The war news. Passengers from Petersburg inform us that with the exception of some shelling and the usual picket firing, nothing occurred yesterday worthy of notice. Grant and Meade, having sent off their lying bulletins in regard to the engagement at Reams's station, seem to be quietly reflecting upon the effect they will have upon the Northern mind in general and the Chicago Convention in particular. There are, however, rumors of important movements on the part of the enemy, which, though we place little faith in them, it may be proper to notice. In the first place, the report is renewed that the enemy has withdrawn from the Weldon railroad; but that "woft-told tale" has been so frequently exploded that we give it no consideration whatever.--Nevertheless, since the rumor gained some credence in camp, scouts were sent out to ascertain the enemy's position; but the result of their observations has not yet transpired. We venture the prediction, however, that they found th

The safeguard says he was over the field, and it was covered with the enemy's dead and wounded. He has seen a great many fields, but never saw such a sight — very few of our dead, nearly all were of the enemy. All our wounded are brought off, but our dead are unburied. "I have instructed Gregg to make an effort to send a party to the field and bury our dead. "[Signed] G. G. Meade, Major-General. "U. S. Grant, Lieutenant-General."

I think I do not over-rate the loss of the enemy in the last two weeks at ten thousand, killed and wounded. "We have lost heavily, but ours has been mostly captured when the enemy gained a temporary a

Stanton, it seems, telegraphs to Dix, that "on Thursday, the 25th, General Hancock, who was at Reams's station, was attacked severed times during the day, bu and disasters. As these lies were concocted to answer a very important purpose, all the generals of any standing seemed to consider it a duty to contribute. Meade telegraphs that the field is covered with dead rebels, (our whole loss, we now learn, very little exceeded five hundred, though put down seven hundred at first,) aver before during the war." It is a pity that neither the blank officer nor the rebel officer is named. Had they been, we might have felt disposed to believe that Meade actually heard this; as it is, we believe no more of it than he does himself; that is to say, not a word of it. No rebel officer made any such statement to any bla
