I ambushed the ferries and patrolled the river last night at the points indicated by General Grierson, but no attempt at crossing was made. My party ascertained that they were farther up toward La Fayette. I have ordered the forces in that vicinity ambushed to-night.

STEVENS0N, ALA., September 3, 1863-12 p.m.

(Received 10.10 a. m., 4th.)

Major General H. W. HALLECK,

General-in-Chief:

The bridge was repaired to-day at noon. Trains* have been passing over since that time. Most of the troops are now over. No report from General McCook, who probably reached Valley Head with his Second# Division to-day, and possibly has seized Winston's Gap. None from the cavalry at Rawlingsville. Have you any news from Burnside? any reason to think forces will be sent from Virginia to Easte Tennessee? Any that Joe Johnston has sent any forces up this way? Thomas will be at Trenton, McCook at Valley Head, and Crittenden between Whiteside's and Trenton, communicating with Thomas to-morrow night. We shall seize the gaps in Lookout Mountains at Frick's and Winston's, while we threaten Chattanooga by the river road.

W. S. ROSECRANS,

Major-General, Commanding.
