The mail steamer John Brooks arrived here
t his morning, at ? o'clock, from City Point,
with a large number of passengers and the
Yesterday morning, a3 the steamer Spauld
1 eg, leaded with troope, aad having in tow a
barge loaded with horses, was coming down
the James river, she was fired upon by a rebel
fWd battery ot fonr pieces, stationed a little
above Harrison s Landing. The Spauldiug
put on a full head of steam and run past the
battery, returning the fire from two pieces of
canupn on board belonging to the troops. One
ct the rebel sbots passed through the wheel
bouse of the Spaulding, and another struck
the targe, killing live horses, bnt doing no
ether damage, so far as known Several otber
beats which were in advance ot the Spauld
ing were also fired upon, but with what re
sult is not known.
As the John Brooks hove in eight of Harri
son's Landing six shots were fired at her from
the rebel battery, which caused the greatest
consternation among tbe passengers on board,
who rushed wildly about th* boat seeking a
place of safety. The first shot fired fell short,
and the others passed over the boat in close
proximity to tbe beads of these on deck. The
Broods, bfinir unprotected, with no means of
replying to the rebel battery, hove to and put
bactf to City Pci&t
Gunboats were immediately despatched to
tbe point at which the battery was stationed,
and, alter a spirited exchange of shots, the
battery was silenced The Brooks tben came
down the river under cover of one of the pan
boais, while several others remained lor some
I'me and shelled the shores cf the river.

THE BATTLES BEFORE ATLANTA, i
From tbe Nashville Union of July .'list, we [
clip the following interesting accounts of op
erations before Atlanta:
Official despatches have just been received
in tnis city, giving some further particulars j
of tbe battle of tbe 2rth. Tbe rebels made
several assaults upon our lines, which were
completely covered by fortifications, and at
eacti time were handsomely repulsed.

in the battle, evinces that the troops lately in j
Mississippi have been recalled, and united to
Hood's army, since their deft-at by Gen.
Hood has evidently determined to win a
victory or make Atlanta tbe grave of his
army. All we have to say is, we hope he
will persevere in hi? resolution. We wonder
it he will claim a victory on the 2?th !
Letter from the Front
We are permitted to copy the following ex
tracts from a private letter, dated near Atlan

?? If rumor is as busy and unreliable in the !
?l City ot Rocks' as a few mil^s in our rear, you '
have doubtless heard of the occupation of At- i
lanta by onrarmy. It is premature. The rebel |
army boids it, and appearances indicate an ?
intention upo n their pttri to obstinately defend
"On tbe 16th we cios-ed the Chattahoochee
river, and on the 20th had advanced our line to
within tour and a half miles of Atlanta, when
tbe rebels assaulted a portion of our line con
bis ting ol Howard's Corps, also Hooker's, and
the 1st Brigade of our (Rousseau's old) divi

repulsed three impetuous charges, inflicting
severe punishment upon the rebel columns.

MADE HIS ESCAPE FROM THE REBELS.
George Coburn, who was gobbled up by the
rebels, from his residence, near Mr. Blair's
furm, in Montgomery county, adb who was
reported to have been shot by his captors,
made his escape from the rebeli at Martins
burg:, and returned to his home ou Monday
night. Mr. Coburn says that the rebels com
fiellod him to act as a guide while in Mary
and, and that when they arrived at Rockville
on their retreat from Washington, placed hlni
in irons and carried him to Strasburg, where
he was informed by the rebel Gen. Brad John
son that if he did not join the Confederates he
should have nothing to eat. Mr. Coburu says
he held out as lang as be could, and finding
himself growing weak for want of something
to eat, he enlisted in the rebel service, but took
the first opportunity to escape.
At the battle near Martinsbnrg, between
Hunter and the rebels, the Confederates lost
heavily by their own troops firing into each
other. * They appeared to be greatly confused,
and a six pound cannon ball, fired from one of
their own batteries, killed the horse which
