Like Wil*cios Micawber, ho is wait ing for sometbing to turn up. The goal of his ambition wa.s Atlanta Bv great saperiurity of nuQibcr', he tucc- ’c i La advancing from Dalton at the rate of a mile and a halt a day and at length arrived within .sight of the city, at the cost cf fifty thousand of his men. The acmy of Tennessee waa eonipfclled as' long as it remained on the other side ot the Chatrahoochee, to protect the railroad on which its snsteDaRce depended, and this en- abl HI Sherman to make use of his superior num bers to tbe greatest advantajrc by carrying on a series of flank movement-. The moment the army cr-'ssed to this side of the liver, the position of aifciirs was ehatjged. The troops could be fed by other means than a single line ot railway. A sal- fic’ent force would be left in the trcnclns im mediately around Atlanta to defend the city, and the remaind-;r of the army could move in any di rection the emergency m'ght require. The flank ing process came to an end, for the moment a column moved for that purpose, the whole of our force, with the exception of that left in the cn- trenchmeats, couid be brought ai-ain it it. Sher man, therefore, is at a stand stiil. He dare not .assail our works in front, and every attempt made to get on our flanks has been defeated. That he will eoon be compelled to attack our works, or ehe attempt a retreat, wc have every confidence Wheeler is in his roar, destroyin'^, trains, teariiie up the track, and burning bridge." He cannot remain idle. One of two things must be do—sweep Hood from his front occjnv At lanta and re-e.stablish his eoaimunications, or el«e attempt to fall back to Dalton. H he decide unon the former course, he will be coiupell >d to attack our forces in their entrenchm’nts, and will mos«- certainly ho whipped—if the latter, ho vrill bo as sailed at every foot by the pursuing army of Ten- U‘.-see, aid stand but a slim ehsnce of reaching a plane of safety with half of his command. We predict thnt within ten days Sherman will be flying northvards and the c.-'mnaigu ended. lY'/Us verront—}hcon f The hosts of the enemy still environ Atlanta.

Owens and Floyd,doKcrters, arraigned for oc.;>it^.l eff'-aecfl, were turned over to tha milita o’ Pa'iwt. Recruitiiuj in the United States.—The yan kecs have exhausted nearly every remedy to pre vent the draft for Lincoln’s five hundred thou sand additional candidates fur the “.slau'rhtcr pens ” They have tried appeals to the “patriot-” of their citizens; they have promised the lands snd movables of thfl people of the Conf«rie r»te States; they have offered natit'aal bounties, State bounties, county bounties, and city and village bounties, but tho men fail to oome f rward. They have enlisted men in Kngiaad, S'^taod and Ireland, but the supply ia not to tho do- mand. Massaohu'ttts has opened a now mine on the continent, and is importing the ruffians and outlaws of Germany by the ship load to fill her quota. They have sent a^rents in the rear of their armioa to recruit from runaway slaves; and in New Orleans have seiz^id th« negroes while celebrating the “anniversary of their emancipa tion,” by force, and placed them in the ranks, to shield tho bodies of the white-livered Yankees. They have .sent ships to the Chinese seas for Cool ies; and we expect next to hear that they have re opened the African slave trade in tbeir effort to “fill up their quotas.” But evade the draft, they cannot. The New Y'ork Times, truthful for once, says: “There is no improvement in the recruiting busi ness, and the people a:ay as well prepare them- Bolvcs to meet the stera realities of the draft.’' No, there is no avoiding the draft except by withdrawing from the cont«’st. The dr»ft jg sa certain as death and taxes. They admit themselves that Grant has bnt, since the let of May last, iu killed aad .pouaded, eighty five thou.«and men. By .'sickness, yri.«oa- ers and desertion fully f>ixty-five thousand moro —making a total of one hundred and forty ‘hcu- sand of tiiC best men in the Anay of the Poto mac, who«s |:laoeH it is proposed to fill with tho scum of the European citien, and the wrc“'^hed negro, who has beea kidnappod from a h.ippv home to bo made the victim of that most lai^er" ab’e of created beings, a miseegenating yankee.

