.A correspondent of the Carolinian writes a?
follows, Oadeir date of Danville, Va.* April ?:
Grant commenced his grand movement as
early aa Tuesday, the 28th. He fort oarliaes
at different localities along their entire, length.
Hence Gen. Lee jr as compelled so to distribute
his forces ss to be prepared to repel the princi?
pal aseanlt with thc least possible delay. .
On tue Tuesday in question, the enemy ad?
vanced on the South aide to within one mil* of*
the Boykin Plank Road; threw up entrench?
ments and built a large fort in. the' vicinity of
the Lewis House. eDurin-g the night, his skir?
mishers pushed forward a few hundred yards
further. Wednesday, we fought thia oolam*
'with varying suceass, and night dt*ooped eu a
druwar battle. At Hatcher's Rori, dd ring tho
afternoon, ? there was also heavy Sighting, ia
which the enemy lost heavily. Thursday,
heavy skirmishing and movement of troops.
Friday, the 'efforts- were resumed, shd with
greater determination. The Federal cavalry
swept around our works'towards the railroads,
but-were mot by Gen. Fitz Tee and repulsed.
The Yankee infantry, upwards of 40,000 strong,
were massed near Burgess* Mi ll, and here battle
was joined in -earnest. The enemy gained no
substantial advantage, and goffered 'greatly. .Wo
captared~betw*en -five and six hundred prison?
ers. On -Saturday and Sunday, the fighting
was fearful. Our entrenchm. nts. in many
place?, .were held bv a thin line only, hut this
stood nord y to its post throughout- Saturday.
On "Sunday, however, Giant resumed his old
vooation of "Butcber." i&Finding that he could
make little er no impression iii the ordinary
way. he massed his troops several columns
deep against a portion ot the line on the right,
and thea driving-them relentlessly forward,
succeeded at last, after frightful sacrifice of life,
in obtaining possession of a section of tb?
works, lt waa not in the power ef aov men,
however brave, to have withstood these des?
perate assaults without greater support.. Lsag
strest had not yet come up, although hurrying
from another part of the field. Meanwhile, th?
Federals were rolling forward and recoding
like wave?-those behind impelling those be?
fore-until*a lodgment was effected, the worki
mounted, a flanking position and enfilade fir?
secured, and lb? battle substantially-vron.
. Our grape and canister mowed the en ?ni j
down by hundreds, our rifles told with onerr
lng precision, and the gronud Va? literally
carpeted with the dead and wounded; bal
