will be found such brief extracts in relation
to the late battles, as we have room for, clip
ped from the great mass of news, rumors tc.,
as published in the N. Y. World. It has thus
far been impossible to get a reliable and suc
cinct account of this teirible struggle be
tween the two greatest armies that ever met
in deadly strife on this continent. There lias
been no general engagement since Thursday.
Both armies seem now sated with the car
nage and ate resting now from their bloody
Work,only to renew it after taking breath.—
Lee has fallen back but a short distance from
the scenes of the last Little and taken up a
position which Gen. Grant will only tak.
after desperate lighting. Grant awaits rein
forcements whioh have been sent him. Ev
erything considered, his victories of the past
few days, as they have been styled, are very
expensive ones. The advance from the Rap.
idan has been disputed inch by inch, and ev
ery mile has cost thousands of lives.
The army of Lee is now sullen and defiant,
and under the eyes of Gen. Grant who does
not advance, if indeed can do so. In spite of
all the flank movements Lee is said to be
now receiving reinforcements. It is not
clamed that he has lost in killed and woun l
•d, as manj' as Grant. As hs recedes to
ward Richmond his defences grow stronger.
It seems quite certain, that unless that city
shall be taken by bome movement not now
lookad for, that immense sacrifices of human
life will yet have to be made before the great
object of the campaign shall Lave been at

to a friend in this city in severe denuncia

is the conclusion: •• Behoving that this Ad

The National Debt .Measured and Weighed.
Mr. John F air. a calculating machine of
New York city, thus measures and weighs
four thousand millions of dollars, which be
assumes is, or is to he, the National Debt.
It has been said that this debt is so great
that it is to vast fur comprehensions. N Now
as a practical man I propose* to weigh and
measure it, that we may thereby obtain a
more definit idea of its immensity.
A silver dollar measures 1 1-2 inches in
diameter ;§8 placed edge to edge will make
one foot in length, ."$2-1 so placed will make
one yard in length, and $42540 so placed wiii
make one mile in length.

Ic would, therefore, require $91:2,304.000
to go once around if. This var.t sum
be multiplied by four and .four tenths to
make it equal to (he amount of our National
debt, which would make the silver dollars go
around ihe earth's circumference four times
and cover 8.U40 miles besides. Allowing
a silver dollar to weigh an <unco. 16 to a
pound, 2.000 pounds to the ton, our debt
would weigh Itii.OuO ton*, and would re
quire 125 ships of 1,000 tons burthen to
It would make 62,300 truck loath, of two
tons each ; and calculating that each truck
will cover a space of 30 feet, tbey would

years and 40 daj s to c unt the amount of this

I Sheridan at the Gates of the Capital.
WASHINGTON, May 14—11:1 p. M.
Major General Dix:
An official dispatch front General Sheridan
d fc.d at Bottom bridge, via Fortress Mon
roe, Mar 13. states that on the 9th insf., he
matched aiouu 1 the enemy's right flank,
and on the evening of that day reached the
North Anna liver, without opposition.
During the nuht he destroyed the enemy's
depot at Beaver Darn, three iirgo trains of
cars and one hundred ears, two fine locom >-
lives, two hundred thousand pounds (Aba

about one million and a half of rebel rations ;
also the telegraph and railroad track for
about ten miles, embracing several culverts ;

After demonstrating around the works
and finding them very strong, he ga**e up
the intention of assaulting, and determined
to recross the Chickahominy at Meadow

the enemy, but was repaired in about three
hours under a heavy artilery fire from a reb-

