FROM MEMPHIS. -Defeat of General Sturgis?Destruction of his Ammunition and Artillery. Mbmphis, June 13.?The expedition under General Sturgis, which lett Memphis June 1st, is returning. We learn from an officer that they met a large tor:e of rebels at Guntown, said to be ten thousand infantrv and cavalry, under command of Forrest, Lee and Roddy. The force attacked them suddenly, and a most deeperatf fight ensued, resulting in the defeat of General Sturgis, with the loss of his wagon and ammunition trains. This last was the most severe less, as Sturgis ran out of am munition and was obliged to destroy and aban don his artillery. Many of his infantry were captured; the exact number is net known. General Sturgis* forces consisted of 3,000 cavalry and 5,000 infantry. This large rebel force is supposed to ibe en route to General Sherman's rear, to in terfere with his communications. :L Action of New York Supervisors in Regard to Ealistmeata.

GOOD NEWS FROM SHERMAN-REBEL BRI GADR &URROUNDED-RSBEL GEN. POLK KILLED. * Washimutob, Jane 15?7. a. m. To Major General Dix, Ntvo York : The movement of the Army of the Potomac to the south side of Richmond, across the Chlckahimony river and James river, has pro gressed far enough to admit of the publication of some generalfacts without danger of prema ture disclosure. After several days' preliminary prepara tions, the movement commenced Sunday night. The ISth corps, under command of Gen. Smith, marched to the White House, and there embarked on transports for Bermuda Landing. Wright's corps and Burnside's moved to Jones' Bridge, where they crossed the Chickahominy, and marched thence to Charles City, on the James river. Hancock's and Warren's corps crossed the Chickahominy at Long Bridge, and marched thence to Wilcox's, on the James river. The James river was to be crossed by the army at Powhattan Point. A dispatch from Gen. Grant, dated Monday evening, half-past 5 o'clock, headquarters, Wilcox's Landing, says that the advance of our troops had reached that place, and would commence crossing the James river to-morrow (Tuesday), and that Smith's corps would commence arriving at City Point that night; that no lighting was reported during the move ment, except a little cavalry skirmishing yes terday. Tuesday p. m., at one o'clock, General Grant was at Bermuda Landing. In a dispatch lrom him, dated there, of that date, he says: Our forces will commence crossing James river to-day. The enemy show no signs of yet having brought troops to the south side of Kichmond. ? Our movement from Cold Harbor to the James river has been made with great celerity, and so far without loss or accident. An official despatch, dated at Gen. Butler's headquarters, 2.20 p. m., says that Smith's corps was coming in, 5.000 having already landed. A despatch from Gen. Sherman's head quarters, dated at 3 o'clock yesterday after noon, near Kenesowa, states that the General Is in front, advancing his lines on Keneso wa. Another unofficial dispatch dated at 9 o'clock last night reports some advance to-day, that Thomas has gained ground, and that one rebel brigade is nearly surrounded. It further states that the rebel General Polk was killed to-day and his body sent to Marietta. In another part of General Sherman's East Mississippi divison, our forces have not met with the success that has attended competent commanders. General Washburne at Memphis reports that the expedition consisting of 3,000 cavalry, 5,000 infantry, and 16 pieces of artillery, sent out Xrom there under command of Gen. Sturgis, en countered a large Rebel force on the loth Inst, under command of Forrest at Guntown, on the railroad running south from Corinth, and after a severe fight, in which our loss in killed and wounded was heavy, our troops were worsted, that at the latest accounts Sturgis was at Colliersville retreating toward Mem phis. He further states that with the troops that had lately arrived Memphis is safe. General Sherman having received news of Sturgis's defeat reports that he has already made arrangements to repair the disaster and placed Gen. A. J. Smith in command, who will resume the offensive immediately. No other military intelligence has been re. ceived by this Department since my last tele gram. Edwin M. Stakton. Secretary of War.

Ms. Farnsworth, of Illinois, replied to the remarks ot his colleague (Ross,) last night, showing that the Democratic party were not the friends of the soldier as claimed. What was the course of the gentleman and his friends in regard to voting money and snpplies for the war T He thanked Qod that the manhood of the negro had been recognized at length by the nation. This they did when the uniform was placed upon them. Mr. Thayer, of Pennsylvania, followed. He characterized the sentiments of the gentleman from New York (Fernando Wood) that slavery is the best condition for the negro as demoraliz ing, Inhuman, unchristian and monstrous. Mr. Wood.?I reaffirm it. Mr. Thayer said be did not Intend to discuss a proposition so barbarous and unchristian, but to denounce it and leave it, as the record of the gentleman, to go down to posterity. Mr. Wood.?That's why I did it, and not for the fanatics ol this House. Mr. Thayer proceeded to show that there exists the right in the people to enlarge the powers of the Constitution in all things not in fringing upon the fundamental principles on which it is bas*d. He did not propose to amend the Constitution, but to allow the people an opportunity to do so. Mr. Mall'ory objected that the time lor such amendment was inopportune. TELEGRAPHIC NEWS.

Louisville, June U.?Officers just arrived from the front report that on Friday last Wheeler, with a large force of cavalry, ap peared at (Jalhoun, on the railroad between Chattanooga and the army, and seized the cars loaded with.grain, but the train coming north was notified by telegraph, and stopped at Adairsville. General A.. P. Hovey was aboard, and collected some two hundred convalescents and formed in line of battle in front of the train, and moved forward cautiously. On his arrival at the town he found that the enemy had retreated, and the train moved at its usual speed toward Resaca. When about half way an enormous torpedo exploded, hurling the locomotive six feet from the track. Four cars immediately in the rear were torn to splinters. Fortunately the troops were in a rear car, and esoaped injury. Capt. Barlow, of Logan's staff, was bruised. The train passed on in the evening to Resaca. The same night Wheeler appeared again on the road below Calhoun, and tore up a con siderable portion of the track, but it has been repaired, and the trains are again running. A gentleman who left the front on the 9th says our cavalry on a reconnoisance to the front found only a light foree of rebel cavalry, which after a severe skirmish fell back and crossed the Chattahooche. Prisoners report the whole rebel army on the south side of the river, and determined to oppose the passage by our army to the last. The river is much swol len by the late heavy rains, and no serious en* gagement can ocour until the river falls. FROM EUROPE. The Danish Troubles.
