Petersburg; is in poaaeesiou of oar forces. An outer line of lutrenohmenta, two miles from the town, woe stormed by General Smith on the 15th lost., and the town was occupied by Gene rals Hancock and Smith the next day. The fact that General Grant has been able to get Petersburg so cheaply may doubtless be accepted as an evidence that his passage of the James river had taken General Lee by surprise. 1 i Had General Lee contemplated the passage of the river as a possibility he would have throws a large force, if not his whole army, into I'eiershun; during the two (lays in which Grant was making his way *o the river. He had ample t.iuu to reach Petersburg, and It was ce-taialy 'ho point for him to bold. His army is of m re consequenoe to the confederacy thau Richmond is, and he might better have risked that now worthless city on a single batl e than to risk the very existence of his army In the attempt to bold a nominal capital, hopelessly Isolated from its whole territory and from ail means of suppo.t and nupply. Le-e'b failure to bold Pet ralmrg is a satisfac tory evide ,eo of Lis Inability to cops with Grant. Campaigning in the well beaten track from the Ktpidau to Richmond, and in tbs well measured and well tried country on theChicka hominy, Lee did very will; but the moment tbat a grand and uew idea cornea into the struggle he fails. If Lee is to bold Richmond, Fort Darling will be tbs next point of interest. But the despatch from Mr. 8tanton states somewhat obscurely tbat Lee is preparing to hold the west baak of the Appomattox. Near Petersburg the Appo mattox runs troa west to east, and if we are to understand that Lee Is holding the north bank we may, perhaps, Infer that ks Is holding a point on whloh to rest his lsft wing in an attempt to retreat towards Danvillo. Tun Gou> Bru..- This measure, which now only r? quire* the signature of ths President to become s law, will, m all likolibood, if It re ceive* that signatuie, havt a very singular effect upon lbs country, and an effect that la or gins tors do not contemplate. It renders Im possible any transaction of brmineas in ?be ordi nary irercantile way. No one ian "promise to pay'" nia <<*bts with aay reference to tbs ual versa)ly afeepw-d standard of value, aad It must therefore annihilate healthy credit.

The removal of the Arcjy or ttie Polemic from the north side of the CbieVahominy to t?-e oouth side of the Jnme* river ptaoe* Geoei*' (?miit ia a toi-Hi admirable position for work agaiDMt I*a's *battei?d and diminished army ard the rebel capital. The capture of P? feraburg of Itself Is tu fa) port ant Bt'-p towards th? r?daotioa of Rush uicuul; but it ia only,an item amoug tb? many advantage (ralneo by General Grant ia,xhift!ng from ti.o north to th? south ?ide of the c'ty. First, the transfer of bis army from tit? deadly ?wamps and junirlcw of the Chicks homiuy to the dry, rolling, healthy country between Peterb burg ai d Richmond ia a mailer for general congratulation. Secondly, the entire araj of General Cutler, a powerful reinroroement, has thus been added to the Army of the Pofotuac, together with the irou-clads and gunboats of Admiral Lee?another tremendous reinforce ment. Thirdly, in transferring hia base of supplies to the James river, General Grant's active army ia again practically reinforced to the extent ot the Gfteeu or twenty thousand men relieved from the duty of guarding the railroads and common highways UHed on the Chiokahominy for transportation purposes. But, moat important of all, in a strategical view, General Grant, with tho magnificent army which he has uow concentrated imme diately under ha eyo on the south side of the James river, at once cuts off Richmond from all the 8011 thorn railroad lines through which the city and Lee's army are fed from djy to day. Lee must, then, make up bis mind verr soon either to give battle, In order to reopen his communications with hia sources of subsistence, or to abandon Richmond undor cover of the night, in order to save bis army; for If he attempts tho experi ment of abutting himself up behind hia fortifi cations, like Pembertoo, he will inevitably sur fer the fate of Peniberton. We think it highly probable that Lee will repeat his old trick of Aotietam, Gettysburg oud VTilllameport?a hasty evacuation between two days?carrying, this time, Jeff. Davis and his Cabinet along with him (the rebel Congress, taking