Movements in the West.

--It is stated that the Federal troops, some twenty thousand strong, lately engaged on the Cumberland and Tennessee rivers, have fallen back to Paducah. Gen. Polk, anticipating that the object of their falling back was to make a flank movement on Columbus, when the enemy is ordered forward, has ordered the bridges on Mayfield creek to be destroyed in order to impede his progress.

The Federals are presumed to be fully advised of the fact that there never has been any idea of evacuating Columbus.
