m concerned no serious attention was paid to the stereotyped rumors. But, notwithstanding, a bona-fide attack was made upon us yesterday morning. About two o'clock A. M., our pickets were driven in upon the Murfreesboro, Franklin, and Nolinsville pikes, and more or less skirmishing ensued, until our men arrived under cover of our forts. Hardly had they effected their escape, when the enemy brought out two twelve-pounders upon the Murfreesboro pike, in full view of our gunners upon St. Cloud Hill, and commenced firing away, the first shot striking at a distance of a quarter of a mile from the base of the elevation. At the same time, two guns, which were not visible, opened upon us from the Franklin pike. The guns upon the Murfreesboro road, after the first two shots, directed their fire toward General Palmer's camp, occasionally kicking up quite a dust within musket-shot of the General's Headquarters. Finding that they could accomplish nothing in that location, and fearing
g officer, received a desperate wound from a musket-ball, which passed entirely through his body; yet it is hoped he will recover. The enemy's loss is seventy-five killed; wounded not known, as they took a large portion of them away. The officers and men of my command who took part in the engagement, behaved, without exception, nobly. To the following members of my staff--Major V. P.

midst of the great central basin of the State, surrounded by a highly and very fertile agricultural district, enjoying considerable facilities for military manufacture the focus of several important paved roads and railways, and within two days of the Ohio river by water when the Cumberland is at a good stage, the political and strategical importance of Nashville can hardly be overrated. A letter, dated the 18th ult. says of its defences. When I left here in September the fort on St. Cloud Hill had hardly been begun. Now it covers the entire hill, looming into vast proportions and dignified with a title. Not a gun had been mounted or a rifle-pit dug; the Capitol remained unornamented with slege guns, and the water-works had sot anticipated being turned into a fort. Now the city is encircled by a chain of rifle pits and forts.--The streets have been barricaded and pitfalls made it is almost impossible to get in or out of the city. The next battle is expected to occur on
Ranaway --From the subscriber, on 30th of November, a negro woman named Louisa. The said negro was purchased by me at Messrs. Dickinson & Hill's office. She is about 5 feet 10 inches high; stout built; very black and had on when she left a blue striped frees. She formerly belonged to Mr. John Cake, of Williamsburg, where she has a husband and a good many acquaintances, and it is likely she will endeavor to get back there again. I will give $10 if taken in the city of Richmond, or $25 if taken any where between Richmond and Williamsburg. The said negro has some of her front teeth out. No other marks recollected. de 2--5t* Wm. A. Chisteman.
