Affairs in Kentucky.

Nashville, Sept. 28.
--Sumter Anderson, on assuming the command in Kentucky, says he comes to enforce, not make laws, and to protect the property and lives of the people; that Kentucky has vainly striven to keep the peace with her neighbors, and calls upon the people to rally to her standard. He has issued another proclamation in which he says, that understanding that apprehensions are entertained by citizens of the State, who have hitherto been opposed to the policy now adopted in the State, he gives notice that no Kentuckian will be arrested who remains at home attending to his business, and does not take part, by action or speech, against the authority of the General or the State Government, hold correspondence with, or give aid to, its enemies.

The Louisville Journal of the 25th reports the arrest of eight prisoners by Gen. Sherman, charged with treason.

Hon. J. C. Breckinridge, it is reported, passed Sterling on the 20th, at 4 o'clock A. M., going towards the Virginia line.
