pressibly touching than the noble generosity of our soldiers, acknowledged in the card below, by the Chairman of the Christian Association. Such deeds as these will be recorded on a page as bright as that on which are inscribed the battles in which they have shed their blood, that their country might live: Depot Army Committee Y M C A., Richmond, June 14, 1864. The Army Committee acknowledge with pleasure the receipt of one day's rations, contributed by the gallant soldiers of Gen Lee's army, for the benefit of the poor of this city, as follows: From Gen C A Evans's Brigade. From 1st regiment, 2d, 5th and 6th Rifles, and Palmetto Sharpshooters, of S C Volunteers, Jenkins's Brigade, per Joseph Mayo, Esq, Mayor. From 15th Alabama regiment, Col W C Oates, per J P Hill, Commissary Sergeant. From 8th and 20th South Carolina regiments, Kershaw's Brigade, per Major Joseph Kennedy. From 18th Virginia regiment, Bunton's Brigade, per C E Daugherty, Commiss
For Gen. Lee's Army Army of Northern Va., Near Riddle's Shop, June 15--p;7:30 P. M. Grant's exact whereabouts and intentions are still undetermined. A body of his cavalry attacked Gary's cavalry of our army this morning near Malvern Hill, and were driven back. McIntosh's brigade of Yankee cavalry has also been skirmishing with part of Hoth's division on the Charles City road, about two miles below Riddle's Shop, to-day. A few prisoners were captured, who say that it is the advance of Grant's army. It is not, however, believed to be anything more than a reconnoitering party. Grant is either going to the Southside, or is broken down and has gone below to re-organize and recruit. [second Dispatch.] Army Northern Virginia, June 16. --Part of Grant's forces have certainly gone to the Southside, but how much of it is yet doubtful. There is nothing in the situation to disclose that would be proper to communicate.

He says: "We have before called attention to the extraordinary fact, as stated by the rebel papers, that Lee and Johnston were gaining great victories — the one having retreated fifty miles, the other eighty, just that they might gnston's operations, from want of a proper degree of knowledge, we are not prepared to speak. But it is utterly false that Lee retreated one foot in the late operations. When an army retreats, its antagonist follows. In the operations indicated Grant always went before, and Lee followed. He was trying to cut Lee off from his base, and he failed in every instance. The Yankee press may lie and prevaricate as they will, the truth will come out at last. There is no campaign on record in whLee off from his base, and he failed in every instance. The Yankee press may lie and prevaricate as they will, the truth will come out at last. There is no campaign on record in which the party on the defensive suffered so little loss, and inflicted so much, as the present, and the Yankee nation will learn that before it grows many weeks older. The truth is hid from them now by precisely such sophistry as that contained in t
on of defeat, and his humanity was not strong enough to overcome his vanity. At last he sent a flag, with a proposition, not for a truce to bury his dead, but that firing should cease on both sides until the dead of both sides could be buried.--Gen. Lee at once perceived the trick, and answered that he had no dead or wounded outside of his lines. After equivocating and prevaricating for several days longer, Grant was obliged, at last, to ask for a truce, and it was granted him. Here was an unmask for a truce, and it was granted him. Here was an unmistakable confession of defeat. A correspondent, however, of the New York Times, writes a long letter, describing the mingling of both parties on the field of the dead, each removing its own men. According to this man's account, it was an arrangement mutually agreed on, and not a simple permission on the part of General Lee, and thus it will be represented in every paper in Yankeedom. Can anybody imagine anything more unutterably base?
