From rumors this morning, it is evident that
this force bas been withdrawn from Middle
burg, and once more posted at Hager&tewn,
?where the rebels evidently pause in tbeir pro
gress for reinforcements. The fact that thsy
were signalling by rockets lastnightat Hagers
town is an indication that there is either a force
in close proximity to that place, or those in
possession of the town desire to inform ap
proachiBg parties ol their whereabouts.

Retreat up the Potomac.
H abrisburg, August 6.?A dispatch re
ceived here at noon, by the Cashier of the
Harrisburg Bank, from the Cashier of tLe
Bank of Chambersburg, states that the rebels
evacuated Hagerstown this morning. This
was subsequently confirmed by dispatches to
headquarters, which added that the rebels
are now retreating along the Potomac in the
direction of Shepherdstown.
The last dispatch from the operator at Green
castle stated that be was about to proceed to
the State line, and from thence to Hagerstown,
to open up telegraphic communication.

are thought to be engaged.
Retreat of the Rebels.
Harribburg, August 6.?Passengers by the
Cumberland Valley train, at noon, report that
the rebels bave left Hagerstown, not having
committed any depredations whatever thus
far. The rebel picket line at Middleburg has
receded. The telegraph line, however, is cut
beyond Greencastle, so that we have but few
particulars. This whole movement is regarded
as a feint to cover a grander movement on the
Potomac, but has failed in every way.

This is made certain by tne fact that we have
telegraphic communication with Hagerstown,

rumor ot a battle. . ^ ,
It is difficult to ascertain where the rebels are
posted, but the impression among the military
men here is that a collision will take place near
Middletown, on the CatooUa crook, about
twelve miles,north of Frederick.

