and the prospect is that Sheridan will have some heavy work to perform yet. From Georgia. Late advices represent that the enemy is closely massed around Atlanta, and that there is no prospect of an advance soon. In their retreat from Jonesboro', the Yankees destroyed fifteen miles of the Macon and Western railway. Our p from General Hood: "Headquarters Army of Tennessee,"September 9, 1864. "General Bragg: General Sherman has ordered the removal of all citizens from Atlanta, to go North or South, as they may elect, and proposes a truce for ten days to provide for the transportation of such as may desire to come South. I have acceptePrisoners report that thirty thousand of Sherman's troops will be mustered out of service this month, and that the term of many of them expired before the fall of Atlanta, but they were induced to remain until after that event. Wheeler's report of his operations. The following official dispatch was received yesterday:
From General Lee's Army. (From Our Own Correspondent) Army of Northern Virginia,near Petersburg, Va., September 10, 1864. Atlanta has fallen; Forts Powell, Morgan and Gaines have been surrendered into the hands of the enemy, and Jack Morgan is dead. Truly, misfortunes never come alone. But super-add to these reverses the rejoicing which rescind throughout the entire North, and bear in mind that the enemy announce large accretions to their military numbers, and you have the military situation. The month of September will likely witness no grand military effort, either on the Virginia or Georgia military chess-board. Grant and Sherman are, meanwhile, not idle. Their camps are busy in preparation; and, backed by the authorities at Washington, they are making ready to deal us hard knocks by the "early" frost Fous est abhorte deceri is a motto worthy to be remembered and acted upon.

The prisoners captured yesterday say Sherman will now reinforce Grant, take Richmond, and finish the rebellion. They also state that one-half of his army will go out of service this month. Our pickets extend six miles beyond Jonesboro' The enemy are closely massed about Atlanta.--There is not the slightest prospect of an early resumption of hostilities.

ital energies of our defence so long as the great armies of the Confederacy remain intact. It is this that should engage the serious reflection of the people of the United States. They are just now in a state of absurd elation over the fall of Atlanta; but the fall of Atlanta, they ought never to forget, did not involve the fate of General Hood's army — an army as large as that with which General Lee now confronts the enemy in Virginia. On the contrary, General Sherman is unable to advance aAtlanta, they ought never to forget, did not involve the fate of General Hood's army — an army as large as that with which General Lee now confronts the enemy in Virginia. On the contrary, General Sherman is unable to advance at present; and his success is only one of those indecisive successes which have characterized this war on both sides from the beginning. Whether it can be called a success at all is problematical, and remains to be determined by future events. There is food for reflection to the Northern people in these things. They are promised now, as they have been promised all along, a speedy termination of the war. What reason have they to put confidence in such promises! What have they accomplishe
