on the west bank of West Chickamauga, and is about eight miles from Ringgold, Ga., and about the same distance from Chattanooga, Tenn., being nearly due west from the former and nearly due south from the latter. It is some four miles below the Tennessee line, and is bounded on the west by the Missionary Ridge, (a continuation of Walden's Ridge in Tennessee,) and on the east by the Chickamauga, or "river of blood," as the Indian name implies. Rossville, the former home of John Ross, the celebrTennessee,) and on the east by the Chickamauga, or "river of blood," as the Indian name implies. Rossville, the former home of John Ross, the celebrated chief of the Cherokees, is two miles north from the battle field, and situated at the foot of a pass in Missionary Ridge. It was in this lovely valley of the Chickamauga, and along these mountain passes, that the hostile tribes were wont to meet in battle array and settle their disputes. It was here that the dusky maiden was wooed and won by her forest born lover, and questions of boundary and dominion and revenge found their bloody solution. This was in the years that are gone when the

country. But this is not all; indeed, it is the least part of the glorious result. By a single battle we succeeded in expelling the invader from the soil of Georgia, the teeming Egypt of the Confederacy, at a time of much solicitude in the public mind, and under circumstances which seemed propitious to the successful advance of the enemy into the very heart and stronghold of the country. Our success can only be measured by what our grief and loss would have been if the enemy had reached Atlanta and overrun the State. I have endeavored heretofore to pay due homage to the skill and gallantry by which this great victory was achieved. Officers and men alike did their duty, and to each and all is due, next to the Giver of all victory, the deep gratitude of an imperiled people. But the truth of history, as well as simple justice, requires it to be stated here, that no one officer, or body of men of the same number, could have contributed more to the triumph of the Confederate arm

as soon as he did. His blow was given with skill and crushing effect. If it had only been followed up with other rapid blows upon the arrival of his remaining reinforcements possibly still more gratifying results might have been accomplished. But this is not certain, and let us not be too fast to find fault. As it is, let us see what were he fruits of our victory. In the first place, we captured 7,000 well prisoners; these will go far towards equalizing our losses at Vicksburg and Port Hudson. In the next, we took 40 stands of colors, 38 guns (of which Longstreet's command brought off 27,) 25,000 small arms, 150 wagons, and several thousand cartridge boxes, and knapsacks with their contents. This is a good showing--one that speaks for itself — and will pass for a great victory in any country. But this is not all; indeed, it is the least part of the glorious result.

s blood. The "River of Blood"--if this was an appropriate name for the crooked, gliding, serpent-shaped river in the days of the Indian, recent events have given to it a yet stronger claim to that sanguinary title. The ground upon which the battle was fought is slightly undulating, except where it approaches the mountain spurs and ridges on the west, and is covered with heavy timber, with occasional patches of cleared land here and there. The timber is not so thick as that around Chancellorsville, where the undergrowth is almost impenetrable, but resembles more the woods about Shiloh, where the troops were manœuvered with comparative ease. The artillery could take but an inconsiderable part in the battle in consequence of the timber and the level character of the ground. On the left next to Missionary Ridge the ground is broken into hills and valleys, but the primeval forest still remains, and consequently the most skillful artillerist could accomplish, but little. It is

Further from the battle of the Chickamauga. [from our Own Correspondent.] Army of Tennessee,In front of Chattanooga, Tenn.,September 25th, 1863. There are some additional facts and circumstances connected with the battle of the Chickamauga which deserve to be recorded. The battle field lies on the west bank of West Chickamauga, and is about eight miles from Ringgold, Ga., and about the same distance from Chattanooga, Tenn., being nearly due west from the former and nearly due south from the latter. It is some four miles below the Tennessee line, and is bounded on the west by the Missionary Ridge, (a continuation of Walden's Ridge in Tennessee,) and on the east by the Chickamauga, or "river of blood," as the Indian name implies. Rossville, the former home of John Ross, the celebrated chief of the Cherokees, is two miles north from the battle field, and situated at the foot of a pass in Missionary Ridge.

some important changes to report since the date of my last letter.--We have wrested Lookout Mountain from the enemy, and now command the Nashville and Chattanooga Railroad below Chattanooga, the only channel, except his wagon trains, by which he can receive supplies from the rear. His position, however, is impregnable to assault in front. His forces occupy a bend in the Tennessee, which is spanned by two wide substantial pontoon bridges. His flanks are well protected — the right by Chattanooga creek, a deep stream with steep banks, and the left by a curve in the river above, while his front is defended by outer and inner lines of entrenchments, and a series of redoubts and earthworks which crown every bill within the circuit of his fortifications and command every approach to the town. To attack the enemy in such a position were worse than madness. Many of these works have been prepared or otherwise strengthened since the battle. But does Rosecrans intend to hold Chattanoog

Passing from the battle to the present situation there are some important changes to report since the date of my last letter.--We have wrested Lookout Mountain from the enemy, and now command the Nashville and Chattanooga Railroad below Chattanooga, the only channel, except his wagon trains, by which he can receive supplies from the rear. His position, however, is impregnable to assault in front. econnaissance was undertaken last night at half-past 10 o'clock, when his pickets and scouts were chased back to the fortifications, but he was found to be in strong force and not yet evacuating the place. To-day, however, our signal men on Lookout Mountain report that his wagons have been taken across the river and parked, and that long lines of infantry, cavalry, and artillery, accompanied by forage wagons loaded with hay, could be seen moving over the bridges and across the mountains to the

This order was found upon the person of Adj't Gen. Mubleman, of Gen. Palmer's staff, who subsequently fell into our hands. Headq'rs 14th Army Corps,Near McDaniel's House,Sept. 19, 1863--9 A. M. Major-General Palmer: The rebels are reported in quite heavy force between you and Alexander Mill. If you advance as soon as possible on them in front, while I attack them in flank, I think we can use them up. Respectfully, your ob't serv't, Geo. H. Thomas, Major-Gen'l Jr. Commanding. This was Saturday morning. The counter attack upon the front and flank of our flanking column was made with vigor soon after it had crossed the river, and in accordance with the plan suggested by Gen. Thomas, and if not entirely successful, it was sufficiently so to disarrange our plans a
