Joe Johnston is reported to be moving towards Jackson, but not in sufficient force to attack us. Philadelphia, June 5.--A special dispatch from Cincinnati to-day to the Bulletin, but entirely discredited by that paper, says: "A report is current to-day that Gen. Joe Johnston instead of marching on Grant's rear to relieve Pemberton is advancing on Memphis. The report comes in various shapes, and is somewhat credited." Francis M.
