Kentucky boys leaving.

--The Louisville Journal, of Friday, says:

‘ We are informed by a highly respectable citizen that he was at the Nashville depot yesterday morning and saw many of the Citizen's Guards, who belong to the State Guard, go off with their uniforms on, and one of the company told him they were all going to Muldraugh's hill and from there to Camp Boone, where Gen. Buckner, Colonel Hunt, and Maj. Cassedy were waiting for them.--Now, does not this beat all? Young men, who have been trained under the care of the State, going off to aid the ruthless invaders of Kentucky.

’ The same paper has the following:

‘ Our officials were remarkably fortunate yesterday in the recovery of State arms, which had been secreted, with a view to their misapplication by members of the State Guard. Early in the day the three cannon, one a twelve-pounder and the others six-pounder, were taken from their hiding place and delivered over to our loyal friend Capt. Watkins, of the Semple Guards, which company has been, mustered into the United States service. Subsequently seizures of muskets and munitions of war were made by the authorities at the store of John Snyder and the building formerly occupied by L. L. Warren & Co., on Main street, between Third and Fourth. Arms were also found at the establishment of Sachs & Bro., on Main street, below Fourth, at Crutcher & McCready's, on Main street, near the Louisville Hotel, in an out-building on the alley between Brook and Preston and Market and Jefferson streets, and perhaps in other localities. Thus no less than two hundred and fifty stand of arms and accoutrements, a large number of army tents, pick-axes, spades, &c., were secured and removed from the custody of persons who are seeking to involve our State in a bloody and relentless war. Other, and perhaps more important seizures will be made to-day.
