[Correspondence Associated Press.J HSADQCAr-TBRS ARMY OF THB POTOMACi August 16.?Everything remains quiet in front Of Petersburg. The enemy, the last two nights, have been feeling oar line on the left, but nothing more than skirmishing between the pickets has taken place. The two telegraph operators, Flynn and Hambrigiit, on duty at Burnside's headquar ters, who have been on trial during the past week, charged with making known the sub stance of despatches to others than those to whom they were addressed, were found not guilty by the Court. General Meade, however, deeming them to have been guilty of disobedi ence of orders and breach of trust, has ordered them to be sent beyond the limits of the army, ard forbidden to return. Deserters continue to arrive in small squads; a iieuteLant and twelve men reached here yes terday. They tell the usual stories of demor alization and the prospect of speedy destruc tion of the rebel army. Thousands they say, are leaving on account of not receiving any pay, while their families are starving, and they are determined to stay in service no long er under any circumstances. Gen. Park is now in command of the Ninth Armv Corps. Additional particulars have been received of the action ot Sunday. Part of the 2d and part of the 10th corps engaged the enemy in the afternoon, near Deep Bottom. The 10th, under General Birney, took part of a liDe of works, with four eight-inch brass guns and a number of prisoners. His loss was small. The enemy fell back to a strong position. The 2d division of the 2d corps was drawn up in line of battle and advanced about a mile beyond where Hancock captured the four guns two weeks ago. Here the 1st brigade, Colonel Macy commanding, took tho load and charged across a corn-field, over a hill, and down into a ravine, where they eame to a swamp, with ; a stream on the other side, the ground covered with impenetrable brush on the margins. During all this time they were exposed to a heavy fire from the rebel artillery, which did & good deal of damage. It was found impossi- j ble to cross the ravine, and the men were halt- ! el and lay concealed as well as possible until ! dark, when they were withdrewn. Colonel Macy had his horse shot under him, and mounting General Barlow's horse, the animal became unmanageable, and finally fal- , ling on the Colonel, badly bruised him. Colonel Macy was wounded in the Wilder- j ness, and had returned to the field only a day , or two before. The division lost at least three hundred men i in the engegement. The 1st and 3d divisions, which were in support, lost about two hundred and fifty from the effects of the rebel artillery. The wounded were all brought off, and are nearly all being cared for at City Point. Lieut. Colonel Warren, 36th Wisconsin, lost 1 bis left arm, while gallantly leadiag his regi- , ment in charge. Maj. W. H. Hamilton, C6th Wisconsin, was severely wounded in the face, and Capt. Lind- J ley, of the same regiment killed. Sergeant Ball, 36th Wisconsin, killed, and about twelve wounded In that regiment. Sergeant Fuchs, 36th Wisconsin, color bear er, was badly wounded. This is the third time he has been wounded in the present campaign. Lieut. TeUey, 125th N. Y., and Lieut. Wheel house, 2d N. Y. artillery, wounded. Uur troops still hold their position in front of the enemy's works, which are very strong and well defended, owing to the nature of the . country in the vicinity. General Burnside at Providence. Providbncb, R. I., August 16. ?Major Gen eral Burnside is in town on leave of absence. He has not been relieved of his command. The Court of Inquiry, without coming to any decision, adjourned on account of the neces sary abstnce of some of its members. The Situation. Whether we look at Atlanta, Mobile, or Petersburg, the whole aspect of the situation Is just now exceedingly favorable. The ofiical announcement of the results of Farragut's vic tory equals everv expectation formed by the first advices of the victory, and proclaims the old Admiral as able and as brave as he has always been modest. At Petersburg Grant seems to have found a solution for the vexatious problem that the recent failure of his assault on the rebel works has thrust upon him. He has discovered that the city can be flanked, and close on the discovery eame the fim steps of its execution. Hancock has succeeded in ascend ing the James river, and driving the rebel troops out of Dutch Gap. The river at this point makes a U-shaped berd. The gap joins the upper portion of the figure, and makes a small island called Farrar's Island. In a straight line this position is about eight miles from City Point; but by the river, which is here, as all who have sailed upon it know, peculiarly crooked, and in some places almost doubled upon itself, it is, perhaps, eighteen miles. From Fort Darling it is distant about eight miles; from Richmond fourteen miles, by water. The expedition seems to us to be intended to cut off communication between Petersburg and Bichmond. The railropd connecting the citie3 is scarcely five mile-; from the Gap, and if,as is claimed, our force is respectable in numbers, and has taken the rebel^ by surprise, we see no difficulty in isolating Lee from the city which he has for four years so pertinaciously defend ed. The experience of the war has, however, taught us not to hope or predicate too much. The rebels in the outset may have been sur prised, but it is likely that preparations were immediately made for our reception, and to keep the railroad intact. Troops could easily be forwarded from Richmond or Petersburg to hold the road. Lee's celerity of movement in the last assault strengthens this supposition. Hancock cannot, therefore, proceed without fighting, but-his presence will divert large bo dies of troops from Petersburg, aid jeopardize it, for Grant still rematns in front, and his known ability may enable him to grasp a vic tory despite the efforts of the enemy.?Philadel phia rrett. KTThe following dispatch from Mr. Chase, which was received subsequently to the con vention in the First Congressional District of Ohio, is published as an act of justice to that distinguished citizen, who, it will be seen,is not responsible for the use made of his name on that occasion; Boston, August 1.

