At lhe time Gem ral Sherman was making tils famous r. ill in Mi.-sissippi. Major-Gcncral L. li. lioussiau, comnnuiding the district of Nashvilie, pioposed 10 (iencial On-nt a conceited iuom m lit i'iuhi Decatur upon Selma, AI ibuina. Ho had obtained a great deal of v-vluaM" lul'or.outio.i icgitrding the louto and tho vulnerability of Sclmn, and was anxious to make tlio movement. Hut us the raid of Genera) Micrmun was iusti- tuttd only lor the purpose of so thoron 'lily de stroy irg ti e MistdsHippi railroads that no exten sive Ion e of llebel iniantry couhl operate against the points on tho Mississippi river, which u was ir,t titled to weaken iu order to prosecute the preterit campaign, and did not contemplate the occupation of Selma, General llousscau's propj sitit u was declined. Ijitely, however, General Sherman, foe-xuning desirous of the dt struct on of the railroad bo tweeu Mt ntgoiiiery, Ala., and Columbus, Oa., ordciid General Rousseau, June ;i, to make (reparations for a raid upon the road between the points named ; and this raid, as ordered, is the one upon which General Housscau departed last evening. 1 he t ole purpose or the raid Is. as bt foie staled, the destruction of the railroad. 1 his is to fie done so eilectually as to cut off for the rest of the w ar the line bv which the Rebels get their snppliosof beef, Ac. Orders were given and preparations made for the destruction of the rails I y twisting and burning them with the tics, bnr)gs, water tanks, Ac; tho blowing up of culverts, locomotives, machine and Oovorninont shops, arsenals, fVc. orders were ulso given for the destruction of Opt-liku, the point at which the C lumbus road diverges from the Atlanta, West 1'olnt, and Mont gomiry road. Hy the complete destruction of this point General Sherman hopes to cut off Montgomery fiom comuiunlratiou by both routes with the east. General Uoussean boors to Irretrievably de stroy Ibe railroads Irom Montgomery to Colum bus and V est Tolnt, and if practicable, tho gteatcr part of the Rvbel government property iti .Montgomery, commons, luskegee, and tue principal points along his route. jtav ng completed uu nis preparations, nna having on the 4th instant received the final orders to moe, General Rousseau and stall left head quartets In this city on ihcHtli. TIIK 1-AiniNO SL'KNKS. The party left with tbe idea that they might bind in a Southern prison, but congratulated thmselves that Grant had cut otf tlio route to Libby. With this view of a arisou lu their minds, tbe party mude nil preparations for a Southern residmcc, and quite an amusing scene was wit nessed at headquurters in tbe closing and baluue Ingot accounts, writing farewell letl.-rs and giv ing directions for the disposition of private proptrtv. iDe I'rovost Mtirsnai, sia.ior tugney, wun his nsnal gt neroslty, gavo rach of tho o't'nrs a couple of thous-itid doliurs in Itetiol money not fat- timile, but the g-nnlno itriicle which Is said to be nearly as vuluuble as the imitation, though 1 ot equalling it inengravingand priutiug. 1MB roltl'K INDKtt 01;M:KAI. aOt'SSKAIt. General Sherniun's order for tho ruld restricted the force 10 about two thousand five hundred. The men arc all veterans, recruits of the regi- inots hav Ing been left Itehind. General Hons erau and Colonel llsrrlson left very confident of success. Hotb am fighting, energetic men. and if sueee'i is possible they will accsmnlisli the task laid out for them. 1 bo route to lie taken hy General Houssian is one that bus never been followed bcretolore during tbe war, though it is nearly Identical with tho "truce pursued bv General .lacksou In Ibe war against the Creek Indians. The first point of any importance on the routo is Htonutsville, the next Asiivllle. A few miles bjyoud Ashrllle is the Coosa 1 iver. General Sherman first directed Rousseau to make the crossing at Ten Islands, but subse quently this was changed so as to allow him to cios at the nearest lord, lie Is thou to move rapidly up the Talladega aud the nearest bralgo or ford over the Tallupomu river. The route betwt i n these two streams is to be very rapidly pursued, and tbe bridges are to be completely destroyed. Tbe passage ( f tho Tallapoosa will, in all pro bability, lie made nt I ehois-ke. and will brine the force Into Datlcvilie. Mountain roads will curry it to the r.iilrotd at couveniont p nuts, when Ibe work ot destruction will fx: bettuii Tin re are eight bridges on the railr.sid beteeu Mont::ouierv ami Opeliku, llio most Important I emg over Ouklitskce, i npiu, lliitebio, Caleebee, and I fotki e re l.s. li also cros-es ihtcc lirunclus of the latter striiiu, ond, ns it follows lhe course of Soueha- haicl.ee en ek.it Is more than prol.aVe that Diimhi rs of mliiiels and br'dges are to 00 found In the vallty.

Near ( oliin. bus, on the other routo, are llnec bridges over the ctuinpkii creek and onj over Mill creek. Tin: itErriiN koitk. Returning aitcr the destruction of these rotids, Koutoi au is to move up the west sideol the Chat tahoochee, if the opportunity oilers, and join General bhennun between Marietta and the Chat tahoochee river. If this route is threatened by tho enemy, Rousseau is to make straight for I'en tacola, and take vessels to New Orleans and thence to Nashville again. THE IMl'OHTAN T POINT. In bis orders General Micimaii alludes to Montgomery, Opeliku, ond Columbus, as being the impoitunt points ; but I do not know that in sti uctions were given him to attack cither Mont gomery or Columbns. Orders wi re issued for the destruction of 0K lika. Sclma is alluded to in the orders as a point of secondary importance. OIM'-IIAI. IlOl SSKAIl'H AH KI VA I. AT PKCATl It. Nashmi.lk, July lit.
