Condition of affairs at Nashville.

--The Murfreesboro' (Tenn.) Banner publishes some information derived from a lady just from Nashville. Gen. Rosecranz, who is in command there, has about 28,000 men under him. The Banner says:

‘ The various Addition divisions are distributed as follows; Gen. Still near Lavergne; Gens. Crittenden and Thomas on the Lebanon road, one division, commander unknown, on the Nolensville Pike; and Gen Rousseau's command scattered between Mumfordsville, Ky., and Nashville.

The completion of the Louisville and Nashville Railroad has been delayed by the falling in of the tunnel near Gallatin. We imagine that it will cave in pretty soon again if John Morgan has his usual run of inch.

The condition of Nashville is represented as deplorable in the extreme. Her loyal citizens are suffering every possible indignity that tyrannous commanders and a brutalized soldiery can heap upon them. The magnificent Capital building has been converted into the basset uses by the troops. They eat and sleep in its beautiful apartments. Its while are disfigured with obscene writings and discolored by the smoke of hundreds of camp fires.--In fact, an old resident of Nashville would hardly recognize the lovely city that he once called home, so shamefully has it been abused by Abolition rule.
