s been no further change in the situation than that which resulted from the skirmish on Saturday morning. The fall of Atlanta. We have received some particulars of the fall of Atlanta, and of events immediately preceding, which will be perused with interest. On the evening of the 1st instant the enemy left his entrenchments and moved against our works in heavy force. Four successive and furious assaults were in turn met and repulsed, but on the fifth charge the force thrown against Govan's brigade was so overwhelming as to force it back, thereby flanking those portions of the line which still stood firm. Under these circumstances — outflanked and in want of ammunition--General Hardee was compelled to withdraw, which he did in the direction of Lovejoy's, beyond Jonesboro'. General Lee, who appears to have held the right of our line in this day's fight, also withdrew during the night towards Atlanta for the purpose of forming a junction with General Hood and the main army.
rtally wounded. Our loss was light, as we fought behind earthworks. Hazon's division captured two flags. On the morning of the 1st September, the Fourteenth corps marched along the Macon road, destroying the track for several miles. In the afternoon they assaulted the rebel entrenchments, and after a desperate conflict, lasting for two hours, drove the enemy out, taking two batteries (including the celebrated Loomis's Battery, taken from us at Chickamauga,) and some battle-flags, General Govan and an Arkansas brigade. Early in the night Lee's corps moved away to Tom Stewart's corps, left in Atlanta, the command devolving on Hardee, who retired along the Macon road. Hood, finding the situation desperate in Atlanta, also retreated on the 1st, burning nearly a thousand bales of cotton and eighty-six wagons laden with ammunition. At the break of day on the 2d our army followed in hot pursuit. The object was to get between Hood and Hardee, and cut off one of them.
