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.
