To General Dix : Diepatohea from City Point at 4:30 this eTening, report no fighting to-day. More- merits are in progress, however, which are not now proper for publication. The Richmond papers report an attaok opon .Lynchburg; bj Ueneral Hunter on Saturday, and that he was repulsed. It is believed, however, that there was nothing more than a reoonnoii&nce and that having ascertained the plaoe to be strongly defended, General Banter with drew and is operating on the enemy's com. tmtoatlon at other points. A dispatch from General Sherman, dated yesterday evening at 8 30, states that it has rained almsst incessantly, in spite of whioh, oar lines have been pressed for- ward steadily and that an Important posi tion has been gained by General Howard. 1a. eneaaj made a desperate attempt to re-take this position last night, making seven distinct assaults on Whitaker's brigade of Stank y's division, and losing not less than 700 or 800 men. Two hun dred killed were left on Whitaker's front The assault was followed by a heavy fire of artillery, nnder which the position was fortified and is now safe. Our cavalry is across Noonday Creek en our left and one brigade of the 23d Corpi Is aeross Noses Creek on the right, bat the rebel left is behind a swamp, and the rains pre rsnt sny advance. The lighting has been quite severe at all points, the enemy re isting stubbornly and attempting the of fensive whenever he can.

No military intelligence from any other quarter has been reoeived to-day by this Department. Signed, E. M. STANTON. FROM WASHINGTON. [Special Dispatch to the Cleveland Leader.] First Dispatch. WASHINGTON, June 22—9 P. M. The latest reports from the Army of the Potomac are under date of headquarters, June 21st, Every thing was quiet along the lines, except that the rebels have de veloped new batteries of heavy rifled guns across the App tomax, with whioh they shelled General Wright's headquarters for thirty minutes j the General and staff es caped injury, but two non-eommisaioned officers and one private were killed inst- antlv br the expUeion of a shell. Ws opened three batteries on those guns and soon saoeeeded in silencisg them. It is believed here, from information obtained from prisoners and deserters, that nine brigades of E well's corps have gone to op pose Hunter. Petersburg papers of the 18th complain bitterly. Our batteries are shelling the town without any warning having been given the inhabitants, among whom there is great terror. An article copied from the Charleston Meroury of last Tuesday says : For the first time during several weeks there was an Intermission of bombard ment last Monday. This was doubtless owing to bad weather. Daring Sunday night seven shells were thrown into the city. The enemy's troops seemed actively engaged in repairing damages whioh rains have caused their works. Our Seeeseionville correspondent writes us from that post that visitors from the Yankee batteries, la the shape of shells, are still inconveniently plentiful. On Sunday, they threw 11 shells from Light House Ialet, and 10 from Long Island. Yesterday they threw 21 from the former and 23 from the latter. Our batteries re sponded as usual. For some time past it has been known that a batch of Yankee prisoners compri sing some of the highest In rank now onr hands, were soon to be brought hither to share the pleasures of the bombardment. They accordingly arrived 9a Honda. The following are their names : Bank Brigadier Generals Seymour, Wessels, Bcammon, Shalerand Heckman.

