Richmond papers of Monday, the 30th, have been received here. They have chanced their views with regard to the military ability of General Grant, t>nd say that they have been underrating him. They sav that he is smarter than they had dreamed of, and manifest some fears in regard to the safety of Gen. Lee, or rather as to bis success in repelling the Yankee army. A messenger from General Grant reports that on Monday morning our army had reached Mechanlcsville, with but little opposition.

FROM THE ARMY OF THE POTOMAC. Particulars of the Flank Movement?The Crossing of the Pamunkey?Cavalry Fight with Fitzhugh Lee. [Associated Press Correspondence.J Oli> Chcbch Tavbrn, Va, May 30, via Washington, .lune 1.?We have again flanked the enemy. Our forces were withdrawn to the noi th side of the North Anna river last Thurs day and Friday. General Sheridan, with Tor bett's and Gregg's divisions of cavalry, marched all night, and on Thursday morning the fords on the Pamunkey were in our possession. At Dabney's Ferry. Baiter's North Carolina brigade opposed our advance, and resisted us when we laid our pontoon bridge. Generals Custer's and Deems brigades drove the enfmy off to Hanover Court House, killing many aad capturing a large number of prisoners. The 6th corps was soon at our heels. Then came the '2d, 5th and 9th. Lee was doomed to disappointment, and his elaborate fortifications would not serve him. Grant was found on his right flank, and he must away to Richmond. On Saturday morning Gregg's division of cavalry was flred into near Hawes's Shop. Davies's brigade was in the advance. The woods seemed alive with the rebels, and soon began to resound with sharp volleys from our carbines. In a short time Davies's entire brigade'was fighting in earnest. Colonel Gregg was ordered to Daviea's support, and the re mainder of the division were hotly engaged. Fitzhugh Lee commanded the rebels in person, and bis cavalry corps were all fighting, as sisted by a brigade of mounted fire-eaters from South Carolina, commanded by Col. Butler. These men had just arrived from the seaboard, and they admit the warmth of the reception our troops gave them. Conspicuous In the battle were the ith, 13th and 16th Pennsylvania, the 1st New Jersey, 6th Ohio and 1st Massachusetts regiments. For a long time these men held Fitzbugh back, and all onr cavalrymen engaged behaved with distinguished bravery. We found the rebels strongly entrenched in this w^ods, with heavy guns In position, but with every ad vantage upon their side, they were badly beaten, and sent flying from the field in great confusion, leaving their dead and wounded in our hands, and over 100 prisoners. Gen. Gregg maintained the ur.equal contest from noon till two o'clock p. m., when Gen. Custer came up and formed bis squadrons into line and charged the enemy s works. Gen. Gregg's command advanced at the same time with a cheer. Manv a brave fellow fell in this daring assault, but the works were onrs and soon not an armed rebel could be tound for tfcree miles. The 13th and 16th Pennsylvania, and the 5th and 7th Michigan suflerea a heavy loss*. Too much credit cannot be given to this brigade, which fought with unprecedented calmness amid the storm of grape and canister. Our loss will amount to 360 killed and wounded and missing. The rebels used grape and canister plentifully. Our infantry were all up the same evening, and long strong lines of fortifications were erected, so that if Lee should attempt to cross our path we were prepared. He did not, how ever, and next morning our newlymade breast works were abandoned, and the column moved on toward Richmond. On Monday, the 3i?th, Major Deoland had two squadrons of the l?th Pennsylvania cavalry on picket duty. He held the road leading from Cold Harbor to Old Church Tavern. About noon his pickets were driven in, and the enemy appeared in heavy force. Col. Deems sent the 0th and 6th New York regiments to reinforce Major Dfoland, when a heavy engagement ensued. John Auglin. quartermaster of the 17th Pennsylvania, was killed, while fighting in 'be skirmish line. Gen Merrittsocn arrived with his brigade, and a battery of brass Napoleons were trained on the rebels and opened fire. The6th Pa. was sent in on the left of the line, and charged the rebel flank. Here Capt. Seiper was wonnded and Lieutenant Martin killed. Gen. Custer next entered and a general charge was ordered, when the rebels were swept from our sight. They fled, leaving a large number of their dead and wounded on the field. Lieutenant Blunt of the 6ih New York, and Captain Tice of the 17th Pennsylvania, were wonnded. Fitzbugh Lee wta bafiled and foiled in bis efforts to stop onr communication with the "White House. Onr advance is now (Bpnday) near Mechan lcsville. On the left Warren was using his cannon freely all day. He drove in the rebel picket lines abont four miles. Lee's army occupy the trenches abont Mea dow and Bottom bridges. To day onr communication with the White House was opened. The Pamunkey ia full of transports and gunboata. We expect General Smith to join ns with his command in two dajs. General Hancock made one of his mighty efforts last night abont dark to relieve Warren who had been slightly pressed during the afternoon. Onr loss, so far, has been very trifling. _ ^ The siege of Richmond has began. THE CLEVELAHP COflYEWTIOW. The Freatont Platform?The P?r?T *?