timo by the forelock, have already cleared out), and that he will movo off up the James river, on the north sido, aleng the canal, towards Lynch burg, which ia the only route of escape likely to furnish subsistence for his army. Geueral Leo would have now the opportu nity Ter stealing a march upon Washington, if he only had ine mo ms and facilities for moving in that direction. But all the railroads to the north and northwest from Richmond have beta so seriously broken up by Generals Grant and Mosby that It will tako thousands of men and months of labor to repair thom; aad | If they were not broken up thoy would ! be useless to Lee with the whole intervening [ conn try between Richmond and Washi ngtoa exhausted of its provisions. Take, for instance, the Shenandoah valley. In 1863, in advance of hie Northern aggressive movement from the Lspidan, General Lno established couveniont depots of provisions, lrom point to point, down said valley, by which hia army of one hundred thousand mou, on limited rations, was enabloi to reach the bountiful supplies of tho loyal 8taUa of Maryland and Pennsylvania. But how la It now! From Harper's Ferry up to Ftaunton, a distance of one hundred and thirty miles, the Shenandoah va.ley has been ttoor I ongbly scoured and oleaned oat by General Hunter, while the country beyond 8tannton, towards Lyochhurg and the Southwest, has been as thoroughly harvested by Generals Ave^ rill and Crook. The rebel army in Richmond, therofore, can not uiove northward, because the roads and all tho facilities in that direction for army truns portatioo are destroyed and because the coun try in exhausted of its oattle and com, pigs and sheen, bacon and poultry, everything. On the other hand, the annv of General Grant stands new across the roads oa the south side or Riebmond. To give him bstiio there Lee will be utterly defeated; to ata.d atill ,n Rich mond s, on his part to prepare for a surrender a 'a Pi mberton; and what, then, can be do but steal off in the night up the James river, and next, by a roundabout way, movo down upon the desperate enterprise of a junction with Joe Johnston Y In any event, the fall of the rotel capital is not far off; and then, as with tho lota of Richmond and the retreat or decisive d.Teat of Lee, Old Virginia will bavo 00 further interest in J.-fl. Davis, the seventy-five thousand veteran Vir ginia soldiers now In his service will leave it in disgust, the people of North Carolina will then revolt against him. his kingdom will fall to p.oces, and Nassau or Mexico will bs his only chance of escape. Ma xi him an avti thk Mux i cans.?We pub lished in yesterday's edition en interesting ac count, from onr special correspondent in Mexi co, of the arrival of tbe new Emperor and Em press of tbat now empire at Vera Crux, and of their reception by the people. It Is remarked that in no wise did the subjeeta of Maximilian demonstrate any j?y at his arrival. They were of ooar*e carious to have s look nt the impe rial eouple, but beyond thla ware as calm aid impassible as tho,.gh born In tboeo cold re gion! which gave his Majesty birth, instead of under the tropical rays of Old Sol. Ever moot ostentatiously polite whore ladies are con cerned, tbe Mexicans on this ocoasioa seemed to havo laid aeide their usual affability to tbe fair eex, as far as tbe Empress was concerned. They stared at her, but gave no welcome. Uhocked, no doabt, at this reception, thsir Ma jesties hastened sway from Vers Crux. They would not linger to parteko Is the festivities which tbe French bed prepared for them. Pre texting a fear of Yellow Jack, on want tbe im perial cortege to Soiedad. Bvsu the priests, wi o in tltc cathedral were wa'iing to bless the new camera, were ignored la their hsaly re treat To the u? prrjndleed, the reception of Maxi milian at Vera Crux paints in dark colors tbe real position of the intruder. The people of Mexico do not want this man to rale over them, and. spite of French inlitcidat'oua and French bribes, they h .ve shows th e beyond all doubt II ths now Emperor was thue received in Vera Crus. a s?apart, a place where the inlnnioe of flie foreigner is mare readily acknowledged, what niiist he expect from Ihoee of his subjects who wl II not come oniler this Influence. Naught hut hatred and a determined opposition. Tbe Mi'X cane ore evidently averse to the ruler forced upon them hy tbe bayonets of