The Sovereignty Convention of Kentucky. --We have already published that the Convention of Kentucky, in session at Russellville, had appointed a committee to prepare a form of provisional government for that State, and that that committee had reported a preamble and constitution, which, without a dissenting voice, was adopted. The preamble states at length the grievances suffered by the citizens of Kentucky, the usurpations of power by both the Federal and State authorities, and concludes by a declaration of a severance of the State from the United States in the following language: "We do, therefore, declare that the people are hereby absolved from all allegiance to said Government, and that they have the right to establish any Government which to them may seem best adapted to the preservation of their rights and liberties." The constitution adopted for the temporary government of the State is embraced in sixteen sections, the last five of which we subjoin: Sec. 12. The fo

Kentucky. The Sovereignty Convention of Kentucky, during its recent session at Russellville, adopted a declaration of independence and ordinance of separation from the United States. The following is a copy of the. Declaration of independence and Ordinance of separation. Whereas, The Federal Constitution, which created the Government of the United States, was declared by the framers there of to be the supreme law of the land, and was intended to limit, and did expressly limit, the powers of said Government to certain general specified purposes, and did expressly reserve to the States and people all other powers whatever, and the President and Congress have treated this supreme law of the Union with contempt, and usurped to themselves the power to interfere with the rights and liberties of the States and the people, against the express provisions of the Constitution, and have thus substituted for the highest forms of rational liberty and Constitutional Government a centra

The sentiment of Kentucky. --We have read with much pleasure an address of Hon. E. M. Brown, of Kentucky, to the people of Nicholas county and the Ashland Congressional District. Mr. Brown represented the county of Nicholas in the convention held at Russellville on the 18th November, for the purpose of establishing a Provisional Government, and is one of the ten Legislative Councilmen (there being one for each Congressional District) to the Governor. He may therefore be presumed to speak intelligently of the public sentiment of Kentucky upon the present questions of the day. He says he has no doubt but the Provisional Government will be the one universally recognized by the whole State of Kentucky, in less than twelve months, and he believes that now, if a vote could be taken in all parts of the State, free from the coercion of Lincoln's bayonets, the vote would be unanimous to join the Confederate States. Mr. Brown thus addresses himself to the Union men in certain distric

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.

From Kentucky. Floyd and Buckner — the Unionists in Bowling Green--plenty of everything — Congressional election — Reviews, &c. [special correspondence of the Dispatch.] Russellville, Ky., Jan. 27, 1862. Russellville, situated in "a low, green valley," twenty-eight miles from Bowling Green, and two hundred and thirty miles from Memphis, by railway, is a town containing three thousand inhabitants, and noted as the place where the Provisional Government was put on its legs.
As in other localities where troops have been massed, there is a perfect squeeze here, all the available space in the hotels and private houses being fully appropriated.
But notwithstanding the absence of comfort, one feels more at home in Russellville than in Bowling Green.
In the latter, the people are cool in their treatment of Southern soldiers, or at best, only tolerably polite and attentive.
The truth is, that before Gen. Johnston's army went to Bowling Green the bulk of the inhabita<
