Aft attack upon the fort is expected front both sides of the River. The 40th Illinois about 900 Strong is reported to be the Only Force at Paducah. Great dissatisfaction exists among the volunteers against Gen. Smith. The River is rising and is now nearly Bank full. Nashville Jan. 28.-it is ascertained that eight regi four to five thousand now definitely ends numbering to in participated in the Battle of fishing Creek the most of them were in the hardest part of the tight and All of them fought desperate until overborne by Superior numbers. The enemy certainly numbered Twenty one regiments. The latest advices report Gen. Crittenden encamped at Lexington having succeeded in recruiting nearly All Bis forces. A bet Kwh eur Febok and the Norfolk correspondent of the j Petersburg express has the following Mir i slap Ataik Tot Umb with the Kim t the following article regarding the movements the enemy in the Gulf and interest Mobile the Telegraph informs it that the enemy have new to Cedar keys Florida after a supposed hard a Ghl for its Possession. Some time a Autheo a Iti Snepar tial evacuation of ship it Stajdl and that there were but three or four Crai Lirt in the Anchor age and great was the curiosity to know whither had gone the valorous hosts of Picayune Butler and to what end. Within the last three or four Days we hear that Harbor of Blip Island is again populous with about thirty sail and that the appearance of increased forces on the Island cannot be mistaken. Putting this and that together we Are bound to c me to the conclusion that the capture of Cedar keys was a demonstration from the enemy s Gulf base of operations at ship Island to which they have now returned victorious. Cedar keys As our readers May of May not know is the Gulf terminus of the Florida Peninsular the enemy have Long contemplated in attack on Fernandina its Atlantic terminus but have been deterred As yet by the strength of the position As themselves state. Having Possession of this Road across the Peninsula with a Good Harbor at either end they would command an important adjunct of their Gulf operations. Fernandina is within sixty hours of new York five or six hours will take them across Florida to Cedar keys whence they can dispatch at Short notice men and munitions to Pickens ship Island and such other positions on the coast As they May hereafter occupy. If they get Possession of Fernandina on the Atlantic As they have of Cedar keys on the Gulf Sharp fighting will be necessary to prevent them from opening the Road from one to the other through the richest heart of East Florida and the dangerous a proximity to Jacksonville and Brunswick and satan afr a the rear the March to which would be through an open country. If the enemy get control of the Road across the Peninsula of Florida As they seem to be attempting ship Island will be within five Days of fortress Monroe Aud the route will enable the enemy to throw supplies and reinforcements into the Gulf positions with great facility. So Picayune Butler May be placed in the. Force to attempt larger things thao his recent exploit at Cedar keys. Of course the Road would at once be torn up but it could soon be repaired by a competent Force should such a Force take Possession of the route. We Trust that the route will be held so that the enemy cannot m be on Fernandina from the rear and that Fernandina. Will be More successfully defended against Seaward attack than Cedar keys was. I a v the Newbern Progress. Burnside have at last after several Days painful suspense Learned something definite of the Whf about of Burnside and his Fleet of gunboats capt. Sal or in command of the Stramer Johnston went own the other Day to Portsmouth and leaving there late thursday evening arrived Here Earl. Ing and reports positively that 42 gunboats att 2 sailing vessels were in the Harbor at Hatteras. Me did not see the Fleet Bim of but fell in with a gentleman who came up with him whose name we 4a toot recollect but who he says is reliable from whom he received the above intelligence he having seen and counted the vessels himself. He also states that the Fleet has been assembling there for the last week. This Isk no Street Rumor and gives intelligence of som ing having a show of tangibility but whether the Fleet really intends to Buie jul this direction or is intended for the Bora Hatteras to avoid the Stormy weather All remains in the Region of conjecture. Foot Henrt Jan. 28,3 a. K. The foreign consuls that is the consuls of England and France Are to receive mails every month. The two governments a to Utako it by turns and in that Way either a French or British Man of War will reach Norfolk monthly. So it will be seen our trans Atlantic Brethren do not mean Tut rust their mails to the care of the Lincoln ites any longer. This is a move i the right direction which will very Likely be a courier has \ followed up by others. The Van Buren Ark press has the following we regret to announce the death of major Harris quartermaster of Greer s Texas of gig Meni which occurred yesterday at c Imp wig fall where the regiment to which he a attached Iseo camped. His death r stilted from an Accident which happened to him at a saw Mill a few Days since
