, Savannah Daily Herald. FRIDAY. APRIL. V, 1865. fbo.h oi:b evesl\g edition OF YESTERDAY. Acgubta Personals.-We learn from friends mming through the lines that the latest sub terfuge adopted by the fire-eating secession ists of Augusta, to shield themselves from the array, is the “Detective Corps.” The entrance fee to this nice little Mutual Preser vation Society is fifty thousand dollars.— Such ardent and self-sacrificing patriots as Jesse Ansley, Wm. and Thomas Roberts, Porter Fleming and others of that stamp, who. regardless of the general want and misery around them, have fattened upon speculation in rice, flour, bacon and other necessaries of life, avail themselves of the protection of this inquisitorial committco; and, while they hunt the h usbands and sons into the rebel army, abuse the unprotected families left behind. Mims, the former blood thirsty enrolling officer, whose name is yet a terror iu the hcrthes of Augusta, has been removed, but has succeeded in escaping the service by gettiug a position in the Quarter master’s Department. The most popular branch of the service in Augusta among the chivalrous young gentlemen who have flocked to that inland place of safety, from Charleston, Savannah, and else.vhere, is the Navy! The “Naval Brigade ” iB now full iu numbers, and com posed of the flower of the South. They are becoming most proficient in their duties, which, iudeed, are only loafing, gallanting the ladies, and drinking the vilest whiskey. There are serious grounds for apprehension, it is said, that the youug gentlemen here are going to the bad at a fearful rate, and the young ladies with them. The Presentation to Col. C. A. Rice.— A few days since, our correspondent at Hil ton Head, gave an account of the presenta tion of a splendid horse and equipments to Lt. Col. C- A. Rice, Chief of Military Police, and Assessor of the District of Hilton Head. The Colonel has made in a letter to the donors, in which, after expressing his gratitude for the magnificent gift, he gives utterance to the following manly declara tion of his soutiments and future course of action, which every public officer would do well to consider, when placed in a similar situation: I have before declined testimonials, both because I deemed myself unworthy of them, and in that I think the reception of them, by an officer charged with executive duties, from those whom might come within the Bcope of his official capacity, was manifestly improper, by either influencing his action in an involuntary way,or giving rise to injurious suspicious of sucli an effect. I should have refused this generous gitt, had I known of it in advance, or had I not felt sure that it was a sincere expression of esteem, dictated by no improper motive, with the full kuowledge that the impartiality of my official conduct could in no way be affected by any private consideration. I hope this explanation will not be deemed a modification of my expression of sincere thankfulness for so flattering and so accept able gifts, from tfiose. iu whom I take so much interest; but I deem it proper to make it, in justice to myself, as well, also, as to those who have so complimented me. If the circumstance has any influence on my course as an officer connected with the civil govern ment of a post, it will be, I can promise, to make me more scrupulously just anu impai tial in what I do; more zealously devoted to the thorough performance of all my duties; and more cautious that every official act shall meet the approval of all reasonable peo ple. I am, very respectfully. Your obedient servant, C. A. Rice, Lieut. Col. 144th N. Y.. & Chief Mil. Police. Passengers per Steamer L t .S. Grant for Hilton Head.— Mr. Rush, Henry R. Ryder, Wm.

The Shenandoah.— The latest intelli gence from Melbourne, Australia, brings in formation that the Shenandoah, the rebel cruiser, was still at that port awaiting per mission from the Govornor to coal and make -repairs. The Captain promised to observe strict neutrality, and get to sea again as soon .as possible. The Shenandoah was thought to be too late to do much mischief, as there was scarcely an American vessel trading there. The stories of her depredations have been much exaggerated.

The Naval supply steamer arrived here to day with Philadelphia dates to the Ist I am indebted to Capt. Jesse Merrill, Chief Signal Officer, for the following synopsis of latest news as signalled from the flag-ship. Some of the news is latter than that contain ed in the papers. The grand movement has begun; all our armies are in motion, and the severesj fight ing of the war is expected. The news from the Army of the Potomac is important. The 24th Corps hold Hatcher’s apd Gravelly Runs. Gen. Sherman ie at Dinwiddie Court House; he is flanking the Rebels on the right. Gen. Grant has taken the field in per son, and his headquarters are at Gravelly Run. Enemy ara unable to check our ad vance; the sth corps ha* had a sharp fight, they suffered terribly aud were obliged to retreat. Gen. Thomas has formed a junc tion with Geo. Gillem, in East Tennessee; his army Is moving towards Lynchburg. VI. S. W. SECOND DHBPATCH. Gold closed in New York on the evening of the 31st at 151 1-2. Iu my first despatch, instead of saying the sth Corps retreated, should have said that they lost only three hundred, (300) men, and that they drove the enemy a mile with severe Confederate loss. -It is Sheridan and not Sherman, that is at Dinwiddie Court House. Gold closed at New York at 151 1-2. m. S. W. We are in expectation of despatches which may arrive at any moment; should they come after our Evening Edition has gone to press, and should their importance warrant it, the news will be immediately issued in an “extra.”— Ed. Hiltok Head, April 6. Tho following are despatches from the New York papers of the Ist; Headq’rb Army of the Potomac, ) March 29. 1865. > The route taken by a portion of this army is the same over which it lias travelled sev eral times heretofore, viz; the Vaughan and Halifax roads, running southwest across Hatcher’s Run; the column started at 3a. m. this morning. A large cavalry force un der Gen. Sheridan took the Halifax road to wards Dinwiddie Court House. The infantry column crossed Hatcher’s Run on the Vaughan Road, but met with no opposition until they arrived within a short distance of the Boydtown Plank Road, where the enemy’s pickets were found, and were driven back. Griffin’s Division was sent up the Quaker Road, and about 3 o’clock in the P. M., a division of the enemy made its appearance, and not knowing the strength of our force, formed in line and charged, but the rebels were repulsed with heavy* loss. A number of prisoners were taken and brought in; they said it had been a complete surprise to them, as they had expected an attack in the vicinity of Fort Steadman, and that these troops had been marched there to meet it. It is believed that the Rebels were hnrry ; ingmen toward the Southside Railroad, in the j afternoon in the hope of being able to prevent ! its destruction, but great confidence was felt that Sheridan would be a little ahead, and that by the next night w’e would have news of its destruction at some point near Burkos ville. If this should be accomplished, it is claimed that the evacuation of Petersburg and Richmond must follow. W. D. McG. The following incident is told as occurring at the recent New Jersey railroad accident.— Moses Goddard, a Vermont soldier, who was dying ot Lis hurts, remarked to a lady who held him in her -arms and endeavored to .^ B ,^ aßt agonies by bathing his face: * ** B riglit, do so, Fanuie, I have served my three years, and come home to die,” no doubt thinking he was addressing his wife.
