Rua tellville. situated in 44 a low, green valley," twentj-eight miles from Bowling Greeo, and two hundred and thirty mile* from Memphis by railway, is a town containing three thoasand inhabitants, and noted as the place where the Provisional Government was pat on its leg?. For the present it is the headquarters of Generals Floyd and Backner. Tnere is a large army here, the tents being pitched for miles along the railroad, which touches the western pa* of the town. As in other localities where troops have been massed, there is a perfect rqneese here, all the available space in the hotels and private houses being folly appropriated. Bat, notwithstanding the absence of oomfort, one feels more at home in Raseellville than in Bowling Green. In the latter, tke people are root in rnetr treatment oj tout/urn soiaters, or, at Knit, only tolerably polite and attentive. The truth it, that before General Johnson's arm* vmnt to Bowline Green, the bullof the inhabitants sympathized with the lfn*on cause of Lincoln. A powerful reaction has taken place within the last two months, and thoM who atill cling to the ".flesh pots of Egypt'' are mate. The ladies, God bless them, are outspoken for the South. Here oar friends are not few or far between. They speak oat and act oat manfully. Hence there is a feeling among the soldiers that they are in the midst of the beet and the bravest of Kentuckians There are plenty of the very finest artillery here that are in the service; plenty of the best horses; plenty of soldiers to whip twice their number of " Yank?;'" plenty to eat and wear The males that poll the transportation wagons are, beyond all doubt, unequalled by any in the southern army. Yesterday was spent by Generals Floyd and _ ? Kil.yimj n .r imposing, and the General in command was well pleased with the thorough training and preparations for marching of the various brigades. The 2d Kentucky was the observed of all cbaervers. from norfolk. [Special correspondence of the Dispatch ] Norfolk, Feb 3.?I learn that more slaves effected their escape last week from Norfolk county. They belonged to farmers residing on or near Tanner's Creek. They doubtless get off at night in boats sufficiently large to cross the Roads and land them at or near Fortress Monroe. The loss of valuable negro men falls heavily upon the gentlemanly and kindhearted farmers and gardeners in the section of the country above mentioned, and prompt and jadieioas measures should at once be taken to Jirevent slaves from getting off by water to the arts and vessels of the common enemy. The deluded negroes, thus leaving their best friends and comfortable homes, where they are f||<] tr A a 1 lrt wa/i all raoanr> aKIa rv?iw. ileges, vainly suppose that they will fare better. and be more favorably situated under the protection of the Yankees, than at home, where they h*v? been reared and provided for. And notwithstanding the reliable statements relative to the strict rules to which thev have to nbmjt. and the rigid and inhospitable treatment they receive after they get within the enemy's lines, it is believed that these stampedes will continue, unless a thorough lookout be kept along the shore, and esp?cially near the mouths of Tanner's and Mason's Creeks. VXOM TBI SOCTIHUi COAST. TFrom the Savannah Republican, Jan. 38.J We had quite an excitement in the eity yesterday, eaaaed by the report that six vessels of the enemy bad entered the river back of Little Tybee. and had pissed up to the north portion of Wilmington Island, to a position where they could readil7 shell vessels passing up and down the river. This report was brought by the Ida on her return trip from the fort, and she bore the marks of its truth about her. Several shots were fired at her on her passage op. and a shell exploded within some twenty feet of her, injuring no one, but breaking a portion of the glass about the boat by the conenssion Should be allow*to trkfrt tkey art, the navigation of the river may be considered at closed to unarmed vessels. We u? two gentlomen lut evening who were banting in a boat at the north end of Wilmington when the Yankee* made their appearaaoa. Tbey shelled the laland in every direction, end indicated by their movement* that they intended to effect a landing at Ecrevea's plantation. The channel leading to the city around the north end of Wilmington wu heavily piled eome months ago, and it will be impossible for the Yankee boats to pass on til the obstructions Khali have been removed, which will prove no easy task. 6hoald tne enemy sacoeed in maintaining his present position, communication