ially interfere with military operations in front for a day or two. We hear of firing in the direction of Marietta this morning, and no additional reports have reached us from the field. From the "situation" article of the Chattanooga Gazette, of the 29th ult, which lies before us, we learn that rumors are in circulation in Chattanooga to the effect that Sherman has already entered Atlanta. The Gazette says: "There is no official verification of the truth of this rumor, and we are induced to believe that the announcement is premature. "There can be no impropriety, however, in stating that as many as two days ago General Sherman's headquarters were at Dallas, the other side of the Altoona Mountains. "These mountains were most successfully flanked, and if our readers will but glance at the map they will see our close proximity to Atlanta. We imagine that, as in the past, the Western Army will eclipse the Army of the Potomac by the brilliancy of its movements."
about ten miles from Marietta, to the left of the railroad, and derives the appellation from its being a lofty ridge "solitary and alone" in the middle of a level. Our left now rests near this mountain, and our line of battle stretches out in an oblique direction across the railroad and about three miles from Big Shanty. This movement was made necessary by the Yankees turning the right of our cavalry on Friday night, and massing large bodies of troops on their left. The evacuation of Dallas by the enemy was of no more significance than the change of position alluded to above. It was simply a movement from their right to their right to their left, and did not presage a relinquishment of the "On to Atlanta" movement of the Yankees, as was stated by the reports of the Press Association. The latest reports from the Yankees are that Blair and A. J. Smith, Yankee corps commanders, have arrived at Memphis with parts of their commands, and as soon as the remainder arrives will march
er 6. Honorable E. M. Stanton, &c. The following dispatch is just received from Chattanooga: General Smith, who left here yesterday, 5th instant, telegraphs that the enemy retreated last evening from Altoona, moving in the direction of Dallas, leaving his dead and from four to five hundred wounded in our hands. Our loss is about one hundred killed and two hundred wounded. The railroad bridge near Ringgold was washed away yesterday. S. B. Moore, Assistant Adjutant General. * * * Nothing further has been heard from General Sherman since my dispatch of yesterday; but the retreat of the enemy towards Dallas indicates that he was close upon their rear near Altoona. I have not heard of Rousseau of Washburne to-day, but presume that they are pushing Forrest as rapidly as the condition of the roads will admit. * * * * * * I have just received the following dispatch from General Granger, dated Huntsville, 10 P. M., October 6: The courier reported dro
cipated this attack, and had ordered from Rome, General Corse with reinforcements. The attack was met and repulsed, the enemy losing some two hundred dead and more than one thousand wounded and prisoners. Our loss was about seven hundred in the aggregate.--The enemy captured the small garrisons at Big Shanty and Ackworth and burned about seven miles of our railroad; but we have at Altoona and Atlanta an abundance of provisions. Hood, observing our approach, has moved rapidly back to Dallas and Van Wirt, and I am watching him in case he tries to reach Kingston or Rome. Atlanta is perfectly secure to us, and this army is better off than in camp. W. T. Sherman, Major-General. The advance of General Price into Missouri. On Friday, the 8th instant, General Price had advanced to within ten miles of Jefferson City. The Herald says: On Saturday morning the rebels drew up in line of battle in front of the Union works, but the shelling of our batteries was too sever
he meantime, the enemy was reported by Jackson's troops moving down the Etowah, as if to cross it near Stileboro', and crossing on the 23d. On the 24th, Polk's and Hardee's corps reached the road from Stilesboro' to Atlanta, a few miles south of Dallas; and Hood's, four miles from New Hope church, on the road from Alatoona. On the 25th, the enemy was found to be intrenched near, and cast of, Dallas. Hood's corps was placed with its centre at New Hope church, and Polk's and Hardee's ordered beDallas. Hood's corps was placed with its centre at New Hope church, and Polk's and Hardee's ordered between it and the Atlanta road, which Hardee's left was to cover. An hour before sunset, Stewart's division, at New Hope church, was fiercely attacked by Hooker's corps, which it repulsed after a hot engagement of two hours. Skirmishing was kept up on the 26th and 27th. At half-past 5 P. M., on the 27th, Howard's corps assailed Cleburne's division, and was driven back about dark with great slaughter. In these two actions our troops were not intrenched. Our loss in each was about four hundred
