BATPBDAY, JUNE £5, 1804.
Oar new-B from Grants army gives the first
<fiue to the nature and object of the new
movement foreshadowed in onr dlspatehee a
tew days since. Our army south of Bleh
/ moud aims a blow at the defences of the
Tcbel Capital, and at the same time seeks to
■control and cut off its communications with
fihe sea-board States of the South.
3ence the movement direct on Petem
turg which Lee is now evidently
resisting with his whole army. Our forces
lave now swung their left wing stiff fhrther
Eonth, to cut off the line of railroad which
connects Petersburg with Weldon, North
Carolina, the great aorta of the Confeder
*cy. Hitherto there has been no heavy
fighting in this movement, but the enemy la
round to be vigilant and well posted, and
disposed to dispute every advance. There

Grant is being reinforced by the arrival of
Jreah troops dally, so we are advised by a
gentleman Just arrived from the front.
JSvciy available man is being sent him, and
he will probably have no lack of men for all
the purposes he has to carry ont,before Eich
mond. It is to supply the places of the
troops in the peats and theatres of opera
-tlons thus denuded and etrfpped,that the caff
Js imminent and pressing for more men.
President Lincoln’s purpose in visiting
Crant and his fellow comrades is like him
self honest, practical and straightforward,
niie President is convinced that the great
Peed of the present hour is for more men.
Be has so indicated his opinion to Congress,
Seconding the views of the Secre
tary of War, and the figures of the
irovost Marshal General But he is
confronted by the mere politicians at the
Capital, the timid Bcpnblicans and purblind
statesmen, who weigh national questions m
y the scale with their own Interests." These
tnen have persistently asserted that we
Lave men enough, and can get all we
peed by volunteering. The President took a
steamer and dropped down to the James
Hiver to see Grant and Meade and Butler,
Pud get their opinion, based on the actual ex
igencies of the war. We shall soon have a
draft that will bring men, if the President is
pot defeated by weak-backed Republicans.
The Senate Las done its duty In the repeal
of the *3OO exemption clause, and the Bouse
•will undertake a heavy responsibility before
the people if the measure fail la that body.
The West asks New England and New
Xork, if their Republican representatives
really express the aentlmentofthesesectlona
ia persistently bolding out against a coa
ecrlptlon law that will giro the country,men?
Ve trust the matter may be disposed of this
Tciy day, in such a manner aa may fill our
unnlee with fresh material and the hearts of
men with fresh encouragement.
■ The only Republican member ot Congress
from the ten Western States who-Toted
against the repeal of the S3OO commutation
clause of ihe Conscription act, was Charles
Udbod of the Coldwater District, Michigan.
Be alone voted with the Western Copper
heads. The repeal was defeated bythe solid
Copperhead vote, aided by some twenty-fire
Republican votes from the Eastern States,
and Upson aforesaid. The districts repre
sented by these weak-kneed Republican
members arc behind with their quotas; they
don't furnish their share of soldiers by vol
unteering, and their Representatires refuse
lo have a -conscription that calls for men,
! applied to them. Is this honest? Can the
. Union be saved by such legislation.
The Conference Committee on the Tax BUI
Lave at last brought their important meas
ure before Congress, in a shape that meets
the recommendations of the Secretary of the
Treasury and the exigencies of the
lime. It will give a large increase in
revenue, and so be a stay to public
credit, in the carrying on of tbe war. Oar
special Washington dispatch foreshadows
on reliable lnformation,tiie changes secured
in the tax-on certain leading articles and
cnbjeci of revenue, than which no part ol
this issue will be more eagerly consulted.
The general markets to-day were quiet and
ttcady—opening rather heavy in the early
part of the day, but closing firm. The whis
ky market, however, was a scene of excite
ment and panic alternately, but dosing at an
advance of 7c per gallon. The cause ot this
advance was the receipt of dispatches from
Washington predicting that the Conference
Committee would report in favor of a tax of
*1.50 after the Ist of July, and $2.00 alter the
Ist of February. Tbe sales of Highwines du-
ring the day amounted to about 11,000 brla.
The share ol lowa in the warfor tbe Union
s a shining record. She has lavishly poured
brtb both men and means. To her credit,
n the loyal column, Is now to be added the
'act that the Northern lowa Sanitary Fair
mb realized about sixty thousand dollars, and
i large proportion of the donations are still
iDEold. The attendance is large, and the
fair will be continued until the middle, and
)crhaji& until the last of next week.
A Washington letter writer in the New
i< rk Evening Fi*i cuts down the figures of
arsnt'e losses hitherto to 30,000 —less than
me-third of the former statements.
•V c ere more willing than able
.o give fell credence to this es
imate, which must be far below the
». -cal figures. It is lolly and worse than that
~ > seek to cheer the public mind by conceal
f '-i£ the facts. It has been done quite too
\ .lion in this war. The Tkibcve, on the
•vldtnce already received, prefers to
£Eure its readers that Grant has had
icavy losses in his gallant undertakings;
but no has an immense task before him, and
hut he will be best helped by so thorough
n appreciation of these facts, by our rulers,
ingress and the people, that he shall bare
very aid that prompt legislation, energetic
xecutivo management-and hearty loyalty
un ufiord. Push on the war, and let the
utty und rarnish go.
The postponement of the Copperhead
Convention indicates the downfall of Me
'lellan’s hopes. If Grant is successful he is
ow supposed to ataud the best chance, i
ot, then some peace man. Just now the
'ops. -sec no chance of electing anybody.

