There no longer rcmaluB a doubt of the speedy occupation of Atlanta by the great Western army of General Sbcruian. Over ti.e exceedingly difficult mountainous re^!nn from Chattanooga to the Ch&t'aboochoe, for more tlian' one hundred miles, it lu.s pressed the defensive army of Joe John flou, by fighting and flanking, from one strong position to another, till not another j is loft him. He is now iu a comparatively I open country, and by the superior forces of i Sherman may be readily expelled from or en- ' veloped in any place of shelter to which he j ?#y retreat. Of this daring niovem"ct of J Sherman, "so far into the interior of the oen- { frdcracy." the Atlanta Appeal says "it is cer tainly the boldest, not to say the most reckless, on record, not evon excepting the advance of ! Napoleon uj on Moscow;" that "such an oppor- J tunity for destroying or annihilating an army has never been offered to an opposing foe," | and that "if something is not now done in the gobbling up business we shall think there is a sad want of combination and co-operation among our military leaders." Eut this campaign lias shown that the in superable difficulty to Johnston has not been and is not 4he want on his part of hard fight ing nor of skilful combinations or coopera tion, but the want of men, which the exhausted confederacy can no longer supply. Herein lies the unfailing advantage which has enabled General Sherman to advance to Atlanta over the most difficult region east of the Rocky Mountains to an invading army, and to over come the most ftfruidable defensive positions that military ingenuity could devise. We have, too, in this superior strength of Sherman's array? which can. be constantly reinforced, against an inferior army which cannot be re plenished? satisfactory guaranty that the game is in his bands. We come, then, to the inquiry, what are the military advantages to be gained by General Sherman in gaining Atlanta, and in what direction from this point will he resume his line of march? We answer, first, that in gaining Atlanta we gain the important centre from which radiates the whole railroad system of Northern Georgia, and we gain the various military furnaces, foundries, machine shops and factories estab lished at that point by the enemy since the be ginning of the war. In the destruction of these manufacturing establishments and the rail roads around the town, together with employment given to Johnston's army, it is believed that, in a military view, we shall be fully compensated for ail the costs of General Sherman's cam paign. But the groat object here secured by Bherman is a new base for his future opera tions, from which by rail he may move east, west or south, as circumstances may invite or demand. In what direction he will resume bis line of | march will depend very materially upon the | line of retreat that may be adopted by Jebn- 1 ston. With the demolition and dispersion of Johnston's army, Sherman may move with im punity in any direction he pleases; for in fact the rebellion from Georgia to the Mississippi river on the one hand, and to the Gulf on the other, will be vanquished. Merman, then, to secure this crowning result, will continue to follow up Joe Johnston, or Bragg? if it be true, as reported, that the latter has so far risen aga{n in favor at Richmond as to recover his old position, while the former has so for Mien from grace as to lose it. In any event, the destruction of the rebel army of Georgia be ing the grand object of Sherman's campaign^!! will be pursued Mil accomplished. The direc tion, therefore, in which that army may retreat from Atlanta will be the next movement of Sherman. Wo conjecture that in order to maintain hie communications wKh Richmond, Johnston, or ' Bragg, as the case may be, will move eastward to Augusta, on the Savannah river. As if in anticipation of this necessity, it appears that large quantities of the rebel army supplies have already heen moved from Atlanta to Augusta. The distance between the two points b one hundred and seventy miles, over a favor able country fir an a&vanelag army, both in regard to its topography and Us abundant rap plies. There is no stream along the wBblo Wt IHftriiiti MlU point, or bridged la an boar la half A dozen places, by suob an mj m thai of Shermaa's, and there are no mountain* or defiles or ?wainps in the way, where a email foroe may bo! 4 in check a large one. The mar oh for Augusta, therefore, will probably be a raoe between the retreating and pursuing army, and, whether brolren up en route, or driven over the Savannah iuto South Carolina, tha enemy, in losing Attj-Uita, will have no railway commu nication left between the States north ai.d those south of the Savannah