Movements of the enemy in East Tennessee.

Dalton, Dec. 7.
--The Yankee prisoners captured near Charleston and Cleveland reached here to-day. Six of them comprised a picket of the enemy's rear guard. Our troops passed through Cleveland twelve hours after the enemy's supply trains, which was twelve miles in rear of their army. Two of the enemy's corps had passed through Cleveland and Georgetown, en route for Knoxville. Their advance had reached Loudoun. Reports from Knoxville are conflicting. The enemy are laying waste the country in their line of march.

[second Dispatch.]

Dalton, Dec. 8.
--The enemy's cavalry appeared yesterday at Ringgold; but being attacked by our forces under Col. Grigsby, were routed and driven a mile beyond the town. No casualties on our side.
