shall furnish fifteen thousand troops. Governor Bramlette promises that the troops shall be furnished. The United States Minister at Rome, Gen'l King, writes that the Americans in Rome have made liberal contributions to the Metropolitan Fair for the Sanitary commission about to be held in New York, and that the Pope and cardinal Antonelli have joined in the contributions. Dispatches from Cincinnati state that General Buell is to command the Department of the Ohio, in place of Gen. Schofield, and that Major Generals Negley, McCook, Crittenden, Newton, and Sykes, together with ten Brigadiers, have been ordered to report to General Sherman. By order of Gov. Morton the entire Indiana Legion is ordered to hold itself in readiness to take the field at any moment to repel invasion. A grand review of the whole legion, numbering 20,000 men, fully armed and equipped, will be held on the 15th instant. The United States transport Fair Haven was wrecked near cape Henry Saturd
his regiment will greatly feel his loss, as will a host of friends. The fight at Resaca--four Yankee Generals wounded. A correspondent of the Cincinnati Commercial, writing from Resaca, Ga. May 17, closes up a long account of the operations around Resaca as follows: On Sunday morning firing commenced as usual, but nothing of particular importance occurred until 1 P. M. At that time a determined charge was made by Hooker's corps, which now occupied our left-Palmer, Howard, and Schofield having been shifted towards the right to fill up the gap occasioned by Hooker's withdrawal the day before.--This charge was at first believed to be successful. The enemy were driven from a portion of their second lines, and Wood's brigade, of Butterfield a division, stormed a small fort and took a battery of four guns. The rebels, however, having massed on this part of the line very heavily the day before, our men were exposed to so deadly a fire from the luner works that they were compe
l back dead into the arms of his Assistant Adjutant General. The Yankee War Department, in response to a resolution of the Senate, has given information concerning field officers since the commencement of the war, from which it appears that in the regular Army Generals Scott, Harney, Wool, Anderson, and Ripley have retired, and Sumner, Mansfield, and Totten have died, Twiggs dismissed. Of Major Generals in the volunteer corps Blair resigned, and resignation revoked. Wm F Smith's and Schofield's appointment expired by constitutional limitation, and they were reappointed.--Horallo S Wright rejected by the Senate and since appointed, and is now in command of Sedgwick's corps. The resignations are, Cassins M Clay, Jas A Garfield, Schuyler Hamilton, Charles S Hamilton, E D Keyes, E D Morgan, Benjamin M Prentiss, and Robert M Schenck. Sixteen are dead. The "strikes" in New York continue to attract more or less attention. There is an ugly feeling manifested by the recently dis
s of the rebel works. The rebels were very busy on Saturday constructing entrenchments on the west side of the Chickahominy, at Bottom's Bridge, and towards evening threw a party across to the east side. A dispatch from Gen. Sherman, dated yesterday afternoon, June 5th, at 3:20 at Altoona Creek, states that the enemy discovered us moving around his right flank, abandoned his position, and marched off. McPherson is moving to-day for Ackworth. Thomas is on the direct Marietta road and Schofield on his right. It has been raining hard for three days, and the roads are heavy. An examination of the enemy's abandoned works here shows an immense line, which I have turned with less loss to ourselves than we have inflicted upon him. The army supplies of forage and provisions are ample. Edwin M Stanton, Secretary of War. [another Dispatch]"everything going on well" with Grant — Sherman Progressing. Washington, June 6, 1864.

