Zollicoffer’s Defeat -- The Rebels “See it.”

FORTRESS MONROE, Jan. 27. – The Richmond Dispatch of Friday shows that the rebels are much perplexed at their defeat in Kentucky. – The Dispatch says: “ We regret to say that the report of the Federal victory in Kentucky, conveyed to us on Wednesday night from Northern sources, is more than confirmed by intelligence received here at the War Department.  It appears that our defeat was more decisive than even the Northern accounts had led us to believe.”
