rdon's mills, a distance of between seven and ten miles, over a rugged, barren country of hill and dale. Between 8 and 9 o'clock A. M. the battle opened on our right, in the course of an hour the firing because heavy and rapid, the batteries of Forrest's and Walker's divisions, and the reserve, Capt. Lumsden's battery, in command of Major Palmer, Chief of Artillery, keeping up a perfect roar of fire, which was fully returned by the enemy. The lines of both armies moved to and fro like the advk Hills, Elk Horn, and Murfreesboro'. Gen. Buckner's and Hill's corps also won imperishable renown. Capt. James Stone of Buckner's escort, (who took Gen. Willich prisoner at Murfreesboro'.) also added to his laurels. On Monday, the 21st, Gen. Forrest pursued the enemy, capturing a squadron of Gen. Stanley's Yankee cavalry, and general skirmishing taking place, the enemy retreating on Chattanooga. Gen. Wheeler had also captured a large train of wagons, burning a large portion and securing

Mr. Adair writes from Ringgold, yesterday, to the Confederacy, that General Wheeler, with his cavalry, is over the river, and Gen. Forrest is in the right place.

A heavy Confederate force was before Chattanooga and Harrison. [Second Dispatch.] Atlanta, Sept. 26. --Our lines extend around Chattanooga within striking distance of the enemy. Our forces are well up to the front.--Full supplies of commissary and hospital stores are
situation. His railroad communication with Nashville is cut off by the movement of Gen. Longstreet, whose corps occupies Lookout Mountain, below Chattanooga, and on the right of the Yankees. The railroad runs at the base of this mountain, between it and the river, and is therefore completely in Longstreet's power. The only means which Rosecrans has left of communicating with Nashville, therefore, is by wagons, on the ordinary roads of the country; and in the presence of such officers as Forrest and Wheeler, who are already over the river, this is rather a frail dependence. It appears evident to us that he must either attack Bragg's position, (in which case he will be awfully beaten,) or surrender, (which he will hardly think of doing until he has tried every other expedient,) or attempt to retreat across the river, in the face of a victorious enemy, who has a full view of his camps, knows every movement he makes as soon as it is undertaken, and will assuredly assault him the mome
