THE NEWS,
The cod is not yet Our news Is hut ft few
hours later than our latest dispatches of yes
terday’s issue, which anticipated the after
noon telegrams elsewhere given. In onr last
issue one of our army correspondents in Vir
ginia brought the news down to the middle
■of 'Wednesday forenoon. Elsewhere onr
Washington midnight dispatches represents
tis the situation at darken Wednesday even
ing. The armies stQl confronted each other,
hut there had been no heavy fighting daring
that day. Wo had held onr own. • The
gallant “butcher of Fredericksburg”
as the secesh organ in this- city
delights to call Burnside, has been
•at Lis work of butchering a great many of
the friends ot the Chicago Jell Davis sheet,
And earned its fresh animosity therefor.
Burnside has been a prominent hero of this
battle, and added to his knightly lame. Gen.'
<3rant is still master ot the situation, with
an army about him who will not fall him in
courage and determination. The advance
has already been ordered afresh, and ere this
the standards ol the Union have been set
further toward Richmond.
We prefer to discredit some of the more
prominent rumors of yesterday, falling to
And them confirmed by our own of
Information. The statement that Butler has
been ordered away from James Hirer to re
inforce Grant, wenre not prepared to believe;
the elaborate little armistice scene gotten
■up between Grant and Lce { ire must
regard as a too transparent attempt
•to reproduce, the bii'ory. of Donelson.
We choose to withhold credence in the
Hew Tork Herald rumor, wholly ■uncon
firmed of a substantial victory by General
Grant and the capture of 20,000 prisoners
andlSgnns. It may be true. We shall be
delighted to chronicle the fact. We expect
to chronicle something even better than
that, but wa shall not feed our readers on
false hopes. Better wait and see.
Bat we are prepared to believe that our
solid advantages are beginning to appear.
Our army has stood •* pounding” and is yet
undaunted. Its wounded He in heaps. The
concise brief tale of the battles suggests ap
palling pictures of suffering. The wounded
heroes, reluctantly left to perish in the flam
ing forest fired by our shells, the acres of
. maimed and bleeding* boys in blue, are sadly
suggestive. But irradiating all is the sol
diers’ reward, the dawn of Victory. Lee has
. been cut off from Richmond by Sheridan’s
cavalry raid. ~MUee of trade have been tom
np along which his supplies must come. So
strong was our party to whom this work was
entrusted, that they re-captured 500 of our
prisoners being sent down to Richmond.
Our land communications for supplies end
reinforcements arc short,- and cannot be
cut off We have taken 6,000 prisoners, a
splendid arm of our service is comparatively
fresh. Grant can turn upon the enemy the
■throats of five hundred cannon and with
their thunders give his worn columns rest.
Se can stubbornly hold every foot of his ad-
Vancc, and if he can drive his enemy to earth
the dosing picture of Vicksburg will be se
cured. We leave out of question the possi
ble part other Federal columns westward and
.couth of Richmond'are to play, when we
pronounce the situation increasingly hope
ful.
Brig. Gen. T. J. Stevenson, reported killed
in the battle of Tneaday, sear Spotyslrania,
yna a native of Massachusetts, and entered
the service as Colonel of the 24th Massachu
setts regiment, in October, 186 L His regi
ment formed a part of Burnside's force in the
•operations «t Roanoke Island and Newbern
in the fall of that yrar, and through the whole
■ of that campaign the coarse of Cob Steven
son was marked by notable instances of per*
«onal bravery and fine military talent Until
"very recently, he bae been, since the com
mencement of operations against Charleston,
■in command of a division mirier Gen. Gilmore,
in the department of the South He was a
young and promising officer, and the service
at this time will sadly feel his loss.
In the face of the favorable news from
Grant's army, gold continues to beep np.
This is owing In part to the heavy shipments
to Europe, The Wednesday's steamer car
ried away with it $1,020,488 in coin to pay
Tor foreign silks, brandies, jewelry and per
lomcry. Another reason is foend in the
enormous inflation of the currency. With
TOO millions of Federal currency of different
descriptions, and 400 millions wild-cat stufl;
is it any wonder that gold ranges between
170 and 180?" The remedy for this state of
things consists first of a smaller consump
tion of foreign goods; second, a redaction
Of the Inordinate currency volume by taxing
the notes oi the local banks anddriviegthem
-out; and third, triumph of our arms over
the rebellion.
Honey is needed to aid in the formation
ot One Hundred Day troops. Many are will
ing and eagerto go, but will leave families
dependent upon them for support. A lead
ing Lake street merchant, Potter Palmer,
Esq., will donate the profits of one day's
sales in his retail department to this fond.
Why may not the example become general
among onr merchants ? At any rate, let oar
shoppers remember and see that Hr. Palm
er's employees are kept busy on Saturday,
-for it Is in aid of a holy cause, and deserves
ihe most prominent mention that can be
given It
The day before Grant lelt Washington to
.join the army and march on Lee, he wrote to
■a friend of his in this city on private bnsl
• jiess, and added a postscript In these words
** My army Is in fine condition. I feel confident
** that I can depqpd on It to carry out my plans.
••♦When It fights It U going to hnrt tta country’s
- ** foes, else I am no Judge of men.”
Tbe events of tbe last ten days prove that
.Ei< faith was well founded; that be led In-
Tindble heroes to battle. Hla own bull-dog
-courage seems to have been imparted to
- every soldier. % •
THE HOTTED STATES SAOTTAST
COMMISSION.
Let not loyal men and women of the
Northwest forget the present urgent call made
~npon the United Slates Sanitary Commission
Jor the care of the many thousand ■wounded
--soldiers thrown upon their care Is the recent
and pending tremendous battles, both in Vir
ginia and Georgia. Happily, with a fore
thought and patriotism whose fruits' win
'Stand among the most memorable features of
•this struggle for the Union, the period of in

