cted any new earthworks around Chattanooga, but had materially strengthened our old deserted forts. The fort beyond the cemetery was mounted with six guns. Rosecrans had been in Chattanooga nearly all the time since its first occupation by his forces. The Yankees have left no provisions for any one, save the Abolition sympathizers, and some of the loyal Southern people were actually subsisting upon parched corn. The enemy had received no reinforcements up to Monday night from Grant's army.--They were under the impression that Gen. Joe Johnston commanded our army. The following citizens of Chattanooga and vicinity were arrested and confined by the enemy: Capt Moses Wells, L Ryle, Dr. Gillespie, R Simpson, Repan, Sr., Mr. McGill, Mr. McCreary, and Mr. Davis Swick. The pretended charges against the last mentioned gentleman were that he had threatened to poison his well if the Yankees ever came to Chattanooga. Mr. McCreary has been robbed of everything and was s
is that the New Orleans Bee, of the 9th, gave the particulars of a treaty of peace and commerce between France and the Confederacy, and stated that one of the Confederate Commissioners was to accompany Maximilian from France to Mexico, with a fleet of French and Austrian vessels — all to sail on the 1st of October.

Grant, of the 13th Ala.,--from Harrisburg and Baltimore. David's Island is a place of about 90 acres, eighteen miles from New York, and the wounded prisoner is fortunate who gets there.--Some of our wounded were carried there from Gettysburg. Upon their arrival all of their clothes and blanket from there to Johnson's Island, they were each given a $5 greenback. The quartermaster of the post is Mr. John H. Bosher, formerly of Richmond. Another place where the Confederate wounded are well treated is at Harrisburg, Pa. Our informant, Mr. Grant, who was wounded at Gettysburg, says the treatment there was most humane, and that the ladies did everything in their power for the wounded. The accounts of these two gentlemen are cheerful rays in the dark history of Yankee hospitals generall
