They now hold undisputed possession of Paris, Georgetown, Cynthiana, (where they burned a warehouse,) and Williamstown, the latter place on the Lexington Pike, within thirty miles of Cincinnati. A force of cavalry, 700 strong, entered Paris on Wednesday without resistance. The rebels occupy the rathole near Lexington. They are also reported to be between Crab Orchard and Stamford. " Lincoln has been verbally informed of his nomination, and replied: "I know no reason to doubt that I shall accept the nomination tendered, and yet, perhaps, I should not declare definitely before reading and considering what is called the platform" The Herald attacks Lincoln with great bitterness, and calls for Grant, McClellan, Sherman, Hancock, Thomas, "or any other man," to oppose him with.
