iven back. Buford, with his cavalry, made a reconnaissance, crossing at Germania Ford and driving in the rebel pickets.

The Baltimore American's special Fort Monroe correspondent says there is a rumor there, which obtains belief with many, that Richmond is being evacuated.

d a half. Gen. Thomas's forces then charged the rebels for nearly a mile and a half, punishing them badly. About two o'clock in the afternoon the rebels made a fierce dash on our centre, composed of the divisions of Gens. Van Cleve and Reynolds. Gen. Van Cleve's forces were struck on the right flank, and, being vigorously pushed, fell back until Gen. Carter's line was broken, and the troops became much scattered. Gen. Thomas on the left, and Gen. Davis on the right, then pushs at Chattanooga, a purpose which if successful would equally have resulted in cutting our army in two. But it was not successful. The momentum of the rebel columns carried them through at least one weak spot in the centre, where Van Cleve and Reynolds commanded, and apparently also carried at one time the portion, or a part, of the portion held by Gen. Thomas on the left. But the latter gallantly retrieved whatever disaster he may have suffered at first, and co-operating with Gen. Davis on t

The country where the battle was fought is level, but thickly overgrown with small timber and brush wood, and is very unfavorable for the use of artillery, very little of which was used. The casualties in wounded are heavy, but supremely light in killed for so heavy a musketry engagement. The fight on the left was one continuous roll of musketry for an hour or more. No General officers were injured. Col. Heg and Col. Bradley, commanding brigades, were wounded. Col. Jones, of the 36th Ohio regiment, and Col. Carroll and Maj. Vannetta, of the 10th Indiana regiment, were also wounded. Lieut. Jones, of company A, 10th Indiana regiment, was killed. Lieut. Col. Hunt, of the 40th Kentucky regiment, and Lieut. Col. Maxwell, of the 2d Ohio regiment, were wounded. Lieut. Degraw, Lieut. Ludlow, and Lieut. Fessenden, of battery H, 5th Artillery, were wounded. Lieut. Boyd, of battery I, 4th artill
The gunboats and vessels of lightest draught crossed the bar, and preparations were made for the attack. Capt. Crocker, of the Clifton, was to feel the enemy, uncover the batteries, and ascertain his strength and position. Gens. Franklin and Weitzel examined the shore of the Pass to find the most eligible point for landing the forces. The Clifton steamed up the Pass, occasionally throwing a shell from her rifle guns at the only work visible — an earthwork of six large guns. No reply was m of the enemy. When the Clifton returned the order of battle was immediately arranged. The gunboats Clifton, Arizona, and Sachem, were to engage the enemy's works, while the Granite City was to cover the landing of a force of 500 men of-Gen. Weitzel's division, selected from the Port Hudson heroes, and composed of two companies of the 165th New York, four companies of the 161st New York, and a detachment of the 75th New York regiment, under command of Capt. Fitch, of the latter regiment.

ding a newly-constructed 15-feet wall instead, they were unable to do so, having no scaling ladders. The rebels at the same time opened a concentric fire of shell, grape, and canister from a ram and the adjacent forts, so that the difficulty was increased. The garrison seem to have felt secure, as a sentry, being hailed, demanding a surrender, replied: "Hallo, Yank, are you there? Nary a surrender; you can't climb up here."

A dispatch from Washington, dated the 20th inst., says: From various sources we have the following reports of doings in front: The rebels tried to effect crossings at different points on the Rapidan on Wednesday, but only succeeded at Robinson Ford, and there they were speedily driven back.

Brown, of the 31st Illinois regiment, were wounded. Capt. Searies, Assistant-Adjutant-General of Stark weather's brigade, was killed. Battery H, of the 5th artillery, was lost and afterwards recaptured by the 79th Indiana regiment. The battle is not yet over. It will probable be renewed to-morrow. Rebel prisoners represent that the corps of Gens. Hill, Polk, Johnston, and Long street were in the engagement. Our men are in the best of spirits and eager to begin a new. A dispatch dated Washington, the 20th, says: A dispatch has been received from Gen. Rosecrans,

scene of action, and in the dispatch we print this morning, we have the positive assertion of rebel prisoners that the corps of both Longstreet and A. R. Hill were in the engagement. But those corps comprised more than two thirds of Lee's army, and unless the Virginia campaign is reduced to the garrisoning of Richmond, it is impossible to suppose that such a proportion of that army has been transferred to Georgia soil. Still it is evident that some of the rugged veterans who fought against Meade at Gettysburg did on Saturday confront the lines of Rosecrans to the southward of Chattanooga. * * * * * The meagre account received yesterday reads not unlike the dispatches which announced the second day's engagement at Gettysburg. It is the resolute effort which the rebels never fail to make to pierce the line opposed to them. Break through somewhere — at any cost of life, or of success at other points.

Davis on the right, then pushed forward their forces vigorously toward the Gap, and, after a hard fight, recovered the ground which had been lost on the extreme right. The fight disclosed the intention of the rebels, which evidently was to get between us and Chattanooga. The general engagement, which commenced at 11 A. M., ended about 6 P. M. Gen. Palmer, who had gathered together our scattered forces, and Gen. Negley, who had been sent from the right flank to feel the centre, pushed forward and re-established our line, as it had been before the battle began, along the Chickamauga Creek. The country where the battle was fought is level, but thickly overgrown with small timber and brush wood, and is very unfavorable for the use of artillery, very little of which was used.
