New York Dispatches have been received to-day from General Foster, who had a personal interview on the morning of Wednesday, the 14th instant, with General Sherman, at For which had been taken by assault on the preceding day. Savannah was closely designed, and its capture, with the rebel forces there, was confidently expected. It was to be summoned in two days, and if not surrendered.

As yet, however, we have heard of no material damage done; otherwise, all remains quiet along the line of the road."
