Elections. We admire the tenacious ardor and vitality of the passion to vote and be voted for. Scarcely has a huge cavalry raid swept over the country, and apparently stripped it of every living thing, before there spring up in its track, green and imperishable, political candidates and their supporters, who pitch into each other with a patriotism and vim that, if combined in a physical demonstration against the enemy, would sweep him from the face of the earth. Whatever else the raids of Sheridan & Co. destroy, they cannot extinguish the inevitable sparring for legislative honors. Lee and Grant, Johnston and Sherman, must be content to stand aside from public attention for the present, till the great battle of the Legislative Ins and Outs is decided. We suggest to the enemy that the coolness and system with which our people are now going about this work do not look much like the deportment of men who are in daily expectation of being subjugated.

Kantz was sent round to this section of country to cover the retreat of Sheridan's raiders, who, we learn upon good authority, were too fagged and jaded by their long and wearisome excursion to take care of themselves. Their track, from Fluvanna to the York river, is thickly strewn with the carcasses of their worn-out horses. We had apprehended that Sheridan would soon be at work on our lines of communication south of Richmond; but from what we learn of the condition of his command, men and beasts, some considerable time must elapse before it will again be fit for field operations. On Monday evening, between 2 and 3 o'clock, our batteries on the Jerusalem plankroad, near Petersburg, opened upon the Yankee observatory recently erected on the Avery House, about a mile distant. The Yankees replied to our fire,
