The latest Irom the exciting theatre of war
In Virginia is to noon ot Monday, when the
-armies were skirmishing and engaged In on
artillery dud at Spotsylvania. Gener.il
Grant's own brief dispatch gives a good ac
-count of the morale of the army, but sol
dierlike, does not seek to brighten the grave
aspect of .the struggle. He will press torward
and pour in his troops unhesitatingly. He has
* done ao. The losses are very heavy. There
arc acres of our wounded at Fredericksburg.
The army of the Potomac is still pressing
npon Lee, Grant will succeed, or in his
failure the army will be destroyed.
From Gen. Butler the news is direct, up
to yesterday, and looks well. A foothold
has been gained, and the rebel lines below
Bichmond cut Everything in this latter
movement is contingent to Grant's success,
and his victory over Lee would be made the
. more complete and crushing by tbe nether
millstone at Bermuda Hundreds.
But uuik ibis, dispatches have been telling
the country that the rebel strength in Vir
ginia was weak. If any reader of the
Tbibcve believed it, It has been despite oar
warning. Now the accounts say it was »
scatter of surprise in what numbers the
rebels were poured forward. Bead

strong in Louisians, and hang threatening

call for fresh troops. The first duty of tbe

made. We can hardly escape the necessity

When a reliable gentleman tells our Cairo
correspondent that tbe rebel army in Arkan

-against tbe imputation on onr common sense.

News from Gen. Banks is to the sth Inst
An unpleasant list of frvsb casualties is given
to our former naval losses, tbe rebels, with
the guns captured from Banks, having de
stroyed four more transports on the river be
low Alexandria. Their position is a serious
vme ibr Bank’s water communications, and it
would seem all too Badly that bis troubles are
sot yet over. His army still occupies a do*
ffensive position at Alexandria. The cotton
'expedition Is a most mournful affair.
Something for Congress to do. Give us a
law of Draft that shall give our armies men.
Jlorc men are wanted, and the events of the
sext few days may make the call imminent.
When we become us earnest and devoted for
ihe right as the rebels are
for the wrong, we eball not, on
light grounds, or -through timid policy,
withold from our holy cruse any element of
power. Remove the three hundred dollar
clause. Let the citizen be called upon to “go
•r Bend a man.” The call for more men is
pressing now. It may be imminent, and a
ihilnrc to respond fatal, a month hence.
Meanwhile, let the West fill up its Huxdiiep
Dat Tuoops.
The illegal and outrageous course panned
by the Mayor and Copperhead Aldermen on
Monday night has disgusted all right-minded
men. Alderman Bub, of the 11th word, re
nounces all further affiliation with a party
that acts aa the Chicago Copperheads have
done. He detests and abhors the rebel organ
and regards it as a shame and disgrace to
liave such a sheet quartered on the city treas
ury as corporation paper. He utterly repu
diates the action of the Aldermen on Mon*
dsynigbt as illegal and not binding.

