e may add, in this connection, that it would not surprise us if the next general engagement is fought upon the Kingston Plains. We hear of shelling on yesterday from our batteries on Lookout. The enemy are suffering extremely from the want of firewood. ss The Atlanta Register, of the 24th, has the following relative to affairs in East Tennessee: We are advised that Burnside, with twelve or fifteen thousand men, is now cooped up at Knoxville. The place is strongly fortified. Gen. Buckner had begun a system of earthworks, which the Federals have perfected, before, under the orders of Gen. Bragg, he abandoned the city. We learn that before Longstreet had reached Knoxville, Burnside had gathered there a large supply of corn and wheat, and that two mills of the city have been for some time past constantly used in the production of flour and meal.

Bragg quickly put a stop to this, and thereupon Buckner addressed him a note asking him by what right he undertook to revoke the President's order consat said department was dissolved because it had been occupied by the enemy. "At the same rate," Buckner answered, "the department of Middle Tennessee is dissolved for a similar reason, and you, Generction, should report to me, as I have access to more of my original territory than you have to yours.
