spent the night with Col. W., who gave them the freedom of his tent, and the luckless Colonel and his companions drowned their sorrows in a basket of Col. Willich's Rhenish wine. I have just had an interview with a member of an extensive mercantile firm in New York, who has interests South and who has traveled extensively in the South, having left Buckner's headquarters at Bowling Green on Monday. He says that Buckner has 10,000 men at Bowling Green, and Gen. Hardee is in command at Cave City. On Friday last Zollicoffer was in Richmond. He has a force of two thousand at Cumberland Gap, but his main force of eight thousand is at Youngsville, a distance of twenty miles from the railroad, ready for transportation to Nashville for service on the Nashville road. My informant says it is not the policy of the rebels to oppose Gen. Rousseau's progress down the Nashville road until his forces shall have crossed Green river. For obvious reasons the rebel pickets and sco
ngaged the Yankees at Rolla, and routed them. No particulars are given. The fight at Woodsonville — fall of Col. Terry--interesting particulars. The Nashville Banner has a full account of the fight in Kentucky, in the region of Green river, already reported by telegraph, from which we subjoin the following additional particulars: At dawn on Tuesday morning, a body of men, consisting in part of Sweet's Artillery and a fragment of Col. Terry's Rangers, was ordered forward from Cave City, near which they were encamped. They proceeded towards Woodsonville, and, after they had passed the deep cut on this side of the depot and Dirt Road Bridge, they found a party of the enemy. It was in the outskirts of Woodsonville. They had learned that the enemy had boasted that they intended cutting off "Terry and his d — d wild cats." This Col. Terry endeavored to defeat by turning a gap in an adjacent fence and unflanking them.--But in this attempt was unsuccessful, as was also an ef
Horse Cave the Federals have withdrawn to Munfordville. The Confederate forces have also fallen back towards Bowing Green, and are now near Bell's Tavern, and are still moving South, destroying the railroad as they fall back. The tunnel near Cave City was blown up on the 27th of December, by order of the military authorities; and the railroad has been torn up for several miles. The Federals are removing the rails from the track north of Cave City, and are obstructing the different roads leaity was blown up on the 27th of December, by order of the military authorities; and the railroad has been torn up for several miles. The Federals are removing the rails from the track north of Cave City, and are obstructing the different roads leading from Munfordville with trees and other impediments. An early engagement is no more probable now than it was three months ago. Tom Crittenden has fallen back to Calhoun, where it is reported he is preparing to go into winter quarters.
hat though, in his mental dotage, he still retains the strength of youth, as crect and unbent as ever, and as bold and as loud-mouthed as of yore. From Kentucky — cannonading near Green river — Blowing up of a Brider. The Nashville Republican and Banner publishes a very interesting letter from Bowling Green, Ky., dated the 30th ult., from which we make the following extract: On the 27th heavy cannonading was for some time kept up by the Federals, who occupy a position beyond Cave City. Sixty or seventy shells were fired from their long-range guns, making the hills thunder with their terrible music, and old Mammoth Cavern rumble with the sublime reverberations. This waste of powder and artillery diversion resulted in nothing more than frightening the skittish rabbit from the bush, and the timid deer from his native glades. Had our soldiers been at hand the enemy's artillery would not have been there. They had better husband their ammunition. On the same day, the shor
tillery Captain and several men who had deserted from Crittenden, arrived at Hopkinsville on Thursday of last week. One of the Federals captured by Lieut. Hines, below Morgantown, confirms our reports that there is great dissatisfaction among the Kentuckian at the abolition documents of the President and Cameron. From a source which seems worthy of credit we learn that the Federals have nearly finished the Green river bridge. It was reported by a gentleman just returned from Cave City that the Federals had begun to erect fortifications on the ground where Col. Terry fell. This is not very probable. Dispersion of Dutch Cavalry. It was rumored in Hopkinsville, a few days ago that six hundred Dutch cavalry were in Crittenden county, on their way to Princeton. Two companies of Col. Forrest's famous cavalry, under the commands of Capts. Overton and May, were promptly dispatched in pursuit of them. They, however, were unable to overhaul the flop-eared thieves.--S

