eet gobbles Burnside, as I think he will, Grant must retreat from Chattanooga. And as sure as we get him moved we will keep him moving. The prospect is very cheerful. A large army, an animated spirit, a programme well arranged, nothing but extraordinary bad luck will foil our plans. It is true that we need Forrest. It is true that we shall miss Polk. It is true that Gen. Lee would inspire a deeper confidence. But it is equally true that things are not so bad as they seem, and that General Hardee's presence, his energy, his great talent for discipline, and his fine mind, have corrected a multitude of errors. The Yankees down in Chattanooga are a sorry looking set of fellows, certain. They burrow away in the ground and are as muddy as minks. The pickets are now on mighty friendly terms. They converse freely, joke each other, and sometimes treat. You can ride from one end of our line of sharpshooters to the other without receiving a shot. Papers are not permitted to be ex

Consequently there was no surprise and no lack of time for adequate preparation to give them battle. Both Generals Bragg and Longstreet were on the summit of Lookout Mountain, observing the movements of the enemy above and below — the six thousand at Brown's Ferry, who had already crossed the Tennessee from Chattanooga, and the eleven thousand more, who had simultaneously startncy is felt by those at a distance concerning the situation of the campaign which extends itself along this great river. Will you believe me sincere when I say that I never felt more hopeful? I believe we shall winter around Nashville. If Gen.

e else — perhaps not so favorably to us — and this fact will, in no wise, interfere with the general battle which is eventually to decide the strength of the two armies, and, probably, the issue of the war. It is a question of fighting, and not of eating, with which we have to contend, and a winter's idleness in one place or another has little to do with the solution of the problem while the two armies confront each other intact.

You can ride from one end of our line of sharpshooters to the other without receiving a shot. Papers are not permitted to be exchanged. Flags of truce ply daily. By these, letters are frequently sent, and sometimes travel is also permitted. Mrs. Gen. Helm passed through the other day. A letter to the Atlanta Register dated Missionary Ridge, Nov. 15, says: The signal corps, under the supervision of Captain G. C. Bain, has proven itself to be a valuable organization. Lookout Mountain converses with Missionary Ridge with expedition. Messages are borne on the air for five and six miles with a celerity barely to be believed. The signal flag transmits messages and orders throughout the whole army. Some of the corps having been consolidated, and all placed under the command of the untiring and indefatigable Bain, its efficiency and
