FROM THE SOUTH SIDE OF RICHMOND

FORTRESS MONROE, JUNE 10.—Yesterday morning a portion of Gen. Butler’s forces, under Gen. Gilmore, made a demonstration on Petersburg, and succeeded in carrying the enemy’s outer line of earthworks, with the loss of only a few men wounded.  Whilst this force was demonstrating on Petersburg, Gen. Butler sent out another force, that succeeded in destroying three or four miles of the Petersburg and Richmond railroad track, without loss.

FORTRESS MONROE, JUNE 11.—About one hundred and fifty officers and men of the Second New Hampshire regiment arrived here yesterday from the White House, en route for home, their term of enlistment having expired.  This is one of the first three year regiments.  Only three of the original officers remain, viz: Col. Bailey, Lieut. Col. Carr, and Capt. Patterson.

The propeller Moonlight arrived to-day from Newbern, N.C.  No news.

The steamer John A. Warner arrived from Bermuda Hundred with forty six rebel prisoners captured Thursday last inside the rebel works around Petersburg.1
