Atlanta, G;., November 27. The city is full of
conSicrtng rumors of the battle at Chickamauga.
We bave lost many prisoners estimated at upwards
of 5,000. In tbe attack on Lookout Mouutain the
enemy's loss is greater than oars. They drove back
car force. Large numbers of tbe enemy charged on
Lookout Moutain, with 4.000 men at the same time
occupying the attention of oar right. At the foot of

The following Las been rceived from Newbern, the

Wilmington, state that Gea. Whitney, commanding
tbe rebel forces at that point, had left with a brigade
recently for Tennessee, and was relieved by Gen.
Martin, whose command in and near Wilmington
consists of only one small brigade. Runuing the
blockade into Wilmington continues to increase. It
is estimated that 500,000 worth of goods arrive
every 21 hours. Since North Carolina has been
nearly abandoned by the rebel troops, there being
bat tVu brigades in tbe State, it baa beeu decided by
tbe bmks, as a muter of safety, to dispose of tbeir
specie, which they are now paving out as fast as
possible to eilizeus of the State, giving SI in gold (or
$4 in North Carolina money.

Baltimore. December l'J. A dispatch from off
Charleston, dated December 13, says that General
Gilmore again shelled the city on Thursday night,
throwing a uamber of shells into ditrerent parts of
the city, and, as is believed, doing much damage.
All the rebel batteries opened, and a heavy bombard
ment endued for several hours. The storm is washing
awy the rebel obstructions, and yesterday a large
number of heavy timbers, bolted together with iron,
came down tbe river. Tbey were secured aud towed
ashore by tugs. The amount of timber that came
down is so large that it is believed that the obstruc

Charleston Harbor wai the famous floating battery
getting adrift ic the last gale and smashing through
the obstructions. She now lies (ashore) near the
north end of Morris Island.
A special Timet letter, that was received to-day
from a distinguished cfScer of the fleet off Charleston,
says: So far as visible, tbe only obstructions in
Charleston Harbor are a double line of piles across
tbe channel, from Fort Pickney to the middle groand.
From there to Fort Johnson there is an opening of
about two hundred feet. The writer thinks the
obstructions can be easily removed by tbe Monitors.
Tbe Herald's correspondent off Charleston says :
Admiral Dahlgren is preparing for a great movement,
and the ironclads will not leave till our flag waves
over Charleston or its rains. Sumter is still subject

the harbor. In the city darkness prevails at night,

to be lighted. There are no ltghts in tbe houses,
and nothing but Ciroine and terror rule in the city,
and were it not for the military leaders, the city
would be surrendered. Great activity prevails in
Gen. Burnside was closely besieged in Knoxville
for about one week, but succeeded in repelling the
besieging forces under Longstrret.
CtacixxATi. December 16. Advices from Knox
ville. fhe 10th inst.. state that tbe main body of
Longatreet's army was at Rogersville, Tenn. During
the retreat Long4trel lost ?.,XV men in prisoner-
and deserters. There were swarms of fugitives from
bis ranks, and his army was worn out by bard ser
vice, and were dispirited. Tbe retreating rebels were
sufieritig intensely for clothing and food. Longs treet
abandoned bis siege train of six guns, after burning
the gun carriages. The guns fell into our hands.
Two of cur heavy trains were met between Cumber
I.ind Gap and Knoxville with supplies for the array.
There were 30 days supplies at Knoxville when the
rebels retreated. Tbe people around Knoxville are
destitute ; tbe rebel army have consumed everything
eatable. Lougstreet's army is represented as being
demoralized to an extraordinary degree by hardships
and desertions while in Eastern Tennessee.
Wajiusgto. December 15ih. Telegrams have
been received here, last evening, from Knoxville, up
to yesterday morning. General Foster bad assumed
command of tbe troops lately under Burnside, and
tbe latter has departed for Cincinnati. All is quiet
in tbe vicinity of Knoxville.
PiiiLADFLPiiiA, December 22. By a gentleman
who left Richmond on the 20th, we have the follow
ing later information. He says: Richmond papers
of the 20th have dispatches from Bristol, Tennessee,
stating that Longstreet, with his army, was advanc
ing, and no doubt a severe battle would be fought in
the vicinity of Joncsbcro, Tennessee. Reinforcements
from Col. Jackson's and Gen. Sam Johnson's com
mands were going to Longstreet.