Grant’s right, seize the Germania Ford,
In order to cut off Grant’s retreat, supposing
him to be whipped. But Grant was not
aware oi it. On the contrary, be paid no at
tention to that frjrdf bat sent hif wounded
men to Fredericksburg, and early on Satur
day mornlog ordered Burnside to march, ost
on tbe Spotteylvania Court House road,
thereby threatening Lee's line of communi
cations with Bichmond. In other words, be
marched south towards Bichmond. There
upon Lee precipitately retreated to prevent
our army getting between his force and his
capital. He was completely out-general
ed. Tbe advantages he had gained
at such terrible cost the day before,
were all * thrown away by bis blun
der in supposing that Grant contem
plated retreating. He forgot that he was
dealing with a second General Taylor, who
is never w hipped while a battalion remains
to be foimcd iu battle array. Tbe fighting
on Saturday was desultory, Lee retreating
south and Grant pursnin? him. Some
thought he would attempt i 9 make a stand
on the eouthbank of North Anna Hives; others
that be would continue his retreat to Rich
mond, and there take shelter behind Us strong
fortifications. Cut that Is exactly what
Grant vranla him to do. If ever Lea gets be
hind the Bicbmond entrenchments tbe fate of
Pemberton at Vicksburg awaits him, with
the exception of the paroling part of it. In
his encounter with Grant, Lee has discovered
what is meant out West by the words pluck
and tenacity. He has grappled with a bull
nog whose grip can never be loosened except
by annihilation.
When Gen. Grant discovered the large re
inforcements that Lee’s army was receiving,
he ordered Gen. Burnside to march to Wash
ington with thirty thousand of his forty
thousand troops encamped st Annapolis.
Tba remaining ten thousand proceeded to
Fortress Houioe, to help Butlers operations.
The special duty assigned to Burnside was
that of protecting Washington.- He detach
ed his black troops, some eight thousand
men, and placed them in the fortifications
and stockades along the railroad between
Alexandria and the Rappahannock. With
the remaining twenty-two thousand he fol
lowed after the main column under Grant,
making reconnoissanccs -to the North to sea
that Lee did not dispatch any consid
erable force toward tbe city of Washington.
Grant crossed the Eappahannock and opened,
the fight oh Wednesday. Burnside, instead
of halting, pressed hard after Grant, and by
a forced march of 25 miles reached the field
of battle on Thursday evening. The next
day he went Into tbe fight with hla corps of
Referees with all the dash and bravery that
signalised Marshal Ncy, at tbe bead of Na
poleon’s Old Gnard. His promptitude and
Intrepidity caved onr lines from impending
disaster on several occasions on bloody Fri
day. All honor to the- heroic patriot, Barn

