The lato attack on James's Island wasj
very near settling- the business for this
city. Had Gen. Penl,am had 500 fresh
soldiers ho would have carried that bat
tery, and then tho way had been easy.
It is regarded as a wonderful thiug that
they did not carry it. They fought like
tigers, and nothing but the timely arrival
of a Louisiana battalion saved the South
Carolina chivalry from biting tho dust.
There is great glorification among tint
multitude at the late battle in whicli Mc
Clellan was driven back but among th
knowing ones thero ii an evident cha
grin that the attack, desperate as it was,
failed of it's object iu great part. Th
loss was tremendous on this side. The;
papers do not and will not give tho ag
gregate, but reports -, enough of parts of
the forces engaged have been made to
show a loss of nearly li fly per cent. Ib
is sale to say that :)5,00 wero killed and
wounded on this side.
The present population of Kichmond,
in wounded and sick soldiers, is quite
equal to its ordinary population in time
of peace. My own impression is that it
the National Government does anything;
like its duty at this juncture, the Cap
ital of tho Confederate States will fall,
and tho rebellion is quashed. But every
exertion under heaven will bo made W
hold it to the last gasp. A present at
tack is wht is demanded.
This town might have been taken by a
proper attack any time: tho past year.
Three Monitors would do it. You havo
no idea of the secret anxiety in the heart
of Union men here that the attack should!
be hastened. Yet, should tho city ba
taken, there would be no outbursts of joy,
but, there would be a great inward rejoicing.

Virginia, and you will hear one prolong

that there is a very large number of Un

In your last letter you say that the
correspondents of the Press censure Gen.
Grant for not being in tho battle of Iuka.
The proper place for the Commanding
General is at the point most accessible to
all his divisions, which in that case was at
Durnsville the battle not becoming gen
eral because of the lltght of the enemy,
he was not therefore personally engaged.
The movements were as well planned and
as well executed as the very hilly coun
try, dense growth, bad roads, and small
force (all we could spare) would permit,
witli a long line, to protect this military
district standing out like a peninsula in
Ihe bay of Secessia.
At his headquarters at Jackson, Gen.
Grant was well informed, and rf iuforced
Corinth at the right time, and directed a
column on the rebel rear and flank, to
the great rtlirf of Corinth and injury to
the i-m-my, as the result has demonstrated.
