The next rebel works, about three

draw the enemy to one point on our left.
This baring been accomplished, a grand
advance was made by portions of the two
corps, mostly by a Hank movement from
our right upon the enemy, concentrated
on our left ; and the line was carried
wi.h the capture of sixteen guns and
about a hundred prisoners. Among these
was the rebel major in command of the
post, who was wounded, ami who ac
knowledged that they were taken com
pletely by surprise.
Our entire loss is estimated at about
seven hundred and fifty. That of the
enemy is probably considerably less on

A division of the Eighteenth corps is
stated to have suffered considerable loss,
but to what extent is not known.
Our troops hold the position, which is

At 11 o'clock the line was ordered to

Staunton on the 26th, and destroyed a

He then proceeded to Waynesboro',

The following is the latest disptach pub

iv Missouri. It is dated at St. I.ouis on
the Ist instant:
Scouts from lronton report that a large
force is advancing toward that place from
the South, but it is not known whether
they are rebel or Union troops. They
are thought, however, to be General
Mow ct's army.
Great alarm existed at Franklin last
night, and heavy tiring was heard in the
direction of Morelle, twelve miles below
Alter the tiring had ceased a tire was
seen, indicating that the bridge at that
point over the Merrimac river had been
burned. There was but a small guard
All the rolling stock of the Pacitic
railroad at Franklin was brought down
to Allentown last night.
The stock on the west branch ol the
toad has been a good deal damaged, and
it is believed there is a considerable force
of rebel cavalry in the vicinity.
No trouble has yet occurred on the
Pacilic railroad, except the removal of
the lolling stock from Franklin, but fears
are entertained that the rebels will at
tempt to destroy the Osage and t-htsco
General Brown, commanding the dis
trial of Central Missouri, has withdrawn
his forces from Warrenaburg, Scdalia,
Boonville and other points, and concen
trated them at Jefferson City, where both

Blair of the comma*. 1 of the city and

lt is understood that a portion of Gen

at the intersection of the Pacific and
Southwe st Branch roads, forty miles west
of here, to-night.
Tho "very Litest" from Missouri is a

LATEST FROM IHE NORTH.
United States papers of tho 4th were
received last evening. From the Balti
more Gazette, of that date, we extract
the following summary of news :
UK ANT'S OPERATIONS.
General Gj-ant reports to the War Dc
paitmcnt, under date of Sunday evening
last, that there had been no change of
position on the part of the Federal troops
either on the north or on the south side
of the James river since Saturday. On
that day a small body ol cavalry, sup
ported by two brigades of infantry, was
sent up the peninsula, and is said to bave
advanced to within a lew hundred y*ards
of the inside line of woiks, east of Rich
uionJ. From other sources we learn
that this reconnoissance developed the
fact that the enemy was in strong force.
In the vicinity of Petersburg, accord
ing to the correspondent of the Wash
ington Chronicle, the Confederates were
repulsed with heavy loss on Saturday
morning, in an attack which wa.-. made by
them on cWrcs's division, and about the
same thneTieneial Gregg is .aid to have
driven back Hampton's cavalry, on the
Vaughaa road, with considerable loss,
taking sonic pri-uriers.
At the fist _CBvi.es from the front the
Federal ai my was s*ro_igly
The loss in Friday V fight hasTiot yet, we
are told, been definitely asc tamed.
There was a story current at Fort
-Monroe that Petersburg had
ated, but it was subsequently ascertained
that such was not the fact. It is repoi ted,
also, that heavy lii ing was heard through
out the whole ol Sunday morniii;- on ihe
north side cf the James river, but as'
General Grant, in his dispatch at a later
hour, asserts that there had been but lit
tie lighting during the day al any part ol
the line, the statement from Fortress Moo
roe must be regarded as an exaggeration.
The headquarters of Sheridan, on Sat
• urdey eveping last, were at Harrison
burg. He does not appear to have ad
vanced beyond that point with his infan-
but his cavalry went as far south as
Staunton and Waynesboro'. They sue
ceeded iv destroying the bridges at South
river and Christiana creek and in doing
considerable damage to the railroads..—
Sheridan's line of communication is beset
with guerrillas, and such trains as ar.
sent to him have to be heavily guarded.
AFFAIR** IN MI..SOLKI
From Missouri we have advices up to
Saturday last. A party of Cot-federates
entered the town of Franklin, on the
Pacific railroad, on that day, and burned
all the railroad property there. On the
Southwest branch of the same road
there was also said to be a considerable
force of Confederate cavalry,