the purchase ot supplementary stores. If the San
itary Commission had received all the money
raised by the various Fairs, It would still be
straitened in its means by the grdat falling off in
the supply of enpplementaiy stores. As the flow
of supplies Into the storehouses fallen off more
than fifty per cent, while the demands upon the
Commission hare everywhere Increased, yon can
readily understand that the necessity of purchasing
out of the funds of the Commission at,. the
present high prices of everything, not

tion. The Sanitary Commission has now
. nearly three yean and attained a large measure of
the confidence of the public and of the
forces. Its operations reach every column of the
• army, and meet a corresponding dependence on
the part of the soldiers. If the people are persuad
ed that the Sanitary Commission hss grown rich
and tbereforc.ln need of nothing, in lesa th.n two

The people all over the country must be
to continue their contributions of stores, or else

will fall to receive the full measure of succor and

Pf The great battles in the “Wilder
ness” between the armies of Grant and Lee,
resemble in the style of fighting, those old
contests of the British and French troops.
The Southerners attack our lines with the
fiery impetuosity of the French; while the
Northern soldiers display the obstinacy and
unyielding valor that characterize ike British,
in repelling them. Thus the rebel army
dashed itself for five days against the Fed
eral ranks, but all in vain. The columns
stood firm as granite pillars. At length, on
Tuesday, Grant’s army took the offensive,
and pushed back the Confederate lines by
main strength and bayonet charges.
Brigadier General Maitby.
Several months ago the distinguished officer
whose name forms the caption to this para
craph,was promoted to the grade of Brigadier
General of Volunteers. That appointment wat
etnl into the Senate for confirmation, bat for some
reason the nomination has been neglected. It ia
difficult to Imagine the cause of this neglect. No
officer has made a better record, and few have suf
fered to that extent. The 'sentiment of the great
West is unmistakably in favorof bis confirmation.
Brigadier General Maitby was formerly Lieuten
ant Colonel of the 45th Illinois infantry, better
known perhaps as the “Lead Mine Regiment, ll of
which Brigadier John E. Smith was the first
ColouoL
General Maitby participated in the battle* of
Donelson, Shiloh, Port Gibson, Raymond, Jack
son. Champion Hills, and Vicksburg, aad In skir
mishes and smaller battles innumerable, with dis
tinguished credit. Be has been twice seriously
wounded, once at Shiloh, and once for which he ia
now suffering, in the assault on Fort Hill, Vicks
burg, on the Ssth of June, 1863, whfle leading the
*sth in the forlorn hope. It wat for his bravery on
this last occasion that, at the urgent request and
recommendation of Gen. McPherson, aad Gen.
Grant and Gen. Logan that he was promoted to
his present rank.
He Is now suffering from the effect of wounds
there received, and is nnableto perform active ser
vice. He has been tendered a furlough, but, like a
gallant soldier as he it, declines to accept It. Gen.
Maitby ia in command of the Ist brigade of the Ist
division of the 17th army corps, now at Vicksburg.
This is the first instance In hts whole military ca
rceothat be h«a not soaght and been placed in the
front. He never bad a leave of absence, and baa
never been'a day off duty, except when wounded.

