Hospital supplies for the Northwest. Editors of the Dispatch:--I wish to acknowledge, in the "Richmond Dispatch." by request, the safe arrival of a box of hospital supplies, sent from Roswell, Georgia, and designated a "family contribution." Our usual practice has been to make such acknowledgements by letters to the donors. I wish, also, to state that we have made a most satisfactory arrangement for the distribution of the supplies that come into our hands. Adjutant Henry Hoover has engaged to go out, without compensation, and at his own expense, and act as our distributing agent. He leaves to-day for Greenbrier river and Huntersville, with a load of boxes, in a wagon furnished by the Quartermaster at this place. He will remain in the mountains, passing from point to point, receiving the supplies shipped by us to him, and distributing them with his own hand, and to the most needy. Adjutant Hoover possesses the entire confidence of this and other communities in which he
From North Georgia. Atlanta, June 13 --The position of affairs in front has been unchanged for the last two days, with occasional slight skirmishing and firing on working parties. Rumors of a raid on Atlanta via Roswell reached here Saturday, and ample preparations were made to receive them. There are no signs of their appearance at this time. The weather is very cool, and it has been raining almost incessantly for the past two days. [second Dispatch.] Atlanta, June 13th. --Advices from the front state that the recent rains have made the reads almost impassable, suspending all the movements of both armies. Neither has fired a gun for two days. The Yankee train is running to Ackworth to-day, and indications of a new flank movement on the part of the Yankees has transpired. Our lines are strong, and the troops have recovered from their recent fatigues.

From Georgia. Atlanta, July 12. --There has been no change in the position of affairs during the last few days. The enemy are in position on the north side of the river. There is some firing between sharpshooters, with occasional artillery firing by the enemy, without damage to us. A small force is reported on this side of the river, about eight miles above the railroad bridge. They keep very close to the fort. The Governor arrived here last evening, and is urging forward everything for the defence of Atlanta. His proclamation calling on every one between the ages of sixteen and forty five, to report at Atlantis, receives the approval of all classes. [Second Dispatch.] Atlanta, July 13. --The enemy are massing on our right near Roswell. A portion of the Yankee army are on the southside of the Chattahoochee. Sherman's headquarters are near Vining's Station. Skirmishing across the river continues near the bridge.--Everything is quiet below.
