GENERALS PALMER AND SMITH.

ON this page we give portraits of Generals PALMER and SMITH, the former connected with the late movement against Dalton, and the latter with General Sherman's expedition. The movement against Dalton was probably no more than a reconnoissance; but there was some very severe fighting, as the

enemy were strongly posted, and our forces were compelled to give up the attack, which would otherwise have been successful. An account of this movement is given in its proper place, as also of General Smith's cavalry expedition, which started from Memphis to co-operate with Sherman, but which encountered the concentrated force of the enemy's cavalry, under Forrest, Lee, and Rhoddy.

BRIDGE ACROSS THE HOLSTON.

WE give below a view on the Holston River, which runs through Knoxville, Tennessee, showing the pontoon bridge and the bridge built by the United States Government, as seen February 5, 1864. On the right is a stone quarry, the rocks being used for filling the inside of the piers, which

are built of timbers. The bridge is now completed. On the left are seen slaughter-houses and the remains of the gas-works destroyed by fire, the chimney still standing. Camps of the troops are seen in different places. The Holston River is the stream which has separated Longstreet from the Federal army at Knoxville, and from the banks of which the rebel General has lately retreated.
