The Yankee force is reported to be some 20,000 strong, and one report — not bet they got three operatives, but this is doubtful. It is said that the force of the enemy operating in that region is not Burnside's command, but bushwhackers and sharpshooters under Carter, composed of Union men of East Tennessee, and that Buckner with his command was absent from Knoxville, which being known to these gentry they took advantage of the situation to make a descent. upon that place.
