not far from the Court-House. They left the Court-House, and went in the direction of the Southside Railroad, which they attempted to strike between Concord Depot and this city, at the railroad bridge over James river. In this, however, they were foiled, and at latest accounts were on the southwest side of Candler's Mountain, only four miles from this place. This party is certainly cut off from their main body, and their capture seems inevitable. B. [by telegraph] Lynchburg, Va., June 20, 10 P. M. --Very little news of a definite character is received from the pursuit of Hunter by our forces. A rapid and continuous cannonading was heard in the direction of Liberty, Bedford county, this morning, and until 2 P. M. to-day. It is satisfactorily ascertained that a fight of some magnitude occurred with the enemy's rear guard beyond Liberty, and that our forces are still driving them, and made considerable captures to-day. B. Mr. Charles E. Taylor of the cavalry s
From Petersburg. Petersburg, June 20. --Since yesterday nothing of great interest has transferred. To-day there has been some cannonading and some slight skirmishing. Yesterday Gen. Meade sent a flag of truce to Gen. Beauregard, requesting permission to bury his dead, which was not granted. The City Council to-day held a meeting and sent a committee to Gen. Beauregard to ask his advice in regard to the removal of non-combatants. Gen. B. replied that no notice had been given by the enemy of a purpose to shell the city, but it would be prudent for those who could to leave the lower part of the city, and for the women and children to remain in cellars. Very few shells have been thrown into the city to-day. Grant's lines reach from James river across the Appomattox to within two miles of the Weldon railroad. Advices from Liberty this morning say that Hunter had been pursued through that place, and that he was retreating towards Buford's Gap in consider

From North Georgia. Marietta June 19. --The enemy to-day are shitting their right and throwing it farther towards the east. Information from undoubted sources says that their troops are much disheartened and demoralized from recent numerous defeats and sickness. Deserters in squads of ten per day are constantly coming into our lines or leaving for their homes. Skirmishing continued today with unimportant results. The roads are heavy from the recent rains, which retards military movements. [Second Dispatch.] Marietta, June 20. --The enemy's cavalry made a demonstration this morning from Big Shanty towards Canton, on our right, and were met by a division of ours, when they precipitately withdrew. Our army is being daily reinforced by slightly wounded and convalescent troops. There is no croakerism or criticism in our army, but the greatest confidence is manifested by both officers and men in the capacity and ultimate success of Gen. Johnston.
