Just then Ewell received in check, in desultory engagement, and forced Meade to hesitate in pressing an advance beyond Lee'd withdraw two farther to the east.

Warren has gained nothing. His attacks were made in the forenoon, with so much delay, that Grant and Meade were greatly dissatisfied; but when they were made they were unsuccessful, though attended with considerable loss. The rred from the long day's work, and the chances of success were so much short of certainty, that General Wright advised General Meade to postpone the attempt, and accordingly the obstinate battle was allowed to pause here. The results of the day are,ed that, in changing his lines, Lee had uncovered the roads leading southward along his right, and that Grant had ordered Meade to withdraw Warren from the right and Wright from the center, around to the left, turn Lee's flank, and force him to move

General Hancock was the only one who receive to attack Cold Harbor, and Warren had failed to execute his orders, and both Generals Grant and Meade are so intensely disgusted with these failures of Wright and Warren, that a change has been maderavery on the part of the soldiery had rarely been surpassed, are given in the reports of Major-General Meade, and the subordinate reports accompanying it. In his dispatch of June 5th, Dana statermy, and that, at that date, it contained 115,000 fighting men. He concludes: Generals Grant and Meade agree that Lee's whole command, here and south of Richmond, is now 80,000, exclusive of any mereng and memorable siege of Petersburg began.
