it is criminal to discourage th people by

fore, make plain etatement of the faois,
which oaa be retarded aa entirely reliable.
The losses of Oeaeral Meade's army up
to last Buaday, and bat little fighting has
I been done since, amounted to about 16,000,
omitting eat of the calculation the number
who straggled to th 1 rear, many of them
to Washington, under pretence of being
hurt. These stragglers hare been sent
back and arrangements are being made to

received reinforcements which more than
replace hid losses. - His army is in much
better condition, bath as to numbers and
spirit, than ever befor . He nnderstands
them, and they understand that the Com
minding General does not intend to mote
northward but southward. The men bays
never felt this before. An indecisive en
gagement has always been the signal for
retreat. When Grant's orders that he in
tended to move Eouthward were read be
fore the regiments of his army, the an
nouncement was received with cheers
Again, thot'gh the wouaded have been
many, yet the best care has been given
them and they are now enjoying all the
blessings th Sanitary and Christian
Commissions can bestow, in addition to
the aid afforded by the Government.
Instead of discouragement we have the
best reasons to feel cheered with the suc
cess ot oar arms thus far. The rebel army
is smaller thsn erer. General Grant has
out maneuvered Lee andwon the confidence
of his troops. His subordinate Generals
evoperate cordially and earnestly and are
s. lnger governed by those selfish mo
tives which have paralysed the efficiency
of the Army of the Potomao so frequently
heretofore. No doubt there will be bitter
fighting, bat we believe that General
Grant will yet prove the conqueror of Lee.
We have reason to be thankful for the
success thus far granted and cannot but
believe that in the end we shall see the
defeat and destruction of Lee, which is
equivalent to tae breaking down of the rebellion.

My dispatch of 10 p. n. yesterday in
formed you of the attack made by the reb
els on the right wing of onr army last
evening, and ihe handsome manner in
wh oh the robe 1m were driven back. It was
made by tbe whole of E well's corps. T e
enemy left Spottsylvania Court House yes
terday at about if. M, made a detour by
the west, crossed the Ny, and about 6
o'clock struck tbe Fredericksburg road on
r rear and right nana, breaking out
within three-quarters of a mile ot the
headquarters of Meade and Grant. The
only troops we had on the ground at the
time were a eouple of regiments of Tyler's
division of heavy artillery, never before
under fire. Tyler soon brought up the re
mainder of his troops, and met th. rebel
attaok, driving the enemy b ok into the
woo .la, where the rebels had formed their
line of battle. Tyler felt rather apprehen
sive at the work before him, considering
the rawness of the troops When onoe
fairly under fire, however, they showed
the utmost bravery. Their loss was quite
heavy more severe than was at first re
ported by me, in my dispatch last night.

The rebels gave way in eon fusion, scat

The honors of the repulse of the rebels
rests exclusively with Tyler's heavy artil

of the Beoood Corps, and Crawford's divis

sent to their support, and formed in ine,
enabling Tyler to withdraw after driving
the enemy several miles and olearing the
miey or the ny.
The confusion of the rebels appears to
have been very great, the major portion of
Rhode's Division scattering m the woods,
350 of them being pioked up in the woods
during the night, and have just been

of the Division feel immensely tickled at
their suocess, although their loss has been
heavily felt, their diminution of num
