Another Victory in Mobile Bay?Fort Mor gan in Oar Possession?The Intelligence from Rebel Sonrcos?Reconnoissance To ward s the City?Obstructions Formidable bnt not Insurmountable?Latest from Sheridan?Enemy Leaving the Shenaa* doah Valley. Ollical War Balletin. Washington, Aug.2S, 1961. To Major General Dix, New York : A despatch from General Grant, jnst re ceived, states that the Richmond papers of yesterday (27th) announce that Fort Morgan is In onr possession. It is not stated whether the fort was surrendered, or whether it waa Mown up. Another despatch gives the following extract from the Richmond Examiner of yesterday: "Fort Morgan is in the enemy's possession; whether blown up or evacuated is not known." General Sheridan, in a despatch, dated yes terday at half-past two p. m., reports : "The enemy left my front last night, falling b ck to Smithfleld or Middleway. We cap tured 101 prisoners yesterday, and inflicted a loss of 150 killed and wounded There have been a few feints to cross the river by cavalry at Willlamsport, but there was no strength shown. The indications to-day are that they will fall back out of the Valley." Other reports state that the enemy is leaving the Shenandoah Valley. Nothing has been received from General Sherman for two days. Ebwin M. Stanton, Secretary of War. Early's Movements. New York, Aug. 2S.?A despatch from cav alry headquarters, dated Saturday night, states no rebels have yet crossed the Potomac river, and all is quiet at Shepherdstown, Williams port and Uagerstown. A Harper's Ferry des patch to the Herald, dated the 27tb, states that careful reconnoissances that morning devel oped the fact that the rebels were withdrawn from our front during the night. Our cavalry pushed on and occupied Charlestown without meeting the enemy. Opinions prevail that Grant's recent move ment necessitated the recalling of Early to Richmond; while some conjecture that be in tends crossing into Maryland at Shepherdstown or Willlamsport. From the Blockading Squadron. Cairo, Aug. 20.?'The steamers Continental and Leviathan, from New Orleans on the 20th, have arrived. A communication, dated Blockading Squad ron, Mobile Bay, Aug. 16th, says: Naval reconnoiesances towards Mobile found formidable but not insurmountable ob structions. Besides batteries, rams and sunken vessels, there are very strong casemates mount ing ten guns. In all the spaces between batte ries and vessels, and on both shores, piles are driven, the tops of which are sawed off just below the surface of the water, and have heavy iron bolts in them sharpened at the upper end so as to tear off the bottom of a boat passing over them Men are seen working on two rams. The wharves are covered with steamboats: among them four English-built craft, probably block ade-runners. The streets of the city are de serted. The rebels are csmpletely cut off from their rear works. The general health ot the army and navy is good. The fleet is still pounding at Fort Mor gan with considerable effect. The Preliminaries to the Attack on Fort Morgan. New York, August 2a.?The steamer Charles Scott, from New Orleans on the 20th, has arrived. She reports that when off Charleston, on the 26th, she heard havy firing There is no army or naval news in ibe Now Orleans papers. Captain Bulkley report? that when the steamer Thomas Scott was passing Mobile Bay our land lorces had planted mortars wittUu three hundred yards from Fort Morgan. Admiral Farragut's Report. The Navy Department is in receipt of die Satches from Admiral Farragut, dated Mobile ay, August 12, giving a detailed report of his entrance Into Mobile Bay on the 5th Inst. He says, notwithstanding the loss of life, particu larly on the Hartford, and the terrible disaster to the Tecumseh, the result of the fight was a glorious victory, and he has reason to feel proud of the officers, seamen, and marines of ibe squadron under his command, for it has hever fallen to the lot of an officer to be thus situated and thus sustained. Regular discipline will bring men to any amount of endurance; but there is a natural fear ot hidden dangers, particularly so when so awfully destructive of human life as the torpedo, which requires more discipline to overcome. He says that It was only at the ur gent request of the chaplains and the com manding officers that he yielded, the Brooklyn being the leading ship of the line, as the had four chase guns and an ingenious arrangement tor picking up torpedoes, and because in their judgement the flagship ought'not to be too much exposed. This he believes to be an error, for. apart from the fact that exposure is one of the pen alties of rank In the navy, it will always be the aim of the enemy to destroy the flagship, and, as appeared in the sequel, such attempt was very persistently made; but Providence did not permit it to be successful. In the course of his narrative the Admiral says: " As 1 bad an elevated position in the main rigging, near the top, I was able to overlook not only the Hartford, but the other vessels of the fleet. 