hope is that our military authorities give
them no credence, and base upon them no.
action that may prove our undoing if the
report proves false. The rebels urea wily,
and dangerous foe, and wo get along
best with them when tbeir fighting quali
ties are best appreciated and so provided
for. If we warn our readers to receive all
this class of rumors with caution, wc shall
so best prepare them for events in store.
It Is very easy from any stand-point to ju
bilate at good news. It is more difficult
to summon philosophy to bear disaster, for
which we are wholly unprepared.
There is a great batil e to be fought, and
a decisive victory to be gained over these
rebels before wc end this war with their
Submission. AH these preliminary ad
juncts of starvation and demoralization
may do very well to take the temper out
of the enemy, but it will not do to trust
these alone.

• When I last wrote yon at Oyler’a Ferry, I
was seek Log Croft’s division. AtSbellmound
Ihfre was a pontoon bridge when we left for
Chattanooga a few days previous, and we
went thither in the hope of being able to
cross It. Onr enterprise wma fruitless, bs
cause juetaswcarrived at the Northwesters
terminus of the bridge, Bt. Clair Morton,.
with bis pontoon brigade, had just begun to
take up the northern terminus. There was
nothing left but to retrace our steps and
seek transit at Rankin’* Ferry. There we
learned tba t Qes. Cruft bad moved to White
ride, and after a night’s rest at the unchinked
cabin of one of the natives,-we were ferried
over. Just beyond Running Water Bridget
Gen. Croft had established his headquarter*,
near the Whiteside Railway Station, and one
of the cfficeis having made a requisition
upon a neighboring mill for the lumber, we
planked our tents and began to be com
There ore In the vicinity of 'Whiteside sev
eral excellent coal mines, which are shortly
to be worked on Government account. The
eehm crops out perhaps five hundred feet
above the valley, and is from four to eight
'feet thick. It. was from that, and the mines
on the Cumberland range which lies be
yend the Sequatchie Valley,J that the Con
federates obtained their carboniferous fad.
They are called the Etna, Whietalde, and Ra
coon Mince, and are fully equipped with rail
ways, shoots, train ways, and carts for doing
a large and successful business. The valley
and the sides of the mountains are inhabited
by colliers, from Wales, and there is but little
fear that enough can be mined to supply the
wants of our troops at Chattanooga and else
where, and to keep the stesmers moving on
the rivers as long as there shall he occasion
to use them.
At Whiteside there are two gaps, which re
quire to be fortiQed to prevent the sudden in
cordon cf au enemy Irom Trenton. Long
before this will reach you, it «1Q he done,
and that portion of the route will become al
together cafe.
"We had just finished up our tents, and be
gan to look comfortable, when an orderly
came tearing along thd road with an order
for the establishment of headquarters at
Shell Mound. It is no use for a soldier to
grumble, so, on the following day. we started
for ten miles down the river, and pitched our
tents in a beautiful grove on the bank of the
Tennessee. The same clearing up ot the
ground, pitching tests, planking and building
ot chimneys, left us in contemplation ot the
situation, with an excellent degree ot satis
faction. That pleasure was short lived, for,
tc-day, we are ordered to Bridgeport. There
is no use repining. We are resigned. If the
authorities should order us to pi ch out tents
atd establish headonarters in the Tennessee,
wc should try it, ' We leave to-morrow.
The late attack upon Hooker's Army in
Lookout Valley, turns ont to have been more
destructive, on both sides, than was a v . first
supposed Over three hundred dead have
been interred. Of these, by for the greater
portion were rebels. 1 am not able to give
our exact lore, but should estimate it as full
three hundred and fifty killed and wounded.
Spies are among the most effective agents In
the hands of generals to enable them to work
out theirplans successfully. There Is a certain
degree of odium attached to the profession in
which is undeserved. An intelligent spy can
do the loyal cause moregood than a large army
and if through pure motives of patriotism, he
chsoees to risk his neck to give us valuable
information, he should not be forced to en
counter obloquy besides. An instance of this
kind of patriotism occurred to-day which de
serves to be perpetuated. A Lieutenant of
the BCth Indiana Volunteers has just returned
from a trip to Atlanta and Borne, and has
given' me a vivid description of the rebel
situation. I wish I was at liberty to give Ms
name and some of the mere startling revela
tions he makes, but I would not compro
mise him, in case of capture, by the former
course, and the latter were designed for his
employers and should not be published. 1
gay enough to induce a well founded con
viction that the end is approaching. He left
Atlanta on the 23d of last month and has
since visited every portion of the rebel army.
I will not attempt to relate the means he
need to worm himself Into the confidences of
the rebel officers, but he did it. Bragg’s
army, he estimates at 80,000 men, inclu
ding all taoops on detached ser
vice and at other stations than Borne, At
lanta and Chattanooga Valley. He fully con
fitms all previous reports of disastletaction
in the army and out of it. The Sonth can
never endure another campaign if the present
one is unsuccessful. There is not food
enough, he says, in the Confederacy to fur
nish two month's rations for the army and
the citizens. The published lists of prices
are not exaggerated!
The fortifications at Atlanta and Borne are
rot extensive; not more formidable than
these found at Chattanooga upon our first
occupation of it. The country is naturally
easily defended without extensive fortifica
tions. If we succeed in dislodging the rebels
from Lookout Mountain and Chattanooga,
theywiU retire to the Coosa Elver. They
have abandoned all hope of taking Chatta
coega, but, with the large reinforcements
they have received, and are dally receiving
from Virginia, they expect to cross the Ten
nested and take possession of the Nashville
,t Chattanooga Bafiroad, and thus compel the
Union army to Ml hack upon Knoxville and
•he Ohio Elver, while they obtain peaceable
repoEsettionof Chattanooga.
The river, you have -doubtless heard, is in
corporation, and steamboats are running
rally between Bridgeport and Kelly's Ferry.
This enables us altogether to dispense with
that fearful wagon route over Waldron’s
Bidge. Besides the river, we have an excel
lent wagon road along the river bank, over
which pass heavily laden trains, requiring
scarcely two days to make, the transit from
Bridgeport to Chattanooga. This solves the
supply question. Food and forage ate now
arriving in abundance, and there Is an end to
the starvation of horses and mules and to
quarter rations for the men.
In that portion of Lookout Valley where
the wagon road was exposed to the rebel fire
from the tiunpit of Lookout, a new road has
been comtructed which removes the trains
cut of danger.
There is little charge in the situation at
Chattanooga The enemy menace ns as stern
ly as ever, and drop an occasional shell inside
the works, without as much as “by your
There are rumors that a fight was in pro*
gress yesterday, in Lookout valley, but from
the fact that no Intelligence has reached head*
quarters of it, and that we are near enough to
have heard the fixing if it were in progress, I
do not place any reliance upon its truthful
ness. Very likely a picket fire or recouaols
since was mistaken, by some demoralized
a an, fora “battle.**
Some prominent member of the “ dam*
phool” family, X notice, Is telegraphing from
Nashville, that the authorities have built a
railroad to Jasper, and thereby the difficulty
of passing supplies to Chattanooga over
Waldron’s Ridge was largely reduced If not
entirely done away with. Just say to that
associated press reporter that he “Isn’t up”
in his geography. If he had clambered up
end down Waldron’s Ridge as many times as
bos your correspondent, and seen the thou
sand of dead horses and mules that lino the
roads and mountain passes, he would have a
realizing sense of the fact, that Waldron’s
Ridge lies bettceen Jasper and Chattanooga,
and must be cscendtd and descended before
mpplies can reach the fortified city by war
of Jasper.
“Mack,” the correspondent of the Cincin

