ole of Rosecrans' army. Our lines extend from the river, below the city, along the side of Lookout Mountain, at an elevation a little above the tops of the trees and sufficient to command a view of trds of the enemy. Longstreet's corps now occupy the position on the left, near the base of Lookout Mountain, Hill's next, Buckner's next, and Polk's the extreme right. Our informant, who belongerailroad depots, made a body of Yankees scamper away from the fan yard between the city and Lookout Mountain, and scattered another body at the enemy's wagon yard across the river. This was done with's. Our army lies in a valley forming a semi circle, extending on the left from the base of Lookout Mountain to that of Missionary Ridge on the right.--From the heights of the latter ridge, some 900 fr 15,000 troops in the town, which is sufficient to hold it against great odds. As we hold Lookout Mountain and command the Nashville and Chattanooga Road to Bridgeport, the enemy's communication is

met by Col. Jos. C. McKibben, Capt. D. G. Swain, Lieut. M. J. Kelly, and Surgeon Perrin, Medical Inspector, all of Rosecrans's staff. The preliminary arrangements were made conditionally on our part. The Yankee officers were full of chat and anxious to converse but our officers were very reserved. McKibben was formerly a member of Congress from California, and voted upon the Southern side of the Kansas question. Henry Roberts, formerly of Co. K., 26th Tennessee, who deserted at Tullahoma on the 1st of July last, and afterwards enlisted in the enemy's ranks, and was captured at the late battle, lighting against us, was executed this morning for desertion. The whole of Stewart's division was ordered out to witness the execution. The Atlanta Appeal, in an article on the probability of Burnside reaching Rosecrans, says: That he had not effected a junction with Rosecrans up to Sunday evening, appears to be the general belief. We have met a gentleman who left the r

fords had been uncovered and our entire army passed over. This plan was frustrated, according to report, by a counter movement which is explained in the following order of the Federal General Thomas. 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

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

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 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 said that Gen. Bragg's plan of attack was designed to be the same as

front yesterday morning, gives us sundry interesting items. He says that Chattanooga is closely invested by our troops, who are so well fortified that one half of our forces can defy the whole of Rosecrans' army. Our lines extend from the river, below the city, along the side of Lookout Mountain, at an elevation a little above the tops of the trees and sufficient to command a view of the enemy's lines, and at the distance of about a mile from the enemy's outer line, and pass around to Missionary Ridge, and thence to the river above the city, ranging from one to two miles in distance from the enemy's lines. Our fortifications consist of heavy logs, rails and stones covered with earth, and about breast high, except at some points mounted by cannon, where the earthworks are heavier. The enemy are also well fortified, having an inner line of strong fortifications and an outer one of rifle pits for sharpshooters. The inner line embraces the square fort thrown up by Gen. Bragg off an el

From the battle-field. Missionary Ridge via Chickamauga, Oct. 3. --The sun rose bright and clear this morning after two days of heavy rains. The hostile lines of the enemy are plainly seen from Gen. Bragg's headquarters. A flag of truce was expected yesterday. The enemy is again busy strengthening his positions, the most formidable of which is a star-shaped fort in the enemy's rear partially constructed before the evacuation of Chattanooga by our troops. The health and spirit of the troops are very fine, and they are all anxious to be led against the enemy. Everything indicates quiet for some time. Rosecrans's forces seem to be massed in and immediately around the town. Three pontoons have been through across the river and his wagon trains are parked on the opposite banks.

From Gordonsville. Gordonsville, Oct. 3. --The report that Meade had sent two army corps to Rosecran and that the enemy was preparing to fall back, is contradicted. Our scouts say that but one corps has been sent to Rosecrans, and that there are no indications of falling back. Three Federal prisoners, captured at Robertson river, and three of their deserters, passed through to day for Richmond.

3. 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. 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.

circle, extending on the left from the base of Lookout Mountain to that of Missionary Ridge on the right.--From the heights of the latter ridge, some 900 feet high, a commanding view is presented of the valley and town of Chattanooga, and of Walden's Ridge, on the opposite side of the Tennessee. The enemy's position is very strong and well fortified, they taking advantage of the works we had constructed, besides having since erected three lines of entrenchments fronting South. A large encampm town, which is sufficient to hold it against great odds. As we hold Lookout Mountain and command the Nashville and Chattanooga Road to Bridgeport, the enemy's communication is cut off for obtaining supplies, except by the rugged road across Walden's Ridge, across the river and opposite the town. He is no doubt forced to send a heavy escort with all his trains for fear of being cut off by our cavalry, which is said to be already in his rear. To attempt to carry Chattanooga by storm at this ti
