THE OFFICIAL DESPATCHES, Secretary Stanton to Major General Ola* Washington, June 2? 12rl5 P. M. Major General Drx:? A despatch from General Grant's headquarters, dated yesterday, Jane 1, at ten A. M., has been received by this Department. It states that abont live P. M. yesterday (May 31) General Sheridan, (erceiving a force of rebel cavalry at Coal Har bor, which proved to bo Fitzhugh Lee's division, attacked, and after a hard fight routed it, together with Ciingman's brigade of infantry, which came to Lee's support. Sheridan remained in posses don of the place. He reported at dark that he bad a considerable number of prisoners, and that thero were many rebel dead and wounded on the fleld. He was ordered to hold the position, and ^ at ten P. M. the Sixth corps set out to occupy it. We have not yet heard from Wright or General Bherldan this morning, and do not know whether the former got his troops to thoir destination, i Smith must be close upon Wright's column. This morning the enemy are also moving a heavy j eolnmn in the samo direction. The order has just gone to Warren to fall upon their flank. Wilson had a fight last evening near Hanover Court House with Young's brigade of cavalry. He routed Young, killing and capturing many; but thero has been a good deal of artillery firing in that direction this morning. Wurren reported last night that in his fight of Monday afternoon, near Bethesda church, Colonel Tyrrell, Thirteenth Virginia, and Colonel Williss, commanding Pegram's brigade, wore, killed. Co1 Christian, Forty-ninth Pennsylvania, was wounded and captured; so was the assistant adjutant gene <al of Ramsey's brigade? name not reported. 'Ten ather commissioned officers were captured and . osventy privates. Sixty rebels were buried on the leid. In our centre Burnsido reports his advance line as being this morning (1st) within a mile and a half of Meehanicsville. Mo other military intelligence has been received fey this Department since yesterday. EDWIN M. STANTON, Secretary of War. TUB MCOND DISPATCH. W ib Dbpabtusnt, ) Washington, June 2?9:30 P. M. J To MWjor General Dix:? ? despatch from General Grant, dated this ?orning (June 2), at Bethesda church, seven O'clock A. If., has jnst been received. It stateB that yesterday afternoon an attack was ordered to be made on our left, at Coal Harbor, |jy the Sixth orps and the troops under Smith, Warren, Burnsido and Hxncock being held in readiness to advance in their respective fronts. The attack was made with spirit about five P. M., Continuing until after dark, and resulting in ?nr carrying the enemy's workB on tho right of ? the Sixth corps, where we still hold them, and also the flret line in front of Smith. The latter, however, were commanded in tho rear, which Made those carried untenable. The enemy made repeated assaults on each of the corps not engaged In the main assault, but were repulsed with loss in every instance. Several hundred prisoners wero taken; but I v cannot say what number, nor estimate either our's or the enemy's casualties. During the night the enemy made several a* rttalts to regain what they had lost, but failed. I \Vo despatches from any other quarter have ytfr&bed tbe Department to-day. ED WIN M.

Bat oar y^topa wero aa steady and unflinch log aa there, and tbe crowning triumph to our arm* as decalve and brilliant. Ewell's oorpa fought against aa. Never did rebel troopa fight with mora desperation? nover wera rebel troopa more severely punished. To nlgbt tba battle field is oocupied by our troopa, and tba discomfited enemy baa left many of bis dead and wounded la our bands. BSFORB TBI IITTU. Before writing my account or this battle I will briefly recite tbe events preceding It, Early Id tba morning the corps advanced about two miles from tbe position we occupied dorlng tbe nlgbt. Very slight resistance was met in this advanco. This forward movement brought tbe entire corps across the Tolopatomoy crook, on tbe ?oath bank. nwsswa m tolopatomot. -The creek is winding, narrow and shallow, with preel pltous banks and marshy on either side. It Is surprising so little opposition was made to our crossing, for, had thoro beeojany thins like vigorous resistance at this point, the crossing could have been made a difficult one for ttf. BEOONNOISSAHCB, Safely across tbe crook, Colonel Harding's brigade, of General Crawford's division* was shortly ordered forward to reconnoitre the position of affairs on the Itocbanloavlll* pike, close In oar front. They came npon Stewart's cav alry, evidently intent on the same mission and supported by Infantry. Borne skirmishing ensued and Colonel Har ding's brigade fell back to tho division line. General Cutler's division followed after General Crawford's, and Captain Mink's battery, Company B, First New York, aided the reoonnolssauco by shelling tbe enemy where* ver be showed himseir. Till REBELS ATTACK CRAWFORD. About two P. M tbo enemy attacked General Craw ford's division, still In advance, upon which, in com pliance with orders not to bring on a general engage ment, he loll back to oar main lino. SKIRMISHING. From this line, except occasional skirmishing, every thing was very quiet. There was almost a porfect lull for an hour. Then came the attack? the storm? the day's battle. TUB GKNERAL WGAOEMENT? TBB BATTLB tWS. It was six P. M. Our corps wu In line or battle? General Griffin's division on tbo right, Genoral Cutler In the centro and General Crawford on tho left of tho army line. General