Atlanta to go up soon.

--The Rome (Ga.) Courier contains the following pleasant hit at the vanity of its Atlanta neighbors:

Gen. Johnston has fallen back on the east of Pearl river. Atlanta will be the next point of attack by Grant and his whole army. Gen Lee has recrossed the Potomac. Meade and his whole army will be on Atlanta in a few weeks. He is evidently striking for Atlanta. Gen. Bragg has fallen back to the Tennessee river. Rosecrans will be thundering on the walls of Atlanta in less than a week. He will raise the wind with his whole army in balloons, and Atlanta is the first point he will touch the earth after leaving Tennessee river near Huntsville. All these great Yankee Generals know that the sun of the Confederacy rises and sets in Atlanta. Pity but the public stores could be removed before these threes grand armies reach Atlanta, so that the internal Yankees might be compelled to perish or live on chinquapin and extortioners.
