Capture of Lebanon, Ky., by MorganMorgan making for Frankfort.

Chattanooga, July 20.
--The Louisville Journal of the 14th instant, contains full particulars of the capture of Lebanon, Ky., by Morgan's forces, on the 13th. Lieutenant-Colonel A. G. Johnson, and two companies of the 28th Kentucky regiment, were taken prisoners by our forces. Several Federals were killed. The railroad depot, with a portion of the town, were burnt, and the banks sacked. After the capture of Lebanon, Morgan's forces proceeded to Danville and Bardstown.

He divided his men on the Springfield railroad and arrived within nine miles of Frankfort, Sunday night. He proceeded thence to Lexington.--It is reported, on considered good authority, that a large rebel force advanced within seven miles of Shelbyville, on the route to Louisville. Gen. Boyle is making every preparation for the defence of that city, which is in a frenzy of excitement in anticipation of an attack.

Chattanooga,July 21.--The enemy is concentrating a large force at Tullahoma, forty miles the other side of Stevenson. Buell's army is in a tight place.
