Hood, it seems, was deceived by false information from his scouts, and the Yankees state as much on him. We copy from the correspondence as follows: I have been informed that the following was General Hood's plan of operations on the 30th of August, Yankee Howard's grand corps of eighteen thousand, made a forced march of sixteen miles from Fairburn, on the West Point road, to Jonesboro', on the Macon road.

This is interesting as a part of the history of the operations around Jackson and the evacuation of Atlanta. We have not seen if elsewhere from any other source.--As the correspondent says, "the plan was certainly bold and have done this by throwing all of his army upon a part of Sherman's — the nearest part of it to Atlanta. If, indeed, Sherman did divided his army and scatter it over a line of twenty-eight miles, Hoke had been fatal, He fell into the opposite extreme of distrust, and ordered the evacuation of Atlanta, which he had not, until then, contemplated. He still had the Augusta railroad, which the enemy could not reach, and which would have enabled him to hold Atlanta. His army was still but little hurt, and might still have fought a general battle on the next day, but he had lost confidence in h
