THE EVENING STAR. W. 0> WALLA* U. Mil.' Prtyntw. WASHINGTON OITT J SATURDAY MAY 99, 1964. KTUADINe MATTER ON BVERT PAGE III OUTBIDS FOR INTF.RRSTING T1LJ VAAFHIO AND UTHKR MATT1R. NEWS FROM REBELDOM. THE REBELS THINK GRANT'S STRATEGY" " UNSOUND." BREAD RIOT THREATENED IN RICHMOND. A gentleman of an InqnisiUve tarn of mind irho baa circulated to ?om? extent in the rebel camps lately, baa returned to our line*, and report# among otber things tbat tbe rebels have been expaoting from day to day tbat Grant's ap parently reckless movement across Lee's right would result In bis placing blm in tbe trap "Where fcee wanted blm. but they admit that Oraot's rapidity or movement and good luck, bare enabled him to succeed in an "unsound" maneuver. Grant's wrinkle of wholly severing his con nection witb his b?e of supplies and taking tft* cfiances of establishing another they say is quite indefensible strategically,?a piece of qoizotlcal rashness, successful only in Grant's case through the same streak of good luck wb<ch must come to an end, they bold, sooner ?r later. They believe tbat Grant will not contest Lee's position on the line of the South Anna and Pamunkey, but will strike down towards the York River Railroad flanking Lee's right and opening a new base at West Point. This they claim will be virtually forcing Grant to return to McOlellan's line of advance on Richmond, but taey admit that Grant, in reaching it will have oovered Washington and crippled Lee in men and supplies sufficiently fo put it out of bis power to carry out any in vasion projects be might have undertaken during tbe four weeks or more time required to send tbe Army of the Potomac to tbe Pen insula by water. Lee's army is tolerably supplied with pro visions, but it is a supply eked out day by day by great exertion on the part of the rebel com missariat. There was danger of a bread riot in Richmond, lrom tbe fact tbat almost all the prcduce seeking Richmond as a market has, by military order, been diverted to Lee's army. ALL OF THE WOUNDED BROUGHT UP FROM FREDERICKSBURG. 1 he steamers Key port and Lizzie Baker ar rived bere this morning with Ave hundred wounded?all that were at Fredericksburg. Tbe wounded brought up on these boats are the most serious cases that have reached bere yet. nearly all of them having lost limbs. ?ome of these cases were found to be so dan gerous, that it was impossible to remove the unfortunate men from the litters on whicbtbey were brougbt up in tbe boats, and as they could not bear the jostling of the ambulances, detach ments of the Reserve Corps were engaged for several hours in carrying them from the wharf to the hospitals. Six died on board the Keyporton tbe upward trip, as did also qui e a number on the Lizzie Baker. Five died on the wharf while waiting their Jurns to be removed, and others breathed their last while being conveyed from the wharf to the hospitals It was heart-rending to hear the groans of some of these poor fellows &3 they were being taken lrom the boats to tbe dock.

LEE IN A STRONG POSITION ON NEWFOUND RIVER. BETWEEN THE NORTH AND SOUTH ANNA. GRANT MOVING TO OUTFLANK HIM. UTTER DESTRUCTION OF THE REBEL COM MUNICATIONS ON THE VIRGINIA CENTRAL RAILROAD. EVERYTHING WORKING WELL IN FRONT. A courier for the Philadelphia Inquirer ar rived in town to-day, bringing very late infor mation from the front. Up to Thursday night, 26th instant, there had been no fighting beyond slight skirmishes. On our extreme left Grant bad thrown a small force across the Pamunkey river, below Sex ton's Junction, in the direction of Hanover Court House. The report that we have held Sexton's J unc tion is untrue, as we have never occupied that point. Lee occupies a strong position between the North and South Anna, along the line of New found river and of the South Anna, in which Newfound river empties. The rebels are seen busily occupied throwing up entrenchments in front of their line as if anticipating an attack by Grant in that di rection. It is not thought that Grant will accommo date them by an attack on this strong position, bnt is working out a plan which will put Lee on a double-quick again, or force him to accept a fair fight in the open field. The destruction of the Virginia Central Railroad above Sexton's Junction has been so complete that it will be utterly useless to the rebels?rails destroyed, cuttings filled, em bankments thrown down, bridges burned, &e., tc. All the information from the front is in the highest degree encouraging, and calculated to inspire the utmost confidence in the success of the plans Grant is busily working out. FROM FREDERICKSBURG. GUERRILLAS FIRE OX SOME OF OUR SOL DIERS WHILST BATIIING. Parties who reached here this morning from Fredericksburg report that guerrillas continue to hover around the town in considerable num bers. Many ot them are also to be seen along the banks of the Rappahannock. On Thursday evening the guerrillas, sup posing that Fredericksburg had been evac uated, made a dash up to where some of our troops were in the river bathing, and fired upon them, killing one and wounding two. They soon discovered that our forces held the town, and they immediately skedaddled. A detachment of Union cavalry were sent in pursuit, but they were unable to overtake the marauders. The train sent out from Fredericksburg to the Wilderness to bring in the wounded that were left in hospital there, had not returned when our in formants left, but no fears were entertained for its safety, as the guard accom panying it was sufficient to protect it from the depredations of the fcerrillas. FROM THE FRONT. THE FIRST ARRIVAL OF WOUNDED FROM PORT ROYAL. The steamer City of Albany arrived at Al exandria to-from Port Royal with seven bunared wounded on board. The men were wounded on Tuesday and Wednesday last in the fighting on the North Anna. Up to neon yesterday no cannonading had b*en heard at Port Royal from the scene of Grant's operations, thirty-five miles distant from Port Royal, and consequently it is believed that if any fighting had taken place since Wednesday it was mostly of musketry. TOTAL EVACUATION OF AQUIA CREEK. TI1E BUILDINGS DESTROYED. The steamer Columbus arrived at Alexan dria early this morning bringing up the last of the rolling stock lrom the Fredericksburg Railroad with a number of Veteran Reserves who had been guarding that point and the road. Some of the buildings were destroyed Thursday night, and last night the work of demolition was finished to prevent the build ings being used as shelter places by the guer rillas. THE OFFICE OF THE ASSISTANT SURGEON GENERAL OK THE ARMIES OF THE WEST AND 80UTHWEST ESTABLISHED AT LOUISVILLE. KY. To facilitate the prompt transmission of medical supplies to points developed by emer gencies, secure the proper distribution and presence of medical officers and their assistants where their services are most required, and to provide comfortable, abundant, and available hospital accommodation for the sick and wounded of the Armies of the West and South west, the office ot the Assistant Surgeon Gen'i has been established at Louisville, Ky.

