Gallant Feat at Murfreesboro'--Defection to the Feed all Cause in Kentucky.

Mobile, Jan. 23
--The Advertiser and Register have received the following dispatch:

McMinnville, Jan. 21.--A detachment of 100 of Gen. Morgan's men, under Col. Hutchinson, made a dash into Murfreesboro' yesterday, in sight of the enemy's cavalry camps, and captured 200 prisoners and 20 wagons.

Reliable information from Kentucky states that on the 13th instant Gen. Woolford made a speech to his men, in the presence of 3,000 citizens of Lebanon, telling them to go home for twenty days ! If within that time Lincoln did not modify his emancipation proclamation, he would not call upon them to fight against the South, but he would himself take the field in behalf of the South against the North. [Signed.]

G. A. Ellsworth,
(Morgan's Operator.)
