Advices from Gen. Sherman, received to
day, coyer operations down to last night.
The work of in resting the city U fast going
on. There was some hard fighting yesterday,
resulting in a repulse of the enemy in his ef
forts to dislodge our troops.
Gen. Palmer advanced his line toa more ad
vantageous position. Our loss during the day
According to report, the rebels have been in
dustriously fortifying Atlanta, first by an ex
tensive line of rifle pits nine miles in length,
covering an interior line of fortifications pro
tected by abattjs, and interlaced with an inner
series of rifle pits. The position of the city is,
however, not favorable for defense, and it is
evident that the rebels do not countupon being
able to hold it by the aid of its defensive
P. S. We learn, since writing the above, that
Sherman has torn up some five miles of the
railroa d between Atlanta and Decatnr, and, on
one portion of his lines, holds a position over
looking Atlanta, and from which it can be
shelled, if necessary. There was considerable
fightirg going on on Wednesday, as well as
yes.erday. we learn, resulting advantageously
to us. Everything is progressing most favora
bly to us, according to all reports from that
A DESTRUCTIVE BLOW.
We understand that Garrard's cavalry de
stroyed at Rossville,Georgia, woollen factories
which turned out thirty thousand yards, and
cotton factories making three hundred thou
sand yards of cloth monthly, besides a paper
and a starch mill and other factories. This is
a heavy blow to the resources of the rebellion.
Thete rebel cloth mills thus destroyed bySher.
man's army have been employed and run on
r?bol government account, and have been a
leading source of supply for the rebel army.
THE REPORTED FIGHT AT LBE8BURG.
No confirmation of the reported fight at Lees
burg has been received here. If a fight had
taken place yesterday at Leesburg, which is
in the Department of Washington, it would
doubtless be known at Gen. Auger's head
quarters by this time, but no information of
the sort has reached tnere.
The Navy Department has received informa
tion of the following captures:
On the loth instant, the 6loop Hope, of Nas
sau, N. P., loaded with nineteen bales of cot.
ton and nine boxes of tobacco, from Savannah,
was captured by the V. S. steamer Ladond
while attempting to run out of Sapelo. The
cargo of the Hope has been sent to Philadel
phia tor adjudication.
On the night of the 20th of June, the sloop
Mary, of Nassau, N. P., was captured by the
tT. s! steamer Norfolk Packet, off Mosquito
Inlet, Fla. The Mary had on board nine bales
cf cotton and one passenger named M. J.
Buckner, of Savannah, Ga., who has frequent
ly run the blockade. The vessel was sent to
Port Royal station, where she sank in Horse

THB PnKMDKNT'B FKBLING FOR THB SOL
tmbrk.?During the time that the rebels were
engaged in their bombardment of Fort Stevens,
Mr. Lincoln happened to pass a short time
within the walls of that fortification. A shot
from the enemy passed into the fort, and, stri
king seme projection, glanced off, the ball en
tering the leg of a soldier. Mr. Lincoln cast his
eye first toward the point of impingement and
iur:i at iue sunerillg soiuiei, nia eiciiuiutj,
while a happy smile irradiated his features,
*' That was a good carom!" The unfeeling re
mark was heard by some soldiers standing
near, and produced, as might naturally be ex
pected, considerable indignation.?.V<io Yuri:
There was no " bombardment" oi Fort Ste
vens, and no incident there to serve even as a
foundation for tLe World's transparent lie.
Why cannot these copperhead papers maintain
some consistency in their villiflcation of the
President.' While the New York World, as
above, describes him as in the midst of the
fight making cold-blooded jokes at the expense
of the wounded, the New York News insists
that he was concealed in abject terror on board
a gunboat in the river dnring the visit of the
Confederates here ! We advise the3e copper
nead journalists to compare notes betore pub
lishing their manufactured "incidents" abu
sive of the President.

Tub Fortikicatioks op atlanta.-The
correspondent of the Cincinnati Gazette, writ
ing from the banks of the Chattrhoochee,
speaks thus of the fortifications of Atlanta:
??Ascending a high hill which overlooked the
river, 1 got a splendid view of the doomed city
of Atlanta, with its net-work of defences.
Frcm the banks of the river all the way up
to the city there is a suc cession of earthworks.
It would be impossible to conceive of a more
strongly fortified place. Not far from the
banks of the liver 1 noticed a fort, which i3
said to have some twenty siege gnns. In regard
to the railroad bridge, in my former letter, I
stated that we held it. I was misinformed?
we do not hold it, but the rebels have not de
stroyed it. The cars run up as far as our lines
and scream victory into the ears of the rebels
on the other side of the river.
Dibai poibtbd.?The Richmond Enquirer of
the Ulth Inst., states that whether the capture
of Washington was or was not the object of
the late raid, its fail was most anxiously ex
pected until late news brought the knowledge
of the fact that the rebels had withdrawn
from the front of the Federal Capital. The
Enquirer consoles itself with the scare created
aid say* the accidental arrival of "C&nby's
corps from New Orleans'' saved the city. It
acknowledges that the raid comprised "forty
edd thousand men," and much yet was hoped
from it in aid of the rebel cause. The hope is
tviiuuaieij uupeued by the retreit of the
raiders, and the recapture of a large portion of
their plander by Gen. Crook at Snicker's Gap.

