From Tennessee. Chattanooga, Aug, 26th. --Morgan's proclamation, dated Hartsville, Aug, 18th, declares his intention of putting the law of retaliation in force since the Yankees will not permit his paroles to be recognized, and says he will in future imitate them in their exactions; retaliate upon them the cruelties and oppression with which his friends are visited and continue that course until the enemy consents to make war according to the law of nations. It is now certain that Buell's forces are falling back from or down the Tennessee, having evacuated Battle Creek, Bridgeport, and Stevenson, leaving but a picket guard at each place.
