TOE EVENING STAR W. P. WALLACH. Editor and Proprietor, WASHINGTON CITY: THURSDAY AUGUST Il? !??? LATEST FROM GRANT'S ARMY. f paRIFIC EXPLOSION AT CITY POINT ! Iw? Btrjfi Leaded with Ordnance Storet .Blown tp? Fearful Loss of Life? Be a*- Three Hundred Person Killed ?r Wounded?Twenty-seven Sack! ?' Heads, Arms and Lees Picked up on the Shore. The mail steamer Charlotte Vanderbiit, front City Point, arrived here this morning, with the malls and a few passengers. Od Tuesday morning, shortly after the mail steamer Dictator had left the wharf at City Point, a terrible explosion took place on board of two barges which were beins loaded with ordnance stores belcnging to the Sixth Corps, Opinions differ as to the canse of the explo sion, some psrties asserting that it was occa< stoned by one of the workmen dropping a box of ammunition, while others contend that it was caused by sparks of segars ol officers or men on board the boats. The loss o! lite was fearful, but when the Vanderbiit left City Point yesterday morning the exact number of killed and wonnded had not been definitely ascertained. Sixty are reported to have been killed outright, and between two and three hundred wounded. A sufficient quantity of heads, arms, and legs to fill twenty-seven sacks were picked up on the beach, and the water is said to have been literally filled with limbs and bodies In every state of dit-figurement The 20th New York militia, which is doing provost guard duty at City Point, lost five men in killed and twenty wounded. Pieces of shot and shell were blown over the corps hospitals a mile to the rear of City Point, and parties one hundred yards away from the scene of explosion were killed by the falling pieces of shell. The keel of one of the barges was thrown up a hill forty feet high, where it yet remains. Nearly all of the buildings near the wbarf were demolished, and some four hundred feet of the new warehouse was destroyed. The office of Adams' Express Company is a com plete wreck, but the employees of the company who were in the building at the time of the exploeion escaped unharmed. Many of the officers and men of the CommiB sary Department are missing and supposed to be killed, but their names have not b<?en ascer tained. Col. Babcock, of Gen. Grant's staff, was slightly worn ded: and Dr. Prentiss, ol the 7:Jd New York, had his left loot mashed. A Mr. Baxter, a su.ler, at City Point, is among the killed. Ihe explosion is said to have shaken the earth for miles around, and for a time caused the greatest consternation. Many of tne build . ings on the wbsrl at City Point are a mass of ruins, and the amount of the loss in property will be very heavy. It was a fortunate circumstance that the mail boat which arrived here yesterday morn ing bad left City Point before the explosion took place, otherwise the lo=s of life would have been greater, as she had on board a large number of ps?-s? ngers. The Vanderbiit brought up several of the wotirdfd laborers, among whom were one or two colored men. FURTHER OF THE EXPLOSION AT HTY POINT.

A letter from City Point, dated August 10th, fays, about 11 o'clock yesterday, a noise, re sembling the explosion of a magazine, was heard at headquarters of the Army of tne Po tomac, and many surmises were indulged as to the direction from which it came and its cause. Dnrir.g the afternoon word came that a boat loaded with ammunition had exploded at City Point, causing a frightful loss of life. On the correspondent of the Asseciated Press reach ing the scene of disaster, a spectacle was presented to him utterly Indescribable; buildings demolished, tents thrown down, horsrs killed, the depot building, just computed, a ma.-s of ruins; while the ground for hundreds of yards was covered with prepeity ot almost every description. The dead and wonnded had b-en extricated from 'he ruins and carried back, the former for burial and tb* latter to the hospitals. A boat loaded with various kinds of ammu nition was being unloaded by the negroes of the Quartermaster's Department, nearly ahun tired in number, and tbe ouly theory advanced ss to th cnuse ot the calamity is that a shell must have been dropped bv one of them, thus crmmonicatiiiK >ho fire to the entire mass. The noise lasted about thirty seconds, as witnesses say. and the shock was felt a long distance. On the nd>- of tbe road in front of the landing were located a Lumber of stores and offices; amot-g tbem the Post Office nnd Adams Ex preps, which were almost utterly torn down, the larger number of persons.occupying them escaping with