From Nashville.

--The Winchester (Tenn.) Bulletin, of the 29th, says:

Rosecrans is said to be advancing a little and fortifying. As he goes he fortifies. Aping McClellan on the Peninsula, and destined, we pray, to a far worse discomfiture than the Napoleon met with.

Daily we meet with citizens sent away from their homes by Rosecrans, the dog. Nashville is converted into a military encampment.--Horses graze in all the yards, and houses are made stables of. The city is full of Lincoln's detectives, who go in every guise, in order to carry on a system of espionage worse than ever disgraced a fundal kingdom.

Negroes are marched to the fortifications under guard and mode to work hard. They are allowed half rations, and consoled with the promise that, by working hard and helping the Yankees, they will be set free when the war is over. The Yankees watch them to prevent their running away.

There do not seem to be any indications of a battle soon. Rosecran's force is estimated to be 70,000 total.
