The War News. Nothing later than the official dispatches of General Grant, published yesterday, have been received concerning the surrender of Lee's array. Telegrams from various points of the country, state that the rejoicings of the people oyer this most important eteathave been very general, and highly enthusiastic. A steamer from New York was dispatched yesterday afternoon, one day In advance of her regular day of Eai'.ing, to take the news of General Lee's capitulation to Europe. A proclamation has been issued by the President of the United States declaring that the ports oT Richmond and a number of ott er places in the Southern States.which are mentioned, including Charleston, Savannah and Mobile are closed, and that all right of importation, warehouseing and other privileges shall cease until again opened by order of the President. Any vessel from beyond the United States, or having oa board articles subject to duties, that shall attempt to enter any of these ports will be confiscated. The President is authorized to issue the proclamation by an aot of Congress passed in regard to the collection of duties etc. The Navy Department received yesterday official information that General Steele, c romanding the 13th Army Corps, after he left Pensacola, Florida, had met with decided success. On the 26th of March, he captured 250 prisoners, including Gen. Claustoc, who was mortally wounded, seized two trains at Evergreen, ten miles above Pollard, on the Montgomery (Alabama) railroad, and destroyed the railroad track. ' General Steele then moved towards Blakely, on the east side of Mobile Bay and a short distance north of the Spanish Port, which, according to the latest accounts from other sources, the Union troops were vigorously bombarding. One of the Philadelphia papers piofesse3 to have information that Gen. Stonevain has cut the railroad between ; Danville, Va., and GreeEsboro', N-C , and that Gen. Sherman has occupied Raleigh, N. C. Up to a late tour last night the report had not been officially confirmed. Deserters and refugees, who came into Goldsboro'. N. C, report that the enemy have evacuated Raleigh, and have no force of any aecount between it and Goldsboro'. A letter from the Army of the Potomac, received in Washington, gives some further particulars relative to the recent captures by General Sheridan. Five of the six guns captured were new rnl of the Armstrong pattern, and had never been used. Among the two hundred wagons that fell into the possession of the Union forcrs, was. one belonging to General Fitzhngh Lse, with all his baggage. Generals Ewell, Kershaw, Bulton,-Coise and Custns Lee, who were cap. tured by General Sheridan, arrived at City Point ca Saturday, and were to have bean sent to Washington. Admiral Porter's report of the destruction of the rebel fleet in the James river has been forwarded to the Secretary of the Navy. We pubiish it in full elsewhere. President Lincoln returned to Washington from Richmond, Va-, last Sun lay evening. - . A rumor was current ia Memphis on Saturday that the cavalry force or General Thomas' command had captured an I bnrned Selma, Alabama. The RESorncE? of Mexico Thj interest which attaches to Mexico as our nsrtr neig fiber has been increased recently by The change which has taken place in her f jr.n of government, and a review of her c tadition and resources is at this time conse juenily not out of place. The area of Mexico is 829,915 square miles with a population of 6.390,524 souls, her territorial extent being greater by 50,000 square miles than the entire Pacific ilape or the United States. Of the population but 2.105,-549 are pure whites, the remainder, consisting cf 6.222,00or mixed races and 35,805 negroes. There are in addition 32-.2,ooo wild Indians, end of the whole population but 4,769.?vi9 are returned as civilized. The foreign population, the majority of whom are Spaniards, amounts toUG OQO. - The. annual value cf agricultural prodaetisns is atout 6IC5,000,C0O. but the mineral resources of the countrj- are one of its chief elements cf wealth, the products of the mines reaching some 100,000,000 each year, and that, too, under an inefficient and uncertain system of labor. Besides gold and silver, antimony, copper, coal, diamonds, iron, lead, tic, zinc and other minerals abound. With aU taase natural advantages, the country, when Max-milian assumed power, owed a debt of 173,-000,000, and the budget showed aa annual deficit of over jtS.OCO.OOO annually. The frequent civil wars, which have d?3olatel a country teeming with mineral and agricultural wealth, have been the chief cause of its want cf progress,-ihere having been in the last forty j-ears no less than forty-six charges of gorernmsnt. With a stable and liberal administrative system, which would protect and promote development, Mexico has within her, ia situation, climate, soil and productions, all that is ca'culated to lead to grandeur and power. - Whether the imperial rnle is best adapted to accomplish these ends, remains to be seen. Under Santa Anna it certainly was not. President LiscsLif asd the Washisgtoj Navy-Yabb Work ait?;.