From the Southwest. Atlanta, Ga., Sept. 30. --Trains have arrived here from Chickamauga station bringing such of our wounded as are able to bear removal. About twenty-five hundred remain in field hospitals, who are too severely injured to endure transportation. A staff officer who left the lines yesterday afternoon reports that a flag of truce had been sent in by Gen. Rosecrans. After considerable correspondence Gen. Bragg. consented to an exchange of the wounded. They have about 600 Confederates and we have 5,000 Yankees. The exchange is conditional. There is no change in the condition of affairs in front of Chattanooga. Rosecrans receives his supplies by wagon trains from Stevenson. A report reached Dalten yesterday that Gen. Sam. Jones had occupied Knoxville, and that Burnside had retested towards Cumberland Gap. These reports are credited in official circles. Major Rice raves, Chief of Artillery of Gen. Breckinridge's Division, died on Sunday fr
utiful region of country he related one in explanation of the meaning of the word "Chickamauga," and how it came to be applied to the two small streams which bear this name. A tribe of Cherokees occupied this region, and when the small-pox was first communicated to the Indians of this continent it appeared in this tribe, and made frightful havoc among them. It was the custom of the Indians, at the height of this disease, to go, by scores, and jump into the river to allay the tormenting symptoms. This, of course, increased the mortality, and the name "Chickamauga." or "River of Death" was applied to the two streams, which they have borne ever since. The remnant of the tribe was also afterwards called the "Chickamauga tribe." We hope Gen Bragg will call his great victory the Battle of Chickamauga, and not "Peavine Creek" or "Crawfish Springs," as is suggested in Rosecrans's dispatch. He has certainly crawfished out of Georgia; but we prefer "Chickamauga," or the "River of Death."

opposite to the city on the North side.--The city is built on the toe of the horse shoe. The distance across the opening of the horse shoe does not appear to be more than half a mile, offering a splendid opportunity for a strong body of troops to seize and fortify it. Twenty thousand men there could keep off five times their number, there being no room for a larger force to deploy. Upon the whole, as far as we can judge of the relative situation of the two armies, from the meagre information afforded by the telegraph, that of Bragg seems to be encouraging — that of Rosecrans gravely critical. The Yankees, however, are making prodigious efforts to reinforce the latter, having already dispatched two corps from Meade's army and large numbers of troops from Vicksburg and other Southern points. The report that Knoxville had been taken by Gen. Sam. Jones, and that Burnside had retreated towards Cumberland Gap, (alluded to in the telegram to-day,) seems not to be generally credited.
