Tke Saints of Cromwell rise again In sanctimonious hordes, t Hiding beneath the garb of peace i A million ruthless swords. From Nerth, from East aad West they seek The same disastrous goal, With Christ upon the lying lip, And Satan in tbe soul; Mocking, with ancient shibboleth, All wise aad just restraints— "To tbe Saints of Heaven was Empire given, And we alone are Saints !" Men of the South ! Look up—beheld The deep and sullen gloom, Which darkens o'er your snnny land With thunder in its womb ! Are ye so blind ye cannot see The omens in the sky ? Are ye so deaf ye cannot hear The tramp of foemen nigh ? Are ye so dull ye will endure The whips and seems of mdh, Who kide the heart ef Titos Oates Beneath the words of Perm?

ikptmr. ! BY COALE At BARR, Friday, Oct. 16, 1863. _-_-Tf T r~- -. . 1 ■ Affairs In Tennessee. | Notwithstanding the misgivings expressed by j many, and the desponding murmurs of others, we can see nothing discouraging in the situation ) at Chattanooga. Rosecrans, nltbo' shielded by impregnable fortifications, is like a fox ia a ] trap, and cannot move except at the will of Gen. Bragg. The latter occupies a position that holds Chattanooga and its outgoings, and he knows very well that Rosecrans cannot get away without ruin to his army. It was rumored that, on Tuesday of last week, Bragg had thrown a few shells into Chattanooga, but we have had no confirmation of the report, nor have we heard any thing farther upon the subject. Lookout Mountain, where our main batteries are planted, is said to be 1800 feet above the level of Chattanooga, and but a fractioa over two miles from it by an air !iae It commands, therefore, the town, as well as the railroads and the river.
