MONDAY, MAT 11, 1863.
The rumors that reached ns last evening
from Philadelphia, of the probable capture
of Richmond by Gen. Keyes, caused man
ifestations of the liveliest excitement in
Chicago. Large numbers were disposed
to believe it, from a knowledge of the sit
uation on the Kanscmond, and at Suffolk.
Our doubts will soon be settled.
The report, also, which comes from the
Same source, that Hooker had again re
crossed the Rappahannock, prepared to
give Lee another trial, has an an of truth
about it, and we are disposed to believe the
report. If this be true, it greatly strength
ens the thcoiy which places Richmond in
our possession. Events thicken, and we
may have lively and satisfactory times at
once, although a general Uuencss pervaded
during Thursday and Friday.
VTc publish from the Richmond papers,
liberal extracts from their accounts of the
sweeping gallopade of Stoneznon’s cavalry.
Jt seems to have performed its work admi
rably. The raid created a great panic in
Richmond, and if Stoneman had
hut known the situation of affairs in that
citv, he would have doubtless galloped in,
gobbled up Jeff Davis and his co-conspi
rators, and safely delivered them to the
order of General Dix at Fortress Monroe.
TVc hope the thing has been done notwith
The painful rumor comes that several
well known correspondents of leading
journals arc among the missing on the tug
recently destroyed and sunk while attempt
ing to run the rebel batteries at Vicksburg.
Among given elsewhere, ap
pears the name of our own correspondent,
Hr. A. 11. Bodman. We are happy to
know that this is an error, as far as Hr.
Bodman is concerned. Our last letter from
liim, a few days before the disaster, was
dated ** Ninety miles below Vicksburg.”
Be is now with the advance column of
Gen. Grant. We shall hope that others of
these gentlemen named have been equally
exempt, and that nothing worse has befallen
any of them than to be captured by the
enemy. Only a few days will he required
to settle happily, as we trust, the suspense
of their anxious friends.
The information received early Saturday
of a great victory by Grant at Port Gibson,
Mississippi, is fully confirmed by an official
despatch from that gentleman. Be also

we hope may prove untrue. It be pen
etrated as fur Jis Home, Ga., as stated by
the rebels, he must have been at least CO
miles directly'in the rearofßragg’s army.
Indian troubles seem to be renewed in
Hinnesota. The Sioux are said to have
been engaged in more murders, of thcmjst
revolting character. They should be treat
ed as they certainly deserve. It is pretty
surely established that any mercy or
kindness shown to Indians, is certainly to
be repaid by cruelty to whites, without re
gard to sex or condition.
The arrangements for the great national
Canal Convention to be held in this city on
the 2d of June next, are progressing finely.
From various sources the committee are
satisfied it will be the largest assembly ever
convened at the West It isintended tobe
a mass meeting of all the friends of the
enterprise. The invitations sent by the ■
committee arc merely intended to call the
attention of prominent civilians, literary, j
military, and business men, jurists and i
other leading citizens to Ibe subject, and U
possible to secure their presence and influ

don't let him stay away on that account,

delegates from cities, towns, Boards of
Trade and other public bodies are desirable,
as securing more unity and efficiency of
action. The importance of providing lor
the protection of the vast commerce of the
lakes cannot be over-estimated should
secure the influence and if possible the
presence of every leading citizen in the
loyal States.

