THE EVENING STAR
W. D. WALLACH, Editer and Proprietor. WASHINGTON CITY: WEDNESDAY..SEPTEMBER _0| 1T64. VT READING MATTER ON ? VERY PAGI. 811 OUTBIDS TOE INT1BX8TINQ T1L1 GRAPHIC ANP OTHER MATTIB._ FROM THE FRONT. Firing la Front ef Petersburg Yesterday, Tbe mail steamer Charlotte V ander hi 11, Capt? Colmary, arrived here this morning at half past six from City Point She reports tbst early yesterday morning there was some tiring along our lines fronting Petersburg, but not sufficient to Indicate thai an engsgement was in progress. Tbe Vsnderbilt brought up twenty, five rebel deserters who desire to take the oath and be released. These deserters are mostly unassigned con script?? from the workshops at Richmond, and they say tbat tbe recent order of tbe Confede rate authorities purging the government shops of mechanics, heretofore exempted, has caused a grand skedaddle among the workmen. A large government manufacturing establishment at Richmond, known as the Anderson Shop, has loot one hundred and eighteen men within tbe past few days, wbo bave run away with tbe determination of coming North whenever an oppor tnnity presents Itself. The conscripts assert that Early's defeat has caused tbe greatest gloom in Richmond, and that it is feared that Sheridan will make a movement on Lynchbnrg, from which point __ e can strike the Danville railroad,therebv cut ting off their principal supply communication. Tbeee fears have caused a belief that it will be necessary to evacuate Ricbmond, and it Is revly talked of upon tbe streets. Tbe Virginia troops, however, pro test against the evacuation of Richmond, and should the rebel authorities do so, it would cause mutiny among the Virginians. These conscripts de clare tbat it is not to be denied that the Con federates aromahing preparations which look very muA JTe in evacuation. Several gov ernment wc?. hops have been closed, the ma chinery of which has been removed further South. When these parties left Richmond, a lew days ago, the machinery of other shops were being packed for removal If deemed ne cessary. The enlisted deserters speak in tbe highest terms of the treatment they have received since reaching our lines, and say that if this fact was known to tbe rebel troops desertions would be more numerous. Tbe Confederate authorities, these deserters say, are filling up the depleted regiments with old men and boys, inclnding these who bave heretofore been discharged from the military service on account of wounds and other per manent disabilities. The conscripts are sub jected to much ridicule by tbe regular soldiers, and tbe desertions among tbem are quite nu merous. At Poiot Lookout a number of rebel officers were taken on board, who are to be transferred to Northern prisoners. MU3T1BSD 0??, Major -?? E. Johnson, A. D. C, serving with General He-Utz!eman In the Northern Depart ment, has been mustered out of service by spe cial orders No 305, iseued from the War De partment. PEACE RUMORS. Later Reports from Georgia?Governor Brown and Alexander H. Stephens Nego tiating with Sherman ? Commissioner? Sent to the Rebel Lines. Louisville, Sept, 26.?Sunday's Journal says: ?>It is stated, on what is deemed as trust worthy authority, tbat Governor Brown, of Georgia, bas tendered peace propositions to General Sherman. The General has appointed commissioners to go into the rebel lines and confer with the State authorities of Georgia "Governor Brown, it is rumored and be lieved, is sustained in his policy by Alexander 11 Stephens, who is operating in the back ground. Tbe commissioners are said to be alresdy in conference with the Governor, and ihepeace propositions will soon be forwarded to wa_ hington for the President's approval. "This is an important movement, as Georgia, occupying tbe position she does, may be con sidered the keystone State o? the Southt.n Confederacy. We are assured that the story is true, and sincerely hope tbat the movement may meet with success. No civilians of any kind will be granted passes to Atlanta, not even members of the Sanitary Commission." Fihahcial.?The New York Commercia Advertiser oi yesterday evening says: The stock market opened with a decidedly stronger feeling than yesterday. The heavy de cline has brought on a few outside orders, and a strong disposition is shown by strong outside capitalists to buy freely of tbe most prominent railroad stocks, but this morning the market was principally in the hands of the brokers, and included as usual, a large amount of short transactions, tbe "bulls," even after the very heavy fall of Saturday and yesterday, being too cantious to make any large operations for a rise. The feeling is decidedly more buoyant, and tbe general impression is that prices must rebound within a few days. There was a decidedly stronger tone in Gov ernment securities. Tbe money market is less affected by tbe panic of tbe last few days than might have been expected. There is no extreme pressure for money, nor any important variations from the rate of 7 per cent, on call loans. Gold opened steadier this morning, and tbe price bas been sustained by tbe heavy pur chases to cover shorts. There is a great scar city of cash gold, upon which % per cent, is rapidly paid. The deliveries are very irregu lar. Tbe Evening Post says : The partial cessation of tbe panic to which we referred yesterday continues. Notwith standing the peace rumore lrom Louisville, the speculative feeling is stronger, and for the present quotations show a tendency to advance. Gold opened at ?'.?.?;, and after rising to 195 and declining to 192*, closed at 191. exchange is active at 109al09jf for gold. The Ficht ih the Valley.?Tbe Richmond Examiner says : From a gentleman who left General Early's army on Mondav night we have some few ad ditional particulars of the late fight. The attack was made by tbe enemy on Mon day morning, just after daybreak. Our camp tons taken completely by surprise. The enemy came upon our men in overpowering force, and bis attack was so sudden snd unexpected that our forces were thrown, tor the while, into considerable confusion. Tbe fight raged all <lay. At night Gen. Early fell back to Fisher's Hill, bringing with him all his wagons and supplies. Tbe enemy bad been strongly rein forced just before tbe flgbt Accounts -tat; that reinforcements to the number of some fifteen er twenty thousand men had been re ceived. Everything indicated tbat the enemy was in great strength. Gen. ? iiudes was killed about ten o'clock in the morning, while in the act of rallying some portion cf bis division. He was struck on ibe head bv a fragment of shell, and was killed instantly?never speaking after receiving the blow._ RoescRABz ahi) McClellah.?A corres pondent ol the Cincinnati Gazette writes from m Louis : A foolish story has been in circulation since tbe Chicago Convention that Gen. Rosecranz intends to support McClellan. Of course no one believes tbat he would do so because of a preference tor the peace platform of Chicago, or for the peace warrior who failed to support tn- at Rich Mountain, and then stole tbe lau rels of bis victory; and it any person believes tbat be would desert his principles because of tbe injustice with which be has been person ally treated, that person must bave forgotten the persistent silence under slander, the steady adherence to duty under official persecution, tbat ba>e really been one of the finest specta cles of self-denying patriotism the war has ex hibited. _ larORiAHT t? ?Jortoagers_From the following it appears iha.

