Marietta (Georgia, United States) (search for this): article 2
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*
Blountsville (Tennessee, United States) (search for this): article 20
Damage at Blountsville. --The Bristol Advocate, of Friday, gives the following as the amount of damage done at Blountsville, Tenn., by the late raiders: It is a sad task for us to state that the larger and better portion of the town of Blountsville was reduced to allies. W. W James, John Powell, John Fain, Sr., Dr. N. G. Dulaney, E P Cawood, Rev. N C Baldwin, Mrs. Martha Rhea, F L Bumgardner, and Maj J G Eans, are among those whose houses and effects were consumed. The court-house, with the offices of the clerks of the county and jail, were also consumed. The loss is immense, not less than half a million of dollars.

A small tornado visited Danville, Va., on Friday morning, carrying off with it the roof of the Methodist College.

said to feel a little settled at the public receptions given to the Russian officers, and let slip no opportunity to manifest their chagrin. Already several have taken place. The committee to examine the harbor of New York state that they consider it in a perfect state of defence, and that a hostile vessel, in attempting to enter it, would be exposed to the fire of eight hundred guns of the heaviest calibre. A deserter from the Richmond Battalion, named Charles Hutchens, of Brooklyn, N. Y., has arrived in Washington. The St. Louis Republican denies that either Sherman's corps or Smith's division has gone to Chattanooga. Gold was quoted in New York, Friday, at 143¼ First Board, and 142⅝ Second Board Va. 6's 61½, North Carolina's Later Form Europe. The steamer Saxonia with European advices to the 22d ult., passed Cape Race yesterday, (1st. inst.) The London Times says that Mr. Mason had notified Fart Russell that he had been instructed to from England,
Harper's Ferry (West Virginia, United States) (search for this): article 18
From Northern Virginia. --We received yesterday no late or important news from the line of the Rapidan. Passengers by the Central train were unable to furnish even a rumor from the army of Gen. Lee, from which it is reasonable to infer that no military movements looking to active operations are in progress. From the Valley we learn that Major Gilmore's battalion made a raid in Jefferson and Clarke counties in the early part of last week. The Yankees at Charlestown, becoming alarmed, left the place during Tuesday night, and our men entered the same night, and at last accounts were still there. Charlestown is eight miles from Harper's Ferry. The last accounts we had from the latter point represented the Federal force there to be about 6,000. They have been sent off, however, to strengthen Rosecrans or Meade. When at Charlestown Major Gilmore is but five miles from the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad. We hope to hear that he has tapped that road.

as soon as he did. His blow was given with skill and crushing effect. If it had only been followed up with other rapid blows upon the arrival of his remaining reinforcements possibly still more gratifying results might have been accomplished. But this is not certain, and let us not be too fast to find fault. As it is, let us see what were he fruits of our victory. In the first place, we captured 7,000 well prisoners; these will go far towards equalizing our losses at Vicksburg and Port Hudson. In the next, we took 40 stands of colors, 38 guns (of which Longstreet's command brought off 27,) 25,000 small arms, 150 wagons, and several thousand cartridge boxes, and knapsacks with their contents. This is a good showing--one that speaks for itself — and will pass for a great victory in any country. But this is not all; indeed, it is the least part of the glorious result. By a single battle we succeeded in expelling the invader from the soil of Georgia, the teeming Egypt of the C

s blood. The "River of Blood"--if this was an appropriate name for the crooked, gliding, serpent-shaped river in the days of the Indian, recent events have given to it a yet stronger claim to that sanguinary title. The ground upon which the battle was fought is slightly undulating, except where it approaches the mountain spurs and ridges on the west, and is covered with heavy timber, with occasional patches of cleared land here and there. The timber is not so thick as that around Chancellorsville, where the undergrowth is almost impenetrable, but resembles more the woods about Shiloh, where the troops were manœuvered with comparative ease. The artillery could take but an inconsiderable part in the battle in consequence of the timber and the level character of the ground. On the left next to Missionary Ridge the ground is broken into hills and valleys, but the primeval forest still remains, and consequently the most skillful artillerist could accomplish, but little. It is

nd our entire army passed over. This plan was frustrated, according to report, by a counter movement which is explained in the following order of the Federal General Thomas. This order was found upon the person of Adj't Gen. Mubleman, of Gen. Palmer's staff, who subsequently fell into our hands. Headq'rs 14th Army Corps,Nxander Mill. If you advance as soon as possible on them in front, while I attack them in flank, I think we can use them up. Respectfully, your ob't serv't, Geo. H. Thomas, Major-Gen'l Jr. Commanding. This was Saturday morning. The counter attack upon the front and flank of our flanking column was made with vigor soon after it had crossed the river, and in accordance with the plan suggested by Gen. Thomas, and if not entirely successful, it was sufficiently so to disarrange our plans and delay our movements. The inquiry may arise in the mind of the reader why Gen. Bragg did not postpone the attack until all his reinforcements could get up?

oga, engaged in killing hogs. They professed to belong to Crittenden's corps, and said that they were starving, had not been in the fight, and had no stomach for it. All the prisoners — some of them field officers — with whom our informant had conversed admitted that they had been badly defeated, but said that they would whip us the next time. They admit that in the attack by Longstreet's and Hill's corps on Rosecrans's centre, composed of their heaviest crack corps — Crittenden's and Thomas's — these two corps lost fully one half of their men. On Friday night last, Wheeler's and Forrest's cavalry left under orders, crossing the river, provided with ten days rations. Our informant says that among the pieces of ordnance captured we have several line Napoleon and 20 pounder Parrott guns. He says we can easily shell any part of the enemy's lines. We had thrown shell to the railroad depots, made a body of Yankees scamper away from the fan yard between the city and Looko
