From Kentucky, &c.

Nashville, Dec, 11.
--The Louisville papers of the 1st inst. report the arrival there on that day and the day previous of the 7th regiment of Pennsylvania cavalry, the 6th, 9th, and 10th regiments of Ohio, and 15th and 17th Indiana regiments.

The Louisville and Nashville Railroad advertised on the 1st inst., to receive no freights until further notice. This announcement was doubtless caused by the occupancy of the railroad in the transportation of Yankee troops towards Bowling Green.

Resolutions have been introduced into the Kentucky Legislature denouncing the Provisional Government movement, and declaring it treason, and also instructing Gov. Magoffin to issue his proclamation warning the people against assisting the Confederates, and requiring those already engaged in carrying on offensive operations against the Union to disband and desist from their purposes.

A bill has been introduced in the House providing that no person aiding or assisting in the rebellion against the United States shall ever hold any office of trust or profit in the State of Kentucky.

Mrs. Gen. Buckner left Bowling Green, a few days since, under a flag of truce, with the dead body of her child for burial in Louisville. Gen. McCook refused to recognize the flag, and Mrs. Buckner was compelled to return.

Memphis,Dec. 11.--New Madrid is now fortified and two regiments were sent there on Monday. Speeches were made by Governor Jackson, Gens. Thompson and Gant. All of General Thompson's command has re-enlisted.

There is nothing important from Columbus.

The rumored attack on Cairo has been abandoned.

The ‘"Manassas,"’ or steam battering ram, from New Orleans, reached Columbus on Sunday last.
