Schofield's last move in East Tennessee. --A letter from Gen. Longstreet's army, dated the 10th ult., gives the following account of the Yankee's last forward move from Knoxville: Gen. Schofield, the present commander of the Federal forces in this department has advanced with his entire effective force as far as Panther Springs and Morristown. From some cause he halted and went into camp, there remained for some thirty six hours, when he about faced and returned to Mossy Cleek and New Market. He came with fifteen days rations and evidently intended a further advance than where he came to; but suddenly coming up with the forces of General Longstreet he came to a terminus of his expedition, and does not seem inclined to move any further. His forces consist of three corps of infantry and a small amount of cavalry. Aside from this move there are no demonstrations whatever on the part of the enemy. In the direction of Cumberland Gap. all is quiet Gen. Jones continues to p
Fire at Huntsville. --The Mobile Tribunes has authority that at Huntsville, Ala., there had been an extensive fire — that it was burning from noon on the 14th ult. to Tuesday, the 15th. The northeast end of the city was destroyed by fire.

From the Southwest. Atlanta, April 2. --Advices from New Orleans, to the 19th ult., are received. They state that Alexandria surrendered to Porter's fleet without opposition. The Yankee cavalry advance occupy New Iberia. Guerillas have appeared in the vicinity of Baton Rouge, and had several skirmishes with the 4th Wisconsin mounted infantry. Cairo advices, of the 26th of March, state that the fleet was still off Alexandria, but nothing definite had been received from Banks and Steel. It is reported that Banks was receiving considerable opposition from the forces of Dick Taylor. Brownsville advices via New Orleans, March 19th, report that there was no prospect of a fight in Texas. Nine French frigates had appeared off the mouth of the river, and an attack on Matamoras was expected.
Fatal affair. --In Scott county, Va., on the 20th ult., a difficulty arose in a company of Partizan Rangers, commanded by Capt. Field from Kentucky, in which two privates named Horton killed Lieut. Wm. Elliot, a brother of Hon. Mr. Elliot, a member of the Confederate Congress from Kentucky.
illed, and Col. Mitchell, five privates and two Union citizens, were wounded. Two rebels were killed and several wounded. Forrest's raid — his capture of prisoners at Union city — his reported repulse at Paducah. The accounts of Gen. Forrest's progress in his raid are contradictory. He captured Union City, Tenn., with about 500 Federals, under Col. Hawkins, and, it appears, took his prisoners along with him, as he still had them when he appeared in front of Paducah, Ky., on the 26th. The following is the Yankee account of what they claim to be his repulse at that place: Gen. Forrest had about 7,000 men in the attack on Paducah. His line of battle was 2½ miles long. The fight lasted all the afternoon. Four assaults were made on the fourteen masse, each of which was repulsed with great slaughter to the enemy. The gunboats fired 600 rounds. A large portion of the town is in ruins. The rebels plundered the stores and carried off horses during the fight. Forty co
Through the politeness of the officers of the Exchange Bureau we have received Northern papers of Thursday last, 31st ult. We give a summary of the news they contain: Rebellion in Missouri and Illinois--troops Attacked — Insurgents entrenched. The papers contain the following account of a disturbance which has occurred in Missouri and Illinois. All the places mentioned are in the Northern portions of those States, and but a few miles distant from each other: St. Louis, Tuesday, March 29, 1864. --A special dispatch to the Democrat, from Charleston, Coles co says the Copperheads came into that town to attend Court yesterday, with guns concealed in their wagons and armed with pistols. Some soldiers in the Court-House yard were drawn into an affray, and a general fight occurred. The County Sheriff sprang from the Judge's stand and commenced firing a pistol at Union men Major York, surgeon of the 54th, was one of the first victims. The Union men, being outnumber

y strong language. Therefore the Provost Marshal is ordered to seize the paper and punish the venders thereof. Indiana, we believe, is the only State that has been always in advance of calls for troops. It is now stated that on the first day of February last that State had furnished her quota under all calls, and had an excess or seven thousand three hundred and thirty men, not including re-enlisted veterans. To this excess is to be added the number of men mustered into the old and new regiments since the first of February, and the number supposed to be enlisted not mustered in, and a number of re-enlisted veterans, in all estimated at seventeen thousand men, making the total excess about twenty-four thousand men. Gen. Sigel, who has just assumed command of the Department of West Virginia, had a narrow escape from capture by the rebels a few days since. While at Martinsburg he rode outside of his picket lines for some reason, and just at that moment a force of two hundr

The Prussians had taken Ostier, near West Duppel, with a loss of about one hundred men — The Danes made some vigorous sorties. Five Danish steamers engaged two Prussian men-of-war and several gunboats off Rugen Island. --The engagement was sharp, and terminated in the withdrawal of the Prussian vessels. They were pursued by the Danes, but succeeded in reaching port. It is said that the Danish Iron-clad monitor Rolf-Krake was repulsed. She was defeated by the German batteries on the 17th of February, and has probably suffered again. A very interesting description of her performance, and the injury she sustained, is given in the Herald to day. Lord Palmerston "hoped" that Denmark would assent to the conference plan. The Danish batteries are armed with French rifled guns. The Pope was seriously Ill. Collisions between the French and Papal troops still continued in the streets of Rome. The Liverpool cotton market was firm, with prices unchanged, on the 19th of March. Bread
