From a courtier from Gen Johnston's quarters we learn that the Yankees are entrenching south and east of Peavine and Pumpkinvine creeks. Our forces maintain their positions on the commanding eminences to the north of Altoona, and are entrenched on the crests of the hills to the southeast. We hold the key to the positions the Yankees are monœuvering for, though at present the opposing armies are nearly in the same condition with regard to base. The enemy haul their supplies from Cartersville and Etowah to Dallas, making a line of over twenty miles. Our line is nearly as long, but arranged with the master skill of our great Captain, with a view to securing the best advantages of supply and defence. We look on the arrangement as perfect and masterly as the mind of a great master of war can make it. We are certain, too, that the defence and necessary strategy will foil the plans of the enemy and ruin the foe. His legions are now dismayed at the thought that a dangerous foe is s
they came across they killed. Under this barbarous treatment our informant says that the spirit of our people there is as determined as ever before in its loyalty to the South.--The women especially exhibit no sign of yielding to the vandal foe; on the contrary, while they have to endure, they bid defiance to their vile oppressors: They have to submit, but they scorn and spit at the thieving vandals. The Atlanta Appeal says: A gentleman well known in this city, who left Cartersville, Ga., on Sunday last, reports that the Federals were shipping off the sick and wounded, and hospitals from that point towards Chattanooga, and all who had affiliated with the Yankees were selling off their personal effects. This, in connection with the burning of factories and mills indicates a movement either forward or rears aid of Sherman's army. The gentleman also states that, had Johnston remained three days longer at Kennesaw Mountain, Sherman would have retreated. The Federals adm
handsomely repulsed with severe loss to the rebels. In the evening they hastily retreated towards Dalton and Dallas, leaving their dead and four to six hundred wounded in our possession. Our loss was about three hundred killed, wounded and missing. General Corse is reported wounded. On the 4th instant, a large force appeared on the Chattanooga railroad, near Ackwerth station, destroyed several pieces of the track and burned Big Shanty. Two bridges across the Chattahoochee at Cartersville and Ressaca have been damaged by heavy rains. A rebel force, near Dalton, on the 3d, moving in an easterly direction, had two hundred and fifty wagons. A division of the rebel force was seen moving up the Etowah river, probably with the intention of crossing to this side. The Herald has New Orleans dates to the 29th ultimo: The rebel Trans-Mississippi army was said to be concentrating near Rodney for the purpose of endeavoring to get on the east side of the Mississipp
e said of a hundred days rations and an abundant supply of food, we know very well that there is no truth in the statement. Sherman's supply trains were captured, one after another, and immense quantities of army food destroyed by our cavalry. A considerable amount was run into Atlanta, but it could not have been very great. There may be a quantity of commissary stores at Knoxville, but that is about as accessible to Sherman as to us. Sherman's army is not so great as is generally supposed; they are, however, the flower of the Northern army, and fight well. There is one corps, eight thousand strong, at Atlanta. Thomas has twelve thousand with him. There are five thousand at Cartersville, two thousand at Etowah, and the remainder of the army will count twenty-three thousand. This makes a total of fifty thousand. The cavalry amount to about five thousand. This being the approximate strength of the enemy, our army, if well managed can easily disconcert and baffle them.
