Fobtbkas Monrob, May 31.?Gen. Grant's
communication with the White House is com
plete, and all works well.
Major Wentx, superintendent of the Govem

enpines, oars, and material for building a rail
road from West Point and the White House to
Richmond, when it may be-required.
Richmond papers of Monday, the 30th, have
been received here. They have chanced their
views with regard to the military ability of
General Grant, t>nd say that they have been
underrating him. They sav that he is smarter
than they had dreamed of, and manifest some
fears in regard to the safety of Gen. Lee, or
rather as to bis success in repelling the Yankee
army.
A messenger from General Grant reports
that on Monday morning our army had reached
Mechanlcsville, with but little opposition.
Sheridan bad rou'ed the enemy's cavalry at all
points, and captured many prisoners.
Heavy canonading was heard during Mon
day in the direction of Mechanlcsville.

Particulars of the Flank Movement?The
Crossing of the Pamunkey?Cavalry Fight
with Fitzhugh Lee.
[Associated Press Correspondence.J
Oli> Chcbch Tavbrn, Va, May 30, via
Washington, .lune 1.?We have again flanked
the enemy. Our forces were withdrawn to the
noi th side of the North Anna river last Thurs
day and Friday. General Sheridan, with Tor
bett's and Gregg's divisions of cavalry, marched
all night, and on Thursday morning the fords
on the Pamunkey were in our possession.
At Dabney's Ferry. Baiter's North Carolina
brigade opposed our advance, and resisted us
when we laid our pontoon bridge. Generals
Custer's and Deems brigades drove the enfmy
off to Hanover Court House, killing many aad
capturing a large number of prisoners.
The 6th corps was soon at our heels. Then
came the '2d, 5th and 9th. Lee was doomed to
disappointment, and his elaborate fortifications
would not serve him. Grant was found on his
right flank, and he must away to Richmond.
On Saturday morning Gregg's division of
cavalry was flred into near Hawes's Shop.
Davies's brigade was in the advance. The
woods seemed alive with the rebels, and soon
began to resound with sharp volleys from our
carbines. In a short time Davies's entire
brigade'was fighting in earnest. Colonel Gregg
was ordered to Daviea's support, and the re
mainder of the division were hotly engaged.
Fitzhugh Lee commanded the rebels in person,
and bis cavalry corps were all fighting, as
sisted by a brigade of mounted fire-eaters from
South Carolina, commanded by Col. Butler.
These men had just arrived from the seaboard,
and they admit the warmth of the reception
our troops gave them.
Conspicuous In the battle were the ith, 13th
and 16th Pennsylvania, the 1st New Jersey,
6th Ohio and 1st Massachusetts regiments. For
a long time these men held Fitzbugh back, and
all onr cavalrymen engaged behaved with
distinguished bravery. We found the rebels
strongly entrenched in this w^ods, with heavy
guns In position, but with every ad vantage
upon their side, they were badly beaten, and
sent flying from the field in great confusion,
leaving their dead and wounded in our hands,
and over 100 prisoners.
Gen. Gregg maintained the ur.equal contest
from noon till two o'clock p. m., when Gen.
Custer came up and formed bis squadrons into
line and charged the enemy s works. Gen.
Gregg's command advanced at the same time
with a cheer. Manv a brave fellow fell in this
daring assault, but the works were onrs and
soon not an armed rebel could be tound for
tfcree miles.
The 13th and 16th Pennsylvania, and the 5th
and 7th Michigan suflerea a heavy loss*. Too
much credit cannot be given to this brigade,
which fought with unprecedented calmness
amid the storm of grape and canister. Our
loss will amount to 360 killed and wounded and
missing. The rebels used grape and canister
plentifully.
Our infantry were all up the same evening,
and long strong lines of fortifications were
erected, so that if Lee should attempt to cross
our path we were prepared. He did not, how
ever, and next morning our newlymade breast
works were abandoned, and the column moved
on toward Richmond.
On Monday, the 3i?th, Major Deoland had two
squadrons of the l?th Pennsylvania cavalry on
picket duty. He held the road leading from
Cold Harbor to Old Church Tavern. About
noon his pickets were driven in, and the enemy
appeared in heavy force. Col. Deems sent the
0th and 6th New York regiments to reinforce
Major Dfoland, when a heavy engagement
ensued. John Auglin. quartermaster of the
17th Pennsylvania, was killed, while fighting
in 'be skirmish line.
Gen Merrittsocn arrived with his brigade,
and a battery of brass Napoleons were trained
on the rebels and opened fire. The6th Pa. was
sent in on the left of the line, and charged the
rebel flank. Here Capt. Seiper was wonnded
and Lieutenant Martin killed. Gen. Custer
next entered and a general charge was ordered,
when the rebels were swept from our sight.
They fled, leaving a large number of their
dead and wounded on the field. Lieutenant
Blunt of the 6ih New York, and Captain Tice
of the 17th Pennsylvania, were wonnded.
Fitzbugh Lee wta bafiled and foiled in bis
efforts to stop onr communication with the
"White House.
Onr advance is now (Bpnday) near Mechan
lcsville. On the left Warren was using his
cannon freely all day. He drove in the rebel
picket lines abont four miles.
Lee's army occupy the trenches abont Mea
dow and Bottom bridges.
To day onr communication with the White
House was opened. The Pamunkey ia full of
transports and gunboata. We expect General
Smith to join ns with his command in two
dajs. General Hancock made one of his
mighty efforts last night abont dark to relieve
Warren who had been slightly pressed during
the afternoon. Onr loss, so far, has been very
trifling. _ ^
The siege of Richmond has began.

