Inquirer. 1 Headquarters Army op the Potomac June 21, 7 a. m?Yesterday was quiet, that is! there was r.o assaults and no line of battle firing; but our batteries kept exchanging occa sional compliments with those of the enemv and along the picket line the SDiteful whia of the minie was a very familiar sound, enough so assure one that two large armies lay in close proximity. The nnmber of casualties in this skirmishing has been rather large. The relative positions ofour own and the re bel army appear to be nearly the same as at the several points where they have lain for a time in opposing lines of battle from the Ra pidan hither. Both occupy similar lines of in trenchments, within short rifle range of each other, but as it devolves on us to attack, the enemy derives the greates advantage from his works. One unfamiliar with military operations can hardly lorm a conception of the value of mere impromptu earthworks; rifle-pits, snch as can be constructed in a single night. But troops who have had to charge them can fully appre ciate their importance as parts of a defensive system. Every attack upon such works, unless it is a surprise, costs hundreds or thousands of lives, and men ensconced behind them can successfully hold at bay largely superior num bers. These impromptn works are all that now enable the rebel army to keep us out of Petersburg. The strong fortifications taken by the advance of our army, on the evening of the 15th, were the regular defenses of the place, and, had they been fully manned, conld only have been taken by regular siege ap proaches, requiring protracted labors. That we gained possession of them so easily was an immense advantage, and is the more satisfac tory because it is an unequivocal strategic vic tory over the wily rebel commander, to whom it must be extremely mortifying. He was, for once at least, held in uncertainty as to our movements long enough to enable us to beat him In point of time?an achievement which the chivalry ought to consider a decided feat, so confident have they always felt in his vigilance and promptness. The fact that the negro troops or the 18th corps had the moetim per tan t share in the capture of these works has won for dark skins a much higher respect than they have hitherto had from the soldiers of the Army of the Potomac; and our artillerymen, who, without a contest, have planted their gnns upon the captured heights in sight of the spires of Petersburg, speak in warmly appre ciative tones of the service rendered them. Our line Is nearly the same as when 1 last de scribed its position. I may add that a rebel fort (Fort Clinton) on the other side of the Ap Scmattox, which bears upon our position hen, i within range of Fort Springfield, in Ohm! Butler's line of fortifications, and is command ed by it. . iy The Mormons in Utah have resolved to oat a canal from the Provo river, oommeacing at the month of the canon, about smiles above Provo City, by way of Pleasant Grove and American Fork cities, to Lehi. It will afford the first-named settlement water enough lor the crops. Brooklyn is so overrun with canker worms that Beecher took occasion a fhw Sundays ago to preach a sermon upon the subject, and in his characteristic way to deduce some useful moral lsssons from their presence. LOCAL WEW?. I*forta>t City I mrROv events.? The following interesting information is obtained from William Forty th, Esq , our excellent sar Tejror: Thomas El&gden has subdivided several ori ginal lota of land into suitable building sites, fronting on N street south and 1st street east First street is on? of the leading thorough. fares from the Nary-Yard and Capitol Hill to 6th street w harl and the Arsenal grounds. Ob square 210, A. P. Douglas has purchased the old scbool.house building, out of Riggs' subdivision, and Intends to build thereon two beautiful cottages. On the Island, several of the alleys have been surveyed, and their graduations determined and fixed for the perfect drainage, grading and paving the squrrea through which they are lo cated. The "Printing Office Square,'' wtmh has beeu soch a nuisance, is now thoroughly drained, graded and paved. Arsntal.?Extensive improvements are in progress in and around this important Go vern ment station. Surveys are completed for a subs tantial sea wall along the west front. It is also contemplated to open "James creek" canal as far at the Arsenal grounds extended. This will remove the malaria which has for many years threatened that part of the city wtth pes tilence, and be of Incalculable benefit to the Arsenal. Surveys have been made tor many dwelling h( uses on Square No. OSi*, fronting East Capi tol street, lothard 11th streets east, and Bstreet south. These housea are for the "Philadelphia Company." Ninth street west is paved and graded, and also B street north, from Seventh to Ninth, streets, with suitable sewers and perfect drain age. B street north, between 9th and l.'ith streets west, is now thoroughly graded and graveled. That street was so much used by (TOverninent teams that it was cnt in many places three or four feet deep, rendering it Impossible to do business along the whole canal line of wharf age. Great credit Is awarded to the Mayor for pressing an improvement so expensive to the city. Sewers six feet broad, on flih street, from I to L,are being continued, with suitable drops and traps. Similar improvements also on 7th street, between H and L streets north. When these are completed, the cross gutters will be abol ished, and through street grades established. In 9th street north the sewer will be con tinned from Massachusetts avenue to L street north, thence along L street noith to the center of the square, for the purpose of draining the alleys in Square 269, which have been a nui sance for many years.

Some of Emily's handkerchiefs had been marked with the letters "E. M.," and at Mrs. B.'s instance witness took out the "M.," and put in the "B." Mrs. Brown said that Emily's father was Dr. Miller, of Baltimore, bnt that she intended that Emily should pass by the name of Brown at school. Ou cross examination, which was continued at great length, the witness refused to tell her age. R. II.
