nst., says: Official information is received here from Gen. Burnside up to the 4th or 5th inst., stating that part of his cavalry forces had arrived at Knoxville, while others were at Morristown and Loudoun, on the line of the East Tennessee and Virginia railroad, which towns are northeast and southwest respectively from Knoxville. It is represented that when Gen. Burnside arrived before Kingston the enemy fell back and retreated. At this point a cavalry force, sent out from Gen. Rosecrans's army at Chattanooga, eighty miles to the south, joined Gen. Burnside's forces. The latter pushed on his column to Loudoun, where a sharp fight took place, but the enemy was completely routed, with considerable loss. Our casualties in all the skirmished were trifling. Gen. Burnside met with slight resistance before occupying Knoxville. Miscellaneous. Newbern (N. C.) advices to September 6th state that Hon.

mith, commanded by a soldier of tried metal and merit, was last night dispatched across Lookout Mountain to watch the movements of this force. It is only feared by our most sagacious officers that these rumors are not correct, or at least that Rosecrans is too wily a leader to risk his army or any large portion of it in a position where his destruction will be speedy and certain. Let him once cross the Tennessee west of this point and become entangled in the fastnesses and passes of that regif the view and information of this officer be correct, he is then compelled to fight a desperate battle; for if he fails his whole army will fall an easy prey to Bragg, whose communications with the rear will be left undisturbed, while those of Rosecrans will extend over two difficult mountain ridges, sparsely settled, badly watered, and easy of ambush. Bragg can also concentrate his entire force upon his foe — a force now grown enthusiastically confident, desperate, and determined to win vict
