re able to bear removal. About twenty-five hundred remain in field hospitals, who are too severely injured to endure transportation. A staff officer who left the lines yesterday afternoon reports that a flag of truce had been sent in by Gen. Rosecrans. After considerable correspondence Gen. Bragg. consented to an exchange of the wounded. They have about 600 Confederates and we have 5,000 Yankees. The exchange is conditional. There is no change in the condition of affairs in front 0 Yankees. The exchange is conditional. There is no change in the condition of affairs in front of Chattanooga. Rosecrans receives his supplies by wagon trains from Stevenson. A report reached Dalten yesterday that Gen. Sam. Jones had occupied Knoxville, and that Burnside had retested towards Cumberland Gap. These reports are credited in official circles. Major Rice raves, Chief of Artillery of Gen. Breckinridge's Division, died on Sunday from wounds received at Chickamauga.

East Tennessee. --If Rosecrans is compelled to carry his supplies all the way from Stevenson to Chattanooga, in wagons, we should think that his situation was very precarious. From Stevenson to Chattanooga the distance is, by the railroad, thirty-seven miles. Stevenson is just over the river, and but a short distance from Brtry, which is traversed by no turnpike.--The roads are horribly rough mountain roads, and the distance can be very little short of fifty miles. This necessity of Rosecrans to carry his supplies such a distance by the common roads of the country, and in wagons, confirms the truth of the telegram published by us the other day to the we can judge of the relative situation of the two armies, from the meagre information afforded by the telegraph, that of Bragg seems to be encouraging — that of Rosecrans gravely critical. The Yankees, however, are making prodigious efforts to reinforce the latter, having already dispatched two corps from Meade's army and large nu

In commenting upon the failure of Rosecrans's Georgia campaign, the New York Herald revealed the fact that it was undertaken for the purpose of seizing several hundred thousand bales of cotton known to exi are lively hopes of a general crash, and when her financial bubble shall have exploded, what is Yankeedom to do.? Fourth and lastly. In order to reinforce Rosecrans, the Yankees are compelled to take heavy detachments from the army of Meade at the very time when that officer is expected to make a fresh "on to Richmond," and . If the Yankees have the overwhelming force of which they boast, why is it necessary to deplete one army in order to strengthen another? In order to reinforce Rosecrans, also, they are stripping the whole lower country of troops, thereby exposing it to reoccupation by our troops. Why all this, if they have the hosts they preten
utiful region of country he related one in explanation of the meaning of the word "Chickamauga," and how it came to be applied to the two small streams which bear this name. A tribe of Cherokees occupied this region, and when the small-pox was first communicated to the Indians of this continent it appeared in this tribe, and made frightful havoc among them. It was the custom of the Indians, at the height of this disease, to go, by scores, and jump into the river to allay the tormenting symptoms. This, of course, increased the mortality, and the name "Chickamauga." or "River of Death" was applied to the two streams, which they have borne ever since. The remnant of the tribe was also afterwards called the "Chickamauga tribe." We hope Gen Bragg will call his great victory the Battle of Chickamauga, and not "Peavine Creek" or "Crawfish Springs," as is suggested in Rosecrans's dispatch. He has certainly crawfished out of Georgia; but we prefer "Chickamauga," or the "River of Death."
