d vim that, if combined in a physical demonstration against the enemy, would sweep him from the face of the earth. Whatever else the raids of Sheridan & Co. destroy, they cannot extinguish the inevitable sparring for legislative honors. Lee and Grant, Johnston and Sherman, must be content to stand aside from public attention for the present, till the great battle of the Legislative Ins and Outs is decided. We suggest to the enemy that the coolness and system with which our people are nowst to the enemy that the coolness and system with which our people are now going about this work do not look much like the deportment of men who are in daily expectation of being subjugated. We have none of us the most remote idea of permitting them to deprive us of our favorite pastime of voting. We intend to go ahead, in Old Virginia, voting for our own rulers, or servants, as they modestly style themselves, for the next hundred years, Grant, Sherman & Co. to the contrary notwithstanding.
from Atlanta to Savannah. The Star regards the fall of Charleston as premonitory of the utter over throw of the rebellion. The Army and Nary Gazette says the evacuation of Charleston and Columbia, and the concentration of garrisons, will strengthen the hands of Beauregard. Hardee and Hill; but the Confederates are placed in a position of exceeding danger, from which it will require greater genius than ever Lee and Davis have as yet exhibited to extricate them. The purpose of Grant becomes more obvious as the campaign proceeds. He holds Lee fast, and thus paralyzes the strongest arm and neutralizes the greatest force of the Confederacy. The news was published too late on the 3d for the Liverpool and Manchester markets. But the first effect was one of depression, and cotton declined. The rebel ram Stonewall continues at Ferrol, watched by Union vessels. The truth of the report that she was leaking is not confirmed, as she continues to take on board a large
at we learn of the condition of his command, men and beasts, some considerable time must elapse before it will again be fit for field operations. On Monday evening, between 2 and 3 o'clock, our batteries on the Jerusalem plankroad, near Petersburg, opened upon the Yankee observatory recently erected on the Avery House, about a mile distant. The Yankees replied to our fire, and the cannonade was kept up till dark. It is not known what damage the observatory suffered from our fire. Grant still holds a heavy force on Hatcher's run. From North Carolina. There were reports current, yesterday, that General Johnston had again whipped the enemy near Bentonsville; no official intelligence to that effect was, however, received during the day. The battle of Sunday seems to have been one of those sudden and brilliant coups for which General Johnston is famous. It was expected that Sherman, having massed his whole force, would attack Johnston on Monday morning, but we hav
York alone last Monday. But suppose, on the other hand, that Richmond were to attempt a holiday parade of its citizens!" All very true. And yet, for four years, neither New York nor the whole United States have been able to take Richmond. We confess that New York can beat us in " holiday parades, " and that if the war were to be decided by the biggest number of people on the streets in a peaceful procession, we should have been whipped to death long ago. Our "parades" are not of the "holiday" kind. They take place in the field, under General Lee, and in front of General Grant. Why do not that "immense reserve force of stalwart men" answer the call of Abraham Lincoln, instead of buying substitutes, who desert as soon as they are enlisted, and ransacking the South for negroes to fight their battles? As soon as Lincoln tries to force them to the front, the war will be ended. "Holiday parades" are the only military exhibitions they ever intend to make for the glorious Union.
ssouri, the rivers have been swollen to an extraordinary height, and the increased volume of water and accelerated currents have carried everything before them, overflowing thousands of acres of lowlands, inundating cities, towns and railroads, and sweeping off vast amounts of property. One hundred miles of the Erie railroad, and several miles of the New York Central and other principal routes of travel were, on last Saturday, under water. Army movements. The only intelligence from Grant's army, we find, is the following paragraph: It is reported that the rebels in front of the Army of the Potomac have concentrated their lines in the vicinity of Dinwiddie Courthouse, and taken additional precautions to strengthen their hold on the Southside railroad. Their movements are closely watched, and the national troops are held in readiness for a movement at any hour that circumstances may demand it. There has been no rain for some days to interfere with the condition of the ro
The news The Richmond and Petersburg lines. Unbroken quiet prevails on these lines. The report comes to us from Petersburg that Grant is transferring some of his troops to aid Sherman in North Carolina. We cannot vouch for the truth of the report. A large body of woods on the lines below Richmond were on fire yesterday. From North Carolina. There was a rumor on the streets yesterday that General Johnston had attacked Sherman in his entrenchments at Bentonsville and dis entrenchments at Bentonsville and driven him out of them. We have received no official intelligence confirmatory of the rumor, and for this and other reasons, doubt that there is foundation for it. General Singleton. After a protracted visit, this gentleman left Richmond yesterday by flag of truce for Grant's lines. We learn that the objects, whether looking to peace or commerce, that brought him to Richmond, have not been realized. He goes back a sadder. if not a wiser, man.
