KFifcCT OF TUE DISASTER ON T1IK PACIFIC MAIL STOCK. The stock of tlio J'aciflo Mail Ftoamship tympany was adversely uffsctcd by the Intelligence of tho loss of their splendid mini*'. In consequence thereof stock fell to lOSJi on the receipt or the ftr.-t report of the dwustor, but fri.tu ttiis it subsequently ralliod, reaching to 110, and ultimately at tlut i|gur?, showing a decline of aboi.i 2,'i'.>ci cont from yeet?rd ?y's prices. The Ion to lie company villi umoinl to less than fire per cent on the c i).ital stock, but which, it, Is said, will not Interfere with the regular quarterly dividends.

Tho number givou Is 230, and of these ISO arc reported as lost, which leaves tho amount saved but fifty.

II* folt that some tiling ahould bo d' no to show tlio world that we have g'>t alio army on the peninsula. Believing that Malvern Hill,about which point eo much ha# been Mid, could bo retaken, notwith standing the natural strength or th? poult ion, bo formed a plan to aucoiuplUh this object, and submitted It to hnad quartern. Cenerul McClellan entered heartily Into tbe plan, and gave (ioneral Hooker tho entire command of an ex pedlttcn for tta accomplishment. A reoonnoidbarite in forci waa made last Saturday evening; but, the guides loading tbe cclumn a wrong direction, tbe party returned to camp and rested until yesterday afternoon, when tbey were ordered to prepare Tor tbe march. Tint KA?Clt. Tbe column was not all upon the road until after tho moon had riven, atid threw a flood of light Into every opening in tbo forests through which tbo Utile array passed The muds were smooth and even, and tho move' mcnt of tbo artillery train made but very little tiulao. Precautious were taken against alarming the enemy'a pickets, one of whom?tho only one on tbe road on which tbe column me red?was capturod. Ouarda wero placed around tho house* on the way to prevent tbo in mates from conveying information of tho approach of our troepe. Whon the resting place for the night waa renobed, officers gave tliolr orders in a whisper, as it waa known that a camp of tbe onotny wag near. Tho alienee with whleh tho aflitlr was conducted would have loeu com plete ha ' not been for a raw RHioitincn annul., who gave orders for brigade movements In a toIco that could be board a great distance in the a'illness of tbe night. Tbe result of this llttlo inflation of military pride shows bow inexperience and lack of Judgment in one offi cer in a long lino may sometlaaos defeat or damage the success of an important movement. Tho result in this case was that Ttm inuy wins a prong w> of our approach at twelve o'clock, and reinforcement* sent for. General Ho ker and bis command would have been glad to have the enemy reinforced, in order that ho might accept the gage of battle upon his ehosrn field; but UN warning that Jaail been giyen MuhA Uk [fffp upon . . ?,; i.i our grasp before an adequate jmii. ishuitui buu been administered to t'em. l mi hiv or ao for the night wag in Uia rear of tho Gleudale battle ground ot' .lunc SO, on the Quaker Churcli road.

