Thf Enemy Crossing the South Anna?The Union Forces in Close Pursuit-Firing Heard at Port Royal? Successful Cavalry Expedition. [Correspondence of the Associated Press.j Headquarters, Army of thb Potomac, May 23.?The advance of the *rmy reached the North Anna yesterday forenoon, the 5th corps srrivipg by the telegraph road from Guiney's Station, along which they had followed the en emy for several miles, skirmishing at dffereit points, and capturing a number of prisoners. Eweirs corps were in the rear of 'he retreat ing foo, and when they got to the North Anna they took position behind earthworks on both sides of ihe river. The 2d corps bnviug had the advance on the Bowling ()re?n road, re mained at Milford on the 22d, and at 1 p. m. ytsterday came up and took position on the left of the 2d corps, reaching the railroad. On examination it was found the enemy held a strong position ou the south bank of the river, with their advance on a peninsula formed by a small stream, which emptied into the river near the railroad crossing. Barlow's division occupied the right of the railroad, Birney in front of he peninsula, and Gibbon on the rieht, whi!? the 5th corps were on the road leading to the ford, a mile to the right. Skirmishing in front of Birney commenced about2 p. m., and at 4 the batteries got to work and (-helled the enemy, while Bimey's division were ordered to charge and carry the worn?, and, it possible, get po>sest-lou of the bridges across the river. The charge was made in splendid style, and, although met with a shower of bullets from the rifle pits, as well as shells lrom the batteries on the opposite side of the river, our men never halted until the enemy were driven across the bridge, and our guns placed so as to command it. Some of the men even went half-way across, and one was seen with a rebel flag, who was lorced to throw it into the river to prevent its recapture. The highest praise was given to the division and its General by General Han cock, for the gallant manner in which it stormed and carried this strong position. The contest continued until after dark, each pariy maintaining their line. Our loss in this action was about 250 in killed and wounded. The loss of the enemy was full as heavy as our own, and we took a number of prisoners. About 5 p. m. Gen. Warren effected a cross ing, and, taking a position on the south bank, threw up some breastworks. Soon after, he was attacked by a large force of rebels, wi:oji he diove back with heavy loss, their dead and wounded lying thick on the ground in fr<>nt of our lines after they retreated. Our loss here was upwards of 100 In killed and wounded. About dark Gen. Burnside's corps caire up and took position between Hancock and War. ren, and made preparations to cross. Every body lelt in good spirits and confident of a vie tory on the coming day. May 21.?The army advanced at an early hour thia moinii g, but the enemy were found to have fallen hack during the night, and the skirmish line was captured after the first round. It was suspected that this might be a ruse, and caution was exercised as the troops advanced. Skirmishing took place at several points, but the 2d corps had met no torce of the enemy up to 2 p.m., at which time yonr correspondent left the front. General Warren had advanced some two or three miles, the enemy in his front seeming determined to dispute his advance, although probably falling back 3 p. m.?A messenger who left the front at 6 o'clock this afternoon reports the enemy cross ing the South Anna, with our troops in close pursuit. Upwards of six hundred prisoners have been brought in simce yesterday, and hourly arriving.

Two gunboats went down ihe livtr last night, and it Is thonghr rhey may have been attacked, in the hope of sinking them. An orderly of General Lee was brought into headquarters to-dar, on ?Bom was !ot*nd a dispatch to General Ewcll from General r^e, orders him to xa.Il back rapidly to the defenses of Richmond A lieutenant taken two days a?o said his brigade had been at Plymouth and at Drury's Bluff, and alter lighting Butler was sent at once to join Lee's army in front of Grant. The colonel made a speech on Saturday evening, as soon as they arrived, telling them they must reach Richmond by Monday at 10 a. m , or the "damned Yanks*' would be there before them. This afternoon a detachment from the cav alry expedition, onder Sheridan, arrived at headquarters, announcing the safe return of the command across the Pamnnkey last night, and that they wonld arrive to-night. Gen. Custar's division cut the railroad twelve miles below Hanover Junction on tne 21st, burning two bridges, and tearing np a mile of the track. He encountered a. body of the rebel cavalry be hind barricades, but could not induce them to come out and attack him. The party had to build a bridge across the Pamunkey. at the White House, which they did in twenty-four hours. The entire command passed safely over it. The horses of the expedition are prettv well exhausted, but a few days rest and feed upo<i the fine clover to be found in this vicinity will put them io condition for service. Gens. Sheridan, Gregg and Custar are en titled to great praise for the manner in which the expedition has been conducted. FROM EUROPE. The Danish War?A Truce Agreed Upon.

Rev jflr. lanahan, of the Baltimore Coafer ei c , 'avor-d he tmendn eat, because the lac* puage more becoming a calm, deliberate tony of > briMian ministers. Kev.Col. Mqcdy said he believed that Mr. Lnntilian had and did sympa hiae with the re bellion. Tbat was his private opinion publicly expressed. R?v.Mr. Peck, of California, defended Mr. Lanahan. He said tbat any man who resided on the border and had stood up as nobly as Mr. Lanahan had, whs far above any such re mark as bad been applied to him. Thus remark; was lohdiy applauded by the conference. Rev. Mr Lanahan also reyled. He had but one record, and tbat stood without a blot. He re) udiated every and all cbargesof disloyalty, and bad in his pocke's to-day records from the War Department at Washington thanking him for ihe services he had rendered the Govern ment. Col. Moody endeavored to explain, but the Conteje nee would not permit, a motion to ad journ being carried. On Tuesday, the above subject tame up again, and? R?-v. Col. Meody rose Immediately after the reading of the journal, and claimed the pMvi lege of nr.'king an explanation, in continuation of wlmLlw-^iihcd to say when the ?'onferen :e adjoUrmd tbe day previous. He called atten tion t? a misapprehension. . The debate on Monday came upon a report from the Com mittee on Itinerancy, that the journal of the ore Conference for IStw baa been stolen bv a disloyal member, now a notorious ssces > sicnist in the rebel ranks It was then moved the report be amended by inserting "The j' anal was withheld by the Secretary of thai Ctnierente." This Mr. M. opposed, as he be lieved in calling things by their rieht names. Col.

Mr Lanahan then made a personal attack oil bim, for which he was called to order by ths Chair. He then retreated his remarks. To tbis Colonel Moody replied that he would rather appear on the record as endeavoring to affix the mert'ed stigma cn the secesh secreta ry v. ho had absconded witn the journals ot the Bal'imore Conference than to appear in sym pathy wi?h a rebel, in shielding him from ths merited btigma. He did not charge at tbat time that Mr. Lanahau was. In sympathy. He wished to withdraw tho opinion expressed on Monday relative to his sympathy with disloy alty, as that opinion was mainlv baseii upon Mr. Lanaban s action in the vote of the Balti more Conference, bj which a series of loval resolutions were laid upon the table. He wa? air oug the number so to vote. The .speaker rt ad the charges of disloyalty preferred in the papers against the Baltimore gentleman, al th< nph it was said that Mr. I.auaban aud some others who voted to lay on the table were not to be considered as disloyal. He was glad to fir d that he so resented a suspicion of disloy alty, although he (the speaker) was not in pos session of all the tacts in the when he tsaoe iac iiwitr ?n Monday. JJct Mr. LuiahaD said, lu bul #?v#r realized until tbat day the idea of being called a traitor. A charee of this kind once put forward can never be taken back.

But he made remarks which my fr i i ds seid reflected upon myself. The speaker demanded an explanation, and Cc-lovel &1< ody replied tbat from information re eived at Washington and the Baltimore Con ference he believed he (the speaker) was in syn pathy w rh the rebellion.
