By the arrival of tha mail steamer this morning from City Point we have news from the Army of the Potomac of not so encournglug a nature a We bad been led t. expect. It appears tb.it nfter Hie Rfbtil fort w.ii blown up, General Ledlie's Division, of the Oth Corps, pushed through the rulus to the second Hue of the enemy's lutrcuchmenU, when other portions of our army pressed for ward and engaged the enemy on the right &nd left of Ledlie. The Rebels, however, still remained on the right and left ol tlie dt'inolltdietl fort, In their front line of lntronclimetits, of wliicli the fort foimed a part. Thus the Rebels were able to pour a steady fire into our troops, who were resting In Iront of tbe.ir second line, while the IJcbcl artillery belched forth a heavy Are fro'n right, left, and front. The enemy charged several times upon our lines, and were handsomely repulsed. About nine o'clock In the morning. General Fexrero, Colored," Division made a charge to carry the crest of a hill beyoad the second line ol Intrenchtnenta. They advanced well under a heavy Are, but broke and retreated in disorder. All efforts to re foim this division were In vain. About this time Humphrey's Brigade of Wilcox's Division assaulted the front line of lntreuch menta to the left of the demolished fort. For a time they were successful, and held a portion of the line. It soon became evident that to carry the Rebel works was impossible, aud about 2 o'clock P. M. our forces retired aud assumed their old positions. Our loss was about two thousand killed, wounded, and missing. Wo captured two hundred prisouers. General Bartlett, Colonel Marshall, of the 2d Brigade, and Colonel Wild, of the 6t3th Massachusetts, were captured. IMPORTANT FROM CAIRO. BATTLE AND UNION VIC . TORY AT SELINA, MISS. Caiko, July 31.

For six weeks the army hns remained Iu apparent deadlock la front of tbe lines of fetersburg. The passage of the I tmcs bad exhausted the category of possible flanking movements with Richmond as an objective. A movement to the left, though presenting the high ttrateuic advantage of planting the army on tbe enemy s lines of railroad communication, seemed to exios too much our own coimuutii 1 ai ions to be adventured. A movement to tbe right, so long as tbe enemy's position at Iter uuda HuLdred wus unauilable, would oolv carry the army once more to tbe uortlu rn side of the James. For a season It seemed to bo Uenerai Grant's intention to force tbe enemy by e ivalry raid to an abandonment of his strung podtloii.

IBrrlHl lo Tho Kteulnir roli'r.rh. WAsnihoToM, August 1. The Nf.iraaya: We have Ihe following i'lterestlm; particulars of the lighting on Saturday in front of Petersburg, ob tained from eye-witnesses of the stirring events of the day. At two o'clock on Saturday morning the signal boat at City Point coming down the Appomattox swlf l) , aud vcutiug its well-known and peculiar brill wbi-tle, indicated to the initiated thut some thing wus np. Geiif r.il Grant rose bun lolly ;'aml luountinghls hoise galloped off towards Petursborg, to Meade's headquarters, some eight mi cs distant from City Point. Other par les, anxious to witne-i tin) an ticipated event, imtncdia.ely followed as rapidly as possible. About tlires o'clock the stillness of night wu brcken by an artillery Are, of no great, fervor, however, and wb'1 on the surface bore no significance, as befug uutbiug more than the routine compliments of the morning to tho enemy about 4 o'clock. However, the cannonade on our jaif assumed a viorthat must have warned tbe rcier-.burgira and the enemy there congre gated that something serious was about to trun spiie, and nboiit twen'y minutes