VIEWS IN ATLANTA.

ON this page and on page 668 we give two views in ATLANTA. The view on this page represents the State Railroad Depot and the surrounding district, showing the effect of SHERMAN'S bombardment previous to the evacuation of the city. The sketch given on page 668 represents the rebels in the act of moving south. When SHERMAN took possession he ordered all the citizens, loyal and disloyal, to leave the city, it being his intention to make Atlanta a strong military post. A truce of ten days was established between the two armies for carrying out the order.

GENERAL R. J. OGLESBY.

BRIGADIER-GENERAL RICHARD J. OGLESBY was a lawyer of distinction in Decatur, Illinois, and a member of the State Senate when the war broke out. At the first signal he raised a regiment (the Eighth Illinois) for the three months' service, and with it was ordered to Cairo, where it formed part of the small force under General PRENTISS. He took an active part in the various minor operations inaugurated against the rebels on the Missouri and Kentucky shores ; but it was not until General GRANT began his operations against the great rebel strong-holds on the Cumberland and Tennessee rivers (Next Page)
