rches, fatigues, and privations of every kind, could certainly assume in their turn an aggressive role, which is the easiest played in a war of this description. They therefore ventured to organize three great expeditions, one of which, that of Stoneman in Virginia, has already been described; the other two, under Colonels Grierson and Streight, ended very differently. While Stoneman was operating at the eastern extremity of the line which separated the belligerents, Streight was to pierce thiStoneman was operating at the eastern extremity of the line which separated the belligerents, Streight was to pierce this line toward its centre, and Grierson at the west near the Mississippi. Since the commencement of the year the latter had had nothing to do but guard the neighborhood of Memphis and the Corinth railway. He had only met the enemy on one occasion, at Covington on the 10th of March, when he had dispersed a band of Confederates four hundred strong. On the 17th of April he left La Grange, near Grand Junction, and took the field with his own regiment, the Sixth Illinois, together with the Seventh

May, and ten thousand in June; the fatigues of a short but distressing campaign and the first heats of summer increased the number of sick; desertions had not been entirely stopped; and the recruiting of regiments already organized was almost at a standstill. The active infantry force that Hooker had at his disposal was thus reduced to eighty thousand men. The artillery was thenceforth too numerous, and out of proportion to the above figures. The cavalry, on the other hand, worn out by Stoneman's raid, needed a few weeks' rest to recuperate. The authorities at Washington might have reinforced the Army of the Potomac by discontinuing or reducing the number of useless posts and garrisons, but the most sad experience had failed to induce them to abandon this system of scattering the troops. At the very moment when all the Confederate forces were leaving the coast to join Johnston in the West or Lee in Virginia, a whole army corps was left at Port Royal, one division at New Berne, t

uthwestern Virginia. We have, through private letters and other trustworthy sources, positive intelligence relative to Thomas's movements and force in East Tennessee.--There is little doubt that he is preparing a grand "On-to-Richmond" movement through Southwestern Virginia. His column, which is already in motion, consists of not less than twenty thousand men,--the latest advices state, seventeen thousand infantry and five thousand cavalry,--the greater part of which are at Bull's gap, ten miles east of Morristown and eighteen miles below Greenville. He is advancing leisurely towards Bristol, rebuilding, as he advances, the East Tennessee railroad.--His objective point is believed to be Lynchburg. A report reached here yesterday, by telegraph, that Gillem, at the head of the Fourth Yankee army corps, was moving down upon Bristol, and that Stoneman, with a heavy cavalry force, had started from Knoxville on a raid into North Carolina, with Salisbury as his objective point.
