d, a portrait painter of merit, who resides to the left of the Richmond and Petersburg Railroad, two miles from Chester. Butler visited the house, accompanied by a body guard of eight hundred negro cavalry, and spent nearly the shole of one day on they were also assured that their property should be protected. The Beast had the duplicity to add to Mrs. Copeland, "General Butler, Madam, is a mate of his word — his pledge is his bond, and whatever he says you may rely upon." With this assurance,d every imaginable article of any value carried off. Upon ascertaining her losses, and how grossly the solemn promises of Butler had been falsified, Mrs. Copeland addressed a polite note to the Beast, reminding him of his assurances. This was handed to one of his Staff, who faithfully promised to deliver it, and at the same time added, "Gen. Butler is a gentleman and a man of his word, he will fulfill to the letter every promise; he is a man of strong feelings, but when a friend he is a friend
om Yankeedom. Petersburg, May 24. --Northern dates to the 21st have been received. Grant telegraphs that an effort was made on Thursday evening by Ewell's corps to turn the Yankee right, which was promptly repulsed. Three hundred prisoners fell into Yankee hands, besides many killed and wounded. Yankee loss 600 wounded, 150 killed and missing.

A hard fight for Atlanta is looked for. The Herald states that among the passengers on board

Lee's front, or will keep on upon the old stage road, and pursue the route by Hanover Court House, which brings him to Richmond by the Meadow Bridge road, or whether he will still continue to incline to the left, until he shall have reached McClellan's old base at West Point, where he may hope to form a junction with Butler. We should think the last the most probable conjecture, did it not imply an acknowledgement of defeat, which the Convention to assemble at Baltimore on the 7th June, could not mistake, and afford to McClellan a triumph, which might be fatal to the pretensions alike of Lincoln and Grant. As it is, we think he will come straight on, either by the Telegraph road, or by the old stage road, or by both. Whatever he may determine on, we entertain no doubt whatever of his signal defeat whenever the next trial
