A 8ALAMANDER. tProm the Biook >n Daily Eagle. May 19 [ ere are a treat many wondeiful things being done in and uround New York just now by the spirits and mnstcisns, but these manifestations are of no praeticsl utility, except to the exhibit ors, wh' are reaping a rich harvest from the ere 1 ulous. Something that is at once carious and u-eful has. however, been brought to public no tice. A Signor Buono Core has invented a flre Sroof su>t. in which he can walk into a baruing uilding witb tlames plaving around hiin and feal no inconvenience This discovery m?y be of great service. It i? not exiiecteil that every one will at once oTder a salamander outfit, and keep it in the bouse in case of tire, bnt it wit! he a good thing for each tire com pan v to be provided witti a suit, which will enable tnc wearer to enter burning building", ssve property, and assiiit materially in extinguishing tires. [From tbe Evening Express, M*T 2t).] Have we a sa'amander among us/ If bv a sala mander is meant a living being which can walk unharmed, like the three young uieu in the Scrip ture story, through a fiery furnace, and come out unscathed, we think Pitnor Buono Oore is fairly entitli d to the appellation, albeit the common no tion 'hat the little reptile from which be de rives it can do the tike with impunity is a fabu ous idea. A few days ago tbe fcignor invited a party to go up to Jones's Wood ami witness a de uien^rat ion of bis right to bo considered a mod ern Abedneao. He entered an iron cage around, over and un?n which an intensely hot fire was burning all the while, and made himself qnito at home'herein, for some space. Nor did he seem to care more for the exposure than if he were waiving like Adam in Ed?p. in a garden ia the cool of the evening. He will irive his first public exhibition at Jones's Wood next Wednesday af ternoon. It certainly is a very curious feat. (From the Saturday Courier.

FROM JAMES RIVER. Spirited Engagement with the Ewm| Victery of the Union F?rfe??Capture of bun* and Prisoners. Bermuda Humdrbt>, July 27, via Fortrb*?s Mow rub, July 28?An important movemeutls in progress from this point, and this moralux. whilst our troops were crowing the .tames riv?*r to the north side, on two pontoon briug"!*, a rebel force came down and attacked our men on the banks, before having had time to organ ize. A spirited engagement took place, and the enemy were driven back to their entrench ments. Our troops still arriving, organized and attacked the rebel works, carry ing tnetn and capturing four gnns. marked "captured from the Yankees at Drewry's Bluff." We also captured many prisoners. The enemy were dually driven irom their po sition into the roads far beyond, where skir mishing continued when our informant left The gunboats were on hand and rendered val uable assistance in covering the landing o! our troops. ! The gnns captured are no doubt the same that were captured from Capt. Belger's battery by the Tebels on the l?th ol May. These guns are now at City Point. ANOTHER ACCOUNT. General (.rant well Pleased. A letter from the Army of the Potomac, dated July 2d, ssys: ine arrival of some troops in the vicinity of Bermuda Hnndred, a day or two ago, attracted H e attention of tbe enemy, and caused them to believe that an advance on Richmond by way ot Malvern Hill was intended. A lorce, consisting of Reeshau's division and Longstreet's corps, and Wilcox's division of Hill's corps, was immediately withdrawn ircm the vicinity of Petersburg, and sent down to check the movement. To connteract this movement on the part of the enemy, the 2d corps was detached and sent across the James river, and, at 6# o'clock yesterday morning, the advance met the rebel skirmishers in uu open field, opposite Jones' Neck. Their battery was in position at the edge of tbe woods on "the further side of the Held. A long line of skirmishers was throwu out at once from our force, who soon drove the rebels to their oreastworks, where they were kept hotly engaged while a brigade of the lot division moved around on the leftol tlie en uny's line, ard getting on tbe lett of their flank, charged them, driving the rebels from their gnns into the woods, capturing fifty or sixty prisoners and fonr guns, and a quantity of ?h>all arms. The enemy tell back on their reinforcements, who occupied some strong works built there some two years ago. Oar troop* followed, taking up a position in fiontand on their flank, and before this reaches yon the entire party, it was hoptd, would be captnred or routed. The gnns taken were four twenty-pound Parrotts, marked "May 2!', IS64, near Rich mond," and were the snme which had been captured from the 13th corps at Drewry's Bind last May. Our loss was only about a half dozen wound* ed, none reported seriously. Gen. Grant rode to the front in the after noon, arid, in company with Hanc >ck, re viewed the position the enemy had taken. He seemed well pleased with the morning's oper aticns. Gen. Foster's command had a lively time with the enemy yesterday at this place, but b'8 force being weak, he fell back some half a mile to a stronger position, which he held until the arrival of the 2d corps. He lost 10 or 5o men wourded during the day. An attack was expected on Gen. Warren 8 front yesterday, hut it was not made. Picket and artillery firing is indulged in to the usual extent, and was tharper iu front of the I8ih corps yesterday than formerly. A Conflict at Hand. [Correspondence of the New York Tribnne ] City Point, July 27, lu a m.?I think I am safe in saying that the ball is about opening? that the grand conflict is at t and. Ileavv cannonading and musketry firing took place this morning all alone the lines, partic uiarly in General Butler's .Department, aLd up, and on both sides of James river. A strong prtssure was made on Gen. Butler's line jesUrday, and the pressure is thns being letiijned this mornicg. Tbue were heav y movements of entire araiy corps last night, the nature ot which it may be premature to definitely mention. Tbe wildest enthusiasm and the highest ex pect ations prevail here. Tnere need be no fear lor the result when the tug of war comes. The army i3 in magnificent condition. 1 l?ave no doubt but that another day's dis patch will tring you details of a moct gratify ing character. The Rehef Loss. fCorrespodence of the Vew York Times.] Thursday, July 2*.?Information has been received announcing that on Thursday a very considerable engagement occurred on the north bank of the James river, between a large force ot tbe enemy and a portion of Gen. Butl?r'a army, in which the rebels were defeated with severe loss, including the capture of four pieces of arnllery. FROM THE SOUTHWEST. Fighting near Helena?Discovery of a New Rebel Battery. Mbmphib, July 29.?Apparently well autheu tlcat* d reports from Helena say that an expe dition, consisting of a negra regiment, a portion of the 15th Illinois cavalry, and a section ol a battery left that place on Monday morniag in tbe direction ot White river. When near Nelson, eighteen miles out, they fntcuntered a formidable rebel force, under Dobbins, and, after a short fight, were obliged to retire with a loss of two killed and fourteen wounded. Colonel Brooks, of the colored regi ment, and a captain of the artillery, are re ported among the killed. The rebels pursued the expedition to within nine miles of Helena, where onr troops made a stand, and a sharp fight was going on when the informant left. The remainder of the 15th cavalry and other reinforcements are being sent rapidly forward from Helena. Gen. Washbnrne has issued an order that all persons in West Tennessee and MUsis&lppi having cotton will be permitted to bring it to Memphis and store it in the bands of tbe Gov ernment Quartermaster, sunject to such dis position as may hereafter be made, the Q,uar termaster giving a receipt therefor.

