hamond As it. Was.
Tow that our gallant army is in
possession of this city, where the in.
iquitoss plans and plots of the leaders
of the great rebellion have been devel
oped and put in action, it will be in
tereating to look back and see. Rich
mond -as it was before the war, when
the shield of the Union was hold over
it.; and its mistaken and misguided, in
luibitapts *ere pursuing their avoca
tions under the guardianship of our
great and free Government. .
Richmond possesses great advanta
ges in its position, its land and water
connections, and the character of the
surrounding scenery. As capital of
the great State of Virginia, 'it was the
centre at, which :gathered all the in
tellect,..the wealth, the prosperity of
the Old Dominion. , Situated on the
northeastern bank of the James river,
at the lower falls of 'that stream, and
at the head of tido water, it rests upon
several hills, Which give a pleasing va
riety to the appearance of the
. city,
and afford noble -sites for architectural
display. The environs contain many
elements of beauty. The river pasties
through undulating hills, foams over
granite rocks, and embraces numerous
green islands in the course. Richmond
lies southwest from Washington, at a
distance of ono hundred miles in a
straight line, and one hundred and
thirty miles by. railroad. It is one
hundred and sixty-eight miles from
Baltimore, and twenty-two north of
Petersburg. .
The citfis regularly laid in rectan
gular blocks. The Capitol, which, from
its size and the high ground on which
it stands,is the most conspicuous ob
ject in the gado, is built in a public
square ; on Capitol Hill, the summit of
which is an elevated plain in the wes
tern portion of the city. It is fronted
with a fine portico of lonic columns,
and before it stood, prior to the war, a
splendid monument with bronze stat
ues of Washington audother distin
guished sons , of the State in her old
(days of loyalty and honor. In an an
gle 'of Capitol Square also stands the
City Hall, a fine building in the Derie
style_ This qUarter of Richmond was
Aliefishionable quarter. Hero the scions
.of the "first families of Virginia" had
their'mansions, and held their aristo
cratic sway.
Nunferous public buildings arc seat
lered through the city. .The _Peniten
tiary, which is in the western suburbs,
is a' large edifice, with a front of.three
hundred feet. I l here are aISO the
.courthouse, the jail, a theatre, an or
phan asylum, and a Masonic. Hall, to
gether with a large armory, 320 feet
long by 280 in width. Befdre the re
bellion broke out a handsome new cus
tom house was in course of erection by
our Government, for - Richmond was a
port of entry, and possessed consider..
able commerce.
There were three banks in the city,
having an aggregate capital of $2,11.4-,
000, but where are the funds of these
institutions now?. Confederate loan,
scrip, and currency, ialuelesl, as rags,
have vainly attempted to represent
money at their counters, and what
sold they still possessed was insecure,
or it was a tempting bait to the cu
111dity and the necessities of the rebel
leaders. About thirty obarebps are
spread through the city, representing

