GRANT'S ADVANCE.
the situation.
Parties from the front say that at noon yes
terday Grant was ?? thirty-five miles from
Richmond. and all was well."
HU rapid change of base has considerably
bothered shippers of army goods here, who,
loading for Belle Plain, find the occupation of
that lately busy locality completely gone, and
the guard troops lately there gone to Port
Royal "or the Lord knows where," to establish
he new base of supplies.
There are still a number of sick and wonn led
at Fredericksburg, an J as soon as they are re
moved that place will also lose its importance
quite as suddenly as Belle Plain has.
The three gunboats which moved up the
Rappahannock a few days ago, are still at the
Fredericksburg wharf, and a number of trans
ports were there yesterday loading with sick
and wounded. Some of the engines and roll
ng stock of the railroad has already been re
moved from Fredericksburg.
The guerrillas attacked a train on Monday
moving from Fredericksburg to Belle Plain,
bnt the rear guard, after a sharp skirmish,
drove them off and succeeded in captntlng
seventeen of them. Skirmishes with the guer
rillas occur daily at different points about
Fredericksburg ever since our army has com
menced Its forward movement.
Un Monday night a guerrilla camp near
Hartwood, northwest of Fredericksburg, was
avacked by a detaohment of our cavalry, and
40 horses, captured hereto tore from our wagon
and ambulance trains, were recaptured and
brought off.
Some of the trophies of Grant's new advance
upon Richmond have arrived here. The
steamer Wawasset, which arrived here last
night, brought up about 100 contrabands, con
puling of mu. women and children. These
contrabands are from the vicinity of Bowling
Green andGuiney's Station, and brought with
them a large quantity of bod clothing and other
housekeeping articles.

Wa*hi?gtor, May 21?10.30 P. M.
To Major Oeittral Dix, Aero York:
A despatch from General Grant, dated at 11
o'clock last night, states that the army moved
from its position to the North Anna, following
cloeely Lee's army. The 5th and 6th corps
marched by way of Harris* Store to Jericho
Ford, and the 5th corps succeeded in effecting
a crossing and getting a position without much
opposition. Shortly after, however, they were
violently attacked and handsomely repulsed the
attack. Ths assault was without much loss to
us. We captured some prisoners. Everything
looks exceedingly favorable to us.
Another despatch, giving in detail the move
ments of our corps, and speaking of the rebel
assault on Warren's position, says he was at
tacked with great vehemensy. I have never
heard more rapid or massive firing, either of
artillery or musketry The attack resulted In
a destructive repulse to theenemy. At the po

who have come in say Lee is falling back to

Other official despatches from headquarters
say 'hat Warren, Bumside, and Hancock are
pushing after the retreating army. Warren
captured a good number of prisoners lasteven
ing, bnt has not time to count them or ascer
liin 'bie Ipse.
?Hr.ncock is storming the rifle-pit? this side
fcf the river Last night he took between one
and two hundred prisoners, and drove many
rebels into the river, where they were drowned.
Warren also captured sotm1 offifial papers,
amongst them an order calling out all boys
.evenieen years of ag.- to garrison Richmond,
imbalance men and musicians are also ordered
I the ranks. Sheridan was this morning at
Dunkirk, and will be at Milford to-night.
No despatches have been received to-day
tam General Sherman, and none are expected
tor several days
Despatches from General Butler have been
received to day, relating chiefly to the respec
tive forces. Admiral Lee. in a telegram, dated
the 22d, to the Secretary of the Navy, states that
last night (Saturday* the enemy attacked the
army, and were handsomely repulsed.
A despatch from Major General Canby, dated
tte ISth iastan', at the mouth of Red River,
states thatGneral Banks' troops had arrived
at Semmesport, yesterday, and will reach Mor
gacza tc-day. The army is in better condition
than was expected, and will soon be ready to
resume oflensi\e operations.

The advance of the army, under Hancoc*,
arrived at Milford yesterday, and met a force
of the ecemv there, said to be 13,000 strong and
! drove them through the town, and followed in

