It appears that when Sherman crossed the Chattahoochee he did so with an arrangement of his forces intended for the investment of Atlanta. Our army th 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, operation on the enemy, 'instead of covering our retreats, if correctly reported, is very damaging to Sherman's army. The supplies for the Yankees are brought across the Chattahoochee, and then wagoned to Decatur, a distance of about 15 miles, and this interruption of ras in the rear, coupled with the disastrous fighting in the front with Hardee, is likely to cause a change of position in Sherman's whole force — probably to the extent of falling back to the line of the Chattahoochee.

ion of the Atlanta and West Point and Macon and Western railroads, which join 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 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 ae, and then wagoned to Decatur, a distance of about 15 miles, and this interruption of rations in the rear, coupled with the disastrous fighting in the front with Hardee, is likely to cause a change of position in Sherman's whole force — probably to the extent of falling back to the line of the Chattahoochee.

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 that the Yankees

Gen. 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.
