Ws Troops Within Twenty Miles of
BALTIMORE, March 14.—A returned'
Union prisoner, who reached Annapo
lis to-day; direct from Richmond, com
municates some interesting intelligence •
in relation to the state of affairs at
Richmond, and Sheridan's movements.
He says ho was confined in Castle
Thunder, and through the friends of
Union citizens incarcerated there, oh
4ained much information relative to
events transpiring, about which the
Richmond papers aro silent.
Saturday night last Richmond
was thrown into a state of intense ex
-citernent by the announcement that
Sheridan was near the city. The alarm
bells were rung and all the home
guards, and every available man that
could be spared, was hurried off to re
pel the Yankees, who were said to be
at Beaver Mills aqueduet, on James
River, some twenty miles from the
city, destrOying Oro canal, which is
the main feeder of Richmond.-
The excitement continued all night
and increased to a panic . throughout
Sunday and down to 'Monday morn
ing. When ho - left the excitement'
still prevailed. It was understood that
Sheridan had succeeded in the destruc
tion of-theaqueduct, blowing it up with
enpowder, and it would take at least
six months to repair the damage done
by him. • .
During Sunday afternoon Pickett'S
Division, passed Castle Thunder in
great haste, on the way to meet Sher
idan. There is a ferry near the Aque
duct, and it was believed that Sheri
dan's purpose was to cross the James,
and strike the Danville Railroad near
the coal fields ; where there is an ex
tensive bridge, destroy that, and thus
complete the destruction of the com
munications of Richmond, and then
make a junction with General Grant.
Movements indicating preparations for
an abandonment of Richmond, have
been in progress for' some time. The
heavy machinery for manufacturing
iron has, been removed, also,the ma
chinery of their percussion cap factory,

The Late Battle at Kinston,
The Rebels Completely Routed.
nighly Interesting Particulars,
NEW YORK, March 14.—Tho Herald's
Correspondent, writing from in front
of Kinston, N. C., gives the following
account, of the late fighting there : On
Wednesday, the Sth inst., the enemy,
consisting of Hoke's division, made a
determined effort to' turn our„ left
flank—they cams up rather unexpec
codly and .furiously,. and. the conse
quence was.the loss, on our part, of a
large, portion of two regiments, who
wore flanked . by superior numbers.
The left of the line, held by the 2d di
vision, General Carter in command,
fought desperately, resorting to the
bayonet when their ammunition was
-To compensate for the losses here,
Col. Savage, of the 12th New York
cavalry, made a detour on the rear,
and captured nearly one hundred pris
oners. The same afternoon an attack
was made on our right,' and repulsed
without loss. Gen. Schofield came up
in the afternoon, and-assumed --com
mand. Night coming on, action ceas
ed. Captain Fish, 12th New York
Artillery, had lost two small howitzers,
and Captain _Kelley, artillery ; had lost
a Napoleon gun. We had taken, per
haps, 200 prisoners during the day.
. On Thursday morning, the 9th inst.,
Malloy fully regained his original po.
sition, and continued to hold it. The
enemy charged 'upon him three times
in the forenoon, and were each time
easily repulsed with some loss of life;
and a small loss of prisoners to them.
Theforonoon was mostly occupied with
light skirmishing along the' whole line.
We still held our original line—ample
breastworks having been erected, and
stout hearts occupying both them and
the skirmish pits—all through the
ovenineof the 9th.
On the morning of the 10th the reb
el fury again belched forth. They had
evidently learned something that ur
ged them to unusual desperation, and
we afterwards learned that it must
have been the reception of the intelli
gence by thOM that Couch was com
ing up overland to join Cox. This, of
course, necessitated a furidhs and spee
dy onset upon Cox, in order to anni
hilate him before Couch should come
up. All night long they charged again
and again, making six or eight differ
ent charges, amid the roar of musketry
and cannon that was deafening and
terrible as it swept and surged through
the night air. They had driven bvk
our skirmish lino from their rifle pits
to the breastworks, and they seemed
determined to pour their hordes over
into these, 'but the wave was sent
bounding back time after time, and
finally, on the morning of the 11th,
as, they attempted another flank
movement on oust loft, it is said that
we took from. them an entire regi
ment of Alabamians.
From this time their ardor began to
diminish, and yesterday afternoon
when I left the immediate scene of
action there was every prospect that
we would soon regain the skirmish
pits and win a handsome victory over
the maddened foe. We have probably
taken from the - commencement on
last evening, not far from 2,000 prison
ers. Our entire loss from the coin-
Meneement, in killed, wounded and
prisoners, cannot be over 2,000. The
Colonel of the 118th Ohio was severe
ly wounded in the log.

