J Major General Dix, New York: The lollowingdispatcbes from Major General M eridan, detailing his successful operations sine Hie last report, have just been received: ?'Harbisobbcrg, 7 30 t. M., Sept 3*9, 1~61.? Lieut General V. S. Grant, City Point : In my last dispatch I informed you that I pressed Early so closely through New Market, at the same time sending cavalry around his flank, that h* gave up the Valley and took to the mountains, passing through Brown's Gap. ?? kept up the pursuit to Port Republic destroying 75 wagons and 4 caissons. I seat Gen Torbert(who overtook me at Harrisonburg) to Staunton with Wilson's division ocavalry and one brigade of Merritt's Torbert entered Staunton on the 26tb, and destroyed a large quantity of rebel Government property, harness, saddles, small arms, bard bread, Boor, repair shops, etc., etc. He then proceeded to Waynesboro, destroying the iron bridge orer the Sootb Branch of the Shenandoah, seren miles of track, the depot buildings. Government tannery, and a large amount of leather, fiour and stores, etc., etc., at that place. He found the tunnel defended by inlantry, and retired via Staunton. "My impression is that most of the troops Which Early had left passed through the mountains to Cbarlottsrille. ?? Kershaw's division came to bis assistance, and I think passed along the west base of the mountain to Waynes-boro'. '? I am getting from twenty-five to forty prisoners daily, who come in from the mountains on each side and deliver themselves up. ?? biom the most reliable accounts, Early's army was completely broken up, and is t?isp.rited. "Kerthawbad not reached Richimnd, but was somewhere in the vicinity of Gordons? rille, where be received orders to rejoin Early. ??The destruction of the grain and forage from here to Stannton will be a terrible blow to tbem. All the grain forage, etc., in the vicinity of St ? union was retained for the use of Early's army All in the lower part of the ralley was shipped to Richmond for the use of Lee's army. The country from here to Staunton was abundactly supplied with forage and grain etc, etc. P. H. Shbbidan, M. G." ? HaiiBieOBECBO, Va, 7 p. m, Sept. 26,t?o!. ?Lt. Gen'l Grant ?I see it going the rounds or tbe papers that the 19;h Corps was late in coming into tne battle at Winchester. I was entirely unconscious of this until I saw it in the papers. Tbe statement was made by K. L. Sbelby. I wish to say that it is incorrect, and that this correspondent was arrested by my order, on a previous occasion, for writing untruthful accounts. P. H. Shbbidan, Major General " No report of operations in front of Richmond or Petersburg later than my telegram of last night has reached the Department. Eowin M. Sta ?t??, Secretary of War.

The United States mail steamer Thomas A? Morgan arrited here this morning lrom City Point, which place she left yesterday at 11 a. m. She brings some further particulars of the late fighting near Richmond. Early yesterday morning, Gregg's cavalry moved out in front of Warren, and captured the ou'? irks of the rebels on their extreme right He afterwards got heavily engaged with the enemy at a point near the Gnrley House? and Is reported to have captured between two and three hundred prisoners, and Warren immediately made preparations to follow up the advantages thus gained ; but when the Morgan left City Point nothing was definitely known of his lurther ooerations. General Meade made a successful movement yesterday morning in tbe direction of Poplar Church where he captured some of the rebel entrenchments, and other portions of our lines were also advanced, bnt with what success, is not known to tbe passengers that came up on the Morgan. There was a report at City Point yesterday morning that General Kantz, with a large body of cavalry, had cut his way through the rebel entrenchments and reached a point near the Rockets, which is buta short distance below Richmond, where he took up a strong position and sent back for reinforcements. Though no confirmation of this report has been received thus far, it serves to show the hopelul and confident feeling prevailing at the Fi >nt. en. Bnrnham, commanding a division in the j?** - corps was killed in the engagement on Chap?n s Farm and his body is now at Bermuda Hunred, where it is being embalmed, preparatory to being sent north. 'In theattack on the rebel entrenchments on Chapin's Fa-m, Butler's colored troops are said to have fought with desperation, and they Buffered severely in killed and wounded. Gen Ord, who received a flesh wound in the leg iu this engagement, came down to Fortress Monroe yesterday, on the Morgan, on his way to Baltimore. Gen. Ord expresses great confidence in the ultimate success ol our present mo-ement. Ev rything at the front looks bright and encon -aging-, and our officers and men are confldt'Lt iu the belief that Richmond will fall this time._^^^ A BEI'REfc "NTATIVE RECRUIT FOR PRESI? DKNTllNCOLN. Yesterday, Provost Marshal General Fry sent for Mr. Noble D. Lamer, of the Third Ward, and announced to him that President Lincoln desired to have a representative re cruit put in for him (the President) and credited to the Third Ward. Mr. Lamer at once set o work to procure as fine and healthy a looking recruit as he could, and to day secured a young man, twenty years of age? named John Summerfield Staples, from Strandsburg, Monroe county, Pennsylvania, and wbo had served nine months in the lfcth Pennsylvania