TIM rebels seen unwilling to relinquish tbeir attempts <k> drive Geoeral Warren from tbe position be now occu pies, and to regain possession of tbe Petersburg and Weldoa Railroad. Thus far their plans have feeen foiled at all points. Heavy cannonading was beara in that di Motion at frequent intervals during tbe night, but no ap prehensions are now entertained of oar ability to retain possession of the vantage ground. Tbe rear divisior. of fieoeral Uancook's corps arrived last night, which allays whatever rear may have been felt concerning our safety. THE CACra or TM RBCKNY LOSS.

Tbe ?ighteentb oorps ^nra extended as far as practicable, and the Ninth * was to stretch out nntil Its left connected wKfa Warren's right. At certain points along its front (here waa nothing but a heavy skirmish line left. It wns believed this could deceive the enemy and conceal tfco weakness of tbe Hue by assuming a bold front and firing vigorously whenever a mark presented itself. It effber ?aooeeded in dofng so for several bours or tbe rebels were ?M in readiness to make an attack, for no movement of the kind waa attempted till later iu the day. But Anally they pushed a ooiumn through the woods, pierced tbe ltaa easily, and formed a line or battle on tbe flank and Mar of Warren's oorps. Though not a complete surprise, their gaining snob an advantageous position threw us into great confusion. Oar men had to jump over tbe intrench seats they were hastily constructing and defend tfcem Mlve* irooa a rear attack. Tbe en??.)y was exultant and Saabed with temporary success. Our situation was im miaeat and crltieal.. At this juncture the fate of tbe en tire carps liung tremblingly in the %alanoe. its artillery ?pooed on the contending surging mass of friends and fbea, and decided tbe contest In a few minutes. The lire was extremely murderous. Tbe rebels considered their safety lay In flight. Our men preferred death from tbe ?msies qf oar own gans to flight or surrender The ne ?ssstty was a terrible one, but the corps was saved. TUB FIFTH CORPS. Mr. L. A. Hemdrtck's Dripktck.

Diligent inquiry enables me to state tbat the number eC rebel troops opposed to us la tbe late operations at and In front of Deep Bottom, on tbe north bank of tbe James Tfver, amounted to fourteen thousand men. They were made up of Major General Fields' division, consisting of live brigades; Major General Mabone's division, three brigades of Willcox's division, one brigade of Busbrod Johnson's division, Wade Hampton's cavalry , and a few reserved militia defending Chapln's Btaff.

I notloe by some rebel papers 1 was permitted to glance at last evening tbat the rebels claim tbey repulsed Major Ludlow, commanding United States foroes at Dutch Gap, from his late position at Oox ferry, wit* loss to btm. In refutation of this assumption, it so happened that in tbe withdrawal or the troops, as mentioned In a previous de spatch, tour negro pickets were accidentally left on doty, not being Informed of tbe movement. A body of rebels came up anc were actually repelled by tbe negro fire? tbe four colored boys holding tbe position all nigbt. not withstanding tbe shelling of tbe rebel gunboats. I doubt whether another such an incident has oocsrred during tbe war. AT DITTOS CAP everything is quiet, and tbe work mow admirably on. The canal may now be said to be under full headway, and will go forward to a speedy completion. AN IB PORTA*!

