Spring and Summer Millinery-. The
special attention of the ladies is invited to
the advertisement of Mr. A. P. Ware with
the above caption. Ills establishment at
Ne. 258 South High street is well supplied
with a fine stock of goods, to which con
etant accessions are being made of the latest
styles. Mr. Ware is well k nown as a dealer
in millinery, and,, his reputation entitles
him to the patronage of ladies in the city
and country.
Merit will not qo unrewarded, though
oftentimes justice may seem to be tardy.
In the case of Dr. D. II. Seelye, who dis
covered the Liquid Catarrh Remedy which
has cured thousands who had almost given
up hope of cure, it has been thus; butdur
ing the last year in the unprecedented
amount of sales to inhabitants of nearly
every clime, do the people acknowledge the
value of bis long study and great learn
ln?.
Mills, Schermerhorn & Co. We call
the special attention of our readers to the
advertisement of Messrs. Mills, Schermer
horn & Co., and to their large, varied and
splendid stock of dry goods in the Union
Block at 183 South High street. The
reputation this house has acquired for sell'
ing the best goods at the lowest rates, and
its constantly increasing custom, both from
city and country, furnish good evidence Of
the skill and taste ol the proprietors in the
selection of goods, and their disposition to
dispose of them tor barely allvlng profit
Those, who wish to purchase dry goods oj-
any kind or quality, are recommended to
call on Messrs. Mills, Schermerhorn & Co.
Complimentary Benefit to Mr. How
ard. We published yesterday morning a
correspondence betweeu some of our prom
inent citizens, patrons of the drama, and
Mr. J. C. Howard, of the Opera House com
pany, tendering htm a complimentary ben
efit. The time fixed for the benefit is to
morrow (Thursday) night. Mr. Howard
will, on that occasion, produce a new and
original drama written by himself. With
the aid of Manager Ellslcr and his com
pany, we have no doubt the new piece will
have an excellent rendition.
Thiscompltmentof a benefit to Mr. How
ard speaks more lor the popular apprecia
tion of his merits as an actor than anything
we could say. We need only add that we
join heartily with the gentlemen tendering
the benefit and with the other numerous
friends of Mr. Howard In regarding him as
an artist of decided ability, and in wishing
that he may realize satisfactory results from
his benefit on Thursday night, and from
future exertions in his professional career.
' Low Priced Sugars. Happening in our
rounds yesterday to step into the large
grocery establishment of Messrs. Brooks &
Stearns, corner of High and Friend streets,
we were surprised at the low prices for
which they are now selling the best quality
of sugars. These prices are a great reduc
tion from very recent rates. The same may
be said of numerous other articles in the
tame establishment. , We advise our read
ers to call and see for themselves.
QHonorably DisciuRaED. The follow
ing Ohio officers have been, honorably dis

' Opera House. Mr. Evelyn Evans made
his first appearance, since his recent Indis
position, last night as Admiral Loridano, in
the "Greek Slave." His reappearance on
the stage was hailed by the audience with
eheers- His part was happily rendered, as
was that of Mrs. Ellsler, as the Greek Slave,
and that of Mr. Lee as Malapieri, In the
tame play." '
Of the "People's Lawyer" or Its rendi
tion, it is hardly necessary to speak. Every
one knows that with Mr. Lewis in It, it
could not be dull. But it Is just to say that
the, subordinate characters were generally
faithfully portrayed. Those who were at
the Opera House last night enjoyed a splen
did entertainment "

