XJtfBSWOW $kttlei. In yesterday"- paper Ve TCBpcctfully submitted the Inquiry whether civil or martini lnw w as the govern ing power lu this city. We have been en lightened. The little Abolition elteet which illuminates the universe from State street by its evening ftilmtnations, has settled the vexed question. The learned pwidit of that concern announces thitt "tire army regula tions prohibit the sale of liquor to soldiers," wild therefore tiie attest Kit old Snyder Schneider and his son, by the party who got drank at his lionse vas "both proper and just." We will inquire no further. We only wanted to know what authority did govern, and -sinco the evening luminary has decided that "the army regulations" are the supreme law, tlrcrc Is an end of the business. The utatuto books should be burnt, the City Council should adjourn sine die, and the Mayor nail up his ofllce. These authorities "linger snperflous upon the stage" since the arfny regulations are found to contain all needful legislation for the government of the city. m Fatal Accident A Soldier Run Over by a Tbaix and Horribly Mangled. A young man belonging to company E, 30th Ohio veterans, named John Mclntyrc, from Delaware cou nty, was run over by a locomo tive and a passenger car at the depot yes terday afternoon, and so terribly mangled that no hopes are entertained of his recov ery. He appeared to be intoxicated, and although warned off of the track, again re turned to it just as a locomotive with one car attached was passing, the wheels of which ran over his arms and legs, crushing them lu a horrible manner. He was re moved to the government hospital, where one of his limbs was amputated, but at last accounts the chances were that he would not survive until morning. Released. Snyder Schneider and his son, ol whose arrest by the Trovost Guard we made mention yesterday, was released from durance at the Barracks' guard house, by Major Skylcs as soon as he became acquaint ed with the circumstances. Major Skylcs doubtless recognizes the fact that the guard had no right to arrest a citizen for a viola tion of the city ordinances, however great the offense, notwithstanding the brilliant discovery of an evening paper that the ar my regulations authorize such proceed ings. The parties arrested are doubtless infamous characters, eminently deserving the attention ol the police, to whom the soldiers should have promptly turned them over. It it Is not the business of the police to take charge of such characters, we don't know what they are lor. Casualties in Ohio Regiments. Gov. Brough yesterday received the following list of killed and wounded Ohio soldiers in the battles of the Wilderness, from Mr. Wetmore, the Ohio agent at Washington: Killed Major Wm. S.

It is a true and trite anylng that we should cultivate the beauti ful, for the useful will attend to Itself; and in these early days of summer, every one who owns a foot of fertile soil, or rood of heath, or rod of hillside, whereon to let a flowered trail or vino to clamber, should improve the present opportunity, so that when mid-summer comes these frail and fair censors may fling their fragrance to the air. No matter if you do not own the house or yard which you inhabitstill plant flow ers and trailing vines, as well as to greet the passer-by, as for your own heart's sake. Provost Marshal's Business.

Washington, May 10. The Arm' of the Potomac had a portion of the day to recu perate. Buniaiue on Monday began tho at t vck on the left with jfreat fury and with an encouraging degree of success. lie hud a light the day before, in which, to use his own words, "Ye whipped old Longstrcet." Our army could not be in a more cheerful condition. All the men are sanguine ot success, and count the days when we shall, in triumph, enter the rebel capital. Lee lately issused an order in relation to supplies, in which he aid communication with Richmond was cut off, and it was im possible to furnish the men with stores. I Fill's corps had no rations Issued for three days. Lee enjoins upon his men the neces sity of tho capture of supplies from the Yankees. Up to this moment they have failed to capture a single wagon. The roads are lu most excellent traveling order, but very dusty. All the battles thus far have been a series of attacks and re pulses. Muskets arc almost entirely used. The swampy nature of the ground rendered artillery impracticable. Lee very absurdly claims victory when he withdraws from our front and retires to ward Richmond. (ten. Torbett's division of cavalry whip ped the rebel cavalry near this place and drove thcin from Spottsylvania C. II- but being reinforced with infantry, they drove our cavalry a short distance. Tho Mary land brigade., 4th division, Oth corps, coining to their support,the fighting was exceeding ly tierce. Generals Torbctt and.Kobin.son were both wounded. Gen. Sedgwick was shot through the head on Monday morning, wliilo superin tending the moving of some heavy guns on an angle with men just prepared. There was no skirmishing at the time, but an oc casional sharpshooter sent a bullet in that direction. Lee Retreating—Forward Movement by Great—Lively Engagement. mrnt Wabilnoton, May 11. All was quiet along the lines until late Monday evening, when it was thought the rebels were fall ing back, or that Lee had already gone to Rich nioiid to meet Smith, who was report ed close to there. Therefore a movement was determined on, nnd at 5 o'clock 1'. M. the whole line moved forward. The right crossed a branch of the river