The situation at Chattanooga. Northern view of Rosecrans's Weak points--the Dangers which Threaten him — Bragg's Opportunities, &c. The position at Chattanooga now commands the almost undivided attention of both the nations engaged in this war. Affairs elsewhere hardly occupy a thought. The prompt removal of Rosecrans, hitherto a successful commander, for his defeat, shows what importance the Federals attach to the situation there. The Chattanooga correspondent of the New York Tribune (of the 24th) writes a highly interesting letter, which we copy. It gives a very gloomy view of the Yankee position: I have already demonstrated in former letters that while Chattanooga is a strategically important point, it is not a safe one. To hold it securely involves the necessity of holding the Tennessee river for fifty miles to the right and left of it.--As soon as our army had crossed at Bellefonte, Stevenson, and Bridgeport, it was virtually master of the place. Fo
The waste Lands are being employed in some of the departments, and perform the duties equally as well as sounder men, who are young enough to take their turns in the field. If cripples and non- conscripts were generally employed, Gen. Bragg would soon have a reinforcement of 50,000 men.
e or both of his eyes to have been able to compass that desirable end. The question recurs, why upon earth did he not stop, while he was running, long enough for Lee to catch up with him? The movements of Lee have evidently damaged the Yankees enormously. He took about three thousand prisoners and a large number of horses, broke up the roads, and spoilt their campaign completely. Indeed, under his teaching, they have learned that is not the way to Richmond. The south side of James river, it seems, is the only true route, perhaps because it has not yet been tried. But, first of all, Meade is to get behind his works at Washington, and send off large reinforcements to Tennessee, to finish up things in that quarter. Then the whole combined force is to march upon Richmond by the south side. Such is the programme now, involving the small affair of destroying Bragg's army before it can be carried out. But Yankee Doodle never estimates little difficulties of that kind upon paper.
ch infantry as had distinguished themselves to be put in their places. It is believed that the adoption of a similar practice in our Western army might have beneficial effects. At all events, a Legion of Honor, composed of the bravest of the brave, would soon become as famous as the Imperial Guard of France, and perhaps decide the fate of every important field. In this connection we regret to see some dissatisfaction expressed at the manner in which the officers and soldiers sent by Gen. Bragg with the colors captured in his great victory were received in this city. It is said that these gallant men, whose conduct in the field had attracted honorable mention in the reports of their commanders, and who bore with them trophies which in any other nation would have secured them an ovation, were scarcely noticed upon their arrival here, the flags carelessly thrown into a wagon, driven off by a negro, and the representatives of the heroes of Chickamauga permitted to depart without an
