To secure the train I moved Oabell in the road toward Camden, left Marmaduke in rear—moved Maxey's division in front of the train, and requested Fagan,who wan on the middle Camden road, to hold that position, and reinforced him with Gano's brig- ade of Max ay's division. This made the road over which the captured property passed; as safe as it could be with the force in hand.— About thirty wagons without teams, and some broken, were burned on the field. About one hundred, and seventy with team3, and every thing complete were saved. The artillery also. The enemy's torce was about twenty five hundred. At no time did we have that many engaged.

CLARKSVILLE SATURDAY, SEPT. 3d 1864. CHARLES DeMORSE, Proprietor Vol. 20 No 47. From the Macon Intelligencer, 3d ist. CAPTURE OF GEN. STONEMAN, AND MOST OF HIS RAIDERS. f On Monday noon, rumors began to fly through the city that Stoneman, and hU command were captured on their way to this cky. About five o'clock in the evening, hundreds of people of all sexes flocked to the bridge to see the prisoners as they passed. Gen. Iverson, the captor, with a strong escort soon came into view, with General Stoneman, and staff in custody. The cavalcade passed to Camp Oglethorpa to be registered, and placed in Headquarters. An immense number of curiosity seekers follow- ed, exhibiting on their smiling faces, the comfort, the capture of the party gave to them. We visited the prisoners at the military prison, and by the courtesy of the genilemanly and effi- cient commandant of the post, Col. Gibbes, was permitted to see, and converse with the'prisoners. They look very much worn,and considerably de...

Last night's courier line brought nothing new. jA Passenger from Shreveport reports itcur- rent there, that Hood had been reinforced, and driven Sherman back to the Chattahooehie. It wa« apparent enough before the abandonment of Atlanta, that he should have been reinforced if practicable. If Sherman is driven back now, the bad effect is but temporary. Still it would fiave been good policy to allow not a days jubilation to the enemy. Why the loug line of Sherman's com- munication with his base pf supplies, has not been cut before this, has been a matter of wonder to many. Certainly somewhere on the long line of route from Louisville to Atlanta, an energetic cav" airy commander, with even a small force might have interrupted communication, and forced Sher- man to fall back. The latest jiubrmation from Arkansas is, that Price has returned to the South side o( the Ar- kansas,and awaits battle with the enemy near Mon- ticello. The enemy are said to have been reinfor- ced by Grierson, fro...

—L<——^3T——I lip Ml II Ml The Latest News, Our readers will see that the dispatch from Slireveport, of the 2t5th, which has since been confirmed, by later letters, show all favorable on the other side. Sherman is exhausted, and has fallen back to Atlanta, his communications are cut, and he will be pushed for supplies, an d perhaps amunitions of war shortly. The siege of Mobile is reported abandoned. All is well in Virginia. It is said that Grant's movements show an intention to winter before Petersburg. This is a course to which our commander will have no objections—a course much more ex- hausting to the enemy than to us. From Arkansas we have official report of the capture by Shelby, of five fortified Stations of the enemy on the Little Rock, and Duv all's Bluff road, within six miles of DuvalFs Bluff; the capture of 577 prisoners, including one Colonel, and eleven line officers; ten miles of the railroad completely destroyed—the ties burned, and the iron bent; Telegraph destroy-...

LA.RKSVIL SATURDAY OCT. 15A 1804. /HARLES DEMORSE, Proprietor VL. 20 No 52. McC'LELLAX'S NOMINATION. From the Richmond Sentinel Sept. 8*h. I Grant is showing some ies'les^r e?s, inii?ative i of a renewal of the attempts which ha.*e hi ought him so litt'e profit in the past. The Petersburg Expres supposes his object is to extend his left, and make a lodgement on the railroad connecting Petersburg with Lynch burg, t he Soutliside railroad as it is called. Such an extension of his line would greatly increase his hazards by exposing his con- nections with his base at City Point. But it is rea- jsonable to anticipate some early movement on j Grant's part. His lodgement on the Petersburg, and Weldon Railroad is seen to be of such magni- tude, and consequence that no glory attaches to it. That railroad was already so near his lines that our use of it was so precarious, and liable to be sus- pended at any time by a cavalry dash. It was indeed a question whether it was worth t e while for pr...