Evening, f Thi? morn I of the enemy mad* a Tigoroui attack on tbe Firtb oorps, on tbe left of tbe Weldon Railroad, at tbe same place wbere they were partially successful on Fri day ; but to-day they met with a different reception. Our line w formed about tbe same time ai it wu on that day, the First division being on <he extreme left, connecting with tbe cavalry, which covered the railroad, towards Reams station. Tbe Second division waa nest. Cutler's, tbe Fourth division, was across tbe aailroad, and tbe Third division (Crawford's) was on tbe right, 1 joinlag with the Math eorpe. .which connected the rlgbloftbe new line with tbe left of the old one, near the Jerusalem r ank road. Pnring Saturday our men had strengthened the breast works which tbey had temporarily erected, btsides throwing up others m tchilon. Farly th's mormng very heavy cannonading was epeued by the enemy from their works further down towards Petersburg. and our gun* replied very briskly, neither parly, however, doing the other soy particular damage. About seven A.M. a small force 0/ the enemy were ween moving as if to m<ke an attack on tbe Ninth oor|w, but a few well directed sbeUe seat them out of sight rather quicker than tbey advanced. Shortly after a strong column or tbe rebels emerged from the wood* on tbe left of tbe railroad, aud, foraiag in line, charred on what they believed to be eur left (link, out which proved to be the left of Geo en! Avree' front line. The rebels advanced io floe style and with tbe utmoet confidence, evidently thinking tbe work berore them was an oasy pleoa of bustnees. Rut wbst was their surprise on discovering a seoond line behind and extended to tbe left of the first, from which a row of bayonets glistened, with a battery on tbe left and another on tbe right, pour ing in a? cross fire iato their ranks, almoet every dia coargs causing large vacancies in tbsir line. A.i snoti as tbey discovered the critical position In wblcb tbey were pisoed tbe entire command made signs to imlloato their willti gness to surrender, and the order to cea<e firing passed along tbe b east works. Rut ss soon as ttiey discovered this a I .rgo portion of tbem broke and started for th>- woeds, the remainder ooraing In aod surrendering themselves.

In the fight oa Friday our lorn in prisoners to believed to be larger than heretofore reported. The Ninetieth Pennsylvania was more than half taken, as wm the cue, in tact, with all the regiments of the brigade. The One Hundred and Fourth New York loet every ofllocr on the field, and can muster but comparatively few man for duty. Had these troops held their position or ahangcd their front, at some' did, tbey could nearly all have SAved themselves and glveu the enomv a sound thrashing; but being told tbey were flanked, tbey started (or the rear and fell Into the arms of the rebels. Colonel Wbeelnck, with the 8e<ftnd brigade of the Third division, changed his front towards the rear, and forming in line of bottle, with skirmishers thrown out, advanced to see wbero the enemy were, and reached onr second line without losing a man of lAose who remained by him, while all who left and ran were captured. This brigade brought in-wltb them over sixty prison ers and a stand of colors, besides retaking many of our ?ten wbo were being taken away. August 22? Morning. No further fighting has taken place since yesterday morning. Skirmishing baa been very brisk, and during laat night a good deal of artillery was beard. At this hour (six o'clock in the morning) all ta quiet within the sound of hoadqnsrters, but another engage ment may take place at any moment, as the enemy will not give up their hopes of regaining possession of the railroad, until they see the impossibility of consummat ing their purpose. Our lines have been greatly strengthened within tQe laat twenty four honrs, and should the enemy attack oa tbey will fare even worse than they did yesterday. The For (reins Monroe Despatch.

Particulars of Friday's Fight oa the Wrldoa Railroad. f Special correspondence of the Washington Chronicle, j Ths YklujwIHoiisb, August 20, lfctt*? P M. Here is a summary or the movement which gave ne poeeeesioc of the Weidon Railroad. Thursday morning the Fifth corps marched to the le*t. Their destination was the present position ; (be obiect of the march, de struction to the railroad communicating with North Caro lina. The srOall command of oavnlry In advance captured or drove oil every rebel this side of the road. Very few shots were exchanged. A f?w cavalry vldeitea only op ? posed ocr progress, ir a surprise was designed it eoold not have been more successful. Griffin's division first reached the road, and immediately began to tear It up, making breastworks of the ratio and sleerers. At this place the command halted for rest and refreshment^. Near noon the rebels mads tboir appearance. Mahonc's and* Hetb's divisions were rushed * p oa tbe double quick. They attacked os instantly, impetuously. Ayers' division seomed abon t to be overwhelmed, when Hoffman's brigade of the Fourth division came Bravely upon bis lert and offered the rebels .stout resfstance. The Pnrnell Legion, composed of Mary landers, for a moment received the heaviest portion of the shock, but'soen recovered from the momentary con fusion into which tbey were thrown. Crawford upon the right and Ayres upon the left now advanced their line simultaneously, swinging It around and forward so as to take longer ml stronger grasp upon ths road, for which the enemy now exhibited great anxiety. It was bore the gallant Pisrson, lieutenant colonel of the Thirty - ninth Massachusetts, received a mortal wound, and many brave follows belonging to the Second and Third divisions were placed Aor.? it etmbai. Poreelv a month has elapeeti sinoe I performed the melancholy dutv of furnishing yon with the? particulars of Colonel Oavlr death.

