The recent Arrests.

--A letter dated near Chattanooga, October 1st, says:

‘ Yesterday was a day of great talk among the military, on account of the arrest of Generals Polk, Hindman, and Forrest. I understand the circumstances to be as follows: On Sunday night Gen. Bragg ordered Gen. Polk to attack the enemy at daylight on Monday morning vigorously, and follow him up, which was not done. This was reported to the President, and the order for arrest came from him. The order for Gen. Hindman's arrest came from the same quarter, and was for his failure to destroy the division of the Federal army in McLemore's Cove on the 11th ult. Gen. Hindman then had command of his own and two of Gen. Buckner's divisions, and Gen. Hill was assisting with two divisions from the other side of the mountain, through Dug Gap.
