A SioxmcANT I.ttrr.-.a from C bv. Shkr-
Van i rowtc in lhl X-;i'i'iWns. A lot ter
from Geneird Sherman was reo ive l hero
t o-day, in which he says that the war now
' being over, he expected to be at homo in
a few days. Ho refers to tlio poae3 oan
ferenco with Johnson and states that
mhen the facts are ofilcially j romulgated,
his course will be sustained by tho coun
try. The parly who received the letter,
'beina familiar wiih Sherman's policy, as
instiucted by the lalo rrosidenl Lincoln,
.Asserts that the agreement with Jobn.-ton
was only that which Mr Lincoln furi.hu l
.owed to General Sherman at the meeting
at City point. Tho hasty and gratuitous
conduct of Ilalleek ni.d Stanton inccn
fluring Shciuian, it is predicted, will react
upon theso gpntlonian with tenfold
Beverity. Mrs. General Sherman is here,
and will remain in Cincinnati until tho
arrival of her husband. Ciminnati Gu-.cit,;

The 1st Wisconsin belongs lo Lngrango's
brigade, McCook's division and had boon
sent duo east by General Croxton via
Dublin. Colonel Mintz had distributed
his command all along the south bank of
tho Ocmulgeo and Altamaha. This ac
counts for tho collision between parts of
the First and Second divisions, anel shows
lho zeal of the command in pursuit. I
have directed increased vigilanca on the
part of the command in lho hopa of catch
ing tho other assassins. Our dispositions
are good, and so far nono of the robol
chiefs have been ablo to gel through.

Hon. Ii. M- Stanton, Secretary of War:
Lt. Colonel Marden, commanding 1st
Wisconsin, has just arrived at Irwinsville.
IIo struck Davis' trail at Dublin, Lau
rens county, on the evening of the 7th,
and followed him closely night and day
thruogh the pino wilderness of Alligator
Creek and Green Swamp, via Cumber
landville to Irwinsville. At Cumbcrland
vi He, Colonel Harden met Colonel Prit
chard with lot) picked men and horses of
tlio 4th Michigan. Harden followed
the trad directly south, while IVitchard
having freih horsos, pushed down tho Oc
mulgeo towards Hopewell, and thence by
House creok lo Irwinville, arriving there
at midnight of the Oth. Jelf. Davis had
not arrived. From citiions Fritchard
learned that his party were encamped
two miles from town. He mado his dis
positions and surrounded the camp bo
foro day. Harden had encamped at 6 V.
M., within two miles, as he al'terwards
learned from Davis.
The trail being too indistinct to follow,
be ptishod on at 3 A. M., and bad gone
but little more than one mile when hi
advance wore u?d upon by men of the
Ith Michigan. A fight ensued both par
lies exhibiting the greatest determination.
Fifteen minutes elapsed bafore the mis
take was discovered. Tho firing ia thi
skirmish was the first warning Pavis rc
cedved. The captors report lhat ho hast
