Anglo-Rebel View of Affairs?Desperate Straits of the Rebels?Lee Hard Pressed and Worn Out?A hint about Petersburg Hopes of Hood's late Movement. (Correspondence of the London Times.) A FAMIC IN RICHMOND. Richmond, Saturday, Oct. w, 1*61.-1 am happy to report a far more confident feeling in Richmond than existed at the date of my last letter. It cannot be denied that when, upon tne 29'h of September, it was discovered in Richmond that Grant was advancing upon the city with two army corps, (the tenth aud the eighteenth,) and that I>e had only a handful of troops to resist the Federals, a feeling akin to a panic possessed ibis community. It is the only instance of panic which, in some expe rience in Richmond, I can recollect. But the city slowly and sternly recovered itself, and it is nothing less than justice to an unpopular man to say that no one in Richmond displayed such firmness and presence of mind aud de veloped such resources at the moment of 'Jie greatest menace, as Gen. Brang. LKE'S DIFFICULT I KB. In many of my previous letters I have pointed out to jour readers the true d:sad vantages of Lee's position as compared with Grant's. As a general illustration it may be- said thai Lee is on the arc, Grant on the chord, oi a circle: but as this expression does not exactly define the p? sition oi the two armies, whose lines (extend ing each of them over a length of thirty iniles,i do not pursue any unifosm course ot inclina tion, 1 will endeavor, at the rbk of repeating what I have described many times beiore, to make my meaning clearer. Your readers will understand that, in such an attitude as is occu pied by the armies of I^ee and Grant, the army which takes the initiative aud acts on the aggressive has an immense advantage. Lee is like a skillful one armed prize-fighter, who is fighting a big bully with two arms, stronger, taller, more active, and keener-sighted than himself. The most tempting and prompting opportunities offer themselves to him every day. He cannot afford to hazard even twerty lives In a tentative operation. The fact of his great numerical inferiority to his enemv, and that he is tethered down, and forced to keep a large portion of his army before Petersburg, are disadvantageous equivalent to the lass of an arm by a prize-fighter. Grant, on the other hand, has, in the eyes of those who rightly survey the ground, sncli advantages as make it astonishing tbat, in tue four months between the 12th of June, when he crossed the James river, and the present time, he should have made so little use of them. In his center lies the James river, with its dozens of Yankee gunooats and Monitors, cov ering the Federal base of operations, and mak ing it unapproachable by General Lee. It is doubtless with a view of getting still more out of these Monitors, that General Butler is at tempting to cut a canal through Dutch Gap, into which he hopes o tempt the James river. Ills not thought here, I may sa y par paren th-snt, that any advantages will result to But ler's comrades from the canal, even if, con trary to Federal experience at Yicksburg, it proves a success By means of pontoon bridges which connect Bermuda Hundred with Deep Bottom, Grant can throw any number of meu by night or day to the north or south of the James. It is almo-t impossible for Lee to know if Grant's demonstrations, whether they threaten Richmond on the extreme Federal right or the South Side Railroad on the ex treme Federal left, are feints or realities. On the other hand, from the congfiuration ot the ground, it is almost impossible for Lee to cut Grant's extended lines in any vital place. The most tempting place to assail these lines would be somewhere not lar from the spot where Grant's mine was sprung. But the shape of the ground and the position of the forces is such tbat the lines can only be attacked at two or three confined spots, and here naturally Grant has defended himself with triple tiers of fortifications, and keeps always strong bodies of men iu position. But the greatest of all advantages is the following: From the 4th of May up to the present hour Lee's army has been continuously in the trenches, either actually under fire, or at any rate not knowing at what moment it might be attacked by a savage and multitudinous foe. The Confederates have been fighting or on the rack without intermission for more than five months. On the other hand, the Federal Gen eral, who knew from the beginning that Lee was, through the paucity ot his uumb*TS, re stricted to acting on the defensive, bad it in his power at any moment tu give four-fifths of his army an entire rest. There was nothing to prevent Grant's saying on the 1st of August? ?I shall want great efforts from you on the 20th of this month; rest and recruit yourselves until that day." On the contrary, tor 160 days Lee s troops nave known no rest either by CiWe?an*reinember how the work in the trenches told upon our officers and privates In the Crimea; it cannot be wondered that a tar more uninterrupted pressure for more than five mouths should have told fearfully upon the poor Confederates, exposed to one of the fiercest summers ever known in Virginia, scantily fed upon meat?mostly salt meat?and bread, without vegetables, with only occasional cof fee with no other stimulant, and threatened ceaselessly by overwhelming numoers, who have at their command all that a lavish pro fusion ef expenditure and scientific experience of the whole civilized world can contribute. I canrot be blind to the fact, as I meet officers and privates from General Lee's armv, that they are half wora oar, and that, though the spirit fs the same as ever, they urgently need rest. I am in hopes tbat during the coming winter this rest will not be denied to them, aa Lee*? army becomes stronger: bat be that u It id ay, I am convinced that wben tbe true his tory of tbe Confederate campaign o( 1*61 Is written, It will r*< ord a struggle unsurpassed in heroism and in the patience and eelfdeny ing endurance of the troops since the time when blood first spilt upon the earth, and man first lifted his band in anger agates', his brother THI POHSIBLB *VACrAT10W Or r?TER*BV*fi There is one plan by which, at the prioe ot the bricks and mortar of Petersburg, General Lee might cnrtail the existing prolongation of bis lines, might assume a mm h stronger de fensive p sit ion. and considerably Increase the difficulties of his opponent That this plan will be adopted, if occasion requires, Is by ?<? means improbable, but so long as (General L?*? feels himself strong enough to bold and pro tect Petersburg as well es Richmond, he will continue to cling to both. If he gave np th? town ot Petersburg, and tell hack upon the western and higher bar.k ot the Appomv.t>*. holding the Higbts of Pocahontas, which gir dle Petersburg on the west aud north, his strength tor defense would be much greater; but be would have In some measure to give tbe little city up to Its assailant-, much In thu same fashion as Fredericksburg was given up to tbe rjj'-fau while tbe <k>nfederates held Maiye s Higbts. it haso.t n been argued by wise militiry heads that this would be a ju dicious step, but experience has shown to what misery the iuiutbitaotg of towns surren dered to *be enemy at* reduced, and to this misery General Lee wiu not consent thit Petersburg shall be exposed, if caa pre. vent it My own impression is that the bqo.^>ss or failure wbUh may follew Hood's daring move in GeoTgia (of which I spoke In my last l?tter) wiil govern the operations of Grant agv.nst Richmond. The reciproci'y and mntabilKy which have always existed between the viri ons armies of the Federals on the one hand, and ot the Confederates on the other, in the East and West, were never more apparent than at this moment. If the Confederates maintain their present attitude befere Richmond, and continue to hold their enemy at bay until, as is here aeticipated, a great disaster has overtaken Sherman in the West. I do not scruple to say that, in my opinion, Richmond will laugh its assailants to scorn. If, on tbeother hand, Sher man is able to extricate himself from his pres ent critical position, by either beating or oat witting Hood, there will be reason for appre hension about Richmond during the coming winter, the like of which has never existed be fore.
