Heavy skirmishing near Chattanooga — the enemy Moving.

Atlanta, Oct. 30.
--No news reports from above by telegraph. The following has been received by mail:

‘ "Missionary Ridge, Oct. 29.--The enemy have crossed a division at Brown's Ferry, three miles below Chattanooga, and are in possession of Raccoon Mountain, which they are apparently fortifying. A rapid shelling of our camps on the west side of Lookout Mountain was kept up by the enemy to-day, our batteries replying. No casualties reported. Heavy skirmishing anticipated on our left."

’ A special dispatch to the Intelligencer, of the same date, says: ‘ "Two divisions, Howard's and Hooker's, came down yesterday from Bridgeport to Lookout Vally, and were joined by Granger's corps last night, which crossed at Brown's Ferry, three miles below Chattanooga. Jenkins's division attacked the enemy at 2 o'clock this morning, and captured a number of wagons and twenty-five prisoners. The enemy now occupy the west side of Lookout Creek, and Longstreet's forces the east side."’
