From North Georgia.

Atlanta, May 23.
--The press reporter left the front at noon to-day. There has been very little skirmishing for the last two days, mostly on the left of the main body.--The enemy seem to have abandoned the line of railroad, and they are attempting to mass on our left to support the flanking column under McPherson, who is moving on Dalton. These developments of the enemy's plan render necessary a further change of position on our part. These have been made, so that Johnston remains master of the situation. There is no straggling, and the troops are in fine spirits and confident.

The Mayor his issued a proclamation for all citizens not in any organization to report for orders, and devising non combatants to leave the city.
