outing party from Green River camp, a detachment from Capt. Polk's Tennessee cavalry, numbering four, crossed the river, reconnoitering the country along the upper turnpike leading towards Louisville, when they were intercepted by a strong picket from the Federal encampment at New Haven, and though sharp firing ensued they returned safely to camp the next morning. The loss of the enemy, if any, was not ascertained. Yesterday's rumor to the effect that the Mississippi brigade, now at Hopkinsville, under command of General A corn, will very soon make a demonstration upon the enemy's forces occupying Henderson and Owensboro, is still rife. You may look for startling news, provided be Federals remain long enough to test the mettle of the gallant Mississippi as, who have won, in addition to their well known prowess in arms, great praise from the people of Christian county, among whom they have been quartered for several weeks past. Exchange of prisoners at Columbus, Ky. The
From Kentucky. particulars of the surprise near Eddyville — our less greatly Exaggerated — capture of forty-four Confederates--the battle of Wildent, &c. From the latest copies of the Louisville (Bowling Green) Courier, we gather the following in relation to affairs in Kentucky: Particulars of the surprise near Eddyville, &C. A correspondent of the Courier, from Hopkinsville, has the following items of news: We have at last a little news in this section for you. Last Saturday morning about sunrise whilst Capt. Wilcox's company of cavalry were quietly taking breakfast at their camp six miles below Princeton on the Eddyville road, they were surprised by about 300 Lincolnites. Their horses were picketed and unsaddled and their guns were stacked in a church near by — but the gallant fellows managed to bring off all their guns and horses except about twenty of each — besides killing three and wounding 12 of the enemy. Their loss in addition to the guns and hor
From Kentucky. Removal of the Federal forces to Madisonville--Gen. Johnson's troops withdrawn from Greene — transfer of bank Stock, &c. Nashville, Nov. 4. --We have quite a batch of rumors here to-day. An officer from Camp Cheatham, who reached here on yesterday, reports that the Federal forces at Henderson, Kentucky, had moved to Madisonville, where they were joined by others, swelling the Federal column to ten thousand men, with the intention of marching on Hopkinsville. General Johnston has withdrawn his forces from Greene, which created considerable excitement at Clarkesville, Tennessee. In consequence of these reports, the banks there sent all their specie to Nashville.
Nashville, Nov. 6. --As was anticipated, the report that there were 10,000 troops marching on to Hopkinsville from Henderson, Ky., has turned out to be a Federal deception. A gentleman who arrived in Nashville on yesterday, and who left Louisville on Friday last, and passed through Henderson, reports that only a few Federal troops are at the latter place, and none between there and Hopkinsville. A dispatch in the New York Times, date at Washington, October 31, says there is Hopkinsville. A dispatch in the New York Times, date at Washington, October 31, says there is again great slackness in the way of enlistments, especially in the larger States. Enlistments are so few that the War Department propose to again return to the system of accepting men directly, without the interposition of State authorities. The New York Harald's Washington dispatches of October 31st, state that President Lincoln informed certain United States Senators, who called upon him to know when a forward movement would take place that the responsibility of such a movement was left
h two horses and a United States flag. The prisoners were brought to Rocky Hill yesterday afternoon, and will be sent here for safe keeping; the flag being the first captured by this division of the army, will be retained as a trophy. Full particulars of the engagement have not been received, although it is stated that six of the Federals were killed, while several of our men were severely wounded. It is currently reported here that Gen. Tilghman, with his entire command, has evacuated Hopkinsville and withdrawn his force in the direction of Clarksville, which latter place is being threatened with a land and water attack. A Sharp rebuke, A correspondent writing from Bowling Green states the following: An amusing incident, and one calculated to waken the Northerners to a keen sense of the hospitable reception with which they meet in their invasion of Kentucky, occurred at Louisville a few days since. A regiment from the Northern part of Indiana was being transferred
