mortar lines, and it is presumed that the fire had some effect, for on yesterday the Yankees were perfectly docile, and desisted in a great measure from their accustomed practice of shelling the city. It was currently reported yesterday that Grant was again "changing his base" by making a movement to the North side of James river; but we have been unable to learn that it has any foundation in fact. The only thing known with certainty is that some movement has been in progress in the enemy's camp, but the people of Petersburg seem to be as much mystified in regard to its nature as those living at a greater distance from the scene of operations. It is stated on what is deemed good authority that Grant is moving his forces on the two rivers — the Appomattox and the James. The scar city of water in the interior doubtless had something to do with this movement; but the more probable solution is that it was done for the convenience of removing the troops to any particular locality
olid shot thrown into the streets of the capital city. The call for hundred days men has been feebly responded to. In the hour of our pressing need, when militia are scared enough to come, Gunpowder bridge is burned and they can't get here. Grant says if we can take care of the North he will attend to Richmond. No one doubts the indomitable soldier; but in the name of all that is honorable and manly, let us defend our own firesides with the immense means yet at our disposal. The season cisive results than ever before. We operate directly upon the two great armies in which is centred the power of the rebellion, and our operations against them for the last two months have certainly been productive of very great results. General Grant has not only driven Lee from the Rapidan to the Appomattox, and destroyed a third of the enemy's army, but he has gotten in the strategical rear of Richmond, from which he can operate against it with the greatest possible incivility. Already
e will leave nothing untried which may add to those difficulties. What effect it will have upon the Northern nominations remains to be seen; but we think we may safely say that the skies begin to brighten in the direction of Atlanta. As for Grant's troops which have crossed to the North side, we feel no uneasiness about them, feeling assured that they will be closely watched, and properly attended to whenever they attempt any movement. Grant we are convinced, is preparing another flank mt think he can do that. The story of his mining we do not credit, for we do not hold him to be an absolute fool, and a man must be such to think of capturing an army in the open field, drawn up in line of battle, by sapping and mining. Probably Grant is dividing his forces, in order that he may send out two great marauding expeditions at the same time one on the North and the other on the South. Upon the whole, the military situation has never looked so promising as it does upon this mor
Mining Petersburg. The rumor that Grant is mining Petersburg is nonsensical. If it were practicable, what could he gain by it? It is more likely that he would attempt to undermine Gen. Lee's positions, whilst keeping up a great clatter with bombshells on Petersburg. It is not probable, however, that any attempt to undermine Gen. Lee would first be discovered outside the army.
