The Daily Dispatch: August 31, 1863., [Electronic resource], The advance of Rosecrans — a battle Imminent — Burnside advancing on Knoxville. (search)
if let alone, have the bridge ready for cars to pass over in a week or two. We further learn that the Yanks made an attempt on Monday to cross the river at Harrison, above Chattanooga some 20 miles, but were repulsed after a brisk fight of several hours. Their object, no doubt, is to strike the State road at Chickamauga and Ringgold, as well as flank Bragg on his right by crossing at Harrison, and to come on his left flank by their forces from Bridgeport. From their having been repulsed at Harrison and not repulsed at Bridgeport, it would seem to be Bragg's plan to allow them to cross at the latter place and give them battle when they come away froHarrison and not repulsed at Bridgeport, it would seem to be Bragg's plan to allow them to cross at the latter place and give them battle when they come away from the river, but to prevent their crossing above. We feel confident that a great battle will come off near Chattanooga in a few days, and we feel confident of a great victory.

For a few days feints were made at Harrison, 20 miles above Chattanooga, and below, at Bridgeport. By the 26th the enemy had crossed at Bridgeport, the small force then at that point falling back, and Chattanooga having been evacuated by the citizens. The enemy's movements were slow and cautious; and at length they passed down Will's Valley, through Dade county, Ga., in considerable force to flank Bragg's army on the left, by way of Rome, and the cavalry reached Alpine, in Chattanooga county, Ga., on the Alabama line, twenty-eight

The condition of affairs below De Soto are unknown. Later. The mail agent of the Southwest Branch railroad arrived to-night. He reports that General Ewing reached Harrison's station about 10 o'clock last night, closely pursued by the enemy. Fighting has been going on, but the result is unknown. The road is cut this side of Harrison, and the towns of Cuba and Bourbon are burning, Harrison being between these two towns. The supposition is that the road is cut both sides of that point, severing communication with both St. Louis and Rolla. Escaped prisoners who arrived at De Soto to-day report that Pilot Knob is still held by the rebels, but their numbers and probable movements are not known. It is understood that a portion of General Smith's force starts for Franklin, the intersection of the Pacific and Southw