It is expected she will be stationed as the receiving-ship at Nor folk. Fort Surnfer is undergoing another destruc tive bombardment from onr batteries and fleet. The firing is very slow, but accurate, and serl ous damage has resulted to some of the strong est portions of tbe fort. The fireon Charleston is also kept up. The ^?ork at erecting a residence for the rebel prisoners on Morris Island is in progress, though the rebels aanoy tbe workmen la the extent of their ability by shelling the buildings. Gen.

Gen. Hood has signalized liis acceptance ol the command ol the Army of Tennessee w.tb a niiliiant victory, and juetined his s?lec ticn by success, the highest evidence of ir? propriety. The tide has turned, the amy baa taced aboht, and the?;rafn{:y of aavauce takes the place over ih.it ct retreat. Tl.e initjative ol attack has at last been taken by our army, and its prestige and r.ioritf. wrested liom the ect my. Oeo. Hood hae turned npon tbe enemy, and be? n sacceaaful.

Oen. Hood was known to be a man ever ready to fight, and his appointment was regarded as praci. cal orders to tan? no steps backward. . It was leit that he might ne ueieated, but i was believed that he would not retreat with out try ing the ordeal of La'tie. He has juati. li.dtte confidence of the President, lie has lou^hta battio v.lttun the first week of his command, and wou an important victory. Of the completeness ot thU victory, at the time of writing, i othii g is known; but the army in now, i otwithstanding it? lo*see, much strong er than before it measured strength with us ad vereary. Ihe attack was made, not received tiie enemy w ere driven, not repulsed. There terms are new to be app.ied to the battles of the Army of Tennessee. General Hood, we be lieve, is no' the man to rest satisfied with even attacking and drivinc the enemy. He will fol low up his advantages, and now, that he has broken up the old ptlicy of that army, he will, he must precs on, and cease not to drive the enemy back, and eventually out of Georgia.
