Richmond Newspaper Report on Georgia Skirmishing, Brown Meeting Johnston

The Richmond Times Dispatch printed a brief report on some skirmishing in north Georgia, and mentioned that Governor Joseph E. Brown had been out to visit Confederate General Joseph E. Johnston.

From North Georgia. Atlanta, June 10. –The enemy developed in force yesterday in our front at Ackworth and on our extreme right cast of the railroad towards Roseville. There was partial skirmishing in the afternoon in front of Hood’s corps. Prisoners report the bridge at Etowah rebuilt by the Yankees and trains running to Ackworth. Sherman avoids any effort to bring on an engagement out of his breastworks. Captured Yankees say he has orders not to risk a general engagement. Gov. Brown returned from the front yesterday, where he has been with Gen. Johnston.
