Despatch From Urntrtl Grant?A Sudden Attack of the Enemy Repulsed?General Grant Reinforced* Washington, June 5?1 P. M. Major Otncral Dix, New York : A despatch trom Gen. Grant's headquarters dated half past eight o'clock last night, has been received. It states that??about 7 p. m. yesterday, (Fri day, 3d June,) the enemy suddenly attacked Smith'* brigade, of Gibbon's division. The battle lasteci with great fnry for half au hour. The attack was unwaveringly repulsed. Smith's losses were Inconsiderable. ?? At 6 p. m. Wilson, and his cavalry, fell up on the rear of a brigade of Heth's division which Lee had thrown aronud to his left, ap parently with the intention of enveloping Burnslde. After a sharp but short conflict Wilson drove them from their rifle pits In con fusion. He took a few prisoners. He had previously fought with and routed Gordon's brigade of rebel cavalry. ? During these fights he lost several officers, among them Col. Preston, of the 1st cavalry, killed; Col. Benjamin, Sth New York cavalry, seriously wounded; Gen. Stannard, of the isth corps, was seriously wounded, yesterday ^Fri day.) ??Our entire loss, in killed, wounded, and missing, during the three days operations around Cold Harbor, will not exceed, accord ing to the adjutant general's report, seven thou sand five hundred. "This morning (Saturday, June 4) the ene my's left wing, In front ol Burnside, was found to have been drhwn in during the night. ?< Colonel Cesenola, in command of five thou sand men, arrrlved here yesterday having marched from Port Royal. ?'Telegraphic communication between Cher ry Stone and Fortress Monroe continues inter rupted " A despatch from General Sherman dated yesterday, June 4, 3 a. m., thirteen miles west of Marietta, reports that his left is now weli around, covering all roads from the south to the railroad about Ackworth. His cavalry has been in, and occupies in force all the Altoona Pass. No other military Intelligence has been re ceived by the department. Edwtw M. Stanton Secretary of War. FROM GRANT'S ARMY. Continued de*pernte Fighting?Attack on Warren's Corps Repulsed?Our Lines Advanced, [Correspondence Associated Press.] Hbadquahters Army op the Potomac, June 3, !> p. m.?Fighting has been going on nearly all day along the line, but principally artillery, the casualties being quite large. When Barlow's division charged the enemy's works early this morning, he succeeded In get ting possession of seventeen guns, besides the prisoners he took, abont 050; but not being sup ported. and subjected to an enfilading fire, he was compelled to evacuate the works he had so gallantly taken and abandon the guns. His lots was very severe, amounting to about eight hundred. Gen. Warren's corps on the right was at taccked this afternoon by a heavy force of the enemv, but the enemy were handsomely re pulsed with seveee loss. The 15th corps were engaged in Bkirmishing most of the day, and made a charge on a por tion of the line in their front, but were unable to bold it. They fell back in good order to their former position. The 6th corps, on the l> ft of the l-th, have been engaged more or less all day, and have suffered a good deal for the past two days. An attack on the left of the -id corps, supposed for the purpose of feeling our left, was made an hour ago (8 p. m.,) but the enemy was soon driven ofi The loss is not known. A captain of cavalry was captured a day or two ago while trying to rally his men. He was greatly excited and cursed his men at a terrible rate, saying the whole Southern cavalry were worthless, and it was no use trying to flght any more. Our losses for the last two days at Coal Har bor will number over five thousand in killed and wounded, while the enemy's will be nearly the syme. The change of position to-day has been very little, our advance being abont a mile beyond Coal Harbor. THE WAR IN GEORGIA. Severe Fight on the 35th nit.?The Enemy , Finally Driven_ Cincinnati, June 5 ?The Commercial has accounts from Gen. Sherman's array up to the 31st ult. There was a sharp and bloody flght on the 25th between Hooker's corps and the rebel Gen. Hood's command, near Dallas. The bat tle began at 5 p. m. The 2d division, General Williams, drove the enemy from his first line of works for a distance of two miles. 