--A letter from Gen. Longstreet
's army, dated the 10th ult., gives the following account of the Yankee
's last forward move from Knoxville
, the present commander of the Federal
forces in this department has advanced with his entire effective force as far as Panther Springs
From some cause he halted and went into camp, there remained for some thirty six hours, when he about faced and returned to Mossy Cleek and New Market
He came with fifteen days rations and evidently intended a further advance than where he came to; but suddenly coming up with the forces of General Longstreet
he came to a terminus of his expedition, and does not seem inclined to move any further.
His forces consist of three corps of infantry and a small amount of cavalry.
Aside from this move there are no demonstrations whatever on the part of the enemy.
In the direction of Cumberland Gap
all is quiet Gen. Jones
continues to pick up the scouting parties of the enemy in that vicinity.