lat..r something t-ciiotis did transpire, In the explosion of Grant's mite, :oca'ed under the main fort In front, or rutin r a bt'lc to the left of the front of Burn stib 's position. Gur Informants state that the published ae com ts to the effect that the earth was blown up five hundred feet by the explosion, and that the report "awakened Uictmiond," shaking tha c irth us by an earthquake for miles away, is all nonsense. The mine was laid very deep, and tho explo sion, though i ffective and destructive, was distin guish! d by none of those pyrotechnic effects given it by tbe band of fancy. The earth was thrown up in a brown cloud about one hundred feet, aud at the same time a low rumbling sound wai hiard, bcurlng no proportion iu weight to the roar of tbe cannon. The sound of Ibe explosion was not even heard at City Point, and the fact of the explosion of the mine was not known there until the arrival of tbe train from the front. A pause of twenty minutes followed upon the sptingingof the mine before the charge was made, by our troops, who then sprung forward to tbe first hue of intrenchmeuts, winc h was curried, and they pushed on to the second line, exposed to a murderous eutilading tiro Hum the enemy's batteries. Hi te it was that the negro troops, who hid ' earned a good name in previous service, and who had asked the privilege of leading tho advance, row tied bclore the terrible lire, aud fell back iu Hic.t iln-order. Our Iom was pretty heavy in the fighting betactn the iiitren' huients, amounting to o.ie thousand Or lll'tccn bundered men. It was ru potted ut City Point wheu the mail-boat left yes Itrdsy, llnd we bKik three hundred prisoners In tbe Kebcl intreuchment-, aud that sotno seven . in died of tbu enemy were killed by tho ox plo. nn. The Kebels appear to have been informed as to the diiecil'iti iu which Grant's milling operations wtru rnntilng, as shown by tbe fact, that Ihiy b d removed twelve of tao sixteea guns belonging to the fort exploded. TUe story that Petersburg was burned ou Satur day is uot true, sc hear. Casual shells may have struck buildings and fired them, but the town us not deliberately shelled, as reported. Tuuugh Grunt has not succeeded in accptn-pli.-hiug bis purpose in this initial attempt ou tho works of the enemy, and is apparently no nearer Petersburg than he was before tho explosion of his mine, be really has gained possession of in formation as to the enemy's position that, com bined with the destruction of the principal forti fies' ion defending Petersburg, places him muc nearer the accomplishment of his work. I There was no firing after 2 P. M. oa Saturday and there was only desultory firing after S A. M. Our troops were back where they sturted from before 11 A. M. Since writing tho above, we bava information that the explosion was admirable, realising all Grant's expectations, but we failed to reap the advantages expected to follow upon It. Tbe report that tbe negro troops behaved espe cially bad Is not corroborated by our biter information, which suites that they behavod no worse, at least, than others. The hospital steamer Cusct!cut has arrived with four hundred aud thirty-two sick aud wounded from the hospitals at City Point, In cluding thirty-seven ollicers, most of whom were wounded in tbe fighting on Saturday. General Bumslde is reported slightly wouuded Iu tbe arm In Use attempt to rally the negro troops. Colonel Curtis, of the tth Peansylvauia Kegimtnt, if reported killed. Tbe Ui and 20th Michigun ltrgJments are laid to have lost con siderably in prisoners. IU' Star'i accouut of the Petersburg failure t'bare that auiv Genera ha blundered. FOURTH EDITION.

