s great battle Gen. Bragg has exhibited a military sagacity far over reaching Rosecrans, and by his masterly manœuvres has handled his army with a skill and judgmente full of bombast. In conversation one of them informed us that he believed "Rosecrans would get whipped this time, but he had too many pontoon-bridges to cross therant's army. They appeared not in the least surprised at the intelligence of Rosecrans's rout on Sunday and Monday, but assert that they have a plenty of troops to Some of the officers among the prisoners who arrived last night asserted that Rosecrans had a reserve which was not engaged in the battles on Saturday and Sunday. crs were obliged to leave. It is evident we must have another struggle before Rosecrans is driven across the river.

is over the river, and Gen. Forrest is in the right place. A Confederate officer has just arrived who was wounded and a prisoner Saturday, and detained in a Yankee hospital until Monday, when he was relieved by Forrest's cavalry. He saw Gen. Rosecrans on Sunday at 12M., and did not perceive any marks of wounds. On Sunday night rockets were seen towards Harrison, which, the Yankees said, were a signal of the approach of General Burnside, with forty thousand reinforcements. A heavy-That night Gen. Wheeler made a reconnaissance toward Lookout Mountain, found an infantry force of the enemy, and drove them away. The mountain is now, held by Gen. Longstreet. The enemy's operations are plainly visible from Lookout. Rosecrans has two lines of defence on the road to Chattanooga, six hundred yards apart. He has one pontoon bridge across the river, which is crowded with wagons, and the impression is that he brings them over as they are needed. Gen. Longstreet com
Situation in East Tennessee. --From the intelligence which we publish in another part of this paper, coupled with an inspection of the map of the country around Chattanooga, we are inclined to think that the army of Rosecrans is in a very critical 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 do
The defeat of Rosecran's army at the North. Mobile Sept. 26. --The Advertiser and Register has a special dispatch from Senatobia, which says: Northern papers are mournful over Rosecrans's defeat. They acknowledge a loss of thirty thousand. The insurance companies will not insure the Mississippi river steamer. All quiet in Arkansas.
h. Though the news is far from encouraging, people here have confidence that Rosecrans will maintain himself till reinforcements reach him, and that he will then turn the tables on Johnston. Washington,Sept. 24.--A dispatch from Gen. Rosecrans, dated at his headquarters last night, says: "I cannot be dislodged from mymet a defeat which must put it on the defensive for some time to come. Gen. Rosecrans was falling back on Chattanooga, where he was perfectly safe from all that y falling into the enemy's hands, whilst they lost twenty taken by us. Gen. Rosecrans is in no danger, but at the time Mr. S. left Chattanooga the danger to Burnnent. The Washington papers of Friday evening say that dispatches from Gen. Rosecrans to 2 P. M. on Thursday show that he is in an impregnable position, feels entirely safe, and has no doubt about holding out. Rosecrans invites battle in his present position.