From Sherman's Armv.?Pretty heavy fighting occurred on last Saturday and Sun day, and Monday, at the front, but no general battle took place. The advantages were deci dedly in our favor.

We think it probable, from information re ceived from a private correspondent in New Orleans, that a land attack upon the rear of mobile formed a part of the plan of operations against the city and bay; and that it is expected our forces will be able to capture not only tne city but also the troops defending it The latest mail from New Orleans is only to the 7th, and the resnlt of snch aJiMd tnove mentconld not at that time be known. i ne news from rebel sources is not any later. uie latest Mobile despatch in the Richmond jour nals which hare come to hand being dated tne 7th. We must therefore wait a a few days to know what the army ha* done. It will be remembered that some a force was sent to Pensacola, from which point it marched inland, for the 1 P"rPf??*?' was said, of meeting and succoring if neces sary one of General Sherman's cavalry ezpedi* tions Now we have reason to believe that the army at pensacola was strongly and suddenly reinforced in the first days of August, and was prepared for a movement against the rear of Mobile, to co-operate with another force, which set out from New Orleans by way of Lake pontchartrain not many hours before Farragut began his attack. This latter body would ot course approach Mobile from the west. The city which is thus threatened lies about midway between Pensacola and Mississippi City, the two points of departure for the co operative land troops. These two points are each less than fifty miles by sea from the en trance of Mobile Bay- while the overland march to the rear of the city cannot be lesi than one hundred mile3, through a difficult country. We need not expect to hear of land operations, therefore, for some days to come. If, as is not unlikely, General Canby should strike the railroad and river some distance north of Mobile, in order to destroy the one and command the other, and thus cut off tbe city from relief, then we may not hear of decisive operations for a week, or even a fort night. The rebel force defending Mobile cannot be great; the whole country has been swept clean of soldiers to reinforce Hood; and It is a no ticeable fact that General Grant did not ven ture to order operations against Mobile until the rebelB had fully committed themselves to the defence of Atlanta. It is impossible now for Hood to send away a part of his army to defend Mobile; and, unless some unforeseen obstacle Interferes, the city is likely to be ours within a few days.?JV. Y. Evening Post. General Butler's Canal. A letter from the Army of the Potomac says: For some time past Major General Butler has been conning over a brilliant -scheme wherewith to annoy the enemy, and advance the Union interest in this region matariaily. His plan contemplated nothing le3s than the construction of a canal at what has hitherto been known as Dutch Gap?hereafter to be known as Butler's Gap?in* the dircct face of the enemy, which, when done, should, among other results, by reason of its sltuat'on, com pel the rebels to extend their line of defence a distance of lour miles?that Is to say, the dis tance saved to us by the digging of the canal, which is to be one hundred anti forty yards in length, is seven miles of water course In the James river. Seme four days since the proper details of men and officers were made for this important and hazardous work, and these men were en couraged to its performance by ext?*a induce ments, and placed under the general command of Major Ludlow, of the departmental staff. The work proceeded handsomely for three days, during the last of which the enemy dis covered our operaiions, and made instant preparation to open fire, which the result will show to have been an advantageous oue for them, though Ludlow nobly and successfully held his position, still holds it, and will con tinue to hold it until his appointed work is ac complished. . At 5 o'clock yesterday morning two Rebel rams, believed to be the Virginia and the Rich mond, though some think*one of them was the Lady Davis, appeared at Dutch Gap, in the James river. The James at this point lorms a promontory, which is very narrow at its apex. The shape of this promontory is in the form of a long tongue, and, verging to the northward and westward makes another turn, which forms a point similar to the first, east by north. Hence the river bends yet again, and forms a third angle running northwest. Under cover of this angle completely and literally shel tered from our gunboats, lay the two Rebel rams. Their position was such as, taken in connection with the Howlett House battery of the enemy, to subject our forces to a severe enfilading fire, which was borne throughout the day with manly fortitude by our men. The successful construction of the canal, of which there can be no doubt, will, It is alleged, enable our gunboats to wholly overcome the formidable obstructions in the James river, and possibly ultimately be the means of their engaging Fort Darling and other rebel strongly fortified places adjacent to Richmond, and per haps, before the end comes, operate largely in the reduction of the rebel capital Itself. These are glowing anticipations; but nevertheless they are capable of realization by patient and indulgent waiting for. Any one of these results, added to the necessity imposed upon the enemy of lengthening hi9 line of defense a distance of four miles, requiring several thou sands of men to man this prolongation of their lines, will certainly be regarded as adequate compensation for the time, labor and men be stowed upon the accomplishment of the under taking. Edward A. Pollard.?This individual, formerly one of the editors of the Richmond Examiner, and who was some months since taken prisoner on the blockade runner Grey hound, brought to this port and subsequently committed to Fort Warren, was discharged from the fort last Friday. It Is said that he has tyen exchanged for some Federal prisoner In Richmond, and that he is on his parole to go to the city of Brooklyn, N. Y., where he is to report regularly to the provost marshal. Previous to leaving the fort, Pollard took the oath, swearing not to make any revelations, either verbal or written, and to keep his parole strictly and truly, &c.

