n of facts which it is surprising that they should obtain. The painful truth is, that the public mind is resolved not to see this great rebellion in its true light, and will hear of nothing but what chimes with its humor. Brigadier General R. W. Johnson has arrived since my last, and been placed in command of a brigade. There are two other brigades here, commanded by Generals Wood and Rousseau. Each brigade consists of four regiments. A complete brigade of Pennsylvania troops is expected to- morrow or next day. Some Michigan regiments, and one or two more Indiana and Illinois regiments are also expected.

Nashville, Nov. 4. --We have quite a batch of rumors here to-day. An officer from Camp Cheatham, who reached here on yesterday, reports that the Federal forces at Henderson, Kentucky, had moved to Madisonville, where they were joined by others, swelling the Federal column to ten thousand men, with the intention of marching on Hopkinsville. General Johnston has withdrawn his forces from Greene, which created considerable excitement at Clarkesville, Tennessee. In consequence of these reports, the banks there sent all their specie to Nashville.