Advices have been received from Gen. Grant’a
army np to dark last Wednesday night. There
was no general engagement yesterday, (Wednes
day) and no attack by any considerable portion of
the forces on cither side.
At nightfall our army remained in the position
occupied by tbe several corps at the close of Tues
day’s battle—Burnside retaining all the ground he -
had won from the enemy.' There wa« some skir
mishing and some artillery firing at Intervals dur
ing the day.
Correapondcntrspeak of General Warren as .be
ing in command of bis brigade as usual. Tbe
rumor of his death sprung from that of the death
of Colonel Warren, commanding a regiment Geo.
Warren’s corps. ‘
The report that General Lee sent a flag of truce
to Grant asking, permission to bury his dead, is
unconfirmed, and is doubtless unfounded.
General Sheridan has been heard from. He has
advised General Grant that he has destroyed sev
eral miles of the railroad between Lee’s army and
Richmond, disabled two locomotives, .burned a
number of the enemy’s trains, and recaptured Jite
hundred qf our prisoners.
It was believed at Fredericksburg this morning
that Lee was retreating across tbe Fo River.
Two commissioned officers arrived here yester
dsy tmong the wounded-men,- and were sent to the
hoepitaL To-day they were examined and found
tobe unhurt. They were immediately -sentback
to the army in irons to be tried by Drum-head

A number of soldiers who made their way here
under some false pretense, have been sent bach,
and will be placed in the next engagement,
where there will 1>« so opportunity for repeating
the operation. . •'

WißHisoTOsr, May 12.—1t is confirmed that in an
order Leued on Monday, found oa some prisoners,
Gen. Lee notified his army that his communication
* Ith Richmond was broken, and that no rations
could be drawn from thence, and he advised them
to capture' supplies from onr army.
Gen. Grant had captured, up to yesterdav, about
6,000 prisoner*. Part of a regiment was captured
entire. It was composed of men who had been
exchanged but a few weeks since.
Tbe logs of the enemy in killed, is much greater
than ours. His wounded are supposed to be about
the tame.
The latest. edition of tbe Star of this afternoon,
has the following:'
Gen. Lee is reported to have asked for a cessa
tion of hoetDltiei, to bury his dead. Grant replied
be had set time to bnry his own dead, and he

Yesterday morning’s fight was renewed, and con
tinued with a varying aucceas, until li o’clock,

The prisoners captaredoa Tuesday and ITedues
day number over 4,000.' The rebel dead and woun
ded were found covering almost every foot of
ground wherever onr troops surged forward and
the rebels gave way.
Tbe slaughter among our troops waa terrific, but
not so great as that ol the enemy, and but few
captures were made by the latter.

WasacmTo*, May 12.—Very Important new*
baa just been received. The result of the last
great battle it the defeat of the rebels and the', re

been captured.
It will not take Gen. Grant aB the summer to
finish this fight at this rate.
Latte.—Up to this writing we have received no
confirmation of the rumor above mentioned, but
the fact that each a report was current in Freder

