Qdc of the main objects, of General Butler's movement to thts.poiut was gained to <sy by our forces. Tbe prelimi nary operations bad already been mo?t brilliantly and succeosfolly carried out by the seizure of Bermuda Hun dred and tbe occupation of tie Pentnsula lying between tbe James and tbe Aprottoaaax riven. Its occupation, and the.- seedy and orective maimer in which it has beta fortified and rendered saf? against ail comers, have g Iven onr forces a base from wL.cb it tbreaieos both the rebel capital aol Peterabnrg ? a plaoc bo lees Important ia many potaj: of view. m* ?an.?oao otwutioks. One of the m port art objects of the movement was the destruction of the Petersburg aad Richmond railroad. I one of tbe mini trunk lines of communication between j Richmond and tbe southern portion of tbe so-called con I fedemry . The other line la that from Richmond to Dan ville on tbe southern boundary of Yirgtofca, from whence ? mid, long projected, was to connect H vr.ih one of the ?

Tb? first plan to strike an t destroy ths railroad J*st night was relinquished for rarMus good reasons, a?c a new one fors.eJ, wb ch seemed to have in it to a greater decree the el iaients of snocsas. Five brigade* were ds tailed lo piMb forward and aelxs tbe road at tbe proper point, to be tnter the command of Brigadier General Brooks, and the division was to move forward at an early boar this utornlog.

Tbe enemy h id a very favorable position, aad made a stubborn res stance to our advaaoe; but they wefe steadily driven back, with soma teas to them, aa wail as to ourselves, and, after a Sharp aalrmlab of about an haur, tbey retreated to tbclr main line, in front of tbe railroad , where they bad their lines of battle aad artillery.

Oar skirmishers were toon engaged with them along their entire line, and as our main force cur* into actios the rebels opsned Ore from tlx or elfht pieces, and Tiger oofly abetted our Hnee and the wooda In which our rs aerrea were forming. our fir* quickly became rapid from tbe infantry , and the engagement eoon assumed the character o f a battle. The wooda raag with the rattling Bra of the sxirmisbcrs sad the regular volleys of tbe bat tle line, and above all tbe din rose tbe rapid reports of the enemy's guns and tbe bursting shells. Tbe impediments which the en?my bad thrown In t be way of onr advance were one by on* successfully ov er come, and the line steadily advanced, driving the enemy slowly before it. Our right was strengthened by fresh brigades, and th? enomy gave way for a while before it; but regiment after re^mont of rebels were sent In against It, and tbe brunt of tbe battle shifted from the centre to tbe right , and raged with intense fury. Pioneers were sent forward to clear a place for artillery, and Amity Lieut. Hunt, general of artillery, succeeded In putting two of bis ride pio.es in position near our left, and opened upon the rebel batteries, which were annoying our men considerably. They were oompelled to shift their positions repeatedly by our artil lery fire, and at tlmee almost silenced. Tbe ground in front or the enemy was most unfavorable tor an attack ing party. It waa billy and traversed Irregularly by ravines, and every advantageous position was naturally seized and tenaciously held by the rebels, who were almost completely bidden by tbe dense growth of young pines, red cedars, dogwood and uuderbrush. Still onr men poshed forward, fighting sharply at every step, though falling in their tracks here and there along tbe surging line, and wresting from the rebels every strong point, one after another, until at about five o'clock tbe rebels were driven from their strongest posi tion behind the railroad embankment, which they held for a long time. The railroad waa gained and lost by tis tiro or three times ? once on account of tbo ammunition giving out, and again because thn enemy bad massed at that point and pressed us back by tbelr force of number*. Tne last time we grasped tbe prize. We held it long eoough to accomplish the object of the movement Tbe raHroad bridge crossing one of the tribu taries of tbe Appomattox river, within about seven miles of Petersburg, was set on Are and totally con sumed. and tbe railroad track was torn up and destroyed for some distance this side at tbe bridge, and tbe read rendered useless long enough for our foroes to oarry out other and more Important operations. Our success was not gained without rorao loss, but precisely bow great cannot aa yet be ascertained. Many of the killed and wounded were necessarily left on the field, near the rail road^ the enemy, massing themselves, wero able to finally drive us away before we could get all the disabled to tbe rear. or* ixuwcs are eetimated at about two hundred and fifty, or perhaps more, in killed and wounded. Among the casualties were Qeptain John A. Smith, of the Forty-serentb New York, probably mortally wounded and In the rebel bands; Lieutenant Sobloeadorf, Forty-eeventh New York Volun teers, killed, end Captain Kirby Slightly wounded. Lieu tenant Kettle, of the One Hundred and Fifteenth New York, waa wounded. Colonel Dandy, of tbe One Hundredth New York, was also slightly wounded. Other field end line officers were killed or wounded, but I could not at tbe late bour 1 left the field obtain tbelr names. I will forward a full list by the earlleet opportunity. It Is Impossible te give mlnnte details or tbe battle, as from the nature of tbe ground it waa impoesible to eee but a very small portion of the field, apd the frequent changes is the disposition snd movements of tbe force rendered it equally as difficult to detail tbem in proper order. There were repeated charges made by the rebels, accompanleJ by tbelr peculiar yell, but tbey were all re pulsed with firmness and well directed volleys of mus ketry. One or two charges made by our men caused the enemy to retire some distance, and tbe ground was occupied and doggedly held by our troops. Tbe behavior of our troops was most excellent. The sol diers of the Tenth army corns fought bravely by the side of those from tbe Eighteenth, and all earned additional laurels by tbo day's work. oKraur. hz'kmaVs oraiuTtax*. At tbe same time Ceneral Brooks' mala column started from camp a brigade, under General Heekman, with Peiger's Rhode Inland battery, moved out oa another road and fought the enemy with success, driving bim bunk upon tbe railroad. When our engagement was c'oing on a section of Belger's rifled guns maintained a fire at long range upon tbe enemy's artillery and position, and made tbe enemy's rigHt wing very uncomfortable, besides retarding In some degree tbe arrival of tbelr re ! Isforcements, which they poured In from Petersburg after tbe fight began. 1 have no particulars of <;eoer?i Hecx man's operations further than the above. a mrxwinr ssooimoisejtiici! a*o fight.

