June 20? 6 a. m.?Yesterday whs a very quie* day along the lines, both armies seeming de-*u roua of enjoying rest after the severe struggles of the previous days. Skirmishing and artil lery firing occurred at intervals, aad the 5th corps lost probably a hundred men during the day, their lines being so close to the enemy that it was dangerous to enter or leave them. An attack was made on the centre of the Hne about 10 o'clock last night, but was quickly repulsed. In the charge made by the 5th corps on Friday evening, the 3d brigade of Crawford's division. Colt>nel Corroll commanding, took the 39th Norih Carolina regiment prisoners, numbering about sixty men, with their officers, flags. Jro This regiment was on the right of iTcolumn who were preparing to make a charge on onr works, but were surprised and astonished at being ordered to surrender. General Crawford had two of his aides, wounded, Captain Lutor and Captain Chester, in the light of that eve ninfj. The loss of the 5th corps will reach about two thousand for the past three davs The 2d corps lost heaviest, the figures being 4,200 since Wednesday. A fiag-of-truce was sent to the enemy yesterday for the purpose of getting the dead and wounded between the works on each side, but it was refused. The negro who waB tried some days sinoa 1 or an attempt at rape upon a white woman, at Coal Harbor, has been sentenced to be hung, and this morning, at 9 a. m., is the time desig nated to execute him. He was employed in the quartermaster's department, but has ac knowledged that he belonged to the 1st colored regiment and had deserted. The Richmond Whig of the 16th has the fol lowing despatch from Beauregard to General Bragg, dated Petersburg, Jnne 10, 9.40 p. m "Sir : The enemy made two attacks on our lines this afternoon. They were repulsed with loss. We captured about 400 prisoners, in cluding 11 commissioned officers. They be long to the 1st brigade of Hancock's corps. All is quiet at this moment." It also says that communication was Inter rupted on the railroad to Petersburg, but that, alter tearing up a mile and a half of the track and pulling down three hundred yards of tel egraph wire, our men were so warmly pressed that they backed out and retreated from Port Walthall Junction, after making a stubborn fight until late in the evening. "The principal fighting occurred two miles from Chester, where we repulsed the enemy and took two lines of their breastworks. We captured a few prisoners, and some of the en. emy's dead and wounded fell Into our hands The enemy's troops were commanded by Gen Gillmore. They consisted of 2,500 all told Our force consisted of Pickett's division. Our whole forces were not very heavy." The following despatch has been received from Gen. Les: , HeadquartmSj June Excellency Jeff. Vans :?At 11 o clock last night we took the breastworks at Howlett's House. Other portions of the same line were taken The battery at Howlett's is being re-estab lisned. Five vessels have been sunk by the enemy in Trent's Reach. Ten steamers are within the Reach, behind the monitors. Some fighting occurred near Petersburg this morning, without result.

A gentleman who left Lynchburg Thursday says a Yankee force, 15,000 strong, under Hun ter, Crook, and Averill were at Forrest De pot, on the Virginia and Tennessee Central Railroad, some eight or ten miles from Lynch burg.

