, as if preparatory to another advance upon our flank and rear.
An effort will doubtless be made to reoccupy Lookout Mountain
, and get possession of the railroad from Chattanooga

, where the Federals
are reported to be reduced to one-quarter rations, they may have been stopped near Bridgeport
in order to be convenient to supplies.

was loaded with ammunition, clothing, and commissary supplies, all of which are said to be much needed by the Federal

Among other bridges destroyed by him was the one over Duck river

's corps, and Major Gen. Breckinridge

The weather is clear and cold.
