them. From Nashville. A gentleman who left Nashville on Saturday last informs the Chattanooga Rebel that fifty-five regiments of Buell's command crossed the Cumberland river at that place ten days ago, but that it was not known whether they went in the direction of the mouth of the river or to Bowling Green. A rumor was prevalent in Nashville that Buell had encountered the forces of General Bragg, in the vicinity of Bowling Green, but nothing authentic or positive is known. Gen Thomas's division still remained at Nashville, and is variously estimated at from 5,000 to 15,000 men; but everything went to indicate the early departure of this body of troops from the place. This is but the rear guard of Buell's army. Andy Johnson is reported as having given himself up to liquor, and remains in his room almost all the time. He made a speech last week, in which he told the people if they insisted on it, and were disposed to be the slaves of Jeff. Davis, he would wash his
e enlightened British public could see this last Fredericksburg business in its true light, they would insist on Gen. Lee apologizing to Hooker forthwith, as it was all wrong for him "to pitch in" before Hooker got ready. Lee ought to have known that a great army like that could not move over five or six miles a day. We never can crush out this rebellion so long as our opponents are tolerated in taking such unfair advantage of us. Sambo is soon to be employed on our side. I see that Gen Thomas has been organizing him into fighting material on the Mississippi river; and we white folks can "rest on our oars, " while nigger freedom and Southern independence fight the battles! Were it not that I want to see the country about Chattanooga, I believe I would leave the service and retire to the shades of private life.

'come to stay' when that was free or four gorillas in de house, and l'd frod away my gun and run for de gunboat." Notwithstanding this defeat, disgraceful and discouraging the Yankee officers maintained that the negroes would fight well, and Adj't Gen Thomas when he reviewed them in our presence said that he was once a slaveholder, but was proud to see them free and shake them by the hand. At Port Hudson and Milliken's Bend they had fought desperately, and only a few days since 400 had whipped For rest at Paducah. But then Thomas may have changed his mind since the affair of Fort Pillow. Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday we remained on the Island, kindly treated by the Yankees, insolently by the negroes, with the dazzling light of the sun reflected from the glaring sand scorching out our eyes, the eternal, never ceasing whistle of the shrill file, and the rubidy dub dub dub of the drum constantly clashing upon the ear. Thankful, indeed, were we when the little mail steamer Clyde,

k Herald, of the 4th, in an editorial summary of the situation, says: The rebel leaders at Richmond evidently fear that, while strengthening our army on the Rapidan Gen Grant has not weakened the victorious army at Chattanooga. Jeff Davis, therefore may well be some what uneasy concerning the safety of Atlanta, while all the help that he can muster is required for the defence of Richmond. The withdrawal of Longstreet from East Tennessee is of itself equal to a heavy reinforcement of Gen Thomas, and it is probable that Gen Sherman — Gen Grant's chief in command in the West--will take good care that no further reinforcements from Georgia are sent forward to Gen Lee.

While we were not further advanced in the West than Nashville or Murfreesboro', it was almost impossible to prevent the concentration of all the rebel reserves of Georgia and A
