Tlu Peace Ney;otiations. Tlio part week lias given us a cu rious chapter in the history of the re bellion, in a 1 1 ansae! ion which is still invented with much that is mysterious. Hot although there are doubtless many particulars which have not yet become public, the corre)ondence published iuthVieiiily indicates the nature and motive of the transaction. It scctns that George N. Saunders, tho well known Northern renegade and trai tor, with other less distinguished peace makers of the rtbel persuasion, cs tabliidicd themselves at Niagara Falls, and opened communication w ith "Col orado" Jewttt, he.' intervention st henics and peace propositions of the lo I (wo years, have made him the laughing stock of the world. ' At the rcijucfl of the rebel Commissioners, Mr. Jewctt approached Horace Oreo ley, and induced the latter to place himself in communication w ith the ; gentlemen at Niagara. A $ Mr. Gree ley slates in a recent number of the Trilunr, that he is well aware of the provisions of the law in relation to clf constituted negotiators, it may be ijtbrrtd that before he took any steps in ike matter, lie sought and obtained frm the President aushoriry to treat as a reprefcntriive of the Federal au thorities, wiili any person authored by t!tc power controling the rebel ar mics to pi goiiate for peace In the Opening correspondence, Saunders and his fiiends pretended to act as plenipotentiaries of the Kichmoud go enimeii but on the t.-i.der by Mr. Greeley of the President' sale -coa- ' duet for any person clotln d w i:h such authority to procenl lo WhiIiIii,oii (br tl.e funheraiiCeol their objt t,t hey Wrro obliged lis Cwfr I hat they trrre acting In their private rjacity- t i .1 i . . . i and had no auth'iiiiy w hatevir to bind the Confederate g- vernuieiit.

A few days since, .Senator Wade, of 0li0 ini,i a xiril to Gram' army before I'rlersburg. The Senator went feeling very blue on nccount of the supposed failure of the Lieutenant General's campaign nga;iit the rebel Capitol j he leturned feeling so very joyous over something he had learned there, that he found il extremely dif ficult to keep Kom telling his secrets to every correspondent that beset him. The feelings of Senator Wade when he went to the Army of the Potomac were very similar to the feeling en tertained by a great pottion of the people during the past few week of inactivity ; nod the frame ot mind in which he returned was very much like the public feeling of to-day, as the wires ila.sh over the country the news that active operations have once more auspiciously commenced. The only fear w hicli the people have had was that Grant might not have force enuugii ior tlic work beiore him j and they still feel assured that ai long as he is strong enough to fi::ht, he is nil right. I!y another one of his bi illiant flank movements, Gen. Grant threw his right wing up the James lliver to within a few miles of Richmond, thus enabling himself to operate at will on either bank of the James, and com pill ing the enemy to detach a large force from the army at Petersburg for the immediate dt fence of ItichinonJ. The great battle nt Peteiiburg commenced with the blowing up of one the large forts of the enemy and the immediate assault of the ninth corps. Three lines of 'works were carried, and at last accounts everything was going on successfully. In the siege thus be , which may prove the greatest gun siege of modern iims, the ccuntry has every confidence in the talents of its gtcatttomiuaiulcB. Gen.

As your readers already know, our whole army had effected the crossing of Peach Tree creek, a small but dif ficult stream cirelinj Atlanta on the north and partially on tho east, the crossing of which was sandy completed t.j. t.o .n.-v.iii.fl ol ihe .jOiIi.

On the left ol the 11th corps was the 20th corps j on the left of the la'ter, Newton's ilii.-iHi ef the -I'h corps, A gap had occurred in our lines for three inihs, which was covered on the south bank of the creek by a portion of the pickets from Ncvion's division. On the left of the gap was concentra ted the rest of our anny, several di visions, oiiginally on (lie right, tnving been moved there early on (he morn ing of the 20th,wilh a view of strength ening that w ing, in the front of which the enemy made numerous feints, as if about to precipitate his whole strength against il.

Newton's Chief f Artillery, with sph ud.d quick ne a,; brought op ten more guns, making ; twelve. They opened with canister, the gunners working with frantic en ergy : four guns went into action on Newton's light. Up to the moment these guns opened, the rebel columns had steadily advanced, engaging New ton's three i educed brigades ut terri ble odds. It was uondeif.il how fast the enemy lost I. is grip .t hen sixteen I uns added their blast to the storm of bullets from the infantry. His col umns slackened p:.ce and began to waver and lose their careful arrange ment. In vain the rebel cavalry rode up and down their lines, waving' swords and exhorting men not to falter; In twenty minutes I he assault had totally failed and the enemy gave way, re tiring in confusion to the woods from which they emerged. For the rest of the afternoon they kept up a desulto ry lire, which was returned by our artillery, but they did not venture to renew it again. The rebel General Stevens, commanding a brigade in Walker's division, was killed" here. Nearly two bundled rebel dead were buried in Newton's front next morn ing. His brigade did not yield an inch. 'Ward's division on Newton's right, was struck at the same momeiiT, as Newton's. He had just halted his men al the foot of the hill for ' brief rei. Afto Lis t-kii Uii.!iers had made their way to the crest of a wood, they came back to him slating that the en emy was charging over the open field in his front in immense, force. Ivith out a moment's hesitation, Waul or deied the divi.-ion to meet the enemy with a counter charge. His. men moved up the hill in splendid order, and when they gained Ui crest, so close upon thei i-re the rebels, thai everal of the hostile regiments were intermingled. At such jioints, -the rebels seemed addled by Gen. Ward's bold eorjis, and wei e ciiptui ed without difficulty. On another portion of the line, fighting at close quarter contin ued for half an hour, hut each succes sive lino of the rebels was prcs.-cd buck by the valor of Ward's men. At the end of thai time, the rebels fell hack into a (ktiso forest in the rear, couiphlely whipped. So far as Gen. Wind's division is concerned, its trophies are seven bat tle flags and ihreo I uinlred prisoners, including many of the enemy wound ed and left on the -field. Among the jirisoners are representatives of six teen regiments, and he no doubt fought' double that number. Ward sent all his available artillery to yolect New ion's flank, and his splendid victory was achieved with musketry alone. The charge swept along to the right, striking Gi ary's division. Af ter Geary hud advanced half a mile from the trenches he occujiied in the morning, and had. just marched his troops lo the toji oi the ridge, when the rebel columns were thrown on him w ith terrible viohnce. Most of Gea ry's line ran through the wcod, nnd his right fla ik wus exposed by an in terval of two or thiee hundred yards, which Gen. William.,' division was endeavoring tti close when the enemy came on. Cob Raines' brigade, on Geary's ' right, was speedily enveloj.ed on the flank and rear, and fell back, alter n sullen fight, to the trenches ii oceujii ed in the morning, vt here it wag re formed. A portion of Col. Irwin's brigade were also enfiladeJ and driv en back.
