Mr. Stanton in bis bulletins announces tbat General SLeridan's taval ry b.ul routed tbe forces of Fltihugh Lee and Clingman at Coal Harbor on Tuesday, cap- I turlog several rebel officers and killing a large portion of tbe enemy. A later despatch, dated at Belbesda church, at seven oYlock yesterday morning, states that <n the previous aftem^ n an sitae* was or?ier<d t.> be ma e on our left, at Coal Harb r. by the Sixth corp3 and the trcops under Smith, at fire o'clock P. It , Warren, Burnside and Hancock being held In readlnosp to ad vane: tn their respective fronts. The fit hi continued until after d . k. r.? citing in our tarrying the cnen y works on tbe right of the Sixth corps, and also the first line in front of Smith. The lat ter, however, ware command# 1 In the rear, which made t'jose c trried uiiUiir.b e. The enemy made repeated as Wiultf on each o[ the corps not ei ga^ed to the main as vault, but were repulsed with loss in every Instance. Beveral hu: dred prisoners were taken. No estimate of tbe casualties on either side has beeo mnda During the ni^ht t' e enemy made several assaults to Vegain they tad lost, but failed. Geuerai Grant is thus closing in upon Richmond, and driving tbe onemy witbin his fortiQcations. ' We give a mir to-day of the scene of these Important operations. The news from General Butler's army is also Interest ing A robe: Iron- clad came down tbe James rtver on WeUnet-dsy morning and attacked tbe Cnlon Monitors for upwards or two hours most vigorously. She was dually driven up tbe river. General Butler has Issued an order tbat the rebel prisoner* giptured by General Wild in bis recent engage ments on James river, aid sent by bim to Fortresa Monroe, shall be returned to Gen. Wi'd'a headquarters, to l>e dealt with in some fashion not made known. Tbe * der I* interpreted to moan some retaliation for tbe then ting of colored troops captured from General W lid. {le vy skirmishing In Butler'* front was going on Curing Monday i nd Tuesday. General Terry bad a brlak artillery doe! with tbe enemy on Monday, wbicb only teaeed at sundown. Oar gunboeta on tbe Appottomax | Were actively engaged wttb tbe enemy's torts. General Beauregard hi Ids a position, w4tb only twelve thousand men , In front of General Butler. Tbe Richmond journals are fruitful to victories Among tbe great luccssse* claimed by tbe rebel leader* Ire may cite the battle of New Hope, near Marietta, In Georgia, which is described as a great succca* for tbe rebels, but In wbicb all tb?ir dead aud woundod were toft upon the field, and Gen. Sherman's foroos actually bad advssoed several miles. Ttieso stories of victories in tbe West are circulated to give ooarage to General Lee'* army, while per contra all tbe fight* In wbicb General-l?e I* engaged are minified into vlctoriea la order to Inspire Johnston's army. To show bow far tbe battle at New Dope was a success for tbe rebel*, w* quote from the offl Clal account of it sent by General Sherman to Mr Stanton, published in our columns on Tuesday. General Sherman ?ays that 1 an ?cgagoment took place between tbe enemy and Mcrbersce'* corps, In which tbe enemy w*e driven back with a I as of two thousand five hundred killed and wounded left In our bands, and about three hundred rriaoners. General Mcl'bers n's loss not being over three hundred in all" So much for tbe great rebel victory at New Dope. C0NGBEB8 .

