Jhc voluminous dispatches from oil sources
published within the last two days in the
Tbibdne, gives as correct a‘ricw of the situ
ation as can at present be communicated.
The news is, of course, not fall, nor from
official sources except in a secondary degree.
It will be moager tor some days. After a*
elorm It will take several days Ibr the ele
ments to get settled and to lobtaln a clear ac
count of the damages; but in this case we do
nut understand the storm to be vet over. We
have had a heavy gale with thunder and light
xlcg whichlcafce some wrecks.but the clouds
arc not dispersed.
It will be noticed that we hear next to
nothing yet from Grant himself, which shows
that the Lieutenant General has yet work on
land, and considers nothing so lor advanced
toward completion as to be In condition to
As we have been frequently misled in sim
ilar cases by the first bulletins, especially
from the Potomac army, there may be with
come a doubt as to how much is to be be
lieved In the present case. Bnt ws sec no
reason to think any doubt is to be had on the
success of the recent movement.
That wc may place ordinary confidence in
the accounts, so far as they go, is reasonable,
from several considerations. They come for
one thing, from a great number of points and
materially .confirm each other. Then, it has
sever been Gen. Grant's habit to lie, concern
ing his movements, be they successes, or dis
asters;.and as he does not abuse the public
confidence himself others will be slow to do
It for him, and finally, it must have got
through the brain of toe War Department by
this time, that it is Just as well to tell the
truth in the first place as to amuse the public
for* week with fdseboods, to be obliged
swallow them all at the week's end. We
apprehend, therefore, that the public need
mot fear a repetition of the sort of stories
which were sent out after the battle of Chan-
last year, x «
The resume of operations thus far is about
this: The advance of Grant across the Rap
idon was on Tuesday night of last week.
There was skii ml thing on Wednesday, fight
ing on Thursday, and on Friday a hard and
very general battle. That night Lee drew
and whether to Richmond direct, or to the
South Anna, across .which to await Grant for
another fight, docs not appear. Geo. Grant
had reached and occupied the Richmond and
Fredericksburg Railroad, including the town
of Fredericksburg; and was crowding for
ward toward the Anna at last advices of this
It does not thus appear that all Gen. Lee's
digging across the Rapidan wafe of any value
to him in the contest; Gen. Grant haring
crossed on his right and so far from his main
v works os to draw him away from them to the
bottle. Why Gen. Lee should hare suffered
him to cross the stream in such security, can
be accounted for on only one of two suppo
sitions. He either must hare been mistaken
as to time, Grant haring advanced alittle be
fore he was ready fqr him, and, thus have
somewhat surprised him; or he may have
thought the tangled woods of the “ Wilder
ness” abetter field of resistance than the
banks of the Rapidan; and especially as, if
he could defeat him there, the redressing of
the river -might endanger the whole of
Grant's army. A third supposition is possi
ble, viz: That Grant's movementwonld.be
upon his left Instead of his right; but we
hardly think he looked for him in that quar
Our readers will see that Giant's move
ment is so comprehensive, and in each
strength at all points, that should it miscarry,
st one oi them, there is still room for it to'
succeed as a whole. The Confederacy must
hare a prodigious force in the field to hold it
hack at all the places upon which it is made
to press. We have no faith whatever in the
- accounts we have been receiving from desert
ers and others as to the small force the rebels
Have In the field. Lee may have had bat
SO,OOO or 90,000 men with him on the Rapi
dan, but he has more troops than that within
supporting distance. The conscription has
2>ecn merciless; and though the rebel army
may not be equal in numbers to our own, it
£s still large, and is without doubt “well in
Stand.” But we believe it will find* more
work than it has calculated upon in attend-
Sng to all that now demands its attention.
Some of the movements we bslleve to have
been a emprise to the rebels.: The passage
dp the James River does not seem to have
2>ecn anticipated by them, though privately
amderstood some time ago to be on foot in
*rcll informed quarters. We regret the tone
of feome of the dispatches in that region,- in
claiming special credit for this or that Gen
eral for tiffs move. It will be time enough
to put In that sort ot claim when the work
Is accomplished. The public would jn«t aa
soou u enouid be apian of Gen. Butler's as
cf anybody else, but would rather wait a
little before hearing the title to it vindicated.
Merit can always bide Its time. The people
will hold their breath till more is reported,
mot only from Virginia, but from Cbattauoo*
But we know Gen. Grant's habit to fol
low np his successes, and have no Idea,
therefore, but that the well grounded anxiety
of the public to hear more will not be
Perhaps some person has been tempted to
ask the question, us daring the winter and
spring the successive fairs of such large pro
portions have been held in various large
cities, of what use all this gathering of mon
ies for the army, now perfectly healthy, and
with only here and there a wounded man in
the hospitals? We can begin to see, now
that the anny take* the field. Already at the
first dash of arms we hear of ten thousand
wounded men, the first installment of which
are arriving at 'Washington.
Gen. Grant is prepared to fight a succes
sion of battles, and we take it, intends to
keep them going, if possible, until some
thing is determined. Within a month he
may fight ten stiff battles, unless sooner de
feated, if the enemy is able to stand up under
so many. And if each battle should number
a loss of ten thousand, we should have a
hundred thousand wounded men, to say
nothing of the sick sent to the hospital
through the increased exposures of field ser-
Tice. It would be nothing strange If quite
that number of men shonld demand medical
care and nursing within the coming six
weeks, whether the result of ten battles or
three. We have not before undertaken a
campaign where the understood programme
of the whole has been marching and fighting
alternately and without cessation, as at pres
ent. It has been our mode to: undertake
aomc little special job, like the cutting away
of some little twig, oral moat a limb bf the,
rebellion; and having accomplished that, or
failed in It, as*the case might be, we bare sat
down a month or six months to rest. The
aim now is at the trunk ol the tree; and
taring; spent the whole winter in grinding
the axes, and* putting up the provisions, and
fattening the oxen for tne service, the whole
troop oi choppers have gone out, led by lum
berman Grant, to hew this huge structure to
the ground and bring it off

