the Army of the Potomac have bem received

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

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

of onr forces having arrived within shelter of our
wi Iks, (jetieral Ilartrauft now attempted to fol

tecied that he was in great danircrof being bagited,
hv reason of tbe enemy having craftily impeded

that General liartlett lost a leg at Fort Hudsou,
and ased a false one : that being broken in Ihe
last aielee, rendered it iiuoossiliie. for this callaut
,young general to move henoe his capture.
Ihus ended this first miniug operation and
attack against Ihe enemy's works. If it elfectod
tothlng else, it developed the strength of the
Itebelworka at the point where tbe attack was
mode. Our losses are not as largo as those of the
