It is rumored that we had re taken the four guns captured early in the after noon, and several more belonging to the enemy. This, however, needs confirmation. There was heavy firing in front of the ytb corps about midnight. At times the musketry broire out into regular volleys. All night our cannons fired at regular intervals. Detailed Account. [Despatch to the Chronicle.] Pbtbrrburo, June 22.?The 2d corps with drew from its central position last night, and marched westward toward the Gaston and Petersburg railroad. Portions oi Gen. Smith's corps returned to the Appomattox, and went into their old position on the right of our grand army. This relieved the 6th corps, which fol lowed the 2d, moving by the left flank. Smith and Bnrnside held the right, resting near Petersburg, on the Appomattox. Burnside, with his division of negroes in reserve, occu pied the centre, the 6th and 2d corps holding the other wing in the neighborhood of the Gaston railroad. Two o'clock, the enemy showed himself in strong force. The Second corps formed in front of the Jerusalem Plank road, and were vigorously opposed by Hill's corps. Cur ar tillery, ot which we have gTeat abnndance, was soon in position, and playing lively airs tor the division of the rebels. A battery of the 12th New York artillery held tl^e advance po6t, and seemed to be doing terrible execution, lor the rebels relinquished all vows to act only on the defensive, and charged It. They suc ceeded in getting in on our flank before dis covered. The supports, all brave men and trne, were so surprised at the sudden and un accountable appearance of the rebels they fled, after offering a very feeble resistance. We lost the battery and a lew men. Most of the cannoneers escaped upon their horses. Every thing had been so quiet all day upon the right we were scarcely prepared for the evening on set on the left. The battle line was reformed, and the contest was renewed. Lee has been husbanding his forces. Every man is vainable to him?necessary for his suc cess?an accessary to glory. And the efforts made by their clouds of sharpshooters leads me to believe they imagine we feel the loss of a single man. Anything that induces him to lead forth his men and fight us, will be hailed with delight by our generals. It is his policy of hiding in thicket, bending low in ditches, or covering his head with breastworks that annoy our veterans. General Wilson's division of cavalry has marched towards the Weldon railroad, de stroyed Rives' station, and, when last heard lroiw, were going south, tearing np the track as they went. Later. June 23,6 p. m.?There is a report thi3morn ing that the rebels made three several charges upon our lines, after they had been reformed. Each time they were driven back, with great slaughter. The four guns captured from the l'Jth New York, early in the afternoon, were retaken during the evening, with two or more guns belonging to rebel batteries. These little engagements stirred up the whole line. Throughout the night skirmishing was heavy and continuous. Near midnight it broke ont into a tremendous uproar. This was immediately in front of Petersburg, where the 9th corpB held the Prince George county road. The cannonading and musketry was fierce, the latter at times breaking out in rapid volleys. Both parties tired from breastworks, and it is presumed did but little dnma^e. We have lost few men considering the loss and recapture of those guns near the Jerusalem plark road. No More Fighting Yet?Important Move* in en ts in Progress. FbRTRssa Mohrob, June 23, 5 p. ra.?The mail steamer Charles Vanderbilt, from Ber muda Hundred, has arrived. She reports that no fighting had occurred up to 10 o'clock this morning, The 19th army corps, under General Smith, crossed the Appomattox river and joined Gen. Grant's main body yesterday. An important movement is expected. We have nothing later from the White House, and no lurtber particulars in reference to Gen Sheridan's movements. Abolishment of Slavery in Maryland. Baltimore, June 24.?The Constitutional Convention of Maryland, in session at Anna polls, passed to-day, by a vote of 53 yeas to 27 nays, the following article of the bill of rights: " Hereafter in this State there shall be neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except in punishment of crimes, whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, and all persons held to service or labor as Blaves are hereby de clared free." Arrival of Rebel Prisoners. Fortress Monrob, June 23.?The steamer Guide has arrived from City Point with up wards of 700 rebel prisoners recently captured in front of Petersburg.

I tell the story as nearly as I can a* he re lated it to me: ' I used to play agood deal with Rechberg," said he, "and took pleasure in wor rying him, for he was a great purist in his play, and was outraged with anything that could not be sustained by any authority. In fact, each game was followed by & discussion ol full half an hour, to the intense mortifica tion of the other players, though very amu sing to me, and offering large opportunity to irritate and plague the Austrian. "One evening, after a number of thes* dis cussions, in which Rechberg had displayed \a even unusual warmth and irritability, 1 fonnd myself opposed to him in a came, the interest of'which had drawn around us a large assem blage 9f spectators?what the French designate as la galrrit. Toward the conclusion of the game it was my turn to lead, ftnd I played a cnrd which so astounded the Austriau minis ter that be laid down his cards upon the table and stared fixedly at me. "In all my experience of whist," said he, deliterately, " I never saw the equal of mat." ??Of what I" asked I. ?? Of the card you have just played," rejoined he. "It Is not merely that such play violates every principle of the game, but it actually stultifies all your own combinations." "I think differently, Count," said I. "1 maintain that it is a good play, and I abide by it." " Let us decide it by a wager, ' said be. "In what way 1" ??'Tnus: We shall leave the question to the palerie. You Shall allege what you deem to be the reasons for your play, and they shall de cide ? they accept them as valid.' '? 'I agree. What will you bet V "'Ten Napoleons?twenty, filty, five hun dred. if you like !' cried he. warmly, " >1 shall say ten. You don't like losing, and I don't want to punish you too heavily.' " 'There is the jury, sir,' said he haughtily, 'make your case.' " ? The wagfr is this,' said I, ' that, to win, I shall satisfy these gentlemen that for the card I played I had sufficient and good reason.' "' Yes.' "?My reason was this, then?I looked into' your hand!' '? I pocketed his ten Napoleons, but they were the last I won of him, Indeed, it took a month, before he got over the shock."

Pierpont, of Va? has issued au add res* to the loyal citizens of Norfolk, in which he says: "I have received reliable intelligence that Gen. Shepley. acting under the orders of Gen. Butler, intends to order a poll to be opened on the 24th of this month, to take a vote of the people of Norfolk whether they desire civil government to be continued in that city, and if a majority of votes are cast against the contin uance of civil government, Gen. Shepley in tends, by military loree, to prevent the trial in the Circuit Court of some thirty-odd indict ments against liquor venders in that city, who have violated the license laws of the State. I know of no anthorlty in the State or Federal laws authorizing the people to abrogate the civil laws of the State in any city or county, and such act can only be considered revolu tionary. Therefore, no loyal citizen will be expected to vote on the proposed question." ?7*MissMandaaa Tlleston, daughter of the late Cornell us Tileston, of Williamsburg, Mass., was married a few weeks since, at Oxford, Ohio, to Rev.
