The weather was cold, aud the wind was blowing almost a hurricane. This prevented the eteameis making their usual time, which is alout Ll bout a. On arriving at City Point we again fouud tran sportation in wait ; and here was the ino-it novel nnd interesting part of our whole journey. It was a ride on Grant's famous Railroad, which is constructed without any re-aid to ravines, knols, ie., the track I e- ing laid upou the b 11 r face ef the ground as it is found; and iu many places lie grades ate so steep that it is really tiresome to walk up them. After riding about 1,3 miles, we arrived at a little edition called" Meade's Station, near the Weldon railroad.. Hire our iiiigMie stopped and camped for (lie night in a pine glove near While l'opir ('hutch. .Next morning we marched tojoin ihe rest of the Corps which was aloui two miles from the Station, tiny having left the Valley uearly a week previous. We now oc cupy the "-amp of tic 2d corps. We found good comfortable stockaded tents, laid out iu company streets, behind strong f ,1 ,1 ;aiion e Our brigade is but a few rods to iv b it of Fort Conakry, one of the strongc ; and most formidable works ou the line. . Our pickets are posted about forly rods in advance of this line of works, nnd alout 80 rods from tho Johnnies picket.-. We can plainly see their foitilicatiotis aul camps, and hear their drums and fifes at morn nnd night. They are very peaceable in the d y time, but at night picket firing is the pro gramme. Rebel dccrtcrs in small squads are daily coming in an 1 giving themselves up. One bundled, including nine officers, came into our lines last night. They tell a very inter esting story of the supples which their ar my las to be content with. T. ir daily ra tions Consist of pound corn meal, uneook' ed, and a btna.l allowance of pickled pork. They report great dissatisfaction arising from lalse stories daily read to them by their of ficers to prop up their failing courage. They 1 nsider their cause a complete failure, and think that it is impossible to-bold out longer than this w'nter The cheering news we are daily receiving fnmi Sherman and Thomas give us the same opinion.