representatives of the Boston weekly press on

| GREELEY AND SANDERS' CORRES
A Letter from the President? His Views of
I the Restoration of Peace?How the Cor
: Burraxo, July 21.?The correspondence with
the rebel agents shows that Messrs. Clay, Hol
comb, and Sanders asked, on the 12th, of Hor
sce Oreeley, the protection of the President or
the Secretary of War to rlsit Washington. Mr.
Greeley, in reply of the 18th, understanding
that they were bearers of a proposition from.
I Richmond looking to peace, tendered a sale
conduct of the President.
They replied they were net accredited with
such proposition, but were in confidential em
ploy of their Government, and felt authorised
| to declare, if the circumstances disclosed in this
correspondence were communicated at Rich
mond, they or other gentlemen would be vested
. with full power. They asked a safe conduct to
Washington, and thence to Richmond. Mr.
Greeley answered that that state ef tacts being
materially different from that understood to
exist by the President, it was advisable for him
I to communicate by telegraph with him and ob
j tain instructions.
After some further correspondence in rela
| tion to Greeley's communication with Presi
dent Lincoln, the following was received from
. the latter:
Exbctttivb Mawsiow, )
I Wabhikotow, July 18,1864. t
j lo whom it may concern:
Any proposition which embraces the restor
| ation of peace, the Integrity of the whole
Union, and the abandonment of slavery, and
which comes by and with authority that can
control the armies now at war against the
United States, will be received and considered
by the Executive Government of the United
States, and will be met by liberal terms on
other substantial and collateral points; and the
bearer or bearers thereof shall have safe
conduct both ways.
To Hon. Her act Greeley.
Major Hay, on the 20th, in a note, asks Hol
comb and others if they have any communica
tion to send to Washington by him. Holcomb
replies on the 21st, regretting he has been de
layed by any expectation of an answer to his
communication delivered to the President of
the United States, adding that the communis
cation was accepted as a response to the letter
of Clay and Holcomb to Mr. Greeley, and to
that gentleman has an answer been trans
The letter to Mr.Greeley, after alluding to
the tender ef a safe conduct to Washington on
the hypothesis that we were duly accredited
lrom Richmond as bearers of propositions
looking to the establishment of peace, says
this assertion was accepted as evidence of an
unexpected but most gratifying change in the
policy of the President?a change which we
felt authorized to hope might terminate in
the conclusion of a peace mutually just, hon
orable and advantageous to the North and the
Exacting no condition but that we should be
duly accredited from Richmond as bearers of
a proposition looking to the establishment of
peace, thus proffering a basis for conference as
comprehensive as we could desire, it seemed
to us that the President opened a door that had
previously been closed against the Confed
erate States for full interchange of sentiments,
free discussion of conflicting opinions, and un
trammelled effort to remove all causes of con
troversy bv liberal negotiations.
We indeed could not claim the benefit of
safe conduct, which had been extended to us
in a character we had no right to assume, and
had never affected to possess, but the uniform
declarations of our Executive and Congress,
and their thrice-repeated and as often repulsed
attempts to open negotiations, furnish suffi
cient pledge that this conciliatory manifesta
tion on the part of the President of the United
States would be met by then* in a temper of
equal magnanimity. We had, therefore, no
hesitation in declaring, that if this correspon
dence was communicated to the President of
the Confederate States, he would promptly em
brace the opportunity presented for seeking a
peaceful solution of this unhappy strife. We
foe I fftnBHoni ih?t you iuiul euaI6 onr proioiuiu
regTet that the spirit which dictated the first
step towards peace had not continued to ani
mate the counsels of your President. Had the
representatives of the two Governments met
to consider this question, the most momentous
ever submitted to human statesmanship, in a
temper of becoming moderation and ecjuitv,
followed as their deliberations would have
been by prayers and benedictions of every
patriot and Christian on the habitable globe,
who is there so bold as to pronounce that
this frightful waste of individual happiness
and public prosperity which is daily saddening
the universal heart might not have been termi
nated, or, if the desolation and carnage of war
must still be endured through weary years of
blood and suffering, that there might not at
least have been infused Into its conduct some
thing more ot the spirit which softens and par
tially redeems its brutality!
Instead of the safe conduct which we solici
ted, and which your first letter gave us every
reason to suppose woula be extended for the
purpose of initiating negotiations in which
neither Government would compromise its
rigbtsor its dignity, a document is presented
which provokes as much indignation as sur
prise. It bears no feature of resemblance to
that which was originally offered, and is unlike
any paper which ever before emanated from
the constitutional Executive of a free people.
Addressed to whom it may concern, it pre
cludes negotiations and proscribes in advance
the terms and conditions of peace.
It returns to the original policy of no bar
gaining, no negotiations, no truces with rebels,
except to bury their dead, until every man
shall have laid down his arms, submitted to
the Government, and sued for mercy. What
may be the explanation of this sudden and en
tire change in the views of the President; of
this rude withdrawal of a courteous overture
for negotiation at the moment it was likely to
be accepted; of this emphatic recall of words of
peace just uttered, and fresh blasts of war to
the bitter end, we leave for the speculation of
those who have the means or inclination to
penetrate the mysteries of his cabinet; or to
fathom the caprice of his imperial will.
It is enough for us to say that we have no
use whatever for the paper which has b^en
placed in our hands. We could not transmit
it to the President of the Confederate States
without offering him an indignity, dishonoring
ourselves, and incurring the well-merited
scorn of our countrymen. Whilst an ardent
desire for peace pervades the people of the
Confederate States, we rejoice to say there are
few, if any, among them who would purchase
it at the expense of liberty,- honor and self
If there be any military autocrat at the North
who is entitled to proffer the conditions of this
manilesto, there is none in the South author
ized to entertain them Those who control our
armies are servants of the people, not their
masters, and they have no more an inclina
tion than they have a right to subvert social
institutions of sovereign States, to overthrow
their established constitutions, and to barter
away their priceless heritage of self-govern