slight bruises. In re ar of this is a steep bay-it, covered with tents on its summit, occupied chiefly by the eoloied laborers and their families. Had tbe ground been level, the loss ot life would no doubt have far exceeded that which resulted. Skells, ha'-l*, etc , struck the bank in a perfect shower, while the ground m the vicinity is actually covered with all kinds of stores, a large number of old saddles being among the debris. A beat loaded with these stores was lying t'lont'side anotner. and w-?e torn to pieces, a large portion being raised completely out of U.e waier and thrown though tbe storehouse cn tbe deck. Captain Benedict and Captain Ames, of the Commin-ary Department, were io tl.e building ai tte time, and were hnrled beneath the ruins. Alter considerable labor they were extricated frtm their perilous situation?neither being, fatally injured, though a good deal bruised. Captain Daniel D. Wiley, who was in bis tent quite a distance from the spot, was struck in tbe heao by a piece of shell and injured, tho gi not dangerously. His clerk, Mr. J W. M< Kt-e, was so s*rtousiy injured at the same tim*- that be cannot recover. A M ltaxier, citiatn, from Cold Spring, New York, was Killed. He kept a soda water stand. Privates Ansell and Metcalf, of the Fifth cavalry, JWete killed A Nergeant, named Har ris, In "the Ordnance Office, was Injured, and died soon after.

Dix, New York: The tallowing report of the success of our operations at Mobile, extracted from the Rich mond Enquirer of this morning, has just been received by this Department from Major Gen Butler : Morilb, August 8.?Friday night, Lieut. Col. Williams, commanding Fort Powell, evacuated and blew up the tart. Yesterday and to-day the enemy are shelling Fort Gaines. The peo ple of Mobile are ready for the fray. Great confidence prevails. The people are satisfied with the conduct of Lieuts. Buchanan, Maury and Burnett, of the navy. fBKCOHD (DISPATCH.] Mobile, August 8.?It is painfully humili ating to announce the shameful surrender of Fort Gaines, at half past nine o'clock this morning, by Colonel Charles Anderson, of the 21st Alabama regiment. This powerful work was provisioned for six months, and with a garrison of six hundred men. Ha communi cated with the enemy's ileet by Hag of truce, with the sanction of General Page. General Page inquired by siirnnl what his purpose was, but received no answer. His attention was attracted by stomal guns. Page repeatedly telegraphed, "Hold on to your fort." The same night he visited Fort Gaines, and found Anderson on board the Yankee fleet arranging the terms of capitulation. He left peremptory orders for Anderson on his return not to surrender the fort, and relieved him of his ccmm?nd. Fort Morgan signalled this morning, but no answer was received, except the hois ting of the Yankee flag over the rain par's of Fort Gaines Anderson's conduct is officially pronounced inexplicable and shameful. Dispatches just received lrom General Sher idan report his forces moving against the enemy up the Shenandoah. At four p. m. they were skirmishing about ten miles from Winchester. This morning Gen. Grant reported the ex plosion of an ordnance boat yesterday loaded with ammunition at City Point wharf. No details have been received. Colonel Babcock, of General Grant's staff, was slightly wounded. No operations before Atlanta of consequence are reported to-day. 1'ortions of Ston?uiaii'? command are continuing to arrive, and the total loss will not exceed one thousand. Edwin M. Stanton, Secretary of War. Fate of the Rebel Gunboats. The Navy Department last night received the following from the Kichmond Examiner of the 9th instant: "A despatch from Mobile, dated August 7, two days later thau our previous ad vices, states that the situation bad not materially changed since the enemy's victory over our iron-clads on last Friday. The Navy Department re ceived a telegram yesterday morning an nouncing that'the Morgan, the only eunboat of ourlleet which was noteither sunk, t>eachud, or captured, has succeeded in getting over the bar and reaching Mobile." Is Mobile Approachable by Water? A morning cotemporary, whose habit is to take an unfavorable view "of the situation gen erally, expresses the opionion that Farragut will not be able to capture Mobile on account of the shallowness of the water in the bay. Yet this same journal informed us yesterday that tbe Tennessee and other ships-of-wir. comprising Buchanan's ileet, were constructed atSelma. on the Alabama river, one hundred and forty miles above Mobile. If