From Gen. Lee’s Army.

Richmond, June 11.

Accounts from the front represent Grant busy digging parallels. Some skirmishing yesterday and to-day, but it has amounted to nothing. The lines in some places are not more than 200 yards apart.

[SECOND DISPATCH.]

Stain’s Farm, June 12.

No change in relation to the situation of the two armies, save occasional discharge of artillery and active sharpshooting on the part of the enemy.–Nothing doing. Scouts report Grant to be tearing up the the York River Railroad. Grant is very heavily fortified on our front, and his line is in some places in fifty yards of ours.1