Tbe olty authorities were censured for uot providing means for a more Siting reception of tbe remain 3 of the late General Wadswurth and oth'i d c BSid general* of the army A committee, consisting of the Mayor and one member of tbe Chamber; one member of tbe Produce Exchange and two fi uni ibe Union Lea ;oe C ub, was appointed to tako cb trge of aucb matters In future, and co-operato with tbe military authorities in paying proper respect to deceased offloers wb?se remains may arrive in this city. Tbe Union Central Committee met last evening at their rooms, corner of Broadway and Twenty-third stroet. Tbe meeting was held with closed doors, aud tbe ofllccrs refused to give reporters any information as to tbe na ture o tbe builuoss transacted. Tbe approacbiug Balti more Convention, however, was understood to be tbe question discussed oy tho committee. Tbo number of persons in tbe public institutions of tbe city at present is G,2e>C? t decrease of four in tbe past week. The case of ex-Governor Price, or New Jersey, against S. P. Pewey and oth-rs, which has been on trial in tbe Supreme Court, circuit, btf >re .TuJge Foster, for the bst ten days, will probably be finished to day. Tbe evidence is pretty well exhausted, aud it is supposed that tbe case will be giveu to the jury this evening. Tbe jury In tbe case of Edward Hunter, tried in tbe General Sessions for ibe murder of bis wife, wore locked up ail night on Wedneed >y . and , not having agreed upon ? verdict at a late bour la t evening, Recorder Hoffman instiucted tbem to be again lockei up lor the uight. It appears that bU Honor is determined to keep tbem to gether until tbey agr ;e. The stock market opened buo ant yesterdiy, and prices advanced over the qu itat ons of tbe previous liay . Har I em Railroad shares, however, took a sudden fall of 26 per cent, aud sold down to 260. Gold was active at ? premium of 91 per cent. Government securities were firm at advanced quotations. There was no change in tbe money market. Tbere was no material change In the commercial statu* yesterday as compared with the previous day. Tbe rise In goid had tbe effect to cause holders of goods to mani fest rather more firmness; but ibis did not result in any material advance in many commodities, though some were ra'tber higher. Imported merchandise was generally quiet. Petroleum was in good demand, and prices were about lc. higher. Cotton was steady. On 'Change the breadstuff* market was stronger, and ratber better prices were paid tor wheat, corn and flour, under the upward turn in gold and light receipts, with an active business In wheat and Bour, In part for future delivery. In tbe pro visions market tbe most notable feature was the rise of l?r bbl. on mess pork, with large transactions, in part for future delivery. Beer, lard, Whiskey, tillow, &c , were without decided chango. Freights were depressed, aud lower rates were accepted Richmond? Hut Work-A General En gagement and Another I'nlon Vic tory. Victory! Victory! The despatches which we publish this morning of the military opera tions of the last two or three days around Richmond show tbat General Grant is steadily pushing the enemy back upon bis fortifications, while Lee is .desperately but vainly fighting to keep ou taide. The triple lines of earthworks, built for the security of Richmond, will do well enough if General Grant can be kept at a re spectful distance away from them; but other wise neither the city nor the army defending it' can rely upon those earthworks for a single day. Hence the manifest disinclination of General Lee to fall behind the shelter of those defences. He remembers Yicksburg, and is afraid of them; but Grant is behind him, and be has no other alternative. Sheridan's brilliant cavalry fight of Tuesday opened the way for the spirited general en gagement of Wednesday afternoon. The re : suit was a great, substantial suocess to us, and a positive and damaging defeat to the enemy. General Grant bas broken the crust of the Richmond fortifications. All the des perate night assaults of the enemy, right and left, to dislodge him from bis position were signally repulsed. Tbe ground gained be holds, and every movement results in another solid advance. At thh rate Richmond, a very few days hence, will be at tbe mercy of the siege guns of General Grant, and utterly un tenable, not only to Jeff. Davis, bis Cabinet and Congress, but to Lee and bis army. It is evident, with every step be makes, that Gen. Grant understands his superior strength and knows bow to use it; tbat he is not to be caught by rebel strategy or tactics, however cannlngly devised; nor is he to be defeated by tbat desperate rebel system of fighting which drives whole masses of men recklessly into the jaws of destruction. The great rebel army of Virginia, driven Into, is now besieged in Rich mond, and its expulsion, destruction or cap ture will soon follow, as surely m tbe setting follows tbe rising of the sun. A Financial Operation.? The Washington Republican informs us that somebody entered Secretary Chase's bedchamber the other night and took the Secretary's gold watch aud a pocketbook containing forty dollars. Then the illegitimate financial operator retired, without having awakened tbe Secretary. This little incident confirms our previous impressions upon one or two points. In tbe first place, the Secretary can be caught napping. Our Wall street operators often catch him in tbat way. ' Then be sleeps very soundly. Tbat shows that be takes tbe world easy ? too easy for tbe bead of tbe financial department of tbe government at a crisis like this, when gold is at 190. Tben the Secretary