The total number of wounded in the late battles brought to this city from Fredericks burg, Aquia Creek and Belle Plain, is estimated to be ?5,500. This includes the considerable comber of Confederate wounded who were left in our hands. As there was bat little ar tillery used in the engagements bet ween Grant and Lee, the proportion of serious cases is unusually small, and a large number of the wounded will be able to return to the field within thirty days.

COlfORBSSIONAL. XXXVIIITX CONORgBS.?FIRST 8188101* Saturday, May *28. Senate.?Mr. Wade called up the bill to amend the charter of the city of Washington In regard to the registration of voters?the pend ing question being on Mr. Willey's amendment to Mr. Sumner's negro suffrage proviso?Mr. Willey's being in the following words: "Pro vided, however, tbat no such resident, who is entitled to vote elsewhere, shall be entitled or allowed to vote under or by virtue of this res olution." This amendment to the amendment was rejected. The question was then taken on Mr. Sum ner's amendment, as previonslv amended by Mr. Harlan, limiting the negro suffrage or per mission to register to theso who have borne arms in the U. S. military service and be**n honorably discharged; and it was agreed to. Mr. Carlile then suggested to amend by substituting the word "citizen" instead of "res ident" in the bill, so as to prevent temporary residents, and who hold citizenship in other States, from voting here. Mr. Willey thought the amendment would cot accomplish the object; and On motion of Mr. Ten Eyck, the words "who is a qualified voter in other respects" was then inserted in the first line of the bill, after the word "pe son." Mr. Sumner then moved another proviso, giving all persons, without distinction of color, a vote who had, during the previous year, paid a tax on any estate or been assessed for part of the revenue of the city, &c. After debate it was rejected?yeas ?, nays 27. Some further modifications of the first amend ed proviso of Mr. Sumner were then made, and it was put in the following form : " Provided that no distinction shall be made between persons who have borne arms in the military service of the United States." It was then rejected?yeas 19, nays 20. The bill was then passed. LOCAL NEWS. A meeting of the friends of Jno. H. Semmes in the Second Ward was held last evening at L nited Hall, 11th street. The meeting was called to order by Mr. G. Powell, on whose motion Mr. W. P. Shedd was called to the chair. Mr. George Bowers was elected secre tary. Nominations being in order for a candidate for the Board of Aldermen, Messrs. George T. Raub, Grafton Powell, and Wm. P. Shedd were nominated. Mr. Shedd stated that he had striven to do his duty In the lower Board, but he had no de sire to be a candidate for the Board of Alder men. Mr. Powell said he had been accused ol being a secessionist, and denied the charge emphati cally. He was a Union man on any condition A ballot was had?Messrs. J. H. Yeatman and W. H. Sincell being tellers?with the fol lowing resultFor Mr. Raub, 46; Mr Powell, 3; Mr. Shedd, 3. Mr. Raub was therefore de clared the nominee, and the nomination was made unanimous. The following were put in nomination for the Council tieket:?Thos. W. Miller, Michael R. Coombs, Wm. P. Shedd, J. H. Yeatman, and L. Johnson, and a ballot was had, resulting as follows:?Miller, 56; Coombs, 52, Shedd. 50; Yeatman, 10; Johnson, 3. The three first named were thereupon declared the nominees tor Council, and on motion, the nomination was made unanimous. On motion of J. H. Dnbant, a committee of ! i?rree?John McClellan, O.H. Marsh and Wm. Rutherford?were appointed to draft res [ olutions. During the absence of the committee calls were made for the candidates, and Mr. Raub, who had entered the room, came forward in answer to a call, remarking that as "Prudence is the better part of valor," he would not say much, and would return his thanks for the flattering compliment paid him in nominating I him for Alderman, which was more than he [ had expected. He would promise, however, to deal uprightly and honestly with all, as here totore, not forgetting his friends. Mr. Shedd expressed his thanks for the flat tering compliment paid him so unexpectedlv i He would endeavor to do his duty in the future as in the past and work tor the benefit of the ward and city. The true policy was to legis late for the masses and not for classes and for that reason be had voted against the bill to in crease the pay of corporation laborers, he be lieving that the laborer could command an equivalent for bis work. He also opposed the bill for watering the avenue on the ground that it was wrong to appropriate money from the general fund for such purpose to the exclu sion ol other portions of the city. Mr. Miller was called tor, and briefly re turned his thanks, remarking that he was no speech maker, but if they had any water pipe? to lay be was on hand. The committee on resolutions returned, and, through Mr. Marsh, reported resolutions en dorsing the nomination of Mr. Semmes for Mayor, and the nominations for Aldermen and Common Council, pledging themselves to use their utmost energies to elect them to the offices named.