Peter Martin's Hot Air Furnaces.
Peter Martin's Hot Air Furnaces. Commendations from Mr. E. D. Kingsley,
Superintendent of the Columbus
Public Schools, and from H. Barney,
Superintendent of the Circleville
Union Schools.
COLUMBUS, February 15th, 1865.
To whom this may Concern:
Peter Martin, of Cincinnati, has placed
his Patent Improved Hot Air Furnaces
in our High School and District School No.
The Furnaces in District No. 5 have
been in use two years; those in the High
School during this winter. So far they
have 'given entire satisfaction. For effi
ciency in warmiug, quality of heat, econo
my of fuel, and promptness of action, they
deserve special commcudation. I cheer
fully recommend Mr. Martin's Furnaces to
any who may desire an excellent mode of
E. D. KINGSLEY,
Supt. Public Schools of Columbus.
Circlevillk, Feb. 16th, 18C5.
The Warm Air Furnace invented and
manufactured by Mr. Peter Martin, of Cin
cinnati, was put into the Union school
building of this city in November last, and
thus far it has given entire satisfaction. It
surpasses other furnaces in the following
important particulars: It has, compara
tively, a greater heating surface; produces
a larger volume of heat with agiven amount
of fuel; the condition of the air in respect
to temperature, moisture and purity, is su
perior; the admission of cold air, the sup
ply of warm air for the several rooms, and
the fires, are more easily regulated. ;
To avoid soorching and decomposing the
air, as is done, to some extent, by other hot
air furnaces, and to secure to each room an
abundant supply of pure, fresh air, warmed
to a pleasant temperature, as well as to pro
tect the wrought-iron air-flues - from
the effects of the fire, it is essential that
the warm air-flues leading to the school
rooms, should be at least twelve
inches in diameter. This will insure the
influx of such a large and rapid current of
fresh air as to prevent the wrought-iron
flues from being overheated, and thus secure
the durability of the furnace, and keep the
warm air in a healthful condition. It is
deemed proper to State in this connection,
that our Board of Education was induced
to order Mr. Martin's Furnace, because two
other furnaces had been previously used in
our school edifice without satisfactory re
sults, and because, after a careful examina
tion of a large number ot furnaces and
other modes of warming school houses and
other public edifices, not only in Western,
but also In Eastern cities, Mr. Margin's was
believed to be decidedly the best. '

April 2. Tho most important victory
nie Army oi tne rotomao Das ever
gained iu Virginia was won to-day; and
the outer line of works which we have been
trying in vain for months to overcome has
at last yielded to our victorious arms, and
the greater portion of this army are to
night within a mile and a half ot the city,
on the southwest side. The struggle made
by the enemy to retain these works has
been of the most desperate character, and
for the success obtained to-day, we are in-
ueoceti not only to tlie strategy exercised
oy uie commanuer8 out to tne overwneim
ing numbers and braverv of the trooDs that
did the work.
Ihe orders for an attack on the line east
and south of Petersburg bv the Oth and
l)th corps, were carried out Dunctuallv at
daylight, the artillery having been ham
mering away the greater part of the night
aiong ine enure line neia Dy the above
corps. Such a furious cannonade has very
seldom been heard during the war, not even
surpassed by that which was heard on the
occasion of tho mine explosion in front of

In the action were the 2d and 3d divisions.
and Col. Sam llarrman's brigade of the 15th
division.
The charze was made In front of Forts
Hale and ltiee, on the Jerusalem road, and
were so far successful that, by 8 A. M., we
were in possession of three fortifications.

