" -i I MATTERS ABOUT PETERSBURG MONDAY NIGHT 9 O'CLOCK. -. . i To-day, about one of the longest in the year, passed over Petersburg unbroken by scarcely an incident worthy of nrte. Instead of being a stormylday, it was one ot almost unbroken repose. A few shells were fired into the town, and fell without dojing any damage in different localities, without much regard to the points of the compiS3. Rumors, even, were less plenty than' usual, and met with much less credit than usual, for everybody seemed impressed fully with the belief that the defence of this vital point was in the-hands of those who by the blessing .of God will hold it against the vandal host now threat-ing to take it-by the throat. As to the movements of our troops, and preparations made to beat back the. foe, information must be looked for from some other quarter than this office. If, at this time, we really di 1 " know a thing or two," we should take especial care not t4 tell " a thing or two." Time will show. With the little firing going on of either artillery or 3mall arms, there must have been but asmall number of casualties to-day. LATER 11 P. M. ; A walk to Bollingbrook Hill the eastern point of Petersburg proper from which we have just returned, only revealed to us a valley, and the hills surrounding it, enveloped in a"sulph rQas canopy," "Bat shall ioe " see another sight, When the drums, beat at dead of night, t Commanding fires or death to light " The darkness of the scenery ?" We rather think not, inasmuch, as "Ihe iron tongue of Itmehas tolled the hour of twelve on the sonorous bell metal' Strangling musket firing was heard in a-southeasterly direction, showing that sharp-shooting or picket was going joiifeebly and faintly. Artillery was as silent as the- grave. Up to this time, we can hear from no source of any casualties, tnough doubtless the sharp shooting and picket firing didsonie work in the way of deaths and wounds and captures. Before' closing to-night we will venture on one speculation; j;o wjt : !The enemy will not attempt to get to the 5-5outh of Petersburg. We have our military reasons for thinking that he knows better than to try that movement just at this time. Petersoiirg Register. " . . - in. ; . Meridian, June 22.