An attack was made on headquarters' train,
near Guiney's Station, yesterday afternoon.
The 114th Pennsylvania Zouaves, with the6?th

rebels?the 9th Virginia-across the bridge.
One of the 6&th was killed, and two or three
wounded. Several prisoners were captured.
10 o'clock p. m.?Gen. Hancock is seven
miles south of Bowling Green, and occupies
the bridge across the Mattapony. Our cavalry
had a good deal of lighting, but drove the en
emy all the time. Our position is now deemed
important, and Richmond is in greater danger
than ever.
further particulars or THE
advance of grant.
Quinsy's Station, May 21.?The 2d corps,
by a rapid flank march, reached Bowling
Green to-day. About dark, Friday evening,
the column started from their entrenchments,
and moved along the old telegraph road, past
this station to Bowling Green.
Warren followed with the 5th corps. The
two commands were separated" in the march.
A gap of six or eight miles was discovered to
exist between our lines at this point. Generals
Grant and Meade, and their respective staffs
and body guards, found a small force of the
enemy here. The 111th Pennsylvania (Oollis'
Zouaves) doing provost duty at army head
quarters, were neither surprised nor intimi
dated. After several volleys the Rebels re
tired.
Our extreme right is now resting near the
fpot which two days ago held our centre?the
Anderson House. Burnside is here, and
Wright, with the 6th corps, joins him on the
left. Cannonading can be heard from that lo
cality, and the report is that the 0th, and a por
tion of the t>th corpe, are engaged. Hancock
is on the extreme left, and Warren in the centre.
These swinging movements of our corps
cause the rebels to glide after us in th^ same
direction. People here say their troops nav?
all left for Hanover Junction. Many of them
started three days ago. Panic prevadea all
hearts. The hegira among the owners of plan
tations is universal.
The cavalry corps train, in charge of Captain
Tallman, moved from Fredricksburg eailyin
the morning. Guerillas abounded. The train
was guarded by one hundred and fifty men.
lit-re was a glorious opportunity for the hunery
rebels; but they knew not of it. Many of the
rebels captured along the road belong to the
!>th Virginia cavalry. These men are natives
of this section of the country, and always dis
mounted in exigencies like the present, to act as
guerillas and harrass our advance.
We still Jront towards Richmond. The men
are hopeful and eager. R H. McGregor.
The Tnrnfng of Lee's Right Flank.
[Correspondence New York Times.]
GriNKY's Station, Saturday, May 21, 7 p.
m?The Army of the Potomac is again on the
' march towards Richmond. During the night,
Hancock's Corps, which had held the left of
our lines in front of Spottsylvania Court
HcUse, took up its march, moving on the road
parallel with the Ny river. Early this morn
ing.it reached Guiney's Station, on the Fred
ericksburg and Richmond railroad,* twelve
, roi'ea due south of Fredericksburg. Thence
it pushed onward, following the railroad, and
to-night finds the bead of Hancock's colnmnat
Bowling Green, eighteen miles south of Fred
ericksburg. The other corps have been to day
? following the same general line, and the 5th is
now passing the point at which this despatch
is dated. Voti will observe from these indica
tions that the Commanding General has
effected a turning movement on the right of
Lee, who is now hastily falling back to take
np a fresh defensive position. 1( is expected
that the next stand wiil be on the South Anna
river, although he may endeavor to hit us
while moving by the flank, just as he did when
outflanked in his lines on the Rapidan.
Heavy firing, in fact, is this moment heard
across th? Ny, where one of our columns is
moving. A mile oo?tb by west of Qninsy'a
Station is the point of continence of the Po and
Ny rivers, and at this point the stream is
crossed by Guiney's bridge, which is in our
possession. The river south of the junction of
the Po and Ny is called by the inhabitants of
the country the ?* Mattapony," although the
Mat and Ta, its other tvo affluents, do not
enter it till we reach a point a dozen miles
south of thi*.
Our army is now all gone from the front it
has held before Spottsylvania Court-House for
the pest two weeks, and the lines of Spottsyl
vania pass into history. They are associated
with fighting as desperate as was ever made
by embattled foes, and by the greatest valor on
the part of both armies. Its woods sepulchre
thousands of the bodies of brave men, perished
in the great cause for w hlch this army marches,
and fights, and suffers.
You will notice by the map that our pressnt
front, while it puts us in a very advantageous
position in regard to the enemy, at the same
time perfectly covers our communications,
which are Dy way of Fredericksburg and
y quia Creek. The railroad will soon be open
from A quia Creek to Fredericksburg, and
will doubtless be put in order south of that
Doint as we advance. There are also several I
a> pointe of water commonitl.in by the |
Rappahaunock, as at Pert Royal, Jcc., which. ,
will probably be need. i

the impression that our progress is to be now
orlv a triumphal match. We shall be met by
the most obdurate resistance which skill ana
courage on the part ot theenemy can command.
But General Grant has given you the key-note
of the sentiment of this army, we shall go
through with this busines?, -if it take, all
summer to do it." * Swihton.