Infirm tion from the Army of the r jtomac, dated J-ily 3 ), 3 P. M , says: After the explosion this miruiiir eor thlng betokened a briilivit v cory, but soil after ma ters assumed a different aspoet, pr of the attacking furcj having iven way, thn rxposliig the balance to an enfilading tiro from the artillery and Infantry. The proK'ianmie was as follow s : The mine to be exploded at ii A. M., the bat teries to open ut once along the entlro line; the Uth Corps to charge, supported hy tlie Ht.v, (Ayrrs') Division of the 5th, and the 3 I Division of the 2d. The great-T part of thi ivrrangem nt was carried out ns ordered, although tlie com mere meut was later th in the hour dcsignatsid. on nceonnt of tho fu e going out twice. The explosion took plic t at precisely i-10, ai l the roar of artillery that Immediately followed was almost deafening. At hall'-pist live the charge w as made, and the fort w itu part of the line each side wus curried in brilliant styie. The 2d D. vision, which was In tho ce ure, ad vanced and carried tho secind line, a short dis tance bey und the lir-'t and here rested, holdiua their ground with the utmost dub rutin ttion. It was at this time that tho Colored Division, Uriga illet -General Wbito in command, were pushed forward, and ordered to charge and carry the crest of the hill, which would have deciJcd the conflict. The troops advanced in gMd order as far as the front Hue. where they received a galling tin!, which checked them, and ultbough ipiite a unui ber Vcpt on, the (ircater portion seemed to become utterly demoralized, part tubing refuse In the fort, and the huluiico moving to tha rear as fast is possib.c. They were rallied, and pushed forward ae;an, hut w ithout success. The greater part of their c Ulcers being killed uuj wounded during th.s tine, they seemed to he without any one to man age tbcni, when th' y finally fell back to tho rear, out of the range of the voile) s of cnister and musketry thut were ploughing through their ranks. Their looses are very heavy, particularly tn officers, as will be sen by the following figures: The 23d U. B. (Colored) Regiment had fifteen ollicers killed and wounded, and lost about four bundled men, Including the missing. The 2Mth United Slates (colored) Regiment, hud 11 ollicers, and about 13'J men killed, woundtd, and missing. Tbe 27th United H ates (colored) Regiment, had 6 ollicers, and about 120 men killed, wounded, and missing. The 20th United States (colored) Regiment, bad 8 onUcrs.und about 175 men killed, wounded, und missing. The 31st United States (colored) Regiment, hud 7 officers, aud about 200 men killed, wounded and missing. The 43d U. 8. (colored) Regiment lost six offi cers and a large number of men. Tbe 30th U. S. (colored) Regiment lost several officers, and 160 men, killed, wouuded, and missing. Tbe loss in tbe '.'d Division of the Oth Corps General Led llu commanding, was very severe being estimated at front 1000 to 1200, .while many make the figures larger. Among tbe uiissiug I regret to announce the name of Gencrul Bartlett, who reanhed tho fort with his command, aud bis cork leg being acci dentally broken, he was un .bio to got off tha fic's He how ever bold postesslon of tho groand for several hours, and only surrendered when all lope of escape was gone. home two hundred men, both black and white, weie with bim, it Is believed, at the time, a few of whom managed to get hack to our lines amidst a storm of bullets. Nearly all of General Uartlctt's stall' wore cap tured at the same time. Colonel Harshuil, commanding tho 2 1 Brigade of this division, was also tukeu prisoner, with several of bis stall'. Colonel Wild, of the 'A h fi isss -husctis (Colored), is also reported a prisoner. Colonel Gould, 3'Jth Masachuietts, lost a leg. M.jor llu no.;, 179th New York, also lost a log. Lieutenant-Colonel Ba.ncy, 2d Peuusylvaula, wouuded. v Major Prescott, 57th Massachusetts, killed. Lieutcnant-Culoucl Ross, Slit United States, leg amputated. This division having been a g sxl deal in ad vance of tho rest of the Hue, bold their position for several hours; but were tiually compelled to fall back, suffering heavily white doing so. Tbe luss iu tho 1st and 3d Divisions was also ti vcre, the lat'tr having somo four hundred In hospital. Ihe 18th Corps occupied a part of tbe line, but their loss was not very great.

Davis, lOtih Pennsylvania Volunteers, is now at his homo in Pucks county, and that his wound, received while at the head of his brigade in tbe recent attuck on Charleston, is now rapidly Improving, it is feared that the Colonel will never lie able to use bis ri'bt bund aguin. This Is tbe second time Colonel Duvls has been wounded. He has com manded a brigade for over eighteen months, and we ttust will soon receive tbe star which be so justly merits. His loss, though only temporary, is deeply felt in the brigade. An officer writes us from tlie lbVh Pennsylvania Volunteers: "I never knew anyone missed so uioch. Wben it be came known anions tbe men and officers that he had lai n seriously wounded by a shell from ths Rebel butteries, every one seemed depressed and disheartened." This Is a noble record, coming, as it does, from one whom we know to lie a man of truth and honor, and himself respected by all who know him. DaiAiin he or a Batteit.