ce, made a great many arrests of prominent Southern men, and also scoured the adjacent country, arresting inoffensive citizens on their own farms and in their own houses; and many of them were taken from their beds. Some of the prisoners were compelled to take the oath of allegiance, and were then released, and about a dozen were taken by the scouts to Henderson, it is supposed, or to a Lincoln camp at Ashbysburg, on Green River. The scouts reach several miles out on the road leading to Hopkinsville — our informant says fifteen or twenty. There was great alarm among the citizens of Ladisonville and the surrounding country, and many of the best citizens were lying out in the woods and fields to escape the marauders, and many had fled the country. There was a rumor that one of the prisoners, a gentleman of high position, had been stripped of all his clothing, and had been most unmercifully whipped. The Federals, after committing other like depredations, returned Tuesday mor
An Egyptian doing good service. --Capt. Bradshaw, the daring Southern Illinois Guerilla Chief, is performing deeds of valor, and rendering essential aid to our cause in Southern Kentucky. Capt. B. has an independent command of about 40 mounted men, and is engaged in scouting expeditions. On the 12th he delivered over to Gen. Tilghman, at Hopkinsville, 36 rifled muskets, with their bayonets, cartridge boxes, &c. These Lincoln guns belonged to one Capt. Carper, and ware found secrated in the woods near Flat Lick, in Christian county. They were immediately placed in the hands of Texans, who will doubtless receipt to Old Abe for the same.--Louisville Courier 15th.
a citizen of Nashville. Lieut.-Colonel McGaverch, commanding at Fort Donelson, has detained the steamer Pink Marble and her crew to await instructions from Gen. Johnston. The machinery will be brought to this city. The reported capture of one hundred and thirteen Lincolnites, near Fort Donelson and Henry, is erroneous. The Patriot, of this city, learns that two Lincoln gun-boats came up the Cumberland river, or the 18th inst., to Canton, Kentucky, where a field piece from Hopkinsville opened fire on them. After a short engagement the enemy retreated, with quite a number of their force killed, and one of the gun-boats disabled. Our loss was four killed and a few wounded. The Clarksville Jeffersonian, of the 22d inst., gives a report of an engagement between the gun-boat Conestoga and a gun belonging to Capt. Southern's battery of flying artillery, near Canton. [This is probably the same affair as that reported in the previous paragraph.] The engagement continue
the Lincolnites, who placed a guard over the house where he was lying.--We sincerely trust his valuable life may be spared although we know he would infinitely prefer death, than to be a prisoner in the hands of the Hessians. Affairs at Hopkinsville. Gen. Lloyd Tilghman having been transferred to Columbus, the command of the volunteers at Hopkinsville, Ky., has devolved upon Gen. Charles Clarke, of Bolivar county, Miss, a gallant gentleman and a true soldier. Few men enjoy so high a degree of popularity as General Clarke, says the Louisville Courier, and the brave Mississippians, who comprise a large proportion of the troops stationed at Hopkinsville, will under his command in a measure forget the loss they sustained when their worthy commander, Gen. Alcora, whom they almost idolized, was transferred to another locality. The supply of Powder. The Confederate States will not be without sources of supply of this indispensable article as the war progresses. The Govern
From Kentucky. Nashville, Dec. 22. --Reliable intelligence received here announces that the Yankees, 9,000 strong, have crossed Green river and are marching towards Hopkinsville, Ky.--Our force at that point is 8,500 under Gen. Clark, of Miss., but reinforcements have been ordered from Clarksville to sustain General Clark. Passengers from Bowling Green report that 17,000 of the enemy crossed Green river on Friday. The Bowling Green correspondent of the Union and American, under date of the 20th instant, reports that place will be advanced upon from both sides, simultaneously, with a combined Yankee force of 60,000. Since the work and repairs on the railroad bridge have been commenced, several pontoon bridges have been thrown across the river, upon which wagons and cannon can easily be crossed. Gen. Hindman is ten miles South of Green river, and has been strongly reinforced. It is surmised that there will be no general engagement beyond Bowling Green, for
