ry Expedition.
[Dispatch to tbe Chronicle]
Nxar Pbtbhbbubo, J ane 24,3 p. m.?Every
disposition ol the troops has be*n made to ward
oil an attack. Large clouds of dust, indicating
moving columns, hare been seen. It was
thought the enemy had designs upon our left,
aad was massing troops on his right for that
purpose. Our lines are long, but connected
lrom right to left by parallel roads, by which
we can rapidly reinlorce any poiat assailed.
All day the men have occupied the trenchee
in anticipation of an attack. Scarotly amaa
was permitted to leave his post for any pur
pose. The oay closed without any other en
gagement than that which is continually going
on during night and day?the conflict between
sharpshooters and skirmishers. No one oan
tell how soon the struggle may break upon us
Every one Is braced for the encounter, willing
to enanre everything so that the war may end
with the close ot this terrible campaign.
Crawford's division, oftheSth corps, slipped
from their place in the front, adjoining Burn
side's men, this morning. Our batteries en
gaged the enemy for a short season, occupying
their attention until their place was filled, and
they gone towards the leit.
Very little change has been made in our
lines. Tbe 6th corps have cone no nearer the
Weldon railroad. It is, perhaps, a mile from
tbpir advance to the track. They, like the other
corps d'armte, are strongly entrenched. A
squadron of cavalry started toward Suffolk
early this morning. They will probably not
stop until they reach Norfolk. I believe the
road is in good condition most of the way, at
least as far as Zunl.

[Correspondence of the Phila. Inquirer.]
liBADQCABTBRS ARMY OP THB POTOMAC,
Near Petxbsburo,. June 21. V p. m.?This
morning opened with one of the heaviest can
nonades ot the whole campaign, and the im
pression was produced on people at a distance
from the scene that a terrible battle was in
progress. It transpired soon, however, that
the enemy had merely been wasting ammuni
tion in a concentrated and tremendous but
harmless fire upon the troops and batteries of
the 19th corps, from his batteries beyond the
Appomattox. Terrible as was the storm of
shot, shell, grape and cannister that rained
along our lines on the right, the damage done
was utterly insignificant
The ball opened at about 6 30 a m., and closed
at about 9. Our own batteries during this time
were not silent, but replied in spirited style.
While this artillery fire was raging, a charge
was made on a position of G?n. fctannard's
division of the 18:h corps, by Hoke's brigade of
rebels. About four hundred of them succeeded
in entering the front line of our rlfle-ptta?a
mere picket line, our skirmishers retiring to
main breastwork of tbe front line of battle.
While these were coming in our troops did not
fire from tbo fear tbat they might hit our own
men.
The rebels, encouraged by this, advanced
boldly towards our intrenchments, but the
moment our skirmishers had all got in a volley
was immediately flr<;d into the ranks of the
enemy that mowed them down feari ally. Their
progress was all at once stopped, and to retreat
was as much out of the question as to advance.
While placed in this dilemma our men con
tinued firing rapidly upon them. They made
signs of a desire to surrender, which was not
at first perceived, but as soon as their wish
was ascertained firing was discontinued and
thev received a cordial invitation to come in
The number ol prisoners taicen was one hun
dred and eixty six, and thirty-six wounded
wre brought ofl'the ground. The remainder
of the four hundred must have been either
killed or too badly wounded to get away, as
tbe men captured say none went back.
Yet terday afternoon, General Wright, ?with
the Sixth Corps, made a movement to the left
and reached the Weldon Railroad, ot which he
destroyed some five miles. Fires were made
along it which destroyed the ties and at the
same time warped the iron so as to be unfit lor
future use. Having accomplished his object
he returned to hia former position.

Rebel Attack on Burnside?A Desperate
Conflict? They are Repulsed with Great
Lo*s?Our Loss Small?The Engagement
with the Sixth Corps on Wednesday
Condition of Our Army.
HBADqCAUTKBS ABMY OF THB POTOXAC,
June 25, 0 A. m., Saturday.?The only fighting
that took place yesterday was an attack made
by the enemy on Burnside, but whether in
tended as a feint to cover 6ome more important
move, or an attempt to breakthrough his lines,
it was a failure.
They opened with a heavy fire of artillery,
which was returned by our batteries, and the
rebels, making a charge, were driven back in
confusion, upwards of one hundred of them
being captured.
This occurred about 8 a m., and the artillery
firing was kept up for an hour, wnen all be
came quiet at that point.
About the same time a battery opened in
front of a hospital on the left of the Fifth Corps,
which tbe rebels seemed desirous of cleaning
cnt, bni they were deterred by our guna before
any damage resul'ed to us.
Picket firing is still kept up along nearly the
entire line, and in almost every hoepital are a
lew victims of this species ot warfare.
It is almost impossible for a change to be
made in the skirmish line without some loss
from the enemy's sharpshooters, and these
lines have to be relieved al frays after dark on
that account.
The engagement between the Sixth corps and
the enemy for the possession of the railroad,
on Wednesday was quite severe, particularly
in front of the Second Division, commanded by
Gen. Wheaton. ?
Only a short distance of the railroad had
been destroyed, when the party ware attaeked
by a heavy force of the enemy under General
Andrews, supported by Wilcox's diriaion.
CapL Beattie, of the 3d Vermont, was in
charge of the party that reached the road, and
he fell back slowly, while the skirmish line
held tbe enemy in check; but a body of the en
emy made a flank movement, expecting to tnrn
the left flank of his line of battle. They, how
ever, did not penetrate far enough, although
they succeeded in takiag a large number of the
skirmishers prisoners, prlnsipally of the 4tn
and ll'h Vermont Regiments of the Vermont
brigade. , . . . ..
The enemy afterwards advanced and at
tempted to break through the line at several
points, but were met with such a heavy fire
from our forces that they were driven back
every time with heavy loss.
They finally, at dark, gave up the effort,
and returned across the railroad embank
ment, where they took up an advantageous
*'<Our?ioea was very light In killed and wound
ed, while that of the enemy, it is supposed,
was more than double.
We lost quite a number of prisoner*; bnt the
fltures cannot be correctly given.
Supplies arrive at the lront regularly, and
tbo troops lack nothing ia this respect, but they
sufler some lrom tbe scarcity cf water.
