Reports of May. General John A. Dix, U. S. Army, commanding the Department of Virginia, with congratulatory orders.

FORT MONROE, VA., April 19, 1863.

I deem it due to the force at Suffolk to notice briefly their gallant conduct during the last six days. O Tuesday General Peck's right was attacked and the enemy's advanced was gallantly met by Colonel Foster's light troops, driving him back to the line of his pickets; Anderson's division was engaged at the same time on the water front with our gunboats and batteries, and suffered materially. On Wednesday a rebel battery of 20-pounder rifled guns was effectually silenced, and an attack on the Smith Briggs, an armed quartermaster's boat, was repulsed. Reported attempts have been made on our lines but have all been foiled. The storming of the enemy's battery near the West Branch of the Nansemond by General Getty and the gunboats under Lieutenant lamson of the Navy, and the capture of six guns and 200 prisoners closes the operations of the six day against the enemy's large force very satisfactory.

Major-General.