by the election of Schuyler Colfax as Speaker. The
President's Message will be found in the California
No Presidential Message has ever been more anx
iously looked for, or more carefully and critically
read. Its principal feature is tbe earnest desire to
prove that the Administration desires nothing so
much as tbe reconciliation aud reconstruction of tbe
dissevered States. While this admirable spirit is bo
manifest, it is evident that the President is prepared
for a long continued resistance on the part of a large
portion of the South. Regarding tbe two vital points
of interest. Slavery, and the reconstruction of the
Union, the President considers tbe Emancipation
Proclamation as an established fact and hclds that
tbe Proclamation has liberated all the slaves within
territory which it embraces, and all future action
must be based on that supposition. The President
does not aud will not adopt any policy which fails to
give tbe slave a vested right in himself. Appended
to the Message is a Proclamation offering a lull and
free pardon to all beueath a certain rank in tbe army
and navy, and to all civilians who have not been
leaders of the rebellion, who may be wearied, or
disheartened, or disgusted with the struggle.
The principal leaders of tbe rebellion are exempted
from tbe pardon, but the prospects of a somewhat less
generous clemency are extended even to them.
Washington. Dec. 17. On the 15th, over 2,000

Proclamation iu. Norfolk, by taking tbe oath of
Tbe twenty million appropiation bill to pay boun

tbe Enrollment Act shall be paid out on requisitions,
as in case of other public moneys ; and the money as
paid shall be kept iu tbe Treasury as a special deposit
applicable only to tbe expenses of draft, and for the
procuration of substitutes, aud for these purposes it
is hereby appropriated.
Tbe sentiment of Senators respecting tbe three
hundred dollar exemption has wholly changed.
Tbey will strike out the exemption claim, and not
insert any amount in its dace. The feeling is gen

vigorously prosecuted to the end.

New York, December 22. The Government has
decided that the safety of American vessels leaving
this port requires that no person be allowed to leave,
as a passenger or otherwise, on any American vessel,
without first receiving a passport from the Marshal
of this District. It is understood that a gunboat has
already been stationed at Sandy Hook to intercept all
vessels leaving this port by that outlet, and another
at Tl.rogg's Neck, to examine vessels leaving by the
Sound, with instructions to detain such as are with
out passes. Any one can obtain a proper passport
who cau bave his loyalty vouched for. The adoption
of this stringent measure is probably to prevent a
repetition of the Chesapeake affair.
Lettkbs of Marque Isci:i by the Mexican Pa

officer has returned from the United States, where he
bad been sent with a commission for the purpose of
purchasing and fitting out vessels of war, under let

already starting, for the purpose of -attacking and
destroying French commerce, more especially oti the
Pacific Ocer n.
The American 6tcamer Chesapeake on her way
from New York to Portland was captured on the Sth
of December oft Cape Cod by a gang of Canadian
pirates. Last Saturday rooming she was recaptured
by a U. S. vessel in Sambro harbor, some 20 miles
from Halifax, and all but three of her crew taken.
Uncle Sam being up to bis knees in a fight for the
integrity of his farm and the perpetuation of his free
institutions, has ample time to be courteous. So
Secretaries Seward and Welles telegraph to the British
Colonial authorities that, since we have reclaimed our
own in their waters, they, the Colonial authorities,
shall deal with the steamer and the pirates on board
as they see fit. The Chesapeake was, consequently,
turned over to the B'ue-noses, aod the pirates that
stole her went tbe same way. But a mob of ' prom
inent citizei s" rescued tbe pirates from the Nova
Scotian authorities, and hustled them o3 into parts

needed to carry on the Confederacy until the 30th
of June. 18C4. is four hundred and seventy-five mil
lions, and extending the estimates to include the en
tire year the amount will reach a billion four hun
dred and fifty millions, which, says the hopeful Sec
retary, Congress is formally called on to provide.
If tbe Confederacy should continue until the end of
1804 the debt will be two billions five hundred mil
lions. New York, December 16 A special telegram to
the Tribune, from Washington, says that a letter

Pensacola, at New Orleans, states that tbe embers
of a mutiny are gathering fast among the sailors ot
the men-of war in that harbor. It seems that a great
many of these sailors enlisted for one year. Their
time has expired, but the Navy Department being
pressed for men, was obliged to issue an order that
no sailors be allowed to come home, even if their
time had expired, until relieved by others. This
order, it is said, will be felt very severely, by a por
tion of our sailors. The officer who writes the in
formation fear a mutiny may be the reu!t.

