To-duy Gen'l Burnside began the attack on the left with great fury, and an en couraging degree of success. He had a fight the day before, in wbich, to use his own words, he "whipped old Longstreet." A courier came In lrom Gen'l Butler yester day. About 15,000 cavalry, under Gen'l Sheri dan, started coon after. They will engage the rebel ravalry, circumnavigate Lee's army, and join Butler. Our army could not be In a mora cheerful condition. Every man is sanguine of success, and tbey count the days when they shall in triumph enter the rebel metropolis. The rebels, on the contrary, have l03t all their old buoyancy, and seldom indulge in their pe culiar shrill and demoniacal yells. They fight with sullen brows, like men who find even hope forsaking them. General Lee lately issued an order in relation to supplies, in which he said communication with Kichmoiiu was cut off, and it was im possible to furnish the men with stores. Hill s corps had no rations issued for three days. General Lee enjoined upon his men the neces sity of capturing supplies from the Yankees. Up to this moment they have failed to capture a single wagon. The roads are in excellent traveling order, but very dusty. I have failed to see a single wagon abandoned. Our movements since crossing the Rapldan may have seemed erratic to the soldiers, who counted the miles marched over by hundreds. All the battles thus far have been a series of attacks and repulses. Musketry was almost entirely need. The ground being swampy, ar tillery was impracticable. Lee very absurdly claims a victory, when he withdrew from our front and marched towards Richmond. Our army moved with them along parallel roads, coming in deadly contact with them at Todd's Tavern, near Spfttsylvania Court House. Gen. Torbett's division of cavalry whipped the rebel cavalry near this place, and drove them from Spottaylvania Court House. But, reinforced with infantry, they drove our cavalry a short distance?the Maryland brt gade, 1th division, Gth corps, coming to their support. The fighting was exceedingly fierce. Gen. Torbett and Gen. Robinson were both wounded, and are now on their way to Wash ington. I regret to announce the death of so valuable and efficient an officer as General Sedgwick. He was shot through the head this morning, while superintending the mounting of some heavy guns in an angle the men had just pre pared. There was no skirmishing at the time, but an occasional sharpshooter sent a bullet in that d.rection, which caused the cannonier to wince and dodge. General Sedgwick was near by, with some of his staff, and twitted the man about his nervousness. "Pooh! man," he said, "they can't hit an elephant that distance." Immediately after the ball struck him, and the blcod began to ooze from his nostrils. He smiled serenely, and fell dead in the arms of his assistant adjutant general. His body, and General HayB's, have been forwarded to Washington. The hemorrhage in the rebel army has been horrible, while our own is of no mean magni tude. All through the Wilderness they are strewn, and the fires kindled by the bursting of shells consumed the mangled bodies of the antagonists. In these several encounters with I the rebels we have lost the present use of over 1 35,000 men. In Fredericksburg, at this writing, there are over li>,000of our wounded. Sunday morning they began crowding into the town. Mr. Slaughter, Mayor of the city, and Mr. Mayer, of the celebrated heights near Freder icksburg, in the full zeal of their patriotic hearts, rallied a few guerillas and marched 3C0 o- our wounded into the rebel lines. Poor fellows ! theirs is a sad fata Hungry, thirsty, and weary they were when captured. How much wore* are they now! Mayor Slaughter and several other promi nent citizens are now in the guardhouse at I redericlreburg. Pontoons float on the Rap pahannock, below Fredericksburg. ToAquia Cieek, where the transports lie, is eight miles. Guerrillas abonnd throughout the country. A report gained credence here this (Tues day) morning, that our cavalry bad captured a train of cars near Guiney's Station, sent from Richmond lor the rebel wounded. The track was torn up. This movement across the Rapidan is the most brilliant and daring in the annals of the war. Nothing could be more dangerous than a Hank movement by our army while Lee was In Iront with bis long heavy lines. It was daring and successful. Every officer and sol dier is sanguine The utmost confidence is re posed in Grant and Meade. ARMY OF THE POTOMAC. FRIDAY'S BATTLE.

