There are said to be several Union traitors in this place, and last night they showed their fiendish exultation at the departure of our troops by setting fire to a large portion of the village occupied by Secessionists Several disparage were consumed. We are this moment leaving Bowling Green for Nashville. Gen. Beauregard and Gen. Johnston, with their staffs, are on board. As we move slowly away, the ladies crowd the balcony of a distant residence, and beneath the Stars and Bare of a Confederate flag, floating triumphantly over them, are waving their kerchiefs in token of honor to the gallant commanders who are just changing their field of active operations what heroism and patriotism are here displayed by these, the most defenceless and exposed!

Johnston had? Besides the 14, 000 at Fort Donelson, he had not more than 10,000 men on his retreat from Bowling Green to Nashville.--He could not be ubiquitous, and could not, with so small a force. protect Nashville against a column of 80,000 troops. Did he not use every exertion to rouse up Tennessee, and urge the people to make such preparations as would render Nashville impregnable? The writer knows that he did as far back as October last. The people of that State are a gallan