[Correspondence Providence Journal.] U. S. S. Oi?**oaoav j amb^'Rivs*, Virginia, June 7.?Tine It on fle?t u now M uebor hi a bay - like expansion of the river called Trent's Reach. W? are three raiiaa below Fort Dar ling, <lnd ten below Richmond. The river la y>ry tertuon*, making a little peninsula of the land on our rigfet, which la low and marehy, and overflowed at high stages of the river. This shore of course cannot be held, and is of no if it could be. The western bank consists of a series of rolling hills of considerable eleva tion, and thickly wooded. A mile is. front of na the river makes a sharp turn to the right or east, and lrom this point the bank, litre a broad lawn, rise* to the top of the hill, w"hieh is crowned with anew, large, unfinished country mansion. This house marks the point where the left flank of Beauregard'* amy rests upon the river. At . this point they have been endeavoring los' weeks to erect batteries, which might serve to annoy ns, as well as to oppose onr ascending the river. But the emphatic intimation to >clear out," which always accompanies a 15 inch shell, hfts stopped the dinging, and the batteries are yet unfinished. We can see none of the rebel army, for the laad slopes gently toward the interior, and their lines are hid by the intervening woods. Immediately on our lett, and almost abreast of us. the right flank ol Butler's army is in position. Along and in lrontof the line of the right of this army the woods have been felled, and the remainder of the mile, which separates the two lines, is broken by ravines, and quite thick with tim ber. and this intervening distance is occupied by t,he opposing pickets. So much for the po sition. Although we hare seen the enemy in no force of any magnitude, either on or near the river?that is, on the eastern bank?yet we knew there are scouting and sknlktng parties who are vigilantly watching our move ment*, and from which the rieet has suffered to a small extent in the /rapture of pickets, of sailors and marines, who were sent ashore, and, venturing too far, were surprised, anr ronnded and captured. From rebel sources we have been threatened in all sort* of ways, and by all manner of things; but the threats have resulted in no recent material manifestations. From the bed of the river, both above and be low this point, a large number of torpedoes have been taken, some made of three-eightn inch boiler iron, firmly riveted, and containing large quantities of powder, one having nine teen hundred pounds. In their exterior geom etry has been amply illustrated; for there aro spheres, cubes, and ovals, and polygons, and all other kinds of gont. Some are anchored in the river and fired by concussion; some are at tached to logs and sent floating down the river, and some, 1 presume, from their exhaustless store, are awaiting onr moving up the river. And we are hoping that the river may be suf ficiently high before long to warrant on* mov ing still further up. At the foot of Drury 'S Bluff, which is the&iteof Fort Darling.the three rebel iron-clads,Virglnia, Richmond and Fred ericksburg, are lying. The first was built in the early part of tne war, and was intended to go to sea with the rebel Merrimac, and ia ar mored with eight inches of iron, and mounts eight guns. Her draught is too great to admic of her maneuvering in the river, except at it* highest stages. The other, two are lighter draught and smaller vessels, but more vul^ nerable. We have understood that the ob structions placed in the river to oppose our ascending have been removed, to permit Ul? rebel iron-clads to come down. This, how ever, is very improbable. Opposite Drury's bluff is another high bank, called Chapin's bltlff, and this, too, has be?n and still is, c^ovued with batteries, but from which, wo are assured by recent deserters, the guns have been moved and taken to the defenses of Rich mond. Above these bluffs there is sufficient water, until you reach the lower suburbs of the city, called "Rocketts," where there is scarcely ever water enough to ?oat vessels of much draught. As Rocketta is some distance from the city proper, it is doubtful if the city could be injured by the guns of the fleet, though it is an experiment we are extremely anxious to try. IMPORTANT CORRESPONDENCE. Uxaduuartbr? Dspt. South Caboliwa, Geoboia, amd F lobida, Charleston, S. C-, June 13, 1864.?General: Five generals and forty-five field officers of the United States army, all of them prisoners of war, have been sent to this city for safe keeping. They have been turned over to Brigadier General Ripley, commanding the First Military District of tme Department, who will see that they are pro Ti ded with commodious quarters in apart of the city occupied by non-combatants, the majority of whom are women and children. It i& proper, however, that I should Inform you that it is a part of the city which has been lor many months exposed day and night to the fire of your guns.

Jonet, commanding Confed erate force*, Department of South Carolina, iieor gia, and Florida .?General?I have to acknowl edge the receipt this day of your communica tion of the 13th instant, informing me that five generals and forty-five field officers of the United States army, prisoners of war, bare been turned over by yon to Brigadier General Ripley, with instructions to see that they are provided with quarters in a part of the city occupied by non-combatants, the majority of which latter, you state, are women and chil dren. You add that you deem it proper to in form me that it is a part of the city which has been for many months exposed to the fife of our guns. Many months since, Major General Gilmere, U. S. A., notified General Beauregard, then commanding Charleston, that the city would be bombarded. This notice was given that non-combatants might be removed, and thus women and children spared from harm. Gen. Beauregard, in a communication to General Gilmore, dated August ?3, 1&63, informed him that the non-combatant population of Charleston would be removed with all poasi ble celerity. That women and children have been since retained by you in a part ot the city whicH. has been for many months exposed to tire, ie a matter decided by your own sense of .human ity. I must, however, protest against your action in thus placing defenseless prisoners of war in a position exposed to constant bombardment. It is an indefensible act of cruelty, and can be designed only to prevent the continuance of our fire upon Charleston. That city is a depot for military supplies. XC contains not merely arsenals, but also foundries and factories for the manufacture of munitions of war. In its ship-yards several armed iron clads have already been completed, while others are still upon the stocks in the course of construction. Its wharves and the banks ol the river on both sides of the city are lined with batteries. To destroy these means of continuing the war is, therefore, our object and duty. You seek to defeat this effort, not by means known to honorable warfare, but by placing unarmed and helpless prisoners under fire. I have forwarded your communication to the President, with the request that he will place in my custody an equal number of prisoners, of like grades, to be kept by me in positions ex posed to the fire of your guns, so long as you oontinue the course stated in your communi cation. I have the honor to be, very respectfully, your obedient servant, J. G. Foster, Major General Commanding. Official: D. C. Wager, A. A. G. Headquarters, June'21,lw>4.

His store was a sort of depot for smug glers to take their goods to, and for guerrillas to pnrchssa their supplies. A smuggler who had just arrived at tne store with some goods, was also captured. This individual nad taken the oath and was passing In and ont of onr lute* frequently.
