papers of the 28th ult have been received, but they contain very little news of interest:
correspondent of the New York Post
states that gigantic preparations are going on for the approaching campaign in Virginia
; that General Grant
is actively making his arrangements for a great battle, and that whilst it is not probable that the shock of arms will take place during the week, if General Lee