Operations of the Confederates at Cave city, Ky. Louisville, Jan. 14. --The rebels of Hammond's command, encamped up the river, on Sunday night burned the depot and black smith's shop, and took all the goods from the store of Mr. Mustain, at Horse Cave. They also burned the Woodland depot at Cave City, the Cave City hotel and stables. The citizens at all those points were notified and escaped to Munfordsville, as the rebels stated that they intended to return on Monday night and burn every house that could be used by the Union army in its advance as a hospital of quarters. They also burned up all the hay, eats and fodder stacks along the road, and drove off or killed all the cattle, horses and mules to be found. Indian affairs. Washington, Jan. 14.
ucky. The Bowling Green correspondence of the Nashville Banner, writing under its recent date, furnishes the following interesting intelligence of the operations of Gen. Hindman's forces: In my last, mention was made of the burning of Cave City, Horse Cave, Rowletts, etc., by the forces of Gen. Hindman, which have for some time been stationed at Glasgow Junction. Since the date of writing, more full particulars of his transactions have been received. After having effected the destruction of the property at Rowlett's, he returned to Horse Cave, which, after having conveyed to another point the moveable property, was laid is ashes. Coming on down to Cave City, the people were notified of the doom that awaited them. The furniture and household chattels were taken charge of the torch applied, and soon all the buildings were a heap of smouldering ruins. It is reported to-day that Mammoth Cave hotel and Ritter's hotel and buildings, at Woodland, have also been burned; and it
Latest from Fort Donelson.serious Damage to the Yankees. New Orleans, Feb. 14. --A private dispatch from Nashville says a dispatch had been received there, from Cave city, from Gen. Johnston, which states that we had 18 killed and 15 wounded at the battle at Fort Donelson. The enemy's loss in killed was from four to five hundred. Gen. Pillow has whipped the Yankees, and their gunboats are materially damaged. Copy of a private Dispatch. Nashville, Feb. 13. --The fight continued all day at Fort Donelson. We repulsed the enemy at all points of our line. The Federal gunboats retired evidently injured. Our loss was small, and our men are in flue spirits — The fight will probably be resumed to-morrow. [The above is merely confirmatory of dispatches previously published]
ee account of the exploit, which comes to us in the Northern journals under date of Louisville, May 11: One hundred and fifty of Morgan's cavalry at noon to-day captured forty-eight freight and four passenger cars and two locomotives at Cave City, Ky. Morgan supposed the train would contain 248 cavalry prisoners, bound northward. The operator at Cave City, however, gave notice of these facts to Bowling Green, and stopped the upward train. Among the captured Unionists were Majors HelveCave City, however, gave notice of these facts to Bowling Green, and stopped the upward train. Among the captured Unionists were Majors Helvetii and Coffee, both of Welford's cavalry, and one other Union officer and three or four soldiers. The rebels burned all the above cars, except two, and the locomotive, which brought the passengers back to Louisville. Scott's Louisiana Cavalry. We have published several notices of the gallant band under the command of Scott, a partisan leader, who bids fair to equal Morgan in the boldness of his movements. The following account, written by the Corinth correspondent of the Mobile

He reached Cave City on Sunday, the 10th instant, captured the telegraph operator, and very kindly officiated in his stead, to spare the authorities along the line any undue excitement, which the announTennessee, to pay off the Federal army with.

One object of the darinormation of his movements to the telegraph operator at Bell's station, some miles this side of Cave City, by which means the train from Nashville, having on board the prisoners of Morgan's part, was turned back, and thus the gallant Colonel was disappointed in liberating them. From Cave City Col. Morgan returned by way of Burkeville, where he captured seven of Wolford's cavalry who we
