Mantling, arrived from City Point, hav lug three scbr ners and throe btrgos In tow. c, a tain Manning reports that while passli g Wilcox's landing, a short distance above Fort Powhatan, a reliel battery of lour guns opened Ore on him and his tow. Tho Johnson was struck three di'erent times, but sustained compara tively little damage One shell bunted lu the engino room, and somowhat disabled the macblnory. Mr. Fd. Philips, the eneineer, nobly stood to his post, and. not withstanding Ibe heavy Are of the enomy. maintained his position. Ur. Dayton, tbe pilot, also stuck to his wheel. One shell struck the dsck before exploding. One of tho crew, with commendable presenou of mind, ploked up tbe burnlag missile aad threw It overboard, when It ex ploded, without Injuring any one. Tbe shooting was very accural). Ibo Johnson on slowing around was exposed to a raking Ore. A number of the rebel shots ploughed through ber gangways. It ia almost a miracle that no one was hurt on b.>ard of this vessel, as the enemy flrcd no loos than one hundred and Afty shots at her. A nav?l reuse i lying near ibe scene it action, on hear ing the firing, came up, and engaged the rebel battery. Tho cnnnonadlng for some time was very brisk. It Is evident that tbls battery *u supported by iafsntry, and that the expedtimo was for tbe puri>ose of attacking Fort Powhatan. Tho latter was firing very briskly, but the result Is unknown. The steamer Argo, on ber way up to City Point, having several barges In tow, soemed to be the special object attracting the attention of tho enemy. A number of shots struck her; but ao she waa ixmod upward tho exteot of the damage could not be aa oertamed by Captain Manning. About four mili^s below Fort Powhatan, tbe gunboat Pawn, doing dulv at Wilson's landing, was met, under a full bead of steam. on her way up to engage tbe enemy. A number of vessels going up the river had to turn about and await tbe result of tho action. Fp to Ibia moment the City Point malt hoat baa not arrived. Pro bably this affblr has detained her. In tbls affair the Imbecility of our naval authorities la again amply exemplified. At the beginning of tbls oam palgn I suggested thai several oaval veseeis should patrol the James river, and their preoeace would prevent the rebels from making a dash on some narrow poiot In tho river, run their light artillery in bsttery and raks our veaae's aa tbey paas. When Admiral Wilkes r-ommaaded tho Jaaaoa river ??i?adron during the Peninsula campaign of ISfia, at loan tbe mall boats wore eeoorted by gun boats to and from ?Harr toon's landing. Under tbo present arrangements only two gunboats are stationed In ihe Jarosn river botweon Newport's News and city Point, ?bieb pfateadeqnata to protect oteef tbe larm aaassfl. The 'ames river squadron is Dinner" 8 enough to dettub several ?!' the gunboats for puroi dutv, tua.< making tUe navigation ol ibis stream perfectly secure.

Tho South had disregarded this important e'ement of warfare The Yankees ? ve cloth and manufactured Iroir the South relied chieilv unon tbe 'mimrtstlon of these Important dities. Tbe Yankets cast cannon and built snips; tbey con structed wagons enough to furnish both armies. Itio South was obliged to organize all tbe Industrial enter prises necessary to arm, clothe and transport our men. lho Yankees bad tbe advantage or every im proved arm In Knrooe and America. Their dietetic and sanitary systems bave saved them thousands of sol dlers who would have died uron the coarse fsre ot tbe military hospital. They copied 'he Sanitary Commission of tbe Crimean war.

Tbe mechanical skill or these people wa shown In the facility with which thsy have Intrenched themselves in tho fleid, and tbe formidable earthworks which they erect to caver their cowardly Imtcb and aeffroes. It has been signally shown by ths perseverance of Grant be ore Vicksburg, and by tbe recent mine before Petersburg, ?nd, indeed, by works which dot and deface tbe whole South.

Springing of the Mine?The Fighting. [I'rom the Richmond Kxammor, August 3.] The Petersburg papers give ?omo additional particulars of the springing of Grant's m ne on last Saturday in front of Petersburg. It took place about ha f past four In the morning. i ho situation was on ono of our salients, near the -centre 01 the lines, and a tew tinudred yai ds beyoud tbe Blandiord Cemet'Ty . Prisoners taken subsequent to the explosion from the enemy, and near the spai, statu that several of our men were dug out of the ruins alive, a paper describing the scene says ? Th* chasm can jfii by tu enemy s explosion uppoars to be about fortv feet In depth and some two hundred feet in clrcumioreiice, and re-emues more what one would Imagine to have been the e ects of a terrible earthquake than anything else Immense boulders of earth wore piled up rudely one above the other, and great fragments ot bombproofs, gun earn iges, timbers, Stc , were lying promiscuously in ovary directftm. ihe Rides ainl bottom of the chasm were literally lined with Yanlsee dead, and the bodies were in every con ceivable position Some bad evidently been kilied with the butts ol muskets. as their crushed skulls anil badly mashed lace^ too plainly indicated, while tbe greater portion were shot, great pools of blood having flowed from their wounds and stained the ground. F'et ween our bi e istworks and the enemy's large num bers ol dead and wounded were stll lytug, the latter bei; gtng piteously for water. and i ray mg to bo cared !or The length or the ? sap" made by the enemy is supposed to have been about six hundred 'eet. The Petersburg palters estimate our ontlre loss atoi pht hundred; the enemy's wounded at three thousand live hundred ; killed, 700. Of the napturo ot prisoners, arms, AiC..

Allying tbo prisoners captured are ttngadicr i.cneral Uar'.lett, o Massachusetts, aud seventy five commissioned officers. A Petersburg paper, describing the struggle for the re possession of our works, captured by ihe enemy in the conlusion consequent to tne explosion, says : ? Arriving upon tho ground, (ieneral Mahonc found twelve of the eueray's Hags waving upon tho ramparts of that portion of our lino carried liy tho explosion, and tbe whole vicinity swarming with white a. ri black Yankee troops, (letting uis troops into position, (ienoral Mahoue ordered bis brigade to retake a portion of bis works, and lus tructed Wright's brigade to c mo np in such a position as would ensure the reeupturo ot the rem uning portion.

As to the strength of the force that crossed at Stiepberdstown there does not so m to be any particularly reliable information. It is vari ously estimated at Irom two to three thousand. Tnose figures are solely based on the reports of citl/en slcedad dlerg. From a source that Is deemed rellablo we have informa tion that Early's total force threo days ago did uot ex ceed, if it reached, thirty thousand.

Rebels whom he cutne in contact with said tbey were going to have a big tight before they left, and, as they felt con lideut of success, they expected to stay where they wero all summer. General Early is reported to have fold a well known lady in Martinsburg that it was tho intention of the rebel government to carry the war into Maryland and Peunsyl vanta aud other Mates, to see h w long the North would st.'ind It. Early was very boastful in his remarks, atld said lie would go where and when he pleaded, as be desired.
