Attack en Biraildc'i Lin*?Its Failure?No Damage Done. HBADQUARTKR8 ARMY Or TRB POTOMAC, Jane 29, 5 i. m ?An attack was made on Burneide's line about U o'clock on Saturday night, with the intention of driving back a working party who were engaged In digging entrenchments toward the enemy ?o aa to gain a better position in which to place gnna to I more effectually coyer the works in front. The firing waa very brisk for about an hour, re sulting in our men holding their ground and continuing their labora without any loaa of consequence. The usual amount of picket firing took place yesterday, being a little more persiatent in front of the 9th corps than at any other point. It ia usual to relieve the picket linea shortly after dark, and the enemy being generally on the alert at the least noise, invariably open fire, in tbe hope of being able to pick off some of our men while tbe change is being mad*. It ia sel dom any harm results from these attacks, aa the men have become so careful to screen them selves, that it la next to impoaaible for the rebel sharpshooters to get range on them. The health of the troops ia in tbe main good, considering the oppressively hot weather they have had since their arrival here, and tbe scarcity of water in this section. Tbe 18th corps seems to fcave the greatest number in tha hospital from tbe effects of the hot weather. The colored troops are reported aa being un affected by the heat. Surgeon Jackson, in charge of the 4th divi sion hospital, 9tb corps, reports that, in thatdl vision, only forty men out of four thousand were unfit for duty when they were put into tbe fight on Tuesday last to relieve tbe 2d corps. This tends to show how much better they can endure the scorching rays of the aun than the white troops. FROM NORTH CAROLINA. Successful Union Raid?Railroads Cut aad Stores Destroyed. New York, June 28.?The Herald says tbe expedition of General Palmer, from Newbern into the center of North Carolina has returned, and reports favorably of its progress. They destroyed the Wilmington and Weldon rail road, near Goldsboro', and immense quantities of rebel stores. They found the country almost deserted, and easily captured the few troops , left to guard the road. An Encouraging View of the Situation. [Special dispatch to New York Tribune.] waphihotom, June 27.?Mr. Dana, the As sistant Secretary of War, who will be accept ed throughout the United States aa onefof the most intelligent and cool observers that have studied the war, as well as one of the moet truth ? ful of men, has answered the questions of anxious inquirers here about the situation at Petersburg, to the effect that Lee's force is not more than two-thirds of Grant's;tbat our losses last week in the movement toward the Weldon Road was militarily unimportant, and that Orant bad bis hand on Lee's throat, and would keep his hold till he strangled him to death. He gives to all the assurance of onr final and conclusive success. Among the striking facts which Mr. Dana has mentioned is that we have at this moment 51,000 of tbe Rebel soldiers Erisoners in our bands. The public feeling ere to-night is one of absolute, unwavering confidence in the future and in Grant, and over and above all In Grant's army. The cool est and most soldierly beads in Washington now declare that it cannot be whipped?the nation, indeed, can lean on It. Closing of the Philadelphia Fair. Philadelphia, June 28.?The Sanitary Fair closed to-night. The attendance was larger than on any previous occasion. Tbeexcitement about the votes was very great. The principal ones resulted as follows: The sword to General Meade; camp chest to General Birney; horse equipments to General Hancock; silver vase to E.G. James, Esq., of the Corn Exchange Asso ciation. The principal competitor for the last was the Union League. There are no means of ascertaining the total proceeds of the fair, but they will exceed a million. From Fortress Monroe.

