on. I must confess myself at a loss what to say in the premises. Gen. Johnston is stern, severe and reticent. One can only draw conclusions from his actions, and those may prove to be only precautionary and strategic. Possibly before another sunshines, Sherman will have the Chattahoochee at his back, and the fierce tide of battle long sought for will be waging in bloody fury. It is not less probable that Gen. Johnston will still continue his retreat to some other point. It is not less probable that he has received orders from Richmond to evacuate Atlanta after emptying it of valuables, and decline a general engagement until events elsewhere shall be decided; and among all these suppositions it is useless to anticipate. One can only hope; and this I do abundantly, with the knowledge that our army is still undemoralized, still confident and defiant, and satisfied, in their ignorance of the future, that Gen. Johnston will in due time work out his own plan and secure success.
ng safe conduct for Messrs Clay, Holcombe, and himself, to Washington. His letter is dated at the "Clifton House," Canada. Greeley, understanding they were the bearers of propositions from Richmond looking to peace, tendered a safe conduct from the President. They replied that they were not accredited with such propositions, but in the confidential employ of the Government, and felt authorized to declare that if the circumstances disclosed in the correspondence be communicated to Richmond, they or other gentlemen would be invested with full powers. Greeley answers that the state of facts being materially different from that supposed to exist by the President, it was advisable for him to communicate by telegraph with him and obtain further instructions. The following was accordingly received from Lincoln: Executive Mansion, Washington, July 18, 1864. To Whom it May Concern: Any proposition which embraces the restoration of peace, the integrity of the wh
duct of the President of the United States has been tendered us, we regret to state under some misapprehension of facts. We have not been accredited to him from Richmond as the bearers of propositions looking to the establishment of peace. We are, however, in the confidential employment of our Government, and are entirely familiar with its wishes and opinions on that subject; and we feel authorized to declare that, if the circumstances disclosed in this correspondence were communicated to Richmond we would be at once invested with the authority to which your letter refers; or other gentlemen, clothed with full powers, would be immediately sent to Washington with the view of hastening a consummation so much to be desired, and terminating at the earliest possible moment the calamities of the war. We respectfully solicit, through your intervention, a safe conduct to Washington, and thence, by any route which may be designated, through your lines to Richmond. We would be gratified if Mr
The War News. Active operations having been commenced on both the north and the south sides of James, it might be supposed that Richmond in more danger than at any previous period of the campaign; but the truth is, the people have no whatever, exhibit no sign of excitement are as calm and confident in regard to the as they have ever been in the past. Grant has herculean task before him, and all his strate will be of no avail. Operations below Richmond. A private letter from a member of the Third Howitzers, dated the 18th, gives a resume of the operations of the past week. It says: "We have had hot times on this line for the last five or six days. The ball opened on Saturday our 10 inch mortars, which stirred the Yankees considerably. On Sunday morning they in our skirmishers in front of our battery, which resulted in quite a brisk fight. Our forces had abandon four siege howitzers that had been placed on the outer lines to annoy the enemy's gunboat; but t
It is not long since the New York Times published an article setting forth that the capture of Richmond, then confidently anticipated by the Northern public, would have no effect in "crushing the rebellion," unless it was also accompanied by the capture of General Lee's army. Grant, it was alleged, saw this with great distinctness, and hence had spread his nets in such a way that the army, which is the real capital of the rebellion, should not escape. It need not be said that even Richmond has not succumbed to Grant, much less the army, which not only bids him defiance, but is numerically as strong as when Grant first crossed the Rapidan. It is the truth enunciated by the Times; i. e., that the fall of this Confederate stronghold or that does not affect the vital energies of our defence so long as the great armies of the Confederacy remain intact. It is this that should engage the serious reflection of the people of the United States. They are just now in a state of absurd
to the fact that very little confidence was felt in the continuance of the prevailing high price of gold. In another column it says: Two well-known operators in the gold room failed to respond to their contracts to-day, and the demand for gold created by these failures assisted the efforts of the "bulls" in some degree. Rumors, too, of unfavorable news from Grant's army were said to be current in Baltimore. After 2 o'clock, however, a report was circulated to the effect that Richmond was captured. Gold fell soon afterwards from 217 to 212, but recovered again. The stock market at the second board was also excited by the report, although little credit was attached to it. No rumor of importance, however improbable, fails to exercise at least a momentary effect in Wall street. John Van Buren for M'Clellan. On the evening of Friday, the 7th instant, Continental Hall, Philadelphia, was crowded to overflowing to listen to an address from the Hon. John Van Buren, o

The deposits at bank have increased about four millions since the previous weekly statement. The Herald says: The gold market opened at an advance upon the closing quotation of Saturday, but afterwards gave way. A rumor to the effect that Grant had taken possession of the Southside road assisted the market in its downward tendency somewhat. During the afternoon, speculation turned from the bull to the bear side rather unusually, and another rumor was circulated to the effect that Richmond was being evacuated. The depression in the gold market deterred speculators for a rise on the stock exchange from operating, and induced some to realize, which gave the market a downward tendency, and the feeling on the street at the close was the reverse of buoyant. Miscellaneous. General Augur, on Monday, commenced the enforcement of his regulations to prevent firing by the guerrillas on trains running on the Manassas Gap road by placing in conspicuous positions on the cars pro
y considered the danger over, and Mrs. Foote destroyed her papers, fearing to fall into the hands of some of our soldiers. On Sunday they drove to Mr. Hammel's, near the Occoquan, where they hoped to be able to get across the Potomac, upon the Maryland shore. Arrangements had been effected, and, under the pilotage of some slaves, they were to cross the river on Tuesday, but two rebel cavalrymen rode up to the house and arrested both. It appears their movement had been reported to Richmond by the rebel ferrymen; and on Sunday last Jeff. Davis telegraphed to the rebel provost-marshal at Fredericksburg to overtake them and bring both back to Richmond. Finding it impossible to get Mrs. Foote back that night, she was paroled to remain there until sent for, and they set out with Mr. Foote for Richmond on Wednesday morning. They went towards Fredericksburg, from whence he would be sent by rail to Richmond, probably reaching there last Thursday or Thursday night. Information r
eatly exaggerated, the whole of his casualties not exceeding eight thousand. They also say that he has plenty of artillery. For a week or more it has been whispered here, in unofficial circles, that General Hood has been superseded by General Dick Taylor. There was a report yesterday that the Confederate Senate has passed a resolution asking the President to reinstate General Joseph E. Johnston in command of the Army of Tennessee. The Hon. H. S. Foote, of Tennessee, having, in obedience to orders from Richmond, been released from custody by the provost-marshal of Fredericksburg, arrived in the city yesterday evening. He will appear in his seat in the House of Representatives to-day. The peace rumors that lately filled the air seem to have taken unto themselves wings and flown away. The bill for the re-organization of companies, battalions and regiments — a measure of much interest to the army — will engage the attention of the Senate at half-past 12 o'clock to-da
