news has reached as this morning, except some
reports that the Rebels have evacuated Martins.

Cumberland valley of Pennsylvania for plunder.
In the absence of published fresh rumors there
Is less excitement here. The Baltimore and Ohio
Raliroad runs to Harper's Ferry regularly, and
the telegraph also works. Although the aspect

A FALSE MOVK.
The withdrawal of the pursuing column, eoin-
posed of the fith and 19th Corps, which staited
from Washington, and which had fallen luck in
the direction of Uockvllle and l'oolcsvillo, seems
to have been premature, and to have alforded tho
enemy an opportunity to couecntrate their forces
against Hunter, who still continued the pursuit
down the valley. It is reported that in an en
gagement tho Rebels forced him back to Har
per's Ferry with considerable loss. Tho state
ment, however, that two regiments of cavalry
and two batteries of artillery were captured is
said to ne erroneous.

This portion of our army, les than one-thir l

headlong charge of the war, without yielding an
inch, ac a little on one of tho thinks of Ueary's
JihiMon. where a gap in tho line oe-iii-red, and
hfre tho rnriny presicd thr.mirli, but was
rpeerllly cheeked The att ick was mndn tiy
nrnrly the whole of the Rebel army, and ita com
plete repulse forms the mint glorious chapter in
Sherman's present campaign. The following
are the details o( the tight :

and aliout fivo miles from Atlanta. Tho lltli
Corps was on the extreme rieht, near the mou'li
of Teach Tree creek. On the left of tho lith
(or in was the 2itth forps. On tho left of the lit
ter Newton's Division of the 4th Corpi.
A gup then occurred In our Hues for three
miles, which was covered on the south hank of
the creek by a curtain of pickets from Newton's
Dlvisl, n. On the. loft of the gap was concen
trated the rest of our army, several divisions oil
ginally on the right having been moved th to
early on the morning ot the 2ilth, with a view to
irenginrning tunc wmr, Instead of witirh tho

The enemy thus being, during the morning of
lucrum, iunsseii on our icir, oruers were issued
to New ton, Hooker, and Palmer, on the right, to
advance and close the gap of three miles, Nek

iuoi i s auu i aimer s corps were io close upon
Newton, and establish a new liuc as far as possi
ble in advanec of the trenches, which thoy had
constructed a half mile south of I'eurh Tree creek
iinineihatcly alter crossing. Accordingly, ah ut
1 1'. M., Newton deployed live regiments as skir
niirhirs, and pushed lorwatd handsomely, drty.
inauiimu9 ui inn etieiii.v 9 snarpsnooters U'jlore
tin ni, and scattering their skirmish reserves. By
3 I". M. he he had advanced three fourths of a
ndlc and carried a prominent ridgo iu his rront,
on which, after senuing fresh skirmish liues for
wnrc, he prtMCeded to establish bis division.
His troops nnslung knaps.u k, staeked arm,
and fell to erecting a rail barricade with a will.
Hooker now advain cd from ids trenches. Hut.
terlield's Division, now commanded by (ieiier.tl
Ward, on the left, deary in centre, and General
Wiliums on the right. 1'iiimer prepared to close
up on Hooker, whenevor the latter should estab
lish his now line. The country over which this
advance was progressing is partly rolling and
open, Intersected with d ttieult creeks, and p ir
tially covered with dense undergrowth. In the
advance, pii-oners were captured nt dllferent
points along tho line, who unanimously stated
that no considerable body of their troops was
nearer than a mile and a half. They were, be
yond doubt, sent out to be captured for this pur
pose. Not less than three-four. hs of the entire,
Hebcl army were concealed within musket-shot
ot our skirmishers.
At the amc time, at 3-10 P. M., and with the
celirily of lightning, the Rebel host poured forth
from their concealment, massed In enormous
columns, against Newton, coining on with skir
mish rs, and with ye'ls whose volume exceeded
those of any battle-shout I ever heard. New
ton's Division had hut half completed their barri
cade, and they barely had time to fall into lino
and seize thtir guns b. fore the entire il-mc,
column, composed of Walker's and Dale's Divi
sions 01 Hardee's Corps, wore within range. The
pickets guarding the interval between the light
and left of our army bixciy escaped cipturo by
plunging into I'eaeh Tree creek anil swimming
a -ro:S. The enemy had struck us at tho vital
spot, just where a victory for him might bo de
cisive. Newton had more wound to guard than
he could cover hy even a single lino.
For the first tew minutes everything hung
trembling in the scale. Newton's loft Hank was
exposed, and just covered his bridges across
Peach Tree creek. Hud it given away, tho
bridges would have been lost, and our whole

