Tha Stanford (Ky.) correspondent of the Louisville Journal writes. Dec. 2 : For several days put report* have reached here that Zollicoffer or aome other rebel General waa on the other ahore of the Cumberland river, just below Somerset, with a large force, and that thej had hoiated the rebel flag in Wayne county. It ia reported that aome of their cavalry have croeaea the river in flatboats. but we eannot vouch for the truth of the report. The recent heavy raina have raiaed the Cumberland to flood height, which would greatly retard if not wholly obatruot their pasaage for a time. Col. Hoakina, with a small force of five or six hundred men, ia near Somerset, at Camp rt . !_ - * * - ? uoggiD. ana we learn bus sent orders to Gen. Thomas for reinforcement*, and that they have b?en tent on a forced march Oea. Scboepf, with two regiments, the 38th Ohio, Col. Bradley, and the 17th Ohio, Col. Connell. of Wildcat fame, together with a portion of Col Wolford * 1st Kentucky Cavalry, passed through here on Saturday, the .10th November, in double quick time, bound for the scene of in_ \r_ 1 ?i?- - ? vastuu nc mm mat otner regiments will 0ooq pass through here to join them, and with the force that will be collected there, led oo by the gallant Sohospf, we can promise Zollicoffer, or any other arch-rebel, the same hospitable reception that the invaders received at Wildcat. The same men and magnificent batteries of rifled cannon that sent terror and dismay and death to the invading horde at Wildcat, will be in readiness to do a similar work. With a few exceptions, this wins of the army is in fine condition, especially when it is true that they have done more hard traveling over bad roads than any other troops. These men are a portion of the Cumberland Gap division, and afler that expedition had ended they were a~ T n.i * 1 ^ viucicu >u ueguua or v/oiaiioii. ioeypwsd through here a week or ten daya since, presenting a magnificent appearance, and had proceeded about twelve miles below Danville, and a few days ginoe were ordered back to Somerset,which point they will reach to-night. Large numbers of hogs have been bought cp for the Cumberland river region, but are eviden'lv intended to ba aoM tn m?n !>" ?;n w ? ? - ? wvu fT?iv mil dispose of them to these rebels, unless a speedy top can be pat to the matter. Well informed persons in the locality of the invasion amert that this fiarry of rebels is designed to Lake these bogs by force if necessary and possible, and then make their exit. This is a plausible belief, and we are inclined to give it the fullest credence. We dout their meansto aocomplish the end, however, unless it is confined to Wayne county. Benefit* of Autumn Plowing. The tillage and drainage of the soil are r*ry closely related to each other. 80 indeed, as we said last week, are the tillage and manuring the soil. And tbnn, not merely as cause and efiect are related?though drainage does enable tillage, and tillage doei alter compoeition?but aa being operations of the tame clan and kind. And thus Mr. Bailey Denton, though engaged in a lecture upon land drainage last Monday, could not help referring to the steam plow?as the great tillage implement of the future. Ana we had from him, too. the striking fact bearing on the oompositioa of a fertile soil, that in a state of perfect tilth one-quarter of its bulk is air. Mf Smttk i\t T aU.W4 *? ~11 ^ v* uvib- vvuvuj oaio lUAl 1U Ail clay soiia containing the mineral elements of grain, perfect tilth dispenses with the need of manuring: and there cannot be a doubt that a deep and tfioroagh tillage enables soil to draw immensely on the stores of vegetable food contained in air and rain. Messrs. Hardy again say that perfect tilth dispenses with the need of drainage, and there can be bat little doubt that deep and thorough I tillage fasilitates tne operation of whatever drainage may exist, whether it be natural or artificial. In both these cases the useful lesson is well taaght. that it is true economy rather to put the cheap and copious storehouse of Nature's agencies to ita fall use, than by laborious and costly artificial means to imitate expensively their operation. Such a lesson applies, indeed, beyond the advantage of tillage to the methods'by which tillage is to be obtained. Among the earliest suggestions of cultivation by steam power was that of reducing by its means the soil to tilth at once. The land was to be torn down as the deal is torn down at the saw-mill; thongh before the machine it may have been as hard and firm as wood. h*hind t/?! u it ed *t work it wu to lie as light and fine as sawdust. Bat it has at length been found that it is better because cheaper, and more perfect, too, to leare this last refinement of the tillage process to the weather, which does it without oost. The land is now torn? smashed up?or moved and thrown about by ?low or grubber in great olods and lumps, his is best done in dry autumn weather, and thus it lies till spring. Certainly no climate is better adapted for cheap tillage than the tngiun?the rains and frosts of winter following a dry 3eptember and October must penetrate and thrust asunder the clang and hardened masses of the toil. No twe particles hall remain adhering to each other, if you only giro room and opportunity to the cheapest and most natural disintegrator in the world. No rasp, or saw. or mill reauce the indurated land to soft and wholesome tilth so nerfectlv a* a winter's frost. And all that you need to attain its perfect operation is, first to provide an outlet for the water when it comes?bj an efficient drainage of the subeoil, aod then to mors the land while dry and break it np into clods aad fragments no matter how large they be, and leave them for alternate ratn and drouth and frost snd thaw to do their utmost.

