Monday, June 6--8 A. M.
No battle yesterday, but constant firing across from one line of works to the other as soon as any portion of a man's body could be seen. The casualties during the day, all from sharp-shooters and intermittent artillery, are not less than four hundred. To these must be added between one hundred and two hundred during the night.

A little after eight o'clock a furious blast rang a fierce, discordant metre from the left, where lay Hancock's corps. Judging by the powder burned, it was more than a usually desperate night assault. Soon the following despatch is received:

Half-past 8 O'clock, P. M.--They at first attacked Wright, but are now rushing down upon me. Apparently no damage.