-The workmen of the Washington navy -yard yesterday, headed by a band of music, visited President Lincoln, Secretary Welles and other public func-tioiiaries, to congratulate them upon the recent Union successes. The following is the speech of Mr. Lincoln: - I am very much rejoiced, my friends, in the fact that an occasion has occurred so pleasurable that the people find it impossible to refrain from giving vent to iheir Xeeiiags. Applause. I suppose that arrangements are being made for a for rral demonstration either this or to-rnorro evenitg. A voice That's too late. Should such demonstration take piece, I, of course, will be expected to respond, if called npon, and if I permit you to dribble all out of me now, I willL j.ve nothing left to say on that occasion. Laughter and applause I observe that you have a band of music with you. I propose having this intPrview closed by the baud performing a particular tune, which I will name. Before this is done, however, I wish to mention one or two little circnmsiaBces connected with it. I hh.ve a 1 vi ays thought that "Dixie" was one of the best tunes I had ever heard. Our advtrs-bries over the way, I know, have attempted to appropriate it, but I insist that on jesterday we fairly captured it. Applause. I referred the question to the Attorney General, and he gave it as his legal opinion that it is now our property. Laughter and loud applause I now asi the band to favor us with its performance The band immediately complied amid the cheers of she crowd. Letter from Ex-Settator Foote. Ex-Sen-alor Henry S. Foots has written a letter to onetf the Ntw York papers, denying that he cme as a steerage passenger in the Etna to avoid the "passport nuisance," as charged, and stating that his object is to be permitted to return quietiy to Nashville, there to await events. He avows himself to be in favor of peace, and the submission of the South to Federal authority. He says th3t he reported to Gen. Dix in the expectation that he would be placed under arrest, and nas no fault to find with the government officials. Bei le Boyd. The famous Belle Boyd seems to have come to giief in England. A pitiful statement appearfd in the papers a short time ago. to the effect that she had been turned penniless outheraf hotel, thel icdlord retaining her Iut gage, as security for his bill. She was also said to have parlea with all her jewelry, &c., and to be in a state of great destitution. This doe3 not speak well for the Southern refugees in London, or for their English sympathizers. London Lett tr. Marylahd Rfbet. Regimeht. It is report ed that nearly all t f the Maryland regimmt of infartry attached to the late A. P. Hill's Corps of the rebel army were captured among the lare number of prisoners taken in the battle near Petersburg, on Sunday, the 2d list. The re iment, it Is known, fought very despf rauly in the battle of Gettysburg, losing heavily, and with its service since had become very much reduced in numbers.

Views and Opinions of the Press The Anticipation ol" leace, Ac. The surrender of General Lee's array to Lieutenant General Grant, under the terms and conditions presented by the latter, is of course the all-absorbing subject cf remark, so tt at the views and opinions of the press generally will be read with more than usual interest. We, therefore, subjoin a nutnoer of extracts: From the Washington Chronicle. This news will go everywhere like an angelic visiter. It will heal the sick, restore the drooping and fill all the land with thanksgiving. It cannot be a voice of woe to the South, for there is no carnage and death in the terms, and no humiliation in a defeat which could not be resisted or longer delayed. Accepted in this sense, it will be good for those who have yielded too much to the rebel leaders; rejected or disregaTded.it will only increase the tortures ot which they are so profoundly tired. The surrender of Lee is the surrender of the whole rebel Confederacy. From the Potomac to the Nueces from the Mississippi to the Gulf from the wilds of Texas to the morasses of Louisiana and the everglades of Florida there wi!l soon not be known or seen an alien flag, or an organized hostile column. The bolt that struck: the head of the serpent parali zed its extremities; and that which is now alive in the land is love cf country the exquisite sense of an established Union; the knowledge that we are free in all our borders: and, let us not forget cur abiding gratitude to God, that he has led us through this bloody war and crowned us with these priceless blessings, by such a peace as becomes a Christian people. From theN. Y. News, anti-war dem. The terms of surrender are honorable to both generals. As between soldier and soldier, General Grant has accorded to his fallen adversary such warlike honor as it is possible fcr the conqueror to concede to lessen the humiliation cf defeat. May the political chief of the Repnblicfollow his example. It is useless to deny that, by