One minute ball from the Yankees passed through the window of Dr McCabe's chamber, and buried itself in the wall of the closet, smashing a small quantity of glassware. They finally moved down the Mountain road towards the Yellow Tavern, and the rest of their movements you know. The veracious officers announced the defeat of Lee by Grant, the taking of Petersburg by Butler, the death of Longstreet, and similar lies. Providentially, Dr McCabe was in the city attending to his duties, or he too would have had to share the fate of the Rev Mr Winston. God grant that the news we hear from Gen Lee's army may be, without abatement, a fact. If so we may thank Him, and take fresh heart for the conflict. Resident. P.
