NEW YORK, April 7. — To all Editors: The Herald claims to have information of Lincoln having held a conference with Judge Campbell and others, in Richmond, by the advice and consent of Davis, for peace.

OFFICIAL] WAR DEPARTMENT,
WASHINGTON, April 7.

Maj. Gen. Dix: Gen. Sheridan attacked and routed Lee's army, capturing Gen's. Ewell, Kershaw, Button, Corse and many other general officers, several thousand prisoners and a large number of cannon, and expects to force Lee to surrender all of his army. Details will be given as speedily as possible, but the telegraph is working badly.

(Signed) E. M. STANTON,
Secretary of War.

PHILADELPHIA, April 7 — 1:15 p.m. — Jay Cooke has received a dispatch form H. D. Cooke, at Washington, stating that Lee's whole army is cornered and have surrendered. This is positive.

WASHINGTON, April 7, 11 a.m. — Major General Dix: — The following telegram, announcing the victory won yesterday by Gen. Sheridan over Lee's army, has just been received by this department.

E. M. STANTON, Secretary of War.

CITY POINT, April 7, 8:30 a.m. — Hon. E. M. Stanton, Secretary of War: — At 1:15 p.m. at Bradsville Station, General Grant sends me the following from General Sheridan.

(Signed) A. LINCOLN.

April 6, 10:5 p.m. — To Lt. Gen. Grant: — I have the honor to report that the enemy made a stand at the intersection of the Burks Station road with the road upon which they were retreating.

I attacked them with two divisions of the 6th army corps, and routed them handsomely, making a connection with the cavalry. I am still pressing on with both cavalry and infantry.

Up to the present time we have captured Gens. Ewell, Kearshaw, Bulton, Cross, Debarry and Custis Lee, several thousand prisoners, fourteen pieces of artillery with caissons, and a large number of wagons.

If the thing is pressed I think Lee will surrender.

(Signed) P. H. SHERIDAN,
Major General Commanding.

CITY POINT, April 7, 9 A.M. — To the Hon. Secretary of War: — The following further intelligence is just received.

[Signed,] A. LINCOLN.

BURKESVILLE, VA., — To A. Lincoln: — The following telegram is respectfully forwarded for your information.

[Signed,] U. S. GRANT.

SECOND ARMY CORPS, April 6, 7, 30 P.M. — To Maj. Gen. W. S. Webb: — Our last fight, just before dark, at Tailor's Creek, gave us two guns, three flags, a considerable number of prisoners, two hundred wagons, seventy ambulances, with mules and horses to about one half the wagons and ambulances. There are between thirty and fifty wagons in addition, abandoned and destroyed along the road, and some battery wagons, forges and limbers. I have already reported to you the capture of one gun, two flags and some prisoners, and the fact that the road for two miles is strewn with tents, baggage, cooking utensils, some ammunition and materials of all kinds. The wagons are across the approaches to the bridges, and it will take some time to clear it. The enemy is in position on the heights beyond, with artillery. The bridge is partially destroyed, and the approaches on the other side are of soft bottom, and we cannot advance to-morrow in the same manner that we have to-day. As soon as I get my troops up — we are considerably missed — I might push a column down the road, but it is evident I cannot follow rapidly during the night.

[Signed,] A. A. HUMPHREYS,
Maj. Gen.
