The army of Tennessee.

General Joseph E. Johnston has been relieved of the command of the Army of Tennessee, now operating in Northern Georgia, and General John B. Hodd appointed as his successor. While we do not deem it prudent to enter into details of the circumstances which led to this change, we may without hesitation state that the President disapproved of Gen. Johnston's hesitation to fight, and surrendering so much territory to the enemy by falling back. In General Hood we have a worthy successor who will, we doubt not, show a bold and determined front to the in He is emphatically a fighting man, and we confidently anticipate the best results from his appointment to the command.
