The battle at Lookout Mountain.further Particulars. [from our own Correspondent] Chickamauga, Nov. 25. --General Bragg abandoned Lookout Mountain last night, as no longer tenable or important, and massed his army on Missionary Ridge. Our right extended well up to the month of the Chickamauga, where the enemy had sent a heavy force. Gen. Hardee commanded the right wing, and Gen. Breckinridge the left. The battle commenced at ten, and became general by twelve o'clock. On the right Hardee repulsed the enemy's assault with great slaughter, capturing seven flags and some prisoners, but the enemy gained a ridge near our centre and enfiladed our lines. The men supposing that the enemy were successful elsewhere gave way on our left, when the Federals occupied that part of the ridge. Our whole army was withdrawn at night, and is now crossing the Chickamauga. There were no rails (?) by which to bring off our artillery, and in some cases several guns were lo
sterday. [second Dispatch.] Atlanta, Nov, 26. --The news from our army is conflicting. It is believed that our troops are still falling back. No train has arrived since this morning. Every preparation has been made in the hospitals here for our wounded, but none have yet arrived. The Intelligencer's correspondent, who has returned from the front, furnishes the following: The enemy, after a desperate and bloody struggle, gained Craven's House, on the northern slope of Lookout Mountain Walthall's brigade suffered severely, holding two divisions in check, and a large portion of it was captured. Stevenson's division occupied the crest of the mountain. The assault continued by moonlight until midnight, the enemy suffering severely, and on forces gradually retired at day light from Lookout to Mission Ridge. Seven regiments of the enemy's cavalry ferried the Tennessee at the month of the Chickamauga on the evening of the 24th. Sherman's corps being on this side
General Thomas. --"Personnel," in his last letter to the Courier from Lookout Mountain, says: The appointment of Gen. Thomas as the successor of Gen. Rosecrans appears to afford satisfaction throughout the army, and to none more than to Gen. Bragg. Thomas was his first lieutenant in Mexico. Before the war he was a rabid secessionist; since the war he has become a radical Abolitionist, and may be summed up mentally and physically, in the language of Gen. Bragg, as "a brave, slow, obstinate, and perverse man."

ing to and from Chattanooga in the rear. Secondly. We could not extend our lines beyond Lookout Mountain to the left, because of the disintegration of our forces which would be necessarily involve preparation to give them battle. Both Generals Bragg and Longstreet were on the summit of Lookout Mountain, observing the movements of the enemy above and below — the six thousand at Brown's Ferry, across Brown's Ferry three times more expeditiously than we could have thrown troops across Lookout Mountain, (through a demoralizing fire,) and sweeping down on our rear, or even encountering our frour bane during the winter. Finally. We have not "lost the advantages of our position." Lookout Mountain is still in our possession, and, to all intents and purposes, the lines of the army have noer the supervision of Captain G. C. Bain, has proven itself to be a valuable organization. Lookout Mountain converses with Missionary Ridge with expedition. Messages are borne on the air for five an
