. Our picket line now extends six miles beyond Jonesboro', with no enemy in sight except scattered parties. The following dispatch has been received from General Hood: "Headquarters Army of Tennessee,"September 9, 1864. "General Bragg: General Sherman has ordered the removal of all citizens from Atlanta, to go elect, and proposes a truce for ten days to provide for the transportation of such as may desire to come South. I have accepted, and am making arrangements. "J. B. Hood, General." Prisoners report that thirty thousand of Sherman's troops will be mustered out of service this month, and that the term of many of them expWe destroyed fifty miles of the Tennessee railroad, and also several trains and much property. In every fight, thus far, with the enemy we have been successful, capturing and damaging a large number. Our loss is about one hundred killed and wounded. No prisoners have been captured from us in action.' "J. B. Hood, General."

It is this that should engage the serious reflection of the people of the United States. They are just now in a state of absurd elation over the fall of Atlanta; but the fall of Atlanta, they ought never to forget, did not involve the fate of General Hood's army — an army as large as that with which General Lee now confronts the enemy in Virginia. On the contrary, General Sherman is unable to advance at present; and his success is only one of those indecisive successes which have characterized this war on both sides from the beginning. Whether it can be called a success at all is problematical, and remains to be determined by future events. There is food for reflection to the Northern people in these things. They are promised now,
