GRAPHIG AND OTHER MATTER
EXTRA
FROM THE FRONT.
Tfcc cflkiai bulletins given elsewhere show
teat there- have been no military operations of
importance carried on lor the last three days,
mainly on account of the condition of the road1;.
The skirmishingon Saturday&udSunday mom
leg was 'or choice of position on our left center.
On Saturday the enemy, by a sudden dash, got
? position frcm which it was determined to
dislodge them, and in the eveninga column,
Jed by Gen. Ayres' brigade, was sent to regain
it, which was dote without serious loss, and a
proper for^e put in position to hold theground
gained.
The roads are described as In a frightful con
ti.ticn, delaying the progress of the reinforce
xr.ento going to Grant, very few of whom had
reached him cp to yesterday morning, but by
this time they must have joined him in sufficient
Slumbers to form a very handsome addition to
Mis amy.
It u believed that some reinforcements are
teaching Lee, but act in any degree commen
surate with his oeeds, and there is no doubt !
Ircm the weakness shown by the Confederates
at other points in the Confederacy where they
are being pressed that pretty nearly the ex
tent of its resources in the way of fighting
had be^n hurried up to Ijte 8 suppor^
previous to Grant'3 advance, leaving very
little reeerve for him.
Advices received lrom the Army of the Po
tomac to yesterday morning speak of the ex
treme difficulty of discovering the exact posi
tion of the enemy, who are very cautious and
Aa*e availed th^irselves of the cover of dense
woods to conceal their operations?their pick
ets only bemps-?en.
We further learn that none of the prisoners
in pa?su;g from the front to Belle Plain mide
their escape?so efficiently wtre they guarded
iro? headquarters.
Sued ay var spei f. as a day oi rest through
out the Brmy, but a small skirmish took place
t>efore Its close.
it is evident, frcm ail account?, that each
party is narrowly watching the o'her to ascer- i
lain t!:e positici: and probable movent; nts of
its opponent.

Jess than '.',500 men.
I waited till they got into easy shelling range,
and opened upon them a heavy fire of shrap

EUTLER OPENS THE BALL AT FORT DAR
LINO.
THE ATTACK ON THAT FORT COMMENCED
WITH EVERY PROSPECT OF SUCCESS.
THE GUN BOATS CO OPERATING IN THE
ATTACK.
The steamer Guide arrived this afternoon
from Fortress Monroe, and reports that Butler
lias opened the ball, commencing the attack on
Fort Darling, the gunboats also taking part in
the attack.
The siege is progressing finely, with every
prospect of success.
THE THIRD AND FOURTH DIVISIONS, SEC
OND CORPS,
A report Paving got circulation that these
two divisions did not come up to the mark in
the recent lights, it is due to them that the mat
ter should be set right. In the second day's
fight they were ftn the Brock road, and had
thrown up two lines of works, when Long
street's entire corps was massed in their front,
and at 4 p. je. commenced a furious assault on
the first line. Our men, after expending their
ammunition, were forcsd to fall back on the
second line. Here they stood their ground
manlully, and before dark the rebels were
beaten off with^reat loss, we losing heavily
also. Some unauthorized person, seeing the
first line tail back, carried word to Gen. Grant
that both cf these divisions had broken, and
orders were about being issued to march them
to the rear; but at this time a message from
Gen. Hancock that ail was right restored con- j
Science: and remembering their hitherto untar- j
niched names in the old Third corps, they went i
in with a will, and eoonsent tho enemy (Long
street's corps) flying before them. The rebels
were confident of success, and assaulted the
iir.es of these two divisions with such impetu
osity that it was feared that we would have to
give way, but alter reaching our second line
the 5ri*n were immovade; and to the courage
of these two divisions is much of our success
owing. Both officers and men behaved ad
mirably under the circumstances, as did the
commanding generals?Mott and Birney? and
their staffs. Capt. Hart, formerly of ttie 7th
jNf-w JiTtoy, Assistant Inspector General of
Gen. Motfs division, was among the wounded.
MORE WOUNDED.
The steamer State of Maine arrived at the
Sixth street wharf this afternoon with t> 16

belonging to the Sixth Corps. The most of them

A Furgeon returned from Fredericksburg,
reports the greatest difficulty- in properly caring
for the wounded. Indeed, he says if it were
not for tlit- Sanitary and Christian Commis

to r.c properly attended to.
The roads leading to Fredericksburg are in
an almost impassible state, in consequence of
recent heavy rains.
AID FOR THE WOUNDED.
The German Belief Association, ever on the
alert with aid for cur wounded, to-day sent

Mr. Dawes, of Massachusetts, took the
ground that su few persons voted at the elec

election, The largest part of the people had
no opportunity to express themselves at the

Mr. Segar, of Virginia, said he was admitted
to a seat in 1S52, at a time when he had re

the Chairman of the Committee of Elections
now endeavored to rule him out. He claimed
that precedent was in his favor, and that the

NARROW ESCAPE. Of 'GENERAL MEADE.
CAPTURE OF THE (i ALT HOUSE.
[Dispatch to the Philadelphia Inquirer.j
Two MiLEP NORTHEAST OFSFOTT9VLVANIA
Court Houeh, May 11, SX a. m.?A battalion
of regulars from the 5th corps are engaging the
enemy on the extreme left. Gen. Meade has
just come up.
Nine a. .m.?General Grant has just arrived.
Troops are coming up and getting into posi
tion. The rebel line of earthworks can be
seen about five hundred yards beyond an old
house, which is directly in our front. On them
art* a number of rebels working industriously.
A number of wounded rebels have been gath
ered in from the vicinity of headquarters,
where they have laid on the field for several
days ; many have died from exposure.
A rebel batterj' has opened upon our men on
?he lelt, and one ot our batteries is replying.
The weatner is showery and chilly. The
roads are so'muddy that a wagon sinks nearly
to the axles, and trains can barely move on
with half the usual load. An occasional shell
is thrown within our lines, and musketry fir
ing has entirely ceased. Colonel Upton's
Eripade of the Sixth corps, is our advance.
One p. m.?Everything is quiet. Our trains,
in consequence of the muddy roads, are com
ing up very slowly. Three hundred Regulars,
ot the Eitth Corps, charged upon the rebels
this morning, ana drove them from a house
occupied by them. This has been all the fight
ire we have had to-day.
The country into which we have come to-day
Is a very line one, well watered, abounding in
rich pasture for onr horses and cattle. Head
quarters are established for the present at the
deserted bouse of a rebel, within two mlle3 of
the Court House, and near to the Fredericks
burg and Spottsylvania Court House stage
road.
3 !?. m .?Our men on the lelt adjoining Upton's
brigade have just been attaoked by the rebels
and driven from the house which the regulars
tock this morning from the rebels. An attack
was then made by our men, upon whom the
rebels massed a large force and succeeded in
driving them back.
A rebel battery was subsequently planted
there, and we lost a number of our wonuded
and some prisoners, but during the day we
have captured about one hundred rebels and a
rebel Major. Gen. Meade was on his way to
the Gait House when our men were repulsed,
and narrowly escaped being captured, so great
was the rebel force stitddenly hurled upon our
maa.
May 15i 6 a. m.?The Gait House was again
retaken last night by Acres' brigade. The
position is a strong one, and was retaken with
but lit'le opposition. All our troops and trains
are now up, and we are looking for another
desperate fight.
The Rebels are again entrenching along their
front.