At last ws bold ths We Id mi Railroad. That night, Thursday, we built breastworks sf the soft mod. All night the rain fell drearily. Next day, untH ten o'eloek, there was very little firing. Between ten and eleven A. M., the enemy felt the line la front of the Veteran Rao err an. A briek skirmish ensusd, which lasted about balf aa boor, and then died out. It was noon. General Wilcox's division of the Ninth corpe bsd takes up a posi tion near ths woods, upon tbs extreme right or the line General Bragg*e brigade of the Fourth division was slightly advaaoed as skirmishers. Then came Crawford 'a division; Wbeeieck's brigade in the centre, I.yle and Hartahorn. with their respective brigades, oa slther side At this point ren the railroad. Upon the other side was Ayres' division and the Ssoond brigade or Cutler's dlvi slon . Griffin's and ths balance of tbe Fourth division fol lowing. Between four and five o'clock lly enemy oame epoa Wilcox with fearful foroe. Volley succeeded volley, bat failed to destroy tbe Impetus which tbe rebels hsd ac quired In their run. Hartrauft . on tbe risht. and Hum phrey, on the left, had their brigades closely united, and successfully resisted and foHad every eflbrt of the aasafi ants to penetrate tbetr front This was bat the pre cursor of the coming conflict. A simultaneous attack was made upon our entire front. Every battery in posi tion roared forth Its dreadful, direful notes. Great dark, tbreatsning clouds began to gather, and tbs white smoke or tbe battle ne d gently asoeodsd In soft pHlow-shaped wrestbs to plead and propitiate. S>on the rain begaa to drop upou tbe hot hesda o- tbe combatants, and the rgsr of men's cannon visd witb the rumbling of (feavsa's ar tillery. Fifty sharpshooters, belonging to tbe Seventh Indiana were swept from sight in lass time than It takes me ta write this. Tbe rebels bad forced their way through the skirmish line, and wers deploying right sod lsrt, to coma down upon Crawford's right and Wilcox's left. Here the fight thickened; men grew desperate and drew strength from the frenzy which the battle oreited General Rragg's brigade was forced back, and the rebels rushed upon Uyle. threatening to devour everything. The Veteran reserves wero swept from sight, aftV doing rearrnl execution with their new Spencer rifles. Colooel Hartshorn, commanding brigade, was captured , Colonel Csrle wounded and captured, ana near two hundred men from this brigade are missing General ratter brought the Second division, Ninth corps, upon the right of Wilcox. (>eneral White soon took position still firtber to tbe right This was early in the engagement. These troops bad Just performed a wean?ome march over s"ft roads, yet they entered the ftgbt immediately witb cheerfulness and courage, holding their place upoa the right withfgreal stubbornness. Tbs Fiftieth regiment of Pennsyivaata Veteran Volunteers capture'! a stand of colors from tbo Forty-seventh Vlr. gioia. Km blazoned upon Its red, while and red folds were inscriptions of thirteen engagements, in which tbe regiment 'bad fought ? from Ruilfruo to Mine run. About this time Major Belcher, commanding tbe Eighth Michigan, was killed, and Maj' r Hart, comm'WKfcog tbe Fifty first Psnnsylvanis, wounded. A short distance to tbe led tne One Hundred snd Fourth New York captured a stand of oolers and some prisoners. The rebels penstrated our front and ponrad to upon tbe flanks of tbe different commands Men be*;aa to come to the rear, with weapons in their bands. Gsneral Hayss. who connsoled with Crawford at tbe railroad, was roughly bandied. He was lately dubbed brigadier gene ral, and oommanded tbe regular brigade in Aires' divi sion. Hayea was carried off. and I number of his troops We reoeded from tbe clay banks, hastily thrown ap In s nlglit. U they wore of atfy protection, tbev were lost. The battle assumed tbe ap)>earance of a mWee. Every one seemed to fight to kill. Darkness was stealing over tbe field of battle. Tbe rebels strewed the ground. Here and there tbey lay as when kt led, their long hair drabbled In mud, their gray clothes dripping with blood. Bolng the assailants, tbev suffered severely.