s is astonishingly small. Four hundred men will more than cover our total loss in the whole army throughout the day. Prisoners. We captured about one hundred prisoners, and could have captured many more, but the order being given for our men not to leave their works, the enemy was not pursued, and consequently many got away who could have been easily taken. [by telegraph.] Marietta, June 27. --About ten o'clock this morning the enemy, consisting of parts of Palmer's, Schofield's, Blair's, Howard's, and Logan's corps, attempted to gain possession of the angle fortifications on our left centre, held by Cheatham and Cleburne. They marched defiantly up in seven lines of battle. Our troops received their fire until they approached within a few yards of our breastworks, when we opened with grape, canister, and musketry, creating great havoc in their ranks. The fire was so rapid and destructive that the enemy could not rally, and was driven back with a loss of betwe

eceipt of Atlanta papers of the 13th and 14th, whose news has mainly been anticipated by the telegraph. The Register has the following relative to the situation: All quiet at the front. Sherman is evidently bent upon rebuilding the railroad bridge across the Chattahoochee before he makes a forward movement. The portion of Howard's 4th army corps which was on this side of the river have recrossed, having been relieved by two divisions of Dodge's 16th army corps. One division of Schofield's 23d army corps are also on this side opposite Soap Ford. Girard's division of cavalry are camped on this side about a mile from the river, on the Buckhead road, having thrown up a few rails, &c., as breastworks. They are said to be amusing themselves picking blackberries and frolicking around generally, but keeping a sharp lookout for our cavalry. The enemy have sent a brigade of cavalry and a battery of artillery to the right, opposite Campbellton, evidently as a feint upon N
s already briefly noticed: The recent battle near Atlanta. The Northern papers contain some characteristic accounts of the late movements of Sherman near Atlanta and the defeat of McPherson's corps there. The correspondent of the Cincinnati Gazette, who actually dates his letter at Atlanta, on the 22d, gives the following account of the movements since crossing the Chattahoochee: On the morning of the 18th the whole line advanced, McPherson taking position on the extreme left, Schofield having the left centre, Howard the centre, Hooker the right centre, and Palmer the extreme right. On the morning of the 19th our advance reached Peach Tree Creek, a stream running four miles north of Atlanta, and after considerable skirmishing the enemy was dislodged, and a portion of Howard's corps crossed our left wing in the meantime, swinging around to the Atlanta and Augusta Railroad, near Decatur, and tearing up several miles of track. On the evening of the 19th and morning of
an and were shot down in the act, or surrendered. Surprised by the suddenness of the onset, they were put partially prepared with heavy breastworks to meet it — although breastworks were in course of construction — yet with that bravery which characterizes the Western troops, they manfully stood their ground until forced to succumb to the energy and enthusiasm of our attack. The Yankees engaged on this portion of the line were the corps of Dodge, Blair and Logan, with reinforcements from Schofield, who held a position along our centre. The whole were under command of General McPherson. There being three divisions to a corps, the disparity of numbers between the antagonists may be readily observed. It was doubtless "dash" which gave us the victory, for had the Federal been apprised of our approach in time they would have so fortified their left as to have utterly defeated the bold movement of the day. By this hour the entire position of the enemy is, beyond peradventure, impregnab
of his wounds. General Lightburn, of Logan's corps, was wounded in the same way three or four days ago. The peace rumors. A semi-official telegram from Washington says; There are no grounds for the rumor, so assiduously reported, that the President proposes to send peace commissioners to the rebels. The rumors that an armistice had been, or is to be proposed, are equally without foundation. Miscellaneous. It is reported that the Twenty-third army corps, commanded by General Schofield, left the Atlanta front on the 16th instant with fifteen days rations. The object of the movement was to capture Macon. Lively times, it is said, are predicted in that quarter soon. On the 20th instant, General Wheeler attacked and captured, and, it is said, murdered, the negro garrison and three hundred white laborers at Stewart's Landing. He also destroyed a camp and fifty wagons. A movement has been set on foot by prominent radical abolitionists to induce Lincoln and F
icial report of the capture of Atlanta has just been received by this department. It is dated twenty-six miles south of Atlanta, six o'clock yesterday morning, but was detained by the breaking of the telegraph lines, mentioned in my dispatch of last night. "As already reported, the army withdrew from about Atlanta; and, on the 30th, had made a break of the West Point road, and reached a good position from which to strike the Macon road — the right (Howard) near Jonesboro', the left (Schofield) near Rough and Ready, and the centre (Thomas) at Couch's. "Howard found the enemy in force at Jonesboro', and entrenched his troops — the sullent within half a mile of the railroad. "The enemy attacked him at 3 P. M., but was easily repulsed, leaving his dead and wounded. "Finding strong opposition on the road, I advanced the left and centre rapidly to the railroad, made a good lodgment, and broke it all the way from Rough and Ready down to Howard's left, near Jonesboro', a
