[From tbe Richmond Dispatch, June 1 . 1864 I The confidence fell by our whole population In the brave army which stands between us and Grant's myr midon* was never more oonsplennusly displayed than yesterday, when It was thoniht that a general nettle waa In progress. Not a man am-med to doubt bow It would terminate. There waa bo fear and ecarccly any ensile ment. That the defeat ef the enemy waa to be tba re sult of a battle seemed to he regarded as certain. I hat Grant oould make his way Into tbe elty through General Lee's army no man appeared te consider within the raugn of possibility. Ihe army have tbe same eonAdenea In themselves and faith In their commander. It muet be a much larger foroe than Grant commands, and a muea greater general than sianda in hia ahoee, thai eon over come such a force, led by such a general The confidence In l?e and his army is net eon fined la the rank a of tbal army and to our fellow clllrens.

Colonel Iligglna (in all four hundred men), the latter colonel oommandlng tbe movement. The foroe moved from Wlacbeeler, and oo the lOtb met lb* enemy at Moorfleld. A Qgbt here took place, in which we got decidedly the beat of it. Tha rebel* giving way, our force* proceeded to retire. But It seems "ihe battle" waa only half won. It remained for another practical test to decide the enrrecineist of our officers' conceptions. Tbe rebel*, being strongly reinforced, baatoaod alter our retiring troop*, and mal thorn at a gap between Wardouvllle and Moor flolil. Here another light enaned, and our four hundred men wore forced to enoounler a portion or Imboden'a regi ment, While's battalion, and McNeil's guerilla party, amounting In all to at least thirteen hundred m?n Cbargea were unde by both partus.
