Augusta, Nov. 12.—Savannah Republican this morning is informed by a gentleman from the interior) that the bridges over Chickema go Creek were burned by discharged hands, and not by Unionists. A negro who escaped from Hilton Head says he heard federal officers say their loss at the battle of Port Royal were forty killed. Gen. Lee in Savannah. Nothing positively known of the movements of the federal?. Charleston Courier this morning learns from a friend just arrived, that Bluffton, on Sunday, was in possession of our forces. Beaufort deserted, and virtually in posses sion of the enemy. It is believed no attemp's to landing have been made, except a few thieving excursionists, who were captured by brig Betsy Ames, and brought to. Augusta, Nov. 14.—Georgia planter’s con vention adopted reso utions endorsing defensive position of the Government; recommending dis criminating duty of twenty per cent on pro ductions of United States; also, cotton plan ters should, if the war continue, and present crop remain indisposed of; not plant next spring beyond the wants of home consump WIV7J1. Savannah, Nov. 13.—Federal fleet report ed passed Fernandina this morning, South ward bound.. Great activity in strengthening the defence of city. Confidence restored—gen eralfeeling of security prevails. FROM SOUTH CAROLINA. Charleston, November 13.— A special despatch to Savannah announces the arrival of Captain Anderson with a Confederate steamer from Europe, with large quantities of arms and ammunition. FROM TENNESSEE. Nashville, Nov. 12. — Union & American publishes to-morrow an address to the people of Tennessee, by Gov. Harris, calling upon them to furnish every double-barrel shot gun and rifle they have, to arm troops now offer ing their services, lie says the State must, and to the full extent of her resources shall be protected. He declares he has resolved to ex haust ever}' resource of the State, before the foot of the invaders shall polute the soil of Tennessee. Parties arrived to day from East Tennessee report great excitement and fears of a general outbreak. Five men have been arrested, charged with being concerned in burning bridges. Gen. Mitchell, commanding the department of Ohio and Kentucky, has resigned, because of unsatisfactory relations with Gen. Sher man. Gen. Rosseau also resigned—cause as signed, ill health. Nashville, Nov. 13.—Yankee troops con tinue to pour into Kentucky. Regiment from Western Virginia arrived at Louisville on the 4th. Two Ohio regiments started from Gin cinnati for Louisville on the 5th. Ten regi ments from Ohio, Indiana and the North ex pected to arrive at Louisville last week. Madisonville, Hopkins county, occupied 1000 federal infantry and 500 cavalry, on the tenth. Southern men compelled to fly to avoid arrest. Robt. Bunker, Ex-Mayor ef Mobile, and Andrew Lowe, a merchant of Savannah, ar rested in Cincinnati, and taken to Fort Warren, Boston Harbor, on the 5th, by order of Secre tary Seward. Both gents recently returned from Europe, and were arrested on suspicion, having important information for rebels. I..O . I dition, says it is manifestly not intent of the Lincoln government to attempt to capture yet the large Southern seaports, but thinks New Orleans, Mobile and Savannah could be taken without mu h blood. The retention of those cities, however, would be much more serious matter. A lodgment on an Island or series of Islands, that command important harbors, with a view to future operations is manifestly the object of the expedition. Memphis, Nov. 1^.—Gen Ilalleck takes Fremont’s place, and Buell supercedes Sher man in Ky. The Chicago Tribune admits a defeat at Belmont, and thinks it is time to be gin to inquire into the cause of so many de feats. The Yankee prisoners captured at Bel mont, arrive here to-morrow.

There is no mis take, the people are fast losing confidence in the Administration. mOM WASHINGTON. Washington, Nov. 7.—Trial of a number of persons, under indictment of treason, com menced at Baltimore to day, befoie Justices Taney and Yates. Curiosity expressed as to the course likely to be pursued by Taney. Gov. Morgan and Senator Har ris have sent despatches to Gen. Wool, asking him to delay his contemplated resignation, and continue his present position. It is not improbable that the Government will at an early day assume responsibility of a general exchange of pn soners. Indications are that Gen. Buell will be as signed command of the department ot Cum berland, and relieve Sherman, who probably will return to the army of the Potomac. FROM RICHMOND VIA. NEW ORLEANS. Richmond, Nov. 13 -Despatch from Lynch burg says tile following was received this morning from East Tennessee: Jonk'Boro, Nov. 13. — Union men have a camp from one thousand to thitteen hundred men at Elizabethtown, near the North Caroli na line, about twenty miles from Bristol, and another of seven hundred men near Strawber ry Plains, both of which are increasing, und they threaten to take po-session of the Rail road and burn the bridges.

Federal loss, killed 207, counted 140 woun ded, 200 prisoners. This unequal loss re sulted from the fact that our forces success fully ambuscaded the federals. News of the capture of Mason and Slidell has been communicated to the War Depart ment Nothing of interest from Manassas, or any other of the camps. Richmond, Nov. 17.—The Dispatch, extra, contains interesting items from the Baltimore American of the 13th; The report of the successful battle of the federals at Piketon or Pikeville, Ky., is all humbug. Geneiab Ilalleck and Buell had left Wash f ... ik.. ,4 Despatches from Washington, dated 12th confirm report of federal reconnoisance oppo site Occoquan, with eighteen thousand troops.
