under the belief that only three Federal corps had advanced up the valley of the Chickamauga, and that the remainder of Rosecrans's army was still on the north side of the Tennessee, near Chattanooga, and that Burnside had not yet formed a junction ay was full of danger; it might bring heavier reinforcements to his antagonist than any he could count upon. Moreover, Rosecrans was not on his guard, and did not look for an attack from an enemy who he supposed would be only too glad to effect hise worse than madness. Many of these works have been prepared or otherwise strengthened since the battle. But does Rosecrans intend to hold Chattanooga? A reconnaissance was undertaken last night at half-past 10 o'clock, when his pickets and se escaped out of their lines report that the whole army is moving toward Murfreesboro'. It may be a part of the plan of Rosecrans to leave a sufficient force behind to hold Chattanooga while he moves the main body of the army to some other point.
From Gordonsville. Gordonsville, Oct. 3. --The report that Meade had sent two army corps to Rosecran and that the enemy was preparing to fall back, is contradicted. Our scouts say that but one corps has been sent to Rosecrans, and that there are no indications of falling back. Three Federal prisoners, captured at Robertson river, and three of their deserters, passed through to day for Richmond.
Cromwell, and Napoleon, were accounted lucky men in their day, but their good fortune was sheer adversity compared to that of old Abe. They were all great men, and won their way to empire with their swords; but the most abject of Lincoln's sycophants — even the New York Herald itself — never called Lincoln a great man except in derision. He slips into the throne as easily and as gently as if he had been born in the purple. He steals into greatness as he stole into Washington upon his first advent. The paper from which we gather this information was published on the very day of Rosecrans's disastrous defeat. It exults in the anticipation of a glorious triumph by that General — calls him the first officer in the Yankee service, says that his army is overwhelmingly superior in numbers, in discipline, in appointments, and in courage to that of Bragg. and that a battle must result in the utter destruction of the latter. These Yankee editors are wonderful prophets, to be s
From Northern Virginia. --We received yesterday no late or important news from the line of the Rapidan. Passengers by the Central train were unable to furnish even a rumor from the army of Gen. Lee, from which it is reasonable to infer that no military movements looking to active operations are in progress. From the Valley we learn that Major Gilmore's battalion made a raid in Jefferson and Clarke counties in the early part of last week. The Yankees at Charlestown, becoming alarmed, left the place during Tuesday night, and our men entered the same night, and at last accounts were still there. Charlestown is eight miles from Harper's Ferry. The last accounts we had from the latter point represented the Federal force there to be about 6,000. They have been sent off, however, to strengthen Rosecrans or Meade. When at Charlestown Major Gilmore is but five miles from the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad. We hope to hear that he has tapped that road.
, who are so well fortified that one half of our forces can defy the whole of Rosecrans' army. Our lines extend from the river, below the city, along the side of Lonext time. They admit that in the attack by Longstreet's and Hill's corps on Rosecrans's centre, composed of their heaviest crack corps — Crittenden's and Thomas's lag of truce to arrange the exchange of wounded prisoners, at the instance of Rosecrans. The flag was met by Col. Jos. C. McKibben, Capt. D. G. Swain, Lieut. M. J. Kelly, and Surgeon Perrin, Medical Inspector, all of Rosecrans's staff. The preliminary arrangements were made conditionally on our part. The Yankee officers were The Atlanta Appeal, in an article on the probability of Burnside reaching Rosecrans, says: That he had not effected a junction with Rosecrans up to Sunday Rosecrans up to Sunday evening, appears to be the general belief. We have met a gentleman who left the river, some distance above Harrison's landing, on Friday, who informs as that a smal
From the battle-field. Missionary Ridge via Chickamauga, Oct. 3. --The sun rose bright and clear this morning after two days of heavy rains. The hostile lines of the enemy are plainly seen from Gen. Bragg's headquarters. A flag of truce was expected yesterday. The enemy is again busy strengthening his positions, the most formidable of which is a star-shaped fort in the enemy's rear partially constructed before the evacuation of Chattanooga by our troops. The health and spirit of the troops are very fine, and they are all anxious to be led against the enemy. Everything indicates quiet for some time. Rosecrans's forces seem to be massed in and immediately around the town. Three pontoons have been through across the river and his wagon trains are parked on the opposite banks.
Later from the North. The Baltimore American, of the 2d instant, has been received. We copy its summary of news: From Washington it is stated that in military circles there it is supposed that no glorious impediment will interfere with reinforcing the Army of the Cumberland. From Cairo we learn that Gen. Sherman's corps of Grant's army is on the move, but whither it is not known. The Indianapolis Journal, of Monday, states that 15,000 troops are to be sent forward to Gen. Rosecrans immediately from that place. The artillery lost in the recent battles is being rapidly replaced by new batteries from Nashville. Advices from the Army of the Potomac represent affairs there unchanged. A large force of the rebels is supposed to be concentrating in the Valley. A plan to burn all the Government steamers on the Western rivers is said to have been discovered in St. Louis. Several parties have been arrested there and the matter will be investigated. A ter
