Official from Gen. Lee.

Richmond, June 9.

HEADQUARTERS, June 8th, P. M.–The enemy has been unusually quiet to-day along the whole extent of his lines, and nothing of importance has occurred.  Two divisions of his cavalry, under Sheridan, reported to have crossed the Pamunkey yesterday at Newcastle ferry.

Signed                                                               R.E. Lee, Gen.

The advance of Sheridan’s column, accompanied by artillery, appeared last night at Chesterfield station, moving in the direction of Albemarle.1


Further from General Lee’s Army.

Richmond, June 9.

Nothing doing along our lines to-day; not a heavy gun fired up to two o’clock.  Both armies confronting each other in breastworks, with occasional picket firing.2
