Latest from the North.Baltimore papers of Saturday, the 10th inst., have been received. The following is the latest intelligence:
Gen. Rosecrans's headquarters, dated 6th inst., says that no one was injured by the rebel batteries on the previous day, and the men continued their work as usual. A telegram dated Nashville, 8th inst., says rumors prevail that the rebel cavalry have captured and entirely destroyed Shelbyville, Tenn., taking the forces there prisoners. The latest Chattanooga advices say all is quiet, and there is no appearance of an attack. The Nashville correspondent of the Philadelphia Inquirer says that Burnside, with two corps, holds a position the value of which is hardly known yet. When the enemy is thrown back upon the Virginia and East Tennessee Railroad, he will be ready to finish Gen. Rosecrans's work. Gen. McPherson is advancing from the West by one route, while Gen. Sherman, with the 13th army corps, is moving up by a shorter and better one. Two corps, under Howard and Slocum, are moving right up the --country, under direction of Gen. Joseph Hooker. A movement has been made which will insure our possession of the railroad to Richmond east of Knoxville, so as to prevent any possible flank attack of the rebels upon Gen. Burnside, or a recapture of Cumberland Gap. New York, Oct. 8 --A special dispatch to the World, from Cincinnati, says that correspondents with the army report that Gen. Rosecrans's army is in a perfectly safe condition. More reinforcements are near, and troops are constantly arriving from the West and elsewhere. The rebel cavalry cannot seriously interfere with Gen. Rosecrans's supplies. A great battle must soon be fought, and confidence is expressed in the final issue. Nashville, 6">Oct. 6 --The Press denies the burning of the bridge over Stewart's creek by the rebels. It says that Wheeler crossed the river at Washington last Thursday morning, thirteen miles above Chattanooga, and passed down the Sequatchie valley. The rebels captured fifty wagons of one of our trains at the foot of the mountains, near Anderson's Cross-roads, burning a number of them, and killing about 300 horses and mules. The train was ladened with ammunition, clothing, and notions. Forty wagons carrying medical and sanitary stores and about fifty sutlers' teams were also lost.--Gen. Mitchell, with a force of Union cavalry, as soon as he learned of the crossing of the rebels, pursued them, and on Friday and Saturday killed and wounded 70 and took 200 prisoners and recaptured 250 mules. On reaching Walnut Range the rebels shot 200 mules to prevent their falling into our hands. Louisville, October 8th.--As previously stated, four or five thousand rebel cavalry, under Wheeler, with artillery, attacked McMinnville Saturday afternoon, capturing the town and garrison, consisting of the Fourth Tennessee infantry. Our forces were with out artillery and the town without defences or fortifications. The rebels burned a train of cars and destroyed the railroad and telegraph. They are believed to be advancing on Manchester. Several prominent Union men are supposed to have been captured. Part of the same force destroyed a train of two hundred wagons on Friday between Bridgeport and Chattanooga, and captured an ammunition train of twelve wagons. Portions of rebel cavalry are scattered along the road near the south of Murfreesboro', designing to destroy the railroad and telegraph communication, capturing stockades, &c. Our troops are closely pursuing them. The rebels have fortified the mountain side opposite Bridgeport, and on Saturday threw a few shell at the workmen engaged in repairing railroad bridges across the river. Our pickets occupy the island in front of Bridgeport, and constantly exchanged shots with the rebel pickets. Small bands of rebels are hovering about the railroad from Nashville to the front, but such measures have been taken that they will not succeed in effecting any important damage to our communications. The severe beating given them on Saturday, at Murfreesboro', by Col. McCook, will probably end all attempts of the kind for the present. All points on the line of communication are now guarded by a force sufficient to repel any attack. There is every reason to believe that the present position of Rosecrans is impregnable.