Second Dispatch WASHINGTON, June 22—11 P. M. ' The Richmond Enquirer of the 18.h, gives the following version of the late fighting before Petersburg: The interruption of communication with Petersburg by the advanee of the enemy upon the railroad on Thursday from Bsr maJa Hundred, shut us off from any posi tive intelligence oonoerning events before Petersburg on that day. . The Enquirer has the following from the Petersburg Ei press, which gives the following rtbelaooount of the engagement on Thursday. Cannonading commenced on the City Point Road at an rly hour in the morning, and was followed by heavy skirmish ing which continued during the forenoon. In the afternoon a furious assault was made on General Hoke's front, whose divi. sion occupied a position faoing batteries from 0 to 12 inoluaive, and constituting a most important position. Enemy came up in three lines of battle, and made three charges, but were eaeh time repulsed by a heavy fire, which biased from onr line, and sent the vandals back in oonfusion. Onr men occupied entrenchments, the ene my had hastily threwn up daring Wednes day night in the vicinity of Calvary. Farm House There was heavy firing during the greater portion of the day but late in the afternoon it beet me quite se vere, the enemy attempting to carry works by aasault. This portion of the line was occupied' in the ' morning by our militia forces where we regret to hear several severe casualties occurred. As soon as regular troops 00 aid be brought np and placed ia position the militia were relieved and General Bashrod Johnson's division re-ocanpled the breastworks along with Georgia light artillery and other bat teries. Here asta ed above the work was quite hot. In too afternoon the enemy, with two divisions of fresh troops, made a charge but were handsomely repulsed. In the last chargs the enemy came within hnndred yards of our fortifioations, but the fire was so terrifio that thny halted, broke ranks and retreated in great eon fueion, seeking shelter in a ravine about a hnndred yards from our lines. Here, a large portion of a Yanke; brigade being exposed to an enfilading eross-fire from enr gtin, and not daring to show their beads for fear of being toppled over by onr muiketeers, surrendered to the 61th Georgia Regiment Thess prisoners num ber over 400 men ; they say they were fearfully eut np. The Enquirer gives quite a list of easualities, among them is Captain Pegram, son of the rebel General. The Adjutant-General has just given an important decision, whioh will answer many enquiries daily mads throughout the country. The principle involved is this: No information must be given by any offioer in the United States eervioe to any person under,, any oircumstanoes which can be made a basis of claim against the Government for pay, pension, or other allowances, except It be given as regulations prescribed by the Adjutant General or some proper officer of the Treasury or Revenue Bareau. information of the sick and wounded officers and men may be freely given to any one to allay the anxiety of friends. Tbe bare faot of death may be communiea ted to relatives, but not dates or any ciroumstanoes which would be required to be asked in prosecuting claims. Parlies interested must satisfactorily account to the offioer of the Treasury that .they have legal olaimants, and then this officer will obtain and give to these officers all the offioial evidence necessary to perfeot it The rules are to guard the government as well as lawful olaimants against fraud. Brigadisr General Julius White has been ordered lo duty on the army of the Poto mac, and will probably be assigned to division In Burnside's corps. Benate Judioiary Committee had a long discussion to day, on the question admit ting Arkansas Senators. Committee will also dispose of the question allowing States whioh have been in rebellion elect oral votes for President Committee hold and will so report that until the inhabit ants ia rebellious States have rendered obedience to us they ean have no voice in the Electoral College or representatives la Conrress. Toe Conference Committee on the an bill will be ready to report tc -morrow, It is understood that they will aocede to the demands of Secretary Chase, and that they will increase, to a considerable extent, the tax on several leading articles. The See retary maintains that heavy taxation is the only means of sustaining our pnblio credit The ways and means committee will be ready to report on the tariff bUl, to-morrow, They have now oononrrod in a large num ber of amendments with a view of sending disagreement to the Conferenoe committee. The Benate committee on foreign affairs resumed to-day the consideration of the Mexican question, which subject will be postponed till next ssien. FROM COLUMBUS. [Special Dispatch to the Cleveland Leader.] COLUMBUS, June 22. An order has been issued direoting the transfer of the Ohio men in the Louisville hospitals to Camp Dennison. Then are, however, hospital acoommoJations at the latter place for only 1,200 men while there are 2,700 Ohio siok and wounded at Louis ville, so that some 1,500 will be compelled to remain there, at least, for the present The 16Sth andlTlst regiments are ordered to rendeivous at Camp Dennison. The order includes those who gave their pa roles to Morgan, which are not recognised by our military authorities. The regi ments, however, will be k pt on duty in the State.

SENATE. On motion of Mr. Nesmith the House bill to authorise the President of the Ui.it ed Slates to negotiate with certain Indian tribes in Oregon for a relinquishment of certain rights secured to them by treaty was taken up and passed. Mr. MoDougall brought up the Joint Resolution heietofore offered in relation to the French occupation of Mexico, was received and after a short debate ordered to lie upon the table and be printed. Mr. Powell's bill to prevent military In t rlerenoe in elections was then taken np, when Mr. Powell offered amendments de creasing the penalties for a violation of its provisions and inserting the words in the ninth line, unless suoh military shall be necessary 10 repel armed enemies Mr. Pomeroy moved to add to this the words or to keep peace at the polls, which amendments were adopted. The bill then passed by 19 against 13. Mr. Bumner presented the petition of Horace Bprigg, a colored oiusen of Wash ington, which represents that prior to April, 1862, he was a; slave of John Par- er, ana that he had purchased in the name of his brother-in-law, a free siason, his daughter, then a slave of said Parker, and had paid about $t0O. The emancipa tion commissioner before whom he ap peared, claiming full compensation, as the irtual owner of Martha Ann Sprigg .re fused to allow the claim on the ground that a slave eoald not acquire , slave prop erty according to the then existing laws. He asks Congress for compensation. Mr. Ramsey submitted the following which was laid over: Resolved, That the Committee cn For gn Relations are h reby instructed to consider and report the expediency cf ex tending the provisions of the treaty be tween the United States ind Great Britain, June 6th, 1854, commonly known as the Rsciprooity treaty to Central British America or the District north of Minne sota, hitherto desctibed as the Selkirk set tlement and the Territory A the Hudson Bay Company. Air. Johnson presented a petition or the Polish oitiiens or residents of the United 8tales praying that the Polish ci.iiens serving in the United States may not be returned to the Government of Russia as prisoners, but that proper steps be taken to pro wot them from outrage.

