There is no military news from America, unless it be

that General Sherman has occupied the South Carolina bank of the Savannah River as well as the Georgian side, and pushed the Con- federate pickets beyond Hardeeville, which is said to have been seized by General Kilpatrick's cavalry. Hardeeville is a station on the Charleston and Savannah railroad, about twenty miles from Savannah. It is not yet known what will be Sherman's next move, but it is generally believed that he will march up the river to Augusta, take Augusta if he can, and then having severed the communication of Charleston with Richmond and the west, march back upon Charleston by way of Branchville, the great railway junction.
