The Daily Dispatch: July 9, 1863., [Electronic resource], Gen. Lee's army — later from the North. (search)
Gen. Lee's army — later from the North. The only intelligence we have heard of reaching the city was from an officer of the Signal Corps stationed on the lower James, who had been fortunate enough to have an opportunity of reading Northern papers of the 6th. This officer telegraphs to the War. Department that there journals state that not one word had been heard from Gen. Meade's army since the 4th, and that they contain nothing whatever with reference to the great battles which have takenothing whatever with reference to the great battles which have taken place at Gettysburg. The same officer alluded to telegraphs that the papers of the 6th speak despondingly of the situation of Gen. Banks in Louisiana.--From Vicksburg they had no later intelligence than that contained in their issues of the 4th. Among the rumors which got loose yesterday day was one to the effect that Vice President Stephens had been informed at Fortress Monroe that Lee's army was in full retreat.
per to go aboard. The officers were very much depressed, and spoke very little to the Confederates in charge of the prisoners. The only fact they stated was that Sickles had died from his wound, and that up to Saturday night Meade, the Commander in Chief of the Army of the Potomac, had not been wounded.--Sickles's right leg was amputated below the knee, but the operation was so unskillfully performed that a second amputation became necessary. During the latter operation he died. The Herald, of Saturday last, promised an extra Sunday morning, in which it expected to announce the capture of Port Hudson by Banks; the fall of Vicksburg; the Bagging of Bragg's army by Rosecrans, and the utter rout of Lee's ragged rebels by the invincible veterans of Meade. It is very likely that the extra was not issued. One of our exchanged Confederate prisoners says he heard a Federal tell a friend at Fortress Monroe that Meade had lost 40,000 men in the battles of Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.
South, nor will the Southern States ever be in a position requiring them to give an answer. I am, sir, your ob't serv't, J. M. Mason. Moncure D. Conway, Esq. A Real Yankee Dodge. The following official order to troops out to fight Lee; speaks for itself: War Departm't, Adj't Genl's Office., Washington, June 29, 1863. General Order No. 195: The Adjutant General will provide an appropriate medal of honor for the troops who, after the expiration of their terms, have of the North if they are afforded an opportunity of linking their destiny with that of the South? The Record thus concludes the article: Is any one mad enough to imagine that such a force is equal to the overthrow of the armies commanded by Lee and Johnston and Bragg and Beauregard, and the other great Generals of the South! Is any man so insane as to believe that McClellan, even had be the genius of Napoleon himself, would be equal to such a task? What a delusion then, to flatter ours

The following unofficial dispatch from the telegraphic Superintendent at Martinsburg, was received at the War Department last night: Martinsburg, July 8, 1863 To Hon. J. A.

Gen. Lee Falling back. See the telegram. Hagerstown is eighteen miles from Gettysburg. The probability is that Gen. Lee, finding the enemy too strongly posted at Gettysburg, fell back to Hagerstown in order to concentrate all his troops, and draw the enemy after him. From the telegraphic report, he seems to have been uniformly victorious. There is, therefore, no cause for uneasiness, although the public feeling must undergo a painful revulsion from the state of exultation produced by the telegram of yesterday morning. We have, it seems, 4,000 prisoners, instead of 40,000. We distrusted that telegram from the first, and we confess ourselves somewhat doubtful with regard to this.
