, who appears to have held the right of our line in this day's fight, also withdrew during the night towards Atlanta for the purpose of forming a junction with General Hood and the main army. On the next morning, Hardee's corps having been cut off, and the enemy being firmly lodged on the Macon railroad, it was evident that Auring the day it dees not appear that any hostilities occurred further than some skirmishing on flank and rear. About one o'clock on Saturday morning, the 3d, Hood effected his junction with Hardee, and our entire army was drawn up in line of battle before Lovejoy's, not at all demoralized, and but little weakened by loss of lroad. Our total losses attendant upon the fall of Atlanta amount to only fifteen hundred men. Eight field pieces were lost by Hardee; some siege guns left by Hood in Atlanta; from five to eight locomotives; between one hundred and fifty and two hundred freight cars, and some ordnance, commissary and quartermaster stores dest

He knows that the country, by this process, must all return to the Confederates, and he, therefore, wishes to leave no population in the rear. Second. He wishes to convert the whole of Atlanta into a vast fort or arsenal, with no Confederates about it to give notice of his movements. Thirdly. He wishes to intimidate, debase and subdue by severity, making the mistake common to all vulgar and cruel natures, of measuring everybody by his own standard; for these measures will inflame instead of intimidate. That he means to send the greater part of his force to Grant, we believe to be certain, as we believe to be unfounded a report very generally prevailing that, just as he is about to do so, our authorities are on the point of depleting General Lee to reinforce General Hood. Such a policy would be so amazing that we take the liberty of believing its adoption to be impossible.
