ch,] Nashville, Dec., 16, 1861. For the last day or two, rumors of movements in the neighborhood of Green River, has led us to expect a battle between General Hindman's brigade and the forces under General McCook. The enemy is on the right bank of the river five or six thousand strong, while our troops are on the left bank, numbering not over two thousand. They are about five miles apart. Notwithstanding the disparity of numbers no apprehension is felt for Hindman, as he has a good position, is skillful and brave as a lion, and has troops that are equal to anything that is possible. Although the enemy has assumed a threatening attitude, I question whether he will venture to attack Hindman. I suppose, rather, that both commands occupy only a position of watchfulness, or as guards, on the important line between Bowling Green and Lexington, and Louisville. The contest, if there be any fighting of consequence, will be, probably, to the east of that line. The movemen
nforcements have been ordered from Clarksville to sustain General Clark. Passengers from Bowling Green report that 17,000 of the enemy crossed Green river on Friday. The Bowling Green correspondent of the Union and American, under date of the 20th instant, reports that place will be advanced upon from both sides, simultaneously, with a combined Yankee force of 60,000. Since the work and repairs on the railroad bridge have been commenced, several pontoon bridges have been thrown across the river, upon which wagons and cannon can easily be crossed. Gen. Hindman is ten miles South of Green river, and has been strongly reinforced. It is surmised that there will be no general engagement beyond Bowling Green, for at that point a stand will be made, and a decisive battle fought. Intelligence from Eastern Kentucky announces that the people are rising in overwhelming numbers and joining the standard of Gen. Humphrey Marshall, as he approach as the Blue Grass region.