In regard to our position.
FROM GEN. BUTLER’S COMMAND.
Bxmnm* Huztobzds, Va., May 10.
Nothing definite has yet been accomplished by
onr forces in the way of captures, but everything
looks fevomble.
Beauregard with about 25,000 men is in Peters
burg, and we have an the railroads cut leading to
that city, and forces enough to keep Beauregard
there until be surrenders.. Wo shall, it is reported,
soon commence a alcgo of the place.
There are four monitors and several gunboats
within four miles of Fort Darling, ready to coope
rate with our land lorces, a part of them abreast of
the monitors. Our forces occupy a strong position
and are strong enough to hold It, and aa soon as
Petersburg Is taken to advance on Fort Darling
with a land and water force and with the will and
determination existing in our ranks, there is no
doubt of success.
It is supposed that General Eautz is now to the
south ol Petersburg, aiming at the destruction of
railroads leading south from Richmond.
Correspondents have probably announced his de
feat, and many of his troops captured, Ac> It la
not believed here. Beauregard has no cavalry.
WASHUtQTojr, May 13.
The World has a rumor from Washington that the
10th and 18th army corns, on the north bank of the
James River, are to be sent around to reinforce the
Army of the Potomac from the north. That they
comprise too small an army to capture Richmond,
and too numerous to permit their being kept out
of the field. , «-
The correspondence from General Bailer's army*
contains nothing later of that General's operations
than was announced In his dispatch.
Fortress Mokbos, May 11.—The latest advices
from the front elate that the gunboat Brewster was
blown np on the Appomattox, yesterday, bya rebel
battery. No statement Is given In regard to the
loss of life.
Fighting was going on all day yesterday. The
main portion appeared to be on oar right.
The troops were under command of Gen. Smith.
The turnpike between Richmond and Petersburg
was the bone of contention.
Bp to a p. m. to-day nothing later has been re
ceived. Vest of oor dispatches are suppressed.*
Petersburg has not been abandoned, burned nor
as yet besieged. Beauregard Is there In command.
Fort Darling is still In the hands of the rebels.
A report Just received states that CoL Spear has
horned the long bridge near.Weldon, and two oth
ers ; that he made three ctuuges, and the third time
succeeded. I give this for what it is worth. Hy
informant says be beard CoL Spear tell it.
The latest advices from Newbem state that the
rebels arc sgaln threatening the place, that they
have, possession of the railroad, and that last
Thursday they demanded the surrender of Moor
head City. Our forces refused, and the rebels de
stroyed tho railroad and retired.
It is rumored that they have 8,000 men, and pro
pose to invest Newbem.

Wasuikoton, May 12.—The Star says that Gen.
Burnside’s colored troops were held in reserve,
but were subsequently brought into action, and
fought with desperation. Their officers expected
to bare considerable difficulty in restraining them,
as they appeared to be desirous not to take any
prisoners, being exasperated by the remembrance
of Fort Pillow, and the atrocities committed there.
It wit*believed in the army tbat Gen. Sigcl, hav-
log made forced marches, had destroyed Lee's
railroad connections with Lynchburg, and that
Sheridan had done the same to Lis communica
tions with Richmond, -
An order was given for another advance yester
day (Wednesday) morning, at 8 o’clock.
When onr informant left, bur centre and right
‘ were heavily engaged with the rebels.

THE GREAT BATTLE OP TUESDAY.
Washington May 13.— Dispatches from the
Army of the Potomac, dated Wilderness battle
Acid, May 11th, say:
Probably the most desperate fighting of the past
seven terrible days took place on Tuesday.
Believing the enemy to have sent the greater part
of his troops to Richmond, an advance along the
entire line was determined on at an early hoar.
• The 2d corps, having the right of the line, had
crossed tbe Po' tbe evening previous, and met with
bnt slight opposition. In tbs morning the posi
tion oftho enemy was found to be In the shape of
a horse shoe, and on Hancock’s troops advancing
to the attack they were compelled to fall back. An
attempt to break their center war then ordered,
and part of Hancock’s men were sent to support
Warren. In the movement onr right was also ad
vanced, and tbe move was begun. .In the after
noon tbe enemy, were driven into their entrench
ments In' gallant style, and' Upton’s brigade, of
.Wright’s 6th corps, got into tbe enemy's nfie pits,
capturing twelve guns and about, one thousand
prisoners. r ,
Not being supported by other portions of tho
line, who were unable the'ealn the Hue of works In
their front, this brigade was forced to evacuate Its
advanced positions, leaving the captured gnus, al
ter spiking them, hnt bringing off all tho prisoners.
The enemy Buffered heavy losses during the fight,
onr diclls falling into their works, and onr Infantry
delivering their fire with remarkable precision.
Gen. Rice was wounded in tbe thigh early in the
engagement, and died after his leg had been ampu
tated, ...
Gen. Stevenson is also reported killed.' He com
manded a brigade in Burnside’s corps.
Onr losses were very heavy,
Gen. Gibbons’ division has lost, altogether, over
' a thousand men.
' Gen. Eoblnßon’a division, After losing both it'
General officers and about 2,500 men, bad no Gen*
oral to command it, and it has been broken np and
distributed among other, divisions of the sth
corps.....
. No division of the army fought betUt than this
one. ;
Z About 6 o’clock p. m. a report was brought to
Gen. Meade that a flank increment was being made
on outright, and the Headquarters being in that
direction they packed up and. moved toward tbe
centre in rather a hasty manner,. Tbe report turn*
ed out to be false. At 1 o’clock on Tuesday‘a Ire
raged in the woods between the two armies, at all
points in tbe line,'and a large number of wounded
of both parties were lying on the spot. Our men,
In attempting to get their coinrides off the field,
were fired on by tbe rebel skirmishers and driven
off, and the poor sofiferers had to be left to penah In
tbe flames.*
Tbe Jtarr* Washington special says, dispatches
are jnstreceircd from tbe army dated late yester
day, stating that Gen' Grant has won another vic
tory. v
Leo’s whole left is crushed, and we hare captured
a whole brigade.
Gen. Bnmstde chased Gen. Swell nearly three
mflee.
The World's spedal says Gen. Grant massed
near4oo pieces of artillery against Lee’s position,
at Spotsylvania Court Honae, on Tueaday, and fired
for two hours, when the assault was finally order
ed.. The assaulting column met with bnt feeble
resistance. : * .
Lee’s line did not waver until just before the
doee pi the battle; then It left back, and we gain
ed conalderable ground.

