ncentration, and willing to risk everything to save Richmond, would willingly have sacrificed Southwestern territory to secure the great point in Virginia. But now does it stand now. Johnston coming to reinforce Lee would find his progress to Richmond barred by the same opponent who stopped his junction with Pemberton in Vicksburg. We secure this, therefore, first, that the enemy shall receive no addition to his strength, while our position effects a concentration of both the forces of Butler and Hunter with the main operating forces. While, however, we have reason to look forward to great and important results as coming from the new position of the army, I am very far from looking on our success as a foregone conclusion. We have opposed to us an enemy of the highest skill, handling an army of sufficient strength still to attempt great things, and animated by a spirit of desperation. I fully expect some bold, audacious initiative on the part of Lee, and the greater the
altimore Gazette, of the 21st inst: From Petersburg and vicinity. The official bulletin, dated 10 o'clock last night, states that no report of the operations of yesterday (20th) had been received at the War Department. Unofficial accounts received at Washington, represent the Federal loss, in the several assaults on the enemy's works, on Saturday last, to have been severe; but there had been no official report made of the casualties. These has been nothing reliable received from Gen. Butler. The additional particulars which are furnished from the Headquarters of the Army of the Potomac, and also from Bermuda Hundred, speak of the fighting on Friday last, (17th) along the greater part of the Federal line before Petersburg, as being very severe. We are told, moreover, that although each division of the 2d corps attempted in turn to storm the enemy's breastworks but little, ground was gained, as the Federal troops, in making the assault, were obliged to cross open fields
That this is his now settled policy there can be scarcely a doubt, and it is clearly foreshadowed in the following editorial which we find in the Philadelphia Inquirer, of Monday last: "Jeff Davis's means for supplying his army near Richmond, and for swift communication with his Southern dominions, consist of three railroads and a canal. The railroads are the Virginia Central, just broken up by Sheridan, at Trevillian; the Richmond and Petersburg, now cut off by Smith at one end and Butler at the other, and the Richmond and Danville, which is the only one that Davis has left. This, however, is a very important road on account of his connections. At Burkesville, fifty-three miles from Richmond, and the same distance from Petersburg, it connects with the Lynchburg road, furnishing communication with that place and also with Gordonsville, although by a long and inconvenient circuit. From Burkesville, the Richmond and Danville road extends eighty seven miles to Danville on the
