r has fallen at last on the Yankees themselves, and we have already seen how they relish it. The New York Herald, on the very day that the battle of Chickamauga commenced, gave us the programme of the Yankee Generals. Rosecrans was to crush Bragg and march to Atlanta. As soon as Meade heard of his success — which the Herald did not doubt — Meade, taking advantage of the terror it inspired, was to march upon Richmond. Well, Rosecrans was beaten very badly instead of crushing Bragg, and Bragg, and Meade, instead of advancing upon Richmond, detached three corps to reinforce him, and himself fell back, closely pursued by Lee. Now, if the Yankees had been in possession of such an overwhelming force as they would have the world believe, where was the necessity of robbing Meade to supply Rosecrans, when the former was committed to an operation not less important than that of which Rosecrans himself was the director?

They are strongly fortified like ourselves, each thinking it an unhealthy task to attempt to drive the other out of their entrenchments. We have heavy batteries of artillery posted on the h report is confirmed by an appeal recently made by Resecraus to the people of East Tennessee calling for assistance, and telling them that if they do not supply his army he will be compelled to give up that portion of the State to the Confederates. I have great confidence in Gen. Bragg, and believe that he will soon compel Rosecrans to evacuate Tennessee and Kentucky. His entire army would no doubt have been ruined in the late battle had bragg's orders been strictly and promptly obeyed.
