es of Craddock and Reed, with two regiments of cavalry, were at Lebanon under Colonel Hoskins. Baird's division, consisting of six regiments of infantry, was at Danville, and Woolford's brigade of cavalry at Greensburg, on Green River, above Munfordsville. Morgan, with his light and compact body of troops, fully relied upon his eaching Elizabethtown, Morgan was approaching Bardstown, and his scouts were already in Fredericksburg. But fearing to be caught between the troops of Baird at Danville and those of Hoskins at Lebanon, he suddenly retraced his steps, passed through Hayesville and encamped at Rolling Fork. On the 31st he crossed the Muldraugh Hills, which lie south of Lebanon, and re-entered the valley of Green River. Baird, at Danville, made no effort to meet him; Woolford, at Greensburg, seemed to have no suspicion of his being so near him at Campbellville. Hoskins alone started in pursuit of him with all his forces. He left Lebanon on the 31st, crossed the Muldraug

ded him, appear before Stanford. The Unionist force which occupies the village promptly falls back upon the garrison of Danville, consisting of a brigade of infantry and a regiment of cavalry under General Carter. The whole of Pegram's force, having once more got into the saddle, reaches the neighborhood of Danville by a forced march on the evening of the 19th, while the Federals are still watching Cluke's movements. Carter, unaware of the strength of his adversary, does not dare to wait for him, and after depositing the supplies gathered in Danville at Lexington, takes up his line of march for Camp Dick Robinson, in order to cross to the other side of the Kentucky River. But on the morning of the 20th, before this movement could have been completed, Pegram's head of column attacks a portion of the Federal forces which are still occupying Danville. They resist long enough in the streets to enable the trains to get away, and afterward join the rest of the brigade at the Dick River

perplexity here now as to Kentucky, growing out of neutrality and the fear of violating it, thinking, when it is done, (as it will be done [by] the Legislature,) the Legislature ought to do it. I am well — hope to adjourn some time next week. Your friend, H. Grider. No. 9.W. T. Ward to John H. Ward. Greensburg, Ky., Aug, 14, Dear Sir: I received your letter this morning. In reply, I am informed that Col. Bramb lett's camp is at Robinson's cross roads, seven miles from Danville, Ky. Bramblett has no cavalry under his command, or at his encampment. Therefore, nothing can be learned about cavalry tactics by going to his encampment. I also learn that there is a cavalry encampment at Bryantsville, in the edge of Garrard county, Ky., under the command, I presume, of T. Woolford, of Casey county. I apprehend that both of these men — Bramblett and Woolford — have raised their regiments without the proper authority for so doing, judging from what Harding informed me sinc<

hem on their arrival, with the avidity of half starved cube. The same story which we have heard recently, with too much of probability in it, and too frequently to doubt, is told by this returned bank clerk from Richmond. He tells the same tale of the half-starved, discouraged and ragged rebels. The last remnant of a company has been sent away from Richmond to reinforce the army in Maryland, and it was his opinion that the Confederate capital could be easily captured. Affairs at Danville, Ky. The Louisville Journal, of October 1st, says: A gentleman arrived in this city yesterday from Danville and brings intelligence as late as Monday evening. General S. B. Backner had arrived at Danville with his command, consisting of about three thousand men, and had occupied General Boyle's residence as his headquarters. The rebels are seizing private property of all descriptions belonging to Union men, and have thus confiscated many horses, large quantities of grain, and provi
nfederates. Great battle is Kentucky. The New York Herald, of the 10th, has dispatches announcing a general engagement between Bragg and Buell at Perryville, Ky., which is preceded by a long heading, in which the word "victory" does not occur once. This is almost equal in that paper to a frank confession of defeat. The battle commenced on Wednesday morning by an attack by the Confederates on McCook's corps at Perryville, about 41 miles due South from Frankfort and situated between Danville and Bardstown.--The following are the dispatches: Cincinnati, Oct. 9, 1862. --Intelligence has been received here to-night of an attack on General McCook's corps at Perryville, Ky., yesterday, by Bragg. who threw his entire force upon him. Our loss was nearly two thousand in killed and wounded. Gen. Jackson was killed and General Terrell badly wounded. The enemy's loss is not ascertained, but is probably heavy. There is a prospect of a general engagement being brought on b
The Danville extension. This most important line of railway, connecting Richmond with Greensboro', N. C., is lagging for want of laborers. Its importance as a military necessity cannot be over-estimated, and if our Southern railroad connection was cut off by the enemy, the want of this route would do incalculable injury to the transportation of supplies. The contractors are using every effort to secure, negro hands, but only have 400, where 2,000 could and would be employed. The location of the road is healthy and safe from any approach of the enemy, and it is strange the farmers in exposed positions of the Confederacy do not send their hands there, if not for the interest of the country at least for their own personal benefit. The contractors are appealing to them for aid, which will be liberally paid for. Let them respond promptly.

From Tennessee — late Northern news. Shelbyville, Tenn., June 8. --All quiet in front. The Nashville Union, of the 6th, states that a rebel force of 20,000 was attacking Franklin yesterday; that there was fighting all day, but the results are unknown. The Cincinnati Commercial, of the 4th, has a special dispatch from Vicksburg, dated May 30th which says: "Spades are trumps again. We are erecting earthworks to protect our men, and mining to blow the face out of two prominent forts, otherwise unapproachable.--The idea of carrying the place by storm is abandoned. A safer and surer plan than storming Pemberton into submission is favored everywhere." Andy Johnson has been ovate at Nashville. Burnside is constructing a railroad as a military necessity from Nicholasville to Danville, Ky. Reliable information has been received of the suppression of two papers at Nashville.
The Yankee prisoners at Danville. --The Danville Register says the smallpox continues to spread among the Yankee prisoners there. The number of cases is now 300. The virus furnished by their own Government having been generally administered the progress of the disease may be checked. The fatality among the prisoners from this and other maladies is very great. Several wagon loads are hauled out to the graveyard everyday from the general hospital, besides those who die of smallpox.
