It seems to have given him a great and valuable piece of information as to how few men can hold the Petersburg defences. Three divisions held those lines when the assailants had the assistance of a mine that had cost a month's labor, and it follows that Lee could have reinforced Early with a great many men if he had only known it. He knows it now, and it is not too late to act upon the knowledge. We shall soon, in all probability, have larger operations n
