The late movements in East Tennessee. --The following extract from a letter, explains the late movement of our army under Lieut.-Gen. Longstreet: The Yankees came up in fine spirits a few days since, proclaiming as they advanced that they were about to drive Longstreet out of Tennessee. The Fourth Army Corps, a part of the 23d, and their entire cavalry force, moved up to a point between Dandridge and Morristown. Our forces were moved down to meet them on the 14th. After placing has it would have been under a leader like Ransom or Hampton, this would have been the last week for Federal forces in East Tennessee.

After placing his infantry, Gen. Longstreet with his staff, moved on to the front, and joining the cavalry, personally superintended its movements. The enemy endeavored, by a flank movement with their cavalry, to get into our rear. The quick eye of the General so arranged matters as to throw Jenkins's (late Hood's) division in their front, and he ordered Gen. Martin to throw a portion of his cavalry in the rear and press them upon Jenkins. Martin gave the order. The enemy, without being pressed; came u
