iirgttiinr.. BY COALE & BARE, '«__ c . * ■ Friday* Oct. 30, 1863. "i —, —"• • East Tennessee. Notwithstanding the daily rumors of the ad vance of the Yankees from toward Zollicoffer and Blountville, there is not, as far as we can learn, a single blue-belly this side ef either place. There are noae, we believe, in the Hol ston Valley this side of Rogersville, and the nearest point at which they may be found on the railroad, is Carter Depot, some 20 miles be low Bristol. Since their late raid to this vicini ty and their return to the Wataiiga, they have occasionally sent out scouting parties as far up as Zollicoffer, but Col. Witcher handled them so roughlyat the latter point last week, they have •not ad 7anced that far since. lt may be said at present, that Burnside's forces, under himself, Shackelford and Hartsaff, occupy East Tennes see from the Wjitauga to Loudon, a distance of about 140 miles. East of the Watauga our forces hold them in check and will very soon hurry them tow...

Y.ink-e History of the Attempt to blow up the Ironsides. . . Morris Island correspondent ofthe New . ;-k ! ribune gives that paper a graphic but J •■■ '-ct account of the attempt to blow up to ironsides. He says: At half past 9 o'clock of the night in ques tion, the quartermaster on watch on board the Ironsides reported to the officer of the deck a suspicious craft, with smoke stack, and setting very low in the water, making direct ly toward the vessel. The night, although clear and the sky studded with stars, was nevertheless unusually dark, and but little could be distinguished ofthe stranger except the smoke pipe and her low hull, the latter extremely indistinct; she appeared to be ■teaming at a speed of seven' knots an hour. How she could have passed our picket boat was a question to bo considered, for it was just possible she might belong to us, and to •fire upon her without first determining her •character and intention might result in more serious damage than if she were an e...

Why quails the State whose soldier-son, Enthroned beside George Washington, The Southern soul inspires? See Mississippi! see once more— While flows her blood from ev'ry pore— Virginia never tires!

Not conquered she 1 For, offspring true of chivalry, Virginia never tires! Should Mississippi utter whines ! Virginia but contracts her lines Rouud Freedom's sacred fires.

|.Im.gkn tfegimrra. BY CO__.!-__. & BARB. Friday, _Xov. O, IS€53. The "Situation." Our Atlanta exchanges and other papers from that direction tell us, that Thomas has crossed a large force at Bridgeport, 25 miles below Chattanooga, and may be attempting to come up in Bragg's rear, to force him from Lookout. The Federal army at Chattanooga is now principally supplied by pack mules, in consequent c of the danger of wagon trans portation through the open country and along the river, and hence it is an important matter to get Bragg from Lookout. The great pro bability is, if Thomas cannot be shelled out of Chattanooga, that he will winter his army there, and if so, it is more than probable Bragg will fall back, perhaps across the Georgia line. As tbe armies now stand, there is but little probability of a fight. We are not certain, therefore, that it would not be to our advantage for our army to fall back, and thus bring on a fight. Hoarding'- One of the developments of the present t...

POETRY. From the Confederate Baptist. The Baby Decked with Flowers. BY_RS. M. W. STIIATTOSI. The baby sleeps, and calmly now I bend me o'er her bed, And kiss the lip—the cheek—the brow Whence only life has fled. For friendship robbed thee, cruel death, Of all thy dismal powers, No shroud enfolds my Evelyn, They decked my babe with flowers. And to that little waxen face A soothing charm was given. Of earth there lingered not _t_at-» She seemed a thing of Heaven. I scarce could make my heart believe That treasure e'er was ours; I wept, but dared not wildly grieve Beside the bed of flowers. She was the little houshhold pet, -Tor none could pass her by, She'd smile in every face she met, Oh! so enchantingly, And she would wave her dimpled hands And show her mimic powers, No wonder that all worshipped so The baby decked with flowers, That manly heads were sadly bewed, And manly eyes grew dim, For tho' no words were breathed aloud, , Still mem'ry worked within. And if that little stainles...

Indeed, the news from every oth er direction is anything but cheering. We don't like the signs at Chattanooga at all, arid would not be surprised at any moment to hear that Bragg had been forced to fall back into North ern Georgia. It may all be for the best for him -to do so, as some who- ought to know have inti mated, but we must confess we always feel a little unpleasant when we hear the word in con nection with any part of our army. The disaster on the Rappahannock, is another dark cloud on ovr path. Our loss, though not ▼cry great—perhaps not half the loss of the en emy—is more than we like to hear of at one tim«, and more than we expected to hiar of in that direction, with the glorieus prestige Our men had before them.

Tbe VlrgSwfa State Guard and ■ tbe Yankee C*ea. Tbouias. The community will be surprised, if not gratified, to learn that the height of ambition of General George B. Thomas, the "Bold" successor to Rosecrans tbe "Dog," at the inci pient verge of the war, was a secondary posi tion in the Virginia State Quard of Richmond. So says one of the correspondents/with Gen. Bragg's army, writing from the front of Chat tanooga. t He was in Texas when the State seceded, and expressed himself loudly as a strong Southern man of the Calhoun school. He swore by "G—d he would resign." and did tender his resignation to General Twiggs, who did not accept it, but advised him to come on to Richmond, and Bend in his resignation to Washington from this point. Thomas adopt ed this suggestion, especially as it enabled him td travel free of expense that far—a great desideratum with a Yankee. Thomas the "Bold," afterwards the "hero of the Chickamauga/' came to Richmond on fur lough, aud soon after made a forma...

COALE At BABB. «Q, 18Q3- Doings In Lee County. We stated last week that there was a large supply of provisions'in Lee county, which might be saved from Yankee rapacity, by a force of 2 or 300 soldiers. On Thursday of last week, a train oi 40 Wagons, each with from 4 to 6 horses or mules, and driven by negroes, started out from Cumberland Gap on a foraging expedition through Lee. ,Capt. Herd, hearing of the train, with a few soldiers assisted by citizens, only about 40 in all, attacked the train at Chadwell's, 14 miles this side of the Gap, and captured it. Unfortunately, a large oavalry force from the Gap, re-captured the trains before Capt. Herd could get them away. Had there been a Confe derate regiment, or even battalion, within sup porting distance, the whole train could have been saved, as well as a very large amount of grain, &c.