At daylight the column moved, a sufficient force having been pouted to protect tbo rear. Pul ing through the Nelson Farm, the b- dv marched by the ot,n turn* cnoc.vn of Glendalc. The Quaker church, otherwise callcd t?e WJIHh church, lies upon the road below the fiold where the left wing, under Helutzelman ami Hooker, re putted the rol.c'.s on the last day of Juno. The littio cburch beam cvldvccea enough of the bloody work that was done roar it. Tho pows were all ripped out ana converted into amputating tublon :md other convenances for the car? of wounded men, and tli, floor of the building I* entirely covered with bio Many of the dead are buried around It, with hardly a mvmorial to designate them. I uoticod on a head btard of one grave tbo name of L. E. Io Diane, Tbtol lout 'iaaa regiment. In the woods beyond the church, on the road to Mah-ern Hill, arc abundant evidences of the artillery practice of the en#my upon the roar of our army during tho march to James river. Trees of cousidi-rable a\M arc literally mowed dowu^y the shot and fdiull, and others ac irred by the M.uie bullets that hailed through th?m. The column arrived * AT MALYKRN BIU. about half-fast flvo o'clock. The sky was clouded and lowering, and a heavy moisture hung iu the air, which was not stirred by the slightest breeze. It In not propor to state what foroc.a couiprm d the expedition. SuMce it to say that. It was a strong and well proportioned oorns, with the propel amount of cavalry and artillery. Cavalry aud artillery lod the column mto the Odd, through the wooded gorge in front of Maivern Hill, ac companied by General Hooker and hi* staff Taking a position, with his su(l, upon a conspicuous knoll, GKlfmM. BOOHKR OPUfFO Til* nflflT I If PKRBOtf, as he did at Williamsburg, posting lit* artillery and or dering the cavalry to the attack. The eaeuiy had a battery in position at the right ef tho brick house on the odge of the MulT towards .lames river. This was the Fauquier bst'ory, from Fauquier county, Vir ginia, commands* by Captain Stribllng. The Eighth and Seventeenth Georgia regiments were on the Ueld ami two regimen's of cavalry?one the Cobb cavalry, of Cccrg.a. Major rickett was in command of the poet. Tbo Eighth Illinois cavalry obarged upon the battery. and were received by a storm of grape and canister thai drove tl.em back. The batlcry then flred shell and spherical case directly upon the road leading te the Ml' from the Quaker church, nnd Captain Pennon i battery replied. Almost Isst inlly a cloud of amoke settled over (he Held, obscuring every object. The enemy kept up a remarkably well directed lire upon the road on which our Infantry were advancing. Shells and spherical cvo burst In the road und upon either side of It In rapid succession. The enemy's prac tice showed that they had previously obtained tho rnngo of this spot with great accuracy. Tho Infantry, led by the First brigade. Hooker's division, cemmanded by General Grovor,marched up tlie road under this Are with out flinching, like y nterans, in admirable order, followed by vhe oth'r brigades In tlie same man "or. When a Shell was heard approaching a regiment tho men dr>t>| ?d, and were distantly on their feet again, with unbr.-keu ranka, moving forward. Fortunately only two or three sheila took affect upon the oolumn, klllliig two men aud wounding Hi teen, lhe talantry marched uyoa ityf fivlll end twJc titfir J** I Hon, and, the smoke having become go deiuo that it was impos sible to sco the encm> , General Hooker ordered the fire o! the artillery to b? placKined. It v,'ua 801 u discovered, however, that THE KNFHY WKKK ".-KJtDi. UUNO" t< ?ards the roud ua thrtr loft, which leads to Richmond along the bank of the Jamas. General I'leasanton, v;.U bis cavalry and \ bat'erv of flying artillery ,< harged upon thftm. Thinking tie bad nothing but cavalry, th?y formed a lino of battle: but a couple of rounds from the battery undeceived them, and UMy beat a rapid retreat. The ??avairy and artillery pursued there two and a half miles upon the road, cutting than up baCy and taking about fifty pro- uurfl. When the movement toward our right was tlrst dlg covo.od it was thought that an attempt sunlit be madd to turn our think, and a battery wan jmst ti at our ri 'it I and rtar, whii u uirow a ('.w round- of sh?ll in that di "0 tion. And thus ended Ike second battle of Malv?ri Hill. The enymy expei'ed reinforcements front Ge .eral Robert Toombr, who commands a bripado ia Longstreet'a division, nnd who la stall ue?t at Ne wintriest. W 'rd had be< n conveyed to htmatmidi ^M. of our approich, and .lie prisoner.-, said that he promiHJd to briny his brigade dowu early in tho morning. Our column cat him off: however, and a? goon as the force at the hilifound he could not roach them thov retreated. If the enemy had not been apprised of onr approach W'i should have bftgc d the regiment i]]Viu the hl'l; or It the smoke had not concoaied thorn so completely until it I wan too iato to cut them off thero would have been n '? similar re?uIt. It would havo boen rashness to attempt to cut off their retreat towards the river road until their force was known. W^are now in qulot possession of MalVtrn Hill, where General Hooker will give the enemy a battle as soon an they clioope to come on. Four men were killed on our side, and four dei.d rebels were found and burled by our men. A number ot amputated limbs w?ro found at the brick house; but tho whole eneut of their loss was not ascartaUyd. About ONR IIL'XDRKD PRSSONEIW were taken.