On the Atlanta and Western Railway, just
twenty miles from the city of Atlanta, lies
the town of Marietta, an old place, contain
ing in peaceful times several thousand Inhab
itants. It has comparatively recently been
ascertained to be a great depot of stores for
the rebel army, ana this causes some to sup
pose that Joe Johnston is making merely a
temporary defense in front of it, for the pur
pose of getting time to remove these stores.
Be llmt as it may, he has taken *p a position
which is strongly defensible, and which
seems to puzzle our officers a little more than
any we have as yet found in Georgia. In all
onr flanking operations, so far, we have so
operated as to cover effectually onr lines of
communications (notwithstanding the silly
stories to the contrary;} but how we shall
oo so in the present case yet remains to be
Ten miles directly west of Marietta, near
tie road panning to Dallas, the county seat
of Paulding county, la an eminence of some
pretension called Lost Mountain. Starting
irom this, and morlngin a direction north of
eaat, yon traverse a low chain of hills, until
von reach the railroad at a point about four
mnes from Marietta, where the chain swella
into an eminence of very considerable mag
nltude called Kenesaw Mountain. The raii
joad meeting this obstruction on Its way to
Marietta, turns sharply to the east, nms In
that direction along the northern base of
Kenesaw for about two miles, and passing
around its eastern extremity, continues its
course southward to the town. Along this
chain ol hills lie the principal rebel works,
Kenesaw Mountain being no donbt the key
to the whole position. Tnls line, however
must not be understood as extending so far
west as Lost Mountain. The latter was
abandoned by the rebels some days ago
Their works now seem to extend along Ken
easw, run off westwardly near a road called
the Burnt Hickory and Marietta road, and
thence turn northwardly, embracing a low
eminence called Pine Mountain, upon which
probably rests their extreme right.
To give a general idea; Take Lloyds Map
of the United States; find the Marietta, also
the town of Ackworth on the railroad about
fourteen nailer from Marietta; draw a lino
irom CAckworth to Marietta; another Irom
Ackworth to a point six miles directly west
of Marie tta; connect this last point and Mari
etta by a third line; and within this triangle
yon have the ground upon which these two
great armies arc contending lor the mastery.
A line drawn across the middle of this trim-
Cle, from east to west, will represent. the
Burnt Hickory & Marietta Road; the cas
tern I.ng side of the trisngle will be very
nearly the Aekw.rth & Marietta dirt road, as
weU as the railroad; the western loag side
willl represent.what Is called the Sand Town
road; while the base will be the Dallas &
Mine via road.
It would be manifestly improper to say
more concerning our own lines, th aT > that
they everywhere confront those of the en
‘ b » t 'l e tikes Place here, operations
■wlU be conducted Vitkin .less complies than
Utter at Dalton, Besaca, or Dallas. The en
emy must necessarily keep his forces some
what massed around the key to his position
which is Kenesaw Mountain; and onrown
lines arc shorter than ever before. I may
indicate here the general location of the
corps—an arrangement, however, which is
liable to be changed at any hoar; Schofield
is on tbe right, Palmer near the center, and
Blair on the left. The other forces are dis
posed among these. Even while I write
ibis. I am informed that there Is to be an es
sential change.
From the top of Kenesaw Mountain the
rebels can overlook and probably see all our
movements. They have a signal station on
the summit, whose flags are constantly in
motion. The mountain is strongly fortified
Irom its base to ita summit, and It is report
ed that batteries of 32-pound guns are on the
top. This may or may not be true.
I have said it is difficult to see how we «*<***
Bank the rebel position here and not expose
.our own base. Without attempting to point
out the difficulty, I merely direct the reader’s
attention to some good map of Georgia, (say
the coast survey,) and ask him to compare
the situation here with those of Dalton, (Buz
zard Roost,) Kingston and Dalles, (Allatoona
Pass.) That we shall m some way overcome
the difficulty, and turn or take the rebel po
sition, I do not permit myself to doubt

the Weldon railroad. When last heard from
they had reached Elves Station, and were
tearing up the track along the road. The
2d and 6th corps moved from their old posi

the movement by our left flank, or else the

Grant’s losses In killed, from the time of

was not over 4,000 men. The wounded were
less than 5,000, a large majority of the inju
ries being very slight.
Tho permanent loss in the army will not
be over 20,000.
The headquarters correspondent, of the
21st, to the Philadelphia Enquirer says events
of considerable moment maybe shortly look

Our lines have been extended on our left
so as to cut the Petersburg and- Weldon rail
road, thus effectually intercepting the line of
communication between Eichmond and the
Golf and seaboard States.
Distant artillery firing was heard to the
left to-day, probably Wilson’s division of
cavalry engaging some force of the enemy.
Onr base at City Point is one of the beat we
have had during the entire campaign.

