k A. M. to day and probably are engaging the enemy at this time. Stanton, is a dispatch to Maj Gen Dix, at New York, says: A dispatch has been received from Gen Butler, dated, "in the field near Chester Station, Va, May 12th, 8.30 P. M." It states that he is now pressing the enemy ness Fort Darling, and has before him all the troop from North Carolina. Beauregard's courier, captured this morning, going to Gen Hope, commanding Drewry's Bluff, had a dispatch stating that "Gen Beauregard would join him as soon as the troops were up." Maj Gen Gillmore holds the entrenchments, while Maj Gen Smith demonstrates upon Drewry and the enemy's lines. Gen Kantz and his cavalry have been sent to cut the Danville Railroad near the Appomattox Station, and perhaps to advance on the James river. Miscellaneous. The Alabama put into Table Bay, March 20, for coals and other supplies. The total number of ships destroyed and captured in the Indian Seas had been seven: Th

But the circumstances of the two places are totally different, as is his situation near the Rappahannock from that on the Yazoo. He had no such adversary as Lee in front of him. Pemberton's small force he swept away without effort; Lee's army he has assailed for ten days with all his power, in vain. How can he pass such an army? He is compelled to defeat it before he can move on Richmond. General Lee, of course, is aware of the objects of his adversary, and his precautionary measures are generally equal to his remarkable forecast. Early yesterday morning our army under General Beauregard, on the south side of James river, commenced a vigorous assault upon the enemy's entrenchments some three miles below Drewry's Bluff — the result, as will be seen by reference to the news department of this paper, being of the most cheering character.
vement has taken place, and perfect quiet prevails. The Yankee gunboats still infest the river, but seem to have suspended their waste of ammunition in shelling the woods. Fort Clifton and other points on the shores of the James and the Appomattox. Beast Batler, pent up in a narrow ship of land in the county of Chesterfield, has ample time to send lying dispatches to Washington of the extent of his operations; but should he attempt to widen his sphere of action by another advance upon Gen Beauregard, he will doubtless find that officer ready to meet him.--Meantime the people must be patient. Exciting news cannot be constantly coming, and the present full in events will prevent a surfer of the popular appetite when the storm breaks loose afresh. From Gen. Lee's army. Persons who left the lines yesterday represent everything quiet in that direction. The War Office had no news of interest last right, and beyond a report that some vitality was apparent on the enemy's right (ou
Representations of the facts were made to the commander, and to day it is reported that they will be brought in. Reinforcements have arrived. Some of the fresh troops were longer on their way to the front than was anticipated or believed necessary, but they are here now, and will soon have an opportunity of retrieving their tardiness by acts of gallantry. Bukler's Reverse on the Southside — his falling back. The Herald contains a smoothed over account of Butler's defeat by Beauregard on Monday week We make the following extracts: Ominous silence had prevailed since two A M. It was now after four. The misty atmosphere gave a kind of terror to almost every object, and loomed up in unnatural proportions and outlines from the dark, hazy shadows of departing night.--All was vigilance and anxiety, except where here and there lay a weary soldier, slumbering on his moist and earthy pillow. The assault of the enemy on our right was made with cavalry, artillery, and
Generals Lee and Beauregard and their armies. We are inclined to believe that no city, with one hostile army on one side of it and another on the other — both wtrong may be their force — the citizens of Richmond feel assured that Lee and Beauregard, with the armies they command, are between them and harm, and that they will hat the most urgent emergency can demand. "Gen Lee knows all about it," or "Gen Beauregard will be sure to see that everything is done properly," or "I leave militaryy. Nobody believes that the enemy will ever enter Richmond as long as Lee and Beauregard, with such armies as they command, are interposed between them and Grant and s thus gratuitously bestowed upon them, none know better than the Yankees. Gen Beauregard has been so successful wherever he has commanded that he has been styled thops have even more confidence, if that be possible, in General Lee than in Gen. Beauregard, and the people have an abiding faith in the safety of any cause entrusted
t, not of a warrior. The accounts just received from his military operations are by no means flattering; in fact, his column has met with a decided reverse. Gen Beauregard, whom he ostentatiously announced as cut off from Richmond, has played Gen. Butler a scurry trick. He brought his army away from Petersburg by a route which ous in attack as he is skillful in defence, the wily Frenchman seized a proper moment to strike a damaging blow. On Monday morning, under cover of a heaving, Gen. Beauregard's forces stole a march on the Federal, some of his troops passing quite to the rear of the enemy, when a general attack was made. The surprise was a partial,is part of the line, but it is stated, were not so successful in the assault on Gen Gillmore's corps, which occupied the left. The result, in brief, was that Gen Beauregard captured more than a thousand prisoners, a half dozen pieces of artillery, and the abandonment by the Federal of the formidable line of works which they had p

