than in the bankruptcy of 1837 and 1840. It is

forty-two miles northeast of Knoxville. At the
time of the first uprising of the Union men in
that region, about a month ago, they burned
the railroad bridge at Strawberry Plains, which
is nearly mid-way between Morristown and
Knoxville. They also burned a bridge over
Lick Creeck, in Greene county, which is north
east of Morristown. In this space the Union
men have been able to rally their forces, the
rebels being cut off from reinforcements both
in the direction of Knoxville and that of South
western Virginia. The Union men have been
"improving the time." Lately the rebel pa
pers of Tennessee have been wondering where
Brownlow was. Doubtless, he was somewhere
near Morristown, and he suddenly let them
know exactly where he was last Sunday, by
attacking them mith a force which their terror
exaggerates to three thousand, and completely
routing them. Probably ho had not more than
half that number.
NEW Yomt, Dec. 6
This brilliant success, in a quarter where it
was not expected, is most encouraging. It leads
to the belief that the Union men of East Ten
nessee can hold their own until General Buell's
great army is ready to march into the State.—
But there should be an energetic effort to hasten
reinforcements to Parson Brownlow. The rebels
are gathering a strong force at Knoxville, with
Major Gen. Crittenden at their head. If Brown
low had five thousand troops sent to him, he
could effectively oppose any force Crittenden is
likely to bring against him. Let him have the
men, and let him also have a Brigadier General's
commission. He has fairly won it, and is much
more deserving of it than some of the other
civilians that have been thus honored. With
Brigadier General Brownlow on our side in East
Tennessee, and Major General Polk on the other
side in the west, the church militant will be
In more than three quarters of the regiments
native Americans are in the majority. The
Gerinans are in the majority in only sin. The
Irish in only five out of a hundred. Nearly
two-thirds of the army are Americans. Nine

Five men in a huVred are without blankets,
most probably havMg worn theirs out. A
quarter of the blankets are of poor quality. The
men are generally well provided ; if not, it is
the consequence of ther own carelessness, or
the gross negligence of officers. The men are
almost universally satisfied with ther rations,
both in quality and quantity.
Captains now uniformly draw for rations, and
generally in proper form. Thecooking is great
iy improved. About forty per cent. of the regi
ments here form company hinds. Three months
ago only cm regiment of the volunteers did.
This indicates the formation of regular camp
habits. In eight out of twenty regiments the
sutlers charge fixed prices. They are gen
erally exorbitant. The army regulations on
the subject are uniformly disregarded. There
is little drunkenness except on pay-day, and
leave of absence there is less than in other ar
mies. There 13 too much gambling after pay
day. In seven-eights of the regiments there
are competent surgeons. The health of the vol
unteers is not as good as that of the regulars.
The average number of sick of the whole army
is 77 in 1000. The average deaths monthly Is
3 in 1000.
COTTON COMING .-A private letter by the la
test arrival from Fort Royal, states incidently,
that one of the quartermasters has, on his ova n
responsibility, set about forty gins at work,
cleaning the cotton from seed, and preparing it
for mailret. The negroes as an inducement to
work, are to receive three cents per pound for
all marketable cotton, and they have gone into
