formerly county Judge of Boyle county, and a cousin of the Messrs. Speed at Louisville, lately made two speeches in Danville for recruits. At the end of the second speech, one fellow approached Judge Fry, and said he would follow him to the cannon's mouth, whereupon, being stupidly drunk, he was recruited. Having sobered up, he deserted the next morning, and is now supposed to be in the Confederate service. One of our informants states there were about six hundred men (reported) at Greensburg under General Ward, well armed, having one brass cannon. General Ward sent word to General Buckner to look out, that he was coming to take him. General Zollicoffer had reached London, in Laurel county, before our informant left Danville, which was on Saturday, and was advancing. The people of Madison county had met in Richmond, their county seat, and subscribed four hundred beeves for General Zollicoffer's army, and offered to find them for ninety days. Madison county is nearly unan
From Kentucky. the reported skirmish at Greensburg--Gen. Hardee's movements — the Strength of Lincoln's forces, &c. Nashville, Oct. 21. --It is announced now that the reported skirmish at Greensburg, Ky., was premature. The Bowling Green correspondent of the Union and American says that Gen. Hardee's command did not reach there until the afternoon of the 18th inst. He was delayed by a sudden rise in the Little Barren. The Lincolnites fled several hours before Hardee arrived. The town was almost deserted by the citizens. Ward has retreated from Muldraugh's hill, where from Sherman's manœnvring no stand could be made. Rousseau still occupies Nolin, with several thousand men, and does not seem able or disposed to make an advance. The entire Lincoln force between Louisville and Nolin does not exceed fifteen hundred men
nd Gap, but his main force of eight thousand is at Youngsville, a distance of twenty miles from the railroad, ready for transportation to Nashville for service on the Nashville road. My informant says it is not the policy of the rebels to oppose Gen. Rousseau's progress down the Nashville road until his forces shall have crossed Green river. For obvious reasons the rebel pickets and scouts have all been withdrawn from the region of country between Bowling Green, Ghagow, and Greensburg, and my informant is clearly of opinion that it would be fatal to Gen. Rousseau's command to cross the Green river with anything like the present force under his command. There are at present many military gentlemen in Lebanon from your city. From Eastern Kentucky--Fright of the Lincolnites. The Cincinnati Commercial publishes the following letters from citizens of Portsmouth, Ohio.

The Louisville Courier, of Monday last, 21st, has what purports to be a correct statement of the operatiBowling Green last week. It seems that Gen. Hardee started from Bowling Green, on the 23d, with 1500 men, destined for Greensburg, to break up a Federal encampment at the latter place. He was delayed in his march by a sudden rise in Little Barren real Bull Run style. Some two hundred and fifty of the caviar, succeeded in effecting of the crossing, and proceeded to Greensburg, but the Lincolnites, some fourteen hundred in number, having been advised of the movements, precipitately fled towards Lebanon.--The cavalry then occupied Greensburg, where they still remained on Monday evening. But for the inopportune rise in Little Barren, the surprise of the enemy would have been complete, and their entire force would have been captured. Gen. H.

The Louisville Journal publishes the following paragraph: After Gen. Ward fell back twelve miles from Greensburg to Campbellsville, he dispatched oneGreensburg to Campbellsville, he dispatched one hundred and fifty cavalry about two o'clock on Saturday to reconnoitre the abandoned position, explore as far as possible, and as certain the numbers and location of the Confederates, intending to attempt a return yesterday, but the cavalry had not returned in the morning, when our informant left. Gen. Ward has about 2,000 regul Cols. Grider, Harlan, Anderson, and Hobson. The Home Guards are principally from Marlon and Washington counties. C.

So you see I can't control it. Thos. Ward, Esq., of Greensburg, wants a brigade. I wrote to him that I thought he could only get a regiment, and that he would have to raise, and if he did. I guess Hobson would join him. This is all I can do. You had better see another law which passed yesterday for home gfear 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.

They were informed by persons in Louisville and beyond that place, who seemed to be intelligent, that General Buckner's forces hereabouts numbered seventy-five or one hundred thousand, and that if he were disposed he could easily take the city of Louisville, as the Northern army was not near so strong. Arrests of Secessionists. The Louisville Journal, (Lincolnite,) of the 18th ult., says: Seven prisoners were brought in from the neighborhood of Greensburg Saturday morning and lodged in jail in our city. Their names are as follows: Benjamin Dulaney, Lewis Sheats, Thomas White, George Lail, James Ratchford, J. B. Creason, and Edwin Burk. They were captured by a detachment from General McCook's brigade as they were on their way to join the rebel forces. Thomas B.

Morgan's Federal army at Cumberland Gap has escaped our forces and safely arrived at Greensburg, Ky. The Cincinnati Commercial gives the following account of his successful evacuation of the Gap: Gen. Morgan left Cumberland Gap on the night of the 17th of September, the force of the rebel Gen.
