TELEGRAPHIC REPORTS OF THE PRESS ASSOCIATION
PETERSBURG, June 29.—A prisoner who was brought in to-day reports that a portion of our cavalry engaged the front of Wilson’s cavalry at Dinwiddie Court House, yesterday, in a hot engagement, in which the enemy’s loss was forty wounded. It was supposed, from his statement, to have been a Confederate success. It is also said that part of Wilson’s force was at Lawrenceville, Brunswick county, last night, trying to get out towards the Weldon railroad. There has been a cavalry fight below here to day, near Reams’ station, but the results are unknown.
In front the situation is unaltered.1