A Splendid. Sword to he Presented to
[Correspondence of the Chicago Tribune.]
St. Loci*, Mvy 9. .
The officers and soldiers of the 2d brigade
2d division of the ICtb (formerly 13th) army
corps, have purchased a splendid sword,
which they design to present, as soon as
possible, or when convenient, to their late
brave and popular commander, Major Gene
ral R. J. Oglesby. The sword was in the
custody of Capt A. G. Hawes, until Satur
day last, when It was turned over by him to
on appropriate committee in St Louis for
exhibition during the approaching &>/>** f*u
in ttiat Utj.
The sword 'was designed by Mr. J. Q. A.
"Ward, of New York, and reflect* much credit
upon the artist’s genius. The [grasp of the
hilt is a statue of the Goddess of Liberty clad
to the waist in armor, and leaning on a
sword. Her head is covered by one of the
wiigs of the ‘'National Bird* which sur
mount* the whole. This statue is a model
of artistic beauty; the anatomy is perfect,
and the flnish exquisite. The guard is the
American flag wound and connected by cord
and tassel, with the guard-plates, upon
which the General’s mono rram stands oat in
relief. The whole is of gold, and is solid, a*
its weight abundantly testifies, j
Upon the first b:md is a representation of
the wounding of Gen. Oglesby in the battle
of Corinth, fle is represented in bold relief
as he fell from his horse, pierced through
the breast by a minie ball, and supported as
Was the case, by a soldier who was standing
nc; r. His horse, at the same; time being
wounded, is represented In the agonies of
detth. The upper band is surmounted by a
dog’s and a lion’s bead, emblematic of cour
age and fidelity; under which is '.Hercules re
clining upon his clnb. The figures on the
relief ol the upper band are most elaborate
and artistic.
The second band represents a female figure
recording upon a tablet the battles inwnlcb
Ge» . Oglesby has been engaged.! The lower
band delineates a charge of cavalry and also
abi yonct charge. The blade was made by
the Ames Company of Mass., and
is quite unique. It ia of the finest steel, inl
will cut an ordinary aword blade as if it were
wood. ;
Altogether, this is the finest weapon I have
ever seen, and If I may bcliave ,critlcs sup
posed to be competent, it Is tho finest ever
mode In this country. Nearly every soldier
In tie 2d brigade has hie mite Invested in it.
In some of the regiments it was necessary to
limit the subscriptions’to iwenty-flve cents—
so e:igcr were the men to show their affection'
for their beloved commander. The cost of
this splendid sword was about $2,000.

naval portion olthe cxpsdltlon was in readi

the .military authorities with being ready

a promptitude never excelled in this* or any
other department.. A portion of our. flotilla
was moved np in advance to 1 make urecou

the guerillas from harassing the unarmed
transports as they came up. ■
At early dawn the iron-clads, as well as the
rest of the flotilla, hove up their anchors and
started ahead.,... It was a grand sight—such on
one as bos never before been upon
these waters. Five iron-clads and more tnan
a score of vooden vessels makeup our fleet.
We expect before the week has ended to be
able the to show rebels the intention of our
naval demonstration.
At the time of the publication of this let

operations are intended to cover the advance

of General Entler expect to land on the south
side of the James Hirer. The flotilla will
not only protect the landing, bnt will keep
far enough ahead to prevent the rebels from
annoying the troops daring that operation.
Wc are aware that the rebels have three
iron-dads above Fort Darling, and the com
mander of these vessels may be tempted to
come down aud try their powers with our
vessels. Some persons may think that the
rebels are not aware that wc have any Iron
clads in onr flotilla; bnt we must remind
them that not a vessel has moved here for
some days hut the fact has been immediately
telegraphed to Richmond. Therefore it is
possible that tbe Union iron-clads may not
have an opportunity to sink, disable or cap