treated ana irom whence tney threw a
most destructive lire upon our men.
causing them to retire from the
north end, when the rebels made a dash
thinking to recover it entire! v, but the trims
in the right wlug, as well as In the center,
had been manned and shotted and the as
sailants were driven back. From this time
till late in the afternoon the struggle con
tinued, the enemy using every ellort to re
cover the fort, while our men were as de
termined to retain possession of it. About
noon the chances seemed that we should
lose it. But soon after the Provisional
Brigade, under Gen. Coliss, and the engi
neer brigade, under Gen. Benhain, with
Gen. Hamlin's brigade of the Gth corps
came on the ground, and by their timely ar
rival saved the gallant men in the fort from
capture and caused the enemy to retire.
I He scene on the ground and around the
fort was of the most terrible and fearful
character. At dark the position of the con
testants was the same as during the day.
1 Gen. Wilcox with part of Tils division
made an attack in front of Fort McGilvery,
near the Appomatox, and took part of the
line, but was soon after ordered to retire to
his former position, owing to lack of sup
ports. The loss of the Oth corps will reach
from 800 to 1000 killed, wounded and pris
oners, among whom are Gen. Potter, com-
uiauuiiig tuo 2u uivision, wno is Dacuy
wounded in the eroin. but not fatally. It is
thought Col. Mitchell, and Major Balton,
31st Maine are severly wounded. Colonel
Gregg and Lieut. Col. Winslow, 179th N.
Y- wounded: Mai. Gross 25th Penn- lost a
leg. - Lieut. Alexander of the same regi
ment was killed. This corns has taken 14
guns, about 200 prisoners and 2 battle flags.
The latter were taken by the 218th Pa. The
6th corps struck the enemy's line in front
of Fort Welch, near the celebrated lead
works, ana carried them with verv slisht
loss. They at once pushed for the South
Side road, which they reached about 9
o'clock and in a very short time, several
miles oi it were torn up and destroyed.
They then moved on down towards Pe
tersburg, driving the rebels before them
across, toward the town and into their inner
line close to the city. They took a large
number ot prisoners, about 2,000, and some
20 guns. . .

Nkwbern, March 27. It is reported here
that Gen. Sherman took North a proposi
tion from the rebels to unite with the South
in a foreign war, provided a general pardon
is granted to all tho insurgents together
with return ot property tho South accept
ing tne constitutional amendment abolish-
ng slavery.
Thousands of Sherman's sick have recov
ered and joined the army, as detachments'
oi new recruits.
The enemy in auite larso numbers desert
and come Into our lines daily. People from
the interior also come iu to take the oath of
alegiance, faster than they can be accommo
dated. The citizens of Goldsboro crave our troops
a warm welcome. The same feeling exists
throughout the Btate. On raising the flag
over the Lower Hall in Goldboro the citizens
endeavored to out do the soldiers in their
enthusiasm.
Great distress prevails in Wilmington
owing to the large influx of refugees.

