TELEGRAPHIC  REPORTS OF THE PRESS ASSOCIATION

______________

FROM PETERSBURG.

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
