From East Tennessee. Dalton, Dec. 5. --Seven Yankee prisoners, captured near Cleveland by a squad under Captain Rhodes, of Wharton's cavalry, were brought here to-day. Two of them formed a part of a guard with dispatches from Gen. Sherman. Captain E. also captured two wagons, six horses, and four mules, but the enemy's reinforcements coming up he had to destroy the wagons. Union citizens reported three or four Yankee regiments encamped near Cleveland, but some of Captain Rhones's men who came through the town saw nothing of them.--Heavy firing was heard yesterday in the direction of Athens, Tenn., which was supposed to be an engagement between Wheelers cavalry and the enemy.

Murphy, inspector General; Major Henry G. Peyton, Assistant Inspector General; Major C. Marshall is his Private Secretary; and Majors C. S. Venable and W. H. Taylor are his Aids. There has been for some time past a system of highway robbery going on in the lines of this army. To such an extent has it been carried that furloughed soldiers have found it necessary to go armed and in squads from the lower parts of the lines to the nearest depot. A few days since details were made from different corps of sharpshooters and sent out to look after the robbers. A squad came up with some suspicions characters, and an exciting race ensued; one man was captured, taken before Gen. Rhodes, and committed for trial. The sutlers are moving to the front in "droves," and are literally "coining" Confederate money by their sales. X.

in flanked his left, when he called for a few men from this number and formed a skirmish line in front of their advancing column. This he did a second time, until the enemy drove them back to the field, and the remnant that he had rallied were compelled to retreat. The disaster was caused by the lack of troops.--The enemy's line extending some half a mile to the left of ours, we were easily flanked, and compelled to fall back. It is said that ten thousand fresh troops from Winchester joined the enemy in the interval between the two fights. We brought off all our prisoners and many of the wagons in the morning. General Ramseur was severely wounded through the body, and fell in the hands of the enemy. Of officers we lost very few; but this loss falls very heavy upon that division, which had so lately lost their beloved General Rhodes. I cannot now give much account of casualties, as I have been able to learn of but few. I suppose I can do so soon. Asa Tennet.
were busy preparing breakfast, and when but very few of them had eaten, orders came for us to move at once. This movement was necessary because of the advance of the Yankee cavalry. They came as far as Meems's farm, this side of Mount Jackson. Rhodes's division moved in front, and charged down Rudd's hill — at the same time with the First Virginia cavalry--upon them, now this side of Rudd's house, just at the foot of the hill. They were at once driven back upon the bottom; and very soon our dth, surrounded on both sides by forks of the Shenandoah river. In the flat were several regiments of Yankee cavalry, and advancing upon them, our cavalry was seen on the left, and our skirmish line stretching across the bottom. Behind this was Rhodes's division; next came a second line of battle, presenting so formidable an aspect that the Yankees left quite hurriedly. This was a movement of reconnaissance, and they succeeded in "finding Mr. Early." We had large droves of cattle grazing upon
and without a bottom, and is as inseparable as that which separated Dives from Lazarus. The mute objects of nature; our desecrated churches and altars; our sweet valleys, drenched in blood and charred by fire, forbid it. The dead would cry out against it from their gory beds. The blood of my own sons, yet unavenged, cries to Heaven from the ground for vengeance. The thousands who are resting red in their graves would awake and utter their solemn protest.--Stonewall Jackson, Polk, Stuart, Rhodes, Morgan, Preston, Smith, and thousands over whose remains a monument to the unknown dead shall be raised, are speaking in tones of thunder against it; and can it be the living only will be dumb? Sir, those who have died in this war are not dead to us. "'E'en in their ashes live their wonted fires.' "They are, in the light of their example, more valuable than the living.--Their spirits walk abroad and stir the hearts of living men to do or die in the cause of liberty. We cherish
jects of two fine paintings, which are to be raffled, on Christmas night, at the Ladies' Fair at the Union Hill Methodist Church. The former is by Captain Cox, of General Lee's staff; and both are represented to be very fine. It is related that Rhodes's division, being cut off from the remainder of his corps on the 11th of May, 1864, General Lee appeared before Gordon's men, and taking their banner in his hand, said to them: "Men, that point must be carried. Rhodes is cut off, and we must getRhodes is cut off, and we must get him out! I'll lead you myself!" One of the men stepped out from the ranks and implored the General to stay back, representing to him that his life was too dear to his soldiers and his countrymen to be thrown away. The old Chieftain was led off by one of his staff officers, with tears in his eyes. The charge was led by Gordon. The history of it and its results is familiar to every one, and affords one of the most brilliant records of the war. This is the scene represented in the paintin
Garroted. --Michael Hunt, a citizen, while returning home on Thursday night, about 11 o'clock, was set upon by two men, whose purpose it was to rob him; but before the rascals succeeded in their designs, policemen Rhodes and Morris, who happened to hear Mike's cries for help, ran to his assistance just in time to arrest the highwaymen as they were in the act of fleecing his pockets. The names of the robbers are John Carroll and Cyrus McConway, both members of the Twenty-fourth Massachusetts Infantry, Company "C." They were assigned quarters at Major Claiborne's Old Market Inn.
