From Kentucky [Special Correspondence of the Dispatch.] Bowling Green, Jan. 22, 1862. General Floyd has been assigned to the commend of a division of the army, and will leave his present headquarters in a few hours for an important point. His brigade, of which the Fifty-sixth Virginia is now a permanent part, is under marching orders this morning. Whether its destination is Hopkinsville, Russellville, Paris, or Green River, it is not my province to inform the enemy. It is sufficient to state that a movement of much interest is about taking place, and the public will be informed of its results in due time. The line between what is proper and what is improper for publication is so indistinct that a war correspondent ought to think several times before he writes a word. Many are the lies manufactured by sensation writers and telegraphic operatives. I had rather possess a character for truthfulness than obtain an evanescent reputation for figuring in highly colored stories.