Ournslde connected with our right. Tbe enemy assaulted our line. It was a general and sudden attack. They advanced In two lines of battle and heavy skirmish lino. Simultaneous with their open ing volley of musketry eau3 solid shot and shell from the angry mouths of a score aud more or hostile cannon. Firm and unshaken as a wall of brass stood our men. In their hasto the rebel assailants shot too high, and harmlessly whistled their missiles over our battle line. Schooled to sorb sudden attacks and ready for It, our mon coolly waited to return tbe flro. It was a most murder ous volley. Tbe assaulting column wore staggcrod and fell back. Lieutenant Rittenhous' battery, Company D, Ftfth United States artillory; Lieutonant Richardson's, Company D, First New Vorlt artillery; Lieutenant Wal cotUs, Company C, Third Massachusetts artillery, and Lieutenant Bucks, Company L, First New York artillery, i which have been In position, opened responsive to the enemy's cannon. UNTIL AFTER PARK TOE BATTLE BAGED. I Assault after assault was made by the desperate foe, but carta tlmd our troops hurled him back, bleeding and discomfited. (Jpon General Crawford's division the assaults wero more repeated and more fierco. Tbo enemy songht to turn bis left, but bere each time was handsomely repulsed; and more than special glory was won by tbe men, meeting and oxpelllng tbcio agf nulls. Tbo Pennsylvania reserves behaved magnificently. GENERAL LOCKWOOD'S TROOP*. In tho division, and holding the extreme loft , was Gen eral Txv.ikwood and his troop? ? most or them to-day (or the first time under fire. They behaved yko veterans Tho post of dangor and havoc was theirs and they held it with unflinching tenacity. lieutenant bcck's barest. In preventing tho turning our lort Lioutenant Buck's battery did inestimable service. The battery was posted by a bouse near General Crawford's headquarter*. Most persistent effort was made by the onemy to silence It. Tho robel sharpshooters essayed to pick oil tho can nooiors, and throe rebel batteries turnod thoir fire upon It. So hot was tbo firs that tho house was buraed and all Iho outbuilding adjacent; but neither battery or mon yielded their position. An Idoa of tbo severity of the coutest at this point may begathcrod from tUO fact that after tho light one hundred and thirty doad rebels were found In front of Goneral Crawford's headquarters. 1 at all the batteries did well and so all the divisions. Colo I nel Kltching's brigade of heavy artillery ? as yet novlcr3 I in the field? stood their ground with tho rosolutonoss of I veturan campaigners. This brigudo alone caotured eighty prisoners. GENERAL WARREN. General Warren seouaei to be omnipresont. One mo ment found him at ono end of tho lino atd the next at the other end, and always where tho battlo raged the fiercest. It is unnecessary to say that Gooorals Griffin, Culler and Crawford, commanding divisions, handled their men with their accustomod skill, and by personal daring, coolness and gallantry Inspired their troops with the coolness and courago also esseullal to successfully resist and beat back tbo enemy. TUB BSgrLT? OCR TOSSES. The contost closed with our having driven the enemy, as stated above, and occupying tbe battle ground. O'tr lonsos are estimated at two hundred killod, wounded and missing. Among the killed was Major Elliott, commanding tbe Sixteenth Michigan regiment, lie was shot through the body. Through all the battles or the |>rosent campaign bo had participated, and there bad bad bis roglmcnt. He was a young man of One talents. A splendid military career was opening before him, bat be is one ol thousands who bavo fallen sacrifices to this cruel war; but whose bravo deeds will make Immortal their namos Id history. A NARROW KSCAPE. Major Roebling, of Genoral Warron's staff, at ono time found himself surrounded by rebols. On every side bo was grooted with summons to surrender. He had no notion of complying wltb such summons without at least a struggle, and It was woll ho did, for at this moment our column pressed up, driving the enemy and opening to bim an avonuo of escape. THE ENEMV'S LOSSES. I have referred to our losses. Those or tbe enemy were very much hoavl?r? probably not less than fllteen hundred, if tho dead found on the field after tbo fight Is any oriterion by which to Judge of tho number of wounded. Wo took two hundred prisoners, among tbom ton commissioned officers. A RFIIEL GENERAL AND TWO COLONELS RILLED? THE REnEL I CO* HAN PER. Among theli dead are eaid to have been found a rebel general and two colonels. Prisoners all unite In say'-if that tbe whole of Ewdl'i corps was engaged against us. CKNRKAL Lrs SICK AND GENERAL EWEt L IB COMMAND. The corps, they say, however, Is commanded by Gene rsl Parly, and that General Ewell is In command of tbe army, General I ce beinR ick In Riohmond. A rumor bos prevailed that General I.oo was wounded la the leg at Spottsylvanla Court House, but it is not authenticated. There can bo no doubt, however, of the fact that be docs not oommi.nd tbe rebel army at present, whether his absence Is tho result of sickness, ss alleged, or from , bolng wounded. QCTBT RESTORED. Everything Is quiet as I closo my despatch, excepting occasional tiring between pickets. Our wounded have all been removed from tbe Oekl, and are now In the corps hospitals, which, however, (or seme unaccountable rea son, are live miles In the rear, thas precluding my send ing with ibis a list of their names.

