ar. Within the circle thus formed by the river in the rear and the lines of entrenchments in front, there are a number of hills or elevations which are crowned by formidable earthworks and batteries. Some of these defences were erected by Gen. Bragg, but they have been greatly strengthened and multiplied by Gen. Rosecrans since the battle. There is a star shaped fort of large extent in front of the railway depot, and near the curve of the second line of breastworks. Eight hundred or a thimportance, not only as regards Tennessee, but as a point d'appui in the future conduct of the war, and it will be held if possible. The papers admit the defeat of Rosecrans, but ascribe it to the large reinforcements which they say were sent to Bragg. It is understood that the four bridges burnt by the Confederate cavalry on the Georgia State Railroad have been rebuilt, and that the cars are now running to Chickamauga station. When will our people learn that they injure themselves only
mountains. To subsist an army in this way is indeed a difficult matter, not only from its being a slow and tedious process, but their trains would be liable to capture and destruction by some bold and dashing cavalry man. We have him closely besieged in the rear. Our lines are of such material that his army will never break through them. From the ridge in the rear of our lines we can see the enemy very plainly. Yesterday they were very busy working on their fortifications, using for this purpose railroad iron and cross ties. To-day their works present a very formidable appearance, and they are still at work. I have no idea that Gen Bragg will attempt to carry their works by an assault. To do this would require too great a sacrifice of human lives. They can be shelled out, and this plan I think will be adopted. It is very gratifying to see many of our slightly wounded returning to their commands. Yesterday about thirty of our regiment arrived and reported for duty.
Relieved of their commands. --The Atlanta (Ga.) Appeal, of Friday last, says: By command of Gen. Bragg, Lieut.-Gen. Polk arrived in this city yesterday evening, whither he has been required to repair and await further orders. This procedure, as we have been informed, is based upon some disagreement between the two Generals as to the conduct of the latter on the battle-field of Chickamauga. Gen. Polk, we learn, feels confident that he will be enabled, before the proper tribunal, in the most unqualified manner, to acquit himself of all blame in the premises. Gen. Hindman is also in the city under a similar state of circumstances.
