GRANT'S ADVANCE. the situation. Parties from the front say that at noon yes terday Grant was ?? thirty-five miles from Richmond. and all was well." HU rapid change of base has considerably bothered shippers of army goods here, who, loading for Belle Plain, find the occupation of that lately busy locality completely gone, and the guard troops lately there gone to Port Royal "or the Lord knows where," to establish he new base of supplies. There are still a number of sick and wonn led at Fredericksburg, an J as soon as they are re moved that place will also lose its importance quite as suddenly as Belle Plain has. The three gunboats which moved up the Rappahannock a few days ago, are still at the Fredericksburg wharf, and a number of trans ports were there yesterday loading with sick and wounded. Some of the engines and roll ng stock of the railroad has already been re moved from Fredericksburg. The guerrillas attacked a train on Monday moving from Fredericksburg to Belle Plain, bnt the rear guard, after a sharp skirmish, drove them off and succeeded in captntlng seventeen of them. Skirmishes with the guer rillas occur daily at different points about Fredericksburg ever since our army has com menced Its forward movement. Un Monday night a guerrilla camp near Hartwood, northwest of Fredericksburg, was avacked by a detaohment of our cavalry, and 40 horses, captured hereto tore from our wagon and ambulance trains, were recaptured and brought off. Some of the trophies of Grant's new advance upon Richmond have arrived here. The steamer Wawasset, which arrived here last night, brought up about 100 contrabands, con puling of mu. women and children. These contrabands are from the vicinity of Bowling Green andGuiney's Station, and brought with them a large quantity of bod clothing and other housekeeping articles. Oflloiul War Bulletin. ISPATtH FROM GENERAL GRANT. EVERYTHING FAVORABLE. A TIOIENT ATTACK BV TIIE ENEMY RK rULSKD. WITH LOSS TO THEM IN KILLED. WOUNDED. AND PRISONERS. THE SLAUGHTER OF THE ENEMY VERY GREAT. LEE REPORTED FALLING BACK ON RICH MOND. Wa*hi?gtor, May 21?10.30 P. M. To Major Oeittral Dix, Aero York: A despatch from General Grant, dated at 11 o'clock last night, states that the army moved from its position to the North Anna, following cloeely Lee's army. The 5th and 6th corps marched by way of Harris* Store to Jericho Ford, and the 5th corps succeeded in effecting a crossing and getting a position without much opposition. Shortly after, however, they were violently attacked and handsomely repulsed the attack. Ths assault was without much loss to us. We captured some prisoners. Everything looks exceedingly favorable to us. Another despatch, giving in detail the move ments of our corps, and speaking of the rebel assault on Warren's position, says he was at tacked with great vehemensy. I have never heard more rapid or massive firing, either of artillery or musketry The attack resulted In a destructive repulse to theenemy.

Warren also captured sotm1 offifial papers, amongst them an order calling out all boys .evenieen years of ag.- to garrison Richmond, imbalance men and musicians are also ordered I the ranks. Sheridan was this morning at Dunkirk, and will be at Milford to-night. No despatches have been received to-day tam General Sherman, and none are expected tor several days Despatches from General Butler have been received to day, relating chiefly to the respec tive forces. Admiral Lee. in a telegram, dated the 22d, to the Secretary of the Navy, states that last night (Saturday* the enemy attacked the army, and were handsomely repulsed. A despatch from Major General Canby, dated tte ISth iastan', at the mouth of Red River, states thatGneral Banks' troops had arrived at Semmesport, yesterday, and will reach Mor gacza tc-day. The army is in better condition than was expected, and will soon be ready to resume oflensi\e operations. Epwiw m. Stakton, Secretary of War.

