From Kentucky

NEW YORK, Jan. 25. – A Memphis dispatch of the 21st reports that 12,000 Federals are at Murray, Ky., threatening Fort Henry and the Memphis and Ohio Railroad, their object being to cut off communication between Columbus and Bowling Green.  The report is perhaps founded on the recent movements from Cairo.
