attahoochee. Farther than that he cannot go without destruction, nor can he stay where he is without whipping Hood's army. From the Valley of Virginia. The enemy achieved a small success in the vicinity of Winchester on the 22d, which will be duly magnified by the Northern papers into a brilliant victory. It appears that, misled by information in regard to the enemy's strength, a Confederate force marched out to attack them, when they suddenly found themselves in the presence of Averill's and Crook's entire commands. In the fight which ensued we lost some two hundred and fifty men captured, and four pieces of artillery. The force engaged was not a portion of the command which entered Maryland, but simply a party stationed at Winchester as a guard. All the property captured by our "army of invasion" has reached a place of security, and will speedily be rendered available to the Confederate cause. All accounts received of the engagement at Snicker's represent tha

about ten miles south of Atlanta. It was doubtless while making this movement that Hardee attacked him on the 22d. To cover this movement it appears that the enemy made heavy demonstrations on our extreme left against the corps of Lieut. Gen. Stewart and Gen. Cheatham, which had been placed in line of battle around Atlanta, but were handsomely repulsed. The following is Gen. Hood's official dispatch, received at the War Department: Headquarters Atlanta, July 23d, 1864. Hon. James A. Seddon, Secretary of War: The enemy shifted his position on Peach Tree Creek last night, and Gen. Stewart's and Cheatham's corps formed line of battle around the city. Gen. Hardee's corps made a night march, and attacked the enemy's extreme left today. About one o'clock he drove him from his works, capturing sixteen pieces of artillery and five stands of colors. Gen. Cheatham attacked the enemy, capturing six pieces of artillery. During the engagement we captured about two t

Cheatham attacked the enemy, capturing six pieces of artillery. During the engagement we captured about two thousand prisoners. Gen. Wheeler's cavalry routed the enemy in the neighborhood of Decatur to-day, capturing his camp. Our loss is not yet fully ascertained. Major Gen. Walker was killed. Brig Gens. Smith, Gist, and Mercer were wounded. Prisoners report that Gen. McPherson was killed. Our troops fought with great gallantry. J. B. Hood, General. The "Associated Press" dispatch is very muddy, though we presume that the Gens. Smith and Giles mentioned in it are Gens. Smith and Gist mentioned by Gen. Hood. Had the enemy captured East Point that would have completely invested the city, and Sherman could have commenced his siege. The brilliant movement of Wheeler, who is now, it appears
mortar lines, and it is presumed that the fire had some effect, for on yesterday the Yankees were perfectly docile, and desisted in a great measure from their accustomed practice of shelling the city. It was currently reported yesterday that Grant was again "changing his base" by making a movement to the North side of James river; but we have been unable to learn that it has any foundation in fact. The only thing known with certainty is that some movement has been in progress in the enemy's camp, but the people of Petersburg seem to be as much mystified in regard to its nature as those living at a greater distance from the scene of operations. It is stated on what is deemed good authority that Grant is moving his forces on the two rivers — the Appomattox and the James. The scar city of water in the interior doubtless had something to do with this movement; but the more probable solution is that it was done for the convenience of removing the troops to any particular locality

ears that when Sherman crossed the Chattahoochee he did so with an arrangement of his forces intended for the investment of Atlanta. Our army faced due north.--Gen. Thomas's corps crossed the river above the railroad bridge and in front of Gen. Hood's right, and remained there. McPherson's corps crossed above Thomas and moved around our right to flank it, reaching the Atlanta and Augusta railroad at Stone Mountain Station, thus cutting one communication. Here they were joined by Dodge and Blair's corps, (16th and 17th). Logan's corps is at Decatur, six miles east of Atlanta and nine miles from the force at Stone Mountain. It was apprehended that McPherson's corps, strongly supported, would swing around to their left still further and strike East Point, the junction of the Atlanta and West Point and Macon and Western railroads, which join about ten miles south of Atlanta.
