FROM THB FRONT.
Nothing especially interesting was received
from tbe Army of the Potomac this morning.
The advanced position gained last week is
thoroughly strengthened, bnt there is little
danger of the enemy attempting to dislodge
onr army. Lee being considered too weak to
make such a movement.
? Bison al.?Mr. Wm. F. Girens, of this city,
Tice Censal to Martinique, is in town on a
short visit, looking very much improved in
health from his two years residence in Mar
tinique.
Mr. Frank Henry, of tbe New York Tribune,
,s in town, fresh from Sheridan's command.
He says tbat Sheridan's men are in wonderful
spirits, despite the hardships of their severe
fighting and tremendous march es in pursuit of
the fleeing rebels, and that they, one and all,
TOte Sheridan ??a brick."
Thb Ixcbbase or thb Pcblic Dbbt.?An
elaberate series of investigations into the in
crease of ?-blic debt during the war has just
been compiled by Dr. Elder, of the Treasury
Department. The results show that the mean
increase of the public debt during thirty-nine
months, since July, 1861, is, as near as may be,
a million and a half of dollars per diem during
tbe first two months of this period. The mean
increase was one million three hnndred
thousand dollars. Subsequent to tbat it
stands a mean of one million nine
bnndred thousand dollars, exceptional days
showed a maximum of three millions
ana a minimum ot one million dollars, but the
mean for the time has been as above stated, one
million five hnndred thousand dollars per day.
Thie statement entirely disposes of the bowl
constantly made by Copperheads upon the
vast increase of the public debt. Their docu
ments, journals and banners ring constant
changes on that subject, stating that the in
crease of tbe public debt to have averaged at
least tbree million dollars per day since the
commencement of the rebellion.

Tue Times oa Farbagut's Victoe-?-.?The
London Times, of September l.th, in summing
up the results of Admiral Farragot's victory,
says :
We think the reader will admit that this Is a
most extraordinary battle, and, perhaps, the
most wonderful part of it is the comparative
impunity with which it appears that wooden
ships can still engage an iron-clad. It is ob
vious to surmise that the result might have
been different if the Tennessee had attacked
her aatagonlst with sheila instead of with rifle
bolts, which merely cut clean holes through
their side?, but it is also clear that "ramming"
cannot be tried, as it was in Hampton Roads,
if ships can only move as to elnde the ram.
What destroyed the Congress and the Cumber
land was that tbey were mere sailing vessels,
and conld not evade the shock, whereas Far
ragnt'a veeaels, by the aid of their screws, es
caped fatal damage, and at last, being fourteen
to one, actually beat their great antagonist at
his own proper game. In fact, the Tennessee
was literally bustled into surrender. Her
crew were knocked off their feet every five
minutes, aad were no longer fit for fighting,
tbongh their ship was substantially uninjured.*
finally, what are we to think either of Con
federate plating or Federal guns, when snch
enermoas pieces fail to produce any effect on
armor at ranges measured, not by yards, but
by fe*-t. or even inches I These are questions
which will be asked with considerable inter
re*, and tbe battle in Mobile Bay will, perhaps,
add one more lesson to those which we have
received from the American war.
Cbowdibo thb Caks ? Persons who com
plsin of the crowding of be city passenger
railway cars ha.e la tU-ir own hands the
most effectual remedy for tbe evil, namely,
i.pvr to get on a car which tbey see has got
its lull complement ot p-ssengers. If they do,
they, and not tbe companies are to blame.?

