The following has just been received from Louisville:

LOUISVILLE, June 26, 1863.

General BURNSIDE:

J. T. Bramletter telegraphs from Columbia that Morgan's whole force is at Burkesville, but on the opposite side of the river. Grigsby's regiment is certainly there. Twenty of them were in Burkesville yesterday. Pegram's men are dismounted. The river is fordable. Branmlette regards this perfectly reliable, having obtained his information from a gentleman who was at Burkesville yesterday and saw the rebels there. Number of the enemy not ascertained.

Very respectfully,

A. C. SEMPLE,

Assistant Adjutant-General.

A. E. BURNSIDE,

Major-General.