Maj. Gen. John Sedgwick.
Tbe severest loss to onr Potomac Army slnoo
the movement commenced on Tuesday of lost
week, la the death of Major Gen. John Sedgwlsfc,
commander of the 6th Army Corps. He fell on
Monday, while gloriously fighting at the head ol
his command. Gen. Sedgwick was bom in Con
necticut, we think in 1815. He graduated st West
Point in 1877, and was appointed 3d Lieutenant of
the Sd artillery. In 1839 he wsa promoted to a
Ist Llentcnantcy: and breverted Captain for gal.
lantry atContreraa and Cherobnsco, where he had
command of Us company. He woa highly dis
tinguished for his conduct in the battles of ilolluo
del Hey and Chapultepec, and the attack on the
San Cosme gate, where he was again in command ol
his company, and for bis gallantry in these engage
ments was breretted Major. Ho was commis
sioned Captain in ISIS, and In March, 1835, pro
moted to be Major in the Ist cavalry. On tbe 35th
of April, 1861, he was appointed Colonel of the
4tb cavalry, and on August 31st, Brigadier General
of volunteers. He was assigned to Gen. Stone's
command on the upper Potomac, when that of
ficer was arrested in February, 1863, and during
tbe ChlckahomlLy campaign he had a division In
Gen. Sumner’s (*d) army corps. He was commis
sioueda Major General of volunteers July 4, 19G3.
At the battle ol Antletam Geo. Sedgwick was se
riunaly wounded and carried off the field. On hla
recovery in Decn, 1663, be was assigned to the com
mand of the 9th army corps CBornetde’s.) At the first
battle of Fredericksburg, tinder Burnside, he com
manded the Sth, and bore a most conspicuous and
pailanipart in that unfortunate contest: and at
the battle of Chancellorartile, under Booker, hla
rellantry and daring were even more conspicuous
tl-an at Fredericksburg. When Gen. Grant took
command of the Potomac amv, and changes made
in the various corps, Gen. Sedgwick was assigned
te tbs 6lb, and was in command of it when be fell.
Gen. Sedgwick was never married. A plain,
-unassuming gentleman, a little above the ordinary
hi-'ght, there was something about the man that
inspired confidence and respect. A thorough sol
dier, proved in a hundred battles, be was beloved
as every true soldier is sure to be, by bis men who
have seen his courage, end /clt the impulse of his
calm and clearordtrs in dire emergencies. In his
ba! its in camp he was as simple and unostenta
tious as Gon. Grunt. Bo never claimed or received
privileges there above those of tbe common soldier.
lli> tent was always on tbe extreme point, and in
the crisis of an engagement, always in tbe hottest
of the fight. Gen. Scdgevrick was a brave soldier,
a nobie gentleman, a true-hearted patriot, an hon
est man.
Gen. "Washburn pats a Stopper on
Hebei Intercourse with Memphis.
[Special Dfrpatcb to the Chicago Tribune.]
Canto, April jp, 135 i.
The steamer Bello Memphis, Capt. Dan Mussel
man, arrived this evening, with a huge load of pas
sect era, bringing Memphis dates to yesterday
(Monday) afternoon. Everything was quiet along
the liver.
Cut Price, of the Confederate army,, nephew of
Gee. Daddy Price, arrived in Memphis on Sunday
evening, in the character of s prisoner of war, hav
ing 1-cea captured a short distance below Hernan
do, Miss., while on a visit to some relatives.
A man named Ed. Wells has been sent to Cairo,
charred with being a thief, We have enough of
that sort already. - •
A 1 the blacksmiths of Memphis have been ex
cused from military duty, the Government requr*
Inc their services at their trade.
The following order has been Issued by General
Headquarters District of Memphis, Term., 1
Memphis, Tenxu, May 10,1864. J
Gmreuix. Obsebs No. 8.
The practical operations of commercial inter*
coarse from this city with States In rebellion, has
been to help largely to feed, clothe and equip oar
- enemies. Memphis has been of more value
to the Southern Confederacy since it fell
Into Federal hands, than Nassau. To take
cotton belonging to the Confederate Govern*
ment to Nassau or any other foreign port
Is a hazardous proceeding. To take it to Mem*
phis and convert It into supplies and greenbacks,
and return to the lines or the enemy, or to place
the proceeds to the credit of the rebel Government
In Europe, without passing again into the rebel
lines, U safe and easy.
I have undoubted evidence that large amounts of
cotton have been and are being brought here to be
eold belonging to the rebel Government. The past
and present system of trade has given strength to
the rebel army, while it has demoralized and
weakened our own. It baa invited the enemy
to hover around Memphis as his best
base of supply when otherwise be would have
abandoned the country. It renders of practical
soa-cflect the blockade upon the ocean, which has
ccst and is coating eo many millions. It opens our
lines to spies of the enemy and renders it next to
impossible to execute any military plan without
its becoming known to him long enough la ad*
vtnee for him to prepare for It. These tacts are
known to every intelligent man. In Memphis.
What is the remedy for these great and over
shadowing evils? Experience has shown that
then. 1 can be hut one remedy; and that is total pro
hibition of an commercial intercourse with States
in rebellion. It i« therefore ordered that from and
after the 16th day of Hay, 1804, the lines of the
army at Memphis be closed, and no person will
be permitted to leave the city without a special
pass from these headquarters. After that date all
•persons desirous of coming mto the dty will be
permitted to do so, but should he notified by the
pickets that they will not be allowed to return.
AH persons who desire to leave the city to go be
yond our lines must do so before the 16th Inst.
By order of Major General C. C. Waaußumr,
V*. h. Mono aw, Mijoaand Adjutant.
This proclamation, which differs materially in
effect from Gen. Prince’s order No. *7, published
yesterday, on the same subject, creates consider*-

Gen, Washburn Is in earnest, and will enforce

hardly probable.

