is the avenue, if Johnston has chosen to avail himself of it, through which to make a flank movement in rear of the Snake Creek Gap and shut off the enemy's retreat. Johnston has but to swing his right around, push it through Dug Gap, and the deed is done. The enemy are apparently bottled up for preservation, unless he succeeds in driving Johnston's left, getting possession of Resaca and the railroad, and opening a free passage generally. Such is said to have been the situation on the 11th, and it is pretty clear that Sherman has pursued a policy which must eventuate in a great Federal success or a terrible failure.

He says he found himself suddenly in the midst of the Confederates, and he thought it better to surrender than to have a ball put through his body. He had no idea when he came into that place that he was getting so near the rebels. He says that the Yankees had become well apprised of one thing, which was that they are not fighting Bragg now. The position of the Yankees is on the west side of the Oostenaula river and west of Snake creek, which runs into it. What force they have there is not known. Our troops are most eager for the fray, whooping and yelling all the time, and sanguine of the result. They say, to a man, that they are "going to whip the fight."

After a slight skirmish our men fell back, apparently in confusion, but in order to more effectually draw the enemy after them. The enemy run up their artillery to within about six hundred yards of our guns, when we opened on them with sucJohnston. Our men fought all day Sunday behind the works they had thrown up Friday night and had strengthened the night previous. At four o'clock in the afternoon of Sunday there was a general charges on our part, in which the divisions of Cheatham. Stewart, and Stevenson participated.

The main body of our forces have been moved to corresponding positions, and the two armies now confront each other in such proximity that a general engagement is imminent, and may be looked for at any moment. The wires are so crowded with Government dispatches that but little can be sent by telegraph. Sunday afternoon, at 3 o'clock, Stevenson's division, of Hood's corps, felt of the Yankees, and brought on a sharp fire of musketry and shells, which was kept up until night closed on the scene. A shell passed through the telegraph office at Resaca a little after 4 o'clock, causing quite a commotion among the operators. The working of the line, however, was interrupted only for a few minutes. Among the prisoners brought in by our forces Saturday was a correspondent of the Cincinnati Times, who was taken near Resaca.

Immense columns of the enemy, with their trains of artillery and wagons, were on the 11th plunging down the valley west of the Chattanooga Ridge, and entering by Snake Creek Gap the plateau west of Resaca and the line of the railroad and joining Hooker's corps, already there. This gap has been left open to the enemy for a number of days. It is seventeen miles southwest of Dalton, and the next gap above it, in the same ridge, is Dug Gap, which we hold, and where the enemy has made repeated assaults in vain. Dug G

Indeed the greater portion of it has not yet been under fire, having been held in reserve for some purpose known only to the God of battles and Joseph M. Johnston. Our men fought all day Sunday behind the works they had thrown up Friday night and had strengthened the night previous. At four o'clock in the afternoon of Sunday there was a general charges on our part, in which the divisions of Cheatham. Stewart, and Stevenson participated. The enemy came up in line, were scattered by heavy volleys from our entrenchments, and as they fled our men were ordered to charge, and, leaping over the works, they drove the Yankees a quarter of a mile, when they ran up on the reserve line of the enemy, and were compelled to fall back to their original line. In this charge most of the men were wounded who came down yesterday. The loss of the enemy since the fight opened on Friday last is calculated at five to one. T
