2,000. If Gen. Longstreet had been able to remain around Knoxville a week longer the enemy would have capitulated, as they were almost out of ammunition and subsistence. At the time of the siege the Federals went around at night and pressed everybody, bond and free, (barber-shop negroes as well as white men,) making them get out of their beds to work on their fortifications. Gen. Foster's headquarters are at the residence of Col. John H. Crozier. Old Col. Wm. Heiskell, brother of Fred. Heiskell, is the local agent of the United States custom department. He ran for Congress several years since against Hon. S. A. Smith. He has always been considered a Lincolnites and tory. The Federals declare that they intend to hold Knoxville until the end of time. A letter from a lady in Knoxville, dated Dec. 21, states: It was a great disappointment to all that Longstreet did not take Knoxville. The Yankees say that Knoxville is more strongly fortified than Vicksburg ever was.
