We have taken some prisoners belonging to the rebel Gen. Grocie's brigade. The whole movement was made with a well contrived plan to cut off and capture Gen. Shacklcford and his command. A heavy force of rebel cavalry moved down tho left bank of the Holston river with the intention of crossing at Kelly's ford and coming in his retor. This portion of the programme was checked by Gen. Ferrero, who sent tho brigade of Gen. Humphrey to hold the ford. The rebels fired across the river with artillery upon the brigade, but witn iitue enect. We expect a considerable fight to-mor row.'

The Rich mond Whig, in an editorial, says: The At lanta Confederacy asserts that our cavalry advanced on the loth upon Ringgold, find ing the country clear of the encinv. They proceeded thence to Lookout Mountain and Mission Ridge. Here they found noth ing but tho remains of the enemy's camps. A portion seemed to have been deserted Saturday last.

The presumption is a heavy col umn has gone after Ixuigstreet and an ex pedition started into West Tennessee tolook ufter Forest, who hits taken advantage of the absence of Sherman's corps. The Whig also says : Although there ap pears to be no doubt of the movements of Averill from the Kanawha in the direction of East Tennessee and Virginia, the War Department has received no additional In telligence from that quarter. The enemy's movements, so far as known, seem to indi cate a raid on the railroad, or probably upon the counties of Bolletour, Rockbridge and Augusta. , From Washington. Washington. Dec. 10.

Butler, recently issued, has worked wonders in reclaiming to their allegiance to the Government sympathizers with reb els in that department. Its operation in Norfolk Saturday last, when a number of hitherto noted oppositionists to the Govern ment voluntarily came in and took the oath of allegiance. On Monday the number of applicants for certificates of loyalty was so great they, could hardly be accommodated. The probabilities decidedly are that Con gress will repeal the three Hundred dollar clause in the enrollment act. The Military committee of the Senate Is believed to be in favor of doing so, and it is not unlikely they will attach a section to that effect to the amendatory bill introduced by Senator Wilson.

No order relating to hlin has been, and probablynonb will be Issued until a suitable successor to command the Department of Missouri can be decided upon, and also a new command found for Gen.
