Richmond papers of the 15th inst., received in New York, contain the following: From Gen. Lee's Army, fCorrespondence Richmond Enquirer.] Abut of N ortbkbn Virginia, near Gaines' Mills, June 14 ? Grant is again in motion on our right, and our generals are making proper movements to meet him. He commenced re- ' tiring from our front last night, but tbe move- | inert was not discovered until this morning, wben our line of battle was advanced, and it : was discovered that the enemy were cone. ; Grant commenced crossing at Long%Bridge with Infantry, artillery and cavalry this morn- j inr, alter a leeble resistance on the part of the ' forces there stationed. Grant is therefore across ! the Chickahominv, and it cannot be long be- : fore a collision occurs. It is quite true that Grant has been taking ! up and burning the York River Railroad, which indicates that Grant either Intends to cross to the south side, or be intends taking the James river as a baae. This morning troops are landing from trans ports near Malvern Hill. It is impossible yet to say where onr lines are likely to be estab lished. Grant has, by this movement, secured possession of Malvern Hill. The breastworks which Grant has left were all of the most ; formidable character, and were six lines deep, i No collision of any magnitude has yet 9SCUrr?d, ? but before to-morrow'# OUfl shall I expect another battle. There was an engagement this morning near Ridley's shop, on the Charles City road, about fifteen miles below Richmond, between the encmy'B forces, consisting of infantry, artil lery, and cavalry, and a body of onr cavalry. Our cavalry, however, owing to the superior ity of the enemy's numbers, were forced back. The enemy is also said to be moving up the RiTer road. Grant has gotten no nearer Rich mond by this move. He has, however, reached the south side of the Chickahominy. Tbe War in Mississippi.

The Republican'! story yesterday of the cap ture of ? ort Darling has not only bo confirma tion, but military authorities here do not seem to anticipate that Grant will attempt to take it by assault, involving, as that would, a fearful loss of life. It occupies a formidable position on a height where its guns rake the open wheat field lead ing up to it in every direction, landward, and its water approaches are quite as susceptible of defence as experience has proved. If Grant deems its reduction a thing to be desired, he can undoubtedly reduce it, bnt he will cer tainly not assail it by storm. NO NEWS. If no news is good news, we may believe, as we certainly do, that everything is progressing well at the front, though nothing has been received from that quarter. No farther particulars confirmatory or our occupation of Petersburg has been received, but there is no doubt that from the command ing position gained by Smith, we are in a posi tion to occupy it at any moment that may be deemed desirable. FROM TH* POTOMAC FLOTILLA?A SUCCESS FUL RAID. The Iieslie arrived this morning from the lower river, and report* that some of the sea men of the flotilla and a body of colored troops have for a week past been on a raid in a quarter where it was reported there were a number of guerillas and blockade runners and thus far the expedition has been very suc cessful, capturing a large lot of cattle, horses, and some twenty.flve or thirty prisoners, among whom are some who have hitherto given us much trouble running off contra bands, Ac. The expedition is still at work, and promises Important results. A large num ber of contrabands, some of whom had been run off from Maryland have already been re covered. NAVAL CAPTURE. On the morning of the 1st of May the schr Fox, tender to the U. S. steam-sloop San Ja cinto, in lat. 26 deg. 05 min. north, and long. 83 deg.

The bill was under consideration when our report closed, and various amendments had been adopted. Hocbb.?The House passed the bill reported by Mr. Alley, from the Committee on the Post Office and Post Roads, establishing a large number of new post routes. The Speaker announced the first business to be on the passage of the bill providing for the adjudication of claims for losses sub tained in consequence of military movements. The proceedings on the bill were interrupted by Mr. Schenck, who made a report from the Committee on Conference on the disagreeing amendments to the bill increasing the pay of soldiers. All privates are to receive the same rate of pay. The report was concurred in. The House passed the bill for the appoint ment of commissioners for the adjustment of claims. The House resumed the consideration of the Senate bill to incorporate the Metropolitan (street) Bailway Company. The question pending was on agreeing to the recommenda tion of the Committee for the District of Co lumbia, striking out the words "provided no regulation shall be made excluding any person from the cars on account of color."

