The result of General Grant's mining op. eratfons and assault at Petersburg, is a bloody repulse. We assnme, of course, that the manly way is to look the facts square in the face, instead of trying to cover them np by falsehood. The consolation gained by pretending that disaster is victory, is short lived, and is dtarlj purchased by the neg lect of the means necessary to retrieve the disaster. Oar troopi were hurled upon the Inner line of intrencbments as strong as the one that had been mined at one point. The black troops appear lo have been sent on an impossible attempt It was a butchery to no purpose. It is to be hoped that General Grant will find some wsy of operstirg with lees sacri fice of his men. That rate of expenditure of this precious materia! which might not be fatal to final success in such a disparity of forces as at Yickaburg, will not do when he is contending with Lee's army. The conn, try can furnish the men to put down this re bellion, but it is time to bring military skill Into play, instead of blind slaughter. And it is believed to be possible to military genius to bring Lee's army to battle on fair terms, icstead of drawing it to its strongest and best prepared position, when it- covers all its communications, while we uncover the whole North.

The reoent movement of Sherman's army seems to have beea from the left toward the right, and we understand him to be opera ting on the west, rather than tbe east of city . The rebel dispatches admit that our shells are thrown Into tbo city. We have lost in front of Atlanta ten cannon, and five thous and two hundred and fifty men. Tbe rebel low in killed has been three thouiaad nine hundred and fifty-five; in prisoners, three thousand two hundred Our troops have buried three thousand two hundred and fif ty-five rebels. Their wounded can not numberless than fifteen thousand; making tbe total rebel loss since Hood assumed command mors than twenty thousand which we have reason to believe, is fully one third of his command.

M. After tbo explosion, at an early hour tbia morning, everything be tokened a brilliant victory, but soon after matters assumed a different aspect, part of tbe attacking force having given away, thus exposing the balance to an enfilading fire from both artillery and infantry. The pro gramma was as follows: Tbe mine was to be exploded at 3 A. M. and tbe batteries open at once along the entire line. 'Imme diately after the explosion the 9th Corps was to charge, supported by the 18th and Avers' division of tbe 5tb Cnrps.aod the 3d Division of the 2d Cojps. The greater part of the arrangement was carried out as order ed, although the commencement was later than the hour designated, on account of the fuse giving out twice. Tbe explosion final ly took place S4 precisely forty minutes past 4 the roar of artillery that immediately fo'llowed waa almost deafening. At 5 30 tbe charge was made, and the fort, with a part of tbe line on each side, was carried in a most brilliant style. The 2d Division, which was in the centre, advanced and car ried the second line, a short distance beyond the fort, and here rested, holding their ground with the utmost determination. It wss at this time tbe colored division under command of Brig Gen. White waa pushed forward and ordered to eharge and carry the crest of the hill, which would have decided the contest. The troops ad vanced in good order a far as tbe first line where they received a galling fire which checked them, and although quite a num ber kept on advancing tbe greater portion seemed to become utterly demoralized, part of them taking refuge in the fort, and tbe balance running to the rear as fast as possi ble. They were rallied, and again pushed for ward but without success, the greater part of their officers being killed or wounded. During this time they seemed to be without any one to manage them and finally they fell back to tbe rear out of the range of the enemy's canister and musketry which were plowing through their ranks. Their losses are very heavy particularly in officers, as will be seen by the following figures: 23d U. S., colored, 15 officers killed, and wound ed, 400 men, including the missing; 28th U. S , colored, ll officers and about 150 men killed, wounded and missing; 27th U. S., colored, 6 officers and about 150 men killed, wounded and missing; 29th TJ. S., colored, 8 officers and about 375 men killed, wound ed and missing; 31st U. S., colored, 7 offi cers and about 200 men killed, wounded and misting; 43d U. S., colored, 6 officers and a large number of men killed, wounded and missing; 39th U. S , colored, several officers and about 250 men, killed, wound ed and missing. The loss in the second division of the 9th corps, Gen. Sedlie commanding, was very severe, and is estimated from 1000 to 1200, while many make the figures larger. Among the missing I regret to announce the name of Geo. Bartlett; he succeeded in reaching the Fort with his command bat having ac cidentally broken his cork leg, he was un able to get off the field; be, however, held possession of tbe ground for several hours, and only surrendered when all hopo o. es cape was gone. Some two hundred meD, both black and white, were with him at tbe time, a few of whom managed lo get back to our lines. Nearly all of General Bartlett'a staff were captured at the same time. Colonel Mar shall, commanding the 2d Brigade of this Division, was also taken prisoner, with several of his staff; also Col. Wild of tbe 56th Masachu9etts, reported a prisoner. Colonel Gould, of the 59th Mass., lost a leg; Malor Bruxton, of the 179th Mew York, also lost a leg; Lieut. Colonel Barney, of the 21 Pa, was wounded; Maj. Prascott, 57th Mass., was killed; Lieut. Col. Ross, of tbe 3lat U. S. colored, lost a leg. lhis Di vision bavins been a great deal in advance of tbe rest of the line, held its position for several hours, but was finally compelled to fall back, suffering severely. While doing so the Joss in the first and third Divisions was also severe; the latter have 400 in the hospital.