river except the solitary remain) eg connection by way of the city of Savannah. With the occupation of Augusta aud Savan nah aot a single rebel railway train from Richmond, or Raleigh, or Charleston, can pn"S bayond the Georgia border. The safety of Augusta aud Savvuuah, accordingly, now de volve* upon the rebel army of Georgia; and Sherman's grand campaign, we dare say, will not end short of Savannah or Charleston. Til* Maryland Haiti A Vallurt? But Little of lb* "Loot" Can n?Mli Rich mond. The rebel raiders who recently visited Mary land aro not escaping with their "loot'' bo easily as they bad expected. One of their columns has been already overhaaled in Snicker's Gap by the advnnce of General Hun ter's army, under General Crook, and there is good reason to believe that the greater part of their southward going trains may yet fall into th* hands of(!enerals Arm-ill and Dufile, com manding the First and Second cavalry division? of the Department of West Virginia. This cavalry has just been remounted at Wheeline, Pbikersbnrg and Cumberland, and, with its fine fresh hordes and veteran riders, should he able to strike fur down the Virginia valley country on both sides of the Blue Ridge. There is no doubt, lwwever, that the amount of "loot"' collected by the Maryland raiders ha." be?n grossly exaggerated, the entire Plate, in Its best day*, not having been able to furnish orie-half the number of cattle and horses which , aro described by "veraoious gentlemen" and "reliable contrabands" as having been scon crossing the various fords und ferries of the Potomac, en rovle for Richmond. Tiie part of Maryland invaded has never been a stock rnis iog country. It has never had more cattle than about sufficient cows to furnish milk and butter to* the inhabitants, while all its horses or any valnc have long since been swept into the Quartermaster's Department of the national array, only leaving old farm animals of from fi'teon to thirty years of age, or young colts and fillies ranging from one year old to three. Even of these poor brutes, which will all br^ak down undw the fatigues of the first three days of service, it is not probable that the rebels can Lave securcd many more than will suffice to replace their own sore-backed horse?, broken down in the northward march. On the whole, it may be questioned whether the rebel raiders will carry baok with tb"m to Richmond, or wherever they may be going, ono day's rations more than they will need for their own consumption. Soldiers arc abomina bly wasteful animals at best, and never so prodigally wasteful as when diepeuf-ing stores which t'uey hivo captured in the enemy's country. There is th^n no commissary or quartermaster "'red tape" to stand in their way: and the experience of all our own raids is that it is "easy come, easy go" with everything eatable, drinkable or wearable captured in the enemy's countiy. Judging by the bwet light we can obtain, it may be safely predicted that of every thousaud dollars worth of stores seized by General Early in Maryland not ten dollars worth will ever reach the deleted commissary ^Jr quartermaster departments of the rebel army at Richmond. Tite Ixcapacttt ok the A PUT N istkati ox.? ? 1 i The Roman general who had to beat Varro, his colleague, before he could hope to beat Hanni bal, his enemy. was perhaps an antetypc of all generals in republican armies. Every such general has sutured from a fire in the rear, so much more dangerous than the fire in front that the larger nmnber6have fallen by it. General Grant has at no time had so much dif- , Acuity with General Lo? in the present cam | paign as he has had at every step of the way | with the War Department. That department is cerrupt and rotten. Tt not only does not assist General Grant in the proper and necessary way ,1 for the vigorous prosecntion of the war, but it embarrasses him with all its little bitter quar rels, and has even attempted to reorganize the army now under his command without consul tation with him. And the President, cognizant of these things, goes on with his political schemes, leaves the departments to the incapa city and corruption cf the various Secretaries, and probably wonders bow it will all come ?ut. As our government is at present consti tuted there is no central point of power In it ? no exocutTve force at all. Every one in the Cabinet does what be likes, and the President 'neither knows nor cares what is done, until ' seme one who is trodden on resists and appeals to him. When called upon to decide the ques tion he tolls a little story and lapses again into bis political intrigues for the succession. Every one in the Cabinet does what he likes, and every one Mkes to do what is weakest and