Our advices from Grant, up to the present
Writing (2. A- M.), are of the most favorable
•character, and indicate that the struggle on
which the fate of Richmond hangs cannot be
Mar distant.
Our Indianapolis special dispatch gives a
ruble proof of the temper that possesses the
Army of the Potomac under the leadership
of Grant. It Is not they who are changed.
These brave fellows would have followed
him ns gladly as now.
We publish a highly Interesting review ol
the situation in Georgia, by dispatches and
correspondence, ah |g going, on well, uufl
the rebellion is. being subjected to a very
•crushing pressure at both ends. With onr
arms victorious at Atlanta and Richmond,
%ht last ditch cannot too soon be looked for.
Havana correspondence gives more in de
tail than was before reported, the capture
of Montl-Christi by the Spanish troops. The
Attack took place on the 17th. The fight was
n.bardone, and the victory, well disputed,
beneath a blistering son, was not achieved
without some loss; the Spaniards haring a

conviction in the Federal Courts as a slaver,
and his subsequent escape from the Boston

1 A correspondent of the New York Tima,
with Gen. Butler’s army, says the excitement
of skirmishing seems to become a muni*
with some of the soldiers. A man named
Parker, of the!4BthNew Yorkrcglment, who
was afflicted with this singular mama, got
many yards in advance of the other skirmish
ers, when he saw a grayback, whose enthusi
asm in the same gentle direction must have
been equal to his own. Grayback saw Par
ser also. They simultaneously raised their
pieces and fired, and both fell dead, shot in
the forehead. Parker’s body was bronglit
One of the letters captured in the rebel
mull lately intercepted in Maryland, was
from an officer in Lee’s army. It was written
just before Grant commenced hie ad

war cry in charging negro troops.”
It seems to be decided upon to pnt upon
the market, for 6ale to the highest bidder,

Captain Logan, of the 20th Indiana, is in town,
having participated in the desperate hollies of
Grant's army and been severely wounded in the
bead. He bring* interesting accounts of the vim
of the men. When they first crossed the Bapldan,
the men felt gloomy. They acknowledged Grant's
bravery and strategy in Ms Western battles and
capture of Vicksburg, hut said he had never fought
Lee. After tbe first two days' fight, the whole
feeling of the Army of- the Potomac changed.
They felt as If a General was leading them. It
was not the et tbnslasm that the honeyed words and
brilliant staff of McClellan brought oat after he
had fonght a halting battle, but the sincere convic
tion of sensible men that an earnest man, who
would not halt, led them.
Tbe determination that the men now show is
like the faith of Cromwell's Ironsides. They

Favorably—incidents of the

siys: “News received direct from Kingston, Ga.,
by telegraph, says Sherman arrived at Babas last
Saturday, and pushed reinforcements to McPher
son, who was to reach Atlanta by next Saturday,
unless a heavy force of rebels was met on the way.
At last accounts he was at Sweet Water town, and
driven the rebels across Powder and Nlckajack
creeks, and got possession of the bridge across the
Chattahoochee, twelve miles from Atlanta.
“The main army under General Thomas was
advancing, and occupied Marietta on Monday,
taking 400 prisoners, and a railway train of sick
and wounded rebels, with several cannon and
small arms. It is believed that Atlanta will be in
onr possession before next Sunday. Johnston,
with fragments of his disorganized army, b"g
crossed the Chattahoochee, and was felling back to

We have bad a conversation with a very In

were in fine health, buoyant, resolute and confi

ston’s army was still felling oack, the bulk of it
being then at Atlanta, and the cavalry six tntlea
this side ol that place. It waa the general opinion
that it would be wholly impossible for Johnston
to make a successful stand there oral any other
point, as onr numbers were sufficient to flank him
wherever he might go.
A large portion of the country through which
we are pasting is deserted by its inhabitants. In
Caetviile, scarcely a family is left. The people
have boon seized with a panic in some neighbor
hood?, and fled farther South to escape the expect
ed fury of the Invading army. The slaves nave
mostly been run off South, except a few aged and
decrepit once who have been left to starve by
their owners, after tolling for half a century with
out pay. There are consequently hardly any slaves,
low coming Into Gen. Sherman’s lines.
On kn Tuesday about noon, a wagon train, re
turning from Kingston, with a small guard, was
attached by a body or rebel cavalry, and fbrtr
wagons were captured. In a short time the guard
was reinforced and fifteen wjgous were retaken,
the rest having been destroyed* Several of our
soldiers were killed or captured.
A gentleman who has been perfectly familiar
with Atlanta and all the adjacent territory for
many years, also informed ns on Saturday that
there was no earthworks at Atlanta, unless they
have he*n made wltnm the past month. There
are a few batteries and a line of rifle-pits. De
serters who c&me in yesterday confirm this state
ment. Chattahooche Heights* which are right
mile? this side of Atlanta, have been well forti
fied near the point where the railroad crosses the
river. These fortifications will be of no avail,
however, a? they can easily be flanked.
The abandonment of Daiton cast a deep gloom
over man; rebels who had before been confident of
tncccss. It was expected that Johnston would
make a stubborn and triumphant resistance there,
if any place. Major Moore, of Johnston’s etofi,
said a few weeks ago ; “ If we can't hold Dalton,

