THE FRONTS.

The only new item to-day is the capture of one of the outer entrenchments of Petersburg, after being for a long time held by two regiments against an overwhelming force of the enemy, estimated at ten thousand. This begins to shadow forth Grant’s programme, and illustrates the necessity of a sharp eye to the southern defences of Richmond.

Above Marietta, the enemy’s movements appear to look to a collision very shortly.1
