ne to protect Washington, or have the causes for the failure of their late campaign investigated. "If Grant was deceived in regard to the magnitude of his tas, Lee was astonished that his was not more easily performed. A few days campaigning was all he was accustomed to endure on the south side of the Rapidan. All true Confetrategy and opposition, until we settled around Petersburg, and look from the 'sunny South' upon the five steeples that shoot up in stately beauty among the trees. Lee is the greater sufferer in these under-estimates. Grant loses time, and men, and money; Lee loses the Confederacy and his immortal past reputation. To be mistakenLee loses the Confederacy and his immortal past reputation. To be mistaken in your foe and then conquered is a great trial. Deceived in an enemy — defeated by an expected easy prey. This is the 'Great Chieftain's' fate, and a hard one it must be to so successful a general. "Three months are left us for field service. We can endure even unto the end. Will our enemy, already weakened and worn, live
on railroad. The Macon Intelligencer, of the 1st instant, has the following brief account of the fight on the Macon and Western railroad just previous to the capture of Atlanta: To-day the Yankees effected a lodgement on the Macon and Western railroad, between Rough and Ready and East Point stations. They attacked our forces with six corps, and by a very fierce and obstinate effort, succeeded in gaining the position which divides our army. General Hardee's corps, under Cleburne, and Lee's corps, all combined, under charge of General Hardee resisted the advance of the enemy with determined valor and unexampled bravery from early this morning until night, when the enemy still held possession of the road. General Hood, with Stewart's corps and the Georgia militia, remains in Atlanta, and communication between the two portions is kept up only by couriers, It is supposed that the enemy will make a rapid and terrible onset on the defences of Atlanta at the earliest moment the

Mr. Lee has since removed his provisions to the second story of his residence in consequence of an attempt which was made to break into the basement and from the procedure of the operators on Tuesday night, strong suspicious are entertained thMr. Lee has since removed his provisions to the second story of his residence in consequence of an attempt which was made to break into the basement and from the procedure of the operators on Tuesday night, strong suspicious are entertained that the thieves have been well acquainted with the movements on his lot. They went prepared with a ladder, buckets and ropes, and a seconded to the window landing to the store room from the outside; here it is supposed the brackets were filled by some one inside and lowered down to the ground, with the rope swung across the first round of the ladder in order to prevent them from striking against the side of the house, and thereby possibly alarming the inmates by the noise which would be made in
doing what disabled soldiers could do just as well; numbers of white men doing what negroes could do much better; and numbers of young men doing nothing at all. We want the services of all these — the country requires them — the crisis demands them — and the Bureau of Conscription has already indicated who and what they are, and where to be found. The three months that must elapse before the campaign shall have closed are important months to us. If employed as they might be, they would, in all probability, become the period from which to date the rise of a feeling on the part of our enemy that may tend to peace. The campaign thus far has been a losing business to him. We must take care that it continue to be so. Grant promises, if furnished with one hundred thousand more men, to finish all the necessary fighting in six weeks. They will be furnished, and we must enable Lee to meet him. The question as to whether we can do it, is no question at all. We can do it and we should do
