h, and it was most gladly welcomed by all. There was heavy cannonading on our centre yesterday about 11 o'clock, and for a while the impression prevailed among our citizens that a fight was brewing. But the firing was discontinued in less than thirty minutes, and matters remained unusually quiet during the balance of the day. The Southern railroad is still inoperative, the enemy being within the vicinity of the Six site House in large force. But this does not place the city nor Gen Lee's army in a state of siege. We are still in communication with many portions of the South, and can stand such a siege as Grant thinks he has estabitioned for twenty years to come. The raiders. As the raiders advance upon their line of contemplated operation and become nearly further removed from us, we hear less of their movements. There is no doubt that they contemplated the effectual destruction of the Danville Railroad and at the time this is written the latest we get from them

His peace faction is evidently coming to grie

All this braggadocio is but whistling to keep up the spirits on the part of the Yankees. They see that Grant, after unheard of losses, is in a situation from which he cannot retreat without absolute ruin to the vile cause he was sent here to sustain, and that it is impossible for him to advance as long as Gen. Lee's army is in his front. Their dependence now is upon destroying the railroads on the Southside. That failing, their whole scheme fails. That succeeding, they succeed in putting our soldiers on short rations, probably for two or three weeks, until the damage can be repaired. If they fight, we shall beat them; if they sit still, the lever will do our work for us. Either way their job is a desperate one. If, in the meantime, Grant, baffled on that side, shall lead his army back to this, w
