Wo have already indicated the nature of
•the grand strategic movement of the army
•of the Potomac, which occupied the larger
. share of last week, and is now completed,
being no less than the turning of Lee's right
Hank, thus rendering wholly useless his de
fensive position on the South Anna River. ;
It has brought our forces within fif
teen miles of Richmond, with nothing like
a general engagement since leaving Spoils} 1-
vaula. Grant Is now within striking dis
tance of the rebel capltol, and has bis new
base of supplies ut \% cat Point, on the Tork
liver, at the mouth of the Pamunkcr leaving
r. very short line of laud communications.
Our dispatches of Sunday night give
very full details of this masterly stroke o*
m’.lilajT fibril. There is ©very reason for
4-x.ccurogcmcnt In the present aspect. Not
that It avoids the great task of opening the
jiuU-B to the Capital, but it brings it to our
army on better finds tt stronger
tud more eager than to accept the
ciitrc ©flattie, and trust to consequences.
2.cc must now fight before the works of
Richmond, .pr enter them to meet the fate of
Pemberton and his army, paroles excepted.
Never before has Richmond been in equal
danger. Doubtless ere this, tbe chief con
spirators and their archives of treason have
been hurried away to escape its fate. Grant
has done wclL His armies have shown that
they have heretofore lacked only leaders.
The end of the campaign in Virginia cannot
be for distant, if we may trust the tokens
that arc now so promising.
The arrival of a large force of Banka* re
cent army at Vicksburg, on nineteen trans
ports, on their way up the river, means just
this, that the scattcmtion policy is cone by.
IVe arc now to strike strong deadly blows at
the vitals of the rebellion, and the extremi
ties arc to be let alone. When the heart is
dead, the limbs will perish without further
rgcucy of onrs. Gen. A. J. Smith and his
command are wanted elsewhere, and arc on
ibcir way thither.
Prom Georgia, nothing; decisive. Sher
man’s Hfnk movements have compelled
Johnston to gather Mraeelfnplor a battle,
as Grant drew out Lee in tbe Wilderness, and
he Is consequently throwing np works near
Dallas where the roads to Atlanta fork,
f: uerman will give him little lime to perfect
works, and wc have no fears for the result
w hen cur Western hoys move upon them.
From Butler wc Lear nothing. Hels prob
ably still lu Lis den, hurling back, the rebels,
bleeding and crippled In their vain attempt
lo cislodgc him and carrying out Ms part of
iLe programme.

The European steamer which left New
Turk on Saturday took out over $429,090 in
M'tcU- to jiay.for European nonsense. Is It

Some Delaware friends cf Gen. Grant have
purchased the celebrated gold medal present
ed to Washington by Congress, and known

lent head of the Jhnr ihrj-i.T,nnd the reverse,

medal, we believe, was struck In France.
There is a flattering prospect for a speck
of war with the savages ot the Minnesota
•eouuliy, and that Gens. Sibley and Sully will
Lure their hands full during the summer
campaign -among the countrymen of Hia
It is on eloquent testimonial of the faith of
the j-eoplc lu the Government and Its securi
ties, that the receipts from the ten-forties are
announced to be sufficient to meet the requi
sitions of the Treasury, and this, in spite of
r( bcJ and copperhead plottings,to overthrow
it. The popular confidence is unshaken. Like
Grant, the people will fight it out oa this line
If it take all summer.
The Sloax Indian War—TZic British
AuilioriUe* take a Stand* *
[Special Dispatch to the Chicago Tribune.]
St. Paul, May 29,16 M,
. Gcu. Sibley is in receipt of dispatches from a
iml’-lireed scout unwed Gabriel Benvill, which, if
can be relied on, ore of great importance.
•"‘ln-* v ere written nt the scout's camp, above Fort
-Abercrombie, and dated the 14th and istb respect
ricly. On the Kiln BenvilJ writes that there are
V.IOO lodges of Zc ten and Yankton Sioux, en
luptd on the Missouri at the month ol Heart
V.mr. with the avowed intention of attacking
: t uimtaats and emigrants going across the plains.
A> -ome point lower down the river a small party
vuuar-ptd who arc desirous of making peace
with ii*- whites in order to enable them to declare
w.-.r u'.utt the ‘Winncbagoes. This must be a
.?>;ll;2ant stroke of Indian strategy. On tbesno
cttolngday, the some man writes that “ all the Da-
I-otiilis” (Sioux) as be expresses It, are assembling
over tlio lino at Turtle Mountain.
Tfie British have advised the Indians to assemble
th<-re, tcl'lng them If they are over the line they
null Jjc protected the same as British subjects.
*lhcy advise tbem to remain nntfl our forces reach
J)c> i}'f Lake, when a deputation will be sent over to
riuelui pence. If that is granted our men must
?<.12 Jlion where they will be located, and then the
Indians arc to return over the lino and hold a con*
tultatiou, and it they conclude to subsist on thf
the offer will be accepted.
This is the magnanimous plan for closing np (h«
‘-•“ioux v«r f and eald to be gotten up by cousin
•J«>l.uiy BalL TThcn Major Hatch was at Pembina
tin- British antlKcliies gave bun permission to cross
tlu line, and that they should so soon change their
»ij» ire policy seems almost incredible.
ilenvill is a very reliable man, but he may have
Iv. n mtried by statements of the other scouts. At
all events It is questionable whether the British
residents bate Invited the Indians to their terri
tory. Besides the two dispatches cannot both be
coircct, as in the first, 2,100 lodge? are reported at
H.o mouth of Heart Eivcr, and in the second, ail
:irc assembling at Turtle Mountain.

