TELEGRAPHIC REPORTS OF THE PRESS ASSOCIATION.

_____________

FROM PETERSBURG.

PETERSBURG, July 5.—There was brisk skirmishing along the lines on the centre and right last night and to-day, with heavy shelling from seige guns at intervals.

General Alexander Longstreet [sic?, Edward Porter Alexander?], chief of artillery, slightly wounded a few days since, is doing quite well.

General Bushrod Johnson was slightly wounded yesterday, but did not leave the field.1
