Tbe operations? of oar forces under Major General Bancook ou tho north stJ8 of tlia James rlvor to day have keen of a very Interesting and important character. Tno troops on both 8idt s have been very skilfully handled. Ihcy 'have had hard fighting and ho ivy losses. Tho hardest fighting took -pi ace la front of Uu enemy's works, ?ear Flussier's millnoud, betweeu the CentraH and Charles City roads; but spirited skirmishing also occurred ap the Cb&r'.os City road,, wboro U is crossod by Deep Bottom creok, a&d near White's x'avoru, about seven Miles froau Richmond. From Strawberry Pl&jns, where tbo troops were mar ?balled, they had already moved out in column and do ployed lu such a manner us to command tho three principal thoroughfares from this vicinity Into Rich ?a nd. It U obvious that tho policy of tho eooroy, u Q ? 4er theso circumstance.-:. would be to nnatuuvro his forces so ns to moot thosj dispositions. And the result feaa been tLkit moveiuams and eiuntor movements luvu been m&de on toib sides, wi:b alternate temporary ad vantages and reverses. KSCONNOrrSKIS.l? ORBGU AITP KIIH. At .n early hour a recoanoifsanco in cons irtorublo farce Was tna.'o up ibe Charles City road for the purpose or de veloping the enemy's strength and psition, with a vigw to a vigorous assault whomever a favorable opportunity Blight be afforded. General Gre?g, to executing the or tfsre for this movement, marched bis cavatry command ?long the Cbarles t i!y road ns far as i eep Ho, turn creek, Wbare it was joined by a brigade of infantry under tieno ral Miles, of Barlow's division, and then, both cavalry aid infantry operating in conjunction, moved upon tbe ?uamy. Bo was drtvori by our forces from tho creek, ?nd continued falling back, with on occasional bait and ?bow of resistance. CAVAX.KY now. While our cavalry was tbu3 following up tbe retiring aoomy there was one poiut where a nau i was attouipted. the enemy's cavalry was being disposed t ? meet us, ?rh?n the Sixteenth Penasylvama, la Co'onel Gregg's brigade, ?barged down the road. No sooner had they hoard tear bugles sound the charge than the rebels tastily departed. Th?y were part of General W. feL F. Leo's cavalry division, tbe brigade im mediately confronting Gregg being commanded by OK!?KRAL CHAM!', LISS. This rebel general endeavored to rally bis troopers, feat without avail; for when tho head of our charging Column was clote opon tbe rear of the :ly!ng fugitives be was seen almost alono upoo tbe Held, where his meu had deserted him while bo was striving to rally tlinm. It was an exoiting scono ? the oolmaa of our cavalry dasli Mg forward on tho field, the rebels retreating, and thsir (eueral, at tbe post of danger, attempting to inspire them with bis own courage and high se^so of mlnt.iry honor. Bat a bullet soou killed his horse, and auother rlorced thi breast of tho youthful general. He died almost instantly, ?ad his body Is now luour possession. He was a graduato ?f the Military Academy at West Point, in the class of 1152, but, anxious to substitute tbe Joys of domestic life far tbe vicissitudes of tbe service, be resigned his com Mission in the Mounted Rifles on tbe 4th of M.trch, 1654, Several years before this civil war broke out, and re.irod to private llfo. After tbe rebellion bad begun, and tbe Booth made a strong appeal to her cbivalric sons to un ?feeath the sword In her defenco, a controlling sense ?f duty to bis native State? which Is Vir ginia ? much more than a desire to wage war agaiost our government, Induced him to take an ?stive part in tbe present contest. Be was n man of *u parlor education, warm domestio and social ? (Tec lions, ?xqulsitf manner*, temperament and tastes, and through ?at bis whole career he manifested a high aonse of honor, Moral rectitude and Christian obligations. It Is a and bat suggestive contemplation that so elegant a gentle Man and good a Christian fell lighting f.ra cause in whose ?e'enre bo must have entered not without reluctance. Upon the body we fotnid a valuable milltarv map ami a pocket Testament. It appears to be clc.irty manifest Mat he mast b?ve bad some strange forebodings of his aabappy fate: for on the fly leaves of this pocact lea; a Mant he had written first bis name and rank, "J. It.

'If 1 am killed In thn struggle, will some kind ffrtaod deliver this book to my dear wife'' J R. C., Jr., Joaa 8, 1KM." tbasa are the passages of Scripture, in bis own biindwriting:? "So teach us to number our dnvs that we may apply our hearts unto wi-tlom."

We are in poesesslon tc-nlgbt of the dead bodlea of two rebel gcneralsf four rebel buttle flags, four hundred pris oners, sad are advanced beyond the yosltloo we held when operations opened this morning. TBS DETAILS. At an early boar this morning the right of thst portion of the Tenth rori* operating with Hancock moved from the position held oh the morning of the lfith to a point to the lett and rear of the rebel works, advancing at the same time about two miles from tbs old position. Two brigades of tbo First dlvlsloo (Foster's) and, I believe, Ton's or Coan's, stoutly charged the (1 ret line of works, Into which the rebels had Just previously been victori ously driven. These works were Immediately la front of tbo extreme right of our lire', and wore m<>at hi: <l?unc>iy carried, together with the capture of a number of prisoners.
