A Train from Chattanooga - Capture of a Rebel Brigadier-General - Evacuation of Shelbyville - Hood's Position Unchanged.
A train arrived here last night from Chattanooga with a few wounded men and several rebel prisoners, among the latter Brig.-Gen. Young, of Cheatham's command. There are no breaks on the Chattanooga Railroad, though the rebel cavalry are prowling near the line. A force of five hundred crossed the track near Laverge last night, fifteen miles south of Nashville.
The garrisons at Shelbyville, were attacked by a body of rebel cavalry, on Monday, but after some severe skirmishing the rebels retired.
Skirmishing at the front is of daily occurrence. There is no change in Hood's position. In every skirmish so far, the Federals appear to have had the advantage. Our forces have evacuated Shelbyville, and it is now in the hands of the rebels.
Opinions are rife as to Hood's movements. Ample preparations have been made and are making to defend Nashville, should he attempt its capture.