Buchanan can iloat his ships-of-war down the Alab ima river and Mobile Bay, why cannot Farragut float his up 1 Again Maury, in his disratoh announcing tbe destruction of a portion of the fleet, says: "The Morgan is safe, and will try to run tip to nig\t.r' lithe Morgan, which is" heavy iron clad, mounting five guns, crossed the shoals and reached the city, is it not reasonable to sup pose that Farragut followed in her wake ! Would the old sea dog, who has on so many occasions overcome the shoals of the Mississippi, be held at bay by the Mobile shal lows ? It is true tbe bay, for a distance of 20 miles or more from the city, will not admit ships of hea^y burthen, but we opine that tbe Union Admiral made j>r >visions for this before setting out on his enterprise. Just prior to tbe rebellion a board of com missioners was appointed by the Alabama Le gislature to deepen the harbor of Mobile. It is doubtinl if the work hfis ever been com pleted, but whether it has or not, vessels car rying three hundred and fifty ortaur hundred toss sail up without difficulty to the wharves of the city. Farragut has undoubtedly encountered nu merous artificial obstructions stretched across the bay, but there ore no natural obstructions to prevent at least his mortar boats from get lng within shelling stance of the city.?A".

The rebel accouats render it certain that we have carried the main point of oar operations there, so far as the navy is concerned. Thus, we have taken Fort Gaines, compelled the enemy to blow up Fort Powell, and obtained positions for our blockading ves sels, actually within Mobile harbor, which hermetically seais it against blockade running with perhaps one fourth the ships remaining on the station that we have been compelled to keep there (without accomplishing the object,) up to this time. Three miles from the town landings lays Dog island bar, beyond which no vessel except those of very light draft can pro ceed. The rebels have probably so increased the natural obstructions to navigation offered by this bar as to make it Impossible for the lightest draft Union gunboats to cross it except after protracted and severe labor in clearing a chan nel. Not knowing what land forces General Cauby sent to co-operate with Commodore? Farragut, speculation with reference to the capture of the city Itself would be idle. If Cauby was able to send a considerable and ef ficient force it is probable that the city is now in our bands, as its reduction and occupation depends on the action of our troops. Farragut has probably accomplished all the Navy's part of the programme, having got his vessels into positions from which he can materially aid Canby's troops in any assault upon the works immediately surrounding the city. We, however, regard the actual occupation of Mobile as being by no means a3 desirable as most of those surrounding us seem to suppose. At present we hold the harbor effectually. Were we to hold the city also, a considerable garrison weuld be required there, and much more naval co-operation than will suffice merely to keep out every blockade runner. If it be intended to send expeditions into the inte rior lrom that quarter, then we mast take and bold the city. Otherwise (according to the Richmond papers) we seem already to Have achieved all that is desirable there just now. LATEST FHOM MOBILE, The Richmond papers of yesterday say that ther loss in guns at Fort Gaines was fifty, and that they lost about six hundred prisoners there; also an immense amount of stores of all sorts. THE ST. LOUIS COUNTERFEITEHS. Three more of the St. Louis counterfeiters arrived here last night, and were committed to the Old Capitol. The gang has been completely broken up, although Col. Haker'p detectives are ou the track several other men who are known to be connected witb it. | Col. Baker has secured all the fixtures used 1 uy turer parties in counterfeiting, except one | plate which is yet to be accounted for. The presses, rties, plates and inks used by the gang, and which were seized by Col. Baker, tilled lourteer. large cases, only a portion which, however, have reached this city. There ware 11 presses taken possession of, five ol which are now at Col. Baker's office One of these presses is a very large one, weighing 3,-inO pounds. While at Col. Baker's office to-day we were shown a sample of the paper used by ttie coun terfeiters in making fifty cent currency notes. The paper is already prepared and cut into slice sufficiently large to print two impres sions at once, being about four by four and a half inches.
