on the east by the Chickamauga, or "river of blood," as the Indian name implies. Rossville, the former home of John Ross, the celebrated chief of the Cherokees, is two miles north from the battle field, and situated at the foot of a pass in Missionary Ridge. It was in this lovely valley of the Chickamauga, and along these mountain passes, that the hostile tribes were wont to meet in battle array and settle their disputes. It was here that the dusky maiden was wooed and won by her forest born more the woods about Shiloh, where the troops were manœuvered with comparative ease. The artillery could take but an inconsiderable part in the battle in consequence of the timber and the level character of the ground. On the left next to Missionary Ridge the ground is broken into hills and valleys, but the primeval forest still remains, and consequently the most skillful artillerist could accomplish, but little.

Bragg's headquarters. A flag of truce was expected yesterday. The enemy is again busy strengthening his positions, the most formidable of which is a star-shaped fort in the enemy's rear partially constructed before the evacuation of Chattanooga by our troops. The health and spirit of the troops are very fine, and they are all anxious to be led against the enemy. Everything indicates quiet for some time. Rosecrans's forces seem to be massed in and immediately around the town. Three pontoons have been through across the river and his wagon trains are parked on the opposite banks.
