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.
