12,000 men, from the Potomac — time to march up from Shellmound and take position in the valley late in the afternoon of the 30th. During the following night Gen. Jenkins was ordered by Gen. Longstreet to make a night attack, not upon the forces at the ferry, but upon the reinforcements that had come up from below and gone into camp two miles from the ferry.--Jenkins's command consisted of Hood's division, except Anderson's brigade. Three brigades — Benning's, Lane's, and Robertson's — were ordered to hold the forces at the ferry in check, whilst Jenkins with his own brigade, assaulted Hooker's column below. The attack failed, being badly planned and maJenkins with his own brigade, assaulted Hooker's column below. The attack failed, being badly planned and made by an insufficient force. Thus the enemy got possession of Lookout Valley, the railroad, and the river from Brown's Ferry down to Bridgeport; and thus all doubt was removed as to his ability to subsist his forces in Chattanooga during the winter. The occupation of the ferry was the turning point in this part of the campaig<

omplain that passports and licenses to conduct business are denied them, and praying for relief. He presented a resolution of inquiry for permitting them to obtain passports to leave the country. Mr. Haskins said these very persons pretended to be poor whilst amongst us, but they had carried millions from the Confederacy. The resolution was finally agreed to. On motion of Mr. Hill the sum of $500 was voted to Judge Wm. H. Lyons. The Council then proceeded with the election of city officers, resulting as follows: All the old day policemen were re-elected. W. R. Granger and Wm. S. Jenkins were elected additional policemen, to be stationed one at each of the markets. A. W. Morton was re-elected Chamberlain. Thomas R. Harrison, Auditor; and Washington Gill, City Engineer, 1st Lieutenant Night Watch. L. M. Carter, 2d Lieut, Night Watch, T. C. Baptist; 3d Lieut, Night Watch, A. R. Cousins.

virtues so much affected the prisoner that he burst into tears and wept copiously till the rendition of the Mayor's decision, and he was ordered back to the criminals' box. Sydenham, slave of John Purcell, was charged with resisting officer Wm. S. Jenkins on Monday afternoon, while in the discharge of his official duty as superintendent of dog catching. The prisoner's dog was unfortunate enough to become entangled in the meshes of a large not which the negro attendants were carrying with them, which so much excited his compassion that he immediately rushed in, and, raising the horrid trap, set the animal at liberty. For this offence he was taken in custody by Mr. Jenkins, but offered so much resistance that officer Adams had to be called on to assist in carrying him to the watch house. The Mayor ordered Sydenham to be whipped. The charge preferred against Alexander, slave of Ann Newton, of stealing a vest from Thomas Boyd, was not sustained, and he was therefore discharg
k coats, one blue cloth military jacket, two military caps, one blue satin scarf, a gold button, and fifteen linen collars, supposed to have been stolen. Officer Wm. S. Jenkins, while searching Van Amburg's room, on Thursday night, for a lot of bacon which was stolen the night before from Mr. Downey's store, found the articles above enumerated, and not believing that they were honestly obtained, he took them in charge and carried the negro to the watch-house. Jenkins also found upon the person of Van Amburg a sliver watch, with a magnificent gold chain appended thereto, a sum of money, and a large bowie-knife and horse pistol by the side of the bed. When ut first requiring permission from his master to do so. In an adjoining room to Van Amburg's, occupied by a negro named Spencer, slave of Mrs. Mary Hill, officer Jenkins found a lot of Government bags, two new felt hats, and a large lot of musket caps, cartridges, and powder, the possession of which could not be accounted for.
Arrested. --Officer William S. Jenkins arrested yesterday afternoon, two negroes, named George, slave to Mrs. Timberlake, and Joe, the property of Mrs. Dimmock, charged with robbing Mr. A. B. Small of $892 in money, one pair of pants and two pairs of shoes. Mr. Small was asleep Tuesday night in the Transportation office, on the corner of Ninth and Broad streets, and as George and Joe were on the premises during the night, suspicion pointed to them as the thieves. They will have a hearing before the Mayor this morning. Morris Kaufman, holding foreign protection papers, was arrested yesterday afternoon by officer Crone with a roll of leather in his possession, valued at five hundred dollars, stolen from George W. Bluford. He was committed to the lower watch-house.
Court on the charge of desertion and lascivious and lewd association with each other. Henry M. Jones was again present to answer the charge of feloniously obtaining, under false pretences, three thousand six hundred dollars from William B. Cook, for the purchase of a negro, named Jim, sold to him by Jones as his property, when the said negro did not rightfully belong to him. No further progress was made in the examination, and the case was therefore continued for ten days longer. Joseph and Rachel Leinburg, white, charged with stealing three pairs of shoes from Jacob Huffman, were discharged. The shoes were, however, surrendered to Huffman. Julia, slave of Sarah Gamble, charged with using insulting and provoking language towards Reuben T. Seal and William S. Jenkins, officers of the day police, was ordered to be whipped. The Mayor desires attention to be called to the change of hour of meeting of the court. It will hereafter assemble at 9 o'clock instead of 10.
Charged with stealing. --Officers Charles H. Moore and William S. Jenkins arrested yesterday a white woman, named Jane Bossieux, charged with the theft of a large quantity of ladies' silk dress patterns, hose, cotton goods, &c. About four months since, the residence of J. E. Wadsworth was entered and robbed, the perpetrators leaving no clue behind by which they could be identified. On Saturday last, some of the stolen goods were discovered in a small shop in Screamersville, owned by a German named Crews, who stated that he had received them from Jane Bossieux, in pawn for certain funds advanced. Subsequent to the arrest of the accused, Officer Moore obtained from Crews a handsome green silk dress pattern, one piece of brilliant and a lot of ladies' hose, all of which were fully identified by Mr. Wadsworth as part of the articles which had been stolen from his residence. The matter will be investigated before the Mayor this morning.