the French, und thev will plot and rebel against h ii until the tlms st aii lxive srflvwd when we ?hall cou's fo.wsrd sod rid McaiCq of liiyee Il iba 't-r* who h?vc to uncerwmotilouely seised npoa and overthrown bor government. Thia piece of work a a have before us, and It ahomld he ta Napoleoa?the prima mover in I ho nefarious scheme?that at our earliest leisure we stmll attend to the matter thoroughly. In the meanwhile Maximilian, surrounded by his Krenoli, Austrian aud Belgian guard, may keep up a mockery of an Imperial government iu the Halls of the Monlezuwas. But hit reign will be abort aud uusatielaotory, even though bo should make every concession in hie power to the people. He may appoint Santa Anna a | marebal, or any other prominent Mexican; but the people will not accept this as ao equiva lent for their lost republio; and should these mati turn egalnst him, as Santa Anna Is almost sure to do, tbo people would aide with theio, aod eut Lis Maj<t?ly's throat with infinite gusto. All tbene thiugu taken Into consideration, it may readily be supposed that Maximilian will fully realise the faot that "uneasy eets the bead which wears a crown," and ha will doubtless be very glad when ha shall have once more rvaohed Miratnar, which place he should not have left to undertake the dangerous experi ment of raising an empire on this continent Tl?e Chlcugo Coa*?aH?? and ths Paaas faction* The agitatioa of the postponement df the Chicago Convention has brought to the surface some very siDgulnr developments. First and foremost In tbo advocacy for a postponement ?ro the organ of the Woods, the Daily News of this city, and the peace organs generally. This class of journals Jed off in this movement, and nave done their utmost to bring about that re sult, That alone should be sufficient evidence to all who wish the success of the ticket noral uulcd at that convention to look with suspicion upon this movement and unite In their protest a ;ainst postponing. The adjournment of the Chicago Convention is simply the abandon ment of the party and the throwing up of the Presidential contost upou the very threshold ot toe campaign. If postponed, before the day arrives for Its assembling tl?e different ele meats of the party will have been absorbed and swallowed np between the administration t cket nominated at Baltimore and the radical democracy, or Fremont party. There will be but the fag ends and rump of the opposition forces left to make a beggarly show at the con vention, when held, and to support the ticket nominuted. It will prove the defeat and rout of the Union and war element or the demo cratic or opposition party, by giving tbe peace faction time to rally thoir force* and swallow them np at Chicago, as t. n earnestness of the peace organs and the activity of Vallamlighara clearly indicate. The only salvation ai d tbe only chance for success lie In the immediate assembling of the convention and the uononation of a tiled aud succeasiul military mon like General Grant. V> ith him in the field as early as July, the campaign is won and the victory gained at the outset. The movements of Fernando Wood, and his calling trom the byways and from tbe moun tain recesses tbe spirits of tbe defunct and di lapidated peace leaders in tb.s State, are not without significance at this time. It is well known that upon Fernando Wood being shelved in Tammany Hall he organised a Mozart Hall j party, for the purpose of forcing Tammany to I bargain with him. This he accomplished dur ! iug the political revolution in the fall of 1862, and aucooeded in secnrlng bis clectiou to Congress. He tbeu endeavored to secure the positiou of United States Senator from tbe Leg Ulaturo of 18GS; but the manageva of the demo cratic party in the country districts would net touch hira. Then csme the bargain between Tointr.any and Mozart lest year. They were partially successful in this city at the Novem ber election; but the people would Dot stand* ..econd bargain, and repudiated it at the char ter election In December. A new dodge, therefore, bus to bo resorted to now. Tbo time for clectiou of members of Congress is approaching, and now b? calls up rbe peace oommlttee, with a v.ew of placing himself in a position to make new bargains. All this noisu and contusion iu regard to the uasembl'og 01 a convention in this State Hwaua the re election of the Woods to Congress from