Congress, tif an amcmhoeut to tlie Con

monstrate that their rejoicings are, to sav

The various reports that have been sent
to the Noith during the past week
j Sherman's progress towards Charleston,
are all huse. Sherman has not yet cross
ed the Combahee. The Confederates
still hold V.alkehatchie. The Federal
troops have made various demonstrations
on the Confederate troops defending the
bridges over the Combahee, but have
been uniformly defeated. On last Tues
day the Confederates still held their posi
tions cm the Comh;ihce. It is not Sher
man's intention to attack Charleston vet.
He is moving in a different direction ;
towards Augusta or Hranehville. 0i
IWonday last his advance occupied l!o
be!tsiile, forty-live miles north of Sa
vannah and about live miles from the
Savannah river. Another force is en-can.p.-d
some distance cast of Pob.-rts-ii!e,
towards the upper waters f the Big
S.'.'knhalchie, which flows into the Com
bahee. It threatens I h a:;ch ille. G.-n.
Hardee commands the Confederates in
that region at present, but as Gen. I't-b't
K. Ix-e was unanimously confirmed as
Commander-in-Chief of the Confederate
armies by tlie Senate at Kichmond on
Wednesday last, he will hereafter direct
the movements of the troops opposed to
Sherman. Gen- ral Uoauregard is to com