A despatch from the Army of tte ratomac, dated G uiney's Station, May 22d, sa> * ? The advance of the army, under Hancoc*, arrived at Milford yesterday, and met a force of the ecemv there, said to be 13,000 strong and ! drove them through the town, and followed in pursuit. Onr loss is rot Known. An attack was made on headquarters' train, near Guiney's Station, yesterday afternoon. The 114th Pennsylvania Zouaves, with the6?th Pennsylvania, formed in line and drove the rebels?the 9th Virginia-across the bridge. One of the 6&th was killed, and two or three wounded. Several prisoners were captured. 10 o'clock p. m.?Gen. Hancock is seven miles south of Bowling Green, and occupies the bridge across the Mattapony. Our cavalry had a good deal of lighting, but drove the en emy all the time. Our position is now deemed important, and Richmond is in greater danger than ever. further particulars or THE advance of grant. Quinsy's Station, May 21.?The 2d corps, by a rapid flank march, reached Bowling Green to-day. About dark, Friday evening, the column started from their entrenchments, and moved along the old telegraph road, past this station to Bowling Green. Warren followed with the 5th corps. The two commands were separated" in the march. A gap of six or eight miles was discovered to exist between our lines at this point. Generals Grant and Meade, and their respective staffs and body guards, found a small force of the enemy here. The 111th Pennsylvania (Oollis' Zouaves) doing provost duty at army head quarters, were neither surprised nor intimi dated. After several volleys the Rebels re tired. Our extreme right is now resting near the fpot which two days ago held our centre?the Anderson House. Burnside is here, and Wright, with the 6th corps, joins him on the left. Cannonading can be heard from that lo cality, and the report is that the 0th, and a por tion of the t>th corpe, are engaged. Hancock is on the extreme left, and Warren in the centre. These swinging movements of our corps cause the rebels to glide after us in th^ same direction. People here say their troops nav? all left for Hanover Junction. Many of them started three days ago. Panic prevadea all hearts. The hegira among the owners of plan tations is universal. The cavalry corps train, in charge of Captain Tallman, moved from Fredricksburg eailyin the morning. Guerillas abounded. The train was guarded by one hundred and fifty men. lit-re was a glorious opportunity for the hunery rebels; but they knew not of it. Many of the rebels captured along the road belong to the !>th Virginia cavalry. These men are natives of this section of the country, and always dis mounted in exigencies like the present, to act as guerillas and harrass our advance. We still Jront towards Richmond. The men are hopeful and eager. R H. McGregor. The Tnrnfng of Lee's Right Flank. [Correspondence New York Times.] GriNKY's Station, Saturday, May 21, 7 p. m?The Army of the Potomac is again on the ' march towards Richmond. During the night, Hancock's Corps, which had held the left of our lines in front of Spottsylvania Court HcUse, took up its march, moving on the road parallel with the Ny river. Early this morn ing.it reached Guiney's Station, on the Fred ericksburg and Richmond railroad,* twelve , roi'ea due south of Fredericksburg. Thence it pushed onward, following the railroad, and to-night finds the bead of Hancock's colnmnat Bowling Green, eighteen miles south of Fred ericksburg. The other corps have been to day ? following the same general line, and the 5th is now passing the point at which this despatch is dated. Voti will observe from these indica tions that the Commanding General has effected a turning movement on the right of Lee, who is now hastily falling back to take np a fresh defensive position. 1( is expected that the next stand wiil be on the South Anna river, although he may endeavor to hit us while moving by the flank, just as he did when outflanked in his lines on the Rapidan. Heavy firing, in fact, is this moment heard across th? Ny, where one of our columns is moving. A mile oo?tb by west of Qninsy'a Station is the point of continence of the Po and Ny rivers, and at this point the stream is crossed by Guiney's bridge, which is in our possession. The river south of the junction of the Po and Ny is called by the inhabitants of the country the ?* Mattapony," although the Mat and Ta, its other tvo affluents, do not enter it till we reach a point a dozen miles south of thi*. Our army is now all gone from the front it has held before Spottsylvania Court-House for the pest two weeks, and the lines of Spottsyl vania pass into history. They are associated with fighting as desperate as was ever made by embattled foes, and by the greatest valor on the part of both armies. Its woods sepulchre thousands of the bodies of brave men, perished in the great cause for w hlch this army marches, and fights, and suffers. You will notice by the map that our pressnt front, while it puts us in a very advantageous position in regard to the enemy, at the same time perfectly covers our communications, which are Dy way of Fredericksburg and y quia Creek. The railroad will soon be open from A quia Creek to Fredericksburg, and will doubtless be put in order south of that Doint as we advance. There are also several I a> pointe of water commonitl.in by the | Rappahaunock, as at Pert Royal, Jcc., which. , will probably be need. i 1 should misrepresent the conviction of the ' "... I .4.

