The latent accounts from General Grant's army rep resent tbe rebels retreating from tbe Weldon Railroad' upon which they made so desperate an attack on Sunday. Tbe Union forccs now bold tbe road, and It Is not Improbable (hat General Warren will make an attack on the Dan villa toad without delay, if the rebels should not make another daeh on the Weldon road, at It ?was thought they would, our troop?, however, are con fident that they can hold It. Tbe row* from General Sheridan does not indicate an Important advance of the enemy. AverHl's cavalry held Marticfburg on Tuesday evening. Rumors that the enemy tad crossed the Potomac were rife yesterday, but they have not been con firmed. We have news from Atlanta byway of Naehvjlle op to yesterday. Matters there were unchanged. M^jcr General Dodge, who was wounded while looking arter tbe plckct lines cn tbe I9th, is reported to have died. Our troops were erecting parapets and strengthen ing the works generally. General Kilpatrick re taraed on Monday to General Sherman's lines from his expedition to break the Macon Rail road, which he succeeded in doing near Jonosboro, de stroying three mile* of tbe track and two trains and locomotives. He encountered the enemy and bad a sharp conflict, dispersing their eavafryand capturing a battery and many prisoners, as we hare before reported. It Is denied that either General Fteedman or Colonel Strel#ht was wounded at the Dalton fight. Our news from the Mississippi is highly interesting. A despatch from Memphis yesterday sUtos that tbe rebel General Forrest captured that city os Sunday morning at three o'clock, hut was not able to bold It for more than two hours. In the In terval! bis forces,] who numbered three thou sand, cleared out a good deal of plunder from tbe prinelpal hotels and boarding bosses, but they failed in wbat appeared to be the main object of tbe at tack? the capture of Geo. Waahbnrne. They succeeded, however, in taking a portion of his staff and that of Gen. Burlbut, together with some two hundred and fifty men. Both of theee generals, as well as Gen. Buckland, escaped narrowly. The United States steam frigate ?usq ash ansa, Com mander S. W. Gordon, returned to this port yesterday from a cruiso around the Island of Bermuda In search of tbe pirate Tallabaatee. MISCELLANEOUS TOWS. By tbe arrival of the United states transport steamer Hase from North Carolina, we learn that the new pirate au-amer Coquette, which Is one of tbe number now la Wilmington receiving their armament, Is considered tbe most formidable of them all. She will be tbe first to leave that port, If she is not already out. Tbe ship Victoria, Captain Champion, from London, arrived at this port lost evening. She brought to this country tbe man Mailer, wbo, It is alleged, murdered a Mr. Brlggt In a London railway carriage about two months ago, and for whose arrest the London authorities sent oat several detectives. One of tbe Londoa officers and officer TVman, of the New York, detective force, boarded her at Quarantine, and will probably bring Mul ler to tbe city this morning. Tbe baggage of Slgnor Brignell, tbe tenor, ?|i seized on Tuesday by the Sheriff, on a warrant of attachment, issued at tbe toptanee of a lawyer named John A. Godfrey, to whom It Is sllcged tbe Signor is indebted in tbe sum of fl ,60ft for legal sorvtoes. Brignoll was about to dspart for Europe at the time, and tbe attachment was got out for tbe purpose of protecting bis relentless creditor. Tbe case of the United Sutee against Mr. John Mullaly, editor of tbe Jf'trnpoftton R eor4, for the publication of certain articles described In the affidavit of tbe United States District Attorney as calculated to inelU "one Sey mour and others to resist tbs draft," cams up yesterday before United States Commissioner Osborn. The Dis trict Attorney opened the case for the government, and was followed by Mr. Charles 0 Conor for the defence Mr Osborn reeervsd bis decision tin to morrow at twelve o'clook. la tbe Third District Coart yesterday a stilt was brought against a well known Broadway hatter ror damaging a valuable Panama hat In cleaning. The plaintiff claimed that the hat, which coat him $90 in gold, was ruined dur ing the cleaning process, a hole appearing la the crown of tbe article nnnsoesnnrtly large for ventilation.

