ational front at Petersburg, and the entire line of entrenchments to be strengthened from the James river on the right to Warren's left beyond the Weldon road. The system of field-works which at this time encircled both Richmond and Petersburg, ane entrenchments widened to more than two miles. On the 1st of September, the national left rested on the Weldon railroad, Warren's skirmishers reaching to the Vaughan and Squirrel level roads; but before long the main works extended to these roads; tno especial consequence. Hancock's check at Ream's station more than balanced, in the public mind, all the advantages of Warren's advance. In the same way Sheridan as yet appeared to have accomplished nothing in the Valley; in fact he had retired, they cross the Potomac, they will expose their rear, and I will pitch into them. To this Grant replied from Petersburg: Warren's corps is now entrenched across the Weldon road; I shall endeavor to stay there, and employ the enemy so actively that h

Warren, who held Meade's right in this movement, soon came upon tforced a little. Later in the afternoon, Parke, moving on Warren's left, towards the Boydtown road, was fiercely attacked, and forced back with heavy loss; but Warren sent a division promptly to his support, and the Ninth corps rallied. For a timr turn. The position carried in the morning was held, and Warren entrenched himself, and extended his right to the Weldon rer army attempted another assault. On the 1st of October, Warren and Gregg were each attacked on the extreme left, but each

Warren accordingly sent Crawford's division across thhe division, went astray. In this emergency, Warren ordered Crawford to halt, while he went back i Meanwhile, the connection between Hancock and Warren had not been made, and between four and five ord of this engagement, and he at once directed Warren to send a division to support the Second corpsonal officer, but finding themselves inside of Warren's lines, they gave themselves up to their prisfield.

r, now at Fort Monroe: Let General Weitzel get off as soon as possible. We don't want the navy to wait an hour. At ten P. M., he reported to the government: General Warren, with a force of twelve thousand infantry, six batteries, and four thousand cavalry, started this morning, with the view of cutting the Weldon railroad as farby the mind of the master-workman. On the same day, taking every contingency into consideration, Grant said to Meade: If the enemy send off two divisions after Warren, what is there to prevent completing the investment of Petersburg with your reserve? The country meanwhile had become uneasy, and the government was even more hed eighteen miles the day before. If you do not get off immediately, you will lose the chance of surprise and weak garrison. Good news, however, came in from Warren. He had completely destroyed the railroad, from the Nottoway river to Hicksford, meeting with only trifling opposition The weather had been bad, and marching and
favorable weather we may have. It is a great pity that our cavalry should not have taken advantage of Hood's and Forrest's forces being on furlough. They could have fed on the enemy, and where they could have collected their own horses. Yet it was to collect and equip this cavalry that Thomas had delayed so long at Nashville, and, after two weeks pursuit of the enemy, he was unwilling to send it out again without another season of equipping and delay. Thomas was in some things not unlike Warren in the Eastern army, who was earnest and capable and accomplished, but unequal to the task assigned him; both had difficulties for which they were not always to blame, which impeded and prevented the action that Grant expected of them; but greater soldiers overcame just such difficulties, and Grant Preferred those who did. Thomas's delay now compelled Grant to change his plans. On the 27th of February, one month after he had first ordered Stoneman's advance, he said to Thomas: Stoneman b