TIIEY ARE SHELLED OFF BY OUR GUN 10ATS, THE TORPEDOES AND OBSTRUCTIONS IN THE RAPPAHANNOCK. Atone o'clock to-day the hospital steamer Connecticut arrived here from Tappihannock, ?with six hundred wounded on board, brought down from Fredericksburg by the steamers Keyport and Lizzie Haker, under convoy of several gunboats. This precaution is found necessary lrom the fact tbat rebel cavalry and guerrillas line the shore* of the Rappahannock. Whi.e the Connecticut was taking on the t^onnded from the Keyport and Baker, a body of rebel cavaliy made their appearance at Tappahannock. but the gnnboate brought their guns to bear upon the enemy, and they ske daddled, The gunboats 8re yet engaged in removing torpedoes and other obstructions found in the Rappahannock.- The Keyportrunning against one of these obstructions on her downward trip, stove in her wheel-house, and sprung a le?k. but not sufficiently to disable her. The Connecticut had on board one hun dred and fifteen wounded officers, among whom were Col. C J. Powers, 108th Ne w York; Col. C. V. Deland, 1st Michigan; Col. C Ewing, 4th New Jersey; Col. S. S. Carroll, 8th Ohio; Col^R. Lewie, 5th Vermont; Col. S. W. Wist, 17th Maine; Col. S. Connor, 19th Maine; Lieut. Col. W. L. Curry, 106th Pennsylvania; Lient. Col. S. A. Moore, 14th Connecticut; Lt Col. F. Sawyer, 8th Ohio; and Lieut. Col. W* DeCacy, 164th New York. Yesterday evening at 4 o'clock, there were about 0,0(0 wounded remaining at Fredericks burg, but aa there was a large number of trans ports in readiness, it was thought they would all be removed by this evening, when the town would probably be evacuated, we having no present use for it in consequence of Grant having established his new base of supplies lower down the river in connection with his advance upon Richmond. "PRIVATK ADVM IiSr The "private advices" of a city cotemporary to the effect "that Jeff. Davis and his Cabinet left Richmond some days ago, tearing that in the approaching anaconda embrace of Orant they might be gobbled up,"' has not been con firmed by any public advices thus far, and is conceded to be news "exclusively'^ belonging to that paper. The averment by the same piper that Grant is pursuing Lee "beyond the South Anna,'< though a thing likely to happen, is not be lieved to be a fact accomplished, and it is rot doubted but that some hard fighting wil1 be required as a preliminary. We advise the public to keep cool and wait patiently. Grant will reach Richmond, but not by a skip, hop and jump, and we know that he anticipates some of the hardest flghtir.g of the war before the goal is attained. AN AFFECTING SCENE. Mr. and Mr,. ^Tdl,b- S,!"! of Michigan, who bad two 008 Horace iind Coradin?in the 7th Michigan regiment, ^ume to this city a day or two ago in search of Hor. ace, who they learned had been wounded in the battle at the Wilderness, and had been brought to this city. Failing to find him in hospital, they yesterday evening vv'i'ed the 6th street wharf. A tew moments afterwards the steamer Jefferson steamed up to the o'ock, and standing near the bow of the boat was th? locked-for son, badly wounded, his right arm having been shot off'above the elbow. As soon as the plank was thrown from the boat to the Wbarf, Mrs. Rnwrtilh sprang un board the steamer, and throwing ber arms around her son's neck burs t into a flood of tears, with her head bent upon hissboulaer. Ifor a few seconds there was an affecting silence, which the fond . mother broke by saying,-"Horace, where is your brother Coradin I" Horace, pointing to a rough wooden box by his side replied, "There, mo. ther, there is Coradin!" The afflicted mother threw herself upon her deceased son's coffin, sobbing aloud in an agony of grief, while the father and wounded son stood by with bowed heads. The scene was truly a Heart-rending one, and lt better be imagined than de uniWed. Many of the bystanders were com pelled to turn aside, while silent tears could be seen stealing down the cheeks of all. Several kind-hearted ladies present did all in their power to comfort the afflicted mother, but it was long belore she could be Induced to leave the side of her deceased son. CHANGE OF POSITION. The infantry froops lately upon the outer line of the defences of Washington, night be fore last commenced to contract their lines under orders irom headquarters in this city. They #ought away all Government property and lelt the block houses about Fairfax Court House, and beyond, standing; there being no apprehension of any large rebel force taking possession of them. No guerrillas have been "J seen in that beigbborhood for some days. The 147th P. V., 4th Delaware, and 2d D. C Infantry, who were doing guard duty alon.< the roads lrom Fairfax to Hull Run were the infantry withdrawn?the 157th P. V. and 4th Delaware, going (it is supposed,) to join Grant's army, and the 2d D. C. remaining at Spring field, seven miles beyond Alexandriarfor guard duty. A brigade of cavalry, under command of Col. Lowell, of a Massachusetts regimen', are still on duty in that vicinity and will carefully patrol the country and watch operations there. WOUNDED OFFICERS. Up to the present time about one thousand commissioned officers, (of all grades,) wound ed in the late battles, have been reported to the Medical Directer'sOffice. THE NIGHT ASSAULT UPON GEN.

