THE EVENING STAR W, D. WALLACH, Editor and Preprieter. WASHINGTON CITY: FRIDAY JULY 33, 1864. VREADING MATTER ON EVERY PAGE. SEE OUTSIDE FOR INTERESTING TELE GRAPHIC AND OTHER MATTER. FROM ATLANTA. Advices from Gen. Sherman, received to day, coyer operations down to last night. The work of in resting the city U fast going on. There was some hard fighting yesterday, resulting in a repulse of the enemy in his ef forts to dislodge our troops. Gen. Palmer advanced his line toa more ad vantageous position. Our loss during the day wa? small. According to report, the rebels have been in dustriously fortifying Atlanta, first by an ex tensive line of rifle pits nine miles in length, covering an interior line of fortifications pro tected by abattjs, and interlaced with an inner series of rifle pits. The position of the city is, however, not favorable for defense, and it is evident that the rebels do not countupon being able to hold it by the aid of its defensive woiks. P. S. We learn, since writing the above, that Sherman has torn up some five miles of the railroa d between Atlanta and Decatnr, and, on one portion of his lines, holds a position over looking Atlanta, and from which it can be shelled, if necessary. There was considerable fightirg going on on Wednesday, as well as yes.erday. we learn, resulting advantageously to us. Everything is progressing most favora bly to us, according to all reports from that quarter. A DESTRUCTIVE BLOW. We understand that Garrard's cavalry de stroyed at Rossville,Georgia, woollen factories which turned out thirty thousand yards, and cotton factories making three hundred thou sand yards of cloth monthly, besides a paper and a starch mill and other factories. This is a heavy blow to the resources of the rebellion. Thete rebel cloth mills thus destroyed bySher. man's army have been employed and run on r?bol government account, and have been a leading source of supply for the rebel army. THE REPORTED FIGHT AT LBE8BURG. No confirmation of the reported fight at Lees burg has been received here. If a fight had taken place yesterday at Leesburg, which is in the Department of Washington, it would doubtless be known at Gen. Auger's head quarters by this time, but no information of the sort has reached tnere. NAVAL CAPTURES. The Navy Department has received informa tion of the following captures: On the loth instant, the 6loop Hope, of Nas sau, N. P., loaded with nineteen bales of cot. ton and nine boxes of tobacco, from Savannah, was captured by the V. S. steamer Ladond while attempting to run out of Sapelo. The cargo of the Hope has been sent to Philadel phia tor adjudication. On the night of the 20th of June, the sloop Mary, of Nassau, N. P., was captured by the tT. s! steamer Norfolk Packet, off Mosquito Inlet, Fla. The Mary had on board nine bales cf cotton and one passenger named M. J. Buckner, of Savannah, Ga., who has frequent ly run the blockade. The vessel was sent to Port Royal station, where she sank in Horse Island Creek. INTERNAL REVENUE BUREAU. Commissioner Lewis has gone to his home In Pennsylvania on a short visit. During his absence Mr. HoHins, the able Deputy Com missioner, will run the Internal Revenue machine. THB PnKMDKNT'B FKBLING FOR THB SOL tmbrk.?During the time that the rebels were engaged in their bombardment of Fort Stevens, Mr. Lincoln happened to pass a short time within the walls of that fortification. A shot from the enemy passed into the fort, and, stri king seme projection, glanced off, the ball en tering the leg of a soldier. Mr. Lincoln cast his eye first toward the point of impingement and iur:i at iue sunerillg soiuiei, nia eiciiuiutj, while a happy smile irradiated his features, *' That was a good carom!" The unfeeling re mark was heard by some soldiers standing near, and produced, as might naturally be ex pected, considerable indignation.?.V<io Yuri: World. There was no " bombardment" oi Fort Ste vens, and no incident there to serve even as a foundation for tLe World's transparent lie. Why cannot these copperhead papers maintain some consistency in their villiflcation of the President.' While the New York World, as above, describes him as in the midst of the fight making cold-blooded jokes at the expense of the wounded, the New York News insists that he was concealed in abject terror on board a gunboat in the river dnring the visit of the Confederates here ! We advise the3e copper nead journalists to compare notes betore pub lishing their manufactured "incidents" abu sive of the President. ?9"The publication of the new literary paper, Thr Jbninrt Table, has been discontinued in con sequence of the exigencies of the times, so on erous on publishers generally. KT The price paid in New York yesterday for three year substitutes was fcSU'J, and for one-j ear substitutes P3C0. Tub Fortikicatioks op atlanta.