"Although I have no reason to presume that

of the neutral attitude thus assumed by Ken-.
tacky, there seems to be some uneasiness, felt
among some portion of the State, occasioned by
the collection of bodies of troops along their

prehension, and to secure to the people their cherish.
ed object of peace, this communication is to repre
sent these facts, and elicit an authoritative as
surance that the government Of the Confederate
Stated will "Ocatintie to respect and observe the
Neil:kin indicated as assumed by Kentucky."
The correspondence between klagoffin and the
Governor'of Tennesgee seems to have been long
and affectionate. Under date of August 12th
Regalia thus vrri to Harris :
"In a few days hope to be able to inform
your Excellency o the disbanding of the or
ganization to which you have been pleased to
call my attention. ' I am satisfied a large ma
jority, even of the Union men in Kentucky are
opposed to any such organization here by the
Federal government, or the transportation of
arms, men or munitions of war over our soil to
the state of Tennesseis.
Barris replied in this style :
" We feel that socially; commercially, politi
cally „and geographically, you are so connected
with us as to render hatred and hostility anom
alobs and unnatural. The Confederate govern
ment has' never demanded, arid we trust and
believe never will demand, that we should
wantonly and unjustly infringe the neutrality
of Kentucky; and our policy and intentions iu
this regard have been not only expressed, but
demonstrated by our conduct up to this time.
"Under these circumstances, we cannot be
lieve that Kentucky will, at .the instigation of
either of the belligerents, abandon the position
of neutrality so lately and solemnly assumed,
or permit it to be so used as to render a hollo vs
peace more harrassing and danbruus than open
The Louisville ioniwal of Saturday says of Ma-'
goffin's meow : • . ,
" The message of Governor itagoffin, consid
eredin its general relations ' is nothing more or
less than a plea in advance fur the invasion of
Kentucky by the Confederate army; unless the
legialature shall define neutrality as the seces
sionists dein:telt, and maintain neutrality ae
the secessionists would have it maintained. In
other words, the message whilst apparently
professing to refer everything to the free deter
mination of the legislature, virtually indicates
everything to the legislature, under the menace of an
invasion by the confederate army if the legislature
does not tamely submit to the dictation. This
is the long and short of the message. On a full
and• fair consideration, nothing else can be
made of it. Nothing else can be .succesefully
made of it on even the narrowest and most par
tial ;consideration. The point is really too clear
for controversy." • •
The journal also contains the following pars

men, and any amount of artillery. He came

There is no warlike news from the Virginia'
side, and the prospect of a battle is not consid
ered very near.
This morning long and heavy columns 'of
smoke were seen over the river, which, w ere
thought by many people, to indicate a collie
sion between the two armies ; but it turned out
to be smoke caused by the burning of brush be
tween Munson's Hill and Arlington
A regiment of the rebel army was distinctly
seen this morning drilling on Munson's Hill.
No guns were visible, but it is believed that
they have some mounted below the high en
trenchments thrown up. ,
A correspondent on.board the steamer Poca
hontas, of the Potomac fleet, gives the follow
ing : The line of batteries at Acquia Creek ex
tend about six miles. They crossed the rail
,rmul not far from the depot, and extend, in one
direction, as far as Potomac Creek, where there
is another battery.
These batteries are well posted, and appear
to.lbe in good condition. They have some large
guns, and their praCtice shows they understand
their management. Some of the guns are rifled,
and they appear to have an eight inch colum
biad. • One of their rifled guns, a few days ago,
threw a shell across the Potomac, which is here
about four miles wide.
The battery at the creek is under the com
mand of Capt. Walker ; then there is a battery
of flying artillery, commanded by Capt. Brax
ton, and mother, lately from Richmond, which
consists of six large pieces, one of them rifled,
two howitzers and three other brass pieces, and
at least fifty horses. There is another compa
ny, kid to be made up of Baltimore boys.
The water 'defances are under the command
of Capt. Lynch, formerly of the U. S. Navy,
and who conducted the exploring expedition to
the Dead See,. As near as can be ascertained,
there are'at least 16,000 rebel troops at Acquia
Creek. They are bold and defiant, and appear
ready for action. -
Not long since a`fleet of twelve or fifteen ves
sels anchored off the creek, and from the move
ments on shore, we'suppose the rebels expected
an attack. As the night closed in we could dis
cover butlwo or three batteries, but at dawn
the next morning we could distinctly see a long
line:of batteries, extending at least four or five