militia regiment. Staples is not so tall as the President, bot is well formed, stout and healthy, and there is every indication tbat he will prove an excellent soldier. The recruit was accompanied by his father, Mr. J. L. Staples, who gave his consent to his son's enlistment. Tbe bounty was paid tbe recruit, and the money was handed over to Mr. Lamer, by General Fry. who was authorized by the Preeident to draw upon him for the amount. Staples was at once sent to the barracks, and will be uniformed, and thence will be sent to Col. Alexder'e 2d District regiment. RETlRNEDEP.OM THE 80CTHERN PRISONS. Yesterday morning, Dr William J. Cragen, surgeon o? the 2d 1). C. regiment, who was c-ptured on the 21th of May near Fairfax station, aboat the time the regiment Was moving back on a train of cars, arrived home after a pretty extensive tour through several of the Confederate States. Dr. Cragen was captured by Dr. Powell, of Prince William county, Va , and Geo. Slickman, of Fairfax county, and taken to Orange Court Home, and from thence on the cars to Gordonsville, where he was delivered over to the provost marshal, Maj. Boyle, who proved to be no lesa a personage than Dr. CorneUus Eoyle, formerly of this city. Boyle seems to have lost none of his llesb, and was in perfect health, and when Dr. Cragen was ushered into bis presence he recognized him and took him to task for joining "the infernal Yankees." From Gordonsville he waa sent to Lynchbnrg, where be found Robert Shinn, of Alexandria, a lieutenant and provost marshal, and be was kept here two weeks. Here the prisoner- received cooked rations consisting of one small corn dodger and a quarter of a pound of bacon per day. They were taken from this place to Danville, Va., and from thence on the ?th of J une, twelve officers and 500 prisoners were dispatched to Macon, G-a., where they arrived on the 19th. Here they were placed in the stockade at the -?'air Grounds, in which were two buildings oniy, but the prisoners built sheds ror shelter. This stockade covered about three acres of ground, and in it 1,600 prisoners were confined, and when considering all circumstances, the health of the prisoners was generally good. The rations were here served out every four days, and consisted of five pints of meal, fifteen ounces of bacon cured in ashes, six tablespoons of worm-eaten beans, four do. rice, two teaspoons of salt, one gill of molasses, a half gill of vinegar, and one tablespoon of soft Bide. They remained here until the latter part of .1 niy. when S'oiieman was making his raid. On the '2-tb, about 6?? prisoners were sent to Charleston, and the Doctor left with 600 others on the following day for Savannah, where th??y were placed in the yard of the Marine l?os pi. al in tints, and remained until tbe 3d of September, receiving a pound of fresh beef per day, with plenty of meal and rica and a little vinegar. At that time the medical officers were removed to Charleston. The prisoners on the train from Macon to Charleston were to have made an attempt ta capture and burn the tram at Po_ot_Jigo, on the 2.th, and had agreed that at a givtn signal they would seize the guards, set fire to the train, and make tor the Federal line.; but the plan was discovered, and an increased number of guards placed on tbe train. Some seventyfive, however, did jump from the train, but they were mostly recaptured. At Charleston they found a If rg? number of prisoners, who are quartered at the Roper Hoe. pita), Marine Hospital, jail, and workhouse. Th??y are said to be nnder fire, hut in reality tbey are In very little danger, and tbe Doctor dia not hear of any on e of our men beinginjured except Lieut Foote. of General Wessel'a stall, whose hrm was grazed a few weeks since by a piece of shell, while be was sitting at dinner. The discipline is not very eevere, aud the prisoners bave some little room for exercise, and the general treatment ii much better than at other places. There are some Washingtonians here, among them Lieut. Caustin, (Tom Canstin,) wbo is well, and Engineer Ellis, (son of J. B. Ellis, Esq., ot this city,) wbo is suffering with scurvy, brought on by imprisonment, but is rot eerlously ill. Dr. Cragen was released on the ?23d, with other officers, and exchanged tbe same day, and- immediately set oat for home. COTTON PICKED UP RY U. S. TR881L8. Lieut. Com'r J.

CA-Ial.?President Spates has had the satisfaction of witnessing, as the result of his incessant labor of three months, the arrival last night of the fleet of boats from tue western sections cf tbe canal. The repairs being completed and the canal itself in order, did not end the work to be accomplished before navigation could be resumed. There were many obstructions, caused by the long dry spell, that had to be removed. The water was let In on the 17th irstant, the banks being exceedingly dry the absorption was so great as to keep the water below the levels several days, and to this cause may ho added the numerous leaks of minor importance at various points The boats having been laid np drying for so long a time, the seams of many opened and starting weetempty, a number snnk, and these had to be raised, and it delayed the arrival of laden beats three or fonr days. But all is naht now, and tbe fleet of thirty having arrived, sixty more are expected by Monday night. President Spates will return immediately to Cumberland and urge those boats now there to load aud follow in tbe trade.
