Hancock ?as withdrawn under cover o darkness on Friday night, gBd his whole corps moved, bv a forced march, to the >etarsburg front, In Bumside's rear, before day Saturday morning. At ten minutes before tlve Mm mitt exploded, blowing the rebol fort to atoms and aaguiflng between one and two hundred of the Twenty ?aooad South Carolina regiment In its blackened, smok yawning debris. But few of this number escaped. 4a assault was subsequently made, which succeeded In awrying a light line of breastworks in rear of the fcrt. The assaulting column attempted to^atorm the only asasaintng line, on the crest of the hill, a fow rods further ?, aad wero bloodily and terribly repulaed. The negro tegmenta In front literally ran over the white troops In toatar rear In their frantic attempts to en cape. We ocoupy l? day substantially tbt same ground that we did tbe Impart of ?tt week. Owing to the Importance attached to the matter by the fN? and people of the North, Justice requires I he aUte taat that no pro.ect ever promised more favorablo re Every ooticelvnbis precautionary measure wss > to insure suoceas, and officers are alike surprised asd mortified at oar failure to carry the enemy's entire toe, and possess ouraslvea of Petersburg. Ms moving of Hancook aad Sheridan to Deep Bottom wm nothing but a feint to deceive tbe eoemy and oover war raal deeigus. For tbla purpose both infantry and ?miry wore marched eeross from Petersburg to Deep Cm by day light, to afford tbe rebels an opportunity of verlng the movetneut. Nearly all the transports Ma of the army was called In requisition for a day or twe, and mi las on miles of six-male teams and army wagoua were marching lAao same direction? but Ml aaioaried. It aucoaeded to tbe extent of causing Lee la Uans sr a large number of troop* ? variously eetimaled ? from twenty to thirty thousand? from Petersburg to ad, with the utmoet baate.

When I sect away my despatch this morning every thing waa working swimmingly for our side, Two hours later, and tha ense waa very dlliereut. Burnslde's forces, who hud occupied an advance line of the rebel works, who had seized four standi of oolors from the enemy, who bad planted tho Stars and Stripes ofl rebel grout.d, attempted a further advacce. In their compact battle lines they pressed forward. An enfilading Arc was poured into their ranks. Hundreds loll dead before that terrible tire; bjudreda turned Uaok panic stricken and of Umse who still preyed forward few returned. They were the enemy a prisoners.

It was a terrible F6verse, a great and grim cloud suddenly obscuring onr bright fortunes. But yet the eannonallus continued. At ten o'clock H oe-tsed. Our m n occupied the ground they held in tba morning. The great attack had ended in k repulse Various reasons are assigned for the result. In the first place It Is said that following the explosion of tbe mine there was too long a delay In getting the ad vancing column iu position. I am told that one of tbe generals leading tho advancing oolumn has since re marked thit iu this do! ?y the golden opportunity for viotory was lost. It Is farther alleged that negro troops engaged In tbe charge crestcd the stami ede. It will not bo long before the entire truth is known, and It is possi ble, and it certainly i a to be hoped, tbut when all tbe fuels are developed they will present the case more lavcrably than ah 1 have stated it THK FIrTH COHP8* OPSR*TIO?a. General Ay rot ' and Gcieral Cutler's divisions of this corps were in position to Join the charging columns, and expected to do so. Had tbey Joined In the charge It is possible that the day's fortune would have resulted dif lercntly. We hear all sorts of storios of MARVKLLOCS HCAI'OS FROM THE SXPLOKON. A rebel oilicer is said to have been blown two hundred I eet loto the air and come do*rn Inside our lines without a scratch or bruise. But I leave all those incidenta? a statement of our losses, the probable number of rebels killed by tho explosion, the regiments they belong to, and tbe subsequent escape of some of our captured, including two brigadier gener.Us? to your Ninth corps correspond ent, to whom the writing of these facts more legitimately belongs. What I have written came mainly under my own observation. TUB KKHLLfc' TRKATMFJIT OP TBI KKGRO TROOPS. Bot there Is this further fact I have seen, and hnn dreds of othei s have seen it: the bayoneting and shooting iu cold blood our wounded negro troope In front of tbe enemy's works. Audit waa painful further to see tbe mangled piles of our dead fronting these works? at I oast five uundred in number. They still lay there ; at least tbey bad not been removed at dark. It ia not Im probable there are many wounded among them whose lives could be saved could we reach them. ddmko tux ca.isoxainxa tbe batteries ot the Fifth corps did splendid execution.