Thomas was unable to drive them from on tormer

to-diy.” *
Tbe*T Vorld haa unconfirmed advices that Fort
Barling baa been captured by Gen. Batler.
The New York Timet correspondent Bays:
M Butler’s position atßcrmuda Hundred la consid
ered impregnable. It was gained by sharp fighting,
and will be held.”
The New York Tribune correspondent says:
Butler's future movements will depend on those of
Grant. Accoome agree that Beauregard is con
fronting Butler with 90,090 troops.
The Herald has the following relative to the bat
tles of Friday and Saturday:
At five o’clock in the morning (Friday) the con
test was renewed against our line, and the roarand
bum of battle came from everyqnarter. From cer
tain indications it was concluded that Lee was re
inforcing Lomretreet on Hancock’s front, and a
part of Burnside's corps was accordingly moved to
his support, taking a position to tne left of Gen.
Warren, and completely filling the gap Into which
the two brigades had been thrown on the preceding
evening. On moving at daylight toward the as
signed position, through a close forest, they found
it occupied by the rebels, prepared to dispute Its
possession. The fighting at this .point was over
by nine o’clock.- Finding It impossible to dislodge
the rebels from their position, early in the morn
ing, Hancockwas driven back close to kls breast
works by a superior force, but subsequently rallied
bis men and succeeded in regaining most of the
Koucd. Between 10 and 11 o'clock, however,
mgfitreet succeeded in turning the left of his ad
vance and throwing it into great confusion. This
extended along the entire line, and came near in
volving the whole corps in Inextricable confusion.
He was once more forced back to bis breastworks,
and the rebels actually planted their colors inside
ol these, but could not sustain themselves, and
were ejected. At this time heavy reintorcemeuts
were thrown to his support from Burnside’s corps,
and bis men were rallira and taken well In hand,
and all farther disaster was removed. The choree
of Loogstrcet was completely overwhelming. Solid
masses of Infantry were burled upon Hancock time
after time, with aa impetuosity that nothing could
withstand. It was exceedingly fortunate tor the
Sd corps and the whole army that he was
checked at the critical period and .‘driven
back with as mnch precipitation as he had
come. The ground in front of .Hancock had
been fought over a number of times, aad the
wounded and dying on the field were vast.
• At night Hancock occupied his breastworks, and
hadnolhing but prisoners and rebel dead to show
for the slaughter of the two days' fighting. Ho be
haved with conspicuous gallantry throughout, and
was on the field personally where the danger was
the thickest.
Gen. Warren also rode along the line. The ut
most surprise was manifest at the number of troops
Lee was able to bring into action. This corps re
tained its first position, however, till darkness.
About midnight a charge was made which caused
it to give way, and it was unable to regain the
ground thus lost. This, of course, compelled the
abandonment of a great portion of the line of
breastworks In front of this corns, and brought
the skirmish line within a half mile of Grant’s ana
Meade's headquarters.
Sedgwick’s corps (the 6th) maintained itself
against the vigorous assaults of superior numbers
at different times during the day, and had no se
rious reverse until Isce in the evening, when a
charge was made on its right for the purpose of
turfing it, as was done with Hancock’s corps in
•themorning. Molroy’s old division was driven
back in great confusion, at length, and the ensiay
succeeded In effectually turning onr right flank.
The behavior ot this division is severely criticised
bv those supposed to know moro concerning the
This probably necessitated the transfer of onr
rick ana wounded and all the supply trains from
the Gennania Ford road to onr landing, to Cban
cellorsvllle. The latter were in motion the whole
night, and at daylight, had Lee occupied Germania,
and cat off the retrait of the army by that route, it
would have given nlm an advantage. But night
worked incalculable mischief (words are hers
missing) causing an undue extension of the kfce,
and a corresponding weakening of it.
The contest of Friday was □naatlsfketory, and
many officers despondlngly feared that Lee would
m some manner defeat Grant. Superficial observ
ers might construe onr repulses that day Into a
deleaL but no sock foreboding found a resting
place tu the minds of those whokuew the tenacity
ol purpose and the fertility of resources that char
acterizes Grant.
The advantages of the next day .verified these
hope*. The battle re-commenced at daylight on
Saturday. but the firing was desultory and scatter
ing. Ko fierce attacks were made by either aide.
Both Generala were Intent on strategy, and neither
anxious to bring on a general engagement. Lee
seemed Intent on cutting our cotomonlcation na
Germania Ford. Grant appeared utterly ludlfier
out .to this, and seemed rather to court It by with
drawing , Sedgwick from his position, and
throwing it oack by Germania Ford, -near
bis own headquarters, and pushing' Burn