Arrival of Wounded?Our Forces Supposed to be Advancing?Butler's Canal at Oatcta Gap?Indications of Active Operations on Land and Water. Tlie mail steamer John Brooks, Capt. Ben der, arrived from City Point at about 5 o'clock thfs morning, with the mails from the army and passengers, among them over twenty rebel prisoners, including one or two commissioned officers and several refugees. The hospital steamer State of Maine, Capt. John Borden, which left City Point yesterday afternoon, arrived here about noon with three hundred wounded on board, mo3t of whom belong to the 1st brigade, 2d division of Han cock's corps, wounded in the light on Sunday morning at Deep Bottom. Among them are nineteen officers, including Col. G. W. Macy, 2oth Massachusetts, and Lieut. Col. C. E. Warner, 36th Wisconsin. Most of these were wounded early in the ac tion, and were immediately brought off. Our forces, at last accounts, held the position taken, and were to have made an assault on the enemy's strong works in front of them on Mon day, and from the firing heard yesterday it was believed that we were advancing. The rebels are persistently attempting, by an enfilading fire from Howlett's Landing and their gun-boats, to stop the laborers engaged in cutting the canal across Dutch Gap, where by a distance of over seven miles will be saved in going up the James river, and the passage of a battery on the end of the peninsula will be avoided, but the work still goes bravely on, and it is expected that the water will be let into it sometime this week. The workmen have to cut their way through a bank over fifty feet high and the canal we understand is about 18 feet deep, which will float the largest vessels now on James river. It is contemplated that instead of sending the iron-clads to Norfolk or other points hereafter when they are disabled, to repair them up the river and werkmen are being engaged to go up and keep themselves ready lor work. THE PIRATE 8EMMES AND THE WRIGHT CAP MACHINE. There has been recently published in Eng land an account of "The Cruise of the Alabama and Sumter, from the Private Journals and other Papers of Commander R. Semmes, C. S. N." This publication has a biographical sketch of the pirate Semmes, giving the par ticulars of his desertion of his trust as a com mander in the U. S. Navy and member of the Light House Board. After being formally en gaged in the service of the enemy, (and not till then,) he resigned his commission in the U. S. service. ? He was then deputed by Jefferson Davis to 'return to the Northern States and make large purchaees and contracts for machinery and munitions, or for the manufacture of arms and munitions of war; and to obtain cannon and musket powder, the latter of the coarsest grain, and to engage with a certain proprietor of powder mills for the embarkment of a pow der mill at some point in the limits of our ter ritory.' He was also informed that at the Arsenal at Washington he would find an ar tificer named Wright, who had brought the cip machine to a high degree of efficiency, and who might be induced to furnish a machine."' We do not know what success Semmes had in other quarters in pursuance of his mission, but he certainly did not get much aid from our fellow-townsman, the ingenious inventor of the cap machine. This machine, it is well known, turns oil'work with great rapidity and perfection, and it is not strange that the Con federate leaders should have been anxious to secure it and the serivces of ita inventor for their benefit. There is quite an interesting little chapter connected with their efforts to secure the cap machine, and it serves to show how early and how systematically theycommenced their plans to betray their country. Semmes. who was then residing in the First Ward, actually did call on Mr. Wright on the 25th of February, 1^61, and urged Mr. W. to enter into an arrange ment with him to furnish a cap machine. Mr. Wright positively deelined and Semmes reluctantly abandoned the attempt. It would seem that the rebel leaders at Rich mond getting solicitous ii regard to the cap machine and not hearing from their agent Semmes, In regard to the matter, they conclu ??d toadclressMj. Wright directly, and on the 2d of May, 1F61, he received the following Mr. U. Wright .?If you will come here and make us a cap machine, the state will give you goou pay and a premium, which will satisfy you. If you will say exactly what will in duce you to come, I will telegraph you back under a feigned name of Roswell Chartor, and my name you may call John R.Richardson. Yonrs respectfully, C. Dimmock, Col.of Ordnance. Richmond, J'a., April 27,1S61. This letter Mr. Wright never answered, but he promptly laid it before Colonel Ramsay, then commandant at the Arsenal, by whom it w. 3 shown to the War Department. Thus ended the rebel attempt to secure the famous cap machine Mr. Wright, who is master ma chinist at the Washington Arsenal, has been in Government service for twenty-four years. His course in the matters referred to affords a noble contrast to that of the Semmes' school, who turned and stung the paternal Govern ment that bad cherished them. ESCAPE OF PRISONERS.
