From General Lee's Army.

[from our own Correspondent.]
Army of Northern Virginia;
April 1st, 1864.
Our pickets report that Grant was out on the front, attended by an immense staff, on Wednesday, engaged in the delightful task of reconnoitering our lines.

Governor Vance has addressed all the troops of this army, finishing with Lane's brigade to-day.--His speeches have been well received, and will doubtless be productive of immense good.

The weather is still quite unsettled, and we can scarcely expect Grant, I think, under two or three weeks; but that he will come I entertain no doubt. But our boys will be ready for him, and I doubt not will give him a warm reception.

A number of promotions and changes have recently been made in the artillery arm of the service. I will chronicle a few. Lieut. Cols. Carter and H. P. Jones have been made full Colonels.--Colonel C. will remain with this army, and will have charge of the artillery of Rodes's and Johnson's divisions. Colonel Jones will go either to Petersburg or North Carolina. Majors Braxton; Pegram, Poague, Hardaway, and McIntosh have been promoted to Lieutenant Colonelcies, and Captains Watson, Channing, Page, Miller, Magraw, Moorman, and Chew have been promoted to Majorities. Major Buckham, of Stuart's Horse Artillery, has been transferred to the army of Gen. Johnston.

A board, consisting of Colonel H. P. Jones, Lieutenant Colonels Braxtan and Pegrum, are now sitting at Orange Court House, examining into the efficiency of certain officers, among others a number of Quartermasters are ordered before them.

Brigadier General W. H. F. Lee, son of General R. E. Lee, is now on a to General Stuart headquarters. I suppose that he will again be assigned to duty in this army.

I am told that an immense amount of money has been funded by the various Quartermasters in the army. X.
