From North Georgia.

Battle Field, 8 Miles West of Marietta, June 6.
--The enemy are still moving towards Altoona. Hooker's corps are fortifying the hills between Acworth and Atlanta.

Heavy rains for the past two days here have made the roads almost impassable for artillery, and retarded movements considerably.

Some slight skirmishing occurred near Lost Mountain yesterday. All quiet this morning.


[Second Dispatch.]

Atlanta, June 6.
--Press reporters who left the front at noon report that our army is still moving towards the railroad, the right of the enemy having already crossed near Ackworth, and Hooker's corps is reported 5 miles east of it on the Altoona road.

Gen. Johnston's headquarters are west of Marietta, with our left resting at Lost Mountain. Hardee is commanding the right, with Polk the left, and Hood the centre.

The Yankee cavalry dashed into Big Shanty at 10 o'clock this morning, and were met by Williams's brigade who were fighting them when the reporters left.
