llowing 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 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 the Potomac — a Federal Transport done for. The Fredericksburg Herald, of th

trenchments deserted — the rebels having left 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 woundelk 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 discharge. His right flank is protected by the river, his left 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.

Zollicoffer's dead body is in the possession of the Federal troops. Considering the boasted impregnability of Zollicoffer's entrenchments, this is one of the most signal victories of the war. Further particulars of Saturday's battle. Cincinnati, Jan. 20. --The Lexington, Ky., correspondent of the Commercial, of this city, gives the following account of the battle fought on Saturday: Gen. Zollicoffer, learning that the Federal forces had appeared in his rear, marched out of his entrenchment at 3 o'clock on Saturday morning, and attacked Gen. Schoepff in his camp. Our pickets were driven in at an early hour on Saturday morning, and before daylight the attack was made. The battle is said to have raged with great fury until 3 o'clock in the afternoon,

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 still in the quiet possession of our troops, who, confident of success, anxiously a wait the approach of the enemy. If the Federal should reach Danville and Paris, they will undoubtedly seek to destroy the railroad and telegraphic lines, and thus out off communication between Memphis and Bowling Green. A few days — perhaps a few hours — may bring startling intelligence. Reported Federal victory in Kentucky

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 at Rowlett's, he returned to Horse Cave, which, after having conveyed to another point the moveable property, was laid is ashes. 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.
