The Green river blunder — reported movement of Rosencranz into Kentucky--a Louisville Canard. Nashville, Oct. 15. --The Louisville Courier, of to day, confirms the destruction of two spans of the railroad bridge over Green river, by a misapprehension of the orders to the officer in charge. Any forward movement of our forces, which may have been contemplated, has thus been delayed by this great blunder. Lincoln forces are at Smithland, and the report is that four hundred Lincolnites have destroyed water-craft of every kind on the Cumberland river, as far up as Ross' Ferry, a distance of 27 miles.

More Yankee prisoners. The Memphis Appeal, of the 24th inst., says: On Monday night of last week a successful little movement occurred on the Cumberland river near Paducah, which goes to show that our friends in that region are alert and active. It seems that 28 mounted Federals left Smithland on a scouting expedition, and during the evening they happened upon a "corn-shucking." Thinking to have a good time, they picketed their horses, stacked arms and "pitched in." One of our friends quietly slipped away, and gave the alarm to Capt. Wilcox, who with 14 of his men proceeded to the scene of merry-making, quietly took possession of the Hessians' horses and arms, and then captured the whole party except the captain. The latter endeavored to escape, when he was shot. The prisoners

half mile short of its mark. General Smith obtained an excellent view of the rebel 'for', camp and garrison, and immediately returned with his brigade to Paducah, having met with the fullest success in the reconnoisance. The occupation of Smithland. General Grant ordered the occupation of Smithland, the location of which we have already stated, as that point occupies a central position, and is of considerable straisgical value, as a force stationed there would be at all times ready toSmithland, the location of which we have already stated, as that point occupies a central position, and is of considerable straisgical value, as a force stationed there would be at all times ready to co-operate with any movement, either on the Tennessee or Cumberland river, as circumstances might require. Thus it will be seen, from the brief resume of the movements of the several brigades of Gen. Grants first expedition towards Columbus, it was not, as some supposed, a failure, but, on the contrary, was a decided success in the objects for which it left Cairo. The second expedition, the result of which we now record, was based upon the information derived from the first, and its g
son, on the Cumberland river, at Dover, some ten miles across the hills at this point from the Tennessee; and, next, that those railroads will be occupied which connect the rebels on the Mississippi with the rebels in Virginia; and that then, as all that section of Kentucky lying between the Cumberland and the Mississippi is attached to the department of General Halleck, there will be, under his direction, a combined movement of all his disposable forces from Fort Henry, Mayfield, Paducah, Smithland, and Cairo, including Commodore Porter's gun-boats, upon Columbus, in front, flank and rear, and that it will not be long before we shall have the pleasure of announcing a crushing defeat of the rebels in that quarter.

The enemy had the advantage of throwing large reinforcements to the point of combat by way of the Cumberland river from Smithland, Paducah, and Calro, and therefore has steadily outnumbered our forces. The struggle has been the most prolonged and hotly contested of the war. Our brave soldiers have fought with a constancy and courage never excelled.
