During that night he destroyed the ene my's depot at Beaver Dam; three large trains of cars, numbering one hundred; two fine lo comotives; one hundred thousand pounds of bacon, and other stores, amountn.<? in all to one million and a half of rebel rations; also, the telegraph and railroad track for about ten miles, embracing several culverts; recaptured thrte hundred and seventy-eight of our men, including two colonels, one major, and several other officers.

On the 11th he captured Ashland Station, destroyed here one locomotive and a train ol cars, engine nonse, two ot three Gov ernment buildings, containing large amounts ol stoies; aiso, destroyed six miles of railroad, embracing six culvert?, two trestle bridges, and the telegraph wire. About 7 a. m. of the llth he resumed the march on Richmond. He found th* rebel Gen. Stuart with his cavalry concentrated at Yel low Tavern; immediately attacked liim, and, alter an obstinate contest, gained possession ol tlifc Brock turnpike, capturing two pieces of artillery and driving his forces back towards Ashland, and across tbe north fork of the Chickaiicminy, a distance of lour miles. At the eame time a partv charged down the Brock road and captured the first line of the enemy's works around Richmond. During the night he marched the whole of his command Be tween the first and second lines of the enemy 's works on the bluffs overlooking the line of the Virginia Central Railroad and the Mechanics ville turnpike. Alter demonstrating against the works, and finding them very strong, he gave up the in tention ol assaulting, and determined to recross the Chickahominy at Meadow Bridge. It had been partially destroyed by the enemy, but wns repaired in about three hours under a heavy artillery fire from a rebel battery. Gen. Menitt made the crossing, attacked the enemy and drove him off handsomely, the pursuit continuing as far as Gaines' Mills. The enemy, observing therecrossing of the Chickahominy, came out from his second line of works. A brigade of inlautry and a large number of dismounted cavalry arriving at this juncture attacked the divisions of fck-ns. Gregg and Wilson, but after a severe contest were re pulsed and driven behind their works. Gregg's and Wilsons divisions, after collecting the wounded, recrossed the Chickahominy.