Account of Saturday adn Sunday's
Fighting.
Of Saturday's
operations tho Tribune's correspondent
says :
At 7 A. M. the 5th corps was again in mo
tion, passing to the left along White Oak
road to Join Sheridan, executing the diffi
cult movement of marching by the Hank in
tne presence oi tne enemy, withdrawing
divisions in the rear of each other, and
inarching them off successively from right
to left; the left division (Crawford's), exe
cuting the same movement by brigade.
While this was taking place the 2d corps
moved toward White Oak road, by a more
direct route, and established connection
with the right of the Cth corps. Meanwhile
Sheridan, with four cavalry divisions, pass
ing arounu tueieuoi tne wnoie army, went
through Dinwiddle CourtHouse and toward
the South Side railroad, with his usual rap
idty. The force which drove Crawford and
Ayres across Gravelly run, however, at
once turned their attention to him. moving
rapidly to tiie right, and, after a desperate
conflict, he also was forced back within a
mile of Dinwiddie Court House, but being
joined by Warren's corps he atfain took the
offensive, and, in turn drove the enemy,
capturing a position known as Five
Forks, together with about 4,000 pris
oners and several batteries ot artillery.
He was then joined by Miles' division, 2d
corps, and pushed westward for the South
Side railroad. This he soon reached and
took position upon It. The 5th corps, sup
porting cavalry, also took ,15 guns and
about 2,000 prisoners, enabling Sheridan to
drive back the force which, on Friday af
ternoon, checked his advance near Dinwid
die Court House. On receiving this news
it was determined to give the enemy no
time to send troops to their right, and at
once a simultaneous attack was ordered all
along the lines, by the 9th, 6th, 21th and 2d
corps. An order was given about 9 o'clock
at night, and in less than an hour a furious
assault began on the rebel entrenchments
in front ot their several commands, result
in the enemy being driven in confusion
from their first into their second lite of
works, with the loss of over 5,000 prison
ers, several forts and about 20 pieces of ar
tillery. The 2d corps, engaged all day in
their front, and in spite of the terrible fire
of musketry poured into their ranks be
hind their works, succeeded in maintaining
their new line, several hundred yards iu
advance of tho line they occupied in the
morning. The 21th corps occupied the
centre of our line, its left connecting with
the 2d at Hatcher's run and its rlirht solns
t) the left ot the Cth corps.
Ueiore daylight Sunday morning the
rebels made a furious assault on the position
of this line, driving a portion of the 3d
brigade from their breastworks and capturj
lug about 100. Their success, however, diu
not lu3t long. The 20th Pennsylvania, by a
gallant charge, driving them back beyond
their first battle line. A sharp fire was
kept up all day by both sides. Owinsr to a
hot tire by our sharpshooters the enemy wi S
unable to work his guns, consequently very
few casualties occurred to our side from
shells. Our batteries, however, rained in
cessant fire into their intrenchments. There
was little fighting in front of the 6th corps
until night, when considerable shelling oc
curred. Quiet also reigned in front ot the
9th corps. So matters stood until 10 o'clock,
when the 2d corps was started into sharper
attention by a few shots on their front,
soon swelling into battling volleys. The
oattenesjoineu in tne ciamor. Firing spread
rapidly to the front of the 24th corps and
on to the 5th, there away to the right till it
reached the Oth about 11 o'clock, at which
time the fighting was at its height. Pres
ently cheers broke out on the front of the
2d as the fire slackened. By 2:30 the Are
had nearly ceased along the whole line, but
at 4 in the morning it suddenly broke out
again, nearer than ever to the 2d corps,
while sharp artillery practice was heard far
to the right and again the crash of battle
sped from end to end of the line. At 6
o'clock the battle was raging fiercely but
our colors are advancing all along the line.
The World's correspondent rcounts the
attack on the Petersburg defences. It was
to take plaoj t riday morning at 4 o'clock,
but the failure on our left was doubtless the
cause of the postponement. The plan of
this last place of action was this : General
Grant, on recelptof news of Sheridan's vic
tory at Five Forks, immediately dispatched
couriers in conjunction with the telegraph
leading to his headquarters to each of the
corps commanders, desiring them, without
loss of time, to open with both artillery and
infantry upon the works of Petersburg.
Sheridan, it will be remembered, attained
his succes by 7 o'clock Saturday night.
At 9 o'clock Graut hearing it, and before 10
o'clock our col urns had passed the picket
line and were on their way to the rebel en
trenchments. Parke on the right, Wright
in the centre and Ord on the left, marched
almost at the same instant. The Cth corps
(Wright's) were arranged in double line of
battle, and, without ceremony, they threw
themselves en masse into the ditch and up
the parapet. The contest was short,
though terrible. Hand to hand conflicts
occurred, the deadly bayonet lung , the im
pulsive ana ntiui crashes oi musket and re
volver, the crossing of swords, tho volley
now and then, when our troops poured in
fl alingfiraldown the inside of the parapet,
the yells and groans, the galloping of cour
iers to and fro from end to end oi the lines.
In places the ditches were heaped with the
living and dying combatants, tumbled to
gether promiscuously, but every now and
then northern cheers told how the conflict
was going. On each side of the Cth corps
the scene was the same. Opposite Fort
Hell the rebels held a fort called Fort neav
en, at which place they fought like Satan's
legions.
No attack on the inner line has been made
as yet, as the position is a strong one and
will be defended to the last or evacnated.
During the night the 4th corps, holding the
line north ot Uatcners run ana south ot the
Duncan road, connecting with the 6th corps
on the right, and the 2d on the left, ad
vanced at daylight and took the works in
their front, with slight loss. Over 1,000
prisoners were captured here by Foster's
and Turney's division, under Gibbons.
They were supported by the colored divis
ions of the 25th corps, the latter did not
get into action. The 2d corps, who held tho
line from the run, and over a mile west
of it, delayed advancing until Sheri
dan, with tho 6th corps got within
supporting distance on the extreme
left, when the entire , line moved
forward, carrying the works almost with
out opposition. The enemy was found to
have fallen bock from this part of the line,
owing to the 6th corps cutting them off.
they having reached the South Side railroad
early in the forenoon, and were busy tear
ing it up. inis, oi course, cut the reoei
armv in two and the 2d division thus get
ting between the 6th and 2d corps at once
started across the South Side road towards
the Appomattox, hoping to be able to ford
It and thus to capture tnem, out It
appears they ran against bneriaan and
ting on a ooia appearance maae a snow
to fight. News to this effect reaching
headquarters, two divisions of the 2d corps
were at onco sent to flank, and, if possible,
capture the entire command. Our losses
during the day can't be given, but it is be
lieved 2000 will cover them. Many officers
are among the number, whose names, how
ever, are not obtained to-night. Our cap
tures will be about ww prisoners and 38
guns, including those taken by Sheridan
yesterday. The loss of the enemy in killed

