in the direction of Mercersburg were at McConnellsburg, going towards Hancock. The Confederates are paroling all the citizens. Fresh troops are arriving at Harrisburg, but not so rapidly as the State authorities wish. Vicksburg telegrams to the 15th state that no change had taken place in the position of the lines. Everything useful has been destroyed in the country around for thirty miles. The rebels are believed to be erecting an interior line of works. The superintendent of contrabands is making arrangements to withdraw to a safe place the large number of negroes collected there. Murfreesboro', June 18.--Bragg has received three brigades of reinforcements, and now has eighteen brigades of infantry and cavalry. The indications are that he is about to assume the offensive and invade Kentucky. Buckner is organizing a large force in East Tennessee for offensive operations, and the Union men, in despair of reaping their wheat, have turned their stock into the fields.
all the out- buildings and the residence of the owners, and tore up the track for several miles. The 54th Virginia regiment, which had been stationed there, had just left that morning for Knoxville, and the place was therefore defenceless. They told two citizens, whom they captured there, that they were going on to burn Knoxville. The result of their going on is given in the telegraphic dispatches. The raid came just as the section of country South of London had been transferred from Gen. Buckner's department to that of Gen. Jackson, at Chattanooga, and in the movement or troops consequent on the change several places were left undefended, which would not have been the case if the transfer had taken place a few days later or earlier. It will be seen from the telegrams that after their repulse at Knoxville the Yankees came as far east as Morristown, on the East Tennessee and Virginia Railroad, which is 88 miles from Bristol. There, it appears, they were likely to come to grie
: Headquarters, Tullahoma, Tenn., July 1. --I telegraphed you on Monday the occupation of Shelbyville and Manchester. On Monday it rained hard all day, rendering the roads impassable. It was found impossible to move our artillery or get our troops into position until this morning, when a general advance was ordered at daylight. Gen. Thomas yesterday made a reconnaissance on two roads, and Gen. McCock on one road, reporting the enemy in force at this place, with the addition of Buckner a division, which arrived Monday evening. On advancing this morning it was found that the enemy had fled in haste last night, much demoralized. Their strong fortifications, a small quantity of stores, and three siege guns in our possession. They took the direction of Winchester.--Gen. Thomas should be on their right flank to night. Gena. Sheridan and Brennan marched into town to-day at 11½ o'clock, taking a few prisoners. W. S. Rosecrans, Major General. [A telegram from Atla
meeting: "That all male citizens between the ages of 18 and 45 be enrolled in companies for service if required and that all such who refuse shall be sent North." Gen. Boyle is determined to carry out this resolution vigorously, and the enrollment will immediately commence. We have the usual reports of the iniquitousness of Morgan's forces; but the reports are considered the fancies of an excited people. No considerable number of armed rebels are known to be near our city. Gen. Buckner's forces were crossing the Tennessee river, near Chattanooga, yesterday. Small squads of rebel cavalry are along the line of the Frankfort railroad. Another dispatch, dated Louisville, the 10th says that martial law was proclaimed in flat city on that day. Morgan was advancing on New Albany fifteen miles from Corydon, and the Federal under Gen. Hebeon were pursuing him. New Albany, threatened by this raid of Morgan's, is the largest city in Indiana, having a population of some

emy's trained troops and the substitution for them by others have been disappointed by the very error against which it was sought by warning to guard. Grant reached the river, got reinforcements, made entrenchments, and General Johnston continues to call for reinforcements, though his first requisition was more than filled by withdrawing troops from Generals Beauregard and Bragg. General Bragg is threatened with attack, has fallen back to his entrenched position at Tullahoma, and called on Buckner for aid. General Beauregard says that no troops have been with drawn by the enemy from his front since those returned to Newbern, and that his whole force is necessary to cover his line. This being in answer to a proposition to follow a movement of the enemy, said to be to the West, with all his disposable force, pointing him at the same time to the vital importance of holding the Mississippi, and communicating the fear that Vicksburg would fall unless Johnston was strongly and promptly re

we know that her defenders are about to illuminate our history by another chapter that will excite the admiration of the world. Her example will be invaluable to our people and a warning to the enemy, who will have a fearful admonition of terrible resistance they must continue to meet in their war of invasion and subjugation of the South. The Southwest is becoming again the theatre of interest. Rosecrans is said to be advancing upon Bragg; while in the West Burnside is pressing upon Buckner, who holds East Tennessee. This is probably all the better. The effect of our campaign beyond the Potomac and the loss of Vicksburg is that the enemy presses us, and it is when we are pressed that we achieve results worthy of the cause and the nation. The danger of too much success on our side has always been too much confidence and the relapsing into carelessness and apathy.--We grow listless, and our men pine in inactivity and die rapidly from camp diseases. Fewer would perish on the
ensating with imprisonment and chains. The order of Gen. Hill concerning hucksters in Bragg's army, has had the effect of reducing prices. Fruits, which used to sell at two dollars per dozen, can now be had at fifty cents per dozen. Loyal residents of East Tennessee are promptly responding to the President's last call for troops. The Federals have not ventured up the Tennessee river farther than Battle Creek. He will hardly come farther unless he comes in force. Major-General Buckner has issued an order closing all liquor establishments at Knoxville. The rumored reinforcement of the Federals at Bridgeport is untrue. Rosecrans was at Murfreesboro' on Tuesday, Aug, 22. The report that Stanton and Halleck have been at Winchester is unfounded. Two regiments of Federal cavalry and two regiments of infantry are at Dunlop, 25 miles from Chattanooga. Our Generals have paid Springfield Junction, ten miles North of Nashville, a visit. A lette
