Withdrawal of the Yankees to Munfordville — movements of the Confederates--the probabilities of an engagement--Gen. Tom Crittenden.



Nashville, Dec. 31
--(Via Mobile, Jan. 2.)--The Bowling Green correspondent of the Union and American states that after advancing to Horse Cave the Federals have withdrawn to Munfordville. The Confederate forces have also fallen back towards Bowing Green, and are now near Bell's Tavern, and are still moving South, destroying the railroad as they fall back. The tunnel near Cave City was blown up on the 27th of December, by order of the military authorities; and the railroad has been torn up for several miles. The Federals are removing the rails from the track north of Cave City, and are obstructing the different roads leading from Munfordville with trees and other impediments.

An early engagement is no more probable now than it was three months ago.

Tom Crittenden has fallen back to Calhoun, where it is reported he is preparing to go into winter quarters.