Ai.banY, June 17.?A fire occurred in the blacksmith shop of the Watervleft Arsenal early this morbing, and for a time, owing to the hesitation of the men to go near the fire through fear of an explosion, the main build ings were in danger of destruction but the speedy arrival of three steam engines from Troy kept the conflagration within the building where It originated, and the lose is compara- j tively trifling. LOCAL NEWS. Further of the Explosion. MOKB OK TUE BODIES RECOGNIZED?l'KKPABA T10K8 FOB INTERMENT Yesterday evening after the Jary of Inquest had returned their verdict, the remains were gathered up separately, and enveloped in a blanket, and placed in boxes, and carried to a frame building near by?fifteen charred bodies, all in a row, the other two of the seveuteeu having been identified and taken away. It has been utterly impossible as yet to obtain the names of all who were killed outright, but the following are certainly known to be among the victims, viz:?Elizabeth Branegan, resided on E street south, between 4* and 6th; Julia McCuln, 4* street, near F; Bridget Dunn, Cap itol Hill: Lizzie Brohler and Eliza Lacy, E street, between 4* and 6th. All of the above have been recognized by their friends, who identified articles of clothing, shoes,ornaments, Ac., yet remaining upon the charred* bodies. These, together with the bodies of Johanna Connor and Margaret Horan, which were re cognized last night and taken to their late homes, make in all seven that have thus far been recoenized. Maggie Yonson, who resided on 7th street, between F and G, Island, aud Ellen Eoche are among the dead, but it is impossible to identity them. Miss Bache, who was taken to the Arsenal Hospital yesterday died this morning from the effects of the injuries received. Numerous friends and relatives of defeased, this morning visited the Arsenal and strove to identify the remains of loved ones, but were unsuccessful except so far as above stated, and they were obliged to turn sorrowfully away. A large number of those who were employed in the building where the explosion ocourred, but who escaped unharmed, except- by fright, also visited the arsenal grounds this morning. To-day all werk was suspended at the Arsenal, out of respect to the memories of the deceased, except on the part of a lew of the carpenters and painters under the direction of Mr. McGinis, who are engaged in preparing the coffins. The coffins are of poplar, and are neatly stained, and srill be uniform In appearance, all ot them to be lined with mnelin and trimmed with white satin and gimp. The handles, screws, tacks, Ac., are to be silver-mounted, and the coffin-plates will oe also of plated sli ver. Early this morning a mating of the employees connected with the Arsenal was held. On motion of Mr. Birch. Mr John Dudley was upanimon-ly chosen chairman, and Mr. William H.ToppIn waaappointed secreur*. W' on taking the rh?ur; fcrieflj" *tMed the object of tbe meeting. which was to take some Action concerning the recent explosion Be auggeeted that a committee he appointed from tbe various workshops to make arrange, menta regard tar the mli<*rUon of fnnds, and to superintend the barial ol the victims of the late disaster. On motion, the following gentlemen were appointed from the different departments, to act as a coihmlUee to make all the necessary arrangement*: Clerks, Mr. F. White; saddlery department, Mr. Hickman; machinists, Mr. John Stahl; biacksmithing, Mr. Jas. Kiar, carpenters, Mr. G. Oollison; tinners, Mr. J. Birch; painters, Mr. Barry; armorers, Mr. F. Reilly; laborers, Mr. Isdell. On motion, Rttolred, That every man con nected with the Arsenal contribute one day's pay to defray expenses; which waa uiAni monsly agreed to. The committee took a recess, *and on reas sembling, Mr. White, chairman, reported the following: Messrs. Reilly, Birch and Isdett a committee to select a site in the Congressional Burying Ground for the interment of the young ladies who lost their lives. Messrs. King, St&hl and Collison to proenre hearses, appoint pall-hearers, and conduct the funeral procession. Messrs. Hickman and Barry to visit the fam ilies of the deceased and acquaint them with tbe action taken by the different departments cctacernlng the late calamity. Also, to make arrangements for their attendance