One of the Senators of the United States informs his people that General Grant expects the evacuation of Richmond in ten days. It is almost that period since the announcement was made. But we see no sign at present of the fulfillment of the prediction. The evacuation of Richmond has been promised by the Federal doctors a good many times, but the patient seems incorrigible. It is the most obstinate case of costiveness recorded in the books, and might defy even Brandeth's pills. It is astonishing that a sagacious people can be so often and so long deceived; but "hope springs immortal in the human breast." From Seward's "ninety days" they have been led by the nose for four years, always believing that the end of the rebellion was close at hand.--Constantly deceived by the mirage, they as constantly believe that it is reality; and though the deception costs them rivers of blood and seas of treasure, they persevere with as invincible faith as if they had never been imposed u

. Nothing of importance has occurred on these lines since the battle of last Saturday. From Grant's official reports concerning the battle, which we publish elsewhere, it would appear that our llieve; yet we confess ourselves to be without the means of contradicting the Yankee statements. Grant claims to have captured twenty-two hundred of our men during the attack on Forts Steadman and Hatters from Petersburg just after the fight stated that "we lost several hundred prisoners." Grant also claims to have taken five hundred prisoners at Hatcher's run on the same day. Again, as in ill not be pretended that no Yankees were killed or wounded in the fight. We have no doubt that Grant has as much exaggerated his captures as he has understated his losses. The glaring falsity of os, are now in the James river. Commodore Porter is in command of the James River fleet. General Grant's headquarters are at Dr. Eppes's house, at City Point. Movements of the enemy in East
