a dispatch from City Point, dated at nine o'clock this morning, reached the Department. It reports that our forces advanced yesterday to within about a mile in front of Petersburg, where they found the enemy occupying a new line of entrenchments, which, after successive assaults, we failed to carry, but hold, and have entrenched our advanced positions. From the forces of the enemy within the enemy's new line, it is inferred that Beauregard has been reinforced from Lee's army. No report has been received by the department concerning the casualties of our army in its operations since crossing the James river, except the death of Major Morton, mentioned yesterday. General Sherman reports to-day that the enemy gave way last night, in the midst of darkness and storm. The whole army is now in pursuit as far as Chattahoochee. I start at once for Marietta. No military intelligence from any other quarter has been received to-day. Edwin M Stanton, Secretary of War.