Thursday, May 2C—9 a. m. f
It turned ouf In the course of yesterday that
culy the filth ccrpe. forming tbe right and right
centre, advanced their lines from the immediate
v iciiiily of North Ansa River lor about two miles.
This morning tbe ngbt sixth corps rests south of
rnd along the Use of the Virginia Central Railroad
within half's ml’c ot the line of that road. Three
divisions oi the fifth and sixth corps were engaged
all day yesterday, in destroying the railroad track
of the Virginia Central Railroad for about ten
miles, burning bridges, ties and culverts, and
bending the rails. The road was ablaze for the
sided distance all the afternoon.
Only one divition, Crittenden’s of Burnside's
corps, crossed ct Oxford ford, tills one joined
resting Its own lelt on the river. Por
ter's division crossed at Chesterfield bridge, and
joint £ Hancock. Wilcox's division remained on
the north side of the river, between Warren's left
and Hancock's right, a position which would be
dangerous if Geni Grant had contemplated an ad*
vancc directly to the South Anna.
Gen. Crittenden's division, after crossing, had a,
sharp engogcmenfwhllc securing a position on
the south hank. The advance, consisting of Gen.
LeCdic's brigade, forded the river about 3p. m.
The rcplE'.cnts immediately climbed cp the bluffs,
went Into line, and advanced with skirmishers In
.front. They soon met the enemy's sklrmisberaajd
rupldlv drove them upon tbeir brigade,
continuing up hills and down ravines at the dou
ble quick, the skirmishers firing all the time.
They drove the rebel brigade nearly a mile Into the*
entrenchments covering their main line; they ap
proached to an open cornfield within a hundred
yards of the latter, when several rebel batteries
open upon them with grape and cannister.
Gen. Lcddlc ordered his men to lie down and
shelter themselves as well as them could, and sent
back to Gen. Crittenden for support. The brigade
maintained its position, under a most severe fire,
for nearly two hours, when Gen. Lcddie received
orders to retire towards the river, Gen. Crittenden
baring ascertained from Gen. Crawford, whose
division bad moved over from the centre and was
in line close to the point of crossing, the heavy
force and strong position of the enemy.
Gen. Leudle bad intended to attack the enemy
as soon as he should have received assistance. He
bed hardly commenced falling back when he dis
covered the enemy advancing upon both his flanks
In two strong bodies, formed in three lines each,
end consisting, as stated by prisoners, ol the
whole of Wilcox's division of Hill's corps.
Ibe enemy advanced rapidly, fir jig volley alter
volley, and oor brigade barely escaped being en
v eloped on both sides. It reached the position se
lected in the morning, close to the river, by Gen.
Crittenden about sunset, when the enemy with- -
drew- The loss in the brigade in killed, wounded
and missing Is as follows:

