From the army of Tennessee.

Dalton, Feb. 25.
--Our army is in line of battle at Tunnel Hill. There was a sharp engagement yesterday between Clayton's brigade and the enemy, lasting half the day.

Wolford's cavalry, backed by a regiment of infantry, attacked our line, and were repulsed three times. A hundred Yankee saddles were emptied. In the first assault our ten-inch rifled Parrott did great execution.

One cavalry and two infantry brigades of Yankees are at Lafayette.


[second Dispatch.]

Dalton, Feb. 25, P. M.
--There has been heavy artillery skirmishing along the lines all day, with occasional volleys of musketry. Both sides are evidently manœuvering for position. Casualties trifling.


[third Dispatch.]

Dalton, Feb. 26.
--The enemy have disappeared from our front, retreating towards Chattanooga. Wheeler is in pursuit. A dispatch from him, three miles this side of Ringgold, announces the capture of several prisoners. The Yankee force is commanded by Gen. Palmer.
