FROM THE FRONT.
Bbborb PgTBKSBcno, September 4, 18?_
No outward signs betray the movements or
intentions of our foe. Some of Early'? men
are reported to bave arrived, and the re
mainder, it is stated, will soon follow Lee.
Tbis continued silence is unusual, and basa
world of meaning. Opposite our extreme left
a large fort suddenly looms up before our line,
and points a battery ef thirty-two pounders
towards us. Other points show signs of Uve
enemy's activity and industry, telling us in
almost express words, that Atlanta may bo
abandoned by Hood and taken by Sherman,
but Richmond, the rebel metropolis, will never
be forsaken by Lee, nor captured by Qrant ;
all of which wi.l be more fully known here
There is little droht workmen are steadily
employed in biillo'ng a junction between the
Weldon and Soutnside railroads. A place
about fifteen miles from Petersburg, and five
miles from Reams' Station, is said to be the
spot selected for the junction of the two roads.
The performance of such a labor is quite easy,
when tbe greater portion of a corps could be
detmled to build tbe road. Th- is probably
one of tbe main reasons for the present quie
tude along our extended front.
While tbey are attending to this matter, we
are steadily progressing in laying tbe City
Point railroad, wbich will be soon completed
to tbe Yellow House, or Six Mile Station. This
will save a vast amount of labor. Mules and
men can scarcely stand this constant teaming
of fiiicen or twenty milee, over indifferent
roads, often made impassable by heavy rains.
New men are being drilled in the manual of
arms every day. The weather Is favorable for
such exercise, being cool and delightful. About
sixtv prisoners were sent off to-day, tbe pro
duct of small scouting parase, who seldom re
turn without a prisoner or two, gathered up
during tbeir ride. Owing to tne known un
healthy character of this section of country,
and the great accession of new men, to whom
the soldier's life is unknown, every sanitary
precaution is taken to prevent the banefnl
effects of malaria, Quinine ie used in liberal
quantities, end with apparent success. The
sick and wounded are shipped off regularly,
so that tbe few patients remaining in tbe
different hospitals receive excellent attention.