tux situation.
Alter three weekaof marching and fighting, here
then is, the Army of the Potomac, sixty miles from
lie starting point north of the Hapidan, safely
planted on the south of the North Anna Hirer,
wiibiu twcnty-fivemiles ot the objective point
which for three yean has been the goal of ah the
Mcod and etrngglcs ui this army. -The experience
of the two wet-ke w» spent berore tbh lines of
bpottaylvoum brought me conrlctlo a that that po
sition touid not be carried save oy an expenditure
of blood out of all proportion to tne results of uuy
victory tliut could be achieved there. To have been
able to Inna an a decisive engagement there
would undoubtedly have been greatly to our ad
vantage, for we had then a Irene of operations
tucusy ulstsccc of our proximate base, Frode
ricksbcig. while the enemy was at a long remove
from his. In there relations, ft battle that woa:d
have effectually broken Lee’s army would nave
placed ns in a most advantageous position for de
rive v it in the retreat that would have, followed. I
illicit it was with some regret that General Grant
was eventually compelled to abandon the hope
of delivering encu a battle. Hay by day
the CtDiTminuicg General continued to throw out
imimd the left, with the bopo pf overlapping and
breaking in the rebel right wing, and from occupy
ing, as we did at first, a line two or three miles
north and extending nve or six miles wert of Spoil
-sylvnnls Court House, we finally camo to bold a
line running almost due east from that point and
about four miles in extern, our lett resting at Mat
lapony Church. But, jest iu proportion ns we
s'retchcd toward the left, Lee extended his right to
couionc to our line, and intrenched himself till
finally he came to have a front praniealiy impreg
nable. Nothing, in fact, can be imagined more for
midable then the improvised works which each
army bra ita.ncd to cosetruct to cover Itself withal,
A lajer of stout breast high, frstno
work cn which a th-.ck parapet of earth is thrown
up. In front of this lino the timber for seven!
hundred yards is felled, makingan elaborately In
terlaced ahatlls. Imagine one, two or three such
lines along the front; plant bemad each a llao of
battle; rake obstructed approaches with a lavish
supply ot artillery, ano pvsee in front of all several
Hues ol rlfic pits, and you will form a conception,
though still an inadequate one, of the task Imposed
upon an army when an attack is proposed on the
tntmj’s waits. *
Yet In several instances, as yon know, and as all
the world will some day leant with wonder, the
llluctiious valor ol the army of tue Potomac has
plucktd victory from these ia.vs ol bell, and bay
oneted an unflinching foe in th t very entrance of his
Advices from day to day hare informed you of
the difierem attempts that were made to carry tbc
enemy’s lines successively on tho right, the centre
and the left; of the partial success achieved, and
of our not lew repulses. Of our successes, the
most complete was undoubtedly that won by Han
cock on the momtmr of the lath tost, when hfck
corps struck the famous salient on the right of the*'
rebel line, and captured nearly the entire division
holding it. Doubtless coal Jwe bare Known in ad
vance precisely what the upshot of that attack
would be, our assailing force, instead of being pre
pared merely with a view of carrying tbc position,
would have teen formed so as to tmsu the success
to its consequences, and the whole rebel army
: might there have been doubled up, routed, and de
stroyed. No each golden opportunity again pre
sented itself, and, after seeking U in blood-bought
reconnaissances on our ng'jt and centre, and alter
a loss of some: 0,000 killed and maimed men had
attested the thoroughness ot the effort to secure a
decisive victory, the head of the army resolved to
force the enemy’s abandonment of his lines, with
the determination of seekiag elsewhere the arena
for a new trial by battle. . . . . „ ' .
With Ibis view It was, needful, first of all, that
the army should accumulate such supplies as would
allow it to cut loose from its old base, and enable
It to advance far enough to open a new and more
accessible one. This don?, It was very certain
that, by simply moving on the left of our trout, we
would so threaten Lee’s communications as to
compel him to evacuate his fortified line. In other
words, we would effect a turning movement on the
rebel right flank. True to expectation, when th?
rebels, on Friday, discovered the corps of Han*
cock, which the day before had been feeling their
extreme left, shifted over to their extreme right,
Lee began to look oat for hU lines.
On Friday night, May 2'th, Hancock took up tho
march, advanced due east to Masstponax Church,
then diverged on pnepf the main roads leading dne
southward from Fredericksburg, and continued on
dnrmg the nl-dit and tho following day and on Sat
urday evening, May SJst, occupied Bowling Green,
with tbe head of his column at HUTord, distant
from the point of starting seventeen tubes. He
met no enemy.
On the very same night on which Hancock start
ed, Leo began to withdraw. In the dead of the
nlihr, l o'clock a. m n of Saturday, the rebel rev
eille was heard to beat, and the bead of Long
street's column, which was assigned the advance
in retreat, filed southward. Here then begins a
grand race of two armies, similar to that which they
ran from the Wilderness to Spottsylvanla. • A
glance at the map will show us which has the bet
ter chance. It will he observed, if the examina
tion be made with an adequate topographical map
In tbe hand, that tbe rebel front at Spottsylvanla
covers the direct and heetroutcleadlngsouthward,
namely tbe telegraph road with the roads converg
ing on and radiating from this main line. On the
other band, it was a necessity of the proposed ope
ration that we should bear well to the eastward.
Jt Is a recognized maxim that the party executing
a flanking movement exposes his own Hank, finch ■
a inanteovre. In the Cicc ol a vigilant. and vigorous
opponent is always a dangerous one. It had,
therefore, to be done both cautiously and by a
route somewhat circuitous, lee, as we know by
experience, is both vigilant and-vigorous. Tbe
former • quality was proved by the promptitude
with which he met the advance of our flanking
column by a corresponding movement to the rear.
The latter was maoe manifest In another way next
Hancock’s 2d corps, as we have seen, had with
drawn during the night of Friday. Warren's 6th
corps set oat early on Saturday morning, foilow
irg loreome distance over the same route pursued
by Hancock. About the same time Ewell’s corps,
oftbe rebel armr, appears to have fallowed Long
aircet. In the meantime our old position near
Spottsylvanla was still held by gnch portions of
onr front as the corps of Ueua. Bornside'a 9th, and
covered. At4lp.ro. Saturday, those
who held position on the left of tbe Gth, withdrew,
and the remaining force of tbe rebels, Hill’s corps,
fancying that the 6th was also retiring, left their
works, came up dlreetlv In Wright's front and
attacked. They succeeded In breaking bis skir
mish line in one place, bnt Wright opened a heavy
artillery fire upon them, which checked their ad
vance. Hill committed an error in making the at
tack In front, for. haa he creased the river a little
above, be would have struck the right flank of the
6th corps, uncovered by the withdrawal of War
ren, and would have bad an enfilading fire on
Wright, which would have been dim cult to with
In addition to this tbe assault was made]with
much persistence, and was probably designed sim
ply to develop our actual force left. Daring tbs
night, Wright withdrew. Gill did tbe same, and
the works of Spottsylvania ceased to bo tbe object
of cither attack or defense. They remain now as
parts of the narallelp, that from the Rapldan up to
onr present front, stand as monuments of tbe most
desperate campaign in history.

