The Lincolnites in Tennessee--Shary work expected. The Express Company, we have been informed, has stopped the transmission of packages beyond Bristol for the present, in consesequence of the proceedings of the Lincolnites in the vicinity of Carters's Depot, and other points in East Tennessee, and the prospect of a fight at aoxville. This bridge was guarded, but whether by a force sufficient to resist attack or not, we are unable to say. Passengers who have returned to Lynchburg from Bristol report that there is a general rising of Lincolnites in East Tennessee. These men have been drilling in camp for some time past as "Home Guards," with the avowedglad to know that our Government is redoubling its energies in regard to operations in that quarter. Intelligence has been received that a skirmish took place on Sunday night, some fifteen miles beyond Bristol, between 22 of our scouts and a body of Union men, in which two of the latter were killed, and nine taken prisoners.
