting between four companies 01
the fifth Louisiana regiment who were out on
picket duty at the bridge, and a brigade of the
enemy who were supporting them. In the
meantime the balance of the regiment and the
squadron of cavalry a, preached the bridge from
this side, thus attracting the attention of the
four Lousiana companies, and the first
knowledge the rebels had of the near pre
sence of the enemy, was the firing from thirty
muskets at short pistol range, making havoc
with the ranks and causing a serious panic,
while the main body advanced in front anu
opened a deadly fire. The result was that 31
of the enemy were taken prisoners, 15 wounded
and between 60 and 70 left dead on the
field. Among the prisoners was a Lieutenant.
The casualties on our side was one killed, one
mortally wounded, and six slightly wounded.
Lieut. Bowen had his horse shot under him
during the skirmish.
The light brigade under Gen. Stoneman, and
the brigade of Gen. Davidson, of Gen. Smith's
division, to-day advanced from New Bridge up
the Chickahominy to Ellison's Mills, on Bels
creek. Here they encountered four regiments
of the enemy's infantry, with nine pieces
of artillery and a command of cavalry. Of
these two regiments of infantry and three
pieces of artillery were on the opoosite side
of the oteek, the balance of the infantry, which
was composed of the Bth and 9th Georgia regi
ment under Gen. Howell Cobb, were posted in
a favorable position to resist our advance to
Mechanicsville. Fittlar's and Robertson's bat
teries of the second artillery were quickly
brought in into action, and after firing some
one hundred and fifty rounds the rebels with
drew with their guns, net, however, until one
of them had been dismounted to the village
covered by their infantry and cavalry.
Four regiments of Davidson's brigade were
then sent around, but night coming on, they
they went into camp within 600 yards of the
enemy. At daylight the batteries on both sides
opened. Our men confining their,guns to shelling
the houses behind which the enemies' infantry
were concealed. The fire was so hot for the
rebels, that, they left the village, a portion
retreating across the Chickahominy.

BALTIMORE, May 26
The announcement that Col. Kenley had not
been killed in the rebel attack on Front Royal
was received, with shouts of applause by the
crowds of Union men who thronged the news
paper bulletins this morning. The secessionists
having been imprudent enough to exult over
the defeat of Col. Kenley and his probable
death, produced an intense excitement among
the Union men. A few moments since a ma-r
who made some disrespectful remarks was
roughly handled by the crowd, and there have
been several knock-downs so far.
11 o'clock—The excitement continues, and
the crowd is increasing. Two men have been
knocked down in front of the telegraph office.
One man was heard to say, "Damn you, you
have it now all your own way, but we'll have it
our way soon." One excited Union man proposed
that the government should be requested to
move all the troops from the city, and leave it
to the Union men to keep matters straight.
12 o'clock —The streets are thronged with
excited citizens. The secessionists have to keep
out of sight. The intensa feeling is explained
by the fact that the regiment which is reported
to have suffered so severely belongs here, and
the friends and relatives of the men are stung
to madness by the exultings of the rebel sym
12.15, P. ill. —The excitement continues ob
noxious. Individuals have been chased for
squares. The pursuers were venting their senti

by the police.

hang a man a few moments since in Monument
Square. He was rescued by the police.
6 P. M.—The crowd on Baltiinore street
increased after three o'clock,and several persons
were chased as during the morning, and some
were knocked down. The marshal and his
police were on the ground in large foree and

SCARCITY OF PROVISIONS AT RICHMOND.
REBEL ARMY ON HALF RATIONS.
GUNS AND AMMUNITION CAPTURED
FROM TILE REBELS.
Four deserters came in from Petersburg this
they report that in consequence of the
scarcity of provisions the army in Richmond is
much demoralized and a great number of de
sertions occurred daily. They state that full
half of the army would desert if they could
have the opportunity. The army has been
drawn from all parts of the confederacy, and
it is intended to make a desperate resistance.
The troops have recently been subsisting upon
less than half rations.
Reconnoisances are frequently made from
this place, in all directions. A recent visit to
the direction of Pig's Point discovered seven
teen guns in position at that place. They were
not spiked and were in complete order.
A large quantity of ammunition was also
discovered there. Two four-pound pieces, en
tirely new and mounted upon fine carriages,
were seized, together with other articles, a day
or two ago in an agricultural warehouse in this
city, which the owner had turned into a man
ufactory of such articles for the confederacy.
A lot of guano was also seized recently which
had been confiscated by the rebel government.
It belonged to the Peruvian goVernment and
was delivered to the proper authorities.

Ashby's Cavalry Deceive our Troops with
A White Flag.
No Quarter Shown by the Rebels.
Two members of Kenley's regiment have ar
rived in this city and report that they were at
tacked by a large cavalry force under Ashby
and several regiments of infantry, and twice
repulsed them'with great loss.
lienly's force consisted of the Ist Maryland
regiment, one seed in of Knapp's Pennsylvania
battery, three companies of the 29th Pennsyl
vania, and whilst the fight was progressing,
two companies of New York cavalry came to
his assistance. -
The fight commenced at 12 o'clock and con
tinued up to night when the infaatry force suc
ceeded in surrounding them. The first fight
and repulse took place east of the Shenandoah
and finding the force too great he retreated to
the west side, destroying one of the bridges,
but was too hotly pursued to succeed in des-
troying the principal bridge. He made another
stand on the west side of the river, and
Snapp's battery mowed the enemy down with
shell and grape. They fired in all nearly two
Kenley received a musket shot in the neck
during their first attack, but continued on
horseback until the close of the day, when he
was placed in au ambulance perfectly exhausted.
The last - fight took place about four miles
this aide of Front Royal, his effort being to
fall back in order, expecting reinforcements
momentarily from Gen. Banks.
A member of Knapp's battery who escaped
says that the Maryland regiment fought with
indomitable bravery, and that Col. Kenly led
them on frequently to bayonet charges. He
also says that on the third approach of Ashby,
he displayed a white flag until within pistol
range, when Col.. Kenly ordered them to cease
firing. The white flag was then thrown down,
and the enemy rushed on our troops, cutting
and slashing, and refusing all quarter. Lieut.
Col. Dushane and Major Miller are both re
ported wounded and prisoners.
XXXVLIth Congress—First Session
The tax on carriages, yachts, watches, or

plate and dogs were stricken out. The tax on
railways, steamboats and ferry boats was
amended so as to make the tax on steam rail
roads and steamboats three per cent. of the
gross receipts for passengers on horse railways
and ferry boats one-half per cent. ditto, and
toll-bridges three per cent. The tax on insu
rance companies was amended so as to tax Fire
and Marine insurance companies three per
cent. on gross receipts for premiums and as
sessments. Having reached the 108th section,
the Senate then adjourned till Monday.
HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES.
Mr. TRAIN, (Mass.,) considered the con
fiscation bill too sweeping in its operations, and
opposed the bill to emancipate slaves, but he
would receive them into the army lines and
use them as soldiers, or in any other way, for
the suppre,sion of the rebellion.
Mr. Tnoxss, (Mass ,) opposed the confisca
tion bill on the ground of its unconstitutional
ity and inhumanity.
Mr. EDWARD, (N. Y.,) spoke in favor of the
confiscation and emancipation measures.
Mr. RICHARDSON, (Ills.,) quoted the opinions
of the late Judge Douglass in support of the
argument against confiscation.
Mr. WHALEY, (Va.,) briefly adverted to this