10ATS,
THE TORPEDOES AND OBSTRUCTIONS IN
THE RAPPAHANNOCK.
Atone o'clock to-day the hospital steamer
Connecticut arrived here from Tappihannock,
?with six hundred wounded on board, brought
down from Fredericksburg by the steamers
Keyport and Lizzie Haker, under convoy of
several gunboats. This precaution is found
necessary lrom the fact tbat rebel cavalry and
guerrillas line the shore* of the Rappahannock.
Whi.e the Connecticut was taking on the
t^onnded from the Keyport and Baker, a body
of rebel cavaliy made their appearance at
Tappahannock. but the gnnboate brought their
guns to bear upon the enemy, and they ske
daddled,
The gunboats 8re yet engaged in removing
torpedoes and other obstructions found in the
Rappahannock.- The Keyportrunning against
one of these obstructions on her downward
trip, stove in her wheel-house, and sprung
a le?k. but not sufficiently to disable her.
The Connecticut had on board one hun
dred and fifteen wounded officers, among
whom were Col. C J. Powers, 108th Ne w
York; Col. C. V. Deland, 1st Michigan; Col. C
Ewing, 4th New Jersey; Col. S. S. Carroll, 8th
Ohio; Col^R. Lewie, 5th Vermont; Col. S. W.

Lient. Col. S. A. Moore, 14th Connecticut; Lt
Col. F. Sawyer, 8th Ohio; and Lieut. Col. W*
DeCacy, 164th New York.
Yesterday evening at 4 o'clock, there were
about 0,0(0 wounded remaining at Fredericks
burg, but aa there was a large number of trans
ports in readiness, it was thought they would
all be removed by this evening, when the town
would probably be evacuated, we having no
present use for it in consequence of Grant
having established his new base of supplies
lower down the river in connection with his
advance upon Richmond.
"PRIVATK ADVM IiSr
The "private advices" of a city cotemporary
to the effect "that Jeff. Davis and his Cabinet
left Richmond some days ago, tearing that in
the approaching anaconda embrace of Orant
they might be gobbled up,"' has not been con
firmed by any public advices thus far, and is
conceded to be news "exclusively'^ belonging
to that paper.
The averment by the same piper that Grant
is pursuing Lee "beyond the South Anna,'<
though a thing likely to happen, is not be
lieved to be a fact accomplished, and it is
rot doubted but that some hard fighting wil1
be required as a preliminary.
We advise the public to keep cool and wait
patiently. Grant will reach Richmond, but
not by a skip, hop and jump, and we know
that he anticipates some of the hardest flghtir.g
of the war before the goal is attained.
AN AFFECTING SCENE.
Mr. and Mr,. ^Tdl,b- S,!"!
of Michigan, who bad two 008 Horace iind
Coradin?in the 7th Michigan regiment, ^ume
to this city a day or two ago in search of Hor.
ace, who they learned had been wounded in
the battle at the Wilderness, and had been
brought to this city. Failing to find him in
hospital, they yesterday evening vv'i'ed the
6th street wharf. A tew moments afterwards
the steamer Jefferson steamed up to the o'ock,
and standing near the bow of the boat was th?
locked-for son, badly wounded, his right arm
having been shot off'above the elbow. As soon
as the plank was thrown from the boat to the
Wbarf, Mrs. Rnwrtilh sprang un board the
steamer, and throwing ber arms around her
son's neck burs t into a flood of tears, with her
head bent upon hissboulaer. Ifor a few seconds
there was an affecting silence, which the fond .
mother broke by saying,-"Horace, where is your
brother Coradin I" Horace, pointing to a rough
wooden box by his side replied, "There, mo.
ther, there is Coradin!" The afflicted mother
threw herself upon her deceased son's coffin,
sobbing aloud in an agony of grief, while the
father and wounded son stood by with bowed
heads. The scene was truly a Heart-rending
one, and lt better be imagined than de
uniWed. Many of the bystanders were com
pelled to turn aside, while silent tears could be
seen stealing down the cheeks of all. Several
kind-hearted ladies present did all in their
power to comfort the afflicted mother, but it
was long belore she could be Induced to leave
the side of her deceased son.
CHANGE OF POSITION.
The infantry froops lately upon the outer
line of the defences of Washington, night be
fore last commenced to contract their lines
under orders irom headquarters in this city.
They #ought away all Government property
and lelt the block houses about Fairfax Court
House, and beyond, standing; there being no
apprehension of any large rebel force taking
possession of them. No guerrillas have been "J
seen in that beigbborhood for some days.
The 147th P. V., 4th Delaware, and 2d D. C
Infantry, who were doing guard duty alon.<
the roads lrom Fairfax to Hull Run were the
infantry withdrawn?the 157th P. V. and 4th
Delaware, going (it is supposed,) to join Grant's
army, and the 2d D. C. remaining at Spring
field, seven miles beyond Alexandriarfor guard
duty.
A brigade of cavalry, under command of
Col. Lowell, of a Massachusetts regimen', are
still on duty in that vicinity and will carefully
patrol the country and watch operations there.
WOUNDED OFFICERS.
Up to the present time about one thousand
commissioned officers, (of all grades,) wound
ed in the late battles, have been reported to the
Medical Directer'sOffice.