worst. Old Welles is in the bands of old Blair, whose imbecile relations have seised upon the United States Navy as their family appanage. Our navy Is not a power to help put down the rebellion. It Is one of old Blair's farms. Mr. Chase, when in the Cabinet, abolitionized It, be cause he was the best bully there, and 8tanton, from the force of habit, Is carrying on against our generals the system of embarrassment taught him by Cbase. With such a condition of the government, would it not be very won derful if the war went <m vigorously and aa it ought to ? England axo Gakapa Alakmkd.? There seems to be quite n hubbub in Canada respect ing Us relations with the United States, and trsops are being moved from one point and massed at another, by order of the British gov ernment, with remarkable alacrity. Now, why should Canada be thus alarmed, and why should the British government manifest so much concern about Ks Canadian possessions, just si this particular juncture0 We have made no threats against Canada. We bare furnished no indications of an Intention to gobble up those rlph apd fertU* regions; for that pear is not quit! ripe, and oaf apY^Hte lies not tfcat way at the present time. Does England feel guirty of having aided the rebel cause, and especially for allowing Canada to he made ths spot upon wbldb ths foes of the Union can safely oengregnt* and ooncoct schemes of trea son, robbery and oa range against the Northf It may be that Canada is alarmed to find such lift oonsplyupn M Clay, g ?on, of Mississippi; Beverly Tucker, Id* of Washington; George N. Sanders, of aaywhere, nod Horace Greeley, of tho New ToA Tribune, In consultation nt the Clifton Hons? on matters which, if known, might do little leu than itart th* world from its axis. Sanders was Greeley's correspondent nt Montgomery, Aln., the rebel ?apital, nt the breaking out of the rebellion, and the twain ma y bare bad a mutual interest In the huge army contracts the iudefatlgable Sanders then scoured from the then inchoate robe! gorornmcnt. What cause for alarm to Canada or England is there In the fact that two such worthy eon/i erts Bbould moet and sozzle over tbair brandy and water on the breezy piar/afl of the Clifton! None at all. It is but I tbe twitching* of the uneasy and guilty ?on- I science of the British government that spurs it j to the*? remarkable military movements in Chuada; or, it may be, it fears a revolution in Canada against itself. There Is something In being forearmed. Approaching Resignation or Mil Stanton.? It is reported from Washington that Mr. Stan toji will resign his position as Secretary of War immediately after the nomination of the 6hi* cago Convention is made, but whether with the intention In any contingency of supporting that nomination is unknown. Hie stauncliest friends of the President, since the late invasion, do not boaitat* to declare openly their convic tions that tho ro-cloction of Mr. Linooln is im pose We unless Mr. Stanton is got rid of. Ws unpopularity and the odiousncss of his course in the conduct of the War Department, his im becility and Inefficiency, as displayed in making no preparation to repel the invading hordes under Breckinridge, although be received from General Grant, two weeks previous notice that it was to be made, and the fact, which is becoming generally known, of his attempt* to thwart the measures of tho Lieu tenant General, are "daily increasing the odiutn which attaches to him, an 1 nro more than any administration can sustain before the people. A vigorous effort if being made to open the eyes or the President to these facts and induce him to make t>uch a change in tho War Depart ment as shall bring its chief officer in accord with the general who has beon chared by Congress, the President and the people with the conduct of military operations. An Eruption of Peaoe Negotiations at Washington, Richmond a.nd Nivgapa Faias. ? Peace negotiation* have agaiu broken out, and in three places. Our readers have already he.,rd that that sh; ffl gaited peripatetic, old Greeley, has gone ou a peace mission to Niaga I ra, and llat be lias b?cn preceded there by his I follow laborers in tbo groat c arise o.r dis ! union? George -N. Sanders, Beu Wood. Val ! landigham, Colorado Jcwett and imported Jake Thompson. In another column will be found au interesting account of their movements, in which Colonel Hay, the private Secretary of Mr. Lincoln, figures prominently. It now appears, on tho authority of a pretty general rumor, that there is a pca<ft correspond ence in progress between Washington and Richmond; that Jeff. Davis has sent a proposi tion to Oid Abe. and that Old Abe has sent a commissioner to Jeff, to talk the mntter over. Whether