with Fort Pulaski will be eat off, for the reason before stated, though we have the means of making the berth anything bat a comfortable one. The fort is well supplied with provisions?perhaps enough for six months?and has little to fear from an attack. T* L_k At. .A - * XI ia ?ui proper Ulll v? snouja exnort our people to be calm and resolute under tke oircudiUimm that now surround them. We do ncrt consider the eity in any immediate danger, if % danger at all, and hence can Me no ground for alarm, whilst we hare every reason to be diligent in ear preparation* to meet every emergency that may arise. < Che News of the same date, referring to the affair. cays: ' The pteame- Ida arrived from Fort Pulaski about 2i o'clock yesterday afternoon. ShortIt after leaving the fort, her officers observed that several of the enemy's gun-boats had been lying in the rear of the Little Tybee, had got under way, and were rapidly approaching the Ida through a out called Freeborn's Creek, which leads from Little Tybee into St. Augustine Creek. The Ida put on all her steam, but by the time she reached a point opposite Cabbage Island, six of the gun-boaU were in fall view, and one. suppoeed to be not more thaa a mile and half distant, opened fire. The first shot passed the stern of the Ida. The a?onnd pasted tome ten or Aft ten feet over har walking-beam. The third, a shell, exploded .1._ m /..t u ? L - wnoin ? iew iwi ui aor oow, me concussion oi its explosion shAttared the glass of her skylight. Two other shot* wore fired at the Ida. bat fell considerably short. The Ida made good speed to the oitj, where she armed without injury. The Ida reports two gunboat* lying at the Carolina side of the month of Wail's Cut, near where our reconnoitering party destroyed their huts on SundaT. The appearanoe of the enemy's gunboats in our creaks took oar citizens somewhat by surprise. as it was believed that the miner inlets to our harbor had been effectually obstructed. We are noi sufficiently acquainted with the creeks and cuts leading into our main obasinels to know whether the enemy's vessels eaa come in through them, and thus cut off oar oommaaieation with Fort Pulaski and other fortifica Man" mat. accohbt or rai dbfkat at mill apaixs.

We bad entrenchment*, it is true; bat they are said to have been utterly indefensible against an attack by a superior force. We bad twelve pieces of artillery?but against the long range guns of the enemy tbej were useless. A deep and rapid river was behind our army, and the means of crossing it were a small steamer and th ?aa fftprv flatf Anlw flnffirtianf in all 4 M w%m \UI vv IW1IJ U -*w^ vm^ WkMUIVUH IU ?11 IV H?UO" port at one carrying three hundred men. The country around *u utterly devoid of provisions. The most untiring efforts of commissaries had been only availing to drain the oountry for twenty miles southward of every article for Surchwe; while on the immediate road to noxville, enough provisions oould not be bought, from dar to day, to subsist a single tesm. A more indefensible position than Beech Grove, it is said, oould hardly be imagined as long as an enemy was in front. , Mill Spring could lave been better befended; but even these, the entire absence of facilities for sup plies in the rear, and the stoppage of commanieation with Naahville by the river, would have compelled an edvanoe at a very early date, or a retrogade movement, even had no enemy been threatening. A movement of one kind or the other waa a military nejqMity. Amid these unpleaaant facts word was brought to Oen. Crittenden of an advance by the enemy?aay of eight to ten thousand men? from Col umbia, and of a 1 arge force from Sumerset, evidently with a view to gtorm our intrenchments. The result may be imagined had thia been attempted; for we were without suitable means of transportation across the river, and all avenues of retreat could have bean effMintllT off hv tho An*mv ? j ~j j "B above and belew Mill Spring. Gen. Crittenden is stated to have had bat three courses to purtue ?to at once fall back ingloriously, and retreat without & blow; to stay still and be stormed oat, and surrender whenever the enemy approached--or be starved out and surrender within a week; or else to make an abvance movement into Kentucky. The entire army at Mil! Spring had been reduced to a simple ration ot beef and a half ration of corn, the latter eaten as parched corn, and not issued as meal. T*nH?r onAtaUk *V-. ----- v.?vh?u?vouuv*, au j Tfiiu IUO IC port of the advance movement of the enemy, both from Columbia and from Somerset, a council of ' ar was