The tenth on to Richmond. Meade is about to undertake the tenth on to Richmond. One would suppose that an ambitions commander would be deterred from assuming the command of an "On to Richmond" by the fates of those who have preceded him A little reflection, however, will satisfy him that such is not naturally the case. Men rather eagerly rush into enterprises where the odds are immensely against them, because the glory or the gain of success will be in proportion to the peril. In the present instance, too, the man who enters upon the perils of the "On to Richmond" is consoled by the assurance that, should he fail, the Hades to which he must go is peopled by a host of his predecessors, whose company will make the gloom of disappointment and disgrace some what tolerable.

Meade, that "he had captured a brigade of infantry, two pieces of artillery, two caissons, and a large number of small arms, as" Gen. Lee's"army crossed to the south bank of the Potomac on the 13th and 14th" July, Gen. L. stated in his letter that the enemy captured "no organized body of men" on that occasion, but only stragglers, who were left asleep or exhausted by the way in a very inclement night.
