aw, the campaign against Richmond, so far as any serious and extensive operations are concerned, may be fairly considered as ended; but even then it is likely that Grant will, with every temporary return of firm ground, attempt some minor enterprise. The Yankees have, of late, had nothing to say about the Dutch Gap canal. At lisville Journal has told us that Sherman, after devastating Georgia, will exchange signals with Commodore Porter on the Atlantic coast. Before taking leave of Grant's army, we will state that soldiers, just from Colonel Mosby's command, assure us that the Eighth Yankee corps is still in the Valley, and that no organized force has left Sheridan's army to reinforce Grant. From the Valley. Notwithstanding the diminution of force in the Valley, the Yankees still stir themselves occasionally, by way of variety, as will be seen from the following official dispatch: "Headquarters, etc., November 22. "Hon. James A. Seddon: "General Early r
s strong that there are no rebels in force north of the Arkansas river. What is to be Done in Virginia. A telegram from Washington says that general fighting along all the army lines will be the result of Sherman's movement. It says: It appears to be pretty well settled that Early's army has been drawn back to Richmond, and it is supposed that Lee will detach as large a force as prudence will permit, and send it to oppose Sherman, and at least cover Savannah. In this event, Grant will have just the opportunity he covets. The War in the Southwest. A dispatch from Cairo, the 19th, says Beauregard is at Corinth and Forrest about to join him there.

He found the enemy in full force, about five miles in his front, in the neighborhood of Kernstown and Bartonsville. He remained in position this side of Newtown until the night of the 13th, when he withdrew. General Early had learned that some of Sheridan's troops had been dispatched to Grant, but found him with his three corps all in hand and occupying a fortified line. "Our cavalry had quite a sharp engagement on the 12th, Rosser, with his old brigade and Wickham's, was on our left — Payne, with his brigade, on the pike — and Lomax, with his command, on the right. Rosser's old brigade was whipped; but the fortunes of the day on the left were more than restored by Wickham's brigade and by Payne's, which moved up to Rosser's assistance. Our loss was small.

When they were finally compelled to abandon these latter, they all retired into Charleston, and Green held the whole country, while they attempted no farther enterprise. If Sherman go to either Charleston or Savannah, and there be shut up by our armies, it will probably be the best thing that can happen to either of these States, since it will be the means of leaving them free and uninterrupted by the presence of the enemy in the agricultural country. Our own impression, however, is that this expedition has been undertaken with a view to render assistance to Grant. Savannah or Charleston once taken, it would be very easy to transfer Sherman's whole force to the lines before Richmond and Petersburg. Richmond is now the prevailing Yankee idea; and all other enterprises dwindle into insignificance in comparison with that directed immediately against Richmond.
