Major Gtntral Dtx, Ktv York:
Dispatches from Gen. Sheridan have Just
been received. lie reports a victory over
tbe enemy at Trevlllan Station, on the Virginia
Central railroad, a few miles south of Gordons
vllle, where Gen. Lee, a few days ago, reported
a rebel victory. Tho official report Is as fol
lows:
" I have the honor to report to you the ar
rival of my commaod at this point, and also
to report us operations since leaving r-ew Las
tie Ferrv. I crrsied tbe Pamnnkev river on
the 7thinPtant. marching via Avlett's and en
camped on Herring Creek, on tbe morning of
tbe mdj rcsumea mo marcn via roiecat sta
tion, and encampd three miles west of the sta
tion. On tbe tbe Oib, marched through Chltdi
burg and New Market, encamping on the E. N.
. cretk. near Younc's Urldee. On the 10th.
marched via Andrew's Ferrv and Feicman'a
Store, crossing both branches of tbe North
Anna, and encamped at UucbUd's, about three
miles northeast of Trerllllan Station.
Mv Intention was to break tbe railroad at
this station, march through Mechanlcibcre.
cut the Gordoaivllle and Cbarlotteivllle rail
road near Llndsay'a House, and then to march
on Charlctttsvlllei but on arrival at Buchlld'a
House i rouna tne enemy's cavalry in my Ira
mediate front.
"On the morning of tbe 11th Gen. Torbet,
with hla division and Col. Gregg's brigade of
Gen. Gregg's division, attacked the enemy,
and after an obstinate contest, drove him from
successive lines or breantworks, through aa
almost impassable forest, back on frtvllllan
Station.
"In the meantime Gen. Cnstar was ordered,
with his brigade, to proceed bv a countrv road.
so ai to reach tbe station In tbe rear of the
enemy'a cavalry. On hla arrival at thla point
the enemy broke into a complete rttut, leaving
bil dead and nearly all of bis wounded ln our
hands) also, SO officers and 000 men, and 300
horses. These operations occupied the whole
ofthe day,
"At nUbt I encamped'at Trevllllan Station,
and on tbe morning of 'the IStb commenced
destroying the railroad from this point to
Louisa Court House. This wsa thoroughly
done, tics burned and rails rendered unservice
able. Tho destruction of the railroad occu
pled until 3 o'clock of thli day, I directed
Gen. Torbet to advance with hla division, and
Gen. Dav li'a brigade, of Gen. Gregg's division,
la tho direction of Gordonsville, and attack
tbo enemy, who bad concentrated and been re
inforced by Infantrv during the night, and had
also constructed rifle piu at a point five miles
from Gordonsvillo.
" The advance was made, but as the enemy'a
position waa found too slroug to assault, no
general attack was made.
"Onlheextremerlgbtofourllncsaportionof
tho reserve brigade carried the euemy's works
twice, and waa twice driven therefrom by In
fautry. Night closed tbe content, I found, im
examination of the command, that there was
not a sufficiency of ammunition left to con
tlnue tbe engagement tho next day. Trains nr
c trs also came down to where we were engaged
with tbe euemy. The reports of prisoners aud
citizens were that Pickett's old division, or a
portion of it.nas coming to prevent the taklnir
of (.ordonssllle. I, therefore, during the nlgut
and next inornlog, withdrew my command
oer ihe North Anna la Carpenter's Ford,
near Minor's Bridge.
" Iii addition, the animals for tbe two entire
davs In which wo were engiged were without
forage, the surrounding country allordlog
nothing but grazing ofa very Inferior quality,
aod generally at such point a. were Inacces
sible tO UQ.
"The cavalry engagement of the 12th was
by far the most brillUut one of the present
campa'gu. The enemy's loss was very heavy.

Major Central Dtx, rw Yo kt
This evening a dispatch from City Point,
dated al 0 o'clock this morning, reached the

It reports that our forces advanced yesterday
to within abont a mile In front of Petersburg.
where they found tbe enemy occupying a new
line of entrenchments, which, after successive
assault, we failed to carry, but hold and have
entrenched our advanced positions.
From the forces of the enemy within the
enemy'a new line, It is Inferred that Bcaurc-
gara naa oeen reinforced irom iees army.
No report has been received bv the depart

