It states that : " Yesterday afternoon an attack
was ordered to be made on our left at Cold

Smith; Warren, Burnside, and Hancock being
held in readiness to advance in their respec
tive fronts. ' The attack was made with spirit
about 5 o'clock P. M., continuing until after
dark, and resulting in our carrying the enemy's
,on the right of the 6th Corps, where we
still hold them, and also the first line in front
of Smith. The latter, how - ever, were com
manded in the rear, which made those carried
untenable'. The enemy made repeated assaults,
on each of the corps not engaged in the main
assaults, but were repulsed with loss in every
instance. Several h'undred prisoners were ta
ken, but I cannot say what number, nor esti
mate either our or the enemy's casualties,—
During the night the enemy made several as

It is believed that no securities offer so great in
ducements to lenders as the various descriptions of
U.S. Bonds. In all other forms of indebtedneik., the
faith and ability of private parties or stock com
panies or separate communities only is pledged for
payment, while for the debts' (4 . the United. States

the payment of both principle and interest in coin.'

Will have the benefit of the interest. .
It may be useful to state in this connection that
the total Funded Debt of the:United-States on Which
interest'is payable in gold, on the 3d day sf :March.
1864, was $7.68,97500. The interest on this debt for
the coining fiscal year will be $45,937,136. while the
customs revenue in gold for the current fiscal year
ending June - 30t11,1864, has been so far at the rate
of - over $100,000,000 petannum.
It will ho seen that oven the present gold rev
ent&s•of the Government are largelyin excess of
the wants of the Treasnry fox: the Payment of gold

doubtless raise the annual receipts from customs on
