day the ten days armistice will date. General Hood will send up a sufficient number of wagons for their transportation to this end of the railroad. The impression is general that Sherman determines to convert the Gate City into a military camp and garrison. Mayor Calhoun's letter to General Hood gives a saddening and pathetic narration of the condition of the people. There is very little army news of interest. The Federal General Thomas, with three army corps, is in Atlanta, while Schofield holds Decatur and another Federal commander, whose name is not remembered, holds East Point. Our advance to-day is beyond Jonesboro'. Lovejoy is still the military telegraphic station. The camp is tranquil and the troops continue in cheerful spirits. It is reported that the Federals have proposed an exchange of prisoners at this point. Federal files to the 6th instant have been received here under a flag of truce. The Chattanooga Gazette of the 6th has dispatches from General
commissary, occupies James Clarke's premises. Gentlemen from Atlanta — cool, observant and reliable, and who have "enjoyed" several days' observation and inquiry since the enemy occupied the place,--report that the force of Sherman now there consists of three distinct armies, divided into ten army corps, and embracing, altogether, a strength of one hundred and twenty thousand. They give the number and position of these armies as follows: Army of the Cumberland, commanded by General Schofield, quartered at Decatur, twenty to thirty thousand strong. Army of Mississippi, commanded by General Smith, at East Point, twenty to thirty thousand strong. Army of Tennessee, commanded by General Thomas, quartered in Atlanta, fifty to sixty thousand strong. They report that Sherman is now running eight trains daily to and from Chattanooga. Already many warehouses in the city are filled with commissary, quartermaster and ordnance stores, and the immense railroad passenger
hree thousand have gone North. Some of the citizens have determined to remain in Atlanta until forced out by the bayonet. Nearly all the young men left in Atlanta have chosen to go North or have gone to work in Yankee shops. All those who have elected to go North, who have been in the Confederate service, are to be sent there as prisoners of war. The only parties who have gained consent to remain in Atlanta, who have heretofore been residents, are two men, named Markham and Schofield, the latter a brother of the Yankee general. A large number of negroes left Atlanta with the exiles. The negroes who accompanied the Yankee army committed all manner of outrages upon their colored brethren in Atlanta. Some of the Yankee officers informed Mayor Calhoun that they would be glad if every negro went South. The Yankee soldiery are pulling down all the houses in the suburbs, using the materials for camp huts or fuel. A large number of Yankee recruiting ag

About five hundred rebels entered Union, the county seat of Franklin county, on Saturday, and captured about one hundred of the county militia.--Washington had a garrison of six hundred men, under Colonel Gale, who evacuated the place on the approach of the rebels, and took his men and stores across the Missouri river. The depot at Jacksonville, on the North Missouri railroad, was burned by guerrillas on Monday morning. General Schofield has received information that General Burbridge captured the salt works near Abingdon, Virginia, with little resistance. [He received a bloody repulse.--Dispatch.] On Saturday last a portion of Forrest's command shelled Athens, Alabama.--Guerrilla bands are operating near that city, and last week two or three commissary trains were captured. On Monday, Forrest appeared before Dalton, Georgia, and demanded its surrender. On the 4th, gold opened at 192, fell to 189 1-

was put to work on the fortifications. At last advices, General Kilpatrick, with his cavalry, was at Dalton. No apprehensions are now felt for Chattanooga or Knoxville. General Sherman has over one hundred days rations at Atlanta. Knoxville has an abundance of provisions to stand a six months siege. At Chattanooga, the Government storehouses are full of provisions, and large supplies besides are on the ground, covered with tarpaulins. General Milroy was at Tullahoma, and General Schofield at Chattanooga. A private, trustworthy source says that, on Saturday evening, Hood's army was between Dalton and Lafayette, making for the latter place, with Sherman pressing him closely. Prominent military men say Hood's last move places him exactly in the position desired by Sherman. There was considerable excitement at Clarksville, Tennessee, in consequence of reports brought in by scouts that the rebel General Lyon intended to attack the place. Government employees are a
