From Fortress Monroe.

Quiet with Gen. Butler.

FORTRESS MONROE, June 9 [1864].—A steamer from Bermuda Hundred reports, all quiet with Butler’s forces, with the exception of a little firing in the direction of Petersburg this morning.

There is no intelligence from Grant’s army.  No firing has been heard in that direction for two days.1