Lee Declines a Battle—The Sit-
Wasuikoton, Nor. 10.—All quiet on the
Rappahannock to day.
"Washington, Not. 10. —The New York
/I'jt'a correspondent at headquarters say?:
There was alittla fighting to-day on the south
ern bank of the Rappahannock, bat it wu of no
importance. It is not improbable that a groat
battle will be fought wltbio a day or two, and
has perhapsheenfought today. AU depends
on Ger. Lee. If he will stand for a battle,
one is pretty certain to occur. Gen. Meade
started out, tlfia-time, bent on a decisive con
flict with the enemy. He was urged to it by
the President, Secretary Stanton and Geo.
Halleck. He was not at all averse, especially
vtder the present circumstances. The army
is In excellent trim. In numbers it must be
superior to the enemy by at least 10,000, and
perhaps 80,000, There is no reason to fear
defeat, and there are many reasons for believ
ing that Lee w3l be compelled to- fill back
still farther Into the heart of Virginia.
Washington, Nov. 10.— From information
which has reached. Washington to night, the
messenger leaving the army of the Potomac
at 10 o’clock this morning, it appears that
Qen. Buford yesterday reached a point two
miles North of Culpepper, driving the rebel
cavalry and infantry before him.
Gen. Lee's headquorfers on Saturday night
were at fßrandy Station, on the Rappahan
nock. This refutes toe belief cuirent in
bozco quarters that he had gone South to ad
vise with Bragg.
Our army lay in Use of battle all day yes
terday, but Lee declined to accept the issue
of an engagement.
Gen. Kilpatrick occupied Pony Mountain
yesterday p. zn. Last night he discovered a
large area of camp fires south of the Rapldan,
between Raccoon Ford and Rapldan Station,
on the railroad. No fires of magnitude were
discovered in and around Culpepper.
This leads to the loference that Lee has de
cllnedto risk a genera) engagement in the
open field, and withdrawn nis forces, except
a rear guard, to his former strong position.
All the evidence tends to prove tbit Gen.
Meade has again outgeneraled Lee by leading
him to believe that It was his intention to
move down the neck opposite Fredericks
burg, thus inducing the latter to weaken his
front here to strengthen that point.
Washington, Nov. 10.—The streets are
foil oi rumors in regard to what Geo. Meado
Intends to accomplish in this campaign, most
of which’are mere surmises on the part of
those who circulate them. There seems to
be no reason to donbt. however, that this Is
an earnest movement, having a definite and
important object,-which wul.lu connection
.with other movements of the Union army go
far towards establishing the fact that Itfra re
bellion is essentially played out, and so re
duce Its territorial limits as to deprive it of
all pretense to importance and respectability.

