leave Harlan to-day. A party ef moonshiners reached here to-day from Harlan, who stated that a party left Harlan oa the sixteenth, but they were not after a band ot outlaws, but, from what was finally learned, they were after Wils Howard, who is supposed to be Bear Martin's Fork, getting bp a band to release Jennings, as soon aa the soldiers start with him from Harlan. He has been cleared on one of Lis murder cases, and parties are titere with requisition papers ready to rearrest and take him to Missouri, where be is wanted to answer a charge of murder. If aa attempt ia made by Howard and his party to release Jennings, there will be warfare ia the bloodiest sense; for it is reported that Caps. Gaither has already issued orders to shoot Jennings tho first one. should saeh aa attempt be made. Anxious fathers aad brothers of the militia from Harrodsburg reached this place thia morning, determined to leave for Harlan at once, but not being able to procure horses for the journey, they patiently awaited some tidings from tiie supposed field of battle.