The first very severe fighting occurred on Thu severest fight that has occurred around Petersburg took place. By this time Beauregard discovered that Grant, with his entire force, which was scarcely a handful, ao day the City Council held a meeting and appointed a committee to wait on Gen Beauregard and consult about the removal of the non- combatants. Gen. B. was not in wthe country. Yesterday a flag of truce was received from Gen Meade by Gen. Beauregard in regard to the burial of the dead, which, for proper reasons, was not granted by Gen. Beauregard. I have thus hurriedly recapitulated the events of the last few days, and given you the situation. One other work accomplished and my vancing. Our troops are in the best of spirits, and have every confidence in Beauregard as their immediate commander, whilst they have every confidence that Gen. Lee

ill the people think of all this sound and fury, when they are told that General Lee, the Secretary of War, and General Cooper were consulted in advance, and that they approved the appointment of General Bragg, and that General Johnston and General Beauregard have since also signified their approval of it. Such is even the fact! Now, who is the better judge of the fitness of an officer for a military position — the President of the Confederate States, the Secretary of War of the Confederate Sta their diminished heads in the presence of the new Daniel. One word is sufficient to dispose of Mr. Orr's various assault upon Gen Bragg in the Senate The reader will be at no loss when he is informed that Gen. Bragg found it necessary, on Beauregard's retreat from Corinth, to arrest a brother of the Senator for misconduct before the enemy. It is proper to add that the misconduct did not involve that officer's personal character in any respect. The time will come when the history of the A
a few shells have been thrown into the city. The enemy is strongly fortified in his lines reaching from the James river across the Appomattox, by Jorden's farm, to the Jerusalem plankroad, a distance of 7 miles. The weather is intensely warm, but our troops are in excellent plight, though constantly subjected to the heat and fatigue of lying in the trenches. Grant's purpose is not yet developed. It is supposed, however, he is meditating another of his grand raids. Our losses in all the fights of the last week for the possession of this place are not over one thousand in killed and wounded. That of the enemy is computed at five to six thousand. Beauregard's defence and preservation of the city is regarded by all as the most brilliant achievement of the war, having, with an inferior force, confronted and successfully kept back Grant's whole army. The enemy are reported crossing more troops from the north to the south side of the Appomattox this evening.
r? Has it made Richmond untenable? Has the city been taken? Has only a portion of the rebel army escaped? According to the writer's own showing, all these things must have happened, if "success vindicates the adoption" of Grant's plan. So far as our senses may be allowed to judge, not one of them has occurred. Lee remained in Spotsylvania ten days after Butler had landed at Bermuda Hundred. He did not fall back at last because of Butler, who was beaten and confined to the Hundred by Beauregard, without his assistance, or because he was beaten by Grant, whom he defeated with enormous slaughter whenever he attacked him. He fell back to Cold Harbor (not to Richmond) because after each successive defeat Grant endeavored to steal around him on his right, and get in between him and Richmond. He anticipated him every time, and force him at last to flank himself entirely over the river, thirty miles below Richmond. It is evident, then, that Grant's campaign, as here set forth, is an a
