ion, and sends Burling's two regiments, with that of De Trobriand, which we have seen opportunely arrive in this new position. Sykes, on his part, pushes forward Tilton's and Sweitzer's brigades of Barnes' division, which he had halted in the rear of De Trobriand. Sweitzer takes position on the right of the latter in the wood whese very positions. His attack is at first directed against Sweitzer, but the latter, being posted on favorable ground, offers resistance. He then turns against Tilton's brigade, which is much more exposed. It has no support, its right is unprotected, and it falls back. Its retreat is followed by that of Sweitzer, despite the upport. It is against this wing that Wofford, after the capture of the orchard, descends with all the intrepidity that recent success has given to his soldiers. Tilton's brigade, not yet recovered from the combat in which it has been engaged, succumbs under their effort. Kershaw immediately takes advantage of it in order to res

had orders to do, to cannonading the enemy's position and engaging with their skirmishers. On the extreme right Harrison has established himself in Snake Creek Gap, which he has found occupied, but Johnston cannot allow the enemy to be master of this passage. Fortunately, he was informed in the evening, at the same time that he heard of the occupation of the defile, of the soon-expected arrival of Cleburne's division. He causes a brigade of this division, under Granberry, to disembark at Tilton, and forwards it upon Snake Creek Gap. On the 26th, at daybreak, he easily dislodges Harrison and drives him out of the gap. The appearance on his right flank of Cleburne's soldiers, whom he thought at Demopolis, finally convinced Palmer of the uselessness of any further effort against Johnston. He could not contemplate taking Dalton by main force, and his demonstration had no further object, since the troops which might have been forwarded against Sherman had just disclosed their prese

im 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 all armed for additional defence of Clarksville. The Cincinnati Commercial has a special dispatch from Nashville, which says: Communication is again open with Sherman. He was at Tilton, nine miles from Dalton, on Saturday at noon. Hood left Dalton on Saturday afternoon, moving in the direction of Bridgeport. Sherman has commenced moving in the same direction, and is close on Hood's rear. No battle had been fought at last advices. Hood has nearly his whole army with him. The following telegram, signed by "William Warner, of General Sherman's staff," is dated at Chattanooga on the 17th: General Sherman and the army are all right, and masters of
inutes to surrender, and if not complied with I will put the garrison to the sword." The colonel observed that the terms were hard, but that he would surrender, which was at once done. The prisoners captured were as follows: eight hundred negroes in full Yankee uniform, two hundred and fifty white soldiers, one battery of six guns, (field artillery,) and eighty cavalry, together with several guns, (mounted in the forts,) a large quantity of stores, ammunition, saddles and blankets. At Tilton we captured three hundred and fifty men without firing a gun. After Dalton was captured a portion of our army was sent to make a demonstration upon Resaca, which is strongly garrisoned, and the remainder sent towards Chattanooga, which is garrisoned by six thousand negroes and white men — chiefly negroes. I hardly think, however, that any attack will be made upon that place, as it can be easily turned by the army crossing the river — well, you will find out before a great while. W
upon the shoals of the North Carolina coast — the harbor is bar-locked and land- locked, and none but the best pilots can get in at all. As to lying off the mouth of Wilmington harbor for any length of time, it is simply impossible; no vessel can live there ten days without going to pieces. From Georgia. The enemy seem to be considerably exercised about the movements of Hood. He has, as anticipated, possession of Tunnel Hill and Dalton, and has been tearing up the railroad towards Tilton. He has been for the last week "just where Sherman wanted him," and we presume he is there now. If he should blow up the tunnel, which is nearly three quarters of a mile long, and through a gravel hill, it would interfere seriously with the operations of the Western and Atlantic railroad, by which Sherman hopes to get his supplies — when he does get them. From the Valley. Passengers by last night's Central train brought no news of importance. Sheridan is believed to be moving in t
heatre of war has been transferred to Whitfield, Walker and Dade counties, the northern border of the State. It has at length been definitely settled that a large force of rebel infantry is operating in those counties. Hitherto it has been thought that cavalry only were so far from home. Rome, Georgia, was abandoned, and is now used as a rebel base of supplies, which are brought there on the Coosa river. Resaca has been attacked by a party traveling northward; the road torn up again near Tilton; Dalton captured; Ringgold, Tunnel Hill and Cleveland evacuated, and a concentration of Union forces has taken place here. Colonel Johnson, of the Forty-fourth United States colored troops, who garrisoned Dalton, surrendered to a vastly superior force night before last, seeing that resistance was hopeless. All but seventy-five or eighty of his command were taken by the enemy. No great amount of supplies fill into the enemy's hands; but his possession of the post, the railroad, and so