FRODI THE FRONT.
Warren Gains a Position Commanding
the Sent h Side Railroad.
The new mail steamer Manhattan, Captain
Byther, arrived here this morning from City
Point She reports that no heavy fighting has
taken place in front of Petersburg since our
last report.
Warden has swung around on the left to a
position commanding tbe South Side Railroad,
where he 1* erecting entrenchment* and
mounting heavy guns, that it is believed will
prevent the rebels from using that road. It
was reported at City Point that on Tuesday
morning at five o'clock, Warren extended his
lines so as to occupy the railroad, but the re
port was not credited, as it is not deemed
probable that the rebels will relinquish this
railroad connection, so all important to them,
without stubborn resistance.
The Manhattan brought up forty-four rebel
officers, captured by the 18th corps on the north
side of the James river. They are under
charge of Capt. Powell aud a detachment of
the 68th Pennsylvania r?giment, and rank from
lieutenant to lieutenant colonel, including sev
eral majors. Lieut. Col. Maury, who com
manded one of the rebel forti filiations on Cha
pin's farm, is among the party.
Capt. Powell also had charge of thirty-two
rebel deserters wbo came into Oen. Butler's
lines. They have taken the oath, and desire to
go North.
Capt. Charles Corner, Capt. O. C. Locke,
Lieut. F. Bean, and Lient Davis, all ofthe 11th
New Hampshire regiment who were wounded
on last Friday in the engagement ou our left
came up as passengers on the Manhattan.
The bodies of the following officers, who
were billed on the north side of the James
river on the 30th nit, were brought np on the
Manhattan: Capt. S. W. Yannys, Assistant
Adjutant General, 3d brigade, 3d division, ISth
corps; Capt. D. ?. Rix, 8lst New York; Lieut.
J. A. Fitch, 40th Mass.; Lient R. R. Thomp
son, 13th New Hampshire.
LATEST FROM THE FRONT.
IVIore Fighting on the North Side ef James
River?Capture of Another Line of Rebel
Entrenchments.
The transport steamer Belvidler arrived here
this morning from Fortress Monroe, which
place she left yesterday at 3 o'clock. She re
ports that yesterday morning heavy cannona
ding was heard there from the direction of
Chapin's farm, and a report was in circulation
at Fortress Monroe tbat our troops had driven
the rebels from another line of entrenchments.
Yesterday, four hospital beats arrived at
Fortress Monroe from Point of Rocks with
wounded troops belonging to the Army of the
James. Tbere was a large number of colored
soldiers among these wounded men.
FROM SHERIDAN'S ARMY.
We have late information from Sheridan'8
army to the effect that the rebel stories of his
having met with a repulse is an entire fabrica
tion, and tbat beyond the breaking down of
many of his horses necessarily by his forced
marches in pursuit of the enemy, he is in as
good aggressive condition as when he started,
a fact that the enemy will speedily ascertain
for themselves, we doubt not.
Eleven hundred prisoners captured by Sher.
dan at Fisher s Hill and beyond, have arrived
at Martinsburg en route to Fort Delaware.
Sheridan's movements have been so rapid
that he did not even have time to send back
prisoners to his rear, bnt was forced to carry
tbem along with him and teed them, making
rather a formidable drain npon his supplies,
but be has now received fresh supplies, and
will soon have a shorter line of supply, as the
Manasse* Gap railroad has already been re
paired as far as Rectertown. This line of sup
ply will also be more easily guarded, as the
Valley line swarms with guerrillas, all the
way from Martinsburg to Harrieonsburg.
It is believed that Early is yet at Charlottes
ville. _

Steady Progress of Our Army?The Rebels
Defending the Bine Ridge Gaps.
[Special Despatch to N. Y. Tribune.]
Washibotow; Oct. 5.?Your special corres
pondent sends tbe following to the bureau un
der date Martlnsbnrg, Y a., Oct. 4 :
The latest intelligence from Gen. Sheridan is
up till Saturday morning. At that Urne his in
fantry were still at Harrisonburg, while his
cavalry were east of the Bine Ridge, recon
noitering in the vicinity of Charlottes ville.
The rebel report.of a disaster to our cavalry
at Swift Head Gap is untrue. Instead ot meet
ing with a repulse we gained a victory, cap
tured about one hundred prisoners, and driv
ing the rebels through the GSp, which they
had fortified.
Rock Fish and Brown's Gap have been
strongly fortified by the rebels, and are de
fended by considerable force. If they attempt
to make a stand there it will be bnt a repetition
of Fisher's Hill. The position is flanbable on
either side. It is probable the next informa
tion we get from Sheridan will come via Alex
dria.
Supply tram?, however, continue to go to
the front from this place, and as yet there is no
direct indication that Martlnsbnrg and Har
per's Ferry are to be abandoned as bases of
supplies.
A great many refugees, some rebel soldier?,
and large number? of negroes arrive here daily.
Gen. Max Weber has been ordered to report
to Gen. Sheridan.

of Lincoln and Johnson was held at Giesboro'.
The party numbered several thousand, and
the crowd in attendance was augmented by
the arrivai of tbe East Washington Lincoln
and Johnson Clnb (from tbe Nay y Yard) and
the club from tbls city. Tbe club of this city
were taken down by Messrs. C. M. Sloan aad
M. Reeves, employees of tbe Quartermaster's
Department at Qiesboro', in the tug Pacific,
Capt. Charles Brown, and tbe same tug brought
tbe Washington party back.

mansion at Qiesboro, which was brilliantly
illuminated. It was composed entirely of the

large number.
A. Q,. M. Pr?vost presided, and Mr. John
Cranfleld was secretary. There were a large
number of vice presidents.
Resolutions were adopted endorsing tbe nom
ination of Abraham Lincoln for President of

the people honor and love Abraham Lincoln
for bis many great and good qualities, for bis
straightforward honesty, for bis devoted love
for bis whole country, for bis noble magnani
imity, for his untiring industry and effort, and
the enlightened statesmanship witb which he
was so successful in the perpetuation ef the
constitution.
Tbey also endorse the nomination of Andrew
Johnson for Vice President, and resolve that
tbe Democratic platform favoring a cessation
of hostilities and a compromise with rebels in
arms, only makes it more imperative to prose
cute the war with renewed energy and I deter
mination, until tbe supremacy ofthe law is
vindicated, tbe rebellion subdued and the Gov
ernment established on a firm and enduring
basis of submission to the majority constitu
tionally expressed and they tlook with con
tempt and loathing upon those who, in tbe hour
of victory, give aid to traitors, and claim a
