True we have rumours but i think it probable that they Are nothing Mure than a Romaih or the old rumours we have had in circulation hero for several Day spot. One gentleman Oros cd the Mississippi on the bib and says that he was informed on that Day by an officer that Burnside had certainly a surrendered to Longstreet. I will say nil much that there is no proof Here that Longstreet Bat raised the siege of Knoxville. We Hava Only verbal Ata yemenis to that Welfoot and the were probably taken from Yankee reports. A . 20ih. 1863. Dealt mews something must be out of joint with the express i have written Dally and regularly Nan dad in my the paper office to be forwarded and i Hare no doubt they were forwarded and suit any failures have Oce ured the fault lie elsewhere. We had a stage yesterday afternoon ?. But no Pupera. One Man came throw sri who was wounded in the late fight on Lookout Mountain or rather be was wounded on the ssh at the time of the several repulses of the enemy by Ola Boras division. Ii had not seen any papers later than the 5th or tilth. And bad no information later than we have i bad Here for the last two or three Days. We Bare yet no certain information As to the situation about Knoxville. The Yankees assert that loud St to raised the altar Sod Rolett us in lbs direction of Virginia but we Hare no confirmation of a this report from out own to urges of information. I am incl led to the opinion that the movement of a portion of Lin Streel Force a considerable Dos Tahoe beyond Knoxville to Cross the River gave Rise to the report of Hie Retreat. Longstreet Bavin hansom and Jones must by at the he Ted of an army near 40.w1o Strong besides cavalry1- Forte certainly Large enough to meet any probable emergency. The Only probable difficulty is getting supplies a nil these we understand from the correspondent of the Mobile news he had in a Budd Ance or could get readily by Railroad from Virginia and Herth Carolina. It is not Likely then under All the circumstances that Longstreet retreated with out first making a vigorous Effort to capture the town. Oar army under Hardee is now at Ringgold and the by Nemy e1oroesaremoitly at Rohlck Maug.