Nsab Atlanta, Ga., July 2!).?A week ago
to-day the Army of the Tennessee lost its be.
lovea commander in the great battle southeast
ot the walls of the Gate City. Yesterday the
invincible army confronted the same city on
the southwest, and again fought with a steadi
ness which certainly has never been excelled
in the history of the war. At midnight on the
2ih, the 16th corps, from the extreme left,
marched towards toe right. It was immedi
ately followed by the 17ta corps, and it by the
l5&. By lour o'clock ol the 27th, cne advance
of G'en. Dodge's command began to go into po
sition on the right df Jeft. C. Davis* division,
14th corps. Gen. Morgan's brigade of this
division was formed in colnmn of attack on
the right of Gen. Davis' line, to aid in taking
position. Gen. Corse's division was placed
next?Col. Rice's brigade first, and Lieut. Col.
Phillips' brigade next. Gen. Fuller's division,
which was a little delayed in getting up,
formed still on the right?Col. Sprague's brig
ade first, and Lieut Col. McDowell'a on the
When all was ready, Gen. Morgan moved
forward and easily drove in the rebel skir
mishers. The brigades on his right moved up
in turn, each clearing its front of the rebel
pickets, and meeting with no loss of conse
quence. By dark the line was preity well
established for the 16th Corps, facing east, and
the l~th Corps was well on its ri^ht, while
the 15th was in bivouac in rear of the 17th.
In tbe advance of our troop* tbey found a
rebel captain killed, and left on the ground.
Thus was the Army of the Tennessee trans
ferred for the fifth time in this campaign from
one flank to the other. The boys say that Gen.
Sberman styles this army his corkscrew, by
which he draws out the obstinate cork of the
Although I learn that Schofleld repulsed our
attack on his line yesterday, and that Palmer
sent ont a strong skirmish line which foand
the enemy In column of attack in his front,
from which be did not attempt to advance, yet
the battle of yesterday, 1 presume, can be safe
ly located in the Army of the Tennessee, and
particularly on Gen Logan's corps.
It was just into position, or rather just going
into position, when it found its 2d division,
Gen. Morgan L. Smith, confronted by a rebel
colnmn of attack, which In a moment bore
down upon the division with almost irresisti
ble violence. Again as on the 22d, our troops
had no intrenebments, but this gallant corps,
the names of whoee battles its flags are not
large enough to contain, made no objection to
an open fight. Massed closely In colnmn, the
enemy hurled again and again his new lines
against Logan, only to have them one after
another cnt to pices and sent rolling back. But
more troops were brought up, and again the
attack was made at nearly the same place. Oar
men, who had marched and worked two nighta
and a day with scarcely any ^est, and who
now had passed through an action quite as se
vere as usually falls to the lot or a division in
the severest battles, again stood up to ponr
their leaden hall into the advancing column.
Not an inch was yielded, not a man flinched.
With a valor that can never be too well ap
preciated or two well rewarded, Gen. Logan's
corps held its ground from 11 o'clock until 5,
under attacks too numerous to be remembered,
and at night claimed the heaps of rebel dead
and wonnded in its front. There can be node
feat possible to such troops.
During the course of the battle Gen. Howard
called up four regiments from Gen. Dodge, to
be ready in case of need, and Lieut. Col. Puil
lips, with the Slst Ohio and 12th Illinois, of his
brigade, and Col. Claddock, with the 35th New
Jersey and 64th Illinois of Fuller's division,
went to their support. They were not called
on. however, to fight.
This excellent division was sent early in the
morning on the Turner's Ferry road toward
the river. It became engaged there slightly
with some cavalry of the enemy, but was or
dered back to fall on the flank of the rebel at
tacking column. Owing to the want of roads,
he could not get up In time. He must be
v-ry near the Macon road, and threatening It.
Oen. Howard, the Havelock of our army,
assumed command of the Department and
Army of the Tennessee on the 27th inst., in aa
order which at once endears him to every sol
dier whom he commands. As a model of
brevity and beauty of diction it cannot be sur
1 have heard no estimate of onr own losses
yesterday. Those ot the enemy are put at
lrom three to four thousand, which, from the
nature of the ground and the extent of the
lighting, I should think a low estimate. Hood's
and Hardee's corps had followed our move
ment and just got into position when the attack
During the day the enemy got a battery of
12-ponnders in position, bo they nearly enfi
laded the line of the lUth corps, and they threw
shells fast and fnrions for nearly an hoar.
They fell In all sorts of places. Gen. Dodge's
headquarters were particularly hot for a
while. A shell struck once within twenty eet
of the General, and covered him with the dirt
thrown up. General Fuller escaped little bet
ter; nor was General Corse forgotten. All the
teams were moved to the rear. In the works
one man was killed, belonging to Battery F.
2d U. S. Artillery. As soon as the ehelling
ceased, our boys all became engineers, and
began building traverses to protect themselves
from another trial. On our part no artillery
was used. It was purely au infantry battle.
Even the rebel guns played more to the right
of the troops attacked, than directly towards

The Battle of the 28th.
Headquarters 16th a. C., Army of the
Tenn., Ga., July28.?To-day has witnessed
another spirited conflict between our men aad
the rebels. This morning at an early hour I
went to the right where there were probable
indications of a fight. 1 passed Gen. Hooker's
Corps, (20th,) aad was informed that General
Hooker was out making a farewell address to
bis troops. He has been relieved of his com
mand at his own request. The 16th, 17th, and
15th Army Corps were in position and It was
quite evident that a storm was brewing. The
15th Army Corps had formed on the right of
the 17th, and about 11 o'clock a. m., had % ot
into position. A strong skirmish line waa
thrown forward, which drove the rebel skir
mish line back. The enemy was In column of
attack, and in torn drove our skirmish line
At'12 o'clock m. the "fun grew" fast and
furious, and continued without cessation for
three and a half boars. For want of suitable
position. I suppose, there was comparatively
little artillery firing. The 15th maintained Its
ground with a valor deserving of the highest
praise. The enemy charged them five or six
times, and were repulsed In every Instance.
There is quite a common remark in camp, that
Hood, if left alone, will butt his brains ont
against our army, It's rather questionable
whether he has'any brains, judging by hia
mode of fighting. At a very moderate esti
mate, be has not lost less than 20,000 men ainoe
the 2Uth. What his loss has been to-day I have
been unable to ascertain; but I am satisfied
that it is very large.
The loss of the 15th, who did the principal
part of the fighfing, 1b not very heavy.
