Louisville, July 22.?Yesterday's National Union states that on Monday morning Docatar, Oa., was occupied by onr forctw; thus cutting off all rebel communications with South Caro lina, by way of Macon. Deserters and stragglers have been coming Into our lines since we crossed the Chut tohoccheo in gr?at numbers. They repre sent tbat all hope of saying Atlanta has disap peared. Atlanta Captured. New York, July 22.?A special dispatch to the Herald from Nashville to day has the fol lowing : The success of Sherman's movements in cutting the eastern and southern communi cation with Atlanta, leads to tue belief tbat the r?bels had been toiled in th<?ir attempt to escape, and that their operations at that place have already been narrowed down to a Eieffe. Two large cavalry forces some time since left the army at different points, and have doubtless ere this cut the Mucon and Colum bus railroads in such a manner that, if the ereroy succeed in leaving the city to go away, it must be at a loss of mnch valuable pro perty. [ANOTHER DISPATCH.] New York, July 22.?Dispatches to pri vate parties state that Atlanta was this morn ing occupied by Sherman's forces, and that General Thomas' headquarters are in the city. This statement is credited in official circles, and we think that no doubt ieed be enter tained in regard to it. Surgeon Clendinin, medical director at the post here, is in receipt of a dispatch which states tbat our losses in the battle or Decatur were very light. The engagement at that place * as not general. Telegraphic Communication with the Army. Office Associated Press, New York, Jnly 22.?The Western Union Telegraph Com pany is in communication with Sherman's headquarters to-day.

Cap'ain Tur ner, commanding the post, refused to surren der, and told his men to eicape. A fight ensued, in which Captain Turner was killed. Most ol the militia escaped, and have arrived here. General Fink's appeal is being promptly re sponded to, and men are sent Into the field at once. One thousand men, under Gen. Bi-n Loan, will soon be here from Andrew county. Lbavbkworth, July 22.? A despatch this morning from Col. Ford, at Liberty, Mo., says the people in the country north and east of that place are joining the rebel Thernton. and that his force is increasing rapidly. Col. Ford has nis troops well in hand, bnt bis force is too small to effect much, and reinforcemen s are asked for. Arms have been sent from here to St. Joseph and Kansas City for arming the loyal men called out by Gen. Fisk. A later despatch from Col. Ford states that Thornton, with 2,000 men, is moving north, probably with the intention of striking the rail road. Plfcttsfourg and Maroon were la th**lr j/u-ecsciUll loot UI&IaC. Col lolt LUorkj at four this p. m. in pursuit General Curtis has several armed boats pa troling the Missouri river to prevent the rebels crossing. Pickler and Banks are reported to have 10,000 men in Southwest Missouri, threatening Fort Scott and our southern communication. It is believed that 50,000 of Price's men are now in Missouri. These will ho joined by Thornton's guerrillas and the Pawpaws, and will make a formidable force. A portion of our State militia is to be called out, and troops are now being concentrated for co-operation. General Blunt is here waiting orders.

FROM CALIFORNIA AND THE SAND WICH ISLANDS. San Francisco, J uly 20.?Sandwich Islands adviceB to June 20, say that a majority of the members elect to the Constitutional Conven tion are opposed to changes in the Govern ment. Liberal contribntlons are being made to the Sanitary Commission. The Nevada Constitutional Convention has rejected the proposition to aid the Pacific Railroad, and adopted one providing for tax ing the products of the mines. The confession of one of the recently arrest ed stage robbers, implicated some prominent men, and leads to the suspicion of Secession designs.