1 witnessed the terrible effect of the enemy's shots, and the good conduct of the men at their guns, and although no doubt their hearts sickened, as mine did, when their ship mates were Btruck down beside them, yet there was not a moment's hesitation to lay their com rades aside, and spring again to their deadly work." FROM THE SOUTHWEST. The Union Loss in Memphis?Capture of a Steamer by Guerrillas?The Rebels Ac tive in Arkansas. LonsviLLB. August 27.?General Wash burne has issued an order permitting cotton now in Memphis to be shipped North, also establishing supply stores in the District of West Tennessee. The bei>t estimate placed on our los? in the recent raid on Memphis at 15 killed, 50 woun ded, and 140 missing, the latter Including 89 citizens. The raiders are said to have taken 2ti9 prisoners. At Hernando, on Sunday night, the rebel loss was 50 killed, 100 wounded, and 30 mis sing. Gen. Washburne compliments the officers and men of the Memphis militia, for their prompt and soldierly conduct in the defence of the city against Forrest. The Government transport J. o. Miller was captured, plundered and burned on the nth in the Arkansas river, between Pine Bluff and Little Rock, by guerrillas. All persona on board were taken prisoners. Report of a Mutiny?Pine Blulf, Ark., At tacked. St. Louis, Aug. *28.?A report prevailed last night that the rebelGen. Shelby, with six thou sand men, was about seventy miles below Hoboken, on the Iron Mountain railroad, but the military authorities have not been able to verify it. The Vicksturg Herald of the Gth has an ac count ol a mutiny of a part of the 2d Illinois cavalry, on the steamer Olive Branch, which was only quelled by the prompt action of the commander of the gunboat Benton. Six of toe mutineers were placed in irons on the Benton, and the remainder disarmed and seat ?p the river under a strong guard. The cause ol the B52&5 Tom"Dd.W. Bluff, Ark., ?y mj. Shelby and Marmadake have made an at tack on Pine Bluff, and that reinforcements have been sent to the latter place from Little Rock. Important Military Order.

The Mats Meeting. Chicago, Ann. 27.?The mass convention of the Conservative National Union men was largely attended this afternoon. The conven tion met in Bryan Hall Hon. Amos Kendall was elected president. The vice presidents re presented all the States North and South, with the exception of three or four. Resolutions were adopted denouncing the policy of the Administration, *c. Speeches were made bv Gen. Coombs, of Kentucky, ex Gov. Weller, of California, and others. The enthusiasm for McClellan continues to ihe last. There are many rumors floating about; among others that the New York delegation is doubtful; that the Ohio delegation will bolt if McClellan is nominated; that the Kentucky delegation will bolt if the Guthrie delegation is recognized; that Mr. Lincoln has signified his willingness to withdraw, &c., &c. [ANOTHER DISPATCH.] CniOAGO, Saturday, Angnst 29.?The entire New York delegation to the Democratic Con vention are in the city to-night. The attendance of outsiders is not very large, althongh very respectable in point of numbers. The discus cussions to-day have been very animated. The only point made iB McClellan or anti-McClel lan. I think it safe to say that McClellan will be nominated. No one is strongly urged for Vice President. The platform will say enough about peace to satisfy the peace men, and not enough to make war Democrats bolt, at least not openly. I)ean Richmond goes for McClellan. It is possible that Governor Seymour may move in convention to nominate McClellan by ac clamation. Endorsement of McClellan. Chicago, August 28.?Among the resolutions adopted at the mass convention at Bryan Hall yesterday afternoon, was one recommending the nomination of General McClellan as the most suitable candidate for the Democratic party for the Presidency, and ex-Governor William B. Campbell, of