Destructive Fire in New York. N?w York, June 28.?A fire broke out in the cabinetmaker's establishment of Phelps & Kings ley, on Chatham street, this morning, destroying from fifty to seventy-five thousand dollars' worth of property. English Views of (.rant's Campaign. The progress of Grant toward Richmond is a theme of comment in all the leading English journals. The London Times says that Grant has evidently abandoned his original tactics and called strategy to the aid of brute force. It thinks the change undoubtedly betokens disappointment it not weakness, but adds: "It is not indeed impossible tbat Grant's army, after all its terrible losses, is as strong now as it was when the campaign opened. It is well appointed, and lacks nothing tbat greenbacks can procure. Itsequipmentis per fect, its artillery numerous, its provisions at present abundant, its health for the moment good, and itssplritssuchasthespiritsofAmer icans always are. It will fightas well as ithas hitherto done, and will bear the slaughter of a third of its numbers with the equanimity which so surprises Europeans. The General will, doubtless, use all his energy and attack the enemy again and again with the obstinacy of a man who knows tbat all depends on his success. On the one side are lame, popularity, the highest honors, the Presidency itself; on the other are obscurity, slander, and the association in men's minds with a Pope and a Hooker. A man who has done so much as Grant will struggle with des peration to do more. All that we can be sure of is tbat the Confederates will hare to stand the shock of a very powerful army wielded by an energetic will; and we may fnrtber pre sume that if they succeed in worsting such an antagonist, the effect on the Northern people will be greater than has been hitherto produced by any campaign." The Morning Post says Grant has undoubt edly shown great judgment and boldness, but the decisive battle hax yet to be fought. Tbe Daily News eulogizes Grant's strategic movements, and thinks that the worst he has now to fear is the malaria of the region around Richmond, and tbat it Richmond is to be pre served, it must be preserved by the army now under its walls. The Morning Star interprets the Persia's news as highly favorable to the North, and looks upon Grant's advance as a great victory. The Morning Herald treats the accounts as favorable for the South. Death of Thomas Hyer. Information reached the Coroner's office yes terday morning of the death of Thomas Hyer, the well known ex-champion of the American prize-ring, at bis late residence, No. 135 East Thirty-fifth street. Coroner Naumann soon afterwards proceeded to bold an inqneston the body. The evidence showed that Mr. Hyer had been complaining for several years past, and that about half-past twelve o'clock the night previous he returned home in a light wagon, accompanied by a stranger. He sat down on tbe stoop and called for ice water, which was furnished him. Soon afterwards Mr. Hyer complained of feeling sick, and shortly before two o'clock, a. m., he went to bed. Two hours and a half subsequently he woke up and asked his niece, Mary Harrison, then in attendance, lor more ice water. He spoke no more after that, and died shortly before six o'clock, a. m, he retaining his senses to the last. Deputy Coroner Thomas Robinson, M. D.f made a post mortem examination of the body: the right Inng was found bound down by ala pleuritic adhesions; both lungs were healthy; the heart was very large and fatty, and the pericardium filled and distended with serum; the liver was very much diseased, and the en tire structure of it entirely degenerated Into a scirrhus mass; the spleen was enormoosly en larged. ten and a naif inche* in length and eight inches in width, and weighed several pounds; the stomach was h*lthy: the kidneys were granulous; intestines healthy. In Dr. Robinson's opinion the immediate cause of death was "cardiac dropsy." The jury ac cordingly rendered a verdict to thatonect. Mr. Hyer was 45 years of age, aad a native ol New York.?If. r.

[From the Peterabarg paper*, Jane ?.J Incessant Firing Dnrtpg Monday Night. From ten o'clock antil day-dawn arouaa the entire lime the popping of musketry wu dis tinctly heard throughout the city. It wu In c* srant, not a sec on d'a time elapatng between the dlechargea of the pieces, and at the dietanoe we occupied resembled more the irregular ex plosion of flre.crackera than anything to which can liken it. ? Blakeley Oaa-Shelling the City. Yraurday morning early that same old thirty two pou?der Blakeley of the enemy, which has now becoiirt ao tamlliar to the ears of Peters* burg people, commenced Its dally buainass, and at the nsuav intervals ot five minutes its reverberating nou- would break upou the ear. This gun is stationeaat or near Pace'afarm, on the City Point road, *ad has thrown many chella into the lower pari 0f the city, but ee far has caused no destruction cf life On Monday evening one of the missiles fen near the market house, entering one of the small brick buildings to the weat of the market, occupied by Mr. Frank Perkins, cutting a girder tn two and scattering the plastering in all dir??eUons. An. otter scraped the tin rosf of the Southsidrt depot building, glanced over the depot yard, ricocheted, and finally brought up at the bot tom of the Appomattox. The Enemy Opened On frsm the Cheater field Side. About ten o'clock a conple of our batteries, occupying an advantageous position on the Chesterfield aide of the Appomatox, paid their respects to the enemy's guna in the vi cinity ot Jordan's farm, stopping the thunders of the