'I his di vision was soon relieved by the 1st an<l 3d di visions, Gens Geary and Butterfield, who ad vanced steadily under a terrible fire of mus ketry. They proceeded to within forty yards of a concealed battery, which opened upon them with a sudden and murderous discharge of erape and canister. The 1st division, in this charge, l03t POO men. The battery was finally silenced, and the en emy driven away. But few prisoners were taken on either side. Onr loss was probably greater than the ene my's, amounting to about 1,500. The substantial fruits ol the day's work was again of two miles of ground, giving us a fa vorable position, two pieces of artillery, and a better arrangement of the line for subsequent operations. On the Wth a general engagement was ex pected, but McPherson's corps did not come up. There was a good deal of skirmishing with musketry. Prisoners report that reinforcements had in creased Johnston's army to 70,000. On the 27th there was a severe flght on the left. Wood's division and Scribner's brigade of Johnston's division lost 400 men. On the 2*th there was heavy picket firing. On the 29th the rebels made a night attack, but were repulsed with heavy loss. IMPORTANT FROM MISSOURI. Activity of Guerrillas. St. Lor is, June 5.?Despatches received by Gen. Kwing from Col. Rogers, commanding at Cape Girardeau, state that the enemy are un usually active in that portion of the State. Col. McLane reports that on the night of the 2d, 200 guerrillas camped near Patterson. He sent a force of 200 men to look after them. A force of guerrillas iB reported at Cane Isl and, and another at Doniphan. Colonel Rogers thinks the movement of the guerrillas are intended to cover an attack on tome important point, and that McOrea will probably make an attack on Patterson. A message from Capt. Ewing, of Bloomfleld, says: "The guerrillas have destroyed the tele graph near Charleston, and swear that they intend to keep it down." _ x ... A despatch from Colonel Rogers, dated Cape Girardeau, June 3, says: "A whole company of guerrillas have crossed the river and swamp and were within eight miles of there last night. They havecutthe telegraph wire between here and New Madrid." ,, The presence of these bands of guen-illas is accounted for by the abandoninent of Bates vllle and Jacksonport by the t nion troops, leaving the country open to the rebels. BATTLE OF COLD HARBOR. Oneratitf" ?* ThnfMay-The Enemy De late* by Gen. W right?Brilliant Cavalry Combats, [Correspondence Philadelphia Inquirer.] Cold Harbor, S?v? Milks rao* Rich MOKDTThursday, June 2,2 p. m.-The events of yesterday include another battle. Again o5r cannons have been heard in Richmond, and araiu we inscribe the word success upon our Sers. Between Cold Harbor and Crau*ss' Mill, nearly on the same ground th-it witnessed one of the fiercest of the famous seven days' battles, we havo once more en traced the enemy andithis time beaten him. Curing Tuesday night Gen. Wright's (sixth) corns was quietly withdrawn from the front on oux extreme right, and marched quietly off in rear of the rest of tke army towards Cola Harbor, some miles beyond oar extreme left. And not only was the sixth corps moving that direction, but aimultarieonsiy with it we eighteenth corps, under Gen* <4xith, J* bad been brought from the Jam^e rivei .0 "White Home on transports was advancing "O ?wards the same point. The two columus v*? nected punctually at the desired motneal Each day's unfolding of event* increaiee en* admiration of the far-reaching and oompre ? feenelve strategy of Gen. Grant. Abroih-cM-? tbe splendid movement of the Army of tfle Potomac, tome of us bad halt forgctten that this vu only a par: of the isun?ui< fore* act ing under the guidance cf the Cemmander-in ? Chief. Cold Harbor is a name given -o a house the adjacent locality a; the Intersection of t*o roads. One road leads direct to'i* Bridge, which is seven utiles distant: the other is called the Gaines' Mills road to KkhmOa?i. By this road, Cold Harbor is about miles from Richmond, and about fl .?? n from the Cbickahominy liver. General Sheridan, wno. with Torbtrt's -n-l Gregg's division of cavalry, has beea ope<* ting on our left flank, occupied thla point ca Tuesday night, after a sharp fight wuh Fit*, hugh Lee's division of rebel cava'ry, \ 4 about two brigades 0f Beauregard's corp* .f infantry. The former drove the enemy aVut two and a half miles before reacting C 1 Harbor: the latter he fonnd a: that p.i*?tj A position behind slight breastworks, frcm wh e*i ne ultimately drove them, and held the ptei#, in spite of two or three attempt* during tli? nignt to retake it, until the arrival of Wrifct;t and Smith's corps yesterday afterncon, v h n the cavalry was relieved, and parsed on t further towards the left General Shfr?J'.ai had in this affair about, eighty kllle! .-.J wounded, and captured one handr.d twenty-five prisoners. The infantry on reaching Cold Harbor a? i relieving 'he cavalry, which they did nbout5.?f p. m., yesterday. prepared at once to forrrj '* battle. Gen. Wright formed his corps vrj-s the Gaines Mills road, with Kickeu'a i'.ivU;::t ^the 3d) on the right. Russell's divifiou (tP.a 1st) joining Ricketts. and Neill"a (2d) diyi I a on the extreme left. Smith's corps too* p.