e United States army. The Republican adds: Bragg was deceived regarding the movements of Sherman, supposing that he had gone to the relief of Burnside at Knoxville. His appearance in force opposite our right wing was evidently a surprise.--And then again, the separation of Longstreet's corps and Wheeler's cavalry from the main body, turned out to be a most serious blunder, perhaps, though, one that could not have been anticipated. Among the wounded officers who have arrived at Atlanta we find the names of Major French, of the 63d Va., and Capt. A. H. Booth, of the 54th Va. Col. Horace Rice, of the 29th Tenn., and Lt. Co. Julius Porcher, of the 10th S. C., were killed. Col. Suggs, of the 50th Tenn., was dangerously, and Major Green, of the 29th Tenn., mortally wounded Capt.

Our works at the foot of Missionary Ridge extend along a line of two miles in length. They are built of h the eastern side, under cover of the rugged peaks of Missionary Ridge. At the present writing we have no further intelligeeceipt of some of the particulars of our retreat from Missionary Ridge, which began at dark on Wednesday evening, and was coon was clearly distinguishable from every point along Missionary Ridge.

Many of these were soon put in order and appropriated. There seems to be but one mode of escape for Burnside, and that by crossing the Holston under cover of the guns in position on the South bank of the river, and then moving down the stream and effecting a junction with Grant at some point near Chattanooga. The eastward route of escape towards Dandridge has been closed. On Monday last a portion of Wheeler's command had an engagement with the Yankee cavalry under Col. Byrd, near Kingston, East Tennessee. The result was not known, but it was said that we captured a considerable portion of Byrd's command. The above facts are gleaned from statements made by Rev. Mr. Simmons, Chaplain of the 11th Georgia regiment, who left Knoxville on Monday last. He was informed that 3,000 Federal cavalry took possession of Cleveland on Wednesday last. If this be true, we can have no communication with Longstreet. There are three locomotives and trains beyond Cleveland, between Cleve

The pretext for this vandalism was that they might be used as places of security by our pickets and sharpshooters. The Federal fired them as they abandoned them. The severest fighting on the approach of Longstreet in the city, in which Kershaw's brigade lost 50 or 60 men, occurred where the railroad crosses the old road to Campbell's station. At Lenoir's our troops found about 180 wagons and caissons abandoned by the enemy. Many of these were soon put in order and appropriated.