two Jewish places,of worship. Ainong_
the educational institutions which ex
isted in the city may be ''ilotod the
Richmond College, St. Vincent's Col
lege, and the Medical Departmerit of
Hampden and- Sydney College. The
city - is: supplied with river 'water,
which - is forced into three large reser
voirs, holding a million of - gallons each.
For a number of years prior to the
rebellion Richmond had rapidly in
creased in population and business.
The James river and lianaivha canal
terminated- and the Richmond - and
Petersburg and Richmond and Fred
ericksburg Railroads connected there,
forming part> of the great Southern
mail line ; the Central Railroad waen.
ded westward into the heart'of the
State, and the Danville road, running
southivestward, connected . with' the .
railioad system, of Tonnessee ‘ and.Geor-,
gia. The James river is navigable for
vessels of ten feet draught to the
wharves of the city, and' those of fif-,
teen feet draught can comp within
throe miles. , Constant communication
was kept up. with Philadelphia and
New York by means of ocean steam
ors, and with Baltimore and. Norfolk
by daily steamboats. The central po
sition of . Richmond made it a depot for
all the products of Virginia, and the
exports of the port' were immense.
Tobacco, grain, and flour ' were the
chief articles of trade. Of tobacco,
huge quantities were Sent to all parts of
Europe, as well as distributed through
the United States. An immense wa
ter power was derived from the Jainee
river, and was taken advantage of
to work, the machinery of mills and
manufactories. The principal things
produced were tobacco, cotton, and
woolen goods; paper, machinery, and
ironware. The flour product was tre
mendous. At times the number of bar-,
roll reached an almost incredible fig
ure. In 1854 the populatiow amount
ed to 82,389 souls, of whom 19,282 were
white persons, 10,889 slaves, and'2,223
froo persons of color. The population
had, however, reached a much larger
figure at the time of the commence
ment of the war.
Such was Richmond as it flourished
under the protection of our national
flag; so was it when its infatuated in
habitants, carried away by the blind
ing visions of Southern independence
and of a government founded for the
express purpose of perpetuating sla-,
very, and as the seat of which they
hoped their city would acquire - new
fame, tore down and trampled upon
the glorious emblem.• which should
have been their pride, and rushed
madly into the strife which has result
ed in their utter humiliation, and the
downfall of their misguided ambition.
The difficulties which our armies
have met in 'the capture of the city
are to be ascribed as much to the char
acter of the defences which nature and
the rebels have given it, as to the in
competency of our failing generals. In
the, there were five direct
lines of railroad which it was impor
tent for us - to cut before we could poss
ess the city, and from these branched
many others, which rendered them
doubly, troblyAnd quadruply valuable,
since they penetrated every part of tho
Southern country: On the north iv3re
three running to Fredericksburg, to
Gordonsville, Charlottesville, and by
way of. Culpeper to Alexandria and
Washington, and the West Point road,
which was of but little value, except
as a feeder to the other .two. On the
south were the Weldon and the Dan
ville roads. The first three were easily
cut by our forces, as they were in the
lino of approach from the Potomac,
and, anyhow; would afford but little
supportlo the garrison of the city,
because the territory through which
they passed was likely to bo in our
possession, and was so during almost
the whole duration of the rebellion.

was thitermined that neither rebid

time, gave the rebels real uneasiness,

it may bo, but nevertheless pointing
to our • success sooner Or . later.: Leo
felt, this also, :ind day by day valuable
property was removed South , when it
could he id" any way spared. This
was all visible to Grant. When he
entered, on the expedition against
Richmond he had his fair fame as a
genernl . to preserve, and ho could only

The rebels could.find, at tho time he

and rebel lines of battle. But his
mind was a military ono,.and equal to
the crisis. Simultaneous with his

forth to attempt a task, hard and un

an unknown and untried country,

turnpike and Fredericksburg railroad,
and along these roads to the ; city, was
one continuous line' of beleaguering
works, all bristling with guns and oc
cupied by troops ready to ,defend them
to the last.. Around the city, com
manding every approaph,-were : Forts
Lee, - Johnston, Longstreet,' Froneh,
11111, Davis, :Randolph, Jackson, and.
Winder, varying in dietance &OM the
city from ono to five tulles. - They
were the lunettes of an uninterrUpted
line of works, indeed, a triple lino, for
there were three lines at intervals of
half a mile. Forts Randolph, Jackson
and Hill, disputed an advance over the
Chielcahominy atlfeebanieaville, and
the numerous bridges, above and below
the town, while French, hoe and
Johnston, and other minor batteries,
glared at invaders marching along the
"Southsido." These forts were all on
the north and west.. On the east were
the works that barred McClellan's ad
vance along the York River railroad,
and the Williamsburg stage road, and
were so fatal to our progress at Seven
Pines, Fair Oaks and Savage Station.
'.Cho Charles city road was defended
by redoubt after redoubt, rendered al
most impregnable by the White Oak
Swamp, which stretches all along to
tho.east of the city. The Now Mark

A. short distance north Of the and of
this chain, Fort 'Darling was erected
on the bluffs, and was but once attack
ed by us in the memorable Peninsular
campaign, when thelron or tin clad
Galena is said to have been pierced by
every desconding.shet that struck her.
Below this fort and near the obstruc
tions was Fort Rhott, which stood at
the beginning of a continuous line of
eartbworks to Falling :Creek, striking
it about seven Miles southwest of the
city. The creek formed one side of a
lozenge, the rise of its convexity dis
tant about two miles from the similar
rise of the works. These works over
lcioked what is significantly called the
"Valley of Death"—eallod so for some
unknown reason for hundreds of years.
Another chain followed the lino of the
James and enclosed Petorsburg-;--the
whore system having the forth of a
string with two .loops in it, another
string pendant to one of them. From
Deep Bottom to Hatcher's Run the
works were opposed by our own which
daily encroached upon theM. It is
useless to attempt to describe in detail
the works around Petersburg, named
after Menunimger, Mason, Wise, Yan
cey, Gordon, and Slidell, and twenty
other rebel magnates. Suffice it to say
that-they were strong, admirably con
trived, a perfect labyrinth, bristling
with guns, and ominous of death. The
works exist now, 'but are no longer