Great Repulsed terribly in their attempt of Sunday to drive tbe Fifth corps from the Weldon road, the rebels are still determined not to give tbe buoineM up. So vitally important is it to tbe rebels that Grant should be driven from this position thut they cannot relinquish the at tempt,to drive him away while they lave a man left to make it. Rumor has already at tributed to General Lee the expression that Beau regard must drive us from that position if it took every man be bad; and though this phrase may be a mere invention, and may never have originated with General Lee, if still might very well have done so; for it Is the simple expression of what muBt have Leon in biB mind when he beard where Grant was. He is giving practical expression to the same idea with the spade. He has fallen back from Warren's immediate front, and is intrenching, and bis intreuchments mean that the bard battle of Sunday is not to be the last of the attempt to drive us from our new position. Into those intrenchments that I.ee making will tile every mau that he can , gather in Virginia before the struggle is done i with. Great preparations nro to be made under I the cover of Hose lines, and from them many a ' Loavy column will yet be burled against War ren's important position. Grant's strategy has forced this immense campaign in Virginia to a focus. That focus, that'central deOuite point at which the final issue of the campaign is in all probability to be decided, is Warren's position on the Weldon road. All the danger of the confederacy in the East Grant hart concentrated iu that posi tion. and all the strength that the confederacy can gather lor a final attempt for salvation, and that it would not utterly waste, it must gather tbero. It must win a^great battle at that point or it die.*. It has been said that for Grant to be south of Richmond and on Lee's great lines of supply was for him to be on the carotid artory of the rebellion. But the figure is hardly strong enough; lor a feeble circulation will go 011 through ether channels, though that through tbe carotid cease. Grant's position is more aiialo^ous in its effects to tbe pressure of a for eign body against the ipinal marrow. To re lieve from that 1 re.ssure is the only chauce for life, and if the Burgeons cannot get rid cf tie foreign body the case id hopeless. Lee's des perate surgery has failed thus far, and is likely to fail. All other struggles and interests In Virginia are inconsiderable by comparison with this struggle; for all will merge into it. Lee must not only hurl Beauregard against those lines: he must alsojempty. Richmond to burl Long street and QUI to tbe sjpne purpose; and if these fal Early must burry from the Shenan doah valley, and lend such assistance as be may to drive ub from the place. Every man that Lee can gather must go into that fight, as every drop of water in the Norway Sea must go within a given time to the centre of tbe maelstrom. Warren's fight on Sunday did more to empty tho Shenandoah valley than did Sheridan's tight on the same day, though Sheridan's fight, was a good one. But Grant will thus once moro have concentrated on bis front the whole of Lee's army, and will have it launched against him. urged by a more than commonly desperate necessity. Can be stand it? That is a question for the administration and the country to consider and act upon soon. If he is driven, it is another great chanoe lost. If be is maintained and holds his position as it has been held hitherto, we have put down the rebel lion. He must have more men, and bavc them soon. lie must imperatively be reinforced for tbe great struggle that is in preparation. It is I child's play for us to leave him in such a posi tion that tbe result of tbe struggle may be doubtful when we have tbe means to render absolute triumph certain at a single blow. ,<Thi P?tu Qncation at Wk^tlBflon Why So JBaelt Mfit?r)rl Notwithstanding the denial of Senator Wil son, pointed and positive as it is, we are as sured from an intelligent source that peace ne gotiations bare b?en going on for some time at Washington, and that in this connection Major "Hay's return to Niagara Falls is not without significance. We are further assured that in Washington, among the knowing ones, Senator Wilson's late card is laughed at, which we can readily believe; for his memory is so kbad that he will positively and flatly deny to-day, as an injured innocent, his public declarations of yes terday, as heretofore we hare bad ^occasion to show. Setting aside, then, the protestations of Sena tor Wilson as of no account, we accept these more reliable assurances 'that the Cabinet has very recently been, and probably still is, engaged in the consideration^of some peace movement, and that the President's confidential secretary, Major Hay, in bis return to Niagara Falls, has gone there, in a quiet way, to glean some further information upon the subject, if possible, from other men's conversations with Holcombe, Clay, Thompson and Sanders, tke rebel peace emissaries in that quarter. But it appears that the administration has beet^par ticularly anxious to keep this business in the dark, so that if %the peace movemeat in ques tion shall turn out another failure, like that of Greeley and Colorado Jewett, it may be bushed up without exciting any public sensation or troublesome curiosity. But why all this mystery T Can it be that President Lincoln is seeking for the ways and means of peace in the highways and byways of rebel emlssarlet> and through secret chan nels of which be is half ashamed? Can it be that Horace Greeley, an advocate of the right of secession and a preacber of the folly of co ercion before tbe war began, has succeeded In persuading tbe administration that Holcombe, Clay, Sanders and Company are peace agents with whom it would be well to renew diplo matic relations? We do not know; but if Honest Old Abe, or simple Old Abe, or cunning Old Abe, as the case may be, is not aware of the fast, we can tell bim that the sooner be dispenses with Greeley as bis confidential peace ambassador, and with those rebel emissaries in Canada as tbe accredited peace agents of tbe so-called "Confederate States," the better it will be for the peac<ft>f bis admlniitratioa sod hia Dirty. Tbete is s very sbsrt method by Wbiok sll these Northern peace agitators sad disor ganicers nay be eflbotyally silenced and ren dered powerlmfSr *ny farther mischief.

