This, by the use of pontoon bridges at Chattanooga and Brown's Ferry, would secure to us by the north bank of the river across Moccasin Point, a shorter one by which to reinforce our troops in Lookout Valley, than the narrow and tortuous road around the foot of Lookout Mountain afforded the enemy for reinforcement. The force speeled for this expedition consisted of five thousas stationed there, and seized the hills covering the ferry, without the loss of a man killed, and but four or five wounded. The remainder of the force, together with the materials for a bridge, were moved by the north bank of the river across Moccasin Point to Brown's Ferry, without attracting the attention of the enemy; and before day dawned the whole force was ferried to the south bank of the river, and the almost inaccessible heights rising from Lookout Valley at its outlet to the river, and

It is particularly desirable that a force should be got through to the railroad between Cleveland and Dalton, and Longstreet thus cut off from communication with the South; but, being confronted by a large force here, strongly located, it is not easy to tell how this is sion (14th corps) of Sherman's column, reached Ringgold about noon of the same day.

The capacity of the railroad and steamboats was not sufficient, however, to supply all the wants of the army, but actual suffering was prevented. Ascertaining from scouts and deserters that Bragg was dispatching Longstreet from the front, and moving him in the direction of Knoxville, Tenn., evidently to attack Burnside, and feeling strongly the necessity for some move that would compel him to retain all his forces and recall those he had detached, directions were given for a movement against Missionary Ridge, with a view to carrying it and threatening the enemy's communication with Longstreet, of which I informed Burnside by telegraph on the 7th November. After a thorough reconnaissance of the ground, however, it was deemed utterly impracticable to make the move unti

Gen. Elliot had been ordered by Thomas, on the 25th of November, to proceed from Alexandria, Tennessee, to Knoxville with his cavalry division, to aid in the relief of that place. The approach of Sherman caused Longstreet to raise the siege of Knoxville and retreat eastward on the night of the 4th of December. Sherman succeeded in throwing his cavalry into Knoxville on the night of the 3d.
