From Kentucky.

a distinguished Tennesseeans opinion — operations of the Confederates.



Mobile, Sept. 24.
--The Mobile Tribune publishes a letter from a Tennessean Congressman, dated Murfreesboro', Sept. 20th, stating that no matter what the Legislature or the prominent politicians of Kentucky may say and do, we have reliable information that a large majority of the bone and sinew and fighting material of the State are heart and soul with the South.

A column of Tennessee troops have possession of the Louisville and Nashville railroad, within 40 miles of Louisville. They have also taken possession of all rolling stock, including locomotives. The railroad bridge across Salt river, near Elizabeth town, has been burned. These troops are posted at Muldraugh's Hill, where Kentuckians are rallying to unite with them in large numbers.
