NP: June 11, 1864 New York Herald-Tribune: From Fortress Monroe



in June 1864

From Fortress Monroe

FORTRESS MONROE, Thursday, June 9, 1864.

We have no regular communication between this place and the White House, but the mail steamers run regularly between the latter place and Washington.  Consequently, news from the Army of the Potomac by way of this point is scant.

4 p.m.—The steamer John A. Warner, Capt. Cone, has arrived from Bermuda Hundred, and reports that all was quiet with Gen. Butler’s forces, with the excep-tion of a little firing in the direction of Petersburg this morning.

We have no intelligence from Gen. Grant’s army.  No firing has been heard in that direction for three days.1
