Gen.Sumter) Anderson's Reasons for Resigning.

--A gentleman who reached Bowling Green, Ky., a few days ago, relates the following conversation which occurred in Louisville between Gen. Anderson and himself:

‘"General, I understand that you have resigned."’ ‘"Yes, sir,"’ replied the General, ‘"my health is very bad, and it may be better to die in retirement the Anderson of Sumter,"’ than to sustain a disastrous battle in my present position for the want of necessary supplies — soldiers and arms — from the Government I serve. " This is reliable.
