The rebels fired across the river with artillery upon the brigade, but with little effect. We expect a considerable fight tomorrow. [It will be seen by a Confederate telegram elsewhere in to-day's Dispatch that they got the "considerable fight," and were on the run for Knoxville when last heard from.] Nashville, Dec. 15.--There is a rumor here that Gen. Sheridan, commanding the column in pursuit of Longstreet, encountered the rebel rear guard east of Knoxville and sustained a heavy repulse, in which Gen. Sheridan is said to have been badly wounded.

Refinement has been extended to the campaign, and the same Republican impatience to secure for all ranks the distinctions granted in Europe only to the few, is enabling even the ordinary general officer to vie with the most potent imperial commander.

Finding, however, that he was determined to go, they all went with him. On their way to the bank they met with some one who offered to conduct them to a house, as he was going there himself.--After going through an alley, and up two or three flights of
