September 9.

Chattanooga, Ga., was occupied by the National forces belonging to the army of General Rosecrans.--Colonel Cloud, with his division, belonging to the army of General Blunt, attacked a body of over one thousand rebels at Dardanelle, Ark., and defeated them, capturing their entire camp and a large amount of stores.--Lieutenant-Colonel Hays, with companies A, B, H, and parts of E and F, of the One Hundredth Ohio regiment, was attacked near Telford, Tenn., ninety-three miles up the railroad, by one thousand eight hundred rebels, under Jackson, and fought them gallantly for two hours, losing heavily in killed and wounded, but was finally compelled to surrender to overpowering numbers. National loss by the affair was about three hundred--killed, wounded, and prisoners — of which an undue proportion were commissioned officers.--the bombardment of Fort Moultrie, S. C., was continued.