Tennessee, for the Vice Presi dency. This resolution was seconded by Hons. James Irutbrie, and Leslie Coombs, of Ken tucky, John B. Haskin, of New York, and Mr. Rollins, of Missouri. The resolution was unanimously adopted and the convention then adjourned. Some Indications of a Bolt. Chicago, Aug. 88.?The various delegations to the National Democratic Convention are now full, the vacancies existing yesterday having been filled by the selections of substitutes. No apparent changes have occurred in the views of different delegations as to the most availa ble candidates, with the exception that McClel lan seems to gain strength with the New Eng land delegates. The session of the New York delegation last night was prolonged until after midnight; but, although the McCllellanltes are in the majority, no definite conclusion was ar rived at, and it was finally agreed to take a decisive vote at nine o'clock to-morrow morn ing. Some of the McClellan delegations from the East and Pennsylvania talk sharply of the course pursued by the New York delegation. They claim that McClellan has a large majori ty of the whole vote of the convention; that no such vote can be concentrated on any other man; and that if New York would only speak promptly and emphatically for him, his nomi nation would be made by acclamation. Governor Seymonr continues to hold the po sition that he is not a candidate. This has led many to declare for McClellan who previously held Seymour as the first choice. There are many ontelders from New York who say that Seymour has no right to deny his friends the privilege of using his name. They are backed by ultra peace men who agree that McClellan is too much of a war Democrat, and that the country needs and demands a states man, not a soldier. Notwithstanding all this, there is still a firm impression that Seymour will be chosen presidentol the convention, and that be will nominate McClellan, and it is gen erally believed that should this occur, any op position to him will be too weak to amount to an,fnere,ls some talk that, in the event of Mc Clellan's nomination, a bolt will occur and another convention be called, and then an nltra peace man nominated. The McClellanites disbelieve this, and say that, should such a course be pursued, Its only effect will be to strengthen their candidate. It snonld have been stated in the dispatch of this morning that the conservative Union men withdrew the recommendation of ex-Govenor Campbell, of Tennessee, for Vice President, just previous to the adoption of their resolu tion. Millard Fillmore for McClellan. Chicago, August 28.?Very little change in the expected programme of to-morrow has taken place. Tms afternoon there was a meet ing of the McClellan delegates for consultation, and after a comparison ot views, it was found that representatives from fifteen or sixteen diflerent States preferred Seymonr to McClel lan, favoring his nomination by way of com promise between the peace men and the war Democracy. Most of them, however, are members ot delegations that are required to vote as a unit. Seymour, this afternoon, positively de clines the nse of his name, and nobody else Is talked of for president of the Convention. The positive withdrawal of Seymour's name enccurages the McClellanites to hope that he will receive a two-thirds vote on the first or second ballot. A letter written by Millard Fillmore to Hi ram Ketchum expresses the hope that Mc Clellan will receive the nomination. It is published in the Times to-day. The New York delegation was in session to night, and, after a tree interchange of opinion, it was virtuallv resolved to cast the vote of the State for McClellan. The final vote of the delegation will be taken to-morrow morning. WELDON RAILROAD STILL HELD. Extensive Skirmishing in Progress?Arri val of Union and Rebel Wounded Sol diers. Fortress Mowroe, August 2t?.?The United States hospital steamer De Molay arrived from City Point with 300 Union soldiers and 150 rebel soldiers, all wounded. They will leave for Philadelphia this evening Arrivals lrom City Point represent that heavy skirmishing was going on all day yes terday between the enemy and the left wing of the Potomac Army. An artillery skirmish was also In progress on General Butler's right when the boat left this morning. The Weldon railroad is held by onr forces, and no fears are entertained of being dislodged from that strong and important position. French Blockade of Mexican Ports Raised.

