AUGUSTA, April 18.-The Chatta
nooga Gazefte of the 4th says that the
first dispatch of Federal movements *as
received on the 30th March, from 4rants
headquarters. Lee made seven demon.
strations to find the position of the Yan
kee forces, and recoiled every time. On
the 31st Lincoln telegnphdd from City
Point that there was much fighting'that
day. In the forenoon the Confederate
troops were successful, in the afternoon
the Yankees occupied their former posi.
tion. Grant moved one mile towards
Richmond. On April 1, Gen. Stead
man telegraphed that after hard fighting,
Gens. Hoyden and Warren drove the
Confederates back, near Baranow and
occupied their five works.
Grant's dispatches say that Sheridan
carried everything before him, and cap.
tured three brigades of infantry, a wagon
train and several- batteries, of artillery,
and several thousand prisoners. On
April 2 Lincoln telegraphs Stanton,
from City Point that Grant had cap
tured 12000 prisoners and 'fifty pieces of
artillery. Foster's division captured an
important fort, with its entire garrison.
Everything was carried on the left and
Pet.ergburg closely invested.
Petersburg was-occupied by the Yan
kees on Sundsy night. In the fight
before the city the Yankees say they
captured over 3000 prisoners. On
April 3, Grant dispatched that he car
ried everything before him. and after -
three days hard, fighting had occupied
Richmond on Mqnday morning at 8
o'clock. Theirq w"g great-rejoicing, on
the 5th ir.st., (at the North) over a.
Washington' dispatch which said that
the war is over, the programme of Grant
anticipates all the possible movements