the matter began in tho cool neighbor hood of Niagara, in the contemplation of nature and tho pursuit of piscatorial pleasures, and so spread to Washington and Richmond, or whe ther it began at the frugal table of the m'glity Jeff., and so went to Niagara, and thence to Wusliington, is a nice point that we will have to leave to old Greeley, little Raymond and the other historians. But it* is an alarming fa'ct that this peace question is mooted at three points. Tbe great apostle of peace was put out or stopped up just before Congress ad journed?Fernando was squelcbod? and now we have the result of it. These iuternal fires must have vent, and when they are burning harmlessly, as they did in lornando, it is best te leave them alone. Ilaving stopped up tho peace crater in Congress, the trouble has now broken out in three dangerous places, and It will be wonflerful if more harm is not done by these three than was by tbo original one. Information Furnished. ? Ex-Mayor Opdyke wants to know who the proprietors of the World are, and has pat in a claim for twenty thousand dollars damages for an alleged libel published in that paper. The proprietary his tory of the World is a cheqnercd one. It was started on a high strung religious and moral ba?is; collapsed on that diet, and the lank and !ef*hles? boneaof the old gapping Couritr and Eu juirer were thrown to H as life sustaining raor tels. It subsequently went through a course of Sooloh herrings, London porter, linen trowsers and straw hats under one Sandy Cummings, a government contractor; then triod the India rubber diet under one Comstock; ran up, as it before had run down, the theatres and free con certs, and for a time was kept alive by Jock Anderson, Fernando Wood and solaco tobacco. Wood used it for a time in 1862 as a mouthpiece and lobby swab. Anderson sold his interest to his son-in-law, Judge Barnard and it finally fell into the hands of 8am Bar low, a smart politician; Elon Oomstock, a harm-, less representative of the celebrated Comstock family, and a proprietor of the New Tork Hotel, by whom it is now owned, in eon junc tion with tome others, with Mr. Manton Marble as the manager. It will be a somewhat singu lar coincidence if the Opdyke libel case, If it ever come to trial, should be tried before Judge Barnard, one of the former owners of the World. . A Goon Opportunity to Obtain a Commer cial Education. ? Those preparing for a busi ness life will profit by referring to the adver tisement of Messrs. Bryant, 8tratton & Co., whose system of business colleges? a connect ed chain of commercial institution;? is meet ing merited succcss in all the principal cities in the Union and in Canada. The branches taught in these institutions comprise every de scription of commercial education, including political eeonomy, domestic and foreign ex change, business correspondence, the shipment of merchandise, inland commerce in all it* ' branches? in short, everything that pertalbs to a thorough knowledge of mercantile affairs. The institutions are under the general msnagc ment of Messrs. II. B. Bryant and II. D. Strut ton, assisted bv an able oftrps of associate prin oipals and pro ftssors. The McOmsllan Sw?*d.? We have now on hand about eight hundred dollars, subscribed to a sword for Goneral MoCUUan. To this fund we add sucfa subscriptions as Ire sent us from day to dhy. But we notice that a person call ing himself "Louis Phillip, No. 2 Murray street.'' advertises that ho "has boon solicited If I for | purpose Who know Loots Phillip? Who to- , liaitedhiaa? Who authorised him to reoaive money for o MoGleUaa aword? Who la hot What does ho do with the money? Why doea he advertise for aub?criptiona? We ahoald like to have these questions satisfactorily an awered, and nntll they are we ad viae dl persona not to aend him any fuuda. Thb Naval Rkvisort Board.? The Naval Board, now In sew ion at Washington, acting upon the cases of officers who were not recom mended for promotion, has before it mat ters of the highest importance, which demand very peculiar discretion and judgment It la composed of high toned gentlemen and officers, who, we trust, will do the utmoet justice to all who present themselve a before it. We are of the opinion that it was not good taste in the Navy Department^ place on thia Board aoy offloer who waa a member of the one which "starred" the officers In question. It was hardly fair either to that member or to the other officers on the Board. ? Tbe country at large, aa well u each in dividual State, will look to Mr. Lincoln, and especially to Mr. Welles, to see that no old prejudices or personal antipathies be allowed to affect in any way the standing of any officer who goes before this Board.