Mr. Gilbert taking tbe cbair, the question vis put, and the nomination of Gen. Cochrane was confirmed, with but few voices in the nega tive. A Committee was appointed to report a plan of organization and a name for the party. Mr. Sanger, a German, from Iowa, offered a resolution tbat members of this Convention, or any Convention arising tberefrom, and its Presidential Electors, pledge themselves not to accept office or contracts from the new Administration ; bnt tbat this pledge shall not exclude them from serving in the army Or navv. Mr Domers, of New \ork, spoke at length, favoring Gen Grant, and threatening tbe par ty with failure unless it waited for events and these candidates by a regular delegation from tbe people instead of an informal meet in e Germans especially are wild over Fremont'? nomination. Parker Pillsbury and Mr. S. S. Foster, tbe New England Abolitionist, and Messrs. Plumb and Goodeil, Abolitionists of New York, and Caspar Buts, of Missouri, have taken a conspicuous part in the Conven tion. Mr- S. J. Rea, of Philadelphia, endeavored to nrge tbe rule of voting by States, but was voted down Tbe assembly is generally with out credentials, and is self constituted, claim ing to be an unconditional people's party. A letter from Wendell Phillips was read, giving support to either Fremont or Butler. Tbis Administration hod sustained the rebel lion, and thought more of conciliating its foes than serving tbe country. It bad misused its tbiee weapons to put down the war?men, money and emancipation?and bad just done enougb to intimidate the rebels and not save tbe State. We shall have to continue the war in tbe Senate atter closing it on the field. There must be a thorough reorganization of Stages on tne basis of absolute equality?tbe blaiks admitted to citizenship, or we most hold Stares as territt ries under standing armies. He concluded by praising the high statesmanship and military ability of Gen. Fremont. Tbe Convention voted to call the new party ??The Radical Democracy." At no time has the Convention been very large or very Im pressive, and It adjourned without fulfilling tbe expectations ot its organizers. RUINED OR NOT ? "Gold is 190, and the property of the country will be destroyed," says Mr. Faintheart. ??Gold is going to 2oo, and I shall be broke," says Mr. Weakknees. "Iam mined! My bank balance is worth only fifty-five cents on the dollar,'' says Jir Nevertbink. Let us stop a moment, gentlemen, and look into this matter. Facts are better than fears, and principle is better than prejudice. Yoa are suffering? yes, suffering, there is no other word for it?under the delusion that the amoant of gold and silver coin in tbe sountry is an equivalent of its wealth. Now, do you know tbat the highest financial authorities have never estimated tbis amount at over two hun dred at d fifty millions, and it is probably much less, even In time of peace. But suppose we admit tbat it is three hundred millions; and now do von know tbat, according to tbe United States Census of 1&C0, tbe wealth of the coun try?its real snd personal property?was esti mated (rather too low than too bigb) at fifteen thcutand millions. If you will just take your pencil and cypher out tbe proportion that three bundred millions in specie bears to fifteen thousand millions of property, you will dis cover that it is?what 1 fifty per cent T No Twenty.five percent.! No!?but exactly !uw per cent.,?that is, tbe whole amount of specie in the country never was two par oent, or a filtieth part of the specie value of the property; and if, at any one time, the whole property of tbe country had been forced to sale for the specie in tbe country, it would not have brought two cents on the dollar ot its actual specie value. , Specie, or the currency that may stand for it, is only the convenient and recognized medium for making an exchange of products. It repre sents property in the market, property in transit, but never the fixed property of a nation. Money is the lubricator. It don't make values; it sim ply lubricates tbe machinery, and keep* tba wheels of commerce running smoothly. When too abundant, the wheels run too fast; and when scarce, there is too much friction. And now, Mr. Faintheart, can yon piek a flaw in our statement! Is it not absolute trothf But what shall we say to Mr. Weakknees, who is afraid of bankruptcy, and Mr. Nevertbink, wbo is only afraid of his bank-balanoe. If Mr. Weakknees is In debt, it is now easy to get out. Pay up while money is plenty, and bo happy. If a mortgage on your land will be due next year or any year provide tor it now while yon are getting high prices for everything yon sell Bnt Mr. Neverthink, you have-say a bank balance of *20,000. You are afraid, that gold is going up or paper going down abont out o? sight, and you wish to invest this balance in some productive property. Will yon buy a bouse worth only 910,000 in specie, and pay for it $18,000 in currency I Suppose yon wis* to sell that house alter the resumption of specie payments, it will bring yon only ?10,000, and yon will have lost exactly $8,000. Will that be a shrewd operation ? We think we can ??put you up" to something better?somsthing by which you can make your bank balance or currency not only worth its face in gold, bnt m premium besides. Invest in GovtrUMBC Bonds. Buy the HMO's. After the warleerer* they will be worth par in gold and soMtilac over?and they pay a liberal gold Interest ft mot tbe beginning. If they are not safs, then no property is safe. The sams spirit of anarchjr that would repudiate your property in the na tional debt would repudiate it in your fctwa. If the law will not protect you In one descrip tion of your property, it will net lu another, and your greatest safety as well as profit is in maintaining and strengthening the Govern, ment that maintains and supports tbe law. VA notary in one of the prOYtBCi&i towns of France istely forwarded to the Bank o? France a brick with a lOOOf. note glned on U, ?which has been paid, and will be kept in th# Bank Museum of Curiosities. It had bssn for mteen years glued on the wall of a peasant'* bouse, and considered as a pictorial curiosity by the min who found it, and wbo did not know Its vslne. ?7" The usually quiet town of Marrtsburg, pa., was the scene of quite an excitement a few days ago. An Indignant wifa having die covered her husband in bed with another wo man at Hsrr's Hotel, inflicted summary vfl geance upon her with a knife.
