Atlanta to go up soon. --The Rome (Ga.) Courier contains the following pleasant hit at the vanity of its Atlanta neighbors: Gen. Johnston has fallen back on the east of Pearl river. Atlanta will be the next point of attack by Grant and his whole army. Gen Lee has recrossed the Potomac. Meade and his whole army will be on Atlanta in a few weeks. He is evidently striking for Atlanta. Gen. Bragg has fallen back to the Tennessee river. Rosecrans will be thundering on the walls of Atlanta in less than a week. He will raise the wind with his whole army in balloons, and Atlanta is the first point he will touch the earth after leaving Tennessee river near Huntsville. All these great Yankee Generals know that the sun of the Confederacy rises and sets in Atlanta. Pity but the public stores could be removed before these threes grand armies reach Atlanta, so that the internal Yankees might be compelled to perish or live on chinquapin and extortioners.
pt. Wolcott to Danville. Staid all night there. July 7th--Arrived at Nicholasville. Ordered before the Provost Marshal. Sent on to Lexington. Arrived in the afternoon and immediately ordered to prison. Visited by some sweet, pretty, and kind ladies. God bless them! I know He will. July 8th.--Great rejoicing in Lexington over the fall of Vicksburg. (I do not believe it.) it is a great disaster, one among the very worst that could befall us. But even if it is so, and even should Lee's army be destroyed, and every town in the South burned, the rebellion would be unsubdued. There are a hundred thousand men in the South who feel as I do, that they would rather an earthquake should swallow the whole country than yield to our oppressors. Men who will retire to the mountains and live on acorns, and crawl on their bellies to shoot an invader wherever they can see one. A writer in the Enquirer, who was with the expedition, gives an interesting account of it. We make some extr
t at 1 o'clock the trap fell, and Joseph Ford and John K Ould, of the 10th Regiment Ohio Volunteers, were launched into eternity. It was a solemn scene--one calculated to have a warning impression upon all who witnessed it. The fighting in Gen. Lee's retreat — the engagement at Amissville. The Yankee letter writers thus describe the whipping that Carter's Michigan cavalry brigade got near Amissville, Fauquier, while on their way to close up the gaps and prevent Lee's "escape" The engageLee's "escape" The engagement took place on the 24th ult: The 5th Michigan were in advance. The enemy's pickets were met within half a mile of the cross roads, when the advance guard was dismounted and deployed as skirmishers, and one section of Pennington's battery, under Lieut. Clark, was placed in position on a creed at the left of the road, supported by the 1st Michigan, Maj. Brewer. For half and hour or more a lively skirmish was kept up, when the advance skirmishers were reinforced by three squadrons from
nd gardeners in the neighborhood of Richmond bids fair to increase the now exorbitant prices of all the necessaries of life, if it does not lead to starvation and famine among the poor. If a farmer has a fair crop growing, and one-half of it is stolen or destroyed, he must double the price on the half left in order to meet his obligations. The attention of the authorities has been frequently called to the importance of protecting the agricultural districts, but apart from the order of Gen. Lee, making commandants responsible for the depredations of their commands, nothing has been done. Not only are stragglers and skulkers allowed to overrun the country and plunder at pleasure, but scores and hundreds roam at large from convalescent and other camps, and, like the locusts of Egypt, devastate the country through which they pass. In this city, besides the military hospital patients, there are about one hundred thousand mouths to be supplied with food, and the supply must come
