The Daring bravery of Zollicoffer. --The Bowling Green Courier and the Nashville (Tenn.) Gazette, publish tolerably full accounts of the late Fishing Creek battle, but neither furnish any additional facts, except in relation to the death of Gen. Zollicoffer. The Courier is informed that Gen. Zollicoffer mistook a Kentucky or Ohio regiment which had opened fire upon our forces, for one of our regiments firing upon others through mistake, and galloped forward with his staff to order them to desist, not discovering his error till he was in their midst.--He immediately drew his sword and dispatched the Yankee Colonel to whom he was about to give orders, when he was fired upon, and fell pierced with many balls.

Nashville, Jan. 25 --The Fort Henry correspondent of the Union and American says that Federal gun-boats came up near to that post on the 22d inst., and fired four shots from behind Point Island. One of the shot passed through the chimney of the steamer Linn Boyd, which was lying at the fort. One fell in front of her bow, and one 8-incpposite side of the river.--Its force is variously estimated from five to twenty-five thousand. It is thought they are erecting fortifications there. It is very well understood that this is the force that was at Murray. Stragglers from Fishing Creek bring very contradictory reports, but generally concur that the enemy lost more than the Confederates in that engagement. The loss on our side is not stated, but former reports, at from two to three hundred, continue to be sustained. Ge
