WHY ATLANTA IS NOT AS8 1 1 LTI1II.
4 You will say, perhaps, .why not assault so con
temptible a foe and put him out of his misery at
once ? The art of war here is no lonior a chance
matter, lloth armies convey a full supply of
intrenching tools, and no forces on either side
ever rest till they have before them a complete
line of works siroiig inoiiKb. to resist tho heaviest
field ordnance, with obstructions in tho front in
the way of abjtls, paliaados, and Intrenchments,
that puts the matter of an assault quite out of the
question. I think tho battle of C'hleluiiuiiosM on
tke left taught both armies the value of thenc
works. No n-siult by either side in this cam
paign dob Dconmrcvs-ful. It would surprise you
to see how quickly and willingly these men eon
stroet their works. None appreciate, their vulito
IMPORTANCE Ol- THF. CAMPAIGN.
"We are losing somo good olllecrs and, of
c onrse, seme men; but I wish all could under
stand how vitally this campaign is striking tho
Kebellion. Did you read Governor Jiroivn's pro
clamation calling out the militia and detailed
men i There was no blossoming palmetto atw.u
that; but a plain and open groan, showing clearly
how deep the travel of oar army is moving dovru
npon the tender places of the Confederacy.
"Yon know, or eourso, tint Johnston has been
relieved by flood, n man of just half his ability.
Gossip has it that his (iovornmt a', was dissatisfied
with bis continued retreating, and sought a man
who believed their army Could check us. llurdec
in Mid to have been of '.lohnston's opinion ; that
Ibo endeavor to hold A'lanta would be tho de
struction of the army. Hood was then proffered
the command pud accepted the task.
"He has commenced well : hat already assaulted,
us three times, we being behind our works, and
losing iu all nino thousand live hundred, while
they uro known to have lost twen'y thou-and.
"1 have never believed that the abovo was tho
t.tie reason fjr tho change, hut that Johnston was
taken east to assist in planting a column in Penn

"The greatest victory for them greater than
fifty Manassasos, and tho only one that can give
Cam a particle of hirpc will be to defeat tho

can by any possibility keep their army in the

little before election plaro a strong uruir upon

MEWS FROM ftHEKMAVK AKXT TO
Tim u rn.
From nrniy letters, dated 10th and Uth, we
itioic as follows : The railroad south Is within a
short distance of the lino gained by General
Hascall on tho f'th. The whistle and movomont
of the trains can bo distinctly heard. The road
is now nearly within our roach, and when desira
ble can be controlled. What tho movement of
the army has resulted in, other than the near
gra-p we now have on this road, is uuimiortant.
Movements arc, however, in progress which, in
tbelr own good time, will bring forth the desired
results. Tho damage d.me the railroad by Gene
ral McCook has been repaired, and trains now
run regularly. Deserters, however, report a
scarcity of food, which cannot be immediately
During the operations on the extreme right,
uainly confined to General Hascall, his command
has done hard work, laboring night and day. Tho
recent impetuous assuulta on our Hanks have led
our commanders to the exercise of extreme
caution, and whenever a point of importance is
gained it is at once fortitied. In this manner this
division has built, during the last live days, nine
tine of uurk: Tfieso lines are each nearly half
a mile iu length ; and, when this is known, the
amount of labor done during these hot, sultry
August days may bo imr.gmtd. This, it must bo
remembered, is iu addition to the usual dutios,
picket, guurding, and the thousand and one other
ilntie s tor which u soldier is accountable.
Tho country wo mo operating iu is south of
Atlanta, and near Y.wl I'oint, and is more open
and fertile than any we have fou;:ht for sinco the
croffcing of the Ktowah. J'.elore us now, ns far
as the eye can reach, arc fertile valleys, with oc

It will not do to rely too contidontly upon the
tfatemeiits which are frequently inadu eon i rn
ing Hehcl losses In the recent battles. The Mjru-phis-Atlantsi
jIjim-hI having a ease to tuako out
against Hood, puts it at 22,'siO since J hnsio:i
was superseded. This, probably, is the outside
limit, lbit ns these '.'J.OoD wire all from th
veteran Kebcl triips, and as we all know
from l'.clicl citi- i.il documents, found alt r
wo crossed the Chattahoochee, that their
veteran fore w.n only forty-six thou
sand strong previous to the battle of
l'cacli Tree Creek, it follows that unless recently
reinforced, the vet. i in Kebcl fore s opp s 1 to
n amount to only twcnty.four thousand m n.
That such a lon e, even ndiui ting that it were
backed up by forty thousand militia m -n, co il 1
for a single week wittntand tho utuieks of our
magnilicent army, is preposterous. Yet they
have withstood us ; and extend our lines a- we
may, we find them every hero confronting us.
The conclusion is almost Irresistible tna the
llebel army has been reinforced, and that the
conditions upon which was piedi 'ti-il tiie speed
fall of Atlanta, utter the battle of tho 1J nit., are
essentially i hanged.

league having in charge tho ro' iultins for the
Sixth I'nion League Kesiment, o.vln-. to tho
necessary delay in receivlm? the city b unity, has
adopted a plan by which tlie volunteer can secure
Ids money lit once. A recruit, when ho Is mus
icied into the service, receives a crrtiticnto of th
nmstcr, which is then taken to a l'rovost Mar
shal, where the man is credited to the city and
Ward he may designate. Next the eertilieate is
laid before the Doiinty Fund Commissioners at
the first niieting of tiic Board after the certili
ciitc is tiled.
The Board meets on Tuesday, Thui-sday, and
tSuturdiiy attcrnooiis, and each case is carefully
exiimiued, as the Couiniissioncrs ure required to
oi count for the proper uisposition of the money
appropiiatcd for the purpose of avoiding the
dia'.t Alter the eertilieate is found to be cor
rect, the warrant is ordered to be drawn, uud tho
party can secure the money the day utter the
meeting of the Hoard. The Committee of the
I ition League give the recruit the money as soon
lis the muster is complete, and then take his
powircf attorney aud draw the money utter the
regular course iiidicu:cd above has been gone
If a syttem like this should be adopted by some
other Uisoclulion with reference to recruits for
the navy, il would taciliuite the filling of the
quota. It would uiso destroy the business of the
brokers, who, for the most part, are interested
lu tilling the quotas of other States aud counties.

aud Major Mooro will succeed in nlliiig the live.

I'ennsylvnt.ia Volunteers dining the war of 1812.
Ho was a member of the well-known Chew
f irmly, on whose estate tlie battle of Gcrmantown
was fought in the licvoiutiomiry war. During
tho administrations of General Jacksonan l M ir
tin Van Huron, Colonel Chew was a pro
minent Democratic leider. He was at one
time, wc believe, Secretary of Legation to the
Court of St. Jamas. Declining health has for
somo vcars prcvente 1 the prosecution ol his pro
fession. His peronal appearim" ' w is familiar
to almost every 1'hlia lelphi in. In e.irly iile he
was remarkably handsoino and ho ret -lined
truces of physical lieauty until bis death.
Strangers frequently p:nsed on Chesnut street
to inquire the name of that stately and stylish

Ordinarily at law no person is" bound to give a

ment of evidence useful only to the person to
whom it Is rriven. If ho needs a ro'clpt ills
necessary for him to furnish the stamp, or to
-tamp tho receipt, if required, before il Is signed.
The person iv ho receives tho money ii not obliged
lo give a receipt iiu'csn the other party furnishes
the proper stamp.
If .t person gives a re. cipt w dh nit requiring
that the, party to whom it is given shall furnish
the stamp, the milker of tho receipt mnst himself

to stmip it before he delivers it, In is liable to
