1 1 THE OTTUMAVA COURIERJ i W.KORKIIt, Edltw. THS1KHM¥ Mny 12, 18 W. Lalc«t N«tr«. The Utest dispatches received yesterday noon, represent everything tcoing on well with Gen. Grant. He had beaten Gen. Lee at all points, and the two armies were engaBed i° a race for Richmond. The fighting of the four or five d»ys wu terriac, and our wounded are esiitnivted at 10.000, FredericksVir? wu* full of them. Thev will be removad to Washington speedily as possible, where arrangements for, their aocomadation are perfect. So fir the pros pect on the north side of Richmond is most cheering. On the sooth of Richmond, Gen. Butler has burned the Rai'road bridge at Stone Creek, below Petersburg, catting HI two Beauregard's forces at that point. Hte is a' Burmudi Landing, entrenched, and «ay« he can hold it, with sunplies, which have been ordered, against the whole of Lee's army. He al?o savs Gen. Grunt will not be troubled wwh any further reinforcements to Lee from ft-'aureenrd's force. Butfarim the key to Richmond in his hands. Fort Darling is reported captured. From Chattanooga the news is cheering Gen. Sherman is whipping the rebels in that quarter. Gen. Thomas has taken Tun nel Hill and our "forces were advancing on the enemy at Bnzzard'9 Roost, just nwth of Dalton, in three several oohimna, wider fcfc Pherson, Thomas and Sehofleld. A great battle w*g expected there on the 9th. The reports fiom Banks' department are not as favor: ble as could be desired. At last accounts Banks was at Alexandria, on Red River, and had been summoned to sur render. fie has been superceded by en. Canby, who has probably ere this arrived there. Supplies are also on the way. Strin gent orders 1'avegone to Gen. Banks to pro tect the gunboats on Red River at all hns?*rds. Gen. Steele has returned to Little Rock His expedition was not a success. lie saved most of his army, but lost 1400 wafion« with supplies. The 36th J.owa arc reported to be prisoners. "J '.

'Ai soon is filled your companies will rer portikt oncQ to Davenport, via Burlingtott. Jf»hn Homer, of this place, was arrested a few days ago, for beating his "better half," taken before Esq. Boyd, and bound ofer, and in default of $500 bail, was sent down to Derby's hoarding house, to medi late upon this breach of conjugal fidelity. Esq you will be sure to lose every cop ., perhead vote sho'd you be a candidate for re-eleciion, if you ibn't look out. It is true you had no jurisdiction in this case— the law made it your duty to bind Mr Homero"er to a higher court but then the Con-stitu»Rhun, Esq the con stitu shun pxpressly says that it's un-con-Mi-tu-tion all guaranuteed by Mason and Dixon's line and Missouri cum promise treasure, to make a man go to board with that abolition Derby just for whipping his own lawful wedded wife—his own property—a wife is property, so are jackasses and niggert—ac cording to the Missouri compromise aod the Congtiution both. Then he was a little elevated, just a little, not drunk, and this was only the seeond or third time in less than a year he didn't quite kill her, you know.

