arrels for Mr. Kean, 1 for Mr. Cohen, and 1 for Mr. Shepherd. This has produced great indignation among the 200 clerks who sent him, and who got but 73-pounds each, and they got 13 pounds of bacon each; while Mr. P. bought for himself 400 pounds. October 14 The following dispatch from Gen. Lee cheered the city this morning. None of the particulars of the battle have yet transpired, and all are looking hourly for a renewal of the contest. headquarters army of Northern Virginia, October 13th, 1864. Hon. James A. Seddon, Secretary of War. At seven o'clock this morning the enemy endeavored to advance between the Darbytown and Charles City Roads, but was repulsed in every attempt. The most strenuous effort was made about four P. M., after which he withdrew, leaving many dead. Our loss very slight. Gen. Breckinridge reports that a force (f the enemy came to Greenville on the 12th, and was defeated by Gen. Vaughan. Some prisoners, two stands of colors, many horses and arms

He had a cavalry fight, overcame the enemy, and drove them for miles; but encountering a body of infantry which was too much for him, he had to retreat, leaving his guns to the enemy. The hospitals are full of the wounded; my afternoons are very much engaged, nursing them. I was very sorry yesterday to find R. S. painfully wounded. October 13th, 1864.

Rumours of fighting below Richmond; we hear the cannon, but it is said to be merely a skirmish. October 20th, 1864. Nothing new in the field. Armies quiet; perhaps preparing for dreadful work. I got a note last night from J. P., written with a pencil. He and other prisoners are working ten hours a day on Dutch Gap Canal. They work under the fire of our own batt

Colonel Alexander, of the Engineers, will be sent to consult with you as soon as you connect with General Augur. H. W. Halleck, Major-General. As it was well known in Washington that the views expressed in the above despatch were counter to my convictions, I was the next day required by the following telegram from Secretary Stanton to repair to that city: Washington, October 13, 1864. Major-General Sheridan (through General Augur): If you can come here, a consultation on several points is extremely desirable. I propose to visit General Grant, and would like to see you first. Edwin M. Stanton, Secretary of War. I got all ready to comply with the terms of Secretary Stanton's despatch, but in the meantime the enemy appeared in my front in force, with infantry and cavalry, and attacked Colonel Thoburn, who had been pushed out toward Strasburg from Crook's com

The impediments to the importation of such supplies as must still come from abroad, must be overcome, as they arise, by individual energy and resource.
