FROM GRANT'S ARMY.
FROM GRANT'S ARMY. The Reconnaissance--The Fall
Campaign not Ended.
The correspondent of tho Philadel
phia Press with Grant's army writes
as follows, under date of Oct. 30 :
The accounts of the recent engage
ment on tho South Side road, which
have been received, are somewhat di
verse, and to a certain extent irrecon
cilable. It is scarcely to be expected
that the case could bo otherwise, for
the alfair was of such an impromptu
fashion, nnd was so quickly over, (last?
ing less than an hour,) that there wris
hardly time for it to assume any special
character, or to shape itself in any com
binations requiring particular notice or
description. It was, as I have hereto
fore indicated, nothing more than a
general rcconnoissaiico in force, end
ing in a heavy skirmish. There were
three gallant charges made by the Sec
ond Corps, which managed to extricate
itself from the toils ot a wary enemy,
and the mazes of an almost impassable
wilderness, in a manner to reflect fresh
brilliancy upon the fame .of its com
mander, General Hancock. There was
obstinate and impetuous gallantry, too,
evinced by the Fifth and Ninth Corps,
which, however, bore a less conspicu
ous part in tho affair. There was a
vcr3 high degree of skill displayed In
the rapidity with which so compara
tively largo a forco was transferred
safely to anew base of operations, and
retired to its original position upon the
same day. leyond these features there
was nothing to distinguish this rccou-noissance-peculiarly
from others, and
but little field for fine descriptive wri
ting.. Yes, there was one exceptional
fact which deserves to be rcmarkod,
and that was the steadiness with which
the new troops, some of whom had
smelt gunpowder for tho first time,
stood up to their duty. So much for
the assertion so common with the oppo
sition press, that the recent levies have
only added to the army a set of bounty -lumpers,
deserters and substitutes, who
cannot be forced to fight, but will in
Although a mere rcconnoisstinco, It
was optional with General Grant to sny
whether or not the recent encounter
should be prolonged to a general en
gagement. Whatever the general opin
ion may be, those who know best are
of opinion that ho did wiaely in iluci
ding the question negatively. Upon
what special grounds this opinion i.-i
based, it is, of course, contraband to
speculate in print. Sulllce it to say
that the movement just recorded is not
the final, but the Initial one of the fall
campaign, if there be any correctness
in the popular cntiinato of Grant's per
sonal cucrgy and genius for " hammer
ing away." What of Uutlor? What
of the iron-clad flotilla on the James?
These may be respectively designated
the right and center of the forces ope
rating against Richmond, and their of
fensive powers nro shortly to be put
to tho test, doubtless in connection
with the Army of the Potomac, or left

A b. avo and eodlly Cantaiu, in one of

we were tukinc liuu to the hosintal. Ho
was shot through both thighs: with a rirln

recover, V line iyini on the huld ho sut
furod intense avuny from thirst. Ho sup
ported his head upon his baud, and the rain
from heaven was nouiiiiK unon him. In a
little while a pool of witter formod under his
elbow, and ho thought if he only could get to
that puildlo he illicit quonoh his thirst. Ho
tried to gat in a position to suck op a mouth
ful of muddy witter, but ho was unable to
reach within a foot oi it. 8id ho, "I never
felt so much the lonsofany earthly b!ov-ing."

out clear and bonutiful above thodurkfiold,
and I began to think oi that great God,
who had givon his sn to die -a daath of
agony for mo, and that he was up there
up above the scene of suffering, and
above these glorious stars; and I felt that
was piling homo to meet bira and praise