General Sedgwick, WriahfT?hn0f* di^?ions, Rickett'l and Wright s, has fought upon the right; General Hancock, with the four divisions of bis corps, ?f,H ^?ey. B'^arr'8' Barlow'a and Gibbon's, with Getty s division of the 6th corps, has f0wfbK. d??m the ,eft; tand General Warren, with his mil corps and Stevenson's division of the 9th corps (Burnside's) has fought in the center. Burnside's corp?jas constituted the reserve, and has marched and counter-marched incessantly, and gone in by brigades at the center and on the left. Sedgwick was to advance at 5 a. m., but EweU, who commands opposite to him, attacked at 4.45. Sedgwick says Ewe It's watch must be 15 minutes ahead of his. This action on our right was spirited and well fought. At the expiration of an hour the rebels were hand somely borne back, the firing ceased, and each side held the ground they had bivouacked upon. Our loss was severe, and the enemv's could not have been lets. Gen. Sedgwick's Staff were brilliant and ubiquitous throughout, while the old General was the man of Antietam and Fredericksburg repeating himself. This action barely over, and suddenly we heard from the extreme left that peculiar monotonous swell and volume of sound whiah tells of large numbers engaged ?so many that single shots and even volleys of long lines are not diBtinct, but are merged in the mighty noise of a great battle, Hancock was engaged. The details of his two hours' steady struggle I do not know, bnt 1 know that he did his work cleanly and completely. Longstreet had joined the Rebel right, and this was a second deter mined attempt to turn oar left, and a second utter discomfiture. Only 10 o'clock and Lee had tried each wing and had met in each case more than he conld overcome, and we asked ourselves what next. AH his movements were silent and Invisible, 411 nn ?.own until he developed them in the event. We can deliver blows over in the di rection whence blows are dealt us?not against an enemy advancing in bold sight, but against sssss>5r?s?n;o^rhm<l But the suspend Is not long. Both combat ants are too eager to compel the issue for either to delay another and still another encounter. Shots begin to ring all along the six miles of front. At 11 o'clock the enemy press close upon Warren and fiedgwlsk, and train a number of guns exactly upon the latter's headquarters. A man and three horses were killed within twenty feet of the General, and In the very centre of his grouped staff. Finding the enemy disposed to renew the engagement of the early morning, Sedgwick accepts the challenge, and advances his whole line. .The men go in with more dash and hold on more sturdily than In the morning. Eweil is driven back to his seo ond line where hia guns are In position, and there makes a stand. It is noon, and Sedgwick's second fight is 4>yer, and he again rests on the line of his last nights bivouac. Wads worth advances and finds the enemy?A. P. Hill's corps?strong and prepared The divisions on his right and left become engaged with him, and the work is "warm. Here, as elsewhere, the contest Is in a tangled jungle, and the soldisrs push aside the bnsbes and find mortal enemies bursting through the admitting growth of bashes, and faoe to face with them. Half or three-fourths of an hour alternating succevs and repulse, and (Jen. Wadswortb orders a charge to recover his command from & flight -wavering. He is cheered loudly by his men who loved the gray haired chieftain. One fcorre is (hot under him. He moants a second and spurs to the front, hat in hand, and we should have won then, but his men saw him tall. He was shot through the head, Killed instantly, and his body 1*11 into the hands of the enemy. . , , His command fell back to their original po sition with comparative order. from noon until 5 o'clock a number of sharp assaults at various points were made and in variably repulsed, whether made by us or by the enemy. Each on? of these affairs were material for a long letter, bnt I And it simply impossible at this time to ascertain and write out correctly tbe facts in detail. Prisoners came in at the rate of one hundred an hour. The day was excessively hot, and the men w< re much exhausted. We ha1 neither gained nor lost pro and, butcontinued this thing long enough, and we hoped to finally wear them out At 5X o'clock Hancock was pre paring for a grand movement of our entire lelt. He did not make it, for the enemy anticipated him, and he had to repel perhaps the most wicked assault thus far encountered?brief In duration, but terrific in power and superhuman momentum. The first few minutes we were staggered. Stragglers for the first time in all this fighting streamed to the rear in large numbers, choking the roads and causing a panic by their stam fede and incoherent tales of frightful disaster, t was even reported at general headquarters that the enemy had burstentirely througQ, and supports were hurried up. Grant and Meade, seated, their backs against the same tree, quiet ly listened to the oflitser who brought the re port, and consulted a moment in low tones. The orders for sending reinforcements were given, and for a little time not a word was spoken in the group of more than twenty offi cers. They bnt looked into each other's faces. At length, Grant says, with laconic empha sis, ? I don't believe it." He was right. Long