does not oare much for bis own money; for be only carries forty dollars in greenbacks about with him. The light fin gered operator made a great deal more gold than greenbacks by bis little transaction, whic% might, In fact, be called a speculation in gold. And. after all, is tbe gold operator who robbed Secretary Chute much worse, morally, than the k cold operrtom who tl*.oewlo? CoMtr rlptltm ?r Vol?attcrla|> What is lo be done towards filliug up the ranks of the army ? That the fight is to go od, j tliut louses must continue to be large whilu the conte-t hi-ts, there Is no qnestlon. A draft is about to be ordered for two or throe hundred tbousaid men, to take place, it iB said, on or about the 1st of July. This is a pru dential measure, aud showa a determination to keep tbe ball that Grant has set in motion rolling on, until, as with tbe wheel# of Jugger naut, the rebellion is eutirely crushed. Hut it is well to inquire if there is not a better and a wiser mode of securing men In this city than by a generil conscription ? We know the many evils attending it, aud the gencrnl un popularity of this process. If it can bo avoided aud the men obtained, it is tbe .part of wisdom aud good policy to adopt some other measure. We hare at hand a system organized and la full foroe up to the 1st of the present month, which has worked to admiration ? we moan the Supervisors' Volunteering and County Bounty Paying Committee. This body has performed its duty faithfully and well to the city and tbe ' county. Our quota on every call made by the government has been promptly filled, with as little exe'tement, noise or disturbance as the pews of a church are filled on a Sunday morn ing. Over twenty-two thousand men has this committee supplied tbe urmy with, at a coBt per man considerably under three hundred dollars. Does any one suppose that tbe same number of men could have been drawn, in the same space of time, from this city, through tbe harsh tenure of a conscription, without disturb ance or commotion? But, in reference to the impending call, the Board of Supervisors, it appears, hesitate to act for fear that any addition to the already large amount appropriated for tbe purpose of secur ing volunteers would not meet with public ap proval. In this we think they are greatly mistaken. No public body haa ever received more general commendation for its action than the Board of Supervisors has in this, and the successfu1. patriotic course of its committee on volunteering has been up to the very latest moment the theme of universal applause. The members of the Board greatly mistake public opinion if they suppose for one moment that our capitalists would not freely and gladly take all tbe bonds that might be issued for this holy and just cause. It Is not for the benefit of tbe present generation alone that this indebted ness is to be incurred, but for all future ones, who will reap the glory and reward even to a greater extent than ourselves of a successful termination of this contest. Hence it is that, while capitalists might not be willing to advance their money jvithout a lien upon city property as security, they would unhesitatingly take the bonds of the city and advance all the money requisite to secure the object desired. In the early move ments of the committee there was, it is true, some difficulty iu obtaining funds for this pur pose, and it was only through personal solici tation of individual members of the Board, and of Mr. Blunt and tbe Comptroller, upon the moneyed institutions of the city, as well as to individual capital sts, that the first funds were obtained. But there were two very good reasons for this hesitancy. First, the project of raising volunteers through this mode was an untried experiment ? Its effect, and even Its purpose, wero scarcely known; secondly, the j proposed loan of tbe Board of Supervisors bad ' no sanction in law, because it was yet unacted on by the Legislature. But the monoy was ob tained oven with these drawbacks, and as tbe action of tbe committee became better known, its triumphant success evident, and the bonds became legalized by the Legislature, they were taken with an avidity rarely witnessed in cor poration securities; and 60 tbey would be again. They would be taken because the object is a good one, and because tbey are among tbe very beat securities in tbe market. We trust, then, not only as a matter of policy, but of economy, the Supervisors' Committee will be allowed to go on In its good work? put far off the days of a draft, and fill our quota with volunteers. Public opinion demands and tbe public welfare requires iu Could the ques tion be brought to a test vote in this city the poople would be found to be more unani mously in favor of this mode than they were in reference to the question of the right of the soldiers to vote. We think that those who favor a draft, if there are any, are governed by motives far from patriotic, and by no means | study tbe best interests of the city. A Wat to Avoid a Rsctrrknck of tfik Ar ot'BLLKs Djfficu.ty.? Opinions and authorities differ in regard to the legal right of the gov ernment to surrender alleged criminals upon ; demand of foreign Powers unless special treaty J stipulations provide for tie same. Some jurists entertain the opinion that a sovereign Power baa such legal right under international law, even In the absence of an extradition treaty, while thia opinion Is comhatted upon very high grounds and upon very able and competent authority. It is unfortunate that these incon gruous views should hare been so long suffered to exist among nations; for, in consequence of the want of any established