Upon arriving at the depot here she was suddenly taken with a hemorrhage, and by advice of a physician, Dr. Gibwing that she had recently visited Richmond, was well acquainted with the position of the two armies, Grant's designs, &c. Upon arriving at the depot here she was suddenly taken with a hemorrhage, and by advice of a physician, Dr. Gibson, was paroled to remain at the Ballard House till such time as her health will admit of an examination into the facts of the case.

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 engine and five cars are a total wreck. The track will be clear before morning.
