At late hour last night advices from the North--contained in the New York Herald of Monday, the 10th inst.--were received in this city. Grant (who seems to be a greater liar than Pops) claims to have won a victory in every fight. On the 9th he telegraphs to Secretary Staunton: "I have advanced my lines twelve miles--Lee is retiring on Richmond." The surrender of Gen. Steele, with 9,000 prisoners and all his artillery and wagons, is published and acknowledged. Banks has been removed from command in Louisiana, and General Canby put in his place. Grant's lying telegrams to Washington had caused gold in New York to fall from 180 to 171.
