A Demonstration on Petersburg.

FORTRESS MONROE, June 9 [1864].—The steamer John A. Warner, Captain [probably Jonathan] Cone1, from Bermuda Hundred, has arrived.  All was quiet at that place, but there has been a movement in the direction of Petersburg, and some firing was heard from that direction.  Result not known.2

Sources/Notes:

  1. SOPO Editor’s Note: I found an image of what I believe is the mentioned John A. Warner as it looked post war in a book called Bristol published by Arcadia Publishing. A Captain Jonathan Cone built the John A. Warner, and was almost certainly the same Captain Warner mentioned in this article.
