The General news.
Our reasons will observe from our columns that the general news is neither extensive nor interesting.
The armies of Lee
are so near to each other that a collision appears unavoidable at an early day.--This would inevitably have taken place before this time had it not been for the terrible lessons the enemy received in Spotsylvania
, and the wholesome with which they inspired the enemy.
If we may trust the telegraph, Gen. Johnston
is leading the enemy a rough dance in Georgia
We are sanguine in the belief that his late retreat was strategical merely, and not enforced, and that he will eventually triumph over Sherman
pretend to believe that we are on the verge of destruction.
But gold, that most obstinate of skeptics refuses to be convinced, and attends at 188.
We believe than a week Gen. Lee
will send it up beyond that figure.