prisoners.

The Battle at Five Forks.
New Yokk, April 4. The World has
graphic account ot Sheridan's battle of
i ive Forks, which was the turning point in
the great conflict, and which, under Sheri
dan's generalship, win take rank with anv
thing on record. Itappears thatGrant was
not satisneu with tne day's business on Frl
day, and placed Sheridan in supreme coin
niand of the whole of Warren's corps and
all the cavalry. Sheridan at once maneuver
ed with his cavalry, dismounting a portion
in front of the rebels and gradually pressed
them back into their works, under the most
desperate and terrible lighting of the war.
vi)iie this was being done, and done slow
ly by order, Shcridau set about forming the
Infantry, showing the SMne genius in in
fantry tactics that he has in cavalry. It
was a marvel to see so paltry a force of
cavalry press back and hold In check 16,000
rebel infantry, still they did it, and In such
a manner as to completely inoe the move
ment of our infantry. They were driven
back, step by step, into their works ; then
the signal was given and the infantry closed
on the works like a huge barn door. The
rebels saw their situatiou but did not
appear to appreciate how desperate were
their circumstances. They fell back to the
left only to see four close lines of battle
waiting to drive them across the field. At
the right, horsemen charged thein in their
vain attempt to fight out, and in their rear,
foot and cavalry began to assemble. Slant
lire, cross-fire and dlrcct-flre, by file and
battery, rolled perpetually, cutting down
their bravest officers and strewing the field
with bleeding men. Thereupon artillery
was turned upon them. At last bodies of
cavalry mounted their parapet and charged
down upon them slashing and tramping
them into confusion. They had no com
mander to lead them out of the toil into
which they had fallen. A few more volleys,
a new charge, the cpmmand to die or sur
render, anu 5,000 muskets were thrown
upon the ground, and 5,000 men are Sheri
dan's prisoners.
Those who escaped were pursued by the
fiery Custar, and they were pressed far lut
the desolate forest.
From Fortress Monroe.
Fortress Monroe, April 3. via Balti
more, April 4. The mail steamer Dictator
arrived from City Point at 4 o'clock this
evening, and brings additional particulars
of the great struggle.
Petersburg was occupied by our own
troops at 3 o'clock Monday morning. Our
gunboats were all well up the James river
and it was thought that a tight had taken
place with the rebel Ironclads.- Large fires
were seen up James river last night towards
tort Darling, and in the vicinity of other
rebel works, from which it was inferred Lee
was abandoning his works and retreating
from his long established lines. Ah im
mense number of prisoners have been cap
tured, variously estimated at 15,000 tol8,000.
Prisoners are continually arriving at City
Point and it was estimated there were
15,000 thero this morning. When the Dic
tator left a salute was being fired by all war
vessels at the Point.
The steamer Comstock arrived here to
day with a large number of Union prison
ers, including Gen. McLaughlin and men
of his brigade, captured with him by the
rebels In the assault on Fort Steadman.
Such was the haste of the rebels In hurry
ing tho Union prisoners through Richmond
on Sunday that In many cases many were
not even patrolled. The returned prison
ers say that In coming through Richmond
on Sunday, they saw manifest indications
of the evacuation of the city. The streets
were auvo witn people ot all classes and
ages, manifesting intense excitement. All
the Union prisoners in Libby prison were
ordered to be exchanged by tho rebel au
thorities and were hurried through the city
of Richmond towards the Variua landing
in all possible haste.
Fortress Monroe, April 2. The steam
ers, Decatur, Delaware and Jersey Blue ar
rived here this morning from Newbern, N.
C, with an aggregate of 800 rebel prisoners
and about 200 refugees. The condition of
these refugees is of the most distressing na
ture, many of them being encumbered with
numerous children, barefooted, ragged and
hair starved. They were taken charge of
by the Provost Marshal and will be sent
korth in a few days. The news they bring
is unimportant.
Washington, April 4. On Sunday night.
before evacuating Richmond, the rebels
blew up their forts and rams in the James
river.
A dispatch from Goldsboro, N. C dated
April 1, says : A detachment from General
Reilly's command was sent out on a recon
noissance yesterday beyond Little river.