Further Destruction of Property
Washington, March 17.
Major General Dix, New York :
Major Gen. Sheridan reports on the
15th instant, from the bridge of the
Richmond and. Fredericksburg Rail
road, across the South Anna river that
hating destroyed the James River
Canal as far to the east as Gooch
land, he marched up to the Virginia
Central Railroad at Toleravillo and
destroyed it down. to Beaver Dam
Station, totally destroying fifteen
miles of the road.
General Custer was then sent to
Ashland and General Divon to the
South Anna Bridges, all of which have
been destroyed.
General Sheridan says that the
amount of public property destroyed
in his march is enormous. The enemy
attempted to proyent his burning the
Central Railroad bridges over the
South 'Anna; but the Fifth United
States Cavalry 'Charged up to' the
bridge, and about thirty men dashed
across on foot, driving off the enemy
and capturing three pieces of artillery,

Assistant Secretary of War,
New York Times' gives utterance to
the following Concerning General
Grant: "That grim patience and al
most sublime self-forgetfulness which
has kept him for se many months on
a slow, wearisome, comparatively un
brilliant task or holding Lee and his
Army-as in a vice in Virginia, while
his subordinates made the brilliant
marches and well
the easy victories ;
is something not much admired by
the crowd, but which history will nev
er forget or cease- to celebrate. It
is the union of these patient and . self
contained qualities with, the highest
dash and daring;At' is the exhibition
of tho most retn'aitkable energy and
sagacity in seizing the opportune mo
ment for the execution of his purpose—
it is the combination in his intellect of
art all-comprehensive vision with the
most extraordinary power of coordin
ation, which have already placed Gen.
Grant in a feremost position among
the great military leaders of all ages.

The Grand Campaign,"
The Army and Navy Jonrnal, in an
article on the "Grand Campaign,"
written before the news of Sheridan's
great exploit came to hand, says:
Sheridan _can, with little opposition,
cross the Blue Ridge through Rock
fish Gap and capture the iniPortant:
railroad junction of CharlottesVille..
With or without that capture, he 'can
move briskly upon the James River
Canal, which is not more than a good
day's march, it being, in an air line,
only 25 miles distant from the Gap,
l and less than 20 from Charlottsville.
We can hardly doubt .that so much
has already been done. It is not im-
possible, even, that, with Early's army
reduced to its present size, Sheridan
May force his way along the easterly
base of the Blue Ridge toLynchburg,
and even capture that city. Should
this be effected, the importance of the
success could not bo over estimated.
It would be a victory unparalleled
by anything yet achieved in the pres
ent Virginia campaign. And, even if
Lynchburg were not carried, should
Sheridan break the railroad between
that point and Riehmond, - the' conse
quences would bo momentous upon the
fate of the enemy's capital.
But it must be taken for granted
that Leo. has already sent large rein
forcements to Early. Itis of vital in
terest for him to
,keep Sheridan off
from his, western line of
.supply, even
if he puts in momentary jeopardy his
at Richmond. At this
however, Grant's army becomes an
important actor on the scene: With
its numerical strength always double
that of Lee, with the latter depleted
by troops sent against Sheridan and
troops sent against Sherman, a well
managed move against the Soutbside
Railroad might have reaSonable pros
pect of triumph. Not only this possi
bility of immediate success, but the co
operative aid it would lend to Sher
man, Sheridan and Schofield, toll us
that the Army of the Potomac will
soon be in motion. Other plans of
Grant might be aided by such a move.
And when it happens, it is not clear
that the Army of the - Potomac is the
only force the eniliny will have to
guard against. • -
In such exigencies, Leo's' natural
course would be to summon back a
Part of the troops sent to Johnston.
