From Cumberland Gap.

--A correspondent of the Knoxville Register, writing from Cumberland Gap, on the 17th, says:

‘ We have reliable news here to-day that the enemy is advancing on this point with a force of ten regiments; also, a force has gone by the way of Big Creek Gap. The intention of this move we are not able to tell; but if they call on us we will give them a happy reception.
