WARRINGTON, June 22-10 P. M.
To Maj. Gen. biz:
Dispatches from City Point. at 44 o'clock
this evening. report no fighting to-day.
Alovements are in progress which are not now
proper .tor publication.
The Richmond papers report an attack up
on Lynchburg by Gen. Hunter on Saturday,
and that he was repuLsed. It is believed, how
ever, that there was nothing more than a re
counoiss tnce, and that. having ascertained
the place to be strongly defended. Gen. Hun
ter withdrew, and is operatinv upon the ene
my's communications at other points.
A dispatch from Gen. Sherman's headquar
ters, dated yesterday at St-, o'clock, states that
"it had rained almost incessantly, in spite of
which our lines have been pressed forward
steadily, and an important position has been
gained by Gen. Howard."
The enemy made a desperate attempt to re
take this position last night, making seven
ilistinet assaults on Gen.. Whittaker''-s' bri
gade of Stanley's division, s.ndlosing• not less
than seven or eight hundred . men.
Two hundred killed were left on Whitta
ker's front. This assault was followed by a
neavy fire of artillery, under whiCh the posi
tion was fortified, and is now safe. -
Our cavalry is across Noonday Creek, on
oar left, and one brigade of the 23d Corps is
across Moses Creel 4 on the right;: but the rebel
left is behind a swamp, and the rains pre
vent, any advance.
The fighting has been quite severe at all
points, the enemy resisting stubbornly, and
attempting the defensive whenever be can,
.General Sigel reports from Martinsburg to
"There is no truth in the statement of The
Phila eipkia Inpirer ot the 21st in relation to
a raid ot Mosby. Winchester is not occupied
bi the enemy, nor are the telegraph wires cut
between this place and Harper's Ferry."

Charges of Great Frauds and Corruption
NEw You:, June 23.
Blr Isaac Henderson, pulisher of Thc Even
ing ost, Navy Agent at this port, was arrested
yesterday by Marshal Murray and assistant on
a warrant issued by Commissioner Betts, on
the application of Mr. Wilson, Special Coun
cil of the Nay Department. The charges are
very serious, embracing fraud, bribery, the
transmission of false vouchers, &c. We did
not learn the amount which the Government
charges Mr. Henderson with having illegally
received, but it is said to be large. This 'al
rest Will take the community by surprise, for
the accused has heretofore borne an irre
proachable character, and has been consider
ed a man of large means for several years.
The Marshal called at the Navy Agent's of
fice, in the Evening Post building, at about 3
o'clock, and found Mr. Henderson at his desk
in his private office. He set ved his warrant,
and took hisprisoner to the District Attorney.
Counsel appeared, and, waiving the right of
a preliminary examination, bail was given
by E. F. Brown of the firm of F. & K. F.
Brown, attorneys, and Joseph Stuart of the
firm of J. D. h J. Stuart It% Co., bankers, in
the sum of 510,000. The hearing on the
warrant is set down. for this morning at 11
A few minutes before the arrest was made
Mr. Bridge of the Navy Department called
upon Mr. Henderson with an order from the
President removing him from office, and
reeting Mr. Bridge to take charge. •

Is PREPARED to turnish and coat the ex

new system. This material is entirely different from all
other cements used heretofore, and is the only reliable,
imperisttable coating for outside work. Mixed with pro
per proportions of pure Linseed Oil it forms a solid, dura
