On Tuesday night, the 3d inst., Lieut. Geri.
G ran t commenced crossing the Rapidan, and
an Wednesday his entire army was across with
the exception of Burnside's corps. Brisk silk
uiisiting emalnenced on Wednesday, but there
was no general engagement until Thursday af
ternoon, When Hill made a desperate assault
upon Hancock's corps, and 'the battle lasted
wall night, without decided advantage to either
side, save that Hancock held his line - and had
, repulsed Hill's attack. This was in the dense
Wilderness in an a ngie between the Rapidan
and ilins Run; and the aim of Lee was to crip
ple Grant's army before it could get on favora
ble ground. On Thursday night Burnside join
ed Grant, having made a forced march from
ma m mas, and at five _o'clock on Friday morn
- ing the entire Union army was in line of battle.
The attack- was made by Ewell at daylight,,
and from thut time ;feta night the battle raged
withlearfulTury. The whole of both armies
:were engaged, and a series of the most despe
rate assaults were trade upon General Grant's
'lines, but his gallant army stood like adamant.
, Sometimes one side, would yield a temporary
advantage, and again the other would recede,
and - the same ground was often fought over
three or four times as the tide of advantage
would surge from one Side to the other, Tio3
any-closed upon one of the most desperate atki.'l
deadly battles in 'the history of war, with little
no perceptible„ advantage to either side. It
was, • however, substantially a defeat to Lee, for
hehis_d failed in his exhausting effort to break
Grant's army, _find had weakened himself much
;more - than his foe. But he did not yet abandcln,
his favorite tactics of hurling massed columns
ttrin'otir lines. Near midnight fie broke upon
Sedraitk, who held Grant's right_wing, with
anch-TimpetuositY that he flanked Sedgwick's
ettreme wing, thiew several brigades into con
' fusion, and ctiptured Generals Seymour and
Maier, and acme 700 men. Beyond this, how,.
• ever, the assault failed—the main Wing was in
slncible and the foe had to retire again. 'On
Friday night Gen. Grant threw his right wing
_gear over to ids left, and thus advanced his
line toward Spottsylvania, and threatened Lee's
right hank. Lee at once surrendered the bat
, tle-ground of the Wilderness, and onSaturday
the fighting was renewed on new lines, and
from Saturday until -Tuesday the armies were
engaged daily with more or less desperation,
without decisive results—Gen. Grant ever hold
- ing his own and at times gradually advancing.
On Tuesday of last week, the foe seemed re,
solved to make another death-struggle to break:
Grant's lines and thus cripple . him sothat he,
must imitate M'Clellan, Burnside and Hooker
by retreating back toward Washington. The
-rebel supplies were evidently, becoming ex
hausted, as a desperate but unsuccessful attack
had been made on our trains the day before.;
and the stand of Tuesday Was doubtless made
with the double purpose of permanently arrest
ing Grant's advance and breaking fis lines to
procure supplies. The battle was most despe
rate, but the-power of the - rebels was waning,
while the gallant 'Army of the Potomac had
been infused with new life under its persever- '
ing commanders, and the day was closed with
,positive disadvantafd to the rebels and their
ranks terribly shattered. For the first - time our
artillery was used with fearful effect on that
day—the dense timber . " of the Wilderness ren
dering artillery uselessi—and their loss was man
ifestly greater than ours. On Wednesday -the
struggle was renewed, but the foe made feeble
resistance compared. with the day before, It
was evident that they were fast failing either
in supplies or in . confidence of succeess, and on
Wednesday night Hancock's corps was so dis
posed as to be ready for an assault before_day
break on Thursday morning Gallantly did the
brave young Pennsylvanian perform his task,
'and over 4,000 prisoners and 36 guns were cap
tured by his command. Being in a•layong po
action, the rebels defended stubbornly the re
mainder of the day', and also on Widay, but
Grant was steadily advancing and his decisive
victory was evidently only a question of time.
The battle of 'Thursday was decisive—it had
exhausted the foe beyond. farther endurance,.
and although iu a chosen and entrenched poai
tion, they were unable to hold it against the in
-vincible columns of Grunt and Meade. On
Friday evening they abandoned their line, and
Saturday Morning found them retreating across
• -beyond the'Pre,eil over the Ta river, and ta
king Afp d new line on the latter stream. Gen.
