Dick Taylors's splendid achievements in Louisiana and Gen. Forest's in Tennessee, have rarely if ever been surpassed during tbe war. Indeed everywhere, since the campaign opened, our arms have been victorious, except in a few small skirmishes, The news from the army of Northern Virginia, is of the most encouraging character.

The term ef service of thousands of Meade's men expires early in May, and as they do not desire to go home dead, they will do but little fighting. We are cxpeeting by every mail to hear Of the beginning ofthe great battle, which certainly cannot be deferred many days longer. -«-*.» • « Superintendent or the Va....
