From north Georgia.

New Hope, June. 2
--The enemy still remain on our right. There was skirmishing along our right and centre this morning, which still continues. Dallas was evacuated yesterday by the enemy, who left our wounded prisoners behind. The movement seems to have been made hastily.


[Second Dispatch.]

Atlanta, June 2.
--The movement of the Yankee army towards the Etowah river is generally accepted here as a relinquishment of the on to Atlanta movement. The Yankee loss since the commencement of the advance from Chattanooga is estimated in well informed circles at 30,000 killed and wounded, and 15,000 sick, missing, and prisoners.

Persons from behind their lines report that no trains have been at Kingston for several days; that the forage is all eaten out, and the country ravaged of every particle of food.

Gen G W Smith has been unanimously elected Major General in command of the Georgia reserve troops.

Gen Brown is engaged here in preparing the State troops for active service.

Gen Lovell has tendered his services to Gen Johnston, and has been here on important service. He has left again for the front.
