The NrpubUcan's Cairo despatch says that ibo latest advices from Fort Ilonelson report that the gunboat St. Ixiuis, Captain Paulding, proceeded up the Cumberland to Ciarksville, and found the enemy abandoning that place in a panic. Two large flat boats, laden with munitions of war, were captured at the rolling mill just below Ciarksville. The rebels were moving everything to Nashville, where the next rebel stand would be made.

It will Ire seen that Decatur occupies au important position on the rail rimu, luaruiuuu as it is urn jwjiiii m wuiiu mo -sn?n? inn and 'Decatur Railroad intersects the Memphis and Charleston Railroad.

Judging front the despatch, it would appaar that tha bridge on the east Ida of Decatur had been destroyed.

A number of parsons bare pretended to discredit ibe triv report. There exist, however, very gool reeflv '* '"or believing tbat it may be true, one of which is the ,"Tort Metttenant Phelps, which wo give in ful1 to day. \"* **** th,t ,n l,ml rortlon of Alabama tho <v pedltiuoavy officers bad ' mot with the tuoal gratifying proof* of layfc^fi" Add that the 'nhahitaots "Incrcwrts [E NE THE DES' Hap of the Locality?Th Cut Off-1 ms " IT/ hickmanJJL \ f ARK^T,, IE fafHISft JLM /s ha 4 shouted tlKlr welcome and bailed their national flag c, >'alh an enthusiasm there wag no mistaking; it wafl tl gwswmo and heartfelt." These words speak volumes. r l-.vui bound down as they were, they shouted; and that (1 thoy were under the influence of rebel tyranny is toG ti evident, from the following expression taken from the ' game report, in which place the oflicer quotes their words, j as follows:?"If we dared express ourselves freely yon * would hear such a shout greeting your coining a you never heard. We know there are ruioy Unionist , among us, but a reign of terror makes us utrai t n ( our chadows." Xow, however, as they find they ar likely to get protection from tho United ?t*te? govern / , remit, they are roady to aid in carrying out th 'law and | t the constitution.

Tho they hjalee, and even before tliey receive the arms an attempt is made to cripple tho rebels, t>v sve-nug the principal means of communication between their forces in the East and those in the West. It may ho argued that tins report only applied to Florence, in Alabama. What is tho diataueu fr< m Florence to Decatur? By the railroad a littbr over forty miles, and apparently about the same by the river. As the Union fueling wits manifested along the lioiiks of tin' whole length of the j river, front Fort Henry to Florence, there can be but j 'ittle doubt of its continuance for forty miles further. ! The Union feeling is doubtless strong all through the , northern i?rt of Alabama, nmi it wants but the support J of tho government of the United Mates to cement the i i tooling so strongly as to cause a general uprising of the ? Unionists in that part of tho country. Wherever (tic ; llag of tho Union appears, it is hailed with joy and en Ihusia-m, and hundreds, nay thousands, will, if opportu- I uily be offered, Uock to the standard of true liberty.