STEPHEN'S REPLY TO SHERMAN.
[From the Richmond Dispatch, Oct. 31. ]
The lei tor from Vice Prou'dotit Stephens.
to William King, the mcpannger from General
Sherman, with propositions to negotiate
is published. The invitation was for the
Vieo President in meet the Yankee in
Atlanta. Afte' expressing his anxiety to
promote tho termination o) this fratricidal
war." Mr. Stephens says:
But. in the present instanco, tho entire
absence of any pewer on my partto enter
into such negotiations, and tho like ansenca
of any such power on his part so far as
appears from bis incssnBe, necessarily
precludes my aeeeptanee of the invitation
thus tendered. In communicating this to
General Sherman, you may also sny to him
that if he is of opinion that there is any
prospect ot our aarecins ution terms ot ail
hutment, to be submitted to the action of
our respective Governments, even though he
has no power to net in nuvanco in tlio
premises, and will make this known to me
in some formal and authoritative manner
(being so desirous for peace himself, as you
reproscnt him to have expressed hiuwilf),!
would tniM cheerfully and willingly, with
consont of our authorities, accede to his
request thus manifested, and enter, with all
tho earnestness of my nnture, upon tho
rosponi-iUo and arduous thk of restoring
peace and hnrmony to tho country upon
principle of honor, right and justice to nil
parlies. This does not seem to me to be at all
impnssib'e, if truth and reason should be
permitted to have their full sway. Yours,
Alf.xandkr II. Stephens.

ivti'ly ero.-srd the river, and was wijll on its
way to liridiroport or Stevenson. Tliisstnter
ment is evidently premature, as wo know
that the iiriiiy was still in Cherokee county
mi ilio ISth. We have no idea, however,
t'nat it remnined ut lilno l'nnd any length il
timo. Gen. Hood could iirri. nlforJ to tarry
there. Tlie Hiiccecs of Lis plan re(itired
mot ion. It therefore can do no possible in
jury, whon cloven dayji have clapi-od sime
hn eneiitiipi'd nt 15lue I'ond, to announce tho
fact that lit) was ut that plneo on tho IHth.
Wo have no do-iht cro now the Vaukens

N i d iitht we will have some hard fichtinsr
in Teiin8tee. The enemy will not yield that
grct g'annry without a severe struggle.
At yet we have uncouutered but little op
portion. 13 very msvonu.'iit has been a stic
Ci.s. That this will continue iininierrnH-
: u.lly would, jiurliaps, he too muoh to hope ;
hut that the enterprise will becrownou with
s uMeH wo do not permit ourselves in tho
least to question, The uiovo, we know, is a
hnld ono. AM military movements to ha
successful must be bold aud out of tint old
bfak'ii track. There is no doulit that Sher
man has boon taken by complete sm prise.
The move was not counted among the pro
babilities in his "calculations," at which the
Yankee nation are proverbially poworful.
HOOD BELIEVED TO BE ALREADY IN TENNESSEE.
[From the Richmond Examiner, Oct. 31.]
The war has been transferred from Geor
gia to Alabama. The Yankoes themselves
ooii HS this. They soy Sherman, on the
7th, was at Gaylesville, ehasing Hood, who
was in lull retreat to Gadsden. We may
easily detect the abaurdity ef this election
eering Yankee dispatch, when wo look on
tlio map and sco that Uaylesviiio is in I ho
Northern part of (Jherekto county, on the
Chatooga, an iiltluent of tho Coota, and that
Gadsdeu is iu the Southwestern part of the
samo county, just whore the railroad from
Jacksonville to Gunter'f Landing on the
lennessee river oros-os tbe Uootw. . A tew
days ago tho Southorn papers stated thai
iieauregard was at Jacksonville with a con
siderable body of re enioicementsfor Hood.
The two (oroes doubtless effeotod a junction
four or five days ago, aud asGunter s Land
ing is only aome thirty miles from Jackson
ville it ia wore than probable that Hood and
Besurogard are now in Tennessee.
We doubt whet her cihorman a whole army
or any large portion ot it, is at Gaylcsvillo.
It ia uiueb more likely that the main body
is U'oving down the Tennessee river in trrii
porta aa rapidly aa they can be steamed ,;nd
that ouly m corps of observation, oonsistin
principally of cavalry, ia kept ia' Hood's
Courtonay James, sergeant in company I,
3d Ohio Cavalry, and sou of G. P. It. James,
tbeominent ICnglish novelist, diet! recently