the rule of civilized warfare, the cause cf the Southern Confederacy has received a blow that, by the usual sequence cf such military fortune, should decide the contest. After such an overwhelming disaster in the field, peace between the contestants is the natural result. But peace may t e forbidden, even in this conditio?., by an unnatural policy on the part of the victors. For the sake of republicanism, for the sake cf the blood of common origin that, pulses from the exultai-t hearts and the proud thcogh stricken breasts of victors and cf vanquished, for the honor of our country and for the peace of future generations, let Americans in their hour cf victory be just, magnanimous and generous to Americans in .heir hor.r of de'e .t. Peace, if honorable to both sections, would be the most welcome boon that could be votichsaftd to a people so visited with heavy burders and afflictions. From the New York Tribune. The rebels lost much in the loss of their capital. In the less of Lee they lose everything. Lee, net Davis, is their leader. He may te the hea '- of a faction, not of a people. Davis is a politician; Lee a soldier. The military head gone and there is nothing left. If Jchnstonis wise he will follow Lee's example. If he is not wise he will earn the execrations of the South for the useless waste of blood that must follow the necessity of his annihilation. With hira it is aquesiioaof days. He must tow to fate and succumb or accept twift destruction. Tcexe is no other alternative. Ttie most fainthearted, tna most hopeless now at the North need waver or denbt no longer. The most desperate, the rncst determined at the South can no longer hope cr struggle. The rebellion is over; suppressed overwhelmed destroyed-- fought dewn by strong arms, and stoat hearts, and vise heads ended ended as rebellion should be by utter destruction. From the New York World. The correspondence betweea Gritt and Leo, by which, this noble triumph is Echie ved and attested, does tonsr alike t-j the had and the hn rt of the victorious commander and entitles the vanquished to all the re?pect which justly attends tbe frank ard magnanimous abandonment of a strcg-gle become visibly hopeless, and only to be prolonged at a hideous, because an utterly useless, waste of human life and human happiness. We cannot pause to dwell upon the work which may-still remain to be Cone. Rebel airaiis ars still ir. tbe field; the forms of a Teoel government still nominally exist; but only the extremist unwisdom cn our own part can galvanize into any sustained and formidable life the body whereof the heart has ceased to beat with the occupation of Virginia and the disbaiidir g of the airnv of Robert E. Lee. From the N". Y. Herald Lee s army has been for six months the only respectable obstacle to our arms, and now within seven cr eight days, it has been completely wiped out of existence not a man of the whole farce that lately held Richmond remaining in arms. Within that short period the bravest, best organized and most successful army cf the rebellion has been utterly swept away. Never was there a more decisive campaign than this last one of General Grant's. Grantwill now,nodonbt, immediately turn bis attention to another foe. It sluald be remembered that it is now six days since L?e wps beaten at Petersburg and compelled to evacuate that place and tbe rebel capital. Johiston was, in all probabilitj-, informed of that defeat on the same day. that Davis was informed of it the 2d inst. and though he v-as then at Raltif h, it is no. in the least likely that he is there now. He has had aban-dant time to' reach Danviile.and no one ought to be surprised to hear of his being there. Hs pTesc-r.ee there would bring him within easy reach of Grant; and with Grant on one hand, Sherman on the other and Stoneman not far from Danville, we might soon hear of another surrender as cleaa and complete as the one just made by Lee. The op rations against Mobile will be greatly afTVeted by this immense success in Virginia It "has been a point of honor with the rebel efficers defending that place to hold out as long as Lee did, and that the last stronghold of the Gulf States should not be taken while a stronghold was sill defended in Virginia. The news of the fall of Richm nd and the surrender of Lee wi l therefore satisfy the honor of the men at.MoV.ile, and their surrender will be, in all liklihood, the n"xt news from the Gulf This same gloriou news wi'l doubtless disperse the flny-threo thousand rebels on tbe other side the Mississippi, who adhere so loosely to the rebellion that they would not cross the river to he'p it. And thus, in whatever way we look, we see daylight shining throujh thi3 miserable remnant of rebellion. (From the New York Times. The news is tone the Jess welcome because prematurely announced, none the less glorious at d important because for many days considered a foregone conclusion. It is the end cf the Confedeiacy. There maybesp radic r-fforts here and there; Johnston may venture s battle; Mobile may undertake a