erable force, but drove them back some
three miles, returning without any loss.
The rebel force is north of Tar river. .
New York, April 4. The Herald's Wash
ington special says a dispatch dated Spotts
wood House, Richmond, 1:30 P. M, Monday,
says: liut little property wa3 destroyed by
the Are, which was confined mainly to the
tobacco warehouses. The reception of the
Union troops was enthusiastic) beyond all
expectation, proving that there were a large
number or Unionists in the city. Many
Union flags were displayed.
lesterday was the anniversary of Grant's

cessful. He encountered a superior force ol
rebels and drove them, but returned with
out prosecuting the object of the expedi
tion, to end ail tne rebel Government
property in Newport, includinffthe shot and
shell factory. He burned the extensive salt
works on the coast. The entire Federal
loss Is forty. Seven deserters report that
the enemy sf loss exceeded four hundred.
Gen. Warren Relieved of his Command.
mand.
New York, April 4. The Herald corres
pondent says Gen. Warren was relieved of
his command of the 5th corps on Saturday,
by order of General Sheridan. The cause
was generally understood to be tardiness,
or refusal to obey orders by charging rebel
lines. General Warren and staff passed to
the rear, stopping but a few moments at
Grant' headquarters. .
Steamer Sunk.
St. Louis, April 4. The steamer Ber-
trand, bound for Fort Benton. Upper Mis

tance ot three miles, and also began throw
ing bridges over the river, the former one
having been destroyed. The work now in
progress will establish the complete line ten
miles from City Toint to Petersburg. On
ly a few hours are required to establish tele
graph communication with all points. Very
little property has been destroyed by the
rebels in Petersburg, who, during Sunday
night made a hasty retreat. It was sup
posed there tnac xee was endeavoring to
escape byway of the Danville railroadand
a portion of the army was following in that
direction. No particulars had been received

