skirmished with Kilpatrick's advance, but was unable to hold the enemy in cheek. The raiders burned the depot and post-office at Jonesboro', destroying all the papers. Saturday evening the enemy were surrounded, between Love joy's and Jonesboro', by Reynold's infantry brigade and Armstrong's and Ross's cavalry, and a sharp engagement ensued. Kilpatrick, charging at the head of a column of raiders, was completely routed. He then charged on Ross's brigade and cut his way out. Our loss is ten killed. The enemy's loss is twenty-five. The raiders were then pursued by two Georgia regiments of cavalry. They retreated through McDonough and escaped. Only one mile of the Macon road was destroyed, which has been repaired. The city is very quiet to-day. There is no shelling. The enemy deny the charge of shelling the city, and claim that their shot are all aimed at our defences. Gerard's division of cavalry has disappeared from Decatur. There is nothing from Wheeler.