Ttc two armies ouce fairly ou tbo march, thofr
operatlCEß belong to the domain of etaatery, which
deate with the movement ofnrmfca out oi si.-ht of
each other. The first obvious goal (a the North
Anna, north of which It was not deemed at all
probable that Lee wouUlnot attempt to mike a
stand. From the first, however. It waa a matter of
ccricinty that the enemy would reach it la advance
of us; for, hating possession of the tclcgraob road,
he moved on on interior line.
On Saturday night Hancock bivouacked at Mil
ford. The Ctn followed thuild over tbo same road
until striking Gutney Station, when ic divergld to
the tight (that is, westward), crossed the Maiapo

Returning the advance on Monday morning, May
2Sd,a march of a few hoars brought the head of
«ur column so near to the North Auna that opera*
lions passed from the dominion of strategy into
tic tactical question of effecting the passage of
the river, always a difficult otic when vigorously
icelsJed. That it would he so resisted was natural
to suppose, for the reason that if the enemy pro*
pcerd making a stsndon the South Anna,'he would
wish them to gain nil the time possible tn order to
establish himself well in hi* position, and also fur
the reason that the North Anna covers the Virginia
Central Railroad, which here runs the general
direction of the stream, and hot from one to three
miles south, of It. Even if Lee should be com*
ptlled to sacrifice this important line of communi*
cotion, be would; still, It was reasonable to argue,
attempt tohold it until after the rebet detichmoats

