Federal reinforcements in Kentucky. The enemy are said to be sending heavy reinforcements to Kentucky. The Nashville Patriot says that twenty-five thousand of McClellan's forces have been ordered thither. The Cincinnati Enquirer asserts that there are now not less than fifty thousand Union troops in Kentucky, and that there will soon be 60,000. It urges a speedy movement in the direction of Cumberland Gap, the dispersion of the Confederate camp there, and the taking possession of the East Tennessee and Virginia Railroads. The Confederate leaders, it is to be presumed, will take the most prompt and energetic measures to prevent this dangerous "fire in the rear."
