Another Bombardment at Columbus.

--We learn that on Monday last a sharp little engagement took place between two of Lincoln's gun-boats and our batteries at Columbus. The distance between our batteries and the boats was about two miles, and the engagement lasted about an hour. The shells of the enemy generally fell short, though one or two shots passed over our entrenchments. It is believed that two shots from our batteries took effect upon the boats. ‘"Nobody hurt"’ on our side.
