Heavy skirmishing near Chattanooga — the enemy Moving. Atlanta, Oct. 30. --No news reports from above by telegraph. The following has been received by mail: "Missionary Ridge, Oct. 29.--The enemy have crossed a division at Brown's Ferry, three miles below Chattanooga, and are in possession of Raccoon Mountain, which they are apparently fortifying. A rapid shelling of our camps on the west side of Lookout Mountain was kept up by the enemy to-day, our batteries replying. No casualties reported. Heavy skirmishing anticipated on our left." A special dispatch to the Intelligencer, of the same date, says: "Two divisions, Howard's and Hooker's, came down yesterday from Bridgeport to Lookout Vally, and were joined by Granger's corps last night, which crossed at Brown's Ferry, three miles below Chattanooga. Jenkins's division attacked the enemy at 2 o'clock this morning, and captured a number of wagons and twenty-five prisoners. The enemy now occupy the west side of

selves in Chattanooga is now dissipated into thin air. As was intimated in my letter of last night, the artillery duel between our guns on Look-out and the enemy's Moccasin batteries came off to-day, and ended in — smoke. Sallust October 29--7 A. M. Jenkins attacked the enemy last night at Brown's ferry, and drove them back, but was finally compelled to retire himself before largely superior numbers. Nothing is known as to the casualties on either side. The fighting continued for some hours, and will probably be renewed. I hear artillery-firing across Lookout, in the direction of the ferry, as I close this postscript. Sallust. Army of Tennessee, Chattanooga Valley, Oct. 29. I have but little to add to my postscript of this morning, touching the fight last night in Lookout valley. This valley lies west of the mountain of that name, and between it and Raccoon mountain, and is drained by Lookout creek, which empties its waters into the Tennessee a
Stanley, of the 11th Ohio regiment, floated fifty pontoons down the river in the face of the rebel sharpshooters, landed at Brown's ferry, and surprised and drove the rebels from the ridge on the south side, opening communication with Bridgeport. "The rebels are flanked, and must evacuate Lookout Mountain." A second dispatch says that Gen. Hazen, with two thousand of Gen. Palmer's division, attacked the enemy on Lookout Mountain, and drove him from his position. Cincinnati, Oct. 29.--Our loss in the brilliant achievement at Chattanooga was only five killed and fifteen wounded of Gen. Hazen's brigade. Gen. Palmer is assigned to the command of the 14th army corps. Communication will be opened between Bridgeport and Chattanooga along the Chattanooga river.

to the reinforcement of Bragg; and his design is now to hide the fact, under a guise of a belligerent attitude, until the truth leaks out from a heavy battle in the Southwest, and then if Meade should advance his fortifications would serve him to check sufficiently long to make good his retreat until under the protecting shield of the fortifications of Richmond. Winter coming on would be to him then a strong ally. Election frauds in Ohio. A telegram from Hamilton, Ohio, dated October 29th, says revelations regarding the great majorities recently given to Borough are daily coming to light: A Methodist minister was arrested here last week upon charge of Illegal voting. He was brought up before the Mayor to-day for trial, and was bound over in the sum of five hundred dollars to appear at the next session of the Court of Common Pleas. The most gigantic frauds have been perpetrated in Ohio during the recent election.--Highland county alone gives Borough (Lincolnite) a m

We feel satisfied that one of two events will take place before a great while; either Bragg will flank Grant, or Grant will flank Bragg. Heaven defend Georgia and the South from the last, and God speed the advance of the Army of Tennessee into the land of wool and grain and comfortable winter quarters. The correspondent of the Atlanta Intelligencer writes from camp before Chattanooga, October 29, as follows: A division of the enemy, escorting about one hundred wagons of supplies and a number of ambulances, came up from Stevenson yesterday, by the way of Jasper, and crossed to this side of Kelly's Ferry, ten miles below Lookout, coming up Lookout Valley to Brown's Ferry, three miles below Chattanooga, where they have just finished a pontoon bridge. After a skirmish with our picket, (two regiments,) our men fell back, and the train succeeded in passing — the wagons crossing a
A Victory in Missouri. Mobile, October 29. --A special dispatch to the Advertiser and Register, from Senatobia. October 25th, says the St. Louis Republican of the 24th contains a dispatch to General Craig from Major McDynald. He had just reached the railroad from a trip four miles into Richmond county, Kansas. A battle had been fought between the Kansas troops, under Blount, and the Confederates, under Price, on the 19th. Blount was defeated, with the loss of nearly all of his artillery. After, the battle, Price marched into Lexington, and at last accounts was crossing a portion of his forces to the north side of the river. The Republican contains the following: "Kansas City, October 22. "I have been pressed all day. This afternoon the enemy passed around my right flank, when I gave him heavy blows for several hours. I have heard firing to the east, and have just received a message from Pleasanton, who is fighting on the other side. [Signed] S. A. Cu
