Gen Sherman reports, and date or half-past 7 o'clock yesterday evening, (19th,) he was mistaken in announcing that Johnston retreated across the Chattahoochee river.

Simultaneously with the movement of McPherson's troops the rest of the corps were advanced — Palmer directing himself towards the enemy's position on Kenesaw Mountain, Howard at Pine Mountain, the other corps filling up the gaps and participating in the general action. Hooker during the day made one of his magnificent assault is upon the enemy's works at the base of Los. Mountain.