before that Hancock had recovered from the first shock, held his own awhile, and now was paining ground. In forty minutes from this attack the enemy was completely beaten back with tremendous slaughter, and the loss of some hundreds of prisoners. It was now nearly sunset. From one end of the line to the other not a shot could be heard. The day's work seemed over. Our line of to? night would be that of last night. The augu ries were good. In two day's fighting we had lost heavily, but no more than the enemy. Our assaults had been futile, but the enemy's had been equally so; and It is by these massed assaults that he ha? ever achieved his victo ries. The inference was clear that we had over matched him fighting at his best and strongest. Men separated in the he at of the day, now chancing to meet, congratulated each other. Tbe Rebels can't endure another such day, and we can, was the expressed conviction on all nande, and this statement epitomizes the situation at sunset. The sun went down red. The smoke of the battle of more than two hundred thousand men destroying each other with villainous salt petre through all the long ho^rs of a long day, filled the valleys, and rested u^on the hills of nil this wilderness, hung in lurid haze all around the horizon, and built of dense canopy overhead, beneath which this grand Army ot Freedom was preparing to rest against the morrow. Generals Grant and Me tde had re tired to their tents. Q,uiet reigned, but during the reign of quiet the enemv was forgiug a thunderbolt. Darkness and smoke were mingling in grim twilight, and fast deepening into thick gloom, when we were startled out of repose back iutd fierce excitement. The forged thunderbolt was sped, and by a master. A wildrebelyell away to the right. We knew they had massed and were charging. We waited for the volley with which we knew Sedgwick would meet the onset. We thought it but a night attack to ascertain if we bad changed our position. We were mistaken?it was more. They meant to break through, and they did. On Sedgwick's ex treme right lay the -2d Brigade, 3d Division of his corps, under Gen. Seymour, who had been assigned to it but two days before. The brigade is new to the Sixth Corps, and is known as the Milroy brigade; connecting on the left of Seymour by Shaler's and then Neil's brigades, the latter being a brigade ot Getty's division that had not been sent to Han cot k. These troops were at work entrenching when fallen upon. The enemy came down like a torrent, rolling and dashing in firing waves, and flooding up againstthe whole Sixth Corps. The main line stood like a rock, but not so the extreme right. That flank was m stan'ly and utterly turned. The Rebel line the longer, and surged around Seymour's bri gade, tided over it and through it, beat against Shaler, and bore away his right regiments. All this done in less than ten minutes, per haps not five, Seymour's men, seeing their pickets runniug back, and hearing the shouts of the Rebels, who charged with all their chiv alry, were smitten with panic, and, standing on no order of going, went at once, and an in credibly short space of time made their way through a mile and a half of woods to the plank road in the rear. They reported, in the frantic manner usual with stampeded men, the entire corps broken. Grant, as in Hancock's case, did not believe it. Bnt when three of Sedg wick's Staff rode into army headquarters sepa rately, and stated how they had ridden from Sedgwick's to keep Seymour's men to their work, had been borne back by the panic, and had seen Sedgwick and Wright hard to the front working like Trojans to hold the waver ing line, the situation appeared more critical No word came in from Sedgwick. It began to be feared that he and Wright, disdaining to fly, were prisoners. Artillery moved quietly to commanding po sitions, to be prepared for the worst, and cool heads felt that were the whole 6th corps broken, the army, as an army, wonld still be invincible. Warren's corps is instantly, but in perfect com posure, disposed to meet the situation. Grant and Meade and Warren are in Grant's tent, to and from which officers come and go with a certain earnest air that bespeaks urgent and important cares. So during an hour. N* firing has been heard the last three quarters of an hour. The rebels must have ceased to advance; but how far have they penetrated, and what is tbe present situation 7 The 6th corps' flag comes in. Where Is the 6th corps' chieftain 1 My watch says 10 o'clock at nignt. A dispatch received. John Sedgwick safe. Wright safe. The 9th corps holds a strong line; only Seymour's and a part of Shal;r's brigade have been broken. The enemy can do nothing more.