Suspicious movements of Federal vessels.

Nashville, Jan, 20.
--There has been a Federal movement up the Tennessee and Cumberland rivers, but it must have been a mere feint. The Federals fired a few shells from their gun-boats into the woods below Fort Henry, but the gun-boats did not come within the range of our guns.

The latest intelligence reports that the Federals have retired.

A few Federal gun-boats came within three or four miles of Fort Donelson on Saturday, but they returned after firing a few shots in the woods.

[Official confirmation, substantially, of the above has been received.]
