Gen. Lee's army — later from the North.
The only intelligence we have heard of reaching the city was from an officer of the Signal Corps stationed on the lower James
, who had been fortunate enough to have an opportunity of reading Northern papers of the 6th.
This officer telegraphs to the War. Department that there journals state that not one word had been heard from Gen. Meade
's army since the 4th, and that they contain nothing whatever with reference to the great battles which have taken place at Gettysburg
The same officer alluded to telegraphs that the papers of the 6th speak despondingly of the situation of Gen. Banks
they had no later intelligence than that contained in their issues of the 4th.
Among the rumors which got loose yesterday day was one to the effect that Vice President Stephens
had been informed at Fortress Monroe
's army was in full retreat.