st during this campaign. In the first place, the Yankees are themselves as tired of the war as we are. But for the unfortunate withdrawal of Johnston last summer, and the consequent defeat of Hood, which led to the invasion of Tennessee and the dispersion of his army, and the invasion of Georgia by Sherman; but for that one error, the cry for peace at the North would have been stronger than it ever has been here. Indeed, it had already commenced, under the influence of Lee's victories over Grant, and the unparalleled slaughter by which they were attended, when that unfortunate affair occurred, and changed at once the whole current of the Yankee mind.--Intent upon peace on any terms a moment ago, it changed with success, and now nothing less than subjugation would do. That was because subjugation was now believed to be easy. The war is thought there to be almost at an end. They are told so by their newspapers every day, who, at the same time, fail not to represent our affairs in a c
dable to confront Lee's whole army in the open field, without the assistance of Grant, and no force that the rebels may raise can impede Sherman's triumphant march nSherman's army. Quartermaster-General Meigs was a passenger on board. General Grant's plans. A letter in the New York News says: If it is true, as has been stated, that General Grant has kept himself fully informed of Lee's movement, and fully understands the strategy the enemy is employing, he will most likely mn the former movement, If General Sherman can take care of himself without General Grant's assistance, the latter can doubtless succeed in the movement, and thus thfore the movement can be discovered. It is reasonable to suppose that General Grant would require the aid of a strong cavalry force to assist him in the executIt is said, on the authority of a distinguished Senator in Washington, that General Grant predicts the evacuation of Richmond within ten days. The Nashville Dis
The News. The fight at Petersburg on Saturday--successful attack on Grant's lines South of the Appomattox--General Lee's official Dispatch. A spirited and successful assault was made upon Grant's lines east of Petersburg at daylight Saturday morning, a full account of which is given in the following official report of General Lee.--There was in the evening some skirmishing on our right, with no important result. Over five hundred prisoners, captured during the morning, have arrived inGrant's lines east of Petersburg at daylight Saturday morning, a full account of which is given in the following official report of General Lee.--There was in the evening some skirmishing on our right, with no important result. Over five hundred prisoners, captured during the morning, have arrived in this city. We give General Lee's report: "Headquarters army Confederate States,"March 25, 1865--11:20 P. M. "Hon. J. C. Breckinridge, Secretary of War: "At daylight this morning, General Gordon assaulted and carried the enemy's works at Hare's Hill, capturing nine pieces of artillery, eight mortars, and between five and six hundred prisoners, amongst them one brigadier-general and a number of officers of lower grade. "The lines were swept for a distance of four or five hundred
The last sensation card at the North is that both Jeff. Davis and General Lee propose to give up the ship. What must be the gullibility of a people which can swallow such a dose as that without winking! The next story will be that Jeff, is on his way to Mexico, with Lee making tracks in the same direction, for the purpose of offering his military services to Maximilian. It is a long time since we have seen Jeff. Davis, and possibly he has really given General Grant the slip, and is, by this time, on his way to the Halls of the Montezuma. All that either he or Lee have to do is to step on one of the Southern trains, and evaporate. One Yankee writer, however, is of opinion that Jeff. may prefer to run against William H. Seward as the Copperhead candidate for the next Presidency. Another thinks that Lee would like to get back his old position in the United States army. What disposition is proposed to be made of itself by the Confederate army is not stated. Probabl
