to the same city. If Hunter and Crook have captured Lynchburg, which is their object, no railroad communication with Richmond remains but the road to Danville. Sheridan is probably operating upon that line. There is a report in the Richmond papers of the defeat of that gallant officer by Fitzhugh Lee but with the memory of the ant is pushing forward his troops to "follow up the success" we judge that there is still considerable work to be done at that point. [We should think so] Sheridan's report of his raid. Sheridan's official report, which is published says that he destroyed the Central railroad from Trevillian's to Louisa C. M. His intentiSheridan's official report, which is published says that he destroyed the Central railroad from Trevillian's to Louisa C. M. His intention was to cut the railroad between Charlottesville and Gordonsville and march on Charlottesville. The engagement was the most brilliant of the war, and was not renewed because the horses were out of forage and the men out of ammunition. He took and brought off 370 prisoners of war, including commissioned officers. His loss in

"There's many a slip 'twixt the cup and the lip," and before the close of the day Hunter changed his tune, and at dark was in full retreat. Before leaving his headquarters Hunter stated to gentlemen in the neighborhood that Sheridan was expected to co-operate with him in the attack on this city, and that Butler was to send up a column from the Southside.--Neither of these had come to time, and hence the necessity of his "change of base." The battle-field on Sunday presented quite a ghastly spectacle. A circumstance connected with the enemy's dead is worthy of notice, as showing the accuracy of the aim of our sharpshooters. A gentleman undertook to count the dead as they lay on the field, and to note the place whe
