The siege of Knoxville. Bristol, Dec. 8. --The siege of Knoxville was raised on Friday night, our forces falling back slowly to Morristown, where a stand will probably be made. The work of putting the East Tennessee and Virginia Railroad in running order to that point will be pushed forward by Col. Owen, of the Virginia and Tennessee Railroad, who is entrusted with it. Our entire loss around Knoxville will not exceed 600, principally of Hood's division. Among them are Colonel Ruff, 18th Ga., killed; Col. Fifer, 18th Miss., seriously wounded, and Captain Dunn, of Longstreet's staff, wounded in the leg. The assault on the 29th failed, it is said, in consequence of forged orders, recalling Anderson's brigade.
