route In order tot flank 0 on,, Leo, he being pro
tected on the "-wllJornoei," and, free frost at

Informant itatt is that the theory (when he left

there -was, thit Oen. Lee wai still In his works
about Orange Court Home. Many here

The Impression. Is military circles here la
thst Gen. Lee has gone to Richmond by way of

credit the theory entertained by ibe officers In
Information reeelred here to-day. by the
Government, via Fortran Monroe, itatu that

of 50,000 rebels.
There Is no Information whatever, derived
from any reliable source, that there baa, np to

great armies occptpjlag the relative position!
of thoie of GenenaU Lee and Grant mult have
come In collision before this time.
