The Nashville American, of Friday last, received last evening, contains a glowing statement of the occupation of Muldrough's Hill, thirty-three miles from Louisville, by the Confederate forces under Gen. Buckner, with full particulars; but unfortunately the account winds up as follows:

Since writing the above, we have heard seemingly authentic rumors that telegraphic dispatches have been received in town, announcing that the enemy have occupied Muldrough's Hill, in advance of General Buckner. We are inclined to credit this account. If so, he is destined to be speedily dislodged by the force of Gen. Buckner.

The Memphis Appeal, of the same date says:

‘ Late intelligence from Kentucky leaves it doubtful as to who possesses Muldroughts Hill though we think it very probable that the Confederates have it, for the reasons stated on yesterday.

It is certain, however, that our troops have possession of Crawfordville, on Green river, and also of the railroad bridge on Bacon Creek, which is about twenty miles from Elizabethtown.

With the advantages which we now have, we can certainly foil the enemy's movements in that vicinity, if our men will only exhibit a proper degree of energy, either in advancing themselves or by taking steps to hinder the progress of the foe, as can be easily done by the destruction of bridges and obstructing roads.
