[From the London Times May *4 ]
Onr recent anticipations of an Important
earn p sign in Virginia nave been confirmed by
I arcoession of tbc most obstinate and sin*
gainary battles wbleb have signalised even
this age of war. From the 0th jo tbe toth of
the present month two great arm lee were in
wssiiTlj enraged in conflicts so fierce as to
eurpass in carnage all former encounters on
fee same ground, and yet so Indecisive ^ to
render it difficult to say at the prese*' moment
to which side the balance of s**.ocesa Inclines.
It was not until tbe moving of Friday, tbe
5th, tbat Lee accepted tbe battle to which
Grant was pressing him Then tbe Federal
Mtnmander advanced and fell upon the entire
fiont of tbe Confederate line with an onslaught
a* straight, as impetuous, and aa stubborn as
that of Tilly on the Swedes at Letpelc. Like
Tilly, however, be was repulsed with dread
ful loss, nor could he by repeated assaults suc
ceed in changing tbe fortunes of the day. So
manifest, Indeed, had been hie failure tbat in
tbe afternoon Lee decerned the opportunity
of assumtr.j; the aggressive himself, and ad
vanced tn his tnrn upon thefederals, but with
out any tnaterlal success till night was closing
in, when he turned the right of UranUs army
and drove it bark anon the center with a loss of
nearly 7,oo?i men Thnt tbe advantage at this i
time rested rather with the Confederates than
wltb the Federals Is not denied, but, neverthe
less, on tbe night of the tith I^oe retired once
more and took up apesitjon at >Spottsylvania
Court Hnuee. To tbtr. point Grant lost not an
hour In following him, and, after some sharp
skirmi&hing on Saterday, be again assailed the
Confederates with unmitigated fnry on Son
day morning. AH through that Sabbath-day,
all '.hrcuith Menday, and apparently all
through Tuesday, tbe battle raged with little
intermission bat what tbe darkness of night
ar<d physical exhaustion Imposed upon the
c am bat ante. Still, however, there was no de
'Aatv* result. When ttre last dispatches left
Abe field Ijee still retained his position, and
Was said to have been "reinforced, while the
"aggregate losses of the Federals np to the eve
ning of Tuesday were reckoned, in kilted,
wounded and missing, at forty thousand. At
this crttieal point weare left in suspense to
wait in suspense for fresh intelligence. Nevor
did American mall bring more important in
formation than may be looked for by the next
arrival On tbe side of the North, it must be
owned that tbe expectations entertained of
Grant's prowess -have received more confir
mation than has usually attended thesanguine
calculHtions of the Federals. If he has not
achieved absolute success, be has bid for it
more desperately and approached It more
nearly than any of his predecessors in com
mand. He has fully justified his reputation
lor dogged and unconquerable tenacity.
After once breafring up from kit camp he hat
march'd straight on, incetsantly closing with his
adversary) always offering battle, never declining
if, undismayed by losses, undeterred by the most
imminent danger. For the first time in tbe his
tory of the war, a great battle has been followed
by an immediate pursuit, bringing on another
battle rqnallv obstinate and bloody. Grant,
though >lightly worsted in the actions of the
6th, relumed to quit his bold upon the enemy,
or to plead any of the obvious excuses for sus
pending the operations of the campaign. It
wat this stubbornness of purpose which gai ned
him his success at Vicksburg and his favor
with tbe Northern people. They never thonght
blm a mili'ary genius, bnt they believed him to
be a most determined mm?a man who would
bring ? very thing to tbe immediate issue of hard
fighting, and who might eitber beat or be beat
en. bnt wbo would never be hesitating or inac
tive This estimate of his character he has fullv
justified. He bas fought unceasingly, and has
clung like a bull-dog to bis work. Nor can it
be add<>d that be has fought altogether in vain;
lor be has advanced as be proposed to ad vance,
and is actually a lew miles further on the road
to Richmond. On tbe other hand, it now ap -
pears beyond all doubt that tbe successive re
tuemenis of the confederate commander were
but so many jndicions and preconcerted opera
tions of tbe campaign. The whole road to
.Richmond, be it remembered, it a series of
positions which Lave long been studied and
strengthened by the Confederates, terminating
in a capital fortified by all the defences which
modern art could devise, through a period of
tbree years. Lee, If be falls back, is only fall
ing biik from one strong post to another, till
be finds himself in tbe strongest post of all.
Grant, it he falls back ever so little, gives up
ibe g irof, while if he persists iu advancing he
discovers harder work than ever before him at
th-> end ol each day's marcb, and sepirates
himseli from his supplies in the same prop or
tion. Already, we are told, be has found bin
communications intercepted by tbe Confeder
ate v nvalry, and been compelled to change the
b*a? ot his supplies, and it is intlmat. J, indeed,
that the action of the loth was not sought by
bim, and tbat be bad intended to postpone it
for a few hours, until bis supphe* bad come
up. Undoubtedly (Irant is in a more difficnlt
fciiuation tban Lee, for it be falls back, which,
it he cannot dislodge bis adversary, he must
dc, it will be under disadvantages; and If be
advances, either by force or upon the retire
ment of tbe Confederates, it will be under dis
advantag" still. Hut h> it invincibly obttinate,
tit has vneontrcAled romm^nd, h> has > xacted the
*nr<r rced support of the Oovernment, and he hit
teen the Southern general retire bej'rre him. He
will, perhaps, ren^w his attack upon Lee, but
ii be ever leaches Richmond with an elfective
army he will have achieved a miracle ot mili
tary success.