Blakeley monster for a while, and caus ing the gunners to leave, at first in twos, and then, as the locality became hotter, in squads, five, eight, ten, and fifteen. Our batteries wore supposed to have disarranged matters In that locality considerably, as we did not hear from tits Blakeley for several hour*. Abont seven last evening she opened again and oontinnsd her firing at the usur.i Interval*. Baldy Smith Crsssingthe Appsmattex. Large bodies of troops, supposed to be at tached to Baldy Smith's Eighteenth Army Corps, were observed crossing the pontoons on the lower Appomattox, and it is not improbable that Oeneral Ulysses, chafing, under the re straint imposed by our well-massed lines around our city, will repeat his often tried pro cess of hurling large columns against our en trenchments. They will be welcomed as they were at Spottsylvaula Court House and Coal Harbor. Grant's Fortification* in Priaee Qesrge. A gentleman who left Prince George a day or two since saya that Qraut has apparently a very large force betweea the derencea of Pe teraburg and City Point. He is heavily forti fied, his line of earthworks extending from the Appomattox, at a point a short distance below Petersburg, to ana beyond the farm of Tim othy Rives, in Prince George, in a southeast erly direction. Here it unites with another line, which atretchea off toward the James river, in a northeasterly direction?the two forming an acute augle, or, in other words, a very broad letter V. The northeasterly line Ls, of course, intended to guard againatany move ment which may be made to strike the enemy from hla flank from the eastern side. Operatlsna at Reams'* Station. Pktkk?I5Dko, J uue !?.?.?The Yankee raiding party, after cutting the Weldon road at Reama's a^atlon, proceeded toward Dinwiddle Conrt House for the purpose of cutting the Southsidt road at that point, and telegraphic communi cation has already been interrupted there. The water tank and depot were burned at Reams'*, and one hundred and fifty yards of the track torn up, but it will be repaired to-night. ? force of oun has been sent In pursuit. The Latest from Grant's Army. The latest from Grant's army, Tueaday night, now arrived Petersburg, at 11 e'clock, was a villainous shell The noiay missile fell In Bars street, striking the large mulberry three in front of the old Intelligencer building, and cutting off a limb some eight inches in di ameter. Nobody hurt. Naval Operations. It was expected that oar rams and the bat tery at Howlett's would, on yesterday morn ing, renew their fire upon the Yankee moni tors lying east of Butch Gap-, but no cannon were heard in that direction up to a late hour last evening, and there were no rumors ot an engagement. Onr people have learned to ex pect little from our iron-clads, and naval af fairs occupy very little of public attention. Indians Captured among the Ynnkee Prl*. oner*.

Johnston, as well as the whole army, is anxious for an engagement. A Fbbmont Ratification Mbetino. ? A Fremont ratification meeting was held at New York on Monday evening. The Times tells ua what sort of an affair it was: The Fremont ratification last night was & curious affair, admirably in keeping with the movement itself. It was respectably large and reasonably enthusiastic, but both its size and its enthusiasm were due to everything else than the Fremont element. Inside the meet ing seemed to be about equally divided be tween the friends of McClellan and those of Lincoln, while outside It was almost exclu sively a McClellan gathering. Occasional cheers were given for Fremont and Cochrane, but without any special zest er heartiness. To all intents and purposes it was a Democratic gathering, just as the movement itself is, neither more nor less than a Democratic dem onstration. There was not at the meeting, nor is there anywhere, either in this State or any other, the slightest desire to make Fremont President, or the faintest shadow of belief that, upon any ground, personal or political, he ought to be elected. He is used as a willing tool by men. who, like himself, have revenges to gratify, or by others who seek a party tri umph to aid in the defeat of Mr. Lincoln. Just now the Democrats are using him to swell the roll of Mr. Lincoln's enemies. Gen. Grant and thk Prbsidkncv.?In commenting upon the possibility of Gen. Grant, in a certain contingency, accepting the nomi nation for the Presidency, the Milwaukee Sen tinel avers that it "knows from perfectly reli able sources that Gen. Grant has peremptorily refused, in advance, any offer of the Preci dency. He replied to those who were seeking to learn his views on the enbject, that while the war lasted no earthly inducement could take him voluntarily troin bis present position, and that even should the war come to a speedy conclusion he would be the most ungrateful of men to run against Mr. Lincoln. This decla ration comes to us through the most truat wortby sources, and affords to us conclusive proof that Gen. Grant has fully decided not to enter the political arena. And tnoae who know him know that he ia not apt to waver when he has made up his mind one way or the other." Sbnatb Confirmations.?The following nominations have been confirmed by the Senate in executive session: Daniel S. Dickenson, to be Commissioner on the part of the Senate, nnder the treaty of Jnly, 1863, with Great Britain for the final settle ment of clalma of the Hndaon Bay and Paget Sound Agricultural Company. Ira H. Smith, Kansas, to he Register of the Land Offlce at Topeka, Kansas. Colonel J. L. Chamberlain, 20th M***nchn setts, to be Brigadier-General. Colonel F. C.
