[ASSOCIATED PRESS DISPATCHES.] ARMY OF THt POTOMAC. Enfmy'? Attack on our Trains?Their Dis comfiture after a Severe Engagement? Knmber of Killed end Wounded. Headquarters, May 20?G a m.?Tbeattack on our flank last night was tor the purpos* of seizing ocr trains and causing a stampede. It was partially successful; but as soon as troops reached the scene the enemy were driven oil", after a severe engagement. The forces engaged on our side were a portion of the second corps, consisting principally of the new tr ops that have just arrived, among them the 7th New York atti!ler?, 1st Maine, and a Massachu setts re* iment. Onr loss whs about 500 killed and wi unned, some say i,ooo. Mostofthemen fought well, although there were som*1 excep tion . The enemy had possession of a portion of the trains, bui helore they pot them otf they were retaken. The rebel "force consisted of Hood's division of Swell's corps. We took about3f;0 prisouers. This was the only fighting done yesterday. * Another Letter. [Correspondence of tha Associated Press.] ^ Headquarters Army o? the Potomac, Zy J?-?A chaplain come iti yesterday from the hospital of the 2d corps, it tho Wilderness batile-firld, and reported that over i'our hun dred wounded belonging to that corps were fetal 1 in hospital there, and that they were en tirely out o! provisions, besides having no medical supplies whatever. Representations of the facts were made to the commanders, aud to-day it is reported they will be brought in. It is said that Lee wilT not recognize a flag of trnce unless it emanates from Grant, as he considers him the commander of the army. The report of a large number of wagons having been captured by gnerr lifts turns Out io be incorrect, arising from the circumstance that o\er sixty wagons loaded with supplies hed disappeared, but it was found that they had gene toward Washington in company with artillery sent thither. The mistakeciused a good deal of anxiety here, as the supplies were wanted at the front. The Sanitary Commission are now doine a good work among the wounded, although they w?re much at fault during the first. The or ganization had proved a valuable auxiliary to the medical department. An attack was made last evening on our right flank by the enemy, but Warren's corps met and drove them hack. The attack caused some interruption to the transportation on the road, and teams returned to Fredericksburg on the donble quick, but none were captured, as it was reported. It is useless for friends to come to the fr*bnt at this time to procure the bodies of those who Jjave fallen jfl battle. The request Is denied in all CftSrfi. All are carefully buried, and their ( names pieced upon a board, 89 that friends can find them after the army nas advanced. FROM EL'ROPE.

Tlife Richmond Enquirer of Thursday con tains the following: Lee's Address ts his Troops. We mnst refer to the letter of our correspon dent for the latest items from Gen. Lee's army. It will be seen that nothing of serious impor tance ,has transpired since the great battle of Thursday last, except, perhaps, the movement of the enemy upon Massapouax church, al ready announced by Gen. Lee, and the mean ing of which will soon be developed. Gen. Lee has issued a most encouraging series of congratulatory orders to his army, which will be found in the letters alluded to: The following orders has been issued in Heth's division: gekeral orders?no. ?

K. K. Leb, General. The FightonTuesdnjr. About three o'clock p. m. yesterday ashore and shaip fight occurred on the enemvs ex tieme left wing, lasting about llfteen minute-:, with heavy and incessant musketry and can nonading. The firing occnrred whilea charge was being made by Wright's, supported by Harris'brigade, on a hill about halt a mile in our front, which it was desirable to obtain for a purpose. At the given word of command Wright's tri gace charged across the intervening space, as cei ded the hill, and drove the enemy from their breac-tworks under a most severe Ore. While the brlgadeoccupied the works, which were held sufficiently long for the object of tbejr capture, It was" subjected to a rapid shell ing by the enemy, alter which the order wa<* given and the l riptide withdrew to the line which they had previously occupied. General A R. Wright being unable to take the field by reason of a severe attack of rheu matism, the brigade was commanded by Col onel Hall, of the Third Georgia Regiment. Seventy five prisoners and three stands of colors were captured from the eierny and brought off. The killed and wounded wem oonsideiable, hut wehava no means ofascer taining the number. Our loss was a hundred and Sixty.one, twenty.on^ of whom were killed. The loss was sustained chiefly by the Third Georgia Regiment. The prisoners captured Thursday and T** terday ^frere sent to Kichmond to-day. One lot numbered upward of thirteen hundred, in cluding forty.one officers, among whom are seveial colonels.

This simple statemei't will show our readers that celerity of movement, as well as vigor of action, Hid not desert our cause when Stonewall Jackson dted. % General 4. O. Jenkins Not Killed.

Jackson's Old Brigade. The Stonev, all Brigade has suffered terribly in the battles of the present campaign, only three hundred men being left in the brigade.
