From Kentucky. The following is from late papers received at this office: Late from Fishing Creek, Ky.--Gen. Crittenden not wounded, &c. We gather a few additional facts in relation to the late "Kuntucky Disaster" from the Knoxville Register. Eight Confederate regiments engaged fourteen regiments of the enemy: The false information of the enemy's force was brought by one Johnson, known familiarly as "Hogback Johnson." When our forces reached their breastworks, Gen. Crittenden concluded to fall back to the south side of the river. The little steamer which had lately arrived was taken charge of by Capt. Spiller. Our infantry were safely transported across, under the fire of the enemy's batteries, posted on the heights above. We lost the greater portion of our cavalry horses, tents and munitions. Gen. Carroll now has command of the division. Two of General Zollicoffer's aids--Major Fogg and Maj. Sheilds--were badly wounded. Whether the enemy had

The Daring bravery of Zollicoffer. --The Bowling Green Courier and the Nashville (Tenn.) Gazette, publish tolerably full accounts of the late Fishing Creek battle, but neither furnish any additional facts, except in relation to the death of Gen. Zollicoffer. The Courier is informed that Gen. Zollicoffer mistook a Kentucky or Ohio regiment which had opened fire upon our forces, for one of our regiments firing upon others through mistake, and galloped forward with his staff to order them to desist, not discovering his error till he was in their midst.--He immediately drew his sword and dispatched the Yankee Colonel to whom he was about to give orders, when he was fired upon, and fell pierced with many balls. Major Henry M. Fogg, of his staff, was wounded in the thigh; and Lieut. E. B. Shields, another of his staff was killed by his side. Major Fogg was borne from the field. The Gazette says: General Zollicoffer advanced to within a short distance of an Ohio regiment,

Nashville, Jan. 25 --The Fort Henry correspondent of the Union and American says that Federal gun-boats came up near to that post on the 22d inst., and fired four shots from behind Point Island.

It is thought they are erecting fortifications there.
It is very well understood that this is the force that was at Murray.
Stragglers from Fishing Creek bring very contradictory reports, but generally concur that the enemy lost more than the Confederates in that engagement.
The loss on our side is not stated, but former reports, at from two to three hundred, continue to be sustained.

A sad Accident. --We regret to learn that a member of the 30th Virginia regiment lost his life on the cars, between Weldon and Goldsboro', on Wednesday last.