VkARI/O. 4* VW I respondent informs as that, on the 22d alt., a party of Home Guards from Edmondson and Grayson counties, numbering 100 men, advanced across Green river and took possession of the town of Brownsville (which is on the south side ef that stream, and within Backner's linee) and hoisted the Federal flag, which had bean taken down a short time before by the rebels. The Guards sent oat their piekets in the direction of the rebel encampment, whose pickets extended within three miles of town. The Unionists remained in peaceable possession long enough to dine and refreeh themselves, when their piekets came in and gave novice of the approach of about 200 rebel cavalry and infantry with two pi ?cm of artillery, commanded by Brig. Geo. x. C. Hindman, of Arkansas. The Home Guards then nroeeeded caution* ly to the river. Crossing at their leisure, the/ had ample time to select their position on the north aide, which wu above and below the ferry, where thej were sheltered by heavy timber, the embankments forming fine fortifications for the undisciplined Green Hirer banters. The enemy opened a beary fire with their eannon and inaskets, which was promptly responded to by oar brave boys who were armed with muskets and banting rifles. The engagement oontinaed for two hoars and a half, daring whioh time there was a constant fire kept up by both parties.

TELEGRAPHIC NEWS. fra? the L>per Paltaaa-Attack f ih? ftrkeli it Dim > 0?Their Final RtpaUe. Fkbdbbicc, Dec. 9.?Col. Leonard, of the Thirteenth Maasachusetta regiment, arrived here th'? morntne from WtlltamsDort. with Imnortant advice* from the Upper Potomac On Saturday afternoon a rebel force, constating of a battery of six pieces and about 400 Infantry and *2W) cavalry, made their appearance at Dam No. 5, on the Virginia aide of the river, and commenced throwing ahells and shot at the dam and houses on the Maryland shore, burning a barn and riddling all the houses within raflge, continuing the fire until dusk. The only Union forces thereto oppose the enemy were a company of the Thirteenth Massachusetts, on picket duty, and an unarmed regiment from Illinois As the M?ssachusetta cempany were armed with smooth bore muskets, their fire waa not effective at that distance. Early on Sunday morning the rebels resumed the fire with artillery and small arms, and, emboldened by th? slight resistance with which they wcic met un ^aiuruay, crnnc uown 10 loe very brink of tbe river and exposed themselves without fear. During tbe night Col Leonard dispatched a canal boat from Wllllamaport, and brought another company of hit regiment, armed with Knfleld rifles, who were concealed as skirmishers along the Maryland shore On tbe renewal of tbe attack, the riflemen opened tire from their concealment, and in a short time the rebel artillerists were compelled to abandon their battery in hot baste, the Infantry and cavalry leaving tbe ground about tbe same time. The rebel lots is believed to have been from fifteen to twenty killed and badly wounded. For want of a sufficient Infantry force, and a battery to protect their movements, Col. Leonard was In l?i r?Kola' ???n? ' ? r ? ? - .v? V ?*v ? p^uu* IVMiaiU i U p* ' I * tion, and after nightfall the enemy returned and took them off Their battery conalated of three Parrott ten-pounders; one twelve-pounder, carrying the Sawver shell, and two smooth bore aixpoundera. Some of the enemy's infantry were armed with improved long-range r1fl?s. This force came from Bath, and the cavalry and Infantry came by the railroad from Martinaburg. They probably were en route to Winchester or Harper's Ferry, and stopped at that oolnt to deatroy the dam, and thus impede canal transportation . Tbia morning the rebela were In considerable forre, and kept up a ?cat'erlng fire with their rillea upon our men, whenever viaible. One of OUT men was struck tveirp uiiu?r?lu urn?m/1o<*. but thia is the only casualty on our side during the whole afflr. At eleven o'clock last Light a portion of the Jst brigade here was put in readiness to start for W11llamsport, but at a later hour the order was countermanded. This day at noon a battery of Parrott guus was forwarded to Harper's Ferry by a train, to be in I readiness should the rebels again wish to test their skill in projectiles.