THE FIGHT ON THE WELDON RAIL ROAD. Particulars of the Affair?Warren's Posi tion Considered Impregnable?The Wel don Railroad to be Held. [Correspondence Philadelphia Inqairer.] Headquarters Army ok Tnn Potomac. Acgust 20.?The action at Ream's Station, in WBicb, on onr side, the 1st and 2d divisions, 2d corps, were engaged yesterday, is an event ot which I hardly know how to speak. Many look upon it as a disaster, and there are some reasons for regarding it in that light, if we were to consider it without regard to the other side of the picture, the punishment infileted on the enemy. But when we recollect that In three successive charges the enemy was re {>ulsed with great slaughter, and that their osses in killed and wonnded greatly outnum bered onrs, It is evident that our occasion for regret is on aoconnt of the adverse moral effect of a reverse more than the losses actually entailed thereby. Even the guns they captured were dearly paid for In killed and wonnded, and we can far better afford to lose guns than they can afford to lose men. The 2d corps bad bnt just returned from th extreme right on the James river when, o i Monday morning, the first and second divis Ions of it were started off on a long, wet and muddy march to the extreme left, on the Wei don railroad. From that time np to yesterday they had been hard at work tearing ap the rail road, burning the ties, twisting the rails, level ing embankments, destroying bridges aad cul verts, and as thoroughly as possible demotlob ing everything that could be of any service to the enemy in facilitating the repair or the road, in case it should again fall into their bands. On Thursday mora tag Gen. Gibbons' dlvis ion vu to bar* moved south ward from Reams* Station to continue the destruction of the road, still further towards stony Creek, but Ooionel Spear1* brifade ol Kant's cavalry, which was picketing In that direction, beta* attacked by the enemy, and this circumstance intimating the probability that our operations on tbe rati, road might meet with interruption, the order to move out was countermanded. Subsequently tbe opinion that tbe only force the enemy bad there was cavalry appears to have been formed, and Oeneral Gibbons was again ordered to move down the road, which he commenced to do at about half-past nine a. m. Starting along a road running to the left or east of the railroad, they turned to the right and crossed tbe latter about hair a mile below Beam's, and had not proceeded half a mile further before the cavalry was checked by meeting a line of rebel skirmishers. Advancing a skirmish line parallel with thac on the right ol the railroad, its left flank rest ing near the same. Colonel Smyth poshed back the enr-my's skirmishers until, on arriving in sight ol a narrow swampy range extending from the railroad obliquely to the rtgtu, and with its acute angle on the side next to us, h* iound their troops in line of battle beyond it and protected by small breastworks. Tbe enemy immediately charged upon our skirmishers, and drove them back to our mala body. Colonel Smyth now reported to Gea. Oibton tbe fact that the enemy had a consid erable force of infantry present, and awaited further instructions. He was ordered to push foi*ward again and ascertain what force there was opposed to us, and accordingly he advanced, and again drovn back tbe enemy to the ravine, and at that point was again brought to a stand and compelled, to retire. The pickets of Milee' division were driven in and a charge was then made on tbe en trenchments, which, however, was quickly repulsed. Ab soon as it became evident by the attack on Gen. Miles' position that tbe enemy were In considerable force, Gen. Gibbon was ordered to fall back from his advanced position on the left, and connecting bis left with the right of the 1st division, to form a line for the protec tion ol tbe left flank and tbe rear. Tbe junc tion of his right with miles' left was near the point where onr breastworks crossed the rail road, and thence bis line extended In such a curve as to bring bis left nearly opposite Miles' riibt, tbe line of the latter fronting towards the west, while ibat of Gibbons faced to the east and southeast. The enemy having been repulsed, our skir mishers followed them as they fell back, ad vancing nearly to tbe position they had for merly held, and capturing a namber of prison eis. Shortly after tbe enemy again advanced and were again driven back with heavy loss, and their third assault, made about 4 p. m., was attended with a like satisfactory result. In the lirst three charges the enemy us?id no artillery, but about five p.m., they opened a heavy, concentrated Are from a number of bat teries, pouring a storm of shell and other mis siles over tbe entire amphitheatre included within our lines. After about twenty minutes of this artillery lire, the enemy again made their appearance In front of General Miles' division, their assault being directed mainly against his centre. Along nearly the entire, andespeciallv In front of the Fiftn Brigade, the woods are very close to our entrenchments, which circumstance was favorable to the enemy in that it enabled them to form comparatively near our works without being discovered. Emerging trom the woods they advanced in two lines of battle, with a force thought to have comprised Wilcox's entire division, of Hill's Corps, and two brigades of Heth's. Our ar tillery and musketry greeted them, as before, w itb a rapid Are, but without checking their progress. On they came with