our hundred and sixty feet in length, through a gravel hill — and will undoubtedly destroy it. This will be a severe blow to the Atlantic and Western road, for damage may be done in half a day at the tunnel which weeks will not repair. General Schofield came down from Knoxville yesterday morning and went to Dalton. There he received dispatches from General Sherman, at above Kingston, advising him not to attempt to get through to the front. General Schofield, in company with Brigadier- GGeneral Schofield, in company with Brigadier- Generals Rice and Sprague, of the Army of the Tennessee, went back to Cleveland, ordered the evacuation of that point, and came down here to assume direction of affairs. All artillery and stores were brought away from Cleveland and the place abandoned for a time. No information has been received that the enemy have occupied it. So troops from all quarters come pouring into Chattanooga in detachments, and found the sound-hearted commander of the Ohio department to direct them when they got ther
Johnsonville, opened on the disabled gunboats. They responded until their ammunition was exhausted, and were then blown up. Their boats' crews are at the fort in Johnsonville. This morning the rebels commenced crossing in the boats of the Undine at a place about five miles above Johnsonville. Two flatboats were also used. No fighting has taken place to-day. The rebels are engaged in burying their dead. Gunboats from Paducah are in sight, and reinforcements have arrived. General Schofield takes command of the post of Johnsonville. Intelligence from below Florence states that a large part of Hood's army is still south of the river, out of rations and clothing, and subsisting on the country. The river is rising, and is five feet deep on the shoals. A mob at Trenton — a M'Clellan procession run into by a railroad train. On Saturday night last, a railroad train at Trenten, Now Jersey, ran into a McClellan procession crossing the track, striking a boat carr
Lynchburg to take Lee's position in the rear at that point. It says: By no means least probable is the surmise that General Sherman designs marching eastwardly through Georgia and South Carolina. This strikes us as being best supported by all the known circumstances of the situation. It is said that when Sherman heard that Hood had crossed the Tennessee, he telegraphed this farewell address: "Hood has crossed the Tennessee. Thomas will take care of him and Nashville, while Schofield will not let him into Chattanooga or Knoxville. Georgia and South Carolina are at my mercy and I shall strike. Do not be anxious about me. I am all right." It will be observed that Georgia and South Carolina are the fields which he regarded as at his mercy, and at which he intended to strike. This route through those States is fertile, and has never been ravaged by the presence of strong armies. A portion of it lies through districts thickly populated with slaves, the blacks far e
town, near the Alabama State line, between sixty and seventy miles south from Nashville. General Stanley commands the Fourth corps and General Cox the Twenty- third corps. Both are excellent officers. The whole are under the command of General Schofield in the field, whose headquarters are at Spring Hill, a small place between Franklin and Columbia. General Schofield is greatly beloved as an officer and a man. General Thomas is still in this city, with headquarters at the St. Cloud Hotel.General Schofield is greatly beloved as an officer and a man. General Thomas is still in this city, with headquarters at the St. Cloud Hotel. I think there will something lively transpire in less than a month in this department, even if the movements of Beauregard do not necessitate some such event before. As long as the latter- named officer remains at Corinth, with his army hovering about Florence, little notice will be taken of him. The last information I gave you concerning the whereabouts of the rebel Army of Tennessee found Beauregard quietly located at the mansion of Dr. Stout, of Corinth, with Stewart's corps, co
ome wagons, spiked the siege guns and destroyed the carriages. He also captured Piedmont, destroyed all the Government buildings, containing a number of engines; burnt several bridges, did considerable damage to the railroad, and collected several hundred head of cattle. His loss was two killed and two or three wounded. "The boldness and enemy exhibited by General Rosser, and the conduct of his men, deserve much praise. R. E. Lee." Hood's advance on Nashville — victory over Schofield — the enemy driven fifteen miles. The Yankee papers furnish an account of a battle at Franklin, Tennessee, eighteen miles south of Nashville; and though they claim a victory, it is plain, from their own showing, that they have sustained a disastrous defeat. They describe their position at Franklin as perfect and their victory there as complete, and in the same breath announce the retreat of their army to Nashville.
