THE WAR NEWS.
Yesterday was the mott iuict day

iatt week. The news caino in
well
from the Trans-.Mississippi Depart

theatro of tho war, but tho public
m:nd is so deeply absorbed in the cri
sis of Virginia, that it failed to excite
more than a passing interest. Tho
great demand was lor news Irom Ltei
and Hcauretia d, upon whom now
resta the hope ot the country, but no
i .. i .
thing could be heard. Scarcely a ru
uior circulated, and nothing could be!
obtained until night, when we were
able to ga-.bir up tho following eum

Fur live days ho f night his way, then

ricksburg, which point, isolated by
his movements from the enemy's body
eiCiMyfeil into Itis hands, and thus
gave him the lino of tiio Futonine up

The old tritcif m ou Hookor's Chan
cellorjviiio opciatioiiS is equally ap
plicable to Gen. Grant's Movement.
Strategically oiionsive, it was, never
theless, tactically defensive. That
is to Bay, it was iu its very nature ag
gressive; yet wo waited for the ene
my to attack us. It may be that this
was not Gen. Grant's intention; but if
it wiw not, thcu his movement by the
left flank was not wholly successful.
It va3 while our army was hastening
along in this extended liuo, that Lee
strack it near tho middle, and the
battles ol Thursday and Friday, in
the Wildeiness ensued.
Tho fairest statement we can make
of those battle t is, that they were 6tic
cesses, but not victories. Lee attack

On iiu person ofona of tho Yankees

twisted iu the buiton holo of his jac

his fall, while death was putting film,
in his eyes. It commenced: "J,Joliu

finds me, send this to Sarah Wilhei