bayonets fixed, and without firing a shot. They approached our lines, gained the out Eide of our entrenchments, and at some points a hand to band conflict ensued over tbe top of the breastworks, our men beating back the Rebels with tbeir bayonets, as they attempted to climb over. Hut soon it was found that our line was broken near tbe center, and tbe gap once made rapidly grew wider, until nearly the entire line was swept back, leaving our breastworks and artillery in the hands of tbe enemy, from the left of the First Division to a point considerably to the right of tbe oent?r. The batteries left behind were batteries B, 1st Rhode Island, Lt. Perrine; Capt. Sleeper's bat tery, 10th Mass , and McKnigbt's Battery, the 12th N. Y. Independent. Their horses had alt been sbot early in the action, aad the sudden ness with which our men fell back rendered it impossibel to get off the guns. Capt. Sleeper, of the loth Massachusetts, had been wounded during the afternoon, and was not in comr mand when his battery was lost. It is said that the 4th New York heavy artillery, or a considerable portion of them, stood their ground on tbe left when our line gave way, and rushing to the guns of the battery nearest to them, worked It till the enemy came on wd ?orrosaAM thra, c&ptaTlns at eoaaldetsMe poition of them along with the battery. General Miles and other officers of bis division, with great coolness and intrepidity, set to work to rally the men, who were pour ing down from the left and hurrying to the rear, and in a short time succeeded in forming a line with its right resting against our breast works, near the right of our former line, at the point up to which that line had been held. At the same time General Hancock ordered the 2d division to be faced about, and cheering and urging the men forward, led tbem In person In a charge a double quick across the space be tween tbeir line and that of Gen. Miles, which at the widest part was probably three-fourths of a mile in breadth. The charge, which was made under a heavy fire both of musketry and artillery, was gal lantly executed, and in conjunction with the line rallied by Gen. Miles, instantly checked tbe enemy and regained our intrenchments for some distance further towards the left. After the enemy bad been checked in the centre and along that portion of tbe line which they had chiefly directed their attack, tbe greater part of the 2d division had returned to their own intrenchments, and the combat seemed to have nearly died out, when suddenly the enemy, working their way round towards our left, struck tbe right flank and rear ot Col. Murphy's brigade, which was driven to wards tbe left. Perhaps it will be better understood if I compare our line to a horse shoe, and say they were driven towards the left heel. There was again considerable con fusion for a time, but our men again rallied and the enemy was soon chocked. By this time it was dark, and the fighting ended. McKnight's battery was but a short distance to tbe left of the portion of tbe line re captured, and after dark Colonel Smyth sent Colonel Moore, of the 14th Pennsylvania, to bring off the guns. He succeeded in bringing off three, and the other was subsequently re covered. About S p. m. we commenced retiring, which we accomplished witboutmolestation. Nothing lost in abandoning our position, not a shot being fired by tbe enemy, we sacrifice nothing in abandoning tbe position at Ream's Station, except, perhaps, the destruction of a few milee more of the railroad, and when our detached situation, and the force the enemy brought against us are considered, it is by no means surprising that we should have been for a time overpowered. Tbe number of men opposed to us is estimated at from fifteen to seventeen thousand, and comprising Heath's and Wil cox's divisfon of Hill's corps, and Field's division, with two other brigades of Ander son's, formerly L?ongstreet's corps. There can be little doubt that A the engage ment tbey outnumbered ns two to one, for the men of the two divisions we had there were so exhausted by fighting, hard marching, and their laborious work on the railroad, that their effective strength had been materially reduoed. The enemy will very naturally pique them selves on the capture of onr breastworks and artillery, but if they be allowed to claim a vic tory, lt is of a kind that they may pray to be excused from experiencing too frequently. Another correspondent gives a somewhat similar account of operations. He says: Several pieces are reported to be recaptured by onr men, the enemy not being able to get off with them. Late in the day reinforcements were sent to Hancock, but they did not reach him la time. Warren's position is considered impregnable, and no attack was made on any portion of his ? line during the entire day. While tbe operation or the 19th eorps reliev ing the 10th corps on tbe extreme right In front of Petersburg was going on, we maintained merely a picket line there for some time, and the rebels could easily have advanced and captured our batteries. Eitber they did not know enough, or else was fearful of making any demonstration there while tbeir troops were massing on the left of our line. But little firing took place on either onr right or centre dnring the day, bat ail Thursday night an ar tillery duel was kept up, which resulted in. nothing of importance. It will be seen that the entire of T*oagstreefs corps cannot be In the Valley, as Pickett's di vision, attached to that corps, la before Gen. Butler.
