meet at Atlanta — the Chattanooga, Augusta, West Point and Macon railways. General Hood relies on the Macon road. General Sherman is dependent on a single line. T farther south. It will be observed, Sherman's army is on the left flank of General Hood, facing east. His line stretches from Atlanta to (and probably beyond) Eastwithdrawn his army from the east and north of Atlanta and thrown it southwest of Hood's. Nay, he has abandoned the line of the Chattanooga road from Atlanta to the Chtainty that renders an error almost impossible; and the time is at hand when General Hood will be called upon to demonstrate all the soldierly qualities of a great coed by some, and it may be the case. There is, therefore, a probability that General Hood may need more men. At all events, the contingency should be provided for at to them forever. They are needed now, and urgently. It will not do for General Hood to uncover Atlanta by withdrawing all his forces from the long line around t
as an empty triumph, which it was not worth the cost of life to obtain. He cared not about taking it unless he could take Hood and his whole army along with it. That he was expecting and preparing to do, to that end all his movements were directed, uth of the city, and, holding all the passages of the Chattanooga to the north of it, in that way compel a surrender. General Hood, to prevent such a catastrophe, and to prolong the tenure of Atlanta, which he saw it would soon be necessary to abandattack in flank and rear, was compelled to retreat after having inflicted on the enemy much more damage than he received. Hood made a corresponding movement, and the whole army is safe at Lovejoy's station. We do not regard these operations as by any means decisive of any question whatever. Hood's army still exists, and its spirit is still unbroken.--Every step that Sherman takes in advance increases the difficulty of retreat in case of disaster, and that disaster will eventually come is

"Headquarters, &CL, September 3. "On the evening of the 30th August the enemy made a lodgment across Flint river, near Jonesboro'. We attaemy, and being outflanked, was compelled to withdraw during the night, with the loss of eight guns. "The enemy's prisoners report their loss very severe. J. B. Hood, General" Jonesboro', the point mentioned by General Hood, is on the Macon and Western railroad, twenty- two miles south of Atlanta, and eighty-one mGeneral Hood, is on the Macon and Western railroad, twenty- two miles south of Atlanta, and eighty-one miles from Macon. The enemy having previously occupied the West Point railroad, had, by his lodgment at Jonesboro', cut our communications, and rendered the abandonment of Atlanta necessary. This, we learn from unofficial sources, was accomplished without loss, and our army is now probably at Lovejoy's also on the Macon road, sev
Atlanta, the 24th ultimo, we make up the following account of the position of affairs around there before Sherman's change of position, officially announced by General Hood: The great effort of the Federal commander, during the last four weeks, has been to so extend his main lines as to cornpel an evacuation of the position hent. Consequently, he must be waiting either for reinforcements, or else is depending upon the success of his raiding brigands upon the rear communications of General Hood. Can he get reinforcements?--Will Grant allow them to be sent to Georgia so long as they may be needed to prevent his failure in Virginia! It is not probable Augusta than they have yet penetrated the country. This giving out is, however, regarded as a subterfuge.--They know that this road is as effectually lost to General Hood now as if every rail was torn up, and their efforts will be directed elsewhere. They may strike for the Macon road, but the general impression is that they wi
