The Daily Dispatch: May 14, 1863., [Electronic resource], Richmond in possession of the Yankees. (search)
Richmond in possession of the Yankees. The New York World, of the 11th instant, contains the startling announcement that the Federal forces under Gen. Keyes had moved up from the Peninsula and captured the city of Richmond, and that "the national flag now floats over the Confederate Capitol." This remarkable feat was accomplished shortly after the battles on the Rappahannock, and before the rebels had recovered from the alarm occasioned by Stoneman's raid. Gen. Lee with his whole force, it was believed, would not be able to dislodge Keyes from the entrenchments which had fallen into the latter's hands without a struggle. What a glorious effect this astounding announcement will have on the Yankee nerve when taken in connection with the defeat of Hooker and his retreat to the north bank of the Rappahannock!

arranged that the prisoners should march down by land, taking the most available route. The distance thus was about 34 miles, and it was contemplated that the journey could be made by noon today. Sufficient rations were taken along in wagons to minister to the wants of the returning Yankees. The cavalcade was put in motion between 12 and 1 o'clock yesterday, the officers — about 250 in number — and over a thousand privates starting from the Libby prison and the balance joining them from Belle Isle after they crossed Mayo's bridge. It is understood that the Yankee Government had provided at City Point sufficient transportation for all the prisoners. They left Richmond in charge of Lieut. LaTouche. There are some 1,700 wounded Yankees still in field hospitals near the scene of the late engagement. These will be brought to Richmond and sent North as they shall recover. They are now attended by Yankee doctors and nurses, in pursuance of an agreement made by Hooker with Gen. Lee
Yankee fabrications. The Yankees assert that Longstreet's corps was up from Suffolk in time to take part in the late battles. This is false, though we do not wonder that they thought the tremendous blow they received was dealt by Lee's whole army. Longstreet's corps did not come and was not needed. There was enough to whip the Yankees, and they may conclude from the past that there always will be enough of the right men in the right place.
sitions for each corps were designated, and General Hooker was busy in giving instructions to his various Generals concerning his proposed pursuit and capture of Gen. Lee's army. Yesterday Gen'l Pleasanton's cavalry crossed the river and proceeded immediately to the front for the purpose of reconnoitering the enemy's positiony is safe in its old camp at Falmouth. That it was permitted to recross the river without a determined effort of the enemy to cut it to pieces satisfies us that Gen. Lee was not disposed to risk the experiment; for he has shown from the beginning a remarkable knowledge of every movement of our forces. It is said that Gen. Hookerd any signs of an advance until General Stoneman had cut the rebel railway communications with Richmond and returned to the army, the reinforcements and supplies to Lee from below might have been cut off until too late to be of any service to him. Or had General Hooker retained the powerful body of Stoneman's cavalry to guard his f
