Murder. --On last Sunday night Mr. Thomas was murdered by a negro man, whose name or owner is not known Mr. Thomas was a good citizen, and was engaged as overseer on Mrs. Oliver Elston's plantation. After supper he and two other gentlemen went into one of the negro houses on the place and found a negro follow, a stranger to the negroes as well as themselves. Mr. Thomas arrested him and after ineffectual efforts to learn who was his owner, attempted to tie him, when the negro stabbed him in the left breast with a large knife, which he had previously conceited about his person. Mr. Thomas died instantly. The murderer made his escape, and is still out.--Talladega (Ga.) Democratic Watchtower, 29th ult.

uirements. I look with confidence to your patriotism to stand by me, and rely upon your prowess to wrest your country from the grasp of the invader, entitling yourselves to the proud distinction of being called the deliverers of an oppressed people. (Signed,) J. B. Hood, General. Telegraphic communication with Montgomery was suspended last night, near Netasulga. The interruption is supposed to have been caused by a portion of that part of the enemy who were reported to be at Talladega on Saturday. No train has arrived to day from West Point. The main force of the enemy crossed the Chattahoochee between Isham's Ford and Rosswell, and are slowly pushing forward. Cavalry skirmishing took place this morning at Buck Head, six miles from this place. Griffin, Ga, July 19.--Four miles below Jonesboro' the engine Sunshine blew up. The engineer, Joe Haskey, Dr. Dennis, Dr. Harris, and a negro wood passer, were killed, and also Tanner, of the 35th Tenn, a train guard. The
give us some intelligence of military affairs in that State. No movements seem to have been made recently. We take some items from them: It has been rumored that General French's division was cut off from the main body of the army above Acworth, on Friday, and forced to cut its way out, with a loss of six hundred. That the division was engaged with the enemy we are assured, but are inclined to doubt the truth of the statement which has passed current. General Beauregard was at Talladega on Saturday, en route for General Hood's headquarters, accompanied by Governor Harris, of Tennessee. A party just out from Atlanta — at least he left that city on the 28th ultimo--reports that the impression seemed to prevail in military circles that Hood's flank movement consisted of only a portion of our main army, and that the larger portion was still between Atlanta and Macon, under Beauregard. This may account for their apparent apathy concerning Hood's movement; thinking, perh
ted above was at once made. Providing for this contingency was a wise precaution, as it rendered our army doubly secure. The Governmental telegraph officer, Army of the Tennessee post-office, and other fixtures, at the old cave on the railroad at Newman, came down yesterday, and are en route for Blue mountain, Selma. It is supposed General Beauregard is now with the army. He arrived at Newman in the evening, and only remained long enough to take supper, when he started overland to Talladega. From the demonstrations made on his route, and what I know of the spirit or the army, I judge his appearance at the front will be universally hailed with delight. The Macon Intelligencer hazards the prediction that Atlanta will soon be occupied by our forces. It adds: The troops that are rendezvousing in large numbers at stated points in this State are full of enthusiasm and spirit, and in a few days will be on the march for duty, where they will be of great service to the ar
ven from Crook, eleven from Emory, six from Wright. From all that I can learn, I think that Early's reinforcements could not be less than twelve thousand men. P. H. Sheridan, Major-General Commanding. The latest from Sherman — the "pursuit"of Hood still kept up. A telegram from Chattanooga, dated the 21st, after stating that "it is believed that both armies are in North Georgia," says: Hood is reported to be rapidly moving down Brownstown Valley to Jacksonville and Talladega, where he strikes the railroad to Montgomery. Sherman's army, stripped of every pound of superfluous baggage, is in hot pursuit of the enemy, who has so much start and flies so fearfully that his capture is not assured. A train came up to Tilton from Atlanta to-day. A small party of rebel cavalry attempted to tear up the track below Acworth yesterday, but were driven off by the train guard. Otherwise all is quiet along the Atlanta road. The war in the Southwest--from