THE ENTHTJ8IABH IN WASHINGTON Congratulatory Visit to the Whit* House? Speech of the Prealdemt, &c. Wahhingtoi* , May 9, ISM. The city is almost wild to-night with eotbaslaem oyer tbe great victory achieved by the Army of the Potomac over the rebel army under General Lee. Nothing else is thought or spoken of, and - tbe people are rejoicing to gather and mutual congratulations are exchanged over the success which baa thus far crowned the combined movements or tbe armlee of the republic under their glorious chieftain , Lieutenant General Grant. This evening the feelings of tbe people found vent In a congratulatory visit to tbe President. A procession was lormed in front of Willard'a Hotel about half-past eight tbls evening, heeled by tbe excellent hand of tbe Twenty seventh Michigan Regiment, who happened to be In the city, and who volunteered their services for the occa sion, and proceeded to the White House After several patriotic airs hud been performed by the band, In re sponse to tbe cheers end cells of tbe multitude assembled tbe President came forward, and was Introduced to the people by Senator Foster, of Connecticut. Be returned his than Its for tbe compliment paid him, end said that we had won e greet victory, for which we should return thanks to the Almighty, who had smiled upon and blessed our efforts, and also to Geo. Grant end his brave officers end soldiers, to whom heroism end sacrifices we were indebted, uader Providence, for tbls triumph. We had woo e greet victory, but we must not be prematurely sanguine, for although much had been done, there was e great deal of work yet to do before the rebellion could be suppressed and tbe Union restored. There was one thing which he desired to say to them, and that was, tAat wMle General Grant had mrl *m'\ stubborn resistance, he had not been forced back in the sftgh'eM d-yree from the line upm uihteh he had ttaitrd; and was now moving forward upon Che line which he had marked out brfore (he movement commenced. He had every confidence in General Grant, and believed that be won Id accomplish tbe great work which he had yet te do. Enthusiastic cheers wore given for the President, Gen eral Grant, General Mood) and oar breve armies, after which tbe crowd retired in a quiet and orderly manner. Tbe greatest anxiety exists to hear who the killed end wounded are, end tbeoffl:es of tbe different New York newspapers are visited by numbers of anxious Inquirers, who have frleeds and relatives In tbe army which baa been engaged in tbe series of hard fought battles. Tbe unfortunate capture of the very complole lists prepared by the army correspondents of the Hkrald, comprising over seven thousand James, is very much to be regret ted, as otberjrtW'tbis anxiety could be to a greet extent relief.