international rule on the subject, many irritatiog cases have arisen, 1 even to the danger of involving hostilities be tween otherwise friendly Powers. Besides this peril there is also the danger, in our own country, of creating a breach or misunder standing between the State and federal authori ties?an instance of which is fresh in the public mind in the com of the arrest and clandestine extradition to Cuba of St-nor Arguelles, who was accused of complicity in a very grave and criminal offence by the Governor General of the island, and is ere this probably undergo ing punishment for his crime. There are many good meaning citizens who are indignant at the agency of the government In this summary proceeding, and have denounced the act as a flagrant outrage upon the liberties of the people, and a wanton invasion of the right* of asylum which it is our boast we are ready to afford to the oppressed of all nations. Every citizen is rightfully jealous bf his fieedom and indig nant at any unlawful encroachment upon his personal liberty by the federal or any other authority. But In a case like that of Arguelles, where the accused is charged with being an accomplice in a crime stigmatised by nearly ?very eivillced nation as piracy? an iniquity abhorred by all Christian nations, and to sup press which all such nations are by Interna tional law religiously bound? in such oase we do not think the government oan be held morally responsible for, or accused of, a wanton Invasion either of the righte of the citi zen or of the immunities of asylum If the criminal be surrendered upon demand. But in or4f? that such disturbing Questions (ball not arise in the future, and to allay, in ft meft^we, the excitement already created, we suggest ttu*t Congress pass a general law on the subject providing that the government shall have power to surrender criminals, other than those of a political character, upon the request of the legal authorities of any recognised govern ment with whom we have no extradition treaty | covering the caso. This, we believe, would be a wise, and in our present situation a very prudent, proceeding; for the less conflicts we have between the federal and State authori ties, with their accompanying violence of partisan prejudices, the better we will be able to suppress the rebollion, and at the same time to present a front to foreign Powers which they will be likely to respect. Let Congees* adopt the suggestion, and pass the required law as soon as possible. Tax Gkkat Grant Meetinq at Union Square. ? We think It not improbable that General Grant will give ua a viotory to cele brate to-morrow at the same time with our celebration in hiB honor at Union square. But, even if the news of victory does not come so quickly as that, it cannot fail to reach us soon after the news of the great meeting reaches him. General Grant 'always takos pains to more than deserve any compliments that may be paid him. Men cannot adequately appreciate contempo rary history, or Grant's extraordinary genius would oause the world to regard him as a second Napoleon or a second Wellington. Four years ago be was a woodchopper and a tanner. Now he has saved bis country. When the war broke out there was not room for him in the Illinois militia. Now he commands all our armies. Less than four years ago he was accidentally selected to lead a regiment of raw recruits, and performed liis wonderful feat of transporting them on foot. Since then be has developed into the most consummate general of the age, a giant in fight, unrivalled In tactics, and a better stra tegist than any of the old masters of the art. This record reads like a romance, and yet it falls far short of the truth. In any other age and almost any other country than this such a man aB Grant would be worshipped as a demi god. Even our people, not unaccustomed to great men, and slow to pin their faith to any one leader, regard General Grant with an ad miration and respect inspired by no other American soldier except Washington and Jack son. We anticipate, therefore, that the meet ing to-morrow to express the nation's gratitude to Grant will be, in numbers, unanimity and enthusiasm, without a parallel. Surely the ex pression of our gratitude ought to be worthy of the unparalleled services he has rendered us. The Street Cleaning Question. ? Tbe Legis lature at its last session abolished tbe old system of cleaning the streets of tbe city, and passed a law providing that the work should be given out by contract to the lowest bidder. Tbis was ? plan to get the business out of the hands of the |City Inspector, Mr. Boole, who was faithfully executing the work, with an eye to the cleanly condition of tbe thoroughfares. It was stated that Mr. Astor once offered to assume the work for one hundred thousand dollars; but, although we believe the proposition to have been made in good faith, nothing came of it, and it has sunk into oblivion. Under the law of the Legislature advertisements were published so liciting proposals for the work, and the bids were opened yesterday by tbe Mayor. Tbe public will be astonished to learn that but two bids were put in: one by Patrick Doyle, of Brooklyn, for $575,000, and one by Daniel D. Badger, of this olty, for $500,000. Both bids were ruled out, and for the Borne reasons ? viz: informality and excess of price. It will thus be seen that, after ftll the wirepulling and underhand scheming against Mr. Boole, that gentleman has proved tbat he is not only a most capablo official, but that his system of street cleaning is 03 good, and certainly as economical for the city, as any other lona fide plftp yet submitted.