Various Reports from General
Hooker’s Army.
[Special Dispatch to the Chicago Tribune,]
Philadelphia, May 10,1881
Last evening’s Washington Star's last edi,
tion contains tho/ollowing:
“ Information has been received at the War
Department, stating that arrangements have
been made for the return of the wounded of
Hooker’s army that fell into the hands of the
enemy. They are now in a bouse near Chan
cellorsville. Medical supplies and attendants
have been sent them, and as soon as the river
is fordable they will be brought to Hooker’s
camp, and will then be forwarded to Wash
ington or to their homes.
Gen. Dix telegraphs from Fortress Monroe
that on an extra of the Richmond Dispatch of
the Cth, found on a prisoner, was a pencil
note, endorsed by a surgeon in one of tbe
hospitals, to Ms wife, stating that the rebel
loss was 18,000 in tbe late battles. From offi
cers just arrived from Richmond wo learn that
on Monday last several members of the Rich
mond City Guard, wMch was composed of
between COO and 700 of the oldest citizens, re
turned to Richmond, reporting that their bat
talion was taken prisoners by Stoueman’a
cavalry, about fifteen miles from the city, on
Sunday night, while on a rcconnoisance to
arccrtflin the cause of the interruption of
travel, and released them on parole, Stone
man being then in no condition to encumber
himself with prisoners.
The Richmond HViij of May Ist has an ex
ultant article on the advance of Hooker
across the river, and goes on to say, “ The
movement, so far as we can judge, appears to
be a feint, wMle the grand attack is to be
made on Lee’s left flank. The forces lately
marched out of Washington to Warrenton
will probably join tbo attacking column.
It has been staled on what Is believed to be
good authority, that Hooker’s army is nu
merically less than onr own. Reinforcements
fiom Washington may make It larger, but
that is of little moment. A prospect ot agen
cral engagement occasions scarcely any ex
citement whatever in the Confedera’e cipital.
Lee and Jackson jfte abundantly able to cope
with Hooker. If only three brigades ol the
enemy had crossed, and the river rise behind
them, endangering their pontoon bridges,
they may be piomptly recalled, and the at
tack postponed for more auspicious weather,
but we shall be painfully disappointed if they
are permitted to return to tlie Stafford shore
without molestation.”
This evening’s Washington Republican, of
the last edition, contains the following:
“ Those who arrived from head-quarters last
night, report the condition of the army to be
as excellent'as its most anxious friends could
Hooker was in fine spirits and perfectly
•well satisfied with his recent achievement.
All 'who have arrived hero from the are

operations in terms of the highest praise.
Those who suppose that wo have thus lar
met with reverse on the Rappahannock', will
have to learn how sadly they arc mistaken.
The President and Hallcck, who visited
Hooker yesterday, have returned, and the
former is said to he agreeably surprised with
the situation. Our killed, and wounded, and
captured has been largely overstated hereto 2 ,