rial of the Bank of New Orleans pray in* to b*-<
relieved from the tax on deposits under the
national bank bill, so far as deposits made with
them ot Confederate funds are concerned. Thny
represent tbat during the poxsession of the city
of New Orleans by the Confederates they were
forced to taxe such sums on deposit, with the
right to repay in like currency; but after the
occupation by Gen Butler, he compelled tbem
to pay only in gold ai d silver or currency.
They ask the withholding of the tax bill till
they have the opportunity of testin? th? i. galiiy
?f the contract. Referred to the Committee on
Finance.

tute therefor.

A message was received from the Hou*e,
announcing its non-concurrence in som? of
the Senate amendments to the National Bauk
bill, and on Mr Feseenden's motion, the S n ite
adhered and asked for a Committee of Confer
ence.
Mr. L(^e, of Kansas, submitted a resolution
that the Committee on Indian Affttrs b>* re
quested to consider the question ot conti-'-atiug
the reserves of all Indian tribes who nr?cr
h?>t> beta in Wius mainst Uovtfuatut,
and providing home? for the loyal members of
such triNs, and to report by bill or otherwise.
Mr Spragne offeredthe following :
Wheieas large corps have been and are now
h- tog ortanized in the military service or the
Unltfd States without the advice and consent
of the Senate in the appoin'tnent and commis
sicning the officers : Be it therefore
ketclvtd, Tnst the Committee on Military
Aff'irs be and they hereby are directed to in.
quire into the expediency'ot reporting a bill to
the Sena'te requiring that all appointments in
the service ator- said, heretofore ic*de,or which
r ay ber? after he made, shall have the ad rice
and cdBWDt of the innate, as provid-d by law
in other cases, and that the commissions of all
officers not receiving the advice and consent of
the Senate to their nomination willeqpire with
the pres-nt session of Congress.
In reply to an inquiry by Mr. Wilson in re
gard to the resolution, Mr. Sprague said the
government was organizing a large n?gro and
invalid force and appointing officers to it with
out the advice and consent of the Senate. This
he thought should not be. The resolution was
passed.
Mr. Morgan, from the Committee on Military
All air?, reported back the bill to prohibit the

With amendment, consisting of the following

Mr. Wade reported a bill to amend an act to
enable the people of Colorado to adopt a State
government; and it was passed to a second
reading.
Mr. Foster. from the Committee on Pensions,
reported a bill giving to the widow of Solomon

He cub? Mr Morrill, of Vermont, from the
Committee of Conference on the disagreeing
iir.enbmtnts to the armv bill, made a report
tbereon in relation to the pay of colored troop*.
The report makes a distinction in favor of
those who were promised pay equal to the
whites, leaving other similar questions to be
determined according to th?* law.
Mr. Stevens, of Pa , opposed the report. He
said lhat on a previous occasion the House
passed, by an overwhelming vote, a proviso
that all free colored men shall receive the ?'nil
pay of white m*ii. The committee of confer -
en. e have discarded this instruction, and have
adopted the Senate's amendment with an
amendment. Members of this House should
not dodge tne question. He would prefer losing
the bill to abandoning the principle to fully
pay those men for services rendered in the
XTrion army.
Mr Spalding: advocated the paving of all
colored soldiers the same as white men. with
out distinction as to the time of entering the
tervice
Mr. Garfield wa? a?ain-?t paying menmon?y
which they had norltbt to expect. It would
he e gratuity to five ro black men what would
not he given 'o white men.
Other gentleme- engaged in the debate: among
th?-m Mr. Thayer, of Pa., who claimed simple
justice to #11 < o'ored troops alike.
The disenssien was fur her continued. The
points involved being whether the colored
troops who entered the service prior to the 1st
of January last should receive the same pay
as white toldiers; or whether the provision
should not be extended to all colored troops
alike.
The House rejected the report,and asked an
other Committee of Coherence.
Th& Keciprocity bill was considered.