TELEGRAPHIC NEWS. FROM THE FRO*T. Correspondence Associated Press.j Hbadquabtbbs Abxy Potomac, Sept, 26.? Quiet still prevail* in front of Petersburg, broken only by the usual picket Bring with oc casional artillery duels, the effect of which is merely a large consumption ol powder by both parties. A good deal of heavy firing was heard yes terday and to-day, in the direction of James River, supposed to be from tbe gunboats. A large body of rebel cavalry were reported this afternoon to be moving to our left, but if so, their object has not yet been developed. Three scouts were arres'ed within our lines yeeterday, and evidence has been obtained, which is said to be strong enough to convict them. Two citizens were also arrested, charged with giving aid and comfort to the enemy. An order has been issued in relation to the loss of colors in battle, namely: HKADt'l'ARTKRS ARMY OF THB POTOMAC, Sept. 23, 1-SC4.?Thefollowingorderof the Com mander of the Second Division. Second Army Corps, having been transmitted to these head quarters for the consideration of the Com manding General, the same is approved and confirmed, and it is announced that hereafter no regiment or battery that lose* iu colors in ac tion will be allowed to carry others without the authority of the Commanding General, and such permission will not be given iu cases where it shall appear that a regiment or bat tery has lost its colors through misconduct in battle, until such troops shall, by their bravery on other fields, have fully retrieved their tar nished honor.

Headquarters 2d Division, 2d Abmt Cobps, Aug. 30, 1864.?The following named regiments having lost their regimental colors in action, are hereby deprived of the right to carry colors until by their conduct In battle they show themselves competent to protect them: 6th New York heavy artillery, 264th New York vol*., and36th Wisconsin vols. The officers and men of the command should remember that their colors should be the last thing surrendered, and that in all well regu lated military organizations it is considered disgrace for a majority of the command to re turn from the field of battle without them.

FROM NASHVILLE. Skirmishing with Forrest?A Buttle Im minent. Naphville, Sept. 27.?There was skirmish ing with the rebel force under Forrest all day yesterday. Roseeau fell back two miles from Pnlaski, but read van ced, and holds a politl?n In the town up to 7 p. m., and to-day the enemy ad vanced their skirmish line to within half a mile of ours. They will probably advance their lines and attack in the morning. Our loss in to-day's fighting will not exceed eighty men. Prisoners captured in Marshall connty state that Forre-t has twenty pieces of artillery and about 7,000 men. Roseeau, by a strategic movement, invited an attack from tbe rebel commander, but he did not respond. There is no telegraph in working order to Pulaski. It is rumored in Atlanta that two trains were captured on Monday by the rebel force at Big Shanty on the Chattanooga Railroad. Officers just from tbe front confirm this statement. Col. J L. Donalson has organized tbe entire force of the Quartermaster's Department, numbering over 7,000 men, comprising ? regi ments. They are ready at any moment to co operate with the regular troops.