at the fu neral. On motion, tbe report of the committee was unanimously adopted. Mr. Dudley suggested the propriety of some action being taken by the various departments to have a suitable monument erected to the memory of those who lost their lives in tbe Government employment. He had no doubt bnt the clerks in the different departments and citizens generally would contribute generous ly to such a noble object. On motion, as a mark of respect to the mem ory of the deceased young ladies, all labor be suspended to-day. The meeting adjourned to meet to-morrow afternoon at ? o'clock, to attend the funeral. The committee above appointed at once went to work energetically, and have perfected the arrangements for the funeral, which leaves the Arsenal at 3 o'clock precisely and moves up Four-and-a-half street, and thence along Pennsylvania avenue to the Congressional Cemetery, where a lot has been procured in the new portion near the brick wall on the west 6ide. It is expected that all the hands employed at the Arsenal will attend the fu neral, and all worklngmen and mechanics on the public works of the city are requested to attend. Mr. John Dudley has been selected as chief marshal for tbe occasion, and ail the arrange ments will be under his control and direction. In addition to the list of victims elsewhere named, killed by the explosion, we hear of the following as also dead, viz: Margaret Johnson, Susan Harris, Emma J. Baird, Emily Collins, Mary Burroughs (supposed), Lizzie Lloyd, and Ada Webster. Aa effort will be made at once to raise funds for tbe erection of a monument; and the com m'.ttee state that merchants in various sections of the city urge the erection of the monument as a proper undertaking. The committee have received sums of money for the purpose of de fraying expenses, and an anonymous sympa thizer contributed P50 in aid of the cause. IKCIDBHT8. Melissa Adams, killed, is the daughter of Edward C. Adams, huckster, Center Market. Mr. Adams and family have the general sym pathy of the community from the fact that this is the third child he has lost by violent deaths within a year or two, and singularly too, aa if in support of a popular superstition, in each case the disaster occurred on a Friday. The first was that ot a boy who accidentally shot himself on a gunning excursion; the next was that ol another boy run over by a coach and killed; and the third was that of the daughter Melissa who perished in tbe llames yesterday. Miss Gunnell is reported better to-day, and it is believed she will recover. Mrs. Scott, the widow lady who escaped badly burned from the laboratory, found her self bnried at tbe time of the explosion under the bodies of a half dozen of the girls, and never expected to emerge alive, bnt by great exertion, she managed to struggle free and escaped trom the building. Under the excite ment she was not aware that she was burned until she had reached the upper gate of the Arsenal grounds, when feeling a pain in her leg, she examined it and found it terribly blistered. Mr. John Dudley was badly burned about the hands and arms in his courageous attempts to extinguish the burning dress of one cf the sufferers. A young girl employed in the laboratory was yesterday morning dismissed for laughing and talking in the room, contrary to rules. She bewailed the fact of her dismissal to an elder. )y friend employed in the room, who tried to comfort her by saying that it would perhaps all turn out for the best, but with no thought that the events of the day would so soon make her words true. By an odd coincidence it was only yesterday morning that a letter had been received at the Arsenal acknowledging in grateful terms the receipt of 1170, contributed by the Washington Arsenal employes for the reli?f of the employes at the Alleghany Arsenal, Pittsburg, who suffered from some similar calamity not long ago. By another coincidence the despatch to the War Department announcing the explosion and fire at tbe Washington Arsenal was re ceived at the same moment with one announ cing a fire in the Watervleit Arsenal, N. Y. Orphahb'Court, Judge Puroell.?This morn ing, the first and final account of Mary H. Stone, administratrix of Aaron H.

Letters testamentary were issued to Hudson Taylor, executor of the estate el Eleazer Linds ley.
