Gentlemen of intelligence just from that country entertain no fear of the perfect feasibility of our holding the mountain; and General Marshall only wishes such small reinforcements of men and arms as will enable him to push through and proceed against Nelson. Paris, Kentucky, is more distant from Piketon than Wytheville, Virginia, and the circuitous route taken by the news of Nelson's victory, is sufficient to disprove the story. These magnificent falsehoods have become a systematic business in Kentucky, intended to suppress the secessionist feeling. When the news of our victory at Springfield reached that State their journals put "rebels" for "Federals," and "Federals" for "rebels," in the accounts of the battle, and spread the counterfeit news all over

Vague rumors are afloat of a fight at Mumfordsville, between General McCook's division and the enemy, but they are not credited. Paris, Ky., Dec. 14.--Abe Spears and Dani, Helber, two most prominent Secessionists of this county, were killed about 5 o'clock this morning.

The country between Murray and Paris is represented as being a succession of marshes and swamps, impassable, at this season for heavily laden transports or artillery. What object the Yankees have in the occupancy of Murray, whether intended as a rendezvous for the purpose of collecting troops to destroy Tennessee river bridges and the Memphis and Ohio Railroad, or what not, cannot be devised. Any movement in the direction of the Tennessee line will certainly be thwarted. Green river bridge, although not entirely destroyed, has been seriously damaged, so much so that trains do not pass over it; a few days, however, will suffi