Thousands of hearts are beating fast with

not prepared for any demonstration in these

Is great. The troops Lave the utmost conH

men. Surrounded by some of the ablest
military men In the held, the commanding
General enjoys all the advantages of sound'
advice. His own great talents, however, are
sufficient to carry him through almost any
thing, and his knowledge of tactics, learned
by three years’ experience, necessarily makes
him a good soldier and able to conduct the
operations of a campaign. The troops in bis
command are all veterans and soldiers who
have heard the thunders of artillery and roar
of musketry before, and these men will not
flinch in front of the enemy now. With all
these advantages, victory must crown the
efforts of General Butler. His success will
make him the greatest man in the country.

The Tecum set dropped anchor off Fortress
Monroe at a quarter to 6 p. m. on Thursday,
April 27, after a very steady and successful
run of less than forty-eight hours! from the
anchorage inside of Sandy Hook. On Friday
morning she again got under way,| and-came
to no anchor at the mouth of James nver,
within sight of the wreck ol the gallant bat
111-lated Congress. Daring the passage down
the coast she was blessed with most favora
ble weather, Tight breezes and a [moderate
sea prevailing throughout the trip,; The en
gines and boilers worked smoothly and well,
apt coring to give entire satisfaction to.tho
able chief engineer, Mr. Faron,j and his
corps of assistant officers.
The Monitor class of iron-clad is unques
tionably a most uncomfortable vessel for her
ere w in any kind of work ontside-of smooth
water; for, notwithstanding the favorable
circumstances under which she made the ma
from New York, the trip was extremely un
pleasant and trying to the ship’s' company,
with her stores aboard and cool bunkers
filled, the deck of a vessel of this description
is but a foot or eighteen inches above the
water. Consequently, while atcamingahead,
every hatchway and skylight must be batten
ed down, as the seas continually 'overflow
her decks eves during such moderate weath
er as we eroericnced. Thus all bonds are
Eenned up within very close warm Quarters,
elow the water line, with no egress from
the bowels of their Iron home save by way of
the narrow ladders and hatchways of the tur
ret. This of itaelf, as a consequence of abso
lute necessity, has ol course to be borne with
as best It can; but unfortunately the deck,
with its nine Inches thickness of oakandiron
plating over that, proved so extremely leaky
as to defy all attempts to stop the streams of
’water from rushing through. The officers
showed a praiseworthy desire to do every
thing in their power to render the men as
comtortable as circumstances would ’ admit;
but the discomfort experienced by the ship’s
company may he imagined when I state that
the berth deck is less than twenty-five feet
square iu the clear; that within its’ narrow
limits some sixty or seventy men have to eat,
live and sleep, and that during the whole of
the passage the water was continually
streaming- down upon them through leaks'
Doubtless the weight of material used in
constructing these vessels pats a great strain
upon the deck timbers as they forge their
way through the waters; but most decidedly
some plan should be adopted before‘laving
on the deck plates to render their timbers
somewhat less leaky than a sieve.- 'Barely

LUMBEII—The receipts of Lumber darlcg the past
week amounted to 9,319,C00 ■ fret—an .increase of
SEf.COO feet over the receipts of the week prerloiir. Tn
ccmpariiou with xectlptiof the corresponding week
ofla«t year It shows.an Increase ef 9.C6ofeet. .The
demand during the week has been unusually active,
particularly for the better class of cargoes, sad the
msrketrnledfln* at an advise* of tally 50®?flcpar M
over the closing quotations of Inst week. Notwith
standing that the receipts have been what would usu
ally be called liberal, they are far from bcloz adequate
to the demand, and dealers experience a treat deal of
difficulty In filling orders, toms of which ore near'y
a month on the market. This Is more particularly
the ca e with orders for i trips, frncmg andfloorla;,
all of which aitlchs are scarce. The fleet from Mus
kegon, which was expected to strive a day or two
ago, hat not jet started—the state'of the harbor at
that pert being so bad t}iat vessels cannot pass out
laden, owing to the accumulations, or the''bar,** at
the nouth of the Muskegon Blrer.; There have been
very few arrivals to-day, owing to the tcrplflc gait
which swept aver here last night, and it will be folly
two days, at least, before any of the east chore fleet
will Mae to hand. The arrlvala from Green Bay and
Eagmaw have as far been light* bnt within two or
thtee weeks, at farthest, we may look for Increased
receipts from tkoso quarters.
SHINGLES—TLo receipts of Shingles daring the
past week has been liberal—nearly doable those of
the week previous—ant owing to a good demand the
market has ruled lira and active. ,
