ery badly instead of crushing Bragg, and Meade, instead of advancing upon Richmond, detached three corps to reinforce him, and himself fell back, closely pursued by Lee. Now, if the Yankees had been in possession of such an overwhelming force as they would have the world believe, where was the necessity of robbing Meade to supply Rosecrans, when the former was committed to an operation not less important than that of which Rosecrans himself was the director? Gen. Lee was, at the latest accounts, pressing hard upon Meade. The latter was making the best of his way to Alexandria, and there he will stop, unless Lee shall be able to intercept him and bringLee shall be able to intercept him and bring him to battle. These are the two main armies of the enemy. One of them is besieged, and the other retreating.--The enemy have derived absolutely no advantage from their successes last summer. Their press inculcates the absolute necessity of concentration, and with them concentration implies abandonment of the territory they hav
500 dollars reward. --Ran away from the residence of the writer, corner of 7th and Leigh streets, on Monday morning last, a gingerbread colored boy, named Jim, about 14 years old, very large mouth, very sprightly and lively, and fond of singing comic songs when at leisure. He is very fond of soldiers, and my impression is that he has gone off with some of the local companies around Richmond or Petersburg, in which latter place he was raised by a Mr. or Mrs. Pearman, and sold here 17th March last, at Lee & James's, by C C Burton. There are no scars recollected, except whip marks from appearance when he was very young The above reward will be paid if delivered to Hill, Dickinson & Co. Richmond.

ne to protect Washington, or have the causes for the failure of their late campaign investigated. "If Grant was deceived in regard to the magnitude of his tas, Lee was astonished that his was not more easily performed. A few days campaigning was all he was accustomed to endure on the south side of the Rapidan. All true Confetrategy and opposition, until we settled around Petersburg, and look from the 'sunny South' upon the five steeples that shoot up in stately beauty among the trees. Lee is the greater sufferer in these under-estimates. Grant loses time, and men, and money; Lee loses the Confederacy and his immortal past reputation. To be mistakenLee loses the Confederacy and his immortal past reputation. To be mistaken in your foe and then conquered is a great trial. Deceived in an enemy — defeated by an expected easy prey. This is the 'Great Chieftain's' fate, and a hard one it must be to so successful a general. "Three months are left us for field service. We can endure even unto the end. Will our enemy, already weakened and worn, live
on railroad. The Macon Intelligencer, of the 1st instant, has the following brief account of the fight on the Macon and Western railroad just previous to the capture of Atlanta: To-day the Yankees effected a lodgement on the Macon and Western railroad, between Rough and Ready and East Point stations. They attacked our forces with six corps, and by a very fierce and obstinate effort, succeeded in gaining the position which divides our army. General Hardee's corps, under Cleburne, and Lee's corps, all combined, under charge of General Hardee resisted the advance of the enemy with determined valor and unexampled bravery from early this morning until night, when the enemy still held possession of the road. General Hood, with Stewart's corps and the Georgia militia, remains in Atlanta, and communication between the two portions is kept up only by couriers, It is supposed that the enemy will make a rapid and terrible onset on the defences of Atlanta at the earliest moment the
Heavy Robbery. --On Tuesday night the residence of Mr. George Lee, on the corner of Franklin and Sixth streets, was burglariously entered by thieves and robbed of about ten thousand dollars' worth of coffee, sugar, lard, liquor and other groceries. Mr. Lee has since removed his provisions to the second story of his residence in consequence of an attempt which was made to break into the basement and from the procedure of the operators on Tuesday night, strong suspicious are entertained thMr. Lee has since removed his provisions to the second story of his residence in consequence of an attempt which was made to break into the basement and from the procedure of the operators on Tuesday night, strong suspicious are entertained that the thieves have been well acquainted with the movements on his lot. They went prepared with a ladder, buckets and ropes, and a seconded to the window landing to the store room from the outside; here it is supposed the brackets were filled by some one inside and lowered down to the ground, with the rope swung across the first round of the ladder in order to prevent them from striking against the side of the house, and thereby possibly alarming the inmates by the noise which would be made in
doing what disabled soldiers could do just as well; numbers of white men doing what negroes could do much better; and numbers of young men doing nothing at all. We want the services of all these — the country requires them — the crisis demands them — and the Bureau of Conscription has already indicated who and what they are, and where to be found. The three months that must elapse before the campaign shall have closed are important months to us. If employed as they might be, they would, in all probability, become the period from which to date the rise of a feeling on the part of our enemy that may tend to peace. The campaign thus far has been a losing business to him. We must take care that it continue to be so. Grant promises, if furnished with one hundred thousand more men, to finish all the necessary fighting in six weeks. They will be furnished, and we must enable Lee to meet him. The question as to whether we can do it, is no question at all. We can do it and we should do
y beating and endeavoring to smother a horse which he was driving. Witnesses to the transaction represent John's conduct as inhuman in the extreme, and, had it not been for the officer who took him in charge, the fellow would probably have been roughly handled by the crowd who were standing around. Late Saturday afternoon, a notorious negro fellow, belonging to Robert Lumpkin, named John, was arrested by officers Moore and Perrin, suspected of burglariously breaking into the house of George Lee, on the corner of Franklin and Sixth streets, on the night of the 7th instant, and stealing one barrel and a half of sugar, valued at three thousand dollars; two demijohns of whiskey, worth one thousand dollars; three demijohns of wine, valued at one thousand five hundred dollars; one demijohn of French brandy, valued at five hundred dollars, and various other articles of more or less value. John has been sought after for some time, but until Saturday he could not be found. Sarah, sl
