From Mittiuippi.—KiCHMONU, July 16.— The following was received to day: ‘‘We attacked a column of the enemv under Smith yesterday, on the march from Pontotoc, Miss., to Tupelo, causing him to burn many wagons. We attacked him in oositi )u at Tupelo tViis morning, but could not force his position. The battle was a drawn one, and lasted three hours.” From Petersburg.—During the small hours of Monday night, there was brif-k picket firing; and yesterday, there was frequent firing from cannon and mortars. As to a general aseault on our line?, there was no sign of it, and it is a mat ter ct much doubt whether Grant oontemplates another assault. Even his hard head has been somewhat softened by repeated butting, and his bull-dog tenacity of purpose has been much re laxed We were aga*n subjected to a bombardment three times during yesterday, but tbe i«iissilcs accomplished less than on any day which has ftreceded We heard of no accident to life and imb. and if a building was struck, except by a harmleiiB, wellspent fragment, we have yet to learn it. The few people who are left in our city, are made to seek shelter, but beyond this, they are subjected to no inconvenience. A fight occurred yesterday near Lee’s Mill, Prince George, in the vicinity of the Plank road. The enemy advanced with infantry and cavalry, but were promptly met by Gen.

Th© enemy retired, and being reinforced, advanced again at 3 o’cltjck but were again repulsed by Gen. Fit* Lee. We captured an aujutact, who was too severely wounded to be carried off Our loss was but one man wounded. The enemy is trying to work around again towards Reams’ Station.

From the ValUy of Virginia.—A well-known cititon of Fre-i’rick Co , writing from Winches ter, 8th inst., says: The daring and “bloody re bels,” came in force on Saturday, the 2d inst, wbf-n we, tho oporessed and desolate, were per mitted io breathe again—not to live as we did of old. tor really the yankee nation have eaten up and otherwise destroyed our substance. Tbe advanct> pressed on t»ward.s the Potomac, and on Monday captured Martinsburg. The ar- Bpy stores obtained there were immense, e.speci- aiiy oata, corn, bacon, flour, Ao. The prisoners weie few—some 200 at that point. The surprise was great, but not complete. Tho destination and design of the expedition has not transpired. July 8.—Our forces took possession of Freder ick City y«9terd&y. Harper's Ferry is in our possession, bridges burnt, and a large amount of stores captured A few of our boys were wound ed at Harper’s Ferry. A letter is sa-d to have been received from ar officer with our forccs in Maryland, saying they were on the railroad between Washington and Baltimore, on the night of the 9th, and had or ders to march at 4 o’clock next morning, in the direction of the latter place. Vast quantities of supplies and a large- number of horses have been captured by our forces, since they crossed the Potomac, besides damaging the railroad and canal to a great extent.—Rich Sen., 13f/t The Victory of the 23/ o/^une^^hc War Department has received official details of this brilliant affair in which Brig. Gen. Mahone, com manding Anderson's division, with a portion of his eommasd, inflicted such a severe blow upoQ Hancock’s corps, on the extreme left of the yan kee army around Petersburg. With only about 3,000 efeotive men and a battery of four Napo leons, under Captain McIntosh, he flanked tho enemy’s lines and drQve them in disorder and consternation more than a mile back upon their reserves and on a strongly fortified position on the plank road. With his limited force he was unable to press the advantage, or the result would have been much more extensive and decisive. As far as it went the sucocss was complete, leaving in our hands tangible fruits of victory, the evidence of whioh could not be gainsayed or controverted even by the hsbitual falsifications of the Federal press. Our casualties were compara tively slight, summing up 53 killed, 282 wounded and 48 mi.ssing. The trophies consisted of 1,660 prisoners, including 57 commissioned officers, 10 stand of colors, 4 pieces of artillery, and 1,571 stand of small arms. The enemy made repeated attempts to regain the works and the artillery he had lost, all of which were promptly and deci sively repulsed. The extent of his loss in killed and wounded is not known; but must have been very considerable.—Rich. Sentinel, 13fA. VAJ¥CE T1C'KET8, To be had at this Office.