The following intelligence is published this morn tug. tbe substance or which the censor woaid cot permit to be transmitted over the wires last night:? Hakftsp Fbkbt, V*., August 22, 1864. A brisk engagement took place yesterday, two miles beyond Cbarlestown, between the Army ot Weetcrn Virginia ana the rebel force now in the Shenandoah]valley. The battle commenced at eight o'clock in the morning by a heavy column <Jf rebel infantry and cavalry attempt ing to pierce our ezben slve front near Summit Point. After a rharp, but decisive struggle, oar skirmishers wore compelled to give way. The First division, General Wilson's, of General Tor toe u'b cavalry corps, were engaged on our right and saf fered heavily General Mackintosh's brigade, of that division, lost nearly three hundred men, but only one officer was seri ously wounded. Acting Adjutant Lloyd, of the Twenly-cecond Wisconsin cavalry, and tfcree other officers were slightly wounded, but have not yet left their cmmands. The movement bad evidently for its object the posses sion of Martiosburg; for at tbe same time that the attack was made at ijpmmit Point another false movement was made against our extreme left, and the attacking column moved slowly down towards our right, and then suddenly a new body of rebel troops appeared in front ?f our rlgbt, the Sixth corps. A short but determined battle lock place. Tbe Sixth, Eighth and Nineteenth corps formed In line of battle, Irom right to left, as I bavs written them down. The Fixth corps bore tbe brunt of tbe engagement, and the Second division lost heavily? some three hundred wounded and irom sixty to seventy killed and missing. Tbe loss of the rebels was fully as great. Among tbe officers wounded In tbe Sixth oorps are the following:? I.leut Ool. Geo. K. Chamberlain, 1st Vermont. Lieut. Ool. A. A. Halo, 6th Vermont. Ma)or O. W. Dwlnell, 6th Vermont. Captain P. B. Tabgar,6tb Vermont. Lieut Rodenbaub, 81st Pennsylvania. Lieut. Charles C. Money. 2d Vermont. Lieut. J. N. Price, fllst Pennsylvania. Acting Adjutant John Caldwell, 61st Pennsylvania. Our right drove tbe enemy over a mile and then fbll back to tbetr eid line, holding It nntll ten o'clock, when our entire army retired towards Halltowa, where they now lie, la line of battle, on the first rang* of hills In tbo immediate vicinity of that place. The Eighth corps, General Crook, won only partly en gaged and loot but few moo. Tbe left, consisting of the Nineteenth oerpo, General Esaory, were not engaged, as their line rested on tbo Berry villa pike. Oar entire lino extended from tbo Berryrtile pike, on the left, to flsnitbfleld pike, on tbe right, and occupied the commanding line or ooantry running between tbeee two roads, situated some two miles from Oharleetown. Oar -cavalry, after tbe enemy had shifted his front from our loft to our right, retired down the Berryvllle pike, and paeelng through Charleatown bivouacked in tbe fields to the right of tbe town. All laat night troops wore passing- tbroagh Charles town In tbe direction of Balltown, and the soene by aeoonligb! was an extremely Inspiring one. Tbs cavalry were left la front of Charlestown aad Ibalr picket* relieved the lafantry before daylight. At sunrise "forward" was sounded, end tbe entire oavalry corps moved forward and took up tbe position abandoned by tbe Stgbth and Sixth oorps. As I rode away en route for tne Ferry a sharp and continuous skirmishing fire broke out, aad it lasted until nine o'clock, wben It suddenly sfaokened, and before I loft Halltowa it bad entirely ceased. Our cavalry bave orders to push through to Martina burg, and tbe infantry are busy pitching impromptu camps along their line of battle, awaiting tbe rosult. Rumors are afloat that tbe rebels are crossing the Poto. mac at Martinsburg. What truth there is In them I can not say. Certain it Is, however, that tbe rebels bavs possession of Martinsburg, whatever may be their ulti main intention. Large numbers of loyal citizens aro here endeavoring to reacb places of safely further north, believing there wll! be a total abandonment of the valley. Mr. T. C. Wllioa'i D*iptl?hei.
