tationed at Manassas. The Captain obtained a furlough some few days ago and was on his way home when he was detained at Bristol by the burning of the bridge. A party of citizens of Bristol armed themselves and requested Capt. Miller to take commanBristol armed themselves and requested Capt. Miller to take command of them for the purpose of aiding in the arrest of the traitors who had burned the bridge, which he did. It appears that Gen. or Col. Clarkson, with about 150 men, had previously gone in search of the scoundrels. The Captain and his party left Bristol about 9 o'clock Sunday evening, and marched in the direction of Elizabeth-town, the county seat of Carter county; he had not proceeded very far before he fell in with Col. Clarkson, under whose orders he subsequently acted, and was detailated that two of their party were killed in the first encounter and seven wounded. The bridge which was burned near Bristol was 590 feet long. At the meeting of citizens held this evening, for the purpose of devising means for obtaining a supp
orning from the President of the East Tennessee and Virginia railroad: Jonesboro, Nov. 13.--The Union men have a camp of from one thousand to thirteen hundred men at Elizabethtown, near the North Carolina line, and, about twenty miles from Bristol. They have another camp, with about seven hundred men, near Strawberry Plains. Both camps are increasing in numbers, and it is said they threaten to take possession of the railroad and burn all its bridges. A report had been current that the Unionists had taken possession of Bristol, but a dispatch to the Superintendent of the Virginia and Tennessee railroad, at Lynchburg, shows that the report is unfounded. [second Dispatch.] Lynchburg Nov. 13. --10 o'clock P. M.--The Western train due-this morning has just arrived. It brings through mail dates as late as Knoxville, the 10th inst. Passengers say that the reported damages by Union men have been much exaggerated. Knoxville has been placed under martial law.
East Tennessee. The telegraphic dispatches inform us that Gov. Harris, of Tennessee, is setting earnestly to work to frustrate the designs of the traitors in that State. The leniency that has been shown towards them heretofore has warmed them into life, and they now seek to wound the bosom that nourished them. Reliable advices state that 2,000 Unionists have assembled at or near. Greenville, on the line of the railroad, fifty miles beyond Bristol, toward which point the Georgia troops that lately left this city are advancing. Greenville is the former home of the arch-traitor, Andrew Johnson.
Transportation of treasure. We learn that J. H. Craigmiles, Esq., of Cleveland, Tennessee, who left this city last Thursday with $400,000 in cash, furnished him by that indefatigable agent of the Commissary Department, Major Frank G. Griffin, has arrived safely at his destination with his treasure. With the aid of two good Southern men, secured at Bristol, he crossed the river after the bridges were burned, and his heavy bags of cash are now, as Major Ruffin desired, transferred into Kentucky hogs. To have gotten possession of that large amount of treasure would have been viewed as a God send by the Unionists of East Tennessee.