The rebels made a rear attack on Wright’s

guns of Knight’s New York battery, and

Our men were rallied, and re-took the
ground and captured 700 prisoners.

Petersburg, We still retain an the rebel
works which our forces captured.
The New York Tribune's a pedal, dated
headquarters, 21sL says:
The troope of the Army of the Potomac
proper are now disposed in a semi-circular
I line around Petersburg, our left extending
across the Petersburg and Norfolk Railroad
on the south, and the right resting on the
Appomattox, at Mills' House, four miles
north of the city. Butler’s forces occupy a
position on our right and front, to the north
and westward, toward the Petersburg and
Richmond Railroad.
‘•There are different opinions as to the
number of rebel troops lying In front of Pe
tersburg. It is known that Beauregard’s
troope are there, as a great majority of the
prisoners thus for represent themselves be
longing to bis command. A large portion of
Lee’s army, however, confronts Butler, and
are so disposed as to defend any movement
of Grant against the Petersburg and Rich
mond Railroad. The occupation of this
road by o»r forces would undoubtedly com
pel the abandonment of Petersburg, while at
the same time it would hasten the downfall
of the rebel capital Petersburg, the ter
minus of the Norfolk, Weldon*and Lynchburg
Roads, once in our possession, with Go£

The above list does not include the slightly
wounded, or those missing, of which there
are a large number. I have learned that
some thirty of our men are missing by rea
son of being flanked by the enemy. On the
morning of the ICth it was ascertained that
the enemy at our front were evacuating, and
onr whole force here, consisting principal
ly of General Terry’s Division, fol
lowed them up as Ihr as Ware Bot
tom Church, where the enemy was
■met in largo force. In fact the whole of
Lee’s army were in motion to oppose Gen.
Grant, who was here in person on the ICth,
end whose army is already across the James
river and attacking Petersburg. The princi
pal force met with on theltitb, was Pickett’s
Division, and a lively fight ensued between
nour force and the rebels. It laeald that Ge-
crale Lee, Beauregard and Longstreit were
in onrfront.
The S9th during this engagement were
thrown out as skirmishers, and suffered
greatly. At nightfall two successive charges
were .made by the rebels, but they were
handsomely repulsed each time. Ou the 17th
the rebels again charged upon our picket
line, but were repulsed with heavy .loss,
our regiment (the 39th) taking twenty-six
prisoners. Since the Kith, some ninety pris
oners have come in. This afternoon at 4p.
m., n heavy artillery fire was opened by the
rebels, followed by a charge, which resulted
badly for them —several prisoners were
taken. The 6tb army corps are now here,
together with other troops, and we can hold
our position in spite of Lee, Beauregard or
the d—l, Gen. Gilmore has been relieved
Irom the command of the 10th corps, the
reason for which is so vague that I shall not
mention It. The rumor to-night is that Pe

lor it, for Grant’s army has been at woik all
around the city since yesterday noon, and the
fifing only ceased at 3p. m. to-dayl It is
also stated that Gen. Hunter has possession
of Lynchburg. Ton may look for stirring

of dntles upon whisky. Instead of fixing
the rates at a dollar en all manufactured af
ter the Ist of Jane, a dollar and a quarter on
all manufactured after the Ist of October, and
a dollar and a half on all manufactured after
the Ist of January, as fixed by the Senate
amendments, the Committee recommend

after the passage of the hill, and two dollars
on all manufactured after the 15th of Feb
The Senate receded from their amend
ment increasing the tax on malt liquors
twenty-fire cents, so that it remains at one
dollar as originally fixed by the House. This
tax is imposed upon malt liquors in bottles
as well as that in barrels.

The unanimity with -which the Senate lost
night Toted to repeal the commutation clause
—only seven Senators (all Copperheads) re
cording themselves in the negatives in
striking contrast with the decision of the
same body against the same proposition a
lew days ago.
At the cancns of the Union members of
the House last night, a resolution to support
the proposition of repeal was agreed to with
voiy few dissenting voices. A large number
of members have changed on the question,
but whether a sufficient number to overcome
the majority of 23 by which it was de
feated at this meeting, is donbtlnl. The New
England members Insist upon complying
with the repeal of the commutation clause;
a provision enabling the States to All up
their quotas by recruiting white or black
soldiers from the insurgent States. A pro
vision of this description found considerable
favor at the caucus last night, A new sec
tion is suggested, requiring the Executive to
give thirty days’ notice of a draft It is also
proposed to offer bounties to volunteers pro
portioned to the time for which they enlist.
The provision in the Senate bill passed last
night, authorizing the President to call out
troops for any period not less than one year,
will undoubtedly form a part of the House
bill, to be offered to-morrow as a substitute
for the remainder .of that reported from the
Military Committee and slaughtered in the
House the other day. The latter comes up
to-morrow as unfinished business.
