ovements. At midnight on the 18th of September the last of my brigade arrived at the terminus of the railroad near Catoosa Station, and next morning marched, under orders from the General Commanding, to Ringgold, at which place the command united with that of Brigadier-General Humphreys. About nightfall orders were received from the Lieutenant-General commanding to join General Hood with the command. Conducted by Colonel Dillard, we moved at once across Alexander's bridge, over Chickamauga creek, and bivouacked at one o'clock A. M. on the 20th. At nine o'clock we were ordered by the Lieutenant-General commanding to a position in reserve to Hood's division, near the headquarters of the Commanding General. About eleven o'clock I was ordered forward with the command to report to Major-General Hood. Arriving, I found his troops engaged in front and a line of battle just going in. General Hood directed me to form line in his rear, with my centre resting on the spot where I found

ds to dispute further advance. He remains in constantly increasing force directly in front, a few miles distant, reviewing heavy reinforcements of old troops from General Lee's army. Longstreet passed through Augusta on the 10th and 11th inst., by rail to Resaca. Their advance has reached Lafayette. The rebels have been moving through the gap of Pigeon Mountain, and forming line on this side, as if to attack. General Rosecrans has assumed a strong defensive position on Chickamauga creek covering Chattanooga. He evinces no disposition to attack at present. The preparation to do so cannot all be completed for a few days, when a battle must ensue. General Stanley, of the cavalry corps, is very ill and has gone to the rear. General R. P. Mitchell succeeds to his command. Headq's army of the Cumberland,September 19, 1863. All reports of an engagement here are false. The enemy has been busy to-day feeling our lines, and artillery duels have been brisk, wit
ibune comments on the news in a long editorial, which contains much interesting information about the strategy and movements of Rosecrans and Burnside. We copy a portion of it: One of the greatest battles of the war was begun at eleven o'clock on Saturday, continued during the day with varying fortune, and was not decisively concluded at nightfall. The position of the field on which it was fought is not indicated by the dispatch clearly enough to be accurately placed on the map. Chickamauga Creek flows northeasterly into the Tennesseee from the mountain slopes in the northeastern angle of Georgia. Parallel ranges seem to lie on either side of it, and Gen. Rosecrans's line of battle extended along its banks. But his advance, under Gen. Thomas, was at Lafayette, some distance beyond the river, more than a week ago, and other columns were moving toward that point. We infer therefore, that for the sake of a strong defensive position, and in order more rapidly to concentrate his
daylight this morning, at the mouth of South Chickamauga, with three divisions of the 15th corps, one division of the 14th corps, and carried the Northern extremity of Missionary Ridge. Our success so far has been complete, and the behavior of our troops admirable. [Signed,]Geo H. Thomas, Maj. Gen'l. Chattanooga,Nov. 24, 6 P, M.--The fight to-day has progressed favorably. Gen. Sherman carried the end of Missionary Ridge, and his right is now at the Tunnel and his left at Chickamauga creek. The troops from Lookout Valley carried the point of the mountain, and now hold the eastern slope and the point high up. I cannot yet tell the amount of casualties, but our loss is not heavy. Gen. Hooker reports 2,000 prisoners taken, besides which a small number have fallen into our hands from Missionary Ridge. [Signed] U. S. Grant, Major Gen. Chattanooga,Nov. 25--Bragg evacuated the summit of Lookout Mountain last night, and our troops occupy it. The enemy, howe
direct. With your showing, you had better give up Kingston at the last moment, and save the most productive part of your possessions. Every arrangement is now made to throw Sherman's forces across the river, just at and below the mouth of Chickamauga creek, as soon as it arrives. Thomas will attack on his left at the same time, and together it is expected to carry Missionary Ridge, and from there push a force on to the railroad between Cleveland and Dalton.--Hooker will at the same time attaay's battle, the pursuit, and the subsequent advance for the relief of Knoxville. Sherman's position not only threatened the right flank of the enemy, but, from his occupying a line across the mountain and to the railroad bridge across Chickamauga creek, his rear and stores at Chickamauga Station. This caused the enemy to mass heavily against him. This movement of his being plainly seen from the position I occupied on Orchard Knoll, Baird's division, of the Fourteenth corps, was ordered t
