From east Tennessee.

Russellville, Jan. 6.
--The fighting last week was altogether with cavalry on our side. Col. Crow, of Morgan's division, attacked the enemy near Dandridge, and captured a battery, with the exception of one gun, which was afterwards recaptured, but the enemy were driven back to their entrenchments at Mossy creek. Maj. Ball, of the 6th Georgia, was killed in an engagement on the 29th. Gen. Martin's entire cavalry attacked a superior force of the enemy at Talbot's Station, and after a stubborn resistance, drove them back four miles.

They were reinforced by a division of infantry, which drove Martin back, with considerable loss. The enemy remain at Mossy creek, strongly entrenched.

The railroad will be in running order to Bristol in a few days.