FBOM PlfTE: -Jinict. Since the »ctive movcm' ^pf tbe past weeV, culminatipg in the engagei ' {. „f OuxiJay, mat ters have remained comps ’v^ly quiet on the line of the Weldon Railroac On Sunday night the Cor. .’.^rate force.s aban doned the ground which tl joined anti, held Sundjiy morning, aud f*'*’ ck much nearer the city, all of onr wounded 'ing been previ- ousl\^ brrughi off the field, ar he dosd buried. The position in front of c^e -p works to tho west of the railroad, on the ' ighaa road, wa3 also yiolde'l. The jankees wet covering the abpence of any stt .rrp ^Confederate forco in their immediate front, S'nu nt onoe. and for the fourth time, advanced their skirmifiherfl. During Monday they occupied tbe battlo-ficbl of Thursday, Friday and Sunday, threw thei- pick- ets forward to Johnson’s tarm, some di*>tance this side: and Davis's farm—tbe pceno of three bat tles, in each of which the yankees were dnren back—is now within their lines. Tbene^-, west ward across the Vaughan towards the ^'quirrel Level road, their lines are undisputed The yankees at once commenced to di" atid throw up eaithworks as fast as they advanced, and but for a thin skirt of pine woods at this ec ;.'e of Davis’s farm, their fortifications might be seen from the farthest limits of the city. The enemy have strone'ly fortified themselves in front, flank and rear. They have left no avail able point un.strcngthened—not everf from the point at which they firsit struck the railroad^and thence around lo the Jerusalem plank road. They have left nothing undone that skill could aeeom- p’ish, and the rest they intend to leave to their artillery. The object of the yankees, after they shall r rendered their present position secure, will be to raid upon our railrc»ad communications, and trrai- ually extend their lines in that direction. They would, if possible, invest tbe city of Petersbur; from the east, south and west, and compel it.s evacuation. The left of their line as they would have it sliould rest upon the river abovo, and the right upon the river below the city. It is s fire plan, and would probably half starve the poe-r of our city, if allowed to be successful, but Grant has to consult some one be'^ore he carries it out. It is our opinion that no further advance aremnd the city will be permitted. If Grant persi.sts he will find unexpected and powerful obstacles in his path, which will make him pause, if not re treat. We have had related to us many interesting incidents of the rcccnt battles, which, if wo bad time and spaeo, it would afford us much plepsure to publish. One we cannot retrain from men- tionin?. though we are as“urod that numerous others like it, but perhaps not so brillia'’t. occur red. During tbe progress of the battle of Friday aftcTuocn, two privates of the 12th Va. Infantry —Geo. H. May, Co. A, and Mile=t, Co. B, who happened to be in town, st.irted o^’t to join their regiments. They had their rifles w’th them, and on nearii?g the sccne of actios, wcro compelled to advance through a thick skirt of woods—but rather to one side of the combatants. They had gone eome distance into -he thickot, when to their surprise they observed a party of yankees advancing towards them. To retreat would be death, and to stand, would, to all ap pearances, b'3 immediate capture. The two nm ooQcealcd themselves behind trees, held a h.'>. ty consultati'u, and resolved to put a bold face up on the matter. Private May acted tbe spot-‘5- mn.n, and private Miles played the prrt of a ichfde reoinK^Tif. When tbo yankees bad arrived within short speaking disa*:ce, May stepped for ward and boHly dcmandr^d a stirrendfr. He baokcd big deniai'd with the statement that a regiment was in his rear, and another aroucd on their flank. Some of the men at once threw dowu tneir artr,?, but ♦he oxjmroarrttng showing some hesitation, was soon silenced by the threat of overpowering numbers beiug «h -rt- ly him. The whole party disarmed tLfn>- selves and marched in dcublo file to the .‘■r^ot where our bold privates were stationod, and }’»y placing himself at their bead and Miles at ♦be rear of the rolumn, carried them safely to a ptrongf’r guft'd.
