Moody Esq, Treasurer of the Commit tee appointed by the Hoard of Trade, to le celve contributions for the relief of the suffer ing Union people of East Tennessee, acknowl edges the receipt of $7,6(51.04: of which amount $6,756,50 was contributed by citizens of Portland. The expenses for postage stamps and envelopes was $20,48, leaving a nett bal ance of $7,640, 16, which was disposed of by remitting to Mr. Miller Esq., Treasurer of the East Tennessee Relief Association, Knoxville, Tenn., the sum of $7,181,16, and by the pay ment to Col.

Included in Ibis vote was the names of Messrs W. L. Southard and F. C. Moody of this city. The Cikcus.—On Saturday evening the crowd at the circus was Immense, the perfor mance fair, the order of the ring good—out side indifferent, the music passable, the trained horse excellent, the comic mule laughable, the steam carriage a cariosity, the jokes stale as usual, the “Billy Button” scene needlessly te dious, the clowns respectable, and the price of admission (85 cents) very low—provided it had been paid (o the visitors as compensation for three hours torture on the meanest and most insufferable seats that ever disgraced a pavil ion. Performances (Via afternoon and even ing. Maine Tkmpkuanck Advocate is the title of a new Temperance paper published in this city by John L. White, Esq., and Mr. Frank G. Rich. It is very neatly printed, its selections are interesting and appropriate and its editorials able and racy. The Advocate has the true ring and ought to be sustained. We learn Messrs. White and Rich are intend ing to devote their entire energies to the paper and are determined to merit success. Terms, $2.00 a year for a single copy, which is as low as it can be afforded at the present rates of printing materials and labor. Run Over.—Saturday afterneon, a* a gen tleman was driving a horse attached to a four wheeled chaise around the corner oi Fore and Centre streets, a lad backed himself directly under the wheels, one of which ran over him. The gentleman stopped his horse and jumped out to inquire as to the injury the lad had sustained, but could get no response from him except something that sounded like curses. The boy marched off, evidently very little in jured. It was his own carelessness that brought the injury upon him. Danger of Driving a IIuhsx without Blinders.—Saturday morning a horse, with out blinders, attached to a chaise, driven by two ladies, was frightened by a lady suddenly opening her sunshade. The horse backed, up set the chaise, throwing the occupants out, and then started off. He was soon stopped, but not before the vehicle was badly damaged. The ladies were unhurt. This is the third ac cident that has come to our knowledge within a short time occasioned by not putting blinders on the horse. Not in Tn* Bill.—At the Circus, Satur day afternoon.when Hr. Sherwood came tum bling into the ring, pretending to be very drunk and noisy, acting the character of “Pete Jenkins,” one of the Police, we believe it was a Deputy Marshal—who was present un dertook to arrest him. The roars of laughter that burst from she audience rather astonished the ofllcer, and it was not until some one in formed him that it was all “acting,” that he discovered bis mistake.

Our columns met the enemy about one mile east of Pumpkin Vine Creek, and we pushed them back about three miles to the point where the roads fork to Atlanta and Marietta. . Here Johnson has chosen a strong line and made hasty but strong parapets of timber and earth. Gen. Sherman’s right is at Dallas; the centre about three miles north. The country is densely wooded and broken—no roads of any consequence. We have had many sharp encounters, but nothing decisive. No dispatches from any other field of oper ations have been received to-day. (Signed) Edwin M. Stanton, Secretmry of War. Philadelphia, May 28.

No battle had taken place up to the time our in formant, an officer, left. Our left had crossed the Pamunky east of Sexton’s Junction. Our whole army was in glorious spirits, and were it not for giving news of a movement before It was completed we could send you some cheering news It is believed that Lee is be ing largely reinforced from Beauregard's and other armies. New Vobk, May 20. The Times’ Washington special dispatch of last evening says a colonel, who has just ar rived from the front, which ha left yesterday (Friday) morning, informs me thst during Thursday night and Friday morning Lee evacuated his strong position on the South Anna, and with bis whole army was in full re treat towards Richmond. Our troope are fol lowing up closely. We took a few prisoners.

