st which for two weeks has concentrated upon that point has by no means abated, nor is it believed that the excitements of the campaign there are over. The gallant Beauregard is silently, but skillfully, making his preparations to give the enemy a hot salutation whenever he shall see proper to leave the protection of his fortifications; and whenever that time may come, we entertain no doubt of the result. From General Lux's army. All eyes are now turned towards the heroic army of General Lee, which lies in a position to intercept the enemy's approach to Richmond. It was the general impression that a beside would be fought yesterday, but the quiet of the day was unbroken. About 3 o'clock in the afternoon, a cavalryman rode up to Atlee's Station and stated that a hot fight was going on about two miles and a half down the road. Persons at Atlee's listened in vain for the sound of the guns, but nothing could be heard. Presently another horseman came in, who said he was just f
n the east side of that river in the direction of West Point. As intimated in a former letter, Gen Lee's lines extended along the range of hills on the south side of the North Anna, except on his flcross our lines of communication, as he did at Vicksburg. It only remains to be added that Gen Lee has made such a disposition of his own forces as to completely checkmate this last move of the of Grant's army down the east bank of the Pamunkey. This change of front made it necessary for Gen Lee to abandon his very strong position behind the North Anna, and to march down the south side of er his position, or plans, or numbers, it is believed that he has been completely checkmated by Gen Lee's last move upon the military chessboard. It would be obviously improper to be more particularch our supplies are drawn. I say he might do this — It should be added, provided he did not have Lee and Beauregard to contend with. With these masters of the art of war before him, he will find it

When the people of the North bring themselves to believe the palpable truth that Gen Lee's army is strong in numbers, brave in spirit, and free from nothing savoring of demoralization,ps fighting from behind breastworks are not likely to suffer so much as those making the attack. Lee fought under favorable circumstances in every engagement. At the Wilderness his men were conceal's army was so exhausted he determined to rest and strengthen his depleted corps. I am sure that Lee was also in need of rest, but we all know if Grant had offered battle on Friday Lee would have acLee. It says: No reasonable man could have ever looked forward to anything like a rout of Gen Lee's army any more than to that of our own. When such veteran corps as Longstreet's and Burnside'sunate on the James, we may expect weeks of stubborn contest between the gradually failing army of Lee and his increasingly strong and tenacious opponents for it must be remembered that Grant has yet
The General news. Our reasons will observe from our columns that the general news is neither extensive nor interesting. The armies of Lee and Grant are so near to each other that a collision appears unavoidable at an early day.--This would inevitably have taken place before this time had it not been for the terrible lessons the enemy received in Spotsylvania, and the wholesome with which they inspired the enemy. If we may trust the telegraph, Gen. Johnston is leading the enemy a roy inspired the enemy. If we may trust the telegraph, Gen. Johnston is leading the enemy a rough dance in Georgia. We are sanguine in the belief that his late retreat was strategical merely, and not enforced, and that he will eventually triumph over Sherman. The Yankees pretend to believe that we are on the verge of destruction. But gold, that most obstinate of skeptics refuses to be convinced, and attends at 188. We believe than a week Gen. Lee will send it up beyond that figure.
According to these accounts the several con of Lee, and Grant have been a series of unbroken succeod news have singularly forgotten to state that Lee has whipped Grant all the way from the Rapidan " it seems, "call such movements" as those of Gen. Lee "retreats." Let us see what those movements wh, 6th, 7th, 8th, and 9th, Grant tried to drive Lee before him at the Wilderness. Having lost 35,0e, and Lee ran after him. Taking a shorter cut, Lee got to the Court-House first, and Grant found hriously. As long as Grant remained in front of Lee, Lee stood his ground, delaying him to come on,e Wilderness — that is, he ran off himself, and Lee ran after him. Again Lee took a short cut, and Lee took a short cut, and got to the Junction before he did. There he stood for five days, waiting for Grant "to fight it oute Lee run by running first himself, and drawing Lee after him.
