the map, why Bragg has chosen his present position. His right apparently rests upon Chickamauga, covering the East Tennessee and Georgia railroad, and a branch which connects Chattanooga with Dalton. He thus keeps open his communication with Longstreet, who is before Knoxville, 110 miles off, and with Georgia. The Chickamauga is in his front, and its banks afford, it is said, many strong, defensible positions. In the meantime, if, as our correspondent said on Saturday, Sherman be advancing to cut off Longstreet, not having possession of the railroad, he will have a heavy time of it in this terrible weather. The rainy season seems to have set in very decidedly. If all things turn out as they usually do, we shall have very little more campaigning until May next. The mud is the only ally we have, and it is a most formidable one. The Yankees evidently dread it, and the certainty of its near advent was one of the causes why their newspapers urged a general advance so furiously

bove the mouth of the Chickamauga.--Some infantry have also been landed on the east side of that stream — the remainder and much the more numerous body on the west side — all up the Tennessee and some distance above our right wing. This movement greatly endangers the depot and railroad, and furnishes an additional reason for withdrawing across the Chickamauga. Another danger, and a still more serious one, is the probability that Grant will turn our right and get between the main army and Longstreet at Knoxville. It is now well ascertained that Sherman has not gone to the relief of Burnside, as was fully believed a few days ago; but the whole Federal army is here marshalling for our destruction. Perhaps Grant has concluded that he could best succor Burnside by forcing Bragg to retire. I have just heard that our communications with Knoxville have been cut, probably by the Federal cavalry that crossed the river above this afternoon, and that the depot buildings at Joyner's Statio
command and moved in the direction of Marysville. Whilst on the march the distant booming of Longstreet's guns came rumbling to our ears. Thrice welcome was the sound. We were soon en route fowell consumed in crossing the river. By 10 o'clock of the 18th we had received orders from Gen. Longstreet and were put in position by Gen. Wheeler. The fun was over with before we could cross the and near Campbell's Station; also, at a small village, a mile east of C. S. But the opening of Longstreet's guns silenced their batteries, and the advance of his columns of infantry started the gentlesing the rear guard. He bid "good morning" to the family, with the remark: "That he formed Gen. Longstreet's acquaintance on the Potomac, and did not wish to meet him that morning, and that he woulde went, in a double quick! and retired behind his line of fortifications near Knoxville. Longstreet soon hemmed the old tyrant in the city, with but few supplies for his thieving bands. But the
