Later from the North. The Baltimore American, of the 2d instant, has been received. We copy its summary of news: From Washington it is stated that in military circles there it is supposed that no glorious impediment will interfere with reinforcing the Army of the Cumberland. From Cairo we learn that Gen. Sherman's corps of Grant's army is on the move, but whither it is not known. The Indianapolis Journal, of Monday, states that 15,000 troops are to be sent forward to Gen. Rosecrans immediately from that place. The artillery lost in the recent battles is being rapidly replaced by new batteries from Nashville. Advices from the Army of the Potomac represent affairs there unchanged. A large force of the rebels is supposed to be concentrating in the Valley. A plan to burn all the Government steamers on the Western rivers is said to have been discovered in St. Louis. Several parties have been arrested there and the matter will be investigated. A te
Lincoln President for life. --The N. Y. Sunday Mercury, of the 20th ult., publishes a letter from a Washington correspondent, who says that it has been determined to postpone the next Presidential election until after the suppression of the rebellion and the restoration of the Union. The reason he assigns for this hold movement is, that the Constitution requires all the States to vote, and that in the present condition of the country it is impossible to comply with the requirement. Thus Lincoln is President for life, with powers fully as absolute as those of Alexander H. or Napoleon III. The next step will be to make the office hereditary in his family, after which he may assume the imperial crown as soon as he may think proper. What luck for a rail-splitter. Sylla. Cæsar. Cromwell, and Napoleon, were accounted lucky men in their day, but their good fortune was sheer adversity compared to that of old Abe. They were all great men, and won their way to empire with their swor
Monroe county. --A large and most respectable meeting of the farmers and other citizens of the county of Monroe was held at the Court House of that county on the 21st ult., to take into consideration the condition of the country. The Hon. A. T. Caperton was called to preside, and Jesse Jones was appointed Secretary. Speeches were delivered by Gen. A. A. Chapman, Hon. A. T. Caperton, Col. Jas. W. Dryan, and Captain Philip Thurman, and great enthusiasm and patriot in feeling was exhibited by the meeting. Resolutions identical with those adopted by the Alternate meeting were ordered and adopted without adjoining voice.
The Latest from Chickamauga. The Marietta Confederate, of the 28th ult., has the following: A quartermaster's sergeant of a Texas brigade, who left the extreme 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
Runaway--$100 reward. --Ran away, on Monday, 14th September, from the Florida Hospital No. 11, in Richmond, Billy Johnson, the property of Mrs. Sarah A. Forlame, Chesterfield, Va. Said man is about 24 years old, light gingerbread color, thick lip, pop eyes, bushy head of hair (curly), stout made, about 5 feet 9 inches high, hangs his head down when walking; wears his hat or cap one side, his weight is about 165 or 170 pounds can cut hair and shave, and might pass off for a free man very readily. No doubt but he has gone off with some officer or private to the army above Orange C. H., or to the South--possibly making his way to the North. He had no papers about his person; or, if any they were forged. I will give the above reward for his delivery to any jail so I can get him again. D. A. Brown. oc 5--1t*
200 dollars reward. --Ran away on Wednesday, Sept. 30th, my negro woman Charlotte. She is about 18 years old, 5 feet 2 or 3 inches high. The most notable mark remembered is that both of her middle fingers are enlarged by having a whitloe of each. Geo. E. Smith. Of the firm of Smith, Lipscomb & Co., Franklin street. oc 2--6t*
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.
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.
