our troops under Major-General Slocum occupied Atlanta yesterday at 11 a. m., the enemy having evacuated the night before, destroyed vast magazines of stores, and blowing up, among other things, eighty car-loads of ammunition, which accounts for the sounds heard by us on the night of the 1st instant. Our present task is, therefore, well done, and all work of destruction on the railroad will cease. By order of Maj. Gen. W. T. Sherman: L. M. Dayton, Aide-de-Camp. War Department, September 5, 1864-10.25 p. m.

rmed for the purpose of dislodging him. Being assigned to the second line and to the support of the Ninth Kentucky, I moved forward with the command. Soon after we were ordered to charge and take the enemy's works, but support failing to come up on the left, the front line fell back through my regiment in some confusion, causing, for a few moments, disorder in my ranks; but order being restored, I immediately threw up a line of works, behind which we remained until the night of the 5th of September, 1864, when the army began to retire toward Atlanta. My regiment marched with the command, reaching this camp on the 8th of September, 1864. Of the officers and men of my regiment much credit is due them for the promptness with which every order was executed. They have my unfeigned thanks. The casualties in the regiment during the campaign foot up as follows: Killed, enlisted men, 2; wounded, officers 4, enlisted men, 50 ; total, 54; aggregate, 56. Respectfully submitted.

. 85. report of Capt. Cullen Bradley, Sixth Ohio Battery. Sixth Ohio Battery, Arty. Brig., 4TH Army Corps, Camp near Jonesborough, Ga., September 6, 1864. Lieutenant: I have the honor herewith to present a synopsis of the part taken by the Sixth Ohio Independent Light Battery, during the campaign in Georgia, under Maj. Gen. W. T. Sherman, commanding Military Division of the Mississippi, commencing on the 3d day of May, 1864, at McDonald's Station, Tenn., and ending on the 5th day of September, 1864, on Macon and Atlanta Railroad, at or near Lovejoy's Station, Ga. I would remark that it is almost impossible to give a minute report. The unusual length of time consumed in making the campaign (a little over four months) precludes the idea. I would also state the battery has been commanded by three different officers during the campaign, viz, first, by First Lieut. O. H. P. Ayres, who commanded until June 1, 1864; second, by First Lieut. L. D. Immell, Buttery G, First Regiment M

No. 91. report of Brig. Gen. William P. Carlin, U. S. Army, commanding First Division, of operations August 17-September 8. Hdqrs. First Division, Fourteenth Army Corps, Jonesborough, Ga., September 5, 1864. Captain: I have the honor to report to the general commanding the Fourteenth Corps the operations of this division since the 17th of August, the date on which I assumed command. The positions of brigades and their unimportant movements prior to the beginning of the great movement against the Macon railroad need not be described, as the record of all such information would encumber the headquarters of the division and corps without affording necessary or interesting data. On the 26th of August the Second and Third Brigades were withdrawn from the position they had held before the enemy near Atlanta and marched to a position on the left of the Twenty-third Corps, the Third Brigade having preceded the other two, which position was held till the 28th, when the entire d