an oppression so remorseless and horrible. Onr
informant said that he bad beard more treason
spoken in Nashville since his arrival, within the
space of a few day s, than he had heard in Atlanta
in as many months.
The region which General Sherman Is now ap
proaching is the great manufacturing region of
rebeldom. Tears before the rebellion, a large
amount of Northern capital was Invested in iron
furnaces and cotton factories, and it has been a
windfall to the rebels- The Atlanta rolling mill Is
said to be the largest in the Sooth. Last summer
it was sold to Frazer & Co., the notorious block
ade runners, who amassed a vast fortune at
Charleston, for $* 00,000. The capture of these
works will be disastrous to* rebeldom, for it will
be impossible to replace the machinery at other

London, May 7,1864. ■
The Conference has met and the British fleet has
anchored in the Downs. The oraclewho guards
the door of the temple of Janas has his hand- on the
knob, and If ha gives one torn the hinges- will
grate harsh thunder. The war between two mill
ions of Danes and two nations like Austria and
Prussia of course is no worst all compared to- the
dire conflict that wonld arise with Prance, Great
Britain and Italy, joined against the Dutchmen.-
The belief to-day la almost universal that there
mustbewar, ThetwoPowersontheDannheond
the Vistula eeem determined to pnsh matters to
extremes to exact their foil pound of fle a b. and
have Kncland drink the cop of degradation to the
very dregs.-
bbe is humiliated now as much as any Power
can be, and all Englishmen feel it most sensibly;
bat some spark ol honor will ho perceptible if nt
the eleventh boor the two great Powers of the
West step in and prevent the complete spoliation
of Denmark. Apparently a few days will bring
matters to a crisis; bat the shilly-shallying may
possibly continue lor a week or two.
The oracle of the Tnlleries is as inscrutable as
ever, and no one knows till the time ot action ar
rives wbat game he Is playing.
Of course France ana England will act together,
or rather England will not act without France,
though there is a remote possibility that France
and Italy may try conclusions with the Teutons,
leaving the Britisher to his motion, his shopkeep
ing ana his trade.
Austria and Prussia most he relying on the
Gnclphie Queen of Britain and her partiality to
her German oftspring and their matrimonial al
liances ; but it will be a hollow seed. The Queen
has said she will resign rather than consent to a
war with Prussia ;but she may doworse than
that—he deposed on the gronnd of the state of her
If there is a war, I do not see bnt the battles on
land will have to be fought without the aid of Brit
ish troops. The British army of one hundred and
dnj-elz thousand men la scattered over every part
of the world, and including the ornamental troops
around the royal palaces, there are not thirty thou
sand soldiers In the British isles. These are hard
ly sufficient for a coast guard. Bnt John Ball will
stud bis fleet to the where there Is not a
fort to attack, a one-horse seaport town to block
ade, or two floating tnbs to demolish. The part to
betaken by thenation that claimed to be the vic
tors at Waterloo will be about as important as that
of the bachelor who at picnics always famished
the folks and spoons, while others contributed the
eatables. The actual expense never fell on the
owner of the spoons.
While the British fleet lays off Copenhagen, Kiel.
Lubcck and the island of Alsen, France will, send
an army of three hundred thousand men to Cologne
and Coblenz, and Italy will march a large-force into
Vcnctia. These events transpiring. Garibaldi will
bare use for his new English sword before be takes
lime to feed bis coats.
The London Times says greater political events
and changes have already occurred in the north of
Europe, by the nsnpatlons of Austria and Prussia,
than were accomplished by the “ Holy Alliance’*
of 1815. The Time* goes on to say that these
things cannot be permitted. No ope believes they
would ever have transpired had tbeßrltfsb govern
ment shown a decided and firm front last October.
The half bully, half timid policy has really caused
this war. So mnch for haring a woman as a ruler.
My opinion Is now, as it has-been-from the first,
that we shall bare a big war.- The coarse to be
taken by Russia la as yet unseen.- Haying certain
projects to carry out, both on the Danuoa’and In
Circassia, the Czar will probably gu‘ against Prus
sia and Anstrla, bnt make the latter Power the re
cipient of the most of her bard knocks. One
thing la certain Prussia and Austria hare got to
giro op their pretentions and their conquests in
Denmark, or hear British thunder.. They will not
hack ont. The Prussians are eateaup with ego
tism and desire lor military glory ana conquest.
The country has won no military laurels and added
nothing to her territory since the days of Freder
ick the Great, and they envy the progress and ex
panslon of Russia, Austria, France, Italy and
Great Britain. Bnt madness li the star that con
trols Prussia. In this fight she mast lose.
