I'ttr, nnd r I.leu tenant O'Donnull, and the Ventre g etionof Xufioleon light twolve-i-oundert, und :r Lieutenant Stewart, were then brought into |* Bition, and the whole battery blazed away at the work. The enemy continued returning the fire, *nd for some time tho cannonade was kept >-p on b.ith sides with great spirit, Captain Unit's men behaved in a gal I ut manner. After firing nearly two is airs the enemy's guns were stleneed, and ours gradually discontinued ibeir lire. All of the enemy wlm had tieen seen w ere **atleel, am! the lort pre-ented the appearanc < of being entirely ler* of hla SUIT. including thu French royal representatives, had cumo upon the ground, went forward personally in an ox i* .so I position, ami complimented Captain Mott and his men in a very Mattering maiiner for lhr> alac 'ity and bravery which they bad dis.dayod ut their guns. A (Vw shot* bud been exchanged between the skirmisher*; but a tor the aneiuy ceased tiring hostilities on both aides were discontinued for scve.ul hours. Subsequently it was determined to throw a body of trocps into the work and hold tbo p isilion, which aecinod In be vacated. Four batteries of light artillery, com mauded respectlvfly by Captains Ay res. Molt. Kennedy and Wheeler. Cat >tain Ay res. the senior ofliror, being in ch ii go of them ail, wheeled into line in the open Held. forming almost a semicircle, and being on either sole of tl;c two Ull chimneys which mark the ruin* of Mrs. Harrow's b use. Tins residence had been burned by order of Uie robel (leneral Mugruder more than two weeks ago. The batteries were then within about six hundred yaids of the enemy's works, wltli no obslruc ttobs for nrtillery in front. Six rt m|iaiiies of the Third Vermont regimont bad been previously deployed as skirmishers In the woods, the lino forming a larger semicircle, about a mite Hi extent from the batteries to the road. They wore continually exchanging shots with the enemy, who hsd similar skirmishers out in front in the woods. It should be observed that while Ihe wot It was apparently deserted the enemy lay coucealed under cover, and had received Humorous remforcemoula during the fow hours previous The other four com(inntes?li, K, F and K, of the Third Vermont regiment?had been placed In reserve to the l ight, a little in the rear. About three o'clock Colonel Hyde was ordered to take tbeee four companies, advance under oo ver of our guns, cross the creek and storm the work. It was arranged that when they should have entered the fort a signal from tbem would indicate that reinforce- I metits should be eent to bold It. The four batteries opened a ronoerfed Ore on the fort, throwing shot, shell and spherical case into it in mold succession. Then those four companies of the Third regiment advanced, dashed into the water, which in some places came up to their armpits, and proceeded to storm the work. At this moment an Immense foro# of the enemy, who had laid low all this while, confronted our men, shooting them down In the water. The brave little baud stoo l tbelr ground nobly, and not withstanding that many had their cartridge boxes soaked In Mis rlam, they crossed over and drove the enemy out of the rifle pit or lower line of thu intreuchments. This position they held against a murderous firs for partial* twenty or thirty minutes. At length a large body of rebel reinforcements, consisting ol two or three regiments, was seen advancing from the rear into the fort, and, for some unaccountable reason, our reinforoemruts not appearing at tbo proper moment, the bravo battalion was oomiwlled to fall back before superior number*. We suatained oonalderabte l< ** both in croaalag mkI recroaatng the dam, bat to what extent It la lmpoxelble to tell at prerent. After the remnant of Iheae com pan lee returned, our bntlertee, which ) had In the meantime reused firing, opened In full force again. Then the Sixth Vevmoul regiment waa ordered to iwrm the work by the left tlnnk. l>ed by their gallant Colonel l>ord, the Sixth regiment rushed Into the water. Huron coinpanh-e had gotten in and aomo b id r-itched within nhont three rota or the breuatwork, wlien, lielng In thro# feet of water, th?y wi re immediately met by the fire oi a hug une of rebel rifle* which were pepped above tho pnrapete.

Not a man ol on re flinched, hut all returned the Are of tho eucmy wlih deadly effect. Wherever a head waa put above the parapet they fired at It. Hence the rehala wero moally hit In the head ex i opt thoae killed and wounded hy ehella, wli li inurt have been considerable.

GKNKHAI. ORDKR?NO. 36. llKAixjOKTRRM Hncottn CiciOADK, April 17.1862. The Brigadier General commanding congratulates tbf troops of this brigade for the conduct exhib.tc i by tbcm yesterday while under Are. The invincibility i f spirit shown by those companies exp -s?d io a terrific Ore from ti.e enemy sheltered in rifle pits is worthy of the highest admiration. Tlio conduct of First SergeanUloltnn, Company I, Sixth Vermont, in securing and bringing back the color* of ttu regiment, after the bearer was shot down, is deserving of wi octal not'ee as a praiseworthy and daring act. Soldiers of Vermont! iet your future conduct rival that of yesterday, and your friends and Stale may well be proud of you. Hy order of the Brigadier (lenerai Captain Molt reports that en the lflth his battery Are* 064 sh its, about half of which were case shot, the rw matador shell. Captain Wheelor reports that be Are* .113 shots . 126 of which were case shot, the remamdei shall. Between Ayers' anil Kennedy's batteries ubeut 460 shots were tired. Thus upwards of 1,700 projectiles were exploded over and In the enemy's batteries; and. as our artillerymen agree that the practice was excellent, wo hare good reason to believe that the enemy'a loss must bo very heavy. Molt lost seven horses. Lute last night several companies of the enemy made | very sudden appearance in front of thoir work at the scene of tlio encounter on the 16tli, and fired a volley across towards where the Second Vermont regiment lay in l ho eilgc of a w-hhI. Our pickets answered in a very lively manner, and the enemy dispersed. What waa the pur|iose of this mysterious movement no one knows; hat it was perhaps a leeler to sue bow soundly we slept tight guns stood all day yesterday in the open fteld opposite the enemy's position, and it is possible that, if w* hud b -en caught napping, he might have made the at tempt to steal a battery. Nobody was hurt on our aid*. Every one is sufficiently we'l disposed to indulge in these days of rest. Our position here is a very ploosaul one: piuu trees sba-ie us in every direction, and, in the open fields, the light, sandy soil is covered by a growth ofilet- irsacfi cntt **!?. . <1 t ilf?fl>41Tl it*T I llffifl vnlvBl WIlAB our men lie in the open field :hry And the a m nncomfort ab.y hot . but tho'-c in'h- wood* are a* happy at possible.