A detail was landed with difficulty, and was soon engaged in replanklnj the bridge with railroad ties. The railroad bridge, which had been rrossed by Sheridan on his late raid, was found to have been completely dostroyed by tho rebel', and the corps of engineers were Immediately si work upou lt,a.sis'ed by the Oao Hundred and Thirty ninth Now York. Three hours after our landing a groat change was elToot'd In the appearance of the r'ace. It again boom* the Whito House of McClelian, with tho scene of busy life and its Innumerable bathers.

I nave rocclved letters from Monterey dalcj on tho 12th ultimo, and with pleasure scad job extracts of choir contents, wblsb may prove Interesting to roijr readers, as they give, from a vory roli ib!o scurco, an Insight Into theststoof affairs at the seat of the national government of Mexico and tho present and future condition and move ments of lis armies against tbe French Invaders. Tbo supremo and legitimate government of Mexico his been perfectly well installel tu Monterey. Tbo Cabinet bas not been changed, and *!e<wr?. Lordo, Negrcte and Ygleslas still bold their offices as Secretaries of Foreign Afluirs, War and Finance. Mr. Frieto has been nomi nated Postmaster General. General Doblado, with threo thousand well organized mea, keeps tbo Important post of SalMlo; three thousand more garrison Monterey; and evory day heavy reiu'orro ments of infantry and cavalry are being jent to the former place, whouco a division was to leave ocslntt San Luts Polos 1. Mejia had retired from Matohuaia to Potosl, closely followed by guerillas. The recapture of Tamplco had been resolved on, for which purpose a body of four hundred troops had been already assembled la Cludil Victoria, whore tho quotas of volunteers from the States of Nnevo T?on sod Tiimau Upas would so-n arrive, and the olTunsivs be immediately assc.med. lbs qnota fr?m the State of Coahulla w;ll bo for tbe expedition against San Luis. In the three frontior Statos, Nucto Leon, Coahttiia a id Tntnanilpas, there is an extraordinary enthusiasm in lav >r of the nut ion.it cause, and the bitterest hatred njpinpt the > ranch Is daily increasing to eu' li a degree th.it It will sooner or later be letliooae with unbounded lury against that pftrt or the population of Mexico which onco aPU before this unjust and onproYoked aggression on the | art of Napoleon had all the sympathies of the Mexican | 'Kf 9. Now there ts certainly more resent ment, ill -si.) sud profound hatred against the Freti h residrnt) thai there has ever been against the farmer flospottc rulers tf tbo country? the Spaniards This, at least. Is what has beon conquered by Napoleon for bis subjects. Nobody talks uow of the so; aration fr .m Presi dent Juarez. He Is loyally obeyed, his measures putictu ally ranted into effect by all the ommanding oillcers, ctvtl end military, and the financial department ts in the host order. Iho groat activity prevailing made all pre sume that by the end of April military operations would be commenced the fellow ing is a textual paragraph from the Io'. r f my corrwpou''<:it at Montereyt who Is au diicer in active service:? " It is customary to hear people talk or en auxili ary force of from ten to flfteon thousand An.eneans, who will soon come to join us agstn?t those f'ron< h rascals; but m all th?re Is mere gossip than reality. It ts true that in New Orleans there aro many who w >uld be tilt* willing tj do it by way of specslaUou, but it Is alo a fact that Prefti 'ent . uarc/ has tn ule known hi-? resolution to defend (Mm etr to tha last Inch of ground eoleiy witii Mexicans, t'u the other baud, iu tbo constitutional arms tli. is predominiU' s ti e notion not to admit m its rauks, cveu under the Mo> lean (log, au international array , (or ovtry OM knews too we.l how dearly Mexico has to pay for foreign a d. The resolution of the President and the geotrsl leeiln* among our troop* give the lie to certain speculator-i who believe that Mexico la predestined to rail as s booty into their bauds." The ?'ofl rial org-m of tho constitutional government of I'm r^pubiai of Mexica" is published in Monterey, nndar Hie (Urcction of Duu Ciulu''rmo Prieto and D. Pe lro Santu sllia.

On the :i(db of March lard four French gunboats bom barded tlio port of Ma/stlsn, snd one of them was sunk by tho artillery from the land fortifications. In the vicinity of Yguslft, Chacon (imperial lit) was routed by PUiron (guerilla chief).
