The public generally are iuvited to attend. The lecture- will commence at 7 o'clock. Fire. An illustrious and cherished friend of ours, while walking up'the levea yesterday morning, in company with his his gay and festive comrades, became sensible of the smell of fire, which elici ted from him severul inquiries in regard to its locality. After walking some distance, one of his associates pointed to our friends new and uniquely shaped chapeau, on which a spark bad fallen, aud an interesting conflagration was fast spreading The result was a hole' in the rim of the hat about the size and shape of a dime, if any one remembers the size and shape of that ancient coin. Thanksgiving Lay. Services will be"'- Leld to-day iu the First (O. S.) Pre-by-terian Church, at 10$ o'clock. Rev. A.

We are told that some of our merchants are shaving the county i .1 J L .1. n . Commissioners to the families of soL diers, and in some case they compel the j wives of soldiers to pnrchase articles j they do not need by refusing to make " change " where a person bays less than the amount of the order. This is a burning shame and an outrage, and the actors should be held up to the public scorn of the community. Kverybody knows that Vanderburgh county orders are almost, if not. altogether, as good as greenbacks, and, at the profit at which merchants sell goods, all can do well by taking the orders at par. The man who would speculate off the necessities oi a soldier's wife is unworthy of a place in jtke loyal States. A Failure The Draymen failed to respond to the call to distribute the wood donated by the farmers of Vanderburgh coun y to the families of soldiers. This surprised us greatly, as we had 1 .1 IJ L - . . a- suppoieu uey wouiu ue mosi, prompt io respond to this call of patriotism and hu manity.

From Chattanooga. Important from Chattanooga Hlgh Sueeeaafhl Preliminary Movement Fine Positions Obtained In the Kn emy'a, Front Two Hundred Prison era Taken. Washington, November 24. The Star of this afternoon will contain the follow ing account of a brilliant preliminary movement by General Thomas, dated Chattanooga, 23d: The reconnoissance in force made bv General Thomas has been completed in the most brilliant and successful man ner. The troops employed were tho divis ions of Generals Wood and Sheridan, of the 4th corps, under the immediate direction of General Alger. The object of the movement was not only to ascertain the strength of the en emy, but to occupy and hold the knolls in front of our left, half way between our lines and Missionary Ridge. 1 he princinal attack was made by Gen. Hazen's brigade. The entire fieid was distinctly visible from and in front of Fort Wood, where General Hazen's line of battle was formed. General Howard's corps formed in a olid column, as a reserve for the at tacking party. Iho held beMng commanded by the heavy guns of the fort, only one fir-Id battery was taken into action ; thia was planted on an elevated knoll, in the cen tre of which General Sheridan's line of battle was formed. Before the order to advance was given, the troops moved ont of their position just before 1 o'clock P. M., and remained in line tor three-quarters ot an hour, in Hi 11 view ot the enemv. At last, every thing being ready, Gen. Granger gave the order to advance, and Gens. Hazen and Wilhch pushed out simultaneously. Thp first shot was fired at 2 P. M., and in five minutes the lines of Gen. Hazen were hotly engaged, while the artillery of Wood and Gen,. Thomas opened upon the rebel rifle pits and the camps behind .1 i- c I. mi . tne line aa ngniing. ine practice oi our gunners was splendid. The camps and batteries of the enemy were only about one and three-quarter miles distant, but our fire elicited no reply, and it was soon evident that the rebels had no heavy ar tillery in part of their entrenchments. Uur troops rapidly advancing, as if on parade, occupied the knolls, upon which they were at twenty minutes past 2 o clock. I en minutes later (ren. Willich, dlrriw across an open field, carried the rifle pits in his front, whose occupants fled as they fired their last volley, and Gen. Sheridan, moving through the for est that stretched before him, drove in the rebel pickets and halted his advance, in obedience to orders, on reaching the rifle pits where the rebel force 1 as. His attack was, however, made, the design being to recover the heights on our left, but not to assault the rebel works. We have taken about 200 prisoners, mostly Alabama troops, and have gained a posi tion of great importance should the reb els still attempt to hold Chattanooga Val ley, as, with these heights in our posses sion, a column moving to turn Mission- Advance on Lookout Mountain Hooker Half-way Up Desperate Fighting Monday's Position Held Part of Missionary Ridge Held by Sherman. Chattanooga, Nov. 24 Operations to-day have been confined to movements on the left, and an assault by Hooker with Greary's division and Stanbury's division, and one division of Sherman's corps, on Lookout mountain. I have been cut off from Hooker, and can only send the result up to dark, as sent to Gen. Thomas. He had advanced half up the mountain, driving the enemy be fore him. The engagement has been very desperate. On the center we have sustained our position as taken yesterday by Granger s troops, f aimer has been demonstrating down the Chattanooga Valley without becoming engaged or : pushing very far. Gen. Howard's corps crossed Citico Creek to-day, and by noon had foraaed a junction witn Sherman. Sherman's corps was thrown across 'he river near the Chicaraauga. At day light the river was poutooned. During the afternoon Gen. Sherman moved up and took position on the north end of Missionary Ridge. The enemy made no resistance, but remained quiet but in force 6u the aext peak of the ridge south from "Sherman.
