Progress of Gen. Forrest. Mobile July 27. --A special dispatch to the Advertiser and Register, dated Chattanooga, 26th instant, says Col. Lawton, of the Georgia cavalry, arrived here to day with three Yankee Lieutenants prisoners captured near Nashville. General Forrest burned three bridges over Mill Creek, on the Nashville road, and had an engagement with a party of Yankees, killing ten, wounding fifteen, and capturing eight. He was within three miles of Nashville. Great excitement prevailed wherever he appeared. The patriotic lydian made his progress a grand ovation along the entire route.