^t tion on theright of the 5th. Skirmisbers were tiirown out, and a number ot batter^ 1 ? er? brought up and put in position at favorable points near the Gaines Mills road Heavy artillery firing and some skirmi -*tr,g commenced soon after 4 p. m., and in tho tuea;? time the preparations for battle were basily going lorward to the rear. At about 6 y p. ra heavy volleys of musketry began to mtn?!? their eound with the booming ot artillery. It was an advance of our line?a charge upon the enemy's position. Our line of battle, at least that of theSt**^ Corps, was formed under eover of a narrow strip of woods, which served to conceal o?jt movements from the enemy. Ad .wis;* through this we came on open ground, *r& fighting very soon con.meni?ed. Gemrul Rus sell's division, which was next on tte r;g~t, was very hotly engaged. They advanc -k fully a mile, driving the eneiny before t.f.a, I General Russell, in person, leading the J charge at the head of bis old brigade ('V? Third.) Gaining the crest of a ridge the .-4 my's line of breastworks was seer. plainly ! i view at the distance of about a quarter cf a mile. On the left of Russell's Division was the Third Division, under Gen. Ricketts. TM? division was eminently succeESfo). pA'Si;^? through the strip of wocds above mention J, behind which they formed, they adva^. ? V over an open field, across a swampy V^tto.a, aud on a wooded hill beyond descried t*ia rr^.l entrenchments, to the shelter of which the #?? emy retired on their advance. A charge wis immediately ordered. The men advance I w tH fixed bayonets, worked their way trough iw? peding ielled timber and abattis, and gallantly carried the works in spite of the slubborn re sistance and well-directed fire of a determine J foe. Five hundred prisoners were taken U once, and within less than five minutes 150 more were afterwards captured at various parts of their line. On the right of the f?th corps, Gen. with the l?th, was entirely successful, t-Jting the enemy's line of entrenchments in f-gv* t bis entire line, and holding them. Theremin made several attempts during the night to ~e take their captured works, but we:o rep il; -.1 each time, and must have suffered eever. '.j. The troops opposed tonsembraed gard's corps, and a par:, if not all, of street's and Hill's. Our entire loss in this engagement must have been about *-','10. The wounded In ihs ttt 11 corps numbered about SOU, Ras^li's di vision 4< 0, Rickett's 300and Nelll'9 If]. TTHt killed and missing would doubtless svr 11 the number to more thau 1.000. In the 18th corps the wounded numbered about TOO, and thr t ' .A loss of the corps could not have b??n inne* less than 1,000. This morning the 2d corps armed .it (' :? Harbor, and proceeded further to the leii, wi'h the intention oi crossing the Chickah<><4 iny at Sumner's Bridge. The movrtuent y?i terday was doubtless the initiatory step to &? other grand flank movement, and if the suc cess of the latter is commensurate with the success of its beginning, we may shotWv ** pect to see great results. FROM THE SOCTK. Peace Propositions? Correspon< ?UCC lir tweeu Jefi Davis aud Gov. Vanoj, The Petersburg Express under data of .-Tuy ?25,1-01, publishes a correspondence rela'i ,0 to peace propositions which pa??od S t v 1:1 Gov. Vance and Jeff J)avis. Gov. Vance's letter is dated De:emt>cr Jwh, and says: "After a careful confident!.,a of all the sources of discontent in Nor th O" > lina, I have concluded that it will bo ira^c^ -k ble to remove it except by making 30103 eff > t at negotiation with ttie tn^my. The reeert ticu of .he Federal Honse of Repre^enu'.i ja, though meaning very little, has greatly < .xc?t I the public hope that the Northern mind is took-. iug towards peace. And, although our tion is well known as demandingonly o be let j alone, yet it seems to me that for the snk : of j humanity, without having any weak f r'rr*. i proper motives attributed to us, wj qij.^t, with propriety, corutantly tendtr ptr-y'mtiott. Though statesmen might regard ;ttis as useWs, the people will not, and I think our :an?e ill be strengthened thereby. I have not ?u*g?.; d the method of these negotiations or :h<-ir ter aa. The effort to obtain peace is the principal i? U ter." Davis replied on the Sth of J%ar.*rv, h d after ackn?wledging the receip. of ihe"l?t>t,. and of similar propositions heretofore, the -t^jr says: "Apart from insuperable objection* to .h# line of policy you propose (and to which I v:!l presently advert) I cannot see how the u>DT? material obstacles are to be surmounted.

Vice President Stephens made a patriot.-; der of his services in the hope of being to promote the cause of humanity, and Blthca^h little belief was entertained of his sneoes??, I cheerfully yielded to his suggestion, th.-t the experiment should be tried. The enemy re fused to let him pass through their linc^ or Co hold any conference with them. Ho 'vaa stopped before he ever reached Fortren Mon roe, on his way to Washington. To at'e.ayt again (in the face of these repeated 1 eject!3 is of all conference with us) to send comm Issu ers or agents to propose peace, is to invite in sult or contumely, and to subject eureejvfs to. indignity without the slightest chance cf bflng listened to. No true citizen, no man who hai our caaee at heart, can desire this, and the good people of North Carolina would be the lost :g ap prove of such an attempt, if aware of - if he facts.