half resistance; the rebel troops west of the Mississippi may indulge in irregular cam-paigrs; but Lee has surrendered Li, their Commander-in-Chief, and practically Dictator; 1 ee, upon whose shoulders, by universal cor sent, has for half a year rested the fortunes of the rebellion, has abandoned their cause as hopeless. He surrendered an army never surpassed in bravery, in suffering, in persistence in a bad cause an army that had everything to gain by success everything to lose by defeat. The corner-stone is removed the edifice has fallen beyond the possibility of restoration. It is the greatest and most important event for this country sinco the imperishable Declaration of July 4, I77fi, the most momentous fact of the century as aflfdet-ing the stability of democratic government. It will be hailed, not only in our own land but wherever mankind aspires to freedom and progress, as a turning point in the history of man. From the N. Y. Times, 2d Editorial. The great struggle is over. Gen. Robert E. Lee and the Army of Northern Virginia has surrendered to Lieutenant General U. S Grant and tbe Army of the Potomac. The thiillirg word peace the Rlorious factof peate are now once again to be realized by the American people. The profound joy of the nation in this auspicious result cannot be expressed In effervescent enthusiasm and noisy huzzahs, but will appear in the form in which it is so fitly and opportunely proclaimed by the Secretary of War ascriptions of praise to Almighty Gcd, and offerings of honor to the great leader cf our armies, whom he has used as bis instrument to save the nation. The hisiory of blood, the four years of war are brought to a close. The fratricidal slaughter is all over. The gigantic battles have all been fought. The last man, we trnst, has been slain. The last shot has been fired. We have achieved, too, that for which the war was begun that f r which our soldiers have so long and grandly fought, and that for which so many thousands of brave men have laid down their lives. We have achieved the great triumph, and we get with it the glorious Union. We get with it our country a country now and forever rejoicing in universal freedom. Tbe national courage and endurance have their fall reward. The event occurred on Palm Sunday the day which commemorates the triumphal entry of Christ into Jerosalem It will heace-forth be a patriotic as well as a pious holidaz in America. . - : - Just four years almost to a day has tu war APRIL 11, 1865. PRICE TWO CENTS. lasted. It was on the 13th of April, 1SS1, that Sumter was surrendered to the rebels. It was on the ith of April, 1S65, that the great rebel army was surrendered to'the power of tbe Uiicn. The surrender cf the army of General Lee solves a tfcoasand difficulties that but lately threatened us in the future. It simplifies the work of pacification in the South. It gives hope for a speedy restoration of order and fraternity. The terms proposed by Grant are very simple, and doubtless had the approval of the President. AVegetall the rebel oflicers and soldiers, all the arms, artillery and public property; but the efficers retain their side-aims, private baggage and horses. Each officer and man will be allowed to return to their homes, and will not be disturbed. We have r.o icea that Jo. Johnston's forces or any other of the rebel bodies will be of any trouble after this great event. Lee nominally only surrenders his own immediate army; but he isecmmaEder of all the armed forct i of the rebellion everywhere, and in one of his letters he speaks about negotiating with reference to the whole of the Confederate States forces under his command. Thiswill undoubtedly be the upshot of the whole affair. Tbe great rebellion is crushed. The Republic "is saved. Peace comes again. To Heaven be the praise. From the Philadelphia Ledger. With the destruciion of Lee's army, there is nothing left of the rebellion but the heterogeneous and badly beaten battalion under Johnston. They were unequal to the task of fig htirg Sherman's army alone. With that great soldier pressing them from the South, and Grant's liberated heroes coming down cn them from the North, they can have no resource left but to follow the example sat them by their General-m-chief,and lay down their arms. That this will be the result we have not the slightest doubt. For them to continue the rebellion further wculd be but murder, and would call down upon them not -only tbe wrath cf their own people and the nc w suspended vengeance of the indulgent government they have drenched the land m blood to destroy, but would bring npon their hesds the just indignation of the world. We may therefore regard the rebellion as at an end,and locking forward to the blessed return cf reace and a united country, there is before the United States a career of prosperity, honor and power, far bsyond the brightest anticipation of the founders of the republic, and before which all the splendors of ctr rast history will be no mere than is the l ght of dawn to the fall glories of the risen sun.

