Affairs in Kentucky.

Louisville, May 27.
--The report of the introduction of guns into this State is confirmed.

Garrett Davis and his friends rely on the constitutional guarantee to the citizens of the right to carry and bear arms, as their justification. There are indications that most of the arms will fall into hands that will not use them under any circumstances, to fight in the cause of Lincoln, but will use them to sustain Kentucky in her position of neutrality, and in case that should be impossible, then in defence of the homes and freedom of the South. The arms are said to be in the county jails, subject to the order of Kentucky's legitimate authorities. Their introduction is considered, by the pure conservative State-Rights party, who constitute a vast majority of the people of Kentucky, as a God-send.
