Retaliatory measures. --A Washington telegram says: In reply to a request of the President, it is understood that each member of the Cabinet has submitted in writing his opinions in regard to retaliatory measures toward the rebels, on account of the massacres at Fort Pillow and Plymouth. The opinion of Attorney General Bates is said to be in opposition to any such a course. Whatever policy may be adopted, no formal public declaration of it will probably be made.

From Gen. Johnston's Army — the fighting commenced. A correspondent of the Augusta Constitutionalist, writing from Dalton, gives that paper some particulars of the fighting which has already taken place between Johnston and Sherman. His first letter, dated the 8th inst, says: So soon as our cavalry was withdrawn from our immediate front on yesterday Gen. Hood ordered Major Gens. Stewart and Bates to march through Buzzard Gap and occupy all of the spurs that jut out from the main ridge on the north side of the Gap. Eldridge's battalion of artillery (composed of Capt. Stanford's Mississippi Capt. Oliver's Eufaula, Ala, and Capt. Fenner's Louisiana batteries,) was conspicuously posted upon the summit of these spurs. The intention of this was no doubt a mere feint; the enemy, however, thought very differently, for they went to work last night and worked like beavers. This morning a long line of breast works is presented to our view, commencing from a high knoll immediately
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.