It appears that Lee's army was hk ; rapidly west as his limited trans j on. ton and the demoralized co&dition of nis troops would permit on the road between Amelia Court House and Jetaersvilie. The cavalry having gained possession cf the Dcnviile railroad scmetime previous wcie not long in discovering his vrhtr?-abouts, the 5th Corps being well up in support and having built entrenchments during Tuesday nigct, preparations for an attack were soon made. The country here i3 very uneven, with thick wcois and deep ravines, mhkirg it extremely difficult for cavalry to operate to any advantage. The second division under General Danes were principally engaged, and the gallant iranner in which they charged and drove the enemy, is highly spoken cf by those wto beheld P., but the rebel infantry came up to the support of their cavalry, forming in the woods, and attacking under cover, our men were forced back on our infantry, but not until a thousand' prisoners, six guns, a train of wagors a mile long, together with the drivers, were in possession of tbe brave second division. Fire cf the guns were new, aEd cf the Armstrorg pattern, said to have been a present from the English government to the Corledtracy, and had not yet been used. They are a beautiful specimen of manufacture. The wagons, about two hundred in number, were mos'ly empty, and were burned f.fter the mules had been cut loose and brought in. Along with this train was a wagon belonging: to General Fitz Hugh Lee, containing his baggage, &c. Intfcis engagement Sheridan took three hundred prisoners, among whom was Bragg's chief of artillery.

Flag Ship Malvern, April 8, 1SC5 Sir: As the movements bave been of a military character end have been regularly reported to the War Department, I have not deemed it recessary to report anything to the Department. After I was satisfied that the rebels were about to evacuate Richmond, I commenced removing the obstructions below How'e'.t's battery, and in the course of the night tft jr, succeeded in getting a chantel through and removed the torpedoes. The gunboats moved up to Drury's Bluff, where the obstructions again presented a bar to further progress. On the 4th of April I accompanied the President up to Richmond, where he was received with the strongest demonstrations of joy. We found that the rebel rams and gunboats had all been blown up, with the exception cf an unfinished ram. the Texas, and a small tug gunboat, Othe Beaufjrt, mounting one gun. The following is a list of vessels destroyed: Virginia, (flag ship,) 4 guns; iron-clad Richmond, 4 guns; iron-clad Fredericksburg, 4 guns: iron-clad Nansemond, 2 guns; wooden gunroit Hampton, 2 guns; wooden vessel Roanoke, 1 gnn; wooden torpedo tender Shrapnel, and Patrick Henry, school ship. Some of these vessels are in sight, above the water, and may be raised. They paTtly obstruct tbe channel where they are now, and will either have to be raised or blown up.

Meet Insr of Legislators and Others to Consider a Proposition from President Lincoln. Washsikgtos, April 10. Reliable information from Richmond, by a gentleman who left there yesterday, represents that General tehepley, by order of the President, has given safe conduct to Senator Hunter to come and go from that city. He is supposed to be on his estate in Essex county, fifty miles from Richmond. There were no prayers offered in the Richmond churches yesterday for the President of the United States, and none for the Southern Confederacy. The citizens generally regard the war as over, and further resistance, therefore, as unwise. The Richmond Whig of Saturday says: ' "The statement that there would bt a meeting last evenir- g of such members of tbe Virginia Legislature as still remained in this city was not strictly correct. Therj wasto meelirg of legislators or others, but simply an informal conference and consultation of private itdividuals, among whom were five or six members of the Legislature. The motive cf these gertlemen in coming together was to hear from Judge Campbell the terms nron which President Lincoln hasexDressed himself as willing that Virginia might return to the Union. "Messrs. Jos. R. Anderson, David J. Burr, Kathaniel O. Tyler and H. W. Thomas were appointed a committee to inform the Legislature ard Gov. Smith of President Lincoln's terms; and Judge Campbell was requested to accompany the committee, who were to leave the city so soon as passports could be procured. It was said to be probable that they would get off this morning. We prefer not to state our understanding of Mr. LincolE's terms, as our information on that head is not official." The only information received in Washington of President Lincoln's proposition, here referred to, is that it was of a very liberal character. A number of gertlemen returned from a visit to Richmond to-day, among them Hon. Jas. G. Blaine, member of Congress from Maine. PrccIamatioB by the President of tUc U. S. Washisgtos. April 13.

Several hundred persons gathered before the Executive Mansion this afternoon, at hall past five o'clock, when frequent calls were made for the President, who appeared, merely to say that if the company had assembled by appointment, some mistake had crept into their understanding. He Mad appeared before a larger audience than this one to-day, and would repeat what he then said, namely. He supposed, owing to tbe great good news, there would be some demonstration; He would prefer to-morrow evening, when he would be quite willing, and. he hoped, ready to say something. He desired to be particular, because everything he said got into print. Laughter. Occupying the position he did, a mistake would produce harm, and therefore he wanted to be careful not to make a mistake. A voice "You bave not made any yet."