[SpcdalDispatch to the Chicago Tribune/)
Pim unri-mTA, May 10,1663—9 P. 3£.
Saturday evening’s last edition ol the Wash
ington Star contained the following;
We apprehend that those who imagine that
the events of the past week upon the Rappa
hannock have materially damaged the efficien
cy of Gen. Hooker’s army will ere long find
themselves much mistaken. It will not bo
very long before the rebels will find that what
they now claim as a victory, has damaged
them vastly more than it damaged the Union
army of the Potomac, from what will follow
.In this spring campaign in that quarter/
Stoneman on his return from his late bril.
liant cavalry raid re-crossed the Rappahan
nock at Kelly’s Ford, and has rejoined Gen.
Hooker at Falmouth. The distances travers
ed and the amount of work accomplished by
the different columns of Stoncman’s cavalry
on their late mission establishes the fact as
qnllc beyond the most daring and successful
acldevcmenU of the rebel cavalry k dn ring the
1 war.
It Also contains the following letter, dated
New York, May 9th: “We have Just had an
interview with the chief engineer of a Federal
steamer, who was captured with his vessel by
rebels, on the North Carolina coast some
months since, and who was released from
Libby prison, Richmond, on Tuesday last.
He confirms in every respect the reports al
ready received as to the panic occasioned la
Richmond on Sunday and Monday last by the
advance of Stoneman and bis cavalry. The
whole city, he said, was Intensely excited, and
people momentarily expected the advancing
lorcc to enter and occnpy It, which they ad
mitted conld easily have been done. Some of
our cavalry, who were captured on Friday/
and taken to the Libby prison, reported that
they hadpassed entirely through the entrench
ments on the north side of the city, finding
them empty, with neither a gun or soldier
i offering resistance. Two of these captured
t cavalry were captured within the city limits.
‘ The defences In other parts of the city were
manned by old men and boys, upon whom no
sort of dependence was.placcd by the inhabi
The officers of the prison told our inform
ant , as he -was leaving on Tuesday, that among
the passengers on the train of cars captured
by some of Stoncman’s command, ■was Mr.
Memminger, rebel Secretary of Treasury, who
not being known was paroled with the other
passengers. The prison officers frankly ad
mitted that the raid was the most gallant ex
ploit of the war. That they had been fairly
beaten at their own game, and that besides,
our cavalrymen had behaved themselves In a
gentlemanly fashion.
Our informant, while on his way to City
; Point on Tuesday, saw a part of Longstreet’s
forces in retreat, with Federals in pursuit.
He believes that some of Long&trcet’s troops
arc still in the Naosemond region, though
rebel officers declared positively that his ea
tire command had gone to help Lee.
Ae to the condition of affairs in the rebel
capital, he confirms all that has been said by
prisoners previously released. In the com
munity at large, there Is great suffering for
“ant of the necessaries of life, while in Libby
Prison scanty mUons were served ont for
over two weeks before he was released. All
I the meat served to the men was putrid, and
could not be eaten. The prisoners, upon pro
tecting to the commissary officer, were in
formed that it was the best he had, that the
rebels themselves bwd to eat |t, and prisoners
\ must expect nothing else. In the hospital
attached to the prison, however, every effort
Tvns made to furnish wholesome food, and the
sick were treated with all the kindness it was
possible to bestow.
He says that 'the particnlars of the Rich
mond bread riot, already published, do not
average the magnitude of that affair, of part
of which he was a witness from the windows
of hU hospital. Our informant states that the
guard at the Libby Prison frequently ex-
pressed themselves sick of the war
and generally dishcaitcned, and some
openly expressed the hope, after it
was known that Hooker had engaged
Lee’s army, that the Yankees would finish the
thing up this time, so that they might get to
their homes in peace, and this was the feeling
among all the soldiers with whom he con
versed, not only in Richmond, bnt also at Sal
isbury, N. C., where, prior to his removal to
Richmond, he was conflned for some three
months. At Salisbury he was a witness of the
women’s riot, of which we have already had
some report, before proceeding to their at
tack on the storehouses where the heavy con
tractors had lodged their flour and other sup
plies. The women visited the city prison where
two companies, one of North Carolinians,
were stationed, and asked the Commandant,
Capt. Waters, to furnish them a guard to pro
tect them in their operations against the spec
ulators. The Captain informed them that this
■was impossible, and advised them to apply to
the Mayor. This they did not sec fit to do,
but proceeded along to their work, but while
