dly whipped on Friday and Saturday that he has to take time to recuperate, or in engaged in rendering his position secure, preliminary to his grand assault.--Shells occasionally drop into the city, but they fail to create any undue alarm amongst the inhabitants, and all is calm and confident. Meanwhile, according to common report the enemy have landed a considerate force at Deep Bottom, on the north side of James river, a few miles below Chatin's The object of this is probably to direct General Lee's attention from the main operations near Petersburg, but the experiment may cost them quite as dearly is others have cost since the commencement of the campaign. At a late hour last night we received the of yesterday, but it contains very little in addition to what is given in our letter elsewhere. All was on Monday on the enemy's left, at which point it was confidently a heavy assault would be On other portions of the lines was heavy skirmishing, and some artery practice, b

The worst is over, and Lieut Gen Grant can come on as soon as he is ready for the fray. June 21.--10 P. M. Some little artillery and musketry firing this morning, but the enemy show no signs of advancing. Our troops are in the best of spirits, and have every confidence in Beauregard as their immediate commander, whilst they have every confidence that Gen. Lee will not only keep matters straight here, but throughout Virginia and North Carolina, over which his command now extends. The enemy's sharpshooters, for the last few days, have been quite unerring in their aim, and have been doing us some harm. It is needless to say that Grant is busy digging dirt and making trenches to protect himself. June 21. 11:40, P. M. Nothing up to this hour worth chronicling. Stray shells occasionally find their way into the city, and the pi
recent Victories — the losses of Gen Sturgis. Memphis advices of the 14th contain further accounts of the defeat of Sturgis by Gen Forrest in Mississippi. A telegram says: The troops comprising the expedition were two brigades of cavalry under Grierson, and two brigades of infantry, the 1st Illinois light artillery, and two regiments of colored infantry, all under command of Gen. Sturgis. Citizens report that Kirby Smith was in command of the enemy, assisted by Forrest, Roddy, and Lee. Forrest is said to have started his entire command for Georgia, but recalled them upon learning of the advance of our forces. Our troops (especially the colored regiments) are said to have fought with desperate valor, but of eighteen pieces of artillery four only were brought off. About one hundred wagons were taken, and the greater portion of our wounded tell into the enemy's hands. The enemy's cavalry, after the retreat, pursued our forces to Colliersville. The enemy's loss is suppo

did all he could, with the means at his disposal, to prevent its falling into the hands of the wretch Butler. He has General Lee defended Richmond? By going forward and meeting the enemy, and not waiting for him behind the fortifications of the Cy in the rear of Petersburg worth naming, and thus save that town and Richmond also. For this he was denounced, while General Lee is applauded, and yet the result has shown the wisdom of his plans, and that he understood his business as well as histhey say, ought not to hold his office; he is a vindictive malicious tyrant and marplot, and should not be placed over General Lee, General Cooper, and the Secretary of War; he will misted and control the President. Control the President. The cry that he would not even be advised. But what will the people think of all this sound and fury, when they are told that General Lee, the Secretary of War, and General Cooper were consulted in advance, and that they approved the appointment of General
these columns should be strong enough to fight Lee out of his entrenchments — a circumstance which would compel Lee to keep his army together, as a division, with the James river between the sectioital from the South, and be able to take it, if Lee did not fall back; if he did fall back the army it.

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 — could not prevent his being confronted at Petersburg by the same terrible army which has so often defeated him — could not remove the necessity of placing himself in a situation in which, but for his facilities of water navigation, he mu
