n report that a general engagement is regarded as imminent there. Twenty-four Hessian prisoners were brought here to-day from Bowling Green. Among them were John Frain, (Col. Grider's Quartermaster,) eight or ten Dutchmen, and the others were Kentuckians. The Bowling Green correspondent of the Nashville Banner, of the 18th, states that the Federals, in large numbers, are pouring down upon Green river. The railroad bridge has been repaired, and pontoon bridges have been thrown across the river. Five thousand of the enemy are in position on this side of the river. Gens. Johnston and Buckner hastened forward on yesterday a Kentucky brigade; the 2d Mississippi regiment, and several batteries moved forward this morning. A special dispatch to the Union and American, dated at Bowling Green on the 19th instant, says that the Federals sent a flag of truce to bury their dead, 114 of whom were interred. The Lincolnites are reported to have retreated across Green river.