Will Httle the business. Ws.1 know that Jeff. Davis, only the other day, politely dismissed Messrs. Kirke and Jaques with the declaration that ht should always be happy to wel coins thorn or any other doves of peace, but that they need not come unlet* they ca ue with the olive brauch of a Southern confederacy. We are aware of all this; but we know, too, that these ineu were peace ambassadors upon their own responsibility, witLout official authority, and that, therefore, their t;tlk with Jeff. Davis has only the value of a private conversation, which usually binds neither despots, diplomats uor politicians. Au official commission to Rich mond from Washington will bring Davis to the mark; for, assuming that he will meet it with bis ultimatum of Southern independence, the result will still be a decisive victory for the Un?on cause uud tie administration. It will reunite the North and divide the South, and then tho implacable despot of the rebellious States will inevitably aoon find his confederacy and his occupation pone. This is the peace movement, and this is the great object in view that we would still urgo upon the favorable attention of Prosident Lin coln. Xhi LsitOptratle Imbroglio? The Trou- j blu or ? T?*or. We publish in auother oolumn a letter from Signor Drignoli, the famous tenor, in regard to his legal controversy with the Mynheer Grau. We know how deeply Brignoli's epistle will harrow up the tender souls of the sweetest young ladies of New York; but still a stern j sense of justice compels us to print it. Tenors, I like birds of paradise, are popularly supposed I to feast on flowers and sleep on beds of roses, undisturbed by mortal cares, unvexed by mortal annoyances, their only labor bring to look handsome, and sing charm ingly, and die gracefully on opera nights. Biu here we bave the sad reverse of the picture. We see the delicious linger coming into court to collect his salary. How surprised tic young ladles will be to learn that he has a salary. We are officially informed of the exact amount or that stipend. Oh, horrible and practical realism! We behold tbe Mynheer Grau, in a state of mind, refusing to pay the money aod defending the aution. We perceive a Ruat of a lawyer buzzing about with a counter claim and asking impertinent questions of the unhap py Signor. The bird of paradise has his plumage ruffled, and his tail feathers erect, and shows his beak and talous, and strikes out manfully at bis Irritating enemies. The illusion is lost. The tenor has become a mortal, like the rest of us. The grievous spectacle wounds us to the heart. Signor Brignoll tells his story so clearly in bis card, and his statements are so well authenti cated by the records of Judge Barnard's court, that we need only hint at the niain features of the case. About ten years ago Brignoli came to theso shores, and here he has issued lr.s most melodious and harmonious notes. Many managers have had the honor of engaging him, and among these the Mynheer Grau now figures conspicuously. It seems that, in tho spriug of^ 1863, Grau engaged Brignoli for eight months, at a salary of sixteen hundred dollars per month. Taking into consideration the deprecia tion of tbe currency, that was not a high price for such a favorite singer as Signor Erignoli;but Grau went off to Europe, and did not fulfil hie contract. Upon Grau's return from the scenes of his childhood and the ruined castles of his ancestors he offered the Signor eight hundred dollars to compromise the matter; but, as eight hundred dollars can scarcely be considered an equivalent for eight times sixteen hundred dol lars, the compromise was very naturally de clined. The Mynheer Grau's position, if we un derstand it, is that Brignoli <*><* ?iug him, and tbftt he is rather generous'and niUnifl cent than otherwise to offer the Signor eight hun dred dollars for doing nothing. To this Signor Brignoli replies that he was ready to sing for Grau; that he refueed many more advantageous offers in order to 8ing for Grau, and that If he did not sing for Grau it was Grau's own fault. In other word*, the Signor falls back upon his contract and demands h:s money; and if he can prove tbe contract to the satisfaction of the court we really cannot see how the Mynheer Grau can avoid paying him. At this stage of the proceedings Mr/Godfrey, a lawyer, steps forward and attempts a flank movement. He brings a suit against Signor Brignoli for fifteen hundred dollars' worth of professional services, and attempts to levy upon the Signor'a diamonds, jewelry and souvenirs. Of this person Brignoli's card dls I* poses in a coople of lines. But we can tell the popular tenor how to dispose ef him more effectually. Let the Signor bring a counter suit against Godfrey. Let him oharge Godfrey with the dihners be has eaten and the wines he has Imbibed at Brignoli's house and exper.se, takirig Delmonico's charges as a basis. Let him debit Godfrey with all the drives he has taken in