COMBINED LAND AND NAVAL MOVEMENT UP JAMES RIVEJR BUTLER AT PETERSBURG TEN MILES FROM RICHMOND TWO DAYS FTQUTTXG— THE REB ELS DRIVEN TWISTY MILES. Forward TOorcment. Headquarters Army of the Potomac, May 4.—6 A. M.—The Cavalry skirmfshfng and artillery duell ing will likely make UP iitfiy»frrTi¥Winfii •rwnuim order to march, issued from (Jen. Meade's hendqmrters yesferday mornini, was disseminated through the army by evening. General Gre»g's caval ry division, accompanied by a portion of a canvass pontoon train, moved yesterday evemnpf towards Richfordsvlllie, and was engaged, uiitH te at night, repairine the road to EPi«' Fhrd. Soon after mid night that d'vision moved to the ford named1 and estibli-hei a crossing. At midnight the 3d cavalry division, with another por tion of a cmvr»ss pontoon triin, left for Germania F»rd, ftve or six miles above tbis p'ace, to establish a crossing It is re potted at this hour that both effrts were successful. The advance- ofthe W enrfw, Hancock coiwiMinding, broke camp at midnieht and moved titmn Stevediburg and Riohfords viWe rood towards Ellis' Ford. The entire corps were on the march before 9 oNjfocV •his morning in the same direction and ex pected to effect a crossing soon after day light. The 5th corps, under Qen Warren, com menoed tnovir!» »t nvdoiglK. the advance', consisting of twro divisions of infantry and a portion of artillery, passed through Ste vensbuvg at midnight, closely followed by the remainder oj" the corps, all marching towards Gormania Ford. The 5th corps was closely succeeded by the 6th, under Sedgwick, which qu'tted camp at 4 a. m. and both the 5th and 6th corps are understood to be crossing the Rip idan at Germania Ford. The entire movement resolves itself into the crossing of the Raptdan at two fords towards the right flank of the enemy plac ing itself after crossing on a line nearly par allel with the river between Orange C. H. and Chancellorsville. At the present hour the movement is under way, and there is a probability that it will be successfully ac complished without severe opposition by Lee, to whom this bold push mu«t be more or less a surprise. It is not prohahle any serious eitgng-imnt wili 1»o f»u'»h? to-dav. WASIII.VQTON, the day's fighting, unless the enemy contests our advance io foroe. Washington, May 6.—Gen. In galls ays we have fought two days. The enemy are said to be retiring. There Reem to be on doubt that although nothing decisive has yet occurred, the enemy ha9 been foiled in his confident expectations of diiving Gen. '•rant back before his operations could he fully developed, and that Lee has been com pelled to give way. The fact is, the en emy has uniformly been able to strike his heaviest blow at the outset. Thus their suooess has always been owing. He has now failed. The casualties reported are Gen. Hays killed, and Gens. Getty and Gregg and Col. Hays and Gen. Owens wounded Gen. Hancock is reported to have received a slieht wound while rallying his tmn to resist A. P. Hill's onset. Two of Gen. Burnside's staff are reported wounded while carrying dispatches. WASHINGTON, May 8 —Their seems to be no doubt of the d^ath of Gen. Hays of Pitts burg. Pa. He held the position which bore the brunt cif A. P. Hill's attack, and fell at the head of his command just at the mo ment that support had been ordered forward to cfaoh hitn. At the latest dates Gen Banks was at Alexandria, and intimation has been given that he designed to leave that position.— Positive orders from Grant require Gen. Banks to afford a protection to the gun boats in Red River. His foroe is (strong en'tuirh under competent command, to bid defiance to any force the rebels can bring against him. Arrangement* for supplies will be made with energy and calerity by M=ij. Gen. Canby who has gone forward to the field under upecial instructions. WASOIKTOM, MAJR^ 8.-r-The Jlepubljcan Extra says: Grant hurled his entire army against tbe reoel army on Fnday. Lee was driven three miles, leaving 3,000 killed and 10.000 wounded in our hands.

The Timet' special from Jame« River the 5th has the following: To \fij G°n B. F. Butler I am told is exclusively due what ever oredit shall result from the inception and execution of the plan. When foil' weeks slnoe Lieut. General Grant visited Fortress Monroe it was for the purpose of ascertaining the views of General Butler respecting an advance upon the rebels bv way of the peninsula to be carried out In co operation with the grand armv of the Potomac. Gen. Grant had considered the various plans propo-'ed with this object in view but had committed to none and was inclined therefire to listen attentively ?o what Gen. Butler might suggest. The se quel proves that the proposition of Gen- But ler fully commended itself to his judgment n nd acqtiiesenoe. By the occupation of City Point there a splendid chance for exultation here and we are devoutly thankful that City Point has become ours without a struegla. The Union forces are securely planted in a splen didly advantageous position within 15 miles of the rebel capital. Our troops are landing as rapidly as possible. It is now 3 o'clock, and before nightfall tha greater part of'he immense army will be disembarked. Our line will stretch across the narrow strip of land, the left resting upon James River and then passing over the little river Appomat tox the prolongation of the line will reach to the James asrain, holding that al most insular position oalled the township of the Bermuda Hundred. Entrenched here with both flanks of the army protected by gunboats, we can bid defiance to Lee's co horts. if ant's sharp pressing drives them down upon ui. The position i«cun sidered admirable for seriously threatening Richmond. Lee's army is now between two fires, and should our cavalry raid seriously impair his communications south, stvMktMn will be added to his other troubles. HEADQUARTERS NEAR BERMUDA LANDING, May 9. to S. M. Stanton :—Our operations may be summed up in a few words. With 1,700 we have advanced up the peninsula, forced tbe Chickamauga and safely brought them to our present position. These were color ed cavalty and are now holding the po«itiop ss our advance towards Richmond. Gen Kauntg with 3,000 cavalry on the same day with our movement u the James River, forccd the Bltckwafer and burned the rail road bridge at Stopy Creek below Peters burgh cutting in two Beauregard's forces at that pojnt. We have landed here, entrench ed ourselves, destroyed many miles of rail road, and got a position. With proper sup plitfs we can hold against the whole of LeeV army. 1 have ordered up the supplies.— Beauregard wita a large portion of Lis com mand was left south of the cutting of the cutting of the railroad by Gen. Kaunt$.— That portion which reached Petersburgh under hiui I have whipped to-day, killing and wounding many, and taking utiuy prisoners, alter a severe apd welt contested tight. Lieut G«o.
