Attempt to kill Gen. Forrest.

--Several days since, Lieut. Gould, of Capt. Morton's Battery, attacked Gen. Forrest, at Hotheads Church, between Columbia and Franklin, Tenn., snapping a revolver at him, the cap felling to explode. Forrest closed upon him, with a knife, cutting him, where, or whether or not severely, is not stated. Gould then fired his revolver, shooting Forrest in one of his hips, the ball striking the bone. It was afterwards extracted. Gen. Forrest wrote to his wife, in the vicinity of Huntsville; Ala., that he expected to be in his saddle in 10 days.
