ur correspondent acknowledges a gentle tremor of the muscle and slight knocking together of the knees as he contemplated the manner in which he would have to "make tracks," or rest in the walls of some Northern bastille. But no enemy have made their appearance, and to-day things present a brighter and more cheering aspect, for we know that Chattanooga will not be taken right away.