thlacity, with Chanler, who seems to have lost all bone of returning ia any other vay ex cept ub s? flyer ou tLe ta'l of tbe kite of the WAll who have watched carefully the political manoeuvring of Fernando Wood ruu.'t kuow that his whole aim is self. His own .individual schemes sre at the bottom of all that he does. The peace movement now trumped up Is only for the purpose of securing a bargain that will enable hun and Brother Baa to be returned to Congress?nothing more, nothing less. Tbe postponement of the Chicago Convention nntll he can get his peace party In trim and in a position where bo can drive a favorable bargain before the candidate for the Presidency is nominated is one of the Arte movea In bia pro gramme. Fading In that, he will then tarn his attention to tbe factions aod parties in this city, with the idea of bringing about a salt ef his peaea scarecrows for a seat in Congress for another term. With this condition of affairs It is all import ant that lbs managers of the Chicago Conven tion turn not to the right nor to the left; pay ne attention to tbe appeals for postponement, hot mere forward with all speed possible and nominate their ticket Tbey must place before the people a man of wboaa reoord there is no doubt ne mast be a peraon committed by deeds to Ibe suppression of tbe rebellion and tbe vindication of the rights of tbo constitution, America aod American tews and Interests. With sash a record success will attend their efforts, the peso- faction will be demolished, leaving only a few peddling and trading peace politicians here and there to tell their fate, who will only exist aa a warning to nil future nsplreiita of that stamp.

Grant.?From the dilemma of the uncomforta ble necessity of a siege into which General Grant's campaign from the Rapidan to the Chlokabouiiny bad apparently brought him be haa brilliantly emerged on the banks of the James river, where be now initiates an entirely new series of operations against the rebel artuy. Grant's movement to the James, aod his establishment of a new base there, is a magnificent judgment between tbe administra tion and General McClellan. It endorsee General McCleilaa's manoeuvre, and justifies in tbe amplest manner all that we have ever nntd of that soldier's great genius. When General McClellan was practically in tbe posi tion that Grant Is now In, and when, with a suitable reinforcement, bis oh a noes to over throw the rebellion would have been exactly what Grant's chances now are, be was ordered away from that great vantage ground by the President, or tbe military nonentities whp advised that functionary, and then followed a series of awful disasters. McClellan was ordered from tbe James river by the new Alexander who bed assumed the command of our armies, and ordered the weather to be propitious and the roads dry oa a certain day early in that year. Mr. Lin coln's reason for ordering General MoClellan from the James river wae this:?We had fifty thousand men on the J.imes river nn;l fifty thousand on tbe Rapidan, and the rebel army was between these two bodies. Consequently, to operate effectively, tbe two bodies should unite. If tbe army on tbe Rapidan wont ts that on tbe James, Richmond might be taken. It the foroe on the Jamea joined that on the Rapidan, Washington could be defended, though it was not threatened, and Richmond could be menaced, and menaced only. Conse quently the argument was in favor of sending the force on the Kap.dan to the Jum .s. But if that force were joined to McClellan's army he wonld stiil have the command; for his outright removal at that time would have alarmed the country and made a panic. But if hia force were withdrawn and added to the force In the valley he would be quietly put out of the way, to the infinite delight of the radicals. So McClellan was ordered from the James; aud that was perhaps tbe most important exercise of his military prerogative and genins that trie President has given. His other military acts and reasons have been like it in character. Mr. Lincoln's Bmutty jokes have sometimes a little point; but his military reasons are la mentable. It is pleasant to the people and to the soldiers who adore General McClellan to see hie plans and ideas, so bitterly denounced and jeered by tbe admiuiatn'tiou, approved by the unprejudiced voice of eveuts, and by the well pondered acts of so great a soldier as General Grant.