A letter from Wendell Phillips was read,
giving support to either Fremont or Butler.
Tbis Administration hod sustained the rebel
lion, and thought more of conciliating its foes
than serving tbe country. It bad misused its
tbiee weapons to put down the war?men,
money and emancipation?and bad just done

tbe State. We shall have to continue the war

and military ability of Gen. Fremont.
Tbe Convention voted to call the new party
??The Radical Democracy." At no time has
the Convention been very large or very Im
pressive, and It adjourned without fulfilling
tbe expectations ot its organizers.
RUINED OR NOT ?
"Gold is 190, and the property of the country
will be destroyed," says Mr. Faintheart.
??Gold is going to 2oo, and I shall be broke,"
says Mr. Weakknees.
"Iam mined! My bank balance is worth
only fifty-five cents on the dollar,'' says Jir
Nevertbink.
Let us stop a moment, gentlemen, and look
into this matter. Facts are better than fears,
and principle is better than prejudice. Yoa
are suffering? yes, suffering, there is no other
word for it?under the delusion that the amoant
of gold and silver coin in tbe sountry is an
equivalent of its wealth. Now, do you know
tbat the highest financial authorities have
never estimated tbis amount at over two hun
dred at d fifty millions, and it is probably much
less, even In time of peace. But suppose we
admit tbat it is three hundred millions; and
now do von know tbat, according to tbe United
States Census of 1&C0, tbe wealth of the coun
try?its real snd personal property?was esti
mated (rather too low than too bigb) at fifteen
thcutand millions. If you will just take your
pencil and cypher out tbe proportion that three
bundred millions in specie bears to fifteen
thousand millions of property, you will dis
cover that it is?what 1 fifty per cent T No
Twenty.five percent.! No!?but exactly !uw
per cent.,?that is, tbe whole amount of specie
in the country never was two par oent, or a
filtieth part of the specie value of the property;
and if, at any one time, the whole property of
tbe country had been forced to sale for the
specie in tbe country, it would not have brought
two cents on the dollar ot its actual specie
value. ,
Specie, or the currency that may stand for it,
is only the convenient and recognized medium
for making an exchange of products. It repre
sents property in the market, property in transit,
but never the fixed property of a nation. Money
is the lubricator. It don't make values; it sim
ply lubricates tbe machinery, and keep* tba
wheels of commerce running smoothly. When
too abundant, the wheels run too fast; and
when scarce, there is too much friction.
And now, Mr. Faintheart, can yon piek a
flaw in our statement! Is it not absolute trothf
But what shall we say to Mr. Weakknees, who
is afraid of bankruptcy, and Mr. Nevertbink,
wbo is only afraid of his bank-balanoe. If
Mr. Weakknees is In debt, it is now easy to get
out. Pay up while money is plenty, and bo
happy.
If a mortgage on your land will be due next
year or any year provide tor it now while yon
are getting high prices for everything yon sell
Bnt Mr. Neverthink, you have-say a bank
balance of *20,000. You are afraid, that gold
is going up or paper going down abont out o?
sight, and you wish to invest this balance in
some productive property. Will yon buy a
bouse worth only 910,000 in specie, and pay for
it $18,000 in currency I Suppose yon wis* to
sell that house alter the resumption of specie
payments, it will bring yon only ?10,000, and
yon will have lost exactly $8,000. Will that
be a shrewd operation ? We think we can
??put you up" to something better?somsthing
by which you can make your bank balance or
currency not only worth its face in gold, bnt m
premium besides. Invest in GovtrUMBC
Bonds. Buy the HMO's. After the warleerer*
they will be worth par in gold and soMtilac
over?and they pay a liberal gold Interest ft mot
tbe beginning. If they are not safs, then no
property is safe. The sams spirit of anarchjr
that would repudiate your property in the na
tional debt would repudiate it in your fctwa.
If the law will not protect you In one descrip
tion of your property, it will net lu another,
and your greatest safety as well as profit is in
maintaining and strengthening the Govern,
ment that maintains and supports tbe law.
VA notary in one of the prOYtBCi&i towns
of France istely forwarded to the Bank o?
France a brick with a lOOOf. note glned on U,
?which has been paid, and will be kept in th#