FROM WASHINGTON. Remarks of the President to the Delegation of baptists—Guerrilla Raids Around Ferd rri.ksbury-Arrieal of Wounded Soldiers— Hospital A rrrngemsnts — t'on/irina - lions by the Senate—One Pinanres— Use. Dr. Chesvesr at the Capital. Washington, May 28. To-day a delegation consisting of Rev. Dr. Bride, Senator Doolittle and Hon. A. Hubble, waited upon President Lincoln, and presented him with a series of resolutions adopted by the American Baptist Home Mission Society, at a session recently held by them in Phila delphia. The Resolutions endorse the course of Pres ident Lincoln, and express the warmest wish es for bis welfare, and the welfare of the coun try. President Lincoln in reply spoke as fol lows : “ In the present very responsible position in which I am engaged, I have had great cause of gratitude for the support so unanimously given by all Christian denominations of the country, I have had occasion so frequently to address something like this assemblage, that I have said all that 1 had to say. This particu lar body is in all respects as respectable as any that have beeu presented to me. The resolutions I have merely heard, and I must therefore be allowed an opportunity to make a short response in writing.” The President then after giving each minister a cordial hand shaking, retired. Parties who reached here from Fredericks uurg to-oay, report that guerrillas continue to hover around the town in considerable num b®r*« Many ol them are also to be seen along the bauks of the Rappahannock. On Thursday evening the guerrillas, sup posing Fredericksburg had been evacuated, made a dash up to where some of our troops were iu the river bathing, and fired upon them, killing one and wounding two. They soon discovered that our forces held the town, and they immediately retired. A detachment of our cavalry were sent in pursuit, but were unable to overtake the marauders. The steamer City of Albany arrived at Al exandria to day from Port Royal, with 700 wounded on board. These men were wound ed on Tuesday and Wednesday last in fight ing on the North Anna River. To facilitate the transmission of medical supplies to points developed by emergencies, and to secure the proper distribution of med ical officers and their aasistauta where their servicea are most required, and to provide comfortable and available ho-pital accommo dations lor the sick and wounded of the West and Southweat, the office of tho Assistant Surgeon General has been established at Lou isville. The Senate iu executive session to day con firmed Col. S. Griffin, of the 0th New Hamp shire regiment, to be a firlgadier General, recommended by Gen. Grant lor gallantry in tbe eight days’ tights in the old Wilderness and Spottsylvania Court House; Col. George I). Ramsey to bo Chief of the Ordnance De partment of the United States Army, with the rank of Brigadier General; Col. Emery Upton, 121st volunteers, to be a Brigadier General, for services in the eight days’ fight | Wasuinutox. May 20. The Secretary of the Treasury hat directed the Assistant Treasurers of New York, Phila delphia and Boston to receive five per ceut. legal tenders, with unattached coupons, in payment for tbe 10-40’s. The subscriptions to this popular loan continue to flow in at the rate of a million a day. and if the new inter nal revenue and tariff laws were in full opera tion, the revenue from these sources Is thought, pay the entire expenses of the government. To provide in the mean time for the pay of the army, and the expenses of the great military unovementa now in progreas, (muds of the loan of 1881 to the amount of fifty or seventy-five millions will probably be ofl'ered to the highest bidder. ^ By the recent confirmation of the Seuate, Gen. Woodbury has been promoted to be a Lieut. Coloucl. and Gen. Q. A. Gilmore to be a Major iu the regular Corps of Engineers. The President has recognized John Hits as (V.usul General of the Swias Confederation at Waahlngton. Kev. Dr. Cheever, of N. Y., preached to-day in the Hall of the House on the right of rep resentation without regard to color or race as indispensable to a republican form of govern ment, as a matter of justice to the colored race, and as a question determining our des tiny as a nation. The Hall was crowded, many being unable to obtain admittance. The Speaker was applauded at the conclu sion. Dr. Cheever, and twelve or fourteen dele gates to the Cleveland Convention, left for Cleveland to-day. XXXVIII 00NGSE88—First Session. Washington, May 28. 8KNATK. The joint resolution to amend the charter of the city of Washiugton was taken up. The amendment allowing persons to be registered as voters who havo heretofore borne arms, without distinction of color, was rejected. The resolution was then adopted. The revenue bill was then considered, and the clause taxing spirits on was discussed. Mr. Sherman favored the House proposition of taxing domestic spirits on hand. Mr. Trumbull called for the yeas and nays on the clause striking out the tax on domestic spirits on hand, and it was adopted—yeas 25, nays 15. The Senate then went into executive ses sion and shortly after adjourned. from the Peninsula. New York, May 29. The Time*’ special dispatch from llermuda Hundreds says that a reconnoissance on Thursday developed the fact that the enemy were in full force in.tbeir entrenchment* in front of Gen. Butler’s position. The Times’ letter from Bermuda Hundred* of the 27th reports a reconnoissance of the rebel position on the prevlon day on the line ol Bake House Creek by Gen.