the Park behind Brignoli's mares, at the regular livery stable price. Let him figure up tbe cost o^ all the free opera tickets with which he bas supply the ungrate ful Godfrey. Let the segars which he bas given Godfrey be put In the accounj. Let not a pair of ileeve buttons and ?tier presents which he baa bestowed upon Godfrey bs omitted. If the 8lgnor baa ever snng for God frey In private let Godfrey be brought ia deb* therefor at the current rates. Let the pro fessional opinions whlob Briffioll has expressed to Godfrey In regard to operas be an item of the bill. Surely, if Godfrey's professional services are valued at fifteen hundred dollars, the opinions of Signor Brignoli, who knows much more about music than Godfrey know! abont law, would be cheap at twice that 'amount, ir Brignoli has ever given Godfrey good advice, artistic or convivial? and we do not doubt that Godfrey needed it? let it be put in the bill. If Godfrey has ever begged the loan of Brignoli's watchchaln, to make a show with, or of Brignoll'i Ud gloves, to wear at the opera, let Godfrey be made to pay roandly for this privilege. What amateur would not gladly offer one hundred dollars to few BrlgnoU re hearse in private I If Godfrey baa ever ea Joyed that qptpleal treat let him be fotoed to remunerate tenor accordingly.

It has fondled and petted him, humored bis every wblm, and submitted to bla delightful caprices. Truth to saj, be has served us very faithful 1 j. No tenor has taken better care of bis precious health, piesented the pub lie with fewer apologies, or been less troubled by the inevitable operatic indisposition!. A favorite in all parte of the oountry, his depar ture will be everywhere regretted. If our belies do not go into mourning next season om account of his loss it will be because black, is not fashionable. It wore selfish In us to detain bira here when the Old World is all ready to be conquered by Liin; and so his many friends refrain from ex pressing the depth of their grief and the poign ancy of their pain at parting with him. But the thought that his last moments with us should be embittered by lawsuits, and that be should go worried by Godfrey aud unpaid by Grau, cannot but intensify that grief and trans form it into terrible indignation against bis persecutors. For this reason we return to our suggestion, which will enable him to crush bis enomies with their own weapons, and depart from us in serene triumph. Let him Bue God frey for the sundries we liavo indicated above, and Godfrey will be heard from no more. Then let him turn upon Grau and add to his present bill ohargesfor extra notes, grace notes, notes of friendly advice, words of kindly counsel and little suppers after the opera, and the Mynheer Grau will soon be willing to pay his Balary promptly. If Brignolt has a sensible lawyer ou bis side ho will take our advice, fight fire with fire, whip Grau and Godfroy rouud the stump, - and give his client the victory. Oar Commercial Trumacitoni ? The Yankee Tyranny tn a New Plm?o. Our article in last Thursday's issue, show ing how completely the twelve Senators from the' six New England States, forming tho "black republican," or "Black Bay State Squadron," have usurped tho role tormerly filled by the fourteen Senators from the seven cotton States, known to history as tho "Black Gulf Squadron," has attracted, and yet con tinues to attract, very widespread and deep attention. This only illustrates that "truth is mighty and will prevail." We hove merely to call public attention to some great but neg lected fact, and the fact will assert its own importance. Hundreds of thousands of men in the Central and Western States, who never thought of the matter before, have now their eyes opened to the system of chioancry and orginized fraud by Which the twelve Now England Senators have imposed the whims and interests, the passions and bigotries of their section, in tho form of laws, upon the entire remainder of the Union. It only needs a voice in the theatre to cry "fire" when the fire is at its devastating work, and all will perceivo the burning odor; while, without such warning, some such scene may be re-cu acted as recently made a Golgotha of that Hispano- American cathodral in St Jago, Chile. ? Our twelve New England Senators, not content with imposing a very heavy portion of the revenue burthens of the country upon our whiskey and tobacco, in which the Now Eng land States have but the slightest interest, and not content with creating importation duties so heavy as to drive the trade hereto fore transacted legitimately in New York to be hereafter carried on by smugglers along the Canadian frontier, have also had the adroitness to impose the main balance of the weight of our taxation upon the commercial transactions which have their chief ccntro in this city. All ohecks, bills, bonds, gold and stock operations, invoices and other articles essential to commerce have to pay heavily to the national