ront of our works, waved their handkerchiefs and hats for assistance, and the Yankees who came out of the woods to render it were picked off by our sharpshooters.--Grant is too much of a bull dog to send in a flag of truce, according to the customary mode of civilized warfare, since it would be a partial acknowledgment of defeat. t it amounted to nothing. Last night the enemy made a feeble assault upon Hoke and Finnegan, but were quickly repulsed. To day all has been unusually quiet. Grant is doubtless keeping the Sabbath holy. Our men are in fine spirits, and are being blessed with full rations and vegetable issues. It is estimated by officersmed under the Satanic councils of the "Christian Sanitary Commission." It was stated by Yankee officers in conversation, which was overheard by citizens, that Grant's losses in Spotsylvania, since the opening of the campaign, would probably reach 75,000 or 80,000. Stafford, Culpeper and Fauquier counties, it is reported,
f more importance than the generality of rumors it bore that one of Grant's couriers had been intercepted with a note from Grant himself to hGrant himself to his Chief of Commissarial, instructing him to use his stores with the utmost economy, and saying that he could get no more until he reached James river. The impression has very generally prevailed that Grant is trying to force his way to that river, and that impression may have givossession, we shall be in the position that McClellan was then, and Grant will be in the position that Gen. Lee then occupied.--Now, in 1862, held then as we do now, while we occupied the position now held by Grant. Thus far Grant has been unable to make the slightest impression uGrant has been unable to make the slightest impression upon these positions. On the contrary, he has been repulsed in every attack he has made, most signally and most murderously. The affair of Frefore, no great fears for White Oak Swamp or Malvern Hill, even if Grant should cross the Chickahominy, which he has not done yet. Meanwhile
abandoned his forces have been so reduced as to place him entirely on the defensive. Baldy Smith and Brooks, at the head of a large force, were sent off from Butler last week, and reached West Point on the 3 st. The Times says the news from Grant is of the most cheering character. He now occupies an excellent position — the same to some extent that McClellan formerly occupied, but that Grant is a different man from McClellan, has vaster resources greater means, and most glorious results Grant is a different man from McClellan, has vaster resources greater means, and most glorious results are sanguinely expected. The tidings from Sherman are said to be all that the Lincoln Administration could desire. A severe fight had occupied at Dallas, Geo, which resulted in the complete overthrow of the rebels, whose loss in estimated at 3,000. Sherman occupied Dallas, all the efforts of the rebels to eject him being completely foiled. The radical Black-Republican Convention, which met at Cleveland on the 30th, nominated for the Presidency John C. Fremont, and for the Vice Presi
e of Butler, is not with out consolation. He tells us what it is.--Grant, it seems, has possession of all McClellan's positions, has possesso tell us that all McClellan's positions are in our possession, not Grant's. Has Grant gotten possession of Mechanicsville, or Cold Harbor, oGrant gotten possession of Mechanicsville, or Cold Harbor, or Gaines's Mill, or the Grape Vine Bridge, on the northern side of the Chickahominy, or, on the south side, McClellan's enormous works in then, and he fought a battle and was whipped at each one of them. Has Grant got them all, or any one of them? If so, Gen. Lee certainly does nr any officer or soldier thereof. Nay, more: We shrewdly suspect Gen. Grant is himself ignorant of his good fortune, and that his whole army h an army whose daily amusement is the flog Grant's veterans — that Grant has day after day, and night after night, been assaulting one of t stream and all the avenues leading to it. As for the excellence of Grant's army, we have nothing to say. All we know is, that our men beat t
Yankee prisoners. --Since our last publication, from three to four hundred Yankee prisoners have been received at the Libby prison, captured from Grant's army. Since the commencement of the fights around Richmond the whole number of prisoners who have reported at the Libby amounts to thirteen hundred and sixty-three, of which forty-six were officers. There are a great many more on the way, and it will not be very long before the prison accommodations of the city will have to be extended.
