Major James Wilson and Capt Cabell Breckinridge, staff officers of Gen. Breckinridge; and Major Winchester, Gen. Bates's A. A. General, are among them. The two escaped officers, who were carried to the rear when captured, says: The Yankees expected to capture Gen. Bragg and his army that night, (the 30th of November,) as an immense column was parked around our left before the attack was made in front. They say that they met a second line after dark, which hindered their getting to Chickamauga bridge and station. They boast of cutting off Longstreet and of having sent heavy reinforcements to Burnside. The Yankees admitted a repulse at Ringgold, and that, fearing another Chickamauga, they retired. The slaughter of Federal was very great along the line leading to Bragg's headquarters.