A message was received from the Hou*e, announcing its non-concurrence in som? of the Senate amendments to the National Bauk bill, and on Mr Feseenden's motion, the S n ite adhered and asked for a Committee of Confer ence. Mr. L(^e, of Kansas, submitted a resolution that the Committee on Indian Affttrs b>* re quested to consider the question ot conti-'-atiug the reserves of all Indian tribes who nr?cr h?>t> beta in Wius mainst Uovtfuatut, and providing home? for the loyal members of such triNs, and to report by bill or otherwise. Mr Spragne offeredthe following : Wheieas large corps have been and are now h- tog ortanized in the military service or the Unltfd States without the advice and consent of the Senate in the appoin'tnent and commis sicning the officers : Be it therefore ketclvtd, Tnst the Committee on Military Aff'irs be and they hereby are directed to in. quire into the expediency'ot reporting a bill to the Sena'te requiring that all appointments in the service ator- said, heretofore ic*de,or which r ay ber? after he made, shall have the ad rice and cdBWDt of the innate, as provid-d by law in other cases, and that the commissions of all officers not receiving the advice and consent of the Senate to their nomination willeqpire with the pres-nt session of Congress. In reply to an inquiry by Mr. Wilson in re gard to the resolution, Mr. Sprague said the government was organizing a large n?gro and invalid force and appointing officers to it with out the advice and consent of the Senate. This he thought should not be. The resolution was passed. Mr. Morgan, from the Committee on Military All air?, reported back the bill to prohibit the discharge of persons from liability to military dntv by reason of the payment of money, &c., With amendment, consisting of the following additional sections: Sec. 2. That nothing in the act approved February 24, 1864, amending the act approved March 3,*IM>3, for enrolling and calling out the national forces, shall be constrned to repeal that part of the said act approved March 3, 1HK1, which requires that the hoard of Enroll mt nt, in making drafts, shall (>mtke a draft of tf e required number and fifty per cent, in ad : tiirion. Sec. 3.

Mr. Wade reported a bill to amend an act to enable the people of Colorado to adopt a State government; and it was passed to a second reading. Mr. Foster. from the Committee on Pensions, reported a bill giving to the widow of Solomon Poffmar, who was shot and killed in Carroll county, Iowa, on the 14thof MarcbflSfM, while in the performance of his uty as deputy pro. vost marshal, a pension of JUS per month' He cub? Mr Morrill, of Vermont, from the Committee of Conference on the disagreeing iir.enbmtnts to the armv bill, made a report tbereon in relation to the pay of colored troop*. The report makes a distinction in favor of those who were promised pay equal to the whites, leaving other similar questions to be determined according to th?* law. Mr. Stevens, of Pa , opposed the report. He said lhat on a previous occasion the House passed, by an overwhelming vote, a proviso that all free colored men shall receive the ?'nil pay of white m*ii. The committee of confer - en. e have discarded this instruction, and have adopted the Senate's amendment with an amendment. Members of this House should not dodge tne question. He would prefer losing the bill to abandoning the principle to fully pay those men for services rendered in the XTrion army. Mr Spalding: advocated the paving of all colored soldiers the same as white men. with out distinction as to the time of entering the tervice Mr. Garfield wa? a?ain-?t paying menmon?y which they had norltbt to expect. It would he e gratuity to five ro black men what would not he given 'o white men. Other gentleme- engaged in the debate: among th?-m Mr. Thayer, of Pa., who claimed simple justice to #11 < o'ored troops alike. The disenssien was fur her continued. The points involved being whether the colored troops who entered the service prior to the 1st of January last should receive the same pay as white toldiers; or whether the provision should not be extended to all colored troops alike. The House rejected the report,and asked an other Committee of Coherence. Th& Keciprocity bill was considered. LOCAL NEWS.

The Guardians, Teachers and children, assembled ;it tbe school house and mar bed in procession to the grove, accompanied by With er'* Brass Band. Three May Queens one from each school, were crowned, the <?remo nies being very inteiesting. The remainder of the day was passed in juvenile sports, and in tbe enjoyment of the rich supply of retresh. ments provided."