♦ Cairo, May 10.
The steamer Commercial had arrived at Memphis
from Little Roclr. Her officers report that General
Steele’* forces there, when they left on Thursday
last, considered tho place sale from rebels, though
the citizens were still alarmed. Oar troops were
in line of battle when the Commercial moved, and
Pine Bluff was in the same condition. No one Is
a’anned excepting citizens, some of whom were
leaving. Dobbins with his regiment was between
Arkansas and Bt. Frauds rivers, homing cotton
and conscripting.
Some of the rebel cavalry bad gone In the direc
tion of Fort Smith, it was thought with view to the
capture of the place. The Rebels had already taken
Dardcnellca. There were no particulars of the
affiair. Thitis a small town below Fort Smith,
and the rebels supposed Government stores to be
there as well as at Lfttlo Bock. ’A gentleman who
has been with Price's army for three years, and
sow making his way to his home In Missouri,
states the rebel army has been In a demoralized
condition dues It was compelled to leave Little-
Bock. He says, the rebels arc not carrying out
tbelr threats of Indiscriminate slaughter of cap
tured colored troops. They took many of them at
fcailne river who were wounded, dressed
their wound*, and sent a flag of
truce to General Steele for their exchange.
He gives as a reason for this change of tactics, that
the negroes during the whole of Gen. Steele's late
campaign toot lUfpritonen, and the rebels thought
lithe safest policy to compromise t£e matter, The
■colored troops are said to hare fought like vete-'

er Eliza Shcddon, bound for New York, has Just
arrived here from Newbern. and reports that the
enemy made a demonstration on Newbern yester
day, cutting off the railroad communication be
tween that place and Beaufort, and making his ap
pearance on the sooth side of the Ncnae River,
two miles below the city, with a cavalry force, ac
companied by a battery of four guns, which com
manded the water approaches to Newbern fora
brief period. • , '
The gunboats Commodore Barney and Louisiana
suddenly made their appearance at the point threat
ened, and forced the enemy hack from the river.
Nothing was allowed to pass over the railroad from
Newbern to Beaufort yesterday, as this demonstra
tion was expected; therefore the enemy failed to
secure a loaded train of cars.
Captain White thinks this movement of the ene
bt was only a cavalry dash, and not Intended as a
general attack on Newbern.

Sir. ITalpln, In reply to my cbargo against Mm of an.
dtrb*ndr d dcallnjanS deceptlvencjfl.U seeking to icrn
tie tables on me, by referring 10 sundry advertise
ments given uibUfar back as March. This Is easily ex
plained: I dldsolnlMJ and 125% for the reason that
some cf our frian’dswho choose the most prominent
places on the outside of the boot I bare always
deemed It needful to secure early la the year, which
Mr. Halpln always cattily shared is, bat which, as I
bad no right to use liU name till May, I hare always
takes In ray own. He well knows, however, that that
made no olffarence, as I always transferred them to
oni Joint account, #s I should hare done apaln this
year had h# sot broken faith with ms.
The rlmple Diets of the whole contr:versy are, that
as far back as last January or February, 1 was lold of
bU Intention, and wrote to him to know If It were
true. He came to me and denied all such intention,
assuring me that he Intended to g» on wt’hmeas
canal. This can be proved by at least are persona la
my office. Again, about the kid of April, 1 wrete him
a note reminding him that U was near May. and to
some In and arrange. On Thursday the 28th, only four
days before we should commence, he came Into my
office aid said be should be In as usual on Monday
moralzg togoonwitta me, while he was at the same
time secretly preparing men to go out and cacg<as the
city on his own personal account, which is, as I cox
eelre, rather sharp practice for a man to do who
stakes any pretension to speak the truth.
1 was told some thus ago that his Mend. Mr. Rich
ard Edwards, of the Carpet Bag notoriety, wanted to
get possession of the City Directory, and that he eonld
torn Mr. Balptn over his finger. I suppose he tas done
se. by the present operation. Ur Hslplasaysbe wants
ntsympathy. I confess I do. Iha?e alwayssymps*
tblzed wl’b our Government to the utmost of my
means as a loyal American citlssa. I think that we
should always sympathize with and support the right*
It la cue of the divine elemen'aol oci nature; aad,ai*
though he Is seeking to do me and himself great In*
Jnry.yet If he were In need, I should not deem it right
to withhold sympathy eren from him.
