everse in that quarter:
Advance of the Federals--Paris and Danville in danger.
From the Memphis Avalanche, of the 20th inst., we take the following:
It appears to be generally believed, from all the indications, that the long-threatened advance of the Federals is now in progress.
A gentleman who reached this city, in the late train last night, states that the Federals, to the number of about 20,000, were advancing upon Paris and Danville, Tenn., and had already passed Farmington, Ky., on their way to the points designated.
Farmington is in the vicinity of Paducah.
When our informant passed Danville and Paris great excitement prevailed, and the Federals were hourly expected.
It is supposed that the 20,000 here spoken of constitute a part of the immense force which lately left Cairo for Tennessee river, the remainder having probably been detailed to look after Forts Henry and Donelson which at last accounts, were still in the quiet possession of our troops,
