Advices from the Army of the Potomac have bem received p to ton o'clock yesterday morning. Tim Vnsuecersful attempt on the lines of rvters Varg has been succeeded by a lull, whit h will probably lost for some time, and exclude the hop of any great military opcratloni for soma days. In Northern Virginia we shall doubrlose have a series of tuhior operations, with a view o expandon of the Invading foro from the valley of the Shenandoah. Meanwhile she failure of Saturday loot will have en couraged Lee to make still bolder uVmonstrn tione In this vicinity Maryland and Penn sylvania. Energetic measured, however, have been taken to meet these designs; and although details of the amount of force In the vicinity are not allowable, It Is not Improper to say ttiat we have on the lines covering Wash faigton, Maryland, and Pennsylvania, a force .oal In Itself to an army, finch appoint to. be the military aspect of aff.ilrs both lu the. East and West. On Monday morning an Informal application wm made to the enemy by the Medical Direc tor of the Oth Corps for a truce to bury the dead between our lines and those of Um enemy, and to supply the want of such of our wounded as still remained there. The enemy demanded a formal application from General Meade to Gcueral Loe. S ich an application was conveyed by Major Lyd"o, oriiornside's staff. The result of this appli cation has not yet transpired. Our Ionsee In Saturday's fight have not been definitely as certained yet. by AssociATnn rnirwj.

The 18th Corps lost nearly 300 men. while ;t Turner's Division, of the 10th Corps, hid noarly 00 killed and w mnried. A flag oftiuenas sent out to the enemy t. day for the purpose of getting the reme'nder otr tke tie-Id, but it was refused, the reason not belog given. General Butler also sent a flag of tm ic fro n his Hits to-day, whloh was also refused, tha efrWr giving no renson except his orders, hlcu were peremptory, uot to receive a dg under a ly elreuan-tances. - .Th.y also refuse to exchange papers, and the sen are so clusely wa'ched by their orti :urs th a they lave do ch .nee of exchanging, ihougb they aie iilways willing o do so.