over them, amid rebel shot and

panic to seine place of shelter they

Heroic Gallantry of ‘our_Troops
- . -
licadyitarta-s Army of - the. Potomac, 1
- April 2d 1865. f
The most. important victory the ar
my of the Potomac has over gained
in Virginia, was won to-day, and the
outer line of works which wo have
been. trying .in .vain for months to ,
overcome, has at last yielded to our
victorious arms, iind the great portion;
of ,this army are to•ylight` within a
mile and a half of the . city, on the
Southwest side.
The: struggle made by the eneney, to
retain these works was of ronost des
perate character,. and• for the success ,
obtained to-day we are indebted' not•
only to the strategy exorcised by our,
commanders, but tel the oyerwholm 7
ing number and bravery•of the troops_
that did the work. -
Orders from an attack on the lino
east and south of Petersburg, by the
Sixth and Ninth corps wore carried'
out punetually at daylight,: the -artil-•
ler.) , having hem' hainthering away
the greater part of the night along
the entire lino held by the.aboye corps.;
Such a furious cannonade has been
very seldom heard during the war; not
even surpassed by that which was'
hoard on the occasion of.the. mine ox
The 9th Corps' troops engaged in
the action, were , the econd and third
divisionsi, and Col. Satn. ilarriman's
brigade, of the First division. , ,
The charge was made in front of
Forts Hell and 'fl , co, on tho 'Jerusa
lem road;ia hso far sucCe'ssftd
that atB o'clock, A. M., we wore in pos
session of the fortifications.—Fort
hon being most extensive and elabor
ate -
Those works contained . rnineteen
guns, some of which wore at once
opened on the enemy by the men
belonging to infantry roginients.
Just inside or about 100 yards
from Fort Mahon was another work
to which the rebels retreated, and
from which they threw most destruc
tive fire among our men, causing
them to retire from the northern end,
when the rebels made a dash, thinking
to recover it entirely, but the guns on
the right wing as well as on the cen
tre had been maimed add shattered,
and the assailants driven back.
From this time till late in the af-
ternoon the struggle continued, the
enemy using every effort to recover
their fort, while our men were deter
mined to retain possession of what
they had fought so' hard and paid so
dearly for. About noon the chances
seemed that weshould lose it, but soon
after the provisional brigade under
Gen. Collins, and engineer brigade
under Gen. Denham, with Gen. Ham
lin's brigade of the sixth corps came
on the ground, and .by their timely
arrival saved the gallant men in -the
work; from capture, and again caused
the enemy to retire. -
The fire which rained on the ground
around this fort was of the most fear
ful character, add to stand. and see
men advance on a run through the
very thickest of it, mady, of them torn
to pieces and lost sight of before they
had crossed half the-distance, ,was a
sight not soon forgotten. -.
At dark the position of the contest
ants was the same as during the day.--
Gen. Wilcox, with a portion 'of his di
vision, made an attack in front of Fort
M'Gilory, near the Appomattox, and
took part of the line but IVatll aeon af.
for forcod,to retire to his former posi
tion, owing•to a lack of support.
The loss of the Ninth. Corps will

were Gen. Potter, commandidg the

The Sixth corps struck the enemy's
line in front of Fort Welch, near the
celebrated lead works, and carried
thorn with very slight loss. They at
once rushed for the South Side road,

and in a very short time several miles
of it wore torn up and destroyed.

looked up from his book, requested the
unknown visitor to be seated; and re
sumed reading. After looking itrotuad ;
for a few minntes the President ad
dressed the Chancellor, and the follow

have a groat many books here," said
the President. "Yes." "I see you haVe
Shakspeare" said the President; "have

know the moral of Othello?" "Certain