By the arrival on Monday of the Halite Jackson,
Captain Hempstead, from San Francisco, we have
j papers from that place one day later than those by
j tbe FAdri ize and Comet. We extract tbe following:
j Chicago, Dec. 24th Nothing of importance in
. Congress. Both bouses have adjourned to the 5th
proximo. Gen. McClellan's report was transmitted
to tue nouse yesterday. ine report covers tne pe
riod from tbe 26th of July to Nov. 7tb.
Washington, Dec. 21 tb. The following was re
ceived to-day from Pocahontas county, Va., the 21st:
I have the horn r to report that I cut tbe Virginia
and Tennessee Railroad at Salem on the 16th, and
have arrived safely at the front with my command.
At Salem three depots were destroyed containing
2000 barrels of flour and a large quantity of wheat.
j corn, oats, and various other stores, together with
i cue hundred wagons. The telegraph wires were cut
and burned, and tbe track torn up, rails heated and
destroyed as much as possible in six hours time.
Five bridges and several culverts were destroyed,
and for an extent of 15 miles a large quantity of
bridge timber and repairing material was also de
stroyed. My march was retarded occasionally by
the tempest on the mountains and ice on the road.
I was obliged to swim my command, and draw my
artillery with ropes, across Scroggs' Creek, seven
times in twenty-tour hours. Ou my return I found
six separate commands under Early, Jones, Fitz Lee,
Imboden, Jackson, Reynolds and McCosliu, arrayed
in a line, extending from Stanton to Newport, upon
all the available loalj, to prevent my return. I cap
tured a dispatch from Gen. Jones to Gen Early, giv
ing me his position and that of Jacksou, at Clifton
Forge. I marched from the front of Jones to that of
Jackson, at night, anJ his outposts were pressed in
at a gallop by the 8th Virginia Mounted Infantry,
and two brigades crossed Jackson river, although
fagots had been piled, ready to ignite the bridge.
My column, four miles long, hastened across, regard
less of the enemy, until all but my ambulances and
a few wagons and one Regiment passed, when a
strong effort was made by tbe rebels to capture the
First Brigade, in which they did not succeed. The
ambulances and some sick men were lost, and by
daikness and difficulties the last Regiment was de
tained on the opposite side uutil morning, wheu it
was ascertained that the enemy seemed determined
to maintain their position up tbe cliffs which over
looked the bridges. So I caused the bridges, which
were long and high, to be destroyod, and the enemy
immediately changed position to the Sink and rear
of the detachment which was cut off." I sent orders
to the remnant to destroy our wagons, aud come
across the river over the mountains. They swam the
river with a loss of four men, who were drowned,
aud joined me. In tbe meantime the forces of the
enemy were concentrating, and moved over every
available road hut one, which was deemed by tbetn
to be impracticable, but by which 1 managed to cross
over the top of the Alleguanies with my command,
with the exception of four caissons, which were de
stroyed, in order to increase the teams of the pieces.
My loss is, six men drowned, one officer and four
men wounded ; four officers and ninety men missing.
We captured about 200 prisoners. My command has
marched, climbed and swam 355 miles since the 8th.

New York, Dec. 24th. The special telegram to
the Tribune, from Washington the 231, says inform
ation has been received here from London, by the
last European steamer, which states that all the Reb
el rams in England had been otfered to the Eoglish
Government at certain prices. Lord Clarence's an
swer, on the part of the English Admiralty, had been
written to the builders stating that no decided answer
could be given for the present, but the project was
before their Lordships for consideration.
Instructions have been sent from Secretary Welles,
to the commanding officers at the diJerent navy
yards, to bave a fleet of vessels ready to take position
at New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Baltimore and
other points, for the purpose of carrying out the new
regulations relative to passports of vessels aud pas
sengers. The special telegram to the Times, from Washing
ton, to the 24th, says that the President has sent into
the Senate the names of a lot of Major-Generals, ap
pointed during the recess. Among them is that of
Gen. Schofield. He is understood to recommend the
letter for the Middle Department in place of General
Schenck. There is a growing feeling in the Senate
that no more Major or Brigadier Generals should be
appointed than are actually required for the needs of
the army aud the interests of the country.
The Navy Department is going to build four case
mate steamships to carry 4 20 inch guns to be of
wrought irou 450 feet long, 5S feet beam, four cyl
inders, 90 inch stroke, 4 feet 2 inches propellers,

The steam transport Star of the South, from Hil
ton Head the 21st, states that the report of the Iron
sides and monitors being entangled in the obstruc

The monitor Lehigh, while on picket duty, near
Fort Johnson, got aground, and a rebel battery open
ed on her, doing considerable damage, when the other
two ironclads went to her assistance, and succeeded
in getting her off.
The Lehigh is eo badly damaged by the fire of the
rebel battery, that the Star of thz South had to tow
her to Hilton Head for repairs. No one on board
was injured. Gen. Gilmore is shelling Charleston
daily, from his 200 pounders, but nothing further of
importance had transpired.
The Herald's special telejram from Washington
the 23d, says : ' It is expected that Arkansas will
be represented at an early day in Congress. Ar
rangements are progressing in that State for an elec
tion, and there is reason to believe that a State Gov
ernment will be in operation there shortly. Congress
having failed to amend the Conscription Act previous
to adjournment for the holidays, the draft will proba
bly be postponed till the 1st of February, to give
Congress time to amend the law, which will proba
bly undergo a thorough revision. Iu the meautime
recruiting will be stimulated by bounties, etc.
A special to the Philadelphia Bulletin, says Long
street has joined Lee, and that the latter had crossed
the Rapid Ann, Meade fallinz back. There have

Convention, uow in sessiou in Phila ielpbia, has re
affirmed the nomination of Gen. McClellan for the
Presidency, and have nominateJ JuJge Campbell, of
Tennessee, as Vice President.
The Evening Post says it is understood that five
