Dodd it Co. , on Saturday Light, who.o they found thirty two boxes, such as were described in the loiter. After Ike boxes were opened tbetr contents wore" found to con stat of four hundred large navy revolvers and one hun dred ud thirty Ore thousand rounds of flxod amtnunl ?too for tbe same am. Among the captures mado at Mm same plaoe were tho great soal of tbe Order ?f tbo "Boos of Liberty," tbe official list of the ?embers of tbe Order, at tbls pUce, mod several fcuadred primed copies of tbe ritual; a so a large amount " " character, wblcb may jr time. Tbe people much these unmltlga sooundreis desiro peace, thirty thousand navy Yers, with ammunitioo enough for an army, coupled With tbo negotiations of Mr. Yoorbees 'or the purchase of twenty thousand Garlbkldl rltles, would indlcato that there in a good deal of tbo disposition of tbo tiger bid ??dor their sheepskin garb ofj peace. When wo look at tne large sum of money wblct^tbo amount of arms and ammunition named la this letter nust oosl, the que*tlon preVents Itself of the ways aud ?leant. Tbo pistols alone would coet close on to oue mil lion of dollars at manufacturers' prices, and tbe twenty thousand rifles, without tbe import duties, would cost two hundred and eighty thousand do.Iars. Of course no ?neb sums are provided by tho members or tbe order in tbls State, but there have been some peace commissioners Eiwltng along the Canada border for several weeks. John Walker, and otber peace men or Indiana, have been iltlng them. Some months since the Confederate gov ernment borrowed fifteen million dollars In Europe, for which they Issued oottua'feonds, and every blockade vnnaer carries out cotton to repay the loan. Tbo object of tbo loan was, primarily, to purchase a navy in Euro Man ports, looludtag tbe celebrated rams. That specula tion having failed by the refusal of tbe governments of bgfaqd and France to permit tbo rams to depart, and tboy having been sold to other persons, tho peaoe com felsa toners are la funds, and tboy oould not make an in vestment more to the advantage of their mister than to ynrobase arms and ammunition for Northern traitors, and to pay Northern demagogues liberally for shrieking for peace, rrnA^peech and liberty. William H. Harrison, secretary of the Order or which 11. H. Dodd Is " Grand Commander," was arrestod, aud Is still In custody. Messrs. John J. Parson and eh, trios 1*. Hutchinson, i art ?or* of Dodd, were also arresied, but were discharged on tbelr affidavits tbat they were not members or the Order, and wore not advised or the contents of the b xee.

This morning wore verified tbo suspicions excited durlog tbe nlgbt that the enemy was railing back. Re connolsaauoos showod that he h is selected a now post firm about two miles! back of bis late one, and Is there lntrenoUlnrf, purposing no doubt to wait there for us to attack, having bad unquestionably enough of this kind or busmen during his most discomfiting defeat of yes terday. Tim IIKI.D OK TBSTBRDAV'S COHFLICT. The falling back of tbe enemy has afforded good oppor tunity to riiie over tho field or yesterday's conflict. We have had a great many battle fields in this war, apd the scones they have presented have been appalling beyond description. No battle field, covering such limited tercitory^ however, oan l<e cited in this war where evidences of a terrible struggle and desperate oarnago have been more marked and fearful. Tbe dead lay aa they bad fallen, not singly and scatteilng, but In heaps, In some places two and threo deep. This is no fiction? it is ths tragedy of war ? tbe closing scene of a day's dreadful drama, a grand tableau or the dead. Dead horses, brokon oalssons, swords, musketa and all tbe dread paraphernalia of battle, gave tbe finishing touch to tbe picture. Thoee who took a view of the field? and I find on oonverstng with rebel wounded and prisoners brought In lata last evening tbu they give tbe same figures? now estimate tbe enemy's losses of yesterday at from four to five thousand. Parties from our side have been busy all day burying our own and tbe enemy's dead. There are many rebel dead atlll on tbe field unburled. ink aassL colors captt^bd. !n my despatch or yesterday I lusdvertently omitted to mention the number of rebel colors captured during the day. There were six taken altogether. Four are now at our headquarters. The remaining two have not been brought yet. These flage all mlenged to South Carolina * regiments. Ons was taken by tbe Adjutant of tbe Third Delaware; the second by Sergeant Shilling, of tbe same regiment, and a third by Captain Hatch, or the Seventy - sixth New York. The galling fire to wbieb tbeee flags were exposed, as welt es the rebel regiments respectively rallying under their rolde, is atteeted by the bulletholesg through them. One new one. and probably never bavin sr been under Are before, had fi(ty-alx butletboles through ncABB or COLOXBL mcmr. Colonel Tilden, Sixteenth Maine, captured a second tltqe by the enemy alnce oar arrival here, has bad the good fortune to mak^fe second escape. Captain Davis, of his regiment, captured at the same time, escaped with blm. With others of our prisoners they were on a train of oars three miles beyoud Petersburg, preliminary te being taken to Richmond. It was late In tbo evening and dark, and tbe two managed to work their way uuobsorved out of tbe car, notwithstanding tbe vigilant guard placed over tliem, and, dragging tbemaelvea unnotlood into seme bu?ho8 near, remained there until the train lert, when they set about finding their way Into onr linos. This was a matter of no Utile difficulty and peril; but they over came tbe dlflluultiee, defied peril, and made gooU,tbeir escape. Tbe Colouel's return was a pleasing surprise, not only to tbe remnant of his regiment which bad escaped oapture, but to everybody knowing him. THK RRilBL W0UKPBD- TUH nOSQTAL.