Mr. Sumner moved to take np the House Bill for the repeal tof the fugitive slave law. Keleeted, 'il to 11. FROM NEW YORK. NEW YORK, June 22. The Commercial s money article says the gold market is in a most excited con dition. The suppression of pnblio eompe tition.effeotei bv the sold bill, has thrown trade directly into the hands or spolia tors, and they now make their own prices - -.. . . and have made ad UMtum use or their pre rogative. It was well known that a large short interest was compelled to settle its contracts for the delivery of gold during to-day and to morrow. The principal hoi ders therefore h.ld back for a large ad' vanee. The pressure of "shorts" only increased the quotations of holders, and the process continued, until at noon the brokers were paying 226, and celling at zSo. The effect of this state of affairs has been to en- tirelt suspend operations in foreign ex ohange : drawers do not know what to ask, and refuse to give any quotations. One large firm in Nassau street is asking 16 dollars to the pound sterling : at sucn rates there ean te no offer. At 12:30 p. gold took a downward turn ; a large lot was thrown upon the market at 2. SO. which put down the prion suddenly about 16 per cent: at 2:30 brokers were buying at 210. and selling at 220 : at 8:30 P. M. at about 208. : At a meeting of the Bankers and Brokers to-day a committee was appointed to visit Washington to endeavour to secure tne repeal or modification of the gold bill. Up to 2 p-11 , to day no deoision had been arrived at on the euestion of an attempt to postpone theDemjcratlo uonvention. A special to the Poet, dated Washington 22d.savt: - - -- It is reported to-day ia Congressional circles that Mr. Chase will negotiate a foreign load in New York aftr the pas sage of the loan bill now before Congress. Ths bill contains a provision authorising Mr. Chase to negotiate such a loan. FROM NORTH CAROLINA. NEW YORK, June 22. A Newburn, North Carolina letter dated June 18 Ji says: The United States Steam Transport John Earn, Captain Swallman has arrived here from Beaufort which place she left on the morning of the 15 h inst The capiain reported having 03 his way taken off 14 of the crew of the gunboat Lavander, which ran on Cape Lookout Shoals on the night ot the 11th inst Cap tain Swallman's attention was first at tracted by a signal from the wreck, and upon nearing it he found the men clinging to a small portion of the hull which was just out of water.' There was a heavy sea running which made it almost impossible to re'ieve the sufferers. But a small boat was moored near by, the Captain and a ehosen crew on ap proaching the wreck, the poor iellowj mad with hunger and thirst rushed into the boat which immediately capsiied, throw ing the wholo party into the breaker'. It was then sometime before all got back to the corvette again. Capt Swallman then sprang on the boat which he succeeded in righting, and after a time got her bailed out and went back to the Farren. He then continued to run out a line from the Farren to the wreck by which means, after much difficulty, all were brought on board. Some ef the men were bruised in a fear ful manner, and were so muoh exhausted as to be perfectly insensible, having been on the wreck four days aud niguts with out food. Captain Gleason, of the Laven der, reports having run on the shoal at 11 o'clock on the night of f-e 11th, in a storm. The Lavender was a new boat this be ing her first trip. She was built at Phil adelphia, from which port she sailed a few days before for the blockadeing squadron off Charleston where she was to have been used as a trader. When she left Philadel phia, her crew consisted of 28, all told, nine of whom were either drowned or died of exposure. The Farren remained some time to try and save something from her t ut in two hours it went to pieces. Upon arrival of the steamer the survivors were sent to the Naval Hospital where they will be cared for. Captain Gleason of the Lavander begs to return his sincere thanks to Captain S., for his gallant and timely aid in rescuing himself and crew from this petilous situa tion and also to all ths officers of the stecmer for their kind attention to them while on board. FURTHER BY THE AFRICA. LIVERPOOL, June 11. Persia's news eaused a fall of 2 per cent in the Confederate Loan, whioh elosed at 6263. I no Times to-day has an editorial on the Federal enlistment debate in the House of Lords. It says ths matter has been ex aggerated, and believes the Federals have obtained but an insignificant portion of the fighting men from the British Islands, and if they obtained twioe the number, England could not reasonably make it, under the ciroumstanoes, a cause of war. We can only stop suoh .-rooeedings as are illegal, that is to say enlistments only and not emigration.

