I By luioponJeut Lino tu Advertiser.] Con/irmathtn of Thursday's Victory — fee's Scressltlrs — l.osses - Prisoners. Washington, May I I. TUe victory of Thursday is not only offic ially continued, but details of Lee's retreat on Thursday night, and Cien. Grant's rapid ad vance during yesterday, are at hand. The brief dispatch at hand to-night states that yesterday Gen. Grant's headquarters were on the south bank of the Po river. Information has reached us that Lee forti fied both North and Mouth Anna Rivers be fore Grant crossed tbe ltapidan. Some rebel officers say I.ee must surrender if closely pursued; others stoutly aver that lie will tight until every man is disabled.— Their statements as to provisions iu the rebel army are equally contradictory. Careful investigation fixes our losses at 20, 000, which Grant endorses as coirect. This includes all losses hy capture and straggling. Their loss is largely compensated by rcin forceinenls already received bp Migel, and enough more are ou the way to make up for our entire loss. An officer who left the field yesterday plac es the prisoners In our hands at 10.000. May 15Wi, 2 .1. M.—Rumors prevail of a great victory south of the Po River, hut at this hour cannot be confirmed. Strength of Army-~fee's Lines of Communis cation cut off’. Boston, May 14. A special to the Journal says the situation is eucouraging. On Friday morning the rebels fell back, and up to ;! o’clock ot Fiidayour advance guard failed to find them iu force. The Army of the Potomac has lost lu-avily, hut it is now stronger than when it crossed the Rapid.iu. Neither are our other armies, each operating against the rebel capital, idle. One hy one the lines of retreat from Rich mond hare been cut, and each one severed di minishes tlie chance ol receiving supplies by those iu that beleaguered city. There is authority for believing that on Fri day the only railroad leading from Richmond available for the receipt of supplies or for re treat, was the Danville Railroad. The rebels may escape over this into the regions of North Carolina, unless Grant's strategy is completed by its occupation. Mhould that road be des troyed, the rebels must cut their way through encircling armies or capitulate. Jlt-hel Gen. Stua'rt Reported Shot. Washington, May 15—12 15 P. M.

M*artlrulav» of thr Latr Xaral Kuyayrment in AJhrmarlr Soontl. New York, May 13. Interesting details of the late attack upon the rebel ram Alberinarle are contained in the Herald s correspondence from on board the Sassacus. The ram came down the Roanoke river, accompanied by two other steamers, on the afternoon of the f»th lust, the Miami and our picket boats lulling hack liefore them. One of the rel>el steamers, on seeing the Mat tabesseh, Sassacus, and Moy smensing, rang ing towards the rsm, turned about and ske daddled. Our three gunboats made for the rain and her remaining consort, the Matta besseli giving her a full broadside, followed by the oilier two, who gave her the same dose, hut no damage was perceptible to the raut. Ttie consort was captured by a' broadside from the Sassacus aud was anchored. The .Sassa cus was then got under full headway and run on the ram, striking her fairly amidships on the starboard side, forcing her side dow n bo that the water flowed over her deck. She was thus- kept, the Sassacus pushing her be fore her in hopes that one of the other vessels could attack her on the opposite side. If this could have been done sin' would have been captured, as she could uot use her gun- at all. The Sassacus kept a constant fire upon her aud put two shots into her forward port. She finally worked clear of the Sassacus and the pivot shot from her—the mu/.zle almost touch ing our bow—entered abalt the stem and passed through the vessel. The second went nearly through the vessel diagonally, from the starboard side clear through the boilor and eng ne room, smashing tilings generally. The steam filled the ship instantly, but the men kept to their posts like heroes, firing contin uously into her open ports. Hand grenades were thrown into her and our men w ho were stationed to repel boarders, po -red in such a murderous musketry tire as to drive llie rebels from their guns and compel them to close the ports. The ram retreated aril was pursued by the other vessels with an incessant fire until night. On hoard the Sassacus three were so severe ly wounded or scalded, that they died. Six were seriously aud three slightly scalded, aud five were wounded. The Inst Hours of tint. Wadsworth. Nkw York May 15. The Herald's correspondent on the battle Held, under date of May 15th, 0 I’.