-The correspondent of the Cincinnati Gazette, writ ing from the banks of the Chattrhoochee, speaks thus of the fortifications of Atlanta: ??Ascending a high hill which overlooked the river, 1 got a splendid view of the doomed city of Atlanta, with its net-work of defences. Frcm the banks of the river all the way up to the city there is a suc cession of earthworks. It would be impossible to conceive of a more strongly fortified place. Not far from the banks of the liver 1 noticed a fort, which i3 said to have some twenty siege gnns. In regard to the railroad bridge, in my former letter, I stated that we held it. I was misinformed? we do not hold it, but the rebels have not de stroyed it. The cars run up as far as our lines and scream victory into the ears of the rebels on the other side of the river. Dibai poibtbd.?The Richmond Enquirer of the Ulth Inst., states that whether the capture of Washington was or was not the object of the late raid, its fail was most anxiously ex pected until late news brought the knowledge of the fact that the rebels had withdrawn from the front of the Federal Capital. The Enquirer consoles itself with the scare created aid say* the accidental arrival of "C&nby's corps from New Orleans'' saved the city. It acknowledges that the raid comprised "forty edd thousand men," and much yet was hoped from it in aid of the rebel cause. The hope is tviiuuaieij uupeued by the retreit of the raiders, and the recapture of a large portion of their plander by Gen. Crook at Snicker's Gap.

A Letter from the President? His Views of I the Restoration of Peace?How the Cor respondence Originated. : Burraxo, July 21.?The correspondence with the rebel agents shows that Messrs. Clay, Hol comb, and Sanders asked, on the 12th, of Hor sce Oreeley, the protection of the President or the Secretary of War to rlsit Washington. Mr. Greeley, in reply of the 18th, understanding that they were bearers of a proposition from. I Richmond looking to peace, tendered a sale conduct of the President. They replied they were net accredited with such proposition, but were in confidential em ploy of their Government, and felt authorised | to declare, if the circumstances disclosed in this correspondence were communicated at Rich mond, they or other gentlemen would be vested . with full power. They asked a safe conduct to Washington, and thence to Richmond. Mr. Greeley answered that that state ef tacts being materially different from that understood to exist by the President, it was advisable for him I to communicate by telegraph with him and ob j tain instructions. After some further correspondence in rela | tion to Greeley's communication with Presi dent Lincoln, the following was received from . the latter: Exbctttivb Mawsiow, ) I Wabhikotow, July 18,1864. t j lo whom it may concern: Any proposition which embraces the restor | ation of peace, the Integrity of the whole Union, and the abandonment of slavery, and which comes by and with authority that can control the armies now at war against the United States, will be received and considered by the Executive Government of the United States, and will be met by liberal terms on other substantial and collateral points; and the bearer or bearers thereof shall have safe conduct both ways. Abraham Lincoln. To Hon. Her act Greeley. Major Hay, on the 20th, in a note, asks Hol comb and others if they have any communica tion to send to Washington by him. Holcomb replies on the 21st, regretting he has been de layed by any expectation of an answer to his communication delivered to the President of the United States, adding that the communis cation was accepted as a response to the letter of Clay and Holcomb to Mr. Greeley, and to that gentleman has an answer been trans mitted. The letter to Mr.Greeley, after alluding to the tender ef a safe conduct to Washington on the hypothesis that we were duly accredited lrom Richmond as bearers of propositions looking to the establishment of peace, says this assertion was accepted as evidence of an unexpected but most gratifying change in the policy of the President?a change which we felt authorized to hope might terminate in the conclusion of a peace mutually just, hon orable and advantageous to the North and the South. Exacting no condition but that we should