a Marylander but a citizen of Arkansas, and had previously distinguished himself at Oak 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 over 1,000 prisoners. To-night, (Tuesday,) as I close this letter, which I send by private express, a courier just in reports that the enemy are burning their stores at Chattanooga and crossing the river. When it is taken into consideration that our army had to travel ankle deep in dust, over a wild, barren, broken country without affording any subsistence, and our men on half rations undergoing forced m
From Northern Georgia. Atlanta, Sept. 26. --The train last night from Ringgold ran off the track four miles above Marietta, and is not yet in. No lives lost. 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 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 the enemy. Our forces are well up to the front.--Full supplies of commissary and hospital stores are close at hand. On Wednesday night our cavalry occupied Cooper's Gap, on Lookout Mountain, twelve miles from Chattanooga.--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
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 moment he commen
