There was one man who was determined th it the Virginia campaign should not go out in any such innie and impotent conclusion as th Petersburg fiasco. General Grant is not tbc in tu, with such au army as he yet commands, to cry a bn!t or admit a failure. Ignorant of when be is beaten, esteeming nothing eoneluded until everything is tried, and every resource exhau-tod, be was content to await oiner ami neucr oppor tuniliis for a blow at his antagonist.

With this view, the starting of the fleet in broad day down tbe James, und its sudden and secret recall after night, followed by tbu debarkation of the troops- at Deep Bottom, was a well de signed rutt at yimrrc, in keeping wita vieuurai Grant'! favorite system of miliury stratagem!. The line ol advance taken up In the Uto move ment has been twice already, during the present campaign, tbe scene of operations ; but they both rllili red from me in-eieni movement in mat ouu weie but feint. During the operations attending the transfer of the army across tbe James river, tbe 6th Corps was thrown forward on tho roads leading lo Maivcra tun, aim it is ireso in me public recollection thnt three days previous to the last assault on the lines of Petersburg, tbe 2d Corns, accxini uanied hy tbe cavalry, made de monstrations on tbe roads by the north bank of the James, with a view ol calling away detacbmeui! of I.ee s army from t'etersburg, while the real action was made elsewhere. The cresent movement, whether desurned to aim directly at the capture of Ricbmoud by a coup de uimn.or only toseenre such positions as uny further and facilitate subsequent operations pgainst the Rebel capital by a slower process, is at leust a trriuut one. Iadeed, from the distribu tion of lor-'e, it would Appear that tho troops left in the works before Petersburg are reduced 10 a purely subsidiary role; and what they do will depend almost entirely on the developments made by the powerful body operating on the north side of the James. Of the preliminary operations of this fnree, you have already received advices ; they have beu marked by entire success ; anu tnougii no ueci- Five acliou has yet taken place, llw positions eccured are ot hiKh value in view oi luturu op ra tions. Sunday morning mr the 'Jd Corps (lian cock) and the 10th Corps ( birnryl planted nn the north side of tho James at Deep Bottom ; the loth Corns holdlne the left of the line find resting on the went bluff of Deep Bottom ; the 21 Corps on the riiiht of l our Mile Kun.

These positions were not pained without severe loss, but they were worth v. hat they cost, as the points secured admitted au extent-ton ana ueveiopmem ot our nue.
