Nashville, Oct. 29.
--A gentleman who left Louisville on the 22d inst., and who arrived here on yesterday, states that troops from the North are rapidly reaching Louisville, and that Gen. McCook's forces between Louisville and Nolin number not less than 31,000 Three regiments from Pennsylvania, with eight pieces of artillery, and one regiment from Indiana, and another from Minnesota arrived at Louisville on the 21st and 22d inst. All regiments as they arrive are immediately sent to Gen. McCook's command, which is now at Elizabethtown. Two regiments from Michigan were hourly expected.

The Cincinnati Commercial, of the 22d inst., says that at least one dozen additional Northern regiments will be sent to Kentucky before the close of the month.

Courtney Prentice, the son of the editor of the Louisville Journal, who has been with the Southern troops at Greenville, recently arrived at his father's place, at the mouth of Salt river, whither he had gone on a visit.--He was immediately arrested, taken to Louisville, and placed in jail.
