Memphis, Dec. 3.
--On Sunday last several Federal gun-boats came in sight of Columbus, Ky., and five of the Confederate gun-boats chased them several miles. No capture was effected.

The Confederate steamer Grampus captured on Friday a lumber boat near Bird's Point, which had on board 175,000 feet of lumber.

The Federals have sent twelve boats loads with troops from Paducah and Cairo to St. Louis.