the commandant of the prison declined form
ally to furnish & guard, nearly all the North
Carolina soldiers in the garrison, were that
afternoon granted furloughs, as though pre
pared to help them in an emergency.
[Special Dispatch to the Chicago Tribune.]
Philadelphia, May 10—11 P. M.
The Sunday Transcript of this morning
The afternoon papers of yesterday reported,
by telegraph from Fortress Monroe, the cap
ture of Elchmond.;Gcn. Keyes is said to have
commanded the attack. For some reason or
other the authenticity of the report could not
be ascertained from headquarters, notwith
standing the fact that every means was em
ployed to secure the truth. The intelligence,
however, wc are inclined to credit. In the
first place, wc know that a forward movement
was contemplated byway of the Peninsula as
soon as Stoneman could be heard from. Ho
reported-at the White House on or before the
oth of May.
2d—Wc have Intelligence from Col. Johnson,
of the 10th Penn, regiment, to the effect
that the troops at Fortress Monroe were or
dered to break camp on the morning of the
sixth of May, and were provided with rations
for a long march. This news has also been re
ceived by Col. Johnson's family, residing in this
Bd—Wc have a letter from Fortress Monroe
to this effect:
. Fortress Monroe, May 6tb.
An advance is imminent. Several thousand
troops trom Suffolk reached here yesterday and
to-day They are on transports, and will proceed
up York river to the White House. The gunboats
cleared the way to the Parannky river. Gen.
Stoneman reports Richmond barren almost of
Besides all this, unless the War Department
and the generalissimo at headquarters be mad*
the sure means of taking Richmond, aud the
time for doing it, have not been ignored. We
quote the following in this connection from
the Bulletin of yesterday:
“We Icaru from the editors of the''Phila
delphia Inquher that one of their correspon
dents, who has returned from Washington,
informs them that Hooker recrosscd the Rap-
pahannock in force yesterday, the men'carry
inir eight days’ rations with them. We also
learn from another source that Is vouched for
as reliable, that Gen. Keyes has taken Rich
mond, having advanced upon it by way of
Torktuwn, and that the Federal flag now
floats over the rebel capital. If this intelli
gence is true it proves that Hooker’s falling
back was a ruse, and that the real advance
upon Richmond was to be made while Lee’s
army was on the Rappahannock.
If Sloncman has cut off the communication
of Lee, as is reported, it will bo a work of
Ime for the latter to reach the Rebel capital
in the mean time Hooker is upon his heels.
We have confirmation from a perfectly relia
ble source that Hooker has recrossed the Rap-
Gold lias been falling rapidly to-day, and
tills fact probably lias resulted from the im
portant movements reported above. "Wo have
no quotations of the precious metal since the
reception of this important news. The tele-
graph is silent concerning the intelligence
which is already staitliug Third and Chestnut
streets, and exciting great enthusiasm.
The New York evening papers, the ibst and-
Eiprcu, credit these reports, the Ibtt observ
ing that a disfatchto this effect has reached
that city to-day. Tho Philadelphia Dispatch,
of this morning, contains the following:
Washington, May 9—13 p. m.—On Friday
morning last, Gen. Hooker re-crossed tho Happa
iinnnnck with two corwd'armte. After reconnoi-
tcrio'g the old position held by him at Chanccllors
vllle, be found that the enemy had fallen back,
leaving hundreds of hie wounded behind and his
dead tmbnrlcd.
It docs not credit tho reports in circulation
to the effect that Richmond has been captured
by Gen. Keyes. It publishes a letter from a
special correspondent, as follows:
Washington, May 9.—Yesterday afternoon a
flag of truce was sent across tho Rappahannock by
Geu. Lee, with a letter to Geu. Hooker, In which it
that Lee’s army was deficient in sup
plies, and their communication cut off, so that it
was difficult to reinforce their commissary, render-
ing it necessary that Gen. Hooker should send over
supplies for his wounded soldiers In tho hands of
the Confederates.
Medical and hospital supplies were sent over In
response to this communication, which indicates
plainly the great success of Gen. Stonoman’a cav
alry expedition.
An inspection of the ground npon which, the late
tattle was fought shows tho desperation of tho
rebels and their Immense loss. Largo numbers of
their dead and wounded are upon the field In tho
wilderness, where tho fire took place from {shells
from our batteries. A very large numbed of char
red remains hare been found. Tho Bering of
the poor wretches must hare been terrible.
Nbw York, Huy 9.—The N. T. Ttmev’ cor
respondent who accompanied Stoneman’s
raid, gives reliable particulars thereof! It ap
pears his whole force crossed tho 29th of
April, at Kelly's Ford. Gen. Avcrill moved to
the Orange and Alexandria Railroad, met two
rebel regiments, who after a skirmish retreat