This young lady, whose friends claim tbat she oreated a marked sensation in Sao Francisco, made her debut at KftlOt Si'oos last Svenlng to a very small but very enthu siastic audience. Throughout tbe performance there was a most extraordinary mcd'.ey. Tbe shouts aod stamps of tbe voung gentlemen present were vehement, their loud praise of tbe artiiU uoceaslog, aod their condemnation of tbe lukewarmness of tbe New York public very frequent and severe. Tbe young gentlemen in queition informed those near them tbat in " Frisco," from whence tbey came, Miss Lotla could " cram the biggest theatre out," and that she would yet shine ia this city. We slocerely hope so, as the young lady? tbe " fairy wilitt," as sbe is termed la her bills? possesses undoubtedly a very extended and most versatile talent. Sbe plays tbe banjo with great aplrlt, and (lancet a breakdown In such style ns to ctute the star of the champion in that line to pale. Added to which Miss I/ma possess a <iutck and ready repartee, which stie launches at her audience with Infinite grace. She Is very ptiit', but has a good figure, and, beyond all we ever saw, pos sesses any amount of npiomt>? a graceful French word for the more vulgar English word, brasa. Id tbe comedy Jenny Ltad (Miss I<otta) appeared to less advantage than in her breakdowns, banjo playing and songs, still sbe was very sucoewsful. and the young gentlemen above referred to proved enthusiastic to tbe last, applauding with might and main, asserting tbat a ?how which was ao popular In ??Frisco" must In the end obtain favor ia New York. We do not doubt tbat such will be the result when Miss Lotta flnds her proper sphere in tbe metropolis. The performance will be re peated each evemsg until farther notice.

In my last despatch I mentioned tbe faot that the farmers' wives in this vicinity wers very cu rloos about army movements. Several Important movements have recently been made here, of which these ladies wers very snxious to know tbe why and wherefore. Tbe farmhouses bad beoome favorite loungtog places foe many of our officers and men. Tbe ladles wars always duilghted to see them, but distressingly Ignorant about military a (Mrs, 'and desired to be enlightened thereon. Our men fell into tbe trap, told everything they koewt and an they surmised or guessod at. Strange to relate, Beauregard was put In possession of tbe faots a few hours arterwarls and commenced shelling our works. This petticoat spy system was put a stop to to day. General Butler issued an order that no ons was to be al lowed to visit tbe r?rmhouses without a special permit from himself. Tho couso juences are that tbs would be lady klllori of <ur army are dlegasted, tbe military studies of the ledles brought lo an untimely end, and Ceaurcgard deprived of Information through that souroe. I should not be at ail surprised If tbe Oeneral were lo re commend a change of air for tbe ladles. Ml RSI. naSKBTKRS. Several rebel deserters hsve come within our lines to day. They had be*r\ ?ent out on picket duty and took the opportunity to desert. They were all comfortably clothed In butternut suits, snd appeared to be stool, hardy men, or, as ons of our sOldiors expressed it, "as tough as pine knots.' From soma of them? belonging lo S uth Carolina uud other regiments? I learned that Beauregard is still in oommand on our front, with nboat twelve thousand men. Tbey s?y that he has received orders from I?e to keep tbe Rlohmond and Petersburg Railroad open at all hazards. Tbe road la now in good ruoaing order, and trains are constantly passing belwnea tbs two cities. Be ore tbey left II was reported In their lines that Joe Johnston bad defeated General Sher man with a loss of six thousand men. Tee was alee said to be fighting a great battle today; but ne results had been reported It was not Beauregard's Intention to attack our position, experience having taught him that our il?nks wore loo thoroughly protected. One of tbe men I talked with said be was a Canadian, and bad been forced Into the rebel service about eighteen months slnre, Puring all that time he had beeo seeking an opportunity to escape. Their rations for some con siderable time back bad consisted of one tbtrd of a pound of bacon and thirteen onne?a of corn meal per day. N< ne of the men had any superfluous flosh on their boeee. The rebel Oenerals Hoke and II. B. Johnaon are with I'ean re gird.

The rei>orta wers heavy and rapid. from that hour nniM sunset the sounds appeared to approach gradually nearer, and were heard with greater dlsttnctneea. The telegraph reported "everything quiet" along our llnee But tbe rapid and heavy cannonading told us thai a great battle waa in progress.
