From Petersburg.

Petersburg, Aug. 4.
--This being Lincoln's fasting, humiliation and prayer day, the Yankees have not fired a gun.

The enemy are so near in Gracie's front that the pickets on both sides have used hand grenades.

Captain V. J. Girardey, Mahone's A. A. G., was yesterday promoted by the President to the temporary rank of Brigadier General, and assigned to the command of Wright's Georgia brigade.