the credit belongs to the lit District of Colum

Destruction of a Ilebel Tram port In
Cliarlcatou Harbor.
The ralmetto Htrald of tho ICth has the fol
lowing account of the lato aiTalr In Charleston
harbori
At daylight on Tuesday mornlntr a n.bel
steamer, supposed to have been carrying sup
plies to Sumter, was discovered fast aground
auoutioree inousanu yaras aistaut. imme
diately our batteries opened on aer. A few
sbota gave us the range, when the solid shot
began to gotbrough her, and thu shell to burst
inaiaeoi uer. i no practice was splendid. Shot
after shot would pass c carthroug her, and then
go bounding and skipping far up tbe harbor.
Some would hit tbe water ibis aide of her and
ricochet, striking beautifully, scattering splin
ters In all directions. Johnson, Blmpklns,
"The Bull or the Woods," Moultrie, andothers
all opened in a general engagement. Gregg
and Cbatfield would bang away at the steamer
aa If disdaining the rebel fire, then suddenly
lend a shell spinning Into Johnson, bursting
right over bead, or tearing up tbe embank
ment fearfully. Wagner, too, was buy show
ing tbe rebs that though she usually preserves
a dignlflcd silence, she Is none the Icbs able tn
give them good work when In the humor.
The firing continued for several boors, and
then slsckeued up. as the tide rose higher and
higher, till the decks of tbe steamer remaining
underwater proved that that spot was to be
bergrae. Iu the afternoun, as tho tide low
ered, exposing her again to view, several more
shots were put Iuto ber. We bad a flue view
of the wreck from the left battery with the aid
of a good glass. This "left battery," formerly
one of the main works engaged In the reduction
of Fort Bu niter, stilt remains, ln a great meas
ure, as It was left by Geu. Glllmore. It will
over be memorable as the scene ol one of thu
greatest achievements of the war and of tnu
century. No casualties whatever occurred on
our side, though some shells burst uncomfort
ably near. One entered an embrasuru where
six men were at woik, kuoeklug the sponge
from tbe band of one man, and throwing dirt
into tbe eyes of another and over all. It was
certainly a narrow escape.

FOUR O'CLOCK. P. M.
TfKlVB FIIOM CI HAST.
There Is nothing Important to-day from Gen.
Grant. Tha last official news, of any Interest,
was received by us on Saturday night, but wo
did not deem It of sufficient Importance (o
Issue It In an Extra, on Sunday, as the mon
ster funeral resulting from tho Arsenal calam
ity took place on that day, and was sufficient
to cast a deep gloom over the wholo commu
nity, without any contribution from us In the
way of announcing a check to even ono of our
divisions.
We only allude to this now, because It was
whispered about yesterday, that the whole of
Burnslde corps was repulsed with great loss on
Friday night, ln attacking a line of the enemy's
works at Petersburg. Such wat not tha fact.
It Is true, however, that the division belonging
to tho Oth corps, lately commanded by Gen.
Crittenden, attacked the enemy's works and
had a most desperate Hgbt, and carried tbem,
but waa subsequently obliged to retire from
them. Shortly afterwards the enemy evacuated
tho same works. A slight reverse like this
must be expectod as among the things occa
sionally Inevitable In a gigantic military move
ment like that now going on against the great
rebel citadel.
The bulletins of the Secretary of War, dated
the IStbi wero Issued ln the New York Sunday
morning papers, and furnished to the regular
subscribers of those papers. Here the Sunday
Chrontclt wltheld the Secretary's bullcllbs
from Its regular morning edition, ln order to
make a few additional pennies out of Us sub
scribers, who were entitled to the news In the
regular edition. This would have been nothing,
however, If the bulletins bad contained Im
portant cheering news Instead ofthe sad Intel
ligence of thy return of Sheridan without hav
ing accor sjllshed tbe full object of his mission,
and tho announcement of the transportation of
Smith's corps from tbe White House to tbe
James river by water, which was published ln
the HxrcBLiCAN about one week ago.
We did not deem such Information of suf
ficient Importance to publish an extra, espe
cially when tho city was shrouded ln mourning.
We did not csro to disturb tho solemn ccro
monies of the day with a mere mercenary
operation. Wo left the transaction of such
venal work to our neighbors. Whenever there
Is important military newa wo shall Issue It
at the earliest moment, at two cents per copy
at the counter, and furnish It by carriers to
our city subscribers without extra chirge.
A SOUND AND KLOO.UK.1T SPKKC1I DV
HON. JOHN StlKHUAN
On Saturday evening last Senator Sherman
made a speech before tho Ohio Club full of
patriotism and force. The honorable Senator
took his stand squarely where, ln our judg
ment, all true friends of the country should
stand In thla hour. After stating truly tho
lssuo In regard to t jo rebellion, he said i
"I will not Insult yoa by suggesting a doubt
as to where you will bo fouod ln snch a con
test. We are for Lincoln and Johnson, ap
plause, first, last, and all tbe time, with heart
and soul, without exception or reservation,
simply becanse they are for tho Union, for tho
war, for sustaining the army, and for w hipping
rebels wherever they show themselves. We are
not for Fremont, because we look upon him as
tbe representative ofa dlssatlsScd faction who
have not patriotism enough to submit to tho
popular w 1)1 when the safety of tbe country Is
Involved. We are not for the nominees of tbo
Chicago Convention, because we know the
ruung spirits oi mat convention are tbo very
men who encouraged tho rebela to revolt. They
may bait their hook with a peaco man, or a
war man, or ono of cjch kind, but wo know
that If they are successful tbe blood of our pa
triot heroes will have becu shed lu vain, and
disunion and a shameful peace will bo the re
suit."
Mr. Sherman'a speech would occupy a
column and a half ln our paper, and Is full of
good things, but tho above paragraph states
tbo entire question before tho Union-loving
