Tbe Situation Before Richmond.
The ominous silence that followed the dis
patches bringing intelligence of the operations
ill front of Kichmond down to Saturday night
gave rise to the most painful and oppressive
apprehensions in the public mind. It was
feared that in advancing his left and center
and turning the White Oak Swamps while
withdrawing nis rigtit to tbe soutn side of the
Chickahominv, Gen. AlcClel'.an had been
unable to open communication with his new
base of operations, and would thus be cut off
from his supplies and reinforcements.
The first dispatches received yesterday an
nouncmg the retreat of the army seventeen
miles, the capture of hi? siege guns, and the
abandonment of many sick and wounded,
while they assured U3 of the safety of his
communications, caused general depression
and aroused the gravest apprehension lest the
details should bring intelligence of appalling
disasters and the complete discomfiture, rout
and annihilation of the federal army. Hap
pily, mere is nottang in tne later dispatches,
bringing intelligence down to 9 o'clock on
Tuesday evening, to confirm our fears, but
much' that is gratifying in its character. The
retreat appears to have been conducted with
perfect order; but one siege gun was left
behind, and that because it had broken down ;
the Bupply train came safely into camp, and
reinforcements and suoDlies were ranldiv
arriving by river. Oen. McClellan has estab
lished his headquarters at Berkley's Bar,
or within fifteen miles of Richmond bv direct
line, if we do not mistake the locality.
The two principal engagements were fought
on J naay ana jaonaav, tne rebels attacking
in each with overwhelming numbers. They
were repulsed in the engagement of Friday,
and failed in their object of their attack, which
was to cut up and annihilate the right wins
before they could cross t : f' -ahominy. It
being found impossible C 1 the advance
position on tho left and 4.1 -vrta the force
at his command, the whv.v. 1. wing, under
Gens. Beintzelman, Keys and fiumner fell
back along the line of the railroad and Wil
liamsburg road, where, striking the common
road leading directly south irom Meadow
Station, they met the right wing, which had
crossed the Chickahominy by the military
bridge, (near the mouth of Beaver Dam
creek,) and two and a half miles north of
-Meadow Station, and turning southward by
the road, crossed the White Oak Swamp, leav
ing it on their. right, and debouched on the
Hew Market or Long Bridge road, and took
up (lieu- present posiuon, me ieit resting upon
the James river, and the right extendinff
nortiward toward White Oak Swamp, and
holding the road by which the retreat had
bee made. 1 , - -
The rebels crossed the Chickahominv on
Sunday in great force, on the line of our re-
Heat, but not following up till Monday, when
a simultaneous attack was made upon the
right and left, the attacking force on the left
coming direct trom Kicnmond along the Hew
Market and Central roads, attacking at four
points, and being repulsed after a terrible
struggle, in which both sides lost heavily. It
was in this battle that the gunboats were first
brought into action. .
The enemy finding it impossible to force a
passage oeiween tne text and tne river in
which, had they succeeded, they wonld have
mevitaoiy cut on tne supplies and communica
tions of McClellan retired in confusion. The
battle was renewed on Tuesday, and, though,
we are without details it is probable that it was
upon the ground fought over the previous day,

Our losses in the six days' fighting is esli

is not improbable that they will reach the lt

correspondent of the Courier des EtaU TJnis
states that the first of the consistories held by
Pius IX. was marked by an unexpected scene.
The Pcpe opened the consistory by an allocu-
tion in which he treated of tribulations and
persecutions and times of trial. As he is very
sensitive, his emotion became so strong that
,,toars rolled from his eyes, and he burst into
".'.sobs. All the Bishops wept with him, and,
. Surrounding him, protested their devotion to

manor born, or adopted, come forward and register
your names on the solitudes of time, as a beacon light
to unborn millions, that we stand as Leonides at
Thermopylae to guard against rebellion, that force
may not usurp the place of law ; that one man's pro

the common hand of society be not broken ; that ar
tifice and fraud may not prevail over innocence and
simplicity ; that all things may rest in peace under the
protection of the old Star-Spangled Banner, and the

that the weakest among the people may find sanctuary
in the public authority, under the direction of old Un
