Yankee outrages in Tennessee.

Chattanooga, Aug. 4.
--McMinnville, Tenn., was occupied by about 7,000 Yankee troops last Saturday--probably Bull Nelson's division. A detachment of Gen. Forrest's cavalry was in the place Friday, but was smart enough to evade capture.

A man who run their lines from McMinnville states that be heard the shrieks of women from almost every house in the town. He thinks that the Yankee command must have been turned loose at will to pillage and outrage. The shrieks were agonizing.
