It will be recollected that the enemy assaulted our works and General Hood repulsed and charged them in turn. "Personne," the correspondent of the Savannah Republican, writing on the 23d, says: It is yet too early to send you a reliable estimate of either our losses or those of the enemy in the battle of yesterday. I can only state, on the authority of one of the corps medical directors, that a hasty reckoning of the causalities shows less than 4,000, and prob better off to-day behind our fortifications than when in the field; and since Governor Brown has begun his energetic work of throwing to the front the militia of Georgia, it is not revealing too much to remark that our condition will soon be such as to enable the commanding general to put the safety of Atlanta beyond peradventure,

have these three thousand Southern men, who are to-day so torn and bloody, won by their sacrifice? The answer is in a nut-shell. We had to fight or evacuate Atlanta — the battle has saved the city.

General Bragg is now at headquarters. His mission is arrive by nearly every train from the Georgia front. We noticed quite a crowd yesterday, whose personal appearance was anything but inviting. They were captured on Monday.--Macon Confederate. A letter from a member of the Savannah Relief Committee says two thousand Yankee prisoners left Atlanta for Macon, in 25th instant.

It is a favorite remark among the men, when you ask them how they regard the change in commanders: "Hood is a splendid fighter, but for a commissary-general give us old Joe Johnston." Four hundred factory girls, working in the cotton factory at Roswell, Georgia, were arrested by order of Sherman, the unfeeling beast, and sent north of the Ohio river, penniless and friendless, to seek a livelihood among a strange and hostile people. A large number of prisoners continue to arrive by nearly every train from the Georgia front. We noticed quite a crowd yesterday, whose personal appearance was anything but inviting.

taught Sherman that in General Hood he has an adversary as fruitful in resources as he is audacious in execution, and hence the Yankee commander has anticipated the necessity of acting hereafter as much on the defensive as on the aggressive. The pride and recklessness with which he has thus far advanced have been measurably checked by the rough handling he has unexpectedly received, and we may look for an exercise by him of a degree of tenderness and caution that has marked his career from Dalton. The contest in front of the corps of General Cheatham was not less desperate than that of Hardee. The enemy were here in position. They had not only their own complete breastworks, with powerful abattis, but those built by our troops; and when pressed held their ground and delivered their fire with a steadiness that could not have been withstood but for the co- operation of our flanking column.--Here, also, occurred hand-to-hand encounters, in which men were bayonetted, knocked down w

The Yankees engaged on this portion of the line were the corps of Dodge, Blair and Logan, with reinforcements from Schofield, who held a position along our centre. The whole were under command of General McPherson. There being three divisions to a corps, the disparity of numbers between the antagonists may be readily observed. It was doubtless "dash" which gave us the victory, for had the Federal been apprised of our approach in time they would have so fortified their left as to have utterly defeated the bold movement of the day.
