Governor Yates for the Seat of War.

Immediately upon the receipt of the intelligence of the battle of Pittsburg, Tennessee, Governor Yates set to work to render all the assistance in his power towards relieving the horrors of that terrible and hardly contested conflict, and he has himself, together with the other State officers, departed to the scene of the fight. They are accompanied by surgeons, nurses, and hospital supplies for the wounded. A special train, with surgeons, nurses and hospital stores, has also left Chicago, under the direction of the Sanitary Commission. Governor Yates will join Gen. Halleck at Cairo, and proceed with him at once up the Tennessee river.
