From Tennessee.

--The Chattanooga Rebel says that fifteen of Col. Hawkins's mounted scouts and eight of Wharton's men crossed the Cumberland in seven miles of Nashville, near the city on the Gallatin pike, with a boldness that must have been bewildering, and routed a detachment of Abolitionists engaged in guarding stolen stock. They brought off two hundred and twelve mules, and re-swam the river in safety, without loss. The mules belonged to George D. Prentice, of the Louisville Journal, and were intended for the Government.

On the 14th inst., a detachment of Hawkins's scouts ambuscaded a party of Federal on the Lebanon pike, killing sixteen, capturing a number of horses and carbines, fifteen navies, some thirty splendid gum blankets, and various "Yankee notions," among them ten negroes, who have been given up to their owners. Another squad of Hawkins's men, under scouting orders to Gallatin, met a party of Dunderheaded Dutch, and bravely attack them. They killed three. One of the bodies proved to be that of Lieut.-Col. Carter, regiment not known.
