Knoxville, Tenn, Nov. 9.--P. M.
--On the 5th inst. a demonstration was made upon the city of Nashville by Forrest on the north and John Morgun on the south side. Morgan was quite successful, destroying many cars, locomotives, and bridges. We killed and wounded 75 or 100 Abolitionists, while our loss was very slight.

Three Abolition brigades have reinforced Negley in Nashville, and the place is strongly fortified. Morgan Burt the Raiford bridges and water tooks. He is now at Gallatin, Tond. General McCown goes to Arkansas, and Jones joins General Pemberton.
