NEAR ATLANTA, July 14, 1864.
General S. COOPER,
General Wheeler reports Dodge’s corps, with two brigades of cavalry, on this side of the river near Roswell, and Howard’s and Schofield’s corps also on this side, intrenched midway between Roswell and the railroad. A body of Federal cavalry crossed the river last night opposite Newman, but was driven back by Brigadier-General Armstrong.
All quiet elsewhere.
