gineer, and are said to be of no kind of service, and were so pronounced by Gen Beauregard when first he saw them. The first very severe fighting occurred on Thu severest fight that has occurred around Petersburg took place. By this time Beauregard discovered that Grant, with his entire force, which was scarcely a handful, ao day the City Council held a meeting and appointed a committee to wait on Gen Beauregard and consult about the removal of the non- combatants. Gen. B. was not in wthe country. Yesterday a flag of truce was received from Gen Meade by Gen. Beauregard in regard to the burial of the dead, which, for proper reasons, was not granted by Gen. Beauregard. I have thus hurriedly recapitulated the events of the last few days, and given you the situation. One other work accomplished and my vancing. Our troops are in the best of spirits, and have every confidence in Beauregard as their immediate commander, whilst they have every confidence that Gen. Lee

ill the people think of all this sound and fury, when they are told that General Lee, the Secretary of War, and General Cooper were consulted in advance, and that they approved the appointment of General Bragg, and that General Johnston and General Beauregard have since also signified their approval of it. Such is even the fact! Now, who is the better judge of the fitness of an officer for a military position — the President of the Confederate States, the Secretary of War of the Confederate Sta their diminished heads in the presence of the new Daniel. One word is sufficient to dispose of Mr. Orr's various assault upon Gen Bragg in the Senate The reader will be at no loss when he is informed that Gen. Bragg found it necessary, on Beauregard's retreat from Corinth, to arrest a brother of the Senator for misconduct before the enemy. It is proper to add that the misconduct did not involve that officer's personal character in any respect. The time will come when the history of the A
a few shells have been thrown into the city. The enemy is strongly fortified in his lines reaching from the James river across the Appomattox, by Jorden's farm, to the Jerusalem plankroad, a distance of 7 miles. The weather is intensely warm, but our troops are in excellent plight, though constantly subjected to the heat and fatigue of lying in the trenches. Grant's purpose is not yet developed. It is supposed, however, he is meditating another of his grand raids. Our losses in all the fights of the last week for the possession of this place are not over one thousand in killed and wounded. That of the enemy is computed at five to six thousand. Beauregard's defence and preservation of the city is regarded by all as the most brilliant achievement of the war, having, with an inferior force, confronted and successfully kept back Grant's whole army. The enemy are reported crossing more troops from the north to the south side of the Appomattox this evening.
r? Has it made Richmond untenable? Has the city been taken? Has only a portion of the rebel army escaped? According to the writer's own showing, all these things must have happened, if "success vindicates the adoption" of Grant's plan. So far as our senses may be allowed to judge, not one of them has occurred. Lee remained in Spotsylvania ten days after Butler had landed at Bermuda Hundred. He did not fall back at last because of Butler, who was beaten and confined to the Hundred by Beauregard, without his assistance, or because he was beaten by Grant, whom he defeated with enormous slaughter whenever he attacked him. He fell back to Cold Harbor (not to Richmond) because after each successive defeat Grant endeavored to steal around him on his right, and get in between him and Richmond. He anticipated him every time, and force him at last to flank himself entirely over the river, thirty miles below Richmond. It is evident, then, that Grant's campaign, as here set forth, is an a