to the Chattahoochee river. The Rebel plan wan
todef-trovour forces on the right, utter which
their army would be strong enough to confront,
if rot defeat, the main body of our army on the
h it. Long lines of darkies, with paek-saddlos,
and other non-combatants, came pouring across
the bridges with sweat running oil' of them in
rivulets. Guards with fixed bayonets wero
phi. 'cd at tho bridges to collect whatever arm d
etragnlors might apiwar, but none camo. In
pile of the furious charge none of our troops
were stamjiedcd. The Rebel column poured
down on an open but rough scries of fields in
wards Newton's left, evidently aiming at his
At tho time the enemy first appeared we had
but two pieces of artillery In position, guarding
theAital poiut; but Captain Goodspeed, New
ton's chief of artillery, with splendid quicknoss,
brought np ten more guns, making in all twelve.
'Ihiy opened with canister, the gunuers working
wi h frantic energy. Four guns went into action
on Newton's right. Up lo the moment the guns
opi ne d, the Rebel columns bad swiftly advanced,
engnclng Newton's three reduced brigades at
tcirible odds. It was wonderful how fast the
enemy lost his grip when sixteen guns added
their blast to the storm of bullets from Newton's
infantry. Tbo dusky, grey columns slackened
their puce, and begau to w aver and lose, their
ran fill arrangement. In a few minutes they Iliad
ccrr.e to a stnnd-siill, iu partial confusion, and
lirirg heavily but wildly.
Color-bearer after color-liearer went down
Under the crash of our canister. Iu vain the
Hi Lei field olllcers rodo up and down tho lines
waving swords and exhorting the men not to
falter. In twenty minutes theassault h id totally
failed, and the enemy gave way, retiring in coa
lition to the woods from which they had
enierucd. For tho rest of tho afiernoou they
kept up a desultory fire, which was returned by
our artillery, but they did not venture to renew
the aitack. The Rebel General Stoveus, c itn
noinding a brigade in Walker's Division, was
killed. Ncnrly two hundred Hebcl dead ivuro
btiiied In Newton's front next morning. His
In i uilc did not yield an inch. General Ward's
Division, on Newton's right, was struck at tho
Juine moiui nt as New ion.
General Ward bad just baited his men a' the
fcotol a hill for a bricl rest, alter his skirmishers
had made way to the crest. Word eatno back to him
tlmt the cm my was charging over the open field
in his fi opt iu immense force. Without a til's
mt m's hesitation, Ward ordered his division to
nuet the enemy with a counter-charge; his men
moved up the hill in splendid order an 1 when
ihiy gained the crest they wero so close to tho
Ki I, els that several of tho hostilo regiments be
came intermingled. At such points the Rebels
seemed addled by Ward's bold ioui, and were
captured without difficulty. On other portions of
the line, lighting at close iuarters continued for
half an hour, but each successive line of Robcls
was pressed back by the indubitable valor of
Ward's men. At the end of that time tho Rebels
fell buck into a dense forest in their rear, com
pletely whipped to far as General Ward's Division
General Ward's trophies are seven Rebel battle-Hags
and three hundred prisoners, Including
many of the enemy's wounded left on the held.
Among bis prisoner are representatives of si x
teen regiments, and be no doubt fought don id
that number. Ward sent all of his availabl
aitillery to protect Newton's Hank, and his splen
did triumph was achieved with mu-kcts alone.
The charge swept along to the right, striking
(ieary's Division tbo next after Wood's. Goury
had advanced half a mile from tbo trenches he
occupied in the morning, and had just marched
bis troops to the top of a ridge, when the Helstd
columns were thrown on him with terrible vio
lence. The 33d New Jersey, which was thrown
out lo fortify a hill in advance of ths main line,
lost over half its numlier in ihe first few minutes
of the charge. The most of Geary's lines were
through a dense wood, and his right Hank was
exposed by an Interval of twoorlhrco hundred
j ards, which Williams' Division was endeavor
ing to close.
When the enemy came on, General lllnos
Brigade, onJGcary's right, was speedily enveloied
on ihe right and rear, aud tell back, after a stout
fight, to (he trenches it occupied in the morning,
where it was reformed. Portions of Colonel
Ireland's brigade In the centre were socnliladod
ard driveu back, by turning ono of his batte
ries fiom the front to the right, General Geary
succeeded in reforming bn shattered line, where
It stood, aud not another loot did it yield, rolling
buck charge after charge. From four o'clock till
lone alter dark, the Rebels endeavored to force
their way through the f ap they had oponed, hut
the pluck of onr lads triumphed. (Jeiry held
the hill at the end as at the beginning of the
a stult. That portion of his lino th it fell ba k
was re-formed, and ina'iontiin hour went back
Into action on (General Williams' right.
The tremendous It-i bcl ass inltspent Its fury on

half a mile when tho Itchels wcit np-m It. The
shock w. is met w ithout flinching. Tho division
rcli sfd to give an inch, and though the enemy
made three s vi rail charges on it lie fore nii'hlfail
it repulsed them all without wavering, though In
doing fo it sustained heavier ln-s than anv other
division on the right. The lighting on this part
of our line wns In dense woods.
The nltack grazed tl.o left of Palmer's Corps,

front of Ocnrviiiid Williams, c iirying oil many
of their dead and wounded, and falling back to
their heavy works about a mile distant, lu front
of Ward and New ton, h ? was compelled to leave

Judging from ercat pis lirapcd np there, the

The statement that our troops were hi fortifica
