Information was received last night that the enemy, in heavy force, was advancing on Hanover Court-House. Grant's whole army, with the exception of Warren's corps, has crossed the Pamunkey at Hanover Town, and his line-of-battle extends from that point to a position some distance in front of Atlee's station — which is a point on the Central railroad, nine

At an early hour this morning it was ascertained that Grant had withdrawn his army under cover of darkness last night to the north bank of the North Anna, aattempt that might be made against either wing of his army. This disposition of his forces left Grant room to throw the greater part of his own army across to the south bank. The latter had exactedginia, Banks of the Chickahominy, May 29. You have already been advised of the movement of Grant's army down the east bank of the Pamunkey. This change of front made it necessary for Gen Lee tfied with the situation, never more resolute, and never more confident of success. But will Grant move against Richmond by the route taken by McClellan? Can he expect, after his experience at Sby the James and Appomattox rivers, and his front by a formidable line of entrenchments. Should Grant once succeed in forming a junction with him, and especially in transferring his army to the sout
inia, May 28th, 1864. [from our own Correspondent.] Yesterday morning found Grant on the north side of the North Anna river, moving rapidly down its banks towards the Pamunkey. Scouts who have just come in say that Grant concluded to pull up stakes on Thursday. Accordingly all that day and night his troops were in motion. Sheridan made a junction with Grant on Wednesday night, and the next morning early he started ahead of the main body of the army with a large pontoon train, moving the White House, essaying again McClellan's road in the "on to Richmond." Grant has received some reinforcements, but not to the extent that Yankee journals would have us believe. The morale of his men is by no menus what Grant could wish for. Accounts from the Central and Fredericksburg railways represent the formerarmy are unbroken, and they are as buoyant and confident as when they first met Grant in the Wilderness and though our numbers may be diminished, in nothing also can

The General news. Our reasons will observe from our columns that the general news is neither extensive nor interesting. The armies of Lee and Grant are so near to each other that a collision appears unavoidable at an early day.--This would inevitably have taken place before this time had it not been for the terrible lessons the enemy received in Spotsylvania, and the wholesome with which they inspired the enemy. If we may trust the telegraph, Gen. Johnston is leading the enemy a rough dance in Georgia. We are sanguine in the belief that his late retreat was strategical merely, and not enforced, and that he will eventually triumph over Sherman. The Yankees pretend to believe that we are on the verge of destruction. But gold, that most obstinate of skeptics refuses to be convinced, and attends at 188. We believe than a week Gen.