In this anticipation wc were not disappointed.
Not only did he contest the passage. but made one
of his mrccht assaults, with a view of crushing

The head ot the column of the Cth Corps, Grif

was poured In, and tbe enemy opened Irom three
butteries a very heavy cannonade. Griffins divi
sion, though without works, successfully resisted
the attack, and repulsed it with great slaughter.
Our men, m fact, served them with the same
treatment they bad themselves received in the
ncmeroas attacks they have been compelled to
make, and illustrated afresh the enortnons advan
tage the defensive has in .such a coun
try aa this. They shot as they lay
low, covered themselves wen, allowed the
rebels to approach, and. when the whites ofthe.r
eyes were visible, raked their line with witherin'*
volleys. Finding that he was gaining nothing,and
lost very heavily, it appears that the rebel com
mander, while continuing to hold three of his brig
ades in Griffin’s fronr, detached OUonci Browu’s
South Carolina brigade to ciTcct a detour, and
make an assault on our flank. The mode m
which he made this I have from Col. Brown him
self, who, not halt an hour afterward, wai a pris
oner in our bonds. Marching by column up the
railroad for some distance, he wheeled by i!i« right
in line ot battle, and full upon Cutler, who, us wc
hove stun, was formed on the right of Griffin.
Cutler’s division had not yet got into position
when Brown attacked with much vigor, its left
save way, and the whole command was consider
hiy broken and throw n into much confual m.
This, of course, uncovered the right of Griffin’s
Unc, held 02 wo have seen, by Ayers’ brigade, and
exposed liira to the eminent danger of having his
dank turned. To avoid this the right was contused
somewhat, and Gee. GnQln threw forward three
regiments of Bartlett’s brigade, which arrived just
In time to save the exposed flank from being
turned. In the re-establlshment of the Hue oc
curred oac of those odd encounters which occas
ionally happen in complicated actions of battle.
One of Bartlett's regiments, the 83d Pennsylvania,
Lieut. Col. McCoy, commanding, In marching up
by the flank, that is in column, not in Hue of bat
tle. ran pmmp against Brown’s line, watch was
moving to follow up its success against our right.
It was one of those critical situations ia which a
moment will decide—tbe decision in fast depend
ing on who. should gain the advantage of the
first volley.' Rapid os a dash McCoy swungtus
forward companies lot j line' and got the
first fire. One of McCoy’a mm seized the rebel
commandci'by.lhe collar anduru. ged him in. Tho
Stt poured in a .voder on the enemy’s fiank and
roar, and the whole rebel brigade made oil In dis
order. The repulse of the rebels was most com
plete.* During the engagement the following morn
ing, not less tliaiuone thousand prisoners were
taken. In addition to this, tbe rebel loss In killed
and wounded was very heavy, though Its precise
cxt\ nt could not be ascertained, as during the ul-jht
tUc enemy made a forcible attack on our pickets,
and, under cover of this, succeeded in carrying off
their dead and wounded. Our own. loss was incon
siderable. Griffin’s division, which bore tho brunt
of the attack, ma> have lose 200; Cutler about 130:
while tbe locs ot Crawford’s division, waich hold
tbe left, and whose skirmish line alone was en
gaged, w as but trifling.
Ail things consico.'cd, this may jusßtfbo regard
ed as one of the must bcaitifu’ detached engage
ments of the campaign. Tax ug into account lha
very important results hanging upon It, It folly
merits tbe praise accorded to It by the commanding
General in a despatch sent to Gen. Warren the
evening alter the action, in which Gen. Meade con
gratulates him and his gallant corps upon tbe
nandsome manner ra which tbo enemy's attack
was repulsed. Although tbe commanding General
extenus praise to the whole corps, tho other divis
ions will willingly acknowledge ttat It belongs
xDorepanlcnlarly to the let Division (Griffith's)
which received and repulsed tbe mala attack ov
the enemy. Especial credit is duo to the 2d Brig
ade oftbls division, commanded by Col. S. Welt
zer, though equal eulogy is claimed by tbe Brigade
of Bartlett, which so promptly checkmated the
Qankiag maneuver of Brown.
Passing now from the position of Warren on
ihc right to that of Hancock’s left, we foond Ids
corps encaged at the same time with the Slh, Un
like Warren, who passed the rear unopposed, he
