Sherman's Army Ready to move against Johnston.


NEW YORK, April 13. — The Herald's Newbern dispatch of the 8th, states that the entire re-equipment of Sherman's army had been completed, and that it was ready to enter upon a new campaign for the sudden extinguishment of Johnston's military power, if that rebel chieftain shall choose to offer further resistance after hearing of Lee's surrender.

The news of the capture of Richmond, of course, caused great rejoicing in Newbern.

The country on the south side of the Neuse river, between Newbern and Goldsboro, is entirely cleared of armed rebels, but on the north side of that stream, there are some prowling bands.

One of these, on the 7th, captured and burned a steamer and two barges, laden with supplies for Sherman's troops, on their way up the river. This is the only interruption which Sherman's communications have suffered.

Gen. Mower has succeeded Gen. Williams, as commander of the 20th corps, in Sherman's army.

The Herald's Richmond correspondent says the people of Virginia and city of Richmond in particular, appear to be at last fully-satisfied with their experiment of a Southern Confederacy, and are making preparations for a return of their State to its future loyal position in the Union.

Influential citizens there are still engaged endeavoring to secure the best terms they can. The feeling of the majority of the Richmondists against Jeff. Davis and other leaders of the rebel government is represented as having become very bitter.

At least 5,000 of the white people of Richmond are now entirely dependent on the government and northern parties for their daily supply of food and but for these would starve.

Government officers are now issuing 12,000 rations a day to these destitute dupes of secession.

The work of clearing up the city and taking possession of mills, manufactories of the rebel government and abandoned property of all kinds, and putting them in proper order, is being vigorously prosecuted under direction of Gen. Shepley, and for the necessary labor which this involves, a large number of negroes are employed.

The amount of property thus secured to the government is enormous.

Much secreted property has been discovered in dwellings of citizens, including, it is said, vast quantities of articles sent from friends in the north to administer to the wants of imprisoned Union soldiers.

The remains of Col. Dahlgren has been discovered near Richmond, exhumed and sent to Washington.

It is rumored that Gen. Lee arrived there Monday the 8th, and proceeded quietly to his residence.

The Tribune's special from City Point, says that a special train was to go to Burkesville last night, to bring in Gen.'s Grant and Lee and staff, who return to Richmond to-day, in accordance with their parole.

Gen. Grant's army is reported to have turned its face eastward for the purpose of receiving supplies and recruiting.

Gen. Sheridan's prisoners, captured previous to Gen. Lee's surrender are on their way to City Point.

The World's Goldsboro dispatch of the 9th, says Sherman's army are in the best possible spirits and ready to move. The trains are all loaded and the troops re-clothed.

Gen. Sherman has advised the army commands to be prepared for rapid marches, so that speedy results may be expected.

The Times City Point special says that Lee has expressed a desire to depart for Europe with the rest of his family, at an early day. He is much affected by his defeat.

Davis deserted him and is retreating on his own account.

CINCINNATI, April 13. — Preparations are being made for a celebration here to-morrow. There will be a general turn out of all classes.

The Gazette's Lexington, Ky., correspondent says Gen. Palmer is at Eminence, Ky., for the purpose of receiving the surrender of all Confederate forces in the State, including Col. Jessie's command. Those who do not surrender will be declared outlaws, and the people will be called upon to hunt them down.

A Lieutenant and seventy-one men surrendered yesterday to Gen. Hobson.

The Gazette says Gen. Carrington, at Indianapolis, is charged with being a defaulter to the amount of $30,000; and also guilty of frauds in wood contracts.
