Newspaper sentiment at the West.

Louisville, Ky., July 11.
--The telegraphic correspondent of the Cincinnati Enquirer, referring to the prohibition by Gen. Scott, of telegraphic references or statements of military movements, says this is a misfortune to that portion of the reading public who desire information about such matters, and particularly unfavorable to the readers of the Enquirer, who received reliable and prompt reports through Cleveland.

The Cincinnati Commercial, of this morning, has the following:

‘ "It is refreshing after reading some of the pitiful, whining, sneaking, snarling paragraphs, with which the editorial columns of the Cincinnati Enquirer are filled, to open the Louisville Democrat or Journal and note the manly earnestness with which the editors of those papers are standing up for the Government."

’ The Louisville Journal, of this morning, has the following:

‘ "The Courier, of this city, calls some of Gen. Roussean's men 'hard looking chaps.' Well, 'hard looking chaps' are often hard fighting chaps. Soft looking fellows generally figure better in ladies' drawing rooms than in warriors' battle-fields. The Louisville Telegraphic Agent of the Southern Confederacy calls Roussean's men 'ragamuffins.' That is venturing pretty far. The slandered soldiers across the river may have in them a spark of something dangerous. A ragamuffin, who insulted one of them last week, very suddenly ceased to be a ragamuffin, for he didn't have a rag left on his back.