My dispatch yesterday afternoon left tbe army
in the midst of a terrible battle-as terrible for the
tune it lasted, as aay in the recent aeries of fights.
Heretofore the contests have been invariably with
musketry; In this bat tle the roll of artillery was as
fierce, Incessant, and almost as di>afan‘iwg uat

‘•The battle continued till night, and darkness
dosed the sanguinary etn«m;e. Our army added

everything evinced a determination to make tho
day one of decisive results. Very active skirmish
ing all the forepart of tho day, merged at length ‘
into a general engagement. As boors wore on It
waxed hotter and hotter, and fiercer and sharper
was the rattle ot musketry, and loader the roar of
artillery.
The most determined and persistent effort which
has been made since the commencement of the
flgbt, in this locality, was made to turn our right.
Charge alter charge was made hy the enemy. Onr
men repulsed each charge. At length theSth corps
drove the enemy,, compelling him to fall back into
h!a third line of defenses. The effect of this re
pulse was apparent. Behel dead, at points, lay

we made a general assan’t at 7 o'clock. It was
tho most magnificent and terrible one of the war.
The batteries, through the cutting down of somo
trees, were placed in very advantageous position*,
as likewise the batteries of other corps. Simul
taneously these cannon hurled their murderous
missiles Into the ranks ol the enemy accompanied
bra General volley of musketry, and from this hour
till dark the combat deepened, and night left us
victors on every side, •
Onr lines were now advanced, and we had taken

The flghtopenedallaJongths lines. Longs treat's
corps, under Hill, held the rebel right, resting
about two miles northeast of Spotteriyanla, and
Grant pitted Burnside's 9th corps against it. At
a given moment, later In the afternoon, Burnside
prcdpltated his entire command, except the color
ed troops, upon the rebel front, driving and com*
pletely crushing It, capturing three rebel brigades *
and four pieces of cannon. The light continued
with a ferodty never before witnessed, until nine

produced In this war.

Our informant talked with some of tnem before

terrible fighting.
The battle cessed at 9 o’clock, onr line bavins

conflict, the entrenchments held by Longatrset’a
forces at the beginning.
This (Wednesday) morning tho fight was re
newed up to 30 o'clock, at which time Burnside
held the same position. Lee’s army was then con
tracted into a sort of Horso shoe form In and about
the town of Spottsylvanla Court House.
Gen. Stevenson Is killed.
Tbs New York Evening Post's Washington spec

The World has a rumor from Washington tbat
ihc 10th and 18tb Army Corps, (Boiler's command)
on tho north bank of tho James river, will be sent
to reinlorce the Army of the Potomac—that they
comprise too small an army to capture Richmond,
and are too numerous to permit being loft off the
fie?*.
The TTorfcTy special says: “Grant massed near
ly 400 pieces of artillery against Lee's position at
Bpottsylvanla Court House on Tuesday, and fired
for two hours, when tho assault was ordered, and
the advancing column met with but J feeble resist
ance. Lee's line did not waver until just before
the close of the battle, then tell bade, and we gain

