A letter to the Philadelphia Inquirer from Grants army says: Notwithstanding the rebel raid into Maryland, and the distrust in the state of affairs, as shown by commercial men in the high price of gold, there is reason to believe that favorable military news will soon be made known to the public. By the measures that we have taken to guard Pennsylvania it is believed that the rebels will not be in sufficient force to do any material damage. Very good news is is expected from Gen Sherman — nothing less, in fact, than the capture of Atlanta. Military men here say that with the loss of Kennesaw Mountain, the rebels cannot reasonably hope to hold Atlanta, as there are no positions beyond the Chattahoochee at all equal to those on this side of it. Good news is also shortly expected from Gen Grant's army. It is believed that Petersburg will shortly be in our hands.

The Federals are still at a considerable distance from our suburbs. With a far better strategist than Sherman, they have at one time approached within four miles of Richmond, and yet the streets of the Confederate capital are unpowaists it in any engagement which is not deceive, and in which victory is not at least within the range of probability.

Sherman's headquarters are near Vining's Station. Skirmishing across the river continues near the bridge.--Everything is quiet below.
