--What he is Doing, &c.
--A Bowling Green
correspondent of the Union and American,
writing under date of January 25th, says:
The reported occupancy of Paris
by the enemy is incorrect.
The Federals are, however, at Murray Calloway county, Ky., only twenty miles distant, but as yet have made no demonstration on Paris
The country between Murray
is represented as being a succession of marshes and swamps, impassable, at this season for heavily laden transports or artillery.
What object the Yankees
have in the occupancy of Murray
, whether intended as a rendezvous for the purpose of collecting troops to destroy Tennessee river
bridges and the Memphis and Ohio Railroad, or what not, cannot be devised.
Any movement in the direction of the Tennessee
line will certainly be thwarted.
bridge, although not entirely destroyed, has been seriously damaged, so much so that trains do not pass over it; a few days, however, will suffice for its repair.
There are no evidences of a forward movement from above, and, in consequence, all is quiet here.