held on Saturday evening, Jan. 18. With 5,000 brave men behind them, the council of war thought that they oould drive before them twice that number or northern hireling!). The council is positively said to have been unanimous in its decision. Both brigadier generals, all the colonels, and the captains of artillery and independent companies, viewed the matter in the same light. The alternatives presented were an inglorious retreat without a blow, an impracticable defence of intrenebments, ending in a surrender, or an eventual starving out, with a similar result At 12 o'clock at night our oolumns moved, and marched ten miles before break of day. There they met the enemy, drove them back half a mile, three times charged them, and as often swept their adversaries from the field. We brought into action less than 4,000 men. Almost one-half of th? l.ith Miaaiaainni ? ?> ?ir* ' ment?commanded by Lieut. Col. E. C. Walthall?fell upon the bloody field. Over 200 of the 440 the 15th brought into action fell in battle. It is said that thii gallant regiment fouzht with the enemy almost at ten paces ; and, for fifty yards in their onward charge, had to walk orer the dead bodies of Yankees The battle is said to hare been turned by the untimely reinforcement of the federal troops. Instead of tea regiments opposed to as, we had to fight nearly thirteen, and that with only seven regiments on our side, and these reduced to one-half their ordinary sise. One reliable fresh regiment at the tarn of the fiirht miffht havfl fnr intKo kniflo nil broke effeotually the enemy's recruited racks. A* it was, regiment after regiment of the enemy deployed into tbe field. It was not until the breaking of oar cavalry, communicating a false alarm to some of tbe Tennessee troops, and the pooring in of fresh regiments of the enemy, that a retreat was made, nor wag it ordered by the General commanding. The retreat was made in good order, and by three o'oloek in the afternoon our army wus inside its entrenchment*. Immediately a sever e cannonading was oommenoed hv th? *n. omy. making it evident that their superiority of gjuns could eventually drive oar forcoa from their camp. Between dusk and dawn oar entire army wm taken across the river, with the loas merely of the artillery, and worn out tents and camp equipage. Long before tho enemy dreamed of the evacuation, our forces had gained an available point to resist any onward movement of theirs. The abandonment of the artillery was a necessity. The approaches to the river on both sides were very high and preoipitous; the roads almost belly aeep in mud to a horse, and the conveyanae of the guns across would have exhausted hoars and means imperatively demanded for the men. The army camped on Monday night two milea beyond Monticello, the sick and woundad ht*. ing been sent on before. From Monticello it marched by easy stage* to Livingston, where it spent Saturday, the 25th, and reached ftainsboro' Sunday evening. Here Qen. Crittenden is encamped for the present, felly supplied with provisions, and busy with the work of reor?;anization. One steamer has already arrived rom Nashville with stores and camp and garrison equipage, and another is daily expected. Our informant is satisfied that Qen. Critten den was placed in an emergenoy of difficult choice, and that the battle, however disastrous, saved his command from the alternative of surrender or a fat* of equal severity.

KAIL RCSSBLL'S REPLY TO MR. SEWARD'S ARGUMENT ON TBI AFFAIR. Eari Russell, In a dispatch dated Jan. 23, to Loid Lyons, says the EngHsh Government dill'ers entirely from Mr. Seward's conclusions on the question whether the persons taken from the Trent, and their supposed dispatches, were contrIIhand Hp iirirp? thu nnlnt Un,.?h an<i ? ? ?

The British Government would not acquiesce In the capture of any British ship in circumstances simitar to those of the Trent, and the fact of Us being brought for adjudication before the prize court, though altering the character, would not diminish the gravity of the offense. The dispatch conclude* with reference to Mr. Seward's declaration, t*at if%>e safety of the Union required it, it would have been right to detain the Trent prisoners In reply to this Earl Russell savs "Great Rritain r/niM not h??? permitted the perpetratlou of that wron?, bowerer flourishing might have been the Insurrection in the South. jta. imiD'i opinion or ihk stonk blockade at chablkston.

It wonld be the duty of the government to remove all obstructions as soon as the Union was restored. The harbor of Charleston waa act rendered inaccessible.
