Oftl' nl are ju?t recaire 1 by thi? department dated ycatcrdsiy at eight o'clock Ji. ?t tho battle fkld. near Spotfcpylr.inia C?ahH?W* Ibey state that duriaf tt?e aigUt, General Hancock mwcjed from hh previous position on our right and occupied the ground between Generals Wrig.it and Burnslde, at daylight, he attacked jrlth hi* accustomed impetuosity, forcing tbe tret and then the seoond line of the enemy's works, containing the whole of ltd ward John* son's division and part of Early's, together with Mqor General Johnson, General Stewart, and from thirty to forty cannon. The number of prisoners is not given, but It is to be counted by thousands. Gen. Burnside on tbe extreme left opened at, the same time with 'Gen.' Han&ebk, and ad* vanced with oomparatirely little opposition. EUe right taw formed a janotiou with Gen. Han cock, and his left Is how actively engaged. General Wright's treope attacked at a quar ter pest seven o*elock, and art now at work. ? General Warren Is demonstrating to bold the enemy In front of his lines. The rebel works at that point are exceedingly etrong. ' i A despatch has been received from General Butler, dated "In the field near Chester Station, Vs., May 11; 8 ?.M. It state? that be is now pressing the enemy near Fort Darling and has before Urn all the troops from North Carolina and South Carolina that have got up. Beauregard's courier was captured this morning going to General Hoke, in command of Drury's bluff. He had a despatch stating that Beauregard would join thom as soon as the troops came up. General Gillmore holds the intrcnohments while Smith demonstrates upon Orury and the enemy's lines. General Kauta, with his cavalry, has been sent to cut the Danville railroad near Appo mattox station and can perhaps advance on James river. We have had no telegraphic communication with Geoeral Sherman sinoe Wednesday. EDWARD M. STASTOX, Secretary of War. h * - ~r? ' ' ' MORE DETAILS. NejlB Spocts YX.T ant a, May 12?8 A. M. The day opened this morning with the fol lowing news sent in the form of a despatch fkpm General Hancock te General Grant:? Gmmuis ? I have captured from thirty to forty guns. I bave finished up Johnson, and am now going into ?arly. W. J. HANCOCK. As I write the whole line Is engaged; but the heaviest firing is being done by Hancock's corps. Major General E. Johnson k a prisoner. He commanded the "Stonewall division," in Ewell*s corps, composed mainly of Tirglnia troops. No doubt of his capture exists, for he is sit ting on a log before me at the present moment, in conversation with some of our generals. Tbe attack Was commenced this morning at daybreak by Hancock, who moved forward his whole line, and is now driring the enemy. Brigadier General Stewart, of the rebel army, has also been captured, and is now within our lines. The artillery firing In the direction of Gen eral Hancock Is increasing in ertent and ra pidity. A considerable portion of the Fifth corps is actively engaged, and are doing well. Ei.cvbk A. M The battle continues with great fury, but we ar& steadily gaining ground on ths rebel* Tbe Sixth corps has gone to the relief of the Second, and are now actively engaged at the present moment. Tbe musketry firing is tremendous accom panied with heavy salvos of artillery; evory Inch of ground is being sharply contested and nothing can exceed tbe rerocfty of the contest. Heavy fighting is progressing near General Grant'* headquarters. The captured artillery are being brought to rear, and tbe roads loading to the different corps hospitals are filled with soldiers who have been wounded at tbe front, and are seek ing after medical treatment. A drenching rain set in about nine o'clock, but it seems to have no effect In abating the fighting ia tbe front. The roads are knee doep With mud, and very unfavorable for military operations. A rebel battle flag has jost been brought In to headquarters. It belonged to tbe Forty* second V r^nla regiment, Colonel Withers, Johnson's division, and contains the names o f the different battlos in which the regiment took part. Tbe flag was captured by the Ninety third N?w York regiment, Colonel Crocker. Thirteen of the captured gun* have been brought in to General Grant's hea 'quarters, and others aroplaccl In iff" rent positions in the r? ar. They are excellent pieces, to good condition . and are very similar la appearance i our own. Culow'i division, of t?e Second corps, per* formed ft brilliant lent this morning ?t day> light. They advanced during the night and boforo break of day made their appearance directly U front of the r.bel in reaohments. They charged, aad before the enemy had time to Are a gun they wore surrounded and surrendered at onoe. Our men had to climb over their breastwork* and nee tbo butt ends of their nnuketa to bring the rebel* to subjection. ? General Wright is slightly wounded, b?t fa still in command of the Sixth corps. ADD! TIONAk. Twkltk O'Clock? Noon. There has been for the put half how ft brief lull In the b*tUe, but the iadieeUoas are that it Willi Bhortly be renewed with rigor, and wilt continue all day. Everything seems favorable, aad both offi cers and men are in good spirits. Oar loeaes in the past eight boars have been very heavy, but it is impossible to form any oerreet estimate of them. The accounts of our losses vary from 18,000 to 25,000, but owing to the nature of the eon test, which is mostly in the woods, thousands may be lying dead or wounded1 on the ground, of which no record oan be made at present. As I write heavy flriug is heard on our loft, and it is thought that toe rebels are try.ng to turn our left flauh. We advance, but hard work is before us. It is thought tbat on to-uorrow night the game will be up with the rebels. GRANT! Official Despatch of Seoretary Stanton to General Dix. An Entire Rebel Division, With Its Major and Brigadier Generals, Captured. Two Batteries of Artillery AUo Taken. ? Gen. Warren Neither Killed Nor Wounded A ?h kt.t 4* Seer* Is ry Btmmtmm to mmfrr Oiural DU. Washington, May 13-8:16 P. M. I To M^jor General Due: ? No despatches from tbe Army of the Poto mac bare been received since half-past eleven o'clock last night. General Sherman baa not been beard from, owing probably to tbe damage to the line* south of Nashville by tbe recent storm. A despatch from General ShetW.an,- dated "Beadqnartera of the Caaalry Corps. Ma y 10," states that be turned tbe enemy's right, and got into" their rear, had destroyed from eight to ten miles of railroad, two locomotive* and three trains, and a very large quantity uf sitjrplies ; and that since he had got into the rear there was great exoitement among the inhabitants and with the army. Tbe enemy s cavalry hud tried to annoy his rear and flank, but had been run off, and Ke had recaptured five hundred of our men, two of them colonels. No despatches bare been received for two days from General Butler. Despatches received fipom General Steele report his command as baring arrived at Little Rock. He had Tongbt a superior foroe of the enemy, commanded by Klrby Smith in person, at Saline river, and defeated tbem. A steamboat from Red river arrived to-day at Cairo reports reinforcements going up to General Banks. General Canby bad passed Cairo on his way to Red river. EDWIN M. STANTON.
