expected attack. [correspondence of the Associated Press.] Fortress Monroe, July 3d. --The steamer Cataline, which was recently employed as a transport between Fortress Monroe and Newport News, was burned last evening. The vessel is a total loss, the crew having barely time to escapes. The Cataline formerly belonged to the Bridgeport line, was owned by Messrs. Freeman & Co., and insured for $25,000. She had a three months contract with the Government at $10,000 per month. Captain Gorden, of the Cumberland, gallantly reserved the rifled cannon from the burning vessel. Col. Allen's regiment to-day went up to Newport News Point. Otherwise, there is no military movement of importance to report. The Fun-Scat uaker City, came in from the Capes to-day, but reports nothing new.

Latest from England. Mr. Gorden against Intervention — the London Times and the Democratic party, and on Gen. Butler and Mrs. Phillips. &c. Mr. Cobden has addressed his constituents at Rochdale. He spoke at length on the prevailing distress at Lancashire. He regarded that distress as a national question, and if public and private aid proved insufficient to relieve it, Parliament would have to make provision for it. He then referred to the American war, and said that it would be a waste of time for foreigners to attempt to influence the combatants. To interfere in the war, or to recognize the South, would do more harm than good, and fall to bring forward cotton. As to how the contest was going to end, he confessed his inability to form any opinion but if compelled to make a guess, he would not make the same guess, that Earl Russell and Mr. Gladstone did. He did not believe that if the war should soon be brought to a termination it would end in the separation of the N

S. succeeded in sending some of his couriers through the enemy's lines, thereby enabling him to apprise. Gen. Lee of his position and what was transpiring around him. At early dawn the next morning, the 14th instant, Gen. Ewell moved forward with his command and attacked this corps and soon repulsed it. Gen Stuart also had a pretty sharp fight with the enemy. Gen. Gorden, with great bravery, led his old regiment, the 1st N. C., and captured a whole regiment of infantry; but a very superior force of the enemy arriving at this juncture, he was compelled to release it. In this charge, which has scarcely a parallel for gallantry and for the handsome manner in which it was executed, Gen. G. had the heel of one of his boots shot away, and a spent ball struck him a hard blow on the side of his nose. Col. Ruffin fell mortally wounded. He was a fine officer,
