Coming on down to Cave City, the people were notified of the doom that awaited them. The furniture and household chattels were taken charge of the torch applied, and soon all the buildings were a heap of smouldering ruins. It is reported to-day that Mammoth Cave hotel and Ritter's hotel and buildings, at Woodland, have also been burned; and it is asserted that every public house on the line of the railroad and the turnpike above the junction, within our lines, are to share the same fate. Gentlemen just from the scene of these destructive operations represent appearances as being desolate and painful in the extreme. Scarcely anything in the shape of articles of sustenance remain along the line of Hindman's march. He drove off quantities of live stock, and many cattle and hogs were killed and l

ss is represented as prevailing among the people of that region. It is rumored to-day in town that Gen. Hindman is to be superseded by come other officer. What foundation there exists for the report I have not been able to ascertain. His acts above are understood to have been performed under military orders reluctantly given, as a rigorous, though an imperious, necessity of the times. The possession and occupancy of the property destroyed, by the Federal, (who say they will be ready in a few days to come in force against us,) would have aided them no little in their monstrous designs upon the South. Miscellaneous. Mr. Davids, of Massachusetts, from the Committee on Elections, reported that Joe.

Carlin was making every preparation for the impending struggle at that point. An attack was thought to be inevitable last night, but will not probably take place until to- day. The Wisconsin regiment which left here on Wednesday arrived safely at Ironton yesterday. A battery of the 1st Missouri Light Artillery, under command of Maj. Schofield, started from this city yesterday, and probably reach Pilot Knob this morning.Pilot Knob this morning. The rebels had not destroyed any more of the bridges.

Schoepff, and the rebels under General Zollicoffer. The engagement was commenced in the morning, and lasted till nightfall. Gen. Zollicoffer was killed, and his arand attacked him at six o'clock on Saturday morning, near Webb's Crossroads, in the vicinity of Somerset. At half-past 3 o'clock, on Saturday afternoon, Zollicoffer and Bailie Peyton had been killoss have yet reached here. The scene of the victory. The scene of the late victory is Somerset, the capital of Pulaski county, Ky., and is situated six miles north of the Cumberland river, intense delight here. The position of the Federal troops.

e doubt that we have suffered a severe reverse in that quarter: Advance of the Federals--Paris and Danville in danger. From the Memphis Avalanche, of the 20th inst., we take the following: It appears to be generally believed, from all the indications, that the long-threatened advance of the Federals is now in progress. A gentleman who reached this city, in the late train last night, states that the Federals, to the number of about 20,000, were advancing upon Paris and Danville, Tenn., and had already passed Farmington, Ky., on their way to the points designated. Farmington is in the vicinity of Paducah. When our informant passed Danville and Paris great excitement prevailed, and the Federals were hourly expected. It is supposed that the 20,000 here spoken of constitute a part of the immense force which lately left Cairo for Tennessee river, the remainder having probably been detailed to look after Forts Henry and Donelson which at last accounts, were stil

There is evidently much feeling abroad at the escape of the war-ship Pensacola from our batteries on her passage down from Washington. It is reported, but we have been unable to trace it to a reliable source, that Gen. Johnston either has or intends to change the command and force at one or more of the Upper Potomac Batteries. There are also reports about court- martials, &c., but, as before remarked, it may all be idle rumor. Operations of Gen. Hindman in Kentucky. The Bowling Green correspondence of the Nashville Banner, writing under its recent date, furnishes the following interesting intelligence of the operations of Gen. Hindman's forces: In my last, mention was made of the burning of Cave City, Horse Cave, Rowletts, etc., by the forces of Gen. Hindman, which have for some time been stationed at Glasgow Junction. Since the date of writing, more full particulars of his transactions have been received. After having effected the destruction of the property

t all their cannon, quartermaster's stores, tents, horses, and wagons, which fell into our hands. The rebels, in dispersing, had crossed the Cumberland river in a steamboat and nine barges, at White Oak creek, opposite their encampment at Mill Spring. Two hundred and seventy-five (275) rebels were killed and wounded, including Zollicoffer and Peyton. The dead were found on the field. The Tenth Indiana Regiment lost 75 killed and wounded. No further particulars of the Federal loshe position of the troops at Somerset, is thus described in a letter from there, dated January 15, which we clip from the Philadelphia Press, of the 21st. The status here is simply this: Crittenden having taken the command of the troops at Mill Spring, while Zollicoffer has gone to Nashville, remains with the bulk of his 12,000 men, entrenched, and defended by 11 pieces of field artillery, and some 20 of the cannon manufactured in the Confederacy, and warranted to burst on the third dischar

t by White Oak Creek, (a stream with high bluff banks, impassable at the camp to our troops,) while his front rests on a succession of hills, not steep, but so commanding that they cannot be taken without great slaughter, unless their defenders cut and run. With their only route of escape cut off by our forces moving toward Monticello, we may well imagine that if the enemy fights at all it will be with desperation. On our part, General Boyle is somewhere on the Cumberland river, near Burkesville, waiting for artillery. General Thomas is fifteen sides this side of Columbia, or was at last accounts, waiting till a creek runs down, and we are here waiting for orders. The telegraph has caught the general infection, and after getting within eight miles or us has stopped, waiting for insulators. The late Gen. Felix K. Zollicoffer.

ovement of the Mexicans. The Houston Telegraph, of the 10th, contains the following important item: Our Brownsville correspondent gives unimportant piece of information regarding the movements across the Rio Grande. The sham fight at Matamoras is, of course, unworthy of further attention, but the approach of Vidaurri, with 7,000 men, to make his headquarters at Matamoras, as a representative of the Mexican Federal government, the government that has been making the late treaties withMatamoras, as a representative of the Mexican Federal government, the government that has been making the late treaties with Tom Corwin, that receives a loan of ten millions and protection from the United States, for some purpose or other — we say this military movement demands attention, and measures should at once be taken to keep the closest watch on the doings of that republic. A force of 7,000 Mexicans, joined to as many Northern troops, might give us some trouble, especially if supported by raids upon our coast. It still looks as though Texas might be a theatre of war within a twelvemonth or less. From