Tribune's Washington special, last night says:
“No considerable opposition was offered to

and our advancing columns.
“ A brigade of Buford’s cavalry encountered
a brigade of rebel cavalry at Waterloo bridge
yesterday morning, and after a short fight
drove them across the river. Having orders
to proceed in another direction, the pursuit
was not followed, up. Last night Buford’s
cavalry cccupled Culpepper, and the mala
body of the army is in the vicinity of Brandy

tlogthe passage of the Elver.
Meanwhile It Is -reported that a movement
Is being made by another column in a more
southerly direction, and reports of Kilpatrick
being ia possession of the heights back of
Fredericksburg are reiterated.
It Is furthermore stated that Lee Is not with
his forces in front of Meade, but that A. P.
Lee and Ewell are is command. Lee Is re
ported to have gone to Chattanooga, and pris
oners token make the usual brags of how
Meade will be soon whipped, and give out
mysterious hints os to his being drawn into a
trap. .The rebels confirm the reported destitu
tion in their army, ard North Carolina troops
captured declare that they will not again take

Impossible for the rebels, who are starving
themselves, to supply it. Already another
bread riot, oi which the papers make no men

scarcity of food is the entire worthlessness of

to sell, but not to give away for paper rags,

New Xobk, Nor. 19.—A Washington special
to the TfbrWsays:
It is hinted that a considerable Union force
bos started, or Is about to start, up ths Pen
insula toward Richmond. It is stated that
the artillery roads constructed under orders
of McClellan are in superb condition, and
will greatly facilitate the movement against
the enemy. .
The entire army crossed the Rappahannock
yesterday, without any incident of Import
Advices, received otherwise In Washington,
state that the rebel army seems to be moving
towards the Rapidan, as yet taking no posi
tion for accepting battle. Our troops com
mand all - the roads approaching Fredericks
burg from tbe northwest, while some of them
hold that town and Falmouth to-day.
TheNewTork Tunes' Washington dispatch
says; “Officers from, the front this evening
say Culpepper has been occupied by our
troops, and onr cavalry has reconnoitered as
far as the Rapidan, without meeting tbe reb

sion among military men is that Lee's entire
force la in full retreat for Richmond, and that
it will make do effort to retard our advance

A dispatch brought from the front says
heavy cavalry skirmishing was going on all
the afternoon southwest of Culpepper, to
ward Madison Court House. The only rebel
force this side ol the Rapidan is Stuart's cav
alry, who are covering the rebel retreat.
Outrage In Southern Illinois,
Caiso, Nov. 10.—On Monday night last a
party of men, pretending to be omcera and
soldiers searching for deserters In the South
part of Williamson county, in this State,
went to a house occupied by two brothers,
Joseph and David Robinson, well-known
Union men, and called them out, when mak
ing known their pretended business, they
compelled the brothers Robinson to go with
them. Horses were saddled In a few minutes
and the parties moved off in the direction
where deserters were known to be secreted.
Nothing occurred to arouse suspicion, till,
suddenly, while crossing apiece of timber,
several oi the party fired, and David Robin
son fell dead with a ballet through his brain.
Jcseph Immediately sprang from hla horse
and ran into a thicket. Sixteen shots were
fired at him, one tnMng effect in his shoul
der. Inflicting a severe wound.
This band of cowardly assassins Is un
known. No cause Is assigned for the out
rage, other than that the murdered and
wounded men were staunch friends of the
Union. Williamson county is filled with de
serters. .

/Editors Tribune While Chicago Is mourn
ing over the crash of Rush street bridge, does .it
{occur to the city authorities or the citizens sad ba
-1 stores men, who patronise Rash and adjoining
streets, what a convenience at this time a bridge
aaoes the river at State street would be? Even
the denizens of Clark street, in view of the rush
and jam through their bridge, must abate some
what of their hostility to the proposed bridge oa
State street, for the sake of once more getting a
free passage to their dinners. *
One year ego It was alleged the city would build

if we may believe the report of mors than ooa In

a Clark street merchant, this summer, “ Stats
