            SEPTEMBER 7TH.—Clear and cool; rained in the night.

            Gen. J. H. Morgan is dead,—surprised and killed in Tennessee,—and his staff captured.

            Gen. Hood telegraphs that the enemy is still retreating—toward Atlanta, I suppose.

            The cruiser Tallahassee having run into Wilmington, that port is now pretty effectually closed by an accumulation of blockaders.

            It is said Gen. Forrest has blown up Tunnel Hill; if so, Sherman must be embarrassed in getting supplies of ordnance stores.

            Sir Wm. Armstrong has sent from England one or two splendid guns (a present) to our government, with equipments, etc.

            And the manufacturers have presented us with a battery of Whitworth guns, six in number, but they have not arrived yet.
