at quarter, and the usual number of rumores were in circulation. It is now generally conceded that the larger portion of Grant's army has been moved to the new field of operations. We may state here, by by way of encouragement to our people, that,at nothing of the sort occurred. [from our own correspondent.] Army of Northern Virginia, June 16th, 6 P. M. Grant sent his cavalry reconnoitering parties towards our lines yesterday to amuse us and reconnoitre our lines; while he himseis forces to the Southside, but how many cannot now be ascertained. From facts in my possession, however, I do not think Grant's whole force has crossed the "noble James." Both of the demonstrations on our front, the one below Riddle's Shop and thelve thousand. Over thirty transports ascended James river with troops on the same day, and the impression prevailed that Grant had landed nearly his entire army on the Southside.

tely unsettled for the last fortnight. Opinions and surmises as to Grant's performances and prospects have been more candid and sensible thawar commenced.--No one cares to make himself a foot by depreciating Grant's courage, strategy or prospects. Of course there are plenty t be expected. The best resume of the situation and performances of Grant in any of the journals here will be found in to-day's Spectator andneral was entitled to have "victory" inscribed on his banners it is Grant, for the eight days fighting from the 5th to the 13th of May. The sh army, in answer to some remarks about the "useless slaughter" of Grant's men, declared that since the art of war was practiced better genecipally to find your enemy and then administer hard blows, and this Grant has done, and with tremendous effect" Were I permitted to give the e balcony they heard loud hurrahs for Lee, mingled with curses upon Grant and his hosts.

attributes to God the crimes for which he and his abettors are responsible, and dares to attribute to the Almighty the great wrong that he has done to the black race in forcibly depriving them of their comfortable homes and kind masters; and then, rising from the task with one of his hideous smutty jokes, he sets to work with Stanton to plan his campaign in North Carolina. As he penned it so it has resulted. The successful defence of Plymouth would have enabled. Burnside's corps to have landed there. The march of the united columns of Burnside, Peck, Wessels, and Baldy Smith towards Richmond would have enabled Grant to move the Army of the Potomac also towards the rebel capital, and, between the two great armies, Richmond might have fallen. This must be prevented, and it has been prevented. Richmond must not yet be takes. The war must still go on, in the interest of God and humanity; but no great victory must be won, lest the renomination of honest old Abe be imperiled."
The great plan of this campaign. --The St Louis Republican, at the opening of this campaign, published the following: This theory which limits Gen Grant's plan of campaign to the capture of Richmond, does but half justice. He may capture the rebel capital without capturing the rebel Government machinery, and without overthrowing Lee's army. In that event, further active and prompt operations will be necessary. Gen Grant foresees this, and has provided for it. He has not only formGen Grant foresees this, and has provided for it. He has not only formed a plan for the capture of Richmond, but has arranged a perfect scheme for the prosecution of the comprehend afterward, as a little attention to the comprehensive movements now going on in Virginia will reveal. The first and most important of these movements is that of the Army of the Potomac against Lee. The second is that of Sigel and Stahl up the Shenandoah Valley towards Staunton, with the view first of procuring possession of the Virginia Central Railroad, running from Richmond thr
For Gen. Lee's Army Army of Northern Va., Near Riddle's Shop, June 15--p;7:30 P. M. Grant's exact whereabouts and intentions are still undetermined. A body of his cavalry attacked Gary's cavalry of our army this morning near Malvern Hill,City road, about two miles below Riddle's Shop, to-day. A few prisoners were captured, who say that it is the advance of Grant's army. It is not, however, believed to be anything more than a reconnoitering party. Grant is either going to the Grant is either going to the Southside, or is broken down and has gone below to re-organize and recruit.

hand at it. He says: "We have before called attention to the extraordinary fact, as stated by the rebel papers, that Lee and Johnston were gaining great victories — the one having retreated fifty miles, the other eighty, just that they might get Grant and Sherman where they wanted them." Of Johnston's operations, from want of a proper degree of knowledge, we are not prepared to speak. But it is utterly false that Lee retreated one foot in the late operations. When an army retreats, its antagonist follows. In the operations indicated Grant always went before, and Lee followed. He was trying to cut Lee off from his base, and he failed in every instance. The Yankee press may lie and prevaricate as they will, the truth will come out at last. There is no campaign on record in which the party on the defensive suffered so little loss, and inflicted so much, as the present, and the Yankee nation will learn that before it grows many weeks older. The truth is hid from them now by pr
Unutterable Meanness. It will be recollected that after the terrible slaughter of Grant's men on the 3d, he allowed his wounded to remain on the ground outside of our works for several days, unable to take the ground, and preferring to let them perish for want of assistance to sending a flag of truce asking permission to bury the dead. The flag would have been an admission of defeat, and his humanity was not strong enough to overcome his vanity. At last he sent a flag, with a propositioiring should cease on both sides until the dead of both sides could be buried.--Gen. Lee at once perceived the trick, and answered that he had no dead or wounded outside of his lines. After equivocating and prevaricating for several days longer, Grant was obliged, at last, to ask for a truce, and it was granted him. Here was an unmistakable confession of defeat. A correspondent, however, of the New York Times, writes a long letter, describing the mingling of both parties on the field of the d