be duly accredited from Richmond as bearers of a proposition looking to the establishment of peace, thus proffering a basis for conference as comprehensive as we could desire, it seemed to us that the President opened a door that had previously been closed against the Confed erate States for full interchange of sentiments, free discussion of conflicting opinions, and un trammelled effort to remove all causes of con troversy bv liberal negotiations. We indeed could not claim the benefit of safe conduct, which had been extended to us in a character we had no right to assume, and had never affected to possess, but the uniform declarations of our Executive and Congress, and their thrice-repeated and as often repulsed attempts to open negotiations, furnish suffi cient pledge that this conciliatory manifesta tion on the part of the President of the United States would be met by then* in a temper of equal magnanimity. We had, therefore, no hesitation in declaring, that if this correspon dence was communicated to the President of the Confederate States, he would promptly em brace the opportunity presented for seeking a peaceful solution of this unhappy strife. We foe I fftnBHoni ih?t you iuiul euaI6 onr proioiuiu regTet that the spirit which dictated the first step towards peace had not continued to ani mate the counsels of your President. Had the representatives of the two Governments met to consider this question, the most momentous ever submitted to human statesmanship, in a temper of becoming moderation and ecjuitv, followed as their deliberations would have been by prayers and benedictions of every patriot and Christian on the habitable globe, who is there so bold as to pronounce that this frightful waste of individual happiness and public prosperity which is daily saddening the universal heart might not have been termi nated, or, if the desolation and carnage of war must still be endured through weary years of blood and suffering, that there might not at least have been infused Into its conduct some thing more ot the spirit which softens and par tially redeems its brutality! Instead of the safe conduct which we solici ted, and which your first letter gave us every reason to suppose woula be extended for the purpose of initiating negotiations in which neither Government would compromise its rigbtsor its dignity, a document is presented which provokes as much indignation as sur prise. It bears no feature of resemblance to that which was originally offered, and is unlike any paper which ever before emanated from the constitutional Executive of a free people. Addressed to whom it may concern, it pre cludes negotiations and proscribes in advance the terms and conditions of peace. It returns to the original policy of no bar gaining, no negotiations, no truces with rebels, except to bury their dead, until every man shall have laid down his arms, submitted to the Government, and sued for mercy. What may be the explanation of this sudden and en tire change in the views of the President; of this rude withdrawal of a courteous overture for negotiation at the moment it was likely to be accepted; of this emphatic recall of words of peace just uttered, and fresh blasts of war to the bitter end, we leave for the speculation of those who have the means or inclination to penetrate the mysteries of his cabinet; or to fathom the caprice of his imperial will. It is enough for us to say that we have no use whatever for the paper which has b^en placed in our hands. We could not transmit it to the President of the Confederate States without offering him an indignity, dishonoring ourselves, and incurring the well-merited scorn of our countrymen. Whilst an ardent desire for peace pervades the people of the Confederate States, we rejoice to say there are few, if any, among them who would purchase it at the expense of liberty,- honor and self respect If there be any military autocrat at the North who is entitled to proffer the conditions of this manilesto, there is none in the South author ized to entertain them Those who control our armies are servants of the people, not their masters, and they have no more an inclina tion than they have a right to subvert social institutions of sovereign States, to overthrow their established constitutions, and to barter away their priceless heritage of self-govern ment. _.*^"The Emperor of Russia has presented \ ale College with a fac simile copy of the cel ebrated Greek manuscript of the Holy Bible found in 1659 at the convent of St. Catharine, on Mount Sinai, by Dr. Tischendorf.
