Matters in East Tennessee.

Bristol, Dec. 9.
--Nothing definite from Gen. Longstreet to-day.

Gen. Giltner's brigade encountered the advance of Wilcox's corps, about 2,000 strong, near Maynardsville, Tenn., last Thursday, routing them completely and capturing a number of prisoners. The prisoners say that Wilcox's command is composed of raw troops.
