THE WAR NEWS.
There was nothing done at Petersburg yesterday, not even the late customary shelling.1
There is no war news of interest. The Yankees are still busy lying over their disaster at Reams’ station.
A dispatch from Louisville on the 30th announces the capture of a company of Yankees six miles below Gallatin by Wheeler.
Wheeler’s force is estimated at from five to twelve thousand men.2