Dbbatrs?Cvlti BLK RkMIHSsRs;- OF rm WaSMIWJTONCoRIUWPONC knt of TiiK Absoclatbd Pri^s.?A few days a'.nce a dobate of a most interesting and import ant character occurred in the Senate of the Uulted Slatv*. It was board upon a statement made by Senator Wilson, of Masaaeiiu^elts, Chairman of the Senate Committee ou Military Affhtrs, and involved statistical information relative to the strong a of tbo Union armies, Ac., of v.;fy gre ?t value. From tbi, official exhibit it appear* '.hat since the 17th of October last six hundred thousand men, not including black men, have enlisted or re-imlistol in our armies, and that one hundred aud twenty-five millions of dollars kave been expended in bounties since that period; thnt within the past year *even hundred thousand men have been put in the field, and that since General Grant com menced his march toward the rebol capital re inforcements to the number of forty-eight thou sand men, exclusive of the one hundred days men?f-ome two thousand more?beve been forwarded to him. By the latter statement it will be remarked that General Grant Is stronger at this moment than when be commenced his grand march toward Richmond; for, no matter bow much the reported Union losses may be exaggerated by rebel newspapers and rebel sympathisers in the North and in Europe, it is officially known that the actual losses ef Gene ral Grant in all his fights, from the Raplden to the Chlckahomlny, have not exceoied twenty six thousand killed end wounded. Aboat the time the debate in which this infor mation wee elicited ooomrred, we reoeived a brief spools! despatch la relation to it; hut, so far as the debate itself was concerned, the report ef the correspondent of the Associated Press was as dumb aa If nothing ef the kind had been uttered. We have bad repeated occa sions to refer to the gram carelessness or dere liction of duty and manifest partiality of this Associated Press correspondent; and, as it be hooves the press of New Tork to bar# a com ~t ive applied In kla oaee aa speedily as possible, there will he no farther occasion for oomplaixt on this subject.

The 7Wbum yesterday acknowledged erery thing la deotar log that '"lie will do good here." His return and the circumstance* connected with It bear rery atrong evidence of a pee concerted arrangement 01 the part of the ad ministration and Yailandigham'a friends, whist is nothing more nor less than a political dew tioueering dodge. They couaid.w, as the IH tune deoiared yesterday, that YalUndigame'i open advocacy and hia parti oipation to the campaign as an advooate of the Chicago nomi nee will drive tboiuwli of war dam oo rata orw to the support of Lincoln and Johnson. F ? that reason he is more available to the man far ing politicians at Washington at home oo ut stump than hidden away lu Canada. It Is a W8ll known fact, that the deouoorvy threw away the glorious fruit* of their triump* in the fall of 1862 by their silly and ridiculous declarations that tbeir sucoou was a pe?e? triumph. The saocess of Governor Sry* ?r? was simply the result of disgust of the prv?i!? In the management of the war by the po. '-.cja fanattos who were in power at Washington. The people rallied at the polls in the of the democratic ticket, believing that * change would bring about a more energetic aitd successful prosecution of the war and m earlier suppression of the rebellion, fcrn no sooner were the results of the elections >a the fail of 1862 known than the Wood* tt>? Vallandighams and the copperheads generally pronounced them a peace victory. This was followed by the nomination of Seymour ia Con necticut, the silly letters and peace speeches written and made in bis support, tho Vallao digham letter of Governor Seymour, the tomi nation of Yallandigbaui for Goveruor, the peaes meeting of the Woods ia this oity, ar-i the appearance of that class of extreme rivz on the surface everywliere who mouopoi'ia-d all the councils of the pany until the pe-fis became disgusted. The result was that out of two evils they chose what they considered t. ? leaser, and wheeled into liue iu the supput oi the republican party in the tall of 186J. T'.ns the good results of the conservative triumph ol 1862 were all thrown away. The repuo ea* leaders, realising th>* fact, aro now perfect'y willing that Yallaudigham shall retu.ra ?vSd make all the fuse thai be pleases. Tbey hare no objection to bis being elected delegate ie Chioago, Bad lionized there to the fewest ex tent, believing, that it will repeat the result?' last year by causing a diversion of a strong vote from the Chicago nominee to the Iia)tto|'>r? ticfc?c.
