By a single battle we succeeded in expelling the invader from the soil of Georgia, the teeming Egypt of the Confederacy, at a time of much solicitude in the public mind, and under circumstances which seemed propitious to the successful advance of the enemy into the very heart and stronghold of the country. Our success can only be measured by what our grief and loss would have been if the enemy had reached Atlanta and overrun the State. I have endeavored heretofore to pay due homage to the skill and gallantry by which this great victory was achieved.

A species to the Intelligencer, dated the 30th, says: "In the exchange of wounded prisoners to-day we had twenty-five hundred Yankees, and they had forty-one Confederates." Gen. Dan. Adams has determined to remain in the Yankee lines until his condition is so improved as to justify his safe removal. Gov. Brown reached camp to-day, and was enthusiastically cheered by the troops. The enemy still held Knoxville.