“Correspondents from Gen. Butler's army con
tains nothing later ol tbat General's operations
than was announced In his recent dispatch."
1 he SaxUd’s special says:
“On Tuesday, Gibbons*and Barlow's divisions
were withdrawn from the sonth bank of the Po
river, the latter division closely followed by the
enemy, who were checked by our artillery posted
along the ridge commanding the river.
“Early in the day, the whole army began to
straighten out In line of battle for a renewal of the
engagement. Skirmishing was kept up during
this time between the advanced Hoes of the two
armies, the enemy bestirring himself as though be
intended offensive operations. Our line was term
ed with the 2d corps on tho ncht, the sth In the
centre, and the oth on the left, with Burnside’s
corps la the rear of our left tor the protection of
our Immense trains to act ass reserve in any
emergency.
The country here Is quite rolling, studded with
proves of pines and hardwoed, and affording much
better facilities for handling troops, and tho use of
artillery, than about the Wilderness.
The enemy during'the night, strengthened bis
formidable position with rifle pits, breast works,
barricades, Ac., rendering it stronger than any
'line of defense occupied by him since leaving his :
earthworks on the Rspldao.
Tbns matters stood nntll £ir Into the afternoon,'
when the fighting became quite sharp at Intervals
at different points, but without anything definite.
Five o’clock was fixed upon for the grand assault.
General orders announcing the successes of Sher
man In the West, and of Butler on James River,
were read to the troops, producing tho wildest ex
citement, and as the hour approached for the at
tack, the enthusiasm became almost ungovern
able. ties. Grant, surrounded by hie staff, Gens.
Meade, Hancock and Warren, were all stationed
on eminences within sight ol each other, while the
vast columns of our army slowly gathered them
selves together for the great struggle.
Just as the attack was about too© made, the en
«dt advanced on our right, threatening to press
back tbat portion of our line. Discontinuing for a
time, the plan of assault, our troops were hurried
to Barlcw, to support the right, but Barlow suc
ceeded In checking the rebels, lending back bis re
inforcements with the word that he hadmen enough
and to spare.
Half-paill) was then fixed upon for the assault.
Watches were compared by the corps commanders,
wbo finally separated with orders to attack at an
appointed time.
At the appointed hour, slmnltaneoasly with the
fire ofthc twelve signal guns, the whole front ad
vanced with chrers from the whole line. Themove
meet was Indescribably grand. A portion of the
forex s moved Is solid column, while others advanc
ed In the usual order of battle, the whole army mov
ing tocethcr, and yet each command fighting its
own battle
The whole rebel line opened a most murderous
fire, against' which our Hoes irresistibly swept,
driving the enemy slowly back from his positions,
capturing nearly 2,000 prisoners and three pieces ot
artillery, The latter, however, were retaken by the
rebels before the close of the engagement.
Kiebt dosed the battle withoor forces occupying
the feld. The loss is heavy, but. Judging from the
kibtd and wounded left m out hands, is much less
than the enemy’s, .who fought to the lav, our
troops bayoneting their men In their rifle-pits,
and forcing them, by hand-to-hand conflicts, to
yield.
Gen. Bice was mortally woonded, and died under
the amputation of bis leg. Onr loss In promiuent
officers is great, bnt the lateness of the boor pre
vents a collection of the names.
Wasotkgton, May 12. —Accounts from the army
cor cur that there was heavy fighting on Tuesday,
and that at ahont 5 o’clock in the afternoon an at
tack was made upon the rebel batteries. It ts
stated that after tho assault continued for some
time, and it being found that the rebel batteries
could not be earned without probably a great
sacrifice of Hie, the eflbrt was for the time aban
doned.
It is reported here that Gen. Warren was wound
ed on Tuesday, and died on bts way to Frcderlcks
bum. The rumor is repeated and generally be
Uevcd.
The fighting on Tuesday afternoon Is said to have
been very severe, as heavy artillery was brought
into action on both sides. The resole, so far as
known, was to onr advantage. The rebels attempt

supplies, but were driven off with loss.
Toe fighting was renewed yestarday.