Sunday, 31 . The Killing of Gibson Mallobt The Pabtt Charged with the Killing Re leased. Our readers are no doubt familiar with the killing of the Hon. Gibson Mallo ry, on the Bardstown pike, last Tuesday Dight, the particulars of which were given ia the Democrat tbe following day. Sub sequently, J. House, of coapany D, Ninth Pensylvaoia cavalry, was arrested, charged with the killing of Mr. Mallory. At tbe time of tbe arrest be did not deny the kil ling, but averred that be was under positive orders from Lieut. Gyrer, who bad com mand of the men. House, after his arrest, was sent to tbe barracks and placed under confinement. A further investigation of tbe case by tbe military authorities developed the following facts, as we have been inform ed by Col. Fairleigh , commander of the post: House, who was under the command of the officer of the guard above named, was sta tioned on the Bardstown pike, about one mile beyond the first toll-gate, with instruc tions to'allow no one to pass. Mr. Mallory and bis son drove up, and were ordered to halt, which they refused to do. The order to halt, was given four or five times before the soldier discharged his musket, inflict upon Mr. Mallory a wound which caused al most Instant death. House was yesterday released from confinement by order of Gen eral Burbridge. Louisville Democrat. Leather Pies. Army pies are so terri bly tough that the soldiers call them leath er pies.

The Richmond Enquirer of Monday con tains the following: Tbe glorious news from Northern Georgia absorbed tha public attention on Saturday and yesterdsy; the city was lively with de lightful excitement, and even the grim sa vans, who affect to see an almost intermi nable war, grew buoyant with hope. The fate of Sbermao, and the war, was liberally discussed, and it wasgeuerally accepted that, should the effect of Hood's initiatory en gagements be sustained and culminate in a decisive victory, no fears, not even doubts, need be entertained as to the result of the campaign io Virginia. Grant, having ex pended tbe force of numbers at his com mand in vain, stragetio force may then be employed by him to about the same pur pose. Tbe following la the official dis patoh of Gen. llood: . Atlanta, July 2210:40 P. M. Han.' Secretary of War: The army shifted its position fronting Peachtfee creek last night, and Stewart's & Cheatham's corps formed the line of bat tle around the oity. Hardee's corps made a night march and attacked the enemy's ex treme left to-day at one o'clock, and drove bim from his works, capturing sixteen pieces of artillery and five stands of colors. Cheatham attacked the enemy at 4 o'clock P. M. with a portion of his commar.d and drove the enemy, captured six pieces of ar tillery. During the engagement we cap tured about 2000 prisoners. Wheeler's cavalry routed the enemy in the neighborhood of Decatur, capturing bis camps. Our loss is not fully ascertained. Major-General Walker killed; Brigadier Generals Smith, Grist and Mercer, wounded Prisoners report McPberson killed. Our troops fought with great gallantry. J. B. Hood, General. THB FSESS DISPATCHES. Atlanta, July 22. About two o'clock this afternoon the enemy attacked our left, under Gen. Stewart, with great vigor. They were received with a galling fire from both artillery and infantry, which caused them to falter, when tbe order was given to charge. Among tbe killed ia Gen. McPberson, who was shot through the heart; Brig-Giles A. Smith and (the Yankee Gen. Hood. Gen. uresham lost a leg. Our troops left their breastworks and charged with great rapidity, driving the en emy from two lines of intrencbments and inflicting great slaughter, capturing a large number of prisoners and 22 pieces of artil lery. General Hardee having passed around tbe enemy's flank, is now in their rear, doing great execution. 