tician is second to none in the world. What the determination of those in command here is, of the disposition to be made of the troops of this division, I cannot knowingly speak, but would not be disappointed if an advance was made upon Muldraugh's Hill, where the Lincolnites are reported as being strongly fortified. Muldraugh's Hill is a continuation of the Cumberland range of mountains, terminating in a bold bluff at the Ohio river, in Hardin county, and now invested at its principalMuldraugh's Hill is a continuation of the Cumberland range of mountains, terminating in a bold bluff at the Ohio river, in Hardin county, and now invested at its principal passes by Federalists. It presents no strategic importance or natural strength, as far as the forward movements of the Confederate forces now congregating here, and which constitute the central division of this army, are concerned. Had the Southrons entered the State in time to have planted batteries at such crossings as would be used in travel to and from Louisville, and also on the plateau commanding that portion of the range through which the great tunnel of the Louisville and Nashvill
e Union. One reason for this seeming unanimity is the fact that all who were Secessionists in the late political campaign, have fled. But of those who remain, I am satisfied that fully one-half are at heart Secessionists, though they are all very loud in their professions of loyalty. A good many recruits are coming in, all things considered; but I have noticed that the recruiting ground, which is to do such wonders, always keeps its distance, advancing as we advance. When we were at Muldraugh's Hill, it was here; now it is in the next county below. Still, I suppose it is all right. Our Union papers insist that it is, and the North believes them. However, there is one trifling fact which is unpleasant to contemplate and rather inconvenient in its results. The greatest pains have been taken to exclude from the camp all except the most tried and undoubted Unionists. No other class can get within the lines, which embrace a considerable extent of country, upon any pretext whatever,

A telegram from Louisville, dated the 24th, gives the following intelligence about General Lyon's progress in Kentucky: General Lyon's force, estimated at from two thousand to three thousand cavalry, with six guns, struck the Louisville and Nashville railroad at Elizabethtown, and destroyed a few unimportant spans over Bacon creek, a small stream, and then turned north, and are now threatening the important trestlework at Muldraugh's Hill. Lagrange's brigade, of McCook's division, is close upon Lyon's rear. Our military authorities are prepared to give Lyon a warm reception. On Saturday, the steamer Morning Star, Captain Ballard, bound from Louisville, put in at Lewisport, and was boarded by fifty guerrillas, under Captain Davidson, who robbed the passengers of three hundred thousand dollars. Shots were fired by the guerrillas at some of the parties in the cabin, injuring no one. They subsequently killed two discharged soldiers on deck, and then comp

A dispatch from Louisville, of the 25th says: An officer of the Sixth Kentucky (Watkins's brigade), reports that six hundred of Lyon's rebel cavalry went from Elizabethtown to Hadenville yesterday, and cannonading was heard at Muldraugh's Hill, from the direction of Elizabethtown, last evening, supposed from a collision between General McCook's and Lyon's forces. Headquarters are advised that the remainder of Lyon's troops, estimated at two thousand five hundred, with but one piek this morning, going towards Hadenville, and was inquiring en route the way to Greensburg. Lagrange's brigade, of McCook's command, was reported closely upon their rear. Lyon was himself at Hedgeville yesterday. His forces did not assail Muldraugh's Hill this morning, according to their previous announced intention. The damage to the railroad was so slight that it will be in running order on Wednesday. On Friday night, Lyon's force was reported to have burned express train No. 4,