MBIT OF SECRETARY BEWARB TO THB FRONT. Secretary Seward and Hon. E. B. Wa*h> burne left Washington on Saturday for City Point on the steamer Baltimore, Capt, Hitch ell, on a vleit to the front. The party reached City Point at U o'clock Sunday morning, and accompanied by General* Grant, Meade and W .irren, with the members of their respective i. =fs. proceeded to visit the works In front ot Petersburg. 'The day was remarkably quiet, the only Bring going on being an occasional exchange of shot* between picket* The spires of the cockade city were plainly to be seen. Tue party returned to City Point, spending tie evening at the modest tent-headquarter? of Gen. Grant, where they dined, Gen. Butler and other officers of note being present. The next morning the Baltimore took the party up James river, and on it* way up was joined by the Greyhound, Gen. Butler's steamer, having on board Gen. B. with Gen. Ord and Gen. Bir ney. Both boats (the Baltimore and the Grey. hound) steamed to within ?, of a mileof Dutch Gap and the remainder ot the distance was traveled in Gen. Butler's six oared gig, as be ing a less conspicuous object forthe rebel gun ners than the steamers. At tbe canal some time was spent in witness ing the satisfactory progress of the canaling operations, and the visitors examined with considerable interest the "go-lor" (or gopher) holes dug by the negro soldiers in the side of tbe high bank (cutting; to protect themselres from the rebel shells. While the party were viewing the canal no shells were fired by tbe enemy, an unaccount able act of courtesy on their part, considering the distinguished targets they had just then in range, bnt the gig had hardly left with them on its return to the steamer?, when the rebels opened fire on the canal workmen, replied to by our gun* on the bins', and some of the rebel shells burst piquantly near to the excursionists, who, however, were soon out of harm's way without casualty. Steaming down James river, the Baltimore and Greyhound were lashed together, and th? party dined together on the Greyhound, and when some distance below City Point the boats were separated. Gen. Grant and the other offi cers returning up river in the Greyhound, and Secretary Seward and party going on board the Baltimore, which then entered upon her retnrn trip to Washington. About ten o'clock at night, while in the bay, the crank-pin of the Baltimore broke, leaving tbe vessel in a disabled and helpless condition; but by firing guns and sending up rockets, the attention of the steamship Warrior (whichfor tunately happened tobe in the vicinity) was attracted, and the Warrior coming to the res cue, took the Baltimore in tow, bringing her up to Giesboro, trom whence a tug conveyed the distinguished party to the Navy-Yard, where they arrived about 6 o'clock last eve ning. _| Pkrponal.?Major General Hooker, Brig.

Tbe meetiDg waa called to order at 8 o'clock by the President, C. S. Noyes, Esq. Reports from commute-, being called for, Mr. Murtagh, from the committee appointed at tbe previous meeting to call on Gen. Fry, reported that they had performed that mission, and were kindly received by that officer To their re quest be replied that he should decline giving any more credits to the city for voluntary en listments made prior to the present draft. He thought he had been liberal in the 33 per cent, which tie naa allowed upon tbe enrollment. In sell-defence, tf credits were insisted upon, he would be compelled to open the case and add on the allowance. Tbe speaker stated that one credit had been allowed in the person of a soldier who had enlisted at the Arsenal since the beginning of their effort?) to fill the quota. Mr. Sem mes reported that he had put in four men yesterday, reducing the quota to loe. Re cruits were presenting themselves very fait, and if he bad twelve days more he could fill the quota. The draft for this ward would take place on Thursday next. A committee of colored citizens, by their chairman, Mr. John F. N.Wilkinson,reported tbat from two meetings of their people, held on Monday and Tuesday evenings, they bad col lected tbe snm of $119, which amount he hand ed over to the treasurer, Mr. Semmes. Mr. El vans desired to know if any part of the 850,000 voted by the Council on Monday evening could be obtained in furtherance of tbe important objects of these meetings. Mr. Murtagh, replied that he had spoken to the Mayor upon the subject and that gentle man's opinion was that the appropriation could not be made available. Mr. McGinnis then offered a resolution that a committee of five be 'appointed to wait on tbe Mayor and ascertain from him whether or not the proportion of money due that ward could be obtained in thirty, sixty or ninety days to enable them to get recruits. Tbe com mittee consists of Messrs. McGinnis, Elvans, Murtagh, Lloyd and Yeatman. The associa tion then adjourned until to-night at half-past ? o'clock.

Dead.?Mollie Miller, formerly the propri etress of a noted house of ill-fame in the Sec ond Ward, departed this life Monday night after a long illness. We bear that she has left her real estate and house furniture to an ex policeman, who bad been her business agent, and to whose fair dealing she was indebted for the comfortable circumstances In which she was enabled to abandon her former course of life.
