On the 9th he telegraphs to Secretary Staunton: "I have advanced my lines twelve miles--Lee is retiring on Richmond." The surrender of Gen. Steele, with 9,000 prisoners and all his artillery and wagons, is published and acknowledged. Banks has been removed from command in Louisiana, and General Canby put in his place. Grant's lying telegrams to Washington had caused gold in New York to fall from 180 to 171.