bad to carry his crossing against the severest op
position, as I have already mentioned. Hancock's
point of passage was the Chesterfield, or count?,
bridge, half a mile above the railroad bridge.
Here the rebels had a strong position and a tiU de
conf.whlch had been taken before a passage coaid
ho effected. Six or eight hundred yards north of
Anna is a long croek, which cans parallel with the
river and empties into it erst of the railroad
bridge. These streams, therefore, form a species
of island, and it Is here the rebels have
prepared a position to oppose any cross
ing. Hear the bridgo-haai Is an extend
ed redan with a wet ditch In front. The gorge is
swept by rifle pits In the rear. On the opposite or
southern bank of the river Isa smaller work and
other rifle-pits, while the southern bank commands
the northern, and was sweet by tho rebel artil’cry.
These works were built a* year .ago, immediately
alter the battle of ChaocellorvlUe- Tho island Is a
perfectly fiat and barren plain, and across this it
•svaenWefissty to advance in order to cany the
bridge. The position was held by McLaw’s divi
sion of Xongslrcct’s corps. To Gen. Banning a di
vision of Hancock’s corps was assigned the glori
ously perilous task of carrying It. _
On the left was the brigade of CoL Egan; on his
right, Pierce's brigade and Qen.Mohl’s brigade; on -
the right of Pierce, the 4th brigade—the Excelsior,
commanded by Col. BlaisdeU, of the HthHassa
chneetts, came nn partly in the rear, its left to the
right of the redan. . if ,
To cover the assault, three sections of artillery
were put in position, and replied to the artillery fire
of the enemy. At the loft of Bimey’s division was
Barlow's division, the left of which connected with
the right of Gibbon’s division, while Tyler's heavy
artillery division was held 1 1 reserve.
An hour before the sundawn of Monday the as
saulvwas begun, and roost brilliantly executed by
Eiruev's command, which swept across the open
space at double quick, under a storm of artillery
and volleys of musketry. Two regiments of the
Excelsior Brigade, the 71stand 7.d New York first
reached the redan, the garrison of which ran pns
clpltalely as our men advanced in tine with fixed
bayonets, and came sweeping along and making
foothold In the parapet with their muskets. The
brave fellows climbed up ond simultaneously
planted their colors on the rebel stronghold.
Thirty rebels, unable to get away in time, were
captured in the ditch. The total loss in this bril
liant exploit, the rapidity and daring of which as
tonished and paralysed the rebels, old not exceed •
abnndred men, and secured ns the possession of
the bridge across which a portion of Hancock’s
corps Immediately crossed and held the bridge
head during the night. The work of Monday,
therefore had secured ub the passage of the North
Anna at two different points, and night found tho
whole of the sth corps across at Jericho Ford, and
abortion of the 2d corps-across the Chesterfield
Yesterday (Tees day, the 24th) was mainly em
ployed In passing over the rest of the army, pulp
ing ont our lines, and securing our position. Tta*
held by Gen. Warren was happily oae of great
■ strength being a points! which the Anna masca a
bcnd r ln the form of a h<vee-ihoe, ttur aflordmg a
btcure “point d'npou." ■• r both fiin&s. Eiriy
vestcxdny lb** wbde of the Htb corps (Wright's)
filed over at this point, took position in the rear of
the stb, and a portion o: U aft rward relieved part
' oi Warren’s front. II us cock on bis front waa not
able to make such rapid progress, oalvsuch por
tions of the command as had forced a passage oa
the previous night being across the river, Tbe
rebels still held the hank, ride-pits and command
ing heights on tbe southern bank. Iu the aitor
noon, however, Crawford's division of Warren's
corps extended to tile left to make a diversion Id his
favor, enraged tho enemy, and enabled the whole
ofßlrney’s division to pass over. The remainder
of tbe Id corps speedily followed,
Meanwnite Burnside's corps still remained on
the aonth bank of the river, but tho operations of
ycfitoidav evenlncbave swept the rebels from oar
whole front, the Oth Corps was able this morning
to make the passage at Oxford, midway between
tbe points of crossing’ cf Hancock and Warren.
During Monday nlahtJaancock’s left extended to
the railroad bridge', wo holding tbe northern and
the encmv the southern. The rebels, however, had
prepared It forburnlnu, and daring the night it was
