l information received by the press yesterday was that Sherman had destroyed the Northwestern and Atlantic railroad from Atlanta to Altoona, the Chattahoochee bridge included. This movement is difficult to understand, except as explained by unofficlroad can be understood, though it will still appear a superfluous labor. The reports had it that Sherman, having burnt Atlanta on the 15th, last Tuesday, had set out for Macon with three corps, amounting together to thirty-five thousand men, and that he had, on yesterday, reached Jonesboro', twenty-two miles south of Atlanta.--If there is truth in these accounts, as we believe there is, Wheeler has much to answer for. It devolved upon him to watch Sherman and keep posted as to his movementsnt to consider what point he calculates upon making his base of supplies. His destruction of the railroad northwest of Atlanta proves that he has cut loose from the Chattanooga base. He must, then, be looking to some point on the Atlantic or the

The New York Tribune insists that the Confederates delivered a serious assault at Atlanta on Wednesday, the 10th, but were repulsed. This "assault" has already been noticed from Southern sources. It was a skirmish by Young's cavalry brigade. A Washington telegram says: News from General Sherman is anxiously awaited; but it mf, and he will have good reason to regret his strategy. A telegram from Washington on the 14th says that no dispatch has been received from Sherman for several days.--It adds: It is not known how long our forces may continue to occupy Atlanta. This will depend on circumstances soon to be developed. Whatever may be General Sherman's programme, gentlemen who are good judges of military matters anticipate damaging results to the enemy. The Cincinnati Commercial of the 12th says:
abouts. The Yankee papers are already filling up with localities, routes, &c., on the way from Atlanta to Charleston. So far from this being a "bold move" on the part of Sherman, it is the last andon under the crown of his hat. Three corps of the Federal army, he assures me, have returned to Atlanta. The advance guard left Graysville, a little village sixteen miles from the Tennessee river ane, made arrangements to leave Thomas in command in Middle Tennessee, and then took the cars for Atlanta, saying, according to a letter in the Cincinnati Commercial, "that he had settled Hood's hash."lletined a great victory. The Augusta Chronicle, giving an account of how affairs stand at Atlanta, says that, on the 6th, the Twentieth army corps relieved the Twenty-third, which gave rise to not over eight thousand troops in the city. Parties along the line of the State road, between Atlanta and Marietta, represent that the trains go up to Marietta daily heavily laden and return empty.