Major Lydlg, ol the General's stalf, with Burgeon Hogan, Medi cal Director of tbe First division, and Burgeon White, of the Fifty-seventh Massachusetts, accompanied tbe flag. After some little signalling the rebels acknowledged and came forward to meet it. Tue officers who met it wore tbo uniform ? one of a colonel, the otber of a captaiu. Tbey refused, hovt over, to give tbelr n-imes l'be com indication was received and forwarded by tbem to tbe authority with wbom tbo power rests; but no answer has aa yet been received. O ir officers sought permission to succor tbo wouuded while waiting, und it was grunted. Accordingly the poor lellows, who bad been lying on tbe ground nearly twenty- four hours ? a portion of tbe time in the blazing sun ? wore given each a drink of brandy and water. Tbe orator of tbe mined fort was plainly in view ; but tbe reb?ls refused to allow any approach to It, and tbe wounded near it were sup plied by the rebels themselves. Tbo agonies of the wounded were awful. Unable to move, not daring to tn?ke even a signal, lost It would attract an unfriendly bullet, tboy bad lain twenty-four hours witbout food or water, lhe two past days have been tbe warmest, aa yet, of this summer, and they were subjected to the morciltrss rays of a scorching sun. Tne dead presented a Bickering sight. There were both white men and ne groes, but now It Is difficult to distinguish tbom apart. Their bodies were* swollen and bloated, and tbelr (aces bluclcened by tbe sun* About twenty living and one hundred and fifty dead are lying between tbe Hues. Up to the present time no answer haa been received. Tbe signal agreed upon ror the an nouuoemeut of an answer by the enemy was tbe display Id the daytime of a whits llag, or at night the blast of a bugle in front of their works. Oar officers and those who received them conversed for some time together, aud through this moans we learn tbat QEXBBAL BARTLEIT Is unhurt , but a prisoner. His wooden foot was shattered by b ball, precluding tbe possibility of walking, and wheo captured be bad to be borne away on a stretcher. An Incident Is rslated of bim wblle with his brigade In the iroat. A rebel offloer, wbo had boldly pushed lor ward to the crater, attacked Major Gregg, of tbo Forty filth Pennsylvania, and after a short contest waa run throngb by tbe Major, wbo then found blmseir unable to disengage bis sword, lbe General bad been a witness of the reneoturt, and, now unbuckling bis own sword, sald>? ??Mere, Major, take my sword; you know bow to use It."

Aa for tne uegrof, It Is pretty generally ccuv oorled tbat ins ordeal to wbicb thiy were subjected was too terrlbis for raw troo >s , and be it remembered tbat this Is tbe first regular eugagemaot of this body. Raw troops bavs sufficient enthusiasm to carry tbem through a charge; bat for steady, deliberate fighting experienced troopn are required.

It la currently reported that arrangementa are in pro gress for again changlDg tbo commander of tbe Army of tbe Potomac. General Meade to not mentioned la con nection with any otber command. Tbe reaction consequent upon tbe anticipations of a great victory at Petersburg, caused by tbe acoounts Orst received of tbe suoceis which attonded tbe commence ment of the assault, has croated a feeling of temporary despondency which is not warranted by the actual situa tion. Although that assault proved a failure, yet it does not by any means end tbe campaign. One of the princi pal causes of tbe hesitation on tbe part o( tbo troops wbioh led to the disaster, was tbe belier tbat had taken unsaession of the soldiers that tbe bill which they were expeeted to take, snd which they could have taken, and which commandod tbe rebel works and the town, and 'could have bsen held, had been previously mined by tbe rebels. For this reason tbe troops could not be Induccd to ttnlsb their work, and a demoralization waa crcaied wbtch lost the fruite of victory when it waa wlibin their grasp. General Graut's confidence In final success la not les sened by this reverse, and It can only delay, not defeat final victory. a Mr. Wna. H. Merrttam'a Despatch. Bai.tihoks, August 1 ? 4 P.

Among the loyalists of tbls city, and, I bear, of tbe State, tbe events now transpiring near Petersburg, in which our armies are tbe heroic participant*, are bold to be tbe fortunate * auguries of wsll grounded and proximate final success, and tboir Joy thereat to commensurate with tbe wish tbat it may be so. tub sErnaioMiRS, on tbe otber hand, are indeed despondent, and sufficiently svincs their gloomy feelings In their loog drawn and sober v leasee, no less than In their regreta disclosed In conversation, tbat their rebel allies should bave been so badly Injured by tbe Union chieftain, and some oi tbe rebel warriors blown Ifora earth to eternity with out vouchsaiement of the customary monitions of death. , TBKN AOAIN joy to theirs as tbey eagerly oonder over tbe news re ooived this afternoon that their allies had sustained the shock ef tbe onaet with better success than had been an ticipated , and that they had regained all that the explo slon of the mine was tbe incident of wrsnoblng from them by reason of Grant-a sagacity and acumen. LIT TLX UTTtKICS of these misguided and ill-starred men may be seen every where throughout the city, anxiously awaiting tbe hour of rebel succeed, and bitterly bemoaning tbe reverses that I are now falling ao thick and fast upon.tbs arms with which they are so unwisely Identified.

There was an Immense audience at this theatre last evening, the attraction beln~ Bouctoault's Colleen Bawn, with Mr. Han Bryant as Myies Na-Coppaleen. The play was admirably cast, and, everything considered, very bands1 raoly put upon tbe stage. Mr. Mobs has certainly given us the beet summer company over seen in this city. Mr. Bryant played Myles capitally. There Is const d era Die serious business In the part, but he was quite at homo In It? as much so as In th# comic phases of the character. Mr. Bryant has * splendid career be'ore j him as an Irish actor, If he chovaes to dosert negro minstrelsy and stick to the stage.