government ? those items, in Wall stroet alone, amounting to moro in a single week than throughout the whole balance of the loyal States in any average month. The candle is to bo burned at both ends, the people of the centre and Vest having chiefly to bear the costs of this war for the ascendan cy of Yankee ideas; while their commerce is ruined by the imposition of prohibitory duties in favor of New England manufac tures, and their eommoroial marine is swept from the seas, solely owing to the imbecility and supinenesa of the New England Secretary who is m&ihtaincd ? a gross laughing stock bo the world? at the head of our national navy. Our country is under the domination of Yankee ideas and bigotries. All the interests of the Central and Western States are sacri ficed to swell the profits of the Yankee manu facturing aristocracy. Wo are condemned to bear the chiet burthens of taxation produced by the war, while also submitting to the pro hibitory duties devised by Yankee greed. Our Senate is presided over by a Yankee, and has all its most important committees con trolled by members of the "Black Bay State Squadron." Our tmvy is deplorably misman aged by a Rip Van Winkle Yankoe, who only grunls and snores while the greatest harbors of our country are being blockaded by one or two contemptible privateers. We are in a war, of extent urfparallcled, for the supremacy of a "Yankee notion." We have had two Yankees at work in the task of depreciating our public credit by their mismanagement of our Treas ury; and, as if to cap the climax of all our other sufferings and ignominies, we find that our able-bodied population is assessed at twenty-six per cent, under the draft, while a quota of but twelve and a half per cent is de manded from the more favored sons of Massa chusetts and the remainder of the Yankee empire. "How long, 0 Lord ! how long shall thy servants sutler?" Tax Draft? How to Raise a Hckdred Thou sand Fionmo Mm.? .We bar* not much faith in the statement that the draft will net be en forced in New York because of the excess of ?earn en enlisted here in the naval service. Somo of these men may be elalmed by other counties, and other measures may be taken to deptfve the olty and county of New York of (ho boaefit of the patriotism of our oittoni in encouraging naval enlistments. The host way to secure the city af aiost a draft is for Ibo government to offer a bounty of one thousand dollars each to orery man who shall immediately enlist- T&h, with the local apd Stat* bpuutieo, will so the bogus to bo paty as to oompriso a snag little pfoporfy, which will alfbrd him a competency for life after the war Is over. By this means one hundred thousand fighting men can bo pat* In tljc Bold In a very styjrt time. Jfaeee are Jlist the men Grant no# Waft is; for, taring en ticed Lee flrom bis works at Petersburg to pro tect his railway oofluupalcatiqas, he feat aow got the reb^l genera! vr^iere wftn^ Mm? fo the open field, where Grant J* ,ur* *<> conquer. Let the government, we repv%*> offer this bounty of one thousand dollars to **oh men, and one hundred thousand fighting Will briskly respond to the munificent appeal, 'and New York get honorably out of the draft.

Thereforo tbe reference to Gov ernor Seymour in the language of the affidavit was couched In the words of the act, not with any intention of disrespect. Mr. Smith then read tbe Conscription act of 1863 and the amendatory act of 1804, tbe latter of which, at section twelve, provides ror the punishment of any person who shall lnelto to resist, or coursel or advise any resistance to, any enrolment, drati, kc., claiming tbat tUe publication of the articles in quostiou brought tho defendant within the provision of tbo act.

Ho bad failed to discover anything in the cotuplilnt to warrant this prosecution. It, however, the Commission er thought otherwise, Mr. Mullaly and his counsel were ready and would be happy to g>> bcfuro a jury of their countrymon. A series or auch acts as this has been ste.tdily increasing in gravity. Acts like this have been perpetrated and acqaletced In till those exercising this lawless power must deem tbe time near whon tbe format assault upon our liberty shall bo ordered. Tbe execu tive power baa now resolvod to try whether trial by jury, tbe hallowed palladium of liberty, can be eileotually employed to derive us of a free press. Tbat waa the experiment he desired to sea brought to a speedy Issue, the result of which will determine whether tho feipte of this country have anv peaceful means of defending the freedom won by their ratbers, or whether they art yet worthy of It. Mr. Smith briefly replied, and, having submitted tbe case, The Commissioner said that as Tar as be wss concerned tbe case stood at precisely the lame point It did when it was first brought before nim. The only question before him was where the lino or demarcation should be ilriwn botween tbe liberty of tbe press anil tbo abuse of that liberty.
