The situation at Chattanooga. [from our own Correspondent.] Lookout Mountain, Tenn., Sept. 28. Rosecrans has not evacuated Chattanooga, nor is there any reason to believe that he has any such intention. The long lines of infantry, cavalry, and artillery reported by the signal corps some days ago to be crossing the Tennessee to the north side, are now believed to have been forces sent out for the purpose of escorting provision and forage trains to Stevenson and McMinnville, whence theind the town are other batteries admirably located. Indeed, the entire curve of the Tennessee occupied by the enemy is covered with a network of forts, breastworks, masked batteries, and rifle-pits. Many of them can be seen distinctly from Lookout Mountain, whilst only portions of others can be detected among the trees and behind the hills. When viewed from our picket lines in front, as I saw them this morning, they look formidable enough. Can this stronghold be taken by a direct assault
s: Since the picket fight night before last nothing has occurred to break the monotony along our lines. Yesterday not a gun was fired from either side until about sunset, when we opened upon them with a 22 pounder from a projection on Lookout Mountain, overlooking the railroad. The putting of this gun in position was done very quietly, so much so that our own troops were not aware of what was going on. The enemy were completely astounded when shell after shell exploded in the very heart d their pontoon bridges. If this be so Rosecrans may as well capitulate.--If his bridges remain intact his army is still in a very precarious position, because we hold the river above and below Chattanooga and the railroad along the base of Lookout Mountain, thus leaving him only one source from whence to draw the immense supplies necessary to feed his large army. Every pound of bacon, box of crackers, bushel of corn, and forage of every description, has to be wagoned from Bridgeport or Debher
