organizations having been entirely destroyed. At this point pursuit was abandoned, as I have stated. Their route now to Grant will be via Sussex C, H., and through Southampton up into Prince George, which is a distance of some sixty miles.--The wo He states that several citizens were taken prisoners and closely questioned, but released after a brief detention. Grant's Army. On his passage through Lunenburg Wilson went to the house of a citizen, and having imbibed whiskey pretty freely, became very communicative. He told a lady of the family that it was not Grant's purpose to do any more hard fighting, but to remain in front of Petersburg and operate upon our lines of communication through his raiding parties. Another officer, in reply to a question, stated that Grant's army, when it crossed the Rapidan, numbered something over 149,000 men. Many thousands of these now lie on the soil of Spotsylvania and Cold Harbor, and the future will tell a similar story of the reinf

t, all of which will be rectified within the coming week. I have the honor to be, very respectfully, your obedient servant, David D Porter, Rear Admiral.

What took place at this interview between the Lieutenant General and the commander of the James river flotilla, we of course do not know; but we know very well what ought to have taken place; and we can only hope that the presence and the words of the victorious commander of our armies may have stirred up Admiral Lee to a sense of his position, and inspired him to make some attempt, even though a lame one, to go on
From Petersburg. Petersburg, July 1st. --After leaving Reams's Station the enemy's raiders retreated to Stony Creek, Fitz. Lee pursuing.--Here the enemy made a feeble stand, but were quickly dislodged, and continued their retreat towards Jarratt's Station, on the Weldon road, our cavalry still pursuing them. At this point their retreat was turned into a rout, the enemy losing their organization and scattering in every direction, the most of them, however, getting through to Grant. Two more pieces of artillery, nine wagons, (including Wilson's headquarters' wagon,) and a number of prisoners and small arms were captured. Yesterday evening the enemy made a feeble assault on Colquitt and a demonstration in front of Gracle, both of which were easily repulsed. Our capture of prisoners at Reams's Station foot up 387, including the wounded.--The negroes reclaimed number 700. Nothing doing to-day.
The Fourth of July. The great national festival of the United States will be celebrated this year with uncommon spirit. On the last anniversary Grant occupied Vicksburg; this Fourth, crowning glory of all, he is to take Richmond. With the capture of Richmond, the war is to end, the principal rebels be executed, the plantations and negroes of the South pass to Northern proprietors, its mighty States dwindle into subjugated territories, and the Republic move on with a momentum and majesty which will astonish and overawe the world. The American eagle, with one wing overshadowing the Atlantic and the other the Pacific, and with the Southern Confederacy struggling helplessly in his talons, will soar aloft, giving a scream that will scare the British Lion out of his wits, and make the Gallic cock "skedaddle" like a Shanghai. Oh, puissant and irresistible Ulysses! Oh, memorable and immortal 4th of July, 1864! We consider it an unfortunate thing that the 4th of July does not o