l'oe, and drove a light battery oil", posted to defend a small bridge. Warren's front and Han cock's lelt bad a lively engagement with the rebels, who threw shot and shell from a battery in the woods. The enemy were Anally driven back three or four miles, and at dark Friday crossed it. It is believed I.ongstreet's corps was tho only one in our front, and that he was left to 'impede our progress, wbilo Leo was attending to Smith. A rebel cavalry brigade is reported hav ing been seen on the north side of the riv er I'apiJau on Monday, near Fredericks [World's Special.] army was, on Monday, on the South bank of Glady river, between that and the river Poe. Ilia right stretch ed nearly to the Fredericksburg and Rich mond railroad, which he seemed desirous of reaching to obtain supplies or insure his safety. We have taken more prisoners in Lee's retreat than during Thursday's aud Fri day's battles. All information in Grant's possession is of the most favorable character, showing clearly Lee's retreat beyond Spottsylva-nia. A Terrific Engagement Between A Terrific Engagement Between Union and Rebel Gunboats-- The Rebels get the Worst of It. [Herald's Correspondence.] Xewbern, N. C, May 7. On Thursday afternoon, May 5th, the rebel ram Alber marle, accompanied by its sattelite, Cotton Plant, and the army gunboat Bombshell' captured by them at Plymouth, appeared at the mouth of Roanoke river. The gun boats Miami, Whiteheal, Ceres and Com-' modore Hull, lying close to tho river In the sound: on perceiving the rani designing to enter the sound, they made off as it fearful of an encounter, but only anxious to draw the ram into the sound. Tho ram and fol lowers pursued about twelve miles, where the gunboats Sassacus, Wyaluslng and Mat tabessett, double-enders, appeared. Our gunboats, seven in number, immediately opened tire and a terrific engagement en sued, lasting from 5 till 8 P. Si. During the early part of tho battle, th$ Cotton Plant succeeded in making her escape, and the ram, tiring rapidly, slowly and steadily retreated up the sound. The gun boat Bombshell was soon retaken with all on board, thirty-four in number. The Sassacus, having an iron prow, steer ed at full speed, and ran into tiie ram, strik ing her abaft the center, but apparently without inflicting injury. The Sassacus, however, was compelled to withdraw, hav ing her forward rudder knocked off, and a 100-pound Parrott shot fired by the ram through her boiler. Right had now set in, and the movement of the ram could not be accurately discerned: closely pursued by the gunboats, and under cover of darkness, the ram succeeded in gaining and entering Roanoke river, where the gunboats could not venture to follow. The ram carried at least four 100-pounders. She has not been seen since, but active measures are to be taken to capture or destroy her. Reports from Kingston report the rebel ram Neuse high aground. She draws seven and a half feet of water, and the river is only four and a half feet deep. The rebels for the present have abandoned it, and tak en the engine out. Dispatch from Secretary Stanton. WASHINGTON, May 11. To General Dix: A dispatch was received from the Army of the Potomao at 5 o'clock P. M. yester day. Both armies hold their positions at Spottsylvanla without material change. The enemy had been driven to their breast works. The 6th corps, Gen. Wright, had carried the first line of the enemy's rifle pits. Heavy skirmishing during the day. Nothing beard from Sherman or Butler E. M. STANTON. BATTLES AT SPOTTSYLVANIA. Accounts of Fighting Since Saturday. day. Xkw Yohk, May 11. The Tribune special has the following sketch of tha series of battles after that of Saturdav: Gen. Warren's corps passed on through Todds Tavern on Saturday night toward the front and at sunrise were within 21 a' miles of Spottsylvania ('. 11, and imme diately were put in action to relieve the cavalry. The enemy were also just in time for a .similar move, and Stuart's cavalry were simultaneously relieved by Ixing strcet's corns of iufantrv. The 7th corn's. tired from a long night's iiiiiroli, rushed into action at double quick, Gen. Robinson's division leading the charge. The rebels yielded before them, ar.d we then pushed them for three miles. The last engagement of this morning's light Was severe. Our loss was great. Gen. Robinson was severely wounded, but we charged them so far and so impetuously that our men were outflanked on the left, and had to fall back a short distance to form their lines anew. The enemy gained no advantage, lor our artillery was brought into action and the rebels were unable to occupy the position which our men had abandoned. The iith corps had suffered in the previous tight so severely that there was not a single divis ion of It in perfect fighting trim; but Gen. Augur, commanding the regulars, liled iu from the right and the position was held. Another desperate effort must be made be fore Spottsylvania C. II. would be in our possession. That point once reached, an open country aud fair battle-fields lie be fore us. About noon the batteries were posted ours on the edge of a piece of woods, theirs on the opposite liilf. The discharge of such lor some tune was quite brisk and se vere. As evening approached, Gen. Grant started to the front to take another glance at the position and inspire our troops for the grand onset which was soon to be made. Before he arrived atourlelt flank the rattle of musketry from theadvanoo skirmishers, and the straggling back of wounded men indicated