[From the Kaleixh Progress.j
The Iialton correspondent ol the Atlanta
Register avers that the programme of the Abo
lition Government of the pending spring cam
paign has been fixed beyond doubt, and, ac
cording to all indications, will oj-en with a
grand demonstration in an attempt against
Atlanta. The movement of troons on the part
of ihe enemy, and all his preparations, point
plainly in that direction. It is known that
the concentration of the enemy's forces in the
direction of Chattanooga it greater than on the
Potomac, and there is more activity there than
at the latter point.
The foregoing is exactly in accordance with
onr vte-we, expreFsed in this paper a few days
apo. Whatever appearance of attack upon
Lee, or on North Carolina, the enemy may keep
up. we canno' rid of the impression or pre
sentiment that "On to Atlanta" is now his
watchword. We know our opinion in such
matter is worth but little, nor won'.d weobtrude
it en any one presumptuously, but still eur
cpinion if. tbat while the "On to Richmond" is
but a feint, the "On to Atlanta" is a reality.
