his hand. At length Grant seemed to grow weary of this kind of work, and ordered an assault to be made. His infantry came up to the work in handsome style, and yet they seemed to have no stomach for the fight; for three separate assaults upon Anderson's corps (late Longstreet's) were repulsed by his skirmishers and sharpshooters alone. The result was not dissimilar in front of Ewell. The heavy masses of the enemy were pushed back with the case with which one puts a drunken man away from him. The Confederates fought behind field works thrown up hurriedly, and they appeared to relish the run amazingly. The last assault made upon Anderson's position was late in the and was headed by a regiment of the old United States army. The enemy succeeded after a hard struggle in gaining a salient shale occupied, I am told by Gress's brigade, but of who cleared the entrenchments not one lived to return; they were all either killed or taken. They met with a temporary success also in front of
Court on Monday, Judge Giles passed a decree of condemnation, forfeiture, and sale of all the right, title, interest, and estate, both at law and equity, of Joseph R. Anderson, late of Alleghany county, Md., now an officer in the rebel army, in the sundry lands and tenements in Alleghany county, Md., during the life of said AndersAnderson. On the trial of the case it was shown that said Anderson, since the breaking out of the rebellion, had become interested in and conducted the Tredegar Iron Works, at Richmond, from which there had been supplied to the rebel army cannon, shell, and other munitions of war in great quantities. The lands condemned contain 49,146Anderson, since the breaking out of the rebellion, had become interested in and conducted the Tredegar Iron Works, at Richmond, from which there had been supplied to the rebel army cannon, shell, and other munitions of war in great quantities. The lands condemned contain 49,146 acres. The Baltimore American says: There seems to be no end to the effects of the disaster to the Red River expedition. The rebels are using the cannon they captured on the river below Alexandria, and have succeeded in destroying two transports and two of our small gunboats. Gen Banks was still at Alexandria.
olice Arrests. --Florence Reives, a good looking girl of bad repute, was arrested and committed to the cage Saturday night, charged with stealing a gold breastpin, one hat, and an undershirt, vained at $2,000, belonging to Ann M. Myers. Patrick, slave of Fanny Jones, arrested on the charge of stealing a trunk of clothing, valued at $3,000, from Thomas Boyd, was locked up in the cage yesterday morning. On Saturday night the police overhauled a negro named William, slave of Joseph R. Anderson, out on the streets after hours without a pass. The evasive answers given by William led the officers of the law to believe he was connected with some of the depredations which have been committed in the city, and he was thereupon committed to the upper station house. Barney Tracey was arrested by officer Adams yesterday afternoon, charged with assaulting and beating Lewis Antelotti. He was subsequently balled to appear before the Mayor this morning. A man named Austin Conl
Heavy Robbery. --The lumber house on the line of the basin bank, which has been used for some time back by Messrs. Joseph R. Anderson & Co. as a place of deposit for provisions intended for the workmen at the Tredegar Iron Works, was forcibly entered by thieves on Saturday night and robbed of fifty-odd pieces of bacon. In the vicinity of this building there are said to be constantly on hand six or eight private watchmen, and the fact that the thieves succeeded in entering the building, ascending to the second story, and removing therefrom so large a quantity of bacon, which must have required time and conveyance to carry it in, does not speak well for their vigilance.
From Gen. Lee's army. Battle-field near Gaines's Mill June 7-5 P. M. --My telegram last night should have read Early followed the enemy two miles, and not ten. After going this far, and finding the enemy entrenched behind Totopotomy Creek, with the swamp in their front, Early did not go further.--The condition of affairs on the left remains unchanged to-day. The enemy is still in front of Hill and Anderson, but is reported moving to-night. Last evening Grant sent another flag of truce to Gen. Lee, asking permission to bury his dead. This was granted, and the time set from 7 to 10 o'clock last night.--Grant did not get the answer in time, and so the dead are not buried. Grant sent to Gen. Lee another flag of truce this morning, for what purpose has not transpired. There has been some picket and battery firing to-day.
Mayor's Court. --The following is a summary of the cases before the Mayor yesterday morning: For some time back large quantities of sails and spikes have been stolen from the foundry of Messrs. Joseph R. Anderson & Co., but, notwithstanding the fact that a strict watch has been kept, no clue was obtained until within the past few days of the perpetrator of the theft. On Monday last, however, suspicion was directed towards a workman at the place, named John Taylor, and on Tuesday and Wednesday he was discovered in the very act of carrying them off. The case was brought before the Mayor yesterday morning, when the following facts were elicited: Thomas H. Cary, an employee at the nail works, missed on Thursday last, from a large number of kegs filled with nails, one keg, but soon after found it stowed away very carefully among some empty barrels. Suspecting that it had been placed there by some one who designed taking it away as soon as a convenient opportunity presented itse

Anderson & Co.'s tannery, took away the leather and left it at the house of a Mrs. Whalen, promising her half for keeping it for him. Meyer claims that the leather did not belong to Anderson & Co., but was some which he had been requested to tan for a lady of his acquaintance. The two Williams, slaves of Samuel Fauntleroy and A. F. Gooch, charged with entering in the night time the house of Mrs. Mary Harris, and stealing therefrom two bombazine dresses, and whose case has been put off half a dozen times, was yesterday disposed of by referring the matter to the Hustings Court.
