The war News. Rumors from the front were abundant yesterday; yet it is a singular fact that the nearer the scene of operations to Richmond, the more difficult it is to obtain reliable accounts of the progress of events. We give ow such reports as we have received. From General Lee's army. At an early hour yesterday morning the sound of a heavy and rapid cannonade was heard from the direction of the lines, and a gentleman who passed near the scene informs us that the discharges of infantry for period were incessant. It is reported this engagement took place in front of General Hoke's division, which, being reinforced, drove the enemy back with considerable slaughter and captured 300 prisoners. We learn through a courier that the enemy came up in heavy force of infantry, supported by a battery, that our troops rushed forward, charged the battery, captured its and took stand of colors. It is stated that some prisoners, but that the enemy were fairly repulsed.
From General Lee's army. [from our own correspondent.] Army on Northern Virginia,Banks of the Chickahominy, May 31, 1864. We are too near to the enemy to speak with much particularity of the military condition in front of Richmond. Grant, the hills on the north side of the last mentioned stream. His position is a strong one--so strong, indeed, that I hope Gen Lee will be able to give him battle upon some other field. A reconnaissance was made yesterday afternoon to ascertain the recommended him for the appointment of Brigadier General. Indeed, young as he was, he had attracted the attention of Gen Lee, Gen Ewell, and of almost every prominent officer in the army. There is hardly an officer in the entire army who did nod Sea was to Pharoah and his hosts. It is not believed that Grant will move out from his present position to attack Gen Lee. If there is a battle in the next few days the Confederates must take the initiative, or it is not probable that there w
Foul Pray with blockade Runners. --The Wilmington Journal says it has been hinted before that there was something like foul play connected with the capture of the Robert E Lee, (formerly the Giraffe,) and the following from the Halifax (N S) Journal, of the 29th April, seems to give color to the accusation: We understand that the American Consul at this port has been endeavoring to bribe the engineers and other officers on board the Confederate steamers in this port to betray their trust, as it is believed he was only the successful in doing in the case of the Robert Lee. He succeeded in gaining admittance to the City of Petersburg the other day without the Captain's knowledge; and we are requested by Captain Fuller to state that when he repeats his visit he will be provided with a speedy passage to the bottom of the dock, with a sinker upon him sufficient to keep him there. This is dignified work certainly for a representative of a nation which claims to be civilized — th
Sigel on Lee. --On Tuesday night (a week before Breckinridge whipped him,) Gen Sigel, according to the New York Times, made a very remarkable speech in Martinsburg, Va. He said: "The war has gone on three years, and it is a great disgrace to the North that, with all its superiority of men and money, the rebels have not been conquered. I am now here, where I was two years ago. Only think of it! We march to morrow to fight the greatest General of the age, the rebel Robert Lee." At this remark the General was greeted with hisses from some intense loyalists.--He replied, "You may hiss, but he is a great General, although a rebel,"
Gen Lee and Gordon's charge. --It was stated by our army correspondent, a few days since, that when a division gave way at Spotsylvania Court House, Gen Lee waGen Lee was about leading a charge to recover the lost ground, but the men insisted upon his going to the rear. A soldier who was in the fight at that point writes the followed the consequences would be disastrous in the extreme. In this exigency, Gen. Lee rode forward in front of our line, his position being opposite, at the time, tgallant Gordon, spurring his foaming charger to the front, seized the reins of Gen Lee's horse, and turning him around, said, "General, these are Virginians!--These never failed! They never will! will you boys?" Loud cries of "No !" "No !" "Gen Lee to the rear." "Go back!" "Go back!" "Gen Lee to the rear!" hurst from along thGen Lee to the rear!" hurst from along the lines; and as one led the General's horse to the rear, Gen Gordon gave the command, "Forward, Charge!" And with a shout and yell the brigades dashed on, thought bo

Generals Lee and Beauregard and their armies. We are inclined to believe that no city, with one hostile army on one si be their force — the citizens of Richmond feel assured that Lee and Beauregard, with the armies they command, are between th do everything that the most urgent emergency can demand. "Gen Lee knows all about it," or "Gen Beauregard will be sure to se believes that the enemy will ever enter Richmond as long as Lee and Beauregard, with such armies as they command, are interproops have even more confidence, if that be possible, in General Lee than in Gen. Beauregard, and the people have an abiding etreating had not the exhaustion of his ammunition compelled Lee to take that step first; that they did not dare to pursue his campaign, are those which have raised the reputation of Gen. Lee to the highest rank among men of the sword, and left him,while he is its leader, it may thus trusted. As long as Gen. Lee command of a corporate's guard of we for one, at least,
