my of the Cumberland, the concentration of a superior rebel force in East Tennessee is scarcely probable, but the rebels are exceedingly anxious to repossess themselves of that important region, the tame relinquishment of which they have never ceased to lament. Their most desperate efforts, it is believed, Gen. Burnside will be enabled to thwart. The main army is where it was when the attack was made on Rogersville, in an impregnable position and in good spirits, subject to the orders of Gen. Grant, who is well satisfied with its situation.

Rosecrans, their military idol, has been dashed to pieces, and Grant will encounter his fate, if the Army of the West, sustained by the majesty of their cause, and the benediction of Providence, puts forth one mighty and consolidated effort for the deliverance of the land.
From Northern Georgia. Atlanta, Nov. 13. --Nothing from the front this morning. A party of Georgia State troops and Indians killed the notorious Bryson and thirty four of his men, a short time since, on the line between Georgia and North Carolina.
