Going north, a road takes off to the left nearly parallel with it, some three or four miles distant, returning to the Telegraph road on the divide, called Pea ridge, or Peavine ridge. These roads Curtis had blockaded with trees felled across theming their campfires burning, resumed the march in the night, moving on the parallel road which would lead them into the Telegraph road, by a long and toilsome circuit, it is true, but well in the enemy's rear, and in an equal position on Pea ridge n a. m., the 7th, we had cleared the road of every impediment, and by 8 o'clock we reached and secured possession of the Telegraph road at a point about half a mile to the north [and rear] of the enemy's position.

g. You need not move to-morrow, except to better your position on Five-mile creek. To McPherson, he wrote: General McClernand is now on Five-mile creek, on the Telegraph road to Edward's station. He is directed to move no farther to-morrow, but to reconnoitre the road to Fourteen-mile creek. Sherman will not get much past this d not make any further detail until you want his relieved by some other troops. And at fifteen minutes past eight P. M.: McClernand is ordered to move up by the Telegraph road, also a road to the left of that, to Fourteen-mile creek, starting at daylight. McPherson is ordered to move on to Raymond. I will go forward to-morrow, pan, who had gained the crossing at Fourteen-mile creek, after slight skirmishing, the enemy first destroying the bridges. McClernand was west of Sherman, on the Telegraph road, with three divisions, one being thrown around by Baldwin's ferry. At forty-five minutes past ten A.

General Ewell having determined to make a flank movement, Lieutenant-Colonel Braxton was directed to accompany him with six guns of select calibre. After proceeding two or three miles the roads were found to be impracticable for artillery, and Braxton was ordered to return to his former position. The Second Corps, on the 21st, moved to the right to Mud Tavern, there taking the Telegraph road to Hanover Junction; arrived at that place on the 22d. The enemy soon confronted us; but not making any attempt on our lines, the artillery remained quietly in position till the morning of the 27th, when the whole army moved in the direction of Richmond, and on the 28th went into position on the Totopotomoy, General Ewell's corps being near Pole Green Church. About this time General Early assumed command of the Second Corps. It gives me great pleasure to be able to call the atten
The situation. The dispatch of Gen. Lee to the President shows that the enemy is endeavoring still to carry out his plan of out flanking him and getting to some of the Richmond highways. As "Sallust" explains, in his letter published by us yesterday, the only road left him before he is thrown below the head of the Mattaponi river, where he must cross several large streams, is what is now called the Telegraph road. It is the old stage road between Richmond and Fredericksburg, and being that on which the telegraph line is built, it now takes the present name. This renewed effort to get to the right of General Lee plainly shows that Grant is tired of his desperate whiskey assaults, and is anxious to get by him. The example of his siege of Vicksburg is possibly shaping his strategy now. He possibly concludes that if he can only get the start of Lee, and reach the fortifications of Richmond, Lee would be as powerless to relieve Richmond as was Johnston to relieve Vicksburg. B
