From East Tennessee. Zollicoffer, Sept. 20, 1863. To General S. Cooper: The enemy made a demonstration in force on us here to-day, and were repulsed. My cavalry followed them to Blountsville, six miles from here. Their force engaged to-day are believed to have been not less than two thousand--all mounted — and six pieces of artillery. Five other regiments are reported between Jonesboro' and Watauga bridge, but they had not engaged my force at the latter place late this afternoon. (Signed,) Samuel Jones, Major General. [Zollicoffer is a station on the East Tennessee and Virginia railroad, eleven miles from Bristol. Jonesboro' is thirty-two miles from Bristol. The distance from Bristol to Knoxville is 130 miles.]
about 100 barrels of flour and a small quantity of bacon, and gutted several stores. About three miles this side of Bristol they destroyed a bridge and tore up a few rails and then went back. There is no force threatening Saltville. Gen. Jones whipped the enemy at Zollicoffer, ten miles west of Bristol, on Sunday, and it is reported that Gen. Williams, being in their rear, had captured the entire retreating force, said to be 2400. The last rumor needs confirmation, but Jones's victur and a small quantity of bacon, and gutted several stores.

Sept. 30. --Trains have arrived here from Chickamauga station bringing such of our wounded as are able to bear removal. About twenty-five hundred remain in field hospitals, who are too severely injured to endure transportation. A staff officer who left the lines yesterday afternoon reports that a flag of truce had been sent in by Gen. Rosecrans. After considerable correspondence Gen. Bragg. consented to an exchange of the wounded. They have about 600 Confederates and we have 5,000 Yankees. The exchange is conditional. There is no change in the condition of affairs in front of Chattanooga. Rosecrans receives his supplies by wagon trains from Stevenson. A report reached Dalten yesterday that Gen. Sam. Jones had occupied Knoxville, and that Burnside had retested towards Cumberland Gap. These reports are credited in official circles. Major Rice raves, Chief of Artillery of Gen. Breckinridge's Division, died on Sunday from wounds received at Chickamauga.

opposite to the city on the North side.--The city is built on the toe of the horse shoe. The distance across the opening of the horse shoe does not appear to be more than half a mile, offering a splendid opportunity for a strong body of troops to seize and fortify it. Twenty thousand men there could keep off five times their number, there being no room for a larger force to deploy. Upon the whole, as far as we can judge of the relative situation of the two armies, from the meagre information afforded by the telegraph, that of Bragg seems to be encouraging — that of Rosecrans gravely critical. The Yankees, however, are making prodigious efforts to reinforce the latter, having already dispatched two corps from Meade's army and large numbers of troops from Vicksburg and other Southern points. The report that Knoxville had been taken by Gen. Sam. Jones, and that Burnside had retreated towards Cumberland Gap, (alluded to in the telegram to-day,) seems not to be generally credited.

stem of voluntary loan to the Confederate Government may not be valuable in depleting the debt and strengthening the currency; and to that end, whenever individuals or corporations shall indicate their willingness to take in 6 per cent bonds at least four hundred millions of dollars, then Virginia take a sum not exceeding one eighth of the same, and to recommend to her sister States to take such like sum as shall speedily raise the aforesaid amount. A joint resolution was presented by Mr. Jones, of Dinwiddie, to instruct our Senators and request our Representatives in Congress to use their best efforts to secure an increase of pay to the soldiers in the service of the Confederate States.--The resolution lies over under the rule. The bill to incorporate the Virginia Volunteer Navy Company was considered and passed. The bill to provide by impressment, or otherwise, for the families of soldiers, was taken up, and after some discussion laid on the table. The bill to co
The Averill Raid. The following official dispatch was received at the War Department in this city yesterday: Top of Sweet Springs Mountain,Via Dublin, Dec. 20th. To Gen. S. Cooper, A. and I.

frequently bought articles in his line from the accused. A few days ago he was asked by him whether he did not wish to purchase some tin, and how much he was willing to pay. He expressed a willingness to buy it at $350 per box, and received the promise of the prisoner at the bar that he would let him have it as soon as it reached the city — it was then on its way from Wilmington, but had been delayed for want of transportation. He was always under the impression that the accused's name was Jones, and was positive that he had never known him as Berile. The brother of the accused was then called and made oath that he had been informed by the prisoner that he expected from Wilmington in a few days a lot of tin, which he had authorized a man in Wilmington to buy for him at an auction there. It was the intention, as the witness understood him, to turn it over to the Confederate States, in exchange for some which he had received from the Laboratory. At the conclusion of the evi
