since its first occupation by his forces. The Yankees have left no provisions for any one, save the Abolition sympathizers, and some of the loyal Southern people were actually subsisting upon parched corn. The enemy had received no reinforcements up to Monday night from Grant's army.--They were under the impression that Gen. Joe Johnston commanded our army. The following citizens of Chattanooga and vicinity were arrested and confined by the enemy: Capt Moses Wells, L Ryle, Dr. Gillespie, R Simpson, Repan, Sr., Mr. McGill, Mr. McCreary, and Mr. Davis Swick. The pretended charges against the last mentioned gentleman were that he had threatened to poison his well if the Yankees ever came to Chattanooga. Mr. McCreary has been robbed of everything and was sick in bed when arrested. Col. Hunter, a Kentuckian, is Provost Marshal. His office is at the State Road depot, in the upper rooms. The back rooms are used for a prison. Mails arrive and depart daily.

n Ohio. Reaching the foot of the Cumberland Mountain, eight miles from the mouth of White Creek, he impressed all the inhabitants, seized such tools as he needed, and proceeded with his escort of forty men to the bank of the Tennessee, one mile below Gillespie's Landing, taking care that none of the citizens who saw him should escape to give the alarm to the Un on videttes at Kingston. An old man who had been seized managed to elude the vigilance of John's guards, and traveled on foot to Gillespie with the exciting intelligence. Infantry being the only available troops at Gillespie, they were buried, off to White Creek Shoals, with a view to intercept the guerilla chief, but they arrived a few moments too late. Morgan himself, mounted on a five-thousand- dollar stallion, presented him in Kentucky, and accompanied by one mounted man of his escort, dashed away just as the panting foot soldiers came in sight.--Two of his Captains — Robert and Wm. Cummings, of Lexington, Ky.--were not

he law take its course. [Cheers.] The crowd here rushed once more upon the Empire office, but were met by the Democrats, who had congregated in large numbers, well armed and prepared. A single Democrat, a Mr. M--,stood his ground with the crowd, and drawing his pistol, made them come no further. Stones and missiles of all kinds were hurled at him as he retreated to the curbs. Being overpowered, and his life in danger, he finally fired, when shooting became general. Forty shots were fired. A Mr. Sarle, from Neddle Smith's district, was killed and several wounded. Here the posse comitatus, numbering some two hundred, ordered by the Mayor, appeared upon the ground, when quiet was restored.--As we bade His Honor, Mayor Gillespie, fare well, his chiefs were rapidly making arrests. The Democratic Convention for the nomination of candidates for municipal offices takes place on Sunday evening next, when the friends of the Empire will take measures to redress its wrongs.

On the morning of the 16th, at daylight, Colonel Gillespie was attacked and repulsed, retreating towards WythevColonel Gillespie was attacked and repulsed, retreating towards Wytheville, sixteen miles distant. There were no troops at this point — the railroad superintendent having failed to send them from Dublin. For want of cars, also, but a portion of the stores could be removed from Wytheville. "The retreat of Gillespie was so rapid, and the pursuit of the enemy so close, that the former arrived at Gillespie was so rapid, and the pursuit of the enemy so close, that the former arrived at Wytheville at 11 1-2 A. M., and passed through the town in a stampede, all efforts to rally them failing. The enemy appeared at 1 P. M., their videttes approaching very cautiously.
