the night the enemy evacuated James City, and retired slowly on a road leading to Culpeper C. H. A. signal message reached Gen. Stuart apprising him that the immense camps of the enemy near Culpeper C. H. were enveloped in dense smoke, and that Gen. Meade, with his whole army, was moving rapidly in the direction of the Rappahannock. Upon the receipt of this intelligence Gen. Stuart, with his command, pressed rapidly to Culpeper C. H., arriving there in time to engage Meade's rear guard, consistMeade's rear guard, consisting of one brigade of infantry and the whole of his cavalry, commanded by Gen. Pleasanton. Gen. Stuart ordered a charge, which was led by Brig.-Gen. J. B. Gordon, one of the most dashing cavaliers I know. This charge resulted in a total rout and confusion of the enemy, which was followed up in fine style by Gen. Stuart until be reached the crimsoned stained fields of Brandy. There the enemy belted, and evinced a stubborn determination to hold the ground. In the meantime Gen. Fitz Lee, who is
From General Bragg's army.[from our own correspondent.] Near Chattanooga, Oct. 20, 1863. A portion of the reinforcements for Rosecrans — those from Meade's army — are reported to have crossed the river at Bridgeport, as if preparatory to another advance upon our flank and rear. An effort will doubtless be made to reoccupy Lookout Mountain, and get possession of the railroad from Chattanooga to Bridgeport. Possibly these forces have been crossed over for that purpose, if at all; or, it, being difficult to feed them at Chattanooga, where the Federals are reported to be reduced to one-quarter rations, they may have been stopped near Bridgeport in order to be convenient to supplies. The wagon train destroyed by Wheeler was loaded with ammunition, clothing, and commissary supplies, all of which are said to be much needed by the Federal army. It required a whole day for him to burn the stores at McMinnville, they were so numerous. Among other bridges destroyed by him

It is understood that the President on Monday last ordered Gen. Meade to attack Lee wherever he could find him, as he believed that, wi his forces, it would result in the perfect rout of Lee's army. If Meade gained a victory, he was to have all the glory; and if he failed, the President was willing to assume the responsibility of it. Gen. Meade, while here, conferred with the President. The headquarters of GGeneral Meade is at Warrenton, and the army is thereabouts, in excellent condition. It will be some time before the forces under General MeadGeneral Meade can advance. From a gentleman connected with the reconstruction of the railroad, we learn that its destruction by the rebels has been mostement between them, are published. The Baltimore American says Meade's army is to take a new route to Richmond. Gold was quoted at

Grant or somebody else is to advance against Johnston, and Meade is to advance against Lee. Never, according to their veracious organs, was the prospect of crushing the rebellion so bright. We are to be pressed up into a small space, and annihilated before the mud comes on — that is before the first of December. We should probably feel some degree of alarm at these terrible threats had we not heard them two months ago, just before Rosecrans advanced upon Atlanta and stopped at Chattanooga, and Meade advanced upon Richmond to fall back on Washington. Indeed, we do not think the trumpets are sounded quite so fiercely now as they were on that occasion, and seeing that such is the fact, we take heart of grace, and comfort ourselves with the musty old proverb that "threatened men live long."--It would
