Position of Kentucky.

Louisville, April 19
--A Union meeting was held here last night, at which Mr. Guthrie and other prominent men made speeches. Resolutions were adopted that the Confederate States having commenced the war, Kentucky assumes the right to choose her position, or that she will acknowledge loyalty till the Government becomes the aggressor.--She opposes the call of the President for volunteers for the purposes of coercion, or the raising of troops for the Confederacy; asserts that secession is no remedy for the pending evils, and that Kentucky will not take part with either side, at the same time declaring her soil sacred against the hostile foot of either.

The Governor is endeavoring to induce the banks to take a loan of $500,000 for the defence of the State.
