it will be finally disposed of to-day.
"A table composed of Florentine's

admired. . A splendid baby palace at.
tracts universal attention; it is one of
the most complete things of the kind

secms more like the work of fairy lingers

is furnished throughout in tbo most
luxurious mannier ; rich velvet carpets
cover the floors, beautiful pictures deco
rate the walls, and tiny tables and'chairs
are scattered about. the drawing.roo,
where the queen of the doll-babies is

A URAP111o SICTd1.
From an internsting aceount of the
last fighting around Petersblurg, written
for the Ficld and Fireside by a Confede
rate officer who was engaged in it, We
extract the following. After describing
the breach made oni our works, after va
riotis bloody repulses, on Gordoh's lines,
lie coitinues :
Just in the rear; some two or three
hundred yards, on many parts of our'
line, heavy foits had been eftetild'to
guard against just such results As trd
ensued. In the rear of the line of works
captured by the Federals were batte
ries Mahtone and Gregg, but neithIer
had gunis mounated nor men assigned
them, Malsonet was unfinishhd, and
was simply an embraur-ede batt.ery.cof
three guns. Gregg was a, large -fort,
with a deep ditch in front, and its. sally.
ports protected in the -rear, and was em
brasured for six guns. These tiro forts.
wero all that now prevented.the.op9wy
from cpmpl*ly ca.ting the. Confedeite
lines.in two to the9 Apporpigox,ssyi

they took it with a rdAl, although th
gunners stood to their #tkis to the +6ry
last, and fired their Wdt shot whild the
Federal troops were on the rampaitg.
I was standing wher" I could view
the whole encounter. -&The Confederate
line to the left of the fin-wis - not at
tseked. The ereek iied ,a-, and the
Btruggle was going on on one hill while
we were on the opposite, about a half a
mile apart, anxious and bteathless wit.
As soon as Mshono fell, the Federalo,
in three lines, moved 'on Fort Gregg
with cheers; In the imnidliate vicinity
all olse was iNn. . HoiV Ciavently
%nd In what antfui lines they ad
vance I As they near the fort their
lines curves into a circle. They are
within fifty yarde,- and not the flash of
lingl" rifle yet defies thei. My GodI
have the boys surrendered without a
struggle ? We look to see if the sign
of a white flag can be see.i; 'At this
111tait it seems to gleam in the sunlight,
fhd, sends a pning. to : our earts. But
no I it is the white snlokt from their
gulls wlitch from cannonieis and infan.
try simultaneously fire en the confident
aesaulters, who stagger-reel under the
death-dealing volley-and in a moment
t1e Federal linen are broken and they
ietreat in masses under cover. A loud
and wild cheer succeeds the breathless
stillness that prevailed amongst us, and
is answered exultingly by the heroib
little garrison in Fort Gregg.
But reinforcements have come to
the help of the 'assaulte-rs. I can see
their long serpentine lin'ed Vs they Wend
their way- through the cleared fleld in
the .distance, and over , thj captured
works, I turned nn4 looked to our
rear, but no reinforcements can be seen
coming to the succor of the garrison.
Every man is heeded at his post,.and no
reserves are at hand. The repulsed as.
sailants, animated by the sight of rein.
forcemenit4, reform, and as their coin
rades come up in battle ary, march
foith again in unbrolen tanks. As
they -gain tho hill-top, two Inmdted
yards from the fort, the artillery within
the fort belches forth from the embra.
sures, and the effect of its canister can
het plainly seen in the liea0s of de'ad and
dying that strew the ground. Dit the
check is only inomenitary. - As thei next
line advandes they move fo*ard in ser.
ried ranks, and soon the fort is canopied
in smoke. We can see the 4artillery as
It fires in rapid succession, and the small
arni spop and crack in a coaseless i-Attle.
The confliet eltewhere ceases, and both
sides are silent and anxious witnesses of
the struggle at the - fort. Thus the fight
continues for an half an hour. The
Federals have reached the ditch.. They
climb up the sides of the works, and as
the foremost reach the top, we can see
them reel and fall headlot,g on their
comrades below. Once, twico and
thrice have they reached the top only to
be repulsed, and yet they persevere, aiid
the artillery In the embrasures continue
to fire in rapid succession.
Bit, at last, all iR hushed I The ar
tillery once more, and for the last,time,
fire a parting'ohot, and wo can see the
Federals as with impunity they mount
the works and begim a rapid Are ion the
defenders within.- Their ammunition Is
exhaulted. and .unwilling to surrender,
they are using thir bayonets and chib
bing their guns in. an unequal struggle.
At lat, onb lotd huzra proclaims the
fort -lost, and with it the Confederate
army cut into two parts.
