From North Georgia.

New Hope, May 29.
--While Jackson's dismounted cavalry engaged the enemy last evening, our left, under Gen. Bates, was ordered to feel their position. He deployed his command as skirmishers, driving in those of the enemy, and taking possession of their breastworks. He then ordered a charge, but, ascertaining the enemy's force countermanded the order. This last order did not reach Lewis's brigade, whose gallant 2d, 4th and 5th Kentucky rushed forward with great impetuosity, leaped the breast-works, when they found themselves confronted by Logan's 15th army corps. One hundred and thirty of the regiment were killed, wounded and missing. Killed: Maj. Miller, of the 4th Kentucky, and Captain Mitchell, of the 5th Kentucky. Wounded: Capt. Desha, 5th Kentucky; Capt. Henry, Lieut. Cleveland, Lieut Forshaback, and Adjutant Moss, 2d Kentucky.
