--The Chattanooga Rebel,
of Thursday last, says the situation in Tennessee
improves at an amazing rate.
Troops that have been sent to reinforce Gen. Johnston
are being sent back to the Grand
Army of Middle Tennessee.
Our advices from Mississippi
, says the Rebel,
are of the most cheering character, yet we are at a loss to comprehend why General Johnston
should have sent Gen. Breckinridge
's corps back to Middle Tennessee
He must be in a secure condition, either from his position or from an abundance of troops.
Our dispatches state that Grant
is being heavily reinforced, but no fears need be entertained on that score, as Gen. Johnston
has received the very flower of our noble armies.
From the front various rumors come up — all of them foreshadowing an early advance of our forces.
Let us "clear the decks and prepare for action."
