M., last Friday, the telegraph operator at Millen announced that Sherman was within four miles of the place, and that he himself was on the point of bidding it a hearty adieu. Nothing has been heard from there since. He had then been within twenty miles of Millen for nearly a week. When Sherman advanced on Milledgeville, one of his columns moved against Macon. Official information was received here last night that this column had disappeared from the neighborhood of Macon. It is now, no doubt, moving to join Sherman in the neighborhood of Millen, and it was for this that Sherman has been waiting. His forces being massed, he will strike out for his objective point, which, it is believed, is Darien, rear the mouth of the Alabama river, fifty miles south of Savannah. It is reported that General Dick Taylor has been put in command of our cavalry now operating against Sherman.
