General Hood is said to have been taken quite by surprise by this unlooked-for promotion. The news was conveyed to him last night at midnight by a telegram direct from Richmond, and it was some time after he had read the dispatch before he could realize that he had been selected to take supreme command of the Army of Tennessee. General Hood will have but little time to make changes of any great importance, even should be desire to do so, for the enemy have already crossed in force upon our right, and will soon be down upon us. He crossed the main body of his army at Isham Ferry, below Roswell, leaving two corps on the other side — at least they had not followed up to this morning.

On the 15th, Governor Brown informed me, orally, that he hoped to reinforce the army before the end of the month with near ten thousand State troops. On the 17th, the main body of the Federal army crossed the Chattahoochee between Roswell and Powers' ferry. At 10 o'clock P. M., while I was giving Lieutenant-Colonel Prestman, chief engineer, instructions in regard to his work of the next day on the fortifications of Atlanta, a telegram was received from General Cooper informing me, by direction of the Secretary of War, that as I had failed to arrest the advance of the enemy to the vicinity of Atlanta, and expressed no confidence that I could defeat or repel him, I was relieved from the command of the Army and Department of T
