, 1863. On evacuating Chattanooga the enemy retired to Lafayette and massed a force at that place, taking possession of the gaps of Pigeon Mountain directly in front of General Thomas's column. The rebel force had been made formidable by new additions from Johnston, Hindman, Buckner, and Maury. Deserters report the enemy now superior in numbers to the army they had at the battle of Murfreesboro'. Among the divisions are Cheatham's, Deyes's, Claiborne's, Buckner's Stuart's, Hindman's, Slaughter's, and detached brigades of Jackson and Anderson — in all thirty-five brigades of infantry, not less than sixty-five thousand men. Thus formidable in numbers and position, Rosecrans was compelled to concentrate his forces, necessarily much scattered in crossing the Lookout Mountains. The lines of the opposing armies may now be represented as a crescent, shaped by the Pigeon Mountains, which extend like the are of a circle around Lafayette.

ealthy, so cleanly clad, so well supplied, and with so much clan. It is worth to-day in a hard fight twice as much as it ever was before the battle of Gettysburg. A letter from Parnestown, Md., on the upper Potomac, dated to-day, says: Early yesterday morning from 200 to 500 rebel cavalry, said to be a portion of White's command, crossed the Potomac between Watt's branch and Muddy creek, and started towards the cross-roads, two miles from the river, where there had been a rendezvous of Scott's Nine Hundred. Gen. Heintzelman, who had arrived there on a tour of inspection, pursued them up the tow-path of the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal, pressing them so hard that they were compelled to recross the river below Edwards's Ferry. Miscellaneous. The Yankees have dates from Charleston to the 15th inst. One of their rumors is that the city had been destroyed after three days shelling. The occupation of Little Rock, Ark., by the Federals is confirmed. The first bale of c

ssed the river at Raccoon ford, the force consisting of infantry, their design being to reconnoitre the position and ascertain the strength of our force in that vicinity. In this they were foiled and handsomely repulsed, with heavy loss, by Gen. Kilpatrick, who dismounted his men, who used the double Spencer rifle with deadly effect. The regiments engaged on our side were the 1st Virginia and 2d New York cavalry, who fought with their usual gallantry. The casualties in Kilpatrick's divisiKilpatrick's division in the two days were two killed and forty-six wounded. Yesterday and to-day the rebels shelled the wood leading to the camps of our troops on the Rapidan, preventing the wagons and troops from passing for an interval. This afternoon the rebels opened fire from a few guns, without, however, inflicting damage. A squad of thirty men belonging to the 4th New York cavalry were captured by the rebels, and the whole regiment has incurred the displeasure of Gen. Pleasanton, who has issued

The two forces are within a few miles of each other, but are effectually separated by the range of mountains. The rebel position can only be approached by the Cattlers, Wing and Bluebird Gaps, which are well guarded. This position of the rebels covers excellent lines of retreat on Rome and Calhoun, where they will probably make a new line should they be defeated here. There are rumors that they have been retiring for a day or two; but they are considered unreliable. Gen. Rosecrans left Chattanooga on Sunday, and is now engaged in making dispositions for a new situation. He has been ill, but is in fine spirits. In the fight with Negley the rebels lost over 30 killed. Our loss was 7 killed and 35 wounded. Headquarters in the field,Chattanooga, Sept. 17, 1863. All i

ley, brother of the Ex-Military Governor of North Carolina, has been arrested by Gen. Foster for Secession sympathies. The editor of the Alexandria Gazette has been notified that his paper will be stopped if he persists in calling the Legislature at Richmond "the Virginia Legislature." Maine has given Cony, (Rep.,) for Governor, an overwhelming majority. Among the reports in the Northern papers are the following: That Gen. Joe. Johnston has been placed in command of the Army of Northern Virginia in place of Gen. Lee, who has gone to Tennessee; that three divisions of Lee's army have gone to Bragg, and that Longstreet has gone there too. The Herald, in an editorial, says: The probability of a war with England or with France, or with both of these Powers combined, is now the general and absorbing topic of conversation, and even exercises a considerable influence upon the speculations in Wall street.
