The result was some damage to property, but no personal injury was sustained. A deserter reports that Grant has issued orders to one or more corps to supply themselves with three days cooked rations, and intimates that some new movement is on foot. It is conjectured that he has an eye to cutting the Southside railroad; but it is hoped that our military authorities are prepared for any move of that sort. It is considered reliable that Grant is receiving reinforcements, as within the last few days transports have been seen coming up the river laden with troops. Appearances indicate that there will soon be a revival of active operations in front of Petersburg. On Friday night the enemy attacked a portion of the picket line and took some prisoners, causing the pickets to fall back. On Saturday morning fifty-nine Yankees were captured; b
you have the military situation. The month of September will likely witness no grand military effort, either on the Virginia or Georgia military chess-board. Grant and Sherman are, meanwhile, not idle. Their camps are busy in preparation; and, backed by the authorities at Washington, they are making ready to deal us hard knoer example, Hood and Lee can both receive in this way valuable and appreciable reinforcements.

The prisoners captured yesterday say Sherman will now reinforce Grant, take Richmond, and finish the rebellion. They also state that one-half of his army will go out of service this month. Our pickets extend six miles beyond Jonesboro' The enemy are closely massed about Atlanta.--There is not the slightest prospect of an early resumption of hostilities.

Scott, McClellan, Burnside, Hooker, Grant, have each successively hurled immense armies upon our capital, and have been beaten back as the sea-girl rock beats back
