TELEGRAPHIC REPORTS OF THE PRESS ASSOCIATION
Petersburg, June 28—7 30, P.M.—The situation is unchanged. There has been the usual cannonading and picket firing. The lines of the two armies are at some points not over two hundred yards apart. Our troops are in excellent spirits and much refreshed by the rain and cool weather which is also quite favourable to our wounded.
It is reported that Burnside’s corps has gone to Washington.1