- The 6th corps proper has not lost its pristine glory. SATURDAY'S REPORT. Flight of the Rebels. [Special Dispatch of the New York Tribune.] WiLDEBBBSB, 5 p.m.,Saturday, May 7,1864.? Up to this honr there has been but little fight ing to-day. Our position this morning was unchanged from yesterday, excepting that the right had been bent back. Sedgwick's affair last night has in no wise disconcerted the plans or onr leaders, depressed their hope, or impaired the efficiency of the army. It was bnt a disas trous episode. This became clearly apparent when the morning disclosed the fact that nowhere on the line was the enemy pressed up against us; they had daring the night withdrawn from the battle-field, leaving us free to occupy nearly all the ground where lay the slain. He had retreated, however, only to another line, where be evidently challenged an attack. He has played on us all of to-day with long range guns and has kept a bold skirmish line in bis front. Large parties Have been seen all day day at work eutrenohing just in Warren's front. 2,000 qt 3,000 men have been digging all day upon a hall a mile line, from watoh several solid shot have been thrown nearly to army headquarters. Lee's success cn our right mast have been so greatly overbalanced by his repulse on oar left an hour before, that he did not dare risk another day on the same 8oand. He oonoedes bythU quasi withdrawal at he Cannot longer stand the battle when he felt able to precipitate it. About two o'clock tbe rebels made a demon stration upon o'ur right flank, penetrating near ly to tbe plank road, and threatening commu nications with Germ ana. However, we had cleared the road ot everything valuable, had removed the pontoons, and probably did not care to prevent the rebels from occupying. I am not permitted to speculate in regard to Grant s plana and probable movement?. He. will, however, make a vigorous assault yet to-night. Lee's generalship has been magni fied. His main force waa at Orange t House. He moved simultaneously with i* rant and as rapidly. Wednesday# night he bald tfei Mine Ran line. Grant had put hla amy over tbe Rap klan, and 5th(Oorpa Headquarters that night were where Army Headquarters have been since. Lee menaces onr line of march, and Warren steps oat and lights him. Next Lee hurries everything to his right to penetrate between Warren and Hancock, who vu marehlng from Chancellorsville Foiled in Uie attempt, tie adoDte the ijittn of masked massed assaults, li aten througn two day* at bis own (amp, bo. last night, re tires, entrenches and invites atfa -k where the fround is unknown to ns, ftmiUir to blm. bat Oraut and Meade, working in thorough concord and concert, have m^t and thwarted him at every tnrn is sufficient commmt upon tber generalship. Thisfact must b? ominous to Lee ? f the fate In store for him b?fore thia campaign shall close. It is a remarkable circnmstanoe that daring three days of battle*, the artillery reserve has remained quietly parked three mile* to the rear. The artillery attached to the Corps has been ten times more than could be broughtlnto action. The cavalry has had considerable lighting, and has done important service- It has hung upon our left, ba* kept Stuart at bay, has at tacked him when it has been possible to reach him. Sheridan's business was to protect onr < immense stores, which were mainly in the rear toward ObancellorBville?to prevent Stuart Irom raiding around ns toward Fredericks burg; In short, to take care ol that enterprising rider, and thrash htm if he could be brought to an encounter. The imperative part of this business baa been well and vigilantly attended to. Wilson's division rode into and drove a por tion of the entmy's cavalry on Thursday on the road to Rob? rison's Tavern. Our loss was tomr 300?the 5th N?-w York suffering the most, r-hetidan seems to bave tafren the cavalry ren s with a master's hand. > r d < be tsst gain ing tue confidence of ?be cavalry corps I sus pect a general cavalry light m*y b^ contested far down on the enemy's right before many days, for I know the destruction of Stuart's rower for mischief is considered important to the carrying out of the campaign In the shape contemplated. THE BATTLE UFSUNDAY. Wjlpkrskss Tavern, Sunday, May ? There was considerable skirmishing dnrtng yesterday afternoon between the two armies, !tnd late in tbe afternoon Geo. Hill made an attempt to get b*>twern Gen. Sedgwick on our right and the Rapidan, but was repulsed* though at one time it was thought best to let them succeed, as they aurelv would have fallen into a trap. The enemy's lines towards dark looked weaker, and by 9 o'clock p. m., It was discov ered that the entire Rebel army had fallen back towards Spottsyivania Court House. Our cavalry started in pursuit, and by day light to-day our corps had commenoed to mora lorward. I stop the courier to add that I have just heard that our cavalry are skirmishing with Gen. Lee's rear, beyond Pine-tree church, near Spottsylvanla village. It i* the impres sion here that unless his presence is demanded near Richmond, Gen. Lee has fallen back to the North Anna river for a new defensive line. COWORBSSIOHAL.