THE FOUR TERR IDLE B/-TTUES
OX THE RIVER PO.
The particulars which I have received of
the battles of the oth 10th, 11th, and 13th
inst, at Spottsylvania on tho river Po, prove
them to have been fiercely contested and
sanguinary beyond description. On tie 3ih,
to say nothing of other looses, we suffered the
great calamity of the death of General Sedg
wick, who might well be called General
Grant's right arm. On the 10th, although
General Grant had telegraphed to the Secre
tary of War that he did not intend to renew
the conflict on that day : yet the maneuvers
of the rebel general in the morning were so
threatening that General Grant altered his
mind before noon, and at 12 O'CIOCK issued
orders for a resumption fur hostilities at five
in the afternoon. In this contemplated at
taek, liowever, lie was anticipated by General
Lee, who himself Assumed the offensive
fore 1 o'olck in the afternoon. This of course
deranged General Grant's plans to some ex
tent, and made some modification in them
necessary. The whole of the fifth corps, as
I am informed, and the divisions of General
Birney and General Gibbons, of the Second
coips, were ordered to assault the center of
the enemy's position. There are no better
troops in the army than these. The assault
was made. It was led*by the officers n per
The regulars took part in if, and it was
beautiful to see the steadiness with which
they moved to the attack, and the coolness
with which they formed and reformed under
the galling fire of the-enemy. Bui the as
sault was repulsed with frightful loss on cur
side, and the enemy still held their position.
The aLemj dH aaare thsu that. When this
assault was ordered. Barlow's division of the
Second corps liad been left a! ;ne in an ex
posed condition on the extreme left, across a
little rivulet that flows into the Po. Observ
ing this, and knowing their ability to repulse
the assault of the Fifth Corps, Genera! Long
street sent two <i visions and some ffeld pie
ces to attack General Barlow's divisions—
The latter, although unsupported, and al
though it could not expect support, made a
most gallant resistance, and did indeed hold
the position which they hid been ordered to
maintain, for some time. But they were out
numbered more than two to one, and were
literally pushed buck upon the main body of
their corps. Further than that, the rebels,
6eeing a whole Union division in full retreat
and having by this time repulsed the assault
of the Fifth corps, foil rwed up the advantage
which they had gained with such vigor, and
pressed back our lines so far, that General
Meade's headquarters Wert considered in
danger, and w\; removed without cer
emony a considerable distance to the rear.
General Grant's 5 o'clock attack was made
an hour later. It may be said to have bsen
insde by the whole army, for a gobd portion
of all the corps were engaged in it. It was
repulsed, the same as the assault of the Fifth
had been repulsed,but with even great
er slaughter, and the enemy, at nightfall,
held their portion uushaken. On the llih
the terrific conflict was renewed, the
rains began, and General Grant telegraphed
his determinatijft "to fight it out all summer
on that line."
On the 12th both armies were still on the
north side of the Po. Drenching rains pour
ed down, which made the mud knee deep.—
But a battle, in many respects, the hardest
fought battle of the whole campaign, took
place on this day also; and in this engage
ment not only was it necessary to bring the
reserves into action, but two divisions of
'he res:rred corps were very hi iiy cut

Mr. Lincoln's Bold Avowal ot the 13 jcuTH
<>l Abolitionism •
The Louisville Journal, in publishing Mr.
Lincoln's late letter to Mr. llodgcs, id the
Frankfort Commonwealth, makes the follow
ing commentary thereon. It is more just
and pointed than anything we couid say :
and in the closing words of Prentice, e
wv.'l call upon every Iree in-HI in the Union
to take up the guantlet of despotism which
Lincoln lias thrown down, and meet him and
his courtiers an.l sycophan.s at the Novem
ber election, with a determination to hurl
from power the unblushing advocates of an
absolute rule thai would shame the '• Auto
crat of all the Russias
" Mr. Lincoln's letter contains a more di
rect and explicit enunciation oT the doctrine
of absolutism than he has ever before made.
He says therein: " I feit tl.it measures, ,:h
erwise unconstitutional, might become law
ful, by becoming indispensable to the pres
ervation of the nation. R'ght or wrong. I
assume this ground, and now avow it. That
is to say, whatever he deems indispensable
to the preservation of the nation is lawful ;
which is to say his discretion is the supreme
law of the land, anything in the Constitu
tion or laws of the United States or of any
State to the contrary t -'.withstanding!—
This is a fair statement of the doctrine in i's
natmral and naked proportions. The doc
trine is simple absolutism. Mr. Line >!n
more or less openly has been acting upon
| this doctrine for the la t eighteen months •
but he lias never before so openly and br r.J
ly avowed it.
" We venture to say that the an- vis of
constitutional government may be searched
in vain for a parallel to this avowal. It is
I the most unworthy declaration that evi r
emanated from the chief magistrate of a five
country. If it does not awaken the people
to a due sense of the peril which the gov-
I eminent must encounter from the re-election
' of Mr. Lincoln or the election of any other
■d Republican, -r<ls cannot awaken them, un
! less followed by corresponding deeds eves
tnore flagrant than the edict of emancipation
' and the proclamation of reconstruction,
; though the consummation of Wese deeds
• threatens to involve the destruction of the
j< Republic. Patsiotic freemen of the Union!
i Mr. Lincoln has boldly thrown thegiuntlet
|of despotism at your feet. Take it up, and
meet him at the ballot-box in November