No di patch from Storetary Stanton last nirht The New York World's speoicl Washing tondlspatoh of the 21st MTa: Intelligence from the front to yestsrday noon is at hand. It is under stood that Sheridan has already gone on another raid. Bunday night there was considerable skirmishing and heavy artil lery firing, but nothing of importance re salted. The demand for the surrender of Peters burg has been made and refused, and our artillery have already sneued tne place, which is nearly deserted py tne inaaoit ants. The Tribune's Washington special dis- natsh savr. Later information from the army U that all waa ouiet en Bunday night with the exception of firing at intervals along the ne. An attack was made on onr center. whioh was qniokly repulsed. The rebels occupy a high eminence near tne town, and it would be useless to raeri fire life to attempt to take the town, as the rebels, nnless dislodged, wonld be able to throw shells in ths midst of any force oc cupying the town. The position we hold is a very embarrassing one to the rebels as they admit The Times' special, from near Pelersburs; the 19th says: The country may look for a demonstra tion shortly which will greatly ohanre the aspect of affairs at this point as prelimin ary to other events of perhaps greater im portance. The bombardment of Peters burg is set down for the opening step in the ensuing week's operations. Birnev has his artillery ia excellent positions at a ante of from 1,200 to 1,400 yards from the heart of the city, and at daylight to- moriow the shelling will commence, pro vided the plaoe is not previously surren dered by evacuation or negotiation, the rormer of which will only be likely to oc cur. The arrival of Hunter with his force at the White House, together with Sheridan, en-route to this plaoe to operate is our vicinity, has been officially announoed this evening. Urant has determined to Increase rather than diminish his force at this point this evening itirney, commanding Han- oock's corps, extended his lines so far as to occupy the ground on which our wounded of yesterday's charge had since lain. lhe Herald's correspondent at City Point 19th, says : News from rebel sources reports that E well's corps had been sent against Hun ter, with the intention of capture, lhe Petersburg Danville Road is the only communication South left and the width of track differs fro"u all others whioh will prevent the withdrawal of tbe rolling stock. This road ean be easily destroyed from Petersburg, so the Rebel Govern ment will f.el that Richmond is held by a very elight tenure. The loss of Peters burg is a virtual surrender of Richmond. Let the timid be assured that the glori ous campaign of Yiaksbnrg will fine a par allel here. ' Lee's announoed viotory at Howlett was an attack on Foster's division, Butler's force, the 17tb. Field's and Picketf s di visions Longstreet's corps, charged Fos ter s line, driving his left and center back, though repulsed on every ether position. Subsequently part of the original line was lost but regainod. To-day the attack waa renewed with infaktry and artillery. A portion of our oenter was driven back, an advanoe ordered and the enemy were driven. So we now hold oar line tri umphantly.

To avoid flanking they abandoned the entire line and Hancock oooapied it. The Herald s correspondent with Hunter under date of ths 11th says : lhe line of railroad between Charlotte. ville and Lynchburg is destroyed effectu ally for two miles, thus catting in two the rebel forces at these two plaoes. lhe Herald s James River correspondent under date of the 20th a;. : J The rebels were shelled out of their po sition at Malvern Hill by the gunboat Eutew, aad located themselves out of range. Tnree rebel rams came down nearly to Dutoh Gap and were fired on by our mon itors. The rams steamed slowly back. Grant and Butler were on the Agawam, having an interview with Admiral Lee, and witnessed the firing. The Kichmond Sentinel says or Hunter e operations, that after destroying a part of the Charlottesville railroad, they struck the railroad to Peters ourg near Concord Depot and cut the telegraph, lhe pur pose of isolating Lynohburg, the Sentinel says, is a failure, owing to Sheridan not oining Hunter; also, claims that Hamp ton whipped oheridan.

But there remains another party tho Demoirats; they being also divided at present into War Democrats and Peace) Democrats, t ut who would all bo Peace Democrats in the event supposed that is, in the event of a total failure of the Fed eral oampaign of 1864. Now the very la test intelligence brought no from that conn try by a epeoiel channel, informs na of these two further facts ; that ths popular mind beoomee at.oaoe violently sgitated, on the announcement of this Ba-imora nomination ; and that in Maryland, ee pecially, disturbance was appreheadred. In fact too Democrats of the North, who have waited four years, not too patiently, trusting to regain the power and profit which they but lately held to be a Demo cratic inheritance, must naturally be pro voked beyond endurance at this audacious attempt of Lincoln and Seward to rids roughshod over them four years more. We leara that the Democrats are now uni versally turning their thoughts to Frank lin Pierce and the Con section t Seymour as their nominee fer President and Vioe President. To give them the least ohanoo of electing those two advocates of peace, Grant must be defeated, the invasion must collapse and die out and ths n i nama of war ssust become a word of horror, at tend with loathing and execration.
