— SIIERMAN'S PROGRESS.
The Rebel repo of an engagement
between Sherman and Johnston at Ben
senville affords a cgovenient occasion, of
remarking upon the popular fallacy about
the movement of great armies. There
has beea no action of any importance.—
Some small portions of the forces on eith.
er side are all that can have been engaged.
'A great army traversing an enemy's coati,
try is net-to be looked upon as a unit. It
does not move in a single column. It
canaotb3 contained in au ordinary five

its travel. 'lt is a vast Multitude, spread.

half knew that .a shot had been fired. So
.thai when we bear. of "Sherman" 'being
her.: or there, or of an "engagement be
&cell' Sherman and Johnston" we shall
do well to redember that it is likely to
mean some incOnsederable 'affair between
the beads of different 'colUmns. klhere
will be no general battle between tie ar
_inks of the Union' and the Rebellion till
ne point has been reaChed whereon

the tenor of the whole dispatch contradicts
But Lee has taken lately to reporting
skirmishes as general engagements, and
we peed net be surprised at this.
The eignifieanze of the news, so far as
it, can be credited at all, is merely that

is little doubt that the damage to the

ers from Lee's army have come in here
during thelast ten days. r. From My own
examination of a large number, and from
the evidenee at :the: Provost Illarshal's
office, I have come to one conviction, tin
that is; that Lee's raqis utterl4broken
in spirit, and cannot leaie its intrenoh:
merits without losing half its numbtra by
.desertion.; and what is better yet, I am
satisfied that this breaking, up is not
simply from discouragement, but because
the mass of the men have had their eyes
opened to the trreriature of the struggle;
and have learned - that their true interest
is to range' themselves on• Abe : :side of
northern.democracy, and . no longer sup.
port southern aristocracy. •
This knowledge they have gained in
many ways : by contact tvith•nur
men on picket. You may often see two
, opposing: pickets taking their dinner at
the sama hyr, exchanging hard tack for
tobacco, exchanging papers, and exchang
ing ideas. • Second,- by connection:with
our prisoners confined among them; and
third, by being carried north as prisoners

kept for, months near Chicago or some
other large city. Thousands upon thou.

will give you a summary of the statements
which a number of these have made to
me during the last few days.
The statement of one man whom I
examined day before yesterday will give
you the best idea of the whole, and as he
was never a rebel at heart, his statement
is entitled . to full credence. lam sure
he told me what he had observed himself,
for I cross-questioned him very 'sharply.

was se thin that we had to go on picket
every other night, which is wearing the
men out very fast. In one short move
of only eight miles, one brigide, only
twelve hundred strong, lost one! hundred
men by desertion. The deserters are
veterans, who have got ideas sine° the war
began ; the conscripts don't knoi enough,
and are afraid to desert, for "Lee has
promised thirty days' furlough" to every
man who shoots- another attempting to
desert. This does not stop them. 'How
soon we can get out of the! lines' is
the common , talk in every tent tied every
company. Sometimes our offuiers come

line where they were came over, bringing
their guns. I asked one of the &nth
Carolina men, who looked very/intern
' gent, if he was a conscript. "so," said
he, "I' volunteered at the beginning of
the war." I then asked biotite tell me
what led him to voluntee/and what led
him to desert. "Well'," said he, "our
politicians told us that Linc4ln was an
abolitionist and w"fild put the niggers

A: Three years and ten months, and
I have fought as well as I'couki.
Q. What did you come over for.?
A. Because I found out what we
have been fighting for.
Q. What is it?
A. Fighting for richthen's niggers;
and d—o. them, they can't humbug me•
any •more. ,
Q, Will there be, another big - fight ?
A. Not in the field ? but they will
fight hehind entrenchments.
Q. Why do you make the distinction?'
A. Because in the field the army will
-break up, but behind the lines,,in the 1
works, there is a prov st guard of rich
men's sons, or men that are picked out.
These have special privileges, live in
bomb-proofs, and are ordered to 'shoot
every man on the front line who does not
fight. • ,
Q. What Aid you, know

A. We heard that they had gone,and
we expected t i hem to make peace.
Q. , Were, you disappointed ?
A: Yes, Indeed ;it broke Lee's army
all up. They might have made peace,
And we knew it, • although our officers
lied to us—and that is what brings so
many over. 1
Q. Why don't the conscripts come?

know enough ; they tell them they will
be forced into the ranks, and have niggers
put over them, ;and the new men be

used to be. singing out, "Boys, we're
flanked," but the day I left I heard an

Q. Where"w6re you stationed ?
A. In front of Petersburg.
Q. How often did you go on picket?

so thin we had to.

'A. Yes, as soon as I get out of here

A. • Yes. My father' had a small
plantation and .a few tuggers—just•enough
to live on. I
had much more talk with this, man,

men who stood around us. All •agree
that the common desire and talk in the