that the moment had almost ar rived. Troops from the 5th and Cth corps, iu several heavy lines, were concentrated in front of the position to which the rebels had fallen back after the engagement in the earl v part of the day. Gen. Wright's division, already distin guished by most gallant conduct, took the lead. At 0;' j o'clock a shout was raised, and the attack commenced. Our troops moved out of the woods through a narrow open space and up a tangled thicket, which was held and fortified by tho enemy. At 7:15, as the light began to fade away, the heat of the firing began to cease, and now the enemy commence to give way, and the shouts of our men receding as the enemy were pushed along, showed that the issue's of the attack were favorable and decided. We had beaten the enemy, had drawn tlieni from the position which they had so strong ly contested, but the darkness was now so great we could not safely press them fur ther, and Spottsylvania Court House still remained that night in the hands of the rebels. -Monday morning was spent quietly iu camp, both for the much needed rest and for replenishing the army with rations. [Tribune special.] TIk.I)q,t;artf.rs Aumy op the Potomac, Mav 10. Our loss in the battles of Sunday and yesterday will probably amount to at least 2,500. Generals Grant and Meade were at the front last night personally superin tending Hancock's attack. Alter dispatching our special messenger last evening a heavy cannonading was opened on the rebels occupying Spottsyl vania C. H. Under cover of this fire, I bin cock crossed the Little River Poe, and push ed the enemy beyond the town. News reached us this morning that communica tion is opened betwewi us and Washington by way of Belle Plain and Fredericksburg. X mail is just in from Washington by this wav. Our wounded and prisoners are also to fie sent this way. We now hold about 5,000 prisoners. Gen. Morris, of the Oth corps, who was standing beside Gen. Sedgwick when he was killed, was wounded in the leg, but not seriously. By a Richmond paper found on a prison er, it is stated that the body of General Wadsworth was buried by them in the Wilderness. This would seem to determine the certainty of his death. It also says that Butler was witliiu thirteen miles of Rich mond. Our army Is pressing Lee's retreating forces on all sides, while our cavalry under Sheridan have been performing prodigies of valor. Our troops sustain their hard inarch inn; with wonderful endurance and in good spirits. For a long time after our Wilderness light it was difllcult to make the men believe that our movement was not a retreat, but when ascertaining beyond a question that we were advancing, their enthusiasm knew no bounds, and they made the woods ring with liuzzalis for Grant, Meade, Burnside, and everybody. Our wounded here suffered severely, and but for a humane and tender regard for their condition, we should undoubtedly ere this have been upon the south banks of the Anna forward still. Interesting from Charleston. New Yohk. May 11. Tho Hilton Head correspondent of the Tribune says a rebel deserter states that sixteen heavy mortars have been mounted in Sumter to fire upon the Morris Island batteries, and four Col n in biad s command the inside channel to ward Sullivan's Island. It is understood a combined land and naval attack has been ordered on Sumter. Seven iron clads are finished and afloat iu Charleston harbor. Folly island lias been fully prepared from the attempted attack of the enemy. All indications point to an early assumption of rebel offensive operations. Beyond Spottsylvania. Washington, May 11. It is reported that last night our headquarters were two miles in advance of Spotteylvnia C. H. A gen eral advance was ordered for 5 o'clock yes terday. Tuesday, evening, and the firing from "that hour to sundown is said to have been very heavy. It is stated that Grant lias captured a large amount of commissary stores. Grant Outflanks Lee. [Times' Special.] Washington, May 11. It is reported that Grant lias flanked Lee both on the right and left. A terrible battle occurred yes terday. Lee was driven across the South Anna river. Grant is still in close pursuit The Ironclads Engaged. Philadelphia, May 11. A special dis patch to the Bulletin from Washington says heavy firing was heard yesterday from Gen. Butler's headquarters. The ironclads were engaged. New York, May 11. The Herald says It is probable that Butler had another severe battle yesterday. It is likely also that a great battle between the Union ironclads and the rebel ironclads commenced yester day. There are five Union and three rebel Ironclads expected to take part in the en gagement. The Dalton correspondent of the Atlanta Register avers there has been greater con centration of Union forces in the direction of Chattanooga than reported on the Poto mac, and the Raleigh Press confirms the statement. Washington, May 10. It is believed from reports which have reached here to night, that there was no general engage ment yesterday: but as heavy firing was heard this morning at Aquia creek in the direction of Spottsylvania C. the con test must have been renewed. Our forces do not occupy the latter place, but are within several miles of it Large numbers of wounded are reaching Fredericksburg, and many officers wounded are expected to Arrive at Washington to-morrow. Congressional. WASHINGTON, May 11. Skxatk Rev. Mr. Bowman, ol Indiana, a Methodist, whs elected Chaplain. The bill equalizing the grade of line and naval officers was passed.
