st led the advance of Breckinridge's command to Monterey. There he was detached for picket duty along what is known as Lick creek. During Saturday he had several unimportant skirmishes and when night arrived, leaving his regiment under command of Ler serve the reader, it may be well to explain that two small streams which rise near each other west of Monterey, one, Lick creek, empties eastward, while Owl creek flows westward; between them is an undulating ridge and numerous ravines. The recenw and the woods were cumbered with undergrowth. There were few fields, and they were of small area. Near the mouth of Lick creek is what was known as Pittsburg Landing, about which place and along the ridge described was camped the Federal Army. rates, Colonel Webster, of the Federal staff, was massing the Yankee artillery and infantry along the ridge in front of Lick creek. In the meantime, General Beauregard sent his staff officers along the line with orders to forward without delay. The

e discussion was renewed, General Beauregard still expressing his dissent, when rapid firing in front indicated that the attack had commenced, and General Johnston closed the discussion by saying: The battle has opened, gentlemen; it is too late to change our dispositions. He proposed that all move to the front, and the Generals promptly rode to their commands. The front line of the Confederate army was composed of the 3d Corps and Gladden's Brigade under Hardee, extending from Owl to Lick creek, a distance of three miles. Hindman's Division occupied the center, Cleburne's Brigade on the left and Gladden's on the right, having an effective total of 9,024. The second line was commanded by Bragg with two divisions—Wither's and Ruggle's—Wither's on the right and Ruggle's on the left. This line was 10,731 strong. The third line, the reserve under Polk (the 1st Corps), with three brigades under Breckinridge. Polk's corps was massed in columns of brigades on the Bark Road, near Mick

Adjoining the river, these ravines, deep and water's side, lay three miles below the mouth of Lick Creek. Two roads leading from Corinth, crossing Lick CrLick Creek about a mile apart, converge together about two miles from the landing.

ry brigade holds the second, thus covering the entire region of country as far as the banks of the Watauga River, upon which are encamped the rest of Ransom's division. Burnside resolves not only to dislodge this brigade, but to drive the Confederates into Virginia, for he was always apprehensive of a sudden attack from that direction. On the 9th of October he personally led three infantry divisions and one cavalry brigade under Shackelford to Bull's Gap, while Colonel Foster, ascending Lick Creek with a cavalry brigade, was going to cross the mountain more to the eastward, so as to bar at Rheatown the retreat of the enemy. On the morning of the 10th the infantry by feints detained the latter in front of the Blue Springs pass. Finally, at five o'clock in the afternoon, Burnside, believing that Foster had accomplished his movement, caused Jones' position to be attacked by Ferrero's division. The Confederate line did not resist long. The shadows of night put a stop to the operatio
Report from East Tennessee--daring Adventure of a scouting party. The rumors in regard to the burning of bridges on the waters of the Holston, in East Tennessee, have subsided into the authenticated fact that the only ones successfully fired this side of Knoxville, are the Union Station bridge, ten miles from Bristol, and another at Lick Creek, further on. Some two hundred feet of the bridge first named were destroyed, and it will require but a short time to restore it sufficiently for the running of the trains. There are reports of the burning of two bridges on the Georgia and Tennessee railroad, and some facts have been communicated to us relative to an attempt to burn the long bridge at Strawberry Plain, near Knoxville. The man who was stationed there to guard it saw fifteen men approaching, and used his pistol and double barrel shot-gun with such effect as to keep them at bay until assistance arrived; but he was very badly wounded himself. Two or three arrests have bee
tes after the guard passed through the latter bridge the structure was in flames, clearly showing that some rapid combustible material was used. Two of the bridges on the East Tennessee and Virginia Railways were destroyed--one bridge was over Lick creek, in Greene county, and another over the Holston river, in Sullivan county. The guard at Lick creek were unarmed and overwhelmed, and were tied and carried away, and kept off until some time during the day on Saturday. Three men have been arreLick creek were unarmed and overwhelmed, and were tied and carried away, and kept off until some time during the day on Saturday. Three men have been arrested whom the guard identified. The bridge over the Holston river was not guarded, as Sullivan county is known to be strongly in favor of the Confederate Government. The bridge over the Holston river at Strawberry Plains, in Jefferson county, was set on fire, but the fire was put out by the people. The guard had one hand cut off and his skull fractured. The indications are that one of the incendiaries was killed. A gentleman, just from East Tennessee, reports that great exci
be against the law to give aid and comfort to our enemies, we should like to know by what system of ethics the speculating Yankee harpy can be permitted to buy up articles of prime necessity and demand from the people ten prices for them. In times of war the people must protect themselves from the ravages of their enemies. The man who pays one dollars for a sack of salt, and charges ten dollars for it, simply because the necessities of his country compel his neighbor to give it, is a heartless, cold-blooded, speculating Yankee. He is the worst of enemies, and should be dealt with accordingly." Arrest of James Brittain, Jr. The Knoxville Register, of the 19th instant, says: Jas. Brittain, Jr., of Greene county, floater from Greene, Hancock and Hawkins, was yesterday arrested at Lick Creek, (where the bridge was burnt,) by the Hawkins's volunteers, under Maj. Bynum, and brought to this city. The cause of his arrest was the use of seditious and incendiary language.
The bridge over Lick Creek, on the East Tennessee railroad, has been repatred, and trains now pass through from Knoxville to Bristol without interruption. The fortifications at Cumberland Gan are complete. And insure it against any Kiss from the enemy.
