oints mounted by cannon, where the earthworks are heavier. The enemy are also well fortified, having an inner line of strong fortifications and an outer one of rifle pits for sharpshooters. The inner line embraces the square fort thrown up by Gen. Bragg off an elevation South of the town, in which were two 32 pounders, which were spiked and abandoned, but the enemy, had unspiked and had put them in position in the fort. They have also a fortification on the north side of the river, from whichmplishment. Last night the enemy pressed down on our pickets, when a heavy skirmish ensued, but which lasted but a few moments, the enemy being driven back and badly punished. Col. J. P. Jones, Inspector General, and Capt. Wm.Reid, of Gen. Bragg's staff, proceeded to the enemy's lines this morning with a flag of truce to arrange the exchange of wounded prisoners, at the instance of Rosecrans. The flag was met by Col. Jos. C. McKibben, Capt. D. G. Swain, Lieut. M. J. Kelly, and Surgeon
From the battle-field. Missionary Ridge via Chickamauga, Oct. 3. --The sun rose bright and clear this morning after two days of heavy rains. The hostile lines of the enemy are plainly seen from Gen. Bragg's headquarters. A flag of truce was expected yesterday. The enemy is again busy strengthening his positions, the most formidable of which is a star-shaped fort in the enemy's rear partially constructed before the evacuation of Chattanooga by our troops. The health and spirit of the troops are very fine, and they are all anxious to be led against the enemy. Everything indicates quiet for some time. Rosecrans's forces seem to be massed in and immediately around the town. Three pontoons have been through across the river and his wagon trains are parked on the opposite banks.
Cromwell, and Napoleon, were accounted lucky men in their day, but their good fortune was sheer adversity compared to that of old Abe. They were all great men, and won their way to empire with their swords; but the most abject of Lincoln's sycophants — even the New York Herald itself — never called Lincoln a great man except in derision. He slips into the throne as easily and as gently as if he had been born in the purple. He steals into greatness as he stole into Washington upon his first advent. The paper from which we gather this information was published on the very day of Rosecrans's disastrous defeat. It exults in the anticipation of a glorious triumph by that General — calls him the first officer in the Yankee service, says that his army is overwhelmingly superior in numbers, in discipline, in appointments, and in courage to that of Bragg. and that a battle must result in the utter destruction of the latter. These Yankee editors are wonderful prophets, to be s
Mechanics meeting. --According to adjournment, a meeting of the mechanics of Richmond was held at the City Hall on Saturday night last. At the hour of half-past 7 o'clock Mr. Benjamin Bragg took the chair, and was assisted by Mr. Adolphus Gary as Secretary. The report from the committee appointed at the last meeting to memorialize the Legislature on the subject of reducing the prices of provisions and of adopting some measures against speculation, was then called for when. Mr. E. B. Robinson, chairman, stepped forward and read the memorial which had been prepared and adopted by that committee, as well as the bill reported by the Legislative committee to put town extortion and protect the men of salaries from the heartless attempts of those traitorous traders who are every day trying to grind them to the very dust. After the adoption of the report of the committee, Mr. Robinson offered the following resolutions, which were adopted. "1. Resolved, That it is wi
From General Bragg's army. [from our own Correspondent.] Lookout Mountain, Tenn, October 6th, 1863. The dull monotony which has prevailed in camp since our arrival in front of Chattanooga was relieved yesterday by a bombardment of the enemy's works. Several of our longest range guns were placed in position — some of them on the side of Lookout Mountain — and a slow but regular fire was kept up from 11 o'clock in the morning until 5 in the afternoon. This fire was maintained at intervals during last night. The guns put in position on the side of the mountain were the 20 pounder Parrotts of Col. E. P. Alexander, chief of artillery in Longstreet's corps. The enemy replied to our fire from three points only — their extreme left up the river, the star fort in the centre, and the moccasin works on their left. These last works are on the north side and in a bend of the river opposite our left, and are so designated because the ground in the bend of the river assumes the shape <
"Absentee," (Mr. Lindbergh,) the correspondent of the Atlanta Register, who was put under arrest by Gen. Bragg, has been released by a civil court.
Dr. F. C. Baur, the famous German Pantheist, died in Berlin recently. He was considered a much more powerful and dangerous opponent of the Christian religion than Voltaire. On his death-bed he renounced his previous belief and prayed formerly. The Memphis Bulletin informs us that Brig.-Gen. M. Jeff. Thompson, Col. John Q. Burbridge, and a number of other Confederate officers, have been sent to Johnson's Island, Gen. Bragg, in a speech to some of his troops a few days since, intimated that the army would not remain idle long.
The Daily Dispatch: October 12, 1863., [Electronic resource], The situation at Chattanooga — the Yankee Fortracatrous. (search)
The situation at Chattanooga — the Yankee Fortracatrous. The Atlanta Appeal, of the 6th inst., says: By a look at the map it will be perceived that if the Yankees are allowed to concentrate a large army at Stevenson, Bragg will be placed in the same position that he was in when Rosecrans made the demonstration on Wills's valley; when, with a large army in front of him, chafing to recover the disaster of the previous fight, and a fresh army on his left flank, with the army of Burnside, who has probably received large reinforcements from the tories of East Tennessee, on his right, another retrograde movement may become necessary, unless steps are taken to counteract the movements of the enemy. There is no time to be lost. We must prepare not only to meet the additional strength that is to be hurled against us, but also to drive it back. We must have East Tennessee, at least, not only to open up our lines of communication with the East, but also to be able to obtain th
Mass Mating at the city Hall. --One of the largest and most enthusiastic meetings which has assembled in this city for a long time, was held at the City Hall on Saturday night last. At a quarter to 8 o'clock Mr. Benjamin Bragg, who had presided at the two previous gatherings of the mechanics of Richmond, took the stand, and explained that, in consequence of a inner which prevailed that Mr. Geo. W. Randolph, the Senator from the city of Richmond, had openly expressed his determination not to vote for the bill now pending before the Legislature for the reduction and general regulation of prices, unless instructed so to do by his constituents, this meeting had been convened in order to obtain a free expression of the sentiment of the people generally, and for the purpose of adopting resolutions of instruction for their Senator and members of the House of Delegates. The meeting was for the citizens of Richmond, and could no longer he regarded as confined to the mechanics and workin
railway. Our picket line now extends six miles beyond Jonesboro', with no enemy in sight except scattered parties. The following dispatch has been received from General Hood: "Headquarters Army of Tennessee,"September 9, 1864. "General Bragg: General Sherman has ordered the removal of all citizens from Atlanta, to go North or South, as they may elect, and proposes a truce for ten days to provide for the transportation of such as may desire to come South. I have accepted, an the fall of Atlanta, but they were induced to remain until after that event. Wheeler's report of his operations. The following official dispatch was received yesterday: "Headquarters Army of Tennessee,"September 10, 1864.
