The Secretary of War this morning trans initted tbe following to den. Di* at New York Washington, J une 4?10 p. u. To Mcjor General Dix, New York : Despatches from General Grants head quarters, dated three o'clock yesterday after roon, have just been received. No operations took place on Thursday. Yesterday morning, at half-paat four o'clock, General Grant made an assault on the enemy's lines, ol which he makes the following report: ??We assaulted at 4.30 a. m. this morning, driv ing the enemy within his entrenchments at all points, but without gaining any decisive ad vantage. Our troops now occupy a position close to the enemy?some places witbin fifty yards?and are remaining. Our loss was net wvere, nor do I suppose the enemy to have lost heavily. We captured over three hundred prisoners, mostly from Breckinridge." Another later official report (not from Gene ral Grant) estimates the number of our silled and wounded at about three thousand. The lollowing officers are among the killed : Colo r.el Haskell, of the 36th Wisconsin: Colonel Porter, Sth New York Heavy Artillery; Colo nel Morris, f>6th New York. Among the wounded are General R. O. Ty ler. seriously, will probably lose a foot; Col, McMabon, lG4th New York; Col. Byrnes, 2Sth .Massachusetts, probably mortally; Colonel Brooks, 53d Pennsylvania. Edwin M.

THT SITUATION. The engagement of yesterday announced in the official dispatch published in to-day's Ftar, may be regarded as the third of t?ie series of heavy battles which arr- to determine the fate of Richmond. Grant, since crossing the Pa munkey, has been gradually drawing his lines nearer to the city's fortifications, aud in so doing has twice been heavily and unsuccess fully attacked by Lee. Ou both those occa sions the rebel effort was to drive Grant from positions the command of which enabled him to advance his lines still further, and in each the result was the repulse of the rebels and the failure of their efforts. On this occasion Grant made the attack, and had driven the rebels out of the open field. The entrenchments into which he states he has driven the enemy back, are, we hear from other sources?parties coming up on the boat bringing the official in formation?their line constructed in the Chick ahominy swamps. If our forces are able to hold their position within fifty yards of them, it is, it strikes us, quite safe to trust Grant to drive the rebels from them in very brief time. So far success has invariably crowned his strategy and energy when so situated. The Engagement on Tuesday last. GENERAL GRANT DRIVES THE ENEMY AND HOLDS THE GROUND. ALSO, HOLDS THE REBEL KILLED AND WOUNDED AND 300 PRISONERS. Advices from the army of the Potomac, dated June-Jd, in the morning, are to the effect that in our cavalry engagement on Tuesday we drove the enemy from their position on the IVl?chanicsville road and inflicted much dam age upon them. On the right wing the enemy with a strong force of cavalry and infantry advanced to retake the ground, but were forced to retire in hot haste, our guns pouring heavy volleys into their ranks. The rebel attack in the afternoon on the 6th corps was handsomely repulsed. They were driven about a mile, leaving their dead and wounded in our possession. Rickett's division took over 500 prisoners Our loss was cot severe. A like unsuccessful attempt was made upon Gen. Warren. The rebels lost heavily. Across the Tolopotomy Gen. Hancock was attacked on his left, but not in force; the ob ject cf the enemy evidently being to feel our position. We afterwards felt theirs, and found it well defended. It appears from the accounts that in every case of attack we got the advantage. ARRIVAL OF MORE WOUNDED. The steamer State of Maine arrived about 10 o'clock this morning, bringing up four hun dred and twenty wounded from the late bat tles before Richmond. The news brought up by the Connecticut as to heavy firing, &c., is confirmed by the State of Maine Among the wounded is John A. Huff of Co. E, 5th Michigan Cavalry who shot the Rebel General Jeb Stuart. Huff and his comrades state that their regiment was ordered to change their position and as they were about moving an officer was seen in front of the line giving orders when he asked the Colonel permission to "stop his gab," and obtaining it he immedi ately loaded his piece and dropped him. Mr. Huff is an excellent shot and was formerly in Berdan's sharpshooters, in which regiment he made many such good shots. The officer was subsequently ascertained to be Jeb Stuart Among the prisoners now at White House, brought in on Thursday, are two females, one a Sergeant in a Cavalry company, and the other a Lientenant, who were both in uniform (male attire.) The latter is said to be a remark ably fine looking wonfen, and when taken had command of a battery which was giving us not a iittle trouble. C APTURE OF A BLOCKADE RUNNER. The Navy Department has received infor mation of the capture, off Wilmington, of the steamer Caledonia, whilst attempting to run the blockade. The Caledonia is aside-wheel steamer, with long and high paddle-boxes. She has three smoke stacks, two forward, and one alt, with hay frames fore and aft, and has a straight stem. She is built like a river steamer and is at present painted a light lead color. The Caledonia is of 317 tons burthen, with a crew of 3? men- She was built and registered at Quebec in ISfio, and was owned by A. Keitts, Jr., of Halifax, who acts as agent at (.{.ueenstown for the Confederates. LATEST FROM FORTRESS MONROE. By a party from Fortress Monroe yesterday afternoon we learn that heavy firing was heard in front yesterday. Reinforcements were being rapidly pushed forward, ten large transports going upon Thursday, and a like number yes terday morning. The report of the capture of Fitzhugli Lee and 500 of his men was discredited at the fort yesterday. FROM THE RAPPAHANNOCK. The gunboat Commodore Reed arrived yes terday afternoon from the mouth of the Rappa hannock. All the stores belonging to the Gov ernment at Port Royal have been removed, and the transports containing the last of them were convoyed down the stream by the gunboats on Wednesday night, and on the following morn ing the blockade was again placed at the mouth of the Rappahannock. KILLED. CaptWm. Brevoort, 1st Michigan cavalry, was instantly killed in the skirmishing line near Whith House, Va., by a bullet through the head on the evening of the 1st instant. An officer present says he was gallantly cheering his men on at the time. He had been in up wards of sixty engagements. CONGRESSIONAL. iXXVIIlTH 00NGRE8B.?FIRST SESSION. Saturday, June 4.
