Cartersville (Georgia, United States) (search for this): article 8
From a courtier from Gen Johnston's quarters we learn that the Yankees are entrenching south and east of Peavine and Pumpkinvine creeks. Our forces maintain their positions on the commanding eminences to the north of Altoona, and are entrenched on the crests of the hills to the southeast. We hold the key to the positions the Yankees are monœuvering for, though at present the opposing armies are nearly in the same condition with regard to base. The enemy haul their supplies from Cartersville and Etowah to Dallas, making a line of over twenty miles. Our line is nearly as long, but arranged with the master skill of our great Captain, with a view to securing the best advantages of supply and defence. We look on the arrangement as perfect and masterly as the mind of a great master of war can make it. We are certain, too, that the defence and necessary strategy will foil the plans of the enemy and ruin the foe. His legions are now dismayed at the thought that a dangerous foe is s

were in a few feet of our line, over the half of them having retained their guns, fired on our men — Such treachery astounded our veterans for a moment, but in another instant they fired on the dastard foe, and poured volley after volley into their broken and fleering ranks. The slaughter was awful. That it was must justifiable, in our opinion, will be seen in the assertion. We regret that a single one of the dastard foe escaped the retribution their treachery deserved. An avenging Nemesis hovers over the accursed enemy's track. We hope the red beaked of destruction will soon overtake them, and end our suspense by shrieking its cries over the hosts of their dead, and screaming in the track of their retreating and broken columns. We have just learned from a responsible source that about half past 8 o'clock last (Sunday) night, the enemy assaulted our lines along their whole front, but especially functions on our left and left centre, about New Hope Church.

The Sabbath passed without the anticipated engagement occurring. There has been little more than skinnishing along the line during two days past, and no results have occurred which affect materially either side. From a courtier from Gen Johnston's quarters we learn that the Yankees are entrenching south and east of Peavine and Pumpkinvine creeks. Our forces maintain their positions on the commanding eminences to the north of Altoona, and are entrenched on the crests of the hills to to and from their own entrenchments. The last was a battlefield report. We think it doubtful, because it is to our interest during a night assault to keep our line of battle infect, and let the enemy waste his strength in futile efforts. Gen Johnston has been expecting a night attack for several nights past, and was well prepared for the onset. Our men were well entrenched for advantageously meeting the assault. We cannot learn the loss on either side, but the most reasonable report