Proclamation by the Secretary of
State.
Washington, April 4. The following
was proclaimed by tho Secretary of State
to-day:
To all whom these presents may concern:
Whereas, for some time past eyil dis
posed persons have crossed the borders of
the United States nnd entered their ports
by sea from countries, where they are tol
erated; those committed capital felonies
against the property and life of American
citizens, as well in the cities as In the rural
districts of the country,
Now, therefore, in the name and by the
authority of the President of the United
States, I do hereby make known that a re
ward of $1,000 will be paid at this depart
ment for the capture of each of such offen
ders, upon his conviction by a civil or mil
itary tribunal, to whomsoever shall arrest
and deliver such offenders Into tlie custody
of the civil or military authorities of the
United States.
HA like reward will be paid upon the same
terms for the capture of any such persons so
entering the United States whom shall be
committed subsequently to the publication
of tliis notice. A reward of $500 will be
paid upon conviction for the arrest of such
persons who shall have aided and abetted
officers of the class before named without
the authority of the United States.
Given under mtr Imrwl mul tha .ool r.f H.n.
Department of State at Washington, this
WM. H. SEWARD,
Secretary of State.
Newbern, April 1. It was the 14th corps
that was first engaged in the bp'ttle of Ben
tonvllle on Sunday instead of the 20th corps
as first reported. Company L, of the 1st
North Carolina mounted rangers, com
manded by Capt. Graham and Lieut Ed
wards, which has captured 1C0 rebels with
in the pan few months, has gone out on a
scout, and will doubtless bring in the re
mainder of Bragg's men.
The supply trains on the Wilmington and
Weldon railroad are now running Irom
Wilmington to Goldsboro, loaded withsup
plies for Sherman's army. Trains are also
running night and day over the road from
this point to Goldsboro ; and steamers are
running up the Neuse river to Kinston, lor
the same purpose. It will not take long to
supply the wants of Sherman's men, who
are anxious to push forward.
The Treasury Agency at the place, from
the commencement of business, July 1st,
1804, to January 1st I860, has realized over
$300,000 from abandoned plantations, com
mercial Intercourse, and sales of captured
property. Nearly $250,000 have been paid
by lessees and employers for agricul
tural labor, food and clothing, which have
been furnished for some 6,000 colored peo
pleeniployed on the abandoned plantations,
leased by the Agent. Alter the pavment
oi an tne expenses wnicn are less than ten
per cent, of various draft drawn on the
Agency by the Treasury Department at
Washington, there was in New York a
balance in January of nearly $25,000.
Expected Movement Against
Augusta.
New York, March 4. The Commercial
says it is reasonable to suppose that we may
hear soon of a movement against Augusta
up the Savannah river. Immediately after
Sherman's departure a line of couriers was
established between Augusta and Columbia,
and by this means communication was re
established between Richmond and the
western portion of the Confederacy. The
enemy also doubtless opened communica-
liuii uu ucuy across me country, i ne occu
pation of Augusta is necessary to complete
the isolation of Western Georgia, Alabama
anu jussissippi.
Washington, April 4. There is good au
thority for the statement that the rebel
Erisoners taken by this army number 20,000.
Hiring Sunday night the rebels blew up
buildings in and around Petersburg. At
City Point the belief is general that Lee is
retreating upon the Danville road and that
Sheridan is upon his flanks. A messenger
from Goldsboro brings news that Johnston
has swung around to a new position be
tween Goldsboro and Weldou. Sherman
will take care of him.
New York, April 4. The Commercial's
special says it is regarded by military men
as Impossible for Lee to escape with any
considerable portion of his force, and it is
believed Weitzel has pushed down with his
negro corps on the railroad line from
Richmond to Burkesville junction, to co
operate with Grant in heading off Lee.
Philadelphia, April 4. Jay Cooke's sales
of 7-30's to-day are $2,075,000. The largest
Western subscription was $20,000 from
Pittsburg, and the largest Eastern, $110,
000 from New York. There was also 1,500
individual subscridtion.
Washington, April 4. Correspondence
from City Point states that Lee has divided
the remnant oi his army and is retreating
in two small columns.
Our prisoners at noon yesterday exceeded
25000. The rebel destruction of property
on their retreat beggars all description.
Stragglers and deserters are even in excess
of what was anticipated.
Evansville, Ind., April 4. At the city
election yesterday, the whole Union ticket
was elected without opposition.
Philadeqp hia, April 4. A special to the
Bulletin says that Major General Russell,
of the 2oth corps, was killed in the late battle.
