From General Bragg's army.[from our own correspondent.] Lookout Mountain, Sept. 30. No change has taken place in the situation of affairs since the date of my last letter, except in the exta, and of our own. The town is completely invested on the South side of the Tennessee river by Gen. Bragg's forces.

Bragg; for the high hill in rear of the town gives the former a full view of our position, and there Lieut. Gen. Polk and Major-Gen. Hindman have been relieved of their commands by order of Gen Bragg for alleged disobedience of orders. It is reported that Gen.

The enemy replied briskly from Moccasin Point to our mortars on Lookout, and feebly from the star fort and casemated fort. The firing still continues. It is reported that General Wheeler has captured and burned five hundred wagons belonging to the enemy. [second Dispatch.] Missionary Ridge, via Chickamauga, October 6.--The Tennessee river is rising rapidly. It has swept away the lower pontoon bridge of the enemy and submerged the trestle bridge. Prisoners and deserters confirm the capture of the enemy's wagon train by Gen. Wheeler. Major S. P. Mitchell, Chief Quartermaster of Gen. Longstreet's corps, died last night of diphtheria. Colonel Joe Lewis, of the Sixth Kentucky regiment, has been appointed
