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.

That of t 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.

Burning houses, mills, and barns, robbing the inhabitants, and stealing the negroes, do not advance the Yankee cause in the slightest degree, while they make soldiers of all who suffer. Grant himself ought to have learned this by this time. His raiders could not prevent his being flogged every time he encountered our army — could not prevent his campaign from failing signally and disastrously — could not relax the gripe which Lee has upon his throat — could not prevent his being turned off entirely from Richmond, which he hoped to enter from the --could not stove off the accessibly of taking shatter under his gunboats — could not enable him to remain on this side of the river
