It appears tb.it nfter Hie Rfbtil fort w.ii
blown up, General Ledlie's Division, of the
Oth Corps, pushed through the rulus to the
second Hue of the enemy's lutrcuchmenU,
when other portions of our army pressed for
ward and engaged the enemy on the right
&nd left of Ledlie.
The Rebels, however, still remained on the
right and left ol tlie dt'inolltdietl fort, In their
front line of lntronclimetits, of wliicli the fort
foimed a part. Thus the Rebels were able to
pour a steady fire into our troops, who were
resting In Iront of tbe.ir second line, while the
IJcbcl artillery belched forth a heavy Are fro'n
right, left, and front.
The enemy charged several times upon our
lines, and were handsomely repulsed. About
nine o'clock In the morning. General Fexrero,
Colored," Division made a charge to carry
the crest of a hill beyoad the second line ol
They advanced well under a heavy Are, but
broke and retreated in disorder. All efforts
to re foim this division were In vain. About
this time Humphrey's Brigade of Wilcox's
Division assaulted the front line of lntreuch
menta to the left of the demolished fort.
For a time they were successful, and held a
portion of the line.
It soon became evident that to carry the
Rebel works was impossible, aud about 2
o'clock P. M. our forces retired aud assumed
their old positions.
Our loss was about two thousand killed,
wounded, and missing. Wo captured two

hns remained Iu apparent deadlock la front of
tbe lines of fetersburg. The passage of the I tmcs
bad exhausted the category of possible flanking
movements with Richmond as an objective.
A movement to the left, though presenting the
high ttrateuic advantage of planting the army on
tbe enemy s lines of railroad communication,
seemed to exios too much our own coimuutii
1 ai ions to be adventured. A movement to tbe
right, so long as tbe enemy's position at Iter uuda
HuLdred wus unauilable, would oolv carry the
army once more to tbe uortlu rn side of the James.
For a season It seemed to bo Uenerai Grant's
intention to force tbe enemy by e ivalry raid to
an abandonment of his strung podtloii. II nee
followed tbe. operations of Wilson aui Kauu,

OUR SPECIAL ACCOUNT.
IBrrlHl lo Tho Kteulnir roli'r.rh.
WAsnihoToM, August 1. The Nf.iraaya: We
have Ihe following i'lterestlm; particulars of the
lighting on Saturday in front of Petersburg, ob
tained from eye-witnesses of the stirring events
of the day.
At two o'clock on Saturday morning the signal
boat at City Point coming down the Appomattox
swlf l) , aud vcutiug its well-known and peculiar
brill wbi-tle, indicated to the initiated thut some
thing wus np.
Geiif r.il Grant rose bun lolly ;'aml luountinghls
hoise galloped off towards Petursborg, to Meade's
headquarters, some eight mi cs distant from City
Point. Other par les, anxious to witne-i tin) an
ticipated event, imtncdia.ely followed as rapidly
About tlires o'clock the stillness of night wu
brcken by an artillery Are, of no great, fervor,
however, and wb'1 on the surface bore no
significance, as befug uutbiug more than the
routine compliments of the morning to tho enemy
about 4 o'clock. However, the cannonade on
our jaif assumed a viorthat must have warned
tbe rcier-.burgira and the enemy there congre
gated that something serious was about to trun
spiie, and nboiit twen'y minutes lat..r something
t-ciiotis did transpire, In the explosion of Grant's
mite, :oca'ed under the main fort In front, or
rutin r a bt'lc to the left of the front of Burn
stib 's position.
Gur Informants state that the published ae
com ts to the effect that the earth was blown up
five hundred feet by the explosion, and that the
report "awakened Uictmiond," shaking tha c irth
us by an earthquake for miles away, is all
The mine was laid very deep, and tho explo
sion, though i ffective and destructive, was distin
guish! d by none of those pyrotechnic effects
given it by tbe band of fancy. The earth was
thrown up in a brown cloud about one hundred
feet, aud at the same time a low rumbling sound
wai hiard, bcurlng no proportion iu weight to
the roar of tbe cannon.
The sound of Ibe explosion was not even heard
at City Point, and the fact of the explosion of the
mine was not known there until the arrival of tbe
train from the front. A pause of twenty minutes
followed upon the sptingingof the mine before
the charge was made, by our troops, who then
sprung forward to tbe first hue of intrenchmeuts,
winc h was curried, and they pushed on to the
second line, exposed to a murderous eutilading
tiro Hum the enemy's batteries.
Hi te it was that the negro troops, who hid '
earned a good name in previous service, and who
had asked the privilege of leading tho advance,
row tied bclore the terrible lire, aud fell back iu
Our Iom was pretty heavy in the fighting
betactn the iiitren' huients, amounting to o.ie

Itrdsy, llnd we bKik three hundred prisoners In

The Kebels appear to have been informed as to
the diiecil'iti iu which Grant's milling operations
wtru rnntilng, as shown by tbe fact, that
Ihiy b d removed twelve of tao sixteea
guns belonging to the fort exploded. TUe
story that Petersburg was burned ou Satur
day is uot true, sc hear. Casual shells may have
struck buildings and fired them, but the town
us not deliberately shelled, as reported.
Tuuugh Grunt has not succeeded in accptn-pli.-hiug
bis purpose in this initial attempt ou tho
works of the enemy, and is apparently no nearer
Petersburg than he was before tho explosion of
his mine, be really has gained possession of in
formation as to the enemy's position that, com
bined with the destruction of the principal forti
fies' ion defending Petersburg, places him muc
nearer the accomplishment of his work. I
There was no firing after 2 P. M. oa Saturday
and there was only desultory firing after S A. M.
Our troops were back where they sturted from
before 11 A. M.
Since writing tho above, we bava information
that the explosion was admirable, realising all
Grant's expectations, but we failed to reap the
advantages expected to follow upon It.
Tbe report that tbe negro troops behaved espe
cially bad Is not corroborated by our biter
information, which suites that they behavod no
worse, at least, than others.
The hospital steamer Cusct!cut has arrived
with four hundred aud thirty-two sick aud
wounded from the hospitals at City Point, In
cluding thirty-seven ollicers, most of whom were
wounded in tbe fighting on Saturday.
General Bumslde is reported slightly wouuded

Fkhbonal. We are pleased to learn by a pri
vate letter, that Colonel W. W. II. Davis, lOtih
Pennsylvania Volunteers, is now at his homo in
Pucks county, and that his wound, received
while at the head of his brigade in tbe recent
attuck on Charleston, is now rapidly Improving,
it is feared that the Colonel will never lie able to
use bis ri'bt bund aguin. This Is tbe second time
Colonel Duvls has been wounded. He has com
manded a brigade for over eighteen months, and
we ttust will soon receive tbe star which be so
justly merits. His loss, though only temporary,
is deeply felt in the brigade. An officer writes us
from tlie lbVh Pennsylvania Volunteers: "I
never knew anyone missed so uioch. Wben it be
came known anions tbe men and officers that he
had lai n seriously wounded by a shell from ths
Rebel butteries, every one seemed depressed and
disheartened." This Is a noble record, coming,
as it does, from one whom we know to lie a man
of truth and honor, and himself respected by all
who know him.