_Grant ones crossed his 'army over the Po,
and at the clam of nine days of continuous fight
ing he found himself wholly master of the bat
:Ale fields, and:. his foe retreating before him.
Since then w4ave not, at the time of this wri
ting, had news of Grant's advance, and it is
,that the storm • has so swollen the
streams that he cannot do so for a few days.
Thus nobly, wisely, and with matchless skill
- did Lieut. Gen. Grant and Maj. Gen. Mend
direct the ever heroic but ill-starred Army of the
'Potomac to decisive victory. Green and en
during indeed will be the laurels won by Grant
But the movements immediately under Gen.
Grant mods the Rapidan were but a part of
the grand operations he was couducting. From
• the sanguinary fields of the Wilderness and the
Po he directed the movements _of other columns
:to whom was assigned most important auxilary
duties. Gen. Butler moved up the Peninsula,
landed South of the James River, severed
. 'Richmond from Petersburg and invested Fort
Darling. On Saturday he had the Fort cut off
from all reinforcements, had defeated Bemire
/card and driven him back into Petersburg, had
the Monitors with him just below the Fort, and
thus was within eight miles of therebel capital,
and threatening it daily. Gen. Sheridan, chief
of Cavalry under Gen. Grant; had been sent
round to Lee's rear to sever his lines with
Richmond, and destroy his stores, and the work
vas most completely done. He destroyed the
'Aire road from Lee's rear to Richmond—
laming every important bridge and destroying
very culvert, and every car, locomotive and
Blithe stores and munitions on the line shared
the game fate. At one point he - destroyed a
millon and a half of rebel rations. When near
T -Bi-chnond The was met by Stuart andhis cav
e:l7.'sd they were routed and Stuart killed,
and Sheridan proceeded beyond the first line of
the fOrtifications of Richmond, and landed on
the Peninsula. This movement has cut Lee off
entirely from adirect line of supply, and devel
oper the fact that the rebel army is without an
effective cavalry force. Lee's only remaining
line of supply is by railroad from Richmond to ,
Lynchburg, fully 100 miles, thence to Gordans
vine, 100 miles farther, and thence by wagons
to his line on the Ta (held by him on Saturday)
winch is not less than 35 miles farther—
making a line- of supplies of -35 miles, and that
constantly . exposed. We hype to hear that
Sigel has cut the Virginia Central road at or
near - Charlottesville. He was at 'Woodstock a
week ago, and if_ he reaches Charlottesville,
1 -- o
Lee is entirely without a lin f supplies, while
Sheridan is master of the rods-to his rear, and
nova single wagon train
,c n reach - him. It
would seem impossible the fore fore for Lee to hold
his present position for even a week and he
must either hazard his army in a desperate as
sault to break Grant's lines and capture supi ,
pies, and he must retreat ingloriously South of
his capital. To enter the Richmond entrench
ments with his present army, would be 'certain
starvation and capture. In the meantime Gen.
Averill has cut the Tennessee road near the
Virginia line, and this prevents all demonstra
tions of the rebels toward East Tennessee, and
Schofield has left Knoxville to a small garrison,
while he has marched to join Sherman in his
movement against Johnson. Last week Dalton
was given up to our advancing columns without
a contest, 'and Johnson has doubtless gone to
Atlanta to make a last defeulr, for their vast
shops and stores there - and for the defence of
—Such is a brief record of two weeks devot
ed by our noble armies to the execution of the
grand combinations of Gen. Grant, and the cir
cle of substantial success seems complete. The
Army of tilt Potoniac is- being largely re
inforCed, and of Grant's early and victorious

- CERTIFICATE OF A.ll. R'CLERE.
CHAMEERSBURGI, May 17,1864.
.Roert Black Esq.—Dear Sir: I have thoronqhlY
tested the Tread-power in running all kinds o rm a _
el l iadry about the Barn, and I have had the moot
appriived Lever-powers tried at my•_Barn also, and
1- un hesitatingly recommend the Tread-power. .t
run all my machinery—thresher and cleaner, corn
sheller, chopping-mill, fodder -cutter, and circula
saw, with a two-horse Tread-power. and the powe •
is ample and two horses can give the same if ni
greater power than four can with the lever-power.
and the labor is no more severe on the horses. L.
short. I regard. the Tread-power as having every
advaptage over the Lever power, and it must soon
lie universally adopted by farmers.
Very Respectfully Yours,
A. K. M'CLURE.