6ECOND DISPATCH. Atlanta, July 23d. Gen. Wheeler, last evening, attacked the enemy's left in the neighborhood of Decatur, and drove them back, capturing 500 wagons, with sup plies, and a large number of prisoners. He is till pursuing. There was very little fighting after dark yetterd ay. Two thousand prisoners, including seven ty-five commissioned officers, 25 pieces of artillery and seven stands of colors have beo brought in. The losses on either aide are not yet Known, uurs was severe in omcers. Comparative quiet reigns this morning. There is some little skirmishing on our left EDITORIAL COMHESTd. From the Richmond Examiner, July 25tb. The news of the victory at Atlanta, which the telegraph brought to Richmond oo last Saturday delighted the publio as much as any that has been received during the war; it caused a general joy throughout the city, and will carry the same to all quarters of the country. Gen. Hood has signalized his acceptance of the Army of lennesseo, with a brilliant victory, and justified bis selection by success, the high est evidence of its propriety. The tide has turned, tbe army has faced about, and the strategy of advance takes tbe place over that of retreat. Light breaks from the only dark point in our lines. Atlanta is now felt to bj safe and Georgia wi.l soon be free from the foe. Tbe central army of tbe ConfeJancy has recovered its prestige aud defeated tbe ex ultant enemy. From the Examiner of July 26. The most important news we have is that contained in the following dispatch from uenerel Hood. Atlanta, July 23. 1864. Hon. J. A. Seddon. Secretary of War: la the engagement yesterday we captur ed 18 stands of colors instead of 6, ard 13 guns instead of 22, as previously reported. Brig. Geo. Mercer was not wounded . All is quiet to-day, except a little picket firing and occasional shell thrown into the city. J. B. Hood, General. From this it will be seen that the battle began under such favorable auspices on Friday and contined so successfully, was not resumed on Saturday nor on Sunday. General Hood, in bis first dispatch after the fight, was mistaken as to the number of cannon captured by our troops. This is a small matter. If he bad killed McPber son, and driven Sherman across the Chatta hoochee, we should have been content wittDut taking a gun or a prisoner. As far as we are able to penetrate into the state of affairs, the chief fruits of Friday'a opera tions are, we infer, that we prevented the enemy from enveloping Atlanta from the east. His position west and north of the town is unchanged, or, if ohanged at all, he has pressed nearer tbe oity, It baa been seen from tbe dispatch ha throws shell into it. This is uncomfortable proximity, as fie people of our sister oity of' Petersburg can testity. Thb Moceino) Bird of Resaoa. Tbe Atlanta Appeal relatea tbe following inci dent: In the hottest of the battle of Sunday a shell came screaming through the air from the works io front of our left. It paused above a point where Gen. Johnston and Gen. Polk were standing; whistled like a top above them, and before exploding whistled half a dozen notes as clear as a fife to the dram like rattle of mnsketry . Tbe din bad scarce died away, and tbe fragments fallen to the ground, when the attention of the party was directed to one of the upper boughs of a tall tree, where a mocking-bird bad be begun to intimate tbe whistle of the shell Neither the roar of cannon nor the rain o balls could drive this brave bird from it lofty perch It sat above tbe battle fields like a little god of war, iif blythe tones war bling over the din of arms.

