Besides the large sums he has expended, he has obtained credit to the extent of $6,000,000! They are calling for a guard at Petersburg against incendiaries. A factory was burned the other night. This is bad. Scully and Lewis, condemned to die as spies, have been pardoned by the President, and are to be sent North. Another dispatch from Gen. Lee, dated 3 1/2 P. M., says the enemy has nearly completed his bridge, and will probably commence crossing this evening or in the morning.
