From Tennessee — late Northern news.

--All quiet in front. The Nashville Union, of the 6th, states that a rebel force of 20,000 was attacking Franklin yesterday; that there was fighting all day, but the results are unknown.

The Cincinnati Commercial, of the 4th, has a special dispatch from Vicksburg, dated May 30th which says: ‘"Spades are trumps again. We are erecting earthworks to protect our men, and mining to blow the face out of two prominent forts, otherwise unapproachable.--The idea of carrying the place by storm is abandoned. A safer and surer plan than storming Pemberton into submission is favored everywhere."’

Andy Johnson has been ovate at Nashville.

Burnside is constructing a railroad as a military necessity from Nicholasville to Danville, Ky.

Reliable information has been received of the suppression of two papers at Nashville.