W# published yesterday a very fall account of a mysterious ?? peace conference" at Nrig ar i Falls. As Mr. Greeley, of tne New York Tribune, seems to bave bad seme connection with It, tbe following remarks of that paper will be interesting: [From the New York Tribnne.] The telegraphic stories concerning p^acecon ferences at Niagara 1- alls have a slander foun dation in fact bat roost ot the details are very wide of the trnth. The editor of tbia paper has tak? n part in, and been privy to, no further or other negotiations than were fully authorize* and more than authorized but these related solely In bringing the antagonists face to face in amicable rather than belligerent attl ude, wi'h a view to tbe initiation of an earnest ef fort for peace, to be prosecuted at Washing ton. Tbe movement has h:td no immediate success. Of course all reports that the writer baa been engaged in proposing or receiving or discuss ii g hypothetical teims or bases of peace, whether with accredited agents of tbe Rich mond autliorltes or others, are utterly mista ken. He has never had tbe slightest authori zation to do anything of tbe sort: and be is quite aware of those provisions of law which relate to volunteer negotiations with public enemies. Those provisions he heartily ap proves, and Is nowise inclined to violate. More than this he does not as yet feel at liberty to state, thongh be soon may be All 'bat he can now add is bis general inference that the paci flcatlcn of our country is neither so difficult nor so distant as seems to be generally sup posed. TUB RBPPOHflB OF CLAY AJtD nOLCOMHB. The final response of Messrs. Clay and Hoi combe to Mr. Greeley was given entire yester dav, with the exception of tbe following con cluding paragraph: This correspondence wll! not, however, we trust, prove entirely barren of good results. If there is any citizen of the Confederate States who has clung to tbe hope that peace was pos sible with this administration of tbe Federal Government, it will strip irom his eves the last film ot such a delusion. Or, if there be any whose hearts bave grown faint under the suf rering and agony of this bloody struggle, it will Inspire th< in with fresh energy to endure and brave whatever may ye' be requisite to preserve to themselves and their children all that gives dignity and value to life or hope and consola'ion to death. And if there be any pa triots or Christians in your land who Fhrink appalled from the illimitable virtue of private misery and public calamity which Btretcnes before them, we pray that In their boaoma a resolution may be quickened to recall the abused authority and vindicate the out raged civilization of their country. For the solicitude you have manifested to inaugurate a movement which contemplates results the most noble and humane, we returnour thanks; and are, most respectfully and truly, your obedient servants, O. C. Clat, J k , Jambs P. Holcombb. Next follows a note dated July 20, expressing the thanks of the Confederate agents to W. O. Jewett, Esq., for his good offices, and stating that the negotiations bad been suspended in consequence of the position taken by the Presi dent. The N. Y. Journal of Commerce says: This closes the correspondence connected with the peace negotiations. The reported ?? mission" of Mr. Greeley haa produced some effect in financial circles, coupled as It is with a knowledge of the fact that when Mr. Fessenden was here last week e.i "ffi'sifcf e,UT;v;it 'sssra made in thirty days," if desired. Most of the other New York papers seem to attach but little importance to the "regotia tlons," and allege that the whole affair is intended to bave an effect on the Chicago Con vention. THE FIGHT AT SNICKER'S GAP. Movements ef Gen. Wright. Snicekk'h Ferry, Va., July 20.?The forces under Major Gen. Wright bave pursued Early and Breckinridge from Washington to this place, sometimes skirmishing with tbelr rear guard, which proved to have been kept twen ty-four hours in the rear of the main body for purposes ot observation. It invariably fled when attacked. When near Pnrcellsville, some miles south of Snick er's Gap, Duffiie's cavalry, of Gen. Crook's command, came upon their trains, and cap tured 62 of their wagons, with but slight loss. Up at tbe mouth of the gap he had a more seri ous time, and lost a few men. Crook then brought up his cavalry, and, passing through the gap, reached the ferry, which was strongly protected, so that be could not cross. Tbe next day Gen. Wright came up with seme of his troops, and soon determined to at tempt a crossing, sufficiently, at least, to de velop their strength. He did so, and under cover of our artillery Are crossed over several regiments, which maintained their ground mar,fully for some time; but, as reinforcements were about to join them, they came back, the right of tbe lire being in some confusion. it was now near night, and a renewal of the attempt could not be made until morning. Gen. Wright tben began to maneuver to divide his enemy's force and his attention, when he could tr.sily bave destroyed him. Instead of succeeding in this, he found tbat Early bad received news from Lee which, together with the chance of being thrnshed by Wright, mvie him pack up and leave at double quick in the direction of Stras-burg. Gen. Wright crossed tbe river and proceeded a few mile* towards Winchester, but learning nothing to change his mind as to the direction the enemy had taken, he countermarched his force, In obedience to orders Among the casualties on the ISth, at Island Ford, were Col. Washburne, lltith Ohio, wounded; Col. Frost, 11th Virginia, wounded in the bowels; and Lieut. Col. Murray,5'h New York heavy artillery, (serving as infantry,) missing, and known to be severely wounded. The whole loss was 300 men. The enemy's loss was 500, by their own statements. Financial?Increased Confidence in Govern ment Securities.?The New York Post of yester day evening save: The most gratifying feature of the Stock Ex change this morning is tbe increasing demand for Government securities, and the rapid re covery of several descriptions, which have been temporarily depressed by the stringency of money, the consequent depreasion ot busi ness, tbe general diminution ot confidence, and tbe increditude as to tbe future policy of the Secretary of the Treasury. Gold opened at 2t>6, and after selling at 257 W, closed dull at 253. The reports that Mr. Fessenden has returned to th? city are without foundation. Tbe three year seven thirty notes are now printing. They will not be paid out to the creditors of tbe Government, and their In terest will be payable semi-annually. They will be offered for popular subscription at par. The stock market opened dull. We observe a small irregular advance in quotations, but no Increase of activity or spirit. Towards the close of business there was an improved feeling. Governments are more in demand. Crtl flcates have advanced to 9\)i in consequence ot the diminishing issue from the Treasury. Five-twenty coupons are quoted at 104%, and the small bonds are held at 105. Registered 1881 are offered at 103and for Augustseven thirtles 104# is bid. The Ccmmercial Advertiser says: Governments sympathized with the general improvement. Five-twenties sold freely* bringing at the close 1W#,. an advance ot % on yesterday's closing figure; one-year certificate? sold at with a brisk demand. The gold market is weak, with rwr little demand for export^ and little wanted by lau porters for customs. The transactions Are ? good deal confined to nominal dealing* between specalators, who lack the pertinacity and strength of the class that were scattered at tha closing ot the gold room, and cannot keep up prices during a season of dnllneea. The prioe opened at 859. bat subsequently advanoed to 258 U. At the secoad board stocks were inactive bat strong, and generally a fraction above tha morning quotations. There la an active speca* latlve movement In certificates of Imitated ? ness, based on an expectation that the lasna will^be largely rednoed. The cloalag prfca Gold bas remained steady sinoe a 30 n. ? - at 253*254, with little iolng. p ^
