Macon and Western railroad, between Rough and Ready and East Point stations. They attacked our forces with six corps, and by a very fierce and obstinate effort, succeeded in gaining the position which divides our army. General Hardee's corps, under Cleburne, and Lee's corps, all combined, under charge of General Hardee resisted the advance of the enemy with determined valor and unexampled bravery from early this morning until night, when the enemy still held possession of the road. General Hood, with Stewart's corps and the Georgia militia, remains in Atlanta, and communication between the two portions is kept up only by couriers, It is supposed that the enemy will make a rapid and terrible onset on the defences of Atlanta at the earliest moment they can reach the city. The battle was very heavy along the entire line to-day, and resulted in very considerable loss to us. A large number of the wounded were arriving on the trains during the night. General Patton Anderson w
From Georgia — Wheeler's operations. Macon, September 6. --The situation at the front is not materially changed. The enemy are reported advancing, but this is not credited. An officer from Rome, Georgia, reports that the tunnel at Tunnel Hill was blown up by Wheeler several days ago. The last heard from Wheeler at General Hood's headquarters, he was between Chattanooga and Murfreesboro'.
. Our picket line now extends six miles beyond Jonesboro', with no enemy in sight except scattered parties. The following dispatch has been received from General Hood: "Headquarters Army of Tennessee,"September 9, 1864. "General Bragg: General Sherman has ordered the removal of all citizens from Atlanta, to go elect, and proposes a truce for ten days to provide for the transportation of such as may desire to come South. I have accepted, and am making arrangements. "J. B. Hood, General." Prisoners report that thirty thousand of Sherman's troops will be mustered out of service this month, and that the term of many of them expWe destroyed fifty miles of the Tennessee railroad, and also several trains and much property. In every fight, thus far, with the enemy we have been successful, capturing and damaging a large number. Our loss is about one hundred killed and wounded. No prisoners have been captured from us in action.' "J. B. Hood, General."
espective names the simple word "detailed." Again, the State of Georgia, with a readiness that does her credit, has called her reserves to the front. If the States of Virginia, North Carolina and South Carolina, will just now imitate her example, Hood and Lee can both receive in this way valuable and appreciable reinforcements. Let them be called for at once. Ere thirty days shall have elapsed Grant will receive his drafted or volunteer men. All that Grant expects them to do is to man his alrs of power are unnecessary. Execute the laws, and all will be well. --Perhaps this communication may fall without fruit. If its suggestions are heeded, the country will be benefitted; if ignored, I will not answer for results. Reinforce Lee and Hood are the suggestions of prudence and common sense, which I cannot suppose our authorities will willfully disregard. The enemy have nearly finished their branch of the City Point road to the Weldon railroad; and everything indicates a purpose —
n Grant first crossed the Rapidan. It is the truth enunciated by the Times; i. e., that the fall of this Confederate stronghold or that does not affect the vital energies of our defence so long as the great armies of the Confederacy remain intact. It is this that should engage the serious reflection of the people of the United States. They are just now in a state of absurd elation over the fall of Atlanta; but the fall of Atlanta, they ought never to forget, did not involve the fate of General Hood's army — an army as large as that with which General Lee now confronts the enemy in Virginia. On the contrary, General Sherman is unable to advance at present; and his success is only one of those indecisive successes which have characterized this war on both sides from the beginning. Whether it can be called a success at all is problematical, and remains to be determined by future events. There is food for reflection to the Northern people in these things. They are promised now,

the Yankees were apt to fight shy of it and confine their operations to the railroad. The battle of Franklin. General Hood's official report of the battle of Franklin has, at last, been received. It will be seen that our reported extraordinary loss of general officers is but too true. The following is General Hood's dispatch: "Headquarters Army of Tennessee. Six Miles from Nashville, Nashville, Dec. 8, Via. Mobile, 9th. "Hon. J. A. Seddon: "About 4 o'clock P. M., Novemberier-Generals Carter, Manignauir, Quaries Cockerell and Scott were wounded.

tronger position. Breckinridge's position seems to be in doubt. A loyal gentleman says he is at Sparta, Tennessee, with about ten thousand men. This gentleman speaks of what he knows, and the fact indicates that Breckinridge intends to reinforce Hood, and, if possible, reach the main rebel army; but the movement of a portion of our troops, under Stoneman and Burbridge, indicate that he will have some difficulty in forming a junction with Hood. Affairs around Richmond — Longstreet's reconHood. Affairs around Richmond — Longstreet's reconnaissance — Warren's return. A letter from Grant's army, dated the 10th instant alludes to the recent reconnaissance of General Longstreet, and adds: Simultaneously with this attack at the right, the enemy opened their mortar batteries n Fort Durham (Harrison). Some few casualties have occurred during the day's operations, but to what extent I am not able as yet to state. A letter from the south side announces the return of Warren from his unsuccessful expedition South. It c<
Forrest's indomitable energy. --Maney's division, formerly Cheatham's, was sent to Forrest, we are told, to replace Bate's division at Murfreesboro'. When Hood fell back from Nashville, the troops at Murfreesboro' were in great danger of being cut off; but Forrest, with that indomitable energy which is characteristic of the man, passed everything ridable within his reach, and brought off safely his own and Maney's commands, and joined Hood's army at Columbia. The majority of Maney's men wr of being cut off; but Forrest, with that indomitable energy which is characteristic of the man, passed everything ridable within his reach, and brought off safely his own and Maney's commands, and joined Hood's army at Columbia. The majority of Maney's men were riding behind Forrest's bold troopers — some rode mules and many oxen. It was said to have been a most ludicrous cavalcade as it marched through Columbia. Nobody else save Forrest could have saved the men in that expeditious style.
's men, on last Monday morning, near Edingburg, in the Valley, during which the enemy were driven back beyond Woodstock. We mentioned some time since that General Hood had been relieved of the command of the Army of Tennessee, and superseded by General Dick Taylor. General Taylor's command of the army is believed to be only temporary. In taking leave of the army, General Hood issued the following address: "Headquarters Army Tennessee, "Tupelo, Mississippi, January 23. "Soldiers: At my request, I have this day been relieved from the command of this army. "In taking leave of you, accept my thanks for the patience with which you have ensupport to the distinguished soldier who now assumes command, and I shall look with deep interest upon all your future operations and rejoice at your success. J. B. Hood, General." It was said yesterday, by persons who, from their position, should know these things, that General Breckinridge had been appointed Secretar
