, famous as the regiment organized and disciplined by Gen. John C. Brown, lost Maj. F. C. Barber and Capt. D. G. Alexander, killed at Resaca, and later on, at Powder Springs, the gallant Col. C. H. Walker fell. Under his command the Third had maintained the reputation won at Fort Donelson. At Raymond, Miss., under very trying ci commanded the regiment with unsurpassed skill and courage. Maj. John P. McGuire, Thirty-second Tennessee, was badly wounded, and Lieutenant Waddy killed, at Powder Springs. Capt. J. B. Ward, Fifth, an officer of unusual merit, was killed at Resaca. Lieut. John Talley, Ninth, fell at Resaca; and all along the line from Dalton to the close of the campaign in September, there were few of them surviving to record the action of their commands. Col. Edmund Cook, Thirty-second, fell at Powder Springs. Major-General Stevenson said of him and Colonel Walker that they were models of the Southern soldier and gentleman. Colonel Cook was commanding Brown's brig
ion changed as suddenly as the scenery in a theatre. Sherman's letter was dated September 20th, and on the 21st, Hood moved his army from Lovejoy's, where he had remained since the capture of Atlanta, to Palmetto station, on the West Point railroad, twenty-four miles south-west of the national position. From this place, on the 22nd, he announced to Bragg: I shall, unless Sherman moves south, so soon as I can collect supplies, cross the Chattahoochee river, and form line of battle near Powder Springs. This will prevent him from using the Dalton railroad, and force him to drive me off, or move south, when I shall fall upon his rear. It is strange to note how the very movement which Grant and Sherman were discussing, had been considered nearly as soon by the rebel general. He even appeared to desire the national advance, and purposely left the way open for Sherman into Central Georgia. Anticipating the probabilities of the campaign, Hood continued: Would it not be well to move a pa

nnounces heavy fighting near Dallas Wednesday. The writer states: "We drove the enemy with great slaughter; one hundred of the wounded of brigade have reached this place" The artillery firing heard to-day in the direction of Dallas and Powder Springs was rapid and heavy all day. From B Gen. Reynolds who was wounded in the act on, and who reached here this evening, we learn that the fight on Wednesday was exceedingly spirited from 5 o'clock P M until dark, The musketry firing was fierard. On our side Hindman's, Stewart's, and a part of Stevenson's divisions were engaged against Booker's corps of the enemy. The fight took place at New Hope Church, about four miles this side of Dallas, and between the latter point and Powder Springs. Gen Reynolds states that the enemy were repeatedly repulsed and were driven back with heavy loss, until night put an end to the pursuit. It is his impression the as had enough of it, and will try a little by way of relief. All a
s generally attributed to a scarcity of ammunition, caused by the interruption of his communications. But few shells were thrown into the city last night. One set fire to a frame house in Peachtree street. Loss small. [Second Dispatch.] Atlanta, August 17. --The enemy's cavalry have retired from the vicinity of Fairburn, a portion crossing the river near Campbelton. Trains are running as usual. The enemy is busily engaged fortifying on the north side of the Chattahoochee, principally along Powder Springs and Campbelton roads, in the vicinity of Sweet Waters Everything is remarkably quiet along the front. The enemy opened fire upon the city from another gun, supposed to be a 64-pounder, planted on the Marietta road. A slow fire was kept up all night, resulting in the killing of one person. It is generally believed that the West Atlantic road was out at Ackworth by a portion of our cavalry on the 14th instant. News from that quarter is anxiously looked for.
ware, has won hundreds of victories — has really never sustained a defeat. It has pressed vigorously on from one victory to another without demoralization or disaffection, but it has never passed through the fiery ordeal that the Army of Tennessee has. Crossing the Chattahoochee, we marched nearly west, and bivouacked five miles from it. Continuing the march the next morning, we turned a little to the north, and reached here yesterday about 2 o'clock P. M. We are now six miles from Powder Springs, on the road to New Hope Church, and about twenty miles to the west of Marietta. We have all been waiting patiently for an order to resume the march this morning; but I suppose General Hood is waiting for the completion of some of his arrangements. October 2.--In one hour we are on the war path again. General Hood has unbosomed himself to the army; and every private of the army knows what is expected of him. General Hood has received positive information of the fact that Sherman h
ort that General Howell Cobb, with from six to eight thousand militia and three brigades of cavalry, attacked the enemy and was steadily driving them in. A soldier who had been captured by the Yankees, and who succeeded in effecting his escape, reports that there were not over eight thousand troops in the city. Parties along the line of the State road, between Atlanta and Marietta, represent that the trains go up to Marietta daily heavily laden and return empty. Two corps were at Powder Springs under marching orders. The Yankees were sending off the negroes and prisoners to that point. Their movements are involved in mystery. The last foraging expedition went out two weeks since under General Gerard, with eight hundred wagons, foraging in the vicinity of Stone mountain and in Gwinnett county. They carried off large numbers of beef cattle, hogs, sheep, poultry, corn, fodder, peas, potatoes and household furniture, and returned with about six hundred and fifty loaded wago