moved to Thompson’s Four Comers.' One
party destroyed a portion of the road between
Gordonsvillo and Charlottcville; another of
four hundred men, under Col. Wyndham,
proceeded to Columbia, on the James river,
and destroyed five locks of the canal, boats,
and five bridges, and a large quantity of com
missary stores. The attempt to destroy the
aqueduct was unsuccessful Several hundred
horses were taken. A party under Capt.-'
Drumond of the sth cavalry reached the river
between Columbia and Kichmond, destroyed
the locks and levees, and set fire to the bridge
across the James river.
Gen. Gregg proceeded to the Fredericks
burg railroad, destroyed Ashland, the depot
building and stock, a train of cars with pro
visions, and the telegraph. He sent a detach
ment to bum the railroad bridge over the
South Anna, but It was strongly guarded by
Infantry, and the parly fell back. Gon. Gregg
relumed to Thompson’s Comers, hut a por
tion of his command, under CoL Kilpatrick,
moved eastward to the Central road, destroyed
the bridge on that road over the South Anna,

Another portion of Gregg’s command, un
der Col. Hasbrcuck Davis of the 12th HI.

ing railroads, telegraphs, and bridge over
Brook river, and railway trains.
Another detachment burned all the broken

New York, May 10,—Thc Herald's Wash-
ington dispatch says our loss in the recent
battles is estimated at 11,000, and the rebel
loss at 18,000. It Is reported that Gen. Lee
sent a flag of truce to Gen. Hooker, asking
supplies for wounded federal soldiers, stating
that his army was deficient therein, and his

and Davis have arrived at Gloucester Point
with 700 cavalry, without the loss of a man.
The General sent a force to White House hist

bridges above that place, and making im
portant captures, including several prisoners.
New York, May o.—The IVbrW’j Wash
ington special states:
When the President and Gen. Halleck re
ceived the intelligence of Hooker’s recrossing
the Rappahannock at ‘3 o’clock on Wednesday,
they immediately proceeded to his headquar
ters at Falmouth, where they spent the night
and most of the day, returning here on Thurs
day afternoon.
The report which found Us way into print
that 40,000 men from Hointzelman were sent
to reinforce Hooker, is untrue; not a single
man was sent.
The most reliable estimates of onr loss la
killed, wounded and prisoners, place it not in
excess of 15,000.
Gen. Averill lias been relieved of bis com
mand, for not keeping open the communica
tion with Stonemnn, and not following up the
orders for his part of the cavalry expedition.
Avenirs friends arc confident that he did
nothing that cannot be fully justified.
The reported loss of a large amount of field
artillery in Hooker’s retreat is untrue. It is
believed that our forces brought away more
than they crossed with.
Hooker had nearly recrossed the Rappahan
nock before be heard the news in the rebel
papers ot the success of Stonemau’s expedi
But few of the wounded are arriving here.
The cause of the delay is unknown.

There has been no excitement in Washing
ton today.
It is believed, in Washington, that the Con
scription act will he immediately enforced,
beginning with the State of New York.
The New York Time*' special says: “Offi
cial continuation has been received
of the capture of the Richmond City
Battalion, which was sent out to discover the
reason for the suspension of intercourse with
Lee. They were captured hy Stoneman,
about fifteen miles from Richmond.
Sixty-five rebel prisoners took the oath of
allegiance, and more than a quarter of the
prisoners will do the same. ”
One hundred and twenty of our wounded
arrived in Washington on Friday.
The New York Tribune's dispatch states;
“The wounded are all to be brought to
Washington, and are arriving rapidly. Eleven
hundred and seventy prisoners, captured at
Chancellorsvillc, have been sent to Fort Del

of allegiance.
Returned prisoners from Richmond state

May 3,1863. — Hon. Gideon Well i - s, Secretary of
the Kory.— Sir; I bare the honor to report
that I got under tray this morning, with the
Lafayette, Carondelct, Mound City and Pitts
burg, and proceeded up to tho forts at Grand
Gulf, for the purpose of attacking them again,
if they had!not been abandoned. The enemy
had left before we got np, blowing up their
ammunition, spiking their large guns, and
burying or taking away the lighter ones. The
armament consisted of thirteen guns in all.
The works are of the most extensive kind,
and would seem to defy the efforts of a much
heavier fleet than the one which silenced
The forts were literally tom to pieces by the
accuracy of our fire. Col. Wade, the com
mandant of the batteries, was killed, also his
chielofstaff. Elevenmenwerckilledthatwe
know of, andonrinformantsaysmanywonud
ed, and that no one was permitted to go inside
the forts after the action, except those belong
ing there.
We had a great fight for these forts, and it is
v Uh great pleasure thatlreport that the navy
holds the door to Vicksburg. Grand Gulf is
the strongest place on the Mississippi. Had
the enemy succeeded in finishing tho fortifica
tions, no fleet could have token them.
I have been all over the works, and found
them as follows r one fort on Point of Rocks,
seventy-five feet high, calculated for six or
seven guns, mounting two seven-inch rifles,
and one eight-inch andfione*, Parrott gun on
wheels, carried off. On the left of this work,
is a triangular work calculated to mount one
heavy gun.
These works are connected with another
fort by a covered way and double rifle-pits
extending one-quarter of a mile, constructed
with much labor, and showing great skill on
the part of the constructor. The third fort
commands tho river in all directions. It
mounted one. splendid Blakely, one hundred
pounder, and eight inch, and two thirty
pounders. The latter were lying bnrsted or
broken on the ground. The gunboats had so
covered up everything with earth that it was
impossible to see at first what was there, with
the exception of the guns that were dismount
ed or broken.
Every gun that fell Into our hands was in
good condition, with a large quantity of am
munition. This is by far the most extensively
built works, with the exception of those at
Vicksburg, I have yet seen, and I am happy
to say that we hold them. lam dismounting
the guns and getting on board the atnmu.nl
Since making the above examination, new 1
forts have been passed nearly finished. They
had no guns, hut were complete of the kind
as regards position, and had heavy field
pieces in them.