Hailman: Deab Sib To the teachers of tbe Common Schools of Louisville I can only give my owa experi ence. I am nftv vears of aee. and have spent forty-five years of that time in the schoolroom; was educated at me univernjr of Virginia, and at the best preparatory schools in that vicinity. I have been teaching in Maysville since 1832. and In connection with the Maysville Seminaries Principal, since June, 1835. uur scaooi has always had two departments, male and female, in separate rooms, but so located that each is under the immediate supervision of the Principal The ages of the pupils range from twelve to twenty-five. Males and females recite in the same classes, but have their appropriate seats separate from each other: in thia war a wholesome spirit of emulation is awakened, which is never felt a purely male or female school, liut the most ImDortant feature is the moral in fluence which is exerts over the sexes As sociated together as they are from day to day in the same scholastic exercises, tbsy are brought to look upon eacn oioer as mem bers of the same family.engaged in the same reat work of mental and moral improve ment. In a period of Umty years, wua a school varying from eighty to one hundred pupils, about an equal numoer oi eacn boa, I have not vet observed any ill conse quences resulting from their association, but have, from year to year, become more iuwy convinced that no plan is so well calculated to secure correct habits of study, proper discipline, refioed manners.and good morals.

To the Editor of the Boston Courier: My dear Sir Thinking mat a oriel note occasionally from a resident of thia region to the organ of conservative opinion in the North may be of some use, I venture again to trouble you. Tbe black eloud that has been gathered in tbe South, and has caused such desolation there, is gradually, coming nearer to its dea tined position, and will presently envelop in darkness the whole land, unless the peo ple of tbe North awake io time from their foolish dream of conquest, spoliation, and and sectional agrandisement. The negro army of the West, whose headquarters were first, I believe, at Memphis, then at Padu cah, have now been just removed to Louis ville. By plunder, insult and outrage, P dueah, the most flourishing town in West ern Kentucky, has been rendered uninhabit able be people, and indeed a large portion of the place has been wantonly destroyed. Now we suppose the same deluge is to b poured npon Louisville, Lexiogton, and all the remainder of tbe State. You bear much more frequently now than ever before of gnerrilla outrages in this State. Most of these men are persons, heretofore loyal, who, robbed and plundered of all their means of subsistence, their lives threatened, and their families insulted by these black barbarians, under the command of more infamous white men, take to this course under mingled feel ings of revenge and despair. Have the Northern people yet surmised the purpose of tbe Negro army? Have they utterly forgotten tbat the interests and the liberties of tbe whole people of this country are bound up together? The negro armj was not intended to fight tbe Confederates. That class of troops has been kept hereto fore just near enough to actual war to ac custom them to bloodshed and cruelty, while, as far as practicable, ibey are covered bv the white troops from actual danger, it is apparent now that mingled patriotism and Inst of power have thoroughly demonized the abolition party. Tbsir plan obviously is, to precipitate upon the South, by succes sive conscriptions, all the fighting material of the white population who are not aboli tionists, and sacrifice them there; while tbe negro army, as a Janizary corps, is to be employed in tbe Northern and Middle States to coerce passive obedience. I believe tbat these infamous men enter tain very little thought of subjugating the South; but they are insanely joyous at the prospect of subjugating all tbat portion of the Union which is not now in rebellion. By continuirg the contest, upon the policy lately adopted, they expect so to impair the strength of the loyal states, outside of the Aboli ioi party, which takes precious care of itself, that tbe people will be meekly submissive to a rule enforced by their array of black savages. Tbe Conservatives committed a fatal mis- take,twben, after tbe civic victory of 1362, tbey neglected to appeal with all the au thority of the State governments and with tbe prestige of tbat great victory, to the army, to stand firm in the defence of the Constitution against every assault. li it impossible to awaken tbe northern neorjle to a sense of tbe real situation of af faire? The toils are around us here. They will soon be stretched over tne entire coun try. unless the people in those States not yet in actual military occupation arouse to the work before them, and vindicate once more tbe liberty of American citizens. ft7"To make a young lady six fathoms deep in happiness g'-ve her two canary birds, twenty yards ot SUE, a crinoline skirt an ice-cream, several rose-buds, a squeeze of the hand, and tbe promise of a new bon- net. t ana don't men, u win pecause sne can't.
