im to the Department, of the South, from which he had just before been sent away by General Hunter for ly conduct and language. It is reported that the advance on Olustee was made contrary to Gen. Gillmore's orders, and that had be at Jacksonville or Baldwin the battle would not have taken place. But he ought to have been taught by a former experience nor to trust General Seymour with and important command. It was this officer who planned and urged the assault on Fort Wayner on the 18th of last July, in which Gen. Strong, Colonel Shaw, and so many other gallant were sent to useless deaths. He appears to be a constitution at blunderer; shown a fatal aptitude for walking into traps, and for failing in with the enemy's plans, which ought to excuse from for the service in the field, at least in any responsible position.

And besides the principal attacks in force there were few days from the first attack (July 10th) to its evacuation (September 7th ) that some Iron-clads or gunboats were not engaged in firing at the enemy's works, so as to facilitate the labor of our troops ashore, as will be perceived by the following sample from the record: Date --1863ObjectVess's engaged.

Still Later from the North. Petersburg, July 18 --Northern papers, of the 15th and 16th have been received.--Dispatches from Nashville say that since Johnston's retreat from Kennesaw Mountain Sherman has picked up three thousand prisoners. The Chronicle, of the 16th, says editorially that it is now safe to say there were periods between Saturday and Monday morning when the rebels might have dashed into Washington and effected its capture, if not its occupation. The Chronicle also says that the rebels are so flattered because they have put Washington and Baltimore in terror that they will not hesitate to repeat the experiment. The Chronicle says, editorially, that Sherman has crossed the Chattahoochee, and that Johnston is inside of the fortifications at Atlanta, and that it is not probable that Johnston, who failed to arrest Gen. Sherman in fortified mountain strongholds, will be able to detain him long before a down in an open country accessible to approaches
From Georgia — Gen Johnston's farewell address, etc. Atlanta, July 18. --The army and public were surprised this morning by the announcement of the change of commanders--Gen. Johnston being relieved, and General Hood receiving the command. The following is Gen. Johnston's farewell address to the troops: Headquarters Army of Tennessee, July 17, 1864.--In obedience to the orders of the War Department, I turn over to Gen Hood the command of the Army and Department of Tennessee. I cannot leave this noble army without expressing my admiration of the high military qualities it has displayed so conspicuously — every soldierly virtue, endurance of toil, obedience to orders, brilliant courage. The enemy has never attacked but to be severely repulsed and punished. You, soldiers, have never argued but from your courage, and never counted your fears. No longer your leader, I will still watch your career, and will rejoice in your victorian.--To one and all I offer a
to correct their mistake by saying, that as grace can only show itself by works, so the draft will surely come if we do not volunteer and, so prevent it. I hope that point is settle now. It appears that the draft in New York city will now take place, Seward notwithstanding. Says the Herald: "A draft has been ordered to take place on Monday, September 19, in Ohio and other States whose quota has not been filled up. It is also ordered to be proceeded with, this morning in the Twelfth and Thirteenth districts of this State in accordance with the President's proclamation of July 18." The Herald says that it is reported at St. Louis that about fifteen thousand rebels are concentrating at the mouth of the Red river apparently for some hostile purpose yet undisclosed. William McDonald, a man of great wealth, and the owner of the celebrated trotting nag, Flora Temple, died at his residence, near Baltimore, on the night of the 6th, in the thirty-fifth year of his age.
the opposing masses were in the open field and the hostile ranks were mixed, and the fighting hand- to-hand, before the rebels were routed.--If the Gazette's historian does not believe this, let him go to General Hooker and inquire whether his men were entrenched on the 20th of July last!--"All rebeldom now" (after the battle of the 20th), the Gazette says, "took the alarm and lost confidence in Johnston." The farewell address of General Johnston was dated on the 17th and issued on the 18th of July. The battle of the 20th was Hood's first "killing." Besides, rebeldom never lost faith in General Joseph Johnston. Not to know that Johnston was removed before the battles near Atlanta were fought, is to be in a state of utter ignorance of the whole matter. The Gazette's Friday, the 23d, was the 22d, and the portions of the city that were consumed, while the battles of the 20th and 22d raged, were probably the buildings over which the Gazette correspondent saw the flag of the Union
the enemy, laboring and fighting daily, enduring toil, exposure and danger with equal cheerfulness, more confident and high-spirited than when the Federal army presented itself near Dalton, were then inferior to none who ever served the Confederacy. Under the excellent administration of Brigadier-General Mackall, chief of staff, the troops were well equipped and abundantly supplied. The draught animals of the artillery and quartermaster's department were in better condition on the 18th of July than on the 5th of May. We lost no material in the retreat, except the four field pieces mentioned in the accompanying report of General Hood. I commenced the campaign with General Bragg's army, of Missionary ridge, with one brigade added (Mercer's) and two taken away (Baldwin's and Quarles's). That opposed to us was Grant's army of Missionary ridge, then estimated at eighty thousand by our principal officers, increased, as I have stated, by two corps, a division and several thousan

The Yankee Secretary of War, Friday, sent to Congress his annual report, which he says has been delayed in order that Lieutenant-General Grant might furnish a summary of his military operations, but the summary has not been received, as the activity of the campaign in progress demands his unceasing attention. The results of the volunteer recruiting service under the different calls for troops, dated February 1st, March 14th and July 18th, are given in the report of Provost- Marshal-General Fry, who says, in reference to the reenlistment of veteran volunteers during the autumn of 1863, that over one hundred and thirty-six thousand soldiers, who would otherwise, ere this, have been discharged, were secured for three years longer. Organizations which would otherwise have been lost to the service were preserved, and recruits and capable and experienced officers were retained in command. This fore has performed an essential p
