Lincoln's emissaries at work in Tennessee. Our Lynchburg correspondent furnishes us with information direct from the locality of the burnt bridge in East Tennessee, to which allusion is made in the telegraphic column. The one known to be burnt is called "Union bridge," and crosses the Holston river, eleven miles beyond Bristol. Its length is nearly 150 yards, and it will require at least fifteen days to repair it so that the trains can pass over. In the meantime, passengers and baggage will be transferred across the stream, in order to keep up the connection this way. It is also reported that another bridge has been burnt on the East Tennessee road, near Carter's depot! but of this we have no authentic information. The villainous emissaries of Lincoln continued their work by cutting the telegraph wires, and the whole transaction may be regarded as preliminary to an advance upon our forces in East Tennessee.--The fact that bridges between Atlanta and Chattanooga were burnt o

The Lincolnites in Tennessee--Shary work expected.

East Tennessee. The telegraphic dispatches inform us that Gov. Harris, of Tennessee, is setting earnestly to work to frustrate the designs of the traitors in that State. The leniency that has been shown towards them heretofore has warmed them into life, and they now seek to wound the bosom that nourished them. Reliable advices state that 2,000 Unionists have assembled at or near. Greenville, on the line of the railroad, fifty miles beyond Bristol, toward which point the Georgia troops that lately left this city are advancing.

Transportation of treasure. We learn that J. H. Craigmiles, Esq., of Cleveland, Tennessee, who left this city last Thursday with $400,000 in cash, furnished him by that indefatigable agent of the Commissary Department, Major Frank G. Griffin, has arrived safely at his destination with his treasure. With the aid of two good Southern men, secured at Bristol, he crossed the river after the bridges were burned, and his heavy bags of cash are now, as Major Ruffin desired, transferred into Kentucky hogs. To have gotten possession of that large amount of treasure would have been viewed as a God send by the Unionists of East Tennessee.
