f precious time. In these daily skirmishes, during such demonstrations, a good many wounds are received on both sides.--However, they are being regarded only as skirmishes, and absolutely insignificant considering the magnitude of the two armies. The lines are with in a hundred and fifty and two hundred yards of each other; close enough truly to precipitate a general engagement, yet seems reluctant to make the grunge. On our side there are various reasons, needless to mention, why Gen Johnston should not bring on the attack, unless with all the advantage. But the Yankees cannot wait so well upon Sherman. --It is time he was accomplishing at least a little of the something he set out to accomplish. to lay siege to Marolla for two or three weeks is not assisting to any alarming extent the political fortunes of Lincoln and Andrew Johnson. Sherman came to take Atlanta and we are willing that he shall have a fair trial, only if he will come out of the ravines and take the whippin
From North Georgia. Marietta, June 21. --The enemy's right attacked our left yesterday, under General Harder, and were repulsed with great slaughter. We captured sixty prisoners. Among them Lieut Col. Watson, of the 40th Ohio.--Three deserters, who desired to be employed in any capacity, also came in. Gen Johnston, as well as the whole army, is anxious for an engagement.
Geteman a strength --A correspondent of the Columbus Sun, writing from Gen Johnston's army under date of 22d states that late advices from within the lines of the enemy, state that he looks 130,000 men. Dedue from this numbers sufferent to garrison his depots and guard his communications, and the killed, wounded, and prisoners in the late fights, with the sics, and it leaves him about 90,000 effectives.
egraphic error. Outrages in Essex county. The recent visit of Yankee troops to Essex county proved quite disastrous to the inhabitants. From Tappahannock and Layton's 1,325 negroes were taken, and, in fact, the country has been entirely stripped of its laboring population. Among the principal sufferers were Dr. Lawrence Roane, James Roy Micon, Mace Clements, and Mrs. Austin Brockenbrough. Besides negroes, the Yankees took everything they could find in the way of private property — provisions, jewelry and money — and spared nothing which they could conveniently carry away. The force was composed of a mixture of blacks and whites. Further from Georgia. Private information received through the Signal Corps, from a general officer in Atlanta, dated June 27th, represents Hardee's corps as having been principally engaged on our side in the attack on our lines, referred to in Gen Johnston's dispatch, and that the repulse was attended with great slaughter of the enemy
New music. --We have received from Messrs. West & Johnston, publishers, a copy of the new song--"Wait till the War, Love, is Over"--words by A. J. Andrews, music by C. W. Burton; arranged for the piano forte. As a musical composition it is creditable, and it will no doubt become quite popular.
The Daily Dispatch: July 4, 1864., [Electronic resource], From Georgia — the battle of Kennesaw Mountain. (search)
From Georgia — the battle of Kennesaw Mountain. We are indebted to Mr W C Barnes, of the Southern Express Company, for files of Atlanta papers to the 26th of June. The victory reported by Gen Johnston occurred on the 27th, and of course no account of that is given in these journals; but they contain the details of the battle of Kennesaw Mountain, on the 22d, which will be read with interest. A correspondent of the Atlanta Intelligencer, writing from the front June 23d, thus describes the engagement: On yesterday morning the enemy held possession of a ridge on the Powder Spring road, which commanded the country around for some distance, and which was deemed desirable for our army. Our cavalry held possession of it previously, but on the approach of the Yankees fell back and abandoned the important position. Accordingly, Major Gen Stevenson was ordered in the evening to attack and carry the ridge by storm. It was not supposed that the enemy had fortified himself in so sho
or Gen Dix was arrested on the 1st instant and taken before judge Roosevelt, upon the charge of unconstitutionally suppressing the World and Journal of Commerce newspapers — He was afterwards released and the matter postponed to a future day. The Federal Gen Parker is dead and Hooker reported wounded, both in Sherman's army. The distinguished irishman, Smith O'Brien, is dead. We learn from the Chronicle that Gen Ewell is at Marietta, Ga., with his corps, en route to relieve Gen Johnston. In the Yankee Senate the joint resolution repealing the act prohibiting the sale of gold and foreign exchange was passed on the 1st instant, by a vote of ayes 24, nays 14 The House agreed to this action the same day, by ayes 88, nays 29. Congress cannot, however, agree upon any policy for filling up and strengthening their armies It appears that England has complained officially through its Minister at Washington, Lord Lyons of Federal enlistments in Great Britain and Ireland.
Deserter's sale --A correspondent of the Columbus, Enquirer in Johnston's army, says that a squad of nineteen deserters were picked up by our cavalry on the 21st They say that their time expired fifteen days ago, but Sherman had pressed them all into service for ninety days. A sergeant among them said the time of 15,000 had expired, but like them, they were pressed in for ninety days.
It is thought that Major Gen Dich Taylor, who has been relieved in the Trass Mississippi department at his own request, will be made a Lieutenant General and assigned to the command of Polk's corps — A Memphis Appeal. On the contrary, the army correspondent of the Atlanta Register asserts that Major Gen A F Stewart, of Tennessee, has been promoted to the vacant Lieutenant Generalship in General Johnston's army.
as up that to time uninjured. There is no doubt, however, that Mosby has been operating upon that line of communication. From Georgia. We were aware on Wednesday night that the authorities here were in possession of information that Gen. Johnston had fallen back from his position on Kennesaw Mountain, but we deemed it the part of prudence to suppress it. The news is announced this morning by telegraph, and there can now be no harm in alluding to it. An official dispatch received yestepatch received yesterday states that our army is about a mile this side of Chattahoochee river. That river presents a strong line of defence, which will probably be held by Gen Johnston. No doubt the wily Sherman was perfectly confident of success in his flank movement, but, as usual, was outwitted by a more able commander. Demonstration against Mobile. It is reported that the Yankees are threatening Mobile, but as yet the information concerning the movement is vague and uncertain.
