HEADQUARTERS,

Near Petersburg, July 1, 1864.

Honorable J. A. SEDDON,

Secretary of War:

General Beauregard reports a feeble demonstration made by enemy on a portion of general Johnson's lines about 5 p. m. yesterday. His skirmishers, supported by two lines of troops, drove in our skirmishers, which were re-established at dark. In the various conflicts with the enemy's cavalry in their late expedition against the railroads, besides their killed and wounded left on the field, over 1,000 prisoners, 13, pieces of artillery, 30 wagons and ambulances, many small-arms, horses, ordnance stores, and several hundred negroes taken from the plantations on their route were captured.

R. E. LEE,

General
