(Press Dispatches.)

Atlanta, Nov. 28.
--Gen. Bragg's headquarters, at last accounts, were at Ringgold. The enemy seem disposed to push the advantage they have gained energetically, and the battle is likely to be resumed in a day or two between Ringgold and Dalton.

The spireme of the three days battle is: the enemy gained what be fought for — Lookout Mountain — and the left wing of both armies badly whipped. Our loss on the left wing was more than counterbalanced by gains on our right. We lost Slecomb's, Cobb's, and Massengill's artillery on our left, and captured all of Sherman's horses on our right.

A good many field and regimental officers are arriving, wounded.

Great fears for Longstreet's safety are felt. Three thousand of the enemy are advancing towards Knoxville from Cleveland. Fighting was reported at Kingston last week between our cavalry and the Yankees.

Gen. Wheeler was ordered to Kingston last Monday. Next day firing was heard at London, in the direction of Kingston.

[second Dispatch.]

Atlanta, Nov. 28.
--The train this evening came from Daiton, bringing the sick and wounded troops. Our forces are still falling back, sternly followed by the enemy, and firing was going on all day yesterday.

The wires have been down nearly all day, but this afternoon have been working to Tunnel Hill.
