Affairs upon the lines in the immediate vicinity of Richmond, are assuming a lively Yesterday morning the booming of heavy guns could be distinctly heard from the city, and reminded the listener of the scenes of the summer of 1863, when McClelgan with his host made a stupendous but fruitless effort to reach the Capital. We give below such facts regarding the progress of events as we have been able to collect. From Gen. Lee's army. There was some heavy skirmishing on Monday, in which we suffered some loss, and have reason to believe that more was insisted upon the enemy. We are informed that a portion of Rodes's division, supported by was sent forward to feel the position of the enemy, and came upon them in the neighborhood of Betheeds Church, in Honorer col. A right ensued, in which the enemy were driven back some two miles or more when our troops came upon the enemy breastworks and fell back. Meanwhile, Battle's and Daniel's brigades flanked the enemy's line o
nother grows boastful, and indulges in the favorite Yankee along about a speedy "crushing of the rebellion," which has been constantly harped upon by Northern newspapers and correspondents from the very beginning of the war. Yet Richmond still stands, and his defiance to the threatening foe. Says this writer:"--We are gradually tacking up on the strong hold for a final at the. Old Lee has been completely outdone; and this rebellion must soon come to an end.* * * The Army of the Potomac is accomplishing exactly what it is intended for, and if Lee attempts to hold Richmond and allow himself to be bestowed, he will lose his whole army" The only important developments in this correspondence consist in the admission of the facts that Grant is to make the White House his base of supplies, that he contemplates a siege of Richmond, and that their losses have been terrible.

er the terrible ordeal he has been through, he can hardly expect to find a Vicksburg in Richmond. There is this striking difference between the two situations. Grant, according to Seward's letter to Adams, had 100,000 men at Vicksburg, and he operated against one fourth of his number. He had possession, likewise, of both the Yazoo and the Mississippi, thus completely hemming in the devoted city. Here, with Butler's army, his force does not greatly, if at all, exceed the combined forces of Lee and Beauregard. Besides, our communications are open in all directions, and can only be temporarily interrupted by parties of cavalry, which will always be followed up too closely to allow time for doing much damage. Upon the whole, our prospects seem very fair, so far as a siege is concerned, and should Grant prefer to contest the possession of the place in a pitched battle, we feel no apprehension whatever for the issue. In the meantime the proximity of the armies reders such a battle po
