From Kentucky.

There seems to be very little doubt that General Bragg has fallen back beyond Camp Dick Robinson, and there is just as little doubt that he has been joined by Gen. E. Kirby Smith, and that his command is now in a most advantageous position, wherever it may be located. It will be observed in our Northern advices at the 18th, published to day, that the victorious dispatches first sent to the press there, intended for effect on the elections, have materially changed in their character, and admit a repulse in every attack on Bragg. At Camp Dick Robinson they were very sure of catching him, but were disappointed. It is rumored that the War Department has received dispatches from Gen. Bragg, announcing his command completely successful in every conflict in